(#) infinite-oddity 2008-07-28 04:32:34 PMThis is the end of that story, and the beginning of a new one. Except the next part of the story is my staring at my computer screen, eyes filled to the brim in pure awe.
Paige, your writing style and amazing way with words is flawless. I honestly don't know what to say. Words, for once, escape me. And you know me, possibly better than I know myself, and I am never ever speechless.
The way you ended the story, as sad as I am to bid it farewell, was magnificent. The way you intricately weaved the beginning and end of it, pure fantasy. I enjoyed every minute of it.
And in regards to your Authors Note:
You are very welcome. I would gladly read anything you write, and help to improve it. I am so used to this story, somehow able to relate to these characters.. Paige, you don't need to thank me. I need to thank you for writing such amazing stories.
This has made my Summer fantastic.
Don't ever think that you can't write or whatever BS, because regard this as proof that you can so well. And there will always be an audience.
/I love you so much Paige.
Thanks for this story. I can't wait to read the next thing you genius mind comes up with./
Author's responseElle, you have no idea how glad I am to hear that you enjoyed this chapter. When I finished it, I was starting to grow paranoid that it wasn't as great as I hoped it would be. But, now I am very content. :]
I must admit, I do like my writing style. I love to write words, adjectives, and metaphors so much. And it's great to hear that people enjoy it as well. :]
And I'm glad you liked the connection between the beginning and ending. When I first thought of that, I thought it was a swell idea. I'm happy to hear someone agrees. :]
And yes, yes. I do need to thank you. You have saved my ass so many times. -flash backs to when my computer spazzed and I lost my work, but I sent it to you via IM, so then you sent it back and I was relieved-
And when you helped me overcome that horrid writer's block. You have helped me out, so much and I must thank you. :]
This fic, as well, has kept me sane during the Summer. Lord knows that I had nothing else to do. This story saved me from my lack of excitement and boring summer.
Thank you so much for this final review. I love you. :]
- Oh My Gawd
I loved the ending
so much different than
any of the other
fanfics i've EVER read
There wasn't a heart warming kiss
or a fairy tale happily ever after
But I love it!!
You're truly an ahmazing writer
I am certainly glad you liked the ending and thought it was different from anything you've ever read. Well, I hope that is a good thing.
Well, it might've not been a fairytale happily ever after.
But, I think it was a rather happy ending, if I must say so myself.
Helen and Ryan had reunited in the rain.
Joining together, just like they had in the first chapter. [That's what I was trying to portray though]
Well, I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Thank you so much for your consistent reviews. They have certainly made my days. :]
Thank you for the review! :]

Oh my gosh. That was beautiful.
The whole time I was reading about Ryan wanting to be the Helen of the girl under the tree, my heart was close to breaking because I didn't want Ryan with anyone that wasn't Helen. I'm so glad it was.
I can honestly say that I truly loved every bit of this story. It was amazing to read once, and will be equally amazing should I choose to read it again.
This is easily one of my favorites. I love how it's so well written and realistic. Ever aspect of it just meshes together and works perfectly.
I applaud this. It's definitely something you should be very proud of.
How many times did I repeat myself? Haha.
Author's responseYou, my dear, have to be one of my all time favorite reviewers. I swear to God, everytime I see that you review, I smile and squeal a little bit. ^_^
Ah yes, Ryan and Helen had to end up together. They are just too perfect for words. :]
You are so absolutely wonderful. I'm glad you've enjoyed this story and have shown it through your consistent reviews. You rock. :]
Thank you for the review. :]
- While reading this I was listening to the radio and the song "Nine in the Afternoon" played and it freaked me out but it got weirder because I finished reading it and said aloud 'aww man it ended!' then "It ends tonight" by the all american rejects played. I turned my radio off after that.
GREAT ENDING! Never stop writing because you have a gift!
Author's responseWoah! That is weird!
And thank you so much.
For all your reviews and support throughout reading my story. Your reviews make me smile. :]
(#) xoconverse 2008-07-29 12:02:09 PMOh my god. Amazing. That was just amazing.
I love how Ryan saved Helen just like Helen did for Ryan.
This is my favorite story. I loved it so much. You did an absolutley fantastic job. And how Ryan just put his hand out and Helen took it, made me cry.
You did an amazing job, thank you for writing this :]
I'm super glad you enjoyed the ending.
To be honest, for the past few days I've been thinking that this last chapter sucks [despite what my friends say]
ACK! I need more confidence. =/
You, are amazing and I am so happy that I have you as a reviewer. Everytime I saw your name under the new review emails, I get super excited because your reviews are so uber sweet. :]
Thank you for reading and reviewing! :]
(#) iluvsmiliez 2008-07-29 05:04:55 PMI lovedddd it! :]
This made my day...I mean night! ;]]
I loved the ending....I agree with Infinite-oddity..."This is the end of that story, and the beginning of a new one."
