Please write a sequel.

Is there a sequel to this? If there isn't, you should consider writing one. This is a marvelous piece of writing that you did a fantastic job writing. I loved it!

So good and family bonding and damn it just makes me either want to go hug my little brother or punch him a bit, probably both. I think you did a brilliant job capturing the difficult family dynamics and tensions as well as wonderfully portraying and extremely wide range of voices and events rather accurately and simultaneously. Just damn charming and I can't wait to read more you've got in this verse I tell ya. Wonderful characters! Plus I adore the Romy, its tasteful but charming and fun!

You get so many massive bonus points in this chapter for having subtly referenced either Firefly or Cowboy Bebop, both excellent shows that classy characters with taste like Rouge and Remy would watch!

Seriously excellent cliffhanger ending and brilliant way to both end a chapter and kick off the Part II. Just thought I'd mention it. Now off to continue reading.

I, literally, just read this entire story in a day. And I definitely liked it. So I'm going to do one of those helpful/critique views instead of just gushing. Some problems that I found were:
1. Sometimes, in at least two chapters/instances that I noticed, you substituted Adam's name for Alex. This was often when Alex was talking about Adam. Sorry I can't give you specific chapter numbers, but I did only do a quick read through.
2. The level of squicky, for lack of a better word, situations and the amount of explanation dedicated to them seem a little off. You mention things such as the catheters, and yet there didn't seem to be much of an effect on the characters. If this is just using POV, or a lack of considered impact on the characters (due to length), I'm not sure. It just seemed like the disturbing images were being treated as more common place.
3. The flashbacks, while definitely important didn't seem to be long enough. I figured that you wanted to give a glimpse into the life of the Summers' brothers, but there was something missing that directly tied them into the story (apart from Remy's allergy). This might have been my quick reading, but the issues that each flashback dealt with didn't seem to be fully implimented to warrant their current place of import in the story.
I liked your voice. It's nice and simplistic, and certain parts had me literally laughing out loud. You gave good life to the characters.

Alright, I read this a few months ago and was just rereading some of my favorite parts when I realized I never left you a review so I figured that I should fix that. I thought this was for the most part a great story. I'll be honest I really hate Scott, but the way you write him...well it made me hate him less anyway. I love the banter between the brothers. You may be the funniest author on this site. "Jesus wept" is one of my favorite things to say and I was excited that you used it. I think you did a great job with Remy. True, he was missing his accent but after awhile I forgot to notice it. He was a cocky asshole and I love that about him. The Rogue, Remy relationship worked for me. I know that some people were a little creeped out by the age difference but I think it just made it more interesting. The love scene between the two was very well written, minus a little cheesiness from Remy. I wish I could remember all that I loved about this story, but hey if I'm still coming back to it months later you had to do something right:) Keep it up smartass (I say that with a lot of love, believe me)

Ah! What can I say that hasn't been written already for this wonderful story gem? I'm sorry I didn't write other reviews but if it helps, I was glued to my screen all day yesterday reading your story. I was skeptical at first, not sure if this was going to be yet another badly done, "oh, look, the third/forth Summers brother" story...but you really made it work. Your story should be a benchmark to others who introduce Remy as Scott's brother - as well as Adam-X. I like how you made this universe plausible - Chris Summers' indiscretions makes *sense* (especially in this day and age). Forget alien kidnappings and all that - you made this work, and Marvel could take a page from your book (literally).
Things I loved:
*I am a huge Havok fan (kinda snuck up on me) and I really like how you did him justice. I've RP'd him as more of a screw up, but I like your take on him. I'd love to see more of him (PS, I've used the same actor for playing him that you use in your banners. Paul W. really fits, doesn't he?)
* I really loved the brother fights - the verbal *and* the physical. LOL! It made me wish I had a brother to pound. You either have a sibling and you've fought a lot, or you know people who did. Sibling rivalry is not dead.
*I like their troubled backgrounds and the way each found their escape from all their life's issues.
* Most of all, you created a plot that *worked.* It made sense, it engaged me, and your research was top notch. You made me believe, and you didn't skimp on the details - and I really appreciated that. Excellent story, over all.
What I was kind of "meh" about (but it didn't distract from the story!)
*Mixed reviews for Rogue and Remy - you really made it work in this universe, but I side with the squick factor of an older man and a teen girl. It's one reason I shudder when I skip the Rogue and Wolverine stories in Movieverse. But it works, and it's good...it's just not my cuppa.
*Ororo is another favorite character of mine, and I think she was a little flat/cold. And maybe a little underused, but not everyone can write her well. She's a difficult character to write, but I do respect that you have her in snippets. But she seems out of place here, which is kind of unfortunate.
*Probably the biggest headache? Mixing up Adam and Alex's names in your own story. LOL! Sometimes Alex would refer to himself as Adam and I had to double check to see who was speaking. But a quick read through will take care of that. You probably already updated on your main site. Also? Munro vs. Munroe. You caught that later on, but yeah. Ororo's last name is with an "e", just like Marilyn's.
But despite my own misgivings, you've definitely got me craving more of your work. I've added you to my favorites, and I hope you continue. I like your universe, I really do - maybe enough to play in it, with your permission. :)

This was absolutely fantabulous. I am so in love with your writing! Never stop, please. :D
| Romyantic87 chapter 1 . 3/30/2008
I don't even know where to begin. To say that I simply LOVED this story is not enough a description of how much I enjoyed it. I laughed so hard, to the point of tearing, at almost every sentence. Although I lamented Remy's Cajun accent and other such antics, it was a great read.
| kitsuK8 chapter 65 . 12/8/2007
that was a greeaat fic! omg! i absolutly loved the interaction between the brothers! omg! ok, i shall admit im a huge remy fan, and omg, you so did him the best justice!
all i have to say is that this is definitly going down in the best fics category!
| Robin Moto chapter 1 . 10/10/2007
I love this story, it's so in depth and well written, and the interactions are just classic.
I really hope you write a sequel cause after reading this I really want to see the four Summers brothers together, and I know that since its not cannon I doubt I would find it anywhere else. Very few people could have done this story justice, but you definitly have.
So please can there be more? Pretty please? Even if it's just a oneshot?
...if not then I'll just have to read the story again. Which I'm going to do anyway. I just enjoyed it too much not to.
