Iove your writings oh so much! I love it sooo much! Such a nice and peaceful ending! I love this story so much. Great writing and amazing story :) I need a new word for this amazing story!
Author's responseThank you soooooo much; I am sooooo pleased that you liked this! I'm glad that you think the ending was nice and peaceful, I thought that it was the least that I owed poor old Mikey. Words really can't describe how lovely your review has made me feel!
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a kind review!
Thank you sooooo much; I'm really happy that you enjoyed this story, it honestly does mean a lot to hear something like that!
I'm glad that you think Gerard's apology was alright, I was really worried that it was rushed/out of place, so you really have reassured me on that one.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a nice review! :)
I cry here. But it is a good thing! Because it tells about how wonderful the story was. How wonderful the writing was. How did you get those feelings so vividly written.. amazing!
I have to admit that it is sad to see this story to come to an end. But I like how it ended. It was a touching and hopeful. How it all started to look better towards the future. I liked it very much. :)
You're such a good writer.
Thank you for this reading experience!
Author's responseSorry that it made you cry, but thank you very much; I'm really pleased that you think this story was alright!
I'm relieved that you liked how this ended, I really wasn't sure about how ended (if it wsa too rushed or if it didn't fit or whatever) so to hear that you liked how it ended is really motivating.
Thank you sooooooo much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! :)
(#) KobraBlaze 2012-01-15This was such a great story. I've read the whole thing over a few times now and I can't get enough of it. This last chapter when Gerard apologises made me cry. It was just so sweet. And when Mikey asked for some food, it was just the best thing ever. I don't know what else to say because it's just one of those stories that are indescribable. I find it sad that it's finished but I'm happy that it ended with a great finish. I can't wait for your next story. I'm sure it will be just as brilliant as this! Thank you for writing wonderful stories for us!
Author's responseThank you vey much; I'm extremely pleased that you think this story is alright!
I was really worried that this story got boring, so to hear that you've read it through more than once really does sound amazing to me! I'm so sorry that it made you cry. With Mikey asking for food I wanted to show that things were at least getting better, so I hope that came across.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a kind review! :)

I can't tell you how much i've enjoyed this story, I'm sad that it's over too but atleast it had a happy ending for everyone involved. I literally cried at Gerard's apology, it was beautiful :') I love the characters in this story so much, they were all just perfect. Keep on writing, I'll definetly be looking forward to more of your work!
Author's responseThank you very much; I'm very pleased that you enjoyed this story, to hear something like that really is uplifting!
I'm happy that you liked the characters, I wasn't too sure about them (Gerard and Pete in particular) so to hear that you liked them really does mean a lot!
Thank you sooo much for taking the time to leave such a nice review! :)
(#) tortillachip 2012-01-15You're talking nonsense. This couldn't be any more amazing if it tried!!! This was a fabulous story, and I loved it to pieces. All the ups and downs. All the regret and love and cruelty. That is what makes this one of the best stories I've ever read. And you're writing is vivid and descriptive and emotional, all things that writing should be. I don't know why you worry so much about this and that, I think you have such an amazing skill and talent and you really know how to create all these different emotions in a reader, but I guess that worry and doubt will always be there when you're as good a writer as you are. If there was ever a time that I felt so sad to see a fic go, it is nothing compared to this. But at least I can see more of your writing and that makes me not so sad. The ending was fabulous. It couldn't go on forever, and I thought this was a really smart way to end it. It's just enough to let us know that Gerard probably won't say anything mean to Mikey again and that they'll patch things up. For real this time and with real effort. Not too quickly, but at a speed that is reasonable for both Gerard and Mikey. And Pete and Frank will be there to help. Frank really is a miracle worker. He's been there for a lot and he knows that they don't always do things like brothers should and he really knows what to do to make them better. And Pete will now be there to learn from him. I really liked that Gerard got to see Pete kiss Mikey before, and it's really nice that this time he let's them have their moment without yelling nasty things at him.
