|Reviews for It's the Only Life You've Got Arc 2|
| kidmarathon chapter 12 . 5/12/2016
I have read a boatload of DWP and Miranda/Andy fanfiction and this story line is by far one of the top three I have read. Your writing is terrific, you give the characters depth and emotions that seem real and believable. Your prose is lovely as it flows. The level and angst of emotions are heart wrenching and uplifting at the same time. I really hope you do write the third Arc. So much is left unsaid and undone to bring the story to its satisfying conclusion. You have a legion of fans awaiting...

Thank you. I have read both arc's to the end and what a compelling and wonderful ride it has been. Yes, I have come late to the whole 'Mirandy' thing but hey so much fan fiction not enough hours in the day (same can be said with book reading). I'd love for more as this is truly an excellent read and your writing style ... marvellous. You had me crying in parts, seething with anger at others (Richard - the arsehole) and others that required very cold showers. I hope that whatever is holding you back from writing another arc is only temporary. In fact all your stories are great. Keep writing. Thank you again. Yours sincerely

I know this is an older story of yours but I just reread the 2 parts and you had mentioned possible a third Arc...Please post a third Arc...it is such a great story that I would to see where they are maybe 2 or 3 mths done the road ...Andy still recovering or still having nightmares...Mirandy dealing with that and her own stress' how did Andy's mom make out and you dear old dad isn't done yet. So if you have part 3 I would love to read it.
Thank you Tara tauras$

I've only just ford these (1&2) and the are both definitely some of my favourite mirandy :)
I was desperately checking for a part 3. I would have loved to have seen a continuation of this fic, but as it was completed so long ago I doubt there will be. I'm glad I have these to read back through though.
Thanks for sharing :)

Hope there is an Arc 3 and part of it is Louise and Madeline getting closer (one would think Louise would want some one to talk to about her daughter's lifestyle) as well and Andy having a little freak out about Madeline taking Louise to her club for dinner while she is staying at the townhouse for the next holiday season (enthusiastically taking a grandmotherly role in the twin's lives). After the 2 women (L&M) leave the townhouse,
A: Oh my god I am going to need therapy for years now and It's all your fault Miranda!
M: Andrea, I am not quite sure what you mean?
A: What I mean is that my recently Divorced, Suddenly Vivacious, Highly Inquisitive, Francophile of a mother, who has spoken to Madeline so often in the past 9 months her French is now fluent. Is going to "paint the town red" with probably the most Alluring Restaurateur\Club owner in 2 continents. Having a Decadent meal and tour of the most intimate restaurant in the city and to make matters worse Nigel ran my mother through the Closet today!
M: Your the one who said she needed a gown for the New Years Gala and you know Nigel always get's carried away, My dear I am not sure what you are getting at...
A: You were the one who taught me to consider all possible outcomes of a decision, and if my mother and I share even a fraction of our tastes the likely outcomes are just to disturbing to consider...
M: Oh, I see with your puritanical upbringing you never have to confront the notion of your parents sexuality. My love your mother will always be your mother but she is also a women with needs and if Madeline can give her even a fraction of the happiness we enjoy who are we to argue?
A: Your Right, Your Right of course, but I am definitely going to need some time before I can step foot in the lower level of the club again...
M: Well my dear in that regard I can at least assure you that while Madeline may be voyeur she is in no way an exhibitionist and if Louise is to be entertained it will done so in the privacy of Madeline's own home. Now we have a big day tomorrow so let me try to take your mind off things and then we will get some sleep. No reason to sit around and mope about your lost childhood your mother has a key though I doubt she will need it ...
M: Oh my that was quite distasteful of me, whatever shall you do? [she asks as she heads in to the closet and glides down the stairs to their secret refuge]

Wow! What a ride! I loved it all the way!

..A lovely Bearded Iris...
| Kris Morene chapter 12 . 6/7/2015
I know you finished this one a while ago, but please, please I want to find out what happens next! I love this story. Your characters are so true to themselves and the plot is wonderful. Please continue with Arc 3?
| kali07 chapter 12 . 3/5/2015
I just finished arc 1 & 2...I do hope you write the 3rd arc!
| Guest chapter 12 . 2/25/2015
I don't even know if you're still writing fanfics, but I am begging you to come back and write a third arc. I have lost count of how many times I have read the first two. They are just magnificent. I understand the time and dedication it takes to write a story, and I want you to know that it is very appreciated! Please continue, so many people want to know what happens next!
Thank you for sharing your talent.

As with the first story "arc1" I applaud the writer for character developement and insite. The flow and continuity, almost flawless. The story flowed into the theater of my mind with ease, I was almost able to hear, feel, experience it all. I look forward to the next instalment. I am and remain a fan.

It seems that it has been over a year that you have published this story. I would implore you to write a third arc however I know that life sometimes does not allow you to do all the things you would wish to do. I will thank you for sharing this wonderful story with us and will wait patiently in the hopes for it's continuation.

*angry screeching* This is it?
This is where it ends?
Are you mad!?
Are you insane!?
*falls at your feet*
PLEASE I BEG OF YOU, WRITE A THIRD ARC!
I JUST SPENT THE LAST FOURTEEN HOURS READING BOTH ARC ONE AND ARC TWO ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND THEN SOME, CAUSE THERE ARE CHAPTERS THAT I REREAD IMMEDIATELY!
FOR HEAVENS SAKE I AM DYING!
If there is any chance at all for there to be a third arc, I will forever and ever be in your debt.
By far, this series is at the top of my list, and considering that I have legitimately spent more than half of my winter break reading Mirandy fic day in and day out trying to find my muse to continue with my own writing *and at some point will probably be adding Mirandy to my list*... I have read many... many, many, Mirandy fics.
So please, I legitimately would lay myself at your every whim, if there was a chance at being able to have a third arc.
And the whole thing with Richard, hits so very close to home. It's horrific almost, and you did such a wonderful portrayal of a number of things I myself have heard from those around me about homosexuality.
It also gave me some fresh pieces on how to respond.
The characters seemed so alive, and I could feel a reality pulsing through the words.
Others may disagree with me, I'm certain, but I truly enjoyed not doing my homework *which seriously needs to get done* in order to indulge myself and immerse myself in your words.
Sad and beautiful and touching on real life problems faced by the LGBTQA community, I am completely enamored.
Thank you for this wonderful read.

Again I praise this story. I hadn't re-read it in a while and it is still a marvelous read. I really wish you would write the next installment.
