Holy crap. My teeth hurt, it was so sweet. ^_~ lovely story. The way you portrayed Darien was a very nice change. Keep up the excellent work!

kawaii!!

Loved it! Congrats on an awesome story!

Well, I must say that I completely disagree. I think the story was wonderfully original. Truly a breath of fresh air! I liked how you made Darien out to be the ugly ducking rather than how the norm make Serena that way. I also felt that it was very well written and didn't find any distracting errors. So, out of 5 stars I would definately give it 10!! Great job! Don't listen to them! Thank you for sharing!

Like probably everyone else I think the story absolutely shouldn't have been rated NC-17 there was unfourtunately nothing in it to warrant it. Sure the idea behind it was unique & original, but there were way too many gramatical & spelling mistakes for me to fully enjoy the story. I wouldn't neccessarily give it 5 stars.

This was so cute!
I loved the originality of it especially, it was like Peter Parker and Mary Jane in anime form. So cute!

This story is the perfect hollywood movie. Sweet full of passion this story will leave think aww how cute.. Don't even think about not reading Paradise
XxSailor_PrincessxX - Saturday August 12, 2006 at 02:19
This is the first story that I have read on this site, and I just simply love it. You wrote it less then 10 chapters, and it was really well written. I like how you had Darien as not just Mr. Perfect like you would see in most stories, but kind of like a klutz. I cant wait to read more stories that you wrote. Keep up the good work.
spoiltkami88 - Tuesday August 01, 2006 at 04:52
Interesting twist on a often times too played out scenario.
twine - Tuesday April 18, 2006 at 20:12

RENA630 - Saturday October 02, 2004 at 06:27
This was an astoundingly cute story! I loved every thing about the plot. You made a overly done plot line unique and that was great. It's amazing because I would have never pictured Darien as a geek...EVER...but in this story I could. You get major points for that. I also love how you weaved in the love scene...very classy. It didn't interfere with the plot or the message you were trying to get through...in fact I think it added to it. The way you mixed virgin innocence with carnal passion is amazing and the emotions felt very real. I also admired the way you portrayed the emotions and surroundings...it's as if I were actually there (teehee I wish)! Unlike most writers who just stick in a sex scene to draw readers you did it to emphasize their feelings towards each other and to answer Serena's question "How do you know?" you ended the love scene very modestly and I love it because it leaves to the imagination… (Although I thought the sentence "And the sounds of love echoed into the night.” Was a bit corny the fact that everything before that was nicely done made it acceptable.)

Now I did however have a problem with Serena's character. Don't get me wrong I could relate to her in many aspects but I couldn't get a definite hold on her personality. She seemed very down to earth, sweet, and innocent but she doesn't seem as glamorous and idealistic as many of the characters described her to be. For example: “She in turn left behind the polished Serena and instead went for a more natural look now.” She honestly didn't seem that polished in the first place which made it a problem for me to see what the other characters saw. “He was her friend and she wasn't going to dump him just because he wasn't good for her image. She'd never dump any of her friends.” See she seemed very down to earth and not at all posh or stuck up…what I'm trying to say is that you wanted to try to make her seem a bit too into herself and her image but I don't think it really worked. Therefore the little clues you sprinkled to try and make the illusion that she was stuck up just steered me in the wrong direction at times. Also your sentence structures were a bit simplistic which is nice don't get me wrong. I hate to read stories that have huge vocabulary words used as constantly as the word “I” or “a”…it takes away from the story. Your structure did become too simplistic at times but that wasn't what bothered me. What bothered me is that you seem to weave in some informal speech into your sentences and they sometimes sound as if they rather be said out loud (dialogue) then read. For example: “And let's just say the thought of shopping was much more appealing than balancing equations.” That sounds a bit too casual to me….something that Serena might say. Plus the “Lets just say” implies to me that the reader (you) is actually stating and opinion rather than one of the characters. It just sounds unprofessional you know? Oh and some things were unrealistic too me like the fact that Malachite and Serena shared a room…I highly doubt that would happen especially on a high school field trip. Also the fact that they got tipsy is a bit unrealistic to me. If the part was chaperoned then I am certain there would have been a limit to how much wine they could drink.
Other than that I can't complain about the story. I really liked the plot. It was a very sweet, very romantic story that was very refreshing to read. I hope I didn't knit pick too much I just pointed out some of the things I noticed while I was reading. Oh and I understand this was probably written a while ago…yes I am a late bloomer….and I understand you have improved since then (Your published for god's sake!)…I just thought I'd review anyway! WISE!
LadyLace - Thursday September 09, 2004 at 01:56
Wow that was great. I really enjoyed it. I loved the nerdy Darien he was so cute.
Heather1087 - Tuesday August 10, 2004 at 00:50
This story is just so cute...! And I would def. date any dork that looked like Darien...I even like glasses. ;0)Good job Aria :0)
sailor_jupiter22 - Sunday April 25, 2004 at 17:03
I would love to be stranded on some island with someone i care about alot and not have to worry about n e thing in the worlld. Your story is great.
Rolling14reader - Sunday March 07, 2004 at 19:20
Yeah, it was alright. A good plot, but it wasn't the best. Good sex scene but not the hottest. All in all it was a good story
serenashields18 - Friday February 13, 2004 at 17:43
WOW. Kawaii!
sexysailor101 - Monday December 01, 2003 at 02:07
oh my god! this is about one of the best stories that i've read since i first subscribe, which wasn't too long ago. it has all the feelings that you would associate with darien and serena. without all the name calling of course. all i can say is i love it and hope to find more like it. I especially like how you get straight to the feeling of attraction and skip all the drama.
serenasangel - Friday September 12, 2003 at 23:02
awwww so cute!!
SweetDreamer - Thursday August 28, 2003 at 16:07

bakabunny - Saturday June 07, 2003 at 01:06
I enjoyed this story, although I found it a tad bit too short. I wanted more, but all in all I LOVED IT!
Gemini_Moon607 - Saturday January 04, 2003 at 05:08
Finally! I've been waiting for this type of fic for a while. I always wondered wat a story would be like where either Darien or Serena weren't popular and they got together. I thought of writing one myself but I'm not a very good writer.-_-' I really enjoyed this story, it was well written, funny, and touching. I especially liked the part where Serena's hiding from Darien and looks like an ostrich with her head in the sand.^_^ Please write more soon because your a great author!
Deny - Thursday January 02, 2003 at 04:42
Hi,it was so sweet. I couldn't believe mally did that to her. I really was a very cute story.

This was a very cut story. Very well written.
Anonymous - Saturday September 21, 2002 at 21:11
Okay we have come to the conclusion that everything you write is very good. Well..extremely good. So from now on we figure we could just save ourselves the trouble of writing a whole lot of reviews for you stories and just say everything you write is great and keeps us interested the whole way through.
