Hey!I am here to share some exciting news. This story has been added to the ADoR slash category!
Here's the review:
"There's nothing worse than feeling inferior, worthless and second best but it's even worse when it's your best friend who is, unknowingly, making you feel said emotions. This is how Oliver feels due to Felix always being better at him in everything. Fencing, swimming, running; you name it and Felix was better at it. However, just as Oliver thinks he can't stand Felix any longer, a drunken mistake changes everything...
'To Love a Loser' is a perfect story of competition, friendship and romance that has you building a rapport with both male protagonist's. One minute you're giggling along with them, the next you're wanting to bang their heads together just so that they will wise up! This is all thanks to The Milk Bottle's perfect delivery. Each element listed is captured flawlessly in her writing, characterisation and plot line that realistically progresses throughout the chapters. The Milk Bottle shows us, throughout this story, that sometimes the best stories are those that come naturally to us and we don't over think with plans, layouts and structure.
Just a word of warning, this story has yet to be completed but it's most definitely worth a read as well as being added to your alerts list! It's definitely being added to mine..."

I know how Oliver felt! Being a loser and feeling stupid and all, giving your best but your best isn't enough. I cried when he confessed to Felix! It made me feel that I'm not alone. ;_;
Please update soon! I hope this has a happy ending.

it's been almost two years.. i'm still waiting (i'm sure others are too),
and i hope you feel like updating sooner rather than later.
i just read through this whole story another time through.
and i think it's crazy that it only had a few chapters left since the last time you updated it.
sorry that i didn't login, i wasn't sure it'd let me. but this is justbaja.
i'll be waiting for the rest.
thanks for sharing!,

Aaaaah, intense dramatic irony. I love the pace at which you pulled them together. Only one more chapter? Please, put it up ; u;
I've been trying to figure out how Oliver can get over his inferior angst when it comes to fencing without him feeling like Felix was just getting soft. A tie would seem like the middle ground, but I feel like it wouldn't be enough for Oliver considering how he looks at the past losses. I don't know! So curious. Please, let us know :)

I loved this story. It is psychological – you have a good grasp of how your characters work and how they function. While I’m not sure that a relationship between two people with crippling self-worth issues is really a good idea, that’s not what it’s about. This kind of story is usually told from the other perspective – from the point of view of the guy who’s been in love with his friend for years. I prefer it the way you’ve done it, though, because we don’t have to spend forever with the angst and stuff, and it’s truly an interesting story to be ‘the less emotionally invested’ one.
If you ever finish this story I’d like to see them come out to their friends and family. The way you’ve set things up the supporting cast is believable and a great dramatic set-up.

OMG poor Felix :C I love him so much, what a sweet little gay man!
| ChronoClockXVII 2/8/12 . chapter 19
I think Oliver needs to get over himself, there's always going to be someone better than him and to be THAT upset about it is seriously ridiculous. You respect people better than you. A little jealousy is normal, but for it to actually develop into dislike is really weird. Just bizarre. I can't find myself relating to any of Oliver's actions at all. Haha, sorry if I seem like I'm ranting! I'm just so confused. I do love the story though, if you can't tell by how into it I'm getting!

Wowww, Oliver is a total piece of shit. What! Like I really hate this character, I'm so bitter. Haha. I want Felix to move on and show him that he doesn't need him or something, because there is nothing remotely likeable about Oliver's character. At all, nothing. He's shallow, a whore, inconsiderate, jealous, mean, just a horrible person.

Omg, do people ever actually get together in your stories? Hahaha ;P I always think they do and then you're like JK the idiotic main guy still isn't sure what he's feeling even though it's obvious!
| ChronoClockXVII 2/8/12 . chapter 13
AWWWWWW ok maybe Oliver isn't that bad after all
| ChronoClockXVII 2/8/12 . chapter 12
Omg, Oliver is the most annoying and crazy main character ever. Gets jealous, has no idea why he's jealous, ruins poor Felix's chance at an adorable boyfriend, then runs off in a frenzy. Huhhhh? He's insane! If I were Felix I'd be like, fuck this and go fuck a cute gay boy when Oliver isn't looking.
| ChronoClockXVII 2/8/12 . chapter 9
I don't think I've ever hated a main character so much! Oliver is seriously evil! He sleeps around all the time, how can he even get mad at Felix for sleeping with one guy? So stupid. Felix should move on and find someone better!
