dude there should be MORE!!! (because it was so good!)
i like how ryan's not quite as messed up, but still sends a lot of time in his head, just watching.
and THIS about broke my heart---->"Just 'cause?" Brendon asked, and there was this a small hesitation in his voice, one that Ryan knew well. Mostly it was there when Brendon wasn't sure he was going to get the answer he wanted, but knew he had to ask the question anyhow.
so VERY GOOD yay
Author's Response: Oh, all my broken boys *cuddles them so hard* Hee, I had fun writing this one. Thank you. *hugs*
okay so my review above was a little bit frenetic, I know, but see it was early, and I was half awake, and needing to talk about sorbet and not quite knowing where to start, so monopoly and disney and brendon was the place.
It made total sense to me at the time.
*giggles at self*
Author's Response: You can say whatever you wish to me whenever you wish, you have more than earned that right with your years of AWESOMENESS. And hey, if that was what you needed to talk about, well, then, great.
When Tom met up to hang with them...Ryan watched as Brendon nearly buried him in bags of Twizzlers and Starburst. Ryan thought about translating for Tom, but Ryan hadn't had very many secrets that were his own in his life, and he might have liked Tom, but that didn't mean he was willing to just open Brendon to him, leave the key out where it could be found" is simply brilliant characterization. For the two I'm familiar with, that is.
I'm here escaping, because I woke up and read Sorbet, and my chest was too tight to put it in words. I ADORE reunions, I loved Gerard climbing and Tommy apologizing and the photographs. What I love most, though, with the sort of love/pain ache that I cutlivate as a now-hobbyist masochist, is the lingering uncertainty that hovers, that will hover until they have sex, until waking up together is routine. LOVEly.
also, getting back to this particular story, I don't think anyone writes, who doesn't get paid to do so for a living, the commencement of a threesome quite like you. And in a masculine voice. very cool.
and, oh, the Disney version of Monopoly is what seals it; it's the vehicle for joy a la Brendon. Outstanding.
Author's Response: I have to say that I've never really thought of my voice as masculine, I often feel that I write men as a woman sees them, so that's a unique compliment and I really appreciate it. Thank you so much for all of this, it just makes my heart hum with happy.
