Reviews for Leader of the Army, AKA F is for Family
tlcroft chapter 1 . 5/20/2016
Funny and sad at the same time, this one reminded me of our family funerals where everyone talks about the deceased with humor and love. The Rossi family is a lot like my own: they may hate in principle the life you are leading but they will always back you no matter what. Three months ago my cousin's oldest had to bury his lover of almost ten years (Drunk driver) and the entire family went to the funeral. Let me tell you, my uncle and cousin were both livid that Daniel's lover's brother would NOT officiate at the funeral or memorial service in spite of being a Reform Methodist pastor-and Michael's twin. My uncle who just retired as an Evangelical Westlyan (Fundamentalist) minister, stood up and conducted both services himself EVEN THOUGH HE HAD NEVER MET MICHAEL! His grandson had loved him deeply and for Uncle Bob it was enough. And when Daniel started laughing through his tears at the memorial service as he told so many funny stories of their lives together, Michael's family nearly collapsed in shock. But for us, it was a normal funeral with the laughter as thick as the tears and so many good memories. Here's to Spencer remembering his mother's service the same way.

This was gorgeous. Bitter sweet, but funny in the way only wakes can be when you loved the person dearly and don't mind laughing at the good thoughts, while crying over the hole they leave in your life. A most excellent fic. OH, and not a pairing I usually read, but I very much enjoyed this. You've swayed me to giving them a go. :)

I'm not a fan of Rossi/Reid, but you've made me see it's possible and could be a good thing. This is a very touching fic and shows what you do for family. I love it!

This was totally awesome. I'm gonna tell all my CM friends to read it.

"I'll make sure he loses the bet," was all Aaron said and then walked briskly into main room.

And I loved that.
