The desk moment reminds me of the Bennoda art by TYShangshan on dA, except that one was Chester bottoming. God they’re stuff is so good.

Allow me to say that you passed that milestone just fine. ;)

The slash was incredibly hot. I loved how Mike thought he was determined to keep the attraction under cover until he turns to ash, and then all it took was one Chester's sentence to cave in completely. :D I admit that I enjoyed the last slashy scene. I guess I have a weakness for submissive Mike. Cannot help it. :D

The ending was unproportionally sad. :/ And you know why? Because it's reality. I'm not saying that there was any actual romantic thing going on between Mike and Ches in the real life. But that doesn't matter. Because losing best friend and fellow bandmate hurts just as much as losing a loved one. And I doubt I will ever get over this haunting image of Mike, sitting in his studio all alone. :'(

Beautifully written, thumbs up!

This fic caused so many emotions!! It is great, I love the way Mike was slowly falling deep for Chester, to the point of creating that home studio just to have him close. I wonder if Mike would have made a move if Chester hadn't been so straight forward... they surely created wonderful memories in that studio for Mike to hold on to. The end truly broke my heart. And SERIOUSLY you should write more bennoda, you are pretty good at it. Thank you.

I do love good Bennoda, and this is it! Chester is so forward about the whole thing, and at first I thought they'd just have a little tryst and it would be over, but no... it turned into something that clearly lasted years, and created all these memories for poor Mike. (I love Mike so much!!)

Chester fucking Mike on the desk-- yes. I can imagine that so well, I can see that room in my mind, so that makes the scene extra good, in my opinion, because I can exactly visualize it as you describe.

Ugh. The end... all those memories, and all of the loss. It just pulled at my heart. Thanks for writing this!

Congrats on writing some bennoda! I know it's not for everyone, but it's absolutely a guilty pleasure of mine :) I have to say, I was loving Mike's admiring Chester from a difference thing, and then bam! Chester was just, let's get this going! lol and he was so persistent about it. Your slash was great and then there was the ending and my heart sank. Poor Mike. So many amazing memories so at least he'll always be able to look back and remember. Thank you for sharing this with us :)

I enjoyed the way you tied the title into the fic on multiple occasions. It supplied a nice linear feel to it, especially when you consider that it's a reflection: he hasn't known, he doesn't know now, probably never will. It ends on that note of "unfinished business," which definitely packs a ton of emotion into this one-shot.

Well done! I read the bit where you said this was out of your comfort zone and I couldn't tell. It all flowed very naturally!
