Great story. They really deserved a happy ending.
| GatsbyParty 3/13/13 . chapter 13
I finally got around to finishing this story and it was one of my favorites of all time. I love what you did with Hyde and Jackie and how you got them together. I also love how you got Donna and Eric back together.
This was some of your best work. You made me laugh and I enjoyed all the smut (lol).
The epilogue was a fantastic way to address what happened in Season 8.
I completely fell in love with your Steven Hyde and I love how you redeemed him at the end of this story.
FANTASTIC! So entertaining. You're the best at writing JH together. This is one of my all time favorites, right along with 20 Questions.
I've read all of your stories already. You mention in your profile page that you're working on a new That 70s show fic and I can't wait to read it. I know you're busy writing for Veronica Mars and I see that you've gotten a great response to that story but can I persuade you to maybe write a JH one-shot anytime soon? Your writing is missed on the site and it would be a nice treat for all your fans. I'm one of them.
P.S. I don't know if you've heard but my friend who is a huge Veronica Mars fan told me that they're raising money to make a movie to come out in 2014. She was super excited. I wish they did a That 70s show movie where they fix Season 8 and get Jackie and Hyde back together. Oh well. We at least have fanfiction.
Take care. Don't take too long to post a Zennie story.
- Your biggest fan :)

("At least call me Steven again while you trample my balls." he requested bitterly.)
HAHA! I could total hear him saying that.
Damn, what can I say? Obviously I loved it. I stayed up into the wee hours of morning to read and review every chapter. It was an absolute delight. I never thought re-hashing something that happened on the show, except with a twist, would be so engaging. But that's what happens with good writing. You pull me in!
Honestly, this was brilliant, a really entertaining and lovely read. It's unfortunate that some of the best fics you'll ever read have so few reviews compared to other fics that have 1000s and a mediocre plot/prose/character development. You really do deserve more reviews for this. I hope you're satisfied with my rubbish but endearingly gushing reviews that praise your dialogue and seamless exposition and character analysis. You did a great job with this. Instant favourite. :)

Damn you! You actually have me feeling sorry for Kelso. That NEVER happens. Don't get me wrong; I love the guy, but I almost never feel sorry for him.
("Man, I may have been with tons of chicks but so has Hyde, and a lot of his chicks were way older and skankier than the ones I've been with. They must've taught him some fancy moves, because Jackie was screaming like he was beating her or something. How can I compete with that?")
And then you make me laugh with this. I just love you. But I have to remain faithful to the fic. I mean I shelled out five bucks for the Cracker Jacks ring (or however many quid that crap costs). Love is eternal, man.
(Kelso may be a close friend, but there was no fucking way Hyde was prepared to go back to his colorless life before that pain-in-the-ass cheerleader burrowed her way under his skin like a wood tick.)
*sighs* *melts* *dissolves into the bed*
Seriously, mate, you are doing horribly wonderful things to my heart right now with this fic. :) Loved the bit with The Ramones at the end. And now onto the epilogue. Why must this fic end? *sighs*
| chromeknickers 1/24/13 . chapter 11
(Jackie was by far the hottest chick he'd ever hooked up with and even though she wasn't that experienced, to him she was the best in bed. Sex actually meant something when he had it with her, whereas before it was just a mechanical means to an end that felt good while it was happening, but afterward always made him feel emptier than before. Not with Jackie. The feeling he got from being with her always lingered like a good high or a nice-looking sunset. He carried that feeling with him all day until he got to see her again. He was totally fucked, he knew, but it was out of his hands at this point.)
*sighs* I love your way with words and ability to get into my head, again without even know who I am or how to get to my head. This is EXACTLY how I reason Hyde feels about his sexual relationship with Jackie. It's the best because he loves her, because she means something to him. I'm sure the sex he ends up having with Sam is hot, but only because she is experienced and he has to work himself up to get in the mood for it. In the end, once the mechanical act is over, he feels nothing. But with Jackie, it's always there - that feeling, that sunshine. :)
(In some strange way, he was kind of happy knowing she had the ability to play him. It made her a pain in the ass, but a worthy adversary. He knew life with Jackie would never be boring.)
