well well well. I can't say i'm not also dancing in glee that Jenna's plan blew up in her face. maybe now she can see that her plan of stringing along two men(esp one who was really invested) was a bad plan. is weasley going to call jon and straighten this situation out? because in the spirit of friendship that would be nice of him and maybe Jenna could see that she judged Weasley without REALLY knowing him...
...anyways just my guess and opinion. Thanks for the quick chapter I'm excited to see what happens next. I feel like we are speeding up plot wise which is exciting :)

) Not many words, just smiles. I liked this chapter. Jenna's realizing she has to stay focused on Anya, like I hoped, and not focused on Wesley or Jon. Yep, I wish it was longer but that's okay. I'll be here, waiting for the next chapter. I can't wait. Wonder who Wes is calling? Kim or Jon? I NEED to know. Hurry please.

Aw, I'm so thrilled you also read the hunger games series! But I hate the ending! I love Finnick Odair and Collins kill HIM! I really cried after that happened! :'( Sad that Annie gave birth to their child without Finnick even catching a glimpse of the baby. :( oh, well enough of that. I hate it that you have to incorporate another my mind is thinking like 'arghh, another character!' I'm sorry, but I think I have enough of characters in this story who would soon disappear as the story progresses.
"Finnick, maybe some pants?" looks down at his legs noticing his outfit for the first time, whips off his hospital gown, leaving him just in his underwear. "Why? Do you find this"-he strikes a ridiculously provocative pose-"distracting?"
-HAHA I laughed so hard in this part! How about you? who's your fave character and favorite part of the story? :)

I stumbled across this story by pure accident. I have glimpsed over it as few times in the past, as I have read 'Because of You', but then I remembered all the turmoil I felt in reading that towards the end and didn't really know if I could handle reading something of yours again. Then I though what the heck, if I don't like it I can just stop. But I can't. When you know something bad is going to happen and you just can't turn away.
It's strange, I know, but I always tend to become attached to the idea that things will work out perfectly. Unrealistic I know, there is such a thing called life, but I'm a hopeful optimist and I live in a rainbow filled bubble where everything always works out for the better. If it doesn't I tend to think the world is about to come crashing down. Over dramatic for sure.
I started off really liking Wesley, he seemed a super hero, in to sweep Jenna off her feet and into this fabulous new life. I really liked their paring when it was fun and all office flirty. Then the whole Kim thing came into play and I was not wholly expecting it. However, it's not that surprising as Wesley did seem to be like this fantastic new television that you got really cheap so naturally you just waiting for it to explode or something.
I really didn't like Jon at the stories beginning and now I find myself flipping from Wesley to him and I suppose that's good in a sense, as am being influenced by what you are writing, it gives me this heavy feeling in my chest as I just want everything to be over!
After this last chapter I'm very interested to see where Wesley will go from here. I don't really believe he is done with Kim and I'm half wishing she dies in some terribly painful way, or even Jenna for that matter.
Jenna as a character is really bothering me at the moment, because she reminds me of myself a little bit. She over analyses everything to an extremity. I believe if she was really serious about either guy she would have moved out of Wesley's. I don't really think it works to be living with one guy while dating another. If your living with someone it's a different setting for when you do go on dates. It takes away the newness and excitement of finally seeing the other person and the anticipation. And while I realise that it has been different for Jenna and Wesley from the start with the whole phoney engagement thing, I really think that it would have been beneficial for them to try it out like that.
I can't really see Jenna and Wesley working together anymore, as much as that does sadden me slightly, it just isn't feasible. There is one thing that has always bothered me about those two together and that's there lack of sexual tension or really any kind of lust between them, there is no spark. It feels like she's living with a friend or something a lot of the time. I think if Jenna was really serious about Wesley she would want to rip his clothes off and go all porn star - her mum does have a point.
I'm just waiting for Jenna to realise this... and a lot of other things really. She needs some outsider perspective. Maybe a visit from Jessica? I don't know anymore.
If you can sift through all my musings, I applaud you and I feel better about the story now I have gotten all that out.
I kind of want Jenna to meet Kim. Weird. But I would really like to see it.
Anyway great job so far with suckering me in, even if I don't like what's happening I find it compelling and I just can't not read. I am anticipating your next update and I'm still trying to figure out if I like Jon and Jenna together or whether I feel Jenna would be better off with a time-out from the Carter family.
She should just off herself and save me all the contemplation, if only life were simple

Wow, and it all comes down! Anyway I want Wesley and Abby to get together. Because it seems like Abby wants as many children as he does and doesn't know about all of Wesley's past. So since Wesley had decided to stop seeing Kim she won't be hurt like Jenna has been. That's my little piece but you are the writer and know what's best! I just can't wait to see what happens...as for the ending in the words of Obi One "You most do what you feel is right"

Ah! I feel like the world is falling down around us!
Great story! I'm not sure if I'm Team Jon or Team Wesley. I think Jon is great and that Wesley can be an ass, but I also feel like Wesley is the one that I have to be rooting for... Anyway, to say the least, I'm emotionally confused (kinda like Jenna!).
Great job, and please update soon!
| violet-eyez chapter 26 . 3/1/2011
huh? she finally found out. I would prefer that you finish this story conclusively and not have a sequel
| DinaY chapter 26 . 3/1/2011
Even though Wesley just "ended" it with Kim, I still don't trust him. And though Jenna is right by thinking that Jon might just not follow through, I still think they should be together... And what is going on with Abby and Wesley? I'm not liking this.. even if it sounds like she's just going to be Anya's tutor or wtv.. I still don't like it:( Wow mixed feelings there for me.. Anyways... Great chapter! I hope you update soon!

I love the story.
| Midnight113 chapter 26 . 2/28/2011
I like how you had her hearing that conversation at the end. It's interesting to know that she knows he's been talking to Kim and has now supposedly ended everything for good, including contact. I'm interested in seeing how this plays out in the future with them. At least Wesley has decided to start gaining some control with his life again, past Kim. Really great work, I can't wait for more!
| chng234 chapter 26 . 2/28/2011
is this the end between wes n kim?
| EmptySh3ll chapter 26 . 2/28/2011
About the epilogue vs. sequel thing, I think it is up to you. At this point, I no longer know who I am rooting for and I feel for Jenna. AS the author, choose whom ever you think is the best fit and do what ever you want with the ending, I will read both.

Jon's pancakes :D
I think you should do a sequel :)
Hm... in an ideal world I think Wesley should end up with the translator, Abby, so they can have a baseball team together :)
| animegirl214 chapter 26 . 2/27/2011
so... ... ah! Good for Wesley, he finally got rid of Kim... (I'm hoping? :P)
thanks so much for this chapter! :D

Ooh, Jenna's returned to inner-turmoil. I think it will not be long before the shit shall hit the fan. In the long run, I still hope that Jenna will choose Jon, as Westley is way more trouble than he's worth; Kim's not gone forever, either, I don't think, and then there's Abby too.
Jon, although not being entirely into persuing marriage seems a lot sweeter, funnier and would probably be a better catch in my opinion. He's also an amazing cook which balances out Jenna's disasterous, lethal kitchen abilities.
Anya is really adorable though, and her attachment to Jenna is really sweet.
