  1. Hello Hermetically Sealed. 174 followed stories, wow! Then again, with over 9 yrs here, you have had the time to browse, pick and choose a few. As a fellow, follower of Mark Arbour, that  was where I first encountered you. Many of your other choices have given me a number of stories I would not have found on my own, thanks for that.

    Today is your BD and I want to add my best wishes to you for a very Happy 44th Birthday. Though Tulsa is a bit  far away for me to pop by, I am there in spirit for your celebrations, have a really great day.

     

    Take care

      Thanks!  I'm glad I was able to help you out with reading materials!

    Mark's Revenge

    I think this was the first story I read on The Mustard Jar. Good to see it come over.

    Chapter 9

    That literally describes the average teenager, regardless of generation. I think people forget that teenagers are largely inexperienced and self involved by nature. It doesn't make them bad, it's just part of growing up and learning about the world.

    Dancing with Madonna

    Another good one, and actually didn't end the way I thought it would. Glad to see it here.

    Chapter 5 - Ember

    Anyone else thinking (hoping) Ricky and Justin are going to get together?

    Seven

    I too am thinking Seb. So far it seems like the crimes are based around the aunt's stuff, with Bruno's connection being more circumstantial. I'm betting someone is looking for something either she had, or they think she did.

    Chapter 10

    This is definitely the chapter that starts the ball rolling towards the ending. The only issue I ever had with this chapter was that no one pointed out the seeing Ashley wasn't the problem, it was his skipping classes and lying that was. Kevin wasn't skipping class to see Cameron, and if he had been, then he would have been in trouble too.

    Chapter 4

    One great thing about seeing new people read these stories is seeing all the theories, while knowing what is going to happen.

    Losing Kevin

    Another one of my favorites. Happy to see it here.
  10. The movie is in no way shape or form a flop. That is just ridiculous. I would also point out the Mark Hamill story was widely misrepresented. He has been pointing that out well before the movie's release. Personally, your entire premise reeks of bias.

    Song of the moment

    hmm, well that didn't work.

    Chapter 36

    Gonna have to disagree with many and say that Derek was entirely in the right to try to make sure Will understood the enormity of what he was getting into. Will was the one who immediately made it all about himself, shut down and walked out. Will was the one who refused to listen to anyone, and Liam didn't even try to find out the full story before barging in ranting, then storming out. As commendable as it is of Will to have a plan, do the research and such, Derek is the one who ultimately has to place the interests of the youth over someone else's fragile ego. I sincerely doubt Will is the first enthusiastic individual who genuinely cares, and wants to help. Even people with good and true intentions to help occasionally fail to grasp the enormity of what such an endeavor entails, emotionally as well as financially. My boss runs a LGBT youth center, and we have had plenty of people, good people, who absolutely wanted to help, but were unable to come through, either because of financing problems or personal life problems. Didn't change the fact that the kids still didn't get something they were looking forward to. At this point, we just don't say anything to the youth unless it's already a done deal.

    Sci-fi makes for poor reading!

    I think it worth pointing out that a single study means nothing. It merely shows that one group reached certain conclusions based on their research. It takes many others repeating the experiment, as well as checking the process used to actually verify a study as anything other than a curious anomaly. Now show me dozens of independent, quality controlled studies which bear out the same conclusion and I might take it seriously. But as Cia pointed out, this study alone is seriously flawed, and is not likely to be corroborated in peer review.

    Brittle as a Bird

    This was one of my favorites. Glad to see you bring it over.
