You do realize that it is hard to read through tears, don't you? Anyway, maybe she has swine flu? Pregnant? Malnutrition? (She never eats, something I can't understand.) Love this story!



Author's Response:

she is definitely not eating right ( i don't get it either, i love food... even when i am sick...but she's odd that way i guess)

Swine flu is common... of course stress and malnutrition could be factors as well... hmmm

all good theories. just remember, happy ending... 

thanks so much my dear!

Wow, this made me cry but good cry. I'm so glad that Jen's getting some closure.

And I can't help but notice again her reoccuring nausea, mostly in the mornings, can't imagine what that might be :)

Author's Response:

thanks so much my dear. glad it was a good cry. a catharsis of sorts really, she is releasing and freeing herself. closure is good. 

ah her nausea... yeah... we will be addressing that shortly.

thanks so much my dear!

more soon!

MWAH!

How beautiful!  Maybe Jen will get home soon and Rob can see what a mess she is and take care of her for a while.  That would be nice if she would only let him. I have so enjoyed reading this today! Please let Rob take care of her for a while.  Looking forward to the next chapter.  Thank you for the special feeling this story gives me.



Author's Response:

oh we can only hope she can get home soon.. alas, she is in LA till friday... what trouble can she get into before then?

she is a mess, and really does need Rob to take care of her. because that's what couples do, take care of one another when the other is struggling... sigh... 

i guarantee, Rob will be taking care of her soon. he does truly care about her well being.

so glad you enjoyed this chapter. it brings me joy to see how much people are enjoying this journey!

thanks so much!

so i choked up, disclaimer well justified... she's totally preggers huh?  your updates are like molten belgian chocolate cake with salted caramel frozen custard, emotionally satisfying even when you overindulge (ie read 13 chapters in one sitting...)



Author's Response:

thanks hun. i never know with those scenes... always safe to throw in the disclaimer... 

preggers you say? hmmmm. we'll learn more soon... i know, i am terribly cruel... but Jen won't say...

OMG now i want salted caramel frozen custard! that sounds so delish! 

so glad you liked it! i'm off to go find a sweet now!

more soon!

thanks!

wow i still wipeing my eyes :). first off the sexspenders i did not know what they where and goggle while i was reading and let me tell you, his fandom is too much!!!! they had me cracking up at the things they would write. i didnt know that existed! when the story got serious boy did it get serious. it was really beautifully written. thank you so much for updating! oh btw i am still hoping for a pregnant jen!!!

Author's Response:

LOL! oh the sexspenders, as of last week, i was at the top of the sexspenders search, alas they have been popular, and now i am on page 2 of the Google search for sexspenders ( check out Sexspenders and Stoli pictures by holdmeransom for some great pics)  and yes this fandom really is too much. we have a name for everything that boy wears... or does... silly... smirk

so glad you liked the serious. had to be done, hopefully the fun helped lessen the drama.

pregnant jen... we'll have to wait and see....

thanks so much for reading and rating! it means so much to hear from you all! 

more soon!

MWAH!

This definitely was a sad one! I can't imagine being a young widow. I liked this chapter, though, and thought that you portrayed the emotions very well while not getting too deep. I think it was a perfect situation and showed the way Jen has been healing but still isn't whole yet. I LOVED the part when she called Rob and had him talk to Mr. Wright. That was great! As always, I'm looking forward to the next chapter already!! It makes me so happy when I see the email! :)



Author's Response:

thanks so much hun! to lose your love, your first and what you thought was your only love. tough. easier now that she has found Rob, but still to say goodbye, its never easy.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, yeah didn't to get too deep into it, it was hard enough for the folgers chick here.. i'm such a lightweight!

she is definitely healing, and still has a lot of issues to deal with, some that truly needs help in order to overcome... 

ah poor Mr. Wright. she had to set him straight if only for her own sanity...

so glad you enjoyed it! 

more soon!

OK. I cried. But at least I wasn't at work. And having got me all worked up into a crying mood, I then cried at the idea of Jen stepping off a plane and seeing Rob there to take her home too; yes I am so going to bawl when that finally happens!

So before we got to the crying bit (for me anyway) I laughed out loud at the part where Mr Wright does the double take when Robs name finally clicks. It was so funny! And the way he thinks she is a crazy fan leaving all her money to some actor she is obsessed with! Because she is! (why am I telling you? You wrote it!) Any way, I loved it.

I really don't want to know why or how Rob has left a pair of his tousers in the back of his car. I mean, a coat or a shirt  maybe, considering  Rob is always wearing loads of layers, but how does someone take off their trousers and not realise?  Does he carry spare pairs around with him to change into? Is he really that organised? LOL!

