That's it? You're FINISHED? How! Why! What?
You can't just leave us hanging! There has to be more! Even if it is just fluff! Please! It's so... Words cannot describe the amazing! PLEASE!

First of all, my computer just made the strangest noise. It sounded like a sheep. I am alarmed. I don't know what to make of this situation.
Second of all, I liked how at the end you mentioned angry professions of love and Ross and Rachel. Just because I love Ross and Rachel more than words can say!
-get ready, because there's about to be an outpouring of extreme love for this story- ...
Third of all, this might be my favorite ending to one of your stories, ever. I love that she slapped him across the face as soon as he opened the door, I love that she yelled at him and that he just let her, I love that Addison quickly lost control of the situation by revealing that she wasn't going to wait 2 months and let him fall in love with someone else!
I love that he's such a good kisser that she was rendered weak in the knees and had to lean against the wall behind her! Alex strikes me as a good kisser. I feel like he'd be the best kisser out of all the guys on the show. If only I could actually experiment on this subject matter! I love that he bought the apartment with her in mind, because this is such an improvement from the guy who's afraid of playing catch and barbeques! I love that he's 34!
And I love how it ended! They didn't need any declarations of love just yet; it's perfect as is!
Well I have to go get ready now. My friends are all leaving me for college soon and I'm finally feeling better enough to actually see them before they go! I think I only have one more of yours to review and then I might be caught up! (correct me if I'm wrong, please!)

Another word of advice: don't try to crank out fics. You write much better than most Addex (the only fics I read) writers, but if you crank them out, they'll suffer in quality. It's hard to get a really good, ORIGINAL Addex idea, so spend your time and energy on one good one rather than spinning out a bunch of mediocre-to-lousy ones.
This one isn't totally original, but you develop it very well. Your premise is faulty-why would Alex's ex have to go to the hospital? Why not just give her his home address or meet her at a restaurant or something?-but you follow through with it. And what I really love is that you make the story quite titillating without any sex at all. You create sexual tension with nothing explicit, and for me, that's more intense than explicit sex.
You should plan on a day job after college, because it's tough to get published and get a career of fiction-writing going, but if you love to write, you need to keep at it, keep writing and rewriting and polishing and then try to find a way into publication.

I'm talking to you right now. About Satanic symbols. But I'm also trying to get this done too. This is interesting.
Anyways, let's move on to that thing that this whole reviewing process is really about.
Angry Addison is always such a joy to see. I like angry Addison. She's frightening. And cool. And sexy. AT THE SAME TIME. It takes talent.
And I always appreciate it when she slaps him. Because he SO deserves a slapping. He so does.
And she kind of secretly admits she's in love with him only not really. LOVE.
"Get off me! I'm trying to yell at you, and you're ruining it!" Best. Line. Ever. Mostly because that is SO how all of their fights would have gone down had they been given a freaking chance!
And he bought an appartment for them which is SO sweet. And then they put it to good use, which is so hot.
Remind me why they're not together on the show?
Because Shonda hates us? Oh, right.
Okay, I have to go. And you just called me a hyena. This is not my best review, but such is life.
I'm going to miss this story, but I comfort myself with the knowledge that it's end just means more time for you to write other stories! Yay!

I love this ff, and you better update it because i wanna see more of ADDEX, so pleasse update soon! and btw you have 40 reviews!
| Darling Pretty chapter 8 . 7/7/2010
Can we seriously pretend that no time has elapsed since you posted this? No? Dang. Okay, whatever.
I'm sad this is drawing to a close, but I totally get that. Believe me, I know the feeling.
I can't wait for this next (last) chapter, if only because Addison gets to tear into Alex and that's always appreciated over here.
On THIS chapter, I love that Addison got angry. Addison has the right to get angry. And I love that Addison's letting the angry run away with her (and straight towards Alex, of course). As Kate said, "I pity the fool who crosses Addison." It's very true. Once again, CAN'T WAIT.
Anyways, I know that I still owe you one or two reviews, and I promise you will get them very soon, but I can feel my review muscles getting cranky and I don't want to give you crappy reviews. So I will do the remaining ones either tonight or tomorrow. I really, really, really pinky promise. It will happen.

hi! i really like this fic and I'm not addex biggest fan... I think I've read all your stories but I always forget to review, I promise I'll work on that hehe...anyway please continue cause you're really good )
| kate811 chapter 8 . 6/23/2010
As I said in my last review for this story: getting reviews for like, 98% of Addex stories is like pulling teeth. And I'm really sad you're going to be wrapping this story up, but I understand because I had to do the same thing for View From Heaven (truth be told, I could play with Dead Izzie and Dead George ghosts/angels/whatever all day long. I loved their antics!)
I'm still hoping that since Izzie's gone for good, all her old fans will jump on the Addex bandwagon and root for them to end up together. Since they probably don't want Alex and Lexie to end up together either. Actually I really don't care who old Alex/Izzie fans root for, I just want more reviews.
Alright, now onto the chapter, which I, of course, loved. (I also apparently love commas) I chuckled at the title of the chapter, just because it reminded me of the hilariously awkward time Rachel made that music video for Run, Joey, Run on Glee.
I seriously loved how "take charge" Addie was in this chapter: how she cut Naomi off before Naomi could even really say anything and the whole "to yell at my boyfriend" thing ... oh boy. I pity the fool who crosses Addison. And of course I love any situation that involves Addison being scary to Meredith.
I'm so excited for the confrontation! Especially with Addison so riled up - Alex better watch out!
So once again, coming from the Queen of Absolutely No Room Whatsoever To Talk, update soon!
- Kate :)
