I don't see why your self esteem in writing is so low. You manage to move even those who are personality, culture, and belief wise not connected to the story at all. You write in a way that lets the readers understand the person's point of view, even if they usually can't comprehend it (like me, who's an agnostic Jew who doesn't believe in God and thinks that the most unholy book on Earth is the bible. I have no problem throwing it on the floor when I'm angry. Almost all other books are sacred to me).
Anyway, the ending was kind of sad, but that's life, right? I actually happened upon this story while searching for yaoi sex scenes, so I was kind of disappointed that this one didn't have a sex scene.
By the way, I don't usually add stories, especially when they're shorter than fifteen chapters, to my favorites, so know that this one is really really good.

I felt so so bad for Christian and Davis, of course I wanted a happy ending but this story was more powerful because there isn't one. This story was at times hard to read because of the characters' pain but it was nonetheless beautiful.

That was beautiful. Thank you for sharing it.

It may have been much less than you hoped it would be, but I have no idea how you could think that...The only word that I can think of to describe this is 'beautiful'. It was great and insightful, so thanks so much for putting this fic up.

I'm not sure what to say, except that I'm glad I found this. Despite the lack of descriptions, this was extremely powerful and deep. What a difficult situation that is.

I decided to review because I can't just leave it until later, even if it means writing it at one o'clock in the morning before bed.
This story was beautiful, amazing, or whatever words mean the same.
To be honest, I feel as if I don't know anything about Christianity. Even though I may say it's my religion, I haven't been to church for more than half of my life. Not since I was a child. Mostly because of that sad lack of understanding, I'm more likely to side or link with Christian's feelings. Obviously, I found it sad that Davis continued to reject Christian - I already felt halfway through that I was going to be weeping. I was choking back tears before I could even finish it. Even if there was or wasn't any tension built I still had a bit of hope. The ending didn't crush me as bad as I thought it would although I was still emotional.
However, I do believe the message of the story is the truth, and it is reality is most situations.

This made me cry. I feel sorry for you; but you've already come along so much for someone whose parents are religious. If you can write things like this you already CAN listen and be tolerant.
I won't favourite this; it's so sad I don't think I can bear to read it more than once. But you're a good writer, keep it up.

There is so much I am feeling right now.
So much I am feeling after reading this big piece of amazing.
But I can't find the words to express what I am feeling.
It's just this blurred swirl of nameless emotions in the pit of my stomach.
Can I just say thank you? Thank you for writing a piece that deals with homosexuality and religion and does not portray faith as the source of all evil? Can I just say thank you for writing a piece that does not ridicule Davis's belief? Davis's conflict and struggle? A piece in which the protagonist, despite not sharing this belief, is somewhat respectful of Davis's torment? Stories abotu homosexuality and religion are all so cliched. "religion is wrong. Get over it." People don't seem to understand that when you believe in something with every fiber of your being, of your soul, you cannot just switch it off. You cannot just give in to your urges and reason with your head. It doesn't work that way.
This is probably one of the most /real/ pieces I have ever read.

Oh my, that is just so touching. I like happy endings, honest. I adore tragic endings too. I love realistic one even more and oh my that just made me want to weep.

This was a very fascinating read to me. My view on Christianity pretty much matches Christian's, as do my opinions, but I've no intention of starting an argument or judging your writing because of that.
You say you are lazy when it comes to descriptions, but the first half was captivating with the way Christian thinks of Davis, how he longs and how he is in love with his eyes. It's hurtful to read their discussion because there can't ever be anything but heartbreak between them. I agree with the ending, however sad it is, because it's right, in my opinion.
| crack the sky 6/29/09 . chapter 1
it amuses me that the main character's name is christian, even though he's agnostic. i don't know why. i am amused by odd things, irony being one of them.
ugh, there was one line i really loved, but i can't remember what it was. i remember it was awesome, though.
| kaigrey 5/18/09 . chapter 1
This story made me incredibly sad and introspective and honestly hit a little too close to home. The only part that (to me) was a bit unrealistic was the kiss. Davis has denied this part of himself for so long and to such an extent that it's hard for me to imagine him instigating or going along with a first kiss or even a second. I personally feel like it would be too ingrained into him to *touch* much less kiss Christian, despite the extent of his feelings for him. But then, thats just me. I love your work. All of it has a lot of variety and heart. Keep writing
