An awesome story. I think it was a good idea to base it on Mika' songs because the lyrics are really great and I enjoyed reading it.

I loved this story.
It really made me think about the way I perceive the world, others and myself. I'm very glad that you created a character like William. Actually, there are people like that - who find themselves different and hence superior to everybody else, but in fact there is not much hiding behind all their erudical bullshitting, hah.
It was a real treat to see Michael maturing and coming to terms with himself. A smart, beautiful story. Thank you.

Oh My Gawd. While reading this chapter, I realized that I was almost in the exact same position as Michael before. I said something really close to that to my ex-boyfriend. It's like... I really good interpretation of what could possibly happen in real life. This is now officially my favorite chapter of the entire story and kind of my favorite life message thingy.

Have you ever heard the song "You're gonna go far kid" by The Offspring? William reminds me so much of that song, especially the chorus: "With a thousand lies and a good disguise..."

I see some cliches in here- but you manage to pull it off.
Anyways- I have to idmit- I clicked on this for the title.
Blame it on the girls has to be one of the best songs EVER!
Anyways- I like the charecters and its pretty fucking funny.

after reading this all the way through i went and listened to MIKA and loved it! :D
Thanks Michael! Even if you're a jerk face!

I love the idea behind this, as well as the way you incorporated the songs into the story. A lot of them worked incredibly well, actually giving me a different perspective on the lyrics at times.
William truly is an arse. I must say it seemed a little over-the-top, how he didn't seem to have one redeeming feature, personality-wise. The explanation Louis gave at the end, though, did make sense to me, so I guess I'm fine with it. Bit of a harsh reminder that not all Mika fans are necessarily nice, too.
The story, as has been said, is cliché, yes. But it's also well-written, and I'm quite satisfied with the characters. The portrayal of the cliques at school may have been exaggerated, but seriously? The true core of it couldn't be more spot-on. And I actually can't help but love William for ultimately triggering a bit of a change. Not much, but - Michael's outing did make it alright to be anything-but-straight, and that's great.
So yeah. This was fun to read, playing Spot The Lyrics. Thanks for an afternoon well-spent xD

This is SO cliche...but I still absolutely LOVE it X3

. I have a confession ... You said this was ... inspired by the Singer Mika, so I went and found his music ... I've been listening to it the entire time I've been ready. A really good singer, I like his music. Some of it's pretty cool.
Anyway, on to the story: I liked it. It had a decent flow, and not enough spelling/grammar to pull me away from the story. I think it was around chapter 5 (We are golden) that I realized something wasn't quite right with William. Something just struck me as 'wrong'. I don't know if you were planning on leaving hints that far back, but you did, and I got them lol.
I love how you worked the story. And William is ... interesting. A seriously effed up kid, that's for sure. He needs a little help, I think. Though I do feel sorry for him ...
Anyway, excellent work, definitely a story that's going into my favs.
Thanks for the ride,

I adore this story. I know I shouldn't seeing as I found Michael rather pathetic (until he got a spinal cord at the end of course) and William is by all regards a dislikable person, the plot was also ridiculously predictable (at least to me anyways). But mostly I love this story because back in high school I was exactly like William. Hell I still retain a few of those characteristics. Obviously the fact that it is well written and the characters are well developed played a big role in how much I liked this story. But still when it comes down to it I just love this story so much because it reminds me of who I used to be and just how much I've grown as a person in a few short years.

You know what? My brother should read this story-not that he's gay but we get into arguments all the time about how weird I am because I'm different. I may dress like everyone else but I have my own style and my friends and I are strange to everyone else because we're being ourselves and are so happy. We don't care what everyone else thinks. My brother doesn't get that and (he doesn't think he does but I do cuz I've seen him be himself at home and with his oldest friends) but he pretends to be like everyone else. All he thinks about is fitting in. I say SCREW THEM! How can you ever be happy being someone else?
I love the story. It makes you think and yet it's so simple. I just love the way you write!

I'm a horrible person and a terrible reviewee. I just stopped reading anything on FP like 2 months ago. Including this. :( And then I saw that you uploaded the epilogue and I was like, "I can't believe I went so long without reviewing that it ended!"
Reading through all at once isn't quite the same as chapter-by-chapter, but it doesn't change the fact that this story was crafted really well the whole way through. You did a magnificent job, so kudos to you!
I can't believe I used to love William, because he is SUCH an asshole. I despise and loathe him. I mean, I feel really bad for him too, and before Louis even explained the reasons why, I kind of figured some of them out on my own. But still, he's an ass, no matter the reasons.
You rock! :) Thanks for crafting a great story that's real and is just awesome. Also, I don't think I could keep a theme like songs by one artist, and I think you really did an amazing job doing that. (One thing I noticed was in "One Foot Boy" you used 'stone' like rocks, except it's a unit of measurement denoting weight in 14 pound increments. I mean you can obviously use it anyway you want, but I think that's what Mika meant.)
Looking forward to more awesomeness from you,
PS: I feel like this review is shit but that's probably because I'm tired. Forgive me. :D
