Awesomeness! I can't wait till all my questions are answered! Great chapter, I hope you update soon!
Ty Taco chapter 39 . 6/14/2008
I'm glad you're back in action, because this story is hard to follow with the HUGE update gap.

So, now that I am back on track with the plot, hopefully the steady updates will keep me reading.


Not hopefully...definitely.

As long as there isn't another huge gap in the near future, you have one reader secured.

Yay! We're making leeway! Alright, so Zeke should probably never drink again... :S
Thread of Life chapter 39 . 6/14/2008
Wow! Quick update!

Err I really want to know what happened!

And I kinda miss the Zeke/Sam/Zeke friendship. Did we find out what happened to the other Zeke and Sam? I remember she was upset..

This is very interesting. It can be confusing at times, especially with the Zeke/ Zeke thing, hard to distinguish. I love all the metaphors and symbolism that you use and the allusions to history. It adds something to the story that makes you feel like reading it may possibly make you smarter instead of wasting your homework/supposed-to-be-studying-for-AP-Euro-Test time ). There's some spelling/grammer errors here and there so be careful about that, but not too many. Some of the characters are a bit too oblivious for realism- like the whole Ellie/Kevin thing, SOMEone would have caught on by now.. its been months. But maybe not, people can be oblivious when they don't WANT to believe that something is true, aka denial.

and OMG it tok me forever to get the whole Zeke name thing- Zach, Ellie, Kevin, Echo. When I did I was like OHH! out loud, which wasn't really best because then I got some weird stares.. But anyway yeah, that's really clever. I was always wondering why they would pick that particular name, it seems to random, but now it makes perfect sense ).

Overall your story is good, the cliff-hamngers keep the reader interested and wanting more but getting answers instead of more questions is always nice.. too many questions can ruin a perfectly good story. And I'm worried about the update thing. I just found this story today and only after reading it all did I realize you started it 2years ago. If you're going to take so long to update, the least you could do is make the chpaters longer. I know you're probably very busy with college coming and all, but more often then once every 2-5months would be nice..

So anyway, keep writing, your style is really good, like I said I love your symbolism and historic comments, and I also love how you put random flashbacks all over the place. Very interesting to read. Will be looking forward to a new update, hope it's soon )

hm...interesting development...update soon.
Cattails chapter 38 . 6/10/2008
Dun dun DUN! I really love the description of the sky. And the statement. Although it was apparently directed at the wrong person...Anthony should just tell him what happened at the party. It's like having alcohol-induced amnesia! Which would suck. I'm looking forward to finding out what happened!

Thread of Life chapter 37 . 3/18/2008
I love this story! I love your little historical/literature allusions. You are great with your characters too.

Although I admit, I did get a little confused about what happened when he called Sam.

Keep up the good work! I can't wait for the next chapter.

Is Ellie and Kevin together? I wonder about that...
ddz008 chapter 1 . 2/3/2008
I just started reading your story and I must say it looks interesting. I suppose we'll get to know more about why did they decided to name their children with the first letter of their four names. What happened to the other friends? I hope that Zeke (the new one) can help Zeke (the old one) to forget Charlie and maybe he can also help him (the new one) in something we still don't know. Ill keep reading :)
b chapter 37 . 1/30/2008
i love reading this! it's in need of a tiny bit o' beta-reading for spelling and grammar and formatting (sometimes trying to figure out who's narrating is hard!), but it really is like a cheesy telenovela: good, bad, complicated, and utterly captivating. and the writing is fine stuff- some of the digressions are awesome, especially when it just randomly reverts to history lessons.

oh, and my favorite line?

"I was in a car of schizophrenic Hellen Kellers."

it was then that i realized, "shit, i'm not gonna stop reading this, am i." XD

hope you see it through to the end! (and if you'd like a beta i'd definitely volunteer!)
