  1. Thank you so much for that :D And I love long reviews! :D

    I see after your review that I haven't succeeded completely though, and I'm already seeing things I would have written differently :P Basically my idea was that she had found the letters and because of it they split, which made Robbie feel like a failure. The essence of this was that despite not loving Tasha that way, he stayed with her because he still loved her and depended on her. I imagine Robbie to be the kind of person who doesn't walk out on somebody just because he realises he's made a mistake staying with them. I think he in his own way would have loved her enough to stay with her and be a great husband and father, and that he would have been willing to do that. So with his life centered around that he lost everything when Tasha found out.

    I have to say though, this has not been a piece I've worked a lot on. I wrote it in one night, right after I suddenly got the idea. And I only got the idea because I was really pushing myself to write something. I wanted to write another Geoff/Lucas oneshot (another independent sequel to the others) but I sort of regret some of the things I've done to that pairing in the past two oneshots, so I'm finding it very hard to pick that one up again and give it a proper ending, which is what it needs. But I knew I just had to write SOMETHING and post it, just to get back into it, so I came up with this piece. Like I said I'm not 100% pleased with how it turned out, definitely not my best work, but I'm hoping that at least it will get my brain switched back on again so that I can find the inspiration to continue the ongoing series of oneshots I have. I have one version of a new sequel that I've already written most of, but I'm still not sure if I want to use it at all, and if I decide to, I think I need to make another one to post before this one. And I'm still not sure how I want it all to end, because like I said, I've done a few things I see now that I would have done differently :P

    Anyway, looong post, sorry! But again, thanks for the review, I'm glad you like the fic :)

  2. I'm pretty sure the reason why it's not back is - like people have pointed out - that it slows down the forum. We had to remove a lot of features when the board started crashing a little over a year ago. Most of these features are now back, but not the who's reading feature, and one of the report systems for the moderators. Personally I miss them both. But I'd rather live without them than get 30 IPS Driver Error messages every day, like we used to before :P

  3. Hello again, and yes I was very bored! Still am, in fact! Working only 100% leaves me with waaay too much down time. I might have to go for a walk for like... four hours, just to kill some time.

    How are all of you guys?

  4. I'm sooo restless and bored.... I've been at work for 12 hours and should probably sleep soon... But... Nah.

    Anyone here? Cause if nobody starts talking to me soon I'm going to go crazy and do something stupid I shouldn't do :P

  5. Isn't Todd leaving the show though? And possibly Lincoln as well?

    I agree that the sexual tension in the episode was amazing. It was built into every scene.

    Personally I don't think the two of them ever will happen. But still, I get the feeling that this has something to do with writers hanging around message boards like BttB, seeing the massive interest in this, and the arguments for why it would make a great storyline. So even though I don't think anything more will ever happen between them for various reasons, I choose to believe that this is just a small statement showing that we weren't the only ones thinking it was a good idea. Call it a tribute to the tension and the possibility, if you will.

    You could call it wishful thinking, but I honestly don't think today's episode was made without thinking about all the stuff we have mentioned. I may be biased, but there was a heck of a lot in that episode that was either very well written (yet discrete) sexual tension, or just some very weird coincidences making it seem like there was. Especially from Lincoln if you ask me. Either he was instructed with something like this, that there should be some sort of subtle undertone of this sort in the scenes, or he just had some very random reactions that didn't make sense in the scenes.

  6. OH.MY.GOD.!! :o :o :o

    Seriously, after Aden said "No, we kissed and made up, didn't we, Geoff" did anyone else SEE the look on Geoff's face?! Like a few seconds later?! Oh my God, please, writers, please, please, PLEASE don't stop this here! Come on, that episode was PERFECT!!!!! THIS is what I've been talking about for so long! THIS is why I think they'd be a perfect storyline! Come on, even ONE episode where they're just trying to be friends, and it's THIS great?! The tension... Oh dear God, I'm going to write fanfics again, God help me.

    I'm posting in capitals! :D :D

  7. Not really :P

    It's not that difficult though, one of them is with a regular schedule, the other one I choose which shifts I take on, and the third I'm completely free to choose how much I work as I tell them when I want to work instead of the other way around. So as long as you write it down to make sure you don't double book yourself, it's not that difficult :wink:

  8. In Brazil two kids aged 8 and 9 or something became the youngest parents ever or something, just a two years ago or something. Basically it can physically be possible, but emotionally it's more of a "how is that possible?"

    I think the Charlie/Ruby storyline has been done better than I thought it would. It definitely hasn't made me like Charlie less at all, and I think it's a story that sort of fits her character, like the background sort of makes sense when it comes to who she is today. Like when we found out about Aden's past.

  9. Where did all the oneshots go? Oh that's right, I stopped writing stuff. But here I am with yet another oneshot again :P

    Story Title: Return Ticket

    Type of story: One Shot

    Main Characters: Geoff and Lucas

    BTTB rating: G/A

    Genre: Romance, angst, drama

    Does story include spoilers: No, it's an independent sequel not specific to any episodes.

    Any warnings: Nope.

    Summary: Some questions need answers. Will you choose yesterday or tomorrow?

    Basically another independent sequel to Just Mates, U, End of Summer and Crazy.

    I'm still a little unsure about it, because I thought I would end this series of oneshots with the open ending "Crazy" left off, as I wasn't sure I wanted to choose one way or another. But, I caved, and here it is, almost two years after the first one: the fifth oneshot in this series, just to prove that I haven't forgotten about these ships. ...And to prove that Lucas is certainly not forgotten :wink:

    Oh my gosh, Eli! :o I remember all those one-shots. This was before I even contemplated Gaden - *sigh* Geoff/Lucas was brilliant and I can not wait to read it.

    Thanks :) Not sure when it will be posted though... It could happen tonight or in three weeks... You see, I had it figured out, but halfway through writing it I got kind of unsure. Let's just say that the first few paragraphs kind of made me think I might not like this one to end the way I had planned out after all. Gah, I confused myself :P
