You know, I dont usually read stories from guy pov's. I dont understand boys at all so I usually just dont bother, but I was so just... 'INTRIGUED' with this story that I couldnt just stop reading. And when Bruce said "Did you break up or something" I was laughing more then necessary.
Anyway, point it, I'm physced for the next chapter and I cant wait for you to update. Well, I can wait. But yeah. Lol.

I love this story cos it's about Asians, and I AM an Asian, and I can actually relate to this...in some aspect.
Hilarious read !

Hey, I just started reading this and decided to comment:
First off, I just want to say how great your dialogue is! Each character has a different style of speech, and it's so easy to tell who's talking, even without the dialogue tags. It's so refreshing to see someone on this site who's master this.
Something I've noticed that's a bit of a bugger, is the use of bolding. It's a little distracting to a reader, and not aesthetically pleasing, not to mention sometimes hard on the eyes. Italics are what are normally used when you want to emphasize something, such as the paragraph from Alex's textbook in this chapter.
The other thing was just the two chapters of background in the beginning. I would say that it's not really necessary... at least, it hasn't been yet. For a story like this, it's really better to put details like that within the narrative when it's necessary, or not at all! As readers we don't need to know every intimate detail of his life prior to the beginning of the story.
Other than that, so far what I've read has been great! I'm enjoying this story. As I mentioned before, I'm so delighted with your dialogues, and I really like your characters.
That being said, I'm going to read the next chapter!

I think you should put a disclaimer, just to state that you don't think of all Asians that way. I'm assuming you don't, right? Because it is pretty insulting and offensive.

I love it! I'm Asian, and a girl, and none of this really applies to me... but I love it!

i've read through chapter 6 so far i believe (i just read the chapter where perice acts really biased in favor of sherry over john). while the writing is very good some aspects of the story are quite confusing.
1.) Stanford is not an Ivy League school. The Ivies are Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Columbia, Cornell, Penn and Brown. The expresion is usually "Stanford and the Ivies"
2.) If he is going to college why is it called "Academy." Honestly it sounds like you started off writing about high school and then just changed your mind and decided to write about college instead.
3.) Off that whole changing your mind thing, many aspects of the story seem more highschool-ish than college. For example: the drama plotlines and the fact that the freshman are so divided from everyone else. I'm finishing my sophomore year of college and I believe that I have been in a grand total of two classes that were only people from my year. As a freshman some of my classes had seniors in them.
4.) I didn't really understand why they were using a textbook to study philosopy. Why not read the actual text itself? It seems odd that they are relying on a secondary source when they could just read the words of Plato, Aristotle, Epictetus etc.
5.) What is an Eating Club?
I think those are all of my questions and observations. The story is well written and fairly interesting. But right now I'm so bogged down in all of this confusion that it is detracting from my enjoyment of the story and I don't feel like reading it anymore.

It's been HOW long since I last left a review?
Meaning, it's been longer since you've updated.
hehehe, If you see this, I hope you're doing well. I won't say that it wouldn't be a shame if this story languishes forever, because it would. I'm very much interested in Alex's developments, and I have to say - I about died laughing at some parts of this story (the FEET), cracked up at others I probably shouldn't have (Alex's first dance lessons), and am seriously disturbed by the ending to this chapter.
Not that I'm saying he and Kelvin shouldn't have had a blowout. Quite the contrary; I'd have felt cheated if you didn't write it in. I think it came out wonderfully.
I just wanted to say hey, long time. :) And I'm glad I got to read so much of this. Here's to hoping there will be more, someday!
(more familiarly, LoK)

Hey, just like to say that this is a really great story. I read it in 2 days ] but when i got the the climax point of when we look forward to discovering what is 'Kelvin' i find that there is sadly no more. I don't want to sound pushy because i know you probably have a life but i would really appriciate it if you updated! Thanks o_

I'm loving this story very, very much. That little bit in a previous chapter describing Alex's attempts at dancing were so descriptive I'm beginning to crave some grinding ;D I really like how the story is finally beginning to show how one-sided everything really is right now, due to it being soley from Alex's POV. (dude I don't make sense.) haha, I can't wait till the next update.
Also, I just have to say that the description of Alex's mum happens to hit very close to home.
