for Valentine Wars

This was very nice! Although I wasn't exactly in love with the story's plot, the way you've written the piece - your perfect grammar, flawless syntax, and lovely way with words - certainly made up for it. There's always something really refreshing about a well-written story, and this one definitely is an example of those. Keep it up! Xx

Hi! It's Juliet from A Drop of Romeo. When your story was featured on ADoR, this review was written for it: Reading this, it's pretty easy to see why this one-shot was a SKoW prompt winner. It was funny, cute, and well-written-a very rare combination.

It's about a girl named Abbey on Valentine's Day, a holiday she abhors. Her friend Olivia, however, is determined to make her day a great one. Abbey has a crush on Noah (who may or may not have a crush on Olivia), who is in the men's a capella group at school. For Valentine's Day, students can buy singing grams and this group will go from class to class all day delivering them to the unfortunate recipients. Olivia sends one to Abbey for Noah to perform, and the attached message (which he reads) hints at her crush on him. From the moment Abbey finds out she sent one to her, the war is on, and they spend the rest of the day sending Noah back and forth, singing to them in turn.

If it sounds embarrassing, that's because it is, and that's what makes it so funny. Abbey's reactions are believable-awkward but trying desperately not to be. Noah is pretty cute too. He doesn't seem to get too embarrassed by singing ridiculous love songs to boys and girls all day. The only thing I didn't really like about this one-shot was the whole I-hate-Valentine's Day-and-I-don't-believe-in-love thing. It's become a bit over done. However, that wasn't enough to detract from the cute-funny-sweetness of the story. Really, I was laughing and smiling throughout the whole one-shot. Even though there's a 99.73% chance (I did the math) that you won't be reading this on Valentine's Day, I definitely suggest taking a few minutes out of your day to read Valentine Wars. .

Loved it! The singing valentine war was a refreshingly original and humorous idea...plus, it was cute! All in all, great story!

Nice! That was sweet at the end, grumpy at the beginning, and funny in between. I really enjoyed it!

I love it! The rivalry was so funny! And how they just pushed Noah from person to person. And the Cobra Chord's, interesting idea.
It was very funny, and romantic!
Definitely a favourite.

Oh, I hate Valentine's day xD I remember back when our class would have to make cards for everyone...

Anyways, it was cute. I liked the whole singing idea, though it sounds very akward and all, but it was a well written story.

Oh, I would have loved to hear Noah's thoughts on Abbey and how he fell in love with her.

This is so insanely GOOD. Like... wow. You know that happy feeling you get when you've just read something really good? Yeah, I'm basking in that right now.

Even though it's a one-shot, your characters are so well-rounded and completely believable.

And now I'm off to your profile to see what else you've written.

PS: If you could review my story Life: One Giant Mess, I'd really be eternally grateful.

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I must say I loved what I just read. Noah seems adorable and sweet. I love that they were friends (but not best friends) rather than just a 'supposedly' one-sided crush. The premise of the whole thing was fantastic. My school gave out roses at the end of the day, but this seems infinitely more awesome. So yeah, I love this oneshot. Well done.

I don't get it.

Ahahaha this was so adorable. I was reading this and I was like aloud, "Oh man, that was so adorable!" So you know, it's true. It was. It was so unexpected, how he ended up liking Abbey, but you know, it wasn't that unrealistic either. It was cute. Aw. It's so aw. xD

Amazing, really. Great one-shot!

This is adorable. The perfect V-day piece. I wish my school had done this. We just had colored carnations...each color had a different meaning. Needless to say I never got any. Acapella singeres are much cuter. :) Wonderful and fun to read.
