LOL that was one funny chapter. Willie is a really eloquent guy, isn't he? Vicki and Liz were spot-on and feisty Carolyn was a delight. I liked how you made Willie act in a way that would make him look like a sexual predator to a bystander, but his actual intentions were much more innocent (sort of).
I laughed when Carolyn stuck the grapefruit in his mouth. Off to a wonderful relationship indeed. Willie's thoughts are so delightfully immature here, the reactions of the "up-tights" at Collinwood were hilariously realistic.
Your Roger is perfect. Perfect, I say. His dry wit, his sarcasm, his voice itself- perfectly in-character and entertaining. I didn't expect him to go gay for Willie so fast, but he's drunk here (and un-straight!Roger is always a treat). Willie's pulled a bit of jerk move on him though, but it just shows: the kid's not as dumb as everyone thinks he is.

Oh, my. That last part was unexpected.
I love the environment you're setting up, and seeing characters like Vicki, Carolyn, and Burke from Willie's somewhat less than reliable or respectable point of view.
Anxious to meet the guy with the wolf-headed cane. Great job!

I never saw the pre-Barnabas episodes, so it's fun to get a picture from your story about how Willie used to be.

Great chapter as always. Willie's mind always comes up with the best descriptors (a masked guy with a chainsaw lol) and nice to see that he's finally moving into (shortlived) luxury. Jason was trying to use him as a lackey again, but Willie wants none of that this time. It's an interesting dynamic with Barn. Willie was actually a servant to both of them- Jason was the better liar.
Sucking up to Mrs. Johnson is adorable, as was Willie's "orphan" face. You balanced his emotions expertly- he's not suddenly raging at Jason, but just from his tone and a few words, you let your readers see how truly hurt he felt and that he's still just a kid looking for someone who wants him.
But I have to admit, Willie's a terribly impolite houseguest- you don't give your host a pet name when you barely know the person!
I know this series ends with Willie/*spoiler* but my W/Carolyn senses tingled in this one.

Just read both chapters- a very good start here. lol Willie's already stirring up trouble with the locales and being the annoying bad boy we know and love. How he met Maggie and the mention of "Miss Winters" made me grin. We're officially docked on canon.
Big man Burke and prettyboy Joe, both people Willie pissed off in the space of 5 minutes. And he's just so darn unscrupulous-enjoying dog meat (LOL), insulting Maggie, thinking about hookers, robbing Jason, etc. I love him. And the bitterness between them was still lingering- your Willie's not the type to latch onto the grudge, but it's definitely there. Maybe that's why he's acting so unhinged right now.
On a side note, certain hot pots are darn expensive, and a bunch of rich people really would sit around it with chopsticks (or some waiter would stand by them and serve it). Though I doubt it'd be dog meat.
anyways, it's been a fun, funny read- Willie's bored now (he won't be for long). Great job again!

I can't believe it's taken me this long to read your stories! I'm sad I started with Changes, because the foreshadowing, hints, and such are so awesome! I hope you continue Willis's story!

Wow. Your story telling is extremely good. And that's probably how it happened that Barnabas got Willie to go there.

Oh, geez, what a cliffhanger! You really know how to keep your readers clamoring for more, dontcha? Please tell me you're going to be posting more stories! I can't wait to see how you write Barnabas! Oh, and how you made Roger actually gay? You know, I always thought he was a little too... flamboyant... to be straight in the series. ;) I love how Willie has developed such an accurate gaydar over the years. XD Oh, and thanks, I will have that Little Willie song stuck in my head for hours now! Gah!
