Absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for bringing this to the internet. I feel as if I were Bernadette (the description was almost completely accurate anyway, right down to the Asian part) and that I'll have a chance at true love, one day. Thank you. 3

I just have to tell you, I really, really love this story. I particularly love the he says/she says format, and the development of the couple's relationship is perfectly paced, and I am for one immensely glad at the lack of the pointlessly gratuitous sex that I see in a lot of romance stories. It's a gradually blossoming romance, and a romance growing into the kind of love that can last. Several times I had to bite my lips to keep from squee-ing, which when you're at the office messing around in FP instead of working, is just Not Done.
Oh, and bonus points for me: Pinoy ka rin! _ Napakalaking karangalan sa akin ang makatagpo ng kapwa Pinoy sa FP. Dagdag-tamis mabasa yung mga salitang "Maligayang Pagbabalik!" At yung mga kwento mo tungkol sa pag-uwi sa 'Pinas, can-relate po talaga. Marami rin akong kamag-anak sa US na ganyan na ganyan ang karanasan pag umuuwi rito.
Um, just in case some of those words were a little confusing, here's a quick summary: I am so, so, so, so glad to find a fellow Filipino or Fil-Am on FP. _
Thank you for that wonderful ride of a story.

That was so flippin beautiful! I don't know how to describe the images and play on emotions that you evoked out of this one-shot but DANG, I hope you continue two write more one-shots because that was just astoundingly amazing. From the description of their story and relationship from going to a jock-nerd cliche story and delving in even further, I was wondering if perhaps this was a real-life romance. Kudos...truly, and thanks for posting this on fictionpress! The readers are ever-thankful :D.

I really have reread this a million times. And it never fails to bring me to tears by the end. Everything just fit so...naturally. I love it.
And I have also nominated this story for best oneshot at Skow Awards at . Congratulations and I really hope this story wins (:

I understand what the appeal is to this story, and I can see what you wanted to execute. However, as a reader I can not honestly say I enjoyed myself too much. The banter and the story itself was very predictable, and that was a big turn off for me. If there was more plot and conflict, I may have liked it more, but other than the format, I can easily forget this story.

Awwwwww they are so cute togetherrr..! I love the title, it's perfect one for this story.

Hey there! I'm Rosie from A Drop of Romeo and I'm happy to tell you that your story has been added to our archive, under the category of 'one shot'. Here's your review:
Rosie Thinks: This one-shot is set up in a very interesting way - 25 perspective changes, in 'his' and 'her' POVs (both characters are unnamed). This sounds like it would be quite jarring and annoying, but nexia managed to pull this off quite well. It ends up being extremely sweet and cute to see their love story in stages, in both their POVs. Another interesting thing nexia has done is set both POVs in first person, but they address the other as 'you'. nexia, once again, has managed not to turn me off the story and it actually drew me in. Both these features I found to be incredibly unique, so that this story will be one I won't forget.
I don't know how Nexia managed it in such a short space, but both the characters had their own personalities and quirks. They start out as cliche, almost stereotypical characters - the jock and the nerd - but they develop into more than that as you read on.
I loved how this story didn't give you every detail of their relationship, but it gave you insights into what happened at different stages. All of it was well-written and to the point, and I liked how the author didn't use copious amounts of detail. It was adorable seeing their relationship grow and the whole thing made for an ultra sweet, fluffy read.

My goodness! That was quite possibly one of the cutest stories ever. I enjoyed reading every word of it! Keep up the great work :)

Awww, this was such a cute and fluffy story :)) but I liked how different it was, because the girl was openly "weird" and you don't see that often in stories (which is unfortunate, because I can personally relate). Loved it!
