Very interesting concept you have going on here...looking forward to where it goes. (I've got a theory...and if I'm right, you're doing a verrrrry good job with it. If I'm wrong you're probably doing even better. lol)

I'm still loving the story. I really liked the AJ moment where he told Brian to tell Nick he loved him. Very nicely done. (And those darn Carter parents! UGH! lol. Looking forward to the next chapter(s)!

"Call me a sexist jerk but I knew a guy would walk away laughing at what a coward I was."

You know, that line just jumped out at me...that was *exactly* how I felt when I got stuck in therapy for a while. It's weird how even though there's probably little to no chance that they actually would laugh, there's still that crazy unshakable feeling that they would.

It's all in the details, Mare, and as always, you're really good at "keeping it real" when writing stories that otherwise would seem unbelievable. Kudos yet again!

Mmm. Kudos...

Author's Response: YAY! Thanks i'm so glad you think i'm keeping it real Chaos that is a HUGE compliment. I could see Brian thinking that way about a guy psychologist. I bet it's normal for men to feel like that. The worst fear would be for the therapist to just start laughing at you lol that would be my luck anyway if I went into therapy. THanks again :D

Fantastic. I love your observation of the Impala as a reflection of Dean. So true. And oh the wonderful angst...:smiles: (is it wrong that I smile at pain? eh...). Anyhoo great to see you writing again (I've always loved your fics)--and in my current fandom obsession, no less. I really hope you write more SN! Woot!

Really nice starting chapter. It's got a good hook to pull you in immediately (and yeah, it'd be pretty hard to argue "no tattoos" when you're covered in 'em yourself. lol). I like how you've filled us in on the sad fate of Baylee's mom and dad without getting too drudged down (it's sad, of course, but the tone still stays at least somewhat "up" so it doesn't just make you totally depressed.--and you've done a good job of distancing Baylee from it a bit because when it happened he was too young to really understand...) Anyhoo, great start! (Got a long way to go to catch up...eeps!) 

Author's Response: Ok just made my ENTIRE night!!! I damn near fell off my chair when I saw who the review was from! I am completely over-joyed that you like it so far! *squee* Thank you SO much for deciding to give this a try. I really appreciate all your comments!

I really like the voice you've given Baylee. You can tell that he's basically a good kid, but he's at the age where he *obviously* knows better than his guardian(s) (lol) and is your pretty typical stubborn teenage boy questioning authority...

Author's Response: He, really, is basically a good kid...he's got normal teenage issues and so much more weighing on him. Any kid that age will question authority...especially if it's coming from someone who isn't their real parent. I know this first step daughter can be a complete brat to me! lol. I'm happy that you like the way I've written him. Thanks again, for your reviews! ;-)

What I really like about this chapter are the bits about how being a parent has changed Nick--it's *so* true. And I love the secret regarding Howie ;) It's always the quiet ones you gotta watch out for...

Author's Response: Aw...yay! I am so completely thrilled that you are still enjoying it. I really hope that it is able to keep your interest! Thanks, again, for taking time to read this. Your comments are very nice and greatly appreciated! Oh...and Howie isn't really all that quiet, in this story, lol...he's not in it a whole lot (so far)...but when he is, you know he's there!

Ha! Nice to see a bit of "Old Nick" in this one. *Really* warpped prank, but I could so see it. Also, really nice use of the journal and it does really seem like Brian's "voice". Really well done so far (and I gotta go but I've got ya bookmarked to continue later!) Really enjoying the fic so far!

Author's Response: *snicker* The prank was a bit cruel, but I wouldn't put it past them, to do something like that! Ah yes...then there's the journal! It becomes a major part of the story, so you'll be seeing a lot more of it. I've never written Brian, before, so I'm really glad that it seems like him. *SQUEE* Ash bookmarked me! Thank you for the compliments, on the story...I hope that you will continue to enjoy it!

LOL at the "Tickle Me Elmo Brawl". I haven't been caught in *that one* (fortunately none of mine were into Elmo) but I used to work for a store that sold Beanie Babies in the height of their popularity. Yikes!!! And I like that you're doling out only little bits of the journal at a time to let us slooowly get to see Brian's thought process (rather than going the route of having the whole journal as a chapter or spelling it all out too quickly.)

Author's Response: I was never in one of those "TME" brawls, either, but I did witness one. WOW! The things some people do. lol. I'm really happy that you like the way the journal was presented and all. That whole concept came by complete accident, by the way...and it is one of the things everyone has seemed to enjoy the most. LOL, go figure! Thanks, so much, for the nice reviews, Ash!

I knew I had to have missed a chapter! Okay, now stuff a couple chapters later makes a lot more sense! Can't wait to find out how exactly Kevin became an ass to this extent! Dang! So of course I gotta now mention that you do a really good job of bringing up new questions to keep readers intrigued without just leaving a ton of things unanswered. Nice balance!

Author's Response: OOPS! I hate it, when I accidently skip over a chapter! As for Kevin...I took him WAY out of character here, and I bet you'll be surprised, when you find out why he's such an ass! I really appreciate how you point out what you like about the content AND structure, of the story. I was a bit unsure about the whole thing, when I started and I'm pleased that you find it to be well balanced. As always, thanks for reading and reviewing. *psst...I'm happy to see that you're around a lot, now, too!*

Another great chapter. I so relate to this fic, and this chapter really reiterated to me why. I'm the adoptive father of 3 of my sisters' kids. And I really suspect that she must have gone through what Brian is when deciding which of the kids to leave them with (though sadly I doubt she put quite as much time into it as Brian does, but I'm guessing her thoughts must have been at least somewhat similar...unless I'm giving her too much credit...erm yeah rambling again!). I'm pretty much the "Nick" of our family--the youngest, the well-meaning-but-not-always-completely responsible (though I became so after being entrusted with kids...), loved kids but never wanted to be a dad (until I became wouldn't give it up for the world...) Anyhoo, this chapter and especially Brian's journal really reflect a lot of my own situation and rings pretty true.

Still loving the fic, sorry haven't been able to get caught up, but still working on it!!!

Author's Response: Wow! Thank you, so much, for sharing that, with me. I was aware of your three children, but had no idea the circumstances, in which, they became yours. I can see how you are able to relate, to the story, on a different level than other readers. Children, really, flip your life around...especially when you aren't expecting them...and even more, when they aren't your own. My daughter was unexpected and threw my life, for a loop, but at least I had pregnancy, to get used to the idea.

Anyways, I am so happy that you are still enjoying the story. Oh, and don't be sorry about taking your time, to catch up. I know, and understand, that you're a busy guy. Just the fact that you're reading, and enjoying it, is plenty, enough, for me! *grin* Thank you, for your reviews, Ash...I appreciate them very much!!! ;-)

Okay, so this was the "Story of the Moment" when I headed to the site this morning. I missed the April Fools challenge so I was a bit surprised when I saw the bit of summary (until I opened the fic and read the explanation). So of course I had to read it. And...erm...sorry, but LMFAO. Too funny (in a sad melodramatic way, of course). It was...very sad on one level (the story itself), but very funny because this story was just so not you! And even funnier because I could see someone actually seriously writing this story and it's just so over-the-top angsty.So, that made my morning!
