It had to end…

horse

I’m sorry! I have been mentioning the end for months now, it had to come to an end at sometime, right? It’s time I move on to my own story, redirect my time to an original.  I’m not saying no to the occasional one shot, but I make no promises. If inspiration strikes… then who knows?  

good bye

    I hope you do not change another word of the story. I loved it when you used Australian English. Paracetamol, and mate are a couple of the words I remember. It was the original prologue and firt few chapters, written as they were two years ago, that made me love your writing. What I read then, is no longer there. Please, please, don’t change it again…please 🙂

    M, haven’t been reviewing lately but I did not want to miss the chance to thank you for sharing this story with us. Even though I was one of those readers who hesitated at continuing when I read Chapter 1, I forged ahead and was forever grateful that I did 😉 Lots of twists and turns but in every moment of every chapter the fierce love these two have shared in the original and now your continuation came through…unwavering, hot, steamy, rock solid love. Everyone should be that lucky – once…..THANK YOU. I will look forward to whatever you share.

Your story, sharing with like minded people, your book club (I’ve found soooo many good books there), your one-shots, pictures, music, and side-bar links. I also appreciate that you took time to reply to your comments. It’s been a hell of a ride!

    Loved all of it, have read it twice, you really did bring both C & A back to life, but a big BUT, could you please follow this up with an epilogue like EL James did??, so that we have answers, like the next baby, What happens to Kate? What happens with Mia & Ethan?? Maybe in 5 years time??
    Ps Thank you for staying in there and and finishing the story!

    Thank you Monique for a great story. It has been wonderful sharing this journey with you. Would love to read your original story. Hopefully will get an email to advise that you have written it. Thanks for giving up you own time to indulge us crazy ladies who are in love with these characters. I am heartbroken once again that fsog has come to an end. Would have loved to see how the fallout of what has happened would affect everyone – maybe if ever you get a chance it would be great. Thank you thank you thank you. Will miss your writing.

    Dear Monique,
    I know I haven’t commented for awhile, but I HAVE been looking! I want you to know, again, how much I have loved this story…your own spin. It has been absolutely wonderful reading this meander and I also hate to see it end. Now, as a fan, I would LOVE to see an original story created by you and your gifted mind…you can write a story all your own! I am so excited to buy the book! Also, I have always told you that if you put this meander in book form, either paper or digital, I will be the first to buy it. I’m serious. Please keep posting so all of your reading fans and supporters can keep up to date. Thank you so much for sharing your story, and keep writing!!

    Thanks ! This was the 1st fan fiction I found and it is of the best stories out there. I agree with some of the others that I will miss reading Christian’s joy at the birth of the new baby and to know if Kate was pregnant too. Maybe these topics could be a couple of your ‘one & done’ stories. At least we can re-read it the new editing. Best wishes for all your future writing !

    Dear. Monique,

    It has been two years of pure joy in reading. I wish nothing more that to see and read many of your own stories with your own character because I have never been so loyal to a writer than to your work. You have great talent and I pray you will use it to you benefit. It’s time to harvest what you have sown.

    I will will wait patiently for your books and will share them as I did your writing this far. Yes, it would great to receive one shot when you have time and inspiration.

    I enjoyed the final chapter albeit in tears.

    Thank you, Dankie, Siyabonga.

    Dear Monique,
    I have been one of your silent followers for over a year and I just
    wanted to thank you for sharing your time and talent with this
    wonderful story of our two favorite lovers.
    I felt I had to say something now that it has ended.. I especially
    want to let you know that I am so appreciative that Meander
    addressed something I felt missing in EL James version. And that would be about Ana’s low self esteem and insecurities about herself with her looks and sex appeal..That is a subject that is relatable for many women I think. You used it to set up your story for her to run and
    I thought that was ingenious! She just didn’t feel that she was ever
    good enough, pretty enough, experienced enough and so on…
    I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. With talent like
    yours I know you will be successful!
    You’ve given so much; but I hope it’s not the last we’ll hear from
    you’ll gift us with one last one shot!
    Blessings always,
    yred55

    Wow Monique you certainly did not disappoint this long time follower of yours. You’re writing has had me feeling every emotion a BIG soppy romantic could feel and l loved every single word, twist, SEX SCENSE you have graced us with. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and what an end it was, unexpected too & which was a nail biter. Thank you so much for your time effort and your beautiful mind and writing. I would read and get lost in any new endeavour you create sooner rather than later. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart.
