I began reading this story when you first started it almost four years ago. Now this is my third read through of it in the past four years and it still remains one of my favorite stories of all time. It's ridiculously funny, incredibly sad, and profoundly poignant all wrapped up in one amazing story. I just wanted to say that you did a really amazing job with it and I hope you keep writing more stories.

So good. Sorry I can only say shallow and obvious stuff.

I like how Ashley would ask Spencer if it's okay to hang with another girl. It seems something you'd do when you want the person you like to stop you from hanging out with another person. And I don't think Spencer is stupid for not realizing what is her feeling for Ashley. It's normally typical to justify what you feel. I like how she's slowly noticing Ashley and seeing the 'future' with her. This bit made me smile so thanks :)

You should have asked her out too, Spencer :p And now I'm talking to an imaginary character ;p

Leaving a message for someone who died is the hardest thing to do, painful even... Fora and Noel, I'm sensing, will be together soon-ish. Harley is adorable hogging Ashley to himself. And Arthur, what a surprise him being the (sort of) bad guy. Though I understand that this is an AU and it's a twist I'm interested knowing about.

I think I've read this story before or at least the first part but I never realized I haven't left a single review...I'm so ashamed, I apologize. I like how Spencer observes people around her. The analogy of salmon to hs is good though I think it can also represent life in general. Funny that Paula thinks of Spencer as irresponsible and that Spencer hates responsibilities (sort of). Ashley's shyness is adorable and her crushing on Spencer is something to look forward. The other characters you made: Harley, Fora and Noel are funky imho. Pretty diverge personalities but I think it works that they're connected with Spencer. I like the old casts (Glen, Aiden, Kyla, Chelsea etc) but AU characters like in this story are more interesting. Thanks for writing once again and Godspeed.

Wow, so I just sat here and read this story all in one sitting and it's been probably like 6 or 7 hours and it's 3:42am. I absolutely, positively loved this story. Every single thing about it, I loved it. It was so super amazing. The character development, the progression of their feelings, the laughter, the tears, just everything felt so perfectly combined and it all meshed together like no other story I have ever read.
I loved both Ashley and Spencer in this story and I also loved your original characters. It was so different than the normal Spashley stories that I couldn't stop reading.
I even loved Paula in this. And Ashley's mom. Wow, just wow. I'm not even sure what else I could say because I'm pretty sure that anything I say would not do this story justice. If that makes any sense.
I'll just leave it at that.
P.S. Hands down one of the best stories I have ever read. If you were to publish this, I'd buy one hundred copies.
P.P.S. I'm gonna read all your complete stories now and I only hope that you'll come back and finish the one's that are still "in progress" :)

Okay so I just started the first chapter and felt the need to review(before I even got half way through it). Your other story that I read was great and I have to say, this one is starting out superb. I actually laughed out loud to the alien reference(yes I'm a total dork, whats it to ya'?). Anyways, back to the story!

Just read this story today and it was fantastic! Thanks for sharing your talents.

I am honestly confused about that last part there... I think it might be some "thats them in an alternate universe kind of thing and oh look Spence and Ash are still together"? Even if it snot, I like that explnation :]
And another comment, throughout the whole story I loved the "Picture this stuff". It was original and clever and I just enjoyed picturing things!
Overall though, this is by far one of the best Spashley stories I have read. It was sad, cute, funny, adorable, sometimes suspenseful, and everything in between. Youre a brilliant author without a doubt. You pay an amazing attention to detail and in describing those "hard to describe" (yes those quotes didn't really make sense because I said describing hard to describe... but you get my point
) situations. Especially the ones involving emotions and feelings. Like, I always knew exactly how Spencer was feeling. I understood her emotionally and what she was feeling and thinking and it was wonderful. Like the way you described how they kissed? And the emotions when they kissed? I would describe those scenes as like... colorful and deep and just so full of emotion.
I said it in the beginning, but I love this story because its real. Its real and the feelings that these characters feel are real. And I love that. Everything was just so believable like it could have ctually happened. The pace was good too. It wasn't too fast or too slow. Everything progrssed perfectly. Alright. I know I haven't done a very good job conveying my feelings correctly here... but I've tried.
Yeah. That was really long, and I'm not sure how much of it made sense.
Oh well. Conclusion: I love this story, your Spencer and Ashley, and you're a f*ing awesome writer.
