It's a pity Janice is not intersted in settling down with Phoebe, because they get on very well, but of course she wants Chandler.
I was a bit surprised at Joey hugging *and* kissing Chandler in CP - might Gunther not object, "This is a family place"? Unfair, but very common.
In the show, Rachel points out to Ross at the party that
Emily is clearly interested in him - one of her more altruistic acts. But she could be telling herself it wouldn't go anywhere.
I don't know Leakey's theory on monogamy, perhaps you should send it to me privately.

Very pleased that you've started this again. This is a nice moving everything along chapter, though I will have to check back to remind myself what has happened.

Interesting story. I like the references to thing that happened in the actual episodes. Sad to see that you're not continuing, though.

It was nice of you to tell us that at the end! But I think what Joey needs is to get over his denial that Chandler really does love Janice (he may say, "I know" but he doesn't really believe it, or he wouldn't do this to Chandler). I should think Chandler will be very hard to console; maybe that will do the trick, when he sees that Chandler is not happy, but trying to hide that he's miserable.
Does Janice not know that it was Joey who prompted Chandler into telling her that she must go back to Gary?
Joey is coming out of this at the moment like the selfish brat he can often be.

Perhaps because I can't share Joey's hatred of Janice, I find him intensely irritating in his refusal to acept that Chandler loves her. But it is well handled, and the stuff about Chandler's father is good, very plausible where made up abnd building cleverly on what is revealed. Oh, those uncut versions that we often don't see over here!

Forgot my promise to review this. I find Joey's attitude, that he's not gay, it just seems right with Chandler, to be very plausible (and have used it myself in TOW Monica's Baby). His simple-minded ideas about Chandler dumping Janice (who is behaving with amazing self-denial, but I suppose it's an index of hr love for Chandler) ring true. It's good to see Chandler being honest with Janice. I look forward to seeing this resolved.

*cries* poor Joey and Chandler! I hope everything works out OK...I don't really want Janice to be involoved in a relationship with them in the end...but I don't want her to get hurt either, she seems so nice...Oh well...Update soon!

Oh Yay! They finally kissed! Yay! *runs around screaming and yelling happily* Joey and Chandler sitting in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G! lol yeah a bit too happy huh? lol well update soon please! I wanna find out what happens next!

(long exhalation) *Finally*! Clever use of the porn. But ther's still a way to go. I'm glad to see you're on a roll with this one.

Using Gunther - brilliant! Yes, he could well perceive the parallels. Good going. Things are really approaching crisis point.
| Serena CrystalMoon chapter 22 . 4/8/2004
MORE! More, more, more, more! You just HAVE to update and as soon as possible!

Always happy to see more of this. An excellent analysis and presentation of Joey's behaviour, and even better that it is Monica and Rachel who are showing him to himself, in a way that sounds appropriate for them. I continue to be vastly intrigued by the question of how you will get from here to the loving threesome at the beginning of the story.
