Very disappointed that there is no sequel or finished prequel after making all those promises and leaving cliffhangers.
I hated watching Michael say and do what he wanted and never had to apologize on the show, and it used to piss me off big time when Michael acted like an idiot and Ben would smile that indulgent "oh he's such a puppy" smile. He's not a puppy he's a grown-ass man who acts like a child over and over again and doesn't change. And there were 3 huge scenes in this story where this exact thing happened. Ben started to speak intelligently to his husband then would stop. Ticked me off.
Also you have Brian freak out after the car crash saying that he can't stand to see Justin in pain, but after he was mugged in New York Brian doesn't even bother checking out Justin's bruises and scraps, won't even look at him, didn't care if Justin was in pain then. Plus if Justin had said one sentence to Brian all of it would have been cleared up..."I was running away from Ethan when this happened". Jennifer told Justin "I told Brian it was Ethan who called me", later you have Daphne say "maybe he found out about Ethan". The writing doesn't make sense.
And the writer didn't make Lindsay "crazy" enough to cause a divorce and returning Brian's custody of Gus. It felt too rushed. Two conversations and the use of the word "extreme" by too many people. We were told Lindsay was acting extreme but we really weren't shown too many scenes of her being extreme.
And the show showed Brian changing, but after five years you reverted Brian back to "push em away" Brian, you have him going backwards. Brian's change on the show was the greatest story line, it's a shame to re-write him back to the same Brian from the beginning. And after Brian I think Ted is the one friend who changed the most, at the beginning Ted was comedy fodder, nothing more nothing less. But as the years went on he opened his eyes and saw how childish and mean Michael could be and he became a good friend to Brian. A friend who was intelligent enough to understand Brian.
Like I said, was very disappointed by the poor plot points and the story, and cliff-hangers with no resolve. Feel like I wasted my time.

love the prequel and this story and i was just wondering if there is a sequel i looked on your profile and i couldn't see it so i presume you haven't done one or you like to wait until you have got a few chapters and until you share it?

This whole story was really amazing. Brilliant flow. Really in keeping with the feel of the show. Are you going to do a sequel?

I really love this story. Do you know when you are going to start posting chapters to the sequel? "The Only Way is Up"? I am looking forward to reading it. i loved the emotions in this chapter, seeing Brian so vulnerable. it's almost as if that was exactly what he was feeling about Justin's bashing and it was so real. Great job!

"Ben puts up with a lot from Michael." why? didn't understand it in the show.
ted and blake i've always liked. when blake saw him at the ski lodge he wasn't sure. it had been two years.
emmett needs someone. drew was good for him. drew came to him, wanted him. em didn't have to do anything but be himself.
get jenny away from lindsay and if she happens to get worse, gus too. let him go live in a home with stable parents who love him. not a lunatic who may hurt him.
