This was a rollicking ride of a fic. Loved it! I’ve read it a couple of times and thought I’d left you a note. But I haven’t, so…
Brilliant! The set up is so well handled and an excellent excuse to have the elevator Fic as the centre for their interactions. That small space that condensed time and crystallised emotions. Genius. Loved how intense it all was, how Miranda’s actions aren’t always clear to Andy until the end, when she reveals that she’d fallen for Andy as well. How Andy can’t quite grasp the depth of Miranda’s feelings for her until the end, and Miranda’s own behaviour follows the roller coaster of Andy’s emotions too. Intense and captivating and delicious to read. Thanks for sharing it with us.

This was 18 chapters of complete, delicious, foreplay. Holy f*ck. Amazing. Thank you for sharing.

Here again re-reading the story, and at times a good story but Andrea is a horrible letdown, not lying to Miranda but not telling the true either...Very confusing if we believe that Andrea is a good, honest and noble individual which she isn't here. She's the one acting as if she were twelve years old. The story makes no sense and is very boring, totally redundant. Andrea is not the grown up in the room. Andrea wants to be "self-made" and mature forging her way through life, but almost has an orgasm if Miranda "just touches" her waist as she loses balance? What is that? Something twelve year olds dream about. I'm rapidly losing interest after this last reading it's just too cheesy.

I just read this whole thing in one sitting and wow. You are a very talented writer, thank you!

I absolutely loved everything about this. The angst, the waiting, the seduction on both sides, the final sex scene. In all of this you have captured the characters so well. The ending didn’t give me the feeling of permanence I’d hoped for, though. But I get the feeling Andréa did feel it.

Late to the party but what a fabulous find. Your writing, the way this story unfurled, was perfect. Tantalising and immensely erotic. Thank you for sharing.

She wants to soak up Andrea. To keep yourself up during this time.

Finally, Andrea has managed to shine through all her horrible difficulties with Miranda in such splendid fashion, no pun intended. This has to be my favorite story in fact by far the best. Thank you for corralling my interest it will a while before I venture into a equally beautiful story. You have spoiled me completely and I thank you for that.

Andrea has decided to dress like a "street person" in worn and out of fashion clothes while working at a premiere fashion magazine...and... and she has the temerity to criticize Miranda? What Miranda wears is her business, quite literally. This whole chapter is based on Andrea's outlandish ego-concentric selfish fetishes for Miranda Priestly, and has failed miserably due to another unhealthy fascination, she covets Miranda's body. Andrea does this openly and wanton, she even loses control when Miranda innocently mentions her "bed". That is so perverted. Who becomes "hot and bothered" when someone mentions a bed? Andrea has some serious issue's. She is in need of therapy, and a compassionate yet goal-oriented psychologist. She (Andrea) has lost my respect as a paragon of virtue and fair minded female, shame on you Andrea, I'll never again share another heart-shaped chocolate cookie in bed with you, you floozie.

I'm so used of Andrea being the "Smart girl" but in this story she is the "Not so Smart girl". The way she reacts to Miranda's insults, just takes them with somewhat silly thinking and no spine or intelligent answers and further demeans herself is tragic. I'm certain this is just a one-off story and she would never conduct herself as the "token air head". This is my second read of the story, I had hopes that the first read was just a misunderstanding on my part, but alas it wasn't and Andrea is such a let down that I find no reason Miranda would or should continue 'any kind' of relationship with Andrea, unless Miranda also suffers from some kind of loss of self-esteem to match Andrea's? Anyway I have enjoyed many of your DWP stories, thank you for your interest and involvement.

Thank you. Showing how close they were becoming afterwards. Very nice. Showing how Andrea was able to move on and yet still be confident. Oh Sophia is going to be so floored and upset.

You. You. Can most definitely write a scene.
