Do I have it wrong or didn’t Brian have a broken collar bone during the Liberty Ride? Therefore he would know how it would be treated.

I do notlike that Jen is so bossy to Brian.  Spending his money when she feels like it and tellhim what to do.  Brian shouldtell her to back off and Justin too

the O" Brians taking advantage off Jennifer and Justin

Love your stories.  you spent time teeling the story 95% of the time and only5 % at sex.  I love that.  Thanks

hello, tell Brian i ned some money and he will take care of me, such a buntch of munchers



Author's Response:

Brian feels he can never repay Debbie for all her support when he was younger.  Hope you continue to enjoy this story. I reread the chapters you review which is fun - I notice all my typos!   Bill

the hell with Mel, stop paying for their shit and take Gus from them



Author's Response:

Gus does love his Moms.  I think B&J are concerned about disrupting Gus's life and worry he may resent being seperated from L&M.  Glad you are still reading and enjoying this long saga.  Bill

Reviewer: purpledee (Signed) · Date: March 23, 2018 08:32 AM · On: Chapter 35

Just a quick hello to ask if are still doing another sequel to this story line, cos I'm really looking forward to it!

Your story telling is very, very good.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Deb

Hi, I just finished reading both Sickness & Health and HOlidays.  I so enjoyed both stories.  I hope Taylor-Kinneyhs do Disney will be out soon.  You are such a good writer and your stories are always so good.  Thank you for writing them for us to enjoy.



Author's Response:

Thanks!!!!  I am working on the enxy installment.  Some changes in RL don't leave me with as much time for writing as I'd like.  Hope to have something posted soon.  Bill

Sorry for totally forgetting to comment. As you already know, I just absolutely love this verse you've created. I hope you choose to continue it with a "next" chapter. Not only am I looking forward to Brian in Disney, but I'm more looking forward to the arrival of the twins. 

Thanks for giving us readers such wonderful stories to immerse ourselves in.

Hi Tffany, thanks for taking time to post a review.  Sorry I haven't answered sooner.  I am working on next installment but haven't had as much time as I would like to write it.  Hope to post it soon.  Bill

Reviewer: Mychad (Signed) · Date: January 15, 2018 10:09 AM · On: Chapter 35

Hi, I was revisiting your story (again!) and I realize I hadn’t comment on the end of this one, which kind of makes me a bad reader. So first of all, congratulations!!! It is quiet an accomplishment to write such a marathon story! What, 135 chapters if we count both? It is very impressive. I really like your universe and I’ve been kind of using it as a security blanket, constantly re-reading it in the last few months that have been very stressful. I find it comforting because B/J have such a strong relationship in this that we know that whatever happens, everything is going to be ok for them.

 

In this specific chapter, I must admit I’ve been kind of thrown off by that thing with Melanie. It seems really out of character... I mean, she certainly has her misgivings and can overreact to certain things (especially if she feels out of control or when it touch her competitive strike/insecurities), but over something like that? It is not like her. She’s really big on community spirit, equality and solidarity (and sincerely, not just when it suits her like Lindsay sometimes), so Gus helping a less privileged classmate doesn’t seem like something she could ever reprove, on the contrary... And while not especially warmed about the nephews, she never seemed hostile either. I must admit it confused me a bit.

 

However, I wasn’t surprise by Ron pitiful letters at all. When we met him, it was obvious to me that he was not ready to put on all the necessary efforts to rebuild his relationship with his sons. He doesn’t even seem to realize the seriousness of his abandonment. But I’m glad that Claire seems to come around and is starting to understand the severity of her actions. She’s not a bad person, merely someone kind of weak and passive and lacking certain ressources (I’m talking more psychological than material here). But those are things that can be developed when a person is ready to take responsibility and work on herself. It won’t be magical and repair everything, but it would be good for the boys if she does.

 

A thing I think you succeed so well with in your universe is to create interesting original characters (or developing canon minor ones) in a way that makes us care about them, which is not easy to do in fanfiction. I especially like the O’Briens and Kevin. He is such a sweetheart and I love the relationship he developed with Jennifer and also Brian and Justin. It is something that is bringing the Taylor-Kinneys and the O’Briens together in a way that is on the road of making them more family than simple friends. It really shows the power of a child that is different, it’s beautiful. I’m glad Roxane confronted her mother about it, good for her. Their rejection of Kevin is just horrible. Grandparents are supposed to be the ones who find you wonderful for merely existing, not people who judge and discredite you, especially just because a child is different from the others.

 

Not specifically related to this chapter, I also really love the Nina and Teddy Man storyline. You know, I don’t recall reading any other story where Ted becomes a father. In the way you describe it, it really suits him. It’s beautiful to see his loving and caring nature in this way, both with Nina and Violet, and to see Nina coming out of her shell in this new environment. I can’t wait to see Ted in Disneyland tought. I think it is nearly as improbable/funny as Brian in Disneyland!

 

I am also curious about the integration of Joe in the family. It will be an interesting shake on things in the Novotny-Horvath house, probably changing the family dynamic. It will be interesting to follow.

 

Can I dare ending this with a kind of request (or merely suggestion...)? I would really like to also see a more thoroughly storyline for Emmett in a further story. Outside B/J, he is my favorite QAF character. I realize that your story is very family-oriented and Emmett is nowhere in a place to make the decision to have children at this moment of his life (if ever, it’s not necessary that everyone have children!), so I was thinking maybe something related to his family in Hazelhurst? Like a cousin or nephew who runs away from home and come to him for help, either for being gay (or lesbian, or transgender) or for any other reason. That could shake up his life a bit, maybe force him to deal with a part of his past and people he tought he had definitely put behind him. It is really just a tought, feel free to ignore me or do whatever you want with that! I would just really enjoy reading a more important plot about him.

 

 

So courage, keep up your good work and I can’t wait to read the next sequel of this story! :)



Author's Response:

Just found this review, so sorry to have ignored it.  You must have posted it when the review notices werem't working.  I'm so happy to know you enjoyed the story.  If I could go back I would elminate the whole Melanie/school thing.  No one semed to like it but it seemed like a good idea at the time, not so much now.  Kevin is a pretty popular character which I think is great.  The problem with all my story is that there is so many characters that is hard to find time to include them all the story.  I like your idea of a family member coming to Em for help.  I hope to have next installment posted soon.  Thanks for you nice long review and I'm sorry not to have respinded sooner.  BIll

This was perfect, I love it so much how the kids love Grandmon Jen and how she treats them with such love. It’s what kids and grown up kids as well.

 

mel is stupid she calls herself clever....yeah right. Gus is doing a great thing helping other kids and she says what she said and about paying lol she is a twit. 

 

This story just got better and better cannot wait to see what’s next in the sequels. 

 

Incredible wirk xx

Reviewer: vic32 (Signed) · Date: January 14, 2018 12:30 PM · On: Chapter 34

Lol omg that was brilliant Jennifer really let Craig have it with both Barrels didn’t she. I bet he shit his pants after she left his office. I love how much she cares for the family and protects them all.

 

I feel for Justin it’s not fair his so called dad treats him like that he is missing out on an amazing family.

 

poor Joe, his uncle is an ass but I’m so glad he has Debbie and Brian and the gang in his corner, he will go far in like with them by his side. 

 

Fantastic work x

Reviewer: vic32 (Signed) · Date: January 13, 2018 10:35 PM · On: Chapter 33

John and Peter are truly blessed to have Brian and Justin look after them Ron is truly a horrible man and deserves no part in their lives.

Michael is so delusional about Brian and what he thinks Justin did it’s dangerous. I fear he may try something that may end up putting someone in danger. 

Reviewer: vic32 (Signed) · Date: January 13, 2018 10:15 PM · On: Chapter 32

Wow another great chapter lol those mothers could have taken Ron apart couldn’t they. I am looking forward to seeing the outcome from this. 

Reviewer: vic32 (Signed) · Date: January 13, 2018 03:13 PM · On: Chapter 31

I love how the guys are with the boys they truly care and love them and their happiness which is such a powerful thing. 

 

Mel needs a good slap down not a real slap but a hard reality one. She will only lose out big time if she keeps going how she is.

 

so sorry took so long to get back reading this. Fantastic work x

I am enjoying this story so much, and I'm so glad you've continued it.  The characters are so clear and true, but it's the elements of the story that keep me coming back for more.  I can't wait to see what happens next, and I am really looking forward to Brian being surrounded by Mickey, Minnie, Winnie the Pooh, and Tigger too.  Please make that happen! :)  Thank you for writing this.



Author's Response:

Thanks for letting me know you are enjoying my long saga.  I love to hear for the readers so I appreciate you taking time to review.  Hope you continue to enjoy the story.  I am working on the first chapter of the Disney Trip.  Bill

Are you going to follow thru on this series or have you quit writing...which would be so sad...I love this series

I so enjoyed reading Sickness and in Health and Holiday Happenings.  You are a wonderful writer and I really look foward to the Disney story.  Thank you for your stories.  



