Title: Chapter 1: In Color

So I'm giving you a standing ovation. I can walk and type on my phone at the same time so it's all good.

I got chill bumps.

I got tears.

Mirage., you are a genius. Like I said in another review of another story of yours earlier you are versatile. I'm over here thinking you're the queen of smut but no, I think that was just to appease some of the readers considering how much you don't ship Jarod and Parker and say you hate writing smut. This was beautiful, succinct, poignant. It's so Angelo.

 

"And yet, in his waking hours, the vents surrounding Angelo undulated in shades of grey and silence. 

Grey.

But he dreamed in color."

I'm so blown away. In tears. You made me weep.

Title: Chapter 1: Going Down in Flames

Wait what? You are versatile as... Jarod. Are you a pretender, Mirage? Where has this been all of my life. I love this. I hope you don' t mind me having a Mirageathon over here but you're addictive and you're the one author that holds my attention and keeps me coming back.  My God tho Woman you have written a masterpiece.

 

"No," Murmured Jarod, his voice strained and tremulous, the command directed not at Parker, but at himself. Jarod wouldn't regret his disobedience, the absence of discipline, propriety's fierce and glorious death."

"Surrender burned white hot, tasted bittersweet; the blaze roared through their bodies, their condemned hearts.

Moral atrophy felt strangely righteous.

There was an abject honesty in the collapse of convention, a brilliant truth in the lies they had been told.

Logic defied logic; the pieces fiteven if they weren't supposed to."

Holy hellfire! Compelling and brilliant. You've outdone yourself.You always outdo yourself. And then that song at the end by Muse, one of my fav bands, to crown it all off. You're the queen.

checking in...are you ok??? not mad just hoping all is well and if you need an ear...you got my email ady from all the times I reviewed you that way.

you've always been there for me and many of us... to listen, advise, help with fics

, and you would listen and help anyone even Jarod 😉😜..and every now and then maybe you

need someone too??? I love this story and will patiently wait . take care of you.



Author's Response:

Hi, Jami. Ur. I'm-- here in this moment. Being honest. It's kind of you to ask. I hope you're well, and yeah, same. Take care of you, too.

Yes, of course, anyone in the fandomly can email me. I'll play along and indulge you: if Jarod existed, and for some reason emailed me--  yeah, I know who you mean (your wink emoji gave you away) and, yes, he, too, has permission to email me. I'm not certain that I'd believe it if it happened, but, sure, why not?

Thank you for reading and reviewing, and your sweet words. Be safe.

Oh yeah! You boldly go where no one has before. I love this. Some of us ship incest ships because the of the way series on tv played with incest and planted the thought in us. Your end notes were spot on. Lyle and Jarod should be siblings and should be together. But Jarod being Parker's bio dad is freaking awesome too. You kind of make me sick how well you write and how addictive you are. I need to be writing my own fics instead of reading yours over and over! Rah! Let them be bio father and daughter. Let them stay together. I love it.

Ohhhh so they are having sex regularly now. Owwwih mi gerd. I'm so in love with this story, and your ability to bring the characters to life. It's just like watching them and there can be only one Jarod and one Miss Parker and that's Michael T. Weiss and Andrea Parker. Keep going please. Someone needs to have regular sex if they are fictional characters. I'm envious. Seriously though you write them beautifully just like I remember them and you keep me excited for this series! There is hope that the actors will bring us the ending we want as long as the series never dies. Keep keeping it alive. I beg you.

Hey queen ‘‘ so no one has heard from you and  I'm hoping to hear from you when you have a chance. I know you probably aren't ok. Just really wanted to let you know I'm thinking about you. Love ya friend.



Author's Response:

Hi. Yeah, I was just reading the reviews, and most of my response to Contessa's review (scrolling down) is missing, and I should have confirmed it posted correctly then, but I didn't, so to clarify, the short of it is most everyone becomes disabled to some degree of severity if they aren't already, even if only temporarily, and regardless of age, and Significant Man has been a disabled person for quite a while (I think that much was clear in my response, or some of it maybe?).


Things have turned. Worse. I think the "care taker" language maybe made that much clear.
Now I think I've sufficiently explained my absence. I hope.

I intended to sit, check in, post something, but--- then I just didn't sit at all for a while. I think entirely too much when I sit.

I've been reading (while standing) quite a bit, and apparently (if the brochures aren't lying) it's a good idea for caretakers to establish and maintain a quiet hobby (such as knitting) well in advance of further decline in their loved one's mental and physical health that can be performed at the loved one's bedside. The only established quiet hobby I have is scribbling fanfic. Knitting seems like it would require effort and thought and concentration. Ugh. I need to do something that requires fast typing and little thought.

I didn't know when I was first dared to post something here that scribbling fanfic would become, twice in my life, the big hobby/distraction/escape-from-reality thing. *shrugs*

Love ya back, friend. Thank you for your kindness.

