Yeah I'll admit I've received some nice reviews on sites life FF.net and HPFF (where it holds an R rating) but when it comes down to it....when for over a year, you pour your heart and all your energies into an NC-17 story that is over 200,000 words and not hearing from anybody on whether it's good or bad, it's very confusing.
I know there are people out there reading it and it has 5 out of 5 stars but that has been the case since day 1 and I never really questioned it until a few weeks ago when I was skimming though it and found that it wasn't even complete.
I'm not talking bits and pieces that I should have entered before....I mean flat out not only chapters cut in half but also the chapters ending smack dab in the middle of a sentence. This really makes you question if anyone is really reading or if they're just glancing over the first chapter and going onto something else.....Afterall, why does it have the amount of stars it has when it's like that?
Well today I came home from work.....well after a stopoff at 'The Pub' and started going through my usual brief visits to different sites such as my flist, email, ect...when I went to my profile page. Suddenly as I started heading to the following list of sites I noticed.....the number of reviews had gone from 1 to 2. I immediately hit the back button and checked it out....To my surprise, it wasn't just one of those "OMG this fuckin rocks" which i do appreciate all the same type of reviews....it was actually a very nice paragraph that boosted my spirits so high I came very close to saying the dreaded 5 letter annoying word I dread you've probably heard it....it rhymes with we.
Now I'm not sure if it's just a side effect of ta-kill-ya shots I had in which I've never done before or if it's the idea that someone actually enjoys the story itself most likely a bit of both to make me post something like this for everyone to read. But Marielle.....if by chance you see this, all I can say it THANK YOU...you don't know how much your response means to me yes even without the alcohol content. I truly hope you enjoy the remainder of the story as much as you've enjoyed what you've read so far.
Thank you again, and as soon as I can get the next chapter to read how I'm envisioning it....it will be posted. Just be patient....for someone who is dyslectic and has a serious comprehension problem like myself....this can be a very trying situation.