Author's Response:

Thanks Lori for your really nice comments!!!  I am happy to know you enjoyed my stories.  I am working on the first chapter of the Disney trip.  Thanks for taking time to review, I love hearing from the readers!!!!!!  Bill

Loved it!  It was worth the wait.  I hope Claire does reform.  I am happy that Jenn arranged for Brian and Justin to have time alone.  She sure is a gem!    There is so much much love in this entire family.



Author's Response:

It was a long wait, I am sorry!!!!!!  I think it might be a new experience for Claire for people to appreciate something she does.  She sure didn't get any encouragement from her parents.  There is a lot of love circulating around this family.  Really happy to know you enjoyed this latest update!!!!!!!   Thanks for taking time to review!  Bill

What happened with Brian’s ‘talk’ with Melanie????



Author's Response:

I didn't feel like adding a downer to the last chapter.  I'm sure Justin has a talk with Mel and she realizes she was wring but won't stop her in the future.  Thanks for the review!!  Bill

Sad to see the end - always love catching up in this universe. Kevin is such a sweetheart. I like that Clarie is getting her act together. Most definitely looking forward to Brian at Disney...LOL And I can just imagine the FUN twins are going to bring. Looking forward to the next saga.



Author's Response:

Still have ideas so the saga will continue.  I am always so happy when someone mentions Kevin.  I think he is the favorite of all the original characters I have added.  I am anxious to get to the twins' srrival.  Thanks for all your support for my stories.  I do really love to get reviews!!!!!  Bill

I always love reading this story. I was hoping for an update on Michael's work but maybe later.

  Great ending to the second story in your tale.  I loved the weekend and could envision all the fun things the kids did.  So happy you plan sequels.  Would hate to envision a world without this universe



Author's Response:

Happy you enjoyed the latest update to this long saga.  I hate to think about an end to your Fatherhood universe.  Thanks for the review!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: sophiesmom (Signed) · Date: December 06, 2017 03:44 AM · On: Chapter 35

Nice ending. Gus loves his Grandma Jen.

Looking forward to Brian doing Disney.



Author's Response:

And Grandmom Jen loves her boys.  Hopefully Disney will survive a visit from Brian.  Thanks for all your reviews, I appreciate the support for my stories.  Bill

Reviewer: rulisteningbj (Signed) · Date: December 05, 2017 11:21 PM · On: Chapter 35

What a lovely update.  I had a grandmother like grandma Jen.  Now that I am a grandma/ Nana I have so much fun with my granddaughter.  As grandparents it is so much easier than when I was raising my kids.  Love this time of life.  Can't wait for the Disney trip.  We have everyone in the family saving all their change for a Disney trip.  My granddaughter thinks it is so much fun watching the jar fill up.  

Dee Dee



Author's Response:

Thanks for all the nice comments.  I love the idea of everyone saving their change in the jar and your granddaughter watching the money build up.  That will be a memory she carries through her whole life.  You sound like a fun grandmom!!!  Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: December 05, 2017 10:44 PM · On: Chapter 35

It doesn't matter how long your updates take they are soooo worth it.  This one was really nice with Brian and Justin getting some alone time thanks to Jennifer and Tucker.  What's up with Melanie.  I think if an orbitrator got the case she wouldn't come up smelling roses.  Hope that Ben gets to spend more time with JR, he's pretty much the only one who cares for the little girl.  Like John and Peter's take on their letters.  Hope Claire is changing but I don't see her as being able to be responsible for her sons. 



Author's Response:

My friend I know I have told you before how much I appreciate all the support you have given my saga from the beginning.  You have made it more fun to write.  I thought B&J deserved a weekend of lust & carnal activities.  Claire has a couple fo years of jail time so J&P will be almost adults by the time she gets out.  Nice that she is finding something positive in life.  She is also a victim of Jack & Joan parenting.  I think J&P are happy to think that Claire is being more realistic view of her life.  Thanks again for all your reviews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: Sallyo (Signed) · Date: December 05, 2017 09:41 PM · On: Chapter 35

But what happened with Mel?



Author's Response:

Sorry I was in a good mood and didn't want to think about Mel and her issues.  I'm sure there will be another occasion when she screws up and is confronted by Justin or Brian.  Bill

Reviewer: chadmom63 (Signed) · Date: December 05, 2017 07:06 PM · On: Chapter 35

Great story!

 

I'm looking forward to Disney World and the Twins!

Reviewer: bktush (Signed) · Date: December 05, 2017 06:00 PM · On: Chapter 35

My dear Sweet Baboo, Santa just gave me my Christmas wish--your chapter. I will never understand when Gus does a good thing in helping others, his mothers act like it's a crime. The bit about the tution was just dumb --Brian and Jus foot the bill for everything when it comes to  Gus. Kevin is such a sweetheart and they didn't want the inter-action between them, Brian has grown so much, loving Jus and Gus just opened up his flood gates. Can't wait for the new story. Hope you have a beautiful Christmas with only wonderful things for the coming year. Your Sally forever  



Author's Response:

My Darling Sally, no chapter feels complete to me until I read your review.  Mel & Linds have a unique view of life which seems to not have much basis in reality.  Hopefully Mel's counseling will help her see life as it really is.  If she doesn't straighten up Mother Taylor may have to beat the shit out of her.  I think Brian never knew unconditional love until Gus & Justin appeared in his life, no coincidence it was on the same day.  It was Kismet!!!  I hope you have wonderful holidays and we all have a stupendous 2018!!!   As always, your Sweet Baboo

Reviewer: Happy Gamma (Signed) · Date: December 05, 2017 05:19 PM · On: Chapter 35

Great story.  Hope to read the "Taylor-Kinneys do Disney".  That should be fun seeing how Brian handles Disney with all his "boys" including Justin. 



Author's Response:

Who would ever think that Brian would plan a trip to Disney.  I think all the "boys" will enjoy Disney, although personally I think Disney is kind of a cult.  All that "have a magical day" kind of gets on my nerves.  Lots of people do really love it.  Thanks for the review, I think of reviews as kind of magical!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: emac66 (Signed) · Date: December 05, 2017 05:04 PM · On: Chapter 35

A bittersweet time. Another ending. *sob*. On a high note, I can now put it onto my kindle and re-read it in it's entirety. (again)

Grandma Jen time is always a joy to read about. It's amazing how far so many of these characters have come. Brian from his troubled past to being the amazing man he is here. Jen coming from a protective mom to someone who loves and accepts Brian completely. The cousins who have wonderful loves ahead of them now. 

Mel & Linds seems to have changed very little and apparently the same with Michael. The jury is still out for any hope with those 3. Hopefully we see more of them in future writings. I was kind of expecting a Wasp like smack down of teh girls a la Justin. Perhaps we'll see one at a later date.

The Disney story should be most amusing. Will be intersting to see how Brian is at the magical kingdom. lol. Hopefully he enjoys it as much as the kids will. (Justin is included in the kids there as we all know Justin will be a big kid at Disney. ;) lol )

Loved this!!!!  Congrats on the success of another unbeleivably wonderful part to the series. Definitely one of my all time favorites.

Cheers

Elaine



Author's Response:

Hello my friend, I always feel special when I get a review on a non-Monday.  You are always so supportive and I truly appreciate you.  Glad you approve of the way the charactes in the story have developed.  As you point out some have had no positive development at all.  I think you are correct there will be lots of "kids" for Brian to deal with at Disney.  I think as long as his Sunshine & his Sonny Boy are happy he will be happy as well.  I am happy to know you are still enjoying this long saga of mine.  Thanks you so much for the review, you know I LOVE to get them!!!!!!!!    Cheers back to you,  Bill

The only thing missing from this chapter was the beat down Justin is going to give Mel. I kind of want them to go for custody of Gus based on her inability to learn. I can’t wait for Disney mostly because of the absolute certainty there will be no Michael since he was not invited and he has a job he has to go to poor Cynthia...



Author's Response:

Welcome back, haven't heard from you in a while. I thought about a Mel/Justin encounter but decided to end the story on a high note.  I think you are right about Mikey there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth.   Thanks for the review.  Bill

I read "Silkness and health" and this sequel for now unfinished. I love it, it's really the season 6 that I would have liked! Their lives together, always so in love with just the right anti Michael and Lindsay! I hope you will continue this story I am looking forward to the next chapter and arrival of the babies. Thank you for these two great stories !! Sorry for my english !!

