Reviewer: Bgriggs (Signed) · Date: January 04, 2022 06:53 AM · On: Chapter 1

I've read the whole series multiple times and just started again. Always meant to comment on this....Mikey always wanted Pepsi and saltines when sick while Brian wanted ginger ale and ritz crackers. That alone says a lot about the differences in little Mikey and Brian. 

Author's Response:

LOL, I agree.  I am always impressed when people read my stories more than once.  This first one has had an amazing number of reads in the last couple months.  It is now the most read story on MW.  I am vain enough to keep track of those numbers.  Hope 2022 is a great year for you.  Bill

It was an emotional roller coaster but it was totally worth it.

This story is one of the most amazing and engaging stories that I have ever read.

Can't wait to read its sequels ...thanks for the wonderful story.

Author's Response:

You are VERY kind, thank you so much for your comments.  I am really flattered and so happy you enjoyed this story so much.  This is the first story I ever wrote for public consumption.  I owe a lotto Predec2, who has been such a support for me.  Not sure I would have continued this story without her and, of course, the support I recieved from the readers.  I hope you enjoy the sequels and thanks for the nice reviews.  I re-read the chapters you reviewed so I could see what you were wiritng about and that was kind of fun for me, so thanks for that also!!   Bill

Stealing from your child is really a terrible thing to do.  Hopefully Brian won't kill her and have to find somewhere to hide the body.  Bill

I Feel Bad for claire as a women ..no women should go through what claire is going. 

Gus is too cute.

Author's Response:

Gus is a happy little guy.  Addiction leads people to make bad decisions.  Unfortunately Claire has made a bunch of bad decisions.  Bill

Reviewer: Wren (Signed) · Date: September 04, 2018 01:34 PM · On: Chapter 100

I'm terrible because I hardly ever leave feedback but tonight really had to take the time to thank you for these stories.  Whenever I need a fix of anti-Mel, anti-Mikey I know that I can re-read some of these.  Ditto when I need a fix of "Brian is actually the most ethical person on the show".


So thank you.  I very much enjoy them and look forward to each new chapter of each of the stories.

Author's Response:

Thanks for the nice comments!!  I'm glad that you enjoy my long saga.  Bill

HA! Michael once more shows us what an egotistical clingy idiot he constantly proves to be. Then he tries to back-pedal out of it to no avail. I was expecting something and this result exceeded my wildest ideas. Well done.

And Justin is awarded the murals' contract; that's going to be a considerable amount of work, for a considerable payday(s).

Got to do some SSW work next. I'm looking forward to returning to this story very soon.

Author's Response:

Glad you are enjoying the story but get back to work!  Bill

Reviewer: Bob (Signed) · Date: June 22, 2017 07:38 AM · On: Chapter 9

Interesting to have the Brown's visiting them. I've never read that in a story before. Maybe the Bloom Gallery is a worthy cause for the JB Foundation. Just a thought.


Author's Response:

I like to blaze new trails!  Mikey is always reliable, he is a consistant jerk!

Reviewer: Bob (Signed) · Date: June 22, 2017 07:16 AM · On: Chapter 8

Always good to add some feel good events to a story - sort of balances out the angst or any drama happening. It seems your story has B&J with money like dirt. My stories did that, too.

Author's Response:

I know, Iread some of yours!  Bill

Reviewer: Bob (Signed) · Date: June 22, 2017 06:53 AM · On: Chapter 7

That was very clever of Justin. I'm already hating Michael again. In my stories he gets totally wrecked or snuffed out. Sometimes I'll save him after extreme torture.

Author's Response:

I think of him as Brian's brother, family is often annoying but we still put up with them.  To Justin he is kind of the in law from HELL!

Reviewer: Bob (Signed) · Date: June 22, 2017 06:40 AM · On: Chapter 6

And a new enemy element enters the plot. Love me some Michael bashing.

Author's Response:

It is a fun thing to bash Mikey!!!

Reviewer: Bob (Signed) · Date: June 22, 2017 06:18 AM · On: Chapter 5

I thought only Stepford fags had barbecue gatherings at home. (hehehe) Nice break from the previous tension - a pause before the metaphorical storm.

Author's Response:

I think as time passes Brian reconsiders some of his "rules"!

Reviewer: Bob (Signed) · Date: June 22, 2017 06:08 AM · On: Chapter 4

How very Joan of you. Thicker grows this plot.

Reviewer: Bob (Signed) · Date: June 22, 2017 05:55 AM · On: Chapter 3

Father Bolton adds an interesting twist to the plot. In this chapter there are a few times you need to make paragraph breaks when the character voice changes.

I need to get back to my work; however, I'm having a hard time ending my reading at the moment. Very good story, Bill.

Reviewer: Bob (Signed) · Date: June 22, 2017 05:44 AM · On: Chapter 2

The plot thickens.....how will this turn out?

Reviewer: Bob (Signed) · Date: June 22, 2017 05:31 AM · On: Chapter 1

That was fun to read! Very descriptive and clear. You started with a main character to have feelings for, and added the hero for the moment. Then you leave the reader wanting to know more about these characters.

Loved the hair dryer trick, and I'll probably get some ginger ale tomorrow. It's been decades since I've had any and really like it, too.

