I absolutely loved this story! Teenage romances usually turn me off because they become boring after awhile. The Lighthouse was absolutely refreshing! It was not a cliche story and was enjoyable to read from beginning to end. I especially was intrigued that the story was from the POV of the best friend, not the boy discovering he was in love with his best friend. I think that's why I enjoyed the story so much. I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm excited to read the sequel now!

I I love this! I see there's a sequel about Stuart. I so hope there's more about Marcon and Wilson in there. I'd love to read more about them.

Me again! Still quite enjoying the story. If you want more accurate information about Cal's dorm system you can see here, because I'm pretty sure these halls in the story don't actually exist: .
Also I'm pretty sure there's no D1 (Division 1) Men's Lacrosse team, there's only a Club Team, so actually Berkeley may not be the best place for Macon and Wilson if they plan on going professional, or at least playing seriously. Therefore there would also not be a poster of the Men's Lacrosse team (unless it's of the Club team, but I'm not sure they put out posters since they generally get less money than D1 teams).
Also also, I'm not sure Facebook was like, a thing that people in high school could use in 2007. I'm pretty sure at that point it was only restricted to select universities, so you might want to check that out.
If you have any questions regarding Berktown stuff feel free to ask away.

Hi! So first of all, I really enjoy this story. Seems pretty realistic for what high school was. But second, as a current UC Berkeley student, I think some of your details may be wrong...As far as I know, there is no Kenders Hall. I'm sure Wikipedia has good information about Berkeley campus, but if you'd like to make the story more accurate you could use Cunningham, Putnam, Deutsche, or a variety of other dorm buildings instead (although some like Towle are mostly reserved for junior transfers). Also, as early as 2010 all admissions and housing stuff happened online. Not sure about 2007 but seems reasonable it could have happened online then too. :)

You know that feeling you get in your chest? The one where it feels as if your so happy that your heart grew and your rib cage isn't big enough to fit it anymore? Where your breath gets short and you just can't keep a smile off your face?
That's how I felt at the end of this story. I loved it so much it just took my breath away. :)
There's really nothing more to say.
Love this so much.

This story has been AMAZING to read! Its pacing, descriptions and characteristics are very well depicted, clearly demonstrating your capabilities as a talented writer.
Unlike most other slash fics, "The Lighthouse" portrays the protagonists with clearly masculine characteristics. It's refershingly different to the emo theme that most other slash writers veer towards, illustrating their protagonist as being abused and weak-willed or almost always having overtly feminine qualities. Thankfully "The Lighthouse" instead chose to form the central pairing between macho guys and does this successfully by depicting them convincingly with their testosterone-driven behaviour.
Attention-to-detail has also been obvious in the plot's structure, which progressed at a realistic and tentative pace. Macon and Wilson's relationship was believable thanks to the depth that you consistently highlighted in their friendship. Both show genuine concern towards one another and their relentless commitment to preserving and progressing their closeness gives a very romantic touch without being corny or clichéd.
Moreover details throughout the chapters were clearly organised with plenty of consideration. It's tough to depict believably the sequence of events that led to a skirt-chasing "straight" boy falling in love with his masculine friend. However you achieved this by pacing the progression comprehensively so that it doesn't jump from one development to another. For example Macon finding himself becoming attracted to Wilcon since finding out about his sexuality was made more reasonable from the deep friendship they shared.
Thank you for sharing such a wonderful story. I hope you'll benefit even more from the talent you obviously possess. I look forward to more of your work in the future!
