| Pantu chapter 29 . 3/16/2014
Well, you probably don't pay any attention to these things after so long finishing this. But, I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed this story anyway. I really liked the reality of it all, okay so there were a few bits that seemed a bit forced and some bits where some stuff just happened and I was a little shell shocked by the turn-over speed (like Hero and Seba for one), but overall I liked that this was just about two guys and their last year of high school who happened to be coming out and falling in love.
I enjoyed Paris's narative the most, it was refreshing and realistic in a completely OTT way. Seba's had an ocasional tendancy to lean towards sounding like Paris in a couple of the early chapters, but he was the more confused MC so I could accept this most of the time. It was also a very character driven plot, which, when reading in one go (over a few days at least) got a bit less gripping in places, espcially towards the end of parts one and two. My favourite chapters were the first few of both parts as I found them very real and very engaging.
I hope (if you're still bothered about these things) that my longish review makes up for not reviewing every chapter. Thank you for putting your work out here and I hope that you're still enjoying your writing whatever you're up to these days.

For god sake... 13 effing chapters and I still hope that your story will be finally interesting... I have to say, I believed it each effing end of chapter. Each time I said to myself "this is it" and... no, no, no. Still sucks. I'm happy for you that you've got a whole bunch of readers who like it. Guess I'm not one of them.

The author keeps telling that Gabe is the most likeable character in his/her story, but I beg to disagree.
I hate Gabe.
I imagine him laughing evilly in a corner about his plan working on confusing Seb even more. Yeah in my mind he's the devil in the story.
well thats just me. haha
BTW I hate Seb, love Paris and like Hero. :P

Yes, I'm sure many hate you.
This story confuses me so much.
It's like when there should be some character development showing.
That thought just gets thrown out the window.
| Mcgde chapter 7 . 4/3/2013
The character development in this is maddeningly slow.
I can't stand how long this is taking.
| Stop Staring At Me chapter 29 . 2/8/2013
Great story! You're very talented when it comes to character development. Cheers for a wonderful read.

Good thing about this all: I didn't think of my friend Sebastian at all while reading this story. And that is good because, even if he is hot, he is... how should I say this? Epitome of straightness and kind of homophobic. Kind of, becuse he says he isn't but if a dude were to hit on him, he'd probably snap.
Good point done. Let's start with the real review.
I hated it but loved it.
Well, no. That's not true. I loved it. They fought and Seba and Hero got together: I hated it. Seba and Paris finally friends again: Yush! The cabin: YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUSH! LOVED IT!
Those were my reactions.
I still hate Hero kind of yeah... And Paris had rights over Seba, he liked him first. Hmph.
My mom's side of the family is French! And I actually understand French when I read it! :D And I think, read and write in English! Though I live in Perú and my mother tongue is Spanish! I'm weird :p
Now, serious review mode on:
I loved this story. I laughed, I actually did cry, and I got so mad that I wanted to smack someone... HARD. You wrote it well, and like my dear friend Robert Frost once said: No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.
So you must have had written this with emotion for me to feel it. Your writing style is pretty good, I liked it. You're good, keep it up.
I fell in love with your characters. Simple as that. I loved Paris even if he was kind of infurating sometimes, I loved Seba too. I just loved everyone but Hero. Oh, and nice names, Paris... Hero... I saw what you did there ;D Did you know that Paris was also known as Alexander/Alexandros? I never had a liking for him though, I've always prefered Achilles and his ankle haha. Though, Paris was supposed to be a beautiful young man himself... and now that I think about it, it's ironic how your Paris "takes" Seba from Hero, kind of reminds me of the reason for the Trojan War, don't know if you did it on purpose or not, but smart anyways.
Well, moving on and leaving the Greek mythology behind, I loved your story and hated it at some point, but couldn't stop reading as I was obsessed. Hehe. Now, because of me, one of my friends is gonna read it hehe, because I made you facebook propaganda XD
I know how Seba felt about telling his mom about him, I told my mom I was bi this year... She was in denial, then she accepted me, said she loved me and now, it's like I never said anything. She completely ignores it and whatnot. I actually told her because her and my brother were pestering me because they wanted to know who I liked, and when my mom and I got home, I told her that I liked one of my best friends and that she was my girlfriend. And yada yada yada. It wasn't too hard as my cousin is lesb. but yeah. Meh. I don't really care anymore, my friends know and love me just the way I am and that's the only thing I care about...
And cats, I care about cats too. And reading. And Tumblr... And unicorns. And writing... and drawing.. and I'm sleepy it's 3:31 in the morn so I'm not making much sense.
So adieu, mon ami! By the way, I loved the innuendos hehe. Buhbai!

