What a journey! That was simply awesome from beginning to end! Sorry I didn't review each chapter, but I was just too eager to get to the next one! So many emotions, so beautifully written and such a joy to read. Well, obviously the sad bits weren't a joy but you know what I mean. It was a story I just wanted to read! I thoroughly look forward to the next installment! I can't think of words to describe just how fantastic this was!

Phew! What a roller coaster ride the first to parts of Bound are!
A really gripping story with great characterisations. You're showing the boys with very human emotions and reactions and interaction with each other. Even Jeff's reactions are very human and very caring.
For my mind, I find it a bit of a long bow that Virgil would also come down with T1 Diabetes - along with John having cancer and Gordon's asthma and hydrofoil accident aftermath. To me it's just too many whumps to one family, but that's my opinion.
I have to admit, there are a few times when I found myself crying as the realisation hits that John is not just unwell - he's dying. And I can say that all of the way you have described John's reactions, his time loss, and the pain is true. I lost my Aunt to a secondary cancer following breast cancer (and she had been in remission for 10 years when the secondary came back), aas well as both my parents to cancer. So for me, everything you have described about his suffering is hittime home to me as being very accurate.
You have done a marvellous job with this arc. I am looking forward to starting to read Bound III

Aww, a heartbreaking chapter in so many ways but it's great that things could be looking up :)

Hahaha, loved the bit about John reeling off Alan and Gordon's war antics! So funny!
Aww but poor Virgil :'( is this family EVER gonna get a break?!

Awww Alan! That was so sweet :D
| Ro-RoWeasley chapter 23 . 4/26/2014
Oh man you've not even finished hurting Virgil yet?! Does this mean he's diabetic? Aww poor Virgil he's really not having a good run at the mo :( Having said that, I love the insight into John's thoughts as always, and the way he was able to get through to Virgil like that - you write it so well! :D I can't imagine how bad Scott's feeling seeing another brother crumble and become ill after everything that's happening to John - just the panic and distress evident as he just has no control is heartbreaking :(

Geez I'm an emotional wreck right now! *wipes eyes and sniffs* That was a beautiful chapter Pyre, very very emotional and heartbreaking. I can see it being a particularly rough road ahead for the family from here and I just hope they don't all fall apart following this news.
I know I keep saying this but I absolutely adore the way you write John's character and the way it is just so effortless. Especially dealing with the dark emotions here, you've shown it really really well and I love it.

So Scotty is still unscathed thank heavens but now you've given John more trouble! Arrghh let's hope the surgery takes care of this! :)

YES, who doesn't love a good disney film especially WALL-E! Definitely more of a family film than Star Wars! Loved the family bonding here, and the descriptions of how and where everyone was sat - made me chuckle especially Alan and Fermat :D

Alan's reasoning was in my head before I read it hehe XD
Although I agree with what Jeff said, after all they went through with the Hood it would be the wrong decision to give up, even if it is more for health reasons than security!
I love all the team/family discussions, and the fact it's between all of them and not just the older few. It really highlights how close they all are, and Jeff is willing to listen to everyone's views about it. :)

Okay THAT was unexpected! Love how John was the only one able to verbally respond haha :P
| Ro-RoWeasley chapter 15 . 4/6/2014
Thank heavens for that, you gave me a bit of a scare! Hay fever really sucks I know how Virgil feels :(
| Ro-RoWeasley chapter 13 . 4/6/2014
So while already in the process of torturing John and nearly killing Gordon YOU'VE NOW TURNED ON VIRGIL?! *throws tea mug at you* PYRE STOP HURTING OUR BOYS! Who's gonna be next, Scotty?
*coughs* You know I love it though XD
But it better not be anything contagious that hurts Johnny even more!

Gotta love a good thunderstorm! :D But why do I get the feeling something bad is gonna happen Pyre..? :P
| Ro-RoWeasley chapter 11 . 3/20/2014
Love the little bit with Alan and both brothers - simple and yet it speaks volumes. He seems a much more open and content kid to the insecure one we saw in the movie :)
Hmmm so will IR testify? Or not? :D
