I love that Paul is showing his caring side in this chapter. And like I said before I really feel for Tobias - this boy needs help big time. I like that you're describing the dread/worried feelings that Paul is going through like the lead in his stomach and such.
I'm enjoying reading this as usual.

I like that Paul is looking after him- he seems more responsible, not out of character responsible, but good.
I always love reading your author notes, you know
(I take you don't mean 30 chapters left, just 30 total, if the end is in sight, right?)
(Tobias and Paul as the same person would be really freaky...and then he woke up and it was all a dream;P)
| Honunjama 4/24/12 . chapter 24
Wow. Okay. I like seeing this other side of Tobias, this self loathing that he's been hiding away. I want Paul to take responsibility and take care of him I think.
The scene with Tobias breaking down was well written- and authentic
Looking forward to more
(oooh nearly at 100!)

I can understand that it's due to Tobias being drunk that he's actually talking and showing how he's really feeling, but... its still weird :/. For Tobias to suddenly be talking is surreal. Sorry. It's feels quite ooc to me.

I really feel sorry for Tobias. Seriously. I do hope he will get some help because he sounds like he has a serious issue and he doesn't know how to deal with it.
I was afraid that it would be something like this when you left Paul at the door in the last chapter, that somehow Tobias is trying to drown something miserable inside himself by letting people use him like that. Definitely a tug at my heart string.
Anyway. Good chapter as usual. Looking forward for the next update.

Finally Paul begins to get it. (I wasn't sure about this detail, but that's not the "it" I mean,anyway)
Maybe he'll also get that he shouldn't ahve sex with Tobias for a long time.

I like the creative approach to ch 23, cutting between reflection over the past two weeks and the current bus ride. ... But man, what a cliffhanger! I am literally shaking my fist! I really can't wait for the next chapter.
Paul has a really nice mom and supportive friends. I hope Tobias has the same kind of love to fall back on. People are fragile things... I'm glad Paul is taking responsibility and recognizing his hurtful behavior.
Eagerly awaiting the next installment...

I like the progression, the journey you're taking us on. I was unsympathetic to Paul after what he did, but at the end of this chapter things felt calmer and I want some sort of resolution to his feelings over their break up.
| Honunjama 4/18/12 . chapter 22
You know, I felt happy when Tobias told Paul to 'fuck off'. I think he deserved that tbh...
| plumblossom 4/17/12 . chapter 22
Yeah, well, Tobias had to do that, after what Paul put him through. Considering everything.
| Miyuki31393 4/17/12 . chapter 23
Does he not remember what happened at the last party they went to?
| Miyuki31393 4/17/12 . chapter 22
I'm actually really glad Tobias broke up with Paul.
| GreenGrass1 4/17/12 . chapter 23
Well I'm glad that Paul is going to apologize and talk to Tobias. It shows a big heart on his part.
Looking forward to the next update.
| GreenGrass1 4/17/12 . chapter 22
If I have to guess, Tobias is breaking up with Paul because of the threesome thingy. He probably didn't really want to do it but he did it anyway for Paul and after he regretted it. That's my guess. I can't blame Tobias for that. I mean I love Paul and all that but he has been told that Tobias is not that interested in this whole sexual business and yet...
Anyway, enjoying this chapter as usual.

This one was hard to get through (emotionally). I keep cringing at Tobias' compliance. Why does he do everything he's asked without an argument? He is uncomfortable, he is being used, and yet he doesn't stand up for himself, which makes me sad. I wonder what in his life taught him to ignore his own instincts? I know situations like this come up when you get drunk. But I get the impression he ends up in this situation pretty often. I hope Paul comes around and starts caring about him... Judging by the dream sequence, I can see Paul is subconsciously feeling guilty. I can't really imagine what's in this for Tobias.
So I am analyzing these characters and their motivations for a few reasons. I really care about them. I want to understand them. And I want to see both Tobias and Paul grow. This all comes back around to your successful writing.
BTW, The dream sequence was intense and gut-wrenching. Great work.
Thanks for another awesome chapter!
