jeez, i hope RL rob isn't so whiny and insecure.  i can understand some of it, but your rob just seems to take it to a whole new level.

LOVED the roundabout scene!  hahaha!  i'd be the same way.

love clare -- the perfect mother hen.  even "tell my son to call me more" -- LOL

the birthday bracelet was very romantic -- rob gets major points for that

and grizzly adams -- oh steph, you slay me!  gotta love the scruffy robporn, tho!

please update again soon.  i've hit a bit of writers block with my own, perhaps from having been away from it for so long, so i need more to distract me!  and i am still sticking to my vow of "no OTT until another chappie is written by me".  help a girl out?  btw, i have chap 3 of my own being validated as we speak!



Author's Response:

HAHA! i hope so too! although, you have to admit, he's under some pressure with this new territory of having someone in his life. Still. young boy needs a little grow up time.

Oh Roundabouts... I hate em...

clare, i simply love her, real, imagined, whatever. I love her. and i can totally see her saying that, even though he is five minutes away.

Glad you liked the bracelet. I beat my head for hours trying to think of something simple, yet perfect. Jen is really hard to get gifts for! LOL!

hehehe Grizzly Adams. that boy should never get more than a half inch of scruff.. it should be law... 

Oh no with the writers block! Update will be soon i hope, after another OTTupdate. 

but excited about chapter 3 of yours! YAY!

thanks my dear! 

more soon!

MWAH!

Oh, emotional chapter..... 

Loved this line... "As long as there were no regrets about what I couldn't be as a woman, I could take on the world".  Hitting a little close to home for me.

and their first fight!  I'm glad Jen finally got fed up with him - he does have issues, but just like many boys (and girls - no judgment here!), he forgets what others are going through... and probably feels really petty when he realises how insignificant his issues really are in the big scheme.

<3 to you Steph!

- Terri



Author's Response:

thanks terri,

very emotional. we're gearing up for so many things, yeah? 

"what I couldn't be as a woman".... what she must learn is that she is more a woman by her courage to continue on and love so much than anything biological. A woman should not be judged but what she can or can't do. She is all woman. And Rob sees that. 

 

oh their fight. they are so intune with each other, and yet they look over so much! haha. he's young, and must learn there are worse thigns in the world. I think we are all guilty of that oh poor me, oh ooops, yeah yours is worse....

It's a good thing they have each other to sound off on. They both could use some growing... 

thanks my dear!

safe travels!

MWAH!

loved this chapter...you had me giggling the whole time Jen was going around and around in the car, to fricken funny.  So glad Rob's mom was ok with Jen not being able to have children.  And I also loved the fact that George Clooney thought Jen was feisty....but to me in real life George seems as down to earth as Rob does.



Author's Response:

HAHA! Roundabouts... they CAN be hilarious! LOL! Ah Clare. you know she must be the most wonderful lady, at least here. I am sure she is great in RL too. So supporting...

Oh George, I bet he can cut up with the best of them, but at the end of the day, he's a kick back with a brew and a smile... gah!

Okay, now I am a little more pacified. It's like an addiction! I feel like a druggie going, 'one more chapter, just one more chapter' and then I get to the end and am like, 'Noooooo! One more!' Exciting! Hehe. Jen trying to drive on the other side of the road. Hilarious!

Sexcapades, drama, Clooney, Oh My!

How can you make this any more exciting?

I'm sure you'll find a way. ;P

UPDATE SOON!!!!



Author's Response:

AHHHH. not such a bad cliffy that time, yeah?

I sprinkle the chapters with the stuff they put in Pringles. you can't stop with one... LOL!

Oh driving in England! Could be fun... or absolutely terrifying! Those double decker buses drive way too fast! LOL!

OOH! a challenge for more!

mmm Robporn now that something to mull over frequently.

I love these long chapters, loads to pack in from George to loving to sadness to angst then onto loving and straight into the funnies.  Keep the long chapters coming.

Really loving this story.

I'll be scanning my inbox everyday for the next Need to Escape & On The Threshold updates Steph.

