This story is beyond awesome.  The whole thing with Jessica was hilarious.  So dinner?  Maybe a peek at the tatoo?  This is a wonderful Bella/Edward pairing!  Loved Rob too!

Have I told you ladies how much I love this story?  It is like a fairy tale come true - I'm reading along ... "Just as our lips were about to touch ..."  All of a sudden out of nowhere 3 pink flamingos and a singing lobster pop up "Sha-la-la-la-la-la don't be scared - you got the mood prepared - go on and kiss ther girl...."  Don't ask, I have no idea why I transported to Little Mermaid .....  This was one time I was not happy to see Rob! 

In any event, I am so happy you are sharing this story with us.

What an evil toad excuse of a human Jacob is in this story.  But know matter what Edward is going to win right?  Uh, ladies, I am right on this, right? 
Bethaboo, tamelaine please tell me I am right.  Ok, ok I wait like everyone else to find out -- Waiting patiently, yep that's me.

Oh, honey, you were right to be totally happy with that chapter!  Myself!   I love so many of the Edwards that are in the stories on this site but your Edward is one of my favorites.  His self confidence and his adoration of Bella makes me swoon .... of course there is the hottness factor to consider.  The story, too, is refreshing and original.   

As always I can't seem to get enough of this story!  Remember to take time for your real lives and as always I wait patiently for your next chapter.

I was gone for 10 days and somehow I missed this update!  That will not happen again, I hope!

I love this Edward.   There is a sweetness about him that endears him to my heart.   I would jump over puddles with him anytime.

Oh, Beth, is there any wonder why this is one of my favorite stories?  Don't throw things at me ok, but, I've never been a great fan of tattoos.  Now I have this incredible urge to march my husband down to the nearest tattoo parlor and have tattoos strategically placed in all the right places. Go figure!

In any events thank you, both of you, for sharing this wonderful story with us.

This story has been and continues to be one of the all time best stories....Just can't get enough of it! 

Bella, Bella what are the writers going to do with you? Honey you are so perfect for Edward.  And Edward, continue to love the girl and take home the gold.  Let Esme and Alice work their special magic in keeping these two together.

So who tipped the reporters?  My guess would be Jake.  You don't suppose Tyler had anything to do with this do you?  After all he was out all night and perhaps his return to the room was the signal to the reporters?

And although I patiently await the next chapter I certainly understand your real life needs especially during the holiday season.  May you and yours be blessed with all that is good in this world.  My hope for you is that you are indeed repaid in kind for all the joy you bring us with your wonderful writing skills.

Congratulations ladies for the nominations!

And thank you for another chapter of pure win.   Every time I see this story update I drop what I am doing and read.  Loved it when Edward looked for Bella and kissed her in front of everyone...to let the world know this is his girl.  How can a heart not be happy  after reading that?!

In a time of so much angst and "alternative attitude" it is refreshing to know that the straight up fairy tale is still alive.

Gaw, I love this story.  Great chapter, Tam.  Beth, if you read this, he's got to win, he just has to.  Carlisle wants it for his son. Esme wants it for her son.  Bella wants it for him.  And I know you want it for him too!  His fate is in your hands.

Loved this chapter.  Loved that Tyler was able to hold onto the lead for his team to win.  Loved that Emmett proposed to Rosalie.  Loved that Bella stood up to Laurent.  (That Laurent guy is really beginning to p*** me off.  Who does he think he is trying to dictate Bella's work ethic?  Slimy, slug, crap head.)  Loved that Bella went back to stay the night with Edward.  Loved that they shared stories and are so comfortable together.  Loved that she talked to him and encorauged him to do his best in tomorrows competition.

Patiently and happily awaiting next chapter, in other words take your time ~ Sandra

He won, he won!  I had no doubt going in that he would but then the way it was worded I thought Noooooooo, he's got to win. Oh, me of little faith, right?!  What was I thinking?  Of course he would win.

I'm glad they finally came together ... completely.  The scene was written as only "bethaboo" could write it.  There is something about your "first time together" scenes that make my knees go weak and heart flutter!

But what is going to happen with the wedding proposal?  Please tell me she will accept before the story is over!

Loved It!

Time Magazine!  Impressive! I love the class that this Bella has.

And Edward, Be.Still.My.Heart.!  I am so excited to read about when he finds her!

As always, Great Job Ladies!

With a smile and a sigh and a happy heart I write this review.  A review for one of the best stories written for fan fiction.  I will certainly miss it once the epilogue is complete.

I giggled a bit that he was "caught" with his fans at the airport.  How cool for his fans and the stories they will have to tell their grandchildren.  I loved that he was so real with them connecting on such a personal level.

Finding Bella and her initial reaction was so cute.  But what exactly did he whisper to the reported in the hallway?  The whole interaction in her apartment was so real and as I sighed I just knew things were going to be fine between them. 

And although the epilogue is yet to come I can't help but begin my happy thoughts as I sit back and reflect the many wonderful moments of this story "...and I think to myself what a wonderful world.  Oh yeah." (Louis Armstrong)

So sorry to be late for the party but we've been out of town.  Your epilogue was the perfect end to a perfect story.

Going For the Gold has always been somewhat special to me.  I remember lurking on the forum one late August night and the topic of conversation on many threads were olympic sports.  Beth I remember you saying something about having an idea and shortly thereafter the first chapter of GFtG was up. 

This was the first collaboration I had ever read ... Your writing was seamless throughout and in all honesty I can't name any story I have enjoyed more, I've enjoyed many equally but not more.  Your dedication to excellence is obvious in every word you write.

Beth and Tami thank you so much for sharing this story with us and may you both be blessed with the best of everything in your futures.

Oh yeah, they are definatly going to fall in love in this story!  Hell I feel myself falling in love with Bella! 

You create a beautiful picture with your words.  I know I am going to like your writing style!

This story is so beautiful.  There is much sadness in this world but it is also filled with so much wonder and beauty.  To see Uganda thru your eyes and experience the has been a real treat.  I can tell that you are enjoying this as much as we are.  I loved the reference to Mr. Toad's Wild Ride!

Looking forward to your next update - waiting patiently - always patiently!

This chapter was so sad yet beautifully written.  It is so hard to fathom such tragedy.

Somehow I missed this update.  The up side is being able to read two chapters instead of one!   This is one of the purest most beautiful stories I've read in fan fiction and I love it.  The whole experience of the story is a joy to read.  And Edward's thoughts of falling in love are priceless!

Another stellar chapter and with the aid of google I was able to see waterfalls and caves.  What a wonderful experience...what a wonderful world.   But the rats ... necessary in the scheme of life but I am far too girly to handle things ike that rationally!

But the kiss .... be.still.my.heart. .... that I dealt with very rationally!  I was beginning to wonder if it was going to happen in this chapter or not and to happen in the water like that.  What a happy girly moment.

Looking very much forward to the Cullens family visit during the Christmas holiday.

Tam, we can't thank you enough for sharing this wonderful story with us.  Whether it is updated tomarrow, next week, next month is neither here no there.  A story with this beauty is timeless.
