I love this story
| Guest chapter 28 . 2/28/2014
Loved this story shame I started it when I woke up and then had to go to school :( oh well! Loved the story line I haven't comr across one witb Gordon being the main character but loved your portrayal of him.
Please please please say there is a sequel I am about to find out.

Aww, you're right - this is perfect for them without being the perfect scenario. Love how Gordon is almost more like a third child, with him dashing round the house to find the twins. Hehe!
And I'm sure "Go back to bed!" is one of Jeff’s all time favorite lines.
This is such a wonderful story, thanks for writing it. :)

Aww, it's over :( But yay, it was a perfect ending :)
While I realise you may want a break from this now you've completed it, part of me really, really wants a one shot about Mark's visit and potential bromance with Jeff! Maybe something to think about on an 'I miss Rachel and Mark' day? :)
Anyway, love the ending. Realistic marriage/parenting issues juggled with the fantasy life of IR, letting us know that life may not be perfect, but it is pretty darn awesome nonetheless. I can't help thinking that Tin-Tin would have been miffed to have missed out on a big wedding though! The understated one worked perfectly for Gordon and Rachel's characters :)
Lovely work, lady! Glad I've got you on alert.

Perfect ending to the story. Loved it. Well done.

aww I personally think that was the most perfect ending for Gordon and Rachel. It just worked and was real. Life is never simple or easy.
Brilliant chapter and I loved how it was Jeff that finally sorted everything out. he's so good.
You did great and I'm very glad you're writers block lifted. I know how that feels. Hope to see you writing more very soon.

"It's like you got everything you ever wanted but you never knew it would hurt this much, right?"
Oh, Jeff. The man who knows exactly how that feels. So wise and so sexy... yes, Mark is going to faint, I think, when he comes for a visit.
Love the ending here, LH. Living with the Tracys and IR isn't all peaches and cream, is it? You've shown this so clearly with Rachel's reaction to everything. Not just motherhood, which is an adjustment in itself, but being so far away from friends and everything she's ever known.
I've loved the story all along and I hope there's a sequel of some sort coming up. Great work, LH!

I forgive you for keeping us waiting so long

One of the most popular fics in this fandom and thoroughly deserving of the credit. Well done!
| Mazza91 chapter 28 . 1/24/2014
Awwww, the best writing certainly happens after a lot of thought about it. Hope everyone thought it was worth the wait! Looking forward to read more from you, well done! :)

Wow... that made me dizzy... But honestly El, I really didn't expect this! Lexie randomly just jumped in my face and went HTFS has been updated, and I just shrieked so loud! You are awesome, this was sooooooo worth the wait! Full of chaos and craziness and something I from now on am categorising as a 'Gorchel'. Uh-huh. :D I really, really, can't tell you how much I loved this, with poor Rach feeling inadequate, but Jeff being an absolute doll (not to mention the idea of Mark fainting dead away), and their wedding, ooooh, that's just... wowo... definitely unconventional! I LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOOOVE it! Like a billion-infinity times love!
Congratulations on such a fantastic story, I think this is one I am definitely going to be reading again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and... you got the picture yet? It was BRILLIANT!
And for the record, I do demand that Rachy and Mark get their own show; a oneshotty, thing, plleaaase!? Honestly, if Mark wasn't gay I'd kidnap him and take him home with me. :) But then, that wouldn't work because then he wouldn't be Marky and I'd be sad. :(
Heehee, you need to tell me about that radio thing you were on about btw, I'd totally forgotten, but it's been ages since I sent you my last email so I may very well have asked you then so that means I've forgotten, and if so I'm sorry! Whooo... run on sentence of epicness there! :D :D
Brilliant, stupendous, fanabulous job El, and I really, really, really look forward to seeing your next awesome thing!
Lots of luv, hugs and sunshine, El. Keep happy, keep dreaming (and keep sleeping hun. :P )...
Jay Cee. :) Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh I'm so going to miss this story, I really am! You captured the feelings of a new mother of twins very very well. I actually remember those moments of despair and pain well, and at least it does get better.
Perfect ending for Gorchel, and yes I remember that first night someone else had the twins and I just went to bed and zonked out all night,
I just loved Jeff and Rachel's chat and problem solving. I'm only sorry that I never got to see the chief manipulators Mark and Tin-Tin meet, ah well...
Anyway well worth the wait,honey and I'm going to miss it so much

Awww, love it and LOVE the fact that a rescue brought them together! Good job! :)

Aaaaaaaaaaw! I've just had a marathon catching up session with this story and it just gets better and better! I love...everything about it! I love that Gordon managed to spot Rachel in the submarine, I love snarky Virgil asking why Gordon was calling him and I absolutely adore Mark crushing over Jeff! I'm going to be so sad to see this one end but can't wait to see what you've got for us in the last chapter!
