I loved this, especially the last chapter.  But you know I love me a bit of anti-Mikey/Lindz so this is right up my street.

Thanks

Just reading this again.  Lindsay doesn't even know about Justin's money from the Taylor electronics sale or the mistresses condos does she (about $12/13 mil?). Can't wait till she eventually finds out, she might spontaneously combust!

Take care

TWO updates for the price of one, WOW!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I am looking forward to this story drawing to it's conclusion.  But please, if at all possible, don't leave so long between updates.  This my fave WIP of yours now, having overtaken JTTOU.  I'd hate to have to add my vote to you being locked in a room with Bitch & Whine, LOL!

Okay, just want to say, I want the planes in this universe! They all got to NY rather quickly, esp Connor from LA! LOL, keep working that artistic license!!

I have a thought for future chapters, considering Brandon & Lindsay and being in custody.

If Brandon stays in the Pitts on remand (is that the same in the US?), a lot of their previous sex slaves etc are in jail there.  Could they possibly get to Brandon amd mete out their own brand of justice? (HE HE - evil laughter!)

Also, according to TV land etc, in womens prisons, new inmates who have commited child abuse get the shit kicked out of them and apparently get burned/scalded and are left with scars to prove it as a kind of scarlet letter, prison style! Is it possible that whilst The Bitch From Hell is on remand she can be beaten and maimed too?  This will be especially karmic for her as she think she's the bee's knees and that everyone is attracted to her. (more evil laughter!)

Any considerations on the above appreciated.

Thanks

Deb L

(okay I just read that back & think I may need my medication adjusted - NURSE!!!! LOL)



Author's Response:

LOL! That artistic license is a wonderful gift, but in this case there is a bit of fact mixed in with fiction. The elite of the elite often have jets that fly just under the speed of sound. But in this case, it's also a matter of time zones and the like. It's also a matter of miles to the gallon, and smaller jet engines as opposed to a 727 or 747; jets are notoriously faster.  An average trip from NY to the Pitts is about an hour and a half, whereas a standard flight from NY to LAX is about three on a non-stop unless there is a layover. Also private jets also have a much different flight plan, and are given priority clearance to land rather than commercial flights. So it's all a matter of which method they used to get to NY.

 

I think the answer to who the assassin is will surprise you. At this point, there's no telling who is a friend or an enemy to people like Stockwell and Peterson. All I will say is that this person has prepared for every eventuality, and is definitely about ten steps ahead in their agenda.

 

HAPPY READING!

I have really enjoyed this story and love the ending.  I didn't see the identity of the revenge killer coming at all!!

Please, Please don't start another story if you can help it as you still have a number of WIPs still with a long way to go.

I know you say quality over quantity but this did take over three years from beginning to end and was torture waiting for next chapters and was difficult to keep the story straight in one's head for that amount of time.

I love your writing and can't wait to see what unfolds next in your other stories!

This is not really a moan, but it sorta is!: Can we please have an update for this as we haven't since Feb?  You left this with such a cliffhanger/mystery, its discombobulating!

Thanks,

Hugs 'n' stuff,

Author's Response:

Hey Deb,

I know it's frustrating to have this particular storyline left in a cliffhanger. Believe me when I tell you it's doing the same to me. But since I've never been one to just put out a chapter for the sake of having done so, we're all stuck in this waiting game. The good news is that it's at the forefront of my mind, cooking up its own brand of mischief. The bad news is that I need to wait on it just a little bit longer, so that you all as the readers and the story itself, will not be slighted because of a rush job. My motto has always been QUALITY not quantity, and that's especially true when it comes to this particular storyline. Even I remain surprised at how it has weaved itself where it can only lead to a heartstopping climax and ultimately, a satisfiying end. Thanks for your continued patience, and support of all my work!

HAPPY READING and HUGS,

~Nichelle

Date: Jul 27, 2019 Title: Chapter 44: CHAPTER 41: ONE LITTLE SLIP

Hi, just reading back a few chapters. Could you help clear up some confusion.

I noticed that in this chapter Chris Hobbs is confessing to his harassment of Justin etc and how Michael and Lindsay paid for it & that Michael used Justin's money, the money Michael embezzled from Justin's share of Rage.  But wasn't Rage conceived way after Justin was harrassed at high school and bashed? So how could they pay Hobbs with Justin's Rage share when that money didn't even exist then?  Also Brian's burglary was way before that too. And Ethan came on the scene not very long after Rage started, so how did they make that much money from it so fast?  Please note, in this story it details all the problems Justin had with his hand creating Rage so it had to after the bashing.

Please help as my brain is starting to singe around the edges!

