Prissy, this chapter really had me laughing. You write such funny lines. Jackie had to use all of her brain power to keep Red out of the house. I think Hyde would be proud. I like how determined she is to cook a Thanksgiving meal. It's like a right of passage for her. I have my doubts it'll turn out as delicious as Kitty's, but her efforts are to be lauded.
Comments (and LOLs) on specific lines below.
(In the end she went with the recipe card for preparing the corn on the cob. It was easy! All it really was was boiling water and Jackie Hyde could boil water) - I have my doubts. *lol*
(although there was that one time that she'd burnt a pot of boiling water) - See? *snort*
(and the turkey was still soaking in its own icky turkey sweat in the oven) - LOL
(Jackie considered just locking the door to force Red to use another door but chances were he'd use the basement door rather than the from door (did anyone ever use it?) and end up in the kitchen anyways.) - Jackie's a clever one, isn't she? Too bad the basement stairs lead into the kitchen.
(there was no other option, Jackie couldn't let Red back into his house period.) - LOLOL How is she going to accomplish that?
("Wait! Before you go, can we chat?") - Oh, man. I can feel Red's anger from here.
("Jackie, we never had any 'talks,'" Red agued, "You would talk and I would pretend to listen to you.") - LOL
("I know, I miss that) - LMAO I can sooo hear Jackie saying this.
("Kitty started thinking that this could be the last thanksgiving that we all spend together, you know cuz you guys are so old.") - Oh, Jackie - no. *lolol*
("What if she's right, Red? What if this is the last thanksgiving we have together. What if it's your last thanksgiving and next year all Kitty will remember is how you didn't get her the ingredients she needed? Or worse, what if next year, you spend the day regretting not getting what she needed because this thanksgiving turned out to be Kitty's…") - Wow, Jackie's laying it on thick, huh?
("Damn it," Red cursed, not letting Jackie finish—he knew what she was going to say and it's why he cut her off—"What dumbass put that idea in her head?"
Thinking quickly Jackie replied, "Eric.") - LOLOLOL Throwing Eric under the bus is the go-to strategy.
(For a moment Red's frown reappeared, "I just bought eggs."
"Oh…yeah but um…"Jackie struggled to come up with another believable lie, "Michael and Fez called dibs on half of the ones you bought. They're gonna see if they can make them hatch into real chicks.") - *dying* That's actually a reasonable explanation. *rofl*

Nice and fluffy read for staying at home on Black Friday. Nice scenes with Red and Jackie. Fav scenes below:
o "icky turkey sweat" ***very apt description!
o Nice scene: "Jackie, we never had any 'talks" Red argued, "You would talk and I would pretent to listen to you." ****Classic Red! :D
o Best scene: "I just bought eggs." "Oh...yeah but um..." Jackie struggled to come up with a believable clie, "Michael and Fed called dibs on half of the ones you bought. They're gonna see if they can make them hatch into real chick."****Totally believable!
Hope your Holiday meal was better than Jackie's!

