Title: Chapter 8

So... now we're all day drinking during the pandemic lol so MP shouldn't feel too bad at all. You wrote this way before the pandemic began but it's just so funny because in your The Return series MP is about to go nuts being stuck in hiding and you started that one way before the pandemic too and now we're all nuts, too. Did you know this was going to happen or something. I relate so hard to MP in all of these fics you write. I'm going to review The Return but I gotta catch up on our work or my buttt will get fired.

My mouth keeps landing on the floor::::::::::::

"Nothing," Jarod rebutted incredulously. He frowned deeply. "You look ill," he observed softly, whispering her name. "Can I get you something? Peppermint tea? A cool washcloth?"

"No," answered Parker curtly. "I want this to be over."

"Please tell me you haven't deluded yourself into believing this will be over once you've told Eli I'm his father," Jarod said, sympathetically. "It won't."

"Wow, Jarod, you must be an absolute sensation at parties."

"You'd prefer dishonesty?"

Parker contemplated Jarod's question for several moments and quietly withdrew from the bedroom.

Love how you close the chapter here and how MP answered Jarod's question by walking out... which is a yes to his question lol. Perfect. It shows her complex feelings and difficulty processing everything. For all the comedic elements you sprinkle in this you still remind us that this is really serious $hit and the Centre and Triumverate did so much damage and they are still haunted by it all. You do it so succintly and eloquently.

Title: Chapter 8

Always a pleasure to read you Mirage. I've spent the evening with this story and I'm in love with it. I think it's telling that Jarod understands that he repulses Paker but I think he knows she's attracted in some ways or attracted to him at least when she isn't aware it's him, attracted to what he can do for her. They seem to mutually acknowledge that he can give her what she really wants but she's too repulsed by him to allow herself the satisfaction that he can give her. It's such a paradox and it's not fair and it's in keeping with canon but I sense a change and whether I'm right or wrong I look forward to what comes next. The story and your writing are so intriguing. More please?

Author's Response:

Thanks for reading and reviewing, Contessa. This is fanfic. There is no right or wrong. Reviewers are never wrong. I tend to agree with you that Parker may possibly feel some attraction towards Jarod and given the circumstances that would probably make her even more resistant (or make her want to be more resistant) to those dimples of his. It's difficult to blame her. Thanks again.

Trying to resist the urge to share you on twitter and facebook but I love this. I don't want to piss you off or anything so I won't share you but I wish you would let me!! I love the characterizations. You're so good. You are my favorite pretender author and one of my favorite authors ever. I want more. I love this. I love your writing. Please more.

Author's Response:

That's awesome of you Archange. Keep resisting, okay? You can do it. I won't be "pissed off" (or anything). That said, I didn't sign up for that sort of attention. This is a nice, comfy website (and it's gorgeous too). Thanks for all the kind words. There shall be more.

Title: Chapter 8

Bravo bravo! Always impressive, always exquisite. I was concerned when you didn't update within the week of the previous chapter. I saw nothing on twitter to indicate you had updated today or yesterday and feared you'd left us. I hope you weren't mad about last chapter's twitter frenzy. People enjoy reading and this is a hyperfan fandom. We made the creators give us two moveies.  We need to make them give us another 2 movies. Be proud and feel accomplished. I'm ecstatic that you've returned and I hope you're well. This was another excellent chapter, small but filled with meaning. You leave me craving more. I hope you will continue. Until next Mirage. Ciao.

Author's Response:

I recently encountered a nasty Hurricane that shares your name-- because I always end up in the dead wrong place at precisely the dead wrong time despite my belief that it's safer (and more Eco-friendly) (and more intellectually stimulating) to stay home and read. I. Can't. Be. Still. Speaking of ending up in the wrong place: I wasn't angry about twitter. I didn't know about it until now. I don't approve of my scribblings straying from missing pieces, however, it's fleeting consternation more than anger and I try not to think about the things I can't control. I'm not proud or accomplished. I'm simply appeasing the Muses. Let's not make this more than it is. I will continue. Thanks for the well wishes and same to you.

Title: Chapter 8

Ooh.. I feel so hard for everyone in this one. It's hard. I can see her drinking heavily like this... she did when she learned her mother's body was missing from the coffin. I love that Stella gives Parker a mental health day to cure that hangover and cry it all out. It did her good. She was able to meet Jarod hours later in the AM hours ... still hungover though? Because Jarod could tell she was ill. I love how they didn't care about the almost nudity and that Parker is entering and leaving his life like he once did to her. Showing up and vanishing. You're brilliant and your fiction is addicting as fuck. They are more in character than I've ever seen them and real enough to touch. Thanks for writing, for continuing to update for this poor little fandom. You keep resuscitating it. Please don't let it die. Please. More?

Author's Response:

Hello, Dark One. Mm. I don't know if I've ever been called addicting as fuck before but that's quite an honor. I think. Yes, Parker was still rather hungover. All the tension aside (I have to include the tension between them- it is its own character as I've stated before and was present for every 'Parker & Jarod meet' episode) I prefer the dysfunctional duo to be indifferent to each others's nudity and proximity when possible. Here the last thing on their minds is having sex or warring or the tension. I think the worst is behind them.

I'm wrong. It's not. But that was a lovely thought, wasn't it?

Thanks for all the kind words. You shall have more.

OH my GOD! I want Stella in my life. I love Stella. More Stellas in the world please. I love all of it and can't stop thinking of Jarod in bed with his shirt open *fans self* Dear me me me. More please? Thank you for sharing your gift with us.

Author's Response:

Ah, I see. I'm sorry. Sometimes I don't know how to respond and this is one of those times. It wasn't meant to be sexual or even remotely arousing. The man's exhausted and puzzled. Parker's hungover and overwrought. Head outta the gutter, Jen (there could be a maniacal clown down there). There will be more. Thank you for reading and reviewing.
