sami1995 chapter 17 . 7/3/2014
This chapter made me tear up and my heart was beating like crazy as I kept on reading it!
I admire Violet; she's truly an impeccable main character. And I hope she puts her sister into place soon.
And I hope she gets the job. She deserves it. I really hope. She's an amazing character. Actually all your characters are great. And Paul's reaction was epic. It made me laugh out loud.

Oh, I can't wait to see what happens next.

The scene where Andrew saw Abigail: that was heartbreaking. Of course I want Andrew to end up with Violet, but I do hope he sees what he's missing. And gosh, Abigail! I have mixed reactions about her. And I think Andrew is more in awe of the whole idea of being with her (I feel) than actually knowing her well enough to start a relationship with her. He has a real connection with Violet. She's more down-to-earth and she has strength of character to put up with all this (and her family and her awful sister) and still stand strong.

Just look at the two girls. Abigail has issues (with the dead boyfriend) and so does Violet. But the latter is stronger. She could've left immediately after Andrew and Abigail saw each other. But she didn't. And she is leaving to become a journalist. I hope her dream comes true.

This story is so immensely powerful. I feel like I know these characters. I get so much emotion reading about them. It's amazingly written. I hope you publish this. I really hope you do so.

Your language is amazing too. I just wish this was a book and it's been written so that I don't have to wait (I'm terribly impatient when it comes to this story. Mainly because I love and admire this sooo much). I wish I can read it in one go. And the wedding's going to happen. I'm just hoping for more Violet and Andrew conversations.

I really hope they talk about it!

Brilliant, outstanding job (as usual). This is an immense, exciting joy to read! XD

Was he expecting her to speak up? Or was he hurt that she suddenly left without explanation? What exactly is he thinking? And most importantly, could that sister be his by a taxi or something... because she has no business being Vi's sister.

She is the most self-centered, cruel, thoughtless user. No wonder Vi is the way that she is.

Holy Jesus I had chills and shaking sad feels the entire time I was reading

I am so happy you updated. I really do hope that Andrew realises how much he cares for Violet and even though I knew he was going to go with Abigail, I really didn't want it to happen. I hope Violet get's the job at Times and can't wait to see Andrew's reaction to her leaving. Finally, I remember you saying a few chapters ago that Andrew's brother Chris was going to be in a few chapters and since this is from Violet's POV I couldn't but think that something might happen between them, since you hinted that him and Andrew were competitive when it comes to girls. If so it would be interesting to see Andrew's reaction to Violet being with another guy. Anyway, great chapter can't wait to read more, hopefully sooner than later.

I hope she gets the NY Times job! I hope Josephine gets humiliated somehow on public television, and I hope Vi finds someone who will make Andrew jealous - maybe his brother back from Harvard somehow? I hope Abigail is the one that tells Andrew she was there a few days ago and met Violet. Then he will figure out the reason she acted the way she did!

oh, how my heart breaks for Violet!

No, Andrew, noooooo! Why would you go with Abi and not stay with Vi? I'm so nervous and sad for Vi. Omg, why Andrew?! Update soon! :D

My goodness, that chapter. I feel as if I ran a marathon with the way my heart was beating frantically. Then that part where Andrew was looking at Violet when Abigail asked him to have coffee, my golly, it was like my breath was stuck in my windpipes. And when Andrew said yes, it was like I felt Violet's sadness was over me. It's amazing, how you, dear author, have completely made me feel as if I was in the story, living out the characters. Really, really amazing. The quality of your writing is absolutely high, and I implore you too keep it that way. Congratulations on making it on A Drop Of Romeo! I'll be awaiting the next chapter eagerly! :))

I loved several things about this chapter, like how anticlimactic the ending of it was haha, but mainly I love that it's here, it's arrived, and I got to read it; but please don't take longer than a month to update, pretty please? You can't leave it there! Second thing I loved was Paul's reaction 'cause I could just picture it exactly in my head, how you described the scene, and him cursing and the photographs hitting the floor like a pin dropping on an empty stage and the awkward silence and the awkward standing around and the awkward everything. I mean, I have to give credit to Andrew, I guess. At least he had the decency to acknowledge Violet there when Abigail asked for coffee and I could see why people might react and say he should've said no, but he-and we-really need to find out what in the world Abigail is doing HERE, ruining Violet's story lol. SHE ALREADY GOT HER ONE-SHOT, MAN. WHAT ELSE DOES SHE NEED?!

Ahem. Anyway, the third thing I loved, loved, loved is the line Violet kept repeating: "I'm not his Summer". Now, I've actually had the (dis)pleasure of having watched 365 Days of Summer a while back, and the truth is, I hated Summer in the end; couldn't stand her; couldn't stand the movie because of her. I haven't tried to watch it again because I just remember I hate her whenever I think about that movie. I didn't like her so much I gave away my DVD copy. So frankly, I'm freakin' glad Violet is not his Summer. Summer sucked. No, Violet's not Andrew's Summer. God, I hope not. To me, she's his Autumn. 3

Keep updating, yeah? Like, now? Thanks! :)

P.S. And I'm sorry if you like the movie and I just pretty much bashed it lol. For what it's worth, I LOVE YOUR STORY haha

Ugh I just want to punch Josephine in the face - nobody should be that bitchy to their TWIN of all people. I hope Vi will talk back to her one day soon!
Also WHY ANDREW?! I mean okay I get why...but STILL. Poor Vi! :(

They're adorable. Then, the ending -_- .
Sciencehey chapter 17 . 7/3/2014
Awww poor violet! But she shouldn't have let him go in the first place! I really hope Josephine gets called out on her stuff, sister or not I wouldn't deal with that! Can't wait until the next update!