Thank you so much for your review.  I am so happy you enjoyed my stories.  I am working on the next chapter of HH but real ife is not leaving me much time for writing.  I hope you continue to enjoy this long saga!!!!!  Bill

Hi Sweet Baboo,  Been rereading again, and hope Kevin will written in.Like Grandmom Jen is always saying Kevin is just full of love. Brian and Justin, and the rest of the house hold especially Gus has given Kevin a wonderful extended famly who loves and teaches him many things to like Brian teaching him how to kick a scoccer ball, or Gus helping him with his reading and for all the kindness and love they have shown him, Kevin has given back so much love.I missed reading about the child he makes the lessons they have taught him so important and special. Love you, your Sally



Author's Response:

Kevin is in the next chapter for sure.  I am trying my best to get the chapter done.  It will finish Holiday Happening but the sage will go on.  First we will do Disney for Spring break and then time for the twins!!!!!  Always love hearing from you my Darling Sally.  As always, you sweet Baboo

Reviewer: emac66 (Signed) · Date: October 10, 2017 09:32 PM · On: Chapter 34

SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!! I know...so late in reviewing. workign up a shit storm lately and then there was Thanksgiving here and I'm going away on Friday. HAve been terribly busy!!

gotta say...Delores is and idjit! Seriously?? she's trying to take on Jennifer?! What a fool. Never mind the fact she tried to actually lecture Jenn re: how she raised Justin? Again...what an idjit! Glad Jenn told Craig off. I highly doubt he'll take anything she says to heart. He seems to be one of those who blames everyone else, and he's perfectly good. Hope he heeds her warning though. could get nasty for him if he doesn't.

The meeting went as I had expected and hoped. joe gets to stay with dev and Carl thankfully. He's far better off there. What a major dick his uncle was! WOW! Glad Brian was there. He tends to go straight for the jugular when he needs to.

Well done!! so happy to see this and finally have time toread it and review.

cheers,

 



Author's Response:

I understand the work thing.  Been putting on some long hours myself. Delores doesn't realize how Jennifer has grown since she ditched Craig but she found out in a hurry!  Joe will be happy with Deb & carl and the uncle will be happy not having to alter his lifestyle.  Glad you enjoyed this chapter.  Just one more chapter to go for this story. Thanks for the review!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: DavidR (Signed) · Date: October 07, 2017 06:42 PM · On: Chapter 34

“Molly and I love Justin and we love Brian and they love us.” 

    That just about says it all for this chapter.  I guess there will

be no more lunches between Craig and Justin.  At least not

without Brian and Jennifer attending.  Well – we can forget that.

    I find it strange that after all this time Craig is still holding on to

the thinking that Brian corrupted Justin.  Jennifer explained that

to him how false that is.  I’m sure not for the first time.  She also

stated all the things that Brian has done for Justin.  Craig already

knows them.  Maybe, just maybe, that is the issue for Craig. 

Jennifer could have nailed the Craig coffin by added that these

were things Justin’s father should have done, but didn’t.  Could it

be that is reason Craig hates Brian and continues to hold on to

that hate.  Guilt!  Well I think so.

     Terrific chapter.  One joy in reading this story is the

relationship between the characters. 

    Thanks for the chapter and for the wonderful story.

DavidR

 

 



Author's Response:

Hello my friend, as you know I always look forward to your comments.  Seems like you are pretty happy with this chapter.  I think Craig just wants someone to blame so he deosn't have to admit he is the one who fucked up his own life.  Always happy to know you are still reading and enjoying this long story.  Thanks for the review!!!  Bill

Reviewer: tiger062 (Signed) · Date: October 06, 2017 06:13 AM · On: Chapter 34

I adore Jennifer - she soooo put Craig in his place...LOL  Joe's uncle is of concern but at least that's getting sorted - Joe will be happy with Deb and Carl - even if he gets driven up the wall sometimes. As always - enjoy the update.



Author's Response:

Happy to know you enjoyed the latest chapter.  I adore Mother Taylor too, which makes sense since I give her such great scenes.  I agree, I think Joe will be happy.  Every teenager is driven up the wall by their "parents" and vise versa.  Thanks for the review, I do love to get them!!!!!  Bill

Sweet Baboo, Are the babies going to be Christmas or New Years babies? Every child that enters in his circle of friends Brian becomes the sweetest dada and Justin the best papa--I think as Bri gets older Brian knows he has the skill with Jus to be wonderful parents and realizes Lindsay caused him to miss the early years of being with Sonnyboy Your Sally

Love this story and this chapter is brilliant. Brian just does not even realise how often he shows his love and caring for those in his inner circle

So happy to see a new update.  Don't apologize about RL-  my own story seems to get an update once a month.  now on to critique.-  love the last scene where Brian let Joe's uncle know what he would and could do to keep Joe in a place that he wanted to be.  I would think that his uncle would have been happy to spend less money but that is just me.

 

Jennifer- wow- what a power house-  lvoed how she stood up to Craig's secretary and all the things she told Craig she would do..  I really like that Brian called her to sic on Craig, keeping his promise to Justin but still giving Craig what for.

 

I so love this universe and hope that you don't lose interest in updating the story.

Author's Response:

I think Joe's uncle was on a power trip and didn't like Joe not going along with his plan.  I think Jennifer had a great time letting Craig and his assistant what she really thoguht about them.  Brian knew that Mother Taylor could handle the situation.  Glad you are still enjoying this story.  Thanks for taking time to review!!!!    Bill

 My Sweet Baboo, Jennifer certainly chewed Craig a new asshole. Craig blames everyone else for his failers but himself maybe he and fuckwad (mikey) are related! I liked how Peter helped Justin get organized and told him how his dad didn't know what a good person Jus was. Joe's uncle was certainly a piece of work and seemed homo-phobic and Brian used his ability to screw with his mind,  mikey was concerned who was paying for the refreshments as if he was concerned about his mother--Brian takes care of  people he  loves and about underdogs who need help, Gus has really watched and has learned from his dad and Jus in the way he worried about Joe having a place to stay and food to eat and even told his dad to give him alot less for Christmas and to spend on Joe instead....Brian is the father that he deserved to have instead of Jack. Love you your Sally  



Author's Response:

Darling Sally, I think Jennifer enjoyed taking on Craig for his behavior.  If he knows what good for him, Carig will avoid angering her again or he may end up losing body parts instead of getting new ones,  Peter loves Unlce Justin who has been so good to him and his brother.  Uncle Justin has taken him on business lunches and to San Francisco as well as fostering his friendship with Josh.  We have to wonder if Brian would have been more open in his caring for people if he had a better home life instead of hell on earth with Jack & Joan.  Happy to know you enjoyed this latest update.  Thanks for the review, you know I love to hear from the readers!!!!!!!!!! 

As Always, your Sweet Baboo, Bill

I did s happy dance when I saw this update.  Good thing no one was around to see that.  Jennifer did a fantastic job handling Craig.  Then Brian did a great job handling Joe's uncle.  So glad Joe gets to stay with Deb and Carl.   Wonderful update.

Got to hand it to Brian and Jenn. He knew directly who to go to and she handle Craig like a flimsy dishrag. I hope he stays out of their lives otherwise Jenn will go for his jugular.

Now Joe's, is concern just floors me. If he wants a better school for Joe so he can have a "better life", why hadn't he try to convince Joe's mother to send him when he was younger? What money would he get from the mother's estate if Joe wasn't around? He still needs to pay for Joe's schooling so what's his problem other than Joe might be gay which would probably be an embarrassment to him.

Nice of Peter to help Justin.



Author's Response:

Craig would be a fool to cross Jennifer.  Joe's uncle just seems to be a really sefl centered man who isn't at all interested in his nephew.  He may regret that in years to come.  The uncle isn't really paying for anything.  The money for Joe comes from his mother's estate.  Peter really loves his Uncle Justin!  Thanks for the reviews, always happy to see your comments!!!   Bill

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: October 02, 2017 02:31 PM · On: Chapter 34

I get the feeling that Craig will really have a reason to blame Brian for ruining his life.  He needs phsyciatric help if you ask me.  Looks like Brian has come to the conclusion that his life is so much better thanks to Justin.  We've known it for quite awhile.  He's helped his nephews, who are thankful and now he's helped Joe to get a life that he'd want rather then something his uncle planned for.  Another wonderful chapter!!!



Author's Response:

My friend, you have been with me since the beginning.  Always supporting my efforts and I truly appreciate you!!!!!!  Always happy to see your comments and really happy you are still enjoying this long saga.  If Craig angers Jennifer he better see if he can get into the witness protection program because he will need to get out of town and assume a new identity.  Justin unlocked Brian's blocked emotions.  He always cared about the important people in his life, but had trouble expressing how he felt.  Thanks for your always kind comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Bill

Reviewer: DavidR (Signed) · Date: August 24, 2017 02:56 AM · On: Chapter 33

Nice chapter.  There is so much going on. I had written before

about Craig and here it is from Justin:

          “I have a mother and a sister who I love and who love me. 

          Brian's son, Gus, loves me as a second father. We have        

          custody of Brian's nephews who are two fine young boys

         and in a few months Brian and I will welcome twins. 

         I have a full and satisfying life without you.”

Yep, Craig has become irrelevant.  And as I see it, so has Michel. 

Sadly, Michael is an ignorant fool.  He is really terrible uneducated as to how this world works.  He has no idea about the

different between earning something and being given (or taking it).

     I am not sure about Ron.  Did he really think he was coming to

rescue his sons?  I don’t know.

    Again, thanks for the chapter and story. I do enjoy reading

it/them.

