I like those short little stories! They are beautiful and heartbreaking, and I like the way you always have a bunch of short scenes in one chapter. Well done :)

Chapter: 2

I didn't realise how much I missed this before you updated! Seriously, I re-read all the other "chapters" once more and I fell in love with them once more <3

It is insane how you get so many emotions across, with only a few words and by not following a chronology. Sometimes I'm confused because I skip reading the date op top of each drabble but I don't mind going back there, having a look at it, reading it all again.

It's such an interesting way of telling a story that is kind of a real story but kind of not.

The 20th July 2017 one as heartbreaking and I'm glad to know that this is not how it happened but it fits into this setting and it was so perfectly placed.

So, thank you a lot for sharing this!

YAY! Updates!

I love 'July 20th, 2018 1/2', because that moment when Anna opens her arms to Mike and he just walks past her, that is so perfect! That is the perfect human reaction to what happened, despite how terribly tragic it is. And the fact that I can visualize it happening for real, says a lot about your writing. I wish I could convey that much in so few sentences.

Loved all 40 of them. It is incredible how you manage to put so much emotion and storyline and character in such little snippets.

First I was a bit too confused about the jumps in time (especially when the dates were close - like Mike being with his family in the cabin - Mike being homeless - Mike being back home). But once I memorised the month and which scenario belongs where in the timeline, it got easier and then it as just natural to read everything mixed up. And then I started loving it. Because you never know what comes next and that make sit really exciting.

The storyline is... heavy at points. It is hard to read the early ones, about the time Mike is figuring out himself (or better: not figuring out himself). Nice that you brought Jason in there. He could be of great help now that Mike is going a bot crazy.

Can't wait to read more and more of your drabbles! <3

Fuck, these are awesome!!!!!!

Really don’t know where to start! My mind is in overload, sorry no detailed review possible.

Just the way you get all those feelings across with just 100 words...totally blew my mind!

Please keep going!!

Yes! I loved the Fugue short stories in your Little Things collection and it's great to see them all together in here, with loads of new parts. And God does it make me wanna cry. :'( But... that's good. I think. It's okay to cry when you read something sad. I know this didn't actually happen to Mike, but I think the feelings captured in here are probably really similar to those he has to deal with. And I'm glad that the ending part, with him and Christian kissing, is kind of optimistic. Or maybe not optimistic, but hopeful. Great job done on this.

asdfghjkl! It's here! HURRAY!

The Nov. 24th 2017 double drabble is my favorite one, still. I'm sure why I love that one so much, maybe cause I like thinking about Mike's talented mouth. Or maybe it's because the only thing that'd get him to do that, is amnesia, lol.

Also love the one about people guessing his name. And yeah, Mike is VERY good at smiling. That's how he charms people and reels them in.

BTW, Mid-March 2018 makes me think of the lyrics to his song Promises I Can't Keep. In that one, he talks about trying to make it better (I assume he means trying to make Chester better), but making it more sick. Hearing Mike finally be open recently and admit a part of him is angry at Chester, has really been refreshing.
