    Unbelievably sweet, and perfectly formed.
    (The couplets and haiku used in the story were also very good – endearing and appropriate. I don't know if they were written by the author or borrowed from somewhere else: if the author wrote them, I am impressed by their skill; if they chose them from others' work, I commend their taste.)

    Almost perfect – though I'm not sure what, if anything, I'd change to achieve perfection – for what it is.

    I would really like to see more of these characters in this universe, but, alas, this seems to fairly definitely be a one-shot.

    Summary

    'When Quinn Fabray first arrives in Lima, Ohio, she is still Lucy. It's not exactly what she initially planned for her fresh start in this new town. In fact, she intended to use the proposed move to reinvent herself completely. But that was all quickly and painfully derailed when her mother received a panicked phone call from Boston.'

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A beautiful, perfect (or near perfect) character study of a sibling doing their best to support a suicidal older sibling and survive themselves in the aftermath. Despite the subject necessarily involving the portrayal of angst, the angst never becomes pointless, tedious, self-indulgent or self-absorbed.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A 'soulmates' story that's actually done well; set in the 'real world' with plausible consequences. And despite the circumstances being inescapably angst-ridden, the angst is not overwhelming, overdone or out of place, nor does it feel artificially constructed, although Rachel's failure to identify her soulmate until the end of the story - due to Quinn using her middle name in her normal life - is perhaps very slightly contrived (despite the reason for it making sense in context).
