thanks so much for your comment, sam! lots of my questions brought up here with jenna's mum, marie, the voice of reason. i can only see jon allaying these niggling thoughts though as only HE can answer them. and what did he say to robin i wonder? all or part of the truth? was that jon genuinely drowning his sorrows (he seems so in control but maybe this is an example of showing his feelings?) or a sneaky ploy to set things unravelling...i'm way too suspicious for my own liking! you're driving me crazy with the guessing so update soon,plz ...i kinda value my sanity (what's left of it that is)

Good lord girl, that chapter was long! More to love I guess haha. I don't actually know what I'm going to do with myself when I finish chapter 30- just like Jenna I've been terribly spoiled; I didn't find this story until now, so I've gotten to read 30 chapters straight through. Now I'm going to have to *gasp* wait for the next chapter. Oh the suspense!
I'm interested in where this is going. It make me sad that Jon got booted out, especially after flying half way around the world. Ouch. I don't know about Wesley. I'm still wary and not too thrilled with Jenna's choice- I just feel like Wesley (who I often read as Weasley by the way, which makes it hard for me to take him seriously) is pretty sketchy. I feel like he's going to return to his reticent self. And the love? I don't know, I'm just not feeling it. There's no chemistry between them. They feel like friends not lovers. Sigh...
Great job though. Please, please become a published author. You truly are talented, and I would totally buy your books. )

I cannot even express how much I like this story- it's just insanely fantastic. I love the character dynamics, all their witty retorts, and even their personalities. I've noticed that a lot of your author notes mention that other people think Jenna's a slut- *I* certainly don't.
As far as female leads go, I think she's a pretty likable person, though I'm worried that Wesley is disappointing me. At the beginning when they traded jokes at work and she visited his family I LOVED him, but quite frankly I can't stand him any more. Jon just seems so so SO much better- he is apparently the only one with a sense of humor now, he takes the time to appreciate Jenna and give her thoughtful gifts rather than throw money in her direction, actually has fun with her, isn't so intense about kids etc. Ugghh, I hate Wesley now. She really needs to dump him ans live happily ever after with Jon. ...except I don't think that's going to happen, which makes me sad. But, as of right now I am reaaaaallllyyy hoping that she'll end up with Jon. Oh well, guess I'll find out!
Thanks for sharing your story with us. )

I love this story so much. I'd honestly hate for it to end, but all good things have to come to an end.
This chapter left me thinking that she is going to choose Jon. I'm really hoping she does. I mean I love Wesley and all, but as the chapters wore on and you found out how shadey he with Kim I have lost some of my love for him. He's a great charater and so is Jon, but Wesley just needs to . . . . put his wallet away. If that makes any sense. Jenna's mother is right; I don't believe Wesley is in love with Jenna. Or Jenna with him.
I could be gravely wrong though.
Please update soon.

Turns out Wesley has done something wrong again. Tsk. I'm currently thinking that this story would not end well because of all the situations they are currently in. Well, that would be better than make a very cliche one, wherein they moved on and accepted that she ended up with his cousin or something. I hate your story, because your chapters always left me thinking just like after I finished reading The Hunger Games, and discovered it has a sequel. : So I hope to see the end already and pray that I would not commit suicide before this week ends.

Man... she sounds like she's conforming to Wes... Jon, my poor Jon sounds like he's in emotional pain and left to distract himself.

geez can i slap jenna? she's tired of being a yo-yo but i'm sure jon and wesley are tired of being pitted against each other. i've said this before and she needs to be single. jenna cannot handle an adult relationship because she acts like a child. one minute its jon jon jon and the next its wesley wesley wesley. ugh she frustrates me...at this point i wish they would both kick her to the curb because she is so fickle.
anyways i still love your writing and the story, i just want to shake jenna. and while i hope both guys dump her...if she ends up with anyone i hope its wesley.

I was going to write later on about this, but... HOW COULD WESLEY CHEAT ON JENNA! HOW COULD WESLEY CHEAT ON JENNA WITH KIM! KIM IS A GOLD DIGGER! If anything JON is BETTER than WESLEY! At first Wesley was... fun. But NOW he is a TWO-TIME-CHEATER! And he talked BAD about Jon. At least Jon doesn't cheat and just tells you if he's not interested. I really hope that Jon is better than Wesley. And Jenna isn't cheating.
| On The Tip Of My Tongue chapter 30 . 7/29/2011
I just read this entire story in a day and a half with sleep and food and going out in between. I think I might deserve an award. I don't know how you can write almost 10,000 words a chapter. Any tips? XP
But, otherwise, I am very much a fan of your story. I'm not going to lie - the first chapter I read Wesley as Weasley and I've been thinking Weasley ever since. Also, when the metaphor for his fake smile and the fake mustache was made, I've envisioned him with a long, fake, well groomed mustache. I also hated him for a good half the story. But that might just be because I kind of hate Jenna. Not so much because of her personally, but because of her decisions I guess? Her personality as a character so directly clashes with mine. Like me, I wouldn't even think of adopting until I had my own source of financial stability and I wouldn't have to rely on a man I might or might not be involved with. And I try to understand the whole thing between Wesley and Jon, but it's difficult because when she first met Jon she started an intelligent conversation with him off the bat. The only thing Jenna's ever discussed with Wesley is their future together, their future apart, the company, their personal lives, and their family. It's like they're caught up in a world of them.
I'm not trying to disrespect your writing - not at all. I just guess I don't have as much of a bleeding heart as Jenna where I'd adopt a child as soon as I saw pictures of broken orphanages. I'd prefer Jon over Wesley, no doubt about it. But that's probably just because I'd clash with Wesley, you know?
Oh well. Those are my disorganized opinions upon your story. :) You're a wonderful writer.

YAY! You're back. I felt a little slow reading this, because it's been so long but it all came back me.
Way to go Marie for making Jenna feel like shit. It's so lovely to hear that this man only cares for her because she's the mother of his child. First thing I gotta say is I don't think Jenna has picked a man yet. She's picked Anya, Wesley picked Anya. They haven't choose each other. There's no love, just slight admiration. Admirations isn't enough to sustain a relationship.
At first I thought Robin was mad at Jenna, or irritated with the guy she was talking to. As I thought this over, I believe her chat with Jon put her in a mood. He must have pointed something out about Wesley. She wanted to scold her brother for something he had done wrong and sparing Jenna's feelings she chose to do it privately. I seriously think she's disappointed in something he's done, and he knew he'd been caught because he agreed to speak with his sister one on one.
Sadly, I'm doubting Wesley. Even though I want it to be him, I've yet to understand him. Firstly, I cannot comprehend why he's clinging to so tightly to Jenna? If he cannot give her his whole heart completely, don't string her along. Same goes for her too.
He's always been so mysterious, but to much mystery makes me think he's untrustworthy, still. What's really going on in his head? And as for Jon, him going to Paris doesn't sit well with me. Anywhere Kim is means trouble in my eyes. Now, I'm not jumping to any conclusions, or maybe I am. I'm just saying she's drama and I feel she's about to start more, if she hasn't set the drama wheels in motion yet.
One thing Wes should do, is ban Paris all together. But it must be hard for him since he's still holding onto the sick relationship he has with Kim. Okay I'm being presumptuous again but whatever. Okay, I'm done with my rambling, please update soon. I love this confusing story. Also, I'm curious about this townhouse, there must be more to that story and I'm impatiently waiting to know what Jon spoke to Robin about.
UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE!
