Cool story. Just so you know, 17 years can enlist in the military.(I did) also, there's now way Eliot would have such a high rank so soon. Sergent would be more likely

LOVE Love love this line:

"Lindsey trails off, barely recognizing this stranger with his face"

Perfect description of twins heading down separate roads.

And the flip side, the everlasting connection:

"Two lives in one. That's the way it's always been. They're not joined at the hip, but...But"

Nice lot of research on the backgrounds, too. I'd forgotten a lot of Lindsey's details over the years.

:)

I've always had a soft spot for Willie - he always seemed so darned sensible!

Nice change of pace; and yay for a little more background on the brothers' relationship.

I know you don't think you write angst/sorrow very well, but you actually do. As earlier reviewer said, the combinations of dark/light and humor/sorrow, are effective and make this story even poignant.

You've also provided quite believable backstories for Lindsey & Eliot becoming the men we see in their respective shows.

Take care & looking forward to the next chapter.

Wow again.

Beautifully done.

And I like very much the slightly humorous touches of phrasing occasionally. They stop it from being too uniformly dark; adding a flash of light in makes the sadness even more poignant.

Really liking this.

"all adding up to the same thing: A broken brother whom Lindsey isn't equipped to fix. He ponders changing his major to psychology, but a dark "I know what you're thinkin' so don't even" glower from Eliot changes his mind right back again. Pre-law it is.

Eliot's here, but he isn't, but he is, and Lindsey's never really thought that maybe one day he might not be.

Until now."

Wow. From sniffle to chuckle straight back to sniffle again. Powerful. Looking forward to more.
