Fear and Desire - Part 5: In Good Times and Bad

--Originally Posted September, 2012--

"And here it is - the fifth and final part of 'Fear and Desire'. As always, thoughts/constructive criticism is encouraged/welcomed. I'd like to thank those of you who have read this, my first ever story of 'extensive' length shall we say. I hope you've enjoyed it! I would very much like to revisit this universe some day, so who knows, a sequel may happen at some point in the future.

Anyway, enough of all that. Just one author's note i'd like to make, i've used what is pretty much a UK-centric (i think) term of 'two stone' to refer to weight in the course of writing. It may be more understood if i point out this equates to about 30lbs, or just under 15kgs, depending on whether you prefer imperial or metric units :)

Note: A "Christmas Special" was written for this - it's available as the next part :)

    I Finally read this.

    not bad, not bad at all, a nice way to show the friendship between the two 'main' characters, and having Jim bite, absolutely perfect way to show a (BLEEP) character; having them use dirty rotten tricks to win, and still have them lose miserably.

    and also, the friendship between the gay and straight main character duo shows a real lesson in acceptance, one that many close-minded people could learn from.

    truthfully, the 'UK-speak' took a bit of deciphering at parts for me, but that's likely because I'm not used to this way of speech and I managed to work it out and truly liked this story.

    I'll give my overall rating once I've read the 'Christmas special'

      Happy to know you liked the story, and the character behaviours. Jim's tactics just go to show what a headcase he is D:

      I really enjoyed throwing the "UK-speak" in there, just to add another level to the story and make them sound like real people. I'm glad you managed to negotiate the dialect :P

        yeah, it wasn't too difficult to comprehend the dialect.