Since these stories are epic in size, it'll take me some time to read up to your present day writings. I've added this one to my SSW work breaks for something fun to do.

Well done, sir.

I started your story in early February shortly after you posted the last chapter. I knew it would be good when I was reading how Justin man-handled Claire. Now I will pick up where I left off. I can't believe this massive tale was your first story. Great job! 😉

Author's Response:

Thanks for the kind words.  I swear this is the first story I ever wrote.  I never expected it to last for 100 chapters.  It was fun to write and reviews were the icing on the cake for me.  I am glad you enjoyed the story, thanks for letting me know.  I love to hear from the readers!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: Gloria (Anonymous) · Date: April 04, 2016 01:17 AM · On: Chapter 100

Wow! What a story...well done Bill. I look forward to starting the sequel.

I'm curious, what do you do for a living?

I know you're not very fond of Michael, neither am I but I do hope the way he thinks about Justin changes somewhat in the sequel.

Author's Response:

Glad you enjoyed the story.  I work for a software company.  Mikey is never changing.  Hope you enjoy the sequel.  Bill 

Reviewer: Gloria (Anonymous) · Date: March 05, 2016 09:18 PM · On: Chapter 21

Hi there, I've just started this story & I'm on chapter 21.

I am enjoying it very much and I like the way you write.

Question: please tell me Michael is either going to come to his senses or seek some professional help because he clearly needs it.

I look forward to Brian & Justin becoming close to the boys. Peter is very sweet.

Author's Response:

I'm glad to know you are enjoying the story and appreciate your nice commets.  Sadly I must tellyou that I don't think Mikey really has sesnes to come to. I look at him more as Brian's brother than friend, someone that Brian has outgrown but has too many good memories of to stop seeing.  Hope you continue to enjoy the story!!!  Thanks for the review,  Bill

Reviewer: rulisteningbj (Anonymous) · Date: February 28, 2016 11:26 PM · On: Chapter 1

I have been waiting for your story to be completed before I started reading.  I have been burned/disappointed in the past when a good stpry does not get completed.  That being said, I was not disappointed this story was wonderful.  Even though you left us hanging on several issues.  I can't wait to read the sequel.  You had me in  love with the big personality of Jennifer.  She was amazing.  Alice too.  You write beautifully.  You pulled me in and wouldn't let me go some nights way into the morning.  Darn that having to work thing!  Thanks again for a beauitful story.  Looking forward to finding out how things turn out.  Oh, I forgot I never liked Mikey, Lindsay or Joan.  Great job in writing them. 

Dee Dee


Author's Response:

Hi Dee Dee, thanks for taking time to review.  I am really glad you enjoyed the story.  I enjoyed writing it.  Our likes and dislikes of characters seem to match up pretty closely.  Of course I love the Jennifer in this story, always lookig out for her boys.  I hope you enjoy Holiday Happenings.  If you are going to wait to read until that is completed it won't take as long as this story nut there will be another sequel following.  Thanks agaian for the review!!!!  Bill

Hello, it´s finally me. Everything about this wonderful chapter is said and done....Just let me tell you my favourite moments and lines throughout the chapter.

"..to make Sunshine´s baby plans come true.."

"John was thrilled that he and Patrice were able to kiss..."

"Isn´t it great how things just really work out"

"Maybe they ca get a family rate at the mental hospital"

and the last: "Jennifer tucked them into bed.." I wish you would have written "Tucker tucked them into bed"LOLOLOL!!

Thanks as much as stars in the night - uncountable!

Awesome ending to the story. Sad that Lindsay's abuse was real- Melanie is still hot and cold and she needs to realize that Brian and Justin are there for the kids.  Michael should have a button-  "It's all about me" to wear at all times- jsut so he doesn't forget.  Can't wait for the sequel

Author's Response:

Glad you enjoyed the last chapter. We knew Lindsay's parents were horrible we just dodn't know how horrible. I think Mel got a good dose of reality from Justin. I love the idea of the button, that would be perfect. Mikey might get that as a a Holiday gift. Thanks to the review!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

    Congratulations on 100 Chapters. I just want to thank you for sharing this story with us, as for me, it has been terrific reading. 

     I’ll say this for you.  When a character goes bad, you really send them to the depths.  Examples:  Claire and Lindsey.  The other jerk or problem person you keep around is Michael.  I know you say he is clueless, but he is person who when you look at all his statements, is simply mean, nasty whatever…  I think calling him clueless is three steps up.  I really don’t like him.  I guess you can tell.

    I was surprised by this potential surrogate, I would have thought that her physical appearance would be top priority.  I would think they would choose someone who looks similar to Justin, definitely blond.  That way I would envision Baby Taylor as a little Justin or Justine.  Not some dark haired kid who could look like Michael.  (Just kidding, as that would drive Brian crazy  It could look like Melanie).  I don’t blue eyes is enough…but maybe..

    So great, let’s move on when you are ready to the Sequel.  One request is that you keep Jennifer as a major character.  All I can say is that she is wonderful.

   Thanks again for the story.


