'Those few minutes were hands down the hottest of my life.' - Love that thought from Derek.
Derek and George's talk was so amusing with George's attitude once he learned the full truth.
Sam is definitely devious.
Thanks for adding Derek's POV to the main story D

I wonder what he told Mark and Ricky.

I remember this part in the other story. Glad to know Derek's real thoughts on that. D

Very amusing thoughts from Derek. he gets to the point and he sidetracks from his tale sometimes all because of his thoughts on Casey...aww.

The college world is pretty great, isn't it? I can't imagine Dasey NOT happening in a world where they can (sorta) forget about their family ties, or where those ties are, at the very least, not so immediately, invariably present.
And! A (very, very) belated happy two-year anniversary! And I feel you on the Dasey Obsession; it's quite catching, isn't it?
I *so* wanted to see the scene between Derek and his dad, and I was SO hoping that you'd work this in. Ahh...dfak;sdjfad
(I had to go back and read The Dance chapter, both to refresh myself on the material and also to relive that absolutely, bat-sh*ttingly HOT experience.)
First of all, yay, George! I imagine *he* would definitely be the one to go apoplectic -initially, anyway. And then he was all understanding and father-tastic-like, and it was shoo shweet! *hugs*
'Haven’t you ever heard the saying, ‘like father, like son,’ and ‘like mother, like daughter’? It makes sense that you two are perfect for each other.' -And THIS. I've actually had this thought slither across my brain once or twice; George and Derek are so alike, after all as are Casey and Nora in a lot of ways -really, Derek and Casey didn't stand a chance. This insight was incredibly gratifying. Your brain is exquisite.
Loved these; thanks for the extra layer of depth and ANGST. It 'twas lovely. _

I want to make Petulant, Hopelessly Infatuated Derek cookies.
He's such a stupid, adorable little dork.
And yay! I'm glad you let us stop off in his mind for a reaction to Casey's jersey and subsequent Long-Distance Kiss. Loved that. _
'I am a horrible fake boyfriend.' -Aww...there's something about Derek drowning in guilt that is too, too wonderful. Desperately Repentant!Derek isn't so bad, either, now I'm thinkin' 'bout it...

"This sick game we’re playing is really bringing me down.
I’m not giving up, of course. There is no way I’m caving and telling her the truth." -this's what I love about Derek and Casey. Even when they *know* their game has gotten out of hand, they HAVE to keep playing it until one of them 'wins' (or they both lose so thoroughly that they're forced to...er...agree to disagree, so to speak -until the Next Battle begins, anyway). Brilliant.
And this 'mess' of a relationship they're in is even MORE messy from Derek's perspective. My Inner-Depravity likes this muy, muy much.
It's great to finally get to see how Derek really feels about Casey, Super Girlfriend, also. It was fun, from Casey's POV, to watch her mentally flailing while she tried to decipher D's goggling looks or blank stares, and now we actually get to see inside his brain to *know* that he's equal parts annoyed and thrilled. YES.
And you should know, just for the record, that I am ecstatic over your treatment of Sammy-boy. What a freakin' guru.

Awesome -it's great to have Derek owning up to his lurve in from the outset, in a hilariously obstinate, Derek sort of way.
Loved this line:
'She “completes” me.
Kill me. Kill me now.' -So Derek.
Also! I really, really enjoyed Brooke's interaction with Derek in this chapter. It's crazy-interesting to get to explore this wholly new dynamic for Derek -keeping up with a hot girl sans Porny Intent (shock-and-horror!), all the while being totally exasperated with himself at his Utterly Inexcusable feelings for his step-sib.
Just...well-handled, ma'am. This scene was fantastic.

*hugs* Oh dear, I missed your TWO YEAR anniversary! :( But really how awesome is THAT? I've only been here some 9/10 months!
COMPLETE! I couldn't believe it, till I saw the promise of sequels and heaved a sigh of relief. But I'm so glad you added the George/Derek conversation because I'd really been wondering about it. I think you can really tell here that he's completely in love with her that he's not DENYING it. We all know Derek (and Casey too) is denial personified, so for him to actually use the word 'love' (and frequently) is the biggest thing ever. The closest he's come to saying it before this, is to Sally ("Beautiful AND smart, knew there was a reason I loved you" -breaks my heart that and not in a good way) and he denied it two seconds later.
I thought the bonding session was excellent and George brought in his quintessential humor ("Casey and Derek sitting on a tree..." LOL. ILY!) and how you actually made Derek SAY it for once. The Dasey relationship runs too much on unspoken words and touches and ambiguous glances so I think it's important that he says it, instead of it just being implied while he starts kissing her or something. You have such a strong hold on relationships and emotion, that's why the fandom loves you so much (AND you research, really, totally idol material you are, miss!)
And the most amazing thing is just how well you captured Derek in first person. Mostly, I'm not one for first person fics because you really, really need to KNOW the characters. In the other literary forms it's implied and you can make it go whichever way you want, but in FP you actually can't deviate too much from the character or leave much ambiguity because the reader will know what the character is thinking. But you're like, y'know awesome, so you manage to just make EVERYTHING work (sheesh, madame, was there some class I missed?)
But really, I'm glad there's going to be more...I'm not ready for you to give up college!Dasey either *wink* (I'll keep you my dirty little secret" - CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE)
