To be honest, don't you think Alexis and Paige are almost same here. Alexis is going to go through the pain which Wyatt gives to her. He loves her but can't love her the way she needs to be loved. Doesn't she going to end up feeling the same way as Paige who felt inadequate for Peter?
And I also feel Peter and Wyatt are almost same. Peter married someone else and expect Paige to be comfortable with that fact. Same way as how Wyatt leaves Alexis and only concentrates on Paige.
Did Wyatt tried his relationship with Alexis to workout?.

This is so good, it is devoid of all cliches and the character development is simply good. I just loved the ending and how they stuck to their true characters till the end of the story.

I read this again today for the second time after 4 months and I still loved it! I really find this story awesome that I had to log out and write another review (because fictionpress doesn't allow multiple reviews per user account per chapter of a story lol) This is my most favorite oneshot! I don't mind the length of it at all because it's really good! Kudos to u! I'm a fan!

There were flaws in the writing but because its such a long piece, and a good one, I wouldn't hold it against you. This is such a meaningful piece because it captures and showcase the little things in life that we tend to neglect and take for granted. I could relate to Paige on so many levels because just like her, I'm also scared of love and opening myself up to the world. This piece makes me want to find my own happy ending and put more faith in myself haha. So thank you so much for sharing this! Keep writing and stay awesome! (:

That is one beautiful os. Yes, its a bit cliched but still managed to retain its charm. I'll be honest though, I love stories with happy endings and thus I liked this one too. A fact that is commendable is that you've managed it without being too sappy. And I liked the end part a lot.
P.s. Wyatt's cute

They're only a few oneshots out there that depict life the way you do: With all its faults.
Even though the story is a bit cliche, and a tad dramatic,it shows the simplicity of human thoughts and the shallow reasoning behind actions.
very genuine story, looked like it actually happened in real life.
So, all in all:

Oh my gosh THE FEELS RIGHT NOW. This was so beautifully written and just so amazing. The last part had me crying ugh I love this so much!

I can't string together my emotions towards this piece of work, but I insist on publishing this in somewhat gratitude and admiration of what you have done. It certainly bugs me how beautiful writing like this is not widely recognised, whilst there are rubbish things out there being appreciated by the ignorant, but nonetheless. Loved the story. Amazing job, keep it up! Maybe, just maybe, one day I'll be able to write a good tale like you do. At least I hope to. Have a great life. xx

Hi! It's Juliet from A Drop of Romeo. When your story was featured on ADoR, a judge wrote this review for it: There's not all that much I can say about this one-shot. It's amazing, but it's very straightforward as well and sort of the same all the way through. That doesn't make it bad; it's almost refreshing in a world of one-shots that are quirky and crazy and very alive. It was nice to read a normal story with a quiet, slow romance.
It's about Paige and Wyatt. The pair can't be any more opposite: Paige is stoic and cautious while Wyatt is adventurous and unfailingly happy. Paige finds him one night inside a phone booth, and, after the phone is stolen from both of them, she offers to give him a ride to his girlfriend's apartment. When that takes a turn for the much worse, he (platonically) spends the night at Paige's place, which eventually leads to him unofficially moving in... for five years. How it plays out is sort of obvious.
Happy Endings is over 17,000 words yet never seemed to drag on. There is a lot more narration than dialogue, but it didn't get boring or hard to understand. It was really beautifully written; some lines were surprisingly insightful.
It was very easy to understand how both Paige and Wyatt felt, as well as the other characters who were simply observing their relationship. Despite the wonderful descriptions of and reasoning behind their emotions, I found myself wanting to slap Paige very much for hurting Wyatt, but I also wanted to slap Wyatt for not understanding Paige. It was easy to relate to both the characters, though: to Paige for being afraid of love and losing her independence, and to Wyatt for his constant optimism and general happy-go-lucky attitude.
The ending was a little hard for me to read, but that was probably just because of my strong dislike for drama. There were some grammar mistakes, but definitely not enough to distract from the story, especially considering the fact that it's 17,000 words long! It seemed like you never really got to know the characters, which sort of made it hard to care about them or their budding romance.
In spite of that, I 100% recommend Happy Endings. The timing is a thing of beauty; the characters, while not wholly realistic, were easy to understand; the plot is original and well-executed. If you find yourself bored at home with nothing to do, then read this one-shot. Just make sure you have a lot of time and a lot of pillows/punching bags!
