Excellent, I read the original and was saddened due to the result for Kim and Ron, since I ship them. Then it got worse when I found the various sequels out there that made Kim essentially a they are well-written in most cases, as far as satisfying, they were woefully lacking. Finally found this though and am considering it the official canon of the story, though the original is well-written and ok, in a twisted sort of way. This really eases my mind, bc in stories where Ron and Kim lose due to evil and dark manipulations of by others(I understand the death-fic genre, it has its place and many stories are quite good). Keep up the good work, you have many excellent stories and are very talented. (BTW love the name, used to live in Rochester where Kodak "used" to be, at least most of it)

First time I read this version of it captainkodak1. I have to admit, I was a little shy about reading some of your other stories, but I like this one. Thank you.

This was great, I'm glad that Kim lived and married Ron :) Tara was a nutcase and she didn't deserve him!

Honestly, while I like both this story and the one that came before, I dislike pairing them together like this. Though I understand why you did it, I feel it takes part of the draw of the original away.
To me, part of what made the first "Box of Cuddlebuddies" great was that there was no happy resolution. Just like the Edgar Allen Poe story that inspired it, what drew me in is that she seemed to get away with it.
But, that said, I applaud you for once again adding a dark element to a universe that had relatively little shadow to it.

well-written this time around, and an obviously well-planned plot. It was a good read, and the direction it took was a nice surprise.

Excellent alternative ending. What makes it work is that you can go with either story as each obey the logic of the situation.

As usual a great 'bunny' taken care of by the fabulous Captain, but I was a bit disappointed in the happy ending in this sequel.
We all have to agree that anyone that would formulate a plan as heinous as this one getting rid of Kimmie for personal gain is one sick puppy, eh?
Well, you should have gone the route of having Kim actually die that horrible death in the cistern, and let Tara and Ron get married and settle in that very same house.
Could have expanded from the basis of Poes' "Cask" story and shifted to another of his stories "The telltale heart" type of scenario.
We knew that Taras' "cheese had slid off of her cracker" by her killing Kim in the first place...
I would have set the scene of her killing Ron too because she was haunted by the 'spirit' of Kim.
She would see KP manifest herself in other people, and one cool example would be Tara finally flipping out completely by a last confrontation with 'Kim' and she winds up plunging a sharp pair of scissors into Kim's heart to finally be rid of her... only for Tara to finally realize she actually stabbed Ron.
Or if you really wanted to twist the thing into utter darkness, have the person Tara stabs and kills their only child. YOW!
If you want to write a dark tale based on Poe-type stuff, get DARK and CREEPY and to heck with the fluffy happy endings.
Yeah, I know... this would REALLY creep out your fans, Cap. But if you write stuff like this, go for the jugular... MUUWAHAAHA!

great story, an amazing follow up to the first one
| Zaratan chapter 1 . 9/29/2008
Okay, the scene with Bonnie... freaky.
So Tara is discovered, with all the evidence pointing her way. She can't even speak, she's gone in the head losing everything she worked for.
At least Kim and Ron get a happy ending here, though it wasn't easy. Nicely done.

I remember the original story (I even read it again to make sure) so this was a pleasant surprise.
As someone who is trying to get into law enforcement, the backpack was the hole in the plan. And the dumping of it was very careless on Tara's part...
Not saying you wrote it bad or anything like that (quite the opposite), there is never any 'perfect crime'. Period.
As a added note, reading this story with Johnny Cash's 'Gods gonna cut you down' playing really puts Taras fate into perspective...
Sooner or later gotta cut you down...

Very interesting... but not a bad re-do of the original. Of course you only hope that things work out for those two. Quite the Poe-esque little tale you gave a bright and dark ending at the same time.
Yeah, for Kim to recover, she'd have to take the steps she took for her to have closure in her mind. And with her Ron beside her, her true hero, she will.
Tara, on the other hand, can't see the other side of that wall she now lives behind.
