Great read! The details bring it all to life in my head. Would love to se Eddie back on the stage, maybe even broadway. Who knows, if his drama coaches plays were produced...Anyway, thanks.

I'm just in love with this two. I've read Act III and nearly immediately looked for this one (I say nearly because your story made me stay awake reading it untill 1:15 am... And I had to get up at 7 for college, so...) and I just love it. Just so you know, these two stories are in my list of favs, as well as you :)
Keep writing like that, ok? :D

This is great, keep on going!
I did read the first part of this story and I loved it!

I love pretty much everything you've done here. Why 'pretty much'? Because with all of the talk about Max's soccer skills, I was sure he would have been drafted by a league somewhere or at least tried out for it. But meh, the rest is perfect.
I love how they ended up in an apartment and how everything isn't peachy keen with their lives. That's so realistic it made the story that much more perfect for me.
I like Eddie a lot better in the sequel, but for some reason he doesn't get better than Max - who I just adore.
The sex scenes were beautiful and not trashy in the least. I wasn't uncomfortable reading them, like I can sometimes be, instead I wanted to read more - maybe a whole chapter of cuddling and kissing - that's how well you write ).
Bah I hate to say goodbye to these characters but I do so with a fondness and a permanent imprint of them in my head. Thanks again, for creating such lovely beings.

What do you MEAN you can't write these? That was the most amazing sex scene I've ever read. Whew, that was hot.

gosh that was adorable... :D
| naraka chapter 4 . 4/12/2010
the sequel is fantastic and the sex scene between them was delicious too, although I think the rate should be mature... I'm not so sure because it only has one sex scene *shrugs* I just don't want anyone flaming this amazing story n_n
it was exciting to see them in their new life, even though they had to struggle because they are poor. The fight they had about the brochure was essential because it's something all couples go through when the paycheck isn't enough and a little bit more of cash would help them a lot... though it's hard to do something Eddie doesn't want to do... it's compromise, as Eddie said, a relationship works by being 1% firm and 99% compromise...
Max's parents were exactly the type of people I imagined, they accepted Eddie into their home and they were happy to see their son happy as well ;P I actually expected to have a butler or something welcoming them inside but the maid accident was enough to prove how rich they are, not to mention the number of rooms the house seems to have... I want one so badly!
it was a small sequel and I think it's good as it is e.e

Great sequel - I like especially that it gives a bit more insight into Eddie - I mean the Act I in the very end did give all the reasons why Eddie felt like he had to say no to Max, but this one gives a bit more 'flesh' to that statement.
| Allanasha Ke Kiri chapter 4 . 11/17/2009
one word, cute. ... no adorable. I love these two. They're just ... perfect, I suppose, for how different they are.
| big.break.and.laryngitis chapter 4 . 10/26/2009
OMG I am so sad I didn't find this until now. Act I was like the best fucking story ever and I read it ages and ages ago, but I never bothered to check for a sequel. Only, now that I have, I am so happy and my heart is full of fluff and wonderment. Go you. This kicks the butt off of everyone else ever. Great job :D

At first I wasn't sure about the non-chronological order, but I actually really like that you ended where you did. Especially since I spent the first three thinking "Eddie's calmed down an awful lot," and this pulled the characterization back into focus. Also helps it end on a less...grim...note. My major gripe with this one is that the "starving lovers" gig is a bit unbelievable, given what we learn about Max's family later. I've done the Ivy League schtick, and really rich kids don't fall between the cracks, especially when they've got sympathetic, wildly wealthy parents like Max's. I had to teach my sophomore year roommate how to turn on a vacuum cleaner, and the same summer I was working at a grocery store because there are no other jobs in this economy she was a personal assistant to the Hilton executives, not because her parents have anything to do with the Hilton family, but because families with money have connections, and money makes opportunities. I don't believe Max's family wouldn't have a connection somewhere, especially in NYC. It's sort of romantic in that 'through thick and thin' way, but it just makes the situation feel somewhat manufactured. Anyway that's just a chip on my shoulder; otherwise I'm really glad you wrote this, because it's easy to forget that the really difficult part of a relationship isn't getting together, as hilarious as you made it here, it's staying together, and you've balanced conflict with sweetness perfectly. I look forward to reading more from you! :)

I love Max and Eddie, but I'm a little confused. In Chapter 3 Max and and Eddie had graduated and moved to New York, but in Chapter 4 Max's father asked Eddie what he was majoring in. Is the time-line just not important in the sequel, was this a slip up, was this on purpose?
| Nezrin chapter 4 . 9/6/2009
Wonderfully and sinfully sweet. I love these two together. They never fail to break my heart and glue it all back together whenever I see them being romantic together. I love the sap, I love the fluff, I love everything about them. Just, oh my God. This is great. So great.

in the end love is all that matters
