    This and Best For Me are my total favorites of yours. I’d pick one but that would be like picking which of my two hands to cut off. I rather like both my hands. Particularly attatched to my body. I don’t know if my point was made.

    I love A Year in the Life. There is my point.

    There’s a saying that goes something like “how can you know what happiness is unless you know about sorrow?” and that’s the perfect summation for this story. Spencer is in a very dark place in her life, not as dark as it has been but she’s still pretty broken and she’s more or less just going through the motions and surviving, not really living. Then she runs across Ashley and her existence is thrown upside down, she can’t help but start to experience life for the first time in a long time and it’s hard and sometimes it’s so fucking painful she can barely stand it but Ashley is there for her and completely awesome and she does stand it and things start slowly getting better but it’s like a false dawn because there are things she’s too afraid to mention because she thinks that nobody can love and accept her if they really get to know about her and her past. Gah. It’s just so fucking heartbreaking at times, I seriously just adore it. Like if it were possible I’d want to have babies with this story and have little Month In The Life’s running around. It’s not my favorite story of yours but if it weren’t for Precious Things (which is what the French like to call “le fucking masterpiece”) this would be an easy choice.

    I should probably also mention that thrown in among the heartbreaking angst and life affirming happiness when things go well for Spencer it’s also quite funny at times. I can only imagine what Spencer’s workmates down in the dungeony mail room thought of her. And there’s some smut. Some amazing smut. Like on a scale of 1 to smut this is pretty much smutty-smut-smut. OK, it’s not really that smutty but it’s pretty fucking hot when it happens and that’s how it should be.

    Wow. Finally took the time to read that one. What a strange feeling that left me with. It was hard to visualize Spencer in that way, which is the beauty of fiction I suppose. That’s a story that is gonna stick with me for a while, and I love slash hate that. It could not have been any hotter when it was hot. The talent behind all of these fics is amazing. I sometimes think I can write, but these are above and beyond anything else out there. Thanks for sharing all of these stories. They are this wierd bitter sweet experience for me upon every read. But that just goes to show how good you two really are.

    I finished reading this yesterday. I think this story is beautiful. It’s great to be able to witness how Spencer struggles to get rid of her old self and embraces her new life with Ashley’s support. And oh they’re so cute together!

    i’m going to re-read. can’t get enough. good job Clom!

  13. Posted 11 January 2012 at 6.49am | Permalink

    Hi Clom! We haven’t met, but I have been lurking for months now, reading and then re-reading everything on this site. The only thing I haven’t read more than once is this story, as I cannot seem to open it on my iPad. Please, PLEASE can this be the next eBook? (I love those btw)
    I have come down from the lurker tree to tell you how wonderful you and Dev are for posting these fantastic, beautiful, and yes, occasionally smutty stories (thank you!) now please? I promise not to whine for updates if you do this…. It’s driving me crazy not being able to read this one..

    So um. I’m pretty sure that I read this a long long time ago. But as I can’t seem to download it to my phone (my only source of internet for a good while) I would love it if u could maybe post it on here like the others? Even not doing chapters but like 1 long post would be fine. Any way that I could read it really lol. So ya.. Plz?

    All 50+ chapters need beta’d because only the originals survive and not the beta’d versions. It is literally weeks of work. It’s on my list, but I’m not promising anything.

    [PS One long post would be way too massive for server loading and would take about 30mins to load on your phone, even on the best 3G signal]

    I got a friend to download it for me, and then she saved it to my sky drive. I can access that with my iPad, Stacey, can you get someone to do that for you? Dev, when I saw the sheer size of it, I realized how big a request that was! Sorry! It was an awfully good story though…

    Can I put a vote in for the ebook version of this one too? It’s my favorite one.

    Well damn, have been really looking forward to reading this but can’t as the links don’t appear to work and I can’t get ebooks, most sad times. Any chance of uploading it to this site, oh dearest Devje?

    I now have the file. I’ll find somewhere to post it and update the links. Not promising it’ll be in the next couple of days, as I’m not on holiday!

  24. Clom
    Posted 23 November 2012 at 8.20am | Permalink

    Or we could post it chapter by chapter…

  25. Posted 23 November 2012 at 2.53pm | Permalink

    Clom is an evil genius sometimes…

  26. Devje
    Posted 4 December 2012 at 3.53pm | Permalink

    No matter what Clom says, I have no time for re-betaing 50 chapters right now. I have updated the link instead.

    Just FYI, the zip file contains the documents with edits/changes/comments showing, perhaps the beta’d version you sent back instead of the final product?

  28. Devje
    Posted 5 December 2012 at 3.13pm | Permalink

    Interesting. I hadn’t opened the zip file. I just posted what Clom sent me.

    I don’t have MS Word, so I can’t replicate what you’re seeing, but I edit in plain txt files and have never used tracked changes, so they’re not my edits.

    I love that it has the edits. It’s fun to see them and all the little comments. I feel like I was smiling for years reading them.

    The link to this fic doesn’t work anymore. Can someone assist? I would appreciate it.
