Fantastic story! Loved every moment of it;I had so much emotion through this especially around the chapters Where Skimble and Jenny's future seemed to walk on a thin wire. I adored the interactions with Dem and Munk,seeing as Dem ended up MIA It made me a bit sad, but a Writer must write what they think will advance there plot so I cant complain. All of your back stories on how the other Cats came to live in the junkyard were all very creative, especially with Grizabella, how you wrote her departure makes a lot of sense (To me anyway.).

well ... to be honest, this chapter kinda killed it for me. it felt so ... blasé and angsty and soap opera-y (as Macavity said). I was fine with Rem being super overprotective, but Annasta didn't even try to reason her mate down. and then, the confrontation between them and Jenny the next morning ... it felt like very bad acting.
the concept is genius, I love it, but the execution ... I think it could use some work. I ended up skimming after the bit with Macavity, and then I just skipped down to the end altogether. so right now, I can't continue reading because I don't know what's happening. story's still going in my favorites, however; can't just ignore the rest of the awesome for a momentary lapse.
does this sound harsh? I promise I'm not trying to be, just trying to be honest. it's 5 in the morning, if that makes any difference ... :(

I have to tell you, I LOVED this story. Skimbleshanks is my favorite character, no 'ifs, ands, or buts' about it! It was wonderfully written and I'm so glad they ended up together (though I usually write them as brother and sister so I can do whatever want with Skimble pairings). I'm so glad you put something that's long about him in the fanfiction archives and the way you made Jenny was really great! Did i forget to mention I loved it? Probably. Anyway, it was a good read, I was obsessed with it until I got done. Magnificent work.

In a word: fantastic! :)

*sniffle sniffle*...last chapter. I shall savor every moment, EVERY WORD! And then read it again and again and again...
Wait, haven't I gone over this already? Haha right...I'll spare you all the 'again's and actually begin to read...
Thanks for the mention :D Expect more reviews from me in the future...and more truncated emails :o
I STILL feel bad for Macavity...he's so misunderstood :(
You know what, those Jellicles were asking for it :( If only Macavity had ONE friend...then all of this would never have happened. Agh sorry I'm done ranting :)
You should write a story about Demeter's stay with Macavity! I could so see that :D I mean, everybody knows that Demeter was kitnapped by Macavity at one point...but I've never actually read a story that was completely centered around Demeter at Macavity's warehouse...
It's funny, I've never seen Cassandra and Exotica being friends with Tanto and Cori...but it makes a lot of sense! Now I'm wondering what a Cassandra/Coricopat pairing would be like...
Pouncival and Tumblebrutus! Twins! AWWW!
It's sad to think that the Jellicles just gave up on finding Demeter :(
AH this is getting creepy...must...read...ON!
WAIT! Let me guess...is it Mungojerrie?
Haha YES! Hehe I haven't guessed right in years...
Aw, Mungojerrie's nice :) I wonder what his story is to getting into the junkyard...
Yes, I am a Plato fan, and super proud of it ;)
AW POOR PLATO! Was this Macavity's doing? Oh, when I find that ginger tom, I'm gonna-
Wow I really need to calm down...
Oh my gosh...that poor cat...how did he die?
Haha real smooth, Jerrie. Cursing in front of adults isn't a very good first-impression.
Grrrr...pollicles...when I find them, I'm gonna take their little necks and-
Wow...I seriously need to...take a nap or something...
It must totally stink to be Macavity's henchcat! The only good out of it is having a roof to stay under! That reminds me...I think I'm gonna read Calico Criminal again...for the fourth time ;) Wait...it might be the fifth haha.
That. Was. ADORABLE. I can't say enough good things about this chapter and the entire story in general. Gah I'm jealous of your writing abilities! I CANNOT wait for your other stories! Publish one soon!

Second-to-last chapter? Awww...Well, at least Macavity's in it!
Good thing this story's in my favorites, so I can revisit it again and again and again...
Anyways, on to the chapter!
AH! I thought Jenny would get caught! I hope neither her nor Skimble will get into too much trouble.
Oh no...if that one lie hurt Skimble that much...then what about when he finds out about all the other lies she made? Oooh...this is getting dramatic...
That's a good way to tell the truth. Haha sorry that was kind of random.
SHOOT! SHOOT SHOOT SHOOT! WHYYY? WHY MUST YOU RUN, SKIMBLE?
If it isn't apparent already, I'm mad at Skimbleshanks :( haha.
SHOOT AGAIN! IT'S MACAVITY! All alone with Jenny. Gah this can not turn out well...ah the suspense is killing me i'm typing so fast now i'm not bothering to capitalize any letters because i want to read more!
Poor Macavity :( Now I'm also mad at the Jellicles :p
DON'T HURT SKIMBLE, even though I'm mad at him...but still!
And NOW I'm mad at Munkustrap...and kind of Demeter...because I still think Demeter should have stayed with Macavity :( I have really weird opinions...
I wonder how this plan will work out. I hope Macavity falls for it. Happy Mac equals Happy World :D haha.
Wait...I just realized something...does Munkustrap know about this plan?
Aw, poor Demeter. And Macavity. And everyone else. Depressed Macavity equals Depressed Junkyard :(
Wow...I just realized that I'm really wacko today. I need to calm down...
SHOOT! NO, I WILL NOT CALM DOWN! IS THE TRAIN STATION ON FIRE? NOOO!
SHOOOOOOT! That's so creepy! Macavity is the fire? IS the fire?
YAY! Aw, it's sweet that Skimbleshanks could catch her scent even when he was unconscious!
I think it's clear that this is one of my favorite chapters :) I can't wait for your next chapter! I'm wondering what Macavity's punishment will be, or if he will run from the junkyard for good. Update soon!