Obviously I have now gone slightly deranged. It is the combination of crying over your story, giggling like a fan girl over all the Eclipse stuff that has come out this week and thwarted anticipation over the Emancipation Proclamation update that I now haven't got time to read tonight. (Need to Escape came first!)

I'm sorry that updates may be a little slower ( I'm being polite here, I can't tell you what I really think!) but I do genuinly hope that RL is treating you well.

Take care and see you when ever you are ready. *bites nails in desperate anticipation*



Author's Response:

no... i'm not lurking... not at all...

haha

ok first order... hopefully the update wont be too long. maybe just a couple of days... we're definitely not talking WALLBANGER update span... i'm not the cruel... JS... but if not in 6 or 7 days then in 8 or 9 days... we'll get ya there... believe me, i have no nails left to bite...

ahh so glad you cried, is that cruel? well, i just wanted to make sure my folgers gauge wasn't too far off...and oh Jen stepping off the plane into robs arms... sigh... and sniffle...

So glad you could see the little bit of humor. seriously, i'd need a lot more Captain to get thru this chapter if there wasn't at least a little funny... and poor Mr. Wright.. making the connection...hehehe

the sexspenders... maybe he had them to change into... or maybe he had worn them to a photoshoot, but nicked the pants at the photoshoot.. so he had them as extras.... hmmmm.... heehee

thank you my dearest... i love getting your thoughts !

more soon! promise!

Oh my goodness Steph.  I read your little warning and told myself I wasn't going to cry..yeah right!

Hubby is sitting here watching me blubber like an idiot and says 'Oh that must have been a good one..."  LOL....he has no idea.

That by far is one of my fave chaps you have written.  It was heartbreaking, a little angry and so bittersweet.  Just beautifully done.  I just wanted to go and find Jen and give her a huge hug!

Can't wait for more - and Rob.....so sweet!



Author's Response:

sigh... thanks my dear. i never know... folgers you see... so it means a lot to see that. 

give hubs a hug for me... well not FOR me... youknow what i mean... hahaha

a fave chapter! wow! this one made me a little nervous... so glad you liked it!

Yes I need a hug now!  I knew this would be an emotional chapter so I put off reading it until I could be alone and cry if needed.  I needed!  Yes, I cried.  You made me cry and gave me goosebumps.  But I also laughed out loud at the sexspender pants!  Googled that and saved pics!  Yum. 

Poor Jen.  What a rollercoaster of a day.  And to think that your father in law thinks you are crazy, etc.  But priceless that she called Rob, surprising both Rob and Mr. Wright.  Loved that. 

Jen is so strong!  I am continually amazed by her.  Life just keeps throwing stuff at her and she continually picks herself up and gets on with it.  Yes, she may end up on her butt for a time, but she always gets up.  No wonder Rob loves her. 

Well, I am emotionally drained now.  Not saying that's a bad thing.  It is the sign of a very good writer!  You amaze me with your talent.  Can't wait to read more. 

Well, since i need a hug, I'm sending one to you!  Reading this put me through the wringer.  I imagine writing it did at least that much to you as well.

Jennifer

 



Author's Response:

{{{HUGS}}}

is it cruel that i smile when you say you cried... it makes me feel like maybe the folgers commercials are effecting... so glad you enojoyed the rollercoaster. she has a big lot to tackle, and of course her bit of crazy can only help us along.

Dear Mr Wright... so silly. she is crazy... but not cat lady crazy...

She does have a lot of strength, and she will definitely land on her bum more times than she'd like, but the important thing is she has someone to see her through now.. she had that with her dad, and with mike... and now Rob... fall seven times, get up eight.... it's her mantra in life...

thanks Jennifer, the LA chapters seem to do that to me... what is it about LA? sigh... hugs back, so glad you enjoyed it.

more soon!

Beautiful chapter.  A few tears, but good ones.  Her anguish at seeing her father-in-law again, and her resolve, was truly touching. 

And, her goodbye to Mike was perfect.  *sigh* Really, a wonderful chapter.  Can't wait to see what else awaits her in L.A.  Hmmm... ;)

Looking forward to more, always.

Author's Response:

thanks my dear. so glad you liked her interactions with her father-in-law. a good man truly, just not what Jen can have in her life...

and Mike... hard to say goodbye to a husband. glad you liked it. 

more to come for LA... the city that keeps on giving...

Wow Steph that really was so sad. I sniffled a bit, but tried to be brave!! Poor Jen, I really felt for her. But like she said, she couldn't have done it without Rob. He really does love her. I'm so glad she'll be home soon. Hopefully then she'll get a talking to from mummy Pattz about going to the doctors...

Keep up the good work. Hope RL isn't being too hard on you. Hugs Clare x



Author's Response:

So glad you liked it my dear! teamwork... that's the key... not hiding things from the other, right? that's what's important...

she has a good partner in Rob...she has a few more things to take care of to be sure. and mum Pattz.. well she will have some words for jen to be sure!