I was in total AWE! :]]
Author's responseEh, everyone says they liked the ending, but I'm kind of still unsure about it.
I keep on thinking that I could've done better, that readers will be disappointed with the ending, that it isn't as good as they [or me] hoped it would be. I don't know. Maybe this is just my insecurites talking. Nonetheless, I'm still a little discontent with how I ended things.
Better luck next time, I guess.
Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed the story and chapter. It makes me really happy to hear that. Than k you for the review. :]
- i loved every bit of that story =)
thankyou for writing it.
that was SUCH a good ending...
you are awesome!!!
please write a sequel, if you don't then, please write something new =)
Author's responseAwhe. You are so incredibly sweet. :]
Thank you for all your nice and supportive reviews throughout this story. It really means a lot to me that you've enjoyed each and every chapter. I'm so glad you did. :]
Thank you oh-so much.
Whatever I write next, I hope to hear from you. :]
(#) prissynblack 2008-07-30 02:45:34 AMThis can be over ;_;.
Ok I've never actually reviewed but I've been reading this story i think since your 8th chapter becuz I'd always seen it but i finally took the time to read it and i absolutly loved it.
Your writing is amazing. The characters the plot, everything was fucking genuis. You are like a really good writer and i actually told a freind about how good you are.
um...i loved loved loved this story so much. gosh, idk what to say becuz everything just came together so nicely and i cant see why in the world you could ever be self consicous of your writings. Its as if it comes easy to you becuz everything flows togethers the characters are real.
The whole significance thing was really cool and i dont know how to describe it but i really liked it and understood it.
I hope hope hope you do a sequel. I defiantly favorited this story:)
and if you dont do a sequel im just excited for your next story beucz i'll defiantly be reading it=]
Well, I'm certainly happy that you've been following along with this story and had a chance to review. What I'm even more happy about is that you enjoyed it so much. :]
This story, I must admit, has to be my favorite so far. My characters and plot took a more realistic leap into what I usually write. I think I wove together their emotions and personalities nicely. :]
You even told a friend about me? Wow. I'm glad you think I'm actually that good to tell someone about. That really makes me happy. :]
Eh, I'm self-conscious over just about anything I do. But, I don't know if it comees easy for me. I guess you could say, it just comes to me. The words, the adjectives, the metaphors, it's like they are already hiding beneath my fingertips, waiting to be typed out on my keyboard.
It's weird and I probably sound like an idiot.
A sequel? Gah, I'm so unsure about one. I keep on thinking it won't be as good as this one, that it'll be worse. This was a rather heavy fic and I don't know if I can do one just as emotional. Alas, I'll always be writing, so you don't have to worry about that. :]
Favorited? Really? YAY! -HUGS-
Thank you for the review!

(#) Life_is_42 2008-08-05 06:01:47 PMHe didn't know who she was. He had no clue who this girl that he was watching was as she sat alone in the rain. But, an unusual deja vu submerged into his silenced thoughts as he remembered being that person, with the cynical view of the world and the pain much too hurtful to handle.
I LOVE how you bring things full circle/paralleled. (haha. Wewt for comparing lines to a circle?)
But suddenly, as Ryan reached the girl, he lost his breath between his gasping astonishment.
"Helen?" Ryan asked, looking down to the soaked girl as she raised her head and gave him the most saddest look he has ever seen. There wasn't anger or annoyance. Just the pure sorrow that had been hiding in her heart for so long.
Some how I FELT it would be Helen….i’m SO happy it is….reads on
And there you go. Nods Ryan’s finally going to do what Helen would do.
You know I remember nearish to the beginning of this, me thinking “Helen can’t be like this all the time” and…when she’s not the warmth provider…..well….theres always a ryan now!
I’m so SAD that this was the last chapter, because it means no more updates, however I am THRILLED to have been able to follow this story along, chapter by chapter, and to finally see it conclude.
I LOVE the ending!!!! LOVE IT! Dances happily
I can’t wait to read more from you too!!
And you are so sweet to give me a shout out, despite my lack of internet connectivity/reviews (I hope I’ve made up for that?). I LOVE YOU!!!! You’re like one of my favorite people ever! dances more
Author's responseAh, yes. It was Helen. I mean, it had to be! They NEED to be together. They just do. :]
And you are so certianly welcome for the shout out. You totally deserve it. You have to be like, my favorite reviewer/person of all time. You have SO made up for your lack of internet connection with these heart-warming reviews. You rock. Gahh!
Thank you for this AMAZINGLYFANTASTICMARVELOUSAWESOMETERRIFIC review. :]
