"I can do this." Read, review, rate and feel my love! :P
- aw WOWOWOWOWOWOOW this is too cute but i can't believe it's over this is such an amazing story! by far one of the best i've read! can't wait for any more you'll be doing :DD xx
Author's responseThank you very much; I'm soooo pleased that you thought this story went okay!
I normally write one-shots (usually Frikey), so I'll probably go back to that now that this is over.
Thank you soooo much for taking the time to leave such a nice review; it really does mean a lot! :)
(#) tortillachip 2011-12-23 03:38:37 PMThis was great! And this chapter was supposed to give you a clue about what things are like now for Mikey and Gerard and Frank, you're not really supposed to get too much information out of them, and this had just the right amount of information. I liked the Pete Wentz appearance, and I liked what he said to Mikey, that he couldn't forget that face. Mikey was always that kid that never really stood out unless his face was littered with bruises and cuts or he spoke and you heard his stutter. To hear that someone who had just met him thought that his face would be memorable must have been mind blowing to him. I also liked how you chose to get all of the information out. It wasn't just stated up front, you put a little bit of information between each change in Mikey's life. I thought it was wise to do this in Mikey's point of view. It would've seemed different if it was written in someone else's and it wouldn't really be a happy chapter, just one that lets you know how things changed. I'm glad something good happened to Mikey in this chapter. While I didn't like seeing him get hurt, it was really interesting to see his thought process before he did it and it was also interesting to see how Gerard and Frank reacted to things. There were so many twists and turns throughout the story. I loved this so much, and though I didn't comment on some chapters, I loved them as well. This whole story was so beautiful and well written. It was done in such a way that made your readers a little too caught up in the story. It was at the point that you would worry about Mikey and what Gerard would say to him. You sort of forgot that it was just a story. Only great writers can achieve that. I can't believe this is actually over. It was so great to watch all of the things that happened in this story. I love this so much, and I hope to see more writing from you. It feels like I'm writing a goodbye note to you about this story, not just a review. Well, I loved this so much. This chapter and this story. It's the best I've ever seen. I hope to see more writing from you. Great job doesn't have a place in this review, and great doesn't express how fabulous this is, so I will just end this now.
Author's responseThank you sooo much; not just for being lovely about this chapter, but for being so encouragingly kind about pretty much everything that I write - it really does mean a lot!
I'm relieved that you thought the amount of information was right, I was worried that it wasn't detailed enough/too much information and not enough explanation. I'm pleased that you liked the appearence of Pete Wentz; I've been wanting to do some Pikey for a while now and so this was my first attempt; I'm glad that you think it went(z) alright! I really wanted to make it feel like Mikey would be alright because, whilst the story has left him, he has Pete now; a perfect stranger more than willing to be nice to him because that's the kind of person he is. So I hope that that came across alright.
I couldn't not make something nice happen to Mikey, it's like the first wholly nice thing to happen to him in over thirty chapters. I was starting to feel kinda guilty, so I decided to bless him with the gift of Pete Wentz to make up for all the crap I've put him through. :P
Thank you so, so very extremely unspeakably much for being so nice about the rubbish I write; you really are too kind to me! I think that I'll probably go back to doing one-shots now that this is over. Most likely Frikeys, I might try doing a Pikey or two though.
THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH for taking the time to leave such a nice, friendly and detailed review; it really does mean a hell of a lot! :)
(#) SyraStrange 2011-12-23 04:58:02 PM:D YESH. Everything's alright with the world. If in the world there was a gay Mikey, openly public Frerard, and a bittersweet love triangle, that is. God, that would be such a nice world... Except for the gay Mikey thing; I freaking love Alicia. And we'd be fine without the love triangle. So in a alternate universe there would be Frerard. Yeah, that's my conclusion. xD I loved this story to bits... I can't believe it's over... T.T I hope I'll see some more of your stories traveling around this place! :3
Author's responseI agree whole-heartedly with your conclusion, but all of their wives are totally awesome (Lynz is one of heroes/inspirational people)!
Thank you soooo much; I'm really pleased that you liked this story! I can't really believe that it's over either, I thought it was never gonna end! I do feel kinda sad to be saying goodbye to it though... I'm sort of toying with the idea of doing a sequel... ?
