|Reviews for Not My Son|
| Astir-Lewis 1/24/13 . chapter 5
I. Love. This. SOOOOOOOOO MUCH! Mainly because my dad is doing the same thing right now, specifically this part. And I think the only reason he likes this last one is because he's actually a really good guy. But yeah, it's amazing. Sad that Levi had to get beat, but it made me happy to see that his dad accepted him. Anyway, great as always :)

Oh god, I don't know what's worse' Howard not supporting Levi or Howard Supporting Levi. Both seem pretty bad at the moment... but he'll learn I suppose...

I wuved it! I am very happy about how the story turned out.

Aw this chapter was really touching. I think you've done a good job portraying Howard as a man who loves his son and yet is struggling with these deep seated homophobic beliefs. It's satisfying to see him starting to accept Levi being gay.

This chapter made me shed a few tears. I'm glad Howard finally... admitted to himself that Levi is gay. Baby steps I suppose. I hope the next boyfriend isn't as bad as this one was.

Is this finished? It seems finished. But maybe there will be an epilogue.
And yeah, I guess it makes sense.

This felt like an ending. It certainly felt like it from Howard's point of view, but of course he has to be given the opportunity to make good on his new found acceptance and he has some bridges to build with Levi.
Some father son bonding is in order I think. Although presumably it won't be over football and porn ;}

Hmmm that was faster than I expected it to happen, but somehow it's reasonable.
First off, naaaaah. The wife is way to simple for her to have more of a personality than the husband. He's more complex. She's flat: how she was at the beginning that's how she'll end - unless you prove me wrong? but I doubt you'll make her the bad guy xD unless you turn Howard gay which will be incredibly funny xD Whereas Howard changes. that makes him a complex character :D he has doubts. He has various sides. That gives him a lot more personality than his wife.
Second off oowmegodh that was so cuteeee! I loved this chapter. Really did. Did not expect it to come so quickly (the change of heart) but I really liked it.
Well then. Till next chapter xD

OMG I hate that it took my poor sweet little innocent Levi getting the shit beat out of him for Howard to finally wake up, but thank god that he finally did. And I loved that Howard beat the crap out of Brad. Great chapter!
| Janie 1/23/13 . chapter 3
Aw, poor Levi. I so wish things would have worked out between him and Sam. I was really hoping for a scene with sex just to make Howard uncomfortable, lol. Bring on chapter 3! :)
| Skyless-11 1/23/13 . chapter 3
As I thought : I really like howard xD Probably his stubbornness :) I like stubborn people :D And maybe the weird way his mind works xD and how he keeps on believing his son isn't gay xD yep. I like howard probably even more than his son. He's got personality. Even more than his wife xD And you're doing great at building him! Great job on this chapter :
| Raaawr Ima Dinosaur 1/22/13 . chapter 3
Oh my god, he even went as far as to dig through Levi's trash...oh my god I'm simply liking Howard more and more by the second! I'm honestly waiting him him to snap lol. Keep up the great work! :D

I've always wondered how authors feel about writing characters or about opinions/situations they inherently disagree with! Mostly because I have the hardest time with doing so, and even to a point where it makes writing satirical things hard for me when they're satirizing something that is either a deeply ingrained opinion of mine or something that's just a facet of who I am, so I wholly commend you on writing this and a lot of the things you have written, for that matter! You're definitely never afraid to tackle touchy subject matters! I love your works, and this story just gets better by the chapter! Naomi is just...perfect...just perfectly perfect, and I love her! So good! Until tomorrow! Or maybe later today...haha ;)
| S.H. Marr 1/22/13 . chapter 3
Well, I guess Sam, at least, wasn't one of the bad boyfriends. I'm kind of glad to see that Levi isn't going to have to go through hell to convince his dad that things will be okay. That's kind of unrealistic, anyway.
Breaking up over a vacation like this is also kind of weird, but, well, not muh to be done about that when Levi is at college, I suppose.

I love Howard, he is such a douche, and just like every parent the world over trying to live their life through their children and only able to see his own point of view and no one else's.
This is such a real story, and it is different from what you have done in the past. It is almost as if there is one of your stories running and Howard's point of view is the minor character watching your real plot unfold from the side lines and trying to make sense of it. does that even make sense?
I can see Levi's character develop from Howard's point of view but could imagine you writing Levi's story and this being a spin off almost, with the notes that helped you develop Howard's part in Levi's tale.
