| turtey chapter 62 . 7/12
I wasn’t going to leave a review until I finished and I love this story to bits, but oh my god, Scarlett is driving me INSANE.
She is a good person with good intentions, but she’s so in denial about everything that she doesn’t handle well. Of course she’s had a hard life, and I know it’s unintentional, and normally overthinkers and worriers don’t bother me at all because once upon a time I definitely was one, but her constant need to justify her actions and her inability to comprehend when people don’t understand her perspective is infuriating. She’s so caring and understanding of others but cannot see her behaviour as being hurtful. Like she excuses her most selfish actions with the fact that she has good intentions and that can’t possibly mean she is at fault, when that’s not how life workssometimes intention doesn’t matter, it’s the result. Her decision to withhold the vow from Justin was, at its core, selfish and cowardly. The scene where she essentially chases down Justin and in this chapter, Fred, demanding them to listen to her and also expecting them to do so comes off as total self-preservation because realising that she has massively fucked up would ultimately shatter the image she has of herself. Her inability to accept her feelings is totally justified, but what truly irritates me is that she’s totally aware that she’s terrified of her shadow, yet (even though she says she wants to change that), she uses it as an excuse, throws herself a pity party about it and then gives up entirely before giving anything a chance because ultimately she believes her perspective to be right and the only way. She’s unable to accept responsibility on the things and the decisions within her control, choosing to obsess over everything she can’t change instead. I want a friend like Erica, because if I behaved like Scarlett (going back to the earlier chapters too) I would have absolutely no friends left.
Maybe I’m projecting. In fact, I most definitely am. But this almost hatred I currently have of Scarlett tells me that you’re a great writer. I haven’t truly been vexed by a character in a long time, and your ability to drive me up the wall with a fictional character is such a skill that I envy. Plus after reading your other stories and more or less falling in love with your title characters tells me that you’re diverse and versatile and I hope you keep up with your writing.
I hope you don’t take this the wrong way. Keep up the great work and thank you for developing the stories you have!

Anyone else thinking that it happened on the same day isn’t an accident! They crashed into each other!

I feel like Fred and Scarlett are always on the same page while Justin is always a page behind.

This is the first Fred/OC story I’ve ever read and now it seems like I won’t ever find another story to top this one. You write beautifully and I honestly lost track of the number of times I cried while reading it. I’m so happy with the ending and that you decided to let them both live, stretching their time with the vow to the last second definitely stressed me out but I don’t think I would’ve preferred it any other way. I absolutely LOVED all of the Disney references! Overall it was a wonderful story

I've been reading this now for a few days and saw the announcement for your 'trailer'. I saw it and thought it was pretty good.
I've been enjoying the story and the trailer helped me to visualize the story characters better.
Best of luck with any future stories. I will have to look at more of yours.

I am so happy you let them live ,I love them too much too. I would've never forgiven you for killing them off.

Really loved the story :)
| Rrabbix chapter 59 . 9/11/2017
Wowza, what a chapter!
Bad move on Fred's part, don't force your girlfriend to see her dead mother in a casket, that's fucked up.
Felt a bit rushed too sadly, but nonetheless an okay chapter. :)

This has officially become one of my favorite Fred/Oc stories. In the beginning I just couldn't stop reading it and once I got closer to the end I just didn't want to finish it. I fell in love with your characters and this story, you didn't and awesome job!

Loved the quotes. Great story x
| Nina3KPop chapter 70 . 12/12/2016
So I'm not going to say that this is the best story I've ever read because their are many fantastic fanfictions out their, BUT! I will say that this is one of my favorite Fred/oc stories on this site.
I loved the development of them and their feelings, some times I just wanted to slap some sense into our lovely main character but no ones perfect right? That's what makes a character so good xD
I finished this quite quick and I found my self trying to slow down my reading but I just COULDNT! Wasn't possible! So I loved your story so much that I'll probably go back sometime and re read it again! Thanks for such a great story and I hope you keep up your great work

you have no idea how much I celebrated when I saw what happens to the Finch...
| Nicky995 chapter 1 . 7/5/2016
OMG! I LOVE this story. I literally have non stopped read this for the last day or so. By far one of the best stories I've read on ff. Don't ever stop writing because you are so amazing at it. My only problem was what happened to Sirius, you kind of forgot about him and he was just there sometimes, it may have been better if he had just died. Other than that it was amazing!
