Tell the truth-it really helped you.
(#) AdnarimSmada 2011-06-22 04:52:09 PMI have to say Lorna, you know that feeling you experience when you first read a really good book? That's how I feel everytime I read a chapter of this story. To say this is high quality work is an understatement. This is amazing, beautiful, pure artistry. You are a writer.
As for the next chapter: sounds like it's going to be a good one. As usual.
- Even though there are no AN in this, you still get her snide little comments. I wish I could have met her, and me being the nerd that I am I would so ask for her autograph and beg her to say her name lol. I can't wait to read this whole thing!
(#) AlteredStateOfMind 2012-06-22 12:55:13 PMI'm re-reading this story for the second time 'cause it's just so freaking amazing, but I noticed something the last time I read it and it's kinda bugging me.
"You're mine now-if someone offers to kiss your knuckles, please say no." He paused and regarded the twenty two year old. "I am of Catholic faith, as you may have guessed, and I believe in abstaining from sexual intercourse before marriage. James...may not have agreed with me."
Frank nodded, a tad ashamed. He imagined what making love with this person would be like; he blushed bright pink and shook the thought from his head.
"No," he whispered. "He took me a long time ago."
Gerard nodded. "I see." He sucked at Frank's neck lovingly. "No matter. You'll be mine when we get married."
Okay, so, Frank's saying in that bit that he's not a virgin, right? I don't know if I'm missreading those lines or what, but in later chapters Frank says he is a virgin (apart from oral sex and whatnot) and that Gerard is the first person he properly slept with. Was that an error? Someone clarrify, please :s
Author's responseUm, I'm really sorry, I don't write the story, I just upload it. Maybe it was an error (?) Maybe he lied? Idk, I'm really sorry.
Um, I found this in Lorna's tumblr when talking about FOTG:
'I kinda made Frank lie in the beginning because he was shy & shiz....he wanted to be good for Gerard or something and then in the middle he's like oh yeah btw I've done the nasty and stuff...dunno my mind works weird'
Maybe that's an okayish explaination? Sorry again, I must sound like an arse.
(#) AlteredStateOfMind 2012-06-22 01:32:20 PMYeah I know you don't, don't worry it's not like I need some huge explination xD I was just wondering if I was the one not understanding what Frank was saying.
Either way this fic is one of the best I've ever read. The virginity thing doesn't really affect the plot or anything, I was just wondering.
Thanks for answering :)
(#) SeeYouInHellKid 2012-08-20 05:17:58 AMhi? i guess... so i read FOTGTD i think like last year (idk it was snowing in Chicago) which was i think the first fan-fic story i read, LEGENDARY.
well you never forget your first fan-fic story, right? but i was pretty sure it was written somewhat differently, same plot though.
i'm trying not to sound like some know-it-all-creeper but when i first read it didn't Gerard say something like due to Romano's strict religious beliefs i presume you're still a virgin? and frank just nods yes. then later we find out, well i don't want to say but, no, per say?
was the story edited? was this asked before? am i overthinking this? should i just enjoy the story? too many damn questions? O-o
Author's responseNo, it's perfectly okay to ask questions. Yes, this particular one was asked before-I found a newly edited version of FOTG in like March and I decided to upload it; that's why some of the chapters are slightly different now. Since I'm not uploading Lorna's stuff on here anymore, I will no longer be uploading the new edits.
Tbh, you'd be better off asking Lorna herself about the whole 'virgin-or-not' thing, because I can't really speak for her.
