Hey, it's been a while, but I'm finally getting the chance to "catch up" a bit so they say. ;) And this did not disappoint whatsoever. It's brilliantly written and really captures the complexity of Rusty's situation and his emotions and the choices that face him, and maybe those answers that he, understandably, doesn't always want to confront.

Well done and insightful, particularly that last section where Rusty would like to think it would be a hard choice between his mother and Sharon, but he knows it wouldn't be - he'd choose Sharon over his own mother - and it just kills him to know that. Poor kid. But that's how it is with abused children - they still love their parents, even though they don't like them and know that their lives would be better without them.

Haha, I noticed the thing with Provenza's wife's name, too. I wonder whether someone close to one of the writers is named Sharon. Or maybe someone lost a bet? :-) I loved this story and how you described Rusty's inner conflict. I am dreading what would happen if they ever brought Sharon Beck back into Rusty's life on the show. Gah!

So angsty! I love this. Nothing is easy for Rusty. :(

This is great. So insightful and in-character. And of course juuust the right amount of heartbreaking for any Sharon/Rusty story. Those two...
I really think that's how Rusty sees the whole situation. I have no idea what would happen if his mother ever came back!
And oh my god WHAT ELSE IS THERE on the winter episodes? I am dying to know.

For kids like Rusty this is usually how they feel. I volunteer at an afternoon program for at risk kids. Some are being raised by relatives and others by foster parents. The thing is, regardless of who they're living with, they always want their moms. No matter how mad they get or how much they say they don't care, the pain is there. I can really see it around birthdays and holidays. Just like Rusty, they feel guilty for loving the person that's there.
Good job expressing Rusty's feelings.

Awwww this such a sad and yet sweet story. I think you captured Rusty's relationship with both his mother and Sharon very well. The poor child is so torn between his real mother and his mother figure/foster mother and you showed it very well.
Thank you and I look forward to the next chapter of Monsters.
