I used to write movie reviews (which, I have since discovered, is a lot less personal and a lot less frightening than this fiction-thing). When I fell ill a few years ago, I had Nuke on YouTube and on daytime TV to console me and make my life better. They truly made a difference; and I've been in love with them ever since. I joined this space to enjoy the stories the very talented writers here have conjured up. Sometimes, if I feel brave enough, I submit a story of my own.

Luke shook his head. "I—I just can't do this. I can't be casual with you. I'm not waiting for just anyone to kiss, I'm waiting for someone who matters."

"And I don't matter?"

Luke twisted his lips. "You matter too much."

Reading beautiful, sweet, and moving stories like this makes me realise (even years after the show has ended) how cheated we were that Noah wasn't really allowed to interact with other characters aside from Luke. This lovely scene would have been perfect. Thankfully, I don't need the show depicting it, to see it in my mind.

Gaaah. I'm reading this in one haul and promised myself I would wait until the last chapter to review. But I can't hold it in any more. This story is perfect! The paragraph where Luke makes a memory for Noah brought tears to my eyes. And all the rest is delightful too.

I have fallen as irrevocably, inevitably and totally in love with this story as Luke and Noah have fallen in love with each other. I'm hurrying to the rest of it, can't wait! (even if I fear there might be a "Roman Holiday" ending in the works. God, please no!)

I don't condone violence, but Mayer sr. totally had that coming.

If I owned a pair of cheerleader pompons I'd be frantically waiving them for Noah right now.

I'm so proud to see him sticking up for himself and being true to himself and his nature. Even if that ended badly for him, he has proven he IS a real man, his father's perverted standards be damned.

You did that. Your writing did that.



Reviewer: European Orchid Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: July 07, 2013 Title: Chapter 18: A Dream

I can't find anything about this story that isn't perfect to me.

The plot, the pacing, the buildup of emotions, the emotions described, the wording, the writing and the ending (not Roman Holliday but a happier version of Casablanca).

This was a magnificent experience. Thank you.

Wow Tanya. I read this whole story in one go and was totally mesmerised by it.

It is incredibly dark, which I loved. It pulled me right in. Not many writers dare to go to such a grim place, and with good reason. But you pull it off.

You describe both the events and the feelings so vividly.

Luke and Noah are slightly askew from the guys I know, but at the same time remained recognisable to me: Luke's emotional generosity, Noah's self-loathing.

And Hunter was a wonderful villain. I wanted to curse at my computer screen as I read about his manipulations.

Amazing.

Wow, this fix was dark to the point of tar pit. But Noah's voice sounded completely genuine. Great job.

TBH I wasn't sure about this fic as I read it. Some of the writing felt a little strained and the narrative mixes past and present tense sometimes.

But then came your last paragraph. I could hear Luke in my head, I could see Noah standing in the door frame, and his response to Luke's question was spot on Noah Mayer. And my issues with this sweet little story disappeared.

Summaey: "Right now, I brushed hair away from your face, careful not to wake you. You sighed contentedly, and I couldn't help the grin that spread across my face. Our life together has been defined by secret moments, countless movie nights and inside jokes, yearly discoveries, and most importantly; stupidity. That's right. I'm quite possibly the biggest idiot I know."

I love stories where the guys are given a proper life together, and this is one of the better ones.

It is eloquently written, full of emotion and full of life. Luke's joie de vivre and the way he drags a reluctant self-doubting along in his wake, enthusiastic enough to make even someone as careful as Noah forget himself: Simply wonderful and very moving.

Revisiting this sweet story, and adding my 10cts this time.

I think Noah fell for Luke the exact moment Luke fell for Noah: when their hand accidentally touched. But Noah has a lifetime of experience not showing his true feelings, so he's better at hiding that moment's impact from Luke and the rest of the world (besides, at that moment, who could he tell?) than Luke is at hiding it.

And I've always loved their banter outside the farm, just before the swim, because you can actually see them falling in love with each other.
