Wonderful! Not too long, not too short, lots of emotion, well thought out plot & characterisation. You had me interested right away. Thank you for this gem. Made me laugh & cry. I like how you write. I'm looking forward to reading more of your work. I only read stories that are completed because of disappointments in the past - I'm so glad this story is completed or I might have missed out.

This is great. Intelligent, funny; I loved it.
By the way, I didn't know that there were places where the age of consent is different for anal sex. How homophobic.

Wow. Just wow. Short but so damn emotional! God, it's amazing! I'm freaking speechless! And Lucas is heart. I swear. His thoughts: funny as hell. And Matt is goddamn sugar! Sweet! Both are sweet. Nom nom. Indescribable. I swear, if it weren't 1 in the morning right now and if I haven't got piles of homework working against me, I would've given a longer review. Alas, school's a bitch. Always have, always will. Heh, I'm so sharing this to my friends!

Well. I realize that this is almost a year late, but I still felt the urge to review because there were definitely aspects that I appreciated.
When I read the first chapter, I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue reading because I knew the emotional tumult would be messy and expressive and would remind me of myself and be nothing like myself at the same time, haha. But, as you can tell, I did decide to take that leap and read the second chapter. And after that... well, I'm reviewing for the final chapter, aren't I?
I just wanted to note that anything I say from this point on is said as a reader and in no means as critique, constructive or otherwise. It's simply an opinion, but because this story struck so close to home, I almost feel obligated to share it, if only for personal means, so sorry if you take offence or if it strikes completely off the anvil for you.
I really appreciated this story because I think Matt and Lucas both resemble me in different ways. On one hand, I can immediately identify with Lucas and his bitter, grudge-holding tendencies. Though, the largest contrast I can identify between us is that I don't forgive my grudges. Maybe because I don't feel the people I'm holding them against have no grounds for forgiveness, but that's not the issue here. On the other hand, I can identify with Matt for leaving because it was an opportunity to better himself. It was for himself that he took the job, and I can't begrudge him that because my philosophy is that every man lives for himself. It doesn't matter how committed you are, how loving you are, how high of an esteem you hold your partner or some other person in, in the end, you always have to live for yourself. Taking a chance like that helped him. Could he have lived without the opportunity? Absolutely. Would he have regretted it? I don't know. That's something only you can answer.
It's actually funny that I would read this now. I'm pretty much in Matt's position at this moment. I've been offered an education abroad, but going would mean leaving my entire life behind, including people of significant worth to me. I may not be in a relationship, and definitely not thinking about these people as "long term" whatever, but it's still pretty similar. And despite the bonds that I'll have to cut to go, I'm going to do it because, like I said above, I'm taking an opportunity to fulfill a part of myself that belongs solely to me.
And I know that this is an entirely one-sided view. I know. But I don't take it back, haha.
Either way, I really appreciated the struggle that you presented. I'm glad that I decided to click the next button. And I'm glad that you wrote the story.
Thank you for the read!

I really liked this story. It was very emotional and nice to read. It seemed more realistic than a lot of other stories to me. I really enjoyed reading it!

Oh God it's like a ... real story from real life, your so hurt, so stubborn to late others see your broken heart. And you just need an only word, an only act, ... to make you remember a life so from the past but in your mind each day, a life that you have with someone you imagined the future with him. This's what really happen to a broken someone. Thank you for the lovely story.
Even when the end is a happy one the broken stay broken and the time lost never come back.
