Reviews For Getting Warmer
Reviewer: nataliem (Signed) · Date: February 07, 2010 10:13 PM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

IF I was fabulous enough to write a fic like this, I would definitely show it to my husband. Edward is a pretty freakin' ideal lover, maybe I would get lucky and the hubby would pick up on some foreplay tips.... Maybe I'll just go ahead and show him your fic....... Update soon with lots of inspiration for the husband??? Please? (I'll work on getting him to intstall a hot tub in our bathroom before the next chapter...I wish!)



Author's Response:

Thanks for your review, and I'm working on the next chapter. And, heh, you guys are really into hot tubs. Interesting...

Reviewer: Lily Cullen (Signed) · Date: January 28, 2010 11:21 AM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

Please don't make her pregnant. Please. I mean, considering the mythology that Meyer established, it really shouldn't be possible for vampire men to get human women pregnant.

And what do the chapter titles mean?



Author's Response:

No, it shouldn't, should it? The titles, so far, are airport and Amtrak codes.

Hey there, I love, love, love this story for so many reasons!

Firstly, your dialogue (and work in Bella's POV) is a true pleasure. It's lighthearted, and I think it works really well with the characters, if given to the idea that Bella never became pregnant in the book. You have a good run of little, memorable and humorous conversations. However, it's not just your dialogue that impresses me; I also really love your narrative work. It's clear that you've either visited a lot of the States or have done your research--I commend you, either way! Everything feels very real about the places you're taking us. :)

Secondly, I really appreciate the thought you've put into your idea. You've tackled the elephant in the room: that Edward's essentially dead and cold, even if lovable. Hahaha! It always bothers me that this is never really mentioned in fanfics, despite its being mentioned often in the books, outside of when they were on hot and muggy Isle Esme.

One small error I'd like to point out though (hope you don't mind!) is that women could vote in presidential elections in Illinois in 1913. It's a common misconception that women didn't have the right to vote until 1920, but that was just the year of the federal amendment. A number of states had provisions in their own law books that allowed women to vote in federal, if not state and local elections. (In much of the western side of the U.S., for instance, women had full voting rights well before the amendment--some as early as the 1860s.) If Edward's mother had been a suffragist (love that idea!), she would have been voting in at least one presidential election (in 1916...Woodrow Wilson) before her untimely death in Illinois. Hope you don't mind my mentioning this--only reason I have is that you seem to care a lot about your research!

Anyway, this is a great story, and I'm looking forward to enjoying more chapters, so keep 'em coming! How far are you going to go with it--through Bella's change?

P.S. - I concur on the Thomas Kincade joke. I hate Thomas Kincade, too. With a fucking passion. But then, I'm an art lover, and an atheist, so it's bound to happen.

P.S. #2 - This line--"I couldn’t tell if he was gay or just British."--actually made me burst out laughing.

P.S. #3 - I think the chapter names correspond with airport codes or...something? SPK - Spokane..LGA - LaGuardia. I could be wrong, though.



Author's Response:

Thanks so much! And dammit, I can't believe I messed that history up; I thought it was just Wyoming. Well, good for Illinois, and I'll figure out a way around it, because we can't have Edward be wrong -- the horror!

The temperature difference seemed an interesting problem to tackle, but I can understand not dealing with it. I'd prefer not to have to think about sparkles, for instance.

I didn't know that about Kinkade -- I just always disliked his work.

And yes, you're partly right. The bonus question is still open, though!

I absolutly love this story, Bella and Edward are really happy and you convey that joy exceptionaly well. At the same time there's enough serious moments to give the story depth and keep it believable.

Your an incedably talented writer and I hope to read more soon.



Author's Response:

Thanks much!

Reviewer: Katrina117 (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 11:08 PM · On: Chapter 4: ORD

I'm really, really loving this story. I'm really impressed with both the length and quality. I'll write something more once I've read all you've posted so far, I just thought I'd mention that about 3/4 of the way through this ch you have the word yours instead of years. Such a tiny thing, that it really doesn't matter, but the little review box was right there so ...

Anyway, please keep writing this story, it's the best I've come across in a long time.



Author's Response:

Thanks, and thanks for the fix!

Reviewer: as63926 (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 09:25 PM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

A lot of stories I read changes Bella within two chapters. I am thrilled that I found your story! The pace, the actual places, the BLANKETS!!!

Author's Response:

Thanks for the review, and lol!

Reviewer: tatie87 (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 09:24 PM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

Great chapter!!!! I love how you characterize Bella and Edward; its so sweet and yummy.

The diner scene was very interesting. The Albanian waitress brought up Bella having a child, mmmmh. I'm wondering if the Albanian waitress will show up again in this story and if her prediction will bear fruit.

Can't wait to see Bella and Edward explore Dartmouth together.



Author's Response:

Thank you so much!

Reviewer: newrivers (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 05:07 PM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

I love it, thank you!  Update soon!



Author's Response:

Great Chapter, Can't wait for more...



Author's Response:

Thanks :)

Reviewer: ludo (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 02:01 PM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

What a beautiful chapter! I have loved this whole story so much, you write with such passion and grace and I cant wait to read your next chapter.



