| Sherlsepeare chapter 14 . 7/22
First of all, I hope this review finds you ... alive and well. One can never be sure. Sorry
Second, what an absolutely wonderful story this turned out to be. Believe me, I was so disappointed when the first story ended because I could not believe how you did what you did to such a beautiful piece. I'm glad I read the author's note proclaiming a sequel - probably why I read that in the first so I could get some closure and I came here to find something that was ... completely different, yet similarly beautiful and captivating. The first story had very little angst barring the last couple of chapters. It was a fun read. This however, was much more heart wrenching and I am so glad for how the final two chapters went because FINALLY things are falling into place and the drama is sort of ending. Well, I wouldn't know would I?
Which brings me to my third point. How. On Earth. Could you leave this story unfinished. I wouldn't mind much if I myself understood what that "biggest crack" was but damn I am clueless and I NEED THIS STORY TO END! That's the whole point of the review you know. Normally I'd give up on a story not updated in 3 years, but this is special. And if you put 15 chapters in 9 years ... there's hope. I can't give you the follow or the favourite both you and this story deserve as I do not yet have an account. But I sincerely hope that you will finish this story. Considering that you are ... alive and well. Heh.

I have really loved this story and it's predecessor. I noticed its been almost a year since an update. Have you gotten over your burnout yet? Or have you gotten lost in tv. I gotta say that I agree with you whole heartedly on the 100 and S.H.I.E.L.D. I usually wait until they come out on Netflix. No cable or dish here. Anyway, I just want to encourage you to pick up the story again. I love it! Oh! By the way, I really love that you don't use so much profanity in your stories. It makes them so much more enjoyable to read because the vocabulary you do use is way more entertaining. I once read a quote on one of those quote a day calendars that said something to the effect of someone who uses profanity lacks imagination. So good on you!

Dude! This story is so good! Please carry on; I can't wait for the next chapter. I also think you nailed Nadine's conversation with the Witch; very good character development while still keeping her like the Nadine in the 1st story. Keep up the good work and update soon! AAAAAAAAAAh! xxx

I pretty much love your stories so far! Please continue.
Its so mean letting us hanging, waiting for an end!:)

I've been reading your story from like the very beginning. Even tho I don't have an account and I don't really review because I don't have anything to say but I Love love Iove your writing and I was literally crushed after qoaqr like CRUSHED. My mom had to physically drag me out of my slump. Which is why I normally avoid sad ending stories but nadines so bubbly I couldn't picture it. Like at all. I left to go eat. Umm where was I. Oh yeah so I'm glad you wrote this you beautiful girl. I just read this thing called sleeping with the enemy and I'm all distraught cus I didn't like the ending like idek what happened have you read it. I'm a blubbering mess of emotion. Not because of the story but just because I'm a mess of a person who feels too much. And I kind of really want an account now because I want to talk to you. But I'm technologically challenged ( does that make sense? It sounds wierd in my head) and also cuz you probably don't wanna talk. So anyway yeah that's about it. Please update soon. I love your work. Toodles.
P.s can you recommend a cute sappy cliche story? It's not rude to ask a writer that right? Like. Going into a dunkin donuts and asking to expand your donut horizons? :/ I'm sorry in advance.
P.p.s I'm sorry if this is a bad review and irrelevant. I don't normally review anything. Man of few words and all that. Except I'm a girl. Anyway yeah okie bye

Please this amazing story needs a closure...

Are you going to update anytime soon?
| Swymuh chapter 14 . 3/18/2016
I need more of them. I haven't read it yet and I'm seriously not going to read this without an end yet. That'd be some sort of masochism. Keep updating, though. I love your writing.:)

Oh, now I don't freaking understand. Why did Skylar had to be gay? Not like I'm against it or a homophobe but I thought he would be atleast a "tool", after all he took care of her for a year. Sigh. It was just like he was just forced to be out of the picture after all he had done. And the only problem in this story is their miscommunication towards each other, and the family problems if it really is that big deal now ( since it was disregarded in the beginning).

