Roswell, the characters and the story, are owned by Melinda Metz, Jason Katims and Fox Studios (although the way they have abused them I don't think they deserve them) and are used here purely for entertainment purposes.

Any additional characters or situations not mentioned in the show are the creation of my dementia.

Thanks to my good friend Ellie who helped me with this story.

Maxís thoughts and feelings as he is standing outside the observatory in ITLAITB after his fight with Liz and he thinks she has gone to Sweden.

Feedback for Iím Dying Tonight


Amazing ficlet. I love this piece even though it is so sad. Especially the part where he asks
himself if he could die of a broken heart. Wow. And the brutal honesty he has
about his actions with Tess were great.

I could totally see him not wanting to put her through the same pain in that moment and letting her
have her illusions for a bit. And I loved how he knew that she was deluding herself in
spite of all the evidence of his feelings for Liz, she would take what she could get
and try to make more out of it. Here it looks like he understood her pretty well.
I wish we could have seen him like that on the show.

But the best part IMHO was his line about Antar falling with him as their king and Tess as
their queen. Really fantastic and very Max.

Great fic, thanks for posting it.

Wow, that was really great!

I really felt for Max by the end, poor thing!

Oh! OMG you have done a great job at showing Max's point of view and not many of Roswell
fanfiction Writers do that to this extent you have done it. Even TV writers failled at
shwoing Max POV. Certainly he had no way to hold on any longer and Tess was there at
the wrong or perhaps right moment

wow..oh wow oh wow...that was excellent

That was really great! I love the line about living in denial and Antar falling with the two of them as
leaders. Max seemed so hard on himself at times though I guess that comes from the
crazy power trips he realized he had been having. Either way, it was a very interesting read.

Excellent job!
