Thank you. Thank you so much for writing this. This is so wonderful. I really love the way you wrote Kenny and his family is.
I love that even though Kevin was mad at Kenny for being bi, he was still there for him when people gave him black eyes because of it. I also love that Karen defended herself by punching her ex because no one should be forced in to having sex. I especially hate when the excuse is because they owe it. No one owes sex.
My favorite lines in this fic are towards the end: "We don't always love each other. When you ain't got shit, sometimes you don't have room to love. That's just the fact of the matter. But we're loyal. We're always gone be there, because only a McCormick will ever understand what it's like to be one of us."
These lines are so perfect. They sum up his family. His family is messed up but they are loyal. They do understand it's not easy being a McCormick. This is so true for Kenny's family.

Holy shit, this was so sad. I mean, I guess I shouldn't have expected anything different.
I say this all the time, but you know how to tug at the heart strings. I just want to hug Kenny, Karen, and their mom. I don't really feel too bad for Kevin and their dad, but the other three deserve so much better.
This was a really nice oneshot. The track went really well with it, too.

The first thing I noticed was Amanda Palmer (my second favorite singer after Emilie Autumn)!
also, this was well written. I mean really well written!

Wow, first of all this deserves far more reviews than it has.
This was a very powerful piece. It really moved me the way you described their lifestyle. Jesus. The bond between the family members, the way they handle problems, good god, I just felt like I was listening to an actual person telling me about their life. Excellent work as always Scarlett!

I loved the way their whole family relationship worked. Usually their abusive and in jail and unrealisticly... I dunno, terrible I guess. You just worked it so they seemed as if they were a REAL family. Sure, one that is fucked up beyond repair, but you showed there's a way to make it so they ARE STILL fucked up, but in a realistic, understandable way. Loved it.

Okay so... I loved this. I like how it wasn't some suddenly happy, everything-is-peachy, Kenny writers about his family sort of thing. In the same breath though, it wasn't heartbreakingly horrible situations. The way you have the family set up is believable for the McCormicks. No one has a perfect family: we all have the flaws but you kept those flaws in rather than make some random perfect white trash family.

How is everything you write so effing gorgeous. You've pretty much captured my own headcanon for Kenny's family. Seriously, it's eerie. It's a fantastic snapshot, which is really difficult to be able to capture well and you've done it splendidly.
When those guys ended up at Hell's Pass a morning later and I asked Kevin if he knew anything about it, he'd just grunted, "You don't fuck with my brother," and passed me his bong.- I just, I can't even with you. This is so how I feel Kevin and Kenny would relate to each other. Like, I really enjoy this way too much.
She shakes her head, "I punched him."
That's my sister.- I want to CRY this is so perfect. You've managed to characterize everyone so beautifully, and what's more, you've managed to put them together in a way that's so believable and it works and I'm just rolling on the floor with simultaneous envy and adoration.
But we'll be fine.
We always are.- FLAWLESS. This is just so perfect and I love it.
Everything is perfect.

Very good story, I feel really bad for Kenny he needs to be happy. I feel bad for Karen too since she's nobody's favorite but they have eachother. I liked that Karen's interests are manga and anime, it fits her.
