I really like that story and it's one of the few I wasn't disappointed whp ended up with whom at the end somehow ;D And "Last night, you basically fu**ed me to health. Your dick may be a miracle healer." was a killer phrase. I laughed so hard my mom asked me what was wrong ;D

Well that story was really great and adorable and I'm definitely a fan. I kind of wish there had been more closure with him and Nate, though.
Also, "Oh please, you two were more obvious than a Thestral to a tragic war-orphan." made me smile so hard.
Anyway, yeah. Great job. :)

This story was everything! Touching, funny, relaxing, a perfect story to unwind. I literally felt my heart was breaking when I read about Kellan and Nate, and when I read their e-mails, I found myself unexpectedly happy because it was hilarious. And although Kellan didn't end up with Nate (I was cheering for them), I understood why Kellan chose Will at the end. The plot made sense, the dialogue was witty, an overall well written story. I loved all the characters.

This. This was glorious. I love Grace, she was the perfect post-amnesia friend. And oh, poor asshole Nate. Ifelt so bad for him, while laughing at his pain. It was weird. I'm of to read his sequel now, can't wait!

I was nervous... I was sure he would go back to Nate
I got scared because I suddenly realized I loved Will and Kellan going back to Nate would have hurt me more
but that wasn't the case!
this was nice, I loved it, thanks for sharing

Wow, this story was really good. I liked that he ended up with the nice guy who treated him right. Also thta last comment cracked me up so bad...what a perfect title for a story, serously who wouldn't buy that lol.
Oh and this isn't meant to be an anonymous review, but FP just doesn't like me, or maybe it doesn't like anyone! Great story anyway!

Wow, it's been awhile since i've read on fictionpress but I've got to say this was a great read. At first I thought it would be the usual male main character with amnesia falls in love with closeted best friend but dates some other guy to make the closeted best friend jealous until they finally end up together. But no it ended pretty great. I mean there was a part of me that wanted Kellan and Nate together but I realised that Nate just wasn't worth it. I enjoyed it very much! :D

Um, hi. So I kind of adore your writing. Be prepared for textspam, sorry. -embarassed laugh-
I loved how Kellan changes so much in this story. Seriously he goes from following Nate around and agreeing with what he says to doing the complete opposite. I love how it's so obvious how Kellan can both like and not like Grace. She's very dynamic in being this really cool, entertaining person and being just... well annnyoing I guess. She seems like a real person, like someone I could actually meet one day. I also like how Kellan's sort of an emotional wreck when he remembers everything. I hate amnesia fics where the person is all 'I remember! Yay!' That's just not realistic to me, the rush of having all of those memories returning would be a bit terrifying but wonderful and a whole jumble of other emotions.
I thought that Nate, as a character, was a bit of a walking cliche to be honest. I guess it's inevitable with being in the closet and in love with your amnesiac best friend, so I also think you did the best you could given the things you needed to happen and whatnot.
Speaking of Nate, I read A Full Year of Days as soon as I saw it was out. And I adored it even more than Kellan's story. I loved how in the begining Nate was so 'what do I do with these feels?' with Quentin, a bit attracted, a bit jealous and a bit freaked out. To me this is so realistic for a guy who is so clearly in need of help like poor Nate was. I also love how their romance developped, it felt like a male version of a rom-com and like something that could almost happen in real life. It also made me grin so hard I was giddy and act like a total loon. The thing about Quentin getting all of the tips was a nice touch, because this is so something that would happen in real life! Beacause british guys american guys all the time haha.
I should add that I adored Words and their Digestion as well. Tannar is so messed up but all you want to do is hug the poor baby to death. I felt really sorry for Japheth at the end, and for Tannar, it's really obvious that nothing is going to be the same with their friendship which is sad but at the same time I couldn't help but be glad that it happened, for obvious reasons. Also I'm pretty sure Roz is made of adorable, everytime he said or did anything I immediatly thought 'oh he's so sweet', basically.
I think that of the three of your stories, this one was the best for pacing (not that the other one's are bad or anything!) everything happened when it needed to and there was never any moments where I was thinking 'why is this happening, why does this matter?'
Sorry for not submitting three seperate reviews, but I just thought it would be a bit strange to get three reviews from the same person within five minutes of each other. Kind of stalkery, right? I could still review the other two if you want :) Though I think those reviews would be less actual thoughts and more '33333333!'
So in short, you're amazing, I love your writing, thank you for making these stories and I seriously cannot wait for you to post more.

This was fun. I liked Nate more than Kellan though! :)
| shiyo3 chapter 1 . 3/21/2012
This story deserves its own review :).
I really loved it.
I felt so bad for Kellan, Nate, Will, everyone! I just felt bad for everyone! LOL.
But glad everyone got their happy ending. Eventually.

Oh my god. This is beautiful. I kept expecting him to go back to Nate for lovings and leave a heartbroken Will. I can't decide which version I like better. Although Nate was being all douchey about his closet-home, that's where all the sparks and attraction came from (to Kellan). I never really got the feeling that Will was anything more than comfortable and available. Mess, Grace though. I really really liked her. I like really out there people and she fit so well. She seemed like the kind of person he needed. Convenient that they were neighbors, yeah? :] And now, I must read your other story.. Later. It's somewhere close to 2 right now. In the morning, that is. See what you did? Made me stay up reading this piece of .. beautiful .. *cries*
So yes. This is a great one-shot. Is being favorited and such. I didn't really see any problems.. that I know of. Might have subconsciously blocked them out. Though, I did feel like you should have mentioned Kellan telling Nate about him getting his memory back.
Luck writing and living :]

This story is so so awesome, I couldn't put it down. You're a really talented writer. I could totally imagine this being a movie, it seems like the perfect rom-com plot. Grace was my favorite character, she was so cool. And Will and Kellen were awesome. I think the only thing that I was upset about was I felt like Nate didn't get a whole lot of sympathy. Yeah he was a dick sometimes, but he cared about Kellen all the same and I there was nothing wrong with him being scared and unsure about his sexuality. He was so young and he'll have plenty of time to figure it out as he gets older. I guess I felt that if Kellen truly loved Nate he would've been patient and waited for him to accept himself. That being said Will was the better guy and I'm glad they ended up together. I was disappointed that the storyline with Nate wasn't fully resolved but then I read the author's note and I can't wait to read Nate's story!
Anyway, thanks for a great read!