Author's Response:

Well my friend you start out really nice and than things go downhill just a little.  I think you need to talk to someone about your dislike for poor Mikey.  You always make me laugh!!  Don't worry about Eden's dark hair she is a gestational surrogate.  She is the oven but the bun is prepared elsewhere.  B&J have already picked donor eggs from a blonde, blue eyed art student. I think I mentioned that a bunch of chapters back but it migth just be something I kept to myself???  There is a good chance of Brian getting his wish of a little Sunshine running around the house.  We'll see if he is still so happy if he gets a little chatterbox like his big Sunshine. 

The new story will jump ahead a little in time but will be the same cast of characters.  I would never let Jennifer go by the wayside, I love her too much.  Thanks for all your feedback.  I always enjoy reading your comments and sometimes giving you a hard time about them.  Hope you enjoy Holiday Happenings!!!!  Bill

Wow Fantastic update.  Have to admit Linz had a terrible childhood, hers was sexually abuse, with her mother closing her eyes and turning her back to what as going on, Brian's was the physical abuse from his father with his mother doing the same.  Still I don't like Linz and the games she plays and all the hate and jealousy toward Brian and esp. Justin.  Mikey still the whinny arse. Love Jen showing her true self to Ron and Nancy Peterson.  All of Gus's goodness comes from his Daddy and Papa, can'tee any of Linz in him. Love Grandma Jen with her two boys Gus and Kevin. 

Hate to see this end, but looking forward to sequel.

Thanks for sharing!


Author's Response:

Lindsay's childhood makes her easier to understand doesn't make her a nice person.  I like to think that Gus is the little boy Brian could have been had he gotten any love.  He is a sweet soul.  Grandmom Jen does what needs to be done from taking care of Ron & Nancy to planning a whole day of fun activities for her "grandsons".  What a nice memory that will always be for Gus and Kevin and I bet Ron & Nancy never forget their morning with Jennifer.  I think 100 chapters is a good place to stop.  So proud and happy to be represented in a couple of the Top Ten lists.  The story line will continue in two sewuels once kind of short and one hopefully just as long as this story.  It all depends on if the readers keep reading, I'll keep writing.  This story never would have appeared here without Predec2, I cannot thank her enough for all her support and encouragement.  Also great thanks to you JoAnn and all my other reviewers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

I hope everyone who reads and enjoys this story make a contribution to Midnight Whispers, no matter how small.    Bill

Hi sweet B. : I really enjoyed this last chapter of Sickness and Health. Jen is my hero she has lived thru so much and came out the better for it. I'm glad she loves Brian as if he was her own, that was a huge step for her. About Lindsay, she may be a nut case, but it doesn't explain the gambleing, the thief at the gallery, her snottyness with John and Peter, her disregard for Gus and her hate of Justin. All this happened long before she had the final straw. I truly hope for shock therapy and a long rest in a mental hospital. Ron and Nancy are slugs but that's no news--Ron got what he deserved for trying to threaten with custody of Gus, they are not fit to raise a houseplant. Mel can't raise two children and work and Gus's mental health shows he needs the love of his daddy and papa rather than Mel who is clearly over stressed, mikey is little or no help he sees people who have their own lives and their own  families to take care of , he listens to no one and is about as smart as a shoe lace. I'm really excited by your follow up story--a new baby and more from Kevin and Gus and John and Peter maybe Mel could move closer to Brian and Justin it would be good for Gus and would help Mel being away from mikey that would be a great stress relief. Your Sally has loved every word you written and can't wait for your new chapters in your continuing saga of Brian and Justin.

Author's Response:

Hey Sally, I think maybe Nancy should go to Lucy's advice booth to try and get her life on track.  I think Jen started to love Brian when she realized how much Justin loved him and how much he really loved Justin. i think we may understand Lindsay better but I don't expect she will suddenly become a really great person.  Anyone who threatens Jennifer's family will suffer the consequences.  I'm sure that was what Ron was thinking as he writhed around on the hall floor.  We can always be sure that Mikey will never change, it would be a waste of money for him to pay Lucy her nickel. Mikey ignores even free advice that is given him.  I don't think Brian would like anyone moving too close to them.  I think he likes a little distance.  If Mel and the kids move out of the loft B&J can always stay there on occasion.  So glad you enjoyed the final chapter and that you were kind enough to let me know that. I LOVE REVIEWS!!!!!!  Sweet B

First congratulations on 100 chapters, that's a huge accomplishment!

I loved seeing Justin being a little pit-bull, that sounds just like him...

The End... Now that I didn't see coming...

But knowing there's sequel on the way makes it easier to handle... Great first story, I can't wait for "Holiday Happenings!"

You know when you order something online, it's being shipped to you and you're waiting and waiting for this thing to finally arrive? Then the day finally arrives...it's there. that sence of excitement as you are about to open it. EHart flutters a bit cause you know....you just know that THIS has finally arrived. You open it up and.........it's PERFECT! It's exactly what you wanted. 