Thank you very much or taking the time to review, just as you have done with every chapter in this thing; it really does mean soooo much! Thank you! :)
(#) asialovesrevenge 2011-12-23 07:18:00 PMthat was great, such a perfect ending! I love that Frank and Gerard are there with him when he starts school, it's cute, like they're a family :3 awesome job :D
Author's responseThank you very much for being so nice about this story; I'm soooo pleased that you liked it! I kinda wanted to portray them (Mikey, Gersrd and Frank) as having become some sort of family unit type thing, so I'm glad that came across. Thank you sooo much for taking the time to review; you've made me smile! :)
(#) youcanstakemyheart 2011-12-23 08:57:37 PMyay! happy ending! didn't see that coming though...i figured someone would be dead by the end.
Author's responseI'm not gonna lie; I thought someone would be dead by the end as well. But I just couldn't kill any
of them, maybe it's the Xmas spirit getting to me or something, but I just couldn't bring myself to kill Mikey or Gerard (as I had originally planned). I just couldn't do it.
I'm glad you thought that the ending was happy, I wanted it to go out on a high note! Thanks for taking the time to review! :)
- my god
It's 2am and I'm so happy I just wanna run around my house screaming.
I think I said that in a previous review too...
Probably still not a good idea.
Mikey (and Pete :DD) and Gerard and Frank live happily ever after :3
As for the last chapter (previous one)I totally thought Gerard was gonna flip but he collapsed into tears and I just sat there yelling PRAISE JESUS
None of this is really critiquing your writing but OH WELL I'M TOO HAPPY.
Your writing isn't crap, it's much much better than crap. It's vivid and thorough and detailed and real and I love it :]
Seriously though, your stories make up for all of the shit I read. You use DESCRIPTIVE ADJECTIVES AND ADVERBS. You don't just say dark or slow. And that makes me happy.
Oh and it's grammatically correct.
None of that is really important but AHHH.
I'M JUST SO HAPPY THAT MIKEY'S HAPPY AND LIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL THING ;u;
Author's responseAww, thanks! This review genuinely has me grinning from ear to ear! :D
I'm glad that you liked the Pikey element, I've never written that pairing before and have wanted to for a loooooong time, so I hope it worked alright.
I'm really pleased that this made you happy; that's all I ever really wanted to acheive with this (even though the majority of the chapters are quite depressing).
Thank you very much for saying such nice things about my writing, it really does make me smile and wanna write!
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! :)
(#) CatscanFlyy 2011-12-24 01:16:41 AMYAAAAAAAY~ PETE C: This pleases me! This was such a nice happy ending! And I hate using the word nice but what evs it's too early my mind = mush I'm gonna miss this fic >-< SO YOU'D BETTER WRITE A NEW ONE SOON kay? ^-^
Author's responseI'm glad that this pleased you; I wasn't sure if people would like the addition of the Almighty Pete Wentz, so it's reassuring to know that you like this!
I think that now this is over I'll probably go back to writing one-shots (most likely Frikey, maybe some Pikey as it's a pairing I've only ever used in this story). I'm kinda thinking about doing a sequel to this story at some point in the new year, maybe an overprotective Gerard not liking the look of Pete (Frerard and Pikey)... I dunno though, so it may or may not happen.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review! :)
- just reading your response (^) and wow a sequel would be amazing!! I so hope it happens it'd be great to find out how Mikey and Gerard hold up with Pete around :DD xx
Author's responseThanks, it's good to know that you'd read a sequel should one appear. I've been thinking about it and an overprotective Gerard meeting Pete would be a lot of fun to write and a lot less depressing (in theory) than this story. So I think that I probably will get to work on one in the new year. Thanks for taking the time to tell me what you think! :)
(#) DisenchantedEnding 2011-12-25 11:38:03 AMI just read this whole story and it's so beautiful:)
It's got such a beautiful start and a beautiful end, with interesting dialogue and climax. It's just great! I love how you ended it and how Frank found Mikey and.. everything.
It's great. Really well done. :)
I don't really have much to say at the moment haha, sorry. But it was really good. :)
Author's responseAwww, thank you sooooo much! I'm super pleased that you thought this story was alright and that it was interesting; I was really worried that it was kinda dull/boring, so it's really uplifitng to know that you found it interesting.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review; it really does mean a lot! Merry Xmas!!! :D
(#) DisenchantedEnding 2011-12-25 02:30:59 PMAww haha, I'm glad it uplifted you so much? May I ask why? Just nice to hear things being said? :)
But yeah, no.. I love your writing style and description. It's really detailed and lovely, seriously. :)
Author's responseI found it uplifting because I'm at the point in my life where people are telling me that I have to decide what I want I want to do with my life, for me that thing is writing; so for someone to take the time to review what I write and to be nice about it really does mean a lot. So thank you! :D
