This is a great portrayal of how a harsh upbringing after a sudden loss can cause life long pain. A child losing both parents needs more love and attention, not less to understand they didn't cause it. I hope you write more. I'd like to see someone, an OC come into Ken's life and teach him about love and what it can bring.

I keep returning to this story. It certainly tugs at my heart and brings tears to my eyes every time I read it.
Nambu's expectations gave Ken a very rough life. I would love to see an epilogue (or continuation) where "the others" manage to help Ken learn to rebel.

I read and commented on this on fanfiction.net already, but I'll comment here too. :) As a kid who also had to deal with the unfairness of high expectations, I definitely relate, though I won't claim that my parents were anywhere near as drastic as Nambu is in this. Reading it again still made me teary-eyed. *sniffle*

Wow, this is very similar to what I see happening in my stories. Only the high expectations are place on Mark by his Grandfather and not by Anderson.
The way you showed us what was happening brought the feeling and emotions across very well. I was in tears at some points. Very nice work.
Author's Response: Great minds think alike. I'd like to read it when you post it. =3

I can so relate to this story and how Nambu would be harder on Ken because of higher expectations. I went through similar things with my two years older sister. I was always considered the smarter one so when I brought home average grades I got grounded just like Ken while my sister who brought home C work got to go out and do things ect. I resented it for a long time.

Bueno, ya estuve llorando un rato y espero que mi esposo no lo note, me encanto tu historia! De alguna forma pienso que le debieron exigir un poco mas desde que fue el primer "hijo" de Nambu...