Author's Response:

Craig wants reality to be the way he choses to remember rather than actual facts.  I think some people really do that.  Unlucky for Craig Justin knows what really happened and who wrecked their relationship and it was Craig who did it!  I think you hate when I say this but Miket is clueless, somewhat like Craig he wants things to be the way he wants or remembers rather than the way things really are.  I do think Ron thought the boys would be happy to see him.  I had a cousin whose father deserted him when he was very young and when they reconnected as adults the father had all sorts of stupid excuses for what he did and professed really missing my cousin.  People have great powers fo rationalization and are able to rewrite history to be what they want.  I enjoy reading your comments and they often give me food for thought.  Thanks for being such a faithful reviewer, I truly appreciate you!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: emac66 (Signed) · Date: August 23, 2017 07:53 PM · On: Chapter 33

I know...I know. So late in reviewing this. ;)

Brian handled Peter and John well, given his obvious discomfort at talking anything close to being anything remotely considered emotional. lol. The boys have nothing to fear. Brian and Justin dealt with 

Oh Michael. Not a good start to the first day. Late, petulant, presumptive...the list is (and will become even more so) endless. My jaw pretty much hit the floor when he thought he should have a percentage of the business, wondering why Ted would. I mean holy shitballs! like I said...presumptive. Where the hell does this entitlement come from? then running to "Ma" about his theory about Justin. Honestly. If Roxanne starts talking to Cynthia and the boys about Michael's attitude and behaviour, he's not going to last long. I can see Mel keeping her mouth shut about what he's attempting to accomplish either. She definitely has ther bitch moments, but I think she'll nip any plan Michael has in the bud and set him straight. At least I hope she does. Deb seems to be giving a heads up anyway so it may not even come to that. I get the feeling though that Michael may no listen to her. Either way, B&J are forwarned. Justin is correct in saying that no matter what Brian tries to say or explain to Michael, it will just fall on deaf ears.

Lunch with Craig went as we all assumed. Craig is looking for anywhere else to place blame on the destruction of his and Justin's relationship, and on Justin being gay. Not sure he's ever going to really get it, and until he does, he won't have any relationship at all with his son or his family. Sad really. I don't feel sorry for him. He's done it to himself. It's just sad that a parent can have such demands and restrictions on their child. He's going to grow to to become a very bitter and lonely old mad if he doesn't shape up.

Kind of glad that it took a while for the update. RL has been a shit show for me adn haven't really had time to do much reading let alone reviewing. I've spent the past 2 weeks re reading some fics just because I'd missed so many updates. Not that that's a bad thing, but at least with this one I knew where it left off. ;)

brilliant as usual. It really is one of my favorites.

Hope life is going for you. That RL is giving you any kind of ass kicking.

Cheers,

Elaine

Hi Elaine, after how long it took me to post this update I would never say anything abotu how long it took you to revew.  Always look forward to your comments!!!!!  I think John & Peter are starting to really believe that J&B have their backs and will take care fo any issues that arise.  Mikey is an idiot but Cynthia may just whip hm into shape.  She is sure not going to take any BS from him.  Craig is clueless and wants to rewrite hsitory.  Hope RL starts reating you better.  You are always so kind with your comments and inflate my ego.  Cheers nack to you, Bill

Great chapter-  never will understand Michael, but I dislike him anyway-  but really - he thinks Brian needs his help to take back part of his own company-  really ?-  this is not some stranger that Brian has lost his company to, but his partner- Michael will never grow up.  Love the way you handled Ron-  he's another one who is a jerk-  And Craig- what a loser-  this chapter should have been labeled The Losers- m (bg)  anyway, I totally understand the whole RL thing-  I'm good to get a chapter a month out these days.  Still loving the story.



Author's Response:

Thanks for taking the time to review, always great to hear from you.  Mikey is Mikey, his idiocy is something we can always count on in an ever changing world.  Ron is a fool to think the sons he abandoned would be happy to see him after years of neglect.  Craig needs to realize he is the problem in his realtionship with Justin.  Happy to know you enjoyed this chapter.  Bill

Hi Sweet Baboo,mikey is like Trump, when someone says "can he get dumber" they both take it as a personal challenge and rise to the ocassion.Why in the world would he go to Mel, she knows Brian and Justin will always take care of Gus, and Jenny too.I'm totally surprise he didn't say Linz, both of their hamsters have been on life support for years, I think Peter and John's dad has given up he knows the boys love Brian and Justin and that in court he knew he couldn't win. As for Craig, he didn't want to work it out with Justin, he just wants to bad mouth Brian. He didn't seem surprised they have twins due soon, can't remember if he was told or maybe Molly mentioned it, but fat chance Brian and Justin will want him near the babies. same old same old mikey is a dumb-ass, Debbie always butts in, and Ted and Cynthia always looks after B & J, and so does Em. Can we please get mikey fired and give Cynthia a purplr heart. your loving and sarcastic Sally



Author's Response:

Darling Sally, always my pleasure to read your comments.  You spurred me on to get this chapter posted.  Not sure even Mikey as as bad at DJT.  I don't Mikey has much chance of getting anyone to help him "win back" Kinnetik for Brian.  Even Debbie realizes Michael is not seeing reality.  Ron knew he couldn't win and took the best offer he could get, a quick trip back to Alaska.  Carig is blinde to what a good life Justin has; he still wants to find a villain when he is the reason he is alone in the world.  I do think that Michael will always come out as the "injured party" in any confrontation with Cynthia.  Thanks for the review.  I reamain, as always, you Sweet Baboo!!

Michael can't keep his mouth shut. I think he can do real damage to Kinnetik so he has to be let go.



Author's Response:

Thanks so much for your nice comments.  I am really happy to know you are enjoying my long saga.  Michael is is going to require some careful watching for sure.  I love to get reviews so think you for taking time to post one.  Hope you continue to enjoy the story!!!   Bill

I'm surprised that Michael lasted a day - anywhere else he would have been fired or at the very least hauled into an office and cautioned strongly. Michael being Michael he has some serious ass kicking coming his way and I can't wait...idiot... Hopefully Ron will stay in Alaska and try to build a relationship with the boys via letters or just forget the whole thing and leave them alone - beginning a relationship and not continuing would hurt them more in the long run. Craig just needs to get a clue.  Looking forward to more.



Author's Response:

Mikey never disappoints, he always does something stupid.  Cynthia is going to have her hands full with him but maybe it will be good for him.  Maybe we will see a whole new Michael emerge.  Doubtful!!!  Ron was at least smart enough to know he had no chance of overturning B&J's custody of the boys.  Craig is almost as clueless as Mikey.  Justin is so happy with his life but Craig can't see that.  Thanks for the review, you know I love to get them!!!  Bill

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: August 19, 2017 02:44 AM · On: Chapter 33

Hallaluha, John and Peter's dad is going back to Alaska alone.  Michael on the other hand may be out of a job if he keeps trying to break Justin from being a partner in Kinnitek.  So stupid, but enjoyable.



Author's Response:

B&J didn't leave Ron much choice.  Stay in Pittsburgh and lose everything you own and still not get custody of John & Peter or have a quick trip back to Alaska on a plane.  We do enjoy hating our Mikey!!!!!  Thanks for your continuing support!!!!   Bill

Reviewer: Mychad (Signed) · Date: August 18, 2017 07:22 PM · On: Chapter 33

Oh, and I agree with bksbracelet that the conversation with Craig wasn't a mistake or a waste of time. On the contrary, it was a conversation long overdue and Justin is atthe perfect place in is life to have it now. I believe it can give him a sense of closure that he probably needed. I hope he will realize that...



Author's Response:

I think Justin knows that Craig is the problem and he won't spend a lot of time regretting trying to reconcile one more time.  Brian will find a way to distract him from thinking about his homophobe sperm donor.  Bill 

Reviewer: Mychad (Signed) · Date: August 18, 2017 07:15 PM · On: Chapter 33

Wow, I was so happy to have the beautiful surprise of a new update today (although I never doubt you would update eventually)! I was really looking forward to that particular chapter and I wasn't disappointed!

A lot of things had been resolve in that chapter, at least for the time being... I liked how the conversation went with Ron. He can be homophobic and thick-headed, but he's not a complete idiot after all. He can perfectly see that continuing with this attitude would lead him nowhere. I'm curious to see if he will write, I'm not sure how much his desire to reconnect with his sons is genuine and profond enough for him to really put the necessary efforts into it.

Regarding Craig, I can't believe that he tried to reconnect with Justin with so little change of attitude! I like the way Justin reacted to the situation. He really had been the "bigger man" about this, keeping his calm while putting Craig in front of his actions and twisted views of reality. And not prolong this more than necessary. That's true what he said about Craig being a lonely and miserable man. I wished this had been enough to make him question himself more, but apparently not... That's really his loss, he will stay alone and not have any chance of knowing his grandchildren. I wonder if it's all over or if we'll see him do another move eventually (but after this, I guess it's unlikely he would have another chance).

