    HOW DID I ONLY FOUND OUT ABOUT YOU TIL NOW?

    I just love the way you write! I felt like I could really sympathise - that I could feel how your characters felt. I especially loved how you wrote Vincent. He was likeable and relatable. And so realistic. I liked how some parts in his narrative were questionable, as this story was told in his biased P.O.V to his shrink. Sometimes I wondered out of the two - why they behaved in that way and what led them to do so. I liked how that could be open to interpretation.

    And Bambi. Even though we could only catch a quick glimpse of her character through Vincent’s eyes, she felt so real. They say people who die live through their loved one’s memories and with Vincent’s descriptions and dialogue, he painted a vivid picture of Bambi. I liked how you wrote, “Like water through my fingers, she was there and then she wasn’t.” That was very fitting. And I suppose that’s relating to Bambi during her lifetime when she ‘was’ with Vincent, but I suppose that can also be applied with her death in the story. She still haunted him even in her death, she wasn’t there, but she was.

    And the ending, it was perfect. Not a happily-ever-after type, but a realistic and fitting ending. I also liked how Vincent came to some kind of closure.

    Ugh, I could ramble on, but I think you get the picture, haha. I loved this story. Now, if you’d excuse me as I venture off to your other works…

    You know that I absolutely adore this story, it'll always be one of my favourites on the site.

    Your writing is so perfect, I love the short chapters that give little snapshots into different part of their lives. The sort of non-linear (I think that's the right word) timeline was super cool, I felt like we were really able to see Bambi how she was, and how Vincent saw her, in different situations and could really get a feel for her character even though it's all being told from someone's point of view other than hers. I also loved how you changed up the format of each chapter, like how you had some with just dialogue and then some that went more in depth with description. It kept everything kind of interesting and refreshing.

    I absolutely love Vincent. I felt so bad for him through the whole story and I just wanted to hug him and be like "ITS OKAY BB YOU'LL BE OKAY".

    But yeah, I could go on and on forever about how amazing this story is. I've read it so many times I lost count and it's still amazing each time In Love

    I remember reading and loving this story a long time ago and I just read it again...It's just as striking and outstanding I remember. I also really like the changes.

    Essentially I just truly, truly admire the story. Incredibly well done.

    Fae, my bae (I did this deliberately for obvious reasons), this is wonderful. I'm literally only 5 chapters in and all these chapters are so short but so captivating. You and I both know you're writing is perfect, so I ain't surprised, but I just love the plot to this story. I don't know why but I like stories where people are dead and you see the character grieve. It's just so real. I love this a lot but I didn't expect anything less from something from you In Love

    This is beautifully written, the chapters are short but contain so much emotion and detail that it's perfect. Each chapter is gripping and you end up wanting more by the end, which is sometimes hard to do with shorter chapters (I find). Great job with this :)

    Why did I catch up on the Bambi train so late?????? Vincent, sweet strong minded Vincent has such a realistic tone in his voice and his personality. I love the way he flashbacks to his memories about Bam to, in a way, explain what he's thinking to his shrink. I knew he loved her and I'm sort of glad he had the realization that Bam was the only one who could've saved herself in the end, knowing Bambi was a strong minded person herself. I concluded that Vincent and Bambi had similar personalities, as they constantly had their minds set on specific things and in the end, stick with their intentions from the start. Reading this made me think who did what and if Bambi was the "bad" character from the start since she made Vincent act and behave so harshly. God, this was written so beautifully and effortlessly.

    There was something entirely haunting about this story.

    This story is so raw, it’s so different and I absolutely love it. The amount of character we got from Bambi despite her only being present in memory was astounding, and the way you delved deep into Vincent’s thoughts was so engaging. I don’t think I’ve actually read a story that explores something as gritty and raw as this. You capture Vincent’s conflict within himself, with the teacher and with Bambi incredibly well.

    Every time a new chapter was released I got happy. I literally anticipated reading more of this story. I can also say, since I read the original, you can see that your writing has progressed a lot. I loved the use of descriptors that really draw you into the story and ultimately Vincent’s entire character. You didn’t try to sugar coat or romanticise the fact that Bambi was dead and Vincent was mourning because he was in love with her, instead you portrayed their relationship and the aftermath realistically.

    Ultimately, this story was very heartbreaking but so realistic. I’ve never really felt so much for a character in this situation as I have Vincent - you can see he is hurting in so many ways. I also absolutely love that it didn’t end with Vincent necessarily moving on - it was still gritty and sad, it was an unhappy ending but it was also closure, as not all stories can have the happiest endings. Vincent doesn’t quickly get over it, he doesn’t suddenly gain some hope, instead he is still angry and bitter. I just loved this touch.

    This is definitely not a story I am going to easily forget, as is the same with all of your writing Cute

    p.s. i am so sorry this giveaway comment is late!

    You already know I love this In Love Literally one of my favorite stories I've ever found on Mibba, and one of the few chaptered stories that I've actually finished reading. I read it non-stop till I got to the end because it's just so beautiful and heart wrenching. Your word choices and descriptions are so poetic and they invoke major feels as well as painting a vivid mental image of what's happening. I can't even say enough good things about this beautiful and heartbreaking little piece of writing magic. Swoon

    Man, this was beautiful. Every chapter was short yet packed with emotion and character, and not a single moment was lacking or lagging. Wonderful job with this. :)
