|Reviews for On the Way to Ever After: Ivy and Miguel Tell All|
| kyrric.fictionpresspaperweight 3/17/11 . chapter 15
OH. MY. GOSH. UPDATE. :dies:
Yep. This may be the most inconvenient thing ever, because now I have to read it because waiting until after all my work is done is simply not an option, because I know that this will be amazing and I won't be able to concentrate until I know what happens.
AND YOU UPDATED. My month considers itself made. Yay.
I'm going to review and read simultaenously. It will be like a blow-by-bow account of a boxing match, only, less punching. Well. Maybe. Depends on who features here and how much Migs and/or Ivy dislike them. What can I say, I'm basied toward awesome.
Oh gosh. Double length? You do this to torture me, I just know it. But it's okay, because you're amazing and this is one of my favourite stories ever. EVER.
Okay, I had to go and re-read the previous chapter to re-accquaint myself with everything that's happening. I don't like this Ian kid. Bloody upstart.
BUT YAY MIGS. Jerkface is my new favourite word. Ha. I am smiling LIKE A FOOL in front of my computer, and it's your fault and MIGSMIGSMIGS. I've missed reading about him so much.
Sigh. Miscommunication right there. I'd love to smack both of them over the head and explain: 'He loves YOU.' 'And that girl over there? The short, very pretty one? SHE LOVES YOU BACK'. Grah. I feel so sorry for him, I do. So much self doubt. And he has to sit there and watch Ivy get all prettied up and get photographed with that loser, and he's not going to like it, and why are you doing this to poor Migs?
However, I am once again reminded of how REAL these people seem, and how wonderful your writing is. The characterisation is so amazingly wonderful that it makes me both very happy and very jealous at the same time.
Haha, loving Orion. He's such a headcase. And someone nice should take him to Paris someday, I think he'd like that. He's crazy in a good way. And this is wonderful. So far. You always throw in something horrific, and now I'm all tense and nervous for these two very awkward people. Well. He's awkward. She's just awkward around him. Which is highly entertaining AND WOW YOU WRITE LIKE YOU WERE BORN WITH A PEN IN YOUR HAND. Or a keyboard. Or something.
Migs has the most awesome vernacular ever. I love the way he talks, I wish I talked like him. The sarcasm! The wit! It's incredible (like you).
Yep, okay, Ian is like Ivy's HIDEOUS excuse for an uncle, only younger and a teeny bit less of a slimeball, with a goodly helping of sleaze. And I don't care if he's called 'Black Sugar' and looks like a young Adonis, I detest him, because Migs does. :waves flag:
"...wishing bitterly that someone had thought to warn me that falling in love would annihilate my will power, my pride and my survival instinct." Could've told him that myself, the poor kid. It's sad, they're both just very misinformed. Oh, it's killing me. You're killing me. But it's a good kind. I think.
I KNEW IT. THEY FOUGHT. I BLAME YOU. And Ivy, actually. Just... Argh. I kept willing it to un-happen. And it didn't work. I suppose it keeps it real and flowing and conflict is the essence of writing and all, but seriously, haven't these two had enough problems already? Why are they so clueless about each other? Aren't they SUPPOSED to be best friends who know each other very well. Some people are just TOO BLIND. It's infuriating. They should kiss or something already. :keeps reading:
And now she's ignoring him, and Ian is ASKING TO HAVE HIS FACE BLOWN OFF WITH A SHOTGUN. Alright. I am not pleased. If this doesn't have a happy ending I will be VERY SAD.
And happy too, actually, because I just got a hit of this story, and it's like drugs, and I don't care that I'm forgetting my work that is due in 12 hours, this is too amazing. I don't know if I can tell you anything good that I haven't already said...
And yay, they're back to being friends. I have this warm, fuzzy feeling inside that's better than chocolates and ice-cream and expensive books all at the same time. Speaking of books. Take this to a publisher. If they don't love it, send them to me. You've got the most amazing talent. Truly - SKoW doesn't lie. Congrats for that, by the way. )
FIREWORKS. THEY KISSED OH WOW FINALLY WOW. JUST WOW. AND AS IF LEAVE IT THERE! Just so you know, it will KILL me if i have to wait another year for an update. You must not kill me. Because then there would be no-one to head up your fanclub and shoot people like Ivy's slimeball Uncle and jerkfaces like Ian.
:screams: THEY KISSED. It took long enough. I'm so excited and happy.
Yes. This is the best drama.. story.. literature.. thing ever. It's better than soap-opera, it's magic. MAGIC.
And now I'm off to work. Migs would not be impressed by my terrible work ethic. Now I have to fix it. For him. He's a good influence.
As always, I love this story, and your writing and I hope that you're fine and okay and WRITING LOTS AND LOTS.
Ghost speech-writing sounds like a bit of a thankless job. But then again, you write insanely well, so who would pass up the opportunity to say something wrtten by you? Just saying.
