I absolutely loved it. I know that this is already completed and that I am probably a supposed to be writing a review of the chapter but I just wanted to say that I loved this. And also that your writing kept me on the edge of my seat/ beanbag the whole time. I hope you keep writing and sorry if something happened and you stopped or yay! that you kept going. If you couldn't tell already I am a little out of date. But, yeah, long story short I loved your writing.

HI. I've spent most of my night-morning rereading this fic. Gah so lovely! I still loved it, I still found it incredibly sweet... I'm sorry about the random reviews I wrote back in October (I would like to say I was drunk, but who am I kidding).
Anyway. Just wanted to let you know I reread this! And will come back, surely, though one of my New Year's resolutions was to lay back from fictionpress... I don't really see that happening.
Thank you for this story! Last time I read the story I reviewed that I found typos? Well I really couldn't seem to find them this time around... Though I doubt you would be interested in fixing them ages after posting the story.
Hope you had a great time these holidays! :)

WHAT I thought he had DIED! You cruel person! I almost had a heart attack right there, and it would've been someone's fault...!
Now seriously. I loved the story! It was sort of clichéd, but not too much, and I really am a sucker for best friends turned romantic, so yep I loved it! It wasn't too sappy nor corny nor mushy. It was perfect all the way round. I really liked ALL characters. Like seriously, no complaints with your story. The only thing would have to be the fact that I noticed a couple of typos...? But just one or two in the whole story. Overall it was great. Well written, entrancing. I wanted to keep reading until I finished. So, congratulations! I'll definitely read it again! And sorry. I am aware that for a non-English person, I sure tend to ramble A LOT. And I can't seem to shut up. But ah well. I hope you don't mind, you seemed like a nice and funny person in your author's notes... (SORRY ANYWAY)
Thank you for writing this story and making me love it.

I should probably shut up already. But I just want to say, I love Deacon. Maybe not LOVE, but I definitely like him thus far! He's not that awful, he would've been an asshole if he'd kicked Boyd out when she came crying to him, but, alas, he didn't. So I like him (just clarifying because your author's note made my heart ache for the poor guy).

Nope, not falling for the Christmas question. Nope.
(Yes, I love Christmas. And the Wise Men.)

You really like to get a girl talking, don't you? You asked about Halloween. It's in a couple of weeks, so I'll tell you my plans. Here in Spain it's not really that big of a deal, but my friends and I love dressing up so. This year we are repeating our sophomore year's costumes (gasp!). I just love them... We went as Disney villains. I was (and will be) the Queen of Hearts - but not like the ugly cartoon, I tried to turn myself into a Helena Bonham-Carter wannabe, and it didn't really work but ah well I tried, I even sewed my own hearts skirt. My friends are Cruella, Ursula (the octopus woman), Maleficent, the ugly Queen from Snowhite, Hook, Gaston and Prince Charming (Shrek's, though he is Dreamworks, not Disney, but ah well). And yes, we are a very childish gang.
And oh, I am still liking you story, yes (sorry if you hate me for all these non-reviewing reviews, but you asked).

