|Reviews for Wedding Surprise|
| BMW-rocks chapter 1 . 12/28/2009
Hey, I don't normally review stories, but thought I'd leave you a note. I thought this was really lovely, and expresses a lot of emotions, that make me think about what the closet means to me. Whether your family explicitly disapproves of your lesbianness or "approves" but doesn't want to hear about it, you have to decide whether you are going to accept their disapproval or fight it. I really felt Chris's anguish at making that decision.
If I were to suggest that there was a weak point, it would be in the secondary characters, who I felt were almost caricatures of a stereotype. Perhaps it is because I am not from the area, and therefore have thankfully never dealt with people like these, but I found it hard to see them acting in the way that they did. For example, Helene, if she is truly a refined snob of a woman, would not want to make a scene anywhere, and it seems to me she'd rather be polite to someone she disliked than create a situation where someone may lash out. But that's just me.
I also found it a bit bizarre that Sheryl did not tell her sister about the baby. Sheryl gets painted as a bit of a selfish, spoiled brat, who wants to be the centre of attention. It would make more sense for her to tell her sister about the baby, wouldn't it? I get that she doesn't want to hear about her sister's life, but to not tell Chris about her life seems odd.
Anyhoo, suffice it to say, I read this on a whim and I'm glad I did. It's definitely making me consider how much I want to discuss with my own family. Thanks for that.

This is the best one shot I have ever read, it actually brought a few tears to my eyes near the end, I think you are an amazing author I love your stories.

It's extremely rare for my to browse around Fiction Press, but I'm glad I did today. This is the first story by you I've ever read - and I loved it! I'm definitely going to read the others sometime soon.
I'm not one to read romance stories, usually. But sometimes I browse around for something light and a bit different, and this is one of those things.
To be honest, I though the jumps in time were a bit awkward (huge gaps of... nothing?), but I liked the overall flow. I was quite surprised to read how you developed Berk's character. I thought him one of those prudes as well in the beginning, but he turned out even the better person than Sheryl during the anniversary. I especially liked Nicole - she's awesome :D
Well, I'm off reading more of your stories, although I might have to wait a bit with the longer ones.
I hope you'll be writing more soon! (Especially fantasy - my favourite :P)

I read this the first day you posted it, and just realized I didn't say anything!
Two words for you...LOVED IT! You do the one shots real well. Great balance of detail, dialogue, and plot. For being such a short story, you had well developed characters. I felt as if I knew them. Two thumbs up, my friend!

well i have to say this is the best one shot i have ever read. it was well thought out and you can tell that. it moved at a good rate and it did not feel unfinished as much as i hate to say because i would love to hear more. and you are absolutely right when you said freedom is hopeful and i love that someone wrote a story that showed it so fully. congratulations on an awesome story.