And also just saying, updates make me happy )

I'm sorry, I have a hard time believing this story was nominated for any kind of award-other than Most Disgusting-when its theme is pedophilia.
| Skyterra 3/16/11 . chapter 15
d'aww... Yay! I like long chapters. Good luck on your other works (but still write this one! I love it!)
| lululemon13 3/16/11 . chapter 15
Yes! Finally! It's been so long I had to go back and reread the previous chapters to remind myself what happened. The emotions were so well portrayed. The jealousy on both parts were shown while at the same time it was understandable that both sides wouldn't know that the other is jealous. Loved it! Hope you'll finish this story.
| liv-star 3/16/11 . chapter 15
GAH! This is too cute! The ending scene, the blushes, the light touches, and finally, The Kiss. XO No matter how long I have to wait for the next chapter, it is always worth the wait. Also, while reading the parts where Miguel is jealous and beating himself up, I constantly remind myself that they are TOGETHER and this is all past tense... but the tension and emotions are still vivid and I love it. And the KISS! I think my inner fangirl fried at the time Miguel's brain did. XD Thanks for the update, and can't wait to read what happens next!
| loveysoul 3/16/11 . chapter 15
AH. YOU UPDATED! * screams again! *
I am going to read the whole story from chapter 1 to refresh my memory.
THANK YOU KAMI-SAMI. THANK YOU!
| The Russian 3/9/11 . chapter 14
very nicely done
I can't wait for you to upload the next chapter
oh and by the by, have you heard the song "Hands Clean" by Alannis Morisette? It goes very nicely with this situation. You might like it ;)
| choc me 1/22/11 . chapter 7
P.s: I can't help it I just had to listen to Nick lachey again (what with my Ivy-Miguel withdrawal) and my tummy's fluttering n filled with fuzzy warmth So thx for that! I can't believe I'm 'crushing' on a 13 year old! (I'm in my twenties mind u) and I feel weird abt it feeling so normal! Oh my days! Like Ivy said I really hope I'm not a deviant too!
Anyway...love ur story ! !
| choc me 1/22/11 . chapter 5
Just thought I'd stick to my word about bothering u from time to time abt updating
Seriously though, ur story is very much loved and appreciated! Don't forget that...hope it'll give u some motivation for writing. Good luck with that..and hope to read more soon!
| ValSilph 1/5/11 . chapter 14
Oh. My. Gosh!
I am basically in love with Migs, and Ivy, and I think I may just die if you don't update soon!
Pretty pretty please? I"m begging here :P
| noriepie 12/28/10 . chapter 14
This story is too good to be left unfinished.
| choc me 12/18/10 . chapter 4
Thx for ur reply :) It's ok, I wasn't really expecting u to reply, cause that's what happens more often than not. So it's pretty awesome that u did!
I'm really glad u like my reviews. I was afraid u'd think I was obsessed or something And I think it's incredibly awesome that the very song I've been associating with this story is the one u've been listening to for Miguel's part! There's this bit in the song that feels especially: Cause I want you and I feel you/ crawling underneath my skin/ like a hunger, like a burning/ to find a place Ive never been/
I've never watched the avatar ur talking abt, although I know of it. I'll definitely take a look at that now ;)
So take care and happy holidays!

Hey Argh Fp cut off the rest of my last review! Blah I'll just write it again! There goes:
| choc me 12/8/10 . chapter 2
Hi! Me again! Sry for spamming and stuff! I just woke up and guess what I did? I checked my email for an alert for this story ! Haven't even had breakfast yet or whatever.. I just miss them T_T (sry for the pressure, and I DO understand that it can take quite a while for u to find time to update - I'll just be bugging u from time to time abt it if u dont mind )
I just love this story u know? The characters feel so real (sigh) I'm still miffed about the low review count! Like I said, this story is amazing n should have had much much more attention! Arggh
But then again I can understand that some ppl would be turned off by the age gap. I was a lil bit doubtful too at first, but that was totally forgotten after the first 2 chapters! Miguel is so mature and has so much depth that u cant think of him as a kid u know? and Ivy acts like such a kid, they just complement each other perfectly!
I like their friends a lot too, wish I had friends like that, so supportive and funny and teasing and yet very caring...
Lolo and Lola are just priceless! Despite being a riot and quite a bit scary, they're obviously wiser than Miguel's family - except for Reese, who despite her young age is very perceptive!
About Julio. Yuck. Double, triple Yuck! I have my own idea of what happened actually...
And I think Ivy is very brave and selfless to dig up the strength to put up a cheerful facade for the sake of everyone else..wish i could be like that too pfftt
Btw, my song for this now is "what's left of me" by Nick lachey. The lyrics don't fit really, but I was listening to that while reading ur story and I tend to associate things. There's just this bit that actually fits and has become my fav part of the song:
| choc me 12/8/10 . chapter 1
Ok done! :( That's where u stopped around 8 months back swearing the next chapter would be out during the week :P
No really, I know how life n work especially can get in the way..but I really do hope you'll be updating soon. I'm already so attached to the characters, I'll be missing them for some time now. And the thing is, the longer u take to update, the more the readers are disconnected with the story, u know? like it's hard to remember what happened before and how u were so drawn into the story.
I'm in love with Miguel...I can't believe anyone can be so sweet without being cheesy. And Miguel drunk is...just wow...I feel like a fan girl or something!
I don't wanna read anythng else now! I want more of Miguel and Ivy! I'll probably re-read the whole thing after a few days of withdrawal :)
