|Reviews for Summer of '88|

I loved this... absolutely loved it. I just read a one shot in the Tattward contest that made me cry, and this was a freaking perfect thing to read after it because it made me smile and laugh out loud the entire time. And oh... it took me back. I remember a lot of the references... Madonna with the jelly bracelets, the leg warmers, the scene from Flashdance where she takes her bra off while her sweatshirt is still on... ah, memories. I graduated in 1989... so I can related.
Oh, and I freaking loved this take on a canon quote: Three things were clear to me from this point on. One, Bella Swan was in fact perfect in every way. Two, I needed to see her sans clothing again. And Three, I was in love with her.
Another fact that is obvious that I have always known is that I am awesome. You should remember that. Forever.
Yes, Edward. I will remember that. Forever. And you - nobloodnofoul - I'm putting you on author alert because you're awesome, too!

This story was so damn funny! I love 1980's Edward - brings back some memories (well, minus the Edward unfortunately). Anyway, great oneshot!

This short story was awesome! Really, I laugh so much of Edward, I had to read it again. Really really nice. I have to say when he found that bathroom door open in the morning, everyday on saturday, I thought that it would be Alice. Not that he would be turn on by his sister, NO WAY, but more as he thought it was Bella but it was Alice. It would be funny as hell. I dont know if you plan on writing more about this story with this Edward and his obsession with Bella, but i would really like some more. Not a full story, just situations, i dont know...how about when he went back to college, or when they got merried. Ok, Ill stop pushing you now. Again, loved the story!

So, I'm reviewing as I'm reading, because I want to be able to talk about stuff without forgetting. I already love the exposition of your one-shot. The fact that it's EPOV already puts you in major favor with me. And the second line just about killed me with amusement. It's true. I think it's safe to say a majority of women think that when they think "Edward Cullen". Maybe even a few men.
And I find your writing style very effective for getting laughs. M. I'd be insulted by the fact that Edward called the audience whores, but it's Edward Cullen. I'm also sure women would love to be his whore.
I just about died when I read "'Can I see that again?'"
Hilarious that she took precautions and actually changed in the bathroom after the shower. Poor Edward wasn't able to get a glimpse of her naked...funny how with his pervy behavior, he can still do no wrong in my book.
And boy, he's not gracious at all about seeing her naked again, really. Hahaha. Taking all the towels. Clever woman, running to get her own towel. And then him begging! That's just too hilarious for words.
I love that in this fic, he's declared Alice as the Anti-Christ, and pawns off never getting to know Bella naked earlier on Alice's evilness.
"Then she would strip down and we could have naked sex." Oh goodness, he's so deluded. And he's right. He is pretty awesome.
But I did feel bad for him when Bella rejected him for the umpteenth time and he went to have some alone time with himself.
Oh goodness, your story is really killing me. It's 2 a.m. now and I'm currently trying to soothe the ache in my ribs because I've laughed so hard reading Edward's little monologue to Bella about her being perfect, it hurts. And then afterward, when he just backed away because he was paranoid about getting punished for her crying...priceless!
Your conversational style is just so amazing. And hilarious. I have one more thing to say about your one-shot, and to quote you: "'Ung okay, thank you.'"
You totally got my vote, and this is going to my faves. Thanks for sharing this fuckawesome one-shot with us.

| strawdogt chapter 1 . 7/23/2009
Okay, honestly? This was hilariously written. Well done :)

Merciful high heavens, that was the funniest thing I have read in eons! How did you manage to turn Edward into a cross between Jim from American Pie and the guys in Porky's and still make him sexy? I could quote lines that made me laugh all day but unfortunately I don't' have that kind of time. Let's just say you did a fantastic job and I don't know where your crazy little mind came up with it all.
Thanks for sharing your writing and best of luck in the contest. Now - get your butt back to the computer and write me some more about Fightward. I miss him so much.

Your version of Edward Cullen reminds me so much of Jace Wayland from the Mortal Instruments Series (City of Bones).
They're both pretty much self-loving, sexy, conceited idiots and I love both of them!
Great story, I really love it, and you've got my vote:)

This was so f*ing hilarious... I love how concieted and delusional The Edward Cullen is. Hot and funny, my favorite so far. You should consider writing a companion piece in BPOV, I would love to read that and I will put you on my authors alert in hopes that you will! Great Job!

An absolutely great one shot. Funniest thing I've ever read. I wouldn't mind reading more of 80s Edward.
| Snix1974 chapter 1 . 7/21/2009
Hey I LIKED this, *biting lip and grinning from ear to ear*.
I'm thrilled you made him a bit older 'cause there's nothing worse than enjoying 'time' with The Cullen Himself and he's only 17, that doesn't make me feel too good at all! Bahaha
Thanks for sharing all your awesomeness!
