|Reviews for Eulogies and Post It Notes Can Change the World!|
| LethargicLove 6/13/07 . chapter 1
I've been meaning to review this for ages, but never seemed to have the time especially since I have my finals this week. Anyway, I really like the original take on the "secret admirer love notes" cliche. Post-its? Genius, haha.
I've also noticed that you seem to have a thing for writing about loners. First Piper and Donovan were loners, Piper in the true sense and Donovan in the sense that he didn't really have anyone he could call a "true" or "best" friend. Then there's Andrew in his story, and now Jack is a loner the same way Donovan is. Or maybe I'm just imagining it? Anyway, I hope you write another one shot, they're my favorite kind of stories, haha. It's true.

I love this story...it's so cute. I really love the main character she is very quirky, but she also has a great sense of who she is. Great job.

That was long.
I LOVED IT.
It was written very well, and nothing seemed too awkward or out of place. Everything transitioned nicely, from one sentence to the next. I liked that, as some authors seem to have trouble in the area.
The wording was magnificent, and as usual, the plot was unique and charming. This is a keeper.

Wow! I love this story. It was so cute/funny/sweet! I couldn't stop reading once I started. I loved how spunky Abe was. Although the story is a little cliche, it had originality to it which made it so much more interesting to read. The ending was a bit predictable but I couldn't wait to find out what happened. You're an amazingly talented writer and I can't wait to read more of your creations! x

CUTE! I absolutely adored it! I can't hink of any critiques to make on it! Lovely story! Keep up the good writing!

Excellent story. I loved everything about it, the characters, the setting, the speed, EVERYTHING! It is a genius idea, the Post-It Tidbit Wisdom. And the Eulogy Endeavour too! you're right, we don't know how to express our love and care for our important people anymore, I think we all lose that when we go through adolescence. Kids always do that, but I guess that the loss of innocence makes us more reserved. We're afraid of being hurt or rejected. This was truly inspiring, wonderfully written and over all a great story. The only two things I can mention are two typos I found: "Nathanial" instead of "Nathaniel", and I think I read a "my" instead of a "me" or vice versa, but when I read it again (far too quickly to enjoy it for a second time) I didn't find it, so maybe I imagined it.
Until the next story!

Aww. That was sweet and inspirational all at once. I loved your characters, and they whole premise, it was brilliantly written, and amazingly done.
As an obsessive quoter myself, I have to say the quoting parts were brilliant and hilarious, and the way all of the characters care about each other is so great.
| brittle hearts 6/8/07 . chapter 1
Aww, that was so cute! I loved the smooth flowing writing and the character development, even if it was just a one-shot. Beautiful work.

Okay..wow. Wow. Wowowowowowowowow. WOW.
That was just gorgeous.
Usually, when I see a short scroll-bar-thinger on the far right side of the screen, I scream like a little girl and click the back arrow to find a shorter story (with a longer scroll-bar-thinger). Seriously, I have no patience for long stories if they're one-partners, or long chapters in regular stories. I suck like that.
But I read the first few paragraphs of this story, and I was way too interested to back out. I tried to X the page out 'cause I knew I had a lot of math homework, but you had me at "Babette." XD I love that lady! And, well, after that, I couldn't tear my eyes away from the screen. And that's just...amazing. Seriously. I've got the shortest attention span e-v-e-r, and it takes a lot to maintain my interest. I suck like that, too. Fortunately, you rocked.
Abe. Pahah! That's gotta be the best nickname ever. Cracks me up every time. :DD
And what are you, Queen of Pop Culture? . Nobody knows who I'm talking about when I say bug-eyed Geri. Finally, someone who UNDERSTANDS me! x)
Gilmore Girls, huh? XD Since you mentioned the show, I kept imagining Jack as Jess (-drools-), but then you said he was tall and All-American...and I was like "weh?" So I imagined him as a Jess-Tristan-ClarkKent cross...and let me tell you, he was a hottie. XD
Alright, you really didn't need to know that.
But you DO need to know that I loved the quotes. Honestly, I did. I have a bunch of Desmond Tutu, Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, etc. quotes posted around my room on psychedelically colored index cards, too. But I never ever got the idea of doing anything like Abe, and now I think she's a genius. Well, you're a genius. Yay! :)
And your vocabulary? (-low whistle-) I LOVE seeing big words on internet stories, and I love your writing style. This story had a sort of casual sophistication that I don't cross on ficpress often. More kudos and brownie points and sugar love for you.
And your CHARACTERS! Honestly! Where the heck do you get off shaping the most quirk-ily awesome 3-dimensional characters that I felt like I knew f-o-r-e-v-e-r in a one-shot? Just who do you think you are, mister?
Mhmm, Jewish people DO have the most awesome food ever. I celebrated Passover a few months ago with some Jewish friends; I learned so much, AND the bread was amazing. Yep, even if it was unleavened. Yay for matzah! :DD
I know I wanted to say more in this review, but...I forgot. I just want to let you know that this was absolutely b-r-i-l-l-i-a-n-t and you've got some sort of talent, my friend. Unique and awesomely amazing.
'cept it's NathaniEl Hawthorne, not Nathanial. ;) Lol. Yeah, that's my one (and only) qualm.
Please keep writing for the sake of my gorgeousficpressliterature-deprived soul.

Aww, super-cute. And the wit, the quotations, the eulogies and the slowly unfolding romance - absolutely adorable. I love it.

Aw, this is a cute story. You probably could have expanded it and made it into a series, if you wanted to, but it did make a wonderful short story. I enjoyed it very much keep up the good work.
