|Reviews for Not for Me|
| Elle Winters 9 chapter 30 . 11/12
Brave for writing this ending. I forgot that this was to happen. I guess it's hard to read because many times we read to escape or own reality a little. This is too real and realistic. It hurts. I didn't enjoy it, but it's not an insult to you, it's more that I'd rather not be reminded of reality when it's already ever present.

Let me just say WOW! This story was absolutely amazing, it had me actually excited to catch my bus just so I could read it. I quite enjoyed your writing style. This story made me laugh, cry and everything in between. Your story is one of the best I've seen on here in a while!

I've only recently found this story on FP even though it was published/uploaded back in 2004.
From the very start I loved this story, and as I read on I grew to appreciate it and really marvel at your writing ability.
I'm glad that I read this when it was completely finished so that I didn't have to stop reading or wait for an update. And I think because I read it all at once, it really hit me that in 30 chapters (well 29 minus the conclusion) you managed to develop your characters so well. They were so tangible and in terms of growth you could see Lexia's self-confidence grow and watched her step out of her pit of isolation. Dave was relentless in his pursuit of Lexia but at the same time he grew as well. He matured and he stopped being as arrogant but I think his character really started to understand other people more and really vary the types of people he hung out with.
I'm not going to lie, but Andrew's passing made me cry in reality and I got weird looks from my sister...
Although his death was a bit sudden (and I felt a bit poorly executed, but I'm biased), it really hit home with me. I knew how important Andrew was to Lexia and I feel like his death was a huge turning point for both reader and Lexia. Yes he was ill, and this might be me reading too much into this, but at the same time we all knew Lexia wouldn't really grow as much as she did without Andrew because (like when she went ice-skating) she depended on him too much, and even unconsciously would reach for him. I'm not saying that Andrew deserved to die or that Lexia didn't need his support, it just felt like another shove to a more self-assured Lexia.
And before I leave this really long review (I'm really sorry for it, I had thoughts that I just really wanted to share), I did want Dave and Lexia to end up together. I loved their dynamic. Although the ending in the conclusion was hopeful and positive, I just wanted something more solid to hold on to.
I guess this whole review was a really round-about way of saying I loved the story and your writing style. I thought the way that you presented the story as an assignment was ingenious, although the lesson that Lexia ultimately learned wasn't clear.
Thanks for writing this, I'm pretty sure I'll think about this story again in the future or on a daily basis haha

I loved this story! Really did. But I had somewhat mixed feelings about the ending. I mean, I completely understand Lexia not wanting to be with Dave because she doesn't return his feelings and tjat she wants to be self-reliant first. I actually love that! Stories never address that. I also loved that Dave was attracted to Lexia's character and not her looks. Too long I've read stories abiut main characters who're supposedly wallflowers with lots of angst but the all the stories are based on a superficial looks and finding love. YOUR STORY actually concentrated on Lexia's character development. And I LOVED THAT!
But I still felt bad abour Dave, you know. But I can't help that. I can juat hope that these two fictional characters do actually find love in each other.

Holy crap that actually made me cry.

Aww this is so sad. It was a really great story too and extremely well written. However there were a couple of unresolved points. For example...why was Kayla always so mean? We never did find out what happened to her. Also I was just wondering - this story focuses on Dave and Lexia for almost the entirety and then at the end it switches to something completely different. This is a little odd. :/ Maybe do write a sequel but great job here. I definitely didn't guess the ending! you are a great writer!

When i reached chapter 14 I realized something. This is the second time I read this story. And its the seconds time i fall in loce with it and got my heart broken. I cried like a baby, i must confess. Certainly, the way you develope Lexia... she's the real deal. I gt her. Andrew... god. I fell for him, hard. And well, i just had to say it. Good story. I don't remember if i ever wrote a review on this ... anyway. I love it. I would sof buy a copy of this if it was printed.
