Not sure if I ever commented on this story when it first came out but I decided to re-read this story for Thanksgiving I love it so much! It's such a feel good kind of story.  Thank you!

Such a fun story (which I just discovered). I'll have to reread at Thanksgiving! :)

Exhaustion, claustrophobia, and stress. Is one sure way to bring on a panic attack...

Thanks for sharing. The story was entertaining, complete change in attitude for Brian with the cooking. Humorous!

Hey Vin :)

Like most of your fics I read them before I joined MW and before I even knew what reviewing was all about.  I love this thanksgiving story and I love how you incorporated a real event (the volcano in Iceland erupting).  It's a really nice thought that nothing can keep these men apart.  I hope RL allows you to return to us (your fans) in the near future.   

Cheers :)

After all that work, they really did need the sleep.

Love your Thanksgiving tale.  Reading it will be a tradition for me.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: November 06, 2014 03:25 PM · On: Top Chef...Maybe...

Poor Brian.  It sounds like the way my Thanksgivings go, so I let my husband do the cooking.  lol.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: November 06, 2014 03:14 PM · On: Brian & the Thanksgiving Dinner...

Love Cynthia's suggestions.  Brian really should let everyone bring a dish.  Brian sooo loves his Sunshine.  "Houston, we have a problem!"  favorite line.

It was good that he managed to get a berth on the train.  Having to travel without being able to bathe would be irritating.  On the other hand, if he ran into the family with all the children, it just might have kept them away.  What more can go wrong on the trip?

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: November 06, 2014 02:58 PM · On: Ash & Other Disasters...

Boy a lot happens to conspire to keep Justin away for Thanksgiving.  There's going to be a lot of running involved.  Will he make it in time?

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: November 06, 2014 05:22 AM · On: Please, tell me a story...

How lovely.  An eight year old daughter and reminiscing about their first Thanksgiving together after Justin returned from New York!

Wonderful story I loved it thank you so much, the banter and love is just how I like Tao hear my boys living their lives. XxChris

What a lovely Thanksgiving fic.  I so enjoyed the telling of the story to their daughter.  I love a married Brian and Justin with kids.  Thanks for sharing your talent. Dee Dee

I read this a while ago. I had forgotten it had started with a daughter. It's a nice Thanksgiving story. I'll have to read it again to get the full effect.



Author's Response:

Thank you, no sleep! I've always liked the idea of Brian and Justin having a girl, for some reason. I guess since he already has Gus (sort of), it would be different for him to raise a girl.

Glad you liked the story.

Cheers,

Vin

Hey!
I loved the story. Brian not only cooking, but for 20 people, is a really interesting an funny concept. I had fun reading it. Thank you!

Don't remember what writer said about good writing, but the words ring true to me: "A good story is the one that evokes strong emotions in the reader. If the reader cares about the people in the story and what will happen to them, then he'll keep reading it..." and blah, blah, blah...

I think you, Vin, achieved it, at least for me because your story made me laugh and made me hungry and made me want to join that gang and eat with them and joke and drink that beer and talk talk talk and...see that great love in Brian's and Justin's eyes that they have for each other. So I did care about that lovely couple and whether they would get together on Thanksgiving despite all the obsticles. I feel such satisfaction and joy from reading it. You writing is so vivid, I feel like I just watched a movie, instead of reading it. Thanks. And KEEP writing! 

Reviewer: Anonymous (Anonymous) · Date: December 06, 2011 04:36 AM · On: ...And That's Why We Ate...

"You fuckers had no faith in my cooking ability whatsoever, did you?"

Duh! :))))

It's hilarious! Made me laugh so hard! And...made me soooo damn hungry! I hated to eat the leftovers from this last Thanksgiving for almost a week, but now, while reading about all that food, even if ruined, I wished I still had them, since I couldn't "get into the story" and join those twenty at their table (which I wanted to do so much!)

It's a wonderful story! Thanks, Vin!

 

Reviewer: NMS (Anonymous) · Date: December 06, 2011 04:06 AM · On: Top Chef...Maybe...

This chapter cracked me up. It really IS hilarious. And I felt the same urge as all the members of the "gang" to get there, to Brian's kitchen, and give him a hand, despite his threat of being thrown out. Well done, Vin!

Reviewer: NMS (Anonymous) · Date: December 06, 2011 03:47 AM · On: Brian & the Thanksgiving Dinner...

Now, I'm getting nervous--more about Brian's cooking (I bet he'll char that poor bird) than about Justin's arriving on time.

Thanks, Vin, so much for keeping me in suspense :), as well sprinkling the story with more spices...

Reviewer: NMS (Anonymous) · Date: December 06, 2011 03:35 AM · On: Trains, Ferries & Children...Oh, my...

This chapter is my favorite!!! Good writing! Detailed, emotional, vivid, humorous, moving. Justin's character shows through and through. The minor characters are very well captured, too. I just love that loud, abnoxious polyglot!  But only to read about her, not to ride on the same train with her :) No, scratch that! On second thought, I'd LOVE to come along with Justin on this trip. Would be soooo much fun!

Despite the very last sentence (...he couldn't have been more wrong...), I still believe (WANT to believe) that Justin will eventually make it to the dinner (even if it's already cooked).

Reviewer: NMS (Anonymous) · Date: December 06, 2011 03:27 AM · On: Ash & Other Disasters...

