Cheering Charm: "Tomorrow" by luminous_star

Why we loved it:

"I thought the author had captured the moment perfectly, and I found myself smiling when I finished reading." - anonymous. " If you're fond of something fluffy, this is the perfect one." - anonymous. "I enjoyed the simplicity of it, and even though, yes, it could be a scene we've seen written millions of times, it still kept my attention and had me smiling girlishly throughout." -anonymous.

Eureka!: "Freedom" by Chelles

Why we loved it:

"The author can definitely tell a story. I loved the characterization of Andromeda and how the author played off the other characters to make [the] story realistic." - anonymous. "It is excellent how s/he includes flashbacks from the main character of the story, and how she changes her personality and comes out of the shell throughout the story." - anonymous. "This story was beautiful. The emotions portrayed felt real, and I felt I could really see Andromeda growing up." - anonymous.
