I am positively baffled - why on Earth doesn't this fic have more reviews? It's lovely. I love the interaction between Axel and Roxas - Axel being his wonderful, cocky, arrogant, charming self, and Roxas so not impressed. Ahaha. Anyways, I really love they way you write!

...also, the same thing almost happened to me. Almost. It was really close that the damn car didn't start going backwards... but it didn't, thank God. XD

Aw . . . That was unbelievably cute! I love it! I hope you write more, because this is gold.

And if everyone met their perfect stranger, no-one would be a stranger anymore. If that makes sense. XD Probably not. I'll leave fortune telling to the cookies, I guess. Anyway. Great story, and I'd love to read more about Car-Mechanic Axel and his . . . *Engines*? XD

GWAH Axel DOES tweak those ni-screws. Screws. Engines. ENGINES, I meant.

I don't meet any either. Dang lucky blondes who have car troubles going up hills. -sighs-

I like car-mechanic!Axel, and your fic. It's awesome.

So yes, there was blushing and squeeing of massive proportions when I noticed my penname in the dedication. :D Ooh, you're fabulous, dear. I'm touched, truly.

This was so cute, I loved it to death. I could've used hot, sweaty mechanic!Axel the day my alternater died and left me stranded on the side of the road. Why *don't* we ever get to meet perfect strangers? Life is unfair. *nod*

I loved Roxas's mom's little "Some guy, indeed." comment. Even she can tell. XD Their interactions were so cute! Axel's story about the tattoos was sort of bittersweet, but I couldn't help grinning when he was describing the 'burning pain' and his parents' faces. 3

And reading this is especially mind-blowing when I remember English isn't your first language. You always do so well in that regard. :) As for the title, I think it's actually pretty appropriate, on several levels. You have Roxas's losing battle with his car, and then his losing battle with being determined to not like Axel. It fits. I did notice one or two instances where you skipped a word or added an extra one. Did you have a beta for this? (These tend to be mistakes I make all the time until my sister draws my attention to them. XD)

In short, this is a cute, quirky first story that I think you have every right to be proud of (whether you're happy with the title or not) and I so look forward to seeing the evolution of your 'bigger babies.'
