Great job! Very well written!

This story is hilarious! Especially your portrayal of what someone on pot is like, and that it is that addictive! It's not cigarets, or crack, and while it can be addictive, it takes a long time. Smoking it a couple times isn't going to do it, and, it's not that bad a drug. There a very good reason that there is such strong support to legalize it.
Your portrayal of someone who is getting into pot is like something from the 30s, or during the great paranoia of the 80s after-school specials. All of which were EXTREMELY inaccurate, and just funny to watch for anyone with any real knowledge or intelligence.

wow, that was awesome. I should have been in bed 2 hours ago and I'll so be a wreck tomorrow but it was totally worth it. It was really intense and I was so hooked that I just could'nt put it away to read it tomorrow. I think it's one of the best oc fics out there and I've read quite a lot of them.
Thank you very much for writing it!

Good story. That was fun, and it didn't go too Oliver, if you were wondering. Thanks for posting.

Hehe. Poor Ryan, this isn't really his fault, but it is quite amusing. Good stuff.
| bexpunkd chapter 30 . 12/18/2005
Brilliant stuff as usual! Write more long stories!

"Seth was the one struggling to kick a drug addiction and suddenly the focus had turned on Ryan. Ryan had a cold. Ryan was hurting, because they had overreacted to his poor judgment."
Finally someone gets a clue!
By the way, don't get confused by my comments. I like your story very much. That's whay I react so strongly towards your characters and your plot. I just love Seth too much and want to keep him shielded from any danger. Even his negligent family.

"What about Seth?" he asked.
"I'm sure Summer will take him home. Come on, let's go."
And now I'm mad at Sandy too. Geez! What does Seth have to do to convey their actual attention? Oh! I get it! He should go and kill himself.

I am pissed at Kirsten: “No wonder he’s so pissed at me,” Seth said. “If it weren’t for me, none of this wouldn’t have happened.”
“Don’t make this about yourself, Seth,” Kirsten warned.
But Ryan making it all about himself was completely right, wasn't it? No wonder Seth went for the drugs.

I loved how you worked through this, and the way in which you wrote the characters responses to the situations.
Characterization was very well done.
I felt as though perhaps more research on the drug-side of things could've helped the story come across better, but it read well enough to be believable.
(I liked the spin with the Jewish background btw...)
A fantastic read with long suitable chapters with a plot that you couldn't put down.
I think you should up your rating to maybe an M or MA rating, (T to be the lowest at least). Having a drug theme will naturally up the rating, so maybe take another look at that.
Loved the fic and your writing style.

You can't get physically addicted to marijuana. Mentally, perhaps, but that's extremely unlikely. Weed is pretty harmless, when it comes down to it.
I still like the fic, of course. Nice writing style and an interesting plot. Even if I don't buy all of your ideas.
