I'm so thrilled with the snarky banter between Edward & Bella, and I know it's just going to get better & better. Bring on the UST! I loved Port Angeles Players for a similar reason & because you combined it with the Bard. You're writing style is excellent and I'm excited to see where this story is going. Keep up the great work! Cheers!

Third chapter is getting me sucked in! I'm getting really excited about this story. You do a great job with detail- now I'm learning a lot about the ins and outs of the news industry while reading an entertaining story- that's great! My husband worked for Neilsen for many years, so I'm very familiar with the ratings side of television. He left last year and I miss getting the heads up on which of my favorite shows are in danger of being pulled! Thanks for writing- you've got me all excited for the next chapter- I can't wait to *hear* the dialogue between those two crazy kids.

Totally worth the wait of getting some sleep.
Having once upon a time ago on my high school newspaper and taking it way too seriously, this fic just makes me giddy inside. The journalism in it is totally my porn at the moment, i love it so hard.
i can't wait to see this dynamic on air for the first time!

Mary Hart, huh? Ouch! His other innuendo-laced comment about anything else she wanted to share would have made my blood boil, too. I'm loving how much he's already getting under her skin and how she's ready to give as good as she gets. Will be interesting to see how Edward takes to it-but I have complete faith in his verbal sparring ability. Can't wait for the dinner!

This story is AWESOME! Keep up the good work!

I hope Bella gets some nice shots in at Edward at the dinner, without it being too obvious to the execs. Also, thanks for explaining the Mary Hart thing- it made the seizures comment make much more sense!

This put the biggest smile on my face this morning. Their banter is brilliant. I was seriously disappointed at the end of the chapter that they only got to have that one conversation. I'm so geared up for the dinner.
How am I supposed to get back to work now? :)

Oh, and the sparks fly already. Yes, this will be fun. I love how smart and tough, at least concerning her career, you've made her. Yes, she's human and has moments of self-doubt and minor insecurities, but she's not cowed by the challenge of the job. Whatever she doesn't already know she'll teach herself. Love her professional self-confidence.
And this part? Yikes! Holy smoldering, Batman!
"I call dibs on the camera-left chair," Edward announced quietly, as the men around us chatted amongst themselves. "And the left side of anything else you ask me to share as well."
I loved this part:
"I would fry his balls in bacon grease if it was the last thing I did, that arrogant, smirking bas-"
Because everything's better with bacon, don't you know.

Oh I can't wait for this witty ride!

"Don't take your hands off the wheel. You'll be just fine." So, our little Bella is driving the relationship more than she realizes? I’m guessing Carlisle knows his son and sees when the boy is flummoxed.
So Bella has a female lawyer, but I’m sure Bella knows that ‘he’ is used as third person gender neutral, doesn’t she? I understand how some women get riled up by that, but she's a journalist, so wouldn't she know this grammar rule? As an aside, I like to tease my male coworkers (since I'm in science, that's most of them) that their gender is neutral when writing. Some of them also find this funny.
Privacy screen? Can I have one of those for when my kids are driving me nuts? Although I’m sure they would find the sunroof as well. Oh well.
"Gave his mother every grey hair she has" – I have a child like that! She just made me a grandmother. Funny, I don’t remember getting old.
I'll look up the thread soon! I've been failing at them recently, fall is as busy as spring in the garden, but since it's snowing I should have some time tonight. Sorry the review is choppy. I was making notes as I went so I wouldn't forget anything! I simply love your stories! Thanks so much for writing them and making me smile.

LMAO at poor flummacks (I have not a freakin clue how to spell that word and I am way too lazy to look it up) Bella. I think rounds 1 through who knows what are all going to Edward. I hope somehow she can throw him off just a little bit but at the moment, I am not seeing how.

ok so for every chapter i read in books or FF I have a favorite part or sentence or phrase (i'm kind of a nerd). So this chapter is
"I marveled at his ability to piss me off from this distance."
I think I laughed for a good ten min at this, God I love Bella in this story. I love that she is quick, smart, tough and sometimes very vulnerable. Keep up the good work. I can't wait to read more.

Loved this! I love all the jargon, too. I know nothing about television newscasts, or any of the behind the scenes stuff. I have a few friends who've written for the NYTimes and the Journal, been foreign correspondents, etc., but that's about as far as it goes. Oh, except that one of my kids grew up with one of Deborah Norville's kids, but that doesn't really count (except to say that Deborah's a better mom than her career (?) would suggest).
Love the fireworks between Isabella and Edward. I just hope she calms down enough to do her thing as well as she usually does, without getting flustered on camera. I LOVED the line "brains didn't sag or wrinkle and would serve me better over the long term". Hooray for the smart girls!

Thanks for explaining some of the terms at the end! You totally lost me on the parachute thing:) great chapter and i just love her cocky attitude. Its great to see bella as strong on the outside as she is on the inside.
