Reviews for The Not So Celibate Life
sporkess chapter 14 . 7/28/2007

Sorry I haven't reviewed the last couple of chapters. After my exams I died for a while, and didn't read any fpress stories for a while. Now I've actually woken up a bit, I've been reading through all the old author alerts.

I wasn't really expecting the chapters that I found. The style rather bemused me. After these detailed chapters in his highschool, you suddenly sped up and got jerky, hopping from time to time. Had I been writing the story I would have tried for a smoother transition, like ending it with him going home, and settling into a dull life, and then doing a 'ten years later' thing, just showing the intervening time with flashbacks or musings, and doing a detailed dive back into the storyline, showing in a slower way his pointless relationship with William and his return to Robbie.

Still. While I was rooting for a happy ending rather earlier, I do agree with you that as teenagers Robbie and Gabe were sort of doomed, and they had a much better shot as adults. Though I would have preferred to see their tumultuous break-up in actual storyline rather than reported later.

Gah. Looking up at this review, I realise that breaking my silence just to be critical isn't particularly friendly. Sorry about that. But while I do like this story, I think it lacks the magic that The Interview had, and I think there were a couple of places it let itself down.

In any case, I'll be watching for the next couple of chapters with interest. Until then, farewell.

The consolation to Gabriel being so messed up is that this is fiction and thus will end well. (Hopefully.)

This story has so much drama! I love it! XD Gabe has such a messed up life. He seems like one of those people that has that 'lost puppy' look. Update soon!
Liviania chapter 12 . 7/13/2007
You had one set of sentences that semi-repeated at the end of the second? part.

Aw, poor Gabe. He's trying so hard.

Qryous chapter 3 . 7/6/2007
ha lol, what kind of teacher is this 'Henri' o.o Certainly not one with much self control lol x]
Qryous chapter 2 . 7/6/2007
The sex scenes weren't bad really. At least they weren't ackwardly written,and they're certainly better than anything I could do. Anywayz, poor Gabe just has to run into his past customer didn't he? Feel sorry guy. ]
Qryous chapter 1 . 7/6/2007
Hm, I've never read a story quite like this one before. Quite a bit of M/M slash but never one based on the main character as a prostitute. Well, now that I think about it I might have read one a bit like this on But that was ages ago so, forget it xD. I quite like the start, and I can tell the story is just a little rushed, but it's very fluently rushed and to my taste so.. I like it yep :)
i-see-faeries chapter 11 . 6/28/2007
Aw, I hope this isn't the end. I love this. Robbie and Gabe are so cute, and this has more twists than a roller coaster. It's beautiful, hot, and just wonderful. Love. Update soon?
the Berserker chapter 11 . 6/18/2007

I love Robbie so much it actually DID make tears gather in my eyes when Amy said he tried to kill himself.

Gabriel needs to go back!
Abstruse Blue chapter 11 . 6/18/2007
For this chapter...I love Ira and Robbie's attempted suicide seemed probable, so I wasn't too surprised. All very sad though. Another excellent read for me!
