This story. This freaking story has consumed my life for like a month and it was completely worth it. I laughed, I cried (a lot) and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, as devastatingly perfect as it was. Thanks for breaking my heart and then continuing to piece it back together.

I just read this story for the first time and it was amazing! I lost someone to cancer several years ago, and the thoughts going through Kurt's head about waiting rooms and hospitals hit close to home. This was so beautiful and well written. Thank you for sharing. It hurt in all the right ways.

ok so this story was absolutely insane. i saw someone recommend this fic on tumblr and gave it a shot. i was incredibly hesitant at first because of the title. it screamed unhappy ending and I had just finished "Light in the Loafers" and while it was a good story, I sort of had to just keep on trucking through it. It got hard to read at points where there were lulls in the story and everything got repetitive. And then by the end, I felt like I had wasted my time because they didn't even end up together and I'm a total sucker for a happy ending. But, where was I?
Anyway, I finally started to read this story, and, I've been reading the award winning fics on here and while they are all obviously great, yours seemed truly deseving of that little ribbon in the corner. I thought this story was going to be all sad, all about Blaine's cancer and how it was tearing him and Kurt apart and then he died in the end leaving a broken and distraught Kurt. As I read though, I was so truly impressed by how accurately you portrayed their relationship. I loved the flashbacks to the beginning, the comfortability (if that's even a word) that Kurt and Blaine shared from the beginning that never faltered once, the way they were so sweetly in love and everyone knew it and just let it happen and poked fun but only because they knew how they were perfect for each other.
And I want to tell you how much this story touched me. I used to cry all the time, movies, books, tv shows, some nice words said, a mean thing said, I would cry at a lot. Then stupid boys happened and one in particular sort of hardened me. I don't remember when, but I remember at some point that I was realizing that I wasn't the same person that I used to be, that I couldn't cry as easily, and that I wasn't as happy as I used to be. I came to terms with it, just thinking that it was just maturity coming with experiences. And then last August (two days before my 18th birthday and three days before I started my first semester at college) my grandmother (my last living grandparent) died of pancreatic and liver cancer. It had all happened pretty quickly. She was diagnosed in the beginning of August and we had noticed something off a little after my graduation party which was towards the end of June. It hadn't really hit me until my cousin's graduation party of how serious the siuation was, how weak she looked, how much weight she had lost. Then when I got the call (it was a Thursday the 24th right after band camp had ended (I'm in the marching band at my college) and it had been the longest day, all the other members were walking back to their dorms and houses and I stayed on the track and talked to my dad who was just sort of trying for those stupid condolences that she was in a better place and other cliches like that). I just broke down and started sobbing, two of my new friends gave me hugs and I just didn't know what to do. I made plans with them to go home on my birthday, the viewing the day after and the funeral the day after that where I would come back and try out the whole college thing. Then I went to my first college party. But that's not the point. The point is I have so recently experienced what this felt like and I wanted to thank you. Because since my grandmothers funeral when I was the last of my family staring at the casket before they shut the lid with chest-heaving sobs wracking my whole frame and my dad still muttering those same stupid cliches that did nothing to help at this funeral or any of the many many many other funerals I've been to, I hadn't cried like that since. Being a girl, sometimes you just need to cry. I came dangerously close when I was watching the whole Karovsky thing in the third season while Blaine sang Cough Syrup, the sobs were there but not the tears. Not fot lack of trying. But (sorry for all that rambling) The point is that this story made me cry chest heaving, frame wracking sobs with wet sticky tears stained black from mascara and eye-liner (which was waterproof which made me love it even more) for the first time in awhile and it had felt so good. But these tears happened when they extuberated him. I honestly had to take a day or two break from finishing because this story had crushed all my hopes of love before I had even finished it. I had to read Little Numbers in the mean time to get the love back in but there was still that feeling that my head was like "Nope. They're both gonna die. He's gonna die before him and then he's gonna kill himself from the sadness because how can you live without your soulmate? And what's the point of a soul mate if it doesn't last forver?" But then I told myself I needed to finish this story and get some closure on these feelings and then when Kurt started running, I knew it was good and I was just like HOLY SHIT. And I was so happy and now I'm in love with this story and want to read it again. Just thank you for this. This was such an incredible read. I want to hug you and applaud you and give you a high five and just everything. But all I can do is sing your praises and add this to my favorite's list.

Wow. First, I'm sorry this won't be the perfect review you deserve. I'm a emotional mess and my brain isn't really working properly right now. I still wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed this story. What a painful but beautiful journey it was. You have a gift, don't ever stop writing. Thank you for sharing this masterpiece with us, it was a true honor to read your work.

I've see recs for this story on Tumblr but I've put off reading it because I actually like to keep my heart from being ripped out of my chest and stomped on but I finally gave in and I can feel my heart being torn into tiny pieces with every new chapter I read.

