The entire series in 2,858 words and it all rings true. Quite an accomplishment. Thank you.

Wonderful portrait of the evolving relationship :) Well done :)

So, I was thinking of writing some Mentalist FanFics because somehow, it's gotten to me more than any other tv series ever, but now I feel at loss, because you have already written most of things I've wanted to say (albeit a bit differently, but still). And what's the point of repeating in a sense? Still (and because of that), I love your work, the way you write, things you put in your one shots. Thank you so much for sharing!

I love the way you wrote this. The writing style is so smoothe, and the alternation captures both points of view flawlessly. You're right. This does more or less sum up their entire relationship.

This is a clever way to paint the two characters, and their changing attitude towards each other. Love it!

Aww. Such a great look at 'them'. A lovely concept.

LOVED it. This could be a great one-act. Think about it.

I really liked this! Liked how you tracked the progression of their work relationship to their friendship, and how they slowly let the other in along the way. They need each other, there's no doubt about that.
Liked how you said that this was your ship manifesto. If people can't see how they need each other, rely on each other, after this, well, I don't know what they've been reading/watching.
I wouldn't have thought that someone could condense their relationship into one chapter, but you did it. And you did it well. Alternating viewpoints helped.
I think my favorite part was the silent conversation they had in her office. Shows how well they know each other, how close they've gotten. I liked that. :D
Sorry it took so long to review, there's been such a flood of fics recently what with the prompt challenge. But I'm glad I read this!

I adored it:)
| Jagarini chapter 1 . 12/15/2011
I loved it! Ir's rare that I find such a good or realistic story in any tv show fanfiction! Thank you!

I have to catch up on all of these wonderful stories you're writing. I love the way you ship these two characters. You really get inside their heads and it's so much fun to read. And little by little, the two continue to get closer, even as they hold the rest of the world at bay. Great job.

This was terrific. Excellent as a character study, ship-esque without being heavy handed. A lot of warmth written about and between the characters, even in reference to tough moments in their lives and interactions with each other. I'm making this a favorite; really an outstanding piece.

Yay! I like it! The slow way youre developing their feelings and how you describe them... so nice!
| TheLifeILive chapter 1 . 12/14/2011
That was so incredibly awesome! I loved it!
I think it describes the two of them perfectly.
