Vena! This was great! Fantastic work! Noticed improvement (as in, complete fixing) with your syntax - all good, all good. :)
Where to start. I hate reviewing. I liked your main character a lot - she was unabashed and unafraid. I love when I like female MCs - it doesn't happen often anymore.
I think I especially liked the "life lessons" attached to this. I just graduated on saturday and read the commencement address and really admired mikey's speech - unexpected and clever. This piece was intelligent, but also had the typical elements of sweetness in a "typical" chick-lit. A good balance. I think what I liked best was the way that Laura was legitimately ready to move on. Even if mikey hadn't run after her, she would have been okay. That is an important addition, because it made Laura seem far more rational (not to mention feminist versus 50s housewife) than a typical romance heroine. It was refreshing, exactly what FP needs, and realistic. The ending wasn't saccharine. It was genuine sugar.
Also loved the similes you used for five-year-old Laura. So effing perfect.
I think the only issue I had was how abruptly mikey became a genius. I was picturing him as a total jock. Maybe make him a little geekier and it won't seem like such a convenience that he ended up brilliant. That's just my opinion. :)
Again, great work. Keep writing!

:) that was really very good, and extremely funny
my favourite part was when mikey read his graduation letter out. but the time when he did his im too sexy dance is a severe rival.
laura's a great character - very forward! :) very refreshing

:D You know how much I love this. I've gushed all over gchat about it to you. I do have to say that I hate FP for not letting you put in a period in the title, lol. But, anyway! Much love. Awesome writing, and I'm so happy for you about this. :) Seriously. Wonderful job! S2 S2

Super super cute. I love the format you have for this, and the way the voice changes as Laura gets older. Very well executed. Laura wasn't exactly shameless, but I love how honest her character was and how realistic her and Mikey's friendship was. Everybody remembers their childhood crushes, and everybody remembers how embarrassing they could be. Kids have no censors, they don't understand playing hard to get, and I felt like that was definitely channeled here.
The fact that there wasn't any big, dramatic get together at the end made me happy-they're still friends before everything else and I like that you emphasized that. If there's romance after, that's just bonus points. :)

I genuinely can't say enough how much this one-shot appealed to me, gaah, so good.

It's so cute. I loved the transition of young Laura to old Laura. And Mikey being a poser and kind of a disturbing perv was awesome too. :)

I absolutely, postively, utter LOVE this one shot! Oh gosh, I don't even know how to put into words lol
All the cringe worthy parts (did he REALLY pull down his pants? well, i can see that happening lol) were hilarious as well lol
I thought the ending was perfect esp with Mr. Pork and Mrs Ham!
You're writing is always so awesome and I always love reading your stories!
Hope you're well!

It was so sweet and heart warming.
I loved it (:
| AnonElli chapter 1 . 5/25/2010
That was absolutely lovely; I teared up a bit while reading the speech, laughed at their childhood antics, winced at the unbearably bad moments and grinned like an idiot at the ending.
Oh, you amazing, brilliant person, you.