Same thing here. I honestly have been waiting (not always) patiently for this. You know, checking my emails every day, waiting for the ipdate notification. finally it arrives and I'm so bloody excited, but I have to wait because it's time to leave for work. (and yes...of course I'm reading it at work!! DUH!! lol) 

There's this other feeling of almost dispondency. That this part is over. What a journey you have taken us all on. It's so far beyond brilliant. Not often a story really gets me involved. I mean, I read them adn thoroughly enjoy them, but only a few authors that really take me on teh emotional journey of the story. You my dear Bill do that in every single chapter. I've laghed adn giggled. I've been brought to tears and at times have had to stop reading, go have a cigarette and cool off as I've been pissed off. :)

All that being said, I'm not sure what else I can say as far as reviewing specifics on this chapter. Ron and Nancy...there are no words. The ick factor, teh extreme anger adn disgust I feel oozes of of me like pools of black gunk. While a part of me was questioning the validity of Lindsey's accusations, another part honestly though that it's such a touchy subject, that you wouldn't do that. So much of Lindsey's behavior, while she may not have rememberd it really until Ron broke down the door, it was obviously starting to reach her sub concious. While I may not like her, it expalins alot and I definitely feel for her. Hopefully she gets the help she needs.

Jennifer. I so love her! I love your portrayal of her. She was wicked with Ron & Nancy and so wonderful with Gus and Kevin. Interactions with Gus and the family sure is making a huge impression on Kevin. He's really come out of his shell. It's wonderful to see. 

B&J are fabulous. No surprise. The step up in all cases adn come through, even if it's not something they want to do. They do what's in teh best interest of the kids with Gus adn teh boys at the forefront. They may love JR, but she isn't necessarily their first priority, (as much as Mel may wish it  now it seems) Mel...I'm never sure how to always take her. She's such a bitch, but at the same time, she is trying in terrible circumstances. I think it's finally hitting home that B&J are solid. Are good & strong. That her previous character assasination attempts, were 1) perhaps force of habit and 2) She has this sense of entitlement about her. she's a women, a lesbian in a man's world so see me...hear me. Trying to prove herslef to the point of being almost detrimental.

I'm kind of heartbroken that this chapter is over. thrilled to know that a new series will begin soon. 

Sorry for the prolific review. Probably a bit too long, but...oh well. Your fault for being so gifted! ;) lol

thank you again Bill for this..AMAZING story! can't wait to start in on teh next one.

At least now I can put this puppy onto my kindle.




Author's Response:

Hi Elaine, a long chapter deserves a long review.  I apologize for the delay, kept double guessing parts of this chapter.  Seemed like lots of readers wanted Lindsay to be lying.  B&J are always there for friends and family.  Mel hates to ask for help or acknowledge that she even needs help.  Justin gave her good dose of reality.  She seems to take things beteer from Justin.  I hate to think I am contributing to your smoking - it's bad for you! - but how can I complain with after all your very nice comments.  I guess it is no secret that I love Jennifer in this story.  She really gets a lot of the best lines and always comes out on top.  Melanie may think she is a strong woman but i think even she knows not to tangle with Jennifer.  I mean how can you not love a pearl wearing, country club mannered woman kneeing a guy in the balls when he pisses her off.  That was my favorite part of this chapter.  This same woman plans a whole day fun activities for her "grandsons".  I think Roxanne is finding out that Kevin can get along without her which is also a good thing.

Thanks you for all your reviews.  I thought 100 chapters was a good place to stop but the story goes on in the sequels.  I really appreciate all your support!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

How awful for Lindsey. I'm glad Justin as able to extend her insurance.

I am happy the weekend went well for Gus and Kevin. And how sweet that Peter was helping Gus with his math.

Onward to new adventures!

Author's Response:

Maybe their horrible childhoods is what caused Brian and Lindsay to become friends.  Gus and Kevin had fun with all of Grandmom Jen's planned activites.  I think Gs looks on his older cousins as kind of heros so he was happy to get help from Peter.  The story will continue.  Thanks fr all your support.  Bill

RL has been kicking me the last couple of weeks, and I didn't want to comment until I had donated, so I just reread this chapter to enjoy before I commented.

I had forgotten about the last part! Now I can't wait for the next chapter, to see if there is any truth to what Lindsey said. It is a truly is a fucked up world, for all you show us a wonderful family life for the most part.

A belated wish for a Happy New Year!

Author's Response:

It is great that you were able to make a donation!!!!!!  Sorry that RL has been interfereing with fun stuff like reading B&J fiction.  There are good times & bad in life - hmmm that could make a good name for a story - and I try to show both.  The next chapter should answer if Lindsay is telling the truth or not.  Thanks for the new year wishes, hope we all have a great 2016.  Thanks for all your support for my story and now for Midnight Whispers!!!  I hope everyone who is able will make a donation.  Chapter 100 will wind up this part of the story but sequels will continue it.  I have already created a "series" which will group all the stories together.  Hope everyone will continue to read my stories.  Bill

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: January 13, 2016 01:20 AM · On: Chapter 99

I've been thinking.  Is Lindsay so off, that she's susceptable to suggestions, ie could she have seen something on TV and substituted herself in the victem's place?  I know she's devious but is she devious enough to have made the whole thing up?  Great story, you keep us on the edge of our seats.

Author's Response:

I am feeling bad for Lindsay.  Most of my faithful reviewers are really thinking she is faking the whole abuse thing.  I have apparently really made her a serious bitch that lots of you strongly dislike.  To be honest this may take my planned story line down a different path.  I haven't decided what to do.  The next (last) chapter may be kind of a surprise for all of us or not or maybe????  So now I am on the edge of my seat with the rest of you.  As always, my friend,  I appreciate hearing from you!!!!!!!  Bill

Poor Lindsay, I almost feel sorry that I have made her such a villain that no one believes anything she says...  almost!!  Bill

Reviewer: Bryton4ever71 (Signed) · Date: January 12, 2016 12:06 PM · On: Chapter 99

WOW!! I am confused with a capital C. So...what is going on with Lindsay? Has she...just gone completely cray cray? So...was she just locked in the room planning the whole time to pull the rapo card or are these ligitimate flashbacks? Cuz...this is right out of left field here. I mean she was living there for a while with no problem with her father. 

