    Alo Chapter 30

    Isn't evicting a family with 6 hours notice - who had been living on a property for 20 years kind of cruel? Doesn't the country have notification laws for these sorts of things? I can understand not wanting to lease or trying to recover damages to property, but really, I don't understand the reason for this. It seems heartless.

    I'm sure he would have seen them working with Beecher since he's a neighbor… ;–)

    Yep. Wren is comfortable with that word, it seems. It fits into what he was doing in his old life in San Diego. Though, it remains to be seen if that sort of world-view will work for Kentucky. Those uncles. You gotta wonder what sort of mischief they'll try now, eh?

    Sorry I missed these at posting. I think there is a 'witch' in every neighborhood, in every childhood. Bees have no business in beer, especially emotional ones. I just want to say how strong I've been finding your poetry throughout this month. You and @Valkyrie have been outdoing yourselves, and we are the ones who benefit. Keep stretching and growing, Adi. Your poetry is absolutely wonderful. Cheers... Gary....

    Well, "partner" means something different to different people. Ragan has known the boys as they grew up. Not exactly close, but enough to be fond of them and know that they're nothing like Wren's uncles.

    Wuuuuuuuut.
  10. Ooops. Missed these. 14, 17, and 19 were brilliantly amusing. Your ode to the rooster was spot on, and I saw it as both literal, and a metaphor. Poor peas.... 20 was disturbing, but powerful and vulnerable as well. The things we have to process as children.... Fog... was just great!

    Chapter 12

    I think that Andrew considers them to be part of his family.
  13. More examples to prove you are a consummate poet, a weaver of words with an understanding of the world you live in. You paint beautiful pictures, evoke stirring memories, and open your vast heart and old soul for all to see. What more could I ask for than to be lifted up, amused, cared for, and share this connection to nature you most certainly have. I am your faithful fan, Parker.

    Chapter 12

    Well, technically Freddie and Harley are nothing to Andrew. They're just baggage that came with the new bitch that sperm donor has been playing house with. Umm, technically they are his step brothers. You are basically demanding that Andrew and Richie punish them for something their parents did. Like it or not, they are step brothers now. The two younger boys don't get the nuances of the situation, and punishing them for something they had no say in is wrong. This vitriol towards both Harley and Freddie is fairly unwarranted.

    So Caleb and Wren are fuck buddies, I wonder how long that lasts before they become boyfriends. Lets hope the cameras act as a deterrent for the Uncles, highly unlikely.

    Caleb and Rachel seem to be confirming that he has moved out of Charles & Tracy's house and in with his partner, Wren. ;–) Everyone, with the possible exception of Rachel, understands that to mean more than merely business partners. ;–) But even Ragan, the old neighbor, accepts Caleb as Wren's partner. ;–)

    I agree with everything you said, but this in particular. And he should have told Andrew (gently) that he was looking forward to spending time with his brother, and bringing Harley along would prevent that. But I guess we can't blame Richie for having a soft heart and giving in to Andrew.

    Well your last story included nanny cams, so it wasn't too much of a stretch to think you'd come up with a similar solution again! ;–)

    Chapter 12

    Well, technically Freddie and Harley are nothing to Andrew. They're just baggage that came with the new bitch that sperm donor has been playing house with. If I were Richie, I would have told Andrew that they could go NEXT TIME, or canceled the outing all together. I wouldn't expect Andrew to kno because of his age, but Freddie knows the situation and is grown up enough to kno that tagging along isn't right and should have talked to Harley and declined.

    Chapter 12

    I'm not blaming Andrew (or even Harley) - and neither is Richie. But the rest of them, and especially the adults should know better. But of course, they want to force Richie to spend time with Freddy for their own selfish reasons.

    Leaving Nathan a eunuch? ;–)
  22. Today
  23. I LOVE that movie! Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is another good one, but a little "gimmicky" with the flying.

    Chapter 12

    Harley and Freddie are part of Andrew's family. He naturally wants all of the parts of his family to get along – just like he wants all his friends to be friends with each other. He doesn't understand why Richie resents them. At least he's not insisting that the sperm donor join them, even he understands that's not going to work. ;–)

    Chapter 12

    I couldn't have said it better myself! I 100% agree with you!!
  26. When I first read it, I liked the story. I like all of them set in Myr's SciFi world. It's a new twist, on an old theme.

    Chapter 12

    I think that Freddie lit a spark in Richie that he's not ready to deal with. He's still grieving Wade and isn't ready to move on with Freddie. He's not even ready to admit he feels an attraction to Freddie. So Freddie not only gets to be a stand-in for all of Richie's frustrations with the sperm donor, but also all of Richie's unresolved feelings! ;–) Thinking about Richie's relationship with his brother, Andrew, I think that he'd probably be better off explaining that he likes boys more than girls while Andrew is still prepubescent. I think Andrew would accept that fact easily at this point. Things will be more problematic when Andrew is going through puberty with all the hormonal impulses and identity struggles. Waiting until after puberty is the usual recommendation, but I don't think that's necessarily true. Richie is already Out at school and it's only a matter of time before an older sibling reveals the fact to one of Andrew's classmates. ;–)
