Well done. I love how simple their love seems to unfold , finally.
| Halle Alexis chapter 1 . 8/1/2012
I loved it! It's always fun to watch how Derek and Casey try to navigate their family and the various stages of their relationship.

THERE ARE NO HARRY POTTERS RATED R!
But, aside from that flaw, I enjoyed this very much.

I totally, totally loved this :)
“Hey,” Derek said, leaning over to Casey. “I dare you to say the dirtiest thing you can think of. Right now.”
“I’ll do it.”
“Don’t – “ He rested his chin on her shoulder, whispering into her ear. “Derek! Oh my God.”
I just loved that part, lol. I love how your write! Instant fave!

I get so happy when I discover a fic of yours that I haven't read before XD
You write Derek and Casey's banter so well, Meagan. The way I imagine they'll be a few years from now is exactly how you write them. You always manage to capture the essence of Derek's character without changing him.
" “It’s like – like I’m stuck inside a house all day, and I’m hideously bored and I’d like leave and get outside and do something, but every time I open the door, it starts to snow.” He shrugged. “And better to be inside, bored and dry, then outside, cold and…” alone. " It's a very fitting metaphor. And I fell in love with your Derek all over again.
And to top it off, all your other characters are... just perfect. Your older Marti? TOTALLY how she'd turn out. I loved it. All of it.
Ouf, sorry about the long comment XD

You are a beautiful writer. All your stories have this way of just pulling me in; the detail you use and the way you make sure they're in character is amazing! I love the way you can make me feel for both of them and the way you make their feelings known without being over the top about it. That's something I have to work on. :-) I can't wait to see what you have coming next!

Oh my goodness... that was the absolute best Derek/Casey fic I have ever read! Thank you soo much for sharing it :)
| iloveapplejuice chapter 1 . 3/9/2008
Awesome! I am so speechless! I love it! I totally love it.
Ha! This is one of the fics that just portrays how love really works. It's just a good example how people who truly love each other sometimes act like total idiots. They wait for a very long time to finally muster up enough courage to say things that were long hidden and repressed inside their hearts.
Yeah, talking from experience here! Hehe... though it didn't quite had the same ending as with Casey and Derek. I was rejected. Hehe... sad noh?
Well, congratulations on a job well done! I'd be looking forward to your new creations!
Praying for world peace,

Aw, so good! And so long, it took me a couple of sittings to get through. I loved it though! Great job!

This story had me cracking up over and over with the wit. Seriously, it is HILARIOUS. The situations are so undeniably true, the feelings are so undeniably real, and the Meg Cabot reference was totally fitting : ).
However, there was something in this story that I did not get:
' “Just…shut up, Derek,” Casey said tiredly.
“No,” he spat. “No, you don’t get to do that to me. Not with this.”
“It’s what you’ve been doing to me!”
“What do you expect me to do?” He glared at her venomously. “You never brought it up, so I never brought it up – and you’re all over the place anyway so how was I supposed to know where your head was at?”
“I – “ she shook her head, eyes brimming with tears. “I’m sorry, okay?”
“Don’t be sorry.” Defeat crept up on him and he slumped. “Casey, I…”
“What do we do?” she asked.
He stepped back, and then forward again, fighting to keep from touching her. “I – I don’t know.”
She looked down at her feet, wiping her face agitatedly. “Okay. Well – okay.” She raised her face and let out a short breath. “Um,” she started, then finished her sentence by lunging at him suddenly.'
Are they admitting in a way that they like each other? Do they figure it out without any words? Well, I'm guessing so, since they soon sleep with each other. I would just like a bit of clarification with this passage. It just seems really sudden. (I hope that that doesn't sound too harsh...)
I can't wait to see other things that you have written!
| Choice chapter 1 . 1/28/2008
Awesome; loved this! Derek and Casey are so cute together in this fic.
I laughed when Lizzie was going insane in the kitchen-I could totally see her doing something like that. )
Greay job, again!

- "Marti was a blazing handful at fifteen, taking after her big brother and trying her best to be as difficult as possible as much as possible – Derek couldn’t be prouder."
- "the Great Name Debate", especially Edwin's idea
- why Derek resents RJ at first (aww)
- “I transferred here, isn’t it great?” lol. I can totally picture Derek's face...and it's hiliarious!
- "It was every cliché that any two-bit Hollywood screenwriter could ever think of."
- "He wasn’t particularly happy that his life had turned into a Meg Cabot novel..." - good reference from anyone, GREAT reference coming from Derek! lol
- "So very far away." - that whole section is so sad
- “That’s the stop where I got molested by that homeless guy last Christmas.” - funny and yet awful...lol...I was propositioned (and I use that exact term, ironically) by a homeless guy once. **shudders** I understand her panic. lol.
- The Rigid Rules - oh so Casey and oh so funny
- stripper joke and music theory professor - LOL
- “Smart asses go to hell, you know."
(Man, this is going to be one LONG review, but I hope you don't mind. _)
- “I’m not laughing, I’m having a heart attack!” - He might not be laughing, but I sure am.
- “Trust me, it’s the only way to get him in the bathtub that doesn’t involve corporal punishment.”
- Two words: almond extract.
- “I’m just going to go say hello to an old family friend and maybe talk about my background in hitting things with a really huge stick.” He smirked. “If I can hit a hockey puck while balancing on two metal blades on frozen water, I sure as hell can aim for his face while standing still on solid ground.”
- Ah, the wrath of Marti...hilarious.
- Marti's Casey/Dimi comparison is a really nice touch. Cute.
- “What is this, a beauty pageant?” he whispered to Casey, seated beside him. “I feel like we should be bidding on them or something.” - I. Can't. Breathe! In chat-speak, ROFLMAO. ;)
- “That is none of your business,” Derek said. “And yes.”
- Derek's dare at graduation.
Absolutely amazing one-shot! It was all kinds of entertaining. _
