Wonderful story as always. I love the Complications story arc. Although I forgot to mention it in MTY, I love how you wrote about Jason's, and to a lesser degree Josh's, accident involving hate crime related to their sexuality.
When you entertained us about how Patrick and Josh were both bottom- there was no way their relationship would work - I thought it was quite funny and admired how you attempted a different angle to their relationship. As I have a bias regarding Dan, I am really glad he got featured at the end of this little mini-story here. I love Dan/Josh so so so so sooo much :)

wow! Josh had it tough and Im glad he realized that Kay had been mean to him -now I don't feel guilty for saying so on my previous review.

I love Dan SOSOSO much. I like the way you introduce him, after he's had the shit kicked out of it, and he's cracking jokes. Instant characterization, and he's immediately likeable.
I don't find Patrick beating people up believable. Nothing hints about him being violent, except when he's at clubs and drinking and stuff. Other than that, he's an awesome guy. So I don't see how he could go around beating people up.
ANOTHER ONE DONE. AND AREN'T YOU PROUD. HURR.

I love how Josh just turns around and runs when he sees Kay. It really shows the readers that he still isn't over him. And it's great that you tease us by averting a potential reunion, haha.
I don't like the pacing in this story as much as the last one. It's much slower, from all the internal monologue. Internal monologue's great and all, until it starts to repeat and stuff.

I love the scene where Jock leaves him at the restaurant, because of the physical descriptions of his anxiety: "Instantly my chest weighs twenty pounds more than usual. I'm grabbing onto the side of the restaurant and holding myself up, trying not to hyperventilate, because if I do I won't stop and there's no one here to give a shit." It's heartwrenching, and much more effective than if you'd just used internal monologue.
Not a huge fan of his sudden descision to be independent. It seems like he'd be scared after almost having a panic attack in public, instead of the sense of empowerment and all, especially with how reliant he's been on other people the last few chapters.

I like how Tara's remained completely oblivious through this, heehee. Way to maintain the character.
Don't like the time lapse at the beginning of this chapter. The story only just started, eh? It's a bit early for a time lapse of several months.

Hi from Review Marathon, still, link in profile.
I like all the mental issues. He showed signs of them in the other story, so it's good that all of them have come to the surface here.
I don't like "Kat"s name, it looks waaay too much like "Kay", ahaha. Threw me off for a second there.

Woo! I quite liked this story as well :)
Kind of sad how that guy was addicted to drugs, but that's reality.
Nicely written. _ Next part of the series, here we goo!

I didn't expect much from this since you describe it as a filler, but I like it a lot! I think you have really improved as a writer. I had mixed feelings about "More Than You'd Think". I absolutely loved the more recent ones about Nicky and this. (Yes I know I'm effing up the order). They feel so much more mature. It also might be because I read "More Than You'd Think" before which I forgot about at first. Anyway, I love your writing. It's so fun and the stories just pull you in. This is the second night in a row that I'm staying up late reading because of your stories. I can't wait to read the rest, and I hope you'll continue with the latest story about Nicky (I'm too lazy to remember/look up the title).

Glad to see that Josh is finally moving forward. He parting scene in the first book was heartbreaking.
| Amethystars chapter 2 . 7/4/2010
So do Kat and Ray's names make 'Kay' on purpose?
| Amethystars chapter 1 . 7/4/2010
Shit. He's pretty messed up. But I like all the new characters, and I'm excited to read the rest.
BTW, has this one been edited yet? I know MTYT has, and the one after this hasn't (according to your profile), bt this one I don't know.
| Chiara Pieta chapter 5 . 3/12/2010
You know, I think this is the best story you've written yet, even if it's supposed to just be a filler.
I like how "easy" Josh goes from one boyfriend to another. It's not a critique. I mean, it's completely believable him falling for Patrick and then going for Dan. You developed this character (Josh) way better in this fic than in the previuosly one. I'm really proud of you :P

I really loved this look at Josh's life between meetings with Kay. fjasldf;jak it was amazing.

Aw I saved this one to read last because for some reason I thought it would be weird...or something. xD
But I really did love it. I wish it had been a bit longer cause now I have nothing to read until LION gets updated. Speaking of, is it being redone? I suppose so since LYD is complete and I'm pretty sure it comes after LION.
But anyway, update soon! I'll be re-reading everything... But eventually the lack of nothing new might drive me crazy. Or I'll just go and review every chapter for every story begging for LION to be updated.
Hope you are doing well. (:
