So this is one of THE BEST stories I have ever read! You are a brilliant author. I love the way you write and your Spencer and Bob is just gorgeous. This is actually my second time reading this and I felt I just had to let you know how much I like it!

Your stories have a tendency to make me think though hahaha
So this makes me feel incredibly stupid but when theirs the part about Spencer’s Tattoo on his thigh and the number is 1231…well I don’t get it. Like, I think I have thought about it for like the 2 months since I last read this and I still don’t understands *fails* Could You maybe explain it to me? Please? I really want to know because it seems to be kinda important.

There is so much awesomeness in this story that I don’t even know what to complement first! Like if I could just ramble on for an hour on all the parts I like, so I’ll just have to point out a few parts.

I really like Spencer’s and Bob’s relationship. They’re not perfect and they fight and one will get bitchy and it just makes them all the better, but at the same time you can tell how much they mean to one another and how they can understand what the others saying without actually saying anything.
Also they relationships with their band members and each other’s is all kind of win. Its kinda crazy realistic on how protective they all are of each other and you can practically feel the love they share for their friends

That being said, the voice you game to Spencer and Bob was just great, I could really imaging it or the scenes where the pictures are being taken. like I could just imagine how it looked in my head!

Well, I think I’ve gushed enough! Thanks so much for creating a wonderful story!

Also your Spencer = win

Author's Response: *hugs you tight* Thanks so much, sweetie. This story means a lot to me, so this is very nice to hear. 12/31 is Bob's birthday, and yeah, that can be a little hard to know unless you're a geek like me.

wow. okay, so today i read this. i just read it as a piece on its own. i briefly went through the reviews when i was about half-way through and got slightly confused by the series thing(i didn't know this was a part of it, i'm stupid like that.), but carried on regardless. afterwards i went out and explored, read your A/N and got it.
now, personally i think this can be read on its own like that, to me there weren't really big blanks. maybe because english isn't my first language and i always miss things, so i'm used to missing things and sometimes not entirely getting parts, so i can just let it go. and anyway, i like blanks, gives the story some sort of.. i don’t know. the word is on the tip of my tongue, but as it won’t pass my lips or open the door to my brain, i’ll leave it.
okay, enough rambling about that, now about the actual story. i really loved it, at one point i went downstairs to get some ice cream and my mum was like “you’re shining, what’s making you so happy?” ..or maybe that was when i was reading ‘just off the key of reason,’ i could be mixing things up in my head, now. sorry. though really, doesn’t really matter, does it? or.. ohidunno.
and this;
“Spencer is totally going to be Ray Toro when he grows up.”
that made me laugh really hard and then cry a little because someone close said that to me once (and then again sometime later), and wow. i’m still so touched. i love that.
overall, lots of love. this is still swimming around in my head a little. Not as much as ‘wednesday night boys,’ that stayed with me for days, but still.
i'm very much looking forward to reading the rest.

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed this so much. This series is pretty much where my heart will always be, so it's generally good to hear nice things about it. Glad you were shining.

i saw the new photos of spencer in a t-shirt. and was surprised there was no drumstick on his arm.

Author's Response: *giggles* sad, but true.

Author's Response: Welcome out of lurkerdom! Aw, thank you so much, this verse is so so SO close to my heart.

Reviewer: newfan Anonymous Date: 15/02/08 - 03:38 pm Title: Chapter 1

it's the bits where they just 'get' each other so well. know all the unsaid, unspoken stuff about each other. makes me all heart-clenchy. in the best way.

bob and spencer are my favourites.

Author's Response: They are both made of awesome, so it's hard to go wrong with them. Thanks!

oh god.

i've been reading this on and off all day.

i have to find the other parts that go with it. i found this searching for spencer fics.

i could absolutely hear their voices in my head as they spoke. and the hesitations and insecurities and fucked-up-edness and strengths and LOVE were so overwhelming. i was close to tears about 4 times.

really beautiful stuff.

Author's Response: Yay!! I'm glad you found this and enjoyed it. This series is super close to my heart. Thank you so much!

*sigh* How do you do it? Seriously. That was so good. I started reading this at 4am, not it's almost 9am. And, I'm all woo-ing. Nice job!

Author's Response: Hee. OMGoodness, SLEEP! Thanks honey, this story has a special place in my heart, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Yeah, so, I've been reading this off and on since you've posted it, and I've pretty much mainlined it by now. I really, really can't wait until you write more Bob/Spencer, because there needs to be more of it. Seriously, it's awesome in a way where I'm late for things because I'm in the middle of a re-read. Like work. Please, please write more of those two.

Author's Response: I think maybe I should stop writing it so that you can, you know, make a living. *g* Thank you, sweetheart.

So I just read your Author's note about TGAN and in it you said that this fic probably shouldn't be read on its own, as a lot of what's going on in it builds on the other fics. However, as someone who stumbled into this series by way of 42 (because I couldn't pass up a Spencer/Bob fic), I actually liked not knowing everything that was going on. It made it seem more real, I guess, because I was making guesses about stuff that would turn out to be true later on. Also, it made reading Scenes From A Bus a bit less difficult because I knew where it was going. Still, it's good to know that the rest of the fics will fill in the blanks left behind by this one. Anyway, excellent job, as always. I can't wait to read the rest of them!

Author's Response: That's actually really awesome to know. I'd never thought of it that way, but that's interesting. *hugs you for your brain* Thank you, love.
