|Reviews for Body Image|
| rose.waldron.9 chapter 15 . 5/4
Hello, I know you wrote this awhile back but I just HAD to review. I write WWE slash stories so I usually never read het but I stumbled on this and it is beyond amazing. I am a huge Cena fan and also 295 pounds so I could really relate to Parker. I have struggled with body issues my entire life as has my lovely BBW fiance JadeRose. We read this story out loud together, one chapter per night. We laughed, we cried...it touched us deeply. Now I find myself smiling when I look in the mirror and telling myself I am the body beautiful. I realize it is only a work of fiction but it changed my life in a small way. It seems I've always felt like Parker with the beautiful skinny friends like Avery who got all the guys. (I'm bisexual) Made me grin that Randy was a boob man since he is my second fav wrestler although in real life sadly he's with the barbie like Kim. Anyway, totally amazing job and I loved every word.

Thank you very much for making me cry during the last three paragraphs of Chapter 13. This is my fifth or sixth time reading through the story (I kind of love it), and this chapter has brought me to tears every time. I've always been the odd one out, the plain one, and the undesirable one. I never wore makeup or followed fashion trends, and so I never got noticed. I preferred to be comfortable and didn't particularly care whether or not I was the most beautiful girl in the room, and I paid the price for it by being a last resort and, in one case, a dare. I've never had someone look at me like the way Randy looks at Parker. I don't know what it was in particular, but something in the last two paragraphs touched that part of me that just wants to be beautiful in someone else's eyes, and I... may or may not have had a mini-breakdown. I'm kind of embarrassed now.
Thank you for writing such an amazing story that evokes so many powerful emotions, and at the same time provides some kind of catharsis for people like me who never felt like they had a voice. Parker's bold attitude and willingness to rock the boat in her own defense are completely the opposite of me (I tend to try and avoid upsetting anyone or causing problems, even if I really should stick up for myself), and it felt really good to read her. I definitely hope to see more from you. I saw that there was a sequel- I'm definitely headed there next!

Holy crap, this chapter was freakin' amazing! Kudos to you for writing such a lengthy scene (oh, please pardon the pun) without it being completely smutty and gross. You're a really good writer!

I just found this story and PHENOMENAL doesn't do it justice. You just described me because I see me in Parker. Thank you for this story and I'll definitely be reading more.

I'm not going to lie, I've been skirting around this story for awhile. I wanted to read it, but I was afraid what I would encounter once I was into it. I think the only reason I finally did read it was because it had so many favorites. A depressing story would not have over 200 favs. I'm so glad that I finally sat down and read this!
I think every girl should have to read this story because every single one of us has a flaw that we are very self-conscious about. This story follows the journey of a woman who enbraced her flaws and loved herself, even when society told her that she should hate what she sees in the mirror. You should think about adapting and publishing this story. It has the power to change so many women's lives. Thank you so much for writing this so honestly and thoughtfully!

You know I think I love you. I really do. Your story was awesome. We are too hard on ourselves. We only have one life to live and we are so self-conscious and degrading about ourselves that we miss out on the good stuff in our lives. We bow to society because we are afraid to separate from the heard and do our on thing. I love this story and I love you! Your fabulous!

If I can judge by the way you write, I'd say you are a beautiful person. For one, you made me smile so many times while reading this it's unbelievable. I could relate to the character, you made her so real and true. The story was amazing. I wanna write all this awesome thoughts and feelings I'm having concerning this story, but I just can't write them! (So frustrating ;d) Overall I just wanted you to know that I think you are a magnificent writer, and you're beautiful! Thank you for this!
