  1. Hey Gary, I apparently only comment on the even chapters now I keep holding off on reading a chapter for a week and then reading two back to back , but I knew I needed to leave some comments here this time, so that you were getting feedback, and I know that's important to you as the writer... So am I the only person who thinks that Boone was read way too much into that punch? That sounds kind of crazy to say that now, any dude that punched me for any reason pretty much wouldn't get the time of day from me ever again. But, and yes people need to grasp this perspective, these were different times in a very different culture. That doesn't mean people that were friends went around punching each other in the face, but sometimes people reacted a certain way. It's like @Bft was saying, things have gone unsaid. At least this chapter, Coy has finally brought up how that punch changed things between them, but Boone has never asked why Coy punched him to begin with. Perhaps it's not for the reason Boone thinks it is. But since they've never actually talked about it, Boone has nothing but his assumptions. Also, I totally feel bad for Coy, how else can he feel like anything but a burden to Boone, after all that was said. I feel for both of these guys, and I honestly have no clue what the right answer would be for either of them. Do they really have to walk different paths and basically part ways for what would likely be forever?

    Chapter 4 Lawman

    Sorry Gary, I got behind in my reading last week so I read these last two chapters back-to-back. Absolute loving this story... all I have to say right now is those boys BOTH need to listen to the sheriff and find something better. Together maybe. I felt like the sheriff was seeing something between these to that he also saw in his older friends. Objective third parties often can see things the people too close to the situation can’t.
  3. I’m definitely enjoying it... I’m still not convinced on them parting being necessarily a good thing, Coy obviously doesn’t want Boone to go, but I guess Boone is convinced he does.
  4. Well there’s a lot going unsaid that I really want to be said. Too bad they’re both cowboys, those yahoos never say anything.
  5. My dad watched Westerns all the time when I was growing up, though he seemed to prefer the stuff I assume he watched growing up, mainly John Wayne flicks. He also watched reruns of Bonanza and Gunsmoke all the time. He liked Clint Eastwood too, and the Spaghetti Westerns were the ones that I fell in love with as a teenager. I like anti-heroes. My personal favorite, with fond memories of watching this for the first time with my dad is the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. My favorite John Wayne film was The Cowboys. That was awesome. So Gary, we'll we have some kind of show down to look forward to as some point?
  6. Now Boone may be at his limit, but we all know it’s not always as simple to “know” as he might think. Coy seems to understand some things around him better than Boone. Not sure if it will be relevant later, but I sure have my doubts about who killed who and why.
  7. Thanks @Marty glad somebody read it Also @Renee Stevens I can’t imagine why you were late in posting the review this morning... 👀
  8. I think it was established pretty early on that Nash had a habit of constantly putting the needs of others (specifically at work) over his own. It definitely had an impact on his marriage. Not condoning the cheating but I didn’t see Lee as the “bad guy” till his antics with the divorce. Anyway, I’ve considered Nash focusing on what he personally needs as part of his growth.
  9. Is Penn a little slow? Why else would Nash be that mad about the baby? “It’s not mine, I didn’t tell you about it cause it literally has nothing to do with me.” Boom! Problem solved. Their conversation on the side of the road was completely pointless.
  10. Congrats Wayne! I don’t think I’ve taken the opportunity to read all your stuff just yet, but I remember enjoying Ash and Ember a great deal.
  11. Oh my god, that interaction between Artie and Scotty! I was laughing so hard. What else was Scotty supposed to think? He’s never seen the kid talk! Scotty is seriously the sweetest, I desperately want someone to benefit from Scotty’s giant heart, and Artie would be perfect. I do feel like those two will really click eventually. Just let Scotty tell one of his jokes. Instant soulmates.
  12. I didn’t get to finish this chapter till this morning, and I’ve been trying to figure out what to say. It was way too short, and that ending Anyway, I think all the stuff between Hank & Chase early on was pretty well covered by a lot of comments from last chapter. I’ll agree, Hank wants to get back what he lost with Chase. He doesn’t want Chase to be “the one that got away” so he’s honestly about where Chase was like 10 chapters ago. Too little too late? That club scene was the suckiest suck that ever sucked. What’s with club creepers preying on sweet guys like Chase? They even ruin the casual scene for everyone!

    Chapter 17 Lilah

    I’ve been reading the last few chapters so much later after you’ve posted them that I’m seeing a lot of my thoughts already being expressed by others. This story is so good, and yet often so depressing. I found myself smiling so much last chapter, and yet I had a bit of a sick feeling in my stomach for a lot of this chapter. Hank did throw his mom away, and did throw Chase away. It has actually been to Chase’s benefit, as his friends have been so impressed with his growth, and Hank obviously is too. Just seeing him take charge and talk sense into Hank is something he never would have done before their breakup. It’s quite a mark of his development. And I’ll again reiterate, he’s still at this point too good for Hank. Sure the guy has taken steps to get help, but these ridiculous realities he creates in his mind and his absolute conviction to these realities, despite his cripplingly flawed thinking, is extremely unhealthy. He wasn’t convinced Dawson wasn’t Chase’s boyfriend until the dude moved to the other side of the country. He wasn’t convinced Chase didn't lie about “that” night until Julio told him. He still isn’t entirely convinced that his father didn’t develop liver cirrhosis in two years, which I think would be pretty much impossible. Until Hank can somehow stop being so sure of his fictional convictions, he’s not great boyfriend material for anyone.
  14. Gary, I didn't know what to say at the end of this chapter. The thing is, I'm not sure I exactly liked this turn of events. I'm ever hopeful that Dawson will finally get that good timing that I've been wanting him to have since I met him, I hate the idea that he and Chase will now be separated. So soon after they connected to begin with. Yes of course the way the world works people fade in and out of our lives, It's happened to me a ton, but still I would have liked to see them enjoy a few years of close friendship at least. But Dawson needs to do this, and I get it. I guess this is yet another ending for Chase. That all being said, I can't quite figure out what's next for Chase. I see a lot of acceptance for his ending with Hank in this chapter. I know a lot of people are envisioning them reconciling, and perhaps that is where they will be headed eventually. Will Chase suddenly rethink his decision yet again now that Dawson has runoff chasing his lost love? It would seem to me to be really hard to get back to that after he has come to grips with the end of Chase & Hank. I personally would have a really hard time trusting such a relationship again, considering how easy it was cast aside to begin with. But since I have not a clue where you're going with this from here, perhaps all this speculation is pointless.
