(#) Give-emHellKid 2008-07-08Wow it's like 2:52am an i was planning to go to bed before i started reading this an i just couldn't stop... i think its safe to say it's one of the best one-shots i've EVER read,
you're a terrific writer, and i never realised you were the writer of Soul Purpose until i read it at the bottom cos i luv dat story too!
anyway i'm nackered an my eyes are killing (they were literally glued to the screen lol) so im gonna stop talkin now... but seriously, great story =]
Author's responseHeeee, I'm sorry I stole from your sleep :P Thank you so very much for all the compliments, they make me blush!!
I'm glad you like Soul Purpose, too. Because it's my first story and I can't believe it turned out to be so long, I don't know when it's gonna come to an end!
Thanks again =)
- Oh God, that story was so beautiful.
It's probably the best one-shot I've ever read on ficwad.
I loved everything about it. I loved how you made Gerard use Mikey's middle name and Frank use his own. And I also liked how, even though Frank was younger, he seemed like the older of the two. The flashback was really beautiful-that's when I started to cry.
My favourite part of it though, was the way you described Gerard, it was absolutely perfect. It's exactly how I would've described him if I could write that well. And Franks description was good too.
Beautiful story, made me cry. Well done.
Author's responseHeee, thankieeesss!!
I just love that you shared your favorite parts of the story with me, it makes me even happier! Actually I was gonna make Frank use some other name because his middle name was kinda shouting "I'm Frank, you idiot!" but nothing really came to my mind and I stuck with it ;)
And since I like looking at Gerard, just plain admiring him for long periods of time, I like describing him very much! So I'm glad you like my description of him, hehee =)
(#) harlequingirl-x 2008-07-11'tis very good!
Gerard for some really strange reasoon made me laugh at the fact that he couldnt kiss anyone, it was so sweet, but in te end he puts a males anatomy in his mouth, so how does that work LOL
dontworry bout it tho cause u are very gifted! it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G
Author's responseThank you!
Actually, Gerard could kiss anyone he wanted to but he chooses not to. And there really isn't any practical or logical reason he does so. So I guess, it's kinda understandable that he made you laugh. But the idea behind him not kissing customers is that he thinks kissing someone is something very innocent and intimate to be shared with total strangers. And since Frank's pure childish loving yet passionate kiss is the last kiss he has experienced, he wants to keep it locked away in his heart forever, he doesn't want the taste of any other person's kiss to wash it away and turn it into a fading memory. It's the only relatively "clean" part of him he cherishes. It's the "thing" he holds onto, whereas Frank thinks he, himself, has lost everything he could hold on to and thus decides to end his life. And yes, Gerard blows people but it's just instant meaningless gratification he gives away for money, to be able to stay alive. It has nothing to do with emotions.
I hope I could explain it better to you than I did in the story... Though I guess I kinda revealed whatever there was in "between the lines", but it's okay...
(#) IeroMyHero 2008-08-05God. Did I review this before? I don't care if I did, because I don't remember reading this whole thing, word for word until now.
This story was just...beautiful. Perfection in the form of writing, and I mean that. The way you described everthing was just...awesome. Couldn't have been better. And I don't know, maybe this changed me a little. I really am at a loss for words. Damn, I wanted to give you a good review, but this is all I can muster up. I'm sorry. I cried though. I cried really hard while reading this, it was like a complete breakdown, and that is a very rare occurance. So you should be proud for knocking some empathy into an asshole-ish brain like mine. ; ]
Cryssie (yeah I kinda like it too...it's pretty sounding.)
Author's responseI don't think you reviewed this before but I'm glad you did now =) It'd been a while since this story got reviewed and I started smiling when I saw it was you.
Thanks so much. I'm kinda fond of this story because it's my first Frerard and (still) has this weird power over me and my emotions. So I'm glad it touched you like that - I actually cried hard while writing some parts so that I had to stop typing because I couldn't see the screen. And your brain's not asshole-ish =) I just think you have a really tough shell. That's how I am, too - maybe except here :P
Hee, love you too!
P.S. Yep. It's pretty sounding.
(#) XxCRYSTALLINExX 2008-09-04Awww! This is one of the best oneshots I've read in a long time. It was full of thoughtfulness(?!) and I will definitely be looking out for more stuff by you. Favourited+rated:)
Author's responseHeeey thank you =) You might wanna check out my current Frerard-in-progress. It's called Was It A Dream? And now I'm a bit embarrassed that I'm advertising...
