|Reviews for Five Times Jeannie was Jealous|
| AnneMary chapter 1 . 4/3
She doesn't sound whiney at all! I just felt so sad for her! Poor Jeannie! So many times I thought she just needed to go and curl up and cry somewhere...

Poor Jeannie. Watching someone being so close to Rodney would certainly pull on any sibling's heart strings.
You wrote it beautifully.

Hey, I thought Jeannie was kind of whiny but in a very believable way. I think birth order can tell alot about a person's personality and younger siblings tend to be whinier in general. I'm an older sibling can you tell? Anyways, in this case I think Jeannie comes across as the younger sibling who idolized her older sibling as a hero when she was a child. Then once she figures out that he's human and fallible she's disillusioned and bitter about it, hence the big fight and not talking forever. Now she's jealous because she's always taken Rodney's love for granted and doesn't want to share. It sounds juvenile but family does seem to bring out the best and worst in people. I see Rodney and Jeannie as the kind of siblings who'll get seriously pissed at each other to the point where they can't even be in the same room and they'll hold grudges for ever - but underneath it all they know they love each other. They just don't always like each other.

I like the choice of examples and I don't think you're being unfair to Jeannie.
After all, she does have reason to jealous because John often seems to get on better with Rodney than she does on the occasions when she's around.
Of course she wasn't there for Doranda or when Elizabeth was dying.
Well written and very moving

This really works for me. I know a lot of people who honestly believe that blood trumps all, and I can see Jeannie being that way; she didn't seem evil to me at all, just blind in a common way. I adore stories that explore the non-blood family relationships, and Jeannie's perspective on this one is perfect. She and "Mer" don't get along perfectly, as we've seen, and I'm certain she would have mixed feelings about that. Well done.

This passage: "It’s enticing, and lovely, and entirely charming. He could talk you into walking off a cliff with that voice." Damn straight! A perfect discription of one of the Flan's charm tools. Another one is that 'puppy dog look',*sighs* I love that one too.
This was a wonderful portrayal of "Shine". I love how you gave Jeannie's POV from the standpoint of jealousy. She was jealous but also aware that this was not an 'either/or' but an 'and' situation; Rodney had two families. He was fully loved in both of them, just from different angles.
\0/Well done! Thanks...k

I loved this look at 'jealousy' and thought you wrote this quite well. I can imagine feeling the same way - well done.

I really enjoyed the John and Rodney friendship in this, though I wish Jeannie was a little nicer... Besides that great story! :D

I don't think that you made her whiny or bitchy at all. She was in a rough emotional place and you played that well.
I love your Sheppard/McKay dynamic.

Wow - outstanding story, and a great take on John and Rodney's relationship. And I adore the Douglas Adams shout out ("Thanks for all the fish"), but I would, considering my license plates on my car simply read "40TWO". : )

As a little sister I can definitely empathize with Jeannie. I don't think that she came out whiny or bitch-y at all.