Again, you keep hitting the mark. *thumbs up* ;D
Jackie and Hyde's loud love-making, Fez's inappropriately creepy stalker (yet hilarious) comments, Kelso's inability to put two and two together, and Eric's flippant sarcasm... yeah, it's official that I love this fic. I'm putting a ring on it's finger and taking it to Vegas. ;)
("There is no candy food group, Kelso.")
I snorted. I literally snorted at this. Haha. Yeah, like I said above. In love with this fic. Jackie and Hyde are doing things the RIGHT WAY this time. :3
| chromeknickers 1/24/13 . chapter 10
Ah! I knew something could happen between Fez and Lucy! Yay! \o/
("Yeah, and then you punched me in the stomach and stole that log of cookie dough from me." he reminisced. "Ahh, the perks of living next door to your bully.")
HAHA! I love Eric. And, honestly, I really like Eric and Donna's interactions in this story. Normally I tend to gloss over their interactions since they're not a terribly exciting couple. But you're actually making Donna work for it, which makes it a rewarding read. :)
(She had felt this way about him for a long time and he realized at that moment, that he felt something for her the entire time too but his head was too far up his own ass to notice.)
YES! I always felt these two had a thing for each other. Maybe not before prom but definitely after. Jackie ALWAYS went to Hyde and Hyde went to friggin' JAIL for Jackie. I just love how you bring together all these little tidbits - all flowing and casual and not all just a block of stuff exposition. I must thank you for that, and for Hyde's boyish nodding into Jackie's chest. That was so DAMN cute! *melts into a puddle of goo*
Awwww! They got back together. Seriously, Donna really should have worked to get Eric back. As much as Hyde is hot and sexy and most girls seem to like the bad boy type, Eric's the real keeper out of the gang. :)

(He swung the door open and was quickly greeted by his own personal version of how hell might be decorated. "Jesus Christ!")
HAHA! Oh Lord, you crack me up. It's so nice to read great fanfiction and get totally invested in the story. It's rare. I'd say it's rare these days but it's just plain rare in general.
Jackie's confession melted my heart. I'm surprised I'm alive and typing right now. That was a seriously adorable scene, and Hyde's reaction was equally adorable (all wide-eyed and shocked like a little boy). If I had two hearts they'd both be melted... and I'd be just as equally dead. Luckily it was a metaphorical melting. ;)
The JxH moments are just kill me, in the best possible way. And Hyde isn't over-reacting. Well, he is but he's getting over it quickly. Of course Jackie love you, you dumbass! Can't wait to see them officially get together. But poor Lucy. I'm hoping she hooks up with Fez, maybe. I still like her, even if she's square. :)
| chromeknickers 1/23/13 . chapter 8
("Well, Steven's not going to talk about shopping and we have to chat about something afterward in bed. Besides, I kind of find it interesting. Nobody ever bothered talking to me about that kind of stuff, so how was I supposed to know if I'd like it or not?")
Omg, so cute. I love how natural you explain what essentially are my thoughts. I'd say stop reading my mind, but it produces such quality dialogue (forgetting the fact that this was written well before I started reading, so I know you weren't writing this for my benefit). But, yeah, loving the little Zennie tidbits. I'm also loving the fact that Donna and Jackie are actually friends. Donna has the potential to be so forgiving with Jackie (or at least able to shrug off her vitriolic words) and Jackie can be pretty damn good at having someone's back.
I KNEW Hyde was going to misinterpret the broken record but thank you Baby Jesus (and you) that he grew a brain. Seriously, Jackie DOES make him stupid. Because until he dated her he was never the jealous, jump-to-conclusions guy. I'll admit his possessiveness with Jackie is hot, but the unwarranted jealousy always made me roll my eyes (yet it was still great drama). :D
(She couldn't believe how observant yet oblivious Eric could manage to be at the same time.)
Again, you so effortless posit such wonderful exposition that is not only incredibly accurate but worded in a way that flows within the context of the story. It makes me smile. :)
And the Jackie x Hyde moment was just wonderful. *sighs contently*
| chromeknickers 1/23/13 . chapter 7
Haha! Oh Eric and your word vomit. How I miss thee.
