Oh, poor Princess, soooooooooooo lonely...
At least, Jenny was able to go to the game; I thought they would forbid her to go.
Ben must be so relieved to be out of this marriage. So happy he opened his eyes.
Brian fainting: Justin is not only an amazing artist, he also is a fabulous lover.
The parental skills are really improving for Michael and Lindsey! Especially Lindsey.
She is nasty and demanding; and of course, doesn't apply her rules to herself. She must be dying from jealousy each time she goes in the dressing.
I hope they won't follow thru about the roller derby: it will crash Jenny.
Yeah, Lindsey had an ulterior motive with her champagne: she wants Mel's clothes. She also wants to run the gallery and, too bad for her, Justin's show isn't going to be held where she wanted.
As for Justin, he should better go with Brian next time he travels; he will avoid panic attack and a good spanking... although, I'm not sure he didn't enjoy the last part...
Michael and Jenny's relation is not gonna last long if he really wants her to stop roller derby. And once he will find out about Hank, it will explode.
What has Lindsay in mind with her champagne? It's certainly not only because she has a job.
TalonMotor is back! I don't know how Ted and Brian didn't explode from laughter!
Blake owning the comic book store will be a knife in Michael's heart (and balls as well). The vengeance of the other twink...
Excellent!!! The public downfall of Lindsey was a delight; and the end was worth the pain they got thru.
Gus is right to face his mother and Mel backs him up; Lindsey better be careful.
Jennifer is starting to speak and think like Deb about kinky topics.
The comment of Stuart about Rage was funny and Michael's reaction was great.Emmett, Daphne and Jennifer seemed to have a disaster for Lindsey; I bet she will be ashamed for some time after that.
Poor Jenny: she has the worst parents except for Mel, but she's lucky to have such a family to balance the bad moments.
Hilarious: the hamsters in Justin's head.
Justin remembers the prom: that's a major step for him and Brian as well.
Gus and Lindsey: poor kid; having such a mother; fortunately, Brian talked to him.
Daphne and Michael: I love how she deals with him.
Taylor was so funny and spontaneous with her “Mr Sulky Face why are you in your jammies?”
Lindsey is getting worse as the time goes on.
So happy she was put down by George.
Ha ha ha, Gus almost spilled the beans about Ben and Steve.
“Allergies?”: same as Justin's when he had an emotional breakdown with Brian.
Gus and Jenny are good together, that's nice.
This is hilarious: “Ems you never need an excuse for bubbles!” Drew calls out.“Honey. One word. Couch!” He calls back.
The school's choices and the arguments Michael and Lindsey gave: they really have no shame at all!
Yeah! Daphne is in the plane too! And she will be staying at Britin!
What a useless bitch Lindsey can be: she can't even appreciate a beautiful home without trashing her host and the son of said host! Such a shame! She can't place an order to have food delivered on time.
Glad Faal witnessed that.
Mel is starting to see that Lindsey isn't it for her anymore. With Daphne in the mix, Lindsey won't win, as Daphne will fight for her best friend and the new ones she just got, Mel and Zee. Not to mention Faal who sees her very clearly.
Excellent chapter! Daphne is back and it's wonderful! Her "breathing" is hilarious.
Mel and Zee played nicely with the move and the next family house for the Munchers.
Zee and Jennifer against Lindsey: hot as hell; she better watch what she does and says next!
Things are moving forward for Ben! Happy for him, he so deserves this!
I hope Mel will agree with the proposal she received.
Brian did cave for Deb, but Justin won't let Michael leach go loose.
Excellent!! I loved Alice's comment: “I know I do your laundry. And can sometimes hear you if you don’t close the window. Or are in the stables, the barn, and the garage or by the brook.” She comments dryly.
Jennifer gets also red when they talk about Zee's skill with glass and what she made from Faal's anatomy.
It's great that Hunter works at the gallery and is able to get the paintings Justin was missing so much.
Again, what an epic chapter!
The beginning with Cynthia, Brian and Ted: “Will you be my best woman?” I blurt out. “Your best? I’m uh what?” She looks at me confused. Excellent! They have a very strong professional relationship, but it's more than that, and we can feel it here.
Cynthia with Lindsay: "I hang up and smile. Oh that felt good to do!" I bet she felt relieved after so many years spent to filter her calls!
Lindsay doesn't know how to choose the right co-conspirator; she is in for big trouble with Michael.
What a chapter!
Lindsay and her sea legs!!! Hilarious!
Taylor is adorable with Ben.
Jennifer is such an efficient WASP: she knows the codes and won't let Lindsay have her way with Faal. At least, she will try to stop her.
As for a diamonds engagement ring: it seems to make Justin like the fiancée in a straight wedding. I think it's heteronormative and out of character as Justin likes simple and comfortable things; he doesn't care about the financial value, he only cares about the symbolic one.
Miss SuckyLemonFace... LOL!
