All right, I said I'd get around to this eventually, so here goes. *laughs* Even though mostly it's because Gmail is being an absolute WHORE and won't sign me in at all, and what am I supposed to do without email? Randomly surf the internet? Yes, right. No, I read FIC! And I mean... I -promised-. Sort of.
'Kay, beginning to end! You have the cutest, funniest author's notes/whatever they are and I don't understand a few of them, but it's just the sort of thing you understand because you -don't- understand it, like some song lyrics are just words that don't make sentences (or sense) yet describe a feeling? Yeah, you're like that, and I read them all, and they amuse me to heck. (You wrote this -for- someone? Ai! They are lu-cky.)
Then there's Brandon. Brandon is cute and sweet and awkward, and sometimes he seems a little jumpy because of the (little notes), but he's really not or anything, because that's the way people -think-. Like a million things all at once or just random little things you can't help, that just pop up and annoy you at the worst. possible. moments. Brandon's great because he's human, and wonderful, and his narrative is crazy shit but it makes him even MORE wonderful. I love the paragraph right after he calls Kalee 'Kale', because all right his logic's sort of on crack but it's exactly something that I would think of. He rambles. On. And on. But it's a good thing.
And the -scene- they're making in the diner! *more laughter* They're such great characters, and I can imagine being there with them, a few tables away and glancing surreptitously to find out WHAT the HELL is going on! Because their conversations are interesting yet oblique enough that you want to know yet you actually DO know (sort of.) All right, all right, I'm at the point where I'm not making any sense but I can (and will) blame YOU. Because good fic always has this effect on me and my ramble reviews are so much less coherent than yours... WHY does this only have four reviews, anyway? I guess nobody wants to sit through, um... was that 10,0 words? Okay, okay, I admit I have no idea. But it wasn't one of those "argh I can't believe I'm sitting through [#] words!" It was fast-pased and smooth and AMAZING, and it passed far too quickly. One-shots, I swear... *mumbles*
Now. There are so, so many cute hilarious snarky delicious lines I couldn't point them all out if I wanted to (except for copypasting the entire story which wouldn't do much good) and oh my goodness, girl, THIS is a scribble? THIS? This is... a small epic in slash fic form. This is like chocolate and rock music on sunny summer days. This is like finding out you've been accepted to the best college in the world without having to do any work. It's BRILLIANT. You don't just read it, you live in it, and the characters are so real. It's like you just happened to stumble in on them and can't bring yourself to look away. It's like, I want to be friends with them.
AND! It's present-tense. I only noticed this halfway through which is weird, because I usually notice the tenses immediately, and first person annoys me to all hell. But I didn't even notice! I BARELY noticed. It was too entertaining for me to care. And that, dear, deserves commendation. *bow*
And I LOVE Josh. I love how he could start so confident and sexy and then Brandon's there and he's like, "We go to the same college." I LOVE them. They're so great together. It's not forced or weird or anything, and you accept everything they're saying because it's just so... I dunno. Have I used "amazing" already? 'Cause that's the word I need to use. FUCK they're cute! Then Brandon's like "OMG STALKER" but he sort of enjoys it anyway.
And the ending. And the letter game. *grins* Y'know, I may just have to send you another e-mail, because I'm starting to get overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of GREATNESS. I mean, there's too much for me to comment on, and NOTHING I don't -love-, because even the confusing parts weren't even really confusing. (And the little quotes and interjections and minor details just added up and... guh.) I'm dazzled to an incredible degree, but I have NO stamina for continued reviewing. I wish they made Viagra for reviewing. And since I'm at it, maybe some Ex-Lax for the imagination.
And since I can't think of anything else exactly at the moment, I'll close this by saying I LOVED this and there's still so much more I need to say but can't figure out a way to, and I likely will get back around to this in the future and leave a decent review (honestly, I read it twice, and I still can't leave a decent review! You are winning at this by a long shot, m'dear.) Oh! And I loved how you listed the music you listened to at the end. *grin* I thought I was the only one who thought about doing that, but I'm glad you proved me wrong. I'll have downloading to do later, heh heh.
Love and cookies,
(The Inestimable) Dana
PS: ...you also win at character descriptions. *boggles* Wow, that's REALLY something I need to work on, and you're just... brilliant at it. Wah!

So I was looking for new fics to read and I came across this one in Nora's Favourites list. And I LOVED it. Like, love, love, loved it.
Brandon is hilarious. Kalee is annoying, but I'm so glad that she is otherwise Brandon never would have been conned into going up to the counter. Josh is sexy. Very sexy.
All in all, it was fantastic and I really, really enjoyed it.

