Thank you for the warning - it was sad.  Great job with it though, that's such a tough topic to write.  And poor Rob, wanting to be there for her so badly.  

I did appreciate the comic relief with all the funny smells of Rob's belongings.  And the sex pants.  Sweet!  

And, i did kind of love when Jen called up Rob during her meeting w/her FIL to prove her relationship.  I kind of wanted to stick out my tongue, too.  

Loved this!  :)



Author's Response:

Thanks my dear... poor Rob indeed. when is Jen going to realise that ROb thinks of her before his career? hmmmm.

ah the funny smells of Rob's belongings... they must smell like boy... and the sexspenders... no decent Rob fic should be left without them! haha!

Poor Mr. Wright... thinking she was crazy fan lady...well if he only knew... 

thanks so much my dear!

more soon!

MWAH!

Obviously very sad, but not as gut wrenching as I thought it could be!!  Jen's mystery "illness" is making me wonder...............

Oh Steph...I am so glad that this updated today (Sunday) and not tomorrow.  The tears were flowing freely, and still are actually.  I've never had to let go of a spouse and can't imagine having to.  Tomorrow will be 4 years since I lost my grandmother (Nana) and I know as painful as that still is, it doesn't hold a candle to this.

Beautifully done.  I am still wondering tho - is Jen going to see a doctor before she goes back to London?  I know, I know...wait and see....  : )

Loved it!

Author's Response:

I am so glad it updated today too. i really fear ya'll that read it at work.... JS... 

Nana was a great lady I know.. she had some great pearls of wisdom. i'll think of her tomorrow for you. 

spouses... yeah... hard to say goodbye to your soul mate... you bury a piece of yourself... 

sigh ... so glad you liked it my dear.. and erm... the doctor... yes, i think she might decide to see someone before she returns to London... but yeah... soon my dearest... 

thanks so much!

This update made my day!!

That was so heartbreaking but needed to be done.  Can't wait to see what's next for Jen.

I cry at Folgers commercials too by the way.



Author's Response:

thanks so much my dear! always happy to make someone's day!

it definitely needed to be done. one chapter closed... more to come... 

sigh... thank you my fellow Folgers girl! i was starting to think i was alone! 

LOL! thanks so much !

I have to say it went better than I thought it would.  I hope she plans on taking the sexspensers pants back with her.  It would be a travesty is she doesn't.



Author's Response:

thanks so much my dear. oh she is definitely taking them back with her... hehehe

i'm glad you liked it... she really did handle it pretty well. we'll see how the rest of the week goes for her...

Ok, so i'm pretty sure Miss Jen is knocked (pregnant if you will). Sorry for not reviewing before, but i just couldn't stop and now that i am at the end of the posted chapters i am. Great story, fantastic characters. I am hooked like a fish at the end of the line. . . I hope that made sense.

So my heart is aching and I was hoping that the next chapter would hit the queue before I finished this one, but I am going to survive.  First I just have to say...

YOU SO ROCK!

Kicking ficNick's ass was just stellar.  And that Joe gets "tickled" in the process proves she was a woman on a mission.  I absolutely loved it.  I could see it so clearly.  Almost heard the sound of fist meeting jaw.  Ahhh, divine.

Rob being Rob, worried about her not getting there even when he provided the transportation, security, and destination.  How cute is that, really?  We do seem to like having our women stay in his apartments without him, don't we.

Finally, when I post chapters 55 and 56, I want you to remember that I was reading this while I was writing them.  Because you'll understand then why I'm unable to say much here except well done and I'm going to have my belt and shoelaces confiscated now.  brb.

ILY!  *mwah*  Errr... six weeks from this very moment, I predict that we shall be on our way to drunken giggling.  Just sayin'.



Author's Response:

Ah my dearest! I know, the little bit of angst and separation is tough. it's coming. 

hahaha... oh you guys... Nick haters... oh wait, i wrote him that way, so i guess i am too? heehee

You know, you really don't want to get On Jen's bad side when it comes to protecting those she loves. She could give Mack truck a run perhaps? I mean, she took Joe by surprise, right? so glad you could see it clearly... heehee... it was fun to imagine swiping that arrogant jaw. 

