This deserves more reviews. Hilarious!Reviewer: Sammi Signed
An update?Reviewer: Sammi Signed
Twelve years after Carthis, the death of a dear friend reunites predator and prey. *If adultery bothers you, click elsewhere or prepare to be bothered.
Decided to hop aboard. I'm intrigued.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
Just perfect. My, my.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
Binging hard rn. Had to back up to review. This is too plausible.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
Oooh. Oh my god!Reviewer: Sammi Signed
What is so terrifying is that this could happen...and how insightful this all is. I'm supposed to the zoom meeting thing but I don't want to go rn.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
I hesitate to use the word evil Jarod. He is being Jarod imo. He hasn't always treated her that well on the tv series. They bring out the worst in each other so many times. This is a realistic take on what's on my dvds. I'm in awe.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
A crime scene, a chance meeting, two people transcending the lives chosen for them. Jarod POV. S.M.U.T.
*Fans self* This is hot. I'm serious. I love this so much. It's not just hot. It's also professionally written and not cheesy and not trashy. It's still in character and classy. It can't be an easy line to dance along and not cross. Well done. I hope you'll update this.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
When you care enough to send the very best
I hope you don't mind so many reviews all at once but I joined months ago and didn't have time to read and now I'm quarantined and binge reading lol! This is hands down my favorite pretender christmas story. It's beautiful and sweet but not so much that christmas cheer prevents Miss Parker from doing what she should have done a long time ago. I can think of no greater gift. I love this. It's like one of those christmas ghosts stories but with a centre styling.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
Jarod is implicated in a spate of homicides.
Oh, the ending. Oh, my, my. Your prose is eloquent, stunning, gripping, powerful. I love this story, I'm sad to see this end, I'm grateful that you wrote it for us and that you updated it. You gave us a satisfying conclusion. Thank you so much.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
A past transgression jeopardizes Sydney's life.
I'm late to the party. Oops. Oh, Mirage, each piece you write is irresistible and satisfying. I read you compulsively. The characters... how do you write them so in character? I can't get enough. The topic is important and controversial and so original. You're tackling it gracefully.Reviewer: Sammi Signed

Reading you is like watching not reading and I'm loving what I'm watching. More!Reviewer: Sammi Signed
Wild Horses prequel.
Oomph. Profound, horrific.
In your stories Miss Parker usually saves herself. The majority of the time she does. We see her trying to do that here, basically trying to move her hand in a sawing action to make the knife slice the rest of the way through her hand so she can be free. But she doesn't succeed.
Jarod coming in surprised me. You leave it to my imagination to how Jarod arrives and I'm going to say that he and Sydney were in contact. Jarod may have even bugged Sydney's phone. Or Broots begged him to follow Miss Parker when she discovered another victim and went to free the victim.
I think the only reason Jarod didn't end Lyle is because Miss Parker wasn't breathing, ya know? I hope I'm right about my theories. I love this darkness. Please add the rest. Thank you for all of these missing pieces.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
You are a breath of fresh air.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
I love the wit, intelligence, and excitement you pack into each story. The pages are already flying so to speak. I eagerly await future chapters!
Thank you for the rather generous review, Sammi.Reviewer: Sammi Signed

Jarod getting all huffy like this.. ermagherd love it when he does it on the dvds too."a blind woman can even see" oh lordt! Makes my fangirl heart thump harder.
And shout outs to the motorhead tune. My girl Miuna was a metal head mechanic! Yahhh! Please say there'll be more flashbacks to her and how it all unfolded. I love it. Jarod's going back to the Centre. I can't wait. I always wanted to see him back there while Parker is there, too, long term thing. Make it happen please. Love you!Reviewer: Sammi Signed
Oh snap! Why didn't I find you sooner? I'm on board so late in the game here. I've got many stories to catch up on.
I'm loving what I'm reading and you know what you're doing. The characters are so on point it's scary. It's also amazing, mind you, but it is scary too.
I'm enthralled and enamored of you.
I have the audacity to ask for more. Please. 🥺 ❤️Reviewer: Sammi Signed
You shouldn't be hiding away your gems. Share them all. Please. Bravo bravo bravo!Reviewer: Sammi Signed
A last resort
"Jarod believed that Eminem added another dimension to Beethoven, and that tying Lyle to Margaret's boat, towing him out to sea, and leaving him to die would be a delightful deviation from monotony."
lol. I love it, Jarod's thoughts going from one thing to another. That's the way he thinks.
I love that Jarod wanted some hustle from the app too. We've all been there trying to get our app to call home cos it's an emergency and the stupid app doesn't know the difference between regular calling home and emergency calling home. A scathing review? No one wants a scathing review from Jarod. Do they, Mirage? Do you ever worry about scathing reviews or scathing reviews from the actors? I'm really curious now. I'd be terrified to post my Pretender fics online. I think I'd die if I got a bad review from MTW. But I would like to write some. I don't know how to write at all. You inspire me so much and really make me want to try. Please post more. The characters are ...exactly in character and it's scary the way you do this.
Don't misunderstand me. Feedback is always good, and I appreciate reading everyone's thoughts. That said, I didn't begin scribbling for the reviews. And I would never allow a scathing review to be a roadblock. I'd wonder why the person continued reading, and disregarded my warnings, and what, exactly, they were expecting from something called fanfic. I compare it to expecting fine cuisine from a waffle house, or Monet in a room of a fingerpainters, or Bach in the local pub on karaoke night. Some people are intelligent enough to comprehend those distinctions. Those who aren't-- mm, welp, that's a 'them' problem, so I hope you will post your fics here. Not everyone is going to like everything, and that's all right. They don't have to. You've got this. Thanks.

Heyy, so glad you updated so fast and every word is just so well placed and I love this story. You're a wordsmith! Thank you for the encouragement too. I'm going to post some stories here soon and fingers crossed I don't get that scathing review from that actor lol. I guess I'll be ok if I do.
More of this please.
Yes, post stories. I'll read them all as soon as life slows down a little bit. I wouldn't be concerned about a scathing review. Do what you feel compelled to do, and if someone doesn't like it-- that's a them problem. Not everyone can like everything. You're not going to please everyone, and that's okay. Thanks for reading and reviewing.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
EPIC! I love this chapter. OMG the library. "Contentious ghost and secret passage" and then boom Jarod has secret passages. OMG!! Gothic trifecta achieved. I love it. Damn, girl, you rule. Glad to see you back again too. So much to love. Thank you so much for updating this.Reviewer: Sammi Signed
