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 .
I just love this story. It's simply hilarious and always reminds me of the things I like about this show.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm really glad you enjoyed it.
Interesting piece. Sounds very much like something Jarod could think
Would love to see you write a longer story *hint hint, nudge nudge*Reviewer: Manoline Signed
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.'
Nice piece. Would love to read it as the beginning of something longer, feel there is more to say about this 'Hope'.Reviewer: Manoline Signed
Why did that birthing table on Sl-27 need shackles, anyways?
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?
Cute little drabbleReviewer: Manoline Signed
Cute little piece. Disappearing like that is just like Jarod.
Once again ... Thank You Sarah! I had fun with this story.
Reviewer: Manoline Signed
Very intriguing story. Like how it ends. Don't think I've read anything quite like this (that's a compliment by the way)
Author's Response: Thank you Sarah! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I agree, it was a strange one and not my usual type of story.
So few fics really elaborate on the effect Sydney had on Miss Parker, and the special relationship they share. So it's nice to read one for once. And it was a very nice one at that.Reviewer: Manoline Signed
Lovely written. I love the way you used repeated " if she knew him better" throughout the story, it ties it all together. It's very much in character too, which only makes me like it more.Reviewer: Manoline Signed
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.
I'm a sap for prequels, so this of course goes straight to my heart. Very much in character, and sweet.Reviewer: Manoline Signed
This was simply brilliant! *lmao*Reviewer: Manoline Signed
How well you mix a past conversation and Jarod's desperate reasoning is really quite unique.Reviewer: Manoline Signed
Sort of get the feeling this is all the things Sydney and Jarod never say, just think. Very nice drabble.Reviewer: Manoline Signed
Very interesting piece, and a very plausible, Margaret didn't exactly look healthy in IotH.Reviewer: Manoline Signed
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.Reviewer: Manoline Signed
Great way of wrapping Parker's somewhat unhealthy coping mechanisms into one very well written little ball. Especially liked the last sentenceReviewer: Manoline Signed
Beatiful ficReviewer: Manoline Signed
This is the most breathtakingly beautiful and gut wrenchingly awful fic I've ever read. Incredible ending, and you made me cryReviewer: Manoline Signed
Your words sound more like poetry than anything else. Beatiful work, and I hope to hear more form you soonReviewer: Manoline Signed
Great piece! In then end calling her is really all he can do. But I really like the way you explain how he came to the same conclusionReviewer: Manoline Signed
Powerful piece. I love how you build the story, slowly peeling of the layers, always going one step further, one notch darker. Very well done, and plausible.Reviewer: Manoline Signed
I'll admit you had me thinking the rabbit was Jarod there for a while, but it was so much better when I found out I was wrong. Very sweet little story, I always wondered what happened to that rabbit...Reviewer: Manoline Signed
