Ha, I totally was like 'hey update this story' and I didn't realize you already HAD (we'll pretend I was talking about chapter three!) Fictionpress has been very slow in delivering e-mails, haven't they? Anyway, this chapter was even better than the first because it really shows some of your characters more quirky traits...I found it funny that both Elizabeth and Evie (did I mention I totally love that name?) were singing to themselves and got overheard by Amory. I can definitely sense some Amory/Elizabeth tension about to happen...hahaha...hopefully he isn't still in love with Evie. It doesn't seem like he is, but you never really know.
Also, Tully has endeared himself to me entirely too much in this chapter. I don't know why, but everything he did in that chapter was positively adorable. I actually really liked Lars and I hope he becomes a part of their circle of friends because he's so amusing. There's something to say about a guy who isn't afraid to come off as a total cheeseball to a pretty girl. It was pretty obvious he wasn't being skeevy like Tully thought, but rather amusing. I mean, those lines don't work on ANYONE, they're basically just jokes. (Bond, James Bond was the best.) I liked the hint of awkwardness at the end of the chapter because I find myself in that position all the time. You're having a fun, easy chat with someone and then when you go your separate ways, there's just something AWKWARD in the air, even if it wasn't there before. And his catching her staring at him was so cute!
Cornell sounds like an awesome school and all, but it always makes me kind of chuckle because on my favorite show, The Office, there's a character who always makes a big deal about how he went there. Anyway, I mean no disrespect to your school! Also, since you said you follow Germany in soccer/football, were you disappointed by Spain's victory the other day? My sister is in Spain right now so she was there for all of the partying that ensued when they won...

Awesome chapter, as usual. Tully's and Evie's relationship is really believable at the moment. The tension between them or whatever. Lars is ridiculously funny-especially his pick-up lines. Sometimes, I really wonder just why guys use them lol

I think that they both had a crush on each other, they were just to stupid to realize it. I know it's only the second chapter, but that's what I think.
That dude with the horrible pick up lines is a bit creepy.

So first of all: I forgot to put you on author alert, so when I realized you already had this story out, I was THIS close to doing a jig, I was so excited.
Second: For my next story I was actually contemplating using Evelyn as the main character's name, with Evie as her nickname lol. Great minds think alike, huh? If anything, I've got a list, and I'll find another one. (I am OBSESSED with names-they make me happy).
Third: Yay for short people! Haha, I love how Evie is short (5'2" people rock! I just hit 5'2 so it makes me happy. Especially when some writers say their character is short at 5'5. I'm always like, "Excuse me, but what universe are you living in? 5'5 is average, people, average" lol)
Fourth and lastly: This story seems totally amazing so far. Tully is awesome (even though I keep picturing Tully the monster, hairy dude from Monsters, Inc. But really, Tully McFadden is doing an awesome job of getting rid of that image; he seems hot.
Fifth (okay, so I lied): I'll read chapter two when I get back from the chiropractor.
Sorry for the huge review lol

hmm...ok, tully and evie were actually acting ok around each other then! but what's the gloucester thing that's been in the news? i'm not from the US...haven't really gotten any US news recently...

You have touched upon a weakness of mine... maps and organizing classes. Oh super happy fun time! Seriously. I must refrain from looking at the map. Anyway, I loved this chapter for the interesting first college class experience of it all (did you read my story "I was never late for this class" by any chance? It was about my own personal first college class experience... very memorable) and I get all giddy about things like that. Especially when the professor gave our the "award" thingy.
The whole deal with Lars was pretty weird. I wonder if he will be coming back in the future? Anyway, nice work as always!

I absolutely LOVE this! The characters and their relationships are just too funny! What inspired you to write this? So I've got a few things to say:
1. LOL. I was pronouncing Gloucester "Glaow-chester" in my head. Hahaha.
2. I get why Amory's into economics, but not Evie. What does she want to do?
3. WHO is that Lars kid? LMAO. His horrible pick-up lines cracked me up-especially the "Bond. James Bond" one. Hahahaha!
4. I like that you've stuck a Brit in this-a "Liverpool girl," lol.
5. The tension between Elizabeth and Amory is really fantastically funny.
6. I'm glad Evie and Tully are getting on well again. :) It's so sad to fall out with a best friend.
7. Update soon, please! This is just such great fun to read, and so well-written!

My goodness, what a horrible reviewer I am. I read the first chapter a few days ago and I still haven't reviewed. Pfft, I need to stop doing this. I apologize for being lazy.
Anyways, I love, love, love this story as much as Six Weeks With Satan. I really like Evie's character as well as Tully's and Amory's characters. Hm, I think Elizabeth and Amory would be rather cute together. Haha.
I also think that your writing is extremely good. I can go through your chapters without stopping and getting bored (I admit that actually happens quite frequently).
I hope you update soon. :)

Aw. Love the story! Sorry my review isn't so elaborate. I have to run off to my art class but next chapter I'll do a more lengthy review. :)
Looking forward to the update.

First of all, Amory and Tully singing is absolutely hilarious! xD Haha, that kinda reminds me of the time two of my guy friends started singing this random song to my friend during PE in the bleachers. She got so freaked out, she ran half way across the gym just to get away from them.
The Lars dude has the worst pick-up lines in history...but I see him in future chapters. And the sexual tension between Amory and Elizabeth is so thick. She's just in denial. :D
The professor is quite the character. :D My English teacher was kinda like that...except he called to us as turkeys, not schmucks. Why he compared us to poultry is beyond me.
Good luck with Chapter Three!
| UnforseenSilence chapter 2 . 6/30/2008
OMG! Lol, I can totally see the sexual tenstion bewteen Elizabeth and Amory now. Thats the couple I like, but Tully and Evie have great chemistry, and you do well when explaining that. Lol, maybe its just me, im the kinda girl that likes to argue with guys for fun. Lol, HOPE YOU UPDATE SOON BECAUSE I CANNOT WAIT!
