I’ve read Something Better like a million times, and I had read the original unfinished version of this story way back when. Went back to reread Something Better yet again and discovered you reuploaded and finished this one! Of course I had to binge read the whole thing, and I love it! Amazing job on your stories!

I love this story, and I love the way you write your characters, but it is so hard to stay on board with Emi.. I totally understand the feeling of being a foreigner, outcast, and just feeling misplaced, but she is using that as a crutch and excuse to not get better. And I get that the language is hard. Hell, all I know is English and I took French for years. But this feeling of "I can do it on my own, I'm independent" needs to go out the window the SECOND you are in unfamiliar territory. Even when you make your own decision to move, it can still feel like being dropped in a forest with no compass or map. And Aksel, lord he is seriously not helping the situation. Instead of getting butthurt and putting words into her mouth, LISTEN. She is telling you what she wants, she wants to be there with you, despite the hardships it is bringing her now, because she knows that she can get passed it. This is just another uphill battle that she can in fact climb. Stop trying to baby her and stop trying to be the hero. Pay attention. UGHH I love this story xD

Ahhh I know I never truly gave a review on this story but I want you to know how much I enjoyed reading this wonderful story. I read Something Better about a 1000x and now I have this story to read in full. I am so happy and thankful to you for sharing this story with us. The characters were all interesting and their dynamics really brought it together.
Emi and Askel are so cute together and knowing that their relationship isn’t perfect is what makes it perfect. So thank you once again. Can’t wait to read more of your works.

That was a wonderful ending - perfectly wrapping up enough for us to see where things are heading without making it feel like nothing happens after this point. I've really enjoyed all the growth that we've seen in these characters and how they've re-come together as something a little different. It's been a beautiful story - thanks for letting us readers be a part of it!

YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY. I'm so happy for them! And happy for me for finally getting to read this reunion. I'm glad that they both made allowances and signs that they were willing to be the ones to give more - it gives me hope that there's something different happening this time around. I'm excited to see how you tie up the loose ends!

Such a wholesome moment between the friends.
This story has been ongoing since I first followed it wayyyyyy back and I'm so glad you decided to continue that it is based on real life from your adorable lil author's notes,I guess it may have been difficult for you to write n relive some parts and I applaud you for doing so.
The pace of the story is well set and don't rush for anything cause most of your readers are experienced to your style of storytelling and it makes ot all the more intriguing to read.

I'm so so happy to see and read this chapter! I love the amount of research you put into people of different nationalities. Also love how Emi has changed and grown. It looks like she needed to step out on her own, have her own friends in order to quell her initial thoughts of a new city. Love that for her!
I was a little sad that Aksel wasn't in this chapter but I know you have plans and I'm really really excited to read the next chapters! I'm waiting to be surprised in the best way possible because that's what you usually do and make us fall in love with the story.
Lots of love and light!

Very cool chapter. Was glad to hear a bit more about the group and have that sense of melancholy when something special is coming to an "end "

After all these years my heart still flutters when I see a notification that you’ve updated! I like the growth we’ve seen from Emi in this chapter. Can’t wait for Askel to show up!

I've been following your story for a couple months now. Its so good! I've been waiting for this chapter- the chapter where they eventually get back together. I like that it is realistic, you show both Emi and Askel's hesitation but also longing for each other. I'll be sad when this story ends! Keep up the amazing work!
| Guest chapter 25 . 10/16/2020
Omg YES FINALLY! I have been waiting for this moment between the two of them!
Excited to see what’s next, been following this story for the longest time and so happy you’ve stuck with it and are continuing to write their story :)

Yes! There is so much demonstrated character growth in this chapter, and it just leaves me happy and beaming. I'm excited to see how Aksel and Emi's dinner goes! And no worries - the movement is coming. :)

Oh my god! What a cute chapter! An update from you is honestly so uplifting, esp during the pandemic! And the last scene :') i love how they're so unsure and tentative around each other still, but they're opening up gradually. Cant wait for the next update xoxo
