Omg what!! Now that is a real twist and one that will spin everything another way

Name: The SNO (Signed) · Date: May 20, 2018 2:42 pm · Chapter: Chapter 21: HUSTLING AND SHUFFLING

WHAT? WTF as Brian would tell if he wasn't on the ground. That's so unexpected and weird. Sure they act the same way, but twins?

Gardner and Lindsay: this is so awful; they are preparing something really damaging for Brian, but Cynthia is keeping an eagle eye on the place.

Whst the hell. You can not end with that.

OMG! Twins! You have left me speechless! All I can say is this is such a great fic and this chapter has a lot going but that final revelation... priceless!!!! I love it!

Wow.  First we have Lindsay and Gardner thinking they're going to pull a fast one.  Then Jen and Gardner's exwife, did we learn about the son that Gardner pushed away?  Things are moving on with Cynthia and Marcie working to foil Lindsay and Gardner's plot.  Next you top it off with learning that Mel and Brian are twins!  The story behind that should be really good.

What a Way To Bury The Lead With Another Cliffhanger!!! <Applause>

Did Joan steal Brian from the hospital?

Lindsay is going to be so pissed when she finds out she had her brother in law's son, of course no one tell her until after she signs away her parental rights <smirks>

Lindsay must have learned negotiating from Mommy, no ever told her not to spread her legs to get ahead?

I don't think Lindsay has fully grasped what actually working means and that the client has the final say on designs and that no one waits for her to draw a straight line while twirling her hair, and I don't think Gardner has thought about what having Lindsay working for him will entail, she will be whining more  than Michael (Is That  Possible??) and complaining more too (Seriously Is That Even Possible???)

Wonder what George is going to do with those photos of Kip and his Uncle??

Did Constances by any chance come into her marriage with more money than Gardner and did her money help with his purchase of Ryder Advertising and his subsequent sexual harassment payments?

Perhaps Constances would like to have her money back with interest? <evil smirk>

Sounds like Mel might be getting her Happiness Back thanks to Leda ;)

Michael in the gutter is an experience he should really get use to lol

Fantastic, Surprising Update!!

Hope The Next Chapter Will Be Up Soon <Begs on knees> Please

Re-read the story and I must say Molly is so her Mother's daughter and Justin's sister, that little genius came up with the prefect payback for Daddy Dearest.

I do believe Craig is going to wish he had went to county cause Cousin Fred is going to make prison seem like a pleasure cruise.

Gardner may think he is aligning himself with a smart classy Wasp, but he is actually getting a Self-Absorbed Low Rate, Low Class Drama Princess with high and very expensive standards, and as much talent artistic wise of a dung beetle on crack and cocaine.

Congrats to Lynnette for getting 'Knocked Up' and actually understanding what it is to be a Wasp. ( I do wonder if she actually pushed Lindsay or did she change the story to fit her narrative?)

Michael should really just carry around a tape recorder so that he doesn't have to open his mouth cause he just enjoys repeating himself too bad everyone else is tired of listening.

I don't think John and Peter Will be too much of a problem for everyone, and Daphne Will Destroy Anyone Who Tries lol

The joke about Justin's age is very funny: yes, Brian will have to deal with 2 teens, a midget, a baby, Justin's best friend and a lesbian who hated his guts not so long ago! What a change in his life!

Jennifer is having real fun with what is happening to Craig, Nancy and Lindsay. The project Justin told her is going to keep her busy.

Lindsey and Gardner together: that meas disaster in preparation.

Nancy out of her home is the best thing Ronald has done in years; why did he wait so long while they were married for more than 25 years? Lynette is certainly more than 30 years old.

So relieved that Gus is well and Brian is able to get him. Great news about Claire being arrested, but where are her kids?

I hope one day Joan will have to face what she did to Brian. Thanks to Vic daring confronting her.

This was perfection! I would have loved to see this on the screen! 

Author's Response:

Hey Shine!

Thanks so much. This is exactly how I would have loved to see things go too, which is why I'm enjoying writing this so much. YES, I loved and still love the show, but there were some storylines that were simply unfinished. So although some of the storylines started as they did on the show, this is my take on what could have happened had the writers had the time and inclination. I'm so happy that you and others are enjoying my vision thus far and there is so much more to come. Stay Tuned!

Happy Reading and HUGS,

Holy Crap!! When Justin goes Wasp he does it with style and finesse.

Taking the bathhouse and turning it into offices for Kinnectik and Mel is Smart, but building a Mansion big enough for all of them to share and still have their own space and privacy is Genius!!!

It will piss off the haters who don't want to see them succeeding and living Fabolous.

Plus it will be a place they can all be proud of to share and a proper home for all of them to make their own memories free of the selfish, whiny, inconsiderate A-Holes.

With Jennifer's team and Justin's artistic flair it will be the premier home that everyone with or without money will drool over and envy for years to come.

Putting Cynthia on alert is good if she hasn't cleared out Brian's files yet, than Vance dealing with his soon to be Ex and Lindsay should keep him busy?

