Oh no, I did it. I wasn't supposed to read this yet. I meant to save it for as long as possible, because this is my favourite story of all and you don't update it very often. But when you do, it's like Christmas to me. I loved every single word of it, so thank you so much for writing this.

Author's Response: Awwww, thanks very much! I\'m glad you liked it :D

I loved this when you posted it over at l-word.com and MutedTempest and I talked and we both wanted to PM you and ask you to post it here! I am SO glad you did!

God, this is soooo good! It's how I'd want season 6 to be, though I doubt that'll happen. Ilene never does what I want her to do. Sigh. But your story is brilliant and I can't wait for you to go on!

Author's Response: I\'m just glad that I have great place to post the story, where people will enjoy it. I just have to get back in the writing groove, so the chapters will be better!

Jesus, I laughed so hard when I read this! I don't know if I was supposed to but some parts of it were so damn funny! Like the flashback to 5x11, it was adorable! Especially when Shane kept asking if she or someone else said something XD And the driving! And the hair! I loved it! And it wasn't THAT short! Better a shorter chapter than none at all!

Author's Response: I absolutely meant for you to laugh! I think it\'s always good to have some comedy in with drama. The thing with Shane asking about saying something or if someone else said something, came back from when I used to smoke..(very long long time ago), it was something I asked quite frequently. Come to think of it, I ask it a lot now, and I don\'t smoke pot... I should get that checked out.

Slow start? I think there's LOTS of stuff going on here! I was really excited to see that you posted a new chapter last night, but I couldn't read it until now because I had a ton of homework to do. Getting to read it now though was an awesome reward after finishing it, the characters are just so spot on and I really liked the references to ep 3x03 and 5x04 and that Shane confronted her "friends" about what they said to Phyllis. I've said it before and I'll say it again - it would be so cool if Ilene did something like this in season 6.

Author's Response: I thought it was really important that Shane confront Bette and Alice. Shane doesn\'t seem to confront many people about what they do or say, like her father. I think it is good way to have Shane start growing up and instead of running away from the things that hurt her, she faces them. I\'ve been trying really hard to make sure that I write the characters as they really are. Thanks so much for the support!

I just read this again because I miss this story (even if it hasn't been that long since you updated it). Hope you can post something soon ^____^

Author's Response: I think I hit a block or something, but I'm working on it, sorry to make ya wait! Hopefully, the next chapter will be worth it.

You don't need to thank me, I should be thanking you for letting me read it! (I think I already did though, but still!) I adored this. I love how Shane went after Adele to help Jenny, and the scene with Jenny in the kitchen was awesome. I know she's stronger than that and it makes me so proud of her. Anyways, this one was great, and I'm sure your next chapter is gonna rock just as much. I shall be waiting impatiently!

Author's Response: Well, hopefully you won't have to wait impatiently too long! I just hope that it won't disappoint!

I love this so much. Seriously. Everything is so damn great, and the scene where Tina and Shane are on the phone, I can read that over and over and laugh like an idiot every single time. I, like Shane, hadn't even considered what the consequences of her meeting with Adele might be, so that made it all even funnier. And yay for Sounder, I think he needs a fanclub. And as for the last scene, I think it broke my heart more than the last scene of 5x12 did.

Author's Response: Thanks! I really think that your edits and suggestions made this chapter flow a lot better, so I'm going to thank you again!
