Reviews for Alex and Bobby

God dammit if that wasn't the funniest thing I've read in a long time...

I loved this story! :) this is truly unique, a slash story about two guys who DON'T END UP TOGETHER. O.o and I loved it because of it! it's so sweet to read not only some love story but a story about friendship; how Bobby's attitude to being gay develops from throwing up to trying to find a boyfriend for his mate. :) and of course I laughed like mad when I read that little act the guys pulled on Bobby in the last chapter! XD god it was funny! but yes, what I want to say is that this was perhaps one of the best slash stories I've ever read (and I've read MANY) because of the warm feeling it gives to you. the friendship angle was just perfect! and of course the realism never hurts, either. (I'm sure not all gays like anal sex right away! and the fact that it is hard to find a happily-ever-after-for-the-years-to-come-partner when you're gay came up pretty nicely, too. you know, usually in MxM stories the relationship is that eternal love (usually in the form of the best friend or some mysterious man who just for some mysterious reasons falls madly in love with the protagonist) that may not be so easy to find in real life...) BUT, despite the realism, you managed to give the story a happy ending. I thank you for that, because 1. sad endings make me feel totally, utterly miserable 2. endings saying "and then they broke up after one year and two months" make me feel cheated. :P

what I wanted to say is that you're an excellent writer and I'm looking forward to reading more stories written by you! :) keep doing this!

This was a really great story. I enjoyed the third person perspective, because all of the characters were quite interesting, and I liked their unique voices. Plotwise this was really well thought out. The humor throughout was great, and you did a great job with the complications of relationships and sex. And of course, as usual, great job with dialogue, characterization, and general stye :)

And now onto the "comments from as I was reading" -

Puking right after being told by your best friend that he's gay and in love with you is not something I've ever come across... My first reaction was laughing just because of how over the top it was, but it's pretty sad for Alex. I can totally understand Bobby's reaction though.

So some guys actually explore masturbation together? This isn't the first time I've read something mentioning it but it's the first time reading it from a writer who's actually male. It's not surprising, some girls do it too... It's just funny because I would think most people would stop once they figured out what "gay" meant and started using it as an insult.

Aw, friendship awkwardly reforged... that doesn't happen often enough.

Hehe, I like the "Men's Health" way of scoping out if someone's gay. "too stunned to think -straight-". Heh. Alex was great at asking Chris out. "Holy Mother of God, I think I have a date!"

“What's in Dallas?” “Lots of other fags. LOTS of other fags.” Well, not as many as in other cities, but certainly better for Texas :)

Kinda a shame that Alex and Chris' first sex was out of pure need rather than something more, but at least it worked out well.

Aw, poor Bobby having to sell out... gotta do it for scholarships sometimes though :( Good of him to come clean about it though.

Oh, god... fashion advice... Hey, at least it's good advice, we girls like our guys hygienic at the very least!

Getting bored of sex? GASP! That's one of the first signs of relationship trouble... Chris definitely tried to get him into the culture scene in Dallas a bit fast. Nice that Alex was able to talk to Bobby about the frequency of sex to get more of a glimpse of what was wrong in his own relationship. It sucks that Alex got exposed to things in a way that made him think gay relationships were nothing like straight relationships, but mostly about sex, whether between 2 men, 3 men, or a bunch of guys in the back room of a club.

Hooray for GSAs! I didn't know other campuses had chalking for ads but it makes sense that my school isn't unique in that. And poor Chaz getting the wrong idea about Bobby... he seems like the good kind of guy for Alex tho, think I know where this is headed!

... except Bobby sucks at coming out as straight. Good job, Bobby. Funny that Denise has the same problem too. But ugh, Chaz is not the guy you want to hurt like Bobby does when he -finally- comes out. At least Chaz found the "holes in his reasoning" to believe about Alex and about Bobby not being a total jackass. Alex's reactions to what Chaz says are priceless!

And the payback... oh man, that's humiliating. Hilarious to read but utterly horrible to imagine actually happening to someone.