(Dealing with Jackie reminded Hyde of those people who are dumb enough to illegally keep baby zoo animals like tigers and chimps as pets. For some reason, they believe that through their love, these wild animals can be turned into domesticated pets. Just because something is freaking adorable, does not mean that it's safe. These idiots feed and bathe their tigers, give them love, and generally forget that they are living with feral predators. Then one day, out of the blue, the tiger just loses its shit and mauls its human parent to death.
It's not really the animal's fault, because that's what a tiger does and you have no business messing around with a tiger, much less letting your guard down around it. Any idiot who ever lulled themselves into a false sense of security around a wild tiger - or in his case, a 5'2" vixen with a mean shin kick, really made their own bed and needs to lie down in it and just shut the fuck up.)
BEST FUCKING ANALOGY EVER! Omg, that was great! Poor Hyde. Of course we, the audience, know why Jackie's so hesitant but Hyde is so insecure. Hell, I think he might be worse than Jackie. The two of them are so damn insecure yet put up this false front. You just want to shake the hell out of them and tell them to communicate properly. I love that you're doing them justice.
And I could just kiss you for having Donna and Jackie have a genuine conversation about Hyde. No Donna getting all self-righteous and declaring Jackie and Hyde's relationship as creepy and unnatural and had to be terminated. I mean, what the hell, man? This is so much better and more realistic. I know they were going for laughs on the show, but the way Donna and Eric freaked out made me think both Donna and Eric were in love with Hyde and jealous of Jackie. It was weird! (Also, love that Hyde had Jackie's knickers under his pillow). :D
("No. I can't go down that road again with you. It was like watching a National Geographic special.)
HAHA! You're killing me here. I actually snorted out loud at this. I seriously love your dialogue. :3
| chromeknickers 1/23/13 . chapter 6
(He wasn't surprised Kelso still felt that way about her, especially now that he understood what all the hype was about. Nobody made a guy feel more special than Jackie did, and that's a tough thing to give up, which is why he had no intention of doing that.)
You're making me melt here. Gah, this was chalked full of Jackie/Hyde goodness. Our little Hyde luuuurves Jackie, and vice versa. Loved the bit with him hiding her knickers. *giggles* And Donna actually apologising and getting a dose of her own medicine. If only this happened on the show. Your way of going about things makes Jackie and Hyde's relationship so much stronger, since they seem to communicate a lot better. Don't get me wrong; they're still wonderfully in character but are expressing themselves better.
| chromeknickers 1/23/13 . chapter 5
I always wondered if Jackie's not doing *that* was sodomy or fellatio. I'd assume the latter since the former wouldn't even be in her vocabulary, but I like your observation better. *snickers*
(In hindsight, it all seemed kind of obvious, control freaks usually are. It was a nice surprise though, because she was just the right amount of kinky-the right amount for him, at least.)
Perfection! Exactly how I imagine her to me, along with the comment on how Jackie is like two different people with Hyde - a bit of the old her and a relaxed, playful version of herself. And, honestly, I have to say that what makes Hyde and Jackie do attractive is that they balance each other out. Hyde isn't nearly as attractive, sexy, and awesome than he is with Jackie, and Jackie isn't nearly as wonderful without Hyde's influence. Without each other they are just shells or, in S8, pod people. And I love how you paint this in your story.

First off, you are amazing at UST. I just love it. And oh my God do you have me clapping here at Lucy's little observations/barbs. I know Donna and Kelso are friends, but we all know Donna would have been flippin' the F out if after Eric broke off their engagement decided to go on a road trip with Jackie. She'd NEVER forgive Jackie, and Jackie has always 'hated' Eric. Lol. But, yeah, loving this story.
| chromeknickers 1/23/13 . chapter 3
Dear God, the sexual tension! I could cut it with a knife. I love, love, love your Hyde. He's so in character and so the Hyde I fell in love with in S5. S5-6 Hyde was the best. *sighs* This is just a delight to read. Sorry my reviews are rubbish. :/
