Wow! Ok, so I'm not entirely convinced by the whole this-is-someone's journal bit, because parts of it were just too... Written, you know? Didn't read like an actual person's actual journal.
But whether or not it's what you say it is, it was touching and poignant and it had me spellbound. And if it actually IS true, then I wish you and Rea all the best.

I'm convinced you wrote this. I can't help it, as I read it I just kept thinking what a brilliant idea it would be opening with a chapter like that, with the disclaimer and everything. Because that was all it took for me to get hooked, that first chapter. It got me wondering who the girl was and why she decided to leave the site; intrigued me enough to read on and I feel like that was the intention. It's not like it matters either way. Regardless of who wrote it, it's amazing. It sort of scares me, just how much I can relate to it. Not all the business with her family (although I've had my fair share of problems there, nothing like Rea's specifically, however) but with her obsession with fp. I wouldn't say I've been that into fp at anytime but I can certainly relate to the degree she was obsessed with it, but in regards to other things, things that are, perhaps, unhealthy to get so obsessed with like TV shows or just being on the internet in general for a time that's longer than most people accept as normal. I see myself in Rea there, because I feel like she was doing just what I've done, and that is trying to distract herself from her empty life with things like a simple website. And in the end everything seemed to come apart when not only the truth came out in REAL life, but once she tired of fp. That's the problem with distractions, they only last for so long. Real life always creeps up on you. If Rea is in fact real, I find it sad that she never seemed to see her own talent, but that often seems to be the case with creative types. She seemed like such an amazing person, from what I read. I really felt for her for all her loneliness and confusion. I just wanted to see her find happiness and finally fit in somewhere. The end though is perfect though, because it's realistic. Shit hits the fan, things get a little better and the story ends. That's real life. It's sad and unfortunate, as the chapter title reads, but it's the real deal.

I wish the girl who wrote this every happiness in the world, and you too, for sharing her story.
| panic-everywhere chapter 24 . 7/26/2010
just wow. Honestly this piece made me cry. The stuff Rea had gone through and what she was living with was so real. She had so many dynamics her humor, her wit, her pain it all was so touching.
I feel badly, but I don't know how much i bought into the Colby character. From what she wrote she was so alone, but she wasn't. I just wish she would've known it.

This was beautiful writing. Rea seemed pretty strong for a girl who dealt with a lot.

i don't really know what to say, so i'll borrow a line of one of my favourite books:
"..., it's so beautiful it takes your breath, your breath, it's so beautiful it can take your heart"
it inspired me, so thanks

This is incredible. I would have liked to have the chance to meet Rea. She sounds like someone who's been broken, put back together, and is stronger for it. I regret truly all that she has been through.
| B.Goddess chapter 24 . 11/13/2009
So, wait, you didn't write it?
This piece was brilliant. Breath taking, really. Rea was just so... real. So freaking real.
So the question is... Was she real or not?
| whacked chapter 23 . 7/28/2009
hahaha actually i do have one question, after i posted my review of this brilliant piece of work i checked out your profile and you keep calling this your baby so it led me to believe that you did actually write it yourself. if you did, it most certainly is really clever! and i hope i can see more of your work!
| whacked chapter 24 . 7/26/2009
It was truly one of the more brilliant pieces on this website, and one i found myself relating to over and over was such a touching piece of work, i never thought reading's some stranger's journal (whether made up or not) could ever move me in so many ways. I too was initially devouring fp (but not to her extent) and then eventually started to lose the excitement much like her, only to coming back to find gems like this.
I also have to congratulate you on editing this, there were, for me, no boring part in this whole thing. it was simple yet so complex it gave me chills. and i hope where ever she may be that she is doing well.
