Great writing, I hope that one day you will finish this gem of a story.

Well! This is really rather superb! I really love both boys' storylines and how we got a really good background story from both of them so it was easy to understand what was going on, but I would LOVE for there to be more, even just an epilogue or something I guess. I mean, I am content with this as an ending but the possibility of more has given me hope!
I had been meaning to read this story for aaaages and for some reason, I only just read it this evening. So worth it.
I want to say that all the loose ends were tied up nicely but I think some more about Eli and swimming would have been good, maybe a scene with them going swimming (oh gods, that could have been a great cause for near nakedness too... :P ). Also, I feel as though Eli should have had the opportunity to go back to see Peter's family (btw I loved the whole Peter storyline from Eli's past -brilliant!).
In general though, SO GOOD! Thanks for writing so amazingly :)

I think this is a story you started way before all the rest? I almost couldn't believe it's yours, because of the difference in style and everything, but it still was enjoyable and sweet. Not very realistic maybe, but cool all the same.
I liked the way Madison and Eli grew close to each other, out of their love-hate relationship and towards real affection. They seem like kids still, but in a good way. They both have morals. Eli is strong and Madison is nice. I liked it:)

Umm... His relationship with Armstrong is eww and makes me think Madison is stupid to go along with it. Characters like that are sadly unattractive but I think I'll read a bit more to see the progressing relationship between Madison and Eli.

Awesome story! But you broke my heart when I reached chapter 17 and there was no ending. I really hope you find it in your heart to finish this wonderful story. Pretty please... (sad puppy eyes).

Whoa! I really liked this story!
Sometimes it made me laugh and sometimes it made me cry.
I loved both Eli and Madison, they were (I think) very realistic, especially Madison. I loved the way they interacted with each other, for example when Madison teased Eli in front of Tami.. uh Traci xD
Traci ... what a ... I dont know what, poor Eli, was she really that dense? I really would have liked to see her reaction if she learned about her dear brother and Keith xD. (is that sentence means something? )
Holley was just a pathetic disgusting sweaty pig and Armstrong well, lets just say I wanted to throttle him during all the story to make that smug smirk disappear from his face. è_é
Of course it's a bit disappointing that there is no proper end to the story but if you happen someday to write one Im sure to read it and to love it.
In short, Im a total fan!

I'll wait no matter how long it takes for you to write the ending of this one. Great story, but it really need an epilogue.
I love Madison and Eli XD
| frolic-horror 4/28/11 . chapter 17
It was a fun story to read :) Really enjoyed it. The characters were lovely and it was more than just pointless drama and angst. But you really killed me with the ending :)) it really neads an epilogue

| Insanity's Genius 2/9/11 . chapter 17

I don't remember if I've reviewed this before and if I haven't I'm really sorry.
A few years ago I started reading slash stories on fictionpress and I distinctly remember liking this one. I don't know why; I just did. Rereading it now I just realized how much of the actual beauty of this I missed. I was young when I first read this and I was a horrible reader (I remember skimming over long paragraphs because I wanted to get to the easier-to-read dialogue). Now that I've read the last chapter again, I'm crying.
Like I said, it's been years since I've read this and many things have happened. I'm not going to bore you with the details but there have been really bad times in my life. A close friend of mine went through things like Madison did and we read this story together this time. We're really emotional right now, but she wants me to tell you this:
"This story has really inspired me. Whenever I've had problems I didn't know what to do because there was no one there to listen. I didn't think they'd care. Now I know things don't always go like in the stories but I don't wanna give up and I wanna be happy too."
Yeah, basically she's been really sad and right now this is the only thing that's changing her mind. Your story made her want to look for a happy ending for herself. Thank you so much. I hope one day we'll find out how things end for these two. I also hope that I can review this again one day and that, next time, I'll have good news to share.

so is this it? this is how it ends? hum
Well first i just want to say that I absolutely loved it. I loved how they're not typical, you know? especialy their relationship. The ending however... well its better than most thats for sure. Its not that i dont like it, its just that Id have liked to know just who Keiths father is... but i get that its all on purpose. I love that its not a sappy ending or anything. And also, Im pretty sure im not the only one who thinks you could write a story about Keith and Francis XD Itd be epic in a cosmic proportion.

My heart was pounding a harder than normal, reading this chapter. It was really intense and even though I knew (hoped) things would turn out well, I couldn't help but feel dread (or something like that) because of the way you wrote it. Good writing should always bring out strong emotions in people. The ending seemed a bit rushed though, I feel like it could have used a bit more, and maybe another chapter or an epilogue.

I know it's been said before, but amazing.
After re-reading all your pieces for what seems like the billionth time (rather than study for my chem test tomorrow...heh), I've finally decided to stop lurking and leave a review. :)
Still can't decide if I like your one-shots or multi-chapter pieces better.
Either way, I still can't help but fall in love with your writing. Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your efforts in writing each piece! In the spirit of Thanksgiving (a holiday in the United States for expressing gratitude), thanks a million-bazillion for every fic you've posted :D

I gotta say that ending rocked! Very well done
