My first Pretender Fanfic ever is Her Secret.
What readers won't have to worry about is if a fic I have started will be completed. They always will be. I don't start posting anything unless the story is done and is going through a beta. So more than likely my fics will be short probably no more than 10 chapters and will probably not involve Centre lore.

Hi! I thought I would read through your stories since you so graciously left me a comment in my attempt at a fic. I so liked this story and was hoping you would finish it? Is that a possibility? Please say YES!Reviewer: KSPretenderFan 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.
OMG! You have a way with words Mirage! I was hoping for smut, and you delivered, in a sweet way too. WOW. Keep up with your writing. It is inspiring to us lurkers out here who think they want to write, but don't have the balls to do it.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
And, I would be willing to take your MUSE if she can help me write awesome stories just like you!!
Hi, KSPretenderFan, and thank you for reading and reviewing. You can have the muse. Please, take my muse. Oh, I'm certain you can write stories and I've no doubt you'd easily be better at it than I.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
That was an awesome update. Please finish this soon! I'm on the edge of my seat here . . .Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
D'oh Mirage! Excellent writing as usual, and all in thirty minutes? You're telling me you typed that whole chapter in half an hour off the top of your head? Wowza, you da wo-man Mirage.
Can't wait for the next chapter!Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
30% more hell than the last one is true enough. Gah! Pull my heart out and stomp on it, Mirage. Then stomp on it some more. Twisted is correct, gut wrenching indeed. But damn it, I can't stay away from your writing even though I know the happy ending for MPJ I so desperately want may not happen. *sobs* As always, epic writing.
Haha. I love your reviews. I needed a good laugh today. Well, I don't mean to stomp on your heart, KS, honestly. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing, KS. Your continued support is appreciated.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Awesome update. Just when I think I know where you're going with a story, you pull the rug right out from under me.
Can't wait for the final installment!
Thank you for reading and reviewing, KSPretenderFan, and for all the kind comments.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
What happens when Miss Parker has somebody else to care for? And what if she needs to contact Jarod, but can't reach him? This explores how Miss Parker would finally get out. Post IOTH.
Glad to see you're continuing your fic. Are you going to post more chapters? Can't wait
Yes I am! I'll try to update tomorrow or the day after. Thanks for taking the time to read even though there are some mistakes :DReviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Nothing is ever as it seems... Jarod goes for under cover mission that will turn his life upside down... old friends, lost love and powerful enemies await... Set post IOTH.
I'm totally loving that you are updating your story. And quickly too. Keep it up.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
MPJR. Some dreams just aren't meant to come true. But every now and again, fate deals a wild card.
About damn time for your update! I'm so glad you came back to this story. And I definitely can't wait for more!!Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
UPDATED in 2023 for language correction and chapters distribution. Jarod asks Miss Parker to meet to finally get things straight between them. When they confess their love, they realize time has also come to destroy The Centre. It's the beginning of a journey that lead them to discover pieces of lost memories in a spiral mind rain. Set after IOTH. Recommended for: MPJ Shippers - People fond of flashbacks. This is a story that begins where we left Miss Parker and Jarod. It's about memories and past, but also present, and future. I hope you enjoy it!
I love this story so far. I like that you're tying up lose ends and that there was more to their relationship even back to the beginning.
Thanks KSP. Yep, my main idea was "Hey, what questions didn't have an answer?". So here we are! I hope you're going to enjoy the next chapters too!Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
I love how you portray Ethan as not so much a tortured soul. How he found his way with the help of his mother. This is great. I'm still reading!
Yes, I thought Ethan might be able, just as Jarod, to find his own place in the world. And his mother voice might be very helpful!Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
No matter the twists and turns she made, there could ultimately only ever be one ending.
Hey! Where the heck have you been! This sounds really good. Are you going to finish your other ones?
i'm sorry, i hurt one shoulder and then the other. Typing is very taxing for me, but that one was relatively short and only took two days of on and off work. i did a lot of driving yesterday (it felt like i drove from one end of the country to the other, and i'm in the US) so my shoulders hurt very badly today. i'm responding from my phone because i wanted to get back to you. :) i have PT tomorrow, so i'll see how i feel, and if i'm up to a little bit of it, i'll start typing some of the other fic.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
When Jarod and his clone are presumed dead and further cloning attempts prove futile, Raines is determined to find another way. He finds it in Dry River, Arizona.
