I like the way you integrated the poem into the text. It was like another layer to the story. Mustaine's inner thoughts were really interesting throughout, sad though, and the ending was quite heavy, I had to read it twice. Oh, and, "Now he's miles away from that other slut." :) Who might that be, I wonder.
Julietds's response: Thank you dear! That's one of my favorite poems, I'm glad it fitted with the story. Also I'm fond of drama, in case you couldn't tell. Haha. The romantic triangle reference is open to suggestion, so...let there be crack pairing fantasies, I say ;) Sorry for the late reply and thanks again for your support!
It's rare to read a fic where Mustaine is so insecure like this. I liked the alternative perspective, although it was a little unsettling to read Bruce as a slightly cold and emotionless guy (or was that just Mustaine's paranoia talking ?) Great use of the poem too, it seems to tie the whole story together well. I really liked this. Well done!
Julietds's response: Thank you very much! You got it right, I wanted to portrait Bruce as seen through Mustaine's eyes, considering the whole story was written with his pov. I wanted to expose Dave's more tender and insecure side, the one that induces him to be wary of his lover since he got it bad and he's afraid of losing such a "free spirit" as Bruce. Anyway I hope it wasn't too confusing, I'm glad you enjoyed it :D
Thank you for a sweet, sweet chapter<3 I like the way you describe confused Izzy. He kissed Axl and he didn't think he was in love with Axl? I thought he felt love at that point. 😁 Anyway, Izzy, you finally recognize your feelings, just see Axl and say what you need to say! Don't wait until you're ready like Chris said. JUST GO NOW.
