Hi Riley, nice new chapter mate.
Dads, what can we say? Geoff went like a typical dad off the deep end with out all the facts, sounded just like mine did when I was 14 lol.
But in his defense he was only trying to do the right thing as he remembered his own alkie brother and did not want his son to make the same mistakes and go down the wrong path with drink.
Like I said off the deep end,
Luke is trying to protect his mate, but somewhere along the line he will need to sit down with Ryan and hash tings out then maybe the two of them can sit down with Lucy and TALK, something that kids do not seem or know how to do.
I was similar at that age, knew it all but knew nothing.
Geoff is a normal dad, how many times have you been told "Ask your Mum" when you need anything and at the same time you see your dad floundering trying to understand how mum makes things seem so easy.
Geoff character is one I can relate to lol.
However he is now slowly starting to realise all is not well in Ryans life and I am sure we will not hear the last of things until he finds out what terrible home life Ryan has, in fact Geoff could soon be hero worshiped by Ryan and his sons, but that is a story line for you Riley as its your story.
Ryan is so scared of adult males due to his dick of an old man that although he likes Geoff the way Geoff went at him reminded him of his own dad so only natural he ran, lets hope he does not have an accident or something where ever he has gone to.
Lucy well she is a power house the one who wears the pants, I look forward to her involvement.
I still think the school needs to be taken to task over the lack of control with the hazing and hangs etc which the staff must be aware of but seem to turn a blind eye, how many more are needed before someone is seriously hurt with a hang etc?
Great story Riley, nice to be on new ground............
It's great to read a new revised chapter after so long, thanks very much. Just a comment that it is rife with typos.
Ahhh back to where we left off. Hope the new chapters show up in the "Stories Update" section. I have a feeling many of the original readers still don't know it's back up. BTW great chapter.
i look for your updates every day and very appreciative when there is one is listed.
thinking about ryan and luke and their drinking bout. being teenagers they are growing up and gaining more independence as they age. the drinking resulted in losing that maturity big time. Luke's mother and father took it all from them and they were relegated to little children being put to bed for misbehaving. its going to take a little time before they are trusted again i would suspect. good chapter.
i enjoy seeing the notes from 2 years ago. but where are your readers now? can't you send a email telling your prior readers that your back on gay authors? they are missing a good thing.
thanks for writing,

Thanks for the review Bill!
I think you’re right, no teens like to be pulled up on their behaviour, and now there will be consequences. Probably a good thing, I think. Nothing worse than when parents threaten something, but never ever do it. Kids learn fast that way!
In terms of readers, it’s been a while since I published, so some who were following have moved on…and there’s a great many really good authors that are worth ready on GA. Hopefully, when some new chapters start coming (which they will shortly), a few will come back to check it out.
Anyway, thanks again for the kind review.
I hope this note finds you well. I just came across this story and loved all of it so far. I love all of the characters and who they are and there quirks. I've noticed it has been awhile since your last posting, will you be adding more? I hope so!
thank you for sharing!
I'm delighted you found the story and are enjoying it.
Yes, I'm updating. It's a long story, but I've been republishing chapters that I temporarily unpublished while I worked on them. From this moment, there's just on left of those, and then something brand new will come!
Thanks again for reading and reviewing.
I do love your writing. I was excited to get to this chapter because i belive this is almost iwhere you left off a few years ago. Such vivid detail when you describe Kieran's hang and Luke's realization of how destructive it actually is to the "victim". I love Lucy, even while she is pissed at Luke and Ryan, she can still jump into crisis mode and help Ryan and maybe protect Luke for the time being.
Thanks Peethree. You're right, Lucy is a huge backstop to the story; a typical mum who knows what she wants for her family.
You're also right in noting we're almost at where we left of. Two more chapters to go and then it's onto the new!
great chapter. really hilarious. I'm not sure these boys could drink so much and still walk. a great change of pace.
I'm laughing still. thanks for writing
Hi Bill. Ryan's certainly had a skinful...and you can do all sorts of unexpected things in that condition!
Riley, just a note to let you know that this story is great and i have been waiting two years to read it again. while the reviews are from another time, 2 years ago, and somewhat baffling at times but obviously you are editing and updating as you go and that great. after all its your story. having read the story before i have been waiting for that little scene between Simon,Toby and his mother. ii want to say its really sweet but that's not what it is. its so private that the reader, at least me, felt that hes listening into a conversation from behind a closet door and that he shouldn't be there. very good writing.
i did want to say something about the hanging that seemed to upset some of your readers. obliviously there some bulling going on here but Ryan participated in doing it to others and he should expect that he was obviously going to get it done to him at some time. there boys, and boys do these things. lets hope Ryan can see that he got what he had given and then get back to Luke. then Luke can tell Ryan that he didn't intervene because of his affliction and that he wanted to see Ryan squirt. after all he is a boy that's very interested in what Ryan looks like down there.
great chapter. looking forward to what happens in the future.
Any review for an author and hearing that somebody is enjoying a story is great - but even better when a reviewer asks questions and takes the time to respond in depth. So thank you so much for going the extra paragraph!