P.S  I still think she is pregnant.  You can tell me I'll keep your secret. lol. :)

mmm. Robporn... poor man... if he knew... well. i am sure he does....

Hi Hun!

Oh, such a wonderful chapter!  Jen-struggling to find a new life with him. I loved this..."Wrap up my nonexistent life there for my holding pattern that was a life here."-So powerful...she's kind of in limbo right now, not knowing where life is going to take her, still worried about not being able to have children-and he's equally worried-about her leaving him-even after everything that's happened.  So emotional and real. 

Keep on writing, because we will read and love every single word.

Cheers, Leslie

 



Author's Response:

Thanks Leslie!

She is definitely in limbo, but hoping for something more substantial now that Rob has re awakened some of her passions. And maybe even started new things.

they have their frailties, each of them those little insecurities they need to conquer.

thanks so much my dear!

more soon!

Steph - What a fantastic chapter and it came along just when I needed it!  I've had a CRAPPTASTIC week and needed a giggle and a smile SO badly!!  I just love these two...  : )

            "Jen, we can never be everything to our significant other. We try to be, but it simply can't be. We are everything we can be for ourselves, and they love us for that.  He loves you for everything that you can be.

Damn it Clare! You are officially the world's best almost MIL...spot on advice, and definitely what Jen needed to hear. You can see how Rob managed to turn out so well...

These two never cease to amaze me in the bloody kitchen...even though there was no defiling this time, they still managed to avoid eating an actual meal in there! I think the sexin' has outnumbered the eating by this point!

Jen sure was feisty in this chapter! I think it's important to show him as an actual 23 year old guy...who will f*** up on occasion. There will be times where Jen will feel like she's dealing with a child...good to recognize it and make sure you can handle it.

I, for one, am grateful that the chapters keep getting away from you...cause it just means that OTT will be even longer...heeheehee!

Love ya girlie! With so much going on in this chapter, you did a really awesome job tying it all together.

HUGS!

~Tracy

 



Author's Response:

I can only imagine how supportive Clare must be to her family. and to include Jen in the mix... she is lucky to have such loving support.

I think they have eaten more cereal than real food... and now really. jen should really think of a multi vitamin if she isn't going to get her vegetables...

She was feisty... but then again.. you know what its like with kids... you reach a limit.... and the snark happens... you go JEN!

haha. OTT is going to be the longest ever! *shakes head* 

thanks so much my dear tracy. these chapters get longer and thicker... snicker...really i need to step away from the smut....

ok...so I have to admit that usually when an update hits I'm all over it...it hasn't been a great two weeks and I floundered a bit and missed Jen's birthday.  This story always makes me smile or cry or laugh.   

You are so right- he did look like Grizzly Adams!  I just hope she sent Rob one of the Rome pics or maybe even one of the MTV Video awards ones - ya know the ones where he's gives his favorite swear word!  So damn hot.



Author's Response:

Hi Hun! real life happens, wasn't it nice to have a nice thick bit of Rob to finally come to... ok.. i couldn't keep from snorting the whole time i wrote that... LOL!

oh poor Rob and his Grizzly Adams... he looked nice on camera. but the paps shots... LET THE SQUIRREL GO! hahah

she sent him a few rough and stubbly ones... of course as soon as she linked him... he could see them ALL... every.last.one.

there's alot there... silly number one fan.

I woke from a breif sleep to find chapter 49 on the screen waiting for me   I Love Doug

you have out done your self my dear now  I have to work in the kitchen red rimmed eyes

that must of been so hard for you to write  I hate that word broken damm her she is the other half of his soul she need to see that   and what is this a stash of robporn I will show you mine if you show me yours   lol     love you bunches  

we are adding you to tonights topic as we speak    22 in all coming  dougie doing ribs and chicken         I ll save you some if you give me more   i ll even feed them to you damm it      from Doug    "SHE SAID SUCK "HEHE

 

 

 

 

 



Author's Response:

LOL! I tried to sneak it in there while you were napping! HAHA!

sorry for the red rimmed eyes. it was a long one... with lots to deal with.

