That was awesome, you are awesome I always enjoy your stories! That end bit when the evidence was right in front of them was an epic faceplam moment but it had me laughing. I loved poor Virgils pre-performance panic (I'm so aliterative hehe XD), and Gordon rescuing him from Rob Hall and so many other things I can't remember right now.
Your characters are always engaging, consistent and realistic, I really enjoy reading your take on the Tracy boys. Lots of fanfics ive read seem to portray Gordon as the impulsive joker, John as being smart and slightly aloof, Scott as being overly bossy and Virgil obviously as the calm one. But you really kept them interesting and balanced. Your previous stories have explained how/ why Virgils personality is the way ut is, which adds a lot of depth to his character. This story also showed a different, non IR side to Scott. Gordon actually seemed quite level headed and not just acting on impulse and I loved reading about the atrocious driving of the all knowing and wise John! The pnly one I'm not so into right now is Alan... though I did feel a bit bad for him when he messed up
*sigh* this review is hella long but GREAT STORY!

oh my god I love it! Such a good story. So nice to see a different side to the IR boys :-)

So glad I decided to read this after you mentioned it in Most Wanted, it's brilliant! I especially loved Gordon. I reckon you'd write a great Scott/Penny story if you wanted to

Thumbs up. I enjoyed.

Truly, truly marvellous. It's been a while since I enjoyed a story as much as this. You managed to hold my attention all the way through (thank goodness for the Internet on mobile phones, although my eyes might not recover!) and you have manage to perform that most difficult of tasks, you made it look easy to write such quality - and I know it is not.
There are so many joyous character moments here that it is hard to pick out favourites. John's smugness over his conquests, virgil's nerves (nicely contrasted with his coolness in danger), the duchess (the best kind of oc - loved everythin that he did and said) Gordon to the rescue, jeff's reluctance to know all about the 'flings', but his understanding that it is because of the life they lead.
Oh, I could go on! But mostly I wanted to say thank you for all your work and effort. I have loved every minute of it. Well done.

Brilliant start. I am enjoying this very much indeed. Lots of mystery and great character moments. This is very nicely written and flows beautifully. Thank you for your sterling work. Now to the next chapters.

Damn it! How can you leave us wondering about Scott and Penny! Stupid Alan for deleting the video!
Anyway, great story! I love the idea and all of the boys were brilliantly in character, I especially liked Gordon's rich playboy act treating Virgil like a servant, and then all of the Gordon and Cyrus bits! Hehehe :D

Whew! Sometimes it's good to have brothers, no matter how pestiferous they are in regular life... Well done, Gordon! And Rob Hall certainly deserves whatever he gets, plus a second helping.
| Math Girl chapter 17 . 11/14/2010
Noooo! You can't leave it there! John is smug and Virgil disatisfied, and we still don't know how Scott got a broken nose! Back to the keyboard, young lady! Write, I say!

What a great final chapter. All loose ends tidied up nicely. I'm glad Virgil is okay.
I enjoyed the part where they were listening to the tapes and all Virgil was worried about was his missed cue! And then Scott and Virgil having the music case all along, priceless.
I really enjoyed the goodbye scene, it was typical family banter.
Alan is so funny, deleting the tape and then regretting it, but I suppose he does owe Scott so he did the right thing. Would love to have seen Virgil in sequins - again!
I thoroughly enjoyed this story Bee, it was excellently written, very entertaining, extremely funny in parts and you should be proud. I'll wait in excited anticipation for the next one.

What a lovely ending to a brilliant story, I have eagerly looked forward to each chapter and enjoyed them all. Your regular updates were much appreciated (even if it meant the story ended sooner).
I particularly liked how you wrote Penny, she had character and depth, no exaggerated speech pattern and not a 'string' in sight. Very well done.
Loved the way each Tracy got a moment in the limelight and even Jeff got to be off island for a few days.
Sneaky, sneaky Gordon, 10 out of 10 for trying, just a shame Alan was in his very brief new and improved mode.
With everyone thinking about Scott/Penny and Virgil/Amy and Gordon/any woman with a pulse, John slipped under the radar. Where was he and who with?
'Scott sat back, the smile on his face growing wider as he thought about that night at Bailey's.’ That makes me smile every time, well Virgil’s not the only one with a very, vivid imagination.
Thank you for a wonderful wonderful read, looking forward to more from you.

Another winner! Everyone seemed more relaxed at last. the whole figuring out where the Blackmail tapes were was great. Anybody see that and they NEVER would guess their real Jobs! Funny stuff!
Loved Gordon making himself at home in Amy's room just to bait Virgil. And Virgils unique take on what was important on the Lounge recording was spot on! Silly of Gordon not to watch the duplicate he made. And Virgil was the only person Scott would have confided in about that night with Penny. Then comes the call and the moment is gone. All I can say is OOHH SO CLOSE!
There are some stories that are great reads and some that in addition to entertaining reading would lend themselves well to other mediums. This felt like one of those. Thank you for another Wonderful tale.

Awsome chapter! I love how you wrapped it up!
| bubzchoc chapter 17 . 10/31/2010
excellent ending loved the story will read again cant wait for the next one
| Loopstagirl chapter 17 . 10/31/2010
Oh you cannot leave it there with Scott and Penny, that was just cruel!
Oh wow, what a fantastic chapter to a brilliant story! Absolutely adored this one! Gordon's refusal to leave Virgil and Amy, Alan's new turn about, only to regret it, John's air of smugness. Loved Jeff as well, everyone was just perfect!
Really cannot express how much i enjoyed this! Thank you so much for the mention at the beginning, that really made me smile. You know I am always here! :D A perfect end to a perfect story! Can't wait to see what you come up with next!
