|Reviews for If It's Worth Saving Me|
| Halfcent chapter 29 . 3/15/2010
I just don't know where to start with this chapter.
I cried in happines for Jo and Dougie, I laughed, I cheered...
The reunion was just right. Not overdone, but just sweet enough and emotional enough to make it just the way it should be.
I love the way you portray Parker, too...all of them, really, but you get her better than most Leverage writers I've seen so far. Most people portray her as simple minded and child like. But you get her the way she really is, I think...an adult with social issues and an eccentric personality...I love it, and I love that she can identify with Dougie while still being the adult. Most people don't see her that way, but I do, and it seems that you do, too.
I love that Ron is willing to let Dougie set the pace for his and Jo's future relationship. Dougie will have a lot of issues to get throuhg, and adding something like that to the mix right away could be too much for any kid after what he's been through. I think the three of them will be very happy, and they have several life long friends now, I think. And I'm very glad that Dougie's not losing Hannah in all of this. I was concerned about that part, but as usual, you've covered all the bases just right and left no loose ends.
I'm glad it was Jo that handled Higgert. Seems like poetic justice to me, lol. And Sophie was quick thinking to lift his gun from him, but I thought she had an ulterior motive to standing in his way and letting him push her out of his way. I guess I was right about that part, lol. And Higgert will sure have his hands full when the other thugs wake up!
And I meant to say this in the last chapter, but I think I forgot...I think that was the perfect thing to do with the money, making sure it went to the little girl (don't remember her name now...Julie?). I loved that.
Well, I'm ready for the next chapter, even if I hate to see it end.

Yes I'm always up to read another chapter. And you mentioned paperclips. Yah!

Yes, I'll stick around for another chapter. Higgart went down easily ... he's suck a (edited for language).
Great job. I'll be happy to see them home and Parker bundled up with a big plate of cookies. I made chocolate chip molasses honey cookies. They were a hit ... no pun intended. Apparently great minds think alike.

I enjoyed that. I really liked the part where Parker dive bombed Mike! :)

That was the best reunion EVER! Fluff, banter and ass-kicking, don't get much better than that! Loved the way you wrote the fight, just doing Jo's POV and the aftermath of the other guys'. Loved that Parker found Dougie and Jo knew she would. LOVED the banter back and forth before the fight. Quite clever. I would pay big money to see this scene on video. Would be epic. Oh, and Loved that Sophie got the gun. GO TEAM! lol. And I LIKE Eliot's name! haha, but Nate's 'you get used to that' and hardison's 'or else' was pretty hilarious. Great stuff her and OF COURSE I want more! Hell, I'd happily read a sequel...

Love Eliot patching up the relationship between Dougie and Hannah.
Of course, Parker would let him talk to Jo. She likes kids and wants them to have a happy childhood like she didin't have. Dougie so going to have a thing for wacky blonds when he grows up.
"Parker said she'd be around, but don't ask me what that means." that made me laugh. Parker comes and goes as she pleases, leaving confusion and theft in her wake. What is she up to? Having fun at Higgert's expense?
Of course, Parker got the sample. If it can be stolen, she'll get it.
Hannah and Sophie was funny. Poor Sophie. I can see her face.
Bet Parker steals Hardison's cookies.

I'm literally doing a happy dance right now. That was AWESOME! Oh man, so good. SO SO good. But my absolute FAVORITE part was Eliot's Dialogue to Mrs. Martens. SO smooth. So dangerous. So badass. It was awesome. I loved the boys' banter at the end too, with 'will you marry me' to Sophie and 'need help with your twilight posters' lol. It was great. And 'does nana know she has a twin'. LOL. great stuff. Just great great stuff. I can't freakin wait till you post more...
lol. I couldn't resist...

Lol, I have no idea what's happening, but I'm SO along for the ride. I can't believe he beat up Ron and Mike...er, TRIED to beat up Ron and Mike! It kind of sucks that Eliot has to be away from the team so much, but you're doing a good job of keeping him in the loop. Can't wait for more of this. And by that I mean I can't wait to click the little arrow that will send me to chapter 28...

OMG, you scared me with that earbud trick! I hope that doesn't come back to haunt us later...
Little Dougie was adorable, I'm glad Parker was able to get his side. They obviously love each other very much. Maybe they can help Olivia while they're doing all this good stuff. Lol.
I'm kinda sad to know it's gonna be over soon...
| pdljmpr6 chapter 25 . 3/10/2010
Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. I don't even know what just happened. This plot is unbeleivable. I'm glad the birth mom is a sympathetic person. Maybe one day she and Jo and Doug can all be friends or something. Wow. I must read more. So many other things I should be doing...but I must read more...
| pdljmpr6 chapter 24 . 3/10/2010
Are you kidding? I loved all the earbud dialogue. I think it's my favorite part of tihs fic. lol! And I'm really glad this turned into a novel. It's incredible. I liked Parker's little exchange with Dougie too. But what was up with Reid. I mean, we know Doug planned to kill Jo. And we know his mother either knew about it or helped with it, but what about the baby...
| pdljmpr6 chapter 23 . 3/10/2010
I am surprised...on SO many levels. Eliot is a pure genius (and I TOTALLY Called them being 'her team' way back when) I was glad to have Ron and Mike back. Love those guys. And Jojo. Haha, I like that name.
And I'm REALLY surprised about the money. I mean, them being broke wasn't hard to figure out by the reaction from the team, but Dougie having all of the money and the grandparents living off him? I'm both surprised and disgusted. That's just...wow. I can't even think of what to call that besides...despicable. Now I sound like Daffy Duck. lol.

Interesting. This kid already has a personality. He clearly loves Jo, he was really excited about the letter. I like hannah too, and that one guard, the younger one. TripB can kiss my ass or maybe just the bottom of Jo's boot. Eliot is surprisingly good with kids too I think. Hope this all goes according to plan...
Have you noticed that a lot, if not all, of my reviews end with ...? I wonder why that is...
| pdljmpr6 chapter 21 . 3/10/2010
I like all the different reactions for the team, makes it very real. And Parkers always the loose canon anyway. but I see that she did everything she could. I like that Eliot was there for her the entire time too, and nate's quiet undersstanding. Great chapter, I don't mind exposition at all. Now lets get that kid!
| pdljmpr6 chapter 20 . 3/10/2010
I didn't mind the rehash, it still felt fresh. and I didn't see her confession coming AT ALL. I wonder whats the story there...
