OMGAH. WHY ARE YOU SO INTERESTING?
I mean, why is this story so interesting... but since you're the one writing, I'm sure you're just as interesting. You're awesome for this. I am literally on the edge of my seat... well actually not really, I'm at the back of my seat, I'm trying to fix my bad posture these days by leaning against the seat rest instead of looking like I'm about to fall out the chair by sitting on the edge, but if I wasn't, I assure you right now, I'd be on the edge of my seat.
Now that, that run-on sentence is finished, OMGAH THIS IS SO FRIGGIN CRAZY! And at the end of every chapter, there's always some crazy, nutty thing to figure out. It's just so great. I mean, I'm starting to think that Zeke Wrigley's life is a lot more interesting than Zeke Liam's.
And I'm pretty sure what he did to Anthony was kiss him... I'm pretty sure. Or maybe he admitted to liking Zeke to him.
Who bloody knows? I just wish you'd update! :)
Pretty please update soon. Come back to life & update soon, I think we might have to start a petition soon if you don't. Haha... really though. T_T pllease.
PS. I LOVE YOU! :D

Aah, man, this story gets more interesting with each chapter. It's amazing how dramatic, yet normal it is at the same time. It's all believable and so friggin' crazy! Everyone's lives are so tangled and I just love how everyone relates to one another. It seems planned but random at the same time, the things that happen..
Anyway, the computer just turned off randomly and I had to refind which chapter I was on, so I figured I should review so I could find my spot later. Doing you & I a favour. :)

Yes, keep it long!
Even longer than this is if possible, I do hate short things. It's always too abrupt.
Haha, although I do think this advice is a tad late... :P

Are...are you going to finish this?
Because it is seriously happy :)
...happy is just my word for everything I like, zeke is actually kind of depressing...But I loves it. ]
| i-wish-i-had-wings 10/2/09 . chapter 11
if i had been a little stronger emotionally i would have loved to read this whole story. but since i'm not and i'm starting to feel depressed, i'll stop here on chapter 11.
i love the way you've written this, it's deep and real. too real for me P

Psh. It's probably his father or something like that. Ew.
| kazoua 8/28/09 . chapter 10
Zeke has such... depressing thoughts.
| kazoua 8/28/09 . chapter 5
I'm sorry. I just have to mention I'm one of those fools who have an intense amount of home town pride.
SAN DIEGO for LIFE!

Right now, I'd really prefer Charlie over Zeke W.
I don't know.. he's turning into an ass and Charlie's turning back from an ass.
And gosh, the drama!

I am totally about to read this JUST BECAUSE your summary had a Catherine the Great quote in it. I hope you realize just how awesome this makes you. And if you don't than that's just awful.
As for the fic itself: I'm finding it enjoyable but you should definitely get someone to beta it for you because you have some icky spelling/typo/grammar mistakes which can be a real turn off in any story.
Also, the dialogue is a bit awkward at times. It just reads off as a bit weird, or rather, too forced perhaps. The relationship between Zeke and Sam is nice but you're imposing it onto the reader and making it really touchy without a strong explanation or any backup really as to why they're so bff. I mean, I'm not saying they shouldn't be but if you're going to make them touchy and bff just don't impose it or throw it out the way you do. The dialogue in the first chapter between her and Zeke where he goes all deep and whatnot also irked me. Let's face it: no one does that in real life. And if they do, I've never come in contact with it regardless of how bff you are.
Sorry...I'm sounding all harsh and whatnot aren't I? But to be honest, I like your style in writing and you have great potential but again, the dialogue and relationships are so forced it's unappealing. I loved what you did with Charlie and Zeke though. People always start stories with the guy finding out he's gay but it's established here and not only that, it's established through a previous relationship. Lovely.
Another thing I didn't like though: You're trying to make everything sound deep and reflective or whatever but that's not something you can just write. That's not going to make the story beautiful. What's going to make it beautiful is if you drive your plot, stop making Zeke be emo and quit with the insightful-ness, thanks.
On a happier note: I still want to read on because your narrative aside from the inner monologues of unrealistic is good. You have some witty phrases and some catchy sentences. But seriously, get a beta. Please.

Interesting story, really, I like the character development and the strange things the Zeke's tend to think. Also the changing between Liam and the other Zeke (no, I don't remember his last name right now) is nice. There are some errors in your writing, though - verbs missing etc, and that disturbs me a bit. Not enough to keep me from reading this story, bu enough to disturb me.
But, I still like the plot and everything. Do write more.
| neeree 8/18/08 . chapter 40
Interesting story with one of the most complex twisted plot lines I have ever seen(which is good).
I have one question...why did you make them both named Zeke...I mean its confusing and their name can't even be shortened. And even though its cute and w/e to think of two Zekes together...its still complicated. You could have just as easily made them childhood friends who were separated or just family friends or just two guys meeting b/c of their parents.
