Haha, that was freaking amazing! I loved how you merged the parts of Jesse's personality, his cold, manipulative side and his warm, loving side. I also liked how you switched perspectives like that, letting us see how someone else would view the situation. Again, very awesome.

I read this a long time ago - and have re-read it several times since, but somehow never got around to reviewing it. Should I start out by saying how much I loved it? Well, I did. I would have given anything for Rachel's bout with laryngitis to play out this way.
Trust Rachel to invade Jesse's thoughts even when he's lounging poolside thousands of miles from her. Of course, given their recent fight, the separation would weigh on his mind, but she's affecting him far beyond anything he ever imagined. I could definitely picture him having regrets about the way he'd left, and debating how to deal with them.
Jesse's teammates have been with him a long time, so it's not surprising that Andrea was able to see right through him.
"If Rachel were here, he thought idly, she'd be in the water by now." - Such a small detail, but it provides wonderful insight into the ways in which Rachel is different from the people Jesse's been surrounded with for years. She's changing him, and he doesn't know quite how to react.
It must have been so frustrating for Rachel not to be able to speak when Jesse called her, and equally frustrating for him to be given the run-around by Finn. (As an aside - just like Jesse, I don't understand what Rachel sees in Finn, either!) I loved the possessiveness he felt while talking to Finn, and I completely understand Jesse's fear that Rachel might ultimately choose his rival.
"a juxtaposition of brash confidence and bruising anxiety" - What a brilliant yet succinct description of Rachel. It captures the two seemingly contradictory aspects of her personality.
Finally, Jacob's blog ends up being useful for something. ;) How sweet and caring of Jesse to research laryngitis so that he'd know exactly what Rachel was dealing with, and how to help her handle it. He *is* the only one who would truly understand the ultimate ramifications of her not getting her voice back.
"Rachel's brown eyes shone with a tender light he'd never seen before, and it warmed the hesitant spot inside him that was falling deeper in love with her each day." - In this moment, I think she, maybe for the first time, begins to trust in the depth of his feelings for her. His abandoning his vacation to fly back and ensure she was alright is the kind of gesture I suspect no boy would ever have performed for her before. And the faith and trust he would have seen in her eyes would have affected him in ways he never thought possible.
I grinned in approval at Jesse 'letting it slip' that he'd called Finn, and that Rachel's ex hadn't been at all helpful, even though he was aware of exactly what she was suffering from. Any time Jesse can score points at Finn's expense, I do a little happy dance. :)
Aw, Rachel wore her dad's sweater to school so that she'd have that measure of comfort while feeling sick. How sweet! As was Jesse's inner vow that he wouldn't leave Rachel until she was okay, one way or the other.
Ah, the delight of the sexual tension when Jesse saw Rachel in her sleepwear. She's so completely innocent about her body, and because of the way she's been bullied and insulted, she doesn't see herself the way Jesse does - as someone who's absolutely gorgeous, both inside and out.
Loved Jesse sharing the story of his broken leg. Not only was it a way for him to reassure Rachel that it's possible to come back as good as new from an injury, but I enjoyed the insight it provided into his childhood.
Jesse's reaction to being in bed with a barely clad Rachel was predictable - her reaction when she discovered his 'problem' was anything but. I had to smile at her calm acceptance of the situation, and at her eagerness to do something about it. Rachel Berry is no prude, as long as she's with the right boy. And, given my love of all things clandestine, the idea that Jesse knew something about Rachel that no one else did, and that they've been doing all sorts of things that would stun her teammates if they knew, fed that particular obsession quite nicely.
Your sex scenes are always hot, and this one was no exception. I always envision them being perfectly in sync, whether it be singing, dancing, or making love. Their bodies are meant for each other.
Jesse fantasizing about he and Rachel having a future together made my heart melt, as did his telling her he loved her with more meaning than ever before. He's completely under her spell, and although he knows he has to leave her soon, I'll cling stubbornly to the possibility of their happily ever after - even if it takes them some time to get there.
And, finally, this - "If Rachel was no longer able to sing, he wouldn't leave her. Her voice was marvelous, but that wasn't why he loved her." Wow! Just beautiful. (Kind of like the entire chapter.)

I loved this chapter! I can totally see how this would happen. Kurt was hilarious lol. If you do another future one would you consider doing a wedding one?
| MezMaroon8 chapter 4 . 7/31/2011
I love this so much, love the drama, the tension, the dialogue and you have the chracters down so well too. Great story
| AlexisLovesGlee chapter 4 . 7/25/2011
Have I ever told you how much I love your oneshots? :) Especially this one. I love seeing happy Jesse and Rachel in the future, and I loved the Klaine moments.
My only issue is the baby's name. I loved that they named her after Grace Kelly and Judy Garland, but Judy is Quinn's mom's name. I love the nickname "Gracie," though!

Oh my god, this was about the cutest thing I've ever read. The image of Jesse holding his newborn daughter was so precious. And the involvement of Kurt and Blaine was perfect. I loved how freaked out Kurt was and how Blaine was so curious :D
Amazing! Thanks for writing!

Oh i love this! You do fluff just as well as you do angst. I am in awe of your ability to udpate twice in a week with two different stories. My last update was a month ago! If you update Kindheit in the next few days i may explode from excitement!
Definately my favourite author xxxxx

There are many stories out there with babies, births, stuff like that, but this one-shot is by far the best I ever read. I think it's because it's realistic and detailed, there isn't just the hand holding and afterward bliss... You actually use this happening (I mean the hours of labour) to create a plot around it, which is something I had yet to read. Love how Jesse's parents are mentioned; the touch of humor is great and Blaine and Kurt's side blended amazingly well. It became one of my favorite one shots ever, this must be the fourth time I read it )
| northstar61 chapter 4 . 7/21/2011
I'm not generally the biggest fan of baby fics, but as with everything you write, this was beautifully done. Trust Rachel not to want to disturb Jesse during his performance, and trust Blaine and Kurt to realize how much she really wanted and needed him with her.
Loved Kurt's reactions to everything. I can totally picture him being that squeamish about the birthing process, while Blaine would be fascinated. The friendship between the foursome was lovely to read. And Kurt's teasing about Gracie becoming an accountant was priceless.
I enjoyed the background details you included in this, such as Jesse's parents not liking Rachel, her dad being as uncomfortable as Kurt with watching an actual birth, the still tenuous relationship with Shelby, and even the revisiting of Jesse's long-ago choices. I could certainly imagine that being something Rachel would throw in his face when they fight!
~~the sight of Jesse holding his newborn daughter took his breath away~~
I'm pretty sure it would take mine away, too. I'm having visions of a shirtless Jesse with a tiny baby sleeping on his chest...
With your Kurt/Rachel fic, it could end up like a re-visitation, but it could also veer off into another direction if you decided to draw parallels to Shelby's surrogacy for Rachel's dads, and if you explored some of that. Of course, that might make it an entirely different story than what you originally intended.

What a lovely treat, a new chapter so soon after the last. Loved it, of course. Especially the bit about their child becoming an accountant. Well done.
