Review for Perfectly Imperfect

Perfectly Imperfect

(#) GallonsOfBlood 2011-12-30

Umm... What else to say? I love you! And as a sequel it has all the right elements. You can see how much happier Mikey is, but then there are those moments when you can see his thoughts briefly return to the past. And in Pete's point of view you can spot how similar Frank and Pete are, and how negative everyone's thoughts towards Gerard are, so I can't wait to see how Pete and Gerard react to each other. I can imagine Gerard being really protective and not wanting Mikey to get involved with someone who could easily hurt him, and I'm not sure about Pete and Frank. Hopefully they'll get along and help Gerard see sense together, but Frank might be a bit hesitant at first.

Anyway, I should stop writing your story for you and just read! You're doing great and your writing really is brilliant.

Thank you very much; I'm relieved that you think this is an right sequel. I've never done a sequel before and I wanted to do it right, so it's really reassuring to know that you think it's alright!
I wanted Pete to come across as simillar in the respect that they both care about Mikey and that they both want to protect about him, but for Pete to be different in that he is in love with Mikey and that his need to provide protection is almost fierce.
I'm looking forward to writing the chapter where Pete and Gee meet... Poor Mikey might want to buy himself some earplugs....
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a friendly and detailed review; it really does help! :)