Shit, pure utter shit. I think in Nadine's perspective, here is what it looks like: Thatcher has a son with Nicola, he should be happy for him. Though she can't totally forgive him, what she should be thinking is that he has a family not that he wants her back again! That is too, dare I say it, illogical to think at the moment since she doesn't know about what is happening between Thatcher and Nicola. And when he's back all she could think is that "it's over"? I think that is not how a proper mind works, it should be that she thinks that Thatcher is back with Nicola and their son and being a good father he is, he will fix it, not about him wanting her again.
Forgive me for ranting, but I thought what would happen would be that they will slowly explain things and slowly weaken their walls (if that's what you're intending to do). I love QoaQR (one of my favourite stories) and I thought that this story is about getting mature. I hope I won't be this dissapointed though, I will still keep reading! And please don't be selfish with Skylar, if they will not be together, it's unfair for him to be so caring and doesn't given justice(happiness) :D I am shipping Nadine x Skylar atm. 3

Holy hell, I've been binge reading all your stories. Im so hooked. Your characters, ALL of your characters, are so so...real. I wish I could write characters the way you do, holy moley. Because I've been binge reading literally everything you've posted, I havent reviewed anything yet, sorry! I just get so sucked up in a story, then I want more and more and yea. My undetected canoodling is my fav of all of your stories, I think. (I think I actually might have written a lil review, cant remember, Ive been reading your stuff for like, two days.) I think standing on the edge is my second fav? I mean, it isnt finished yet *loud sigh* (sorry, so far ive been able to read and complete all your stories, aside from this one and sote, I guess I got a lil spoiled bc of that, I hate waiting D: ) but every one of your characters in that makes my heart hurt in some weird way. I want to hug them all and make them hot cocoa. And ive noticed a semi theme in your stories, boys that are sorta broken. not gonna lie, I love it. you see allll these stories featuring broken girls that find prince charming and are fixed, but thats not always realistic.(even if its kinda nice) Javi makes my heart hurt the most. Poor baby *whine* and yea. GOD I LOVE EVERYTHING YOU WRITE. when I first read the description for wyotu I wasnt sure if I'd like it, im not always into the 'spoiled rich kid thats deeper than he seems' and yet, reading it, I just loved it. you have a way of writing things that are almost cliches (loving your bff, like in muc, spoiled rich boy, 'dark, mysterious boys') and just...taking them in another direction. you have a way of surprising me with things that I hadnt thought would be surprising. and I LOVE it. never stop. and of course, qoaqr. I started reading it once a while back, but didnt get into it right away. (i believe it was when nadine was getting dressed up for skye's party, and her first date with thatcher. sometimes, dress up scene irk me. but only when its clothing that I hate, LMAO. I am not a fan of even slightly baggy pants, honestly. at least, not baggy like, around the thighs and up, you know? jesus christ im rambling about PANTS.) anyways, where was i? oh yea, I didnt get into it right away. But then I read muc and was hooked, and read wyotu, and sote, and by that time, I was sure id love anything you write. (im still pretty sure thats true, tbh.) (random thought, I was totally gonna like, be all grammatically correct, and not use slang or text talk, but its late and Im too lazy to fix anything, sorry omg)
Oh and a lesson in love is making my heart all fluttery and there are butterflies in my tummy, and you know a story is good when it gives you tummy butterflies, just saying.
I dont know what im going on about anymore, so Ill end with this.
NEVER STOP WRITING. EVER EVER. BECAUSE EVERYTHING YOUVE WRITTEN, HAS NOT DISAPPOINTED ME, AT ALL.
I would probably enjoy reading your freaking dream journal, tbh. That sounds weird, kinda stalkerish. I promise im not like, obsessed with you or anything. I just reaLLY LIKE what you write. Okay I should stop now omg okay.

Ah! I lovr Thatcher and Nadine and how much they love each other and how adorable they are and thank you so much for sticking with this story. I remember thinking that you would never update but then you did and it's so amazing! Sorry for the run-on sentence; I am just really excited!

I just finished reading over your story again and I've come to realise that the first time I read it I wasn't really reading it, does that make sense. As I was reading it AGAIN I was brought to tears by some of the scenes and my god I love Nadine and I love Thatcher. I love how both Nadine and Thatcher can love so effortlessly even though in Thatchers case it some times doesn't seem that way I think it's hidden by his trust issues and the fact that he doesn't love himself which is one of the things that got me teary eyed he's the kind of person who deserves to be loved. I love how Nadine never allows the world to take away her being/essence it motivates me to espire to be like her but be myself at the same time this is just one of the reasons I love this story so much, I hope that you update soon and not go on a long hiatus you're a very talented writer. Looking forward to your next update.

Please update! Don't be one of those authors that finish the first story and never finish the sequels. I really liked the first one but I cried at the end because I thought the story was finished. But then I found out that you have the sequel so I'm slowly recovering.
