I am BEGGING you...
PLEASE update this fic soon, cause basically i've spent three days reading and re-reading what you have posted already. So, for the sake of my sanity, i am desperately pleading for an update on this.
One of my favorite things about this fic is the dialogue/interaction between Jean and Emma- from the mental conversation to the witty bantering, which, coupled with the emotion that you convey through the characters, incites an eagerness in the reader for more.
and I LOVE how Emma calls Jean 'Tiger.' It's deliciously sexy.
hope to see more soon,

Top two favourite quotes from this chapter:
In second place it's: "You're really serious aren't you?" - Scott
Reason? My version of Jean's response made me crack up:
Jean *rolls eyes*: No Scott, you caught me, this was all an elaborate plot Emma and I constructed to pay you back for your inconsiderate and selfish macho 'I-have-to-be-strong-all-the-time-you-can't-possibly-understand-me-god-I'm-such-a-tortured-soul' behaviour and bruise your male pride. The enjoying the hot lesbian sex involved was just a fortunate (and welcome) side benefit...'
*tumble weed blows past*
I have an acquired humour...
Ahem, moving on...
But in first place: "I need you" Emma & Jean
Reason: Seeing Emma struggle to say that... I felt all maternal and 'aw' (WTF is wrong with me? I never say 'aw'...) Not very coherent, but *shrug* it's all I have.
There was a good balance of Scott's feelings of disbelief and betrayel and the soft love of Emma and Jean in this chapter. I was breathing out a sigh of relief when Jean wasn't attracted to Scott anymore, things would've got very messy if she still did...
As always, looking forward to the next chapter...
Oh, BTW, if you want check out my profile. I should have 1st chapter of my Emma/OC fic up...(it's been hanging round long enough -the characters are beginning to get pissed off with me... ;D) You and Princess Alexandria's stories encouraged me to get my arse in gear...

Scott's a dick. You've got one of the dickiest Scott's around. I don't know if that's good or bad but it's meant to be a compliment. You're ability to capture the true nature of a total douchebag (Scott) is amazing. Kudos to you. This chapter is great! I look forward to more and I am so so glad you update quickly.

I am very much enjoying this story. I can't wait till you write more.

Breakdown of chapter:
Jean: No. I love Emma. That's it. Goodbye. See you later.(okay, that last bit *may* have been in Shrek ;D)
Scott: ... WTF! *sound of door closing*
Heh, drama, you got to love it... Another great chapter, I thought Jean's confused reactions to Scott were realistic (I'm glad she didn't regret choosing Emma) but felt really bad for Frost(hang in there kiddo)...
Can't wait for the next chapter, what will Scott do now? (Tip: Keep away from Emma, you prick)
BTW, do you have a rough idea how many chapters are left?

Oh yeah, scott deserved that one! waitin...

I really liked the comfortable ease of this chapter and the way the characters continued to bond (my relief over the lack of angst was intense ;D). The way you write their relationship doesn't seem old or static (like quite a lot of fics where the interest dies after the sex is had) which is *very* refreshing. Seeing Emma's vulnerabilities always makes me soften (ok, melt), but showing her struggle to do so and her maintaining the cold exterior with the others as well, makes it much more believable.
Thanks for changing the way telepathy is read now, it makes it *so* much easier...
I really, really, really can't wait for the next chapter. (I keep hearing the Darth Vader theme from Star Wars...)
Frost vs. Summers - Cat Fight of the Century! Place your bets now, people!

Great chapter! But damn you and your cliff hangers!... again, great chapter.

I am fumbling for words to describe how much I love this fic. The characterization is to die for. I love it how Emma and Jean slowly but surely formed a friendship and how it developed into something more. Your description on how they both feel fits so perfectly into the characters that it's painfully easy to picture every scene.
Your attention to detail in the manner of how both feel in regards of each other and their surroundings is also so good that it helps making their relationship realistic. The pace of the story also works very well for the storyline, and I can not wait for Emma and Jean's relationship to truly "beging" e.g. them being a couple all the way - though you may argue they have been for a while. I am just a sucker for the "new couple stage" where there is some giddiness and the image of Emma as giddy makes me grin.
Anyways, can't wait to see their relationship develope, I love it .

very very nice. I love the pacing of this.

Scott 0 - Emma 1
About time too... I'm glad Emma is finally feeling love, *sniff* it's so beautiful...
Although the dreaded 'morning-after' is yet to come, yes, the time when budding relationships are /most/ vulnerable...
I can imagine the increased amount of hatred Emma's going to get now, for seducing the X-men's 'golden girl' (married to their captain to boot) and it ain't gonna be pretty. Especially when Scott gets back O: (please let Emma -or maybe Jean- bitch slap him *hopeful smile*)
I'm really enjoying this, hope you update soon ;D
