I love you. I love your writing. You're an incredible author.
This was so effing good. But I did find the 7th chapter a bit rushed. But the last chapter and the epilogue more than made up for it.

I wish there were more stories like this-perfectly balanced between drama laced emotional turmoil and fine character development yet short enough that it only takes a couple hours to read yet not too short... LOVE IT... but I feel I will soon run out of your stories. I think I've read almost all of them!

This was... I'm almost speechless at the beauty of it. When I started reading it, It was really difficult...not the writing, but the story, the topic, the pain, the heartache, the sadness that it evoked in me. That any parent could treat their child like that...it's an ugly truth, that you captured so vividly. The balm of the story of course was this slowly blossoming love that Carlton and Bo had for each other, the tenderness, covered under a stoic facade that slowly reveals itself with a kiss and then another and finally their revealing to each other that they loved one another. This story is so very poetic and touching, your characters so lovingly drawn, their interaction, a quiet very personal dance... really it was quite beautiful.

Good story! Yes, I was worried you might have trouble finishing it gracefully, just because you run into that sometimes... but this is really good.
I haven't got any deep thoughts today. That's it. Thanks for writing it.

Dirty librarian, haha xD I gotta say, I'm not much for those more down to earth/hurt comfort stories (I'm more of a dreamer type) but this one was pretty darn good. Keep up the good work!

The atmosphere created by your writing is really fantastic, but I can't help but feel a little jipped. I feel as though a ton of drama and story is missing between Carlton choosing to come to Bo, and Bo thinking about Carlton. I understand that you might just be a "read in-between the lines" styled author, and that's just fine, But if you ever come back to this project again maybe you'd consider expanding on the lines in between?

This is great! Excellent! The perfect continuation of things.
I think your art relies a lot on archetypal situations... what would this story be without the sense of a rift created and then breached? It makes me think of countless mythic stories, like Achilles rejoining the Greek army. I think in all of your best stories you seek out these mythic moments clothed in the dirt and blood of a modern life.
Anyways, it makes me very happy and I am looking forward to the next two bits.

I like the fact that they perceived themselves differently than the other does. It's like that in real life and too often people forget it when writing.
| JHeartbreak chapter 6 . 8/12/2012
This is good! Obviously, but still. I feel like if they had just got together and that was that it would have been a less powerful story, because they have to process so much still. And this chapter I think was the processing... Finding out what matters to them.
If it had ended with them getting together in Carlton's room after his recovery, I can see it now, it would have been like "And the world was big and scary, but maybe, just maybe, they'll make it through." Which would have been, like, okay, I guess we couldn't hope for better. But this way, by processing the trauma of their lives, and what they meant to each other, briefly, once, I feel like the ultimate get-together will be more powerful and more inevitable. Instead of feeling like, it could have gone either way, we can feel that this is the way it was meant to be, and anything else would be an evasion.
Also, it's weird to have things set down in a real place; Nebraska. In my head all your stories take place in Americaville, this vaguely impoverished land that stretches from anywhere to everywhere. Nothing wrong with how it did pan out, but I'm just saying because it was unexpected.
