Chapter 51: Took me days to properly read and digest all 51 chapters of this massively beautiful story. I want to write a meaningful comment but really, I am too lost for words right now. Somewhere along the 40+ chapters I was angry at Baekhyun's indecisions that he keeps dragging everyone along to wherever dark pit he was trying to go. But then eventually I can't stop crying for him. He was so broken that it's unserstandable that he'd cling to the people who'd show him affection. I don't how you did it but his characterization was so well-written that he is a whole person albeit being a broken soul. And then Chanyeol. I can't believe he still got hurt while being the soft, caring, loving person that he is. It's just unfair to be him. I wish they have a happy ending but it will all be up to your skillful hands to weave. I appreciate that your story also touched on the issues befalling idols and idol groups. I can't help but picture how it was for EXO when some members left. Definitely struck a very familiar, painful memory. This comment is not much, I just wanted to write something for you as a very little way of saying thank you for writing this story. I am anticipating the ending chapters but really it's hard to let this go. Right now, I'm cheering quietly in my heart "Rise Phoenix, rise."

Chapter 51: Oh god, i was going to lose it when Baekhyun was about to kill himself ;_; I just want Chanyeol and Baekhyun to come together, they're both hurting so much and it's just so painful :'c I just don't get why Baek didn't just come out with it to CEO Park-- he already lost it all and he knows it-- he was even about to kill himself :(-- so why would he still be so hesitant? it makes me so mad because after all of this he is still trying to repress the truth, no matter how much he seems to 'accept' it. I feel for him, though, I really do :/

Chapter 51: What a heartbreaking chapter this one was. It was so sad that he'd thought of taking such a devastating step, and that he felt like there was no other option? I'm so glad CEO Park called him at the right time though. But him not settling the lawsuit once and for all was so disappointing, that was such a bad decision! Well, atleast he's finding comfort in Jessica and Kris :").
WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO GET BACK TOGETHER IM DROWNING IN THE ANGST HELP
*snuggles into the group hug*
And cheers for your BAE fic coming out well!! I'm so so sad that this fic is coming to an end, and if you ever write side fics and stuff, THAT'D BE AWESOME.
p.s. your writing is as poignant and descriptive as ever, you're so talented
p.s. ILY TAKE CARE

Final Part-


This scene was so refreshing. It was beautiful to witness Byun experience all those emotions. It was beautiful to see him go from loneliness to uncertainty to realization.
Even though Byun finds himself surrounded by darkness, there is still light trying to make its way to him. There are still people who love him, people who support him, people who care for him, even when he doesn't deserve. It seems as if he has lost many things, but gained others, true friends. Is not the end, after all.

The end of the scene was very intriguing. Could the taller be the one taking care of Byun? Could the taller have waited outside for Byun? Could the taller have heard the desperate cry for help of Byun? Could the taller be ready to let the other back into his life? Could have the taller realized Byun has reached low bottom? Could the taller learned Byun already paid for his mistakes? Could this be the talkers come back?

Thank you for the lovely update. <3

Part 2-


Fear. Uneasiness. Anxiety. Clearly, in this scene, Byun had all the will and intention to confess the truth to Mr. Park. However, no matter how much he wanted to tell truth, or how much he knew it was the right thing to do, he just couldn't get himself to do it. Certainly, it cannot be blamed because this time he is not holding back due to cowardy nor to selfishness. He is holding back because he is trying to hold on into the only thing that is keeping him alive, the only thing that is bringing him peace, the only thing that is giving him a feel of normalcy, the only thing left to lose. He is fully aware of what the outcome of the tria will be. He knows he will lose his job, the same way he lost his family, his fiancé and his lover. He is desperately attempting to temporarily hold on to the last remain of life he has. He is trying to buy some time until the moment of imminent loss arrives. He is just trying to grasp to his job for as long as possible, he is trying to prepare himself for nothingness. He is just someone trying to survive, opting to whatever means he can find. His decision is more than reasonable. It's desperately understandable.

Sympathy. Understanding. Companionship. Evidently, those were depicted in the scene Byun sought refuge in Kris and Jessica. It amazes me the role they have been able to take possession of. Two individuals that could potentially be his enemies became his support system. They become they only people he can express himself freely with. The only people he can count on. They only people he can cry on. The only people that do not judge him. The only people who listen to him in his desperate moments. The only people who accept him for who he is, who he was and who he is trying to become. Byun found sympathy, understanding and companionship in two people he probably never expected. He has somehow found light at the end of the tunnel.
