I love how you used the Melissa situation to fuel this story. I really do. At least some good has come out of it. Let's hope Nick has enough support that it won't hurt his career in real life, but for the sake of fanfic, I could see something like that causing his downward spiral - it's sure been happening to enough other celebs lately. It is sad, but hot mess Nick does make for a good story LOL. I was able to sympathize with Lauren from the moment you mentioned him drinking and driving. Clearly, he does need to get his shit together if he's going to be a good father to Odin, and I don't blame her for what she did. I'm enjoying this so far and looking forward to more!
Author's Response: Right? I think I needed something to come out of it for me. I hope that everything stays stable. So far it seems it hasn't touched the group or Nick. But for the sake of plot I blew it up and let it be what caused his spiral downward. Hot Mess Nick is fun to write when it's not true LOL. And yes, I definitely was aiming to have people be able to get why Lauren made the choices she made while seeing why he's so angry about it. Thanks ZDR!

Yay, you posted a new story! I love how you started this one with an email. It left a lot to be inferred, but you also made it possible to draw some conclusions about Nick's situation from it. The unanswered questions just make me want to keep reading on. I think I know which story idea this is, and I'm super excited about it!
Author's Response: I did! And yes you know exactly which idea this was! <3

Well, I certainly hope that you continue with this story because I’m already hooked on it! I’m glad that you weren’t too “scared” to write something related to the whole Melissa business. I know that it’s a touchy topic for a lot of people, but it will definitely make for a good plot. To tell you the truth, when the story broke, I was waiting for the negative backlash; for the appearances and the renewed hype in the group to slow down. But, that doesn’t seem to be happening. They were just here in town and every media outlet was hyping them like crazy! There wasn’t one mention of the accusations against Nick. It was like the story never even broke. Anyways, I’m off topic! Amazing start; I’m looking forward to more!
Author's Response: I plan to! Honestly I've had this plot in my head for awhile but the recent stuff was a great way to fuel a Nick who's been broken down. I'm so happy it hasn't hurt Nick (as you can tell what I think from the story of those allegations). Thank you!