Lindsay having to deal with Nancy and Michael should keep her busy

I don't think John and Peter will be too hard to save but I do wonder what information they heard which can be useful to their Uncles and Aunt Mel? ;)

Thank You for such a Fantastic Update :)



Author's Response:

Hey Blue!

YES! Justin is learning his WASP lessons well and will continue to do so! I agree with you that his ideas are GENIUS and yet they are just so innocently delivered. After all, he isn't intentionally setting out to harm anyone, but if someone's feelings should get hurt, well that's all on them, isn't it? LOL! The more he heals, the better he is going to get. I think Mel's assessment of him is correct. Justin is definitely making a COMEBACK! 

Cynthia, Marcia and Murph will definitely have some plans in the works. Add Constance and Jennifer to the mix and...well just watch for fireworks and explosions.

It looks like Lindsay is finally going to get what she's always wanted...all of her mother's attention. Should be very interesting to see how she handles having Nancy all to herself. 

I find myself falling in love with this version of John and Peter. Sure they have some issues to deal with, but I'm really going to love watching them grow alongside their uncle. The fact that Mel, Justin and Daphne will be there is going to help the three of them in ways none of them even realize yet. But I'm really looking forward to them meeting Emmett, LOL!

So happy you are still enjoying this!

Happy Reading and HUGS!

Looks like Justin with the help of his mother and Molly have things in hand.  With Daphne on board to help with the nephews things should work out.

Author's Response:

Hey Phyllis!

Those Alwin-Taylors are some dangerous folks when crossed as Rudyard Craig Taylor is about to find out. I couldn't stop laughing during the interaction of Jenn and the littlest hellraiser. Jennifer will definitely have her hands full in the future with that Smart Little Whelp

Having Daphne in Florida is going to be great for everyone. I almost can't wait to write this particular storyline all out, but there is still so much that will occur in Pittsburgh, too. All I can say is there will never be a dull moment!

So glad you're continuing to enjoy this!

Happy Reading and HUGS,


Name: emac66 (Signed) · Date: Apr 23, 2018 12:15 pm · Chapter: Chapter 1: HOW DID YOU GET HERE?

Am full of joy at the idea of Craig being Fred's "indentured servant" looking forward to what Fred will have him doing. Who was Fred talking to?? Sounds like some games are afoot. can't wait!!

So Nancy is now working with Gardner and his wife huh? All sorts of interesting things will be happening there I'm sure. Unsuccessful naturally, but should be amusing and equally frustrating to see. They'll gain an inch and fall back a mile. Love seeing that. The idea of Lindsey and Gardner though....ick!! She and Gardner are in for a hell of a shock when Brian eventually sees Lindsey at the office. Kinnetic will be started sooner than he thinks I bet. She's definitely going to try to put some cogs in teh wheels at the office, but again, can't see it being particularly succesful. If she tries too much, Gardner will end up losing clients even before Brian leaves. Lindsey is going to cause him to loose a TON of money in the end. 

Thank goodness Ron is out from her clutches. to think he's just been waiting all this time. His martyrdom will eventually be rewared I'm sure. Not however with Belinda. He learned his lesson with Nancy, pretty sure he's not going to take on Nancy 2.0.

The nephews may prove to be an interesting addition to this new family. I'm sure they will eventually end up there permanently. At least I would hope so. Joan is in for a shock! Hopefully the boys don't give them too much grief and lean quickly who the actual good guys are. Feel bad for them, as they are just a product of their environment. A change of that environment is sorely needed and fast!

Wonderful!!!! So much happening!




Author's Response:

Hey Elaine!

Craig is definitely going to understand the true meaning of 'indentured servitude' and you'll never guess who is responsible for his new plight. I listen for the virtual cackle you're going to have!

Nancy is indeed joining forces with Gardner, but she better watch out for Belinda Ryder, who is Marty's wife and her 'friend.' But when you live as a crab in a bucket, one better be careful about who's looking to pull you back down when you climb too high. And Belinda is definitely ONE of the crabs! I have a feeling that Ron has his own plans in the works to be too worried about Nancy 2.0.

Lindsay and Gardner...well isn't that a match made in HELL. But nothing is ever cut and dry, and their road of revenge definitely won't be smooth. After all, Cynthia, Marcie and Murph are there....just saying! LOL 

I have to admit the arrival of John and Peter in this capacity has surprised me in a really interesting way. Brian will really get to know them, and in turn, they will learn what is fact or fiction regarding their mother and grandmother's rants about their Uncle Brian. Justin, Mel and the 'true' extended family will definitely help to dispel the myths.

Glad you continue to enjoy this story, Darling!

Happy Reading,

Definitely a lot going on and many surprises in store.

Lindsay showed Brian how to behave and succeed?

What the Hell is she smoking?

Brian didn't need Lindsay to show him anything and she needs to realize that for all her tricks and schemes Brian Will Never Chose Her!!!

Mommy may have taught her to play dirty but she Damn Sure Didn't Teach Her How To Win!!!!!

Lindsay working?

