asdfghjkl This is so damn adorable that I've even managed to bring myself out of lurkdom to comment on the sweet, tooth-rotting adorableness of it. And not in a bad way, you know. Although I don't know how a rotting tooth could be in any way good.
I really don't know how you manage to make James's self-consciousness so CUTE. Adorable. I feel like ruffling his hair. I mean, seriously, running to his home, sinking down to the floor while on the phone, almost squealing when Mickey came over to the studio, making sure he looked all artsy and important-mark my words; I'm definitely gonna die from the cuteness.
Also, the fluffiness really makes me happy. Your other stories, so far I've read the ones that has lots of drama and I just skip to the end (orz), and well, I guess I'm just not in the mood for that or something. So, I didn't do that for this story. I love this. Lots.
Back to lurkdom I go.

I haven't gotten past the first the first chapter yet, but from what I've read this story has one of the most unique tones I've seen. The characters are both authentic and uncaricatured, which sets it apart from many other, flatter stories. I hope you don't mind my adding this to my community.
Keep Writing-Vis Verbi

This story cheered me up. It is great and I like Jamie and Mickey. I think that they are both authentic and I really love the ending. Well done! :)

I've really enjoyed this story. I read "Caramel Macchiato" or whatever it was called and couldn't really stand it, but this and "the way back" are really good. You've developed this really even, contemplative prose style. I quite like it. I think the characters here are kind of the same character's from "The Way Back", but the situation feels different enough that it's not just re-hashing the same ground.
I'm honestly surprised how few reviews you've gotten considering the high quality of your work. I can tell you that I'll be reading most of the recent stories you've got up.
PS Do I detect a very subtle reference to Xanadu? When Jamie is painting and then he says that when he gets interrupted he loses his inspiration, kind of like what happened to Coleridge when he was writing 'Kubla Khan', a poem which refences Xanadu? I hope I get reviewer points for having so much literary trivia in my brain.

I think the ending was just the beginning of the story. It started so well, characters were likable, ordinary people yet interesting. what missing is the climax. I could only wish there were more chapters. Anyhow, it was still a good read.

Aw, this story is so cute! I love how awkward Mickey and Jamie are with each other. It's absolutely adorable!

your writing causes the potential romance to literally radiate from the screen, love it 3

I love your story.
Glass blower was a great career to use for Jamie, I found this very original and gave your story direction.
I loved both your character and beautifully written.

I really enjoyed this!
From how beautifully realistic it was, to the fact that it just gave me this goofy grin on my face at the end-it was a great read.
Thank you for writing it. .

i loved this story.
| Zeekyboogydoog chapter 7 . 3/14/2011
I really love this story. A lot. It brightened my day. Thank you for posting it, and please continue! The story is just... I don't know, well written and compelling. And it has very likable characters, though not annoyingly unrealistically perfect characters. Anyway, I'm looking forward to more! Update when you can!
