Oh poor Nick! What a sick and twisted man he is, getting a teen to send pictures like that and filling his head with awful things like that. Although I agree that Nick's parents would probably ditch him if he stopped making them money :(
Author's Response: I know! It's all very sad and disturbing.

I am sorry this review is coming late too. I've been sick so haven't been reading a whole lot. I love how you explained the reason Kevin dismissed Nick so quickly in the beginning of the group and his back story. It's great to see that in Fanfic and I think you did a fantastic job.
I want to hit Nicks family because I can see them tossing him too :( sad Nick makes me sad. I can't wait for the next chapter :)
Author's Response: No problem, Tracy. I've had a really busy week myself. Thanks for the compliments! It is sad how we could all see his parents doing that to him. :(

I liked the back story about why Kevin sometimes tends to come across as "harsh" and "uncaring". Linking it back to his dad's battle with cancer and the fact that it was hidden from him makes it totally believable.
I was kind of feeling like Kevin at the end of this chapter. As much as I want Nick to open up and discuss what happened with his uncle, I totally don't want to hear it at the same time. *shudders*
As much as I'm loving this story I'm missing Brian and AJ! Hahaha! I think you should write them in ... just for kicks. :P Seriously, another great update!
Author's Response: Aww I do kind of mention Brian from time to time. He made a flashback appearance in this chapter at least. As far as AJ, he just doesn't fit in this one. I'll make it up to him some other time. lol

FINALLY!! Nick is gonna open up..hopefully. And I guess his parents never read the letters from this pervert! That makes ME angry..at a fictional story!!!
Nice to see these glimpses into Kevin's past..what had him like he is today (in the story I mean..:p). It would cause so many conflicting emotions on being kept in the dark about a loved ones illness. I guess its one of those situations where you wouldn't know how you'd handle it until YOU were put in it. But..I can see myself feeling probably the same way. Anger...LOTS of anger.
Nicely done once again Mare..now, I REALLY can't wait for the next chapter!!!
Author's Response: Thanks! I would be angry and bitter if that information was kept from me too. His parents are the worst! I wish that was fiction! :-(

Mare, I'm still reading! I've been horrible about reviewing 29,000 lashes for me....anyway another fantastic chapter. It makes me want to be like Kevin (anyway good listener and compassionate and thoughtful).
You've done a great job on a fragile subject matter. It will be interesting to see if Nick comes clean with the sick uncle & his family dynamics.
Author's Response: Thanks, Carrie. It's nice to know you're still reading. It's been a challenge to write this subject matter. Kevin and Howie are kind of awesome. Lol
