I have to say, prior to reading your stories, I did not fill particular affiliation to Sweets. I never despised him but he wasn't my favourite character.
I've read your bank heist story and the Andrew reappearance story (lol, I know reading out of order).
You portray Lance really well and your OC's are phenomenonal. It's making me see his character on the show very differently now.

I read the sequels first before reading this one. I enjoyed them all! I really hope you finish the last one somehow.

My throat keeps squeezing up and my chest feels tight and I can't tell if I love you or hate you.

This story is breaking my HEART! The angst is so palpably delicious, but I can already feel that the comfort parts are going to be amazing! Thank you so much for this!

This was such an amazing story! I almost read it in one sitting - ended up taking three, but yea it was really compelling and you clearly did a lot of thinking and research on the characters to develop them into really great fleshed out people. I'm so glad that you decided to share this story with us! Sweets is definitely one a character on Bones I'd like to see more of and since canon is so far not that forthcoming with it, it's great that authors like yourself write for that. Will definitely be taking a look at your other stories!

Absolutely fantastic story! My emotions were all over the place, which means you are an accomplished writer. I loved this story so much!

Hi there. I was reading this story a while ago and I just had to stop at some point (well, right here actually) because I don't think it's very healthy for me to go on at the moment. I might come back later on and finish it. As a psychologist you will understand that this was somewhat upsetting for me when I found quite a few parallels here and there. Thankfully I have never been physically abused. But there's a lot more to dwell upon.
However I was planning to come back for a while and leave you that review you deserved for creating this amazing background story. It must have been lots and lots of work and even though I ended up all messed up, I really enjoyed your writing.
Sounds crazy, right? But I believe this was just the right story at the right time for me. It helped me a great deal. So... thank you! :)

This has taken me DAYS to read and has been amazing! Such a wonderful background for poor Sweets, and I love that it fits in with the details in the series.
Can't believe you've managed to write practically a novel for Sweets' history, but you've done it so well, it must have been a mammoth effort - thank you!

Just read the whole thing in 3 days! It was amazing, I loved it! It's the second Bones story I've read, and the first about Sweets. You've inspired me, and I'm going to have a go at his earh childhood soon, when I've finished a few of my House stories. Thanks so much fro this fic, it's been amazing! Xxx

I'll admit, the number of chapters in this story made me wary of it and I kept pushing it down the list of fics I was readomg/planning to read. But when I started reading...my god. This is now headcanon, because seriously everything is so believable and that last part with David...amazing. Almost every time Lance had one of his low moments i was just crying on the inside. Amazing job.

I am blown away by this story. Once I started reading it, I couldn't stop. Thank you so much for giving such a heartfelt and beautiful story about Lance Sweets. I've read many stories where the FF writers do not care for his character, or do not write his character very favorably, so I was thrilled when I found this story. I cried so much while reading this. All the ups and downs and struggles and triumphs, and through it all the limitless amount of love and caring from his parents was just a pure joy to read. Your story was so well written and I going to just say it: This is my favorite FF story, ever! Love it so very much, thank you, thank you for sharing.

This is an amazing story. I read it from beginning to end in one sitting (roughly 2:30 AM to 6 AM). You explored the past of my favourite character in a believable and interesting way as well as creating compelling original characters that help to create and in turn unravel the character of Dr. Sweets. I also appreciated your wise and meaningful use of the details provided in the tv series (because it just drives me crazy that some authors don't feel the need to keep their facts straight when writing a piece as an expansion upon someone else's work). So thank you. This has given me allot more to consider on the topic of Dr. Lance sweets.

Damn. It may have took me over a month to read this on and off doing other things reading sperate fanfics when I get bored, but it was extremely worth it. I enjoyed this story all the way to the end.
It made me laugh.
It made me cry.
And it almost made me forget get that this is all fiction. I loved it.
