i would just like to congratulate you on this amazing story. me personally i have always been fascinated by war, or rather by what keeps the soldiers going.
i have a friend getting ready to go to bootcamp for the marines, and i am going to write...whether he likes it or not.
and i have read some of the letters my father(a former marine corporal) had written to my grandma, and a letter or two that he had written to my mother when he was over in Somalia.
i just wanted to let you know that you did an amazing job at keeping it historically accurate.
this kind of reminds of the song by the Dixie Chicks :traveling soldier.
you should listen to it sometime

This story is supposed to be super duperly angsty, right? I'm guessing that he dies at war or goes MIA. Rawr. Both sound bad for her. I wonder if he's going to start writing back. I mean, is it possible to fall in love with someone if they don't respond? I know... it is possible (hence unrequited love), but yeah.

i'm into this story :)

How many chapters is this going to be?
Another interesting chapter. James still hasn't broken out of his shell or at least, the letters haven't been able to smooth his rough edges...yet.
I'm curious as to how this is going to end, but I'll have to wait.
Till the next chappie,

Ok, I'm sorry, but a writer as good as you should have at least 30 reviews by now! I am dead serious. Keep on writing!

You have a nice writing style, I suppose that the thought of writing to someone is always nice (since in this time period it's all e-mails and text messages) - a nice change.
I haven't read any of the others yet, but I do hope you'll win, I guess I could vote for you.
The thought of "not-even-friends-yet" isn't new, but I guess it's a good start; since I don't believe in love at first sight.

hey, this is a pretty interesting story...
i can't wait to see what happens between mary and james...

Oh I didn't know that this was going to be a chapter fic! I'm glad I added you to author alert, then. _
I was initially planning on asking you whether there would be a happy or sad ending to this. But I think the answer would spoil the story for me, hehe.
So, she's going to fall for James as he sends replies back, if he ever does of course. Very interesting. And poor kid, he really has been sheltered from all the bad news.
I honestly can't wait till the next chappie!

Not too bad at all!

Woah. To be honest I don't know what to say. Yes this was good, but I'm trying to pinpoint what sets this apart from other one-shots. Yes, you're probably saying 'then why are you bothering with a review'. I review to let people know that I've read their story and to shed some light on how it made me feel. And this piece, well, it sure has a tragic feel to it. But that's great, it's not some sappy tragic feel. It's the type that wrenches your heart open, but at the same time, due to the ending of your story, leaves hope.
Did that make sense? I hope it did, hehe. D
I think I'll subscribe to you. _