Whoa! That was awesome!
Thank you for reading and reviewing, KSPretenderFan.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Wonderful update Mirage. Can't wait for more, as your plot thickens! Thanks.
Thank you so much, KSPretenderFan. It's very much appreciated.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Thomas Gates and Jarod’s friendship hidden story. Everything you ever wanted to know.
How did Thomas find out about Miss Parker? How did he manage to win her heart? And how did Jarod help Tommy to make her fall in love with him? UPDATED IN 2023 FOR LANGUAGE CORRECTION
This was wonderful. I like how you "explained" if you will Jarod and Thomas' friendship and how he got them together!
Thanks KS! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I think Thomas was a nice character. Whenever I heard that call between him and Jarod I thought: "Wow, they were real friends if Jarod called him 'buddy'!". So, here we go! Thanks for reading!Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Life after Carthis. Short independent chapters about different characters.
I love that you made Zoe a strong enough person to leave Jarod. Most of the time when Zoe is portrayed in fanfics she is either clueless or a total bitch.
Glad you liked it! I always thought Zoe was carefree not clueless and it's true that in most fanfics she is the one you just LOVE to see go away!Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Random chance? I think not.
Good thing I checked this site or I would have missed the "dedication". Thanks for writing this, girlfriend. You know I want a sequel right? C'mon! They have to find each other and race off into the sunset with Baby Parker! Please, please, please.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Please read “NICE IS GOOD” first so you know what's up. These 2 stories take on the lighter side of Jarod and Miss Parker—angst and drama set aside, perhaps a plot is also set aside. Oh well…..just having fun with the characters. Thanks for reading.
Wha??? What do you mean complete! You can't stop just when it's getting good! More, more, more please. You and Z2B I tell ya, teasing us desperate MPJ shippers. We want fluff, smut, the good stuff that has been missing from MPJ fics lately.
Great job though. Now, just add another fic or two until the creators let us know what's up and I'll be a happy camper!!!
I said MORE didn't I? Did I say it enough?Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Jarod wants something more.
Yes they do deserve more! Write it so mirage!!
Thank you KSPretenderFan, for reading and reviewing. We shall see. :)Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
"I'm not in the mood for a therapy session."
nice. not telling your BFF that you were going to post this, WTF?
D'uh, of course continue!!!
dude, i'm sorry, i forgot. and it was a whim! and it was like, 4 in the morning, do you want me to call you next time?! hehehe
ok, ok, no need to get all testy about it. sheesh, show a little appreciation for the free entertainment! ;)Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
The Return series.
Whoa. Need more please. And please not Zoe!!
Thanks for reading and reviewing, KSPretenderFan. Don't fear: it will not be Zoe.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
This is a collection of small Madeline one-shots that don't really fit in the Cooking with Madeline universe, but begged to be told.
#1- Madeline & Jarod
#2- Madeline & Jarod
#3- Madeline & Miss Parker- added 10/7/13
#4- Madeline & Miss Parker- added 10/7/13
Yay! Mini-Parker is back. I love Madeline. And I love the playfulness you show with her relationship with Jarod. Can't wait for more!
Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. :) I'll have to keep an eye on for other things Jarod would enjoy! It was fun to introduce him to mini-golf.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Oooh Madeline, you're so sneaky. Glad to see the update! More one shots please! =)
hahaha, yeah, she is... I'm trying to figure out a way for her to have to tell Miss P about all she's being doing and all she knows, cuz I think that'd be really fun to explore. ;)
I'm glad you're enjoying them.
I'm heading off for a bike ride with writing session break again, so hopefully I'll have another one up soon (doing everything in my power to avoid having to kill Tommy!)Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
Part two of The Return series.
Damn Mirage, i love your writing style. It's, it's . . . inspiring. Jeez. do you run a writing school? I wanna write like you!
Thanks for reading and reviewing, KSPretenderFan. Ha, no, I don't have a writing school. I probably need to attend a writing school though haha; maybe with practice I'll one day be better. Oh no, you do NOT want to write this way. You want to write your way.Reviewer: KSPretenderFan Signed
