I LOVE THIS !
i just got majorly into the shining and your story totally rules, i'm so impressed with it!
i find jack extremely attractive in the shining and i think your writing captured the way he would react to a new comer in the overlook (: especially if she's a cute young lady , haha
i don't know if you're still going to add to this story, but i really hope you would consider it. i would definitely read the rest, and i'm curious to see how it all turns out:)
best wishes !

This is going to sound hella weird if you are even still checking reviews for this, but I watched the Shining for the first time yesterday night and I've genuinely fallen in love with this movie. Oh my god, I really AM in love with an axe murderer.
And I know that it's been five years (God, that sounds conceited) but would there be a minuscule chance of you continuing this story? My email is please please PLEASE let me know if you will or not :)

Neat start! :) I like it. Very awesome, as well as very well-written, too. :) Plus, I like the film version of The Shining (even though I also like the book by Stephen King, too), because it's so cool, and the character of Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) reminds me of me a little (since like him, I'm a writer myself). :)
Keep up your super-neat, very cool and phenomenally brilliant writing! :)

To tell you the honest and complete truth, I like the idea. I too am a fan of "The Shining". And I too fancy Jack Nicholson -I mean it's JACK NICHOLSON. I also like the idea of adding an OC into the mix; as her last name happens to be something as awesome as Jiroux.
The interesting blend of reality VS. fantasy is always a good plot device.
However, this is a critique.
My personal opinion is that (above other things), you should lengthen out Jack's attraction to dear Ms. Alyssa.
In your authors note, you say that you've started reading the book. Have you finished? Did you cry? -lol. Cause I did.
Anyways, I still stand by my sentiment. As Jack IS a married man, and he DOES have a child, the relationship between Alyssa and Jack may prove strained at times.
You should develop the first meeting a bit more. At what point in the story is this (hypothetically) occurring? If it's before Jacks imminent psychological break-down, you should flesh out his reactions more accurately. I've also written things for "The Shining". I always recommend to truly IMMERSE yourself in the story before attempting fanfiction.
Jack's character is complex, as is everyone in the novel/film.
My overall advice would be to change the first meeting...just a tad. In the book/film Jack gets pissed whenever Wendy (or anyone at that matter) interrupts him from the typewriter.
He's charming, rueful and clever...yes.
He's also irritable, stressed and distracted, though.
Try to infuse that in your story.
I do admit that Jack could and would be susceptible to the charms of an outside female.
Hell, in the book, he's gaga for the woman he dances with.
And have you ever seen the uncut version of "The Shining"? If you haven't...Room 237.
So, in conclusion, I will admit that I like the idea.
Just bulk up the story!

Wow! Neat so far. :) I like it. Very awesome and cool. Very well-written, too. :)
There was a winding staircase that Alyssa recognized.
"this is the room where Wendy finally realizes that Jack is crazy!" she thought. She jumped at the steady clacking sound of typewriter keys.
"Jack?" Wendy called as she and Alyssa entered the room.
Alyssa's heart practically stopped beating when she saw the one and only Jack Nicholson sitting at a large desk. "no wait, he's Jack Torrence now, right?" she thought. Jack looked up at the sound of Wendy's voice, and his eyes widened at the sight of Alyssa.
"well now, who's this?" Jack asked. Alyssa blushed. She'd always thought Jack Nicholson was really handsome in The Shining, and seeing him in person just made her crush worse.
"this is Alyssa Jiroux. She got lost when she got in a car accident"
Jack frowned. "oh, well are you going to be all right?"
Alyssa giggled. "my, you two sure are concerned about a total stranger! But yes, I think I'll be fine"
Jack smiled. "well it's very nice to meet you Ms. Jiroux. It's not every day that I meet a pretty girl around here" Alyssa blushed as Jack took her hand and kissed it.
"oh, well... th-thank you!" she stammered.
Jack just laughed. "well Alyssa, you're welcome to stay at the Overlook. It is a hotel after all"
Alyssa nodded. "thank you both so much!"
Wendy smiled. "well I'd better show you around then and introduce you to Danny" she turned to Jack. "We'll see you later, ok hon?" she said.
He nodded. "yeah, ok" he muttered, his eyes never leaving Alyssa. She turned to look at him before she and Wendy left. Jack just smiled and winked at her.
Alyssa blushed again, her heart hammering in her chest as she followed Wendy. "this is going to be interesting" she thought.
Very phenomenally brilliant. :)
Keep up your super-neat, very awesome and creatively phenomenal writing! :)