Oh Rob.... they worry so for each other, don't they? and offering his apartment. I think he'd do that in real life for a significant other, too bad he doesn't have one really to offer, merely eight or nine hotels he frequents. SOMEBODY BUY THAT BOY AN ESTATE IN BRENTWOOD WITH A TALL FENCE AND MEAN DOGS!!!!! oh...sorry.... rant over.

i can't wait to read your 55 and 56... and seriously... between similiar numbers and i am sure twin like scenarios, i am bouncing on the balls of my feet. maybe they will put us in adjoining padded rooms?

i love you ET, can not wait... 32 days..... and then SD better look out... clear a path for our destruction.

thank you for all that you do, and you do so much just by being the great friend and ET that you are. 

mwah!

I have to say, ET, I'm glad I can read these all at once because I don't think I would have handled the waiting well at all.  But of course, you still manage to make me smile.  "It better not smell like boy."  hahahaha!  Genius.  And his response is even better.  "I don't know what boy smells like."  Brilliant!

One of the things she must have gotten from being raised largely by men is the aversion to doctors.  You know, cuz really.  How long has it been?  Denial ain't just a river is all I'm sayin'.  *taps foot impatiently*

The Nick dreams are wild, by the way.  The pain of packing, the reality of only having six boxes.  The Mustang... She needs to get that to LA and replace the BMW.  Of course, now I have the image of driving with one finger, the fear he has even being behind the wheel.  He probably has a POS car because he's afraid he's going to crash all the time. You know, after taking the crash course.  heh heh.

Finally, the way that you've done the phone calls is awesome.  Him asking her at the end of every call.  That's how Joanna is on every business trip.  Even when she knows.  And he is so young, really.  And insecure and scared and in love.  All those things.  I must read on!  I love you, ET!  *mwah*



Author's Response:

thanks hun. I am sick as a dog, so this may be a short one. forgive me?

a lot of angst for ya? being away from the one you love and depend on, i'm glad the ending of his conversations get to you. 

they can never say goodbye. and always, the sad desire to have her home. 

oh the boy smell... you know it... yes you do... can you imagine what his flat must look like? god i hope he has a maid... and can i have that job? 

she has a lot of stress building up on her... and Nick... oh he just won't leave her alone will he? and 6 boxes. really, when it is only what really matters, how much could it be really? she has wiped her life clean twice now... and only one box that is Mike. very sad...

she does need to get that Mustang to LA... its where it belongs really. but Rob isn't allowed to drive it... hehehe he's got to get his own. JS. 

we just might see the BMW here coming up... hehehe

thanks my dear, love you so much. look i got a mini novel out! i am so proud. and hardly any pencils...

This better have a happy ending or I will be very pissed. I've read a few non-happy ending stories and I was very upset for days. Warn me if this is one of them.

Hi Kathy!

but the HEA has been written... not to worry my dearest!

Ok - three days of straight reading has brought me to this chapter.  What an incredible ride!

I have to say that I was not initially interested in reading a ff of Rob and someone other than Kristen.  (Even though I am not exactly a huge fan of hers)  Nevertheless, the plot didn't really appeal to me and I avoided reading this for some time.  Boy, was I ever wrong! 

I love the touch of Knotting Hill as Rob seeks refuge in Jen's Tea shop.  When Rob tells Jen that it took him one minute to change into Leroys jump suit and implied that he was enjoying watching Jen scwirm - I was hooked.

I love how you have weaved in all of the fanfic pics to create the story line.  (Obviously I am guilty of knowing exactly which pictures or events that you were referring to! - Yes, crazy fanfic girl here.

Every character has been developed beautifully in this story and of course Rob is as always, swoon worthy.

I could spend a great deal of time writing about the 50 chapters that I have recently read, however, I'll leave the writing to you.

I will say that this is an amazing story and is certainly in the ranks of MOTU, CWIA and The office.  I'm just loving this.

I hope that Jen's illness will lead to leaving the little boys room untouched in their London home.  Tee Hee!

Keep on writing - Now I need to catch up on On the threshold while I wait for your next chapter update.

 



Author's Response:

thank you so much. i have no words! well... i do.. but you have humbled me to bashful dirt kicking. i am truly honored that you would put me in even near proximity of the big Three! truly inspiring. 

i am glad you are enjoying the little inserts of real life into the story. it's a challenge, but fun to twist about to my musings. 