Author's Response:

Thanks again!

Reviewer: Horizon77 (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 01:46 PM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

I'm really enjoying follwing this! Your characterizations are so believable and true to what Stephenie started. It's nice to see a happy, calm Edward for a change. :) Thanks for taking us into a Breaking Dawn AU that is actually well done! Hurry up and finish the next chapter!!



Author's Response:

Thanks so much!

Reviewer: Spitalgate (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 12:26 PM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

Fantasic chapter, as per usual.

 

My only thing is this is not going to turn into a pregnant Belle fic is it? I m just enjying it to muh as it is at the moment.

I look forward to an update.



Author's Response:

Thanks :) I'm working on it!

Reviewer: Randy (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 08:55 AM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

Such a cute story, really enjoying it, even if it made me realize how old I really am.

In the late 70's my boyfriend at the time had an apartment in the east village in NYC. Apparently David Byrne had an apartment in the same building. The talking heads were popular then. I did not start very young and my kids are still too young to have kids, but I guess I am old enough to be a grandma. This chapter brought back memories of those days for me.



Author's Response:

Thanks! No, don't say that  -- I wrote that b/c to a teenager everyone over 25 is ancient. And b/c, as you've shown, the man is EVERYWHERE....

Reviewer: AlliYoyo (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 06:17 AM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

Edward shouldn't use the words 'hard' and 'fast' when talking about anything sexually related. Ever. No one should. That's just walking into a comeback. And Rosalie's 'linguist' pun was just bad (yet it still makes me laugh, so I don't know what that says about me...)

Hmm, very presumptuous of Miss Eastern European to assume that Edward was just keeping Bella alive to get her pregnant. Although, I'm sensing some foreshadowing there. A valid literary technique.

How pissed is Alice going to be that Bella didn't check the closet out again?

Can't wait to read more!



Author's Response:

Thanks so much! Sure, it's a cheap laugh, but those guys are 100 going on 18, so I think Bella's in for an eternity of penis jokes...

Reviewer: jsjohnson73 (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 05:45 AM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

I loved this chapter!  You have amazing talent.  Thank you for sharing with us.  I really found the scene at the diner interesting.   I've often wondered about others reactions to the Cullens and this one was quite interesting.  The "blessing" the girl put on Bella was unique.  I was curious about where that was going.  Did you research that info or is it purely your own version?  Very good work!!!  I can't wait for the next chapter.  college!!!!!!  I loved College and I hope Bella has an amazing experience.  I also well remember orientation weekend.  While we didn't have to hike, etc we did have to do all kinds of crazy "trust" building exercises, etc.  Embarrassing at first but so fun



Author's Response:

Thanks for your review! The Albanians have their own vamp lore, and because of their history with the Ottomans, they make their monsters Turkish.

Reviewer: Camilla (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 05:41 AM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

Great chapter, cultured as usual and with delightful sex exploration. But what I particularly liked was the haunting scene with the Albanian waitress. I wonder if there is going to be a follow up on what she predicted ...

On final question. What do the acronyms with wich you title your chapters mean?



Author's Response:

Thanks again! They're airport and train station codes.

Reviewer: AliciaZA (Signed) · Date: January 24, 2010 05:14 AM · On: Chapter 7: YNY

Great Chapter!! I love the Edward and Bella fluff - not only is it so cute and funny but so hot and sexy as well (lol). That Rosalie, she's a sly one (lmao). That Albanian chick has made me so curious. Will Edward and Bella get pregnant? Hmm... definitely opposed to it - it would be fun, especially since that mangy dog Jacob is not around. But for the moment, I'm happy with the Edward and Bella sexy fluff and looking forward to their experiences at Dartmouth. Looking forward to the next chapter....



Author's Response:

Thanks so much! You make me blush!

Reviewer: Applegirl (Signed) · Date: January 22, 2010 10:21 AM · On: Chapter 1: GIG

I hope U update soon I keep checking back !



Author's Response:

Thanks! My next chapter is all ready, so it should be up soon!

I have to tell you, I never review and I've been on the site for over a year now, but I absolutely love this story. It is one of my all time favorites and I literally check everyday to see if you've updated. Please please post the next chapter!!! 



Author's Response:

Aw, that's so nice, thank you! I know --- I'm so slow that you'd never believe that I had most of the next chapter written months ago. And the next, and the next...

Reviewer: Lily Cullen (Signed) · Date: January 08, 2010 07:24 AM · On: Chapter 6: NYP

oh hell no my so does not read my fan fic. we fight more about what he calls my 'obsession' and i call my 'passion' for twilight than anything else.

you're amazing, btw. i've never read an nc17 that captures the voice and spirit that stephenie puts into her books so well.



Author's Response:

Thanks! Most people do seem to lean against sharing.

Reviewer: Kiwibeme (Signed) · Date: January 06, 2010 03:21 AM · On: Chapter 6: NYP

I love it so far. It's very sweet and romantic. Makes me wish I was a newlywed again! Can't wait to read more! =)