Just started reading this, and I'm not one to review much, but I thought I'd share my drunk freshman story. It's not really funny, but ah well. It's a recollection of little memories my friends and I have, all put together to create sort of a timeline... It was the night we finished our first midterms. My best friend and I decided getting drunk would be great, and we didn't eat any dinner (smart). One of our friends realised this so he bought us a huge packet of oreos. And we decided to dip them in our vodka. Not a good idea. We got so so so drunk. Another friend had brought absenta and we decided to play I've never with absenta shots. The rest of the night is sort of vague in our memories, but we all remember going down go the beach (we were at a friend's, who lived right on the beach) and skinny dip. The house owner lost his keys while in the water (we never understood why, if we were SKINNY dipping). When we got out of the water, two of my friends decided to wear each other's underwear (wtf) and we all went up to the small promenade leading between houses. Now, on this promenade, there are a couple of benches spread along. We ALL (we were five girls and three guys) remember us girls jumping from bench to bench in our underwear as we headed back to the house. The next day, when we went down to the promenade, the benches were all separated by at least 5 metres. Seriously. We concluded absenta gives superpowers... Anyway we got back to the house, and of course we didn't have keys. And the only thing open was a balcony on the second floor. So two of the guys tried climbing up (and it took them a hell of a long time) and then came downstairs and opened a window for us (because the locked door couldn't be opened from the inside...). Once inside us girls decided to shower together, and I REALLY DONT KNOW HOW, but we used ice cream as shower gel. Chocolate ice cream. While standing in the tub, the curtain fell on top of our heads - and we had to call over the guys to put it up, after making them swear they'd do it with their eyes closed. When we got out of the shower, we were really really sticky (chocolate ice cream, seriously?) and we left the floor sticky and slippery. No one remembers much else of the night, but the next morning we woke up literally stuck to the floor. For some reason, the guys were all tucked in their beds. Us girls were on the floor. There were random items of clothing (including underwear) lying around the floor (also stuck to the chocolate ice cream, I'm guessing), but we were all fully clad in our underwear. And we were covered in m&ms. Like, they were stuck to our skin (sort of). We never knew where they came from, we never knew what happened in that house after our chocolate ice cream shower. But needless to say, my friend was banned from ever hosting another get-together at his house. Even though we didn't even break a vase. Ah well.
Anyway that is the story. Not too funny, but ah well. We retell it every opportunity we get (like right now). It beats the other story, also from freshman year, where my best friend and me had to catch a plane home at 10 am, and at 4am that night we ended up in the hospital because she couldn't handle her alcohol and had fallen unconscious, hypoglycemic. And I got chucked out of the hospital's waiting area because I started singing at the top of my lungs. And when we finally made it to the airport (because we did get there!) I realised I'd lost my ID and had to do a lot of crying to get the stewardess to allow me to get on the plane. I'll admit I used to be one of the drunkest freshmen. And sophomores. And all college students. Now I'm 24, finishing med school, and I've taken to only drinking beer and sangría. They make me funny but not embarrassingly drunk.
And so that's it. SORRY for the ramble, hope you laughed some? If you didn't, sorry again. I'm really liking your story. I'll review again soon. Thank you for not killing me already and shouting something along the lines of "WOMAN JUST STOP TYPING!", but I won't take my chances. This is me shutting up.

First: ARE YOU KIDDING ME. THAT WAS THE BIGGEST MIND TRIP EVER I SERIOUSLY THOUGHT DEACON DIED. I WOULDVE CRIED OH MY GOD NO NEVER AGAIN.
Second: This was really good! I love your writing. (Obviously by my feelings displayed above)

I was half way through the epilouge and I was about to start crying, throwing a tantrums, and getting ready to write a very angry and upset review for you; thinking of the many ways that poor Boyd had suffered and only ended up suffering more I had a speech prepared everything! However. I was so overjoyed and ecstatic. She got her happy ending.
That poor girl, she had such a terrible life, after losing her father everything went down the drain and she was picked up when Deacon came into her life only to leave. Then him... His name doesn't even deserve to be spoken. Dark and evil man, I must say, I loved your writing. To be able to induce such strong angry emotions for a character is a skill in itself, some people have trouble with that.
I enjoyed your story very much and found it very hard to put down and do my daily chores and do important things during the day. I stayed up late to read and then woke up only to continue reading.
At first when I came to reading it, I thought, oh yeah, just another, rags to riches story. Its going to be cliche and corny. And although it was all of what I said above, it was done with taste, accuracy and in moderate modesty, it was written in a different manner, it was written to draw people in, to capture its audience.
Now, my criticisms, I did notice throughout your story there have been minor errors such as saying 'shes' instead of 'hes' and things alike. It wasn't that much of a bother cause as I said I was drawn into the story, just something I thought if point out. Next is the AN, and although I love it when an author replies to reviews and all, it got a bit frustrating at times thinking there was more to read than there actually was. I guess its a pet peeve in a way.
I so hope that you're still writing and if you ever starved for ideas I'd love to bounce some plot and schemes with ya! Happy writing!
