One Big Mistake by presnieboer Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 109]
Summary: Marissa Leitner meets the one and only Orlando Bloom in a pub one night and ends up having every fan's dream; a one night stand with Orlando himself. Though they agree there should be no emotional attachment, neither of them has an easy time with it. In fact, Orlando is the first to break their pact and tries to look Marissa up, only to find that she's not interested. But is she really not interested or is something else going on? Will Orlando be able to get her to open up and confess the real reason she's "not interested"? Can a one night stand lead to a relationship? A real relationship?

Awe now I can't wait for the next one I mean I REALLY can't wait. Your very good at this you know. Its great to see that your able to make it more real life then just another one of those he gets the girl and its all sugar and roses with no real "drama" to it. Very refreshing and your stories give me something to look forward to (not that I don't have anything else I could do^^) Crystal

Author's Response: Thanks so much. It's actually taken me awhile to finally get the hang of the whole "angst" thing and it's really nice to know that people like what I write. I'm about to work on the next installment so you shouldn't have to wait long. Thanks again for your encouragement!

Title: Chapter 5: Chapter Two: It’s Just Been One Of Those Months Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Hearing the story told in Orlando POV was an interesting twist. I thought It was going to be all Marissa but hey it works. I especially this bit, "...big, mature adult about this..." thats rather humorous.

Author's Response: Thanks Crystal! I can't tell you enough how nice it is to have a reader so enthusiastic about this story; it really makes writing it much more worth while. And yeah, having Orlando being just as upset as Marissa is, does give it a bit of a twist but I figured the most common response to this kind of a situation would be for the girl to be pining for him and for him to, more or less, forget about her. But I think the opposite is much more interesting because it leaves people asking, "Who in their right mind would turn down Orlando Bloom?" especially when you consider the kinds of things she already knows he's capable of. Sorry for the long response, there's more to come soon, I promise!

Ohhh NASTY, yet extremely (Cann't spell for Banana's) addictive. By the way I hope you don't think I'm some sort of phyco fan who has nothing better to do. In fact I think that your stories are part of my daily reading I mean Im reading them why shouldn't they count?...and Im making no sence. Once again A good couple of chapters. Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: Thank you again and don't worry, I don't think you're a psycho fan. I'm really tickled pink that someone following my story so closely. It really means a lot to me! Thanks so much! Will have more soon!

Title: Chapter 8: Chapter Five: Paranoia Can Drive You Crazy Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Thats more like it, I was wondering what you were going to do, because I just can't picture Orlando like that...a jerk. Then again Im biais (sp?) because I think he is great, but then again, like so many other New Zealanders, I've met him. Great story and its more heart renching.

Author's Response: WOW! You actually MET him? That's AWESOME! You'll have to share the details with me sometime. :D Being an American and from Michigan, I'm pretty sure the only way I'LL ever meet him is if I leave and got to LA or something. Anyway, sorry for rambling and thanks for the lovely comment, I'm not entirely sure what possessed me to write him like that, my own lame attempt at hard-core angst perhaps. But yeah, I realized after I posted it that I really didn't want to go that way so I wrote myself out of the corner. I really can't see him being like that anyway, after reading all the encounters and hearing him interviewed, he just doesn't seem like THAT type of guy. More to come soon, I promise.

Title: Chapter 9: Chapter Six: Something’s Screwy In St. Louie Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
*Place a crowd of people;s shocked gasps here*...Wow that brie chick is a lot like me, very observent. This has just picked up a notch, I like it. I can't wait to see whats going to happen at the next photo shoot. By the way I really like the fact that they are continuing there normal lives, it makes the meeting of them a lot more real. ^^ Keep it up.

Author's Response: Ah yes, well if these two are ever going to get together, there has to be at least one nosy friend involved, maybe even two...

Title: Chapter 10: Chapter Seven: Women And Their Bloody Intuition Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Oh no! say it aint so. Marissa wouldn't turn down Orlando...well mabey the first couple of trys; but being the good fan fic writer I know the ending has to be good for the both of them, although why bother thinking about that when I have to fret about the photo shoot. This is so unfair this story isn't even real but im still worried about the bloody photo shoot. Damn you and your writing abilities ^^.

Author's Response: Thank you, I'm happy that my writing is striking such a cord. I don't know, WOULD Marissa turn down Orlando? We shall see, we shall see. Thanks for the comments, they mean a lot!

Title: Chapter 11: Chapter Eight: Stuff You Never Learned About The Birds And The Bees Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Hmm interesting, I must say that the snecky Orlando POV at the end was well worth it. I can't wait to see how Marissa and Orlando will react to that. Interesting in deed.

Author's Response: Well thank you very much, I figured you had to get a peek at his thought process because his perspective is CRUCIAL for this.

Title: Chapter 12: Chapter Nine: Oh The Things You Can Learn At A Photo Shoot! Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
This one was by FAR the best. I like the fact that Brie and Dom are little observers. It worked in well. Oh and that little note at the end about taking the piss, i find it funny cause I knew what it ment and then i saw you explained it at the bottom. Keep it up

Author's Response: Well thank you, I think I liked writing this one the best as well, and I've been waiting for an opportunity to use that "take the piss" phrase ever since I figured out what it meant. Someone had to piece this thing together and it might as well be two well-meaning friends right? I wonder what'll happen while these two are planning to bring Orlando and Marissa together. Hmmm. . . .

