Imminent Paradox chapter 2 . 7/9/2009
Aw, I love this chapter! Lol, expecially her friends- they're pretty amazing! XD I think this is a great first chapter, because it really introduces the characters well, and tells us a lot about what's going on. Very nice :)

Hm... I think it's better to have loved and lost. Sure, it hurts, but I think I'd rather that than to never have loved at all... That's just me :)

It's really good so far! I liked the beginning a lot but the end was a little jolting; the story was put into a the frame of someone's writing, and I'm not sure how well that works. As far as spelling, grammar, etc., you've done a great job.

Do I believe in love at first sight? Nope. There's attraction at first sight, and there's lust at first sight, and there's curiosity at first sight. But love is made up of too many things-too many shared experiences and exchanged thoughts-for it to occur instantly. Love is like a fine wine, but that's just my opinion.

I like this. I think it's a very interesting, original beginning. It has definitely caught my attention :)

And love at first sight? Um... I'm going to have to say that, in the real world, that'd be a no. Sorry if I sound like a cynic :)

Heya~ This is a really nice chapter despite the long lead-in.

{Do you tend to sink into deep denial or tell your friends immediately? }about what? about love or something else? I think you should specify the question a bit becuase it's a bit vague ;)

"to look like a car"? LOL! You play into these little jokes beautifully :)

I liked the contrast between this chapter and the first one. The first one was dreamy and poetic, and this one was quirky and lighthearted.

And it's definitely better to have NOT loved. EVER.

That saying is only for those smug losers who have never loved anybody. They say it only to mock us while we wallow in memories. Do you want to know what loving and losing has done for me?

Well, it's ruined the Little Mermaid, for starters.

Maybe, ultimately, it's better to have loved and lost. But not right now. Not while it's still so recent and you still have his smell in your room.

So, I'm going to go with the "It'll be better when you're older" answer. I think.

Again, great job. And I'm jealous.

I don't believe in love at first sight. I DO believe in that feeling where you just KNOW that this person is going to mean something to you. But I believe it takes just one look to fall in love. But maybe after forty million looks.

Sorry. I'm weird.

Anyway, I LOVED this chapter.

I'm not good at explaining why, so I'll just leave it at that.
Irish Eyes 63 chapter 2 . 7/9/2009
It is better to have loved and lost. I'll explain. It is better to feel something and have it for that short amount of time, even if that means losing it later. I would want to feel wanted and loved, but it would hurt like hell to lose it. I can't really explain my meaning because your questions are so simple but need to be explained with emotions and those are the hardest to describe.

I love this chapter, you leave us all with a cliffhanger, and no matter how wrong it is I love it. But your pushing it with withholding the guy's name. Do you know how excited I am with reading the rest? Well just picture someone waiting for the chocolate truck to come. Again this is amazing and I can't wait for your update!

Yes I do believe in LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT beacause I think theres a plan for everyone in the world, I think that your a pawn in the greater good and that greater good gives you the reward you deserve.

This story is really intresting. My friend made me read this and I think this is fabulous. Wonderful job, I really like the idea!

"And I remember realizing only later that your eyes were brown."

Isn't that the truth, though? He just seems EXTRAORDINARY to you, but you realize that he's just a regular person. But I think that's what's cool about it, how somebody who's just ordinary to someone else can be so SPECIAL to you. :)

I liked your introduction of the characters-especially that you spared us all their physical details. (I hate it when hair color and height become the focus of a story, when they have absolutely no relevance to the plot.) Their personalities were really nicely sketched out, without being overbearing. I also like how we still don't have a name for the protagonist, keeps her as the everywoman, which is cool.

So to answer your question: I honestly don't know. I've never had a boyfriend or been in love, so I couldn't tell you, but I think my answer would be yes. I'm sure it's supremely difficult "to have loved and lost," but I believe I would hate to live my life never having experienced love.
WinMyHeart5444 chapter 2 . 7/8/2009
Hello! OH MY GOD! SO GOOD! I can't believe how good this is, it makes me shiver! My favorite part has to be the part about how she always thought she would fall in love with colored eyes. It was so brilliant! AH! Favorite favorite! I haven't read something that had my attention like this in such a long time!

And it is better to have loved than not to have loved at all. Your life would be so empty, so, boring? If you have never loved anyone. I just love loving! And your story of course! Please, please, please update soon! Love, Winnie

WinMyHeart5444 chapter 1 . 7/7/2009
Hello! Okay: Do I believe in love at first sight? My answer is: Absolutely. Let me explain. I believe that love is complicated, and many times is not meant to end with happily ever after, actually, it very rarely does. To me though, I can see a guy, and instantly think: I could love him. Maybe that's just me, but I think you know almost right away whether or not you could stay with this person for the rest of your life. Whether or not their personality meshes well with yours, whether you can take their terrible jokes, or put up with their flaws. So maybe it's not love at first sight exactly, but it would be pretty close. First conversation, I think would fit better. :)

And as for the beginning of the story, I loved it! I loved how you italicized everything and told it like it was a fairytale. So, I loved the question at the end. (I love stories that end with questions.) I cannot wait for more! Update soon!

Love at first sight?

No, not really. Though, I guess I won't rule it out just yet. (:

Loved and lost than not at all?

hm, that's a harder one. In my opinion, yes. (:
Rachelthemuse chapter 2 . 7/4/2009
That's such a hard question :/ I suppose it's better to have never loved, but that's just because of the personality I have - I hate getting hurt, which is why I tend to be cautious in "matters of the heart". So would I rather live my life in casual relationships, never experiencing true-blue love, but never getting hurt? Yeah. I would rather be cold and distant than get close to somebody who can't be with me forever.

I love the story, by the way. And the protagonist is kicka$$, just because I absolutely hate Romeo and Juliet, and tend to love people who hate those impulsive, hormonal teenagers as much as I do.
Spurlunk chapter 2 . 7/4/2009
It was the strangest thing, that look you gave me. You had caught me off guard and probably hadn’t even felt anything, and our eyes had only met by accident because I had horrible timing. I don’t even know how long that look lasted. A second? Maybe less. But it was soft and tender and piercing and made me believe in clichés for just a millisecond there. It was seeing, not just looking. It was the kind of look that leaves you burning. The kind that makes you forget to breathe. The kind that makes your heart jolt. The kind that gives you those fiery chills. The kind that makes you think hey, maybe the whole deal about free-falling is true after all. Maybe hearts can skip beats. Maybe the books were right.

That paragraph. I liked it a lot. It portrayed the whole falling in love thing without being boring and cliche and mushy and just like all the other romance stories out there. My only complaint about this chapter was that...nothing much happened. xP. And I miss the writing style you used in the prologue. It was so rich, like reading a chocolate pie or something.

Is it better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all? I have never loved at all, in the romantic kind of way, so I can't say that I've experienced the first thing, SO I can't say that I know which is better. I'm happy enough right now though. xP
