This story made me truly sob. I think I relate to it a lot. So I'm in year eight of high school (I'm from Australia) and I've just been having trouble making great friendships like that. When I was in primary school I had amazing friends who didn't judge me at all and I loved them all so much. But then we left primary school (you graduate from primary school in year six. I was 12) and I went to a different school than my friends. I used to catch up with them all the time in year seven but now I hardly see them anymore. In year seven I was put in a really bad class and at our school you stay in your one class for every subject. And my class was so bad. I didn't have any friends in my class at all for the whole year. I started getting panick attacks and anxiety. That got even worse when I got sick with this thing called Potts. I'm not entirely sure of all the scientific things about it but I get really disy and stuff (it's to do with my blood circulation). It basically feels like car sickness except your not in a car. So I stayed home sick for a majority of term three. Then I got panick attacks more often about how I don't have any friends and how every one is probably going to judge me. I made friends with one of my mums family friends daughter. She's pretty cool. For the first six months I was friends with her I was pretty shy. She pretty much just talked most of the time. Then I got a bit more comfortable with her. I started making friends with her friends though i have this annoying thing where I make friends but I don't really hang on to them. I just let them drift away a bit. This has been happening more recently now. I have all of these almost friends. Anyway this year my really good friend came out as transgender. I didn't really know what to think when he told me. So I just kind of went oh cool and we just continued on as normal. But them a couple of days later I'm sitting in the library with him and we're sitting with some of his friends and I just realised that I was the only girl there and it made feel really weird. There's just so much change going on in my life and he was my only really good friend. He still is my only really good friend. So much is just changing so quickly. Anyway I have these three almost friends in my class. I like them it's just one of them really loud and she speaks her opinion sooo loudly and I feel like she judges everyone including me. I'm a very quiet person. I could say I'm an introvert. Though I don't like saying those things because everyone is both. I like my other two almost friends when the loud one isnt there. And so now my panick attacks have gotten worse because my lack of friends makes me read more so I can escape into other people's brains and see the world as someone else sees it. And that means that I don't do my homework which means that I get even more panick attacks which means that I read more and it's a never ending cycle and I don't know what to do. So that's basically my life story. I don't know why I just said all that. I just need to get it out of me and this seems like as good a place as any to do it. No one will probs ever read this but oh well. Loved this story a lot. Made me cry. Lots of love from Holly

Oh my gods, I love this so much! You honestly deserve more reviews for this amazing one-shot. I really love how you capture their feelings, so thanks for that. This was more realistic than any other fanfic that I've read, which I enjoyed very much. I have to admit that some parts brought tears to my eyes, either from sadness, or the fluffy moments. You are a very great author! And sorry if this was 2 years ago.

By far the best friends into lovers one shot I have ever read. I don't exactly know how to put it into words, but u have such a way of writing that the words and the story really resonated with me. That's amazing; you're really talented, that's for sure. This had me crying in places for no real reason; the emotions u made us feel through the characters were just so overwhelming. This is fucking brilliant. Fucking. Brilliant. Love u, love ur work, love ur skill. A simple good job doesn't even cover it.

Cuteness overload. I literally—not figuratively—cannot eloquently describe my feelings for this story.
And now, a few excerpts.
"Friend!" Percy shouts...
Don't you mean, future GF? Psh...
"Where we're, like, together," he continues. "Not sexually. Not usually, anyways."
Not usually? Well then, PERCY *wink wink* I guess that it's only normal.
"Eight months later, her mother publishes a book, and it's based on a true story."
BUT WHAT ABOUT ANNABETH SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO PUBLISH HER OWN STORY MAYBE OKAY FINE.
It was absolutely wonderful. Definitely favorited.