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the conclusion of this part of the story, that I sense is coming, and to the following ones. I really like this universe that you created.



Author's Response:

Thank you so much for your really nice comments.  I am sorry I made you wait so long for this update.  I have started a new job that has some really long hours, so if I was home and had time to wirte I was too tired to do it.  Ron does at least understand economics, he really had no options other than to return to Alaska before he lost everything.  Craig is a butthead and can't stop blaming Brian for all his troubles.  That is exactly the wrong approach to take with Justin who loves Brian so much.  Craig better be careful not to get Jennifer angry at him.  If she goes into protect her boys mode he may have to leave town and assume a new identity.  You are correct about this story winding down.  I see two more chapters, 35 seems a good place to stop, before we have a quick spring trip to Disney followed by............. THE TWINS!  I like this universe also so I think it will continue for quite a while.  Thanks for your support, I really appreciate it!!!!!!!!!!   Bill

I don't think it was a mistake.  Justin was finally able to speak to his father as an adult and carefully explained to him what truly caused the estrangment was due to Craig not accepting that he had a gay son. You also had Justin tell Craig exactly what he was going to miss out on (all the grandchildren, etc.).  That is not wasted time.

I think it was an almost lunch that Craig won't forget anytime soon.  Seems like Craig & Mikey live in their own realities.  Glad to know you enjoyed this chapter.  Always enjoy reading your comments and you know I LOVE reviews.  Thanks,  Bill

Reviewer: DavidR (Signed) · Date: July 21, 2017 11:58 PM · On: Chapter 32

    I give Michael a pass.  All those many years as Brian’s best

friend has given him an air of entitlement.  I am not saying it’s

right, but to me it is understandable.  It has got to stop, and I

hope Michael will learn but it is not going to be easy.  Can he

actually do the job?  It is not a job with much future or that

people think highly of.   Can he handle it when Justin shows up,

who we all know is an owner?  What about meetings between

Ted and Brian?  Michael needs to stay at his reception desk and

do his job.  This is not Woodies. I understand the issue and the

difficulty it is for Michael.  But…. he just got to do it.

    I am now more confused than ever about Ron.  Just what does

he want?.  If it turns out that he wants money.  In effect, sell his

kids.  I don’t think either Brain or Justin will give it to him. Now

what?  Ofcourse my confusion is that I do believe that if he could

have gotten his kids in the car, he would have taken them to his

home.  So it is just not money but labor. 

   Anyway, thanks for the chapter.  As simple as it may appear.

there is so much going on.

Author's Response:

Mikey has just never moved past high scgool.  He thinks his relationship with Brian should remain static and that never happens in life.  I have a friend I've known since second grade but our friendship has chnaged many times over the years.  You have been peeking into my mind with some of your questions.  I agree it will be difficult for Mikey to understand that work is work and not the same as getting together at Woody's or Babylon.  Ron is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.  He owes years of back support and has no money to hire a lawyer to challenge the custody agreement.  The final nail in his custody coffin is that John & Peter want to stay where they are.  Thanks for the commenst I always look forward to your reviews!!!  Bill

Hi, my friend - I am SO behind in catching up on so many things, but I needed to stop and at least comment on your latest chapter. I always eagerly anticipate each one. 

I'm glad that Bill was observant and was able to warn Justin about the boys' father.  Really liked how the administration at the school stood up to Townsend, too, and those two ladies with the purses - hysterical!  I was wondering if Justin might flinch or have some reaction to the baseball bat, but I'm glad he didn't pay it any mind.

Michael...sigh...he just doesn't get it. But I think he will find that he won't gain any ground with his constant 'but I'm his best friend!' approach, especially with Cynthia - ha!  Love her character!

As always, I adore all the details in your story, and how this one, big family - related or not - rally together to stand up and support each other.  I think that is wonderful, just like this story.

Always looking forward to the next part, Bill. Thank you. :)  ~Kim



Author's Response:

Hi Kim, glad you enjoyed this latest chapter in my very long saga.  I did enjoy writing about the battling Moms taking on Ron and his cousin.  I think Mikey is going to have a tough time working with Cynthia.  She is all set to deak with him.  I agree that the "family" look out for each other.  Thanks for your kind comments!!!  Bill

Reviewer: Lorma (Signed) · Date: July 13, 2017 02:49 PM · On: Chapter 32

Ron is a loser and a homophobe.

I guess everyone was worried for nothing.  Brian's reaction to the meeting with Ron turned out ok.  Justin knows exactly how to handle him.  I was chuckling when the moms took Ron and his cousin down.

 



Author's Response:

I agree with you about Ron.  I think Brian just wants to be rid of Ron and make sure he stops harrassing people Brian cares about.  If Ron has any brain cells working he needs to just head back to Alaska but his brainpower is questionable.  Thanks for the review, I LOVE to get them!!!!!   Bill

Reviewer: emac66 (Signed) · Date: July 11, 2017 04:02 PM · On: Chapter 32

HA! the moms were FABULOUS! Loved that part! I was admittedly on tender hooks when the dark car was first noticed, when Ron confronted the principal and when those men came out of nowhere to get the boys, but man o man....they sure got it good! NEVER piss off a protective mom! Just shows that wel'll stop at nothing to look after our kids!

And Michael...well, that boy is going to learn some hard facts of life working at Kinnetik. He really and truly thinks that he'll be able to do what he wants. If that continues, his emplymentwill be very short lived! You do not mess with Brian's business!!!! Cynthia definitely hsa her hands full with him. I'm betting she's going to demand a MAJOR bonus. I certainly would!

I'm very curious as to how this meeting with Ron is going to turn out. No idea what to expect. Definitely looking forward to it though. He's obviously out for $$, which he obviously isn't going to get, not the free labor he's assuming to get from teh boys bck in Alaska. Yup...this is definitely going to be interesting!

wonderful chapter!!

I was a little worried when there was no Monday review.  I hope they are not keeping you so busy at work that you have no time to read stories, those slavedrivers!  Made me smile when I wrote abut the Mom possee taking on Ron and his cousin.  I like that they took care of business but than just returned to their cars and carried on business as usual!  I think Cynthia can handle Mikey and may enjoy it since he has annoyed her for years.  Mikey has burned so many bridges he is going to have no one to turn to when Cynthia lays down the law.  I think Ron will be disappointed that John and Peter have no interest in being with him.  Always look forward to your reviews!!    Bill

Really glad to have the surprise to find an update on your story today! This was a promising chapter, we can expect some really interesting "encounters of the third kind" in the next chapter! I can't wait for your next update...

By the way, that was great to hear about your plans for the future stories (in your answer for a previous comment). I really like your idea of doing a short story about the infamous Disney trip (this will certainly give us some interesting moments!) before jumping to the twins birth. Those little jumps in time are pertinent sometimes to keep the story going on. That's so great to read a wip and have the feeling that we can trust the author to keep up with his story! Thanks for it :)



Author's Response:

I'm really glad you enjoyed this chapter.  I hope the next chapter will be interesting, there promises to be some interesting encounters.  I do have plans to keep this saga going forward.  RL is keeping my updates from being as frequent as I like but I still have lots of ideas for this story.  Thanks for the review, I do love to get them!!!!!!!!  Bill

  Another great chapter and loved so many parts.  I really liked how the moms got out and defended the boys from Ron and the cousin.   The conversation at the school with the principal was great too.  Happy that Brian did not get mad about the meeting.

 

Now for Mikey,  ugh.  I know he is going to screw up big time and I bet its going to be in front of one of Brian's clients-  just my prediction-  Mikey is so not a grown up.  Great update and thanks for keeping yur readers entertained.



Author's Response:

I could just see the expression on Ron and his cousin'a faces as the three women advanced on them.  They were no match for the tiger moms.  Ron is not making any freinds during his stay in the Steel City.  We all know Mikey is never going to be employee of the month at Kinnetik but Cynthia may be more than a match for him.  Time will tell.  Thank you for th nice comments, you know I do love reviews!!!!!!!   Bill

My Sweet Baboo, Thought it was so funny that three women could take down Ron and his moron cousin while they were jumping out of bushes to grab John and Peter. I agree with Brian it would have been great if someone had taped it, it also would show a lawyer or the courts that Ron was unfit as a parent-no contact, no support and now he wants to be their father, its too late for that, he should have thought of that ten or twelve years ago. Still loving this story, I hope Joe gets to stay with Deb and Carl the boy has been thru to much and needs the love of a family. Love ya Sally



Author's Response:

Darling Sally, it always make me happy to see your review!!!!  Ron and his cousin are pretty clueless.  Ron should have known that the Washington Avademy is not going to be a good place for him to approach the boys.  I don't think they need any help showing what a poor parent Ron has been.  It also helps that he has not money to hire a decent attorney.  I don't think there is mch chance of John & Peter moving to Alaska.  I'm glad you are still enjoying this long saga!!!  I imagine Joe's uncle will be happy to have someone take care of his nephew.  As always I remain, your sweet Baboo!!!

