Even though this is continued on lj, I just thought you might appreciate a review here anyway.
This story is so unrealistic! Not that I think you're lying, I just mean to say that it sounds like an amazing slash plot, some crazy, kind of clichéd, really 'planned' story line - kind of unbelievable, and I have to remind myself that it's real, that it actually happened to a real, living, breathing person. By comparing this memoir - for that is what I would call this kind of story - to a made-up story, I hope you're not offended by my thoughts on how amazing and 'creative' this kind of 'plot' is, because I can kind of imagine the horror, and I guess that if I were you, I would have literally been petrified in many instances and it's just crazy and terrifying all at the same time. This story is just, I don't know how to say it - it's just really fascinating how this could ever have happened because it seems so unlikely yet really quite possible, and I don't mean to cheapen your experiences with compliments but this part of your life is truly and almost unbearably...erm, pristine. In the literal, original definition of the word - it's unmarked, untouched, really...big.

Its hard to find goos stories out of all the crap. you have to search like crazy.

Hey. So...wow. This is really cool. A glimpse into one person's life...How did you remember all of these things? I find it hard to remember what I did 5 minutes ago, let alone a year ago! Anyways, the whole story is really awesome, a tad unpolished but more charming for it. So, I went to your livejournal...I guess I have to make an account to read the rest of the story? I didn't see any links or anything so I assume that I'll be able to access it once I make an account and "friend" you? Anyways, I think that this is super-awesome, and I'm glad that you basically made your life story public. :D

I can't believe this is a true story! It's kind of sad. :(
I love how you portray emotions... cause that's actually pretty hard to get through on page. I mean, it'd be hard for me. Well, I love the story. You're great at writing even though you doubt yourself, it seems.
I do have one criticism though, I love your little side notes in the brackets but sometimes, it takes away from the story. I mean, they'd be hilarious in the author notes at the end but, I don't like them smack-dab (haha, never used that word before) in the middle of the story. :)
I like how complicated this is. I mean, we know all about the main character (you) but at the same time, we know nothing! He's so real and 3D and just, I love how you've written this. It really gets through to you.
Every character is unique (even the minor ones, like Jay! you see, usually I'd forget a minor character, but he was so real that I never will!) and I can really see myself meeting them and how they would act.
BASICALLY, what I'm saying is that you're awesome. :D
And apparently, you've stopped writing this here on FP or all together?
I shall see, since it does say in bold to read the rest at your homepage, wherever that may be.

Hey! I just wanted to tell you that I love how you write! I think what intruges me most, is the fact that this is real! I added you as a friend over LJ, but I'm wondering, are you ever going to update again?
kudos, and I think, no, I'm pretty sure, I love you!
| Q chapter 23 . 7/17/2009
So, I read the whole thing in one go. I feel slightly dizzy, but I WILL keep on reading it.
I don't think I've ever been so conflicted, in terms of my emotion.
You made me laugh; you made me cry.
I saw hope; I saw despair.
There was love; there was heartbreak.
There's no doubt about it. I've read a lot of stories in my life, but I've neevr felt so emotionally connected. Your words are entrancing. I applaud you, from the bottom of my heart.
I guess this is the point, too, where I'm supposed to tell you how shocking I find that this is your own life story. I am shocked, let me assure you. It seems so well written that you could convince anyone it was all fake. I'm stunned, I really am, but to the point where I don't feel it.
I'd probably like to ask you a thousand questions about this... but I'll read the livejournal stuff first, I think.

hey, its me. one of your devote readers. I remember a while back you said you wanted to take down your story because people were saying things about it? Im not sure, but I really want you to consider publishing this book here:
its such a fantastic site for us writers. im waiting to get my laptop fixed so I can jump on it and start creating my book.
it gives you options of what cover you want and design, adding you're own photographs and EVERYTHING. I am realy excited for you to do this because not only can you publish this, the site can make copies and actually have people buy the book you made!
please tell me what you think? :)

You are very brave. I have enough trouble writting...scenes like that...een when they are fictional. To actualy be able to put enough detail and emotion into something like that and have it bassed in truth...wow. I aplaude your bravery and talent.

Alright, so normaly I would wait till I read the enitre story and leave you one huge review at the end. I am so inspired to compliment you right now though, that I just can't wait. Firstly, this story is amazing on so many levels. From a wrtting point of view, it has good plot and charactere development, your settings are interesting and well described and the over all 'flow' is excellent. I'm probably not the most qualified to say this, but there were no spelling or gramer mistakes that i have noticed. (i may have missed some because seriously, spelling/grammer is the bane of my existense, lol.) Novice-type stories like the ones posted here are so much better when they seem as profesional as this, you know, with no mistakes and such. I guess you can pass my compliments on to whoever edits your work as well. Props for profetionalism! (please ignore the spelling of that word...)
I think it's amazing that this story is a true story. I am a huge fan of the 'real life dramas' but have never encountered one that was actually real life. the way this is written, sort of biographical, sort of memoir is really interesting. Soemone once told me that the best way to write is to write about waht you know. The funny thing is, when i read 'real life' stories, i'm alwasy like, that doesn't actualy happen. Aparently it does. your life is really interesting!
I wanted to write my personal story some day. Then I realized it would probaly be depressing and definatly boring. I'm still waiting for my happy ending.
So, now that i have left you an epic review, i will read the rest of your story! Know that I think you as a writer are amazing and that this story is extremly well written and very inspiring, on a personal level for me as well as an inspiration to write more. you rock.
Also, I want to mention that I adore the diction in this story- you know, like word choice? of course you do...Anyway, i love European authors because the words are so much cooler than Canadains. Our claim to fame is 'eh' and thats pretty much it. lol So, once again, i'll bid you farewell and wish you luck on all future writting endevors and wherever else life might take you.
(ps. this is the longest review i have ever written...)
