|Reviews for The Ups and Downs Of Being Ann|
| LikeSynonymsForJoy chapter 19 . 6/10/2013
I read this story years ago and I may have reviewed it once, but I just read it through a second time and I think it deserves more and more praise.
I love Harvest Moon fanfiction. I seek it out all the time and I am so picky about what I read. Finding this absolute gem of a story is truly the high point of my fanfiction searches. It and its companion piece have always been my absolute favorites, among drabbles, 'two-shots,' multi-chapter, and standalone tales. The Ups and Downs of Being Ann has always stood out in my mind as an untouchably brilliant piece of work. It could almost be an original story with new characters and settings. You have made each and every character your own and given them life that nearly all fanfiction writers lack in their characters.
Thank you for the effort and brilliance put into this story. I know I will come back to read it again and again. I love your writing style and your characterization. I hope you're involved in writing as a profession or at least as a hobby, because you have such a gift! I would certainly scramble to read a book if you ever wrote one.
Good luck in your future writings!

I read this story a while back, but never commented.
-This is by far the best story i have read on here! Your detail to all the characters and everything going on really made it exciting to read. The pairing is great and the problems each characters faced made it difficult to stop reading.
-The stories I've read by you so far are all really amazing. Keep writing you're talented :)

Okay, I know this is like three years late or something, but I just want to drop a note that this is a wonderful story. Aww ... I really loved the ending although it was sort of unexpected. I thought Ann and Cliff would get together! (:
Great writing! So cute, thanks for writing this. _

wow, great story! a little bit too much Cliann for my tastes, and I also hated that Elli and Tim got married. But, with Jack intersted in Ann, what're you going to do besides make up a random OC, right? But, the Jann made me forget about it. SLIGHTLY.
I hope that you have more stories like this one!

Hey, I get to be your one-hundred fourtieth reviewer! Do I feel special or what?
Well, I'd actually been meaning to read this for a while...I'd see it and think, "This sounds like a good story-oh, wait, I don't have time to read it now." Sorry about that. ;
I have to tell you, it got better and better with each chapter. I think it's always that way, though...most people are like when they write. (Well, I know I am, anyway.)
So! Ann! Excellent portrayal of her right here. And I loved how she was friends with Mary-and you did indeed stick some Grary in there! Grary lovers unite! Haha. And Cliff x Nami...they're perfect together. Really, I love Cliann, but Clami (is that what it's called?) is lovely, too.
In all: good story, great job, and good luck with your other fics! Happy writing!

I saw the first chapter of the sequel to this story, and I haven't read it yet, but it looked like it could be interesting so I decided, eh, why not read the first story?
I then clicked over, saw 19 chapters, and got very discouraged.
An hour, a few cookies, and some stretch breaks later, I'm going to say it was well worth the effort of reading. I loved it. There were a few parts of the story that I felt could have been handled differently, but they were such small things that I can't even think of them now. Overall, it was very interesting and well written, and I think I may just have to read the sequel. :)
