Man this was good
I hated Turkish at first because of how James keep talking about him in his thoughts
but trukish is so sweet and they are such a nice couple
Your a really good writer thanks for a wonderful story :)

So, uh, I'm pretty sure I've read at least part of this story before, a very long time ago, and I kind of loved it way back then, but I didn't remember all the details... But I read it all the way through again, and I sort of fell in love all over again, just so you know. (I think this epilogue is new, and I think it's a really cute addition). My compliments to you, it's really a great story... I really love their relationship, y'know, and all of James' freaking out makes me want to poke him, but it makes him so _believable_ and (I think in Yusef's terms) _adorable_ and likeable. :) So, wonderful story, I hope you keep writing.

OMG! You wrote this from Turk's POV! I love it! It's so nice to read his thoughts about James.
Fav lines: I can hear him stomping across the flat well before he gets to the bedroom. How such a little dude can make so much noise is still pretty fascinating to me. I think it is the weight of his wrath
Is it wrong that his pissed-off face makes me kind of horny? I have a private game I like to play in which I see how fast I can get him from mad, to pants off, pink cheeked and moaning. My personal best is around seventy-five seconds, but one of these days I'm going to get him down in under a minute.
I'm still laughing! Turk is just adorable. And James is still a neurotic mess. Lol!
Truly, I loved this story sooooooooo much! It's on my favs list. I will definitely be reading it again :)

Ch 23: Fav line: "Kitty!" I shake my head. "You are such a hopeless pervert, you know that?"
"Uh yeah." she smirks. "So I'll take that as a big fat yes because you are turning a nice shade of red there, honey. That's so great. I'm really happy for you James." (This so cracked me up! Kitty is a hoot! Just love her :)
Yes, he's going to Turk's for Christmas! And he called his dad and his dad said in not so many words that he misses him. Awww
And Turk's family is just lovely!

Ch 22: Okay, this WHOLE CHAPTER is my favorite line! Seriously! LOVED IT! Hot smexy goodness :)
| prostock69 10/14/11 . chapter 21
Ch 21: Fav line: "Did you pack condoms?" I whisper out of nowhere. I feel Turkish stiffen a little and I almost lose my nerve.
"No, baby, just lube," he murmurs against my cheek, planting kisses down the side of my face.
"Well, I think we should get some, on the way back," I venture quietly, "just in case."
He pulls back and studies my face. "Seriously?"
"Yeah," I nod, "seriously."
Yes! James is wanting to do the nasty! Finally! (rubbing hands together with glee!)

Ch 20: Fav Line: "Oh, no you don't." Turkish saunters up to me wearing nothing but the smirk on his face. "That's so not playing fair, buddy. You can call bullshit on me all you want, but I do not dress up my models. I photograph 'em how they come. I might fuck with the truth, but I still use it as a major ingredient. Her shit's so fake it might as well be a fashion shoot. Post feminism whatever." (Nice to see Turkish get a little angry. I really liked that he let James have it. Then they call each other names...so cute!)
Yes! Turkish may have an outlet for his building pics that James loved so much! This is cool! Ut oh, he called James his boyfriend! lol. :)
| prostock69 10/14/11 . chapter 19
Ch 19: Fav. line: "James Whitman! I LOVE complicated. What the hell is wrong with you? Why would you do this to me? I mean, I had my suspicions, certainly. I thought you might be getting some dirty snogging action with someone you little weasel, but Turkish? TURKISH? You brat." (Love her!)
And Peter's reaction was soooooo realistic! You wrote it perfectly! I mean, how shocked would you be to find out your BF and roommate is dating the one guy he hates the most in the world! Too funny! And that bitch Jenny should NOT be able to call Turkish a goof. Grrrrr. Like James would care about her opinion anyways. Hmph!

Ch 18: Favorite line: My eyes fly open. "No! It's not like that at all. I really want to. I do. I just think you're going to say no. Oh God." I shake my head in despair. "I don't even like cats. I don't want to be the crazy cat guy. I like who I am with you so much better," I blurt out. (snickering at 'crazy cat guy'...James cracks me up!)
Awww, James starts crying while Turkish is hugging him. That is so sweet. (I'm tearing up too). I just love these guys! And he brought T something for the top of his tree! :):):)
OMG, He's telling Kitty who he's bringing to Peter's gig! Gasp! She is totally going to freak! What a cliffhanger.

Ch 17: Favorite line: I wake up on Wednesday with my eyes feeling bruised and my pillow wet. I drag myself out of bed and go through the motions of my day in a distracted and listless state. The truth is the worst of my anger has started to cool and I miss Turkish. (I teared up!) Poor James. :(
I'm so glad Melissa didn't fire James. She's cool, even though she's bitchy. I won't call her a bitch because THAT distinction belongs to Jenny. Actually,
James calls his MOM for advice! Yes! This was so monumental! I loved it!
| prostock69 10/14/11 . chapter 16
Ch: 16: Oh shit!
My face drains of blood and I feel sick to my stomach at the sight of the last row of photographs. It's me. Asleep. In Turkish's bed. I make out the curve of a bare shoulder in one, the out of focus pinkness of a nipple in another.
Poor James, how embarrassing! But Turkish didn't mean anything by it. I would be flattered! Again, James is over reacting and over thinking! Sigh.
Favorite Line: "Oh." He just stands there for a minute. "Well I like you a lot," he snaps. "I put up with all of your bullshit because I really, really like you. God, most of the time I even think it's kind of cute. But if you're always going to be looking for an excuse to walk then I don't think I can do this, either. I won't be emotionally blackmailed. Because I'm stupid, James, but I'm not stupid enough to let you smash my heart into little pieces so that I can be as unhappy as you."
My heart is breaking for Turkish :(

Ch 15: Favorite line:
"No, it's not okay. I am the biggest asshole ever," I moan against his chest. "I just assumed it wasn't your work…because…because I liked it." I admit, my face flushing in shame. (Yes you are James. And Turkish just takes it in stride. That man is amazing. How he puts up with James, I just don't know!..lol)
When I was a child, we used to to the local Christmas tree farm and cut our own trees as well. Except, it was in Ohio, and it always snowed and it was fricking cold! But it was so much fun. :)

Ch. 14: Favorite Line 1: "Oh?" he hums against my eardrum, laughter in his voice. "You're going to fight me this morning, huh? Make me wring every like squeak and moan out of you by force?" My breath hitches as he starts to rub over my nipples in slow circles, teasing them into hard nubs as he humps against my body. "God, you're so fun to play with, James." (Snickers at "squeak and moan"...reminds me of a cat playing with a mouse.)
"She made fun of the clothes you picked out for me, so now you can hate her with me," I add. "She did? That bitch," Kitty concludes...(I love Kitty! She's my new bff!)..lol.
Ah ha! I kinda of thought that maybe Connor had some feelings for Peter. Sigh, at least he's not in love with him. Turkish has made sure of that! :)
Laughs at Jenny being called a "horrible harpy"...lol.
