Title: Chapter 6: Playing with Fire

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.

Title: Chapter 1: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

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.

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.

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!

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

"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.



Author's Response:
Scathing reviews? No, it's not something I worry about. That said, I wouldn't blame anyone for leaving me a scathing review. I probably deserve one, a brilliantly composed, and sternly worded one, in fact.

And then, of course, I'd fulfill the ages-old prophecy by responding with the sacred and thoroughly unfathomable incantation,
Ohhhh yes, yes review me again, review me harder, yes, mmmm mmmake it scathier, Mommmmy!


Generous reviews terrify me a little bit, however. I hope that people are reading real literature, real fiction, historical nonfiction, educating themselves.

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.



Author's Response:

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.

Just in time for Christmas and a hell of pressie too. Thank you Mirage. It's always a joy to read you. You know the characters well and infuse each scene with plausibility and meaning. This got seriously intense but not in a bad way or anything. Jarod does this, begins shrinking her sometimes. I remember Keys and his "especially traumatic ones" and Parker over there tied up basically cringing with each word he said, rejecting his words. I love your continuity of plot and throwback to earlier times. I love the suprrise too. A second kiss! My god. and her wanting to get it over with! That's SO like little Miss Parker. I want more. I love the story, plot, descriptive work, and the characters of course. You nail them. I'm wishing you love and a happy rest of the year and a happy every year after to you and your people.
