|Reviews for Well This Happened|
| Pricilla Grey chapter 1 . 11/1/2008
Awesome. Completely an utterly awesome. I love Brooke/Sam fics and this one was well written, smart, enjoyable and sexy- it has all the combinations of a perfect story.
Then you add in your spot-on characterisations and little lines and scenes that had me stuff a pillow to my mouth because I was afraid my laughing would wake my mum up and cause her to yell at me for reading fanfiction all night...that's not gonna be a fun situation for anyone. Namely me.
Because I've stayed up for bloody hours reading your wonderful Popular fanfiction, I might as well tell you my favourite parts:
One liners- some of the best lines I've read in a while:
"We should go," Sam said gravely. "She's like naked," she continued looking at Brooke quickly before turning away. "We shouldn't be here when she's almost naked,"
"You're dating a girl?…in a gay way?"
"she's just curious. Teens these days are curious, and it's even kind of trendy, what with Ally McBeal doing it and Jon Voight's daughter and all,"
"But does it make you skinnier? I'm just not into this Xena Warrior Princess shit, you know?"
"This is my greatest fantasy come true. Finally some girlfriends that actually look like the ones on T.V."
"But…Brooke's a cheerleader!" (God damn that's a good film!)
"Oh mah gawd," Mary Cherry exclaimed in a panicky voice. "She's rumplin' my Versace!" (possibly my favourite)
"You know, I was really becoming okay with the whole Sam is gay thing. I was being very mom of the new millennium about it. I bought an Alice Walker book!" Jane exclaimed excitedly.
"I think I could have come around to the whole Brooke is gay thing too. We do live in L.A. after all. But, this gay together ... this, this, this, being gay together. No. I'm sorry. I don't think it's too much to ask that they be gay with other people...other celibate people!"
"GIVE ME THE REMOTE YOU SOULLESS HARPY!"
I'd also like to specifically mention parts 35 through to 40, which were just genius. Oh, an all the scenes with Mary Cherry were incredible, both her and Nicole were completely spot on.
Is this the longest review in the world? Quite possibly.
I shall leave you with a request: please write more Popular femslash, I either promise to review every chapter and/or story, or I promise not to write you a review ever again. Your choice :)
I'm sorry, I've drunk a lot of coffee...
You rock my fanfiction reading socks.
Sincerely (an on a caffeine high),

Oh man. Two days to read. But I'm glad I did. Overall, very well written. There were only a few plural and homonym errors. Lovely story.

I cannot even begin to understand how this AMAZING work of fanfic could only gain 10 reviews. Honestly, your writing depicts the "Popular" universe so well that I'm slightly worried how I'll end up looking at the 2nd season of the show (of which I've only seen the first episode, thus far).
Having recently stumbled upon "Popular", I'd have to be blind not to notice the intense sexual tension that Brooke and Sam shared, and though I've watched a few fanvids on youtube, well.. those videos don't do the show justice. Because actually hearing the actresses banter back and forth in sexual play is where the lesbian subtext is so often found. And I think that you have most definitely captured the voices and have played up the lesbian subtext to a full blown volume that leaves me wanting *more*. Because, as I've discovered, Brooke and Sam are completely perfect for each other.. and through reading your 2(?) fanfics about them has only brought them the rightful attention that they deserve.
The way you get into their heads is almost unbelievable. It frightens me when a random writer on the internet can do a hell of a better job portraying characters than the writers who initially developed them and are getting *paid* for them. It's almost as if you know precisely what Sam is thinking in a given episode.. because her voice is shown so clearly and strongly (as is with Brooke, of course). You've added a very realistic touch to a show that borders the realm of superficial (but always pokes fun at itself).
I have to say that I haven't had the chance to look through all of you works, but I'll be sure to get right on that.
The point is, you did an AMAZINGLY stellar job at capturing the emotions of all of the characters and were able to incorporate them flawlessly into your own universe. And for that, I can only thank you for creating such a worthy story that is so very underrated. So... thanks D

Dude, you are the best fanfic writer EVER! Your stuff rocks. You totally have to write a sequal to this sequal. PLEASE!
| guardianrock chapter 1 . 11/26/2006
This even better than "A Thin Line". You're so awesome the are no words to descri for awesomeneess and I just lost all ability to write...
I can tell you have a great talent for writing, it's so easy to feel and belive these emotions the characters have, you can fell the love and the heart break and Merry Cherry's crazyness.
"I knew it, I knew it. You can't have that much hate without there being something underneath."
"Does that mean that you're actually secretly in love with Bio Glass?"
Send me into a laughing fit. You need to write more Popular fics, you're just too good!

I was just stumbling around and I found you...lucky me..very very lucky me.
Now I admit I havent read all of your works..just sampled a few...
You have been my guilty pleasure of the weekend..for which I thank you greatly...
I could review everything I read..but I would feel like an ass..so I will start with this one here..cause I think this is the most mature of what I have gone through...this one shows growth.
You have to be the best at banter I have come across in quite sometime...seriously good..top notch..good lord if you talk like you write...
Really ..the dialogue was natural..it had rhythm..the characters were showing depth..and you had a well developed plot..truely I was blown away by that much substance in so many works.
damn...if you dont write in some career way..someone had better kick you in the ass..chain you to a table..piss you off..bribe you..whatever it takes..because you have skills...and I am not just blowing smoke.
I do admit being in a good mood...blame caffine/new plushie Godzilla(he roars..for gods sake..how can that not be the glee inducing)..which may color my judgement..
I genuinely hope you continue...you do have good stories going...and I (selfishly) would like to see what you come up with next.
