Jealousy is a powerful bitch, ain't she?
Mary, you've played with fire just a little too closely, a little to easily. The burning shall now commence.
| R J Lupin's Kat chapter 3 . 8/5/2010
Who needs 'monster moments'? This entire chapter was real, was so very, very Marshall, with a route that Mary would instinctually take. I want to hold and comfort Marshall, and still I feel sorry for Mary, feeling that things *have* to go a certain direction. And still, it hurts the one she loves the most.
Always thought Marshall would treat her like fine China, a certain reverence for her. Perfect.
They pretend well, even to themselves.

I always thought *he* was more the stealthy, dangerous panther than she, but wow, the stalking says a lot.
I've used that same comparison myself: Marshall is a man who looks to have a swimmer's or runner's body, and what a powerful one it is, too. How can Mary have never noticed this beautiful man, his excellent form? Alas, she is blind.
**She'll have this conversation when she's ready. I'm not saying another damn word.** Love his thoughts here; it's something he needs to take to heart more often, as somehow he always seems to be the one to break the silence, be the peace maker.
The entire portrayal of Marshall fighting himself - perfect. He does it so much, trying to make sure it's for the right reasons, that it is something that would be the right thing for her, regardless of his own desires. Such an honorable man; makes him so unique, so special.
Excellent story thus far. Looking forward to continuing it.

Dark. Delving. Highly intriguing.
**Before she leaves the man who she shares her life with to go back to the man who she shares her bed with.** THIS. This is the epitome, is it not? Perfectly stated.
I like this side of Marshall; when the pain and inner turmoil become too much, a dark and dangerous side begins to show.
Didn't know the Led Zepplin song, so I played it whilst reading - must say, a perfect fit.

Enjoyed your story very much! Great job!

Whew! *Fans self* That was worth waiting for. Love Mary figuring out Marshall needs to hear she wants HIM. Mary's not stupid, she's just emotionally blocked, I can see everything coming out in a rush when she finally gets a clue. Great chapter!

I like this! I wish Marshall had gone after her in the finale instead of her ending up with Faber! I was thrilled when I saw it was picked up for 2 years!

Loved it! Let me just say finally. I really love the ending to the chapter.

I'm pretty sure you mirrored just about every IPS fan on the planet's sentiments in that author's note. I'm SO glad there will be more seasons. Here's hoping they fix the horrible f*-up that was the last four or five shows of Season 3 in seasons 4 and 5!

love that Mary took actual care of Marshall, and then enjoyed him.
Loved that Mr. Padgett came back to check on them.
Love the most that you came back to the story!

On the way to making up...and what a way to do it! Feeling an urgent desire to soak in a hot tub now...

Fantastic! I forgot I had this story on alert and when I saw it had been updated I was super excited! Then I saw the lyrics...and...well, that was exciting as well! :) I loved the scene at the end, it made me laugh...especially Mr. Padget's comment about the open guest room! Haha. And yes, the season finale was definitely depressing...but in two seasons...Mary has to see who's been right in front of her...well, we can hope anyway...hopefully Faber was a one-night stand kind of thing. Anyway, this was a great chapter and I can't wait for more! :)

Yay! I was JUST checking in on this earlier today and wishing for more! I'm glad you're back! Great, as usual, and now we have TWO seasons to sort out the finale :-)
| BuJyo chapter 19 . 7/29/2010
O.m.g...that was incredibly hot. The tease in the tub...whoo.
I'm glad you back on the IPS train to give it a shot. I, too, was distressed with the direction the season took and the finale. I'm telling myself the vacation scene was a dream. It gets me through :)
So glad to see your M/M just letting themselves enjoy each other!
