Aww, I'm all melty at Brian being so kind to Hunter. The way their relationship has developed is seriously awesome.

Thanks for the compliment about my handle, btw! It comes from a line in a Flickerstick song that goes "You could be the angel in my head. You could be the devil in my bed."
Hee hee, Brian with Lilah is too adorable. I'm a total cat person but, unfortunately, can't have any because the hubby is allergic.
Good for Alice in pointing out to Deb that Brian isn't an asshole.
I'm so happy you gave Hunter someone awesome. Matt's exactly what he needed.
Mikey seems to have a problem with deductive reasoning. He says he knows Brian nor Ben have ever bottomed, but he also knows they were together at the white party...
Heh, I have a hard time seeing Dr. Dave as dangerous. A pompous idiot, certainly, but not dangerous.

Whoa, just whoa: Michael lets me wordless!!! What an inconsiderate dumb ass!
Date: Apr 06, 2017 11:17 pm Title: Chapter 8
Michael is just a despicable, disgusting excuse for a human being.
Date: Apr 06, 2017 10:48 pm Title: Chapter 7
I love the meet-cute with Hunter and Matt. So adorable!
I can't believe Michael wouldn't think to provide for Hunter! He's legally his father! What is wrong with that man?
Yeah, Michael, racist "jokes" are hilarious. Faal rocks.
I love Brian defending Justin. It'd be even better if he beat Mikey's face in again, LOL.
I cannot believe Michael was about to out Hunter's HIV!! That is just... beyond cruel.

Poor Hunter. Like the kid hasn't been through enough. I seriously don't get what Michael's damage is.
Oh, I hope Brian can put Vance entirely out of business. That man is such a little prick!
I love Zaden. It's so great to see a strong female character - something that was seriously lacking in the original series, except for Daphne, who wasn't around enough. Jen sort of became that later, but the potential of the character was never realized. Mel could've been, but like most male writers, they mistake being strong for being a bitch.
Exactly my thoughts with Mel. She was written like a bitchy jealous shrew to an extreme in the first and second series and don't get me started on the custody case. Ugh.

The boxes won't fit in his car? Geez, how much crap did he bring to Britin in a few weeks? Guess he really was attempting to move in. I think I'd want someone to shoot me if I ever became that delusional. I know Deb always talks about how Brian gave Mikey just enough to keep him on a string, but I honestly never saw that. It's not like Brian ever said, or even hinted, at them being more than friends. I only saw Brian treating him like someone he'd been close to since childhood.
LOL @ Alice! Yeah Mikey, you don't get something for nothing, and you've already bled Brian for more than the average American household earns in 7 years.
Ben and Justin? Seriously, Michael? I think the reason he's so stupid is that he devotes 99% of his brain power to looking for an "in" with Brian.
Date: Apr 06, 2017 1:32 pm Title: Chapter 4
Man, Michael has really devolved back into the jerk he was in season 1 - worse maybe. I can't believe he wouldn't at least notice how sick Ben was! Self-absorbed prick!
I like how Brian, and even Justin to some extent, have become almost parental figures to Hunter. He certainly needs them, especially when Ben is still refusing to take care of himself. For a guy who's obsessed with healthy living he sure ignores his health!
And of course Michael uses this as an excuse to stay at Britin. I'm curious why he doesn't care about Hunter at all anymore? What happened to take him from the guy that ran with Hunter to keep him safe, to barely acknowledging his existence? Is it jealousy over his relationship with Ben, or more likely Brian?
Gus is sure growing up to be an amazing kid. It's an awesome choice to have him and Hunter be so close.
I love Mel telling those two off! God, they're utterly ridiculous! And Brian sending Michael's stuff back to him was awesome!
Okay, time for me to sleep, but I'll be back to reading once my eyelids will stay open!
Sleep well and thanks for staying awake to review.

Sheesh, Michael's really ramping up his dickish behavior. Even the kids are victims now. I'm not sure how Brian held his tongue.
I really like Ted's aria analogy about Brian and Justin!
Go Blake! Really nice to see him both speaking up and stepping up against Michael the dickhead. Glad Ben seems to finally be growing a backbone as well.
Oh and here goes Lindsay and her righteous indignation over the key. Those two are the most spoiled brat adults ever! Lindsay and her damned Madonna complex. No matter what she thinks, Gus isn't the Jesus making her the blessed virgin. LOL.
God, Brian is so amazing with Justin. Why does he have to be both gay and fictitious, dammit! Hee hee.
Date: Apr 06, 2017 11:57 am Title: Chapter 2
Geez, a year for his supposed store improvements and nothing's been done? How did Ben not think that was weird?
I love when people start getting a wake up call as to how much Brian is not an asshole. It always killed me in the show how those who should've known better held onto their delusions.
The way Brian and Justin take care of each other is so sweet. The intensity of their connection from the very first episode is one of the best I've ever seen on screen. You're capturing it really well, along with Brian's snark, which is one of the quintessential parts of Brian Kinney.
LOL @ the statue debacle. Michael's such an idiot.

