One of the many ways to make me cry

You know that moment when you read something - something so great and heartbreaking - and all the emotions you feel in your heart just pours out through your eyes? And for the life of you, you can't seem to stop it from doing so because maybe, deep down, you don't really want it to? That maybe you think the sadness was just supposed to be there? That maybe, just maybe, you wanted - needed - to feel sadness to finally understand some things in life?

That's what Bex-Chan's "Isolation" did to me.

I woke up thinking, "Yay! It is such a wonderful morning (or afternoon - semantics!). Maybe I'll just check my mail here and... Holy Crap! An update! Bex! Isolation!" I was so excited that I actually did a little dance/wiggle on my bed. I then proceeded to read it because that's just what Dramione and Isolation fans do. They drop everything they're doing or forget about whatever they were about to do (even though it's a much needed sleep - I speak from experience) and read this story.

10 minutes or so later, all happiness gone, I felt tears welling up in my eyes. Honest-to-God, broken-hearted tears gushed from my eyes (not that it was actually a surprise that I cried - I'm very emotional) and I felt the pain Draco - and everyone else - was feeling and it just made me sad to no end.

It was just that well-written! Every single word - every sentence - was like a knife through your heart. Every single paragraph full of emotions that not many know how to put into words. But Bex managed and it's what made Isolation that much more beautiful. I applaud her for it.

Even though I sincerely wish that the events in Chapter 44 didn't happen, I can live with it because it made the story better. It reminds us that Life is a big, ugly bitch who can do horrendous things like this. It reminds us that most of the time, Life does not care about who or what we love. Eventually, Life will take it away and we'll just have to cope because there's nothing we can do to change it. Most of all, Life reminds you to live it while you still can because you don'y know when the next bitch-fit will occur. And that brings me to this:

"A j-joke?" he whispered. "Here's one: Th-there were three Slytherins...Three f-fucked up Slytherins. The first f-fell in love with...with the Gryffindor's P-Princess and became g-good. The second fell in l-love with Ravenclaw's An-Angel and became good, t-too. The third...the third did...n-nothing...b-but...but he tried..."

That was a direct quote from Chapter 44 and it was simply the most unfunny & heartbreaking 'last joke.' Ever. Still, it was a job well done.

Thank you, Bex-Chan for writing this story. Many Kudos, and feels, for this fic!
