| The H-Experiment chapter 5 . 10/8/2016
it has taken me literally 4 years to find this fic. senior year of high school, i was into this huge gossip girl phase for some reason and i remember reading this beautiful, gorgeously written fic but for some stupid reason, i didn't save it, and i promptly forgot the name. every time i wanted to read it, i had no clue what to look up or where i would even begin to look, i'd just be stuck in this bottomless hell where i couldn't find your fic. finally, after four long years, i took a shot and typed in some random words i remembered from the summary and lo and behold, your fic came up on google (i swear i tried it before it did not work).
words could not describe how overjoyed i was. i wanted to cry and after reading the fic again, i did cry. this is probably my favorite piece of fiction. i loved your usage of present tense to really set a introspective tone to it and i loved the way you made blair grow as a person. it was very realistic and the message that you sent with this fic really kinda hit home for me. everyone is a work in progress and you need time and space to figure yourself out. it took a while for me to realize and for some time i let myself be defined by other people but im happy now and comfortable. i think that's why i love this fic so much but i relate to it in so many ways.
either way, i admire how you wrote blair and even though gg is a fandom i haven't touched in literally, four years, i know this fic will always be one i can always return too.

It's been years I read this story for the first time and I found a link in an old e-mail to a friend, and started reading, and I am so so sad and happy and this story is gorgeous. the way they grow up here, a way that Blair and Chuck come a full circle (so much better than the show itself) Thank yoy for reminding why I loved GG so much

I really liked this story. It seemed more realistic than some others I've read? I don't know if that's the right way to say it but I felt that you've addressed something here that's not always recognized. It's unhealthy for people to be a "we" instead of an "i". I still had to suspend my disbelief to fully absorb the story (Blair unknowingly dating the mysterious half sibling? really?), but this was a great self discovery piece. Good job!

I understand absolutely how a quality review can make an author's day. So, here goes my attempt.
I won't rave on meaninglessly about how much I loved it (even though I did) because those statements don't offer much substance. Personally, I, as an author, discount reviews such as those.
I admire the way you've crafted Blair. She seems more real than I have ever seen her before. As I read on all the way through your five chapters, I could see her before my eyes and actually watch a girl grow and mature and break and heal. It was amazing. You have a beautiful way of wording.
I am a CB fan all the way (although I also occasionally support BN in the fanficiton world) so your ending pleased me. This story reminds me of a book called 'By the Time You Read This'. It's about a girl who's been in love with the same boy ever since she was a child, but it takes her twenty years, many boyfriends and multiple mistakes to realize her affection.
This CB story really touched me because it was so believeable. It had such a lovely, subtle, undemanding quality to it. I wish I could write like you.
I must also commend you on the length of your chapters. This is something I am atrocious at. I can't seen to make my oneshots last longer than five pages.
I hope my comments have added a little something to your day. I thoroughly enjoyed All You Ever Wanted. Thank you so much for sharing it with me.
Best wishes for the future!
Calista (or quibbler149 as my PenName suggests).

i love your style of writing! this story is perfect
| mona chapter 5 . 7/25/2009
Amazing! Great job. Perhaps you can also write this story from Chuck's POV?

This was wonderful! I cried and laughed and cheered; it was honestly stunning. Thank you so much for writing it!
| abelard chapter 5 . 6/23/2009
Wow. This story is so powerful and so well-written and really deeply moving. I admit I was holding my breath the whole way through to see if C&B would end up together, and they did so that makes me totally happy!

This is amazing. I'm totally speechless. This is seriously so incredible and beautiful and just totally captures all that reinventing yourself bullshit you go through at college and you never reach the finish line, you're always a WIP but no one ever bothers telling you that. This Blair is so incredibly constructed and wonderful and heart-wrenching. And the reunion with Chuck at the end? YES!