To hear that the characters read well... well that makes me smile and want to hug you all over again. and Rob. glad you like "my" Rob. 

Truly , your words inspire, i enjoy every comment readers leave. They give me motivation to keep going (and as i just submitted CH55 with the end far ahead,i am only more inspired.)

Hope you enjoy On the Threshold. I update between the two every five or six days, so you shouldn't have to wait to long for each, like getting 2 chapters a week! 

thanks so much for the review and rating! I am so touched that you took a chance and stuck around!

More soon!

Well that was a very satisfying chapter in as much as Jen got to sock it to Nick, big time. He deserved it but I wonder what the real full story is behind all of his actions. Bella will still have a lot to deal with and I can't wait to read more. Hugs!

I am LOVING this story.  It's kind of weird.  I am not normally a fan of Rob stories but I fell in love with this one (especially the whole George Clooney moment LMAO!) as well as the Rob/Missy one you keep pimping.  There was another one called Just this once, but it was removed from the board and only the additional outtakes were posted.  But you write a great story.  Keep it coming!



Author's Response:

thanks so much my dear! oh that George Clooney! le sigh....

I understand about the rob stories, i was scared to post this, until i met a few of the writers. I know some are odd, but there seems to be a real surge of good ones popping up. 

thanks so much for finding this one and taking a chance!

I will admit though that it hurt to see Nick get beaten up, but the reasons are there.  I am glad however that he opened up a bit and apologized. 

This was great!  I think I need to pm you tonight about something. 

Loving every step of this journey.  Thank you for having me along for the ride.

Beautifully done, dearest.  Loved it.  But I'm sad.  Goodbyes suck, separations suck more.  Thank goodness for Mack Truck.  I was hoping she'd get something out of him.  In the end, Nick may write the checks but he works for Rob.  So his loyalties are clear, and it's obvious what's best for Rob.  It ain't Nick.  JS.

Of course, you know I'm about fried from separations.  What is it about this poor man that prevents us from giving him someone who will give up their life to stay by his side at all times?  Oh yeah, that's right, it's our obsession with realism.  Sorry.  Lost my head.

I have to go to sleep or I'd say more.  And you've got enough to do putting chapter 359 on paper to waste time responding to me.  It's almost midnight our time... if I wait to click submit for another three minutes, it will only be 35 days.  But then I won't have anything to crow about tomorrow.

Bringing the big suitcase.  And cookies.  MJ put in a request for cookies.  Like we need it.  If I get on the elliptical now and don't stop for 35 days, I might lose everything I've gained since the writing thing started.  Ugh.

Love you!  *mwah*



Author's Response:

I think if i got on the elliptical in the sauna, maybe i would lose the NTE pounds....LOL! oh we will be a rolypoly mess together...in 35 days!

oh i know you hate those separations! you seem to be separated when i am not, and then together when i go! hahah. dearest Mack Truck. he definitely knows where his loyalties lie. and dare i say he is a tad protective of Jen as well? sigh....

why can't we give him that someone? cuz they would wither and die in his shadow if they weren't their own person... realism sucks sometimes... 

you did an extra chapter than you said you would! haha. so proud of you! i am trying to review and watch leno...hahah...multitasking rob here...

Yay!!!! I don't care if this doesn't mesh with real life or not. I never want these stories to end. I love this story and I hope she really isn't sterile. She never said exactly why she couldn't get pregnant. And if that's not possible, maybe a surrogate or adoption. There's always a way, especially if you have money.



Author's Response:

aww! thanks my dear! so glad to hear that! this story has grown so much since first conception, it is overwhelming the amount of love it receives! it is so inspiring!

ah her pregnancy issues... there is always adoption...and maybe surrogacy... it is true, she never said why she can't... i have kept it vague as she maybe doesn't know exactly what the reasons are. She was told when she was grieving, so that time was hazy for her.

there are always options, with the right amount of money....

Hi, love!  Oh, jealous Rob... what is it about that man that makes him so insecure.  I really hope the Pack gave him what for.  They should have been furious.  He never even told her, she completely entertained them, and he went all CAVEMAN on her?  She's a forgiving soul.  Rob or no Rob, I'm not sure he'd have gotten any that night.  He's very lucky she loves him.

