So...my iPod decided to submit my last review before I was ready for it to...
Anyway...I have my own stories that are desperate for updates so I can't talk here. BUT if you do ever update, I will be elated. No pressure, of course! We all understand the busyness of life and how sometimes we misplace our muse for these stories.
Thanks for the great story!

I was intrigued by your story as I was sifting through older works to satisfy my Four Brothers fix.
I read the comment that you received. It was snide and lacked any backbone or evidence. I have to admit, I was a tad apprehensive as to the possible MarySue element of this story. I was concerned when it began during the timeframe of the movie that it would simply be a rehashing of the film events, with the OC adding some dialogue and drama here and there and then the OC saving Jack, and the day,
Although Maddie did save Jack, which reads as MarySue, there is plenty of other evidence against it.
Bobby liking Maddie could also be taken as a MarySue red alert, but yet, I don't think so. He does what he does out of confusion, not burning love for Maddie. Also, there isn't some big drawn out, dramatic, macho battle of wits, romance and fists between the brothers over her.
Maddie has flaws. Not a trait of a MarySue. You root for her, you yell at her, etc.
Simply by noting the title of this story, one can deduce that it is going to be about this girl. If readers want brothers-centric fiction, then they should read something else and not bash an author for their choice in plot, OC,etc. Yes, there are a lot of OCs in this, but readers can't expect the brothers to just sit at home with each other forever. In real life, we meet new people, new friends, lovers, etc. We should want the characters that we love so much to be happy (even if it is all fiction). Do we want them to be alone forever?
I liked Maddie's backstory. It was sad, but not so over the top to make it cliche for this fandom.
I also liked the amount of flashbacks. Dropping a character in without any prior history leaves a bad taste in my mouth. The progression of getting to know Maddie was done nicely.
Overall, there might be some MarySue moments - especially if you go in looking for them instead of enjoying the story - but I thoroughly enjoyed this. After 4 years of stagnancy, I don't have my hopes up, but

67 Impala. A driver that loves classic rock. Gee, that sounds soooo familiar but I just can't put my finger on it. _ Dean's got some competition, I'm rootin for Jack. He's taller and cuter than Dean, even though Dean does have a super hot younger brother. Love the story, UPDATE! The wait is killing me!

| Aria DeLoncray chapter 31 . 9/17/2008
Great story! I really don't see how anyone could call Maddie a Marysue. She's definitely not. Can't wait for the next chapter.
