Ahhh, what a topsy-turvy kind of story! But somehow still very realistic in the portrayal of characters and their emotions. Definitely was not expecting Kellan to have relatively long-term amnesia (by 'long-term,' I mean...longer than a month), was not expecting Kellan to find a new love interest in Will, was not expecting Nathan to feel so strongly about Kellan, was not expecting Will to know Before Kellan, was not expecting so many things. But all of these twists and turns were extremely pleasing! Really. Before Kellan After Kellan Best Kellan. Not that I would ever wish amnesia upon a person, but if it had to happen, it's good that Kellan ended up with a friend like Grace and a boyfriend like Will.

Wow... just wow. Words can not express how I shall treasure the memory of the half hour this took me to read :) No joke, I loved this. At first I thought Grace was a little sketchy and I wanted Nate to win out, but Will came by and everything snapped into place :D
I just loved this completely. Very few words to express how awesome this piece is.

Hmm... where do I start...
Ahem... mostly. I was smitten with this and then I was slightly crushed but then I was again smitten. Is it so wrong that I wanted him to be with Nate? I mean, I've been reading a lot lately with all of the struggles of couples so I was kind of hoping that Will was like, a phase between Kellan and Nate eventually being together and then I started to notice that no... Will was there to stay.
Seriously, I wanted to rebel against Will in favor of Nate!
But then at the end when he got his memory back, I actually started to like Will. Not more than Nate but enough where I was all like "AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW THAT'S So FUCKING CUTE!" And then I felt like I was betraying Nate... and I felt awful. Like I was cheating on him or something.
Above all else, I loved Kellan! Love, love, love him and his personality. Grace was mercurial enough for me to love her too. She was cute.
But Nate is still my favorite because I have a soft spot for those tragic, closeted, confused, characters that just make me want to toy with them, fix them, or screw them up some more.
And I'm still on the fence about Will...
I don't want to cheat on Nate.
Great story hun and now I want you to write me something more or bring back that snow white and the seven dwarfs adaptation. I really liked that.
Or give Nate a story! Love that guy and he was barely in the story... three cheers for minor characters.
Okay... rambling... bye now.

That was wonderful! As bad as it sounds to say it, I'm glad he got amnesia because of the great friend he found in Grace and amazing boyfriend in Will. I'm happy it all worked out in the end. I like the title as is, but your first choice of a title is pretty awesome too :)