Title: Chapter 13: Chapter Ten: Bringing People Together Really Brings People Together Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Awe Dom and Brie are smitten...well at least they are well on there and they have only really known each other for a day. Whats install with the photo shoot I wonder?

Author's Response: Hmm, good question, guess we'll find out soon won't we?

Title: Chapter 15: Chapter Twelve: Thisclose To Getting My Ass Fired Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Elven sences...hehe, nice. Sorry I didn't review the last one but I've only just gotten back on. I Really liked this one, its one of the best. Keep it up I can't wait to see what will happen in the Caribbean.

Author's Response: Don't worry about it and thanks for commenting now. And there is more to come shortly, working on it presently; we'll finally hear from Marissa again.

Title: Chapter 16: Chapter Thirteen: Vacationing In The Caribbean Is A Good Thing, Right? Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Oh damn and here I was thinking that, that little dream of hers would all fall into place. Although this worked out just as well. I'm feeling all giddy and girly ^^

Author's Response: Thanks for the comment, we'll just have to see if it DOES pan out like that.

Title: Chapter 17: Chapter Fourteen: It’s A Small, Small World Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Now its getting really juicy...What is Marissa's secret? you sure know how to keep your audience wrapped around yur little finger don't you? Cleaver girl.

Author's Response: Thank you, yeah I think Marissa was only using the sex as an excuse to keep him away so now that it's no longer an issue, what's she going to do?

Title: Chapter 18: Chapter Fifteen: Surfing Lesson Gone Wrong Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
she picked up surfing pretty quick...mind you some people have a natural talent for that sort of thing. Just quick don't surf do you? its just that my first lessons always stated with practicing the jumping movement on the shore line before going into the water...not the point. Marissa might not be terribly happy when she finds out what Orlando has said to the doctors, but if she did it wouldn't make for good drama would it? Keep it up.

Author's Response: Yeah, I apologize for the inaccuracy but if she didn't pick it up quick she never would've fallen and you know the rest. Yeah, Marissa may not be too happy with what Orlando said to the doctors but her morphine may help that.

Title: Chapter 20: Chapter Seventeen: Marissa’s Secret Pain Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Fantastic. I wondered why she kept pushing him away like that and now the powers that be (You) have told me YAY...*caugh* sorry about that. What pleased me more was that randomly you updated twice in one day Yippie! Congrats on another splended chapter...Can't wait (but unfortunally have to) for the next chapter. ^^

Author's Response: Ahh yes well I'd been planning out the reason for a while and I was in the mood to write so I did. Thanks for the comment and more will come soon!

Title: Chapter 21: Chapter Eighteen: Caring For The Sick, Body And Soul Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Awe sweetness to the max! Usually Im not one for romantic gestures but OMG that bath sounded like heaven! Mind you the fact that 'Orlando' was caring enough to not push her into anything...aka not worring when she mentioned bathing suits shows that he really cares. What more can I say? Brillent

Author's Response: Thanks, Orlando's a real stand-up guy I think so he wouldn't push Marissa into anything.

Title: Chapter 22: Chapter Nineteen: Giving Love A Chance Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Awe the sweetness in that chapter...I'm speechless, I'm at an utter loss of words...I mean I can't think of anything to say...and I thought I was speechless. Sad I know. Anyway that was a cute chapter. I wonder if those photos are going to come and bite her in the arse later on, no pun intended. Who will get hold of those? if thats even going to happen. I'm so confussed all these things are going through my head and your the only one who really knows. Damn the power you posess ^^

Author's Response: Hmmm, someone getting a hold of those, I didn't think of that, that's an idea! Hmm, who COULD get a hold of them? I'll have to sit on that one. Thanks for the comment and inspiration.

Title: Chapter 23: Chapter Twenty: Concussion Plus Sweltering Heat Equals Bad! Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Just when she was making the moves it has to be because of her sleepyness and exhustness (sp?)... poor guy. I must say that if it were the oother way around and and the guy i loved was doing that to me in that situation... it would be hard to bare. Oh well i guess I'll just have to wait and see if anything really happens with them because they both want it to... But i must say that Orlando seems to be getting a lot of days off. ^^ Oh well all the better for Marissa aye.

Author's Response: Ahh yes well, he's not always needed and he DID have that first break because he wasn't in the right head space but I don't think he'll have too many more days off. Thanks for the comment and I'm thinking that it IS only a matter of time before something happens between them.

Title: Chapter 24: Chapter Twenty-One: For Everything There Is A Season Reviewer: MidnightShadows Signed
Awe they finally did it...and not to sound cheezy but it was like a fary tale kind of coupling..I have high hopes for them in the future. Wait hang on. Some how I don't think that a condom was used. Shock horror. Hmmm something might happen there, but then again something might not. Your the master here.

Author's Response: Hmmm, good point; the whole heat of the moment thing kinda got away from me there; and them too it seems. Will something come from that? Hmmm, odds are not from her second time but then again, it only takes once...
