:'( awww! Poor messed up Leo :(
Of course he still loves her! They're supposed to be together :(
This made me cry. Again :( haha. Feel so sorry for Janet! And Leo at the end :p
Love how it ties into the episode. And LOVED the fairytale bit at the beginning :D
Sorry it took me ages to catch up :/ but really did love it :)

Leo has been such an idiot! He does love Janet, she deserves so much better. I am giving Leo a virtual slap for hurting Janet.
Brilliant, amazing, fabulous writing. Please update when you can. Big virtual hug to you & hope exams went well.

oh Leo :''( You idiot! Of course you still love her! You never ever stopped!
Talk about making me upset! I don't have the words any more to describe how this all makes me feel and you just had to go and add the line about Leo's sofa in there and I burst out laughing! Definitely made me really laugh out loud in such a serious part, my sister thought I was crazy, almost in tears to actual laughing! :P
Anyways, it's brilliant as ever and I can't wait for the next chapter :) xxxx

Love the contrast between real life and the fictional happy endings :)
Especially like the very noble bit about not blaming Janet. Then again, if Leo did blame her, then you'd have a serious case of hypocrisy considering the whole Lizzie debacle :)
Hope everything is going your way now...Update when you can!
And congrats on freedom from exams! Best feeling ever :)

Thrilled to see your update.
You really know the characters, so well written. Leo does love Janet, love the way you have written his thoughts and feelings, he's so confused. He just loses himself in work and that's probably what he will continue to do. In your fanfic, I hope he goes back to Janet.
Looking forward to next update. Izzy xxxxx

You won't believe how happy I was to see your update :) I missed seeing your name on the story page! :p
Loved this as always :)
Silly Leo :( can't he see that he DID love Janet. DOES love her! :'( if he's missing her at the end, it serves him right!
Your writing was amazing (obviously :p) and Leo was written perfectly. Could see all the different thoughts and directions his mind was going in.
Can't wait for your next update, after exams of course. Good luck with them all! :)

Of course we're still speaking to you, I was excited to see your name to pop up. Hang on in there for the rest of the exams. Like Leo's 'process' in this and the subtle but looming presence of H&N and his not wanting to tell. The last bit was clever too, imagining how it was and comparing it to the reality. Hope your writing for the exams has been as good. ;)

Poor Leo...then again, he's not entirely blameless...it's all his fault, really.
Love how Janet still talks to Nikki...but could get awkward very quickly between Leo and Nikki :)
Update soon...and good luck with the exams - you'll do great!
Love Em x

Oh god, you have made me cry again! :'( I want to give him a hug, he's so confused :( Theresa and Cassie are still having such and effect on him :/ but he is missing Janet though, can I just give them both a great big hug, and force them together :P
I can't wait for the next part! :) excited :) xxxx
| Laura Ann Yates chapter 3 . 5/25/2012
Well as usual, this was brilliant! And like the last chapter there were tears in my eyes. That scene still makes me cry!
If it EVER happens between H and N, I will do A LOT more than crying!

Finally got to read this! Sorry, been working all week :(
Did try to read it on my lunch break, but felt my eyes watering so thought I should probably stop until I got home :p
It was so sad :'( poor Janet. The last line! *sniff*
Loved 'He's wrapped his way around your heart like a cobra, clings to you firmer than ever, the sudden withdrawal of his love suffocating you, stealing your oxygen, leaving you helpless and afraid.' - amazing writing, but actually heart breaking :(
Silly stupid Leo for breaking up with Janet, after everything she's done for you!
Can't wait until you write more when you have time :) good luck with revision/exams :D
| dinabar chapter 2 . 5/3/2012
Beautifully written as always, I like the insights into Janet's workaholic past, her not wanting to take the day off and the potential unsuitables, just can't get emotionally involved in Leo though...don't know why and certainly not your writing which was as poignant as ever.
You'll know my answer to the ATIFIL dilemma... Exams and work first! LOL. Don't pressure yourself into writing. If I were you I'd give it a couple of weeks and see what turns up or doesn't on the BBC. You can always reunite H&N with Josie if you feel like treating us to some luvvin :)
Good luck with the exams.
| Emmy chapter 2 . 5/2/2012
Love love love this! It's great to read something about Leo and Janet aswell! I haven't seen ATIFIL but would love you to upload your fic, as long as there aren't any obvious spoilers! If your fic is different to the programme then it won't matter that some haven't seen it!
Again, this was brill!
| Baibe chapter 2 . 5/2/2012
Aww poor Janet, I'm gonna go sort Leo out I think he needs a good slap then he'll be back to normal. I love your writing, I've never been a massive Janet fan. Mostly because she's not around much but now I'm totally on her side.
As for ATIFIL I can't really comment as I have seen it but this morning I noticed the radiotimes has TBC for the sw time slot next week so maybe there is still a chance? Provided in your version they get together then Imtotally want to read it anyway.
| Izzy chapter 1 . 5/1/2012
It really upset me too, poor Janet. I hope they keep her character in the show and maybe Leo will love her gain. Their paths may have to cross again due to the nature of their jobs. Will make for some interesting story lines.
You have really touched on some very good points. It wasn't Janet's fault at all and Leo will never get over losing his family, until he learns to live with their loss, I don't think any relationship will work. Janet tried so hard to make him happy.
Love the mention of the little overnight bag, you can see Leo leaving as he first arrived! Also taking one of Janet's scarves, very sweet. Leo does seem lost and wonder if he will ever find happiness again.
Look forward to next more updates & fanfics, you have really got me thinking now! Brilliant as always.
