It's like a high school fic that isn't lame and is all cracky and shit. Read it.

In this edition of FTANH: Demetri gets a history, Nate gets some balls (relatively speaking), Jon is chivalrous, and Rob is dramatic.

I get so fucking excited every time a new chapter is posted. This is possibly the greatest series EVER.

Oh, and just for my own clarification, junior = grade 11, yes? Forgive me... I'm from Canada.

And holy crap, Jon is sooooo sweet and I love him to pieces and I want to take him home and pinch him lots. And DEMETRI! Every time he's in a chapter I freak out because I adore him so very much. He is perhaps my favourite comedian at the moment. And I love how this weird young version of him actually fits really well. Sooo... COOKIES FOR YOU! ♥

I want to say something smart and witty and constructive but the only thing that comes to mind is, Awwwwwwwwwwwww Demetri!
21st-Jun-2007 06:26 pm (UTC)
This chapter was adorable! I loved it. Yay!
21st-Jun-2007 08:46 pm (UTC)
Love it! I enjoy a shift in tone, and it's so appropriate considering everything Rob feels.

And Demitri = love.

more pleeeeese! I need my next fix!

I like this chapter. The part with the opossum (which I noticed you left the o off, which always makes me laugh for some reason because it shows how much the English language is fucked), *sigh* the little thingsin this make it so hilarious.
21st-Jun-2007 11:47 pm (UTC) - “Rob…” Jon finally ventured. “What happened with Chewie?”
I'm running out of superlatives for this story. All the characters are so distinct and so well written. I love learning about each character's past and seeing how they interact with each other. Jon remains my favorite but Demetri and Nate were awfully sweet here too.

I can't wait to read more.
22nd-Jun-2007 06:13 am (UTC)
More Demetri/Nate! Yay!

If life were an anime, I would have little hearts floating around my head every time I read this. :D

Hehe, this was pretty cute. I think Rob was a little bit too whiny and emo-ish, I could see him crying at first, but after a few weeks I would think that he might have dissolved into that angry "I hate the world I'm a tough guy huur huur *beats chest*" sort of state. Meh, but that's just me, take it or leave it :)

Yanno, I don't know all that much about Demetri, but this history you've given him seems totally believable. When I was younger I wasn't allowed to watch TV or play video games on the weekdays, so I feel his pain =D

I'm trying to figure out the ratio of gay couples to straight in this... hrm, it always bothers me a little when there are a lot of slash pairings as opposed to het, at least in stories where there are a LOT of characters, because the general populus of the country is in fact mostly straight. Though I suppose compared to the rest of the school population, this is just a small grouping, and hey, it's fanfiction, of course there's gonna be slash =D There are just so many pairings to concentrate on O_O. Are any of the mentioned pairings in the header more "friendship" pairings as opposed to "romantic" pairings? I don't think Rob can exactly romance "Frustration" xD That would be some mighty insane crack!fic.

Hrm, I really need to start commenting on all the fics I read. I dunno if I asked this in a previous comment, but about how long is this story shaping up to be? It's awesome so far, I just worry that it'll get waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long. I suggest keeping it below 30 chapters xD

Cheers again, keep on truckin!

I don't think I've left you a comment, how remiss of me!

First step, concrit: Do you work for Phillip-Morris, or something?

Second step, fangirl: This is totally cracky and fun! I can't believe I didn't give in earlier! It has cuddling, rampant gay-being, crazy Will Ferrell, crazier Steve Carrell, and, for the absolute fucking win, you found a way to set Ann Coulter on fire!!!!!

Last step, beg for more: More? Please? :D
22nd-Jun-2007 09:51 pm (UTC)
Oh, I think I'm falling in love with your Demetri. He's such an oddball, yet such a sweetheart. I like the description his past, it explains him well. And aaw @ overly-emo Rob, and the fact that only James Taylor understands him. =]

Also, Jon makes little anime-style hearts float up above my head. *swoon*
24th-Jun-2007 04:03 am (UTC)
Aww, I love your Jon!

*shuts off Love You Madly, which I just realized has been on repeat for the last two chapters* iTunes, I curse thee!
24th-Jun-2007 04:06 am (UTC)
Aww, dude, this is the last chapter so far? I thought I had one more left! Poo, that means I have to go to bed and then get up and do more homework. Sighs. More please?

I'm so glad I finally gave in and started reading this. ;D

Great chapter!! I love this story so much. And I'm really loving the character of Demetri, and this friendship that he and Nate have.

I love this line:
“Hellooo,” Demetri murmured, waving with the fingers of one hand. A look of amusement passed over the older boy’s face as he offered a small smile in return.
I feel like I do that stupid sort of "hellooo" often, when meeting new people. Haha.

Coming in late - "sporatically" should be "sporadically". (And the author is "yours" truly - there's no such construction as "your's".)

Oh, man, Rob's angst, and Jon's awkward-but-sympathetic helpfulness, and Demetri's, well, weirdness. I love.
7th-Jul-2007 05:04 am (UTC)
i am the queen of lateness
but yes me likie this chapter. :) i'm starting to like Demetri/Nate, which is odd.
and oh Rob, Rob Rob Rob...
is eagerly awaiting next chapter!! :D

Oh my god, I've just read all the previous chapters-Jon and Stephen and Zombie-pot loooove-and Anderson as the cute overachieving leader, and Sam and her Sven, and, Ed, and. I just love it. I totally stumble upon these awesome epic fics whenever I have huge projects and finals due but it's always worth it.

So, I guess I just wanted to let you know that I have much love for this series even though I *never* like real person fic (although all the Daily Show/Colbert Report fic writers are making me reconsider this) and I especially do not like high school AU fic. But you've just made me love it. It's twisted and quirky and your dialogue is made of win. And this is definitely going down in my bookmarks as one of those, couldn't stop reading even though two huge projects are looming over me with eyes of doom, must re-read when I have time to properly enjoy everything. Bwahahaa! I must read the rest!

AND I love the Lord of the Rings details you have put in with Stephen. Omg, LotR geeks for the win. That was totally me in middle school, I love it!
