Aww I loved this story!
I'm so sad it's over! and the ending was good... but sad (
I wish I knew what happens after he leaves!
Any chance you would do a sequel?

so so so so good. i started reading this last night and finished it today and i'm trying not to cry because i'm all dressed and made up to go out. and crying would absolutely wreck me. i like the not-so-cliche ending, how it's happy AND sad at the same time. i have to say, well done with the writing of this. will be going up on my favourites for sure.

End of the story.
Told you I'd be back.
All I have to say is that this was amazing.
And the end chapter made me cry, for the combined reasons of the fact that I face a situation soon to come that will be almost exactly the same and also because it was so touching and amazing as an ending.
I adored this story.

Wow. This story is amazing so far. I also believe this is the first story I have actually sat down to read all day for the first time in a very long time. And it took me less than a day to read. I love that it pulled me in so much that I was able to just sit and read for so long.
I very much so understand military relationships and all of the emotions tied to this story considering that I'm dating a soldier, yay, but not American. We're Canadian. Haha.
Anyway, enough rambling. Just know this is very well written with very few grammatical mistakes, just one every here and there, which is impressive and makes me happy because I am a grammer freak.
The plot is very engaging, even if it does contain a few cliches and predictabilities, though you put them in with very creative ways. I love this. I'll probably have another review posted as soon as I reach the end of this story, which will be soon, I believe.
Anyhow, I'm finishing this ridiculously long review with the request that you send me the alternate version of this chapter, just so I can see what that would have been like in the story.
One last finishing note, I would like to mention that if you would like some help or anything on sex scenes, I may be able to help if you like. I don't have any posted on FP yet, but I feel the extension of help wouldn't hurt anybody.
Nonetheless, I am finished. See you at the end of the story.

Great story...you brought out the feelings of the characters very well, and I, as a reader, felt connected throughout.
Oh, and EPILOGUE! Haha, sorry...but I would love to read one. Your ending was perfect, but I'm still curious as to them reuniting.
And poor Harry...ouch!
Keep on writing!

I really loved this story. The ending was good but I almost wish I knew what happened when he gets back.

Wonderful story! I really enjoyed myself while reading this story. I loved your characters, it was nice to see that they remained being themselves even though but of them grew a lot through the story. Changing previous misconceptions or prejudices is truly difficult and I think they both could do it. I think it's a nice story that makes us see that taking chances can be something great and that people are more than what we initially see. Now I'm going to see if you had other stories.
| brittany chapter 20 . 3/24/2009
hey i have to say i love this story. its well written and now you have me wondering what the hell happens to them when he gets back. i'm impressed. i've read so many books it takes a lot to get me hooked on a story but you did.
| KariandTK chapter 20 . 3/23/2009
I hope you write a sequel to this are at least a one-shot of him getting back to her. I totally loved this story and wanted to cry at the end. I wanted him to stay but I understood the importance of him going. I love that you threw in the dogtags - perfect moment. :)

| 53BookTitles chapter 20 . 3/22/2009
BEST. ENDING. EVER!
I cannot believe you wrote that, it was like a real bok, a fully mad book, bro.
Congrats on it.
| Muggle Minx chapter 20 . 3/21/2009
Of course I love it!
Sequel! Sequel! ;j
| TishDaFish chapter 20 . 3/21/2009
Ahh that was epic! I couldn't stop reading it!
I'll have to check out more of your work now. Keep it up! D
| summers-end chapter 20 . 3/20/2009
Wow this was so amazing! And such a different premise, I LOVED it!
And I loved the way you ended it; it's so cute but genuinely heart-warming too.
Are you going to put up an epilogue? The story doesn't need it but -I- wouldn't mind one to find out where they are in a few years or less or more or whatever. I kinda fell in love with all your characters and I certainly wouldn't mind reading more about them. :)
| rosakissu chapter 20 . 3/19/2009
Ok so while there were many mistakes throughout the whole story, I still have to say I liked it pretty much :) Made me smile stupidly in the end too, it was really sweet! Now that doesn't mean that I think that this story is perfect, the mistakes did get on my nerves at times, they were often typos or it was just simply clear that you hadn't let someone else read it over to fix the things but still it did take a lot from the magic of the story.
However I think this story really has got potential and once you edit it I think it will be totally worth it. There are quite many stories on military men and their sweethearts, but a Marine and a liberal, that's gotta be something new.
Still, I think you could've worked on their different views some more, bring it more often into the story, in the end I kinda almost forgot that Ant was left-winged (the only thing indicating that, was prob the fact that she was smoking, it kinda reminded me of that, don't even know why, prob 'cause I smoke myself...).
So their different views on political matters was what actually drew me to this story, and yeah, it kinda just... was... I don't know, dismissed. You could've worked more with that, for example her interview with him could've been a good way to let them get to know each others viewpoints and maybe change some of their own opinions, You did kinda touch that sometimes, but I think you could've made it sometimes a little bit more clearer.
Anyways I hope you take this (horridly) long revies as what it is, constructive critizism, and I really hope it'll help you in some way... yep.