The mothers were awesome, great call with the purse. I once hit someone with my purse , they needed stitches. Michael needs to be a strike system. One strike every time he tries to see Brian, three strikes he loses pay ,three times without pay he loses his job.

Author's Response:

I kaughed at your purse story!!!!!  Those Mom were determined to stop any child napping on their watch.  I'm sure Cynthia will find a way to illustrate to Mikey the wrror of his ways.  Thanks for taking tiem to review!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Please don't keep us waiting too long to see what Michael screws up next as well as how Justin and Brian 'deal' with the boys biological father.



Author's Response:

I am intrigued by your member name, I have spent some time with Acadians gone South, the Cajuns.  I know that when the lobsters followed Acadians when they loved to the south it was such a rough journey that by the time the lobsters arrived they had lost a lot of size and were now crayfish.  I will try and update soon.  Thanks for your review.  I love to hear from the readers!!!!!!!  Bill

I love how Brian and Justin manage their lives and that of the people they love. It's funny watching the boys see how Justin deals with Brian it gives them security

Author's Response:

I think the uncles are fascinatng to John & Peter.  They have never witnessed such a close partnership and so much love.  B&J do try and keep the people they love happy.  I am happy to know you are still enjoying this story.  I can hardly believe how long this has been going on.  I never would have guessed it would last all this time.  Thanks for your support, I always look forward to reading your comments.  Bill

Wow!   One day after the holidays and the adventures begin.  John and Peter won't have to worry about their DNA contributor if I know you.  Now Mikey, on the other hand might have problems with his new job.  Being a friendly receptionist just isn't his speed.  I'm missing Gus!  Your next chapter with Deb's meeting and Brian and Justin meeting with Townsend ought to be fun.  Especially when you throw Michael into the mix.  I can just hear him now.  "Maaww!  I'm your son."  and "Briiiian, you need to give those kids to their dad and get them out of your hair."  Where's a purse when you need it.  Love the mother's at the Academy coming to Justin's defense.  Made my day!



Author's Response:

My friend, always makes my day to see your review.  You have been with me since this all started, thank youso much!!!  I hope to see you story come back soon and have done my best to comply with your request for a new chapter on this story.  That spurred me to get this posted!!!!  There is a little chance of John & Peter going North to Alaska.  Don't forget aout Justin & Craig's lunch, the next chapter should have some fun moments!  Mikey is unchanging but Cynthia is going to a new experience for him!  Those Moms were prepared and got the situation under control in record time.  I have lifted some heavy purses in my life, some should have been registered as lethal weapons.  I have often wondered just what was in some of those purses.  Glad yu enjoyed this chapter, as usual I have enjoyed reading your review.  Thanks!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

I would love to know what was in the handbag - go mums... Somehow I can't see Michael lasting very long and Ron has no idea the hornets nest coming his way - Brian protects those he loves.



Author's Response:

I have sometimes wondered just what women have in their purses when I have tried to lift them or help them outside dressing rooms!  Ron and Mikey are both pretty clueless.  They are both heading for storms courtsy of Cynthia, Brian & Justin.  Thanks for the review!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: DavidR (Signed) · Date: July 03, 2017 03:16 AM · On: Chapter 31

    I have been away for awhile and coming home to several new

chapters was really good. I did catch up on the reading, and sure

did enjoy it.  It looks like for the most part, the holiday season so

far has been fun and joyful.  Ok ok, not Michael, but even Mel and

Brian seem to have come to an understanding. 

   So I have one problem.  I don’t think Brian should have offered

Michael a job at Kennetik.  You know the expression, ‘you don’t

sh!t where you eat”.  Well that applies here.  Just about

everything good can be trace back to Kennetik.  No need to say

anymore.  I just think that it is a mistake.

   Anyway, thanks for the chapters.  All and all, it has been a very

good holiday period for J & B and friends and family.

Author's Response:

I'm so sorry for not replying sooner.  Somehow I missed this review.  Nice to hear from you, I wondered where you had been.   I agree it is NOT a food idea for Mikey to work at Kinnetik.  Brian just wanted Debbie to stop crying.  Cynthia is going to make Brian good & sorry for weakening and offering Mikey the receptionist job.  Glad you enjoyed the holidays with the Taylor-Kinney household.  Happy to see your comments, I always enjoy reading your honest appraisals!!! Bill

John and Peter know our boys well. LOL. Brian going off the "help" justin. Yup...OK. John and Peter were so incredibly sweet with Justin. Justin being the emotional little"twat" that he is of course reacted. Brian's reaction was kinda sorta sweet too. I was a bit quick to judge him for assuming the worst of the boys, but I also understand where he's coming from. always on Justin's side and the fact that he was in tears after talking to the boys. all worked out.

as for Mel, for all the truths that have been put to her, you'd think she'd get a clue. Will Jen finally be the one for it to stick? I keep thinking that finally she's going to get it, but then nope...she starts up again with someone else, hoping that they will comiserate with her or show her some sympathy. She most definitely won't get that from Jen. Hopefully, she'll not just take the number for a counsellor but actually call. she needs some real help in this case. She needs to realize that she and Lindsey brought all their troubles onto themselves. she can't complain about not having control when she's never had it before. Her prior choices and decisions were obviously porrly done, so what makes her think they'd be any better now? I seem to be ever hopeful, but she continues to disappoint.

Brian had wise words re: Craig. He does need to be cautious. adn I totally agree...no telling him about the kids! Craig needs to earn trust. Not sure where this is going to go. Not holdign my breath, but I know Justin really wants Craig to come around one day.

Sorry so late. I know you posted a bit ago, but have been stupid busy. Caught up on most of my reviews today and boy...there were a  lot of them!

Always such a joy to read adn update on this one. I know I say that a lot, but it's always true. when I get the notification it always makes me a smile!

Cheers,

Elaine



Author's Response:

Hi Elaine,   I think John & Peter have been around enough to know what is really going on with B&J.  Brian is ALWAYS looking to protect his Sunshine because he couldn't that one time.  I think Mel may be sseing the light.  Ted and Jen gave her a similar message and I believe Mel does love Gus so she doesn't want to hurt him.  I think lunch with Craig wil be interesting.  I am happy to hear fromyou whenever you get time to post reviews!!!!!  Glad you are still enjoying this long saga and thanks for all your review, you know how much I like to get them!!!!!!!!   Bill

This chapter made me feel so happy.  Justin and Brian are so cute together.  I'm hoping Melanie is coming around.  Jen is awesome.



Author's Response:

I am happy to know you enjoyed this chapter.  I think Mel is starting t0 see the light.  Jen is always looking out for her boys!  Tanks for the review!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: Mychad (Signed) · Date: June 17, 2017 04:19 AM · On: Chapter 31

Thank you for updating, this was a really great chapter!  I love when you include a lot of dialogues in your story like this. I think you have a real talent for it and it give so much life to the characters and dynamism to the story.


I especially liked the lesson about love given by Jennifer. I like that she kept calm and compassionate while also making her point. Sometimes, Melanie can be so competitive, especially when she feels she's loosing control, that it took over her judgment. It will be interesting to see her going to counseling, she really had a difficult year so that's not surprising to see her unresolved issues come out like this.


That's good that you mentionned Ron Townsend, I was wondering about that. I don't feel either that this storyline is quite finished... And I can't wait for this lunch between Craig and Justin. Craig is hovering since a while and I'm curious about his motives, but a little apprehensive (Sincere or not? Reconciliation or trouble?).


Can't wait for your next update! 



Author's Response:

Happy to know you enjoyed this chapter.  I really appreciate your comments about dialogue in the story.  I sometimes feel that the conversations I include go on too long, so I was happy it hear that you enjoy them.  That is the great thing about reviews, you get to find out what works for the readers.  I really enjoyed writing this chapter.  I like to walk and often work out my storylines during my walks.  That is how I came up with the Melanie/Jennifer conversation.  I do the back & forth dialogue in my head, try some variations and when I get home write down the one I like best.  That is probably TMI but you brought it up.  I do have some loose ends that I need to wrap up in this story before I end it.  I was hoping to end it at 30 chapters but looks more like 35 now.

Next will be a quick story about the Disney Trip that B&J gave for Christmas and then BABY TIME!  That is why I have to tie up the loose ends because we are going to leap forward in time by several months.  Thanks so much for your review, I love to hear from the readers!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: bktush (Signed) · Date: June 15, 2017 07:54 AM · On: Chapter 31

Hello My Sweet Baboo, This chapter was really great--I know Mel has a problem with being in control and that's fine because of all the problems she and Linz have had, but if she really loves Gus maybe she will heed Jen's advice. Gus loves his daddy and that won't change and he needs for Mel to stop this trash talking in front of Gus. Mel needs to remember Gus loves her too, it is not a contest. The boys have truly given a great deal of help to the family Brian didn't do it to take control of their lives  he did it  because he loves Gus and Gus deserves all the love he can get and that includes his mommies getting along. I think Brian admires Mel as a strong and intelligent woman. I hope Mel gets some help I think she is a little beaten from all trials she has had with Linz. As always, your loving Sally



Author's Response:

Darling Sally, so happy you enjoyed this chapter.  I think Mel is atarting to realize she need help after hearing from Ted & Jennifer.  You are right abut B&J they provided their help for Gus, so he was happy & secure.  They could have fought for custody but Gus loves his Mommy & Mama so B&J didn't want a lot of hard feelings to make life difficult for Gus.  Always wait to read yur review, love hearing from you!!  I remain, your sweet Baboo

Reviewer: sfscarlet (Signed) · Date: June 15, 2017 03:16 AM · On: Chapter 31

Another great chapter.  I'm glad Melanie is considering counseling and I hope she gets help.  Meanwhile I love that Jen defends Brian and keeps telling everyone how great they are.  The one upmanship regarding best father conversation as fun to read and both of them have something to bring to fatherhood.  I know they will both make great fathers.



