Hi! I started reading this out of curiosity and oh y gosh, it is SO good! The descriptions and emotion are so well done! I've never read a fanfic quite like this, and though I've only read a few of your stories, I think that so far (as one chapter goes) this is my favorite. I'm so jealous haha. I am having a little bit of trouble with imagining them AJ, Brian, and Nick all as little brothers. I know that this is something you really like in AUs. I like the characterization of them as actual brothers, but I'm having a hard time imagining, say, AJ an Nick coming from the same parents looks-wise. Then there's the age thing. I'm working on trying to see very young Nick, Brian, and AJ, but I just imagined adult AJ getting caught smoking in the boys room. All I can say is god bless Mrs. Richardson! Haha

Author's Response:

Hey Emily! Thanks for reading this :O) I completely understand what you're saying about the guys not looking at all alike. I had a hard time actually deciding whether or not to have AJ as part of the family or just Brian's best friend but he needed to be a part of this family. I actually can buy the other three as siblings because in my head, Nick looks like his mom, Kevin looks like his dad and Brian is a mix of the two. As far as age goes, I like to just think of them in the young, just starting out BSB phase. Brian and AJ are in their late teens so that's what I pictured when I wrote this. I think out of all of them, Nick is the only one I had to keep out of character a bit. I started him out older but for the purposes of this story and the sequel I knew i'd be writing, I had to make him younger. LOL about an older AJ getting caught smoking.

Love the family dynamic here!  So, Kevin is 21 years older than his youngest brother?  Do we get to hear the story of how that happened?  So sad with the tie-in to Kevin talking to Nick about how he should never go with a stranger.  This is why I don't think I could ever work in law enforcement.  Working in the medical field is hard enough sometimes.  On the other hand, my best friend's husband is a cop, and I can totally see him having his future children arrested for doing something like smoking at school!



Author's Response:

To be honest, I don't really remember if I touched on the big age difference or not. Maybe in the later chapters when we get more into dad and what happened to him, but I guess it's just kind of left to the reader's imagination how it would happen, you know Nick was probably a 'happy accident' lol. I also wanted to show that Kevin was also very much the closest thing Nick had to a father because in a lot of ways as you'll see, that's the kind of relationship they tend to have. There's no way I would be able to work in law enforcement either. I would end up never letting my kids out of my sight! I can ony imagine some of the things you have seen working in a hospital setting. Thanks, Emily!

  Sad face :( at the little boy and the story of what happened to Kevin's dad.  Young Kevin doesn't seem at all like the Kevin we know.  Though, who knows?  He could have been a terror in high school for all we know.  My best friend's mom was actually one of his high school teachers.  Perhaps I should ask her?  :)  Seriously though, I'm interested to see how what happened to his dad and going through the police academy/ working as an officer/detective changed him. 



Author's Response:

That's interesting! You'll have to ask her! I kind of picture Kevin in high school like he was before he left the group, serious and stern. I think I only wrote him young in this one chapter as a flashback but I just went with stereotypical high school age when you're asked to do something you don't really want to do type behavior. his dad is a major part of this story and the sequel so hopefully the more you learn about them, the more things will fit into place.

I was just thinking, "I hope Kevin doesn't decide to go stay with his family!" Oh, that is such a bad idea :( I am so impressed with the case you've built here. So creepy. I'm a little scared of what was in your head here. Lol. And the pharmacist in me has to point out the typo-- it's St. John's Wort, not St. John's Wart. That would be something else entirely :) . I had to have a good laugh before I could go on reading. Sorry! Chances are I may have been one of the only readers who noticed that.

Author's Response:

Yeah, sometimes I scare myself too! Thanks, it was both fun and a pain to try to come up with all the layers of this case as well as the plot twists coming up. You are the only one who noticed lol thanks!

I'm a little worried for Patty, but isn't this the character you said was your self-insert into the story?

Author's Response:

Yes she is! LOL Just because she's me doesn't me she's safe you know! Although I'm not saying she isn't... :OP

And the plot thickens. Love it! Darn you, Mare. I stayed up until 1 AM reading this. I guess that's the mark of a good story.

