Is the play meant to be a summary or a mirror of Tobias' and the rest of the cast's life story? I mean I like it, I'm just trying to figure how it fits into the story.
I can't believe this story is almost over. I kinda feel sad about it.
| Honunjama chapter 26 . 5/4/2012
Okay, I liked the setting scene, esp. the paragraph before the 'play', *but* I think I need more info on what's going on. It's very surreal, and I like surreal, but I feel I'm missing something?
Is it a history, snapshots? Are they all talking about the same person? Tobias?
Is this chapter meant to leave us questioning?

This confused me. Sheila, Brendan, and the others are part of a TV show?

It's been a while since I reviewed this, I know.
In truth, I have mixed feelings about it all. Which is probably a good thing. I supported both Paul and Tobias when they broke up.
It's interesting to see something into Tobias' home life. I'm not sure how it's going to work out with Paul staying there, but I'm interested to see how it goes.
I'm not actually fussed whether they get back together romantically or not. Personally I never felt excessively for (or against) their romantic relationship, but I do like to think they can be friends and Tobias can have someone there to support him.
Almost at 100! Well done.

I love that Paul is showing his caring side in this chapter. And like I said before I really feel for Tobias - this boy needs help big time. I like that you're describing the dread/worried feelings that Paul is going through like the lead in his stomach and such.
I'm enjoying reading this as usual.

I like that Paul is looking after him- he seems more responsible, not out of character responsible, but good.
I always love reading your author notes, you know
(I take you don't mean 30 chapters left, just 30 total, if the end is in sight, right?)
(Tobias and Paul as the same person would be really freaky...and then he woke up and it was all a dream;P)
| Honunjama chapter 24 . 4/24/2012
Wow. Okay. I like seeing this other side of Tobias, this self loathing that he's been hiding away. I want Paul to take responsibility and take care of him I think.
The scene with Tobias breaking down was well written- and authentic
Looking forward to more
(oooh nearly at 100!)

I can understand that it's due to Tobias being drunk that he's actually talking and showing how he's really feeling, but... its still weird :/. For Tobias to suddenly be talking is surreal. Sorry. It's feels quite ooc to me.
| GreenGrass1 chapter 24 . 4/23/2012
I really feel sorry for Tobias. Seriously. I do hope he will get some help because he sounds like he has a serious issue and he doesn't know how to deal with it.
I was afraid that it would be something like this when you left Paul at the door in the last chapter, that somehow Tobias is trying to drown something miserable inside himself by letting people use him like that. Definitely a tug at my heart string.
Anyway. Good chapter as usual. Looking forward for the next update.

Finally Paul begins to get it. (I wasn't sure about this detail, but that's not the "it" I mean,anyway)
Maybe he'll also get that he shouldn't ahve sex with Tobias for a long time.

I like the creative approach to ch 23, cutting between reflection over the past two weeks and the current bus ride. ... But man, what a cliffhanger! I am literally shaking my fist! I really can't wait for the next chapter.
Paul has a really nice mom and supportive friends. I hope Tobias has the same kind of love to fall back on. People are fragile things... I'm glad Paul is taking responsibility and recognizing his hurtful behavior.
Eagerly awaiting the next installment...
| Honunjama chapter 23 . 4/18/2012
I like the progression, the journey you're taking us on. I was unsympathetic to Paul after what he did, but at the end of this chapter things felt calmer and I want some sort of resolution to his feelings over their break up.
| Honunjama chapter 22 . 4/18/2012
You know, I felt happy when Tobias told Paul to 'fuck off'. I think he deserved that tbh...
| plumblossom chapter 22 . 4/17/2012
Yeah, well, Tobias had to do that, after what Paul put him through. Considering everything.