Author's Response:

Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed the latest chapter.  I don't think Mel realized she wasn't dealing well with all the issues of the last year.  Jennifer is always looking out for her boys.  I agree I think B&J will be great fathers for their twins.  I am looking forward to the next chapter of "Fatherhood".  I appreciate you taking time to post a review!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: June 14, 2017 05:07 PM · On: Chapter 31

Fantastic chapter.  We learn that Melanie is getting a clue and that Jennifer needed counseling.  Then you have Craig wanting lunch, hopefully Justin won't need counseling afterwards.   There's a lot of one-on-one time for Brian and Justin, but then there always were but there was too much other stuff going on to devote any time to showing it.  Gus and the twins will have so much love from Jennifer, John and Peter that I see just as much alone time in their future.



Author's Response:

Hello my friend, always happy to see your comments!!!  So many writers are grateful for all your supportive reviews!!!!!!  You are right Mel is starting to get a clue that she is not always right.  Wasn't a shock with all that Jennifer had going on in her life that she might need some help dealing with it all.  I agree that there will be lots of babysitters in hand for the twins.  Thanks for the review!!!!!!   Bill

Another incredible chapter. This house is so full of love which I love. Brian and the boys need this as well as Justin but Justin knew love before they didn't sadly. I'm so happy yet another person has told Mel off on how she is acting. I honestly believe that Gus needs to be away from her because she won't change no matter what help she gets, she is to stubborn. Gus is such an amazing young boy who's love is genuine. John and Peter are so lucky to have the uncles and the new babies will be blessed. 

 

Craig better not mess things up or Brian will be after blood.

 

Fantastic work 💕💕💕

 

cannot wait for more and more xxxx



Author's Response:

Hello my friend, thanks for all your comments.  I am really happy to know you continue to enjoy this story.  Mel sure gots some words of wisdom from Jennifer.  Gus has always gotten a lot love and he has responded with lots of love.  I believe John & Peter know how lucky they are to be living with B&J.  You are right about Brian if Craig causes Justin to feel hurt again.  Thanks for the review, I do love to get them!!!!!!!  Bill

You write extremely nicely and stay in my opinion well in character even though the storyline itself presents for example Brian in a whole different light.  I hope my writing makes sence to you :-).

I really enjoy reading your story, so thank you for posting and updating it.

Nooooooo I need more please add more soon, I beg you. 

 

Mel needed to hear some home truths and her actions have concaqences I pray Juatin and Brian get custody of Gus.

 

The boys are really thriving at Brian and Justins house and I pray it stays that way. Jennifer and Tucker are great as well and I'm loving seeing all they get up to as a family. There is so much love and goodness here that I'm sure it will help others. 

 

Please write more soon, I need to know are the twins growing ok? What is Ron up to snd Will Justin snd Brian get Gus and will Joan become more in their life.

This was brilliant, I loved hearing what everyone was wearing and out to have a great time. It's so great to see all the friends out together having fun. 

 

I'm so glad that someone else told Mel off on her behaviour she really needs to be shut up. I really do hope Justin does all he told her he would.

 

I am so happy Joe had such a great time, I don't want him to leave.

 

Michael better not screw up his chance, he is very lucky yo have friends like he does if he messes up it will be the end for him. 

 

I am am loving this I don't want it to end xx

Sounds like it was a wild night at Babylon with all B&J's friends entering into the spirit od the occasion.  Vlake is not about to let anyone give Ted a bad time.  I think Michael is going to be in shock when he starts to work for Cynthia.  You are so nice with all you comment.  Thanks for taking time to post all your reviews!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: vic32 (Signed) · Date: June 13, 2017 12:53 PM · On: Chapter 28

I truly hope that Justin follows through with what he seaid to Mel and Brian better back him up. Her behaviour has gone on long enough so it's time to get Gus outta there and to live with his dad's. She needs to know her actions caused this.

 

Gus is wonderful and I'm sure he will make sure that Joe is made feel welcome as will all the other kids. He is hopefully joining this family for good.

 

Brilliant work x

I think Melanie is going to find out that a lot of people think she is wrong.  Gus is a great kid, he does really enjoy spending time with his Daddy & Papa.  Your reviews are really puttig a big smile on my face!!!!  Thanks,  Bill

Grrrr Ron really is an ass isn't he. How can he even think the boys would want to live with him. I'm so happy that the community is behind them, I feel they will need all the support they can get. I was so happy to see that Joan is on their side, I hope that they invite her to the New Years party. 

 

Lol Joe going to live with Debbjd will be amazing I hope he gets to stay for good.

I pray Joe ends up living with either Debbie or the boys, he needs a loving home not a boarding school. 

 

I love the the kids and they just love life don't they. I'm glad that Justin pulled rank with Lindsey he is doing what the kids wants and that is a good thing in this case.

 

OMG that Ron better not get those boys they are happy with Brian and Juatin. I bet he will be sorry he even tried with Brian in doing this. I'm so nervous as to what is gonna happen now, plzzzzz help them stay.

 

Incredible work xx

Debbie does that extra bedroom...  we'll have to wait and see what happens.  Justin has no problem saying what he is feels is right.  I don't think there is much chnace of Brian & Justin letting the nephews be carted off to Alaska.  Thanks for the review, you are incredible!!!!   BIll

Oooooh the snow and the snuggled where just so adorable and sweet. Lol Justin really is a planner isn't he. I think they need to invest in a generator for the house. I can see Justin wanting a windmill one or something lol

 

I am truly loving this 💕💕💕

Hopefully the Petersons will wind up in a really horrible one room apartment.  It is a good thing that Jow decided to trust Debbie.  Justin does like to be prepared and they all enjoyed their adventure ehich didn't last too long.  I so appreciate all you rcomments.  Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Craig's gifts were very well thought out and a good honest step in the right way.

 

joan is really missing out, I pray she opens her eyes soon because she'll be alone forever otherwise.

 

Thank you for this, I'll read more tom as its after 11 at night here and I'm off to sleep. Hope you can write tons more soon snd I can't wait to see the babies.

Omg I sooooo love Gus and his chatter it's adorable. Brian and Justin are really giving him a childhood filled with happy memories. I wish Mel would, she is a bitch and favouring JR. She needs to be taught a lesson. I hopen and pray that the boys go for full custody because Gus needs to be with them full time or else he will feel pushed aside. 

Can you slap Michael for me plzzzzzz lol

You are really doing an incredible job with this story xx

Joan is an ungrateful twit I wish she'd open her eyes and heart. She'll die a sad lonely woman. I really feel for Brian and the boys.

 

Brilliant work x



Author's Response:

Joan is really her own worst enemy.  Her Grandsons would be happy for her to be part of their lives but she blocks all attempts.  Brian is lucky he found Justin or he could ne more like his mother sad & alone.  Luckily Brian, John & Peter has other people who love them and are there for them.  Happy that you are enjoying the story.  Thanks for taking time to review.  I do love to get reviews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Craig is missing out as well, I hope this is a genuine act to form some sort of relationship with Justin and Brian, he needs to see how much in love they are.

 

oooooh the train room, I wanna play in there as well.

I found this chapter so moving, I felt a little chocked up at Joan's history. It really does explain a lot to why she is the way she is. I hope we see her come into the main house sometime and get to know her son and Justin better. I'd love to see her sitting in te garden and enjoying it as well.

 

I love the laughter and love in this house, it really warms my heart. Thank you for that 💕💕💕



Author's Response:

Joan has had a sad life but now it almost seems like that is the way she wants it.  She doesn't want to change or thinks that she can't.  B&J have a ahppy household.  Look slike you are catching up on your reading.  Thanks for the review!!  Bill

Great to catch up with their lives again... Mel needs a serious attitude adjustment - hopes she listens to Ted. Mel always had a huge chip on her shoulder - time that got knocked off and sees people around her the way they really are not what she thinks they are - including herself.  Looking forward to more.



Author's Response:

Happy you enjoyed the update and yes I know it was too long between updates!  I agree with you about Mel but I think maybe Ted got through to her.  Of course if Mel gives Jennifer any crap she may not live long enough to mend her ways.  You know I LOVE reviews so thanks for taking time to post one!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Bill

OK It's offical I am a bad reader. I didn't stop at last chapter to let you know that I so LOVE this story.

