Story:A Guy Like Your Brother Chapter: One

Hello again!

 

I’m back for another review for Quodpot Match 1 with the star crossed lovers theme.

 

Ok. I’m trying to be open minded, but I’m pretty grossed out at the idea of Lorcan dating Lily, shagging James, and pining after Albus. I get that Lily is ace and so Lorcan needs a physical outlet, but it’s kind of icky that there’s all this sibling swapping going on. I think it’s made even grosser by Lorcan lying about it. I think the siblings deserve to know the truth.

 

I also think it’s odd that Lorcan would set up these meetings and then not pay attention during them. Seems a bit inconsiderate on his part. Isn’t he supposed to be supporting the other people suffering from boyfriend/girlfriend brother love?

 

The scene with Lily was sweet until Lorcan started going on about how he should tell her, but he’s afraid to hurt her. Gah. I’m trying to find something nice to say about Lorcan, but to be honest, you’ve made him pretty detestable to me.

 

I’m interested to see where this goes. I wonder if this all blows up in his face.

Hey there!

 

I’m dropping by to leave you a review for Quodpot Match 1 because this story has the friends to lovers tag. 

 

This is an interesting start for sure. I’m really surprised at both Lorcan and Lily’s cavalier feelings towards their relationships. It would be different if they had sort of discussed things first and agreed to be polyamorous, but it seems to be something of a surprise here.

 

I do find it amusing that Lily is into Lysander. Clearly, Lorcan has a much higher opinion of his brother than he does if himself. That’s sort of sad really, but then confidence is appealing, so it’s not surprising which way Lily is going.

 

I am surprised that there’s that many people out there who are in Love with their boyfriend or girlfriend’s brother. That seems like a fairly odd predicament to be so popular. I’d think the majority of people would just end the relationship if they were no longer interested?

 

Again, interesting start! I’m off to check out chapter 2 now.

So I didn't know what I was expecting when I decided to click in this story, but I certainly didn't see this coming. I find the concept of a club for people who are in love with their significant other’s sibling is absolutely hilarious but also, let's face it, a bit pathetic.


I really admire how unapologetic and feisty Lily is. She just barges in there, hangs out Lorcan’s laundry for everyone to see, and it's like there, now we're even; you deal with it. And of course, neither of them can judge the other because that's textbook definition for a kettle calling a pot black. Unless Lily is just doing this to spite Lorcan, but I guess I'll have to read on to see.


It's also very interesting to see that Lorcan is so jealous of his brother, especially if he's attractive/good enough to be with Lily and James at the same time, and even has his eyes set on Albus.


So far, the premise of this story is interesting and I think it's going to be really funny. I'd love to see what comes next so I'll definitely hop onto the next chapter.

Hi Lils! This is your sign-up review for the Body Positive challenge!

 

I picked this story because it sounded absolutely hilarious and I did not pay attention to the length. I didn't realize it was so short! Where is the next chapter? This story just like... reaches up and smacks you in the face! Why yes, Lorcan, I AM in love with your brother and you're sleeping with and crushing on both of mine, so there!

 

What in the actual hell?! I've never read such a straight forward prologue! And there's no next chapter, this is torture! You've already set up some rather interesting dynamics and a lot of unanswered questions like... How does this effect the Lily/Lorcan relationship? Will the break up? Are they going to stay together even though they both know they're in love with other people? What about the people who are in love with their boy/girlfriend's sisters? Are they allowed in this group? If not, will that be an issue later on? What exactly is the point of this secret society?

 

ANSWERS! ANSWERS, LILY, I NEED THEM!

 

There were a couple of typos.

quarks - quirks

apposed - opposed

 

Where is the next chapter?!?!?!?
