Summary: A twisted and humorous tale of unresolved issues, questions and answers. And sweet revenge as Miss Parker and Jarod settle unfinished business. Rape and Slash are more implied....nothing what should keep you from reading... more a light warning!

Title: Chapter 1: one

It is hot in here. I think the person that said any relationship Jarod and Parker have would be unhealthy. This fact doesn't change that this story is hot. That sex was hot.

Title: Chapter 1: In Color

Like it? Mirage my heart just hurt me and there are big bumps all over me. This was powerful. Very poignant. You know all of these characters like you created them. Angelo would most want to speak with music! :) The colors of music and the colors of his friends was genius. This is my favorite story ever so far! That last lines

"vents surrounding Angelo undulated in shades of grey and silence. Angelo's world was dull. Not vibrant, not clear. Not black. Not white.

Grey.

But he dreamed in color."

It is breath taking.

Do you play music by chance?



Author's Response:

I do; I play piano and guitar, and used to beat on drums a bit; I want to be absolutely clear: I don't do anything absolutely correctly, or well. I play piano about as well as I write: "very ill indeed"; however, there was a time when I could read music and play piano very well; I've never played guitar or drums well at all. Thank you for reading and for the lovely reivew, Sela. You are too kind.

Title: Chapter 13: XIII

I don't know the words after reading this from the start! I was unable to get away when I started reading chapter 1. ;) :) This was beatiful and scary!!! I feel like I must have more now..the addiction I am to your writing. I can't wait to see what Jarod will do now? Will he kill Miss Parker? I think he will! Don't let him please! I want the rest please!



Author's Response:

No, Sela, Jarod is not going to kill Miss Parker. I'd have to kill him if he did that, and in a rather agonizing and unorthodox manner that involves a complete dismantling of anatomy beginning with (but where else?) his toes and skin, respectively. I better stop thinking about that before the Muses overhear and that little devious light bulb over their heads brightens. You shall have the rest in time. Thank you for reading and reviewing.

The way you introduce us to new places and people. Genius. Always original and that can't be easy in a fandom as old as this one. More, please.

Title: Chapter 1: Content

This is so satistying and has aged brilliantly. It's my favorite Pretender story of all time. Any chance that I can bribe a sequel out of you. I love Jarod's "I've half a mind to introduce myself."

I can see that and I understand. Having sex with him would be so stunning. They were both so stunned and so satisfied. It's hot. I love it. I love that it's not just smut too. Real emotion just like on my dvds, and a plausible crime scene and reason for them to meet up that way. I love it. Can't say it enough. Mirage you should be writing novels.

Title: Chapter 9: Refuge

Usually I call every sex scene you write hot hot hot and this was still hot in a more intimate and meaningful way. All the shippery goodness in this Mirage makes me so relaxed feeling. They love each other so much. I don't know if I'm more touched and crying because Jarod was crying and said he was sorry or if it's because Parker wouldn't even touch him because she didn't want to do anything he didn't want to do and we know his reasons for not wanting to have sex yet was for her and that she might get it all confused in her mind again with that whitman bad person. So Jarod caught her fingers as her hand was pulling away and I can SEE that happening and all of it. Oohhhh! I can't stop crying with my happiness at this. Please more. Please please please! You just won the fandom again.

Mirage Mirage Mirage Mirage. I've sat staring in space for some long while. It's one of those kinds of chapters you know? I'm here speechless. There was no warning. If you could put a warning on this it would help people like me. This is really scary. I felt like I'm there with Sydney or that I am Sydney. Wooh. The writing is out of this world amazing as always. The content is dark. Those things on Sydney give me the creeps big time. I need to read more to make sure Sydney comes out of this alive. I don't see how he will. I'm so scared. I want more.

Title: Chapter 14: Chapter 14

Wow. Your writing and story telling skills have always been polished and professional and also mature but you've taken it all to a new level with this story, and this chapter. Your descriptive work is second to none, the transitions are seamless, the dialogue is brilliant and best of all the characters are the characters. I can feel the yearning for the absent mother, I can feel Jarod's yearning for Parker. I even feel sympathy for Lyle which is new and unexpected because I had labeled him evil and labeled Jarod good and gave all of the characters labels and put them away in their right places. You made me ME feel sorry for Lyle. Even without the torment that you implied Ray inflicted, Lyle was an innocent child stolen from his mother at birth and mistreated terribly. If I blame him for his actions I have to blame Ethan for his and Kyle's for his. If they can be redeemed Lyle can be redeemed. I love this backstory you filled in, with Lyle being forced to hurt Emily and his explanation fits with what we know already. Parker did have the good luck of faking Jacob's murder easily. It just works the way you write it and I love it. I hope everything is good in real life. I kind of worry when you're gone for too long. Take care of yourself and thank you for this. Congratulations are in order. You earned it.

This is beautiful. What I love most about your stories is how much soul and heart they have in them. It's so sad when a series has no soul and what I loved most about the tv series is all of the soul and heart in the episodes and characters.  It's the same feeling when I read you Mirage. Thank you.

Oo. I don't have the words now. I have a processing issue and have to think for a while before I know how to say in words how I feel. This is so good Mirage that I have tears in my eyes. I think you are a romantic. I know you're not a shipper but you know how it is. The way you have Jarod talk about time and how time isn't a measure of love or relationships. It's just time. Just like that Culture club song says. I recognize my characters when I read you. You won't ever know what that means to a fan like me that has been so touched and impacted by The Pretender. You keep it alive and keep me coming back for more. I'm so greedy for this.

Title: Chapter 1: Refuge in Reverie

I'd like to see everything in the Mirarchives please. Like now if that's cool wit ya. This is ... it's heartbreaking but it's genius because what did Sydney say in one episode.. like the mind is capable of anything to protect its host and if Jarod really needed to go ... he would like you know... go. He said he escaped to places in his mind to survive and if he thought his simulations were killing people and if he really needed to get out and was physically stopped ... then yeah... he would totally do this. It's plausible and it's ... OMG you just bested yourself and everything and why aren't YOU writing the novels? Your mind is just...your outside the box and over the box and rip the box up thinking and hey blow the box up thinking is just amazeballs. This is my favorite ending of all time ever of anyone's period and hands down. Thank you for sharing with us even if you had to be begged to go back and find the early stuff and even though you should have shared it with us immediately. Mind Blown.



Author's Response:

No, no. The Mirarchives can only be accessed by me. It's dark in there. I suppose it is heartbreaking, and, for Jarod, frightening. I suspect Jarod will likely unravel a bit when he realizes what the muse has done to him in this NONpretend-verse. It is tempting to leap in and explore.

Thank you for reading and reviewing, Sela.

Author's Response:

"Steal him from the police" was her plan all along, I think.

Wait. You want Parker and Jarod to be together? Together inside the Centre, you mean? With Parker in charge? And Jarod running simulations? Parker with a whip? Jarod on his knees? Or-- like, together together doing adult stuff in bed?
