|Reviews for Not My Son|
| Janie chapter 3 . 1/23/2013
Aw, poor Levi. I so wish things would have worked out between him and Sam. I was really hoping for a scene with sex just to make Howard uncomfortable, lol. Bring on chapter 3! :)

As I thought : I really like howard xD Probably his stubbornness :) I like stubborn people :D And maybe the weird way his mind works xD and how he keeps on believing his son isn't gay xD yep. I like howard probably even more than his son. He's got personality. Even more than his wife xD And you're doing great at building him! Great job on this chapter :

Oh my god, he even went as far as to dig through Levi's trash...oh my god I'm simply liking Howard more and more by the second! I'm honestly waiting him him to snap lol. Keep up the great work! :D

I've always wondered how authors feel about writing characters or about opinions/situations they inherently disagree with! Mostly because I have the hardest time with doing so, and even to a point where it makes writing satirical things hard for me when they're satirizing something that is either a deeply ingrained opinion of mine or something that's just a facet of who I am, so I wholly commend you on writing this and a lot of the things you have written, for that matter! You're definitely never afraid to tackle touchy subject matters! I love your works, and this story just gets better by the chapter! Naomi is just...perfect...just perfectly perfect, and I love her! So good! Until tomorrow! Or maybe later today...haha ;)

Well, I guess Sam, at least, wasn't one of the bad boyfriends. I'm kind of glad to see that Levi isn't going to have to go through hell to convince his dad that things will be okay. That's kind of unrealistic, anyway.
Breaking up over a vacation like this is also kind of weird, but, well, not muh to be done about that when Levi is at college, I suppose.

I love Howard, he is such a douche, and just like every parent the world over trying to live their life through their children and only able to see his own point of view and no one else's.
This is such a real story, and it is different from what you have done in the past. It is almost as if there is one of your stories running and Howard's point of view is the minor character watching your real plot unfold from the side lines and trying to make sense of it. does that even make sense?
I can see Levi's character develop from Howard's point of view but could imagine you writing Levi's story and this being a spin off almost, with the notes that helped you develop Howard's part in Levi's tale.

By the way the review under Guest is from me
| Guest chapter 2 . 1/22/2013
Hey! I'm glad you've written another story. I'm loving it so far and I can't wait till the next chapter. I'm actually super busy with my school work since I'm leaving high school soon so I'm apologizing now that I'll not always be able to read/review more of this story.
Great to hear from you again! Anticipating the next chapter too!

My god, you're such a fantastic author! For something that's kind of hard to read at times with a narrator that you don't really like, this is written so well and in such a way that you can continue reading it easily and that you want to! It kind of reminds me of a discussion that we had in my lit class today (it's gay and lesbian lit, btw) where we talked about if reading something could make you a better person or change your values, and I kept thinking about how some people read things and just internally argue with them the whole time and never change, which I feel like is something I know I am and that many others may be doing whilst reading Howard's opinions. Because we feel like it's the "wrong" opinion (which I mean, let's be honest...haha). I just found that interesting that we had that discussion today, a few hours before I read this! Haha, can't wait to see how you take Howard on his journey towards, hopefully, acceptance!

Niceeee : Haven't read anything of you since summer (back then you somehow managed to get me obsessed with your work) so I'm incredibly happy to see your new work : and really, it announces itself to be awesome! I just love the perspective you're writing from xD Haven't read many (if any) such stories. I'm glad you are taking this kind of story on :D this was I can be sure it will be great :D
Weirdly, though I kind of like the father :-? Of course, not his homophobia, I'm not even sure what I like so much but I kind of do :-? I bet that by the end of it I'll love him :
Not really sure how I feel about the other characters :-? maybe because I've still not seen enough of them :D
so Can't wait for more chapterss!

This is a very interesting perspective, I've never read a story being narrated by a homophobic dad! I think you're doing great job though- I feel a lot of sympathy for Levi even from a distance, so kudos, I look forward to reading the rest.

Okay, I totally love this dude. While his views want me to punch him in the face, I find his personality somewhat humorous. Totally loving this, update soon :)
| quayjahn chapter 2 . 1/22/2013
It's an interesting concept indeed. Something different! You don't really have stories from the not so supportive view of.a parent struggling to accept his son. Looking forward to more!
| S.H. Marr chapter 2 . 1/21/2013
That definitely makes sense. I think you wrote something from a parent's partner's perspective once but this is different.
Because this is so dfferent, I wondeer if Levi is going to end up happy. I'm sure Howard will end up some version of it...maybe if Levi ends up in a stable relationship with kids or something. I think it's kiind of nteresting to explore what might make a parent change his/her mind.

Oh another great chapter. My heart just breaks for Lee though, and I just want to deck his dad, what an asshole. I love that his mom is so understanding and supportive. I hope Lee finds "the one" soon because I felt so bad for him knowing that Jackson cheated on him. Also will you be posting new chapters on certain days or just randomly?