Liking how you have Ted not letting Mel get away w/BS. That's what BF's are for even estranged/strained ones.

Thanks for the lastest update and always lookin forward to more

I love this story so much. Thank you for writing



Author's Response:

Thank you for letting me know that you love my story.  When I wrote the first chapter of "Sickness & Health, Good Times & Bad"  I never dreamed this saga would continue this long.  The reason that it has continued is REVIEWS!!  Bill

Reviewer: wellreadbunny (Signed) · Date: June 06, 2017 06:04 AM · On: Chapter 30

Thanks as always. I can't wait till Michael has his first day working under Cynthia. Do you think he will make the whole day?

Author's Response:

I agree with you I think Day One of Miket at Kinnetik will be fun.  We'll have to wait and see how thinks evolve.  Thanks for all your support, you know I love reviews!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: Lorma (Signed) · Date: June 06, 2017 01:11 AM · On: Chapter 30

I'm kind of hoping that Melanie has had time to think about her behavior and is ready to make some changes.  Grand mom Jen will definitely set her on the right track. 

Delightful chapter.  I love reading how much fun the Kinney Taylor household is.



Author's Response:

I think Mel is having a hard time having to accept help.  She always wants to be independent and in charge but sometimes you just have to accept help.  I think Ted got her on the right track but Gandmom Jen will reinfroce the message for sure!!  Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed the latest update.  I love reviews!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: June 05, 2017 09:36 PM · On: Chapter 30

It appears that the new year is starting off good, for the Kinney/Taylor family.  Love Ted's talk with Melanie.  I was surprised that she actually took in what he was saying.  Just maybe she's learned something.  Put Gus first.  I fear that Jennifer will let Melanie have it if she starts something or hurts Gus in any way.  Guess I'll have to wait for the next chapter to see.



Author's Response:

Hello my friend, always make me happy to see your review.  It was a good start to the new year.  I think Mel really heard what Ted had to say, she better hope so or Grandmom Jen might hurt her.  We'll have to wait and see if the police are called.  Thanks for all your support, I appreciate all your reviews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Shorter than usual today. Work work work.

Ted was brilliant here! He said everything than needed to be said in a way that Mel would/could accept it, but still strongly enough to really get the point across. yes she's been through a lot in the past year or so, but to behave the way she has been, considering everything the boys have done for them is unbelievable. she's lucky they have Gus, cause I do think that they would've cut ties period. Then where would they be. Pride cometh before teh fall is completely appropriate for Mel in this case. Hopefully she really heard what he said. she's not one for tears, but I'm hoping these weren't of teh crocodile variety.

As always a wonderful chapter. My heart always is on the verge of bursting when I read about all the joys, love etc with the boys and their family. Extended and otherwise.

I'm kinda looking forward to when Michael goes to work at Kinnetik. hehehehe. He's going to get a very rude awakening I think. Will it work out I wonder? Will Cynthia be the one to make him grow the hell up?!?

thank you!! this brought a smile to my morning. Wonderful update! Hope all is goingwell with you.

Cheers

Elaine



Author's Response:

Happy to see your review!!!!!!  I stayed up late last night to get this chapter ready it post so it would be there for you on Monday.  Sorry that blasted work got in the way.  I think Mel needed to hear some words of wisdon from Ted.  I do think it is hard for strong independent people to accept help. Glad you enjoyed this chapter.  I appareciate all your support for the story, thanks for being such a loyal reviewer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Oh oh Mel better watch out, Mother Taylor stretching her claws. Nice chapter, looking forward to the next one!



Author's Response:

Mel has had a taste of portective Mother Taylor in the past.  She might be hiding under the bed when Gus is delivered.  Happy to know you enjoyed this chapter.  Thanks for the review!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: Tiffany (Anonymous) · Date: June 05, 2017 11:26 AM · On: Chapter 30

I was thrilled to see an update this morning. This continues to be one of my favorite stories. I'm glad Ted was able to somewhat get through to Mel, it seemed that she was doing well for awhile but then reverted back to her old self. As always, I loved the interactions with the boys and B/J. Gus is just too cute. Will we be getting an update on the twins next chapter? 

Wonderful update, as per usual!

-Tiffany



Author's Response:

Glad you were gald to see th eupdate and enjoyed this chapter.  I know my updates are slower these days, sorry!  I think Mel is just overwhelemed, mostly because she hates that she can't handle everything without help.  Yes definite update on th eporgress of the twins.  Thanks for the review!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: bksbracelet (Signed) · Date: June 05, 2017 09:42 AM · On: Chapter 30

Woah I think Mel is going to get another little chat lol first from Ted and now I bet Jennifer

Author's Response:

I don't think Jennifer will be silent but she may be kind ... or not.

Reviewer: Suse (Anonymous) · Date: June 04, 2017 06:56 PM · On: Chapter 29

I have so enjoyed reading your stories. I reread Sickness and Health, Good Times and Bad and then moved on to this sequal. Great storytelling. It provides a warm, comfy feeling even with some of the angst. I truly hope you will continue telling this tale. Multi chaptered AU has always been my favorite!



Author's Response:

Thank you so much for letting me know you are enjoying my stories.  I love to hear from the readers!!!  I just posted a new chapter and hope you continue tp enjoy the story.  I really appreciate you taking the time to review!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

great update-  Melanie and Ben both have work to do in their relationships.  I hope you find new topics since the holidays are over in this universe.

 

Michael better realize that Kinnetik is not just a place to hang out.



Author's Response:

I agree Mel & Ben do need to work on having better relationships.  Mel also need some help in dealing with everything going on in her life.  Oh I have new topics in mind.  AS couple loose ends to tie up here, than a spring trip to Disney and than (drum roll please) BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Thanks for taking time to review, always great to see your comments!!  Bill

My Sweet Baboo, I really loved this chapter. I was very happy Joe went to Britin, he seemed to have a good time and is making friends, he even made french toast like his mom used to make for him. Of course my favorite, Kevin was there he's such a sweet heart. All the boys making breakfast for the adults and smaller children . everyone seem to have a good time. The group at Babylon were having a good time too. I think mikey is going to be a problem at work. Something is going on with Mel she was some what mellow in previous chapters, an now she was mean to Ted. Everyone sees how she talks trash about Brian in front of Gus, Gus loves his daddy and it hurts to hear what she is saying.Question : What is going on with John and Peter's fuckard deadbeat dad? loved the purple nails.Love Always Your Sally



Author's Response:

Hello my Darling Sally, so happy to know you enjoyed this chapter.  I think Joe ws happy to be among kids his own age again.  He was used to a normal teenage life until his Mom got sick & died.  John & Patrick were nice to him.  Thye know better than to bully anyone!  Grandmom Jen & Uncle Justin would be MOST upset if everyone wasn't nice to Joe.  The older boys all worked together to make breakfast for everyone and to make sure the little kids were taken care of so the adults could relax and enjoy the food.  Babylon was a new experience for some but everyone got in the mood of the occasion and enjoyed themselves.  Mel probably enjoyed the evening as long as she stayed away from Blake & Justin, the blond pitbulls.  They do no not sit back and accept any attacks on their partners.  I think Blake is ocrrect that Mel needs some help dealing with everything going on in her life.  I'm sure Ron Townsend is plotting & planning.  He probably wants to avoid another Alice encounter and he has no idea the trouble he will be in if he runs into Grandmom Jen!  I am always very glad to see comments from you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Love from you Sweet Baboo

Reviewer: wellreadbunny (Signed) · Date: May 12, 2017 02:33 AM · On: Chapter 29

Great chapter, lots of details. I can't believe Ben still wants to stay with Mickey. Brain is going to be so sorry.

Author's Response:

Thanks, I was afraid manybe there was too much detail on what everyone was wearing.  Once I started describing the outifits I didn't think it was right to leave anyone out.  Ben loves Michael and we all know love is blind! Or how about there's a lid for every pot?  I think Cynthia will make sure that Mikey knows that Brian's office is a no Mikey zone!  It will be an eye openng experience for Michael and my be really good for him.  Thanks for the review!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill

Reviewer: rulisteningbj (Anonymous) · Date: May 11, 2017 08:31 PM · On: Chapter 1

I have to say I am still so in love with this story.  What a wonderful family Brian and Justin have made for themselves.  As well as their close friends having the backs.  I was so proud of Blake putting Mel in her place.  Hopefully she will get help or understand what she is going is wrong. 

Dee Dee



Author's Response:

Wow!  Thanks for the nice comments, I am very flattered.  I am happy you are enjoying the story, I enjoy writing it and I really enjoy hearing from the readers.  B&J are lucky with their family & friends who do support them 110%.  Mel made her mistake with Blake by attacking Ted.  Those blond guys don't like anyone trying to mess with their men!  Mel does need to get help in dealing with everything going on in her life.  I love reviews so thanks very much for taking time to post one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Bill
