Wow that was amazing! That was beautiful and I really enjoyed it. I loved the growth in the characters and the love between B and A. Yeah you wrote this like 3 years ago but I wanted to tell you that this fic is probably the best non-anime fic I've ever read. Mocha

I don't know why I didn't review last time I read this story- granted I read it ages ago, But I was bored on the internet the other day and found this again- and I loved it even more the second time. This is just the most amazingly written story I have read.
I hope that you do get published some day- I will be sure to buy your work if I ever see it!
I honestly can't describe how beautiful this story truly is...argh, I'm killing the story by my crap review. But I loved it, like Ben and Anthony love each other! Haha. They are just so gorgeous. You portrayed all your characters beautifully...
Do you know what's funny- I thought I remembered an ending to this story- but it must have just been the ending I had thought of in my head...I don't know if you think that's a credit to your writing, but I do. That you could create such a vivid story, and have such a sweet ending, and then I can remember what I thought happened originally...amazing...
I think I'm rambling now. And I have to go.
Loved it so much. You truly are an amazing writer. I hope you get published. Awesome, my friend, absoloutely awesome.

I know this is an old story, but I decided to reread it from a new perspective. I don't think Anthony's parents are really that terrible. As a mother I know that it's impossible not to love your child. And if you love your children, you want what's best for them... but no parent ever knows how to raise a child perfectly, you just have to do the best you can. Parents who raise their children, like Anthony was raised, usually do end up getting unpleasant surprises. In my parents case, at 18 I announced I was pregnant. However, I don't consider my parents bad parents. I sympathise with Anthony, though, that often you feel like there is a huge pressure put on you to be perfect. As a parent, its easy to see that you want the best for your children, and you'll never hold it against them if they mess up. the instinctive love for a child is too strong. And Anthony's parents have that love...Anyway, loved the chapter, as usual... on to the rest...

I do realize that it is probably a bir stupid to review a story which is this 'old' but I just... I stayed up 'till 1 fucking AM on a school night just to finish it so I'll review anyway. As you might have guessed from that bit of information I really, really liked this. Loved the ending: I've always been crazy about being allowed to figure the future out by myself. I'd write more but lack of sleep has momentarily turned my brain into useless mush so I'll just say: Good job on this one!

i liked the story allot, but i cant say im happy its over so quickly. i enjoyed reading it, and now im going to see more of your work, and if there is none, i'll die! well, i might look at your favorited list, or i'll go to where i found this story and look for more, yeah, that makes sense (well, more than dying). basically all i want to say is good job! great sotry, and i had fun reading it.

he needs to tell them, or maybe i just want to see him tell them, i mean i have to know how they would except it. well, you already finished this stoy, so all i really have to do is read on...hm...that gives me an idea.

I have been reading this story for almost a week now, because with school, family and homework we can do what we want all the time.
I found it, I look at the summary and decided that I should read it.
I loved your characters, I really hate ones of them...
Anthony and Ben's relationship is so lovely and cute, really great... xD
I would like to know what happenned to them by your point of view... but now I just have to imagine.
His dad was really enraged... it must be difficult to be raised up in a family with missionaries :S
Oh... well, I don't know xD I really liked the story... but now I'm so tired (3:53 am) to actually tell you exactly what I loved about it xD
The point is that it's really great xD
Now I'm gonna see if you have another stories :D
GREAT STORY! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Hey. Love the story. Noticed a few technical problems in this section (ones I'd normally overlook, but this effects the read of it)
"Ben trudged to where he'd parked his gym bag and regular clothes, and they seemed to by sympathetically apologizing for the loss, sitting familiar and neatly folded on the small wooden bench."
I can't make heads or tails of what is meant by "and they seemed to by"
Oh man... the last chapter... that really struck home. The whole depression thing and the eerily familiar familial (hehe, couldn't resist) conversation with, in my case my mom, but still. It's a very convincing and realistic thing. Good show!

okay. just read the whole story and while i liked it, a few points to consider:
1. it got a little boring half-way through. i was going to stop reading, but i had to find out what happened even if parts of it got a little uninteresting. ;P
2. consistency. it seems to me some details got scrambled up sometimes. it could be my imagination, though. hmm.
3. the ending should have been more conclusive. i know you said it was up to the reader, but i felt like there was no sense of closure. it seemed like a rushed ending. like, "OMGTRAUMA CRYCRY i love youtheend."
and with that, i'm off~
p.s. i really did enjoy the story, i just like to provide constructive criticism, you know. :)