This is actually my second time reading this series, but the first was on my phone, which makes it tough to leave reviews. Now that I have some free time to read it again on my desktop, I wanted to make sure to leave some comments. I can't wait to dive back in, because I absolutely love your fics! These will always be my go to when I need some good Michael and Lindsay bashing, hee hee. I really appreciate how you do it in a way that is both believably consistent with their characters, and that also doesn't give them the cop out of being insane and needing a mental institution.
I do want to recommend maybe getting someone to help you with grammatical editing. Your writing is fantastic and really sucks in the reader, but the technical side of things can detract a bit from the overall experience.
This first chapter really starts off with a bang! You do a great job of firmly establishing right off the bat where the characters are, both in a plot sense and the state of the relationships with each other. Michael's weaselish nature is already evident! The idea of anyone asking for $300k is mind boggling!
Thank you for leaving a review and I love your name!
I have now got betas...the lovely Muskababes...and they helped from part of TBOTW onwards and LAFB. So hopefully they will catch my umcacks.

What a relief to have Brian packing Michael, kicking him out of Britin: it's more than time!
Poor Hunter: almost all alone to face the event.
Date: Apr 05, 2017 7:31 pm Title: Chapter 3
Whoa!!! What a disaster can Michael create! Everybody was enjoying a nice day and he ruined it! Glad Ben is seeing thru his bullshit as Carl does.
I can't tell the end was worth it because even with so deep pleasure, the pain remains; and will do until the cause of it is removed. I hope Brian will act soon!
Date: Apr 04, 2017 7:52 pm Title: Chapter 2
Carl is such a nice guy! Funny, discreet, loving, tolerent... He also knows how to mute his son in law! Ben is so patient!
Date: Mar 03, 2017 8:11 am Title: Chapter 3
Man, Michael sure tries to get away with everything; won't even apologize to the boys after he ‘assumed' that Jenny was being mistreated when she wasn't. Hell, he couldn't even let her explain. Well, at least Deb owned up to her part in his behavior.
Brian and Ben hiding from Mikey! And then getting caught doing so by Justin! LOL
The fun is officially sucked out of the room. I'm betting that's the only thing Michael is good at sucking.
Yay Blake! I hope he gets to punch Michael in the mouth someday! (Hmmm, I may have to write something with that.)
"Get the fuck out of my house!" Justin is standing with his fists clenched. And now Yay Justin! I hope he gets to punch Michael, too! Maybe he can go all Pink Posse on his ass! J
Poor Gus, Jenny and Hunter! And poor Brian and Justin, too! Michael is such an ass!
Hot, hot, hot sex! YES!!!
Date: Mar 03, 2017 4:20 am Title: Chapter 2
A full-size Captain Astro statue!? $15,000! OMG the manchild is crazy!
I knew he wouldn't refurbish the store!
"What the hell just happened?" I asked Kiki
"That was him not giving a damn. Wait till he doesn't give a fuck just ask Ted what that feels like." LOL! Gotta love Kiki and her take on Brian Kinney!
I can imagine what Mikey's reaction would be to finding out that Brian was playing his own brand of footsie with Justin and that Mikey was now sitting in Justin's, uhm, spot! LOL
*Sigh* I love how Brian and Justin take care of each other.
"Michael what's the problem, can you get to the bare bones of your grievance quickly, I want to make love to your mother...hello? Hello? Michael are you there? Works every time! LOL!!!!! I LOVE CARL!!
Certainly can't blame Ben for leaving the comic shop! Mikey truly is an idiot!
Date: Mar 03, 2017 1:49 am Title: Chapter 1
Finally getting a chance to read this wonderful fic again so I can post my reviews.
So glad that Justin put a stop to Mikey's plan of getting money from Brian and not paying it back. Go, Justin!
Ben rejecting Michael's attempt at sex made me so happy! I never could understand how they got together.
"Prada suede last season!" LOL
I am so glad Mel apologized to Gus. The way Melanie hated Brian in the series always made me wonder how she would treat Gus as he grew older, especially after she had ‘her' daughter. It was obvious that Gus would look more like Brian as he grew (lucky kid!) and that could possibly cause her to react to Gus in the same way she always reacted to Brian. Glad to see she's at least capable of admitting she was wrong.
Lindsay on the other hand was such a spoiled princess. She was supposed to be seen as the peacekeeper but honestly I think she only did that when it was to her benefit.
Love how you are keeping everyone in character.

I absolutely loved this story and I'm really happy that there is a sequel. I can't wait to read it.
Date: Jan 12, 2017 6:28 pm Title: Chapter 16
A 12-year old cheated Michael out of money? That's hilarious. But what's up with the pills?
Date: Jan 12, 2017 4:33 pm Title: Chapter 15
I'm really really glad Justin isn't seriously hurt. How could Michael talk like that to his daughter? And what did David want from Michael?
Date: Jan 11, 2017 10:28 pm Title: Chapter 14
The treehouse sounds amazing.Matts story is soooo cute. Oh young love.
Date: Jan 11, 2017 6:35 pm Title: Chapter 13
Why didn't David recognize Zee? Mysterious.
Date: Jan 11, 2017 5:04 pm Title: Chapter 12
Debbie accidentally hurting Captain Astro is hilarious. What is David's plan with Michael? I have to find out.
Date: Jan 11, 2017 4:12 pm Title: Chapter 11
Thank you for not including a sex scene with Michael in it. I think I would have puked. I hope Michael will finally get what he deserves.
Date: Jan 11, 2017 2:42 pm Title: Chapter 10
That was their perfect first time. I think it's absolutely adorable that Hunter went to Brian for advice.
