| Butterfingers chapter 18 . 7/19/2008
I'd like to start off by saying that I don't review often, so I might not be very good at this. When I do review, its only because a particular story has caught my eye and captured my heart. This story has, most definitely, done both. I enjoy absolutely everything about it; especially the way Mike's and Nick's relationship has developed (yay, sexy shower scenes and Nick's mom mistaking him for dougie! I snickered!). I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that there were already 18 chapters, because I've read through every single one and I felt like I couldn't possibly have stared at the computer screen for that long, but I did and I have.
Nick makes me laugh and Mike sounds super sexy. Dougie, too, is absolutely giggle worthy. He makes me smile like nobody else in this story does. EVERYBODY is wonderful and EVERYTHING is wonderful. In this last chapter, particularly, Katie made me grin. She's pretty cool, for a thirteen year old. ;D
Also, I'd just like to mention that I've had to double take a couple of times, because I'm Canadian and a couple of words and phrases that I came across made very little sense to me. Then, I would pause, think about it and then chuckle. I couldn't believe I was so ignorant before as to believe that our dialogue was limited to the old soccer vs. football thing. I absolutely love that toilet paper is called bog roll in some places of the world. I look for things like that in this story, now, because you've made me incredibly curious. haha
You're usually A when it comes to updating, but I'm always anxious for more. Please, don't keep me waiting long. This story's on my favorites.

Oh goodness, this was kinda intense. hehe It's terribly funny that Treacle is being so randomly nice and Doug gets it in his head to try and out Mike and the whole identity thing comes back into play! Not to mention Angel Boy and Lucy! Hmm, what was up with the balls? Curious, curious, all of it is.
haha I know what you mean about being a perfectionist, I'm bit of one with writing myself. But I wish you all the best of luck anywho and I liked the chapter. Maybe not the best but certainly no where near the worst!

haha he broke a nose hahahahhahah HI-FREAKIN-LARIOUS!
| fam chapter 18 . 7/17/2008
Is his name really not Mike? OMG! I can't help but think that he's a psychopath who meet Nick on the bus and then became obsessed with him and and then started stalking him and then took a gym teacher job at the school becasue Nick goes there and then moving into Nicks house!
...I'm such a loser...lol
Please update :)

Angelboy no more. XD Oh boy. What a day Nick seems to be having.
And Dougie... when will you ever get a clue?
| Natasha5 chapter 18 . 7/17/2008
Hmm. What is up with Mike and this whole mystery-thing? Is he pretended to be somebody else? It's just so... odd.
| Ty Taco chapter 18 . 7/17/2008
This chapter was amazing.
His boyfriend/teacher even picks on him.
That must really suck.
It's kool that his sister knows.
At least then they can be themselves.
WTF is his problem?
I really don't like that douche!
He acts like a perfect ARSE!
I love English expressions.
At least...I think that is one.
If my foreign exchange student is correct.
And he has lived there for the past 16 years.
I think I'm moving there one day.
Cuz ya'll accent ROX!
Just though I'd say you, your accent (I'm gonna assume since you said you live there you have one) and this story are absolutely amazing.
| Cattails chapter 18 . 7/17/2008
Well, knew he'd half to snap at some point by the end of that chapter. I'm amazed he lasted that long. Ugh, being assumed to be dating Dougie? That...wow. That's just cruel (my opinion of Dougie keeps going down XP). But my opinion of Katie keeps going up! XD Seriously, not giving away her older brother's secret? That's pretty awesome. But back to Dougie; he's a jerk/dolt. I mean really. Does he not understand the consequences for outing someone? Geez. I would've smacked him. But I guess that would've given the secret away... Okay, I laughed when it was James who got lobbed in the face with a ball. It just seemed appropriate :P Ah, but now he's in trouble... He really had a bad day, didn't he? Looking forward to the next chapter!

I noticed a don't instead of a doesn't at one point, but there don't seem to be any huge n' obvious typos.
I'm curious as to why he's JTR on the schedule but his name is Mike . . . perhaps I've been reading too much romantic suspense, but my head is now creating a story where he killed the real gym coach etc., etc.

because life isn't hard enough already
| Wet Duckling chapter 18 . 7/17/2008
It was incredibly mean and even cruel of you to end it like that. Just for the record.
I'm not sure whether I've reviewed this story before (possibly not, because I'm a bad reviewer), but now I just have to break my silence and tell you how great it is - and it gets better with every new chapter. At the beginning I was sceptical about whether you could pull the teacher/student relationship off believably - but you did it brilliantly and totally naturally, for which I'm grateful and enlightened, because previously I was certain such a thing could not be written in a way that would convince me.
Nick is such a typical teenager. He reminds me slightly of myself at that age, as I tended to overdramatise everyting as well. *pets Nick* I like him. :-)
I wonder why Mike would lie about his given name of all things, and that to several people - after all, it's not only Nick who knows him as Mike, but also Nich's whole family. I remember that Nick's mum was already calling Mike 'Michael' in one of the first chapters - actually, I think it was the chapter in which Mike moved in. Maybe he's trying to hide from someone?
With the risk of sounding intolerant, I'm the opinion that Lucy shouldn't have started anything with James out of respect to her friend, so I don't feel sorry that James got hit at all. *shrugs*
I'll be waiting (im)patiently for the next chapter. Thanks for the lovely story, and keep it on!

I say the prick deserved to get a ball to the face. o.o I don't remember if Treacles boyfriend got Dougies number, did he? I want to see whats gonna happen between him and Dougie! lol Bring on the mansex please!
| Midnights Scream chapter 18 . 7/17/2008
*snicker* I would beam him in the face too though I don't think I could break his nose. lol. So no one is going to know and I have a feeling if Doug finds anything Mike will be wiht Chris. that could be really bad. I don't think Doug is above blackmail. :) great chapter!

Oh fuck Australian weather! Give me strom clouds and endless rain any day. I dont get to enjoy winter fashion anymore -sob-, whats the point in a leather jacket and expensive scarves if you cnat even wear them in winter?
This chapter made me happy, very entertaining. I even stopped watching FMA to read it. Small miracle. Japanese cartoon's can glue you pretty fuckin well.
This story deserves all the flattery it can get. I mean, it isnt perfectly writen or nuthin, but if its engaging enough to keep my mind ADHD mind entertained then youre doing somehting right.
I like youre charcaters best, theyre so real.
I cnat help but romantasise things when I write. Pretty people, unrealistic situations, impossible emotional depths etc, etc. This is like the airconditioning on a Japanese train going to Shibuya at six o'clock in the summertime. Meaning, even hrough the train is so backed your face is pressed to the glass, and your ass it pressed to some pervy asian buisness man, it's still a releif form the heat outside...
Hn- That was an interesting comparision if I od say so myself.
Deh- Ich Liebe dich! I pant like a fluffy Bernese Mountain Dog in summertime waiting for the next chapter...Yeah, not at all stange.
If James did get his nose broken, make sue you give him big black eyes, a detail often missed. My brother broke my nose and I looked like I had permanent gothic makeup for at least a week.
Oh deary! I dun know why I like this story so much. It's just AH...
Well, yes. Keep writing, give me more. Das ist gute.
Domo Arigato meine kleine kinder.