But at the same time stealing petty cash, that whopping lie she told her parents about it, moving out of Mel's, starting something with Tom, crashing a party....these are all deliberate and intelligent acts that required planning and some sort of right mind thinking. Self desctructive, sure, but well, planning and knowing what she was doing.

So what's going on? Oyyy....my head hurts.

Author's Response:

Could she have bought that lock for the door because she didn't feel safe????  Lindsay semmed to feel betrayed a lot and always wanted someone to take care of her, almost seems like maybe she was looking for a father figure to make her feel safe and protected ot she could be a just a lying bitch.  Take an aspirin and maybe the final chapter of this story will satisfy your curiosity.  Bill

Reviewer: Blossomlegs (Signed) · Date: January 12, 2016 04:53 AM · On: Chapter 99

Wow, Linz has really taken a dive off the deep end! 

Love the Gus and Brian dialog. Poor Gus he is so confused about his mommy, just like Brian and Justin.  Mikey blaming everything on Justin. So glad Brian wouldn't listen or take any part of it.

Looks like there are more storm clouds ahead.

Fantastic update, thanks for sharing!


Author's Response:

Hi JoAnn, always great to hear from you.  Lindsay kind of got pushed off by Ron bursting through the bedroom door and reviving some supressed memories.  Lindsay has had everyone confused for a while but hopefully she will get some help now.  Brian doesn't usually pay much attention to what Mikey has to say.   He loves him like a brother but knows he is clueless.  Storms make us appreciate sunny skies more.  Wasn't that philosophical????   Thanks for taking time to post a review!!!!!!  Bill

Hi, Bill - well, you're doing a bang-up job of portraying Lindsay the psycho she is - ha!  She is one weird chick here - LOL!  I almost feel sorry for her, in a 'mentally jumbled up' sort of way, but it's hard to give her TOO much sympathy when she's given so many opportunities to redeem herself, only to keep messing up time and time again. Let's hope she doesn't get anywhere near the school's treasurer's office, or the PTA money - ha!

Love how Gus has artistic talent, even though he's not blood related to Justin. How I wish they had showed more of their interaction on the show. Since he was Brian's partner, at least for part of the show, it's only logical that the two of them would have seen more of each other than was portrayed on the show.

Thanks again for another unique update.  Best wishes for the coming year.  ~Kim

Author's Response:

Hi Kim. hang on to your seat Lindsay gets more psycho in the next chapter.Glad you are still enjoying the story.  I plan to bring it to an end soon and start a sequel.  Hope 2016 is a great year for all of us.  Thanks for taking time to post a review.  Bill

It´s always a nice moment to have a new chapter on screen - makes me smile! I just needed those moments with "our family" in this holiday season.

Well, no BBQ without trouble. This time our dear Lindsay brings the bitchy moments. I hope Brian will loose his temper only one time, and she will understand and play her manipulative games elsewhere. I know Jen and Justin are the peacemakers and voices of reason, but I think it is time for some lightning and thunder and consequences. Where is Melanie, by the way?

Now I´m patiently waiting for the next chapter. I wish you and your beloved ones a wonderful and healthy year 2016!

Author's Response:

Hello my friend, Best 2016 wishes for you!!  I don't think Brian ever wants to lose his temper in front of Gus.  I forgot to mention in this chapter that Melanie uses weekends to catch up on legal work, sshe has to work hard to re-establish herself.  Also Mel likes to decompress after being a single Mom all week.  Working on 99, I think there will be some surprises.  Always enjoy your comments!!!  Bill

Reviewer: Blossomlegs (Signed) · Date: January 06, 2016 02:44 AM · On: Chapter 98

Linz just lost Tom, just hope she doesn't make his life or work place miserable for him,she canbe such a "B". She certainly didn't make anything better between her and Gus, poor kid good thig he has Brian , Justin, his cousins, plus Grandma Jen. Kevin and Gus are going to have such a great time with their Grandma Jen and Tucker. Mikey was very subdue in this chapter?!

Great update! Wishing and hoping you  and yours have a wonderful 2016!

Thanks for sharing!


