| Bby chapter 44 . 3/8
Thank you for all the years you spent putting this to life. I seriously admire you. Hope you (and Ez) are okay. Many years have passed and I wonder where are you now. Will you ever see my comment. Do you think about tha story. Once again, if you are okay. But independent of the answer, I cannot-not-write anything about it. Because, oh my god. Where are all my words? Where do I start?
English isn't my first language and I'm pretty tired for sorry for any mistakes.
I've read it for 4 days straight and I'm not even kidding. And I do not regret any of that time and Lord knows I should be, 'cause many other things needed to be done.
I felt it. I felt this story, I didn't just read it, I have felt it and have lived it. Seth's emotions became mine at some point and I just couldn't stop scrolling the page and hitting "next" because I needed to know if it gets better, for him, and for me. I don't know if I like him. But I surely don't dislike him, as I normally hate characters (and people) who can't stand for themselves. For Seth it was just so consistent and so justified, that even though I wanted to scream "JUST TELL IT, DO IT, DON'T LET HIM/HER/THEM SAY THOSE THINGS" more than once, if he did it (while not being angry or something of course)... it wouldn't be so realistic.
And, and... everything in this story seems to be so well thought. I mean, the title's meaning revealed in 30-something chapter? And making sense in that way? And all characters' actions, little, little actions that were important long chapters later? And general little actions which made me believe that it all happened, that it is happening right now? While reading I was thinking that it should never stop, because it's so real life it shouldn't have an end.
Well, it doesn't have. But I'm not mad. Just sad, a little. At least it was this chapter, while things seems to be worked out kinda, not any of the previous, where explosion run after another explosion.
And, it was drama and angst. And it was real. So real. Not pissing me of teenage drama.
This story made me think about my life on a few levels. The abuse. Group of friends like them. The feeling that you just want to sleep through your whole life.
I don't know.
And while it wasn't optimistic at all, I see the bright side. Maybe everything isn't so bad. Maybe things can be fixed.
Clear ends aren't my forte, so, just. This story has a part of my heart, and it also IS a part of my heart now.

I guess this will always be an incomplete story?
Too bad it ends like this.

I loved the story. Are you ever going to write the last chapter?

Very well written story, here and there are a few things a good editor can polish up, but still very good overall.
My only points of criticism is of course the lack of an ending and the emotions/experiences portrayed are so vivid, poignant and stirring that their resemblance to something real is uncanny.

I love this story so much! ARGH! I hate myself for coming back to this again and again and again. Just know, Dirty Angel Toes that where ever you are- I will be waiting. I will re-read this again and tell my grandchildren's children's children about this story. I will tell them that this story breaks and mends and breaks your heart so many times that its a danger to society. They will know of SETH and TUESDAY because they are damn well worth knowing! Thanks for writing this.

Man, man. This is the second time I've read this story and I think it actually was more incredible the second time. Thank you, wherever you are- for writing this. I'll probably be back in a year to re- read it, thanks for that too, man. MAN, oh man. Man.

I've been following this story for ages. I actually haven't come back to check if you've updated for about three years, since I started med school. I loved this story. I remember once coming back and seeing you post an update saying that you wouldn't continue writing because of what was happening in your life. I... I don't understand. How. Why? Why? I know you, you're the author of your story, and you can bloody well do whatever you feel like but how about the rest of us. How could you give us this amazing story and leave us hanging? Don't you have any responsibility towards you readers that stuck with you throughout the whole time? If this was how you wanted it, then shouldn't you have written the story privately and kept it to yourself? I know I'm being unfair because you have the right to say if you don't like it, then you can take a hike. BUT it's so unfair. I think you have a duty to your readers. Your story is fantastic. Even if you don't want to write another chapter, can't you at least tell us what happens in a few sentences? Leaving us hanging is cruel. Even if you make it a terrible ending, at least tell us that ending. At least then we can put our minds at ease and hate this story. T_T but thats IF you decide to give it a terrible ending. SIgh. I just finally want you to update.. I'm sorry. I know you must've been having a terribly difficult time. Anyways, you can just ignore whatever I said, I still love your story, and me ranting and raving is proof of that. If you ever feel up to it, I'd love it if you update. But until then, ciao. Live long and prosper. I hope you're well and happy.

This story- omigod this story. It got me hooked so bad I went nuts when I realised that there wasn't an ending because of one chapter. Howdy. The emotions described by Seth was uber fantastic- I seriously loved it. I couls feel his anguish, happiness and tears so vividly it's amazing. Please update the ending.

WHAT!? Dude no you cannot end it there. It's cruel.

I am loving this book, but Tuesday is a bit of a twat. Like if they are in foster care there's a reason, be a little more sensitive

I really like this so far, it's very discriptive but not boring and the mix of complex and simple sentences really helps set the tone. It seems very professional, actually a little George Orwell esque but that may just be because I've spent the last hour doing my course work on him.

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.
