(#) youcanstakemyheart 2012-01-14If Gerard screws this up again...which he probably will, because I vaguely remember you mentioning that the ending would be kind of sad, so I'm gonna guess that he does screw it up and it involves Frank, and that they break up or something. Once again, sadorable. That word really needs to be added to the dictionary. I love this story, you're a great writer. Please update soon!
Author's responseI like your idea about what could happen, but sadly that is not the case. I kind of tweaked the ending a little bit (I have it planned) so that it wouldn't be as much of a downer as I had originally planned. Originally, someone (who shall remain nameless) was dead by this point in the story but I just couldn't kill anyone off, so the ending probably won't be as depresing as anticipated.
Thank you very much, it really means a lot to know that you like this story!
I'll update later today.
Thank you soooo much for taking the time to review! :)
(#) TheDisenchanter91080 2012-01-14I love it! :) amazing!! I have to say I love this story and don't ever want it to end! But I hope it has a happy ending and one suggestion you should write a Bikey chaptered story. I have read some of you Bikey oneshots and they are amazing! I don't know why but I love Bikey because Bobs all protect of Mikey and it's ssoo cute! I mean you dot have to do it if you don't want to. Just a suggestion :) I love it though can't wait for another update!
Author's responseThank you very much; I'm really pleased that you like it!
I love your suggestion of a chaptered Bikey, I've only ever used that pairing in two one-shots so it would be cool to use it in a chaptered story. I have already started work on a chaptered Frikey (Guardian Ghost), so the chaptered Bikey may take some time. But there is a great chaptered Bikey going on at the moment by another on here called "Save me.", it has a protective Bob in it and it is awesome; you should definitely check it out.
I'll try to update later today.
Thank you sooooo much for taking the time to review! :)
(#) tortillachip 2012-01-14This did not suck at all. I really liked this. I'm glad that Frank was finally able to get a hold of Gerard. Now I just can't wait to see what happens when Gerard actually gets back. Anyway, I really liked that it was in Frank's point of view. Frank is always the sensible one that fixes everything, but it makes you wonder how he deals with all the things that are in need of fixing. I liked that you get to see a side of Gerard that is afraid for once. He doesn't believe any of the stuff he says, no matter how many times he says it and how much it may seem as if he really does believe it. He's really just afraid that Mikey is slipping from him and won't need him anymore. Maybe he feels like he's losing Mikey to Pete and that's why he hates him so much, he knows deep down that Mikey is a smart kid and would not even look at anyone who he suspects is a danger. He somehow knows who's not good to hang around, and Gerard knows this, so he knows Pete isn't a bad person and that he can't hold the kissing against him forever. It's like now that Pete is in the picture he isn't as important anymore, and he's afraid of Mikey not thinking he is important. They both want to be good brothers to each other. It was really sad to see Gerard so open with all his true emotions, even if it was just through a phone call, but at the same time I was glad to see him opening up and not bottling everything up so that it all explodes in such a terrible way. Gerard really does want the best for Mikey, and it seems as if he's starting to accept that Pete is what is best for Mikey. It seems like he's always believed it, knew it when Mikey spoke back to him when he punched Pete, but he never wanted to and just kinda pushed it to the back of his mind. I really like Gerard in this chapter. I also really like that Frank accepted that he had to tell the complete truth in order to help Gerard understand where he and Mikey stand right now. Frank knows better than anyone where they stand because he's seen Mikey through this and he is now seeing Gerard through it and he knows they can't survive without each other. He had to tell Gerard that he's not what Mikey needs. Mikey doesn't need a parent, he needs a brother, and that's what Gerard needs to be. What he can be and what Frank can tell he wants to be. I really, really liked this chapter. It was so amazing and it was really beautiful. There were so many interesting things shown about Gerard and how he really feels. This chapter was fabulous. Great job!!! Also, I would love to see what else happens in this story and how it ends. I am also looking forward to that new Frikey fic. Anyway, I really, truly loved this.
Author's responseThank you very much; I'm relieved that you think this didn't suck and that you liked it!
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! :)
(#) KobraBlaze 2012-01-14Yay. This is so good. I hope Gerard isn't too late to save Mikey. Mikey really does believe he is nothing anymore. I can't wait to see what happens between them. Update when you can
Author's responseThank you very much,I'm really glad that you think this is alright!
I'll try to update today.
Thank you sooo much for taking the time to review! :)
(#) asialovesrevenge 2012-01-14Your writing honestly leaves me speechless sometimes. (Not that I was actually speaking to begin with, but you know what I mean XD) It's so descriptive without being overloaded with unnecessary adjectives that it's pretty much perfect, I really love reading it. And this story is one of the greatest I've ever read, fanfic or otherwise. I'm so happy things are looking up. Gee better sober up and make Mikey smile or I'll karate chop him into little pieces xD Keep up the awesome work, I'm excited for more!
Author's responseWow, thank you so very much! I'm really pleased that you like my writing! I was really worried that the way I write gets really off topic and dull, so to hear that you like reading it really does mean a hell of a lot!
I really can't describe how grateful I am for such a lovely, uplifting review; you've got me smiling like a wildthing! :)
(#) GallonsOfBlood 2012-01-15This was amazing. Again I felt so sorry for Frank, having to cope with his boyfriend being such a mess. But Gerard. Oh Gerard. I can't express how relieved I was when he finally came around and accepted everything. We can only hope that he knows how to be a big brother when he goes back to Mikey, and that Mikey can recover from everything.
Author's responseThank you very much; I'm soooo glad that you think this chapter went alright!
I wanted there to be some sort of sympathy created towards Frank and what he has to put up with in this, so I'm pleased that came across.
You are right; we can but hope.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review! :)
