    Chapter 1

    I always had it bad for Johnny Quest ... no, really! I think maybe I still do actually 👦
  2. "I like this story - thank you for sharing" ... (writing a comment is as simple as that)

    Chapter 1

    Another happy ending (sigh) My favorite part is your description of Nick's "hairtrigger smile that just kind of bursts across his face when he sees you" - I smiled instantly at that, know exactly what that is, and love it just as much as Jesse does ...

    Chapter 1

    You do a really great job with these short stories - maybe it's because I have always preferred this form of writing, but I think you have a special affinity for the structure of it - setting the scene, building the conflict, adding some drama, and finally hitting that climax - if you think about it, the story form really mirrors the content - another great read ... so, thanks ☺️
  5. It's been said here before, but I'm going to say it again - Artie and Scotty will have their own "sequel/spin-off" story eventually - they are just too good of characters to play second string - but take your time, finish this story first, and then I'll start harrassing you in earnest for the next!

    A new favorite for me - clever using the opposite perspective, and dynamic enough to reflect the rapid pace of his thoughts - it left me feeling all glowy inside - thanks!

    Another "complete" joy of a tale - I was, at first, a bit worried about where it was going, but where it ended up is just fine with me ... thank you sir.
  8. Cool story dude - but seriously, I really enjoyed the analogy of the garbage can and the leaking roof - so well crafted I wondered if it may have been your starting point for the whole tale - thanks for another "complete" master(magic)piece💥

    The Way Home

    As some previous comments I've posted will attest, I've found this story frustrating, but also compelling and well enough written to get me to its end. But once again I'm going to protest to what I don't "get" - this story, in my opinion, would have ended beautifully at the end of the previous chapter - Rory decides to stay, resolving the story's central conflict, and everyone goes home with a smile on their faces. Why in the world the author chose to conclude this tale with this horrific tragedy, with all the characters touched if not scarred by the events, well... I just found it unnecessary - not that every story has to have a happy ending, but this story was rife with angst and conflict throughout - so it was perfectly poised, in my opinion, to do that final about face and end on a happy note. Instead, it spirals into a dismal and depressing anticlimax that left me, quite frankly, disturbed.
  10. One thing I've yet to figure out with this story - "home" is Nevada - which just happens to be adjacent to Arizona - I mean, you can pretty much drive from Vegas to Phoenix in a day, or from Reno to Flagstaff in about the same - I've done both - so why all the drama? He could go back and forth on weekends for cryin' out loud ...

    Chapter 49

    That bastard Jimmy LaDouche still needs an ass whippin' for throwing a rock through Brando's window ...
  13. Thank you kindly for this new chapter Mr. Cality - looking forward to the next and the next and the next and the ...
