YAHOO!!!  She's awake and not furious with the Cullen family.  Well, she may give Edward down the road for leaving, but it will all work out in the end.  At least you keep telling us that ;0)

Thanks for writing.


Author's Response:

She's back and she tolerated Carlisle pretty well!  She's angry and upset, but she is also Bella and she loves them.  There's lots of angst to come, but there is also more hope than ever.

Thanks so much for reviewing!

I am so happy that Bella is awake and seems to have no ill effects from the coma.  I am sure that there are gonna be some tense and tearful moments to come but I have faith that happy times are close on the horizon.  Keep up the great work!

Author's Response:

She's awake!  And she is still Bella!  YAY!  There are still lots of difficult moments to come, but there is so much hope now!

Thanks so much for reviewing!

Yay! I'm really happy now!!!  :D

Can't wait for more. Like now. (cuz i'm greedy like that :D)


Author's Response:

The scary dying stuff is definitely in the past!  But that's not to say there's drama still to come!  But she's back and she tolerated Carlisle pretty well so there is hope!

Thanks so much for your review!

Whew!  So, she is back in the land of the living.

I really loved how she woke up and delt with... what she could deal with.

I am ecstatic for the chance to read about her first visit with Eliza and I am hoping Charlie is with her so that she can see that Charlie will be ok with her.  It is hard for her to understand that right now, I think.  We all know the expectations our parents have of us and no matter what, to a certain extent, we want to make good on these expectations.  She is a good kid, no matter how in love her and Edward are/were and how right she feels they are together she knows: 1) sex before marriage was not how she was raised to believe was ok 2) she was pregnant out of wed lock this was never ok with her upbringing 3)she ran away without a trace and made Charlie suffer.

Plus, we are talking about Bella here, she is so insecure, even more so now that she had to deal with her surrogate family abandoning her.  It will be difficult for her to believe in their devotion/commitment to her.

All I can really say about Carlisle is that my continued adoration for him is unwavering and will continue on.  He is a man's man, and hello HOT!

Anyhoo, I am wondering what the conversation between Angela and Bella will be.  I know that Bella will be thanking her but I wonder what else they will talk about.  Obviously Edward will be the major topic, but what exactly about Edward will Bella ask about?  She will be happy to hear that Edward is completely in love with Little Love.  How will she even begin to deal with knowledge that Edward is back and is ready to be a family?  I hope that she understands that she needs to make sure that Edward hears exactly what she felt, feels and why she made the decisions she made.  Edward may know exactly what she will say but I think hearing it come from bella is completely different from thinking we know what someone else feels.

Thanks for the update, I haven't reviewed on the past few updates because real life is a bitch.  Especially work.  Just know that when I get an update and read it, my day gets a little better.

This is the first FanFic I have been completely devoted to, even though I am not you (the author) I have an investment in it and it means a lot to me for your story to be successful.

Lainey : )

Author's Response:

Wow, what an incredible review?  Thank you so much for your kind words.

Bella - she's back.  She has SO much now to deal with but you're right, this is Bella.  They have so much healing to do...  Still, under it all, she loves him.  She loves all of them.  She's hurt and angry and frustrated, but she does still love them, so there is always hope. 

Carlisle - he's just... I love Carlisle.  Hot and compassionate.  Smart and strong.  Yum!

I truly am grateful for your review and all of your support!

Author's Response:

She's back!  YAY!

All I'm saying is look for chapter 41....

Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: iponeddyou (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 08:33 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

I seem to be crying a rather lot this weekend.
Funny, because, The Frays; "Never, Say Never." Came on the moment we switched to Bella's point of view. And it... sort of fit. I'd recommend listening to it if you haven't.

Other than that, my dear. You did an absolutely amazing job. I believe you hit our Bella right on the head with this. I see her responding this way. And I'm... looking forward to the obstacles we all face next−together.

