Although the alternates made a good ending, I like the original. For one, seeing Shawn as the stalker didn't play out quite like I had envisioned it. And two Stephanie and John Cena is just GROSS! lol
Anyway, I really enjoyed this. I wanna get to the sequel, hopefully sometime soon!
| shannygoat chapter 29 . 4/13/2007
i thought this was really good. Now I'm not really one for alternate endings, but I'll give it shot.
Yea...Shawn and Steph got married; wonder how Triple H felt about that. And Therese and Kevin got married and had 2 babies! I LOVE IT!
Ok, off to read the endings now!

somehow I know Kevin wouldn't take this so well, but I didn't expect him to act like that. I can totally understand why though. he was lied to. He thought she was "just doing her job" that she really didn't love him.
It must really suck to know that when you put yourself out there and you've been lied to that nothing will ever be the same.
I feel the sorriest of Kev...I'll make it better baby; don't worry!

I loved this chapter! I so suck at writing action, but this one was action packed! So this Jenkins fella is working for someone..who? I guess I need to read the next one to find out, huh?
Kevin had his suspicions? I thought he was too pussy-whipped to notice how "strong" she was. I wonder if he will forgive her? I'm glad Steph got away, but you know, I still had my suspicions on Shawn.
And Therese got shot! Twice even, I'm glad she whipped that dude's ass! Oh the drama; gotta read the next chapter!
| shannygoat chapter 26 . 4/13/2007
Again, I think Stephanie was taking this stipper thing overboard. How does going to a strip joint equal cheating? But I could have eaten Cena up in this chapter. He was so cute; almost like a little crushed puppy that she was exclusive with Shawn.
And speaking of crushes; Kevin asked Therese to move in with him? She must be REALLY good in bed. Two times and the man wants you to be a permanent fixture in his. Way to go, girl.
I have a funny feeling that she wants to, but that would mean coming clean and risk losing him for the months of lying.
I acutally like the fact that Therese and Steph are now friends. It would suck if she had to leave after this assignment and they weren't friends anymore. I still see their relationship as being volatile. Steph's still a brat and Therese is a hard ass. They don't really mix under the best of intentions. I've loved the development of their relationship the most!

Ok, I'm confused. What's the big deal with Shawn going to a strip club? I go to them all the time. It's not like he was getting a happy ending there or anything was it? A few lap dances; even a private dance in the champagne room isn't grounds for Stephanie's meltdown. She's an overdramatic winch isn't she?
And John Cena smaking her ass? I saw a clip of that on youtube. YUCK! Have I told you how much I hate her? Well, it's more her hair and that pug nose that i dislike.
This chapter was confusing to me. I had to read it about 3 times and I still don't think I got it. It had a lot to do with what was happening on Raw and as you know, I'm completely lost; but I did get that Vince is a prick (but he doens't seem to be now toward her) and that he doesn't like his wife? And this Sable chick is on my nerves. If steph is GM, can't she fire that woman?
Therese has her hands full!
| shannygoat chapter 24 . 4/11/2007
And everybody gets laid! It's about damn time!
I think it's great that they brought Scott in for the birthday bash...but I kinda feel bad for Scotty...here he flew in from God knows where and both of his boys left him to get some ass! ha!
And Kevin said I love you; that can't be good. Therese has this thing about lying to him, and she's keeping a secret from him but now that they've slept together and the I Love You's have been expressed, how is that gonna play out?
Blame the lack of intellegence on the Oxycodone...surgery sucks!
| shannygoat chapter 23 . 4/8/2007
This is going to be a shitty review because I'm running late for church (seems almost blastamist, no) but I found the fight between the girls most entertaining. I've been there before, when you're just so frustrated that you have to steal someone; way to go Steph.
That thing with Cena still is digusting to me! But I love that he thinks he can make all that's ailing her better. And Shawn is stilling so sweet. It must be hard for her to have to ask Therese for her help after she tried to beat her ass. I hate needing someone you don't like.