Author's Response:

Hi Joann, happy new year to you!!  I think maybe Lindsay will try and make trouble for Tom but not sure she will suceed.  Next chapter may answer some questions about Lindsay's behavior.  I think you are right about a fun overnight for Kevin & Gus with Grandmom Jen and Tucker.  Thanks for the review, glad to know you enjoyed this chapter!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: bktush (Anonymous) · Date: January 04, 2016 12:07 PM · On: Chapter 98

Hey sweet B. I really enjoyed this update. We all know Lindsay thinks she's entitled however I just think she's a crazy bitch. I felt sorry for Tom, but it didn't take long for him to figure out Lindsay and I was glad Justin and the others tried to make him feel welcome. I find it hard to believe that mikey didn't let it slip where everyone was going to be, maybe to hope Justin would be ungracious. I am so glad Gus and Kevin are going to spend the night at Jen's that ought to be a fun evening for her "grandsons". Peter still seems angry at John, I guess that is good in someways, Peter won't try to follow in his brothers footsteps and inforces John to behave and not to bow to peer pressure and to try to make amends to Peter so once again they can trust each other.Love, your Sally

Author's Response:

Hi Sally, Hope Charlie is well.  Glad you enjoyed the latest chapter.  I think we may learn more about Lindsay's craziness in the next chapter.  Tom will be giving Lindsay lots of room but somehow I don't think that will please her.  Mikey can create trouble without even trying.  I think Jen and the grandsons, & Tucker, will enjoy their time together.  I think Peter is just emerging from John's shadow.  Brothers sometimes annoy each other but that doesn't mean they don't love each other. Always good to hear from you.  Best wishes for 2016.  sweet B.

Firstly Happy New Year

Secondly, thanks for another wonderful chapter. I love this story and the detail you give it. It's such a fully realised reality you have created. Kudos.

Lastly, I'm sure you have plotted out your next chapters but I would really love it if Lindsay lost her job, her parents sell their house and kick her out, Brian & Justin refuse to finance her, so she ends up moving in with Michael who makes a big deal about how he is the better man than Brian. Reality would soon hit though when he is forced to start selling his collectibles to finance lindsay.

One can dream :-)

Anyway, looking forward to your next update

Author's Response:

Happy New Year back to you.

Thank you so much for you compliments about the story, I appreciate them!!!!!!

I do have a slightly different plan for Lindsay but your plan did give me a good laugh.  Poor Ben would be stuck with Lindsay as well, he has enough to deal with just Mikey.  Some parts of your wish plot idea comes true so you will have to wait and see what parts happen in the story.  I love to hear from the readers and I have been known to take suggestions for plot lines.  Thanks for taking time to post a review, as you probably know I love to get them.  Bill

Great chapter. The barbeque was interesting. 

Lindsay will never learn. I feel sorry for Gus.

At least Tom found out how she is before he got attached, although it would have been interesting for someone to mention Melanie and then let her explain how she can't make up her mind.

Brian and Justin work so well together.

Author's Response:

Glad you enjoyed the latest chapter.  BBQ had some surprises for everyone.  I'm sure Tom is relieved to find out about Lindsay's insanity before they got too involved.  Something tells me Lindsay is not going to accept gong their separate ways.  You know I meant to note that Mel uses the weekends to catch on legal work.  I think she is too busy trying to re-establish herself as a lawyer and taking care of Gus & JR to worry too much about Lindsay.  B & J are a great team. Thanks for taking time to review.  Beast wishes for 2016.  Bill

Happy New Year and it is so good to see more on this story this year.  Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if Mikey had suggested that Lindsay come to the cookout.  This was Lindsay at her manipulative best. She even tried to make it see like she and Tom had plans for later.   Poor Tom, or maybe not so poor, since he most probably not spend any more time with each other.  I wonder what it was about Lindsay's face that scared him.  Another wonderful chapter!!!!

Author's Response:

Happy New year to you my friend. I always look forward to your comments. Hard to tell what the truth is with Mikey, he views things in his own unique way. I think you are correct that Tom will not be spending much time with Lindsay. Always appreciate your support. THANKS, Bill

I'm waiting patiently for a baby sunshine it makes no difference a girl or a boy as long as it has blond hair and blue eyes Brian will love it regardless. A little angel with a crooked halo, truly a little devil with Justin's smile I can just see a harried Brian chasing down the little devil and John and Peter laughinh their asses off.   Sally

When I said I was Lucy I guess my temperment is more in line with hers-like pulling the football away as Charlie Brown is going to kick it, but girl who had the sweet Baboo was Sally, Charlie's little sister.Now what I wanted to say if you turn this into series it's really quick to go back and forth from part 1 to part 2. also it helps and about 50% of authors do it, instead of chapter one,etc.chapter, like the picnic, or Joan's fall, or my favorite-Baby's here, it really helps when you want to go back.

    Interesting chapter.  Lots of clues but things can go in any direction.  Lindsey seemed more centered in this chapter.  Then again, I am not sure what her problem was.  Could it be that this new guy gives her a reason to focus.  Fine, but why isn’t JR, Gus, and Melanie enough reason to focus? I don’t get it or really I don’t get her. 

   As far as Justin’s child, I think for Brian a baby girl will sort of complete him.  He already has Gus.  But for Justin who grew up with a sister, a boy would be good for him.  I can see three easels of different hights in the Justin’s studio.  I think 3 boys would be great.(Justin, Gus, and a boy child)  So there you have it, I vote for a girl and 1 vote for a boy. I hope that helps.

   I don’t know what they are look for in a surrogate.  I wonder if the surrogate will be just that and disappear or are they thinking of a mother.  I don’t know.

   Anyway – happy holidays to you and the rest of the MW World.



