|Reviews for Chasing Mr Darcy|
| BabblingBug19 chapter 1 . 4/28/2012
I can't believe it myself, but this story made me cry! (Or maybe it's just me PMS-ing.) I really felt for Laura when the lover of her life was chasing after her sister. At least, Lizzie was not a bitch, and I loved her for that. And with the really well-written letters? Tipped the tears out my eyes. More power! I've always loved your works. )

Possibly the best thing I've ever read.

I wanted to review this story, and then decided against it, and then did it anyway. Usually you either want to review or you don't because you either enjoyed what you read or you just didn't. With your one-shot I just did not know what to say. I'm sure you didn't need me to tell you how amazing your writing was, because the growing 238 reviews already attest to that. But I'm going to do it anyway. I cried a lot when I was reading this, because well..I think Im overly emotional today and will soon be graduating story was very..well, lets just say that it hit a nerve. People always look for something they can't get, or there is someone out there they care deeply about despite not being valued or understood by them. If that was what you were trying to capture while writing this, you did so beautifully; more so than anyone could ever have. When I read fictionpress, I'm just looking for a good read, but stories like these are rare cause that have some fun, some reality and good honest writing packed into them. I hope you keep writing, because I would love to keep reading.
good luck :)

I like your writing style. It flows really well. The story was a little unbelievable to me but maybe that's because I'm old lol, I don't recall knowng any 14 year olds who drank and smoked weed, & the idea of love at age 5 or that of 5 year olds boys being infatuated with breasts/ girls 10 years older was a little hard to digest. I've taken care of a 4 year old and the only association he made with boobs was with food :p I liked the bitter sweetness of the story but personally I think Laura was a little pathetic and Mikey was just a little too rakish to be attractive. I like the whole childhood infatuation angle but I remember having a childhood friend somewhat like Mikey but I honestly only associate a positive light and innocent feel to my feelings not the tumultous, futile stuff that made up the Mikey/Laura dynamic. The idea that Mikey still doesn't think his feelings for her are as strong for her own are for him was a little sad but I guess that's what makes a bitter sweet ending for a bitter sweet tale. :)

I love all of your stories, and this one is no exception! The way you write, the candid characters, the realistic plotlines... you have a lot of talent, and I hope you keep writing D

Well, a good story. Could relate it to Flipped but I just don't get it that Laura would go to such extreme extent of throwing herself at him. I mean... it's plainly stupid, so was Mikey. Oh well, still a good story though

I'm taking a deep breath...beside me, my brother's game (Skyrim) is on pause mode, and the music playing is soothing. as I am going through this story once again in my course,all of this is irrelevant..what I'm saying is,after I finished with this story of yours, I just sat for a few minutes and tried to calm the sense of euphoria that engulfed me.I was almost to the verge of shedding tears of joy at Mickey's letter(s) to Laura.(I'm pretty emotional :P)
OMG!I don't remember the last time I read such a beautiful romantic one-shot! I don't know how you did it...perhaps the letters were the highlights or the fact that even though it was always Laura trying to get Mickey's attention, Mickey had been so elusive, so secretive...so I don't have words for it...even though he never expressed much, for me, his lack of expression for Laura, was more intense than if he had expressed something. What I'm trying to say is..everything, from when he flashed his genitals at her when they were kids, from taking her diary, to keeping Mrs. Ham safe for all those years, to moving to NYU..they were so utterly bafflingly, mind-numbingly, beautifully expressive.
I'm already a fan of Pride and Prejudice, and after reading this story, I couldn't help but smile at how nicely you made the book define an integral part of Laura and Mickey's life! All in all..you just COMPLETELY made these few minutes of my life worth it! YOU ROCK! This story was just too epic!
Last but not the least, I think this is the longest review I have written anyone on FP! :) you deserve it! :D

That was very cute! The nostalgia was hard though ( I'm graduating soon) and I have to admitt at fist I though Lizzie was gonna die. I really really like it though! And the talking stuffed animals was absolutly amazing! Thank you for making my day!

This is amazing. I can't believe I've never read it before. It's the perfect combination of hilarity and tragedy. I feel like I just lived this love story as I read it, I felt like I was a part of the characters. Stories like this make sifting through all the crap on FP completely worth it. Truly, this is a gem. Thank you.

it was wonderful. Very liberating. Good job.
| its-like-i-sed chapter 1 . 2/13/2012
This was so completely and utterly beautiful and I loved all of it. It made me laugh and feel sad and then laugh some more. This is probably one of the BEST stories I have ever read, it was so amazing and cute and made me think it was so real- I really did wish it were true. I fdelt really depressed today and just had nothing to do and this really did cheer me up so thanks for making my day :) xx

I want you to know just how much this story meant to me. I was rereading it again and I noticed that author's note on top and you were spot on. Every once in a while I really go back to this story and just smile like an idiot after reading it. All the time. This story is without a doubt my favourite one shot that I've ever read. You are amazing. I'm not as good as you in writing for me to explain perfectly just how amazing I think this is. There probably aren't any words that could describe it, even. But I really just wanted you to know that. Later on I will go back to this story again and smile like the idiot I am. Thank you though for writing this.