"We're pulling apart and coming together again, and again. We're growing apart but we pull it together, pull it together, together again. Don't let me go, don't let me go, don't let me go."

x's and o's,
Cherolyn Renee

Author's Response:

I know that song and it's very fitting!

I am so glad I did this chapter justice.  Bella came back... Bella.  And she tolerated Carlisle fairly well.  She's hurt and frustrated and angry, but she still loves them and is willing to hear them out.  Edward is definitely going to be the hardest.

Thank you so very much for your review!

Reviewer: twilight girly 1901 (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 08:28 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

can you have edward dance to "i like big butts" please? haha that would be hilarious :] thanks!

Author's Response:

Oh. My. God.  I have tears running down my face that is such a funny thought!

Thanks so much for that!

Reviewer: dinx (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 08:28 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

So glad she's awake. I am eagerly looking forward to her meeting her baby for the first time and talking to Edward. It would be even better if he could be present when she sees the baby. I want to see his reaction to it. I so want them to be a happy family! Another great chapter. I hope that you update again soon! I really love this story.

Author's Response:

I am so glad you are enjoying the story.  We have a little way to go before she sees Little Love and Edward, but it's coming and I think you're going to be very happy when you read it.

Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: Vero (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 08:22 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

So glad she's awake. Cant wait for Edward and her to be able to talk and have their little girl together

Author's Response:

She's back!  It's going to take some time for she and Edward to get to the point where they can work it out, but they'll get there.  Thank you for reviewing!

Reviewer: Purple83 (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 08:22 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

Thank so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: NicoleRea (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 08:05 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

Yay, she's awake!  Can't wait to see the ExB confrontation/conversation.

Author's Response:

She's awake!  And she tolerated Carlisle pretty well!  It bodes well for the rest of them!

Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: KelseyJane (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:55 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

Awesome she's awake! Ahhh, now for all the drama that comes with waking up from a coma! haha! Great chapter!

Author's Response:

She's back!  There's so much healing to do and so much drama that goes along with it!

Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: Leanne (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:52 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

I am so happy to see your update, and hugely happy to have her awake and aware... glad to see she's ok with Daddy C too, just hoping her Edward reunion comes soon and she lets him be a part of Elizabeths life. Hopefully Angela will stand up for him.

Author's Response: She's finally back! Now the healing can begin - and so it does with Dr Daddy. Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: jimmy7660 (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:50 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

Yeah!!! Bella is awake!!  The only thing that I would change about this chapter is that I wished it was longer.  I get so into this story that I don't want it to end.  You did an excellent job with this and I can't wait until Bella and Edward have to face one another for the first time.  Lots to look forward to with this story!!!  Great job!!!!!

Author's Response: I am really glad you enjoyed it. There is so much healing left to do. I will try to be faster on the next update! Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: lee723 (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:50 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

*cry* *Bawl* Yes It was very sad....AND very Good cause I've been dying for her to wake up. I also don't expect this to be easy at all.
To be honest if I was in her position, as relieved as I'd be that everything was alright and what not and that they cared and came to see me.
I'd still be a bit angry, i wouldn't think Bella would be all happy go lucky and everything would be fine and they'd ride off into the sunset.

Although I wish it could be that easy *sigh*

I did love how she KNEW the hair would be the one thing she'd inherit from her father. The Hair won in the genetic lottery, there's no doubting who is the papa.
DaddyWard!!! lol. *sigh* I love that he's a daddy.

Looking forward to what ever Heart Fail you have in store for me lol.

Author's Response:

LOL!  Thanks so much for your amazing review!

Bella still loves these people - she may be angry and hurt but she also is soo glad to see them again.  She's just... torn and wary.

Alas, it won't' be easy.  There's SO much healing to do.  But at least now there's a chance to fix it all.

Thank you so very much for all of your support!

Reviewer: Saturn (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:49 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

Yea, she's awake.  I've missed this story - for some reason it seemed like a long time between updates (or it was my crazy life - I don't know).

