wow, this sounds so promising!
i love love love your writing so much!
really love how your Bella is so defined - aware but cautious, beautiful but guarded. it makes her so real, but at the same time kinda perfect.
and wow. artist edward. that's like the one fantasy edward stories don't cover enough. :) i can't wait to read more about him!
and their chemistry's just gonna bust some place open.
thanks for this beautiful story!

Very interesting- I look forward to see how this story unfolds. It doesn't seem like it's going to be smooth sailing.
How often to you plan to post this one?
BTW, I loved the banner! He's just so beautiful and swoon worthy!

I think I am going to really love this story. I am already so intrigued by Isabella, and they way that you introduced Edward from Bella's viewpoint blew my socks off :) I am in love! How can I not love an Ophelia too. Great pick on the painting - it is so beautiful but also as you said suffocating. Look forward to seeing what will happen. Thank you!

"I'm a lucky girl." You pull us in with that first line and paragraph. Bella seems as though she's been thrust into a world of privelege. She says she should be happy and grateful...but it's obvious she's not. The picture of the rich kids and how she tried to fit in with drugs and partying. She has Rose and Alice, and that's all. What kind of message does her mother give her? Renee trying to stay young so she doesn't lose her husband? Is there love there...at all?
"...When I first came to live here, I was put in one of the larger guest rooms, but it was too cavernous after the tiny room under the eaves that I had grown up in. So I asked to move to the little room. It was just the right size, and no one cared how I kept it." Was Bella always with her mother? Did she live in that house with her or her father?
"Our eyes meet for a moment and I feel like I know him. It feels like we know each other—like we've known each other for years. It's like that feeling I had all through class, that I could see him better than anyone else, wasn't just product of my sudden crush and my overactive imagination. He's not smiling. That warm, boyish expression that he was so free with all through class is nowhere to be seen. In fact, he almost looks angry. His face is frozen, his eyes wide and alert." I loved this! The spark that Bella is feeling for Edward...his look...he sees her. Ophelia; the tragic almost bride of Hamlet. The Millais painting is an interesting choice for Bella. Does she feel she has no choice and this life is sucking her under?
I have lots of questions...which I am sure you will answer...in time. Enjoyed.

I. Love. It. I think I saw a link for this on ADF...because I can't remember how I got here. I thought it was a one-shot though, and finally towards the end, I'm thinking...this is going to be the fastest lemon in FF history!
BUT! No! I have just stumbled on a REALLY GOOD NEW STORY! I have been looking for more WIPs so that my e-mail will fill up with updates more!
GREAT FIRST CHAPTER!

Lovely start. I like the art aspect mixed with our characters.
A hot teacher never hurts.
I haven't read Renee/Bella being rich much. I look forward to it.

Holy smokes! This is an amazing opening chapter. Spence, the scene, her home life, her ART TEACHER! Yeah. I'm so in. :)
I felt how despondent Bella felt...and I felt that jolt she felt when she first "experiences"edward...I want more, please!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving us something new and lovely to read! xoxox

I really enjoyed that! I love the idea of an unexplainable attraction. I also like the fact that Bella is a square peg in a round hole. She's taken quite a risk baring her sole like this. I did something similar while in school. This is fascinating to me. I am looking forward to the next chapter :)

Wow... loved it! Very interesting... the young mysterious art teacher and the upper crust people... desperate housewives meet 90210? LOL Can't wait to see where this goes.
| beckybrit chapter 1 . 11/10/2010
