Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

Thank you for making this so unlike all the other superficial writings out there. Thank you for giving this meaning. Thank you for summing up what I have felt for as long as I know, so perfectly into what I now understand. Thank you for explaining what it is to live, laugh, and love. And most of all, thank you for writing something that made a difference, on me if none other. Keep writing!

This story is... Oh my gods. It's so full of emotion, and it's so real. I feel like I can actually understand what is happening to her... It's an amazing plot. And the poetry is really beautiful. Overall, it just a really amazing story...
I'm really curious though, you never mention her name. What's her name?

Also forgot to add in, your poems touch my heart. They are beautiful, makes me want to fall with your writing every time you write poetry. Really touches my heart

It's amazing, there is so many characters, but you don't lose sight of the plot or the characterization. Its flawless, and I absolutely fell in love with this story. Sometimes people make their characters fall in love in ways i cant connect too, when I read how she slowly fell in love with mike. It's exactly how I fell in love, and I felt so connected with her. Honestly I love every minute, I loved how real her situation was, how believable it was. The poems being left in the book, her not wanting to know who Kasper was, and how mike made sure she knew it was him all along. A very good read :) I'm happy I found this story, it was dashed so deeply that it took me this long to find it. Glad all that story hunting bore some fruit :) aughh don't get me started on how you ended it, just keep my heart, keep the awesome work!

I read this, and I feel like I kind of am Cordelia. Except for, you know, the ending.
And on and on. The things these people are living, I can't believe it. I read them, reread them, I can't comprehend that the two lines I scribbled the other day began this outpouring. A hum of something incomprehensible begins to ring in my ears, the hum of a thousand human beings leading a thousand different lives.
This is an amazing story, Robin. Seriously, you know those stories that reach out and touch your heart, and you can actually feel what the character is feeling. Like you *are* the character. Those moments of saturated unity, and those inexplicable moments that everyone has and everyone feels, but can never put them down on paper.
That and the fear of hypocrisy are the things I can relate to the most.
It's truly beautiful. What makes it beautiful is that it's realistic. Not many can write this expressively.
Write on, don't stop. PM me sometime.

This was amazing, inspiring, beautiful. I'm wondeing why I haven't stumbled upon this before. Probably one of the best stories I've read here on FP.
| audacityofmymind chapter 11 . 6/10/2012
Oh, I forgot to say this;
I didn't even realize that we didn't know the girl's name. It didn't even bother me.
That is an example to why this story is perfectly written,
But that doesn't mean I don't want to know what her name is. I guess it will remain a mystery.
I can live with that.
| audacityofmymind chapter 12 . 6/10/2012
That is all I can say.
I usually don't review much. But when I read this...I just didn't want it to end.
It was PERFECT. I was looking for a cliched romance story but boy, I'm glad I found this story.
It made me want to cry, to laugh, to be happy. I just read the whole thing in 2 hours, listening the same song over and over again.
You are an amazing writer. You should definitely publish this, because everyone deserves to read this.
I know you probably heard these compliments a lot, but you deserve it.
Your writing made me feel and it made me think. It can be described by one word : Beautiful.
I wish I could write like you, think like you, rhyme like you.
And this story made me...deep. That is why my review resembles a poem right now.
Do not, ever, stop writing. That was full of feeling and probably the best story I've read here. And I've read a lot.
Anyway, THANK YOU for writing this. And good luck.

I hardly ever leave reviews. I ghost fictionpress, read stories, feel something, but hardly do I ever leave reviews. For this, this jewel of a story, I think I owe you a great deal. I mean, I prolly won't say something monumental like "your story saved my life which I was about to throw away from the top of a very high building or from a sad overdose", I'm not that self-destructive I think.
For me, this story was a wake up call. For a while, I'd been really lost. Even though I'd nearly gotten past the first year of my dream course, I worried about a hell lot of things; financial worries, friendship worries, emo worries, usual teenage angst. I don't like people generally. I used to. I didn't worry about having to socialise, talk to people, listen to them, be around even family members. Now I do. And this story expressed my thoughts so perfectly, so in sync with what I'd always thought but could never express.
And in this story, I'm glad that most of the main characters have found their path, or mostly the path to that path. It was a self-actualising sort of feeling for me. I read it in one sitting (gosh, who doesn't nowadays right?) and I felt so so much. I felt everything that I've accumulated, kept inside me, lock away from everyone, sort of tumble out and I started sniffling. Just a little. That's how good your story is, how good you are at making the readers get involved personally in your story. Or at least, that's how it is for me.
I think I understand myself a little better now. I'm still confused by myself. I think I confuse myself the most because I don't know what I'm thinking, what I'm doing, who I am, what I really want. The main career goal is there. Its just. Different. I don't know. But still, if I were floundering in a dreamscape, this story would have been one of my few 'kicks'. I needed this. Few stories, published and unpublished, have made me feel so much, and this is one of those. So thank you. Thank you very much. I hope you keep writing, and in Neil Gaiman's words, make good art. I look forward to reading your next story.
Yours, very truly

I feel like after reading this I should be able to write some poetical review, something really deep and powerful that would show you just how much I loved and appreciated your story, how it made me laugh and feel. Sadly, I can't be poetic to save my life so I'll just say that this story is beautiful. Really, truly.

I started reading this story this morning because I was looking for a sappy romance novel to read, but this turned out to be so much more than Id imagined.
It wasnt predictable or average or boring. It was raw and it was real, and when I finished it two hours later, it made me smile and think hard about my own life and how much I related to the characters in your story.
This gave me hope and truly touched me, even though at the beginning I disliked the protagonist due to her unexplainable dislike of life when it seemed that she had it pretty good.
As the story continued, I felt the way she changed, not to please anyone, but as she opened her eyes to all the possibilities and finally realized that life is beautiful and that she would one day remember those years and should enjoy them.
Im glad she realized that at the beginning, by trying so hard to be unlike everyone else, she wasnt truly being herself and living live the way she could.
Anyway, enough about the story and more about you: this is totally publishable. The way it was written was amazing, and with some editing, it could be made into a novel so that even more people can read and be affected in the same way a lot of people on here were.
I hope I get the chance to read another full length story written by you, because your work is truly inspirational and worthy of every single positive review you've gotten and will get in the future.
That is all :)
