I've gotten into a habit of crying every chapter, not bawling, but a few tears because of Sam. I think that's what i like most about this story. It's real. I'm becoming too in love with your works. Thanks for the update.

What a wonderful-depressing, but wonderful-story. I love it so much. It's so believable, which makes it truly heartwrenching, but I love it, and I was confused when I realised there wasn't a "next chapter" arrow. xD I'm looking forward to more. Keep up the great work. :)

I think this is officially my second favorite story that you've written, second only to With Intent, because that will win forever and ever.
"There's no adequate way of explaining, unless you already understand." Now isn't that the truth! But just the way you explain makes me think that I kind of CAN understand, even though I don't already.

I try to compare Than having to take care of Evan and me and my own eleven yeras old (I'm an au-pair so I'm comparing the "I have to suddenly accept the authority of a stranger" part). Stangely enough it makes Evan all the more believable. Not like those perfect kids you only find in stories. And this chapter answered a little bit my question of what Neil sees in Tham. I'm glad though I was expecting something more along the lines of "I like the colour of your eyes they make your hair look funny" or something.

The tense threw me a bit but then gets explained the 'love should be present tense' I liked that.
I'm really impressed by how you describe feelings; the pace of the story is really good and the grieving and learning to trust/live-on has a very real feel to it, never a quick fix move on for humour and romance but a slow process with pov changing to show there is light and love at the end.

Great chapter! Maybe I am monotonous but I want to tell you that I love how you describe the relationship between Ewan and Nathan.

Good chapter. I felt it was short but I liked it. I like getting to know Ewan and Nathan. Sorry for this short review but it's 2:00 am and I have an early class. Hope you update soon! :)

Another lovely chapter! I enjoy reading 'Than's references to events in the past with Sam. It makes you very much aware that he is not over him, that he never will be, but it's not...angry. It's not even bitter. It's just sort of regretful, but at the same time, there's nothing he could have done to change things. As much as he may feel like it was his fault, it wasn't. Simultaneously, you have to also be aware that while Sam will always be extremely important, Neil has his own place now. On a side note, I particularly like Sam's line of, "Well screw them then, we won’t go." That sounds about accurate in dealing with annoying extended family members. :)
I can't wait for the next chapter!

Not much happens, but at the same time we learn a lot. Nice chapter.
| kazoua chapter 20 . 6/21/2009
This was such a sad chapter... Aw. Than has really depressing thoughts. Although they are, yeah, in a way realistic, the things he brings up in his head are sad.

Ah, I got behind on reading! D: Oh well. Got a few chapters reading, which was quite fun. I still love this oodles. I'm glad he's making nice with Angela...I'm rather fond of her. She sounds lovely. And amusing. Ah, and Neil still amuses me with his flirtatious teaching XD They're so sweet together. And Ewan's reactions to them also makes me laugh a lot. At least he's basically accepting of them! I'd forgotten they'd have to visit Em's house. That part was so sad... Good thing Angela was there. I wonder what other difficulties they'll have to face...?

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

This is actually the first time I got a story alert email since I got myself a fictionpress account. I really like this story. I wish I could be more eloquent, but it's hard for me to pinpoint why I like things. I guess for this one it's that it's sad but not too sad. It feels so real.
