Mikeal?  Peculiar spelling.

Mikeal is an peculiar spelling of the name Michael, true.  I've noticed a trend of parents giving their kids normal names with unusual spellings.  My favorite so far is when I was referring to my new nephew as Jackson, and found out via a text message from my sister that it was spelled Jaxon.   :facepalm:

Chapter Three is up.  Reviews and comments are welcome.  I only got 3 reviews on the last chapter so I'm not sure whether people like this one or not.  :P

re:  Chapter 4

 

"I lub you!"

 

The slurred words of Mikeal to Adam were too cute.  But he noted that Adam did not reply as if that could be a problem.   I think that Adam was less than stunned as he realized Mikeal was high.  In the gay world, way more than in the hetero world it seems that guys are real shy about declaring their love until they are sure it is returned.  So the unguarded words of someone who was more than a bit loopy did not have a real impact.  I'm hoping that Cassie keeps it real and that Adam stays grounded as I think Mikeal needs someone like that.

Chapter 10 is up.  Sorry for the delay.  February was full of things that were unexpected, but hopefully March will the month of "Cassie gets her shit together" and I will not miss another update.  Thanks to all those who are reading and reviewing.

I feel I've been remiss in not contributing to your forum thread, but I'm probably better with reviews anyway. But I just thought I'd pop in here and tell you that this story has grown on me to the point that I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Adam and Mikeal. You manage to make them cute and real at the same time. :P

Mikeal's mother annoys me a lot. Even if he wasn't gay, she should stay out of his dating life. Pushing girls on him is sooo last century and completely unacceptable. I almost wish she would get publicly shamed by Mikeal coming out. Not in a way that would hurt him, but maybe indirectly by saying something nasty and being put in her place by someone who is way above her in social standing. She deserves to be called out for being a bigot and bad mother. :evil:

I look forward to more chapters.

Thank you Timothy M.  I'm glad you are enjoying Geeks.  

 

Mikeal's mother is an interesting character and you'll see plenty of her in the next several chapters.  And while I completely agree about parents staying out of their children's dating life, she does have good intentions with trying to set him up with girls.  I think that the fact that Mikeal might be gay never even crossed her mind.  :P

 

Thanks for commenting!

Chapter 11 is up.  I am so far off schedule, that it is doubtful I will ever get back ON schedule, but I'll do my best.  :P

Chapter 14 is currently up.  It's a short chapter, but the next one should make up for it!  

 

(Mikeal slapping his mother is still up for debate.  Geez, guys)  :P

I am loving this story so far...your writing is superb! The natural progression of Mikael and Adam's love is very real and so believable...there are no false notes anywhere. I totally get these characters and it really works for me. I love how subtle and well you explain their feelings and actions. You obviously understand love and I can't imagine, after reading the Not The Sun trilogy, Unrequited, and now Geeks, that you would ever make a mockery of it. This is what I truly appreciate in a story, so thank you for the quality of your writing and the insight you provide us of your characters. You give us something solid and dependable to hold on to, which allows us to understand how the characters act...we are never left scratching our heads over what takes place in your stories...something which I think is underrated, especially in a lot of gay fiction, where characters seem to love one minute and are over it the next, and where commitment is not to be taken seriously. Sorry for running on...cheers..Gary

Again, I am sorry for the delay in posting.  For those who are wondering, I discovered that I have lost part of the next chapter and it will need to be rewritten.  Also, unfortunately, I will not be able to address that until at least August, once our student interns have left and work returns to the normal busy as hell schedule.  :P  Again, I am so sorry for the delay, but the story has not been forgotten, or abandoned.  

 

Thank you.