Anyway, I wanna know who this stalker is. They were laying in weight and managed to take out Therese to get to Steph...I hope she's alright. I have to read more when I get back!
| shannygoat chapter 22 . 4/5/2007
Not being one that plays poker, nor do I understand the rules, I learned something about this game. It's not about skill; but the ability to lie apparently. I laughed out loud with their poker game. That was too funny. My favorite line: "I'd like to thank today's sponsor..." That cracked me the hell up!
I'm glad Stephanie finally got some! It's about damn time. 22 chapters into this story and she finally boned her man. Now if I can only work on Therese. She's killing me. It fucking NASH! He wouldn't have to ask me twice; he wouldn't have to ask me once; more than likely I'd be asking him!
I don't get her. I know she's "on the job" but hell, Steph was taken care of, shouldn't see be able to get her freak on too? She better learn to lighten up. I can't see Nash with her; she's too strick. His character strikes me as easy going. Maybe he'll turn her around. God I hope so.
| shannygoat chapter 21 . 4/5/2007
Another sub-plot that i don't understand is the Mr. America storyline...but that didn't stop me from loving this chapter.
I love how one minute Therese and Steph are giggly and happy together, then the next minute they are hateful bitches. I thought it was funny when Stephy was zapping out and Therese told her to shut up. I also found the scen in Therese's apartment with Stephanie helping her find clothes to be funny. They remind me of sisters they are so unstable.
John and Stephanie...ew! I don't like to even think about that possibly happening. I'm glad that Therese beat Sable. I gather from this story that she's not a desirable character.
Between the stalker, Sable, Vince and not getting any from Shawn, it's understandable why Steph is so moody. She needs to get some; a lot of it and then maybe she'd mellow out. Therese just needs to let her guard down. HOpefully Kevin can help her out in that department!
| shannygoat chapter 20 . 4/5/2007
Ok, so I officially wanna eat Evan's face off. If he isn't the cutest little thing on the planet, i don't know what is. I love the fact that he's afraid that Nash is gonna take his spot in Therese's heart...but you can also tell how much he likes Kevin. I'm sure in his own world, the three would just be friends; Therese would be happy with him around and his relationship with Kevin wouldn't have to change. Sorry buddy; I don't think it's gonna work out that way.
Now Steph is getting on my nerves throwing herself at Shawn. I've been horny as all get out, but after enough rejection, just back off lady. But Shawn is a gentleman if nothing else. I wonder if he's gonna get the balls to ask Hunter for the ok to date Steph seriously. Even though they aren't friends now, they were and it would be the respectable thing to do.
My favorite part, was when Shawn and Kevin were using Evan to see if they could hit the center of the floating tube...funny! And how much nerve does it take to get your freak on in your kids' office? Vince is just skanky.
I have to admit, I get a little lost when you bring up the Raw story lines at that time. I wasn't watching WWE then, and I don't know some of these people. So like I don't know this thing with Sabel (I've only seen her 1 time and that was in Playboy; don't know her role on the show) and this guy Zach (I don't know anything about him); but I can still read past it and formulate my own conclusions.
Anyway, good chapter; off to read the next one!
| shannygoat chapter 19 . 4/2/2007
If this review isn't that good, I'm sorry, but I'm so freaking sleepy that it's sinful. TMI, but I've been adding to my porn collection and I decided that I'm going to write a fic and a paper for my social deviance class on the movie Taboo, (I love how I watch porn and make it seem educational!)
Anyway, on to the story:
Therese can try to pretend all she wanted that she was "cold" and didn't wanna get in bed with Nash. But let's be realistic...it's NASH! He wouldn't have had to ask me twice!
I think the flirting between them is priceless. Too bad he's got a messed up back, because I'm pretty damn sure he wanted to be laying the Smackdown on her. I also think it's cute that she's not domestic. Not that I would expect her to be...look at what she does for a living. Although she takes care of her younger brother, she doesn't strike me as the warm and cuddly type. So she can only make limited meals, Nash is not only sexy but he can cook too. Nice role reversal.
