| Lydia chapter 1 . 8/5/2012
I love this so much! I don't even know how I came across it, honestly. But it is lovely and kinda just made my day. And I don't know about love at first sight- but maybe at first conversation.

I don't know. I guess it depends on how you define love. I think of love as knowing someone, and I mean knowing them really well, and knowing all of their quirks and habits and ways of looking at the world and loving everything about them, and loving them. Love at first sight? A love that is based solely on a look, to me, is a shallow love. Attraction at first sight, yes, of course, but love? Love is so much deeper than that. I just think that you diminish the feeling when you believe that love can happen in an instant. Because I don't think that it can. I think that love takes time, and maybe hard work, and a bit of putting yourself out there for someone else to see. You know what I mean?
Now as pretentious as THAT sounded haha, I would just like to throw in that I have never actually been in love. I have been incredibly close, and I am just drawing from that experience and other observations. But I am always up for being convinced that I am wrong! :)))
I like this! I like your style of writing. I like words, and you have a way of making them poetry. So really, good job. As for a suggestion...I really like realistic characters. I think plot is important, but really amazing characters I think make a story. So make them believable! Okay, that's all I have to say, really good job though!

No. That, I believe, is infatuation, if not a slight crush.
Ohmigash. THIS. STORY. IS. 3.
Made me believe that there is a way to make cliches beautifully and wonderfully written.

No, I don't. I think love grows, like a flower.
| Be The Best chapter 1 . 6/11/2012
No. But i do believe in attraction at first sight and liking. But love? It's hard enough for me to believe in love at all, but at first sight? You'll just hear me laughing at you all the way to Ohio.

This was a lovely piece, and I resonated with the girl.
I had not known love for myself, not the type that you would write songs and poetry about. (I'm kind of ashamed of that, since I'm already nearing 20 and I just feel like I'm left out, but anyway.) I just imagine that I would be stubborn and proud enough when I do fall into it myself that I wouldn't want to - as you say "shatter" and "drown" into it. I guess I'm just very cautious, nervous and anxious when it comes to it.
And to answer the question, I don't believe in love at first sight. Why? To be honest, I think it's because I'd always find a fault in a person before I could "love" them. Hmm, I don't know. I think that I have too much baggage and personal issues that I couldn't see myself in that situation, much more believe in it.
Sorry I couldn't give anymore constructive criticism, I don't really know much about creative writing. All I can say, though, is that I enjoyed this piece. :) Great job!

Dude! This was one of the best stories on this site! Where did all the chapters go?
| BaleighTheMadQueen chapter 1 . 2/12/2012
Hi:) My name is Baleigh and I suddenly felt the need to answer your question. So, yeah, that's what this review is for. I'd like to start by saying that, for me, believing or not believing in true love is much more than a one word answer. I currently have a gigantic crush on this boy I go to school with. I can't say that I love him, because I don't, and a while ago I would've said that I didn't believe high schoolers could love at all. Anyway, for all intents and purposes, I started "loving" this boys personality, the little glimpses of truth I would see when no one was watching. The light behind his eyes when he was with his friends, or the look he would get to hide the stress he felt. I fell in "love" when I first ran into his personality, which I guess is a form of love at first sight. But when people fall in real love at first sight, it can't truly be love. You can't truly know all about someone at first glance. You may want to, believe me when I say I do, but it's completely irrational. There's so much more to a person than that first look. You could meet the most gorgeous male specimen you've ever seen, and conciously think that you love him, right before he murders you. Love at first sight should really be dubbed lust at first sight. It's that lust that drives you to get to know, then consequently fall in love with, that person. So, when asked the question about whether or not I believe in love, I can't answer in one word. Because in some ways, I do. I believe in something that can later be mistaken as love, when really it's just the routine reaction conducted in our bodies that releases neurotransmitters, like dopamine, to slap our mind and tell it "that person, that person right over there. He/she is the one for you, sexually speaking."
Right, well, I sent this because your little question there inspired me...hope this doesn't somehow come at some horrible time and ruin your day. Or make you rethink some 2 year long relationship that is quickly leading to marriage...that would probably be bad. Or it might actually be good, depending on how you look at it...but probably bad.

Can you please ignore my last review? HAHAHA. I misread. So anyway.. please continue. I want to know where this story goes. I want to read about a story with a direction, because maybe it would give me hope that someday, my story would-also have somewhere to go, that is. :)

I'm back in fictionpress! :)) I missed this story! I doubt you still remember me thought. But seriously, your unique style of writing still gives me goosebumps! I wanted to answer your question about my all-time favorite band... it's ALL TIME LOW! \m/

i found Maybe last night and got up to here this morning.
i absolutely love this story. really. this story is up there with my favourite books like Paper Towns, The Art of Keeping Secrets and the Harry Potter series.
your writing is raw and beautiful and dreamlike and just so real all rolled into one. brilliant and wonderful.
i hope you finish this story and get published one day. because i'd really like to put a book like this story on my favourites shelf.
...sorry, this is kinda a rubbish review, but i don't really know what to say about something like this. it's just so beautiful and your characters are amazing and real and i have nothing to criticise you on at all.
anyway, i hope you finish this :)

| Juliette chapter 13 . 11/5/2011
There are some many different types of love I guess but they're all the same in the end. I think the difference between love towards you family and love towards someone else is that. You feel like someone is as important as your family and possibly more. Someone you never want to leave, someone you need.
But this is coming from someone who has never been in love.

Answer: I used to be horribly shy sometimes and only confident around family and randoms. I couldn't exactly be confident around my friends. Now I'm confident because after recent events I stopped caring about what a lot of people think.
Song: Human by the Killers (this probably isn't really it but it's the closest thing I can think of now)

Answer 1:It's CHRISTMAS (That's all that needs to be said)
Answer 2: You can judge a persons personality by their cover or at least some parts
