Review for Perfectly Imperfect
(#) tortillachip 2012-01-14 05:09:38 PM
I was torn between doing this in Gerard's or Frank's POV, I wasn't sure if by using Frank it would take away from the (attempted) portrayal of Gerard's emotions, so it's a really good to know that you liked that was from Frank's view point. I wanted to show how Frank copes with pretty much being the Way brothers' relationship repairman, so I hope that came across.
Gerard never truly means any of the bad things he says to Mikey, he might mean them at the time but he never thinks them through enough to fully mean them (I hope that made sense). He is, like you said, afraid of losing Mikey and of Mikey not seeing him as the important perosn in his life that Gerard once was/wants to be. Your interpretation is spot on with what I was trying to get at; he resents Pete for making Mikey happy, for replacing a role that Gerard is constantly trying to fill. I doubt that even Gerard can hold a kiss against someone forever. The Way brothers are almost the same in this; they are both insecure, but in different ways, because they both just want to be good brothers.
I'm glad that you liked Gerard in this chapter, I thought that it was about time for me to not give people reasons to hate his character in this story.
I think that Frank knew he had to tell the truth to fix this because he'd tried sugar-coating it, he had tried being nice and nothing changed; the only way to deal with this was to shock Gerard into action. Also, like you said, Frank knows what's going on because he has seen this before and has seen Mikey's side to this in full.
I've posted the prologue to the new Frikey fic up, it's called Guardian Ghost and I will add more chapters to it once I've finished this story.
Thank you soooooo much for taking the time to leave such a friendly and helpful review! :)