I loved the scene at Queer Thursdays. It's great that Bobby's comfortable enough with his sexuality and that of others to mess around and have fun like with the dancing.

Ah wonderful that Alex and Chaz both found what they were looking for in a relationship. And I love the last two lines.

Hi !

I really did like your story. What I appreciated the most about it, is that your characters really sounds real, sincere, quite believable actually. Your descriptions of Bobby's reactions and the way he evolves were pretty well-written. I had so much fun reading the dance scenes and the whole quiproquo with Chaz! And at the same time there is this feeling of sadness too in your writting, when Chaz explains what kind of guy he wants to be with for instance ( thoses lines were beautiful by the way)... It just makes the whole story quite enjoyable, thrilling even. And above all, it's happy-ending. I was smiling when I finally reached the end, so thanks for that and congrats for writting such a nice story. I definitely have to check your other stories!

(hope my english was ok, it's not my native tongue)

This story made me so...

okay,lets try this way...

While reading it,I was like - 'Okay,Bobby is gay after all'

'Nope,his not'

'Wait,wait,wait-maybe he is?'

'Uhh...don't seem like it now...'

'What the f**k?'

'Damn it,what's the matter with that kid?'

...

And so on and so forth.

And that's a good thing,even if it got me a bit frustrated cause I just couldn't figure it out.

And that says a lot,since I just have a knack for figuring these things out. And I don't mean that writers make the story line obvious,I just kinna know how they'll get it going.

Bottom line-I loved it.

AND it made me frustrated with not knowing what was goin' on.

That's good,btw :)

Erp - checked story alert instead of favs last time. Well, faving!

That was great. Very funny, and even the end...I'm glad that not everyone feels the need to make things 'realistic' by ending up in some form of tragedy. And we can make up our own minds...that's nice.

I like your writing style, the story line, and the characters...very good, all of it. Even the length. A nice chunk of a novella, it was a good read. D

Hello,

Your story was HILARIOUS. I laughed out loud to myself so many times. I must say that I was a bit disappointed with the realism of the story because Bobby was straight throughout the whole story. However, that made the story good because it was believable. COntinue writing. Good stuff
Miss DeBlanc chapter 8 . 9/13/2008
Hello! I found your story on the forum for Honeydew Sindrome and I must say that I love your story! It is very realistic and it amazes me that a man older than my dad could write something so comepletely out of a teens point of view. Not many older than 30 ever can write the thouhts of teens. My dad agrees that the bit about Bobby faking to be gay is absolutely hilarious and said he could only just imagine what it would be like to be in the closet about being straigt. Turns out hes gona have to get himselve a very queer atitude very soon, cuz he just got casted as a gay servant at a restaurant in some german movie. Imagine that! Lol Anyway, I loved this story to pieces and am going to chech out your other ones right after this dot.

Nova laVie chapter 8 . 5/27/2008
love it love it!

i really like Bobby, he turned out to be pretty darn kool in the end and i like that, unlike most stories on here, he stayed straight, it was a nice change. Sad what Alex had to go through and how he thought it was the only way :(
Cari Marie chapter 8 . 5/26/2008
Yay! I finished your story. Very nice. I read a book with sorta but not really this plot line. I was about this girl and a guy who liked each other and were getting to know each other over the internet but they were both neverous so they had their gay best friends do the im-ing for them. So then the two gay guys start to like each other but they think it is the other girl/boy. So in the end the figure it out and it was happy ever after, or something like that.

So I'm reading Alex and Bobby right now. Only 2 or so chapters left... it's very...um... *squee* is the only work I can come up with.

So I don't put anything on my profile cause I don't write so not many people look at it. So no, I'm not 12. I happen to be 18. So about me trying to find you... Don't worry, my Dad's in the military so I could try to convince him to take me on a "vacation" right. Because I totally would, just b/c I find it funny.

LMAO! Oh, I was in fits when I read this. Poor Bobby. No good deed goes unpunished. He seems to have a thing for Fag-hags that like to tease him. I love this story. The characters are fleshed out and you're narrative voice and diction are amazing.