Different from "Storm" but nonetheless amazing. And all the hotter. 8DD
"(Note the Double T, Mark of the Yaoi Fangirl.)"
Too true, too true. But hm, what to say, what to say... This story was just too amazing to praise in anything short of five paragraphs. But I'll find a way to make it shorter, for the sake of your sanity. My rambling isn't conducive to anyone's health. Well, this story was just... just... freakin' awesome. I love your characters. First Chris and Davis, now Brandon and Josh.. and let's not forget Kalee.
Ack! I totally sympathize with her; we practically have the same mind-set, and I'm probably just as annoying, as painful as it is to admit it. And my friends won't deny it. Yaoi is my life, next to music, writing, anime, and Kingdom Hearts. Okay, so it's a fifth of my life, but a big part nonetheless.
I think what I liked best about this story (aside from the amazing yaoi-ness) was the way you wrote it from Brandon's POV, with the little note-type-thoughts in parenthesis (if you know what I'm talking about). It just made the whole thing flow so much more nicer, and it wasn't at all monotonous, despite the somewhat long length. Though, I wouldn't have minded if it was longer ... hell, I probably wouldn't have minded if it had gone on forever! (Actually, that's an exaggeration, but you get what I mean). *sigh* Too bad it's merely a one-shot.
But an awesome one-shot it was! It was funny and light, and cute (and hott, as I mentioned above), and I loved it. Oh... damn, there was something else I was gonna say, but it just fled my mind. Hm...
Ah! I remember. You scared me when you revealed that Josh was a stalker. For a minute, I feared it would end with some sort of dramatic or angsty twist, something along the lines of Brandon rejecting him or freaking out and running away... but it didn't. It ended beautifully, and Josh's stalker-ness was, in effect, adorable. Poor baby, just waiting for that one guy to notice him... for three years. o.o;;
Anyway, you are one of my newest favorite authors. *checks all the boxes below the window*

haha! This story deserves more reviews, its very funny. Your scribbles are really amusing, and for some odd reason, i'm reading it again and again. Fav list.

Ek! (No, I really did squeal). I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I want to have your children I love you you can have my virginity I love you I love you marry me I love you and your sexy pants! SO. MUCH. LOVE.
Okay. Calmed down now and ready to review.
(“He wants you.”) First thing- that totally captures my attention. Great starter.
(“Sorry,” I smirk. “I have a neck problem.”) Mah! I love him already. He is such a smart ass.
(She has this weird habit of drinking everything as if it’s Chivas Regal. Rolls in her mouth and everything. Freaky.) Wow, I really love that little detail right there. I can picture her doing it.
Haha! I love the scenarios. My favorite was the groupie hug one. He is such a snarky bastard- I love it!
(A pause (because my IQ is 180, ya). “So shut up,” pointing at her chest.) I love how he ends with that. So shut up! That is so like how people really talk nowadays, it isn't even funny, except it is. I laughed.
(sans brain) Oh my god I know what this means yeah! No, I don't take Latin, but my history teacher is also the Latin teacher. I know what 'sans-cullotes' means, and that means without pants, so I'm guessing 'sans brain' means without brain! Nora:1 Latin: A big fucking 0. I love it when I feel smart.
(just wants to tie you down on the counter and slam it up until you scream) Kalee is such a preppy girl version of Brandy! She cracks me up. I see a bit of Dani in her too, you know? (or maybe she's her own unique self. duh. i just like comparing my characters with other's) She is like... the best of both worlds!
(“You man bitch.”) I don't know why strange profanity amuses me, but it does. Man bitch. I don't think I'm gonna forget that one anytime soon! Heehee. Man bitch.
I love how you have Brannie describe the people sitting around him. I was particularly entranced (I tried to think of a different verb, but this was the first to come to mind) by his description of the couple who want to get divorced. You're doing a really great job with little details in this story! They make all the difference to me, let me tell you. They are buenisima! (nyah. spanish kicks latin's ass.)
(holy nights, no verbally perfumed mangers, no virgins. I’m enough of that (last thing) myself) I like how you incorporated that detail without just saying 'he is a virgin'. I hate when writers do that. And it's funny!
It's cute how they discuss hot guys together. I'm quite partial to Jake Gyllenhal myself (he's in, uh, Bubble Boy, Donnie Darko, and Brokeback Mountian among others...). You should rent Donnie Darko because it's my favorite movie! Anyway, I was at Panera the other day (it's a sandwhich place, if you don't already know) and there was this guy with blond, highlighted hair down to his shoulders and this girl walking hand in hand. And then... they started trading hair tips. I though it was the funniest thing EVER. I don't think he was gay though, and my gaydar is pretty functional...
(flick my dick switch on) WHERE DO YOU COME UP WITH THIS STUFF? You're killing me, Dana. I'm laughing so hard ny parents think I'm having a seizure. "No, Mom! Someone's tickling my funny bone!" Don't look at me like that. I couldn't think of anything else- and it worked!
Poor Brannie is having an inner battle with himself. I can just picture him, hands braced on the table as he freaks out, looking like an idiot.
(He’s got dimples.) DIMPLES.
Ha! I totally thought he was the one who said heyya sexy. I really did.
Wow, hottie is a foreward one! He's basically just like 'can I suck you dry?' and poor Brannie just doesn't know what to do with himself!
And he's a stalker, oh my! You know I love that, don't you? I think it's just the cutest thing. The lust letters are so cool! I get the title now. He can't even make it to Z...
The ending was just PERFECT. I swear, you couldn't have ended it any better.
I'm sorry about your friend Justin. He sounds like a really cool guy. And, just so you know... is still better than RootBeer! But, okay, rootbeer is a close second.
Thank you so much for this, Dana! I own my very own Dana original! When you become famous, I won't even think of selling this on e-bay for big bucks (it's worth so much more than a quick million... or two...). I loved it, I really did. Sorry of this review is shit confusing, but I decided to write it as I read so I wouldn't forget anything.
Well, it's ten and I'm starting to feel really tired now. Must sleep. Be sure that I will have happy gay boy filled dreams tonight!
(You are the best times a gazillion)
