| Blue Penguin Lightning chapter 18 . 2/17
I almost expected Jade to nail Freddie with question after question but I have to say that I like Jade pulled back like this. Having kids definitely helped to come her down. But, much like Jade, I'm rather terrified that Beck is angry and holding it in. I'm sure that probably gives Jade reminders of both John and Camilla.
There was, however, I really nice balance between the comedy and tension this chapter presented. I don't know how you do it, but you do. Bravo.

It's really nice to see Lily come into her own. She's really becoming the kid we all want her to be.
I'm not so sure I agree with Tori laying everything out on the table. Like, half of me is, half of me isn't. But I do like the fact that Tori is trying to move on, so bonus points for making that feel real and believable (it's one of the many things about your series that I love and adore).

It's scary to see Jade crumble. I know John's a horrible man and I still support my idea of random road rage, but he's hurting Jade. She's been through enough.
And I absolutely adored Jade's response of getting Freddie fired if it didn't work out between Tori and Freddie. That was brilliant.

Okay, the second half of this is really REALLY frightening. I kid you not, I'm shaking as I read it. Can Jade or Beck or Trina or really anybody just have some moments of road rage and maybe inadvertently kill John? I wouldn't be opposed.
| Blue Penguin Lightning chapter 14 . 2/14
Okay, I have some catching up today. And I've been a terrible person by not reviewing when this came on. That's not like me.
So, Beck is most definitely getting outnumbered, but we all know he loves his girls more than anything.
It's a bit unfortunate to see Lily disgressing a little. It's understandable, just really sad. Looking forward to seeing what school does for her.

run the GAMBIT - not gamut?
"the calm in her voice surprised them both" I laughed (as well as at most of the early dialogue). It's interesting that she and the other characters see the change in her over time, particularly about her temper. Will we see any more therapy sessions with anyone?
Good job getting rid of Robbie, he was a jackass in this story anyway... non-repentance aside, he's shown to put his own needs before Cat's time after time (nice contrast with Jade's selflessness, "Cat took priority - Cat always did.") when Cat (tries to be) very understanding and emotionally mature about things she can wrap her mind around. Better that your write him out decisively rather than let him peter out. Plus I had to gush a little over how cohesive your universe is when I read he had a black eye, since I implicitly understood that Beck gave it to him before reading further.
The chapter ends in a weird note though, because I assume Robbie isn't coming back at all - yet it's as if he could be a major subject later on. Perhaps I'm reading too deeply, or will Cat's feelings on the matter be explored further? I think it's strange mostly because it's not the same kind of bittersweet/humor/ominous foreshadowing I'm used to it being
Going over it again, I notice Tori kissing Freddie quickly when he arrives - I appreciate the way you waited 'til later to get into how she's exceeded her own expectations by allowing that intimacy: it kept the focus on the dinner, then went to discuss her growth (I think I may just greatly admire your organization).
I'm very curious about Jade and Tori taking note of Violet's listening to their conversation; it makes me wonder if one of the precocious children will overheard something she shouldn't.
Anyway, I could go on forever about my suppositions of what may happen next, but suffice to say I greatly enjoyed this chapter and will be awaiting the next installment. Take care!

Robbie is a DOUCHE BAG! Thank goodness he's leaving! I don't like sad cat though../: I loved the whole Freddie thing I really like that coupling because he's just so sweet and a calming presence in that crazy house I think.. I can't wait for the next chapter! You are literally my favourite fanfiction author ever! I jump up and scream everytime I see that you've updated… Yeah I love you I can't wait for the next few updates i'm going to be sad when it's over though because I just love you! I will probably read all of this series again because you're just that fabulous yaaaayy! Teddie and Bade forever!

It had to be done. Robbie was never my favorite character to begin with but with me saying that, his behavior in this story was inexcusable. It didn't surprise me that Beck reached a breaking point (which does not happen often). He must have also been thinking as a father rather than as a friend. He's got three daughters and Robbie's activities walk a dangerous line towards sexual predator. His ignorance might not seem so innocent in the eyes of a judge so Beck had to do this for his own good.
Tori should feel lucky that she can move on but Cat will always need constant care and supervision.
It's fine. I can completely relate to the whole thing about life coming at you. Your story is so good its worth waiting for. Glad to see a resolve on the horizon. Are you hanging up this continuity and starting a new story? Or is there more to tell from this world you created?
Either way, I can't wait to read it.

Super Chapter & More Please

I was so happy to see a new chapter and I look forward to the conclusion of this amazing story because you are a great writer and have written such a compelling story seemlessly around our favorite characters and you end each chapter in a way that makes me want more. About the whole Robbie thing I feel bad for him because he loves Cat and he's wanting something unrealistic, to be with her. But the bottom line is she cannot make her own decisions now or ever so he needs to face reality so I'm glad he is going across the country and away from Cat. Hopefully with distance and time he can realize the drastic and disgusting mistakes he has made. My favorite scene was Beck, Tori, and Freddie at the front door with Beck taking away the flowers, he knows his girl well! I also love that Freddie felt like he was meeting Tori's parents because the is actually what it is like considering her history with Beck and Jade. As for the ending it seems realistic that Jade would have anxiety over knowing that Beck lost his temper due to her family background. And since she has avoided him for a few days maybe this is something they can talk about together. Anyways with them constantly being there for their friends I think Beck and Jade could use some quality alone time soon! Lastly, I love that the low key and quiet Beck punched Robbie, got him out of town, and that Robbie used male makeup to cover up his bruise!

Thank you so much for the update :) It was so good to have another chapter and I loved it even though it was kind of a sad end to the gangs friendship with Robbie. He just didn’t learn and it’s awful that Cat felt so pressured into sleeping with him, it was nice to see Jade taking care of her like she used to. I also think it’s understandable that Jade is cautious around Beck after she’s seen him so violent especially because of her past with her mother and John. It probably brings up bad memories. Anyway I hope these next few chapters before the ending don’t prove too hard. You really are an amazing writer and i’ll be so so sad for this story to end. xx

Robbie added to the drama while at the same time leaving the story. It was a good addition to help us see that life goes on. Jade's doing well, but the stress caused by Beck's violence will be something they will have to deal with. Tori's slowly morphing into a normal (As possible) life, while the expanded family is set to accept another member, if he doesn't hurt Tori. Trina needs a love interest, maybe Gibby? I guess I'm not too worried about that. The story will end when it ends. I'm still concerned about Jade. Her health has improved, and it's a good thing she was able to accept someone else taking care of things, but she still is the matriarch of this family, and she takes on too much to keep everything going forward.
Welcome back. Life can be unforgiving sometimes. Glad you made it through.

I could say many things about Robbie's lack of common sense but I'm nt going to since he is not what's important to the fic, right now what's important is Tori and her relationship with Freddie thins seem to be doing well and I look foward to when Tori meets either Sam or Carly in the future.
