I waited to review this, so it's not quite as fresh. But I Have to say that this was a nice change of pace. A different sort of story, it could have easily transitioned into a paranormal with a ghost appearance, and in a way I wanted it to, but it was good the way it was.
I liked the comparison of William's life to Bill's. I really enjoyed Will and Colby's slow relationship development. The one complaint would be the all-too-common and dreaded miscommunication. Their estrangement went on a bit too long, so that I wasn't as involved when they finally got back together. And they only got back together at the end so I didn't have time to bask in it.
But a lovely story nonetheless.