I'm happy she's awake and hopefully she and Edward can be happy - soon..




Author's Response:

It was long - the validation queues are really busy at the moment so it took 6 days from the time I submitted until it posted.  The validators do a great job though, so we just have to be patient!

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!

Reviewer: too far gone (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:39 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

She's awake!  What a beautiful job you did with her coming back to the surface.  I can't wait for her to see Edward, Charlie, and Elizabeth.  Great Chapter!

Author's Response:

She's back!  I'm so glad you are enjoying the story!  You'll get all those reunions soon!

Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: MsLessa (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:38 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

Hooray she's awake.  And she didn't have a total meltdown yet. Much loves to ya.

Though I have to say the timing of your author's note at the end. *chuckles* Was listening to Lady Marmalade and had a quick flash off the four Cullen men singing that.  I don't know whether to laugh or be scared but I'm sure Emmett would have a blast doing it.

Author's Response:

She's BACK!

And you guys are killing me with your Cullen/song choices.  I can almost picture that and I'm giggling insanely at the thought - particularly Emmett!

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!

Reviewer: AJ04 (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:32 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

OH MY GOD Bella is awake...oh will she let Edward back in but first and foremost I can't wait for her to meet little Elizabeth... Much love to you!

BTW discovered Becoming the Swan and am already anxious for more...

Author's Response:

She's back!  Neither she nor Little Love are stable enough to be moved, but it's coming!  Not much longer now!

And YAY!  Glad you like ... Becomes the Swan!  We submitted the next chapter today!

Thanks so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: shouldbegraceful (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:27 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

Haha Don't trust a ho, and i expect to have edward is assless chaps! haha

Author's Response:

LOL!  OK, I'm dying over here.  That's fricken awesome!  ::: giggles insanely ::::

Reviewer: nwalto (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:25 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

THANK YOU for bringing her out of the coma -- you're right, we've been impatient for the BIG REUNION!

I know it's been your approach, but we'd be SO GRATEFUL if you would wait only a few chapters for the BIG ONE. So Angela's next, and Charlie probably after that, but PLEASE (begging you here), make it E after that ... not Alice+Jasper, not Esme, etc. You'll of course want to write us about all of their reactions and reunions, but LATER, please!!!
(Do you sense the desperation here?)

Love the story and your wonderful writing!

Author's Response:

I will give you this - their first sight of each other, and it is a TOUGH scene - is chapter 41.

There are a few things that have to happen first.  And she needs to work up to Edward.  But trust me, I've already written it and it's worth it.

Thank you for reading and reviewing!

Reviewer: Chalice Cullen (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:24 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

Happy smile! Bella isn't being too difficult huh? You are exactly on with the characterization. Bella, our traditional Bella, would be curious, frightened, and thankful at first. Carlisle is so great, ain't he?

Sorry Esme, but I'm picking your man-meat for my dance..

So yeah..

Carlisle. Sex on Fire. Scrubs and a lab coat.

Author's Response:

Oh damn.  I needed a personal moment with your choice of Cullen and song!  ::: shakes naughty thoughts from head :::

Yes, Bella tolerated Carlisle pretty well.  Wary of him, but willing to accept his comfort and his answers.  There's still a lot of healing to do, but I think they all are in this for the haul now.

Thank you for reviewing!

Reviewer: Beans827 (Signed) · Date: August 30, 2009 07:22 PM · On: Chapter 35 - Resurfacing

I want Edward singing "I'd Rather Be With You" by Josh Radin...he needs to sing that to Bella.  That would be sweet!!!

Great chapter.  Glad she's back.  And I just love me some Carlisle.  He's THE BEST!  Can't wait till she finds out Edward named tha baby.  Thanks for writing.  Great job as usual.

Author's Response:

Nice Cullen/song choice!

YAY!  She's back!  I love me some Carlisle as well.  He managed to make her feel comforted despite everything.  There's still so much healing to do.

Thanks so much for reviewing!
