Although the beginning is nice and up lifting it lacks a spark. Something that makes it truly worth while to read. Over all it is a good story but needs more content, descriptions, and overall imagery to actually make it memorable. I suggest that you flesh out the characters more to make them seem like people and not like cardboard cutouts. Also the ending was quick and unfulfilling leaving a bitter after taste for their is really no resolution. But for a peice of literature that at best is flighty and unfocused it is very moderate. Expecialy considering that the amount of overall context is nonexsitant and the antagonist is very one dimensional. Personally I would recommend that the writer fluff out everything a couple of times just to make the story fell more than just a half finished dream.

I'm so happy, and I'm so sad, and I still hate you, and still respect your awesomeness, and, and...
This almost made my cry. So thanks for that. I do enjoy a good tear-jerker once in awhile.
Now I think I'll be off to see if you have any other stories to stalk... *devilish grin*
*pchoooooooo's to your profile*

...I hate you. But I love you at the same time. Don't try to understand. *looks away dramatically with the faint prickling of tears in the corners of my eyes*
Ahem. Anywho, I suppose I'll have to read the next chapter, because you told me to.
By the way, you still have all of my respect. All of it.
I just hate you. :)
*half-hearted pchoooooooo to next chap*

I clicked the pretty button.
Damn, I'm just doing everything you tell me to, huh?
So, it seems Cat has finally found a skirt, eh?
And, oh dear, I hope she's alright, what with that vampire incident o3o
But I shall not fear! Because Mara will surely come to her rescue!
GOTTA GO TO CHAPTER 6

I am not one of those tough people who hate reading romance, so I obviously greatly enjoyed this chapter. /)*3*(\
The adorableness was overwhelming, I was literally sitting here just giggling at all the cute little moments.
So, yes, that is my 'little note' for you, mysterious author who holds all of my respect. All of it.
Off to chapter 5

"It's just a scratch."
Was this a well-placed Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference? If it was, I give you all of my respect. All of it.
If not, it was still amusing, so thank you for that .
Off to chapter 4

I am here. Writing this review. To tell you that I indeed have read chapter one.
I like the playful relationship between the two, early as it may be in the story.
And now off to chapter two for moi

Wow!...that was great. The ending was so sad though. It made me want to cry. The hardest part about losing a loved one is going home and seeing all of the things that remind you of them and then knowing that they will never be coming back. It is a painful experience and I think you did a wonderous job in describing the feelings one expeiences in a situation like that. Still wish that there was a happy ending though. Sad endings always make me...well, sad. Anyway, wonderful job with this. I was very pleased (not to sound jerky or anything)
