hmm...maybe the random button isn't so good this time. I feel like there is a LOT I am missing by picking up right here in the middle of your Scotty story. I'll have to rectify this soon...
Still, I liked this. You touched on what was obviously a touchy subject for Scotty, but took it from another character's point of view (his father, I'm guessing) and showed just how conflicted he was about the relationship as well. And while he might not be a part of Scotty's life, or maybe even responsible for the man he is, knowing that he's doing well for himself and becoming a man is certainly something to be proud of.
I feel like this is a relationship that has seen it's share of stress, and I wonder if it ever gets fully repaired, or even gets a bandage on it, before one or both of them depart for good. Still, they're making their way; Scotty did call him first, after all, out of the blue. It's probably a small start, but it's something at least.
Author's Response: The Arc of the Wolf probably is best read in chronological order. But the big one before this would be Junkyard Dogs. ;) But Jay is definitely proud of his son. ...except, his son doesn't actually know it's Jay who is his father. Thanks so much!