Thank you for checking in, and oh...bless ...you didn't have to explain anything to us. You have a clear voice. We knew it was bad and no one expected you to have to explain. We weren't expecting a story either, but should have been because the nature of the situation means you have time and need to do something quiet to filland you're not a telly watcher.  I think it's good to have a hobby too, something you can do quietly and I think it will keep your mind active and give you something to think about, and this fandom especially is helpful. I encourage you for selfish and unselfish reasons.

I think it makes sense that this fandom would be the distraction and with the mental health elements and compassionate moments I think this is the best series you could happen to have as hobby to write.

I think it will good for you. Reading you has been good for me.

 

Your words are like therapy. You are real, honest. You aren't afraid. You confront issues that most run from and it helps me.

You were always meant to write this series. I'm not surprised at all that this series found it's way to you...even tho you never watched telly. It finds the people who need it I believe.

Been really worried about you. You have so much to do and I know it's stressful and painful. Keep taking care of yourself too and I wish you and your SO well.

I'm glad your surgery went well, and ... omg your egg donor sounds like a terrible person. You deserved better treatment and love, not that from the woman who gave birth to you. .I wish no one had asked .. I asked and others asked but none of us were thinking child abuse...I thought maybe car accident... I'm so sorry.. OMG. but I'm glad you seemed to have made peace with it. You're really healthy and I'm proud of you for not trying to protect her.

Stay healthy. Let us know how things are going.

Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4

Oooh o oo! So Parker takes Jarod in?! Oh, wow. He's not going to break back out in the next chapter is he.. it's always disapointing when he doesn't get to stay for awhile.

So I'm trying to unbox all of this and... what a perfect gift box you've arranged for us Mirage!! THANK YOU AGAIN before I continue...

So... in the second sentence we see that Parker is in disbelief just like Jarod is. She can't believe it's happening either ... suggesting she didn't expect Lyle to show up. She thought she'd break Jarod out and... let him go?? She's always let Jarod go. It's like their thing, their unspoken arrangement. She caught him, brought him to her house for the hypnosis and let him walk away.... which was hella surprising for someone who wants him back so bad so this... her disbelief in the second sentence is based on always letting him go.

Her next move is to give him fuel...his goal is fuel too, again both of them are insync with his plans to have the energy to escape.

She's got so much confusion in her mind...trying not to answer his questions, just wanting to get through it. Then he asks if she thinks he's dangerous after Carthis, she interrupted before he talked about the almostKISS, and I think she's disassociating here, but I also think... maybe she wonders if Jarod's guilty? Do you know in that episode where the Centre locks down and Briggie plans to blow up Mr. Parker's helicopters... Parker had to hear and see her MR Parker cry for Catherine before she continued on to save his life. This theory goes along with Parker always talking about the emotional umbilical between Sydney and Jarod and Jarod jumps right in to ask about snapping. I think Jarod not wanting to talk about Miuna when Parker mentioned her could have been misinterpreatated by Parker as Jarod not caring about the girl.

The verbal assaults are the same fear-anger chain reactions we've seen in the past from them. Jarod went a little too far tho cos he's desperate and we've seen Parker visibly wounded before like that, and it would hurt something awful when she's already vulnerable like this.. with her plans being messed up by Lyle's arrival and her not believing the reality that Jarod's going back to the Centre, and with this girl's brutal murder, too. We've seen before on the tv that she has a lot of sympathy and humanity for someone who is supposed to be so bad ass so this murder would bother her. Parker is right about ending up like her mother, and was right in the car limo in Scotland too. They were surrounded by guns, outgunned.

Lyle was perfectly in character, too. Wow. Amazing, Mirage.

That last line means Jarod will be giving them big trouble I bet. I can't wait. Jarod back in the Centre. No last minute escapes, gun fights, or his dad swinging in like Tarzan. Brilliantly done.

Oh, snap! I love how crime-mystery-suspense this is and in this day when police brutality is everywhere it's appropriate. I love that Miss Parker is take-no-prisoners. You always put these characters where they need to be in a plausible and sometimes frightening way. *BOWS* Please write more of this and please please add a Forces of Nature and Cirlces of Hell sequel and continue Devil's Advocate and The Return.

Please update this soon. It's so freaking intriguing and I want to know more about the woman Jarod met.  I have a question for you. I'm thinking about how it is to meet the actors from this series. Are they nice? Friendly? Were you scared to meet any of them? Is Michael scary or nice? I really want to meet him. I'm really nervous about meeting him. Is he scary or anything?! Tell me what to do please....and please please update your work.



Author's Response:
Nice, yes. No, I wasn't scared. None of them seem scary.
 
I can't tell you what to do, Jami.
 
If you're too nervous to meet them you don't have to. No pressure.
If you want to meet them while also being nervous it's certainly an option.
Or if you one day decide that you want to meet them more than you're nervous about meeting them that's okay, too.
If you want to unpack, demystify, and resolve what you're nervous about that's cool, too (some people are shy, some people don't know how to approach them, it's the fame thing that worries some people, and a couple of fandomly members have mentioned being intimidated by taller people. No one's judging).

Thanks for reading and for the review.