Thanks

(confused) Deb L



Author's Response:

A few of things you should remember when reading ADLS:

First thing is that although part of this is set post-Stockwell, I'm adjusting the timelines so they make sense. Part of doing that is providing gap-fillers, suppositions, and rewriting scenarios so that they are completed. I've also brought it into the current time, as opposed to 2002-2003, when it was first done. If you noticed in the beginning, Red Cape Comics was a lot more technologically efficient; they actually had mainstream paraphrenalia (dolls, cups, t-shirts, and the like). Also, there's live streaming, which is how Lindsay got caught in her numerous affairs in the car, and they were able to spy constantly on Brian, which wasn't even thing back then; just a theory. So moving the timeline to the time in which I began writing this, suits the story in this way.

However, in terms of storylines, the one thing I've always noticed about the show in general is that they would produce an idea, and then rarely followed it all the way through to the end of the actual storyline. An prime example of that was the whole bashing arc (which is the basis for SOWK). But it's a blessing in a way, since their neglect- for lack of a better term- is the fanfic world's gain because it's allowed so many stories to be transformed in some way or another.

The second thing is to remember that Craig Taylor is also involved in all of this. Michael and Craig shared a common goal; to get Justin returned to his household, and out of Brian's life entirely. And that's about I can say right now, since it will give away the plot going forward. However, rest assured that it WAS Justin's money used to facillitate the burglary of the loft, and it didn't necessarily have to be from the Rage profits. For example, lest we forget that Michael had access to Deb's house where Justin was living at the time, while Craig still had access to who-knows-what. Keep that in mind.

And the third thing is to just kick back and enjoy the story itself. Don't get too caught up in comparing the show to my work, because then you really will get confused. A small word of advice though: Although ADLS and JT2U are similar in plots, they are taking two different tracks; be careful not to confuse the two of them. They both jump in and out of canon, but they also move timelines, and are full of what-ifs and alternate universe storylines. It's all about being able to do it seamlessly, so that it feels like the storylines should have been there all the time, and are at last complete. Just thought I should put that out there...

HAPPY READING,

~Nichelle

Date: Aug 08, 2019 Title: Chapter 1: PROLOGUE... AT THE END...

Thanks for the explanation of some of my niggles with this story.

I know it would be easy to just go with the flow and enjoy the story but I'm not built like that.  I have always really got deeply into a story and noticed inconsistences within them that really bug me and to some extent, stop me enjoying the story as fully as I could.  I am the same with books, TV and film, and online stories!

I have noticed some timeline probs with many fanfiction stories that are long, multichaptered and written over time.  I understand that this will always be the case as these are not edited by publishers as a whole entity at the end as books are, for example.  As I don't write them I can only try to imagine how difficult this is!

I'm sorry as I do love all your writing and don't want to appear critical and will just try to ignore my brain. However, it still states in this story that Chris was given money that Michael had embezzled from Justin's rage monies and rage was still after the bashing, as this story also has Justin explaining how difficult it was to create Rage with his hand problems after the bashing. And it still niggles me. That's all I'm going to state about that so we'll leave it there. 

This is all really moot as, I much prefer JTTOU and SOWK anyway!

Thanks for listening,

Hugs & x

Deb L

 



Author's Response:

Thanks for commenting. I really do appreciate the feedback. But that said, I'm going to suggest from now on that you don't read this story if it bothers you for two reasons:

The first is that this story provided a vehicle for SOWK and JT2U to even be written in the first place. The writers of QAF had inconsistent timelines all the way through the series, and there were a lot of storylines left feeling incomplete. So unlike some authors, I choose to move the timelines in each of my work that's semi-canon based so that it makes sense to not only me, but the readers. If that's not your cup of tea, then okay. But don't knock them for doing what they feel is correct to do for THEIR story.

The way your mind works is not how theirs spins a story. Please remember and respect that.

Secondly, a less confident author would have found your comments thus far less encouraging, especially in terms of THEIR vision for their work. Nothing in this literary world- fanfic or not- says that you have to keep reading a story that you don't like, agree with, can lose yourself in and ultimately enjoy. Fortunately, it isn't like school where there are homework assignments on boring subjects that you have no interests in, but must be pushed through to move onto a higher grade. I write the way I want to, and if the readers enjoy it, that's all to the good. But to be constantly criticized and 'advised' based on your own preference is not only inappropriate, it's downright hurtful in a lot of ways- or at least it would be to anyone but myself.

Throughout my career as a whole, I've had to develop what is called VERY thick skin. I've learned to take the con-crit nuggets from any work I do, and apply or disregard it accordingly. That isn't the case for most of the people who write on these sites. So whereas this particular comment doesn't bother me personally, the one you left on SLA really did. I didn't respond on that work simply because I needed to formulate a response that wouldn't seem as if I didn't appreciate the rest of the comment, even if that last parting shot rankled.

