Love how you left her feeling a bit awkward at the end. Lol. Cant wait for the next update
Author's Response: Personal experience tells me anxiety doesn't let you out of most interactions without feeling like a screw up. ๐

Thank you so very much for the wonderful update. You sensed that we were all eager to get their conversation started, right?!! Nice job. And funny, too. I would love for you to write updates full of their text messages, because they are the most interesting things. Them trying to say things of importance without revealing who they are.,Quite the challenge I would say๐ Please give us more
Author's Response: I did figure it was time, yes. ๐ There definitely will be a lot more text messages now that they're talking. Thank you for reading!

Yay an update! This is great so far. For some reason, I see them exchanging letters rather than texts but I think it's just more convenient to use the phone. I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: I actually had wanted it to be them exchanging letters, but it would take so long between them and Michael's taking off for Japan so texting just ended up making more sense. Thanks for reading!

I like your writing style and the way you are taking your time to work out the characters and the plot. Great English, so I presume you are a native speaker. It is essential for a good story to use proper English and your story seems to build up just fine. Like the calm and quite moments where you are describing Michaelโs solitude and his desperation and exhaustion. It is sad but then again makes your story all so much more interesting and believable as it is close to the truth. I am looking forward to the next chapter ๐‘๐’
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review!

This is fantastic woman. This story reminds me of the essay Constance Pierce wrote of MJ and JD Salinger called 'Privacy'. Your art is a truly tribute to MJ and literature. Lovely!
Author's Response: Oh, wow. Thank you! I will have to look up that essay and give it a read. :-)

lovee this update. like the friendship dynamics you went into more. contrasting doug and ivys buisness yet friends relationship with michael and rods and franks. lol the cat. sounds like ivys got anxiety ;/ sucks me too. love how you described at the end how exhausting it is for him to make friends really cuz he has to do a complete background check on em and find out what they really want etc.
Author's Response: Thank you :) Yes, Ivy is definitely suffering from anxiety, and it will be addressed further down the line a little more. Not knowing who he could trust seems to me to be one of the most heartbreaking things. Hopefully here he makes a new acquaintance very soon...

I am still very much enjoying this so far, Ivy is so sweet I really like her personality. I can identify with her a lot seeing as I’m a literature addict ๐ and I really love this whole concept; haven’t come across anything like it before. At this moment it’s clear that Ivy has no intention of getting involved with her muse Michael Jackson, if you will, but little does she know he’s going to go see her...! Well that’s what I’m predicting anyway๐‘. I’m looking forward to the next update!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm also a literature addict and after reading how Michael Jackson was a big reader I couldn't help myself. It won't be too long now until they're interacting here. :)

Yay awesome chapter! I can't wait until they meet. Hopefully soon!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm drawing it out a little so I can build Ivy and her friends (and Michael's OC friends) up as characters. It won't be too long now, though. :)

Hi! I saw your review on my story earlier and also realised you have a story too so I thought I’d give it a try. Well, I’m glad I did! I think this is an interesting beginning - love how they are inspired by each-other’s art. I’m here for this!
Author's Response: Thank you! I love your story! It's so great:D Thank you for stopping by to read mine! I hope you like where this one goes.
