Bio:

Author: I write a little bit of everything really. Some angst, some comedy, some neither. Basically what I'm in the mood for. I haven't written all that much lately, but I do have a couple of stories planned...

Beta: I also do a bit of beta work and find it thoroughly enjoyable. So if you need a beta, just give me a poke and I'll see what I can do. (Strong points: characterization, plotting, rewording etc. Weaker points: grammar and other rule bound things. )

Reviewer: I try to review everything I read, because I really do believe communication is what makes this fandom not just shrivel up and die. Feedback is especially important in a fandom as small as ours. Not only is it important to encourage the authors, and one review really makes a lot of difference. As an extra boost for all you budding reviewers here, since it is such a small fandom you have a real chance of influencing the future plot of the story by making suggestions of what you'd like see happen (or if it's an already completed story: The writer's next story).

But it is a two way street. Like a reader has a responsibility to write a review, the author has a responsibility to reply.) If you don't, how is the reviewer supposed to know someone appreciate it, or even read it?

Reader: I will read (and enjoy) pretty much everything. From angst to comedy to all that is in between. I don't care who (or what, this is the Pretender after all...) you ship, if you're a fan of happy endings or not. If it's Pretender, I would probably love to read it, if I haven't already.

 

And no, I'm never brief .

Summary: Jarod's thoughts as he's running from Miss Parker and The Centre. The funny things that run through your mind when you're trying to escape the clutches of an evil corporation hell bent on capturing you so you can perform experiments to further their agenda. Now if that ran through your head it might not be funny but disturbing.

Interesting piece. Sounds very much like something Jarod could think

Would love to see you write a longer story *hint hint, nudge nudge*

Title: Chapter 3: Part Three: The Fandom

Oh this was just great!

I laughed, I cried (though the crying was more due to the fact that I chocked on my sandwich from laughing so hard). But most of all I recognized both myself, the fandom and our beloved Pretender in just about everything you wrote.

Sometimes we hate it, most of the time we love it, and somehow you managed to gather all our reasons into one hilarious guide.

I love this story. Very fitting as Miss Parker's musings.  

Great line: 'In that maze of fear, hate and survival, they had lost each other.'

I like the idea of telling the untold story of the shackled birthing tables in SL27. And very nicely executed

By the way, how's that sequel?



Author's Response: Hi Manoline.  Thanks for your kind words... just got back into my Pretender obsession, and am back to writing.  Madeline was demanding another story, so I'm working on that right now, but we'll see if I can work on this one, too.  =)

Title: Chapter 3: Welcome Sydney

I don't think I've read the previous version of this story so I don't really have anything to compare it to. But I like this story regardless. It's an interesting change that Jarods capturer is so young, both physically and mentally. Grace is so naive, and yet takes violence completely for granted, which is a very interesting combination. Looking forward to many more chapters.



Author's Response: thanks so much, there should be some more coming soon i hope (just waiting for the co-author bugs to be ironed out)

Title: Chapter 1: Seventh Time Had Better Be A Charm

Like the others here keep mentioning, I keep coming back to this story. Usually I am not a big fan of shipper fics as I mostly cannot make it work with the situation they are both in, but since it is AU, and the way it is AU, just makes it work.

 Great story, in my opinion one of the best. Thanks for sharing.