So here it is in reference to ALL my work, and that of others anywhere. You cannot tell a person when to start a story (be it old or new), what to write, or when to write or not to. As a reader, I enjoy all the new work simply because the fandom won't stagnate and die out. However, anyone who knows me- both as an Administrator and as an Author- also knows that I FIRMLY believe in an author's right to write their story as they see it. It's very easy for the public to criticize what they don't really understand, yet benefit from.

There are many hours, days, weeks, years, tears, tantrums, and other emotions that go into producing this free service for entertainment purposes. It is not to be devalued based on a reader's ideal situation. So saying, if the story itself is bothering you, a simple 'thanks for writing' will suffice, and you don't have to complete the story. But please allow an author room to grow, and move within the storyline as THEY see fit. As for this story itself, the recently posted chapter explains just where the money came from, and as stated, it was still Justin's money. 

I hope that you continue to enjoy my work, all the way across the board. But if not, I will treasure the con-crit you gave me throughout your comments and grow from there.

Best Wishes,

~Nichelle

Hi Nicole, 

Ive decided to read this again properly as I skimmed the first time.

Just a question to clear up my confusion. The family had Thankgiving in Italy, the Turds had thankgiving in the NYC condo.  Then sometime after, they got arrested and the family went to portland and are having thankgiving again? Am i going nuts from enjoying your stories too much? should it be Christmas instead? Have I lost the plot? (more so than usual). Sos but bugging me.

Still enjoying Taxi & Seacruise & still think your best names for them yet are crumpledforeskin and cindernever. Inspired!

Really enjoyed my re-read of this. Hope there is a sequel in the pipeline.  Can I suggest that Michael only gets more bitter and twisted in prison and somehow breaks out, possibly with Stockwell/Luther and tries to really physically hurt them this time, as he has always really wanted to do to Justin? A bit like 'perfect'?

Thanks Hun

You're welcome Deb!

There is indeed a sequel to come and you've read my mind.

Hope to be cracking on with that soon, once TTNY and GOASC are finished.

Thank you Deb! We tried to keep the characters IC, although Brian is OOC in this fic, but hopefully, his story can mainly explain why he acts and feels the way he does. 

And thank you so much for your compliment on our writing, it makes us very happy :D

Thank you for your response to my review.  

What can I say you are amazing! In the face of the totally crap year you have had, you are still writing fanfic.  What incredible strength you have and how lucky for us readers of your works that you do.

We aren't very good with the whole 'cheerleading' thing in the UK but here goes;

Liked this, even for a short fic.  But then I do like your stuff.

I have to ask though, are you ever going to complete 'The Big Picture'? I really would like to know how it ends.

Hopeful Deb



Author's Response:

Thank you, Hopeful Deb. I am truly amazed every day that I have 'fans' or 'followers', as I started writing because I wasn't finding the kind of story I like to read, in this fandom.

I have never stopped working on The Big Picture, since I really want to know how it ends too. 

My real life, though I much prefer my ficlife, became quite difficult about ten months ago and hasn't let up since. Two recent hospital stays and a new diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis for me, along with a blindness inducing optical migraine had me down for the count in so many ways, not the least of which was my ability to write. 

That being said, I am not a quitter. My more recent, shorter, postings, are my attempts to reclaim something the disease had taken from me, the storyteller that lives in me.. The disease was trying to rob me of my craft, and I was not having it, which is how this and other works since February were born. I had many people help with that rebirth, not the least of whom, is my own gruff and grisly, Hubs. Love is too small a word for what I feel for him. He typed my stories when I couldn't, he held me when I couldn't get my brain to communicate with the rest of me properly.

At any rate, The Big  Picture was always being worked on, just at my newer, much slower, and much more tedious pace.

 

Hold on to your horses though, I will begin posting it again when it is completely finished and we are nearly there. When you see the first update, you will know that it is all done, and will update regularly without interruption this time.

 

Thank you, sincerely, for hanging in there with me. You have no idea what it means to me to still, after all this time, have others care about the  stories I weave and the characters I write. It is an amazing feeling and the third, honest reason I do this.

 

Thank you,

Saje

Really good story. Totally enjoyed it! The characters were good, esp more emotionally available Brian and tougher Justin without moving too far from canon.

Although I hope you may consider a sequel? After all we need a bit more vitriol from Michael and Justin's Dad, not to mention Ferdy will need see the launch of his ad campaign in North America? 

Look forward to more,

Deb



Author's Response: Thanks so much. I appreciate your encouragement.

Oh I loved Rhubarb & Custard as a kid! Will the US peeps get the reference though?

Love your writing, especially Love at First Bite.  Although don't like you much at the moment as I've the theme tune going round in my head as the proverbial ear worm!
