That was cute. :) The ending made me sad though! Well, the flashback!

Oh, I love you! This story was seventeen different kinds of fantastic and I can't even begin to tell you how tickled I was reading it all from start to finish. Honestly, my smile never left this face the entire time.
What can I say, really? It's genius lies in its simplicity. You've written the most random little bit of nothing in the lives of Glinda and Elphaba that is more poignant, humorous, and heartfelt than any number of the Wicked stories I have previously read. There is so much tragedy in the lives of all these characters, and it is *always* a welcome refreshment to find something that exists purely for the sake of "fun" and merriment. (Well, something that doesn't usually involve a lot of shmex, of course.)
It's just a tiny moment- a moment where Glinda and Elphaba just beautifully connected. I love it. I adore it! And the fantasmic addition of Crope and Tibbett just made it that much more charming. GAH.
It's a pity you're no longer writing. It pains me when awesome writers abandon the poor, starving masses of ffn. Would a plate of cookies persuade you to pick up the ol' metaphorical pen again? D
Ah well. In any case, welcome to my favorites list.

Aww, adorable. The beginning made me smile, and the tentative friendship between the girls throughout the rest was great. And the ending was perfect.

Aw, this is just spectacular. Really cute and wonderful. I like Crope and Tibbett, they're so awesome in their Crope-and-Tibbett-ness. I love it.

I've read all your stories just now- and I think you're amazing.
I usually throw words around, but, I state the obvious. you. are. amazing.

This was the cutest Wicked fic i've ever read. Okay, the only Wicked fic i have ver read, but that's only coz i haven't finished reading the novel, yet.
I'm adding this to my favourites. From how much i have read of the book, Elphie and Glinda were so in character in this that it was uncanny.
I loved it.

Aw, that's...sad. I really enjoyed the "day in the life" aspect, but when I saw the last, flash-forward line (which I nearly missed!), that bittersweet, almost tragic closer made me love the piece even more. Very real, very nice, and very subtle. Kudos.

This makes me quietly happy. It's not exactly a squeeable fic, or a deliciously depressing fic, but it's so...ordinary-and I mean that in the best way-and so believeable and just so normal that it works spectacularly.
That probably makes no sense at all.
It's so well-written, and so understated that it's almost like watching a snippet of Elphaba, Glinda, Crope and Tibbett's lives play out in front of you. Nothing flashy, nothing especially dramatic, just...life. Which is not something one generally finds in this category. Wicked lends itself more to melodrama than a simple day in the life. So major kudos to you for doing it at all, and even more so for pulling it off so, so well.
Since you haven't put the "Complete" label on this, I shall live in hope that it will be updated. Onto favorites and story alert it goes!

This is very good, I'm intruiged!
Is this story going to be Gelphie, I wonder?
| MimiChicaSVU 7/29/06 . chapter 1
haha, i loved it. i can completely see galinda not being able to run three laps without nearly dying. and the line at the end completely pulled the whole thing together for me. nice job!
i just have one thing...at that point in the story, wasn't it galinda, not glinda? i may be wrong, but i'm pretty sure it is.
