I'm generally not a fan of second person, but you made me love it. This is one of my favorite stories that I've found on fictionpress so far. It's very powerful and I love the flow of your words and the hint of a happy ending.

you told the story really really well. i'm not really good at reviews, i normally just keep to myself, but this just demanded one. it kept me guessing till the end, and the last sentence is just purely amazing. akj;oadf! i can't word what i'm feeling! haha.

oh and "lazily watching the drunk drivers in the street below, headlights like shooting stars." awesome simile by the way.

i don't favourite, but i bookmark, and this is definitely getting bookmarked :)

You're right, it is odd. But that's what makes it so neat.

I love how you described the scenery and the situation.

Good Job!

A few notes:

-"Her perfume has probably accumulated in your blood by now, you think distantly."

This sentence is sorta awkward... like "Yoda-talk". Heh, I fall into this sort of thing all the time myself...

-"You'd been having break downs ever since your brain started working properly"

I think "breakdowns" is just one word.

-"she caught you."

Forgot to capitalize. :p

-"You wish you could talk like that, the words so smoothe and interesting sounding."

You added an "e" at the end of "smooth".

-"She stayed out all night, and you aren't sure if you should be afraid that she's be angry"

"she's be angry"? Do you mean "she'[d] be angry"?


Anyways, it's not that often one finds a story in second-person. Personally, I've tried writing things in second person as well, but they haven't really turned out very well... yet. I think part of the excitement in writing in 2nd person is just that it's... unique... exhilarating... different...

Anyways, the story is pretty good, moving. I did, however, feel as though some of the constant tense shifting can lead to some confusion.

Overall, I enjoyed it... good job! :)

what an amazing story. I loved it! I liked how you referred to the main character as "you". that was clever and really made me feel a part of it (even though I think I was asked for a kiss by another girl... lol) will you continue on with this? I got a feeling that you won't.
