|Reviews for Stupid Post It Notes|
| doodi chapter 44 . 5/22
years later, when i finally get the courage to go for therapy for all my issues, i'll make sure to mention your story among the things that started my anxiety. it's been, what, five, six years? the fuck. i was in school when i first read this and now i'm halfway through college. this story might not be some literary feat but there is something about it that makes me come back again and again, hoping, after all these years.
it's the opposite if what i call a "cozy" book, a book that makes you feel warm and safe in its world, regardless of how violent or bloody it got, or how happy/sad the ending.. where there was this constant feeling of falling, yet with the assurance that there were arms waiting to catch you at the end. yours is the exact opposite of that. it's like being left out in the rain overnight. like falling sleeping on the last bus and waking up to find yourself in an unfamiliar place at an ungodly hour and the sudden childlike fear that grips you and you just can't fight it with your reasonable, adult mind.
i relate to all these characters in different ways. i love Seth the most—it makes me rather sad to see people hating him. i am a girl but i dare say i have never seen my inner mind better represented. i love/hate Tuesday but i can see why Seth fell for him, i did too.
i don't know whether this story will ever be finished or published but it will always be on my mind when i think about books that changed me irrevocably.
thank you for writing "Stupid Post It Notes" and thank you for sharing it.

I added this story to my favourites list a long time ago, but only read it about a year back. This story was/is the m/m story with the highest number of favourites so I added it at the time out of respect. I had this story at the back of mind but I didn't read it. It had like 400k words and I was too lazy to read it. But then I saw this story everywhere, in many of the favourites list, so I read it.
The beginning was slow to me because I was expecting some action right away and I think I left it for some time. But after some time I continued it and I read it till the end. It was by far the most realistic story I have ever read.
The characters were realistic and you explained Seth's point of view in a way that one can understand what's happening in his head. You clearly explained the story with a realistic plot and that's why I totally love this story.
Some people don't like Seth or find him annoying, but I can relate to Seth the most. Truthfully, I found Sam annoying during certain times. Tuesday is the most unique character that I have ever come across. Usually while reading, I mainly focus on the main two characters and their interactions, but here I focussed on so many. I think I like Tania a lot, her character is so strong to me. Her interactions with Seth and Sam like how she loves them even when they are not her own children, how she can stay so calm, how she puts up and understands with Sam and how she managed when Seth accidently hurt Tuesday.
Usually, I root for couples who started out as best friends. But here I didn't feel that bad for Jon as I should have. But Tuesday and Seth are just for eachother I guess.

Well. It's been a little over seven years. And I much say, your story is amazing. I clicked on it, expecting to find it stupid, or badly written, and you proved me wrong on so many levels.
For starters, Seth is so emotionally complicated, it's actually somewhat amusing with how he blamed himself on stuff. Also, while he doesn't have a spine, I can't blame him for it, considering what he's been through.
Also, while there are some typos with words joined together (areason, instead of a reason) I'm not even mad about it, despite my grammar nazi tendencies. It never took away from the story, or my understanding of it.
Tuesday, is by far, one of my favorite characters in any story that I've ever read. And that includes actual novels like Harry Potter or Percy Jackson or To Kill A Mockingbird or Of Mice and Men. I really like how he's so passionate about preserving life, possibly because he nearly lost his own. I got the fact that he reason he's in so many protests and tries to be physically fit, is because he nearly lost his own life, and he was abused. Also the line where he shouted at Seth about how his own stepfather used him as a sex toy was really powerful.
The plot is well developed, and there aren't any holes that I can find. It's captivating, the writing is well done, and the characters are easy to connect too.
So actually, thank you, for giving me the chance to read such an amazing book.

I actually really like Seth. I mean, he can be annoying sometimes, but I can seriously relate to him a bit.
Maybe someday you'll come back to this story and finish it. Wherever in the world you are, I hope you're doing ok.

Just 2 more chapters. Please? The emotions I've invested in this story were so much, and to leave this unfinished... My heart is just broken.

I know that it's been forever, and uhh you probably forgot this fic and idk lose the file but I read this back when you were still updating and heck, it's one chapter away from ending and then you stopped and I kept recalling this fic because of it.
I loved this (and now that I've reread this, still loving this)
Hoping for a magical update for the tying the knot session

Please post the last chapter! I know it's been six year but i don't think you understand that i've practically been MIA for the past 24 hours reading this non stop because i wanted to know what happened! You cant leave me like this! Please update! :(

This is a reminder that there is no promised last chapter yet, and its been six years. I hope everything is okay with you and the whole crew, because damn, six years.
I really love this, despite how much I hate Seth. It may be easy to root for him and love him, but god is he annoying and spineless. And despite his love for his sister, he treated her like crap and constantly ignored her when she was clearly not handling things. I understand, give a girl some space, but he was too obsessed with his own fears and boy problems to realize she was having her own situations. I was constantly yelling at him, causing me throw my phone down and having to forcibly calm down.
I love Tuesday as a character (and I guess as a real person? :p) and his rage and patience. Brittney was probably my favorite because of how calming and important she was to Seth. Sade is probably another favorite for filling the token fag hag role, without blatantly filling it. Poor Jon, I know how it is and just, poor Jon.
Being non-Aussie, I knew so little of the slang, but I just went with it. Even learned a few things that I find amusing. Like fairy floss.
Overall, I'm okay leaving the last chapter as the final, even though I can only imagine what else you'd have up, court, counciling, and sethxtues finalities. It ended on a sort of nice note, with hand holding, and them not leaving. And I figure after six years, its gone. I hope things are going well with you and the crew. Because after reading all the author notes and review replies, I feel like I read it in time and actually knew you guys somewhat. And it's only a group, no one is singularly in charge of this work.

I almost wished he kill himself, almost, cause I'm not that cruel, err.. not really.

I don't like Seth, it's really tiring to read him. It's not like I do not sympathize with him but most of the time I just want to punch him.

When i started reading this amazing story i knew it was unfinished, i knew that i would totally regret reading it well i was wrong about one of those things anyway, i was concerned when i read the authors notes because of the lack of confidence, but each and every chapter was perfect and now all i regret is all of those stupid, rushed, poor quality novels i actually paid to read, when i read this for free i feel like i want to pay for it and i definitely would aswell. I also set out to encourage the author to finish it, but that seems futile and i made peace with the open ending, all i will say is that if this novel was finished and published it would be huge success. I thank the author for giving me the amazing story and hope you realise your incredible tallent for writing, i hope you all the best in life, and know that i was in a bad place and this really helped me out and i feel dumb admitting it but i thought you should know, anyway once again thank you and all the best.

honestly one of my favorite stories on this site. All your characters are vivid and easily imaginable, but so unique I couldn't hope to come up characters like them. Literally amazing. It sucks that it hasn't been completed, but I imagine that after over six years you feel a little distant from the story now. Not expecting you to finish it, but, well, I guess everyone here is hoping you will. It's been hinted at quite a bit in your author's notes but I'm guessing things aren't going too well in your life? I hope you're doing well now wherever you are, and it'd be nice to hear that you're okay, after all this time. Thank you very much for this story, and if you ever read this I hope, again, that you're doing well.
