Just discovered this story this morning and just at this moment I finished reading, all I've got to say is that it's simply brilliant! One of of my favorites already :)

Gah! I really loved this story. Wonderful. One of the chapters in here...I think it's the same one with the love scene or then maybe the one before...basically the part where they were having that sort-of-picnic and spilling their guts to each other...it reminded me of sweet song called We Are Birds (by Brighten) ...just thought I'd mention that. You're a really talented writer, by the way! Keep it up!

Awesome! I actually like that ending... even though I feel like there is still so much left unresolved. Their relationshop is far from perfect, I mean, they merely 'patched things up', really, but as you wrote in the last line, they will start to build something from there, together. I really feel like there is something else that could be written about Imogen and Cameron, you know? It's like we only got a glimpse at their life and relationship, and it's taken away from us. That's a compliment, by the way, albeit a weird one.
The characters are interesting, they don't seem flat or cliché. They're just trying to make it work, and I wish you'd explored their life a bit more... but you know, it's your choice. (Although if you decide to write a sequel... I won't complain. At all.) I just want you to know that I really enjoyed reading your story, and I sincerely hope you will keep writing on FP in the future. Thank you for sharing this with us!

Thank you for writing this story.
I read it in one go, I absorbed it - and enjoyed it very much.
At first, I was a bit apalled by Cameron's attitude, his impoliteness and how he treated people like dirt. Then I became fascinated and wondered how this could possibly work out. It's wonderfull, how you managed to let the characters stay true to themselves and be happy at the same time. Thank you.

I love the story!
Can't wait for more!
Hope you update soon!
Have a great day!

Wow. Only one more chapter? That's just sad! I feel like I could read about Cameron and Imogen (well, mostly Cameron) for another twenty chapters or so! I really feel like there are so many things that are left unsaid right now, it's terrible. I can't wait until you post chapter 15, yet... I don't want it to end. Dilemmas are awful. Maybe you could write like... On the Bright Side part. 2? Or something? *puppy eyes* No? Okay...
On a completely unrelated note... man, I feel bad for Cameron. And for guys in general, actually. They're so badly treated in stories, they're always on the wrong side of everything and we always accuse them of screwing things up. Yeah, it really sucks to be a guy in a romance on FP. - Okay, I'm rambling right now, but it does relate to your story. Cameron has to defend himself against everybody, I mean, it's not his fault if she left! (Btw, I really want to know what the heck went through her head when she decided that leaving was a good idea!)
Hum. Yeah, I liked that chapter, even though it was definately frustrating to read. I just can't wait to see if Cameron and Imogen will (finally) be reunited-without too much yelling, and without killing each other, hopefully. Good luck for chap. 15!

Cameron is awesome :) Okay, so he started smoking again, which is bad for him, but hey! I'll let that go for now. We're really seeing a (kind of) softer side of him when he's with Alex, that's nice. He acts cold and uncaring, but really, he cares. He just expresses it differently. It's nice to see that he's not overly sentimental and totally changed because of Imogen. He's still himself, and he was still himself even when they were 'together' (well, not really, but you know what I mean). He expressed what he felt a bit more, but he can't change who he is. I got to say that I really liked the part when Alex woke up and said Cameron's name, and he just wept. It's simple, without too much description, but it works.
Todd is being a great friend to him, that's just what he needs. The dog poo really made me laugh. That's so mean, but so playful, I love it. And Alex is just adorable. I can see why he's the only one that Cameron is really close to (or wants to be, anyway). He doesn't judge him, he takes him the way he is (even when he's a mean jerk).
Hm, interesting. Todd IS a great friend, really. He didn't have much of a choice, it was the only way they could talk to each other... but I'm quite sure Imogen and Cameron's meeting didn't end the way Todd expected it. Imogen tells him she's sorry (I kind of felt bad for her there, but I still think it was a stupid, ridiculous move to just leave after they slept together! That's what started all this bad blood between them.) and then she *leaves*? That's just mean. Maybe he actually intends to... I don't know... talk things through? She can't leave! Cameron has to say he's sorry and he still wants to be with her! That's so very frustrating. Really. I can't wait to see what's going to happen in the next chapter! I hope you update soon!
(By the way, it's just a suggestion, but maybe if you accepted anonymous reviews you'd receive more reviews? I know many people don't have a FP account, or don't want to get one only to leave reviews. Just a suggestion!)

i hope she's pregnant. that thing about her standing up too fast is making me think she is.
yay for cameron for admitting that he is afraid for his brother to himself!
i hope you update soon :D

I need more! I love this story and I'm glad you brought Alex back, even though he was hurting!
| x Storm x chapter 13 . 8/11/2010
Wow, that was an intense chapter. I hope Alex will make it without too much long-term damages! The poor guy is too young to die, as cliché as it sounds. I like this character, so... don't kill him?
Finally we get a glimpse at Imogen's past! What she lived through was downright terrible, but it seems it made her stronger. Good for her. However... I'm probably the only one feeling like that, but I think Cameron has the right to be mad at her. She basically made him open up, then she tore him apart. That's got to hurt. He acted like a jerk, that's for sure, in Alex's hospital room, but I can understand where he's coming from. All the stress (and the guilt, maybe?) over not being there enough for Alex must've hit him when he learned about the wreck.
Still, I hope Imogen and him can learn to talk to each other (without lying or shouting) some time soon. They're both so defensive about... well, everything, that it's hard for them to just *talk* about themselves. I guess I'll have to wait for the next chapter to see how they're going to cope (again) with their animosity. Keep writing, because this story is getting better every chapter!

Very good story! I can't believe you don't receive more reviews. I'm half in love with Cameron, maybe because he's one of the characters that looks the most like me in... about every FP stories I've read (sad, I know). I think it's heartbreaking how Imogen just... threw away everything they had (however awkward and uncertain it was). After everything she said about opening ourselves to the world... well, that's quite hypocritical. Yet, I can totally understand that she got scared, too. It's easier to preach than to act upon what we preach, right? I can't wait to see what's in store for them, I really want to see how they will cope with their 'separation' and which one will try to fix it.
