Oh my, I just reread this one, soooooo good! The emotional teetertottering is just so pitch perfect!

GentleReader, I *so* hope you continue this story. You characterize Maddie and David perfectly. Reading this is like watching an episode of the show! Thank you for what you've written so far but I need much much more. Pretty please?! (*bats eyelashes enthusiastically*)

Hey we are still waiting here...patiently, quietly, etc. Just like good old David we know that if we wait long enough perhaps we will get another new chapter. What we read here is really good. Very realistic, why I happen to think there are a hundred ways this could go. I'm sure your next enstallment will be great.
And that is why, just like Addison, we are all going to wait.
Gee, I hope we don't have to wait too much longer.

I LOVE this take on that episode. This is how it should have been. It is full of humour, totally in character and I can just imagine the scene where M comes scooting out of her office backwards straight into David's hands. Haha. Very clever, brilliant writing. Please contunue xx

ladies this is really fantastic ... i have forgotten how much fun Moonlighting can be when David and maddie weren't on the same page - virtual page that is. Makes me want to pull my DVDs out again.
Keep it coming. GREAT JOB ... really GREAT GREAT

Girls! This is just wonderful! Perfectly written- that's what I call Moonlighting! I think we should call Glenn. I mean we have Cybill, we have Bruce, Alice and Curtis... we have Caron plus we have FINALLY great-great writers - everything is ready for a reunion movie! :-)
Enjoyed reading this chapter very much:
"Ah now fellas, not so blue! Don't you worry. I've been a pretty good negotiator lately when it comes to stuff that's crossed her desk." - hahaha David is adorable! I can hear him saying this!
I also loved how you changed the plot and made Maddie stay and watch Mr Sofer's body with David! I wish she did so on the show. Thank you for this romantic scene that they shared, it gives us so much hope! :-)
You girls are great-great!

Great Great...love the way David rolls the dead guy behind the potted plant..
"Maddie, I want—" What does he want..I mean I know what he wants but what was he going to say..chapter 5!
| Goldilocks85 chapter 3 . 1/25/2012
What a wonderful new chapter! I loved it from the 1st till the last word! Enjoyed reading the thoughts running in Maddie's head - you described them just perfect! So natural and true to life!
Magillicuddy... HOW could he interrupt the kisses grrrrrr :-)
So many great lines:
"He looked her over, carefully. "I care a lot about your bottom line," he drawled. - I could hear him saying this and her reacting to this :D
"We are NOT having phone sex in this office…and that's FINAL!" - it's so Maddie! Pure brilliance Jen!
I love this part very much: "No, but I don't have to contribute to it!" she spat, and marched to the door. The epic slam she intended, however, was arrested by David's hand holding the door open as he followed her. She turned around and glared at him." -a great play with the words Jen!
I am looking forward to what will happen - I know it's going to be AMAZING!
P.s. You mentioned once that Bees is helping you with the story - you are so great girls! Thank you *blowing a kiss* :)

| ManitobaDesigner chapter 2 . 1/10/2012
I'm doing the dance of joy! I love this one shot when you first wrote it, but always wondered what happened next...
| Bluemoon Stranger chapter 2 . 1/10/2012
Just reread the story. It was a dream right?
| Bluemoon Stranger chapter 1 . 1/10/2012
I love sll of your storiesand this one eas no diigetent until it came to the part where David sees pity in Maddies eyes when he tries to kiss her. Another "p" word that I absolutely hate along with pacts and pals. Hope this was a nightmare of Davids.
| Snappysara chapter 1 . 1/9/2012