Author's Response:

I like to keep you guys guessing. Don't count on Lindsay staying centered for very long.  That pendulum is ready to swing back in the opposite direction.  A vote for a boy and a girl, hmmmmmmmm, Bruce/Caitlyn???  I think they will know when they find the right surrogate.  Hope yur holidays are great!!!  Thanks for all the reviews, always look forward to reading your comments.  Bill

LIndsay- skirting around the issue that she has a female partner of sorts-  she is heading toward more trouble-  she wants to put herself as a typical divorce- not sharing that she walked out


Joan-  interesting that Brian arranged for food for her-  it is difficult to deal with family at times


The surrogate-  they will find someone


I can't believe that you are at chapter 97-  still loving the story and keeping it interesting

Author's Response:

I think you may be correct that Lindsay is heading for more trouble.  Stay tuned!!!  I believe that Brian has some feelings for Joan.  If she would accept him for the person he and admit her past mistakes I think they could have a better relationship.  I can hardly believe I am chapter 97 myself.  All my loyal reviewers keep me going so pat yourself on the back.  Best wishes for the holiday season and the new year.  Bill

They will know when they find the right one.  Bill

My day has been made!! Another wonderful update. I'm happy to see the progression of baby Taylor-Kinney. And of course, the continued drama saga of Lindsay. 

Have a great Holiday!!!

I'm a happy girl this morning! Terrific update. Lots going on and precursors to much more down the road...Lindsey and this teacher, Tom. Not sure about him. Something is twigging in my brain. Will just have to wait and see.

Shame about the surrogate, but very wise of Justin, knowing to see a few of them before deciding. The right one will come along.

Joan...well, Joan is Joan. Not sure if this is going to be a wake up call for her or will her pride be her downfall? Have to see. Glad that Brian arranged something though. I know that if/when she passes, he'll have a world of guilt of he did nothing. He's doing what he's able to while still keepign himself and his family at a safe distance.

Looking forward to the picnic. 

Have a wonderful holiday. Rest up, relax, enjoy yourself and stay safe.

thank you for gifting us regularly with these updates. They are a joy to get. You sharing this story with us all is truly a joy to receive.


Author's Response:

Hi Elaine, happy to know I could make your morning happy.  I think we will read more about Tom & Lindsay in the next chapter.  I don't think Joan will change much mostly because she does not want to change.  She would prefer the world to chnage to suit her better.  Thank you for the very nice comments I am really happy to know you are enjoying the story and I always appreciate seeing your review.  Hope you have happy holidays.  Bill

Man.....Lindsey is such a selfish git. I realize she has issues, mentally, but that doesn't excuse everything she's done. Her sense of entitlement is over the top. SAdly, it's Gus and JR that are effected the most because of it. She's just to self absorbed to see it. thankfully Gus has so many to love and support him. Brian has truly develped parently skills that far suprpass all expectations. I do wonder about JR though. Between Mel and Micheal, Deb etc...will they be as fair and impartial as B&J try to be. They are all prone to the "blame game" and having JR included, where they have Gus on the fringe. If it were just Lindsey I'd be happy to tell her to go and do whatever she wants....whoever she wants! 

I think Craig is going through the same sort of thing. He's so out of touch with the reality of things. Not on the same level as Lindsey of course, but again, he's so self absorbed, he assumed that Justin would simply jump at the chance to establish a relationship once again. That Justin was not a whole without his father's approval. And the fact that he went to Brian shows that. He assumes that Justin is so dependant on Brian, that he's need bB's "permission" or what have you. I think it's a hard pill for him to swallow to realized that HE's the insignificant one. (I still don't entirely trust him or his reasons behind wantint to reconnect) Again...it's about what Craig wants, what he wishes to have happen, not what anyone else wants or don't want.

Very nice of Brian to talk to Pat. pretty awkward position she was in when Lindsey was there, and very little explanation either.

Excellent chapter as always!! Again, did my little happy dance when I saw it and went off immdiately to read.



Author's Response:

Lindsay has always been selfish!  Now she is nutty and selfish, not really any improvment.  If it wasn't for Gus & JR I don't think anyone would car about what Lindsay does, except for Melanie.  I think Carig thought everyone would wlecome him back and his got a rude awakening.  Non one really missed him.  I think Justin has good memories of a loving father as he was growing up so he may want to give Craig a chance.  Not sure Craig has it in him to accept Justin for who he is not who Craig wishes he was.  Glad i was able to trigger a happy dance!!  Thanks for taking time to let me know you enjoyed this chapter.  You know I love to get reviews!!!!!  Bill

Oh no, Lindsay isn't about to straddle the fence again is she lol.

Author's Response:

Yeah i think she might just be about to do that.  She is very confused abut everything right now.  Bill

Reviewer: eureka1 (Signed) · Date: December 07, 2015 09:59 AM · On: Chapter 96

I wonder how long the smoother sailing will last for Lindsay, especially since she hasn't addressed her gambling addiction  I also wonder if she has recognized and accepted her own bisexuality.

I question what Craig will try next; he certainly has no clue how to approach or accept Justin. I also doubt he is being honest about his motives. He doesn't seem to realize yet that he can't manipulative Jennifer, Brian, Justin, or Molly.

