Well written and 13-years later it still holds together.

This story is powerful, I love it.

wow. i found ur ending really impressive. for it's length, it's an amazing story. but, it's kinda detached, which lessens the intensity of the emotions of the story. sometimes, stories in third person can still be pretty personal and close to the heart. but u've used third person in such a way that it's rather detached. i feel that it could be more intense, cos the themes are pretty serious.

oh god! I loved your story... I just read it today and I think this is one of the best stories i've read here in a long time!
It's kind of the cliched couple but oh so much more deep than that...
Thank you for puting this up!

Gosh, this scene is so dramatic... I like the bit about the shattered telephone, for it demonstrates Noelle's rage perfectly.

not sure i like this story.
there wasnt enough explaination on how they did things together, or why he liked her, or her problems or anything.
all we knew is she was a depressed heavy smoker who was grieveing over her dead mother. and he was a hockey player that met her on a plane and was fasinsinated by her.

Just finished reading the whole thing.
I kinda had to force myself through the first part of the story, but by the end I was glad I did. It turned out to be a great story about what's there to be found for those with the will to dig deep enough.
A few quibbles with the opening chapters: Shifting perspectives between Noelle and Liam was sorta disorienting. It might have been better just to pick one character's perspective and use their impression of what the other is doing to convey that other character's thoughts.
Also - and maybe this is just as a guy reader - I had trouble feeling too much sympathy for Noelle in those early chapters. All I could think as she kept mistreating Liam was "Wow, what a,"...*ahem*..."female dog." She became more sympathetic later on, but maybe showing early in the story those hints of vulnerability that you don't see till Chapter 6 would make it easier to care about her earlier.
As for Liam, he is a pretty flat character. Admittedly he's not the focus of the story, but did he have to be so gosh darned perfect? Way to make the rest of us guys feel inadequate. :P
But again, overall I really enjoyed the story. I especially liked the "Why stop now?" "Because you've finally reached your breaking point" part. Very well done.

YOU! You're back. Lalalala you're back.
Okay, I'm ruining the mood of the story.
I like it, it fits with the story. I like that she says her mother doesn't define her. There's enough hope at the end without giving all away and making it a perfect fairytale ending. I love this.
PLEASE TELL ME YOU'VE GOT SOME MORE TO FEED ME. I mean, in general, since Phenomena is over. As you know, I love your writing. I've probably said that so many times already, but it's true.
It's me, your constant reviewer, I'm just not signed in. Not an imposter. Although why anyone would want to pose as me, I don't know. I'll let you mull over that one (or not).

this is beautifully simple and extremely easy to connect to which is so important with stories like noelle's. you might be tempted to fatten up the chapters with more events, but i like the way it feels bare. its like a series of portraits and that is amazing and unique.
| Her Wishing Well chapter 12 . 7/19/2007
