|Reviews for Even Engineers Fall In Love|

I like the story, finally smart people are allowed to fall in love on fictionpress too! Only... A limerick has 5 lines not 4. You're missing a line - The first two lines should rhyme (1 2), then the next two (34) should rhyme then the last (5th) should rhyme with the first two.

Awwwww! That was the most adorable ending ever.
Now that I've gotten that out of the way, I just want to say that I absolutely love this story. I'm not an engineer myself (gov major, woot woot), but many of my close friends from college are. Come to think of it, my entire dating history consists almost solely of engineers. It's nice to see them getting a little love. ) Wonderful job.

So...I liked this. I liked that they didn't have this big, "Oh my darling, I love you so!" moment. It wouldn't have suited either character well. I also liked the fact that Mattie's stepmother actually recovered (I'm kind of sick of dead relative stories). The way she spoke of the situation was concise, like she didn't really want to talk about it. Again, I thought it matched her character (I kind of assume Mattie is a studious person who's not overly expressive of her emotions).
There are a couple of things I'm going to pick at though. First, the poem isn't a limerick. I thought it was a really cute poem and an excellent way to end the story. But a limerick is five lines with a rhyming structure of AABBA, so the first, second, and fifth lines rhyme, and the second and third lines rhyme (but they usually do not rhyme with lines one, two, and five). Not sure if I explained that correctly since I'm not at all into poetry, but it'll do.
Second, (this one is just me being a total jerk because I've been offended by engineering majors before) I didn't like the line "being an engineering student meant that I was surrounded by smart people." I guess I just get the feeling that you're saying anyone who isn't an engineering major is not smart. This is mainly just something I heard a lot at college. All the engineering kids were all haughty because their major was SO much harder than everyone else's. I don't deny that engineering is hard, and that I would never make it in engineering because I haven't taken a hardcore science class since I graduated high school. But there really isn't a reason to put anyone else's major down. At this point I'm just venting (sorry!). So, in an attempt to get back to the point: I'm not saying that you're putting down every student who's not an engineering major, but that is the impression I got from the way the sentence is worded.
Last, I found it hard to picture Mattie and Remy's almost kiss. It's not that you didn't describe it well; it's just that it was really awkward. I don't understand why Remy would place two fingers over Mattie's lips and then kiss his fingers. The action just seems so unnatural; I can't really imagine anyone doing it.
Other than these very minor issues (which aren't really issues...it's just me being nitpicky and a perfectionist), it's a super cute story. Good job!

Oh my gosh, that was TOO adorable! The last line basically sealed the deal :) Amazing one-shot!

Aww, this was a really cute story. I'd love to see it expanded but then again, it's perfect just the way it is :)
| S.E.Cates chapter 1 . 9/27/2011
I must admit the poem at the end made the whole story for me :)
It's really sweet and I love Remy.
You might want to look at changing up your sentence structure; it's a little choppy/repetitive at some points. But I wouldn't say that takes away from the story.