*sigh*

Even with our psychic link... and knowing what was coming... there are parts of this that made me laugh, parts of this that made my heart clench, and parts that made me sigh.  I'm not usually a crier (you keep using up all our tears on the Folger's commercials!) but I get this clenchy feeling in my chest.  I imagine that's how the vamps feel when they want to cry.  And that happened a lot.

Mr. Wright.  How sad that she bears such guilt from what happened after Mike died that her relationship with his father became that strained.  Really tragic.  And I giggle-snorted several times as she attempted to covertly introduce a new significant other into her life without actually saying who he was.  Then her relief that he didn't know.  And then the crazy cat lady comparisons!  OMG those were really hysterical, in case you weren't sure.  I can imagine he would think she was off her meds if she appeared out of the blue with that news.

Visiting his grave... I don't know if you watch Bones, but they once talked about visiting gravesites on that show, and I found it to be quite touching.  Some might say I'm "cold" when it comes to them - I have only gone to my father's once, and I have no desire to return.  It's his detritus there, not "him."  I see him more every day in the mirror, or in my strange sense of humor, or in my debating skills, than I would visiting his headstone.  But how do you find those memories with a significant other?  Particularly when the accident that took him also took your unborn child?  You see his face in his father's, but there is no son to remind you.  And if you detach from your life with him, you have no physical reminders.  Poor Jen.

This was beautifully written.  The right balance of sexpender pants, Rob finding out more about his many fans' obsessions via Google, the smelly car, and all the other little bits of life that provide a counter to the pain of what she had to do with Mr. Wright and the unraveled ends of her own life.

Loved it!  Love you.  Can't tell you enough how amazed I am at what you covered here.  Brilliant.  Rob can't even review this one.  He's sitting poolside, smoking.  But you touched him, dearest.  We need a Spinal Tap review rating system, because this one needs to go to 11.

*mwah*



Author's Response:

oh my ET... one of has to be the strong one.. i'll use up the tears all u want!

it truly is tragic that she couldn't continue her relationship with her in-laws. But can you imagine, looking every day at a man who looks like what your husband would look like twenty years later... i couldn't do it.. 

she was trying so hard to be covert, wasn't she? and for him not to get it until he finaly made the film connection.. yes..she is crazy... jsut not cat lady crazy....adn her manic sort of way she tried to handle it all, as she is falling apart... funny and tragic at once...

the grave... see you and i are on the wavelength (gasp...no really?!) for most, i don't see the body as the person..its a vessel and when they go they are gone... in the ether... in heaven , what ever you like to call it... i remember with memory and visual reminders. but yes... like seeing mikes dad was hard by visual, how do you find it all when youhave lost him in such a way, and the intangible grip of losing your unborn. nothing but pictures and memories remain... and really, she pushed all that away, only a few pictures she kept out as a reminder. no clothes (like her dad's clothes) no lock of hair or his uniform. nothing tangible.

glad you liked teh humor amongst the pain... i needed it for my own sanity, and so did jen... she wouldn't share the Blue moon with me... 

so glad i touched him... now push him into the pool and tell him to stop being such a cheeky bugger and help my finish the OTTs without going record long! LOL

love you my dearest. truly and utterly...

Definitely a tough chapter - glad I had kleenex handy.   I hate cemetary scenes.   Between this and Remember Me I think I've had my quota of crying jags for the year.   I think I'm going to hide under the covers for awhile.   Wonder if her out of the blue surprise call will do away with his unannounced surprises - nah.........



Author's Response:

Oh my dearest ruth! i hate cemetaries... plan and simple... of course Forest lawn- like an oasis... spectacular... you forget you are in one... 

but i digress... yes.. they bring out the tears... i think i'll go hide under the covers as well... 

and the surprise call... yeah.. no, he's a guy after all... there's always hope... but don't hold your breath... i know you won't... :)

Funny, serious and sad all in one chapter.

From the smelly crapmobile, to visions of Rob in stoli, sexpenders, sexdrive boots and Rome Rob hair - hilarious to oh my god I just died and went to heaven.  Then we have Mr Wright thinking she must be some crazy disollusional fan and oh so sad saying goodby to Mike.  You took her on an emotional rollercoaster with that one Steph.

So what next, are we going to get to root around in his apartment and find out some secrets.  I'd bet there'd be some interesting shit in there, well if the car can give up the motherload what's in the apartment.

Can't wait to see what you have in store for the sexpenders when she gets back to London.

As always gagging for the next update.  I'll just have to settle for my Robporn stash in the meantime.

Author's Response:

thanks Sharon. i do so love the rollercoasters... and honestly. if there wasn't a little bit of humour in there, Jen would have beaten me to get at my captain morgan...

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!