The topic of her infertility and how she is perceived is very important to me. for every woman who has had to deal with this. I don't want to tread lightly, nor be too flippant about her emotions. She has to get beyond the feeling of inadequacy and brokenness. Hopefully with Rob and Clare's support, she can begin to see she is a whoie being just the way she is. 

Broken and damaged are two of my least favorite words when dealing with this subject. It's why she needs to deal with this. thank god she finally spoke with Clare and Rob about it. holding it in makes it worse. you make assumptions, which make it worse. 

I sent you Jen's rob porn link... Tell Dr. Doug it's nothing personal. If he had paps following him, I am sure I'd have a folder for him. LOL!

thanks my dear! of course now i want Ribs for dinner.... sigh...

MWAH! and kiss kiss!

Reviewer: EdwardianVelvet (Signed) · Date: May 07, 2010 06:59 PM · On: Chapter 49- Suck It Up

great chapter..

a woman unable to have children is NOT broken, damaged or less of a woman and a woman who chooses not to have children is not less of a woman. A woman is more than her biological function.

Jes saying

Clare was great, really sensitive and understanding



Author's Response:

you are ABSOLUTELY right. now Jen just needs to see that in herself. she has alway been a giver, so to not be able to GIVE something that she feels is important to this family makes her think this. that and the fact of what she went thru.

she needs to hear it from those she loves. She IS perfect in who she is, in whatever way she is. 

Fertility and the psychological issues of not being able to have children are difficult and complex to discuss, let alone write. I hope i am close with how i feel about it. 

There is nothing less about her because she can't bear children. But we often encounter this stigma because of it. And with todays breakthrus in medicine, it seems the gap in understanding is growing. Which is sad, when you see how many children are out there waiting to be adopted, fostered and cared for. 

I could go on and on... but I agree. she is not broken or less of a woman for it. We just need her to some to terms with it. 

Hopefully she can now that she sees that Rob and Clare support her. 

thanks so much my dear. It's difficult to write.

more soon.

MWAH!

God, I love this! Finally got around to reading it--it's fricking AWESOME!

Whenever I got to the end of a chapter and it was a cliffy I was never so glad that this story was already so far along when I found it. Then I got to this chapter, realized it was the last one and was like 'Oh my god, please don't be a cliffy, please don't be a cliffy'

And you pull out George Clooney on me. You. Evil. Woman.

Lol, did not see that coming--then again I rarely predict what you have planned. Except the sex seems to always be there. After 48 almost-continuous chapters of it I'm sure all your readers are well read on how insatiable this couple is. I AM TEAM ROBJEN!

We should print shirts, wear them to the Eclipse premier and watch people look at us like we are complete nutjobs. *Scoffs* Coming from the crazy teenagers begging for RPatz to bite/marry them? 

It's a great plot, character development, and I am completely captivated by your writing! UPDATE SOON!

(hehe, I was about to press SUBMIT and then I remembered the stuff you put in your Chapter End Notes. LOL. Okay, SUBMITting now :))



Author's Response:

Thanks so much Roe!

It is wonderful to find a story well established so you can just hit that glorious next button so you can avoid waiting for the cliffy. 

Yeah...*blushes* i pulled  George on us... hehehe. I have said once or twice that I am evil. :)

I am so glad after 48 chapters I can keep you on your toes. It's a challenge, but with such great readers, it inspiring to try. They are quite insatiable, it's tru. I have taken up drinking cranberry juice just for Jen's benefit....

LOL! you mean you DON'T have a ROBJEN shirt?! *as i sit here sipping my Darjeeling in my fathers Pj's and RobJen shirt* hahaha no i dont really have one... that would be hilarious though, especially for Eclipse.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Hearing from you all about how much this story captivates and moves you is so meaningful for me. It keeps me inspired.

