As a Mary fan, I had to look at this.

I must say, I am quite impressed with this. I think at times you could have used a little more description, but still, what you gave us was enough to paint a picture, and I'm happy about that.

As Mary is a shy girl, I can see how it would be difficult for others not to know the real Mary. My only complaint is that her parents are the same. I know that can happen, but I don't think it makes sense for them not to know the real Mary. I'm sure she doesn't hide from them. They are her parents after all!

I like the idea of Mary x Tim/Trent, because it gives a bit of variety. However, I can't say if this was developed enough for me. It seemed the only time we get a bigger conversation with them is in the end of the story. So, I can't say for sure if it worked or not, since we only get a description of earlier events, and not actual scenes.

On a positive note, however, your spelling and grammar was pretty good! I didn't notice any problems there!

Again, your choice of pairing makes for nice variety. I'm sure you've noticed all of the Vaughn, Chase and Gill stories that have been popping up lately. There is hardly any variety here. Yet, even though this story was written a couple years ago, this one is unique with the pairing choice alone!

I did like the conversation in the end too. I like how Mary and Tim were able to tell each other how they really felt. I thought that was great, and written very well!

Keep up the good work!

Yes! A Tim x Mary fic! I love that couple and boy I never expect to find a fic about it. I like how you built up Mary's thoughts and feelings. How she want a fairy tale ending, and her being shy but need to be needed. It's really well thought out. The only complaint I has is that Tim chose her too suddenly. Maybe he should try going out with her first or something.

Your need to be needed was great! I never thought Doctor would be paired up so beautifully with someone other than Claire and Elli! 100 pointz! _

One downside though, no offense. Doctor ...showed up too suddenly. He had no real motive to go to Mother's Peak. Maybe you should've put a side-story like : At that time Doctor needed some herbs for the next day etc. You get me?

Will there be more chaps? Please make more, if not. Your writing is great and you really emphasized Mary's sadness.

It was amazing and I think you did a wonderful job with it, espicall describing Mary's emotions, I felt like I could understand her more clearly. I demand more stories lol!

Guess what? This story has made its way into a nifty little C2. Yup, it's that good.

Aw, poor wittle Mary. But she made her stand. I'm so proud of that librarian. (smiles) I actually said "Aw, poor Mary!" out loud while reading her mother's hurtful comment.

Dude...I have no words to describe how much I loved this. I really don't. You portrayed my fav Mineral Town girl with ease, and I applaud you.

I really don't think you could have chose a better title for this story. I love it, I wouldn't mind seeing more Mary-ness from you.

Good work cap'n!

Haha. I was so excited when I saw your name pop up in the new stories section XD I thought this was great... DEFINITELY romance angst potential. I find it purely infuriating that not even Mary's parents had faith in her...but it all just adds to the drama. Plus Mary's outburst was inexplicably hilarious XD I thought it would've made a much better drama if Tim had walked out on her but either way, I love it.
