for Picking Up The Pieces

Before I give any review, I need to say this: Sydney with a temper... not a pretty sight. Quite intimidating as a matter of fact.

Following the consequences of Jarod's departure (as seen in 'Retrospective'), the title of this story is a perfect fit. It was presumable that Miss Parker might feel the loss of Jarod, despite her attempts to make everyone else think otherwise, but never to this extreme. As she relays her side of the story, the loss she has faced, the lies, the deceit, it's actually a surprise how long she held without snapping.

In my opinion, this one of the most important and defining stories in this series. Important because it puts Sydney and Miss Parker on a new common path. They both lost someone very dear to them and realize they can lean on each other for support. Defining because the Miss Parker this series will show us in the future is very different from the one we've known so far. THIS is the beginning of that transformation. Without this story, that evolution would not make any sense.

Wow! I'm naming you my second Pretender Fan Fiction God, alongside Phenyx. No matter what, your stories never slip into smarm or cliche. They are trully well written with inspired ideas and interpretations. The language you use is well picked and realistic given the characters natures. It's just amazing! Great Job!

MMB-

Wow, Miss Parker having a breakdown, never would have thought that possible! But you did a great job. I love how you get inside Syd's mind, but then you know I adore that about your writing.

Even if the first story was meant as a stand alone, it's a great follow-through to see where Jarod's departure would take people and how it would affect others. Time for the next part...

I'm a Pretender fan, and working on a Pretender Crossover story of my own. And when I read this story, I had only two thoughts that came to my mind: 1) Sydney WILL make sure that Ms. Parker is treated properly, giving her the help she needs. 2) Jarod WILL find out about Ms. Parkers abuse by her father, and that rat WILL PAY! And when Jarod gets into payback mode, someone is going to wish that they had never done what they had done to that person ever!

Beautiful story! I've often wondered what would happen to "the three stooges" post-Jarod, and you've done a wonderful job with it! More, please!