Author's Response:

Wow! Yeah when I saw this review said chapter 17 I was like "Damn!"  Glad it kept your attention and once again, thanks for reading! I hope it continues to keep you up late at night reading! LOL

I wondered whether that might have been Lisa, but figured Kevin would have recognized her on the surveillance video?  Also, I really like the idea of Kevin and Howie being childhood best friends.  I don't their friendship has been highlighted much in the media, but I bet they're pretty close,, or at least were at some time, considering the proximity of their ages.



Author's Response:

I have a very hard time keeping any kind of female character alive for a long period of time! LOL  It's something I have been working on but yeah, they just don't seem to survive very long. I think Howie and Kevin have a very special bond since they are so close in age. It seems like they always are the ones who went out clubbing together and hanging out on vacations etc... I remember Howie tweeting that he and Leigh were on a ski vacation with the Richardsons a few years back and I thought that was all kinds of adorable!

Oh, this chapter gave me chills. I anticipated this would happen, but I figured the guy would go after him while Kevin was around. Now to go look at the phone number to see how it spells string bean.

Author's Response:

You should have seen me sitting and staring at my phone trying to pick out a word based on a phone number lol I finally landed on string bean after about ten thousand tries.

I like how you did this chapter going between Kevin at the hospital and the speech of the kidnapped boy's dad.  It gave it another layer that made it feel so much more emotional.  Well done!



Author's Response:

Thanks! I think this was one of my favorite chapters to write as well! Glad you liked it! :O)

Well, now I have a real theory. Off work today, so I may very well get sucked up into reading this and end up seeing if I'm right! To comment on the actual writing just a bit, the grammar police are noticing a few sentence fragments. The content is so good, though, that I don't care!

Author's Response:

Ooh, I love when people have theories! please share what you think it is! lol I love seeing if I am predicatble or if people are completely being misled! enjoy your day off! I plan on staying in my pajamas all day if possible!

Well I was starting to think it might be the dad, but I think it's too early in the story for that. hmmm

Author's Response:

The dad kidnapped Nick you mean?

Reviewer: emily_michele Signed

Wow, what a relief to see that it wasn't Nick! I really didn't think it was, but I was so sucked in by Kevin's memories of Nick as he was walking into the morgue. I could really feel what he was feeling there, maybe because I have a little guy of my own. Ugh...maybe I shouldnt be reading this. Lol

Author's Response:

Aww, yes this was a really disturbing chapter, I mean the whole idea of killing kids is disturbing in general but to think it's a tiny Nick was not fun to write. Sorry!

Well, I'm right so far!  I have a feeling you've thown something in there that I'm not going to see coming, though.



Author's Response:

Aww now I really want to know what you think is going to happen! LOL

Oh, Jesus.  Wow.  Great storytelling here!  Again, I'm a little afraid of what was in your head here...lol



Author's Response:

Aww! I wish I knew wat you were talking about here because the chapter you write this for is missing. It just says 1. LOL

Reviewer: emily_michele Signed

Well, since you're asking, I'll stop reading for now and tell you what I'm thinking :)  I figured out that Kevin Sr. wasn't dead when Kevin found the card.  I suspected Witness Protection Program, of course.  Then, I figured that he was back in town to try and protect Nick, which I was right about, but I honestly kind of hoped that he would have Nick with him, though I'm not surprised that he doesn't.  Now, I suspected Matt's involvement very early on, though I didn't expect him to turn up dead.  So, here's the current theory:  I'm thinking Patty's dad is Scott Wilson and that maybe he is somehow tied to Kevin Sr.'s Witness Protection thing, just to bring things full-circle.  Maybe he moved down the street from Kevin's family on puropse to get some kind of revenge?  Then, knowing what Kevin Jr. does for a living, since he's a lunatic anyway, the baby killer case is his having his demented "fun" in getting Kevin in on the case.  So, now Jackie is in some grave danger since she's going to Patty's house. and of course, she's been lured out of the hospital where the other boys are.  Eek!



Author's Response:

Holy crap, Emily! I can't believe you actually finished this today! lol Well by now you know you were close but a bit off in parts. But close, I'm impressed. Seems like your head can go to the same places as mine! Maybe a nice suspense story should be in your future? Anyway, I'm going t go red the rest of what you have to say and respond. :O)
