So...your story has kept me up till 7:30AM in the morning halfway through my exam period.
Well done. Very well done. I thoroughly enjoyed it. You had an amazing depth of characters, interesting plot twists, and just incredible expression.
But what really took the cake for me was the fact that it was in SYDNEY! All the references to the BOS and USYD and random little geographical locations made me chuckle throughout the whole story.
But just one little inconsistency (being a HSC 09, myself) ... we did Belonging for our Area of Study. ;) Not journeys... so you should be writing stuff like ... "belonging is an integral feature of the human experience ... rah rah rah ... where one's sense of acceptance may be determined by forces of place, relationships and ... something or rather..."
So yeah. :) But otherwise, a highly enjoyable story. The romance was spectacular...and I guess ... could I ask you to write a small sequel? :)
| my own happy ending chapter 9 . 10/18/2010
Let me start off by saying that I am only on Chapter 9, and am already totally enamored with Waiting on the World!
The prologue was quite catchy, considering I'm sure almost any hormonally driven girl (that isn't in a relationship) and has just graduated high school will know EXACTLY how this feels! It caught me by surprise, because that is how I felt when I was graduating high school a year early. (Then three months later, I met my fiancé, so eh.)
After the second chapter, I was worrying that Dillon would be a complete arse throughout the entire story, considering he made the heroine use the train to get to school, instead of just giving in. How unthinkable! ;) It gave him character!
Anyway, I'm currently on Chapter 9 (duh, right?) and just want to say that your story is quite catching, and has me addicted! I'm predicting that there is some underlying cause as to why Dillon doesn't sleep much...although I have no idea what my prediction is as of yet!

I loved the way Tyler's and Noel's relationship progressed. It didn't feel forced.
And even though they both have their flaws, I loved them.
Also I liked that you had your epilog set in a near future and hinted that they had problems, but at the end of the day they were still together.

you're breaking my heart.

I'm grinning at the screen right now. :D

I think Noah is a bit on the dumb side. I understand that he likes Kendall, but i would be the first to be suspicious and confront her.
And the whole mother thing? I dislike it when parent play favorites.

I can't believe Kendall did that. i thought she wouldn't be running off to Emily anymore. Grr

I just loved this chapter.
| jessie chapter 26 . 9/12/2010
I got so excited when I realised this story was set in Australia, and then practically giddy when I realised it was Sydney coz I'm from Sydney too :D
It was really awesome, I like how Noel and Tyler didn't just fall in love really fast, made it more realistic etc.

i loved reading this :D
well done on such a fantastic story :D
| Ravina chapter 26 . 9/6/2010
This is such an amazing story! *cue gushing*
Seriously, I enjoy your writing style and the fact that you don't rush parts! At times I felt frustrated that there was little action between Noel and Tyler...but those parts were realistic and so I was glad that you wrote them that way. Oh, and I'm the Queen of Rushed Endings, so your ending makes me want to hide my head in shame because it seemed so well-planned.
Anyway, *insert more gushing*, and I wanted to point out that you should change the story status to 'Complete' because it will bring more readers to this (amazing) piece of writing.

I love this story I thought it was totally awesome how they didn't just pretend to date then fall in love and everything's just peachy but they actually had bumps in the road and I loved it SO MUCH
| sarcasm is my middle name chapter 26 . 9/1/2010
I love it so much! Not only because it's one of the best stories i've ever read... but because since i live in Sydney, i can relate :) As i moved here from India when i was like six, I FRICKING LOVE THIS COUNTRY! but yeah, i don't agree that Bankstown is dangerous. Try Cabrammatta! Bt yeah, that was a kick-ass story.
