very well put together! Who can argue with romance?

very honest - in my opinion this is one of the strongest entries this week.

You've created a very believable character. Good job!

Also love that Ned's style was more interesting than sugar and spice. Christian girl in Goth make up...but of course ;)
I really like this. Ned seems very real with his anxieties about whether or not he is gay because he hasn't met a girl who really attracted him yet. His friendship with Matthew was believable (not sure about them watching Beaches, though - ugh! I'm a girl and I can't stand it.), and the fact that he topped his dad's prayer list with Bush, Blair, Bin Laden, etc. was very real and funny. Conclusion was great -- the goth makeup got him! :) Fun. Very well done.

Was easily drawn into the character of Ned and loved many aspects of this piece. Was very entertaining to read. Well done!

A beautiful piece. The confusion that you portrayed was very real, especially as others all advised him different ways. The lovely ending where he finds a girl he is attracted to was very satisfying. Well done!
