Poor, poor Penny. It's not her fault that guys have toyed with her, breaking her heart. Leonard must realize that and help Penny overcome her reluctance!

Though it's some months after the story's been written, I AM enjoying it!

Gotta say this chapter was FUNNY. I was smiling throughout!

I definitely do like Penny with Leonard! It's good for both of them.

Good on Penny! And hope she rewards Leonard while at the movies.

Looking forward to seeing Penny dump Kurt yet again, in favor of Leonard!

Loved the way you ended this story. By not making them get back together but opening up the possiblilty of it happening in the future, you've created a lot more emotional intensity for the reader to enjoy.
Penny being reckless sounds like something you'd expect from her in such a state and you chose a good plot line to show that. The way she almost ended up in a terrible situation but was saved by Leonard (whether it was intentional or not) was a great way to show her that he means so much more to her than she even realised.
The final conversations between them before the end were well thought out and very L/P like - very much in character. Thanks for posting this story :D

Good job on portraying the emotions that Penny's going through, you really get to feel how much anguish she's putting up with.
Sheldon is such a good friend when he takes the time listen. I love reading your Sheldon/Penny friendship moments :)
Hope things work out well in the next chapter...

Poor Leonard, I felt that the writers were very mean in the way they put out this particular episode so soon after they got over the 'weirdness' of the breakup. Penny's not having a much better time either, which makes you wonder why she does these things to herself :(

There goes Zack then... he's no better than Kurt *sigh* His behaviour was terrible but you can't help but laugh at just how stupid he (and his friends) sounded. 'Set the laser to stun' golden comedy XD
This scene certainly does fill a void in the TV show, things are much more clear now. Thanks :)

I like all the references to Penny's growing scientific vocabulary - that must have bamboozled Kurt like nothing else could! I always find it amusing on the show when Penny starts using Star Wars quotes to help explain things :D
Kurt was an idiot, as we all knew he would be. The best thing to come from this situation is that, a) Penny now knows Kurt's true intentions, b) she's realised why Sheldon and Leonard are such great friends & c) she handled the situation well, once she got past the shock.
Hopefully she's realising why Leonard is such a great guy too - it certaining seems that way, even if she has Zack as a distraction for now...
Oh and my favourite quote was "This cat is dead. In fact, I doubt it was ever actually alive." Brilliant :D

I like the back story to how Penny met Zack - clears things up a bit for me, since he appeared from nowhere on the show. Penny's been hanging around the guys so long that its become normal for her to talk science 'slang' rather than normal talk.
Zack was funny :D

Poor Penny, I understand why she'd feel that way. Even though (like Bernadette explained) Penny was the one to break off the relationship, it would still feel like a betrayal of the highest kind.
Good to see Penny getting some of her worries off her chest - there's no better way to start recovering than to have a chat with a friend.

I just want to strangle Kurt right now (okay, perhaps thats a bit extreme but, hey, he deserves it!). Penny thinking of things that remind her of Leonard was always going to be happen, its a natural reaction after that type of break up. Good job with the kite reference - I loved that episode :)
I'm interested to see her reaction to Leonard and Elizabeth (I think thats her name) Plimpton's 'encounter'... Something tells me it won't go down too well...

I like the friendship between Bernadette and Penny - its good to know that Penny has somebody to help her through such a tough time. You wrote Penny's emotions very well - I took it much better than I thought I would... I guess knowing what happens helps.
On another note, you were almost right about what happened between Howard and Bernadette - having World of Warcraft sex could be classed as porn, though if not, its still damn creepy *lol*
