What an extraordinary story, absolutely top shelf. The complexity of the characters, the fact the story spent as much time dealing with the after effects of the trauma as the case itself. Jane and Lisbon finding each other.

What a wonderful Jane and Lisbon story! I'm so glad I found it and am certainly going to read it again. Thank you very much for writing it. You really have a way with portraying our favorite cop and consultant.

Excellent story. Canon details of Lisbon's background took a different path, but no matter. Your Lisbon is more complex, tougher, and more interesting. Thank you for writing this.

I just read your wonderful story in one go, too, and therefore did a real long lunch break (its a good thing I work from home these days ;-)). This was absolutely beautiful! You crafted an interesting setting with a perfect balance between a suspenseful plot and emotional, heartwrenching parts. My favorite part was the scene on Lisbons balcony. Thank you for sharing!

You have written a superb story! I felt every moment and emotion, I got pretty emotional near the end. You have portrayed the characters exactly how they would act, all the while adding depth and a wonderful storyline. The secondary characters were well fleshed out and almost seemed realistic. Great work writing this story. I look forward to reading other stories written by you.

This is the third time i read this ffic, but last week i signed up myself here, because ive started writing ffics now, and i feel i need to review the ffics i loved when i started reading fanfiction. Yours is one of my fav fics, because you seems to understand completely the characters of the tvshow and you make them play as you want in your story. Thats amazing.
Also, the story is really good, and the descriptions of actions are awesome. Jane and Lisbon in the room and in the shower, the fight in which Lisbon is amazing... those were my fav parts of this fic!
Thanks for sharing it with us! Ill read more of your ffics! ;) bye!

Brilliant. The tension of this story is so real, I could feel everything Jane and Lisbon went through.
I'm just sad to see you didn't carry on writting for this show, this was amazingly profound at every detail.

I decided to write a review because I realized it wasn't fair not to let you know about how I love your story and about how sometimes I go back to it and read it again, like one of my favorite books on my shelf, since before I had an account and could actually leave a comment. Keep on writing, you're really talented!

Really powerful story. How could anyone think Lisbon was dirty? :( Poor Lisbon

One word : excellent !
You're a great author, just keep on doing such a good job. Can't wait for reading your next Mentalist stories...
| cutecanuck chapter 13 . 12/14/2009
beautiful writing! i read this in one sitting - through the night - though i really ought to be in bed. first, you created a plausible storyline that fits in the original mentalist universe, but simultaneously managed to really put lisbon and jane through something entirely unique. you changed their relationship through the course of this story without making them completely OOC. but perhaps most impressively, you stayed firmly away from many of the potential pitfalls that were around you everywhere (falling in love as they're pretending to make love, cho bursting in to save lisbon just in time, etc). i was almost angry with you for putting teresa through something that traumatic, certainly angry with cho for not getting there earlier. your writing pulled those emotions out of me. there is so much angst in this story, yet you still managed a happy ending. my only critique would be that jane is possibly a little too perfect - to my eye, he's more broken than the jane here, who approaches lisbon at the end of this story with a love that is nearly perfect in its generosity and selflessness. and yet, this is a story more about lisbon than it is about jane, and i wonder if you could have wrapped it up so nicely (without doubling the length of it) if you hadn't made him that way.
my only real beef with you is that you've written far too few mentalist pieces, and i don't watch your other shows. :)
oh, and while i'm still here, i very much appreciate the fact that you didn't write a sex scene between them. i agree with your assessment that what they've been through is already so much more. but as someone who just enjoys reading, i also have to say that they're very hard to write well, and there's often little point in reading bad literary porn.

AWW! Seriously, this fic had a knot in my throat, had me bouncing on my chair and covering my mouth with my hand -it's really late- waay too many times. And omg. OMG this last chapter.. I mean.. there have been quite a few key moments on a lot of chapters, but I didn't see this one coming. Jane proposing. It makes it even more sweet that they hadn't make love beforehand. And everything about this fanfic is just great. I loved Lisbon's line about him having to stop making her cry, as well as the whole confession of Jane, the rain, the wine, the embrace.
And of course, I couldn't left out that particular scene with the bathroom.. me being a fluffy/waffy shipper of Jisbon.. it was priceless. As well as the fanfic as a whole, I mean.. at first I was kinda mad at you for making Lisbon a dirty cop, although I had this suspicion that it wouldn't be that way, so I kept reading to discover a rather complicated story as the background. I really admire writers that have it in them to write this complex stories with a lot of characters and background -that sometimes they're not even familiar with, but do their research- like this one.
I think that all of the characters where extremely IC, considering the circumstances. Although angsty, I also enjoyed the first rough talk that Jane had with Lisbon, I mean.. it wasn't just about him kissing her and her giving in. She was actually really pissed and broken, and it showed.
I can't deny that I'd have liked a little more romance in some parts, but I can't say they're really missing. It's like on the show, like they give you tiny bits of fluff of flirting you tend to value and cherish those moments even more. Although in here, I was really glad that this one ended up on one chapter dedicated to them, I feared that was like some stories -in all fandoms- that during all the story the couple (or the characters) have been suffering and at the end ok, so they get together or get alright, but it's just a paragraph long... so you don't get to smile enough to overpower the know in your throat that has been there for too long.
I was clapping my hands together and squeaking, honestly, when reading the proposal scene (and going 'aww' several times, as well as the confession part).
The fact that all of her team and Minelli cared that much about her was clearly shown, and I also liked Lee. Weird for me that I don't normally like OC's. This one had a character, and she specially won me over with the "that's my girl" line when they were observing the obnoxious fbi agent verbally assault Lisbon.
Ook so I wrote a lot.. hopefully you don't mind, hehe!
Cookies -with chocolate milk- for you. You deserve them. I hope you write more about them in the future, good luck in all your projects :)!
