this is really...deep i guess is an alright way to describe it. it's the best representation of blaine's dad i've found on this site. he's not the homophobe he's usually made out to be.
i liked that you made his biggest problem his inability to speak his emotions, i think that's a problem a lot of people have, and seeing it on this site, and not accompanied with the usual high-pitched whining was nice.
his acceptance of blaine, that another thing i like. you're right, not every parent can be Burt, but that doesnt mean they're all terrible (as all the homophobe stories make it out to be). blaine's dad felt like a real person, and that's kind of an amazing feat.
really, really good

Wow. Incredible. You wove an amazing story full of depth and heart and meaning and it took my breath away. I love the way you see them through the eyes of someone who may never truly understand, and yet does all the same. I am awed. Please be very proud of this. It is absolutely phenomenal.

Wow. This was such a beautiful piece. You really hit home with this one. I think this is a common problem with fathers in America. Most just don't know how to voice how they feel and seem distant, but deep inside they just want to be affectionate. You did a great job with this fic and I loved it. Your pieces are always so poignant. Just. Wow. Can't find words to tell you how awesome the fic is.

This story was truly amazing - it had me completely gripped from start to end, yet still I had to take breaks in between reading because it was just a little too much to handle all in one sitting.
The tense you chose was really impressive and really, really effective, and the story itself was breathtakingly brilliant. Well done.

It took me an hour to read this, and then I was distracted all through Biology thinking about it. I cried at least four times and I just wanted to tell you, this was beautiful.
My sister is a lesbian, and when she told my parents when she was eighteen, my mom flew off the handle. Told her she was ruining her life, threatened to kick her out. She calmed down after about an hour and they've long since forgiven each other, but mom still says that when my sister "chose" to be gay, she was "closing doors for herself". I think this story helps me see a little bit into my mother's experience.
What's so incredibly touching about this story is that it's written entirely in the second person, which I commend you for because that is frakin' hard to do. You made the reader the main character, and even though I'm an eighteen-year-old girl, I still connected instinctively with this story of a father who never really became a man. He loves his son so much that he can't even bring himself to tell him that. He wishes his son were straight because then neither of them would have to live in fear, but he can't tell his son that because he loves him too much to be able to talk to him.
Every moment in this story is palpable, and you hit all the key notes that yanked on my heartstrings. Well done. Very well done.

This fic is just amazing! It was hard to keep the tears at bay. Every little detail served to add more depth to the scenes, and kudos to you for managing to so well. This is simply a rarity; it's hard to find successful fics with this kind of POV. Keep up the good work!

Well FINALLY...Blaine's dad was being an ass. Anyway, this was gorgeous. Especially the POV. Yay for 2nd person!

| It's Light Not Jogan chapter 1 . 4/19/2011
that is so sweet, I'm melting! that thing happens really often, when I'm melting about a story. this is the second one, the first is 'Daddies' of Girlfromthewest. I really liked 'Daddies' because of AJ, Kurt and Blaine's (future - ?)child.