AWWWWWWW! that's so cute! can't wait for the finale! keep it up!
| thatHORRIBLEcat chapter 6 . 5/23/2012
Have a feeling this is all going to blow up in her face REALLY bad. But, what I love about this story is the way you write her character. Jenny has flaw and makes mistakes, it makes her all the more believable and gives room for character development.
Her parents' relationship is so cute too XD
Can't wait for the next one!
| Cocobutterrox chapter 6 . 5/17/2012
New prediction: Skimbleshanks is going to tell Jenny's parents that they went to a pub near the place Jenny works and then they'll be all like 'Huh?' and then THE TRUTH SHALL BE REVEALED! Haha sorry I got a little crazy there :p
COME ON REMGAIL Skimbleshanks is pretty responsible. He worries too much :p But then again, she IS his daughter, so it's understandable.
This is kind of an odd thing to add while I'm halfway through the story, but I seriously cannot stop reading and the suspense you are building up is wonderful :)
Aw, poor Annasta. I would love to learn more about her backstory.
In my opinion, Jenny should wait until her father (hopefully) lifts the ban before she sees Skimble again. I feel like if she sneaks out to see him there'll just be more trouble.
Oh, that's just great. Another lie. Yes, I'm sure that'll fix everything, Jenny. Just LIE again! This cannot be good...
Hm, very interesting last sentence, saying that she felt "happier and guiltier" at the same time. Hm...
Another wonderful chapter! I'm afraid Remgail will find out that Jenny is sneaking out, though. Update soon!
| thatHORRIBLEcat chapter 5 . 5/5/2012
Awww that kiss was so sweet. Love this couple and how you write them :)
I'm worried about what'll happen with Macavity though. Of course, Jenny did the right thing, but I'm afraid for Skimble now!
C'mon, Jenny tell Skimble the truth! Or else it'll blow up in your face soon...
Anyways, great chapter can't wait for the next one!
| Cocobutterrox chapter 5 . 5/5/2012
Aw, Demeter and Munkustrap are so cute together :)
I wonder if Jenny is annoyed whenever people ask her about her and Skimbleshanks or if she is happy to tell them everything...hm...So far it seems like she doesn't want to tell people much, but I wonder why...maybe she's still not that interested in having a tomfriend...
I feel so bad for Macavity...it's like he's in prison...
Okay, now I'M wondering what he means when he says "needing it". Very, very suspicious. Macavity has been suspicious a lot in this story haha. It's totally in-character, of course :)
AHHHHHHH! Jenny told the secret! No! Macavity is most definitely NOT going to like that...
So by "needing it" does he mean needing drugs?
Oh, yeah, I forgot about Mac's magic. Yeah, that is probably not going to help Jenny out...or Skimble...
Okay, I'm going to make a prediction...Jenny is going to get drunk and accidentally tell Skimble the truth about what she does for a living.
Good point, Jelly...haha.
"Instead of bathing everything in orange and gold, the sky and ground simply got darker." Oooh, is this a hint of foreshadowing I see? Nice touch.
NO MORE LIES, JENNY! TELL HIM THE TRUTH! Agh, sorry. I can see how at this point it would be really difficult to tell the truth. Poor Jenny!
Please don't get into a fight, Skimble!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ANUBIS!
Aw, no! Not a fight! Well...my prediction didn't actually happen, but this is just as bad! Poor Skimbleshanks!
Whoa, Anubis is magical! So all that disappearing and reappearing and hypnotizing was all magic! Whoa...mind-blowing...
Skimbleshanks is lucky his queenfriend is a nurse! I bet he feels real thankful now.
Aw, poor Jenny (again).
Awwww, what a sweet ending! And another wonderful chapter! I wonder what will happen next. Update soon, please :)
| Cocobutterrox chapter 4 . 4/12/2012
Oh no...I'm guessing Macavity found out about Munkustrap and Demeter, huh? Oh...Munkustrap's really going to get it now...and I hope nothing too bad happens to Demeter :(
Ooooh, Munku should NOT have said that.
AHHHHH NO! EC, I can't believe Macavity just electrocuted his own brother! He does NOT deserve Demeter.
Hmm...I wonder who Demeter will choose-Munkustrap or Macavity. I always think Demeter and Macavity are a cute pairing, but judging my the way Macavity has been acting, maybe it would be best for her not to go back to him...I'm sure at one point or another, he'll hurt her, too.
Interesting-Old Deuteronomy is putting Macavity on den arrest! It's like a police officer arresting his own son!
I think I said this sometime before...but when you write something like this-"Skimble carried you five blocks from the train station? If that's not chivalry, I don't know what is. I think it's finally happened, Jenny." Jelly said with an air of seriousness to her voice.-then the period after "Jenny" should be a comma followed by the closing quotations. Sorry, was that confusing? Anyway, it's just a small note about mechanics and punctuation and stuff, so it's no big deal.
Aw, that story with Jellylorum and Gus was so sweet :)
I bet at one point or another Jenny's lie will get too out of hand. She must really regret it :( Jenny really should tell him before he finds out himself, because then he would actually appreciate her honesty.
Very nice ending :) I'm so torn by Macavity. I don't know if Demeter should choose him or not. Munku wouldn't be half-bad either, though. But I'm sure Macavity is going to do something so horrible that it will totally mess-up their relationship.
Great chapter! Update soon!
