|Reviews for To Love a Loser
| mikidagreat chapter 9 . 10/6/2010
I love Oliver, he's such a woobie. But I fucking loathe Felix with a passion. I hate how he's made to be the victim in everything that even Winnie sides with him. Yeah, I get that Oliver was being a dick but... this is so bad.
"Jeez, Oliver, it's not like he's done anything to you!" Yeah, Winnie saying this line really pissed me off.
I know I'm being totally irrational, because Felix really HASN'T done anything... But he's oblivious to the fact that he's totally handsome and everyone wants him (yeah, so's Oliver but it's in a way that doesn't come off as annoying).
...but the look on Felix's face and the hurt in his voice...
God. Every time I read "the hurt on Felix's face" or "the flash of hurt in his eyes" I want to punch him in the face. Seriously. ARG

WHOA THAT WAS SO INTENSE
| mikidagreat chapter 3 . 10/6/2010
I remember reading your other fic, "Quinntessential" a while back- I also remember taking it off of my alerts list. Now, this was mostly because I was sick of getting alerts to stories on here (I never read them anyway) and not because there was anything wrong with your story in particular.
I was browsing this site again and stumbled upon this (which I read because I recognized your username) and... well.
I remember now why I gave up on slash fics. Your story is pretty well written, for the most part, but I can't help but get annoyed sometimes.
I hate how Felix seems so submissive. I like how the main character (Oliver) has problems with his best friend (because I can relate). I hated the chapter where they wake up in bed together because I was expecting what happened next (that Felix would be the, and pardon the term, *uke* in the relationship) and I hate that everything and everyone's lives revolve around Felix.
Yeah, I just hate Felix.
Don't get me wrong, this is NOT A FLAME. I think you're a good writer, but I just wanted to have my opinion known. This site is where I used to indulge in my fantasies and read perfect stories with people with perfect coming out stories and... now it's not because I can't get over my dislike of stories like this.
SO I'M SORRY if this review didn't make any sense but I think you could really improve on your writing if you made all your characters a little like Oliver- one with flaws, but ISN'T the victim, strong and equal in a relationship (not that I think that being on the bottom makes one weak, or that all gay couples in real life switch- because I know that isn't the case for a lot of people. But it just pissed me off that Felix seems like SUCH a slash-fic-gary-stue).
Of course, since I've only read until chapter 3, things could change in the net few chapters. So this review could be for nothing. I'm going to keep reading, of course, but I'd just like to let you know that not all readers are as willing to read stories to the end as me and that this was the impression I had of the first three chapters.
Sorry for the bad grammar and run-on sentences and overuse of parentheses. :D

The story line is really something. :) It's been pulling me in to read more and more. I just have the feeling that Oliver is still not into having THAT kind of relationship with Felix, but will always consider him to be his closest friend. Oliver does seem to be constantly pressured by Felix into this more intimate relationship...hmm...I can't really explain it properly, but Felix really does appear to be the only one committed to the "I love you" part of the relationship, and he is so desperate for his feelings to be returned that he isn't giving Oliver the time to think the relationship over for himself. Even though Oliver had all these "revelations" in Chapter 21, I just don't think that he is IN LOVE with Felix like Felix is with him.
WHOO. I just needed to get that out. I feel kind of uncomfortable and awkward for Oliver though, like this isn't right just yet...
I would really enjoy reading up on how you conclude the story though. I'm sure it will all come out relatively nicely in the end!

Just re reading this story again because I'm dying from your lack of updates D: But I absolitely LOVE this story :D And I was listening to Want You Bad by The Offspring whilst reading this and it TOTALLY fits :D

I don't normally read slash.
"Because that's life, right? You're naturally going to be biased toward your own point of view, maybe even blinded by it, because you never really know what other people think or feel. Hahaha, dep stuff. :P" ... Just wanted to say that I'd be disappointed if "paying attention to what other think" is DEEP deep. Because then, our standards are just way, too, low.
The chemistry wow.
I'd like to see more of what Oliver's and Felix's parents are like, how Felix came out to his mother, etc.
o_o That Brazilian guy is hot.

Dude, Oliver is a dick-hole! I LOVE IT! any hyuu, can you please update quintessential? I love this story but that one is my favorite, pretty much of all time. :D
| akldsjflksdjflakdsjf chapter 21 . 9/12/2010
Please, please update soon.
I've been sick all weekend and have been living off of this story.
I haven't even eaten yet.
Winnie is the bomb, I love her.
And it's about damn time Oliver woke up and smelled the coffee.
Dumbass, yet I love him at the same time.
Arg, update this, AND Quintessential, soon.
I command you to.
Love, your calcium deficient friend,

I wasn't planning on reading this story, i just clicked on it to read the first couple of lines because it was late and then i just COULDN'T STOP! do you have any idea how hard that is to do? your writing is really carefree and reeaally god! I just love Felix. seriously. and I adore Oliver. they're both so easy to relate to and love.
| SweetHeartx chapter 1 . 9/7/2010
Oh, my, God.
I can't even put in words how amazing this fanfiction is, seriously. I read it in only a couple of hours; I just couldn't stop! It's truly one of the best fanfictions one this website, I really hope you will update soon, because I -we- really need to know what will happen next.
I'm so glad Oliver realised how lucky he is to have a guy like Felix that loves him so much. I wish the best for the both of them, they are perfect for each other (although some people would say Felix does deserve someone better, I don't think so, they complete eachother and that's what I like about their relationship).
So, please please please, update this soon, I'm so impatient to read the next chapter and I'm not sure I can wait months!
By the way, you are an excelent author, I read your other slash fanfiction and it also amazingly well written!

Damn after all the fighting and attempts of getting together it just takes a little advice from mama to get him into his right mind.
