Okay, so everything that happens in chapter one is a little too upfront, but I'm glad I continued. By chapter two I was pretty hooked on the characters. I love the future that you so clearly laid out for them within the frame of a short story, and that line "We're not nice boys. We're not animals either."
I also appreciate the way you made big Nicky so protective and loving of his son at the same time he was being a complete bigot. It's confusing, but gives the feeling that the love was even stronger for that.
It's easy to sympathies with all the readers asking for more, but I will not join them. It's best to leave wanting more.

loool i luved it - i admit that people were asking u for updates due to the story having the feel that it should continue but this feel of a subtle ending works rather well here.

Ahhhh that's awesome! Pretty damn badass without being totally depressing like a lot of mob stories get. Sweet too in a weird way.

Ugh, that was so good. The set-up (mafia etc.) is not something I'm usually into at all BUT this has got me wishing I could write something like it. Believable, realistic, good dialogue, well-thought out characters, and likeable characters too- esp. considering their careers. I know Joey described himself as a "red-blooded, hard-headed, gun-toting closet case" but he just seemed like a nice guy, not particularly 'mafia'; that's not a bad thing, I was rooting for them all the way through!
Also just want to pick out that description of "sunrise in the city" in Ch.2- LOVED it. The ending was romantic without being sentimental at all. Probably if I spent a long time thinking I'd find some nitpicky thing I could give you for concrit but the truth is, first reading, straight off, loved it. Cheers!

One word. Awesome. :D I love the hit-and-run feel of the whole story. Like, 'let's pick a gun and run with it'. Excellent.
*goes off to read your other stories*

This is the sweetest story I have read on fictionpress thus far in my career as a reader! Your characterizations are brilliant, and I love how realistic your dialogue is in this story. Its short and sweet, and the ending is simply adorable.

Jesus. You're one helluva writer. Now I feel like I've gotta read everything you've done.
Seriously though, you have a great, straightforward style and a knack for interesting plots. I'm loving what I'm reading. )

Thanks for this amazing piece of literature. This is the best fictional story about the mafia that I have ever read.

Beautiful. I love how Little Nicky didn't turn out to be a stereotype emo kid with his fashion sense. I love their dads too! From the way they understood their sons and the complications of being in the business mixed with gay children.

love the dialogue in this! It's so natural. I wish this was longer, this definitely feels like it could be an entire verse.
