Interesting story and very well written. I'really liked the interaction Mindy-Marcus in chapter 2 and Dave-Marty in chapter 3. By the way, Marty is a really well written character; any chance of seeing him getting a cool, ass-kicking bionic arm and joining our favorites superheroes couple? ;-)
Anyway, congratulations on the work and I'm looking formward for more.

This is easily one of the most coherent pieces of work on this site. Most of the time I feel like I'm sifting for gems in a mountain of crap. But I'm very much enjoying this so far. I can't wait to see the rest of it.

I know I already reviewed the story in its entirety with a great amount of genuine enthusiasm, but I failed to mention my appreciation for your actual writing.
The third chapter in particular is my favourite so far. I love the way you write Marty. His confession about his feelings toward Dave as a superhero and his thoughts of giving it up was exactly how I would picture him admitting something like that. And then, of course, quickly snuffing out the emotion with a crude joke was a perfect Marty move. The entire interaction in the kitchen in particular is a moment I enjoyed reading a couple of times. I look forward to the next chapter, whenever that may be...
And I have to add that I appreciate that you haven't gone and jumped the shark with this. The pacing of the story is part of the reason I enjoy it so much. Amazing job.

Just started reading this story and I like it a lot, especially how you focus on their lives outside Kick-Ass and Hit Girl. Looking forward to the next chapter!

I'm loving this story and can't wait to read more.

This was simply an awesome chapter.
I have a feeling Dave's been witness to Marty's pick-up routines many times before. I suspect though, that Marty knows that HE is the "second best" friend, while Mindy has top spot.
Overall, I loved how Marty pretty much spelled it out to him that Mindy is in love with him. Of course, it's obvious the way throughout the whole conversation the way Dave is defending Mindy even if she's mad at him that he has deep feelings for her too.
So, it was Marty who started the ball rolling with Katie by telling her about law school, etc? Well, Marty definitely has to fall on his sword by going to Mindy and spilling.
I loved Marty's needling Dave to get him to realize that he has feelings for Mindy. I'm honestly surprised he never did it before.
I really enjoyed the Terminator analogy. Of course, Mindy is more like Cameron from "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" than the T-1000. It's so true to character that Dave would just hang on and wait her out. And I really liked how once Mindy accepted it, she seemed to fit right into Dave's circle of friends and interests. (That's something from my fics as well.)
Now, I would think that all the clues -especially the air drying- would've tipped Dave off long ago.
Well, I'm glad Dave is now aware of both Mindy's feelings, what Katie was doing and the fact he can't really be without Mindy. That's the first step to fixing it.
Heh-heh. I think Marcus should pay a rookie ten bucks to drop by the house and claim to be "Demarco" from work. LOL
Mindy's going out alone? That's bad. I'm hoping the next chapter will be Dave doing something in the Big Damn Hero neighbourhood and get back in Mindy's good books.
Awesome chapter. Can't wait for the next one. :-D

I just read all three chapters of this in an hour (I don't like to speed read things that are awesome) and I'm pretty freaking obsessed! I hope you update this soon! I've been away from ff for yearsss and kick-ass and this story are pulling me back in!
(Also, Katie is a cunt)

I love it, I love it, I love it. My absolute favourite KA story I've read so far (and there are some really great ones out there). I hope you post again soon. This one is addictive.

WARNING: THIS IS MY FIRST REVIEW :WARNING
I really like this story it screams to me that this is how they would act in this given situation and its a wonder to read. Everything they do makes me sad by just reading it knowing that a short talk could fix this and make them both so much happier. All the rest i can say other then gushing about how i love this is that i eagerly wait for more and shall follow this with close intent thanks for the wonderful story so far.

Holy crap, you made me shed tears. I don't know what's up with that, but God Damn it Dave! Sort your shit out!
Sorry bout that... It's just- I got feels dude. I really like this chapter even though Dave is so in denial that it got annoying. I guess he doesn't really want to confront things he doesn't know how to feel about, but f*ck! Mindy is hurting right now because of him, and he /could/ try harder. Cause even when a girl wants space, she does want to see the guy making an effort still - even if she won't respond to it. Girls are complicated that way. I should know, I am one.
P.S. I totally agree with you on hoping the film will change certain things from the comic. Too much of the stuff in KA2(comic) were written for shock value rather than building real characters.
