| Pandy chapter 4 . 5/30/2014
I wish I'd reviewed earlier but I was so busy reading RLM in one go that I did not get the time. Alas, now I am forced (I use the term loosely) to do so because my rather time consuming habit of reading your stories has been abruptly cut short as there are no more chapters to read.
West, to me, has been somewhat a gray character (Jay always seems best him in my eyes), someone I neither liked nor disliked. But in my continued quest to read your writing, I came across this semi sequel starring -that- character and I am so thrilled. I cannot wait to see what you have in store for the dude. He is someone who needs to do a lot of growing up and I am hoping that journey will be a quite a ride for us. I would, along the way, like to find out the exact reason why he turned out to be quite the alcoholic; is there some terrible reason, a ghost from the past or can it be chalked up to simple teeange vices?
His female counterpart is what im most excited about. I do not mind if it is Hayley but I would love to see how you rise up to the challenge if it ends up being Adriana. She is such an antithesis to his personality, so very different, quiet, polite, a little shy basically everything that he is not (on the surface at least). It would be amazing to see how she impacts his character and vice versa, how they balance each other out. But I am getting ahead of myself, it has only been 4 chapters but i cannot help it. Whoever ends up with West, I hope you do them justice.

I remember reading Rocked Like Me years ago. I didn't know there was a (tenth of a) sequel.
Good call on making Deacon the protagonist. Even if he isn't exactly exemplary or even likeable (I'm pretty sure if he was a real person I was living with I would punch him in the face or somewhere south of it), I always found his appearances very enjoyable, so what little exists of this story is a lot of fun to read. Plus there's the fact that him being so disastrous gives a lot of room for character growth, which I also find super fun to read. I mean I'm not expecting him to slowly turn into a straight-laced devoted student, but I hope at least he matures a bit. Starts attempting to go to class regularly and get close to people.
And the supporting cast seems pretty solid so far. Seven young adults living in the same apartment is bound to be a mess, isn't it? Especially when everyone is so very idiosyncratic. I think my favourite thing so far is Hayley and Adriana's friendship, because they're practically polar opposites and yet they seemingly get along so well. It's a bit like Deacon and Kara, I guess, except their personalities are nothing alike. Adriana is adorably shy (and yet uses shortish skirts/dresses all the time?), but I think I like Hayley better right now because she's the epitome of Cool, Snarky, and Probably Not Interested in You, You Pig.
I realise the update rate for this story is less than a chapter a year, but anyway, I hope you continue this sometime.

I really like this story Deacon is the best! I think he should get together with Adrianna , opposites attract. You also write really good in third person.

I totally understand the troubles of uni. Good luck there. Hopefully the next update won't be too far off.
your loyal fan

Yay for updates! I love Deacon (even though he's an ass)! I still love Deacon & Kara together, but Jay is probably the better match for her. I'd be interested to see what could happen between Adrianna and Deacon, but you know the characters best so you'll have a better idea of who would work best with Deacon. I can't wait for the next update!

ADRIANA! PICK ADRIANA! PIC R!
Ha. I didn't even realize you updated this, it's been so long! I love Deacon. He's just so funny... in a gross way. I don't want him and Hayley together because they're both crazy and crass. Their clashing personalities would be funny, but I don't know. I just like the idea of Deacon falling for a quiet one. Anyway, you are obviously talented so put those talents to good use and write more! Pretty please. :3
I'm gonna go read your other updates now. Ta ta. ;)

Heh, I love the RLM crew. They were great. Deacon looks like he's headed for a giant breakdown, unlike Kara who was acutally pretty well balanced emotionally. No breakdowns for her. hehehe. Awaiting next chappie post exam blitz. Good luck at uni.