I make it a point to update at least once a week. i am an impatient reader, so I try to "Do onto others" by keeping the updates quick.It's the least i can do for such great readers!

thanks for SUBMITTING (heehee) and for reading and rating!

more soon!

oh, rob.  sometimes i forget how young you truly are.  sigh.

kudos to jen for telling the 3 to mind their business!  now if only rob could remember to stop those damn surprises...

and i'm glad that jen is going to have her own life as well.  she is too smart to just be arm candy.



Author's Response:

OH MY GOODNESS YOU ARE SO CLOSE!!!!

heehee.

yes...we truly forget most times just how young he is. ANd then silliness ensues like him speaking about allergies or getting pissed in the pub... or throwing Jen to the hollywood ladies unawares...

Jen's got her defensive hackles up. It's about protecting the pretty and their life together, which very much is none of anyone's business.

 

she could never just be arm candy, that's for sure. She could make a fine home for Rob, but she needs something that is her own...

thanks my dear! 

oh my... one more chapter left! well, and then the update that will hit today or tomorrow...

Author's Response:

thanks so much! yah, not all the family can be as open armed as Rob and Lizzy. Victoria is the one we know the least about, the one I think would be very much concerned about Rob's privacy.

Ha ha ha ha - thanks for going "shopping" and giving a good estimate of the grand damage!!! I can so see that kind of dough being spent when shopping that way. And don't forget Tracey's fee for shopping, and Steven's fee for driving, and the hotel cost.... Yeah, in our dreams of having that kind of money to blow in a single day.

Oh, I do wonder what and how much Stephanie knows about what Nick did. And what will Rob do about Nick? Love the story.



Author's Response:

thanks my dear! ofh the "research" that was involved in  the shopping... when all was said and done, I went back and "internet-window" shopped.... over 40k... my hubs came in at one point, saw me cackling in the corner, and looked at what i was doing... i've never seen him panic more and he said "YOU  DIDN"T JUST BUY ALL THAT?!" hehehehe. he did agree with the lingerie.... 

oh yes... a tidy sum of money was spent... and luxury waxing... don't forget the waxing! LOL!

So we finally learn a little about the LA fears!  I like how you mentioned it at the beginning but didn`t focus on it until the infamous Clooney call (I love that bit!)

And the list of Brit Boys!  Oh my :)  I remember that conversation - can we say James McAvoy along with David Tennant.  And them some more David Tennant. 

Maybe follow that up with some David Tennant.

So I`m wondering... how did he figure out her birthday.  Was it sneaky or was it simply looking at her drivers license or something like that....

*HUGS* Steph!  I love that we`re still in January BTW and It`s already May!

Author's Response:

Ah a few LA fears... we'll see what else she has that freaks her out...hehehe.

oh the boys.... I started a really long list.... and now i have a kilty goodness on my Photobucket... mmmmm.

David Tennant.... yes, yes. ... and yes!

her birthday....well, as he says... he has his sources... you'd be amazed what you can find out on Google! we'll see it in OTT for sure!

ergh.  angst-fest much?  but RL ain't all sunshine, so why should your story be?

nick and "acts" plural?  ooh, gets my blood boiling!

3 ladies: kristen scott thomas, christina ricci, uma thurman. 

why does uma thurman qualify as gorgeous?  i personally think she's funny looking and not attractive at all.  but that's just me.

oh, and steph, i've come to a difficult decision.  i've decided to catch up on NTE but will NOT read OTT until i write another chapter of my own story.  carrot and stick, if you will.  let's see how long that will last!

how is it possible that there are so many terrific stories out there but not enough hours in the day to devour them all?  sigh...



Author's Response:

HAHA! i support you fully in your boycott of OTT.. i'd like to see some more of your story... so write away! OTT will still be there! heehee!

ah yes... i like me the angst... hehehe.

RL can never be all sunshine and daisies.... and Jen has so much to work thru.

"acts" ..... plural... yes... 

2 ladies... yep... Uma is an odd beauty to be sure... 

there are far too many stories out there and most definitely not enough hours to read them. i have a HUGE backlog. sigh... maybe in 2012... LOL!
