this is perfect, I really think this is a stance that rachel should hace taken in the series, and just be herself without worrying about other people's opinions . I really enjoyed, it's a relly cool message :)

I totally get what you mean. I myself made a pact to compliment someone daily. And you know Oprah said someone called her pretty when she was a kid and that inspired her to do all the amazing things she's done.
I usually don't like Rachel very much, but I really enjoyed reading this. It was nice to see her in a non-diva mood. I also loved the idea of Blaine being bad at bowling.

I loved that story! I thought it was very sad because Rachel is very beautiful. You are a very talented writer. Keep writing :)

This story made me depressed because I just realized that I don't remember Rachel being called beautiful until senior year. Tears kind of sprung to my eyes during this one. It was interesting reading the Glee club's reaction to her little speech. Hopefully you continue writing, because I love your stories.

I LOVED that. I don't know what it was about it, but it seems to explain so much about Rachel. I just don't really know what to say about it. I do wonder what everyone was thinking when she said it. I think part of it is that I love Rachel/Kurt friendship fics.

I loved this!

I love this! I kinda wish that I could see it from the other kids' points of view.

I don't remember Finn voluntarily calling Rachel beautiful until the Born This Way episode where he broke her nose. It bothered me that she had to ask for a compliment in Furt, too. He only tells her she's beautiful to get her not to get the nose job. He definitely didn't volunteer anything when the doctor asked what his girlfriend looked like implying that Rachel wasn't pretty enough. I really liked this story and the way Blaine and Kurt made her feel.

That was really, really, really sweet )

This was so sweet, I hope somebody calls me beautiful one day.

This story is a very good reminder of the power of words and kindness to make an impact on some ones life. Thanks for reminding us. You are a very good writer.

(You notice that Noah is glaring at Finn and Finn is glaring at the wall, his hands curled into fists in his lap. Sam is clearing his throat uncomfortably, Mike rubbing the back of his neck. Brittany is smiling confusedly, her hand locked around Artie's. His other hand is tapping out fast tempos on the side of his wheelchair, nervously bouncing back and forth. Mercedes and Tina look guilty, Quinn and Lauren indifferent. Santana's the most surprising, she looks almost regretful.)
That's pretty, TheOceanBreathesSalty. Puck is basically doing what I would be doing if I was there. I think you have a very good handle on how to show the Glee cast. I also like the idea of this fic quite a bit. It fits with Rachel, and helps with her sympathetic angle that worked very well in the first season. I also like the hints of feelings from Puck and Santana there.
(Soo. I don't know if this will resonate with people the way it did with me, but I've been going through some stuff lately and I've been feeling kind of down. And today, I walked into class and got called beautiful. It made me feel warm. So, I made a pact. I'm going to tell someone their beautiful daily, so that other people can feel the way that I did. And then I wrote this.)
It definitely resonated with me…
If I actually had to think of a way to change it? I might have done another of the Glee Girls. Rachel seems slightly obvious for it. Still I think it worked VERY well with Rachel, it just might have been interesting to see it through Brittany or Santana’s point of view.
And in case you are wondering, yes, you are beautiful.

I really enjoyed this. I really love the Kurt/Rachel/Blaine friendship, and this really gave me a sort of vindicated feeling. My eyes actually went glassy when she said "no one has ever called me beautiful before." and the subsequent responses of her teammates. It was a very uplifting, but at the same time, very telling fic (about the way Rachel is actually treated.) Thank you and I hope that you were able to overcome your adversity as well :)

I really liked this story! I would love to a see a one-shot or story where you show the glee members thoughts to her saying she had never been called beautiful.

Wow, for a non-angsty story, I'm literally crying right now. I'd say it definitely had an impact on me. I usually don't cry without angst or character death.
