Well, here I am nearly one year later, sniffly and teary eyed because I just want to hug David so bad... *sniff* Poor baby...
Anyhoo...Again, lovely writing, don't know why I say that in my reviews to you anymore because it's obvious you're awesome. *sniff* But yes..
Also, Happy Birthday early! :] (For this year, not last. ha)

Touching story; poor Dave.
| TheRealMaraJade chapter 1 . 3/13/2011
Awww, this was bittersweet. I could totally see Dave doing that, poor bb. I miss him on my tv!
| Kluddle chapter 1 . 2/20/2011
So heartbraking yet realistic...great job. :)

this was really good. watching the superbowl episode and although karofsky didn't say much when the gleeks were yelling about him being the reason kurt transfered, you could see the shame in his face, though he tried to hide it. you've done a great job, humanizing him for us. for a long time, he was just this stupid bully, now i can feel for him.

This is wonderful.
I can really imagine Dave reacting and thinking just like this.
You have great insight!
Oh, and happy late birthday ;)

It was amazing! as always! ]~
Waiting for the next fic!
| Lau MBC chapter 1 . 2/15/2011
Wow, yeah. I was also thinking Dave's problem was not about his dad, but I hadn't considered have being bullied. You're totally right. that could be it o_o
Can we all go hug him now? ;-;

Another great Kurtofsky from you. I wondered why in the Valentine's Day episode they didn't show Dave in the background watching Kurt and Blaine sing. So much potential for Max to act without saying a word, which is something I think he does so well.

Excuse me, , why exactly wasn't I alerted about this story? *re-author alerts*
Oh, wooow. I feel I should send a longer review than my usual random comments, since this fic really got to me. My stomach actually hurts right now. Oh, Dave. Why can't you just be happy and cover the world in rainbows and sparkles and GLEE! D:
Ahem. But yes, a beautiful little fic here, I really feel for Karofsky, and your writing is gorgeous, as always!
Oh, and happy belated birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day...and a much better one than Dave!

First of all a very happy birthday to you...
Secondly, I really enjoyed this little story as I have everything you've written and I really hope you still have much more on your side.
Lastly in your author's note you mentioned that b/c we've met his dad you didn't think that might be much of the reason Dave was acting the way he was...and by all means you may be right and I agree that there's a lot more to remember I don't think we can completely rule out the parent factor, we have only met the man once. There are some parents and people in general who behave one way in public and vastly different in private...or he could be the way Dave sees his dad, maybe the parent factor could be more in Dave's head...*shrugs...who knows
Again can't wait to read more from you...and again I hope you're having the happiest of birthdays!

Wow. So incredibly well done, I can't think of any way that it could possibly have been better. *shivers* It gave me flashbacks to my own hell-days in middle-school and emerging-not-geek days in high school. Made me want to go hug Dave and tell him that it'll all be okay eventually. I really hope that they do justice to Karofsky on the show. My poor Dave... *hugs*

First of all let me say...
A MASSIVE HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY! I really hope you celebrated in style.
Your writing is a huge inspiration to me and I just wanted to say a big thank you for sharing all your wonderful stories with us. I wish you the best year ever and hope you get everything you want!
Now on the the review...
I do love the fact that Dave is looking through all his 'newest' friends facebook updates. In my head, I really do think that that boy would have considered going to breadstix with Finn if he was invited. The bromance that they had in the superbowl ep was so sweet, I would hate to see that forgotten. Even if it means that they are more civil to each other in general. But I'm still hoping that Finn doesn't give up pestering Dave about apologising to Kurt or is at least an ear for Dave when he eventually comes out.
'The need to be as popular, as normal, as…manly as possible, always trumped anything else. If he didn't focus on that, people might wonder, and that was the last thing Dave wanted anyone doing about him.' - To me, that is Dave in one sentence. his fear that he might get found out. Bless the boy, he's so frightened of what might happen if people found out he was gay that he doesn't allow himself to be happy, especially when it comes to the glee thing.
'If there was anything that could blow his cover completely, it would be getting him and that fricking flamer in a room together. There was something about Hummel that completely eroded his inhibitions and usual discretion.' - I think that canon Dave is just to scared to face Kurt again. i really do hope we get to see their first interaction since Kurt moved to Dalton on screen. It would be a shame to miss that pivotal moment. Though to be fair I thought it was going to happen in the superbowl ep.
'And if they knew that the star of the majority of his wet dreams since junior high was none other than Kurt Hummel.' - I love you for putting that line in. That's all Dave jerks off to in my head.
'But then he'd overheard Rachel and Mercedes talking in the lunch line yesterday, about how happy they were to be seeing Kurt again, and how brilliant his idea for a Lonely Hearts dinner was. And with those words, Dave knew he wasn't going anywhere near Breadstix the next night.' - That line just killed me, because you know that if Dave was invited by Finn, this would be his exact mentality. He CAN'T go anywhere near Kurt.
'And as Dave sat in his room on Valentine's Day, crying and wishing so many things could be different, he couldn't help his surprise in finding that being on top kind of sucked after all.' - Brilliant ending. Because what does being on top really mean if you aren't truly happy?
I feel Dave's loneliness this year! But I'll be watching Bridget Jones with Ben and Jerry to keep me company with two of my other girly friends!
Happy V-Day to you though and have a good one! :D

Happy birthday! (And may I say, what a relief not everyone in here is a teen! I'm 34 and was feeling a bit silly for fanfic-ing!) I loved this story. Usually I go in for dialogue, but Dave's inner POV sounded really authentic to me. And I agree re. Dave's need to be popular and his parents. I got the impression that his dad was a pretty supportive high-achiever, and not homophobic. Hope you have a great day! Love your writing.

Happy Birthday first of all. really liked an angsty valentines day story insted of normal fluffy one. watching the superbowl now and i think ur idea of his peers rejecting is the big thing when the puckheads pick on dave and when finn on shue or any of the glee say something u can see it in his face thats hes hurt and a little scared.
Cant Wait for more