Hey :) Some while ago I read your fic called "Counting Stars" and since that you became one of my favourite (if not the most favourite) author. So I waited a long time until "If I Die Young" got finished, because I don't usually read unfinished fics. And now I can just say wow, because this was even better than "Counting Stars". While reading this fic, there were times where I needed a moment to remind myself that this is not real, that Blaine isn't dying. That Blaine himself isn't real. But if all felt so very, very real! I don't remember crying so much in any other fic I've read. My favourite moment in the story was the morning after Trip's birthday party, where Kurt and Blaine were laying in bed together and talking. They were so peaceful and happy. Also the scene after Kurt had read Blaine's journal was amazing. Actually the whole fic is amazing, but those parts stood out the most for me. I absolutely fell in love with Trip, which I definitely didn't expect in the beginning when he just showed up. And yaaay for using Kings And Queens in the story :) It's one of my favourite songs ever. And in the end, thank you for writing this story and giving me (and others) a mind blowing experience while reading it.

Oh my god. You have no idea how much I cried reading this story. Man, I cried buckets! It is written beautifully, you really should look into writing a book- I for one would buy it in an instant! your characters are beautiful, of course Kurt and Blaine are adorable. But TRIP! And his witty one liners had me cracking up every time! And honestly the last 6(?) chapters absolutely killed me, I had no idea how it was going to end- but wow. Just wow. The chapter where Kurt goes home to the flowers, and the journal letters, in the apartment is the single most emotional thing I have ever read in my life. I know I am gushing but I cannot praise you enough on your writing talent! god I wish I could give more than 10 in the rating! Everyone needs to read this fic! Thank you so so much!

I've been plowing my way through this since Friday morning, and it's closing in on 6am on Sunday and I just got finished. I don't think there was one single sentence throughout the last five chapters that didn't make me cry. I was doing the whole ugly crying thing, bawling like a baby because holy hell did this get to me. You told the story so well; I love your takes on the supporting characters and the original characters were another breath of fresh air (I adore Trip and where you took him). The tension you built in the penultimate chapter literally left me slack-jawed and I cried so hard when he finally woke up.
This is an incredible story. Thank you for an amazing rollercoaster-ride of a journey.

You know that end scene in Titanic where Rose is halfway frozen and she realizes there is a life boat but it's leaving and she knows she has to do something; she wants to scream but all that comes out is faint and broken "come back". Well I'm Rose and your story is that boat leaving me, I just want it to come back as if my life depended on it. I never wanted this story to end because despite the ugly truth of fear, sickness, and death that we saw unravel, this story was beautiful. You made me laugh, ponder,and dream, but most of all you made me cry with these characters. I can honestly say I will miss them. To close this comment I wish to quote Blaine. Courtney, "You are perfect. You are amazing. You are my everything" -at least when it comes to fiction- Is that a good way to end a comment? I should hope so it's all I could come up with.

....well shit. Now I have to know what Blaine and forever taste like.
That was achingly and heartbreakingly beautiful. (I'm a masochist.... I'm disappointed in myself and morals because I didn't cry.)
Thank you. The fandom and I will never be able to repay you for the outcome of a year.
God Bless. <3

thank you can't even cover how happy I am that I decided to start reading this fic back in the fall. you are truly an unbelievable writer, and getting lost in this story and shedding so many tears and smiles over your amazing characters has been irreplaceable. I am obviously interested in anything and everything else you produce, and am totally your #1 fan if you ever decided to publish this as a novel (it would take the world by storm :)) so thanks again for my all time favorite fanfiction

Oh my God. Thank you so much for this fic, I think it's my ultimate favorite. I've been laughing and crying so much. Your an amazing writer and I'm definitely gonna stalk you for new stories now. Never stop writing, please. The ending was perfect and Blaine's letter was just.. Ugh. Babies ;w;
I can't even try to imagine my reaction if Blaine had died and Kurt had found that letter later.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. You're awesome and I love you.
And congrats on 200 reviews here. You deserve every single one of them. Now I'm gonna go back to my ugly sobbing over this story and this chapter. I can't thank you enough anyway.

I have enjoyed this story so much - thank you for working so hard and giving us readers something so meaningful. This is a great ending, and that letter from Blaine was unbelievable - WOW. Love these boy; love your writing.

I've been following this story since day 1, [kinda lurking a bit!] and it is seriously one of the most amazing heartbreaking, hilarious, beautiful, in-character fanfics I have ever read. I'm kind of sad it's over, but I'm so glad that they got a happy ending. Thank you for all the wonderful reading!
Date: 05/08/2012 03:10 AM Title: Tell Me We'll Never Get Used to It
Oh man. What a journey. Thank you so much for writing this. I admit, I had to let this one go for a while when I wasn't sure of Blaine's fate, but when I learned it was safe to come back I devoured it all. I ached so much throughout this, and in this chapter when I read Blaine's letter. It seems you got the message across that you wanted to with this story, while still offering a "happy" ending. I would LOVE to read more in this 'verse to learn how Kurt and Blaine's future goes. I still hold a little fear when I think about it, so it'd be wonderful to get a few glimpses of them finishing college, or maybe post-college trying to make it in their chosen careers. (Um and more Tripofsky of course!) Can't wait to see what you come up with next!
