Absolutely loved this snippet of the story, but where's the rest? Would love to know if they got together, and if Boston actually did like the yellow ones, or if he only ate them for her (:

I love your writing style! I wish this story would go on longer but even in this short space you've managed to portray so much about the characters. THey really leapt of the page as real people. Amazing work!

I really enjoyed it, nice work.

Aw. Okay, so this was extremely cute. I love their personalities. It was nice, and I especially liked the beach scene; it was super cute.

How cute. I loved it. :)

This is very cute. I love the fact that it was a one shot where the characters actually had characteristics like obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Crazy girl. I love the yellows. Don't pick on the yellows. That's racist :p (against simpsons AND skittles).
Besides. Chocolate is crap coloured, should we not eat chocolate? Hmm?
I like the story anyway. Very good. Your style is nice.

i seriously do not know what skittles are. lol. hehe have to google search that later_
anyways, i think being tall is cool too my friends envy me for being tall - which i don't believe because i'm really not tall but because they're way shorter than me, they think i'm tall which is - ugh. nevermind.
so back to the story, i think boston is pretty cool too. he cares for the environment that's what i like about him. oh yeah, SAY NO TO GLOBAL WARMING. weehee i care for the environment too by the way but not to the extent that i pick out cigarette butts in beaches nor the neighbor's garbages. ew.

I love it.
It's so cute.

I like this loose ending, it's nice. But, some things I noticed:
"I absolutely refuse to eat them. Sorry.
Not." (I originally was confused and thought she was not-ting the yellow Skittle eating, so I suggest Not on the same line as Sorry? Or maybe it's just me.)
"It was a pretty bad year for grace" (Caps her name. (: )
“This’ the Big Island, Boston." (Missing.. isn't? I don't know. Was really awkward.)
But other than those things, this was a really charming oneshot that I loved reading. (: Serious kudos to xoxluurve for adding this to our c2. (:

Oh, gosh. The summary definitely caught me. I sort every multi-coloured sweets by colour. And if there are letters, yes, those have to face up, too. (I'm immensely OCD, if you haven't figured that out.) This sounds like one of my best friends and I. She eats the reds and purples, and I get the rest. Hahah. We're both happy.
Anyways, back to your story ... This was immensely cute. I love the cyclical technique used. The sort of familiarity as the story ended. And how they didn't get together. They're still friends more than anything. I'm all for the friendship at the base of all relationships thing. :) Anyways, loved this story. Their interaction was delightful.
I love Skittles. They're my favourite! And I love how they're closer together because of them.

i loved her calm OCDness. Reminds me of me.
| Qzie 1/12/09 . chapter 1
What about the green ones? Those are kinda weird, too.
"The S’ have to be facing up, too. I even have a sorting blanket for them." That's not OCD at all... o.O
Aww. Poor yellow skittles.
He should've just gotten a cootie shot.
"He was crazy and disgusting" XD
This kid has OCD! Oh my gosh, classic symptoms!
"My toe stubbed into a nearby chair leg. It had hurt. A lot." Oh... owch.
What a curious name. Boston.
"A good friend." Mmhmm. *Eyebrow raise*
Yeah, good friends always flirt with each other.
"I mean, who else only eats yellow skittles? C'mon, not normal." You're the one who sorted them...
Holy crap, she's still sorting!
Of course this had to happen. The beach, the environmentalist, the OCD girl... what a wonderful combination.
"“I’m not being racist. I’m just playing with the rocks,” I had grumbled half-heartedly."
I'm pretty sure you know what I'm gonna say. Starts with an O. Ends with a D. ''
:( Oh, don't fight over rocks.
Oh yay, they're going back to normal!
Aw, that was cute. . I like how they didn't actually "get together" at the end. It was more of the beginning stages... y'know what I mean? You did really well writing in first person. This would make a really sweet movie. You gonna put it online?
...are we going to add this to the ten-ton conversation? :D
| toffeecakesxox 1/12/09 . chapter 1
Very cute; I love the fact that they don't end up together - very refreshing, even if I am guilty of ending my oneshots with happily-ever-afters. :D
You do first-person very well, actually - better than me, at least. :)

That was really good! I especially loved his name. Very creative..and I liked how it ended in a full circle. Also, they didn't end up together, which I appreciated. The reader can decide whether they do end up dating, or just stay friends. Overall, great job!