That's funny especially since Cynthia won't let Lindsay or Gardener anywhere near Brian, doesn't mean she can't have any fun playing with their small minds right?

Ronald left Nancy with six grand and since Lindsay isn't his flesh and blood then he doesn't owe her anything either.

Ronald got his dignity back and thanks to that clause and Nancy's inability to be faithful he is free to live his own life without those two leeches around his neck.

Not surprised Joan doesn't know where her grandsons are was more concerned about her next drink than those kids.

Hope they don't give Brian and Justin too much of a headache and that they can start to bridge the divide between them.

The Next chapter is going to be very interesting :)

Author's Response:


It's bad when you're working with a character who makes you wonder if you belong in a mental hospital while channeling their thoughts. Lindsay is such a character, and yet, she's completely sane in her rationale even within the foolishness she believes. Same goes for Nancy. I just can't wait for Lindsay to start working at Vanguard *evil grin and rubbing hands*

Writing these women this way, I can honestly say that Joan is the broke man's Nancy Peterson. Talk about NOT winning any 'Mother of the Year' awards...SMH. Both are of the 'children should be seen and not heard until their useful' mentality...and they will both pay for their neglect in very different ways. I'm very glad that Ron got away from Nancy, even if it was past time. We haven't seen the last of him or his new allies.

Happy Reading,

I'm not even addressing Michael, he's just a piece of shit!

Go Vic! Tell those bitches Joan & Claire what they clearly don't want to hear! lol So glad Claire was arrested! Wish her mother was too. 

It's fabulous to see Brian, Justin & Mel uniting & backing each other up! 

Name: BlueMyst (Signed) · Date: Apr 14, 2018 5:28 pm · Chapter: Chapter 18: THE CAT'S IN THE CRADLE...AND OUT OF THE BAG

I agree with following Brians' instincts and getting out of Pittsburgh quickly, some stuff is about to go down and it's best if they aren't there for it.

Gus being okay and safe in his Daddy's arms is Wonderful, Amazing, Beautiful.

Joan will soon be sharing a cell with her daughter if they can prove she got Claire to file that false paperwork, plus if the boys were left alone that means even more trouble for them.

Deb just wasted her time talking to Michael he is fourteen where Brian was just his and no one and nothing is getting him out of that mindset.

So let him continue to plan and fail cause he will push Brian further away.

Looks like Ron is going to clean house and he is starting with Nancy, who's secrets are about to come out which is not good for her, especially if Ron cuts off all the money and she doesn't have enough in her rainy day fund? (Her enemies, frenemies are going live that!!)

Lindsay is going to be on the warpath when she finds out Brian and Melanie didn't bail her out, Brian has his rights back, plus they are fighting to have her rights terminated and she can't be around Gus due to the restraining order.

Thank Goodness they have some very powerful influential people on they're side because this is going to get brutal.

Thanks for the Update :)

Another amazing chapter! Hopefully Lindsay and Claire will get to share a cell and end up killing each other!

So good to see that Brian and Justin have so many people guarding their backs and standing up for them. Vic was right when he said Joan was lucky he was there and not Debbie!

Looking forward to the next chapter!



Name: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: Apr 14, 2018 3:09 pm · Chapter: Chapter 18: THE CAT'S IN THE CRADLE...AND OUT OF THE BAG

How nice that Vic and Diane were able to take on Joanie.  Claire filing a claim on her husbands insurance at Joanie's instigation?  Somehow I don't see Joanie getting out of it especially when her grandsons are found alone.  Which I hope happens.  Now Brian has Gus and I'm looking forward to their trip to Miami.

Name: BlueMyst (Signed) · Date: Mar 26, 2018 4:58 pm · Chapter: Chapter 17: I KEEP ON FALLING...

After all that simpering about how she couldn't wait to be a mother and how she would cherish holding a child in her arms and watching them grow, and she didn't mind staying home to spend time with the baby, she leaves Gus in a locked car for fifteen minutes and now everyone has to race to the hospital to see if he is alright.

Lindsay Can Rot Under The Jail because if Brian gets her alone he will choke her out!!!

And Mel will get him off on good behavior.

George was smart to help Mel save the money she makes and Gus's trust fund from that conniving Bitch!

Ronald would be smart to listen to Aurora and leave Nancy five dollars, I hope he has a prenup that protects him more than Nancy.

For all her knowledge as a Wasp Nancy is still sitting at the kiddies table and pretty soon she is going to be kicked off that table too.

Nancy is so stupid cause Lindsay's actions have now played into Brian and Melanie's hands, and it looks like it has also helped Ron to see that is beyond past time he cleaned house.

Wonderful Chapter Can't Wait For The Next Update :)

What a fucking idiot Lindsay is! Not to mention an entitled, self-absorbed, selfish, thoughtless bitch! Wow....

Name: The SNO (Signed) · Date: Mar 26, 2018 10:29 am · Chapter: Chapter 17: I KEEP ON FALLING...

WASP 101 is back firing and Lindsay is arrested: she's on the slippery slope. With the way she was brought up, this is quite expected. I hope Brian will get Gus very soon.
