Luc's Fall Anthology story
What an amazing story! I can always count on Luc to provide something that’ll make me tear up! And this was no exception, though this time I managed to hold off until right at the end, lol.
When it started I thought Jayce and Kyle were boyfriends. In fact I kept thinking that right up to the point where Kyle said,
…-which meant he either wanted to kiss me – badly…or he was serious. Since he was unfortunately straight, I figured he was serious.
Right up until that point I was convinced they were a couple. I then loved to see them interacting! They seemed to have such a great friendship and Jayce sounded really hot! I also really loved the way that Kyle thought Jayce’s parents were cool and wished his were more like that.
Luc also did an excellent job in characterizing the others! I really got a good feel for Ritchie, but not just him, I also felt like I had a really great image of who Mark and Tyler were. Kyle definitely had an awesome set of friends; Mark especially seemed like someone he could come out to.
I was SO surprised by the end! (don’t read on unless you’ve read this story already!)
I kept expecting Jimmy to attack Kyle or at least get mad or something, but instead he was really cool and helped Kyle work stuff out in his head. I was STUNNED to find out that “Davey” was Kyle’s dad! I guess that is a very good sign that Kyle can talk to him about stuff. Plus it looks like maybe things are going to work out with Ritchie too!
The great thing about this story is that it still leaves many questions up to the reader’s imagination. For example why did Jimmy kill himself? What happened between Davey and Jimmy? Why did Davey marry Kyle’s mom? What do you guys think?
Anyway awesome job, Luc!
