Fun! And sweet and just right.

This one is really boring me. Good thing it's so short. Only 50% but it's all football talk and who the best coach is. I haven't laughed once. It's not charming, and watching Simon get sloppy drunk is just eh. I'm not sure what the point of this ones supposed to be. Going to try the last half now

Second half was better. Them in the kitchen was cute but I never laughed and never really got into the short story. It's free, but I think I would have rather not read this one. It just feels like what

This was okay and great to see the interaction with the parents but, it still lacked something.

Always love seeing Dec and Simon. The first half was ok with the parents sitting together and chatting/arguing about teams. The second half was more intimate with Simon and Dec sharing a private moment together getting a break from the parentals. Too short, but still a nice peek.

So a few reviewers were sad that this short was a bit heavy on the football side. Just because you don't know the sport doesn't mean it wasn't a good short. I shall point out the many times Simon and Roger talk about football in the actual novels. Not sure why this was a criticism but I digress. I loved that the family members were "discussing" football when they so obviously had different opinions. Simon having a meltdown during and after the whole meet was hilarious. The sweet ending between ...more

I agreed with Bubbles that this was a bit MEH. Only talking about football, in a league that I had no recognition or knowledge of (if they're talking about English Premiere League or even Spanish La Liga -- which are more popular in Indonesia -- I might enjoyed it better). BUT, it was fun to see Simon drunk. They were just adorable. So I could still give it my 3-stars.

Yet another little vignette from the Wizard of Oz!! This was also a laugh as Simon was drunk (and we all know what happens when he gets drunk!). If you love them like I do, visit the Wizard's website and download the free 'Countdown to the End of the World' story based on the Mayan calendar apocalypse (I'd suggest you download the second option as it's easier, you'll see what I mean). Freaky but fun!

Super short but it is Simon and Dec - and Simon is panicking again!
This goes back to early days and a first meeting of parents, though really it is about Simon dealing with the stress - never straightforward!
Only makes sense if you have read the books and a big fan - I have, I am!

Here comes another sweet and very very short scene from back in the day @Tigers&Devils-main story, which was skipped in book 1. --- it was cute, not much else to add ^^; If you like the main book, you will enjoy this too..

I was looking forward to read this and see their parents. All I got was football. Lots of football. I don't understand why Sean bothered. I was very disappointed.

When Sean Kennedy says short story, he really mean short. There wasn't a whole lot to this brief scene of families meeting.

A great short

I really like the characters of Dec and Simon. The story was cute but I look for more character development

so no jokes, it's more about anxiety, although a cat learning more about how to sneak from a specific human was funny.

I always enjoy reading about Declan and Simon. It was nicing seeing how their relationship was going two months after being outed and official.

Extremely short, slice-of-life. Throw in more brooding from Simon. Three and a half stars, maybe - it's sweet, but didn't really add anything to the series.

I don't know how to feel about this short. I enjoyed the last few paragraphs, but the rest I didn't need to read.
That was so sweet! <3 Because they can... :)
I love little snippets like these where we get glimpses of their lives. I adore Simon and Declan!

3.5 stars, rounded up.

The best AFL coach in history is definitely Kevin Sheedy (he has a Richmond connection too, so Simon and Dec should be able to agree if their respective dads cannot).

I can't get enough of Simon and Dec. So happy to see that not only SK released a X'mas-themed SS, one can get it free from his website.
