okay so I read this update a while ago, stared at the screen in a kind of disbelief, re-read the chapter a few times and then stared at this little 'post quick reply' box with an absolutely blank mind. It's taken me a while to think of something to say in response to the chapter, and I still probably don't really know what I"m saying, but I'm going to give it a go. First of all: Gerard seems a lot more crazy than I previously anticipated, I thought he would at least care about Mikey in some way, but that point of the story made me wonder whether or not he really actually cares about Mikey at all. Maybe it's just Mikey's possibly biassed perspective but Frank seems a lot less confident then he did when he first saw Mikey in the basement. Maybe Gerard's broken him or something, I don't really know. This leads me to wonder what kind of relationship Mikey and Frank will have in the future. Seeing Mikey being treated like that should hopefully allow Frank to realise that he isn't the nutter like his brother is, but just someone who was dragged along for the ride. And lastly, Aow did Gerard find out about Mikey and Frank? And was he pissed because of the fact that it was Frank, the fact that Frank's a guy? I have no idea, and that is why I love this story so much. Oh, and happy new year!