I'm kind of proud of both Gerard and Mikey. Gerard for apologizing and really getting through to Mikey, and Mikey for not stuttering and even asking for food. Those things really do let us know that they're going to do much better. And third time really is the charm. At first, Gerard was going to confront him about their mother's birthday, which I like to believe would have led to him apologizing about not coming to him in the first place and he sees Mikey and Pete in a curious situation and Mikey is called horrendous names by his own brother. Next, when Pete and Mikey come back so Pete can be reintroduced and he can see how good he is for Mikey and possibly apologize for being such a jerk, he once again calls Mikey names, which leads us to where we are now. Gerard has been gone for three and when be comes back, for a third try at apologizing correctly, he gets it right this time. That's what I mean by third time's the charm. And I really liked that Gerard really got to think about where he and Mikey stand now and where they stood in the past. Their lives are separated into before and after abuse. After he said all those things about Mikey he'd briefly think about how distant they've become, but now he knows that they barely even know each other anymore, and he's really going to work to make them better this time. I loved that feeling I got whenever I finished a chapter and I'd be all excited and I couldn't wait to see what was put up next, even if sometimes I wasn't looking forward to the day itself. I'm glad I got to go along for the ride with this. I really love your writing and this story. They're both terrific and wonderful and just beautiful and I'll definitely be sure to read "Guardian Ghost" as well. This was just amazing. I love it.
Author's responseAw, wow, THANK YOU soooo much! I'm so pleased that you liked this story, it really does mean a lot to me! I honestly don't know what I can say to make you see how grateful I am that you'd take the time to leave such a detailed and lovely review, it really is overwhelming!
Your interpretation is spot on! I really wanted to show that, whilst things are definitely better after Gerard's apology, they still have work to do if they're going to heal but they will get there, slowly and at a pace that suits them. Frank is pretty much a god and Pete and Gerard can learn from him about how to help Mikey. I'm relieved that you liked the kiss, I really wasn't sure if it seemed out of place, so to hear that you liked it is really encouraging!
I wanted the whole Mikey-asking-for-food thing to show that things are definitely looking up for them, that things can definitely get better so I hope that came across. I see what you mean about the third time is the charm, it wasn't inteded but now that you mention it three has been a bit of a lucky number. Gerard really will be trying harder this time, definitely.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to leave such a lovely and detailed review; it really does motivate me to write! :)
(#) kathlikestoread 2012-01-15I've been too lazy to get an account for a while but I finally did because I wanted to say how good this story is. At the end of almost every chapter, I mentally shouted "No!" out of fear for whatever drama was about to unfold but at the end of this chapter, I mentally shouted because, no matter how happy you made the ending, I'm sad that the story is over. I love how you'd describe each characters' feelings with amazing analogies. Now that this is over, I'm going to switch to checking every few hours for an update to "Guardian Ghost" instead. Thank you for giving us these awesome stories!
Author's responseWow, thank you soooo much; I'm reallly happy that you think this story is alright!
I'm kinda sad that this story is over too, I really did enjoy writing the majority of it so it will be sad to see the back of it. I'm glad that you liked the analogies; I was worried that they got boring, so it's really nice to hear that you liked them!
Thank you soooo much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! :)
(#) youcanstakemyheart 2012-01-15WHOA!! IT'S OVER!! ohmygod. That was so sadorable. But I loved it! could you maybe do like a one chapter prologue thingy? Like just to show how everything ended up working out? Also, who was going to be dead by now? Gerard? Okay. Whatever. Thanks for the wonderful writing!Please write some new stuff soon!
Author's responseThank you very much; I'm sooooo happy that you liked it!
I'll try to get around to doing an epilogue, but I can't promise anything. Yeah, it was Gerard; I was gonna have him die drink-driving, but I just couldn't do that him.
Thank you soooo much for taking the time to review!
(#) fearsgottahold 2012-01-16OH MY LORD. I am crying. Actually crying my eyes out. That was the most beautiful ending ever and it was completely perfect. I'm so glad you managed to finally make Gerard make up with Mikey, and I'm so glad that everyone managed to stay together in this fic, because any of them dying/breaking up would have been to much for me to handle. You managed to put waaay more dialogue in this chapter, which was completely fantastic, and all in all it was one of the best things I have ever read on this site. So thank you, thank you so more for being the source of my amusement (figuratively speaking, some of that stuff was so sad) and I'm so going to read the prologue to your story right now!
Yep. Okay, I think I've said it all. Your amazing. Okay. Thank you so much, goodbye x
Author's responseI'm really sorry that this made you cry!
Thank you very much; I am so pleased that you think the ending was alright!
The original plan was to kill off Gerard but I just couldn't bring myself to do it, so I'm glad that you're glad that nobody died! I really did try with the whole dialogue thing, so it's really uplifting to hear that you think it was alright!
Thank you so very much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! :)