Shawn is so full of crap. All he had to do was Steph the truth that he feels bad about sleeping with her because of Hunter. I almost feel sorry for her. However the serious amount of late night creeping and cockblocking made me laugh out loud. These women are about to kill each other with their looks because they both know what they want, but they are too chickenshit to just go do it, for fear of what the other might think.
Ok, I'm sure I was gonna say something else, but my brain is slowly shutting down. I promise a better review on the next chapter!
| shannygoat chapter 18 . 3/14/2007
Couple of things about this chapter, but I'm at work so it might not be that great of a review...First, I don't know much about Test, but from everything I've read he's a creep. I'm glad Kevin got in his face. And might I say that it was hilarious that now Therese wants to be his grilfriend when she needs to be saved...
And may I say that Kevin is a little high strung. He really went off on Test and he really didn't do anything to Therese...is it that Kev's sexually frustrated?
Shawn and Evan are so cute running through the building, throwing stink bombs...I could eat them up! But EVOLUTION? Of all the guys to screw with, wrong move boys!
I love this image "But it seemed everything she did brought her face to face with some naked part. She was ashamed for being turned on when all he wanted was to get undressed so he could soak in a hot bath." Come on, it's Big Sexy! I can dig it!
I thought it was perfect that Steph wondered how many identities Evan had. He's Mark, Evan, Therese's brother, her godson, Shawn's nephew...that boy should be confused!
Classic Line: "So what if there's a little bit of plastic under there, he thought, I would want her either way." I actually felt bad for Steph. Getting that close only to have Shawn reject her...that must hurt.
Great stuff. Hopefully I can get to more soon!
| shannygoat chapter 17 . 3/12/2007
I can't really read the relationship between Stephanie and Therese. I know they are closer than they were in the beginning but do they like each other, now? Sometime it seems like it, sometimes, not so much. I like to think of it as two powerful women struggling to find common ground. Steph's rich and use to people doing whatever she wants. Therese is physically strong and intimidating, so she can make you do what she wants. I don't know; I just find their relationship interesting. They're not the typical employer/employee but they are far from girl friends.
Speaking of girlfriends how cute is Kevin Nash asking are the dating. I want him to ask me that! And how dare she come up with excuses...it's KEVIN NASH! I know some people might read it for the Shawn Michaels angle, but I'm all about the Nash story; that's far more interesting to me. Sidenote: I don't really like Michaels that much. He's okay, I guess but nothing to write home about. I at least thought he was cute in his Playgirl days. Now...not so much. And I'm not a Stephanie fan either. I rarely read stories with her in it, because her face bothers me and I hate her hair. Pretty shallow huh? i don't know the woman, I have to go on superficial crap to get by...
Ok, so Therese should go across the hall in the middle of the night; Shawn should wait until Evan's asleep and do Steph on the kitchen counter and Evan should get to go swimming whenever he wants! :-)
Great chapter; I hope to get another one in today!
| shannygoat chapter 16 . 3/1/2007
Can I tell you how much I love Evan? He's so funny. Ok, so I think that I'm officially caught up. I skimmed the other chapters and I know I stopped around here before. The ones after this are vaguely familiar so this is as good a place to start as any.
Ok, first LOVE the He-Man references...was my favorite cartoon, back when Adam was a little gay in the 80s. I can't watch that new beefed up steriod pumping He-Man crap. That sucks.
Now, I can't decide if I like Stephanie or not. She gets on my nerves one minute, then I feel sorry for her the next. The jury's still out on that one.
And why are you apologizing from straying from the real life events on Raw? It's fiction...you can have Kevin Nash be the CEO of WWE if you wanted. It's make believe. YOu know it pisses me off when people try to critize that. In a story I have Dave on Raw, and Evolution reformed, do you think I care? It's my story, this is how it happens in Shannyland. If you wanted to read about the real Raw pick up the magazine. If you want some fiction this is a damn good one.
Can't wait to read the next one.