She's not really astute to the signs, either.  I guess when you believe things aren't possible, you just stop looking.  You know what I mean?

The trip to the States... she needs to go and get it done.  I kind of thought Mr. P might volunteer to go with her.  But he's got responsibiities.  Poor Jen.  I'd hold her hand if I could.  So sweet that they can't bear to be away from each other.  Really.

This chapter made my heart clench.  The emotion was so raw.  Loved it.  Would have totally smacked him upside the head, but I loved it.  Well done, ET!  *mwah*



Author's Response:

oh that poor boy and his insecurities, it must be his fumblings with women that make him so insecure to doubt he really has her truly...weee! is it wrong that i am dying to get to this part of OTT? because as loyal as the boys are to Rob, you know they are going to rail on him for treating his lady like that. damn that CAVEMAN rob... 

she is too forgiving...but then again...she is not really herself is she?

oh the signs the signs! you do look over the obvious when you are told it just isn't so, right? it can't be anything else.... right?

going back to the States... oh wouldn't it be nice for Mr. P to go? sigh... and she is so proud and wanting to do things on her own... because she always has... so hard to accept help because she isn't used to having it... sad... and they need each other so much... what will this trip do to them?

so raw its true... i tell ya these we hard to write... so glad it made your heart clench... glad in a want to hug you and tell you it will be ok....

love you my dear. so much!

Hi, ET!  I'm diving back in!  Two chapters tonight, I hope.  I had a hard time figuring out where I left off, so if I missed a review I apologize.  I knew I'd read the last chapter but couldn't remember if it was because you emailed it or I read it online.  And of course I HAD to read HMR and TG watching the telethon.  That will forever be a memory that makes me smile.  Especially because we were so busy yakking that we actually missed the beginning.  Unbelievable!  Thank goodness for DVRs and West Coast feeds.  *sigh*  The night I think I first realized that we needed to search for birth records.

I loved this chapter.  First of all, because I love the way you portray the shave.  How in the world you can make shaving into a lemon is beyond me, but I bow to your awesomeness!  That was amazing.  Even better than the actual result of his shaving, cuz we both know how much the claymation beard bothered me.  "Bumbles bounce!"

Dinner with the family was amazing.  I adore the conversation with Mr. P, and the playful way he ends the discussion.  More importantly, though, the way he recognizes that she's more likely to connect to a father figure.  She's so concerned about disappointing the women.  It breaks my heart.  How hard it must be for girls to lose their mothers at such a young age.  *sniff*  You capture it beautifully and never really harp on it.  It's just there.  Love it.

Love the chapter.  Love you!  36 days.  *mwah*



Author's Response:

YAY! my dearest ET! sigh... i feel like my brain is back! squee! 36 days!

oh the telethon...good times... smiling good times... i tell ya! a night i will always remember as well... "Wait... what... oh crap! its him! Its him!" heehee.....

soooo glad you liked the shave... let me tell ya... wanted to get all shavemaster on the hubs.... you know... research and all....the idea of revealing what was beneath the claymation... sigh....

She really is afraid of disappointing the women, as she spent what short time she did with her mom feeling like she was always disappointing... thank goodness her father was the kind soul he was... you gotta wonder if Mr. P is that intuitive, or if Rob talked with him about Jen's connection to her father... and i can totally see him playing jokester to Rob as well... 

thanks my dearest dearest ET. sigh it is so good to feel ya again... it was like a lost limb i tell you... who knew? 

36 days... can't wait....love you more!

Jen is pregnant. Feeling squishy? Throwing up?  Liz commenting on her boobs...hmmmm.

 

You never really explained, or haven't so far, why she says she can't get pregnant. We know she lost her baby in the accident but no details on any injuries...

 

 



Author's Response:

hmmmm indeed....

i have never really explained, as Jen's memory is a little twisted from that time as well... and as we see it all from her POV, we can only know from her... it was a bad time for her.

Such a good story! I wish Jen would just let Rob know what a mess she is right now so he could help her.  I am reading this chapter from a new home in a new city.  It is comforting to me to have something familier.  Makes me feel not quite so lost.  Looking forward to the next chapter.  



Author's Response:

thanks my dear!

Welcome to your new city! it makes me happy to know this story can give you a familiar in a new town!

you are so right about them communicating... it just might bite her somewhere down the line...
