Like! Normally, everybody knows Monopoly and Fb.. I don't understand why Evie is so concerned about Tully's friendrequest.. it's normal, when he knows her THAT LONG, to want her friendship at all.. not only at fb.. because that's saying nothing at all! ;-)

Like! And I know- of course -who Alfred Hitchcock was! He is the best! And all the other names are common, 'cause in Germany you learn all about them in school! ;-)

Sooo, I just read this whole story in one sitting. And since I get bored of stories easily, that means I must reaalllllyyyy like this story. :) The characterization throughout was fantastic. I loved to hate Dorianne - she was such a hussie. Haha. Amazing job on this. :)

So I just finished your story and i loved it. As to your questions... I think I have 2 favorite characters... Mischa and Elena actually... Probably because I cab picture both of them with accents since you wrote them that way. :) I do think you could've developed Dorianne more... Mainly cause there has to be a better reason than the fact that she's French for the way she was acting like a totla bitch. My favorite scene was when Evie went and knocked on her raunchy neighbors door... Mainly cause I could picture my friends doing that too.. And well imagining a guy tied to a bed is pretty funny. Lol. As to parts i feel you neglected... I have to say poor Elena. I know atchitecture majors spend 24/7 in their studios, but the poor girl has no love interest either! I wonder if she likes feeling like the 5th wheel with the group... Maybe the next installment will have some love for her and Mischa? :) and as to your writing I enjoy it immensely... It portrays the quirkiness of your characters as well as the emotions and depth and intelligence they all have. It was wonderfully written in my opinion. :)
And I'll be on the look out for some of your other stories. :)

I haven't reviewed any chapters before this one, but that was because I was to busy wondering what came next. I love the story and all the characters in it because they are all actual characters. They're not just an elusive friend who's only in the story to fill a position.
Anyway, to answer your question:
My favorite character was Evie, just because. I think you could have developed Elana a bit more but that's just my opinion. I might just feel like that because she got a bit overshadowed by the Elizabeth/Amory love-hate relationship (that I love by the way. Fantastic). My favorite part of the story was...actually that's hard to decide. I have a lot of favorites. I did love the part with Tully carrying her back to her room and doing a human-tomato-imitation when she told him the keys were in her pants. Plus I loved pretty much every scene with Evie, Tully and Mischa in Bio. As for the neglecting...I don't think you did really. Your story was great! It had me laughing and rolling my eyes at the realistic but bizarre situations Evie and Tully found themselves in. The kiss on the ice rink? Iyiyi. You didn't bring up Lars van Acker, AKA the serial handshaker, again though. I totally wanted him somewhere near the end for something embarrassing! Your writing was actually very good though; it was easy to follow and other than a few rare typos it was completely correct. Plus you didn't make them swear every ten seconds!
All in all I loved the story (even the mother-of-all-fill-in-chapters didn't seem like a fill in chapter) and I think it was brilliant. Go you!
And dang, I only just realized this is a HUGE review...loved it. ;)

The story definitely cracked me up, especially since I went to Cornell myself. Hearing about Appel and hockey just makes me miss the hill and everything about it. Great job on your story overall! :)

I love Tully. Teehee.
| reindrops chapter 6 . 10/26/2011
I love Beauty and the Beast, too. It's my all-time favorite Disney animated film.

I just loved this story! In fact, I read over the latter half several times which is why I'm not commenting on the last chapter! I've been meaning to read this from ages (I had this in my Bookmarks list from like six months) because I adored Six Weeks With Satan and I just got to it now because of stupid exams :(
Okay. How to say this?
ILOVE TULLY 33 He was sooooooo cute :))
Evie was a great protagonist, and so easily identifiable with! I loved her awkwardness and what she did in the end (That was a totally, totally awwwwwwwwwww moment *sigh*)
I loved all your political discussions - I learnt a hell of a lot haha! And I cracke dup so hard at the DNA helicase joke (I'm a Bio student!) It was seriously epic!
Even though Mischa was the sweetest guy ever, I was against him dating Evi from the beginning, I admit because Tully was the right one for Evie! I loved also how you didn't make the story too too intense and cry-ey and kept it humorous all throughout :))
I was also pretty interested in the ADHD thing and I thought it was mor eimportant in the plot but I guess it wasn't *shrugs*
anyway, thanks for a lovely, amazing story and making my day :D 3

Hola! This is Annie, a judge on ADoR (aka A Drop of Romeo) and guess what: this is the first story I've accepted to the Girl & Best Friend category on the website! Congratulations! I can feel your excitement through the interweb. Anyway, here's my review for your story.
Annie Thinks: This story had a little bit of everything: humor, romance, and the woes of friendship. It also deals with real-life problems, such as bullying, ex-boyfriends that just can't get over you, and annoying, way too enthusiastic frat boys. The dialogue was realistic and the descriptions... well, descriptive in a way that makes you envision everything and everyone. All the characters are extremely lovable, not to mention hilarious, and that includes Tully McFadden, the estranged best friend who has never quite forgotten about Evie. As for Evie herself, whenever she opens her fictional mouth, I feel smart just by reading it. It's obvious the writer knows what she's talking about and it makes the story seem that much more real. I especially loved Amory, the aforementioned ex whose favorite hobby is arguing with anyone and everyone. Jampacked with sexual innuendoes, subtle humor, and the small steps it takes to fall in love, this is one of those stories you'll read over and over again (like me).
