Before she knew it she was knocking on the first door on the left. "Come in" A muffled voice spoke. Iris opened the door meeting the brown sluggish eyes of the manager, James. He smirked at the sight of Iris. ...
I'm pretty sure I wouldve behaved just like Jamie. The idea of having Shannon Hoon as a brother in law is now something I long for. Hopefull thats what I'll dream about later. A lot of this was actually relatable, the height making Shannon sick. Poor baby, i felt for him on that one. It's good that Layne sometimes, visibly gets annoyed with Shannon but in the end they're forever. A+ chapter once again, and thank god 5k words! —myfairy-queen, for alternative_daze's Adventures In Marriage
Really feeling the Tara/Dave love in this chapter. (Not to mention that caring!Dave gets me all mushy anyway.) They held it together admirably, considering the storm of confusion everyone was caught up in, and I hate to think what might have become of Jason if he didn't have those two waiting up for him. —Augustine, for Aggro's Four Fingers, Closed Fist
This chapter definitely did not play out the way I expected, for which I'm very glad. I much prefer unpredictability. One of the things I didn't predict was feeling sympathetic toward Dan--but only up to a point (the point when he could, and should, have said "no" but didn't). My thoughts and emotions were totally in sync with Jason's while he was listening to that story. It's horribly discouraging and frustrating when the "answers" you get only seem to raise more questions--questions that may be impossible to answer. Part of me suspects that X would still have ended up "messed up" even if she/he'd never met this guy. I get the sense that X's life was already on a dangerous trajectory and that he would have ended up in trouble regardless. So where did things first start to go wrong? Will (or can) Jason ever know? Needless to say, I'm still in awe and admiration of your characterizations. —Augustine, for Aggro's Four Fingers, Closed Fist
