Eloise is a character who Lost never gave us a proper explanation for, so it is always nice when fanfic writers explore her character. Love the relationship you have going between her and Richard, if she came at a young age, I can certainly see his appeal.

Thanks! Yeah, Eloise didn't really get a full backstory. I would have loved to know more about her, but in a way it's fun not knowing since it leaves room for fic and speculation. :)

“I don't want to get old. I don't want to die.”

He doesn't meet her eyes. “Yes you do.”

Ouch. Oh, Richard! But this is really nice; I like the birthdays and shared birthdays thing and I love the last line! :)

I enjoy Richard's immortality angst more than is really called for. Of course you know that already.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it, bb! :)

Oh my gosh, this is just so, so gorgeous and sad and bittersweet! I adore it so much!

I love that this sort of charts Eloise and Richard through the years, and how Eloise goes from a little girl to an older woman while Richard's this constant, appearing and reappearing in her life. The scene with their first kiss and Richard visiting the hospital after Daniel's birth are especially heartbreaking -- both of them have such tragic backstories, and you did such an amazing job intertwining them together.

Thank you, so, SO much for this lovely, lovely ficlet! :D

YAY! THANK YOU! I'm sooooo glad you like it! :D

I'm SO happy you like the whole...whatever it was I was going for, showing Eloise at different points in her life and how Richard was involved. Of all the LOST characters I've written for, I swear I think those two are my favorites to use, separately or together. There's so much left to explore for them both. Anyway, I'm rambling -- THANK YOU again, and you're more than welcome! I'm happy that you like it! ♥

This is great, I loved it! :D

More angst on Richard's immortality is always appreciated.~ Though I think he has forgotten his birthday. But it would be like Richard to evade the question like that and not give a concrete answer.

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D

Yeah, I figure he probably has forgotten, but I thought it would be interesting to toy with the idea that maybe he hasn't.
