Of course this is great writing, as everyone else says. But I want to add that you sell yourself short by calling it a spinoff. It's really not, it's an integral part of the main story, because we are learning details about the history and the personality of other main characters such as Becker, but also others, and about events we didn't know about, or now see from a different perspective. It's just the story now as seen by Kevin, rather than by Adam, and you could have just as easily divided the main story into sections, depending on whose voice you were using. And that's how I'm reading it; it enriches and deepens the story, as I'm sure subsequent chapters will continue to do. It's harder to do this since you titled the main story "The Best Four Years of Adam Becker", but if you had a more inclusive title, you could put it all together. Just a thought.

First of all, thanks—it’s great to know people are enjoying the story!

 

I actually kept waffling on whether or not to write this story in the first place, because I didn’t want to detract from Becker--Becker's kind of self-involved, and I liked the idea of having a tight universe where everything is filtered through his own sense of self. I had toyed around with doing a Kevin story for a while, but it was actually the response I got from a lot of people on here after I wrote the “Best Four Years” breakup chapter that convinced me to finally take the plunge: I thought Kevin needed a chance to tell his side of the story. But I agree: I think giving another perspective for those pivotal year of their relationship really helps both stories.
