thinks our heads are filled with body glitter rather than opinions
I laughed. As in actually, honestly laughed, and didn't just snort breath in a very unbecoming manner for a young lady. So, as often, this just shows what a talented writer you are.
Bahaha, Edie is so awkward and just doesn't know how to react around men, does she? (Second moment tonight where she reminds me of me, though for some reason, it feels less flattering this time).
Oh, I'd forgotten Dean was the one who got Edie the job! Here come the Deadie shipping feels again, it's entirely your fault!
You pulled off the flashback so well, which I find amazing because it's not even screaming !!!FLASHBACK!!! at our faces. Mildred is one heck of a lady, I wonder if I'll get a chance to sympathise with her or if she'll stay WW's Madame Pince until the very end. Her comment about the blue folder is very much The Devil Wears Prada, and right now I wish I could go and watch the movie again, except I can't because, well, the physics homework is still here.
NO EDIE ROSE ZELLER IS NOT YOUR FRIEND, OR ANYTHING ALONG THOSE LINES. NO
Oh, psh. You weren't too hard on her, she deserves it. Listen to me, Edie: I am the voice of reason (more like, I know how much Sarah enjoys torturing you) and ROSE IS BAD NEWS, AS BAD AS NEWS SUGGESTING OLIVER WOOD WOULD BE CANOODLING WITH A CENTAUR IN BELIZE (now I wonder who'd come up with that, really).
Haha, I thought back to your blog about Edie's deception at work. By the way, you never told me: how did ice-cream scooping work out for you?
Another great chapter &hearts
Author's Response: Woo! A full-on laugh is always good to hear about! Although the snorting would probably be more entertaining to witness... ;3
Oh yes. I think before I wrote this story, I was decently able to interact with boys. And I don't know if I'm just plugging too much of my thoughts into trying to understand Edie, but MAN, has that changed. There's a boy at work who is stupidly cute, and stuipdly nice, and we all have crushes on him (I AM JUST REALIZING HE IS LIKE THEO OMG EVEN THOUGH I HADNT MET HIM WHEN I WROTE THIS CHAPTER). But I'm always such an idiot around him. The first time he spoke to me I choked on my own spit and had to walk away because I was coughing so hard.
DEEDIE. Love it. Doesn't really make sense spelling-wise, but there it is.
hahahaha, the !~*~flashback~*~! thing kills me. You did a nice job with that yourself, in chapter two of Reason to Fight! I remember ;D
I DID NOT SCOOP ICE CREAM I REFUSED. It was probably a stupid idea, as I was really broke at the time. But my Edie-esque pride got in the way and I was all NO WAY I AM BETTER THAN THAT except I actually made up a passive-aggressive lie about having to work.
