Still waiting (not patiently anymore...tap tap tap) for the final chapter! I love all of your writing and think you need to drop out of school, quit your job, and write fanfic full time.
With love and admiration,
your impatient fangurl Gina

Oh yeah...you put Wade in his place Will! I loved what Mac said to Wade in the show but this was pretty darn good too! Happy New Year Will and Mac!
One chapter left to go? Filled with fluff and happiness please?!

Okay, so you've convinced me that this could be wrapped up that quickly. I concede!
I LOVE seeing Will blast Wade like that ... I'm glad Mac did it on the show, but I would've loved to see something like this too. It's so sad that Mac could believe even for a minute that she deserves this. I'm so glad Will managed to set her straight and tell her everything. And of course I love the kiss.
That scene could have gone so wrong for Will, though, if Mac didn't take it the right way. I'm glad she did!

Bravo Billy! *applause applause applause applause applause*
You wrote all of the characters really well. Wade is a typical smug and bastard...Finally he is dumped!
You can't imagine how much I love the part he got rid of him...that whole speech " It was about this guy who wants to run for congress, but with too many minors on his record from college and a pretty shabby list of cases as a litigator, he had nothing to make him noticeable to the people that mattered. A pretty rubbish resumé, you might say…" OMG! I really love this one! Perfect job Will! I admire him so much!
And his confessions to Mac and the hug...oh so sweet...*melt melt melt melt melt*
and of course i wanna shout out i love the ending kiss!woo-hoo!
Yes you are right Will should have kissed her at New Year's. Anyway I just hope Sorkin can let Will and Mac kiss at some point in Season 2!
So sorry to hear that you'd be away for a few days...we'll wait for your coming back in December:-D
Good luck with your studies:-D

"and it's posted a day early especially for KatyKat70, who has had a very long day" awwww - bless... thank you very much... how lucky are we?
Well - this is a lovely read before I head off to bed... :) and I knew you couldn't go through with the "maybe a sad ending and Mac might leave!"" Happy happy days...
Fantastic chapter once again matey - WADE IS FINALLY GONE! YAY, YAY, YAY! (I feel like singing 'Ding dong the witch is dead')!... and you have no idea how much I love that Will was the one to set him up... bloody brilliant writing! Macho Will - really love it!
LOVE this line - the way Will described her..."So he meets this woman. She works in media and she's beautiful, intelligent, funny, social gold dust, and yet tragically vulnerable." my first *Sigh* moment folllowed by many sigh moments for the rest of the chapter...
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous chapter... Great writing as always matey - absolutely LOVED this chapter and will wait patiently for the next chapter - it's going to be a full chaper of happy fluff - has to be!
THanks again for posting... :)
ps- you're right at the end there about New Years Kiss - he could have given her a little peck on the cheek eh?

This was a beautiful chapter. So glad that Will helped get rid of Wade. And the ending was just the sweetest. Love this news year's resolution. :) Looking forward to the finale chapter. x

What a good way to start the New Year - a clean slate. Well done!
| Amy 11/11/12 . chapter 13
Ohhhhh nooooo still no happy, sexy end! Jesus Christ you get as all really nervous over here :) plllllllleeeease let there be a really long making-up chapter :D
| millie.zhang 11/11/12 . chapter 13
WOW this chapter is great!
I feel sorry for Mac a little...but anyway hope she can get over this...or Will can help her get over this
I love that Jim hugged her. So nice.
Good luck with your coursework matey:-)

Oh finally Will sees the error of his ways! Love Jim telling him off and telling Will he used to be nicer because he was with Mackenzie. Good job Jim! Ok, if you must study and get other things done I suppose we'll let you...I really hate it when real life gets in the way of fan fic!
| forjustaminute 11/11/12 . chapter 13
OMG OMG! What a great chapter!
I have to say as a die-hard Mac fan seeing M hurt always pains me a little...but you really write well!
I particularly adore Jim in this chapter! The way he "confronted" Will and offered Mac his comfort...I'm having a fic-crush on him here!
And the line "Good to have you back, Kenz."...OMG! Melted!
| lilacmermaid33 11/10/12 . chapter 13
LOVE this! I have no idea how you're planning on wrapping this up in just a couple chapters, but this one was really great.
I love the conversation between Will and Jim ... I love the Jim/Mac friendship, and we really haven't seen enough of it on the show since she became friends with Sloan. I love that Will is finally realizing how much he screwed up. I love that Mac came back, and how happy Will was to hear her in his ear ... I just wish she had stuck around to hear him out, because he's really trying now. And I love Will's conversation with Charlie.
Can't wait for the next chapter!

Now - you young lady - give me all this grief about cliff hangers and here you are - leaving a bloody fantastic chapter with "Yeah, but that's not all." - Er... Hello - CLIFF HANGER! ARRGGGGHHHH!
How the hell am I supposed to sleep now? And you know I have a long day tomorrow! I need my sleep!
And while I'm in shouting mode before I get onto *Sigh* mode - can I just ask why the hell Wade is still on the scene and causing distress to my favourite two people (and me?) - I'm sure that I requested him to be well and truly dumped about ten chapters ago! Bloody Wade - Charlie's right " smarmy puss-ass slimbe ball."
Right - I'm feeling calmer now... Matey - this was totally gorgeous as always... you made a tear appear in my eye half way through that when Mackenzie came back... My heart is breaking for her right now... I'm hoping Will will follow her home and sort all this out whenever we find out what's he's doing all afternoon...
Hey - must say - LOVED the line "Good to have you back, Kenz." - total melt...
How long is this review already and I haven't even mentioned how much Jim has gone up in my opinion for telling Will all that and well Charlie, he's just ace! He must love these two you know - the amount he goes through with the pair of them...
Arrrggghhh - they so need to get this sorted - they're hurting each other so much... Please don't let Mac leave... :( Will wouldn't survive without her...
So - basically - amazing chapter once again and I can't wait for the next part...
Thanks so much for posting - lovely surprise... :)
p.s - Very pleased to hear you're back with the coursework as you should be - deadlines and all that! (See that's the grown up part of me talking - the young student part of me is secretly thrilled you stopped it to write this)! lol...
| Katycat1970 11/9/12 . chapter 12
AARRRGGGGHHHHHHH! I want to get these two in a room and bang their heads firmly together... They're totally frustrating... cant they see how they feel about each other... arrgghhh!
Ok - calm down me... Right - Absolutely LOVED the part with Habib - I do like how you write him with Will... Pleased Charlie had a little talk with Mac but gutted to see she's resigned... :(
Think Will is going to be gutted too when he finds out - Charlie needs to be having a 'Fatherly' chat with WIll, sooner rather than later, and tell him to get a move on in fixing this before it's too late... (You wouldn't let Mac actually go would you? no... I'm sure you wouldn't...)
FOr once - Maggie has done something right too! ha ha...
Matey - so thrilled to see another part of this - absolutely loved it (even in my slightly hungover state)! Made me forget the headache for ten mins or so!
Thanks so much for posting - I know you're busy so it was really lovely to see some writing from you - have been missing it soooooooooo much...
Really looking forward to more when you can...
