    Love it

    Chapter 13

    I edited the previous chapter. Off I go to do the same to this one You're gold, my friend.

    Thank you for that! True constructive criticism is as rare as hen's teeth and very precious to any author worth their salt. I will do my best to correct that situation

    Chapter 10

    Oh boy has that come home to me in recent years. Watching someone you love going through that kind of inner pain, especially when they start to self destruct is hard hard hard. The primal instinct is to help, to try to talk them out of it or just DO something, but there is nothing to do but stand back and hope for the best until they come to you

    Chapter 9

    David Bowie was my hero growing up Sadly, I agree that true change often comes through pain, catastrophe or consequence and it certainly does in my stories. One of the reasons, I think, is that people are more likely to speak freely and speak the truth when under extreme stress. All too often we fool ourselves first which leads to fooling others, or at least trying to, whether we know it or not. It's often joked that it wouldn't be a story of mine without a hospital bed and that's probably true because I find that situations like that, with personal tragedy tend to bring out truths and emotions that otherwise would never have come to the surface.

    Chapter 8

    I've said from the start that I wrote Daniel as the me I would love to have been

    Chapter 6

    We all make mistakes. Holding on to illusions about our parents can be one of them, and was in Josh's case. He knew how hateful they could be but he held on to the fact that they were loving to him - even though only on their terms. I don't think what happened will be ultimately damaging for Josh. False idols almost always fall in the end and at least he has support and understanding when dealing with his illusions being shattered. I don't believe Josh is the sort of person who would ultimately harbour bitterness and anger about his parents. Perhaps he might have been but Daniel would never let that happen

    Chapter 5

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review. I'm going through a bit of a crisis of "why bother writing" at the moment so these reviews really are important to me. Daniel is in an impossible situation. He knows that quoting the bible won't make any difference, and unlike with Josh's parents he is under real threat here. He won't give in but he won't rock the boat too much either, at least this early on when he's still feeling things out.

    Epilogue

    I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for taking the time to comment. I needed this today.

    Chapter 28

    Finally figured this out. Don't ask. I've gone back and read from the start. Love this story. It's as wicked and twisted as all the stories I love best

    Chapter 27

    Loved the endings - both of them. A very nice story. A bit rushed at the end but it all wrapped up nicely.

    Chapter 25

    Awesome chapter. Loved it all. Cid and Kellen are perfect for each other.

    Chapter 24

    You told fibs. You said there were only twenty four. Glad there's another one for rounding off.
  14. Nephylim

    Chapter 23

    Going well and only one chapter left so it looks good for things staying that way
  15. Nephylim

    Chapter 22

    Best chapter so far. Camping is so good for deep talks and getting up close and personal. Love the details with the flowers

    Chapter 21

    Kellen's a great guy. He's looking out for his friend. I hope he's looking hard enough.

    Chapter 20

    You know I would have gone with rape but you're kinder than me I second what everyone has said about Kurt. Rape or not he's the worst kind of predator.

    Lilac rabbit? Gotta love it

    Chapter 18

    The Cid whisperer strikes again. LIke it
  20. Nephylim

    Chapter 17

    Yes, this is how it should be. Billy and Frank; Cid and Kellen. Going well. Why do I think it can't last?
  21. Nephylim

    Chapter 16

    Yep, like this. Kellen is a Celt. What more do I need to say. We're awesome.
  22. Nephylim

    Chapter 15

    Yes, definitely, absolutely, for sure. Kellen is exactly what Cid needs. Like has been said, he's the exact opposite of Billy and perfect for Cid. As tough as he tries to be, Cid is a wounded child and needs someone to watch out for him, not someone who cried every time he tries to be honest.
  23. Nephylim

    Chapter 14

    Yep, Frank is definitely the man. I feel for Cid and I want him to be happy but not with Billy, at least not the way things are now.
  24. Nephylim

    Chapter 13

    I continue to think Frank is the best man for Billy. Cid is starting to thaw but he needs therapy and a man who is much stronger than Billy to handle the fallout.
  25. Nephylim

    Chapter 12

    Billy's finally thinking straight, and I think he's dead right to switch his attention from Cid to Frank. Why do I get the feeling it's not going to stay that way? I like Frank. I've liked him from the start, and I think that given the chance Frank and Billy could make something together. Ah well, let's see.
