It's been over a decade since this story was published and completed and I just wanted to tell you that this was such a beautiful story. It was perfectly paced and intricately detailed. There were parts of the story that were kinda left hanging like Sam and Ali's relationship issues.
I really loved that Adam homosexuality was something he needed to accept and embrace, it made the story that much more real because I know that I went through a lot of denial and internalized phobia until I could accept myself.
I also really loved that this story was inspired by your sister coming out as lesbian and having to write it to understand about it. You did wonderful.
Thank you for such a beautiful story.

I am horrified this hasn't been updated in so long.
the sex scene was amazing. I was listening to the song when reading it, and that made it so much better.
I love this story. so much. if you do end up updating it one day, I will definitely trip over myself to read it.
so thanks... for writing such a great story that I got to read. :)

I love the Dead Kennedys, Operation Ivy, the Ramones, Bad Religion, and *shifty eyes* Green Day, no matter how cliche that is, and I also really, really hate Good Riddance. Yay! Now, excuse me while I actually read the other half of the chapter, aheh...

Good story,I think you made the characters quite real and it was nice to read.

Lovely! I hope you write part two soon! You're a really good writer, your story has a lot more depth then most other punk-fics I've read, or random 'figuring-oneself-out'-fics for that matter. I can't wait to read more!

I like it so far. I noticed a few spelling mistakes, but nothing major. I would actually like to see Adam and Sam together... And maybe have Sam lose some of his good kid qualities in the process... Or not *shrug* either way, I'll definatly keep reading.

That would never happen in Oakland. I'm sorry, but it wouldn't. Hell, I live in Berkeley, and I can tell you that it wouldn't happen here either.

i just read your story and it was absolutely brilliant! i could really relate to how Adam was feeling, and found every one of your characters interesting. they were all very realistic and they way you expressed their emotions and actions to show their characters was amazing. i loved 'em all especially Adam and Evan. they're two of the coolest pple i've ever read about! i'd also just like to say that i listened to some of the bands you mentioned and they absolutely rock! looking foward to reading more of your stuff :)

It's really refreshing to read slash written by someone who's not a screaming anime fangirl or an extremely stereotypical gay guy. Not that there's anything wrong with either... I'm borderlining fangirl status myself and one of my best friends is a guy who wears too much mascara. But your perspective, and your version of a sex scene, are really... nice, you know? Great work.

Well you wanted to do something different and I have to say that you succeeded, so much in fact that I had no idea what was going on. Anyway that was a good story, sure I'm not a fan of anything punk but hey I can change! *pleads forgiveness*
For the most part the dialogue was well written and well structered, although one or two times it was like watching anime. The story did go quite slow, once again I can't complain (points to his own slow stories) and I actually got bored at one chapter there. I'm glad you want to show the day in the life of so and so but please spice it up, add a Dirty Harry San Fransisco car chase. Or some strategically placed explosions.
*sigh* I don't think I've ever given a good review.

Hmm I've been reading this story for...one day now and I see that I haven't even reviewed a single time. Shame on me. Well there were a couple of spelling errors, not that I really care. For some reason spelling errors add character to a story. Oh and you said that San Francisco has hundreds of thousands of people in it. Now this might be a kick in the pants, seeing as I'm Canadian and your from that area, but doesn't the city center of SF have like two million people in it. Plus all the suburbs, bedroom communities and and incorporated towns and cities te population is around fifteen big big big ones. Or maybe I'm thinking of L.A.
Anyway sorry for that, the story is coming along nicely (a little slow I admit, but my stories aren't any better) and I'll keep reading to the sweet/semi-sweet/dull/bitter-sweet/sour/facemelting sensation of an end.

If you DO decide to do a Part Two of this story (which I'm hoping you WILL!) then you should put Evan's dad and brother in here. It'd be a twist, I think. Then again...
I love these two together. They're so sweet. Adam's my favourite character. I take back what I said about him being "down-to-earth". He's not. He's surreal. Nobody's like him. Which is why I love him so much.
And I love Evan just because that's my all-time faovurite boy name, and he's so...he really likes Adam. Which is great because...
Why am I rambling still?
Well... OH! Your story about your sister being a lesbian inspired me to write my own...kind of...if you have to free time, you should check it out, and let me know what you think. "Perfectly Imperfect" is the title. I'd love to hear from you!
Now, remember what I said about the dad and the brother. Because if you forget I'll...probably just laugh or something. BUt I'll laugh HARSHLY. And harshly isn't nice.
Right. Ignore me.
I need to lay off of the cookies. Or the cola. Whichever...

I cannot express how super sorry I am for taking so long to reply and review again. Your other chapters more than made up for fifteen, believe me! I haven't been on the Internet because I've been in a constant state of moving. I'm down in Arizona now, I have a boyfriend, Pedro Sanchez, 25, who wants to get married, and I'm learning to speak Spainish. (Gasp! I'm so bad!) I have a job as a room cleaner and I live on my own. Things are going well, except for the constant demon vanquishing. That's the life of a witch, I guess. Anyway, I loved the way you included the Castro in your story, Pedro and I are planning on moving there soon. I have five more chapters to put up on Life, but I got to type them. Keep up the good work!