I admire Justin's determination to GET to not only get to the dinner on time, but to cook it too- it certainly takes guts just to think about it, much less to accomplish it. So I'd LOVE to see how he'll manage to endure his painfully-detailed-exhausting marathon. Hope he'll make it.

Natalie is ADORABLE, as well as the relationship among all three of them.

Dying to know what that first Thanksgiving was like. But I think Natalie's rendition would be too cute, what with her mannerism and gestures and her acute awareness of her dads' love and affection for her (which she exploits to the full :)))

LOLOLOLOL you put in the potato soup!  I'm so tickled!  This story is perfect, hilarious and sweet.  I loved the way the meal finally turned out.  Hurray for Plan B!  It is “the most romantic story in the world, as well as a pretty funny one” indeed.  I know I’ll want to re-read this next Thanksgiving!  Great job, Vin!



Author's Response:

Oh, thank you, Armandyouidiot! The fact that you want to re-read it again next year makes me happier than I can express. And thank you also for an awesome review - it truly makes me want to continue writing.  :)

very nice - I love thinking out into the future and imagining what the boys would be doing - and when I do - they are always as happy as you depict them.

good job - thanks for sharing it

loving life,

Thanks very much, Charle. I imagine the boys the same - forever in love, forever together and forever happy through many trials and tribulations of life. What can I say, I am romantic...

Glad you enjoyed the story!

What a cute, sweet story, Vin!  Loved the way you handled Brian's first try at Thanksgiving dinner and how all the gang rallied around him to salvage it, even though it really wasn't his fault (except the bird).  Clever, too, how you had Justin arrive with the turkey burgers to save the day.  I always enjoy seeing the boys happy and getting a glimpse into their future.  Thanks for sharing this story with us.:P)



Author's Response:

Oh, thank you very much, my friend! I thought it would be a fun premise and I am so glad I succeeded. I truly appreciate your lovely words and all your encouragement.

by the time justin gets home he'll be too tired to eat the meal brian worked so hard to make. what an hysterical situation brian got himself in. him and his stupid pride lol. but justin will appreciate it all the more. can't wait for the next chapter.

Yay Justin’s stateside!  Loved his comments about Charlotte.  Poor Brian, underestimating how long all this would take, such a rookie move!  At least he got the turkey in the oven.  Alas, the mashed potatoes may not make it… potato soup anyone? ;) 



Author's Response:

Thank you for a lovely comment. Sorry my response is so late. And again, thanks for the potato soup idea - brilliant!  :)

This is great...I'm very, very frightened of Brian cooking Thanksgiving, however :-)

Oh, this is priceless, even thinking about Brian not only going grocery shopping for Thanksgiving dinner but cooking it?  This should be quite interesting.  Houston, we have a problem indeed - ha!  I hope someone comes to his rescue, although Brian just might surprise everyone.  If worse comes to worse, even Bob Evans does takeout for Thanksgiving dinner - LOL!

Thanks for the cute, sweet, romantic after-Thanksgiving treat, my dear!  This is as good as Black Friday but not nearly as expensive!:)



Author's Response:

LOL! Thank you, my dear! I'm so glad you like it.

Cheers,

Vin

Reviewer: Armandyouidiot (Signed) · Date: November 28, 2011 03:20 AM · On: Brian & the Thanksgiving Dinner...

I'm with Cynthia, that is so "unbelievably sweet" of Brian to cook, and a little scary, hee.  I want Justin to at least get over the ocean so bad!



Author's Response:

As I've said at the very beginning - nothing terrible will happen to our boys. This is basically a fluff piece. Now, the dinner... well, we'll see if they survive that!  :)

Thanks for commenting!

that is either going to be great or a great disaster.  pretty funny actually.  we'll see.  hope he can have everything come together.. ha ha !!  not betting on it though, i'm sure the gang will bail him out. :)



Author's Response:

Thanks for the comment, Linda! Hope you like the next chapter. I'll do my best to post it in a couple of hours.

Ack, this trip is wearing me out just reading about it! ;p  Those kicking, out of control kiddies are the worse.  Had one behind me on a plane once, kicking my seat, the little dear.  I can see why Justin opted to move on the ferry.  At least he got a bed and shower on the night train.

"Unfortunately, he couldn't have been more wrong..." Uh oh



Author's Response:

Thanks for the comment, Armandyouidiot! Yes, travel with and among children - it's never dull!  :)

Vin

Reviewer: linda (Anonymous) · Date: November 28, 2011 03:07 AM · On: Trains, Ferries & Children...Oh, my...

unfortunately, travel in europe is very much like that, especially on their trains.  poor justin--but he's cope and be fine.  his ultimate goal ever on his mind.  so good :)



Author's Response:

I lived in Europe as an exchange student in college and I've taken enough train, ferry and plain trips around the EU to have experienced just about everything - the screaming babies, the kicking toddlers, the arguing teens AND the loud cell-phone talking, multilingual businesswomen. All of those elements were pretty much taken from various trips in my RL.

Glad you liked it!

Cheers,

Vin

My heart went pitter-pat when Brian yelled to Justin in the security lin and caused his “incandescent smile.”  So romantic! 

“Eyjafjallajökull.” She answered absently, still riveted by the news coverage on screen.

“Gesundheit!” HAHAHA

I love Justin’s determination.  That’s a lot of connections to make.  Can’t wait to see how it goes!