Wow, she has seriously lost all sense of manners and decorum! What the hell did she think she was doing? That is just beyond... to perv on him while he was in the shower?! Even if that isn't what she was doing (which I doubt) what kind of person goes into someone's private bedroom?
Way to go Daph in getting revenge on the shrew!
The little scene with Brian and Gus was sweet. At least Brian, Justin, Mel, and Ben make up for the other two jackass parents.
Holy crap that's an awesome gift they gave Mel, and such a great f.u. to Lindz!
*jumps up and down* Go, George!!
I wonder if everyone has nightmares of Michael in one ear repeating, "I'm his best friend!" and Lindsay in the other, "I'm the mother of his child!" It's like they think it should have the paparazzi following them around.
I hope Daph moves back to the Pitts soon.
Seriously, WTF is with Lindsay? Michael I get, he's always been a moron and lacking in common sense, but when did Lindz join that party? Don't get me wrong, she's a manipulative bitch, but she had at least some brains giving her the ability to be a good manipulator. Why on earth is she pushing for things as stupid as the kids going to school near Michael? Is it so she'd have an excuse to show up at Britin all the time? Very sloppy, Lindz.
My lord, she is such an ingrate! I'd be drop kicking her ass out the door!
Heh, I feel like I'm watching a game of 'How many people can put Lindsay in her place?'
*sigh* The anniversary party thing again. This is one thing I'm not sure I can ever really get past, for a few reasons. First, I don't understand how no one even wondered why Brian did it. He was never a violent person, and especially with it being Michael. How did that strike none of them as odd? But then there's the fact Brian let it go so easily with Michael, and he even initiated the apology. That's never sat well with me, either. If you ever get the inclination to rewrite everything that happened after that punch... LOL.
I'm still really confused as to why Lindz is going along with Michael, to be honest. She sees how angry both Brian and Faal are with him, and they're the only ones she'd really care about, so I'm just not really clear on her motivation. I'd think she'd at least not make it so obvious, as it would run contrary to her goals of landing one of those two guys and gaining the financial comfort she wants.
Adding her personal touches to the table? The gall of Lindz! All about sitting next to Faal or Brian, I'm sure. She will probably be playing Lady of the Manor. I also love how she's all concerned with J visiting Michael, but would be more than willing to withold Gus from Brian if it suited her agenda.
Yep, Lindz trying to play Lady of the Manor. Too bad for her that no one else is playing!
I'm confused as to why they're doing presents on Thanksgiving?
Epic smackdown by Zee! Sluggish twat, LOL, love it! Lindsay's jealousy seems to be causing her to lose all sense of manners. She's a terrible WASP.
Zee is so awesome. Thank god Lindz isn't getting her hooks into Britin. Justin would kill her.
Thanksgiving presents was a small mistake on my part as I thought the USA did presents then but it worked out okay.
Oh Zee gets so much better where Lindsay is concerned.
With regards to the spelling of Lindsay's name...I didn't have betas with this until about half way through so they are catching them more.
PS: wait for the pitbull smackdown!
Damn, he's not even paying child support now? He's a complete waste of oxygen!
Yay, I'm so glad Gus and Jenny will be back in Pittsburgh.
More excuses from Michael. We know he's capable of being organized since he used to be manager of the Big Q. He just doesn't care about supporting his kid.
Yay! Daphne's back! I love her so much!
Erf, I hate that Michael gets such a nice place. He so doesn't deserve it.
Poor Brian. His entire concept of relationships has been so warped throughout the majority of his life. Now that he's finally realizing not only what real love is but real friendship, the hurts that he's bottled up for so long are going to explode. Michael, in his utterly delusional state, is lighting that fuse.
So awesome that Hunter found Justin's missing paintings.
Cynthia's so awesome, and I love how much Brian appreciates her. I loved her giving Lindz the verbal smackdown.
Heh, I like the lawyer - risky for him to do that, but very cool.
Seems Lindsay has joined the delusional train. I'm not sure why she thinks Michael would give her an accurate accounting of events, and the idea that Justin is jealous of them is laughable.
Good for Kiki on protecting Deb.
Glad they squashed the lawsuit against Alice. He's such a prick.
So, I'm super excited because I hadn't gotten to read this one yet. I can't wait to see what happens!
I have a feeling a lot of nausea is in my future reading about Lindsay drooling over Faal. I wonder if she thinks it'll make Brian jealous? I can't imagine her giving up on her fantasy of being Mrs. Kinney, though maybe any hot, rich guy will do.
The glasshouse sounds amazing - an enviable honeymoon destination!
An artistic bow in your quiver? Oh, gag!
Aww, Taylor is adorable. She and Steve will be so good for Ben.
Oooo, Jen! Burn! Lindsay really needs to catch a clue. BTW, you're switching how you spell Lindsay sometimes (spelling it with an 'e' instead of 'a').
Hee hee, Michael lost all his toys!
I absolutely loved this story. The ending was perfect. Thank you so much for writing and sharing.
