nice story. but just a small thing. at the end of this chapter, you wrote "a picture of him when he was older" uh, don't you mean when he was younger?

I received an e-mail awhile ago about the last chapter and the epilogue being posted, but I lost interest in the story. I finally read both chapters today. Usually in a story, your readers should feel strongly about a certain couple, but somewhere along the line, I lost interest in all your characters. The plot seems very fuzzy. The argument with Adam, I thought it would just be a small thing, since the problem was so small and they appeared to be such good friends. I feel that in your writing, events seem to happen out of nowhere, there's no build up to anything, it just happens. I hated the protagonist. I can't tell you how to change that, but I'm just letting you know. The "intense" ending you were looking for didn't really happen. I felt no emotion other than disappointment while reading the last 2 chapters. Actually, reading this whole sequel was really hard for me because starting with the whole "Through The Words Of Gossip" is her book seemed a bit cheesy. Anyways, I guess that's it. I hope you'll spend some more time reading other stories, and reading your own stories from a different perspective and edit them before posting your new story.

Yes that is an ending, a verry good one.
| Skumouse chapter 32 . 9/2/2004
Woah! This was such an amazing story! I'm glad she ended up with Chad, she did always love him so they deserved to finally end up together. I loved how Scott was! He was very confusing and formal! I loved this story so much, I'm sad it's over!

So it was Chad. Interesting style of ending this, though switching back and forth from "four years ago" to "four years later" was a little weird in my opinion. After all they had been through, after all those years..I believe it was just about time for them to get together. To have her end up in another man's arms because she had accidentally got herself pregnant might have seemed absurd because the feelings you had mounted had really convinced me that they were somehow meant to be together.
So Chad made a good father? That's a nice fact to digest. Given the examples you laid out, I must say that the second fiction was indeed deeper and more intense. And that I liked. Indeed her past did mould Sarah into what she ended up to be, and it's funny how Chad remained nearby all this time.
Scott's dialogue amused me the very time I read it. Kinda odd but oh well, I guess I tend to stutter and fumble in front of unfamiliar audiences too.
Overall, as I've always said, this fiction did not fall short of my expectations. Refuse to believe this if you choose to, but I personally feel that your writing skills have improved, particularly towards the end of TEOT. You've adopted a more mature style and whole approach, that impresses me so.
As for the new fiction..interesting how you introduced it. "Please read it! I hear it is very good." Well..we'll see? Teehee. I bet it'll be another classic. Rest assured, you've done well. With both TEOT and TTWOG.
p/s: Oh do drop by my page and read my works? It's been a while since I received your..erm..patronage?

yay I'm proud of you. Without a doubt, this is a great chapter/epilogue. Well written and great with the subtle hints :) I'm glad you finally got around to the god side. yay For happy endings. Sarah without a doubt matured and you captured that very well. Nicely done! It's sad to see this fic end :(

I've been on a FP hiatus, AS YOU KNOW. To tell you the truth, I've only been able to skim through the stories that I had been reading before, but I'll go back and read yours in detail. After school starts.
I miss our chats! These days, I don't feel we're talking as much. I'll tell you about my new story idea when you get back on tomorrow or something.
What? She's pregnant? Dude. Soap Opera! Are you going to make this a trilogy? Or, are you going to tell anyone (namely, ME) who the father is? I bet it's Chad. I bet you anything.
Haha. I just realized. Chad. Scott. Sarah. Adam. I have cousins named Chad, Scott, and Sara. Without the "h." My best friend's boyfriend is Adam. Weeird.
Was Jordan after your roommate at UCLA? Or was that before you met him?
Tell me! Or else, DIE.
Haha. Okay, bye.

*sigh* i didn't see it at the start of the story ... but as i read into it more and more, especially these last few chapters, i found that Sarah is quite manipulative...
even though the story is told mostly from her point of view (which makes people tend to believe in what she say is true), it sort of shows now how she truely is... she makes herself look like the victim and tries to put the blame on everyone else.. *sigh* kinda disappointed in her.
but hey, your writing skills are awesome~! can't wait for more chapters~!

Honestly, I didn't expect the ending to come so soon as you were apparently thinking twice about how you ended. I particularly enjoyed the ending, I didn't expect it to be this shocking..and abrupt, but all along I wanted Sarah to learn her lesson. For the 60 chapters (TTWOG and TEOT) you led us through a fairytale where things seemed to have a convenient way out, a simple solution and that life was a straight-ish road. Yes, there were ups, there were downs, yet nothing really pinned her down. She felt she could prance around doing as her heart told her to, so somehow or rather, I wanted a rude awakening. I can pretty much understand your reasoning for resolving this the way you did, but there was always this part of me that longed for a perfect, happy ending. But re-evaluating the situation, you've braced this with quite a bit of reality and finishing off on cloud nine would not have seemed fitting to an extent. (I hope I'm making sense.) Sarah, in my opinion didn't really grow, but the ending did hint that she might turn over a new leaf. Choosing her guy, I suppose the impregnated child would be the deciding factor, if the guy would believe and accept her for all that she is. But the humanity in not having a desire for abortion was clear. The new light, atmosphere you brought through the photo shoot was nice. Honestly I can't quite remember the resolution of the prequel, but it did meet the mark, it was a solid fiction. Recollecting what I can, I wouldn't say that the characters changed, but Sarah did in this final chapter. And an epilogue would greatly help in clearing foggy doubt. Your updates were the quickest among many, thanks for that! Enjoyed this fiction although at certain parts, I was lost to some extent. The Cali break was crummy though. On a lighter note, I'm wondering if I still measure up to near that favourite reviewer title as before. *winks* Can't wait for a new adventure. A brand spanking new story! Until then, do be reassured that you've done a great job at giving me a great dose of good fiction! -Sher-

that's the weirdest ending...
| Estelle Stafford chapter 31 . 8/28/2004
I like the story, but I don't think that is ending, it doesn't feel final so please write more to it.
| Skumouse chapter 31 . 8/28/2004