I haven't finished reading this story, but as of this chapter, I really, really dislike Sebastian's attitude (or rather how I perceived your portrayal of him) or maybe It's just because I find the idea him being in love with 2 person at the same time such a turn off.
I still like him overall tho
| i-wish-i-had-wings chapter 29 . 12/30/2011
i don't know how many times i thought they were going to break up, there was just so many situations in which they could've. and i was seriously in doubt of this ending happily, at least for them as a couple. the story was just too real, and not at all the usual fluffy slash xD
i'm glad they made it! but i must admit that i was hoping that paris wouldn't accept sebastian being in love with both him and his sister and dating HER, but only so that he could fool around with some guys from the styx *-* i would never accept that the person i loved was involved with someone else AND me, i'd have forced him to choose, or said fuck off P
i loved both of them, but paris was my favorite, ok he was an insensitive bastard, but at least he was honest and didn't waver with his feelings and just being hurtful. i wanted sebastian to HURT! i just wish paris could have had a fling, just to hurt him as much as he was hurt and just to make sure that sebastian treated him right. and that thing, where he kept hanging out with erika even after he knew she was interested in more than friendship, way to make a partner insecure, ok i'll admit, i'm not very fond of sebastian, lol.
and one more thing, i don't remember how to spell her name (and i'm too tired to look it up since i've been reading this none stop and it's now 03:50) but sebs first girlfriend, she got pregnant, didn't she? i'm sorry if i missed it, if you wrote it out, but i was in a hurry to finish the story before going to bed, i just had to know how it all ended P
i really liked the other guys in the gang, almost made me wish i was a guy and had guys like that to hang out with )
thank you for a fantastic story, i've actually been avoiding it for quite a while, the summary and that i thought it was a real fluff story just put me off, i'm very happy that i finally decided to give it a chance, 'cause it's seriously one of the best things i've read on here!

I really took to this story at first, it really intrigued me. The further I got in the more I became emotionally invested in the characters. In particular, Paris. You know, the character that is subjected to so much pain? Yeah, Seba became number one on my hitlist. I practically ship Seba/punch to the head.
Seba kisses Paris, making Paris realise his feelings, and then refuses to acknowledge them. Gtfo, I'm going to go for your little sister now. I'm not gay! I'm straight, but I just like making out with dudes at the gay bar! Bisexual? What's that! And from the early signs with Hero, it appears she's now pregnant (which my friend who told me to read this didn't deny upon questioning). Alright, so what next? Paris has had five months by himself, not even a girlfriend, no one there. He said it. His everything had disappeared. Seba, his everything, who happily has other supports to cling to, like Hero. Now, Paris realises he's in love with his best friend and what happens? Seba starts to casually kiss and touch Hero, Paris' little sister, in the backseat of Paris' car while said boy is driving. Need I remind you that Paris is absolutely in love with his best friend, so imagine him seeing that? Not just some random girl either, his own sister. Imagine how inadequate he must feel, and to his younger sister.
So I asked my friend, who kept encouraging me by telling me it has a happy ending something. I said, tell me now, does Seba get let off easily? And she was honest: yes. I've officially given up on this fic, I refuse to read anything further. You got me so hooked to the characters, feeling so utterly devastated for Paris.. and to know that Seba gets let off easily. By golly, that just... He deserves to suffer ten times the amount of what he subjected Paris to. I'm all for couples working for their happy ending, but not when the pain isn't equally distributed.
I know this fic is old and you probably don't bother checking reviews, but I really do hope you read this. Just to know that there was at least one reader who actually got too invested in this story, and got too upset to continue.
Seba, I'll be dancing on your grave, boy.