Author's Response:

I see rough seas ahead for Lindsay.  For some reason when she gets unhappy she goes for d--k, not sure why.  Craig is clueless.  I think he always hoped that the members of his family were missing him and pining for him to return.  He is currently getting a dose of harsh reality.  Thanks for the review!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: Tasha (Anonymous) · Date: December 07, 2015 07:54 AM · On: Chapter 96

I really dislike Lindsey  I don't think Lindsey should be happy another awesome chapter 

Author's Response:

Poor Lindsay, very harsh. LOL  The only problem is an unhappy Lindsay affects other people espcially Gus and JR.  Glad to know you enjoyed this chapter!!!  Thanks for taking time to review, I LOVE to get them.  Bill

Reviewer: emac66 (Signed) · Date: November 30, 2015 05:49 PM · On: Chapter 95

As much as Brian may be uncomfortable with the "talking stuff" he's doing a great job with the kids, whether it be Gus or John & Peter. He seems to be saying just the right thng to ease them all of their worries, what ever they may be. His realtionship with J&P is terrific. Love reading about their interactions.

It's a shame that Lindsey is such a selfish bitch. thankfully Brian, Justin and Mel are able to take on the parenting as a team. Gus is very lucky to have them as well as then extentions of Alice, Charlie et al.

Lovely interactions with Ted and Nina. Glad little Nina is able to make a friend of the neighbour boy.

this was a treat to see as always. I love tuning into the site here and seeing an update.

Many thanks!!

Author's Response:

I think Brian surprises himself sometimes. His releationship with Justin has freed up a few emotions in him. Gus is lucky to have people who care about him in his life. Nina is enjoying life with her new family and it is getting Ted & Blake more involvedwith their neighbors.   Thanks for the nice comments. I am really happy you enjoy the story!!! Bill

Reviewer: julia005 (Anonymous) · Date: November 30, 2015 09:57 AM · On: Chapter 95

Great chapter!

The resumé of the picknick: Lids is a manipulative and lonely woman! "I need time to find myself..." No, time to get my way. Brian did well with his answers, I think he will never meet her again and expose Gus to that! She lost her family all be herself!

I hope Peter´s fears have gone after Brian´s speech- he did a great job. Beautiful moments...."I love you Uncle Brian". The stars will shine even brighter......

Thanks for the nice reading time I had yesterday!


Author's Response:

Hello Julia, always so good to har from you. I am glad you enjoyed this latest chapter. You truly understand Lindsay. I think there is more to come on the Lindsay saga. I think Peter will get more secure the longer he stays with his uncles. Thanks for the nic review!!! Bill

Reviewer: CFC (Anonymous) · Date: November 30, 2015 04:37 AM · On: Chapter 95

Craig and Lindsey got some truth dumped on them, but I don't think that they will learn from it.

I love how Brian claimed his relationship with Justin. And he did well with Peter and John also, he is growing all the time.

Author's Response:

I think Craig may be getting a clue that he has to revise his attitude if he wants any chance of reconciling with his son.  Lindsay exists in her own world and doesn't really get what people tell her.  I agree Brian has grown a lot and is growing more.  I think the nephews understand him and appreciate him.  Thanks for the review!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: Blossomlegs (Signed) · Date: November 30, 2015 12:05 AM · On: Chapter 95

So loved the update on Nina and her Teddy Man.

Brian , in his own way was great with Peter and handling John's misstep.

So glad Brian set the heteros straight and Linz. Linz I feel is still going to be a B----,to Justin and a thorn in both Brian and Justin's side, she hasn't even found out about the baby.

Fantastic update, thanks for sharing!


Author's Response:

Hi JoAnn, I thought it was about time to check in on the Teddy Man and his life.  It was a big deal for Brian not to run from the room screaming when Peter shared his feelings.  Brian has come along way!!!  Lindsay is not dealing with the real world.  She should know how Brian would react to be misidentified as a hetero couple.  I hope Gus enjoys the picnic because so far Lindsay is not having that good a time.  Thanks for the review, I love, love, love to get them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: November 29, 2015 04:43 PM · On: Chapter 95

What a lovely look into everyones life.  John surely expected someone to yell at him and poor Peter was worried that they would be forced to leave.  Sadly if they'd been living with their mother, the yelling would have been a done deal.  Is Craig really interested in getting to know his son, or is he wanting to talk him out of taking over his company?  Teddy Man is in a good place with Nina and Blake and everyone is happy.  Lindsay is unbelievable with thinking taking money out of the till was no reason to let her go.  I bet she deliberately let that other woman think they were married, so it would play into her little world.   Her mother seems under the delusion that she doesn't need to make time for her grandson and he will welcome her with open arms despite not knowing her.  I wonder what else she plans for the picnic?  How is Jenny Rebecca faring with Melanie and Mikey?  Great chapter all the way around.

Author's Response:

My friend, always makes me happy to see your review. I think guilt envoking, ala Jennifer, was more efffective than yelling. Peter is way more senistive than his brother. Peter knows they have a good thing going and doesn't want anything to endanger their new lives. They have plenty to eat, new clothes, their own rooms and a swimming pool - what's not to like.  I think Craig is kind of lonely and reevaluting some of his life decisions but is till not ready to fully accept Justin and his way of life. TM, B & Nina make a very nice family group.  Ted always needed someone to love and take care of and now he has two somebodies.  It is pretty obvious that the whole Peterson family is somewhat delusional.  God question about JR, we might have to take a lokk at that situation.  You know I appreciate all your support.  Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill
