Review of chapter "Absentee Dad" from CameronYoung
Review:
That was kinda amazing. I don't know what else to say other than it was awkward, brutal and real. It really got the feel for the movie and then rebuked it. Good job.

Review of chapter "Absentee Dad" from ShyBob
Review:
Wow...not what I was expecting (I thought Tucker might be Andrew's imagination). This was even better! Your dark tone for the story matches the movie nicely, and I kept waiting for Andrew to come to a bad end. A lot of authors used him as a throwaway character, but you've done a great job with him here. Great dialogue and pacing.

Review of chapter "Absentee Dad" from thecrystalkey
Review:
I really like this. Andrew's all growed up and now he's helping Tucker. The idea of Tyler as their father is brilliant because it would explain SO much. Good work.

Review of chapter "Absentee Dad" from moonluck
Review:
This story is great. I agree with this not being in your Evil is Relative story. It kind of less silly and Tyler isn't really "evil". I think a sequel would be cool. You could set it after the end of the movie and the narrator (they are his kids right?) seeks them out.

Review of chapter "Absentee Dad" from CedarPineSpruce
Review:
Very cool. It is nice to revisit Andrew and witness his emotional growth. You have written an Andrew that has found his strengths, and who is not being guided by what is the "in" thing - exactly what Durden was trying to accomplish. Durden's vision was crippled by his mental instability, so your Andrew has accomplished more than his father has.

You are Jack's kick ass story. ;-)

Review of chapter "Absentee Dad" from Bugeyedmonster
Review:
Maybe it's darker but there's something about Andrew in this that's damned sweet. He doesn't need their father because he has 'real' family through the slayers and the scoobies. Now I'm wondering if Tyler left the boys in the hope that when he popped up later they'd be so emotionally starved for 'family' that they'd follow him anywhere?

Well written and interesting, one of the best Andrew centered stories I've read.

Review of chapter "Absentee Dad" from utilitariancaramel
Review:
Awesome. Especially awesome given that 'feminization' is what Durden railed against - and what made Andrew so, er, cool?

Review of chapter "Absentee Dad" from Arjai
Review:
Dad doesn't sound to trustworthy or for that matter to sane. Good start.

Review of chapter "Absentee Dad" from Hecatonchires
Review:
Should this have been part of that evil parent thing? It was good. I loved Fight Club.
Comments from author:
I was writing it for that, and then it turned kinda dark and angsty and didn't really seem to belong next to Dr. Evil's robot shark anymore, so I just put it by itself. I'll probably write another parent story for Andrew for that series, something lighter.

I love Fight Club too. I was surprised how "bad" Tyler ended up, but really if you take him away from the narrator he'd be pretty scary crazy... as opposed to funny crazy :) Also, I dicovered the levels I could go with Andrew! I'd never really thought about it before, but he's an angst fountain if you let him go.
