I still check back for updates about once a month. Please keep posting whenever you have time! Loved this about Jordan & Graham hanging out in the newest Ch 56. Your stories are so realistic & true emotionally they just pull me in. I still want to low if anything happened with Tina & Angela!

I got so excited when I received an email that you updated this story. MSCL life fan fiction is slowly becoming non-existant, which makes me sad. I love this chapter and how easy it is. I can totally imagine being at that dinner and seeing the exchange between Jordan and Graham. My favorite part of your writing is the attention to details, like propping Edith on his shoulders, and how Graham rubs the back of his head when in deep thought. You really know the characters well. The show and characters will always have a special place in my heart, and I want to thank you for doing a great job at keeping it alive.

I am re-reading lots of these chapters and loving them even more the 2nd time around. I still want to read more about Angela & Tino and if anything happens between them.

Ha, yea Angela, poor Jordan. This is why everyone always hates the cheerleader. A bit stereotypical, but definitely adds to the back story and character development to help answer the all important, "Why is J the way he is?"

So, one of my favorite chapters of this lovely, long work. You got the details just right, definitely takes me back to an early 90s scene. Loved the basement party and band name/lyric checks.
The relationship between J and Lisa is fairly interesting. You do a good job of setting up the fact that she is very motherly to him. The sibling dynamic between them is very...open. I mean he loses his virginity in her bed and she almost helps engineer it. Never in a million years for my brother and I. Did you have a particular inspiration for their dynamic, or did you just need J to have a mother-ish figure? She is almost a confidant in addition to a mother, IMO.

Interesting back story with the whole baseball thing and connection to his sister and Tino's family.

I really like the idea that you are exploring Jordan's background so thoroughly. I am curious what at the end of the chapter makes him kiss her as a response to her not wanting to feel better (distraction for her, goodbye, its now or never, etc.)
Question about the time line. Your dates and ages make Jordan born in 1977. So he would be a 17 year old junior during the fall of 1994. If he was held back twice, wouldn't he be 18 as a junior? Is my math/reasoning or facts wrong? Maybe you have different reasoning?
Thanks for the stor(ies). I am trying to retread and review them.

So excited to see an update! Love these peeks into Angela & Jordan's lives.
| Guest chapter 39 . 5/11/2014
Like! It's cool how you show Jordan moving through life, just trying on all these different ways that he can be. And of course I like that you tie that back to his relationship with Angela. I like this character of Layne, but I feel kinda sad for Jordan that he has this cool, functional girl and they still can't be happy. (Is this a way of saying: ANGELA, ANGELA, ANGELA?)

Oh my gosh I love thiiiiiiiis
Everything is so real. Like it's not cheesy or a cliche high school story. Everyone is so interesting. It's so nice to read about Jordan and his friends, especially Tino! Especially since he's just a random name thrown around in the show lol. I just love it omg. You're an amazing writer!
| Guest chapter 3 . 4/1/2014
Never pictured it this way, it's interesting. (Wonder where this influence was when he was pressuring Angela?) It'd be nice if Jordan, Tino, and all guys were actually this sweet about girls and sex.

Something I really appreciate in your writing is Jordan's relationship with his father. I love that it's not simple, or one dimensional, and I love that you see Jordan as somebody, who, no matter how bad something gets, doesn't permanently walk away or shut someone out (and we see this with Angela and others as well). Your Jordan isn't going through life damaged, but the effects of his childhood still linger, and at times surface to haunt him: he's okay - but not perfectly so (even though he's clearly trying hard to be so). Your Jordan's HUMAN. He has flaws and hangups, but he doesn't want to see himself as weak, and he strives to make himself better. And even though the Jordan Catalano we saw in the show was sometimes selfish, hurtful, cold and self-destructive, the roots of who you've painted him to be are there. Like when he insinuates that Angela's abnormal, then exhales, in regret and wishes he could take it back, or when he puts such a high price on honesty (I think "Pressure" is one of the most revealing episodes in terms of Jordan's character; that and "Halloween" and "So-Called Angels".) (I also REALLY loved your "Isolation" 'episode' - so moving.) KEEP THIS UP! :)