Yes, it’s true, I am doing quite a bit of updating of the story. As you know, I took a break for a bit, but then have been working on it for about 18 months now. Without the pressure of readers waiting for the next chapter - and the the rushing that comes with that - I managed to settle back a bit and have (for the most part) now finished the whole story. SO then I went back to the beginning and began tidying things up in preparation for republishing. In that ’tidy’ a lot of things were re-written and, I hope, improved. There is also a lot of new content that fills in the gaps and improves the flow, and more than a few bits take the story in a rather different direction! I would certainly say to any who are re-reading like yourself…you should go back to the beginning if you have time, so as not to miss some key bits.
Like you note, the Hang is an animal that they have a complicated relationship with. Deep down, I think they all know it’s wrong, but if you give, you get, and it’s only when you get that close do you discover how destructive it can be.
But back to Luke and Ryan. The story is far, far from over, so we’ll have to see where it yet leads!
Thanks again for your review.
Nice chapters Ryan is a survivor and shows his trust in Luke telling him how he was and still is abused by his dad, mental abuse is often more painful than physical beatings. But even so Luke can be a bit of a dickhead at times and thinks with his willy rather than the head on his shoulders, but he is young and starting out so some allowances must be made. As for the rest of those who were involved with the hang I would still like to see a bit more payback.
Tequila, Luke and Ryan getting it on in the bedroom ????? Sorry but 'What ?? i reread several chapters as i thought i missed something important and found nothing about Luke and Ryan getting pissed and getting it on. Then i noticed the reviews where 2013, talk about spoilers.
Nicely put - Luke can be a bit of a dickhead. But then, can’t any of us at times!
My bad on the confusion with the chapter reviews. I broke up a chapter as it was getting too long in the rewrite, making two out of one. Seemed a good idea, except I forgot that there would be existing chapter specific reviews that would no longer make sense! Duh!
So, to get back on track, the next chapter is going to be a bit of a bumper!
Thanks for the review!
Ahhh great! Elliot is still around. Adds some suspense to the tale.
And it's wide open as to what might come of that!
Thanks for reading.
Think Ryan did the same as most other kids would have done. However if it was me there would be pay back to those who were the leaders like broken noses and fat lips. Take them one at a time and show them who's boss.
This type of hazing should be banned from schools someone always gets hurt and its humiliating the teaching staff must be aware of what goes on and should be taken to task over this as well.
Payback is due.
Payback might help, but first Ryan has to find his way out of the desperate hole he’s fallen in. Even then, it’s hard to know if their friendships will survive this.
It looks like this version was much harder on Ryan than the last version. It'll be interesting to see where this goes.
After having taken a break from the story a you know, I took the decision to change a few things. I wanted to explore what would happen if Ryan didn’t get “luckily” saved by the bell, because in a real life situation with shrewd scheming teens, they would have all the angles covered. Whatever the reason, they seemed to be confidant they wouldn’t be interrupted, so it made sense to take it to its natural conclusion and then see how that affected the rest of the story.
Thanks for reviewing!
hi riley, (i hope your there)
all these reviews are from 2012?
anyway i read your story, i guess in 2012. it was still going on then. and then you disappeared for awhile. i wanted to reread and then tried all kinds of segannians to try and find where you were. if you were publishing et or the story was on another internet site than ga. finally got 10 chapters that were bedded somewhere on the internet. and i wasn't the only one trying to find you.
anyway, i enjoyed your story in 2012 and am enjoying your return in 2015. i remember the story but i think its somewhat changed but still, a great great read. please keep it coming. i can only get up to chapter 25 (the hang) and it leaves a lot hanging. (pardon me on that). i know there a lot after that chapter.
so the question? are you going to add chapters after 25? do you have a schedule? can you provide a notice when you post a chapter? i think that ga is supposed to do that but they didn't when you reappeared. if you can advise thanks in advance.
great story and thanks for writing.
Yes - I’m here, lol! But you’re right…it’s been a while!
I guess life - not all of it good - took over and I stopped writing and ended up unpublishing stuff while I figured out what I wanted to do. Then, since last summer, I started writing again with a hope to finish off ET and at least feel I’d achieved something!
So, in answer to your question, yes I do hope there will be lots of new chapters coming out, though like any author, you naturally get motivated to bring out more content if you sense people are reading and beginning to review. I realise that I lost a lot of my readership when I disappeared - which is all my fault - so I think we will see how it goes when we get to new chapters.
That said, the first draft of the story is actually finished now, though I tinker a lot, so it will go through lots of revisions to try to get it right!
You are right in noting that the story software won’t register updates of existing chapters in the normal place, however, when new chapters come out, it should. in the meantime, there is a thread in the forum under the stories section and I drop a note there every time I update. I think that if you click the link to follow the story you also get automatic notifications on updates.
Anyway, thanks for reading and for dropping this note.
Just as fun as first time. Hang in.
Thanks my friend
And I'm delighted to say that the story - for the most part - is now finished!
The one ray of hope was when the official at the customs desk looked through his spanking brand new passport and stared at him, intently. Luke glared back defiantly. Go on – throw me out – do us both a favor! But, instead of putting him back on a plane to where he rightly belonged, he’d brought his stamp down in final judgment.
