Beautiful (I'm beginning to repeat myself but what more is there to say?)
And I loved the crudity of the language because it just reflects the feelings. No filter.
And it's like he's predicting what is going to happen in Distraction (minus the alcohol, but still).
What do you mean I'm not subtle?
Please write these two chapters where he finally takes all of her :P
Okay I'm going to read Casey's POV now.
You're still the best

Ok, yea so far you are so effing brilliant. Because this is legit Casey and Derek with all their masks and shit off. No pretense. Casey trying to be that perfect girl and hating Derek because he knows she isn't. Dude, you rock.

Very well done

I'm trying to find words to describe the complete awesome that is this story. I can't. I've been rendered almost speechless. I can't accurately tell you how good this is, but I tried.

I like the thoughts behind the actions. With no dialogue, that was really good. Seems like Derek really knows Casey down to the core and they are one in the same in this one shot. Cool!

How do you make this so real? The way Derek describes Casey's insecurities... It's very impressive. I'm jealous actually :-) The descriptions, they fit Casey, yet they fit me as well, which is odd because I'm really not that much like Casey, but I think that's part of the reason this fic just spoke to me. I don't know. It is absolutly incredible.

| Sethummer14 chapter 1 . 5/7/2009
this had some really great lines and i could hear Mike's voice in the background which helped maked this totally epic. loved the part about how he'd make her scream his name, how she'd need a reason, how she didnt see thru 6.5 and also it was raw. loved it.

So here are the Trufax: I’ve been TRYING Very Hard to pace myself with your fanfiction. It’s made all the more difficult by how absolutely mind-f*cking amazing you are at what you do, certainly, but I’ve been trying all the same so that when I have had a particularly sh*t-tastic day of studying for Impending Exams, I can breathe easy because HEY, there’s more WLS-LwD fic to read over on that dorka** website we all know and (hate) love, and it’s always lovely and always mind-blowing and always, always brightens my day.
Hence why I have yet to review (or read) this fic yet. It’s not because I don’t like it –far from it. This is, in all ways, f*cking spectacular (the Exams are responsible for the prophesied many, many epithets this review is likely to contain). I just…I have to have something in the reserves for when the prehistoric Aegean starts laughingly poking holes in my tibia. (?) Just wanted to let you know that if there’s LWD fic of yours that I have yet to review, it’s only because I save your stories for when they will have Maximum Impact. …ahem. Um. Anyway. Onto the review…
So this is an interesting exercise, first of all. I don’t think I’ve read anything else in this fandom in first-person perspective from either Casey or Derek, so before I say anything else, way to set the precedent. Again. You glorious, stone-cold fox. (Yeah, who knows where that came from. I’m probably just drunk.) Way to branch out and generally be a great author. I have a very, very hard time trying to penetrate (haha, ‘penetrate.’ man, we really ARE perverted, aren’t we? most excellent) the inner-most levels of thought for either of these (marvelous) nit-wits, and somehow you managed to just cut straight to the core of the issue, again without even seeming to TRY. (One of these days I’m going to harvest your brain. For Science!)
Lovelovelove the opening bit, where Derek’s carefully dissecting Casey’s ‘fears’ –it seems so utterly, point-blank accurate, and perceptive in the conniving, nefarious way only Derek can manage to pull off convincingly.
Also the ‘daddy’ section? Here you go, effortlessly, seamlessly inserting these integral character aspects into the flow of the story without so much as blinking. It’s fascinating to me that you manage to take things so easily from the show and just make them…YOURS. And use them with such resounding impact. Ugh. It’s just not FAIR. (I know I say this a lot. Probably because it’s true…but also probably because I’ve seen ‘Labyrinth’ twice in the past week.)
And the VENT. AKLSDAJFGNAKLFJGKJNBVFMCMCMCM. I think that damn vent means more to this fandom than even the name-ripping (maybe they’re tied). I absolutely adore how you’ve managed to strip away all of Derek’s denial and cut straight to the heart of the matter –that he knows Casey wants him, and that he wants her, too. It’s all very raw and somehow, impossibly, totally believable. I’m pretty sure this can be accredited solely to your ability to write stories that make the rest of us twitch with envy, because I doubt that I could buy this forthrightness from Derek from anyone else. You just…you have his voice down-pat.
‘We’ll be drunk... So you can get this immoral longing out of your system and go back to hating me in peace.’ –This whole section. I. I. Don’t know what to say. It’s just. The entirety of everything that makes this pairing so undeniably compelling. (As a corollary, I’ll mention, by way of my own confession, that the whole ‘taboo’ aspect of Derek-n’-Casey is what hooked me, too. Mike and Ashley have this inextricable, undeniable chemistry, and yes-ma’am, I would Absolutely be shipping them if they were ‘related by blood’ in the show. I’d be all over that like Nazi Zombies on well-meaning cabiner brains moving in on their stolen gold. Because. HOT. We are sick, indeed. Go team!) And what follows…that he’ll be gentle –i.e. the complete opposite of what she expects, because that’s the way he RESPONDS to her, all the time, because that’s what’s going to make her REMEMBER…
I just. Why do I even bother?
And the last LINE. WHY. WHY? Why must you always end PERFECTLY?
I’ve got to stop this before it gets too ridiculously long, but you should know, I’m going to try and favorite this fic six million times, ffnet be DAMNED. Everyone should read this. Seriously, ma’am. I don’t know how you continue to explode this fandom with genius. Think I’ll probably have a shot this weekend and toast to you, and my friends will all just stare at me in blank horror. Thanks for this. Really.

Ahh! I'm such a terrible reviewer! I'm so sorry! I've been bogged down in end-of-the-year, pre-graduation insanity, and I've cut myself off from all things fun like fanfiction and email. But! Everything is done and I can go back to reading your awesome stories! So, onto the review:
Um, definitely love the new style (though I missmissmiss the parentheticals). Angry!Derek is great. He loves Casey and he wants her, but she's so busy being herself that she complicates everything, and all his loving emotions get jumbled up with the anger, and this is what you get-very nicely done.
I'm not sure how I feel about all the endearments (no matter how mad he is when he says them). It's a little not-Derek.
"We’ll be drunk. Because you'll need a reason." Because this is probably the truest line ever written about Casey and how she reacts to Derek. And,
"That girl with every emotion compartmentalized neatly, every word just right and every expression like so." Because it's just perfectly written. The "like so" could have been "just so" and gone with the "just right," but "like so" adds variety and gets in that bossy part of Casey's personality. It's like she's saying "Here's how I show my emotions, and you should do it this way too, like so."

I have a feeling Derek would be an intense murderer.