This chapter was just so sweet and I hope she succeeds

There is absolutely no way this plan can go wrong. A to Fez and Kelso. Oh my god, the word count...I love when Fez got frustrated with Kelso. Because Fez isn't a genius, but Kelso is faaaar from one. Hilarious chapter, you had me laughing at these two lovely morons. It's great.
| MidniteRaine chapter 18 . 11/11/2014
LOL. This was a hilarious chapter, Prissy! Something like this would totally be in the show in a Thanksgiving episode! For the first update of the year, it definitely lived up to its potential! And I’m absolutely looking forward to more!
About the updates, I’d rather have long chapters, even if we have to wait a little longer. But whatever you want to do is fine with me!
And as always, can’t wait to read the next chapter! Keep up the excellent work!
-At hearing the request, Fez sat up straighter in his seat and cleared his throat before beginning to read off the notepad. "Ehem. Once upon a time." he paused and his smile flattened out, "That's it."
Astonishment burst onto Kelso's face when he heard this, "What? That can't be it! That's only like five words! It feels like we've been down here for five years!" (LOL! Oh, Kelso...)
-"I know something's wrong," Kelso replied while taking a seat on the arm of the chair Fez was resting in.
Fez did not like the words or the parental tone they had been spoken in; he swiftly turned his head to Kelso and shot him a murderous look, "You know nothing, you sonofabitch!"
Despite the way Fez lashed out at him, Kelso remained calm and determined to find out what was bothering his friend. "Come on, Fez," he said, poking his friend lightly, already seeing a hint of a smile trying to break free. "Tell me what happened." (Uh oh, Fez is in one of his ‘moods’ again, LOL.)
"I can never stay mad at that pretty face," Fez told him, wearing his smile.
With his own bashful smile, Kelso shrugged his shoulders, "Yeah, I know." (LOL. Oh, Fez. We all knew Fez couldn’t stay mad at Kelso for long. :D )
-"But Kelso," Fez continued, his grin now shrinking as he brought their conversation to a more serious topic. "This book writing …it is too hard. Maybe we should listen to the others and give up."
His partner's suggestion caused Kelso to leap onto his feet and frown down at the man still seated in the chair, "Fez, we can't give up. We don't give up!" He declared, his volume rising higher as he spoke. "Did we give up when we tried to dig that tunnel under ground to connect our two houses?"
Fez nodded, "Yes."
"And didn't we regret it?" asked Kelso, already knowing the answer.
"Yes," again Fez nodded; this time in a more solemn fashion. (LOL. Kelso would definitely say something like that to build Fez back up, reminding him about the tunnel, even though it wasn’t such a good idea. XD )
-Going at Kelso's command, Fez lifted his notepad up to read, "Ehem. Once upon a time…"
Kelso eager, ready to get started grin, collapsed into a expression of shock, "What?! That's still all we've got?" he asked and when Fez confirmed with a head nod, his confusion enhanced even more. "But…but…we had a fight. We made up. I gave a motivational speech and everything! That had to be enough time for some new words to come out!" (LOL!)
-"No!" came Kelso's response, "I didn't even know there was a Magic Word Fairy…But now that I do, get her and her magic word here!"
Fez's frustration was boiling up, "There is no magic fairy."
"But if there was…"
"There is no magic fairy!" Fez shouted so loud that that those outside must have heard him—though no one came to check it out. It may have been an odd statement to make but the person making it was pretty odd too. The shoe fits so leave it! (LOL! Oh, Fez…)
-"I got it! I got it!" Fez suddenly exclaimed as he popped out of his seat like a jack in the box, "Names count as words!"
Instantly, Kelso's mind got on the same track that Fez's mind was going on, "Hey, yeah! That's right! Back in high school when we had to do five hundred word essays I always knocked off two words with my name."
"I knocked off five," informed Fez.
An impressed look and head nod was given by Kelso, making Fez smile and blush bashfully. (LOL! Oh, these two…and I like that you referenced Fez’s real long name. XD )
-A worried expression creased onto Fez's face as he watched him, "I do not know if that is such a good idea, Kelso."
"Oh don't worry, it's still gonna be a girl stripper," Kelso reassured, thinking that that was what his co-author was worried about, "It's Sam like short for Samantha." (LOL. I love that Kelso hasn’t caught on to what Fez means here. XD )
-"Don't forget her wisecracking turkey sidekick." Fez pointed out with excitement.
Kelso nodded and continued to write, "and her wisecracking turkey sidekick named Pablo Juan…"he suddenly drifted off, struggling to remember the rest of the turkey's long name.
"Francisco Hernandez," Fez finished for him.
"Francisco Hernandez." Kelso repeated then wrote down the words. Staring down at the paper, Kelso realized they had many more words than before, he quickly started to count them. "We've got twenty words now! That's like double what we had before! This writing thing is easy!"
The exclamation made by Kelso made Fez grin happily as he watched his friend put the pen to paper once again, eager to get back to this writing thing. (LOL. Don’t worry Kelso, it’s not easy to remember the turkey sidekick’s name, I had forgotten about it too, and I love how enthusiastic they are about writing the story, hopefully they remember to change Sam’s name before showing the gang! Especially Jackie, oh boy, wait 'til she finds out about this! XD)

That's not going to work, Kelso!
This whole chapter is just like them.
