| winnable chapter 30 . 8/1
Wow, i read this all in a day! Great character development and plot, their original traits shine through as teenagers - so awesome! (although i wish Arnold wasn't that oblivious but then again, he wouldn't be Arnold anymore ) !
| AngelGirl569 chapter 30 . 3/30
Not a bad story. I didn't see the plot twist with Jake coming, that was a surprise. The only big problem with this story is that there are a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes. But overall a pretty good story

"he felt like throwing up when he saw two beefy boys on the water polo team all over each other"

THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING EVER! I can't believe it came out when I was young! It's crazy to think about. I know you got a lot of criticism for your interpretation of Helga, but I honestly can see her doing a beauty pageant for the money (she did become the It Girl to get free stuff, didn't she?) and transforming into this beautiful, perfect athlete. I personally think she was always destined for greatness later, and that she was going through her awkward phase with the pigtails and unibrow. The only thing I can't imagine is either Arnold or Helga drinking- HA! Anyway, LOVE the fic, thanks for a great story!

This was a beautifully written HA! piece-possibly the best I've read thus far. I love the developments, plot twists, characterizations, and everything else about this story, especially Arnold's sudden realization that he's been in love with Helga this whole and Helga's more slow-to-form understanding that she STILL loves the stupid Football Head. Lila was such a bitch, but you didn't bash her in a conventional way; you gave her a background and development that made it understanding and realistic for the reader to see her how you wrote her in this.
Awesome job! Definitely going onto my favorites list. :D

Took me two days to finish this and might I say I loved it.
You have this way of making a chapter seem entirely realistic, you never once took away from the characters daily lives for the scenes the viewers wanted most. I liked that
I loved your portrayal of Arnold, it flowed effectively. His feelings. The elements of love and how far people are willing to go in order to obtain that momentary happiness.
I liked how you allowed Helga to move past her feelings from Arnold, love can fade but to fall in love again is twice the break.
I actually loved your Jake. He was a character I wanted to know more about. Good usage of his character.
As for Lila I couldn't believe she was in love with Arnold, I just found her jealous of Helga much like Olga.
And Olga...dear goodness I wanted to beat the living day lights out of her. She is horrible! It worked well for the story but I didn't like the family resolution mostly because unfortunately it is very realistic of we profile Helga's family :/
All in all I liked this. Glad I read it.
Btw Samson is awesome.

I wanted to read this but I couldn't make it through all the sexist slut shaming.
