Oh, it was so amazing to get an update for this story! And wow, you did such an admirable job handling the trauma and drama and intensity surrounding Maura's decision. I can't say I would make the same choice, but Maura's reasoning and, well, her feelings on this make sense. And I love that she finally was able to spit out the words and fess up to Jane about what she's been thinking and goings through. Jane continues to be beyond wonderful. This felt like a really turning point for them, and I can't wait to see where they go from here. It is always such a privilege to read your writing, even when it's tough material. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and your respectful handling of a really tough topic.

This is my first review because this story hits really close to home and I haven't even meant to be reading it yet, but I got hooked, even though I was preparing to be disappointed when you went with the abortion route but now I'm pleasantly surprised. I notice your getting some negativity though so I just want to share my $.02..
I was raised by a single mom and when I was 14 i found out (accidently.. long story) that I was rape conceived. If my mom had decided to abort i obviously would not know any different anyway, but as it happens, I was born, and i have a nice life and a great relationship with my mom & she has told me that if she could undo it all, she wouldn't because to her I'm worth what happened. It was an ugly thing to find out and it took me a little while to come to terms but I don't think of myself as "the rapists child" or "rape spawn" as so many people put it.. even though i can understand why it disgusts them it makes me sad and angry when that is always the automatic reatction because just with those few words and a curl of their lip they write off the entire life of a perfectly okay person like me. I am my own person, and i'm the proud child of the bamf who found it in her heart to love me and raise me even though she didn't askf or me.
I'd personally love to see Maura and Jane keep the pea, but I'm happy with their realization so far that the baby didn't do anything wrong and deserves life as much as any other, even if they adopt it out. It's more than I usually get out of stories like this. Thanks x

Very sorry to hear your interest in R&I waning. I know fandoms are usually cyclical in nature, some are constant undercurrents, some ebb & flow as the tide. I hope however that you DO NOT abandon this story, it is well crafted and deserves to come to its natural conclusion. And I hope you give season 5 a chance, new showrunner and writers could be the fresh blood the series needs to turn it around to something better than it has been.
As to this latest installment of your story, very nice! I like that Maura finally, finally got some emotions out and tells Jane what she has been keeping bottled up. What I enjoy about your fics, (and that we don't get enough of in the series) are real heart to hearts for Jane & Maura. Also glad they got some fluffy cuddles at the end too. Please continue this, we're rootin' for ya!

Aw man. I'm not exactly feeling the direction of this story now that Maura's planning to keep the child. I guess the hints were there when Jane was developing affection for the "pea," but I was hoping that that was just to create a higher risk factor for when the actual termination happened.
I don't mean to judge your choices here, but it is a little disappointing to have the baby, especially in these circumstances. It would have seemed more responsible to abort because we don't really get to hear those stories, not when written so well like this, and not in the Rizzles fandom either.
I just can't imagine how that child will feel whether they're put up for adoption or if Maura decides to keep him/her and later on they find out the controversy behind their birth.
The story is still nice and this won't make me stop reading, but those are my honest thoughts.
I do look forward to seeing more of where this is going.

Love the new chapter.
| oddsox823 chapter 22 . 3/8
I was worried this story was dead, but I am so glad I was wrong. I know you have been struggling to find your muse but I am so glad you are continuing this story. It is such a beautiful story of survival and how each individual handles this kind of trauma. You do a wonderful job writing both Maura as the victim struggling to deal with what has happened to her and Jane as a partner trying to help her lover survive the emotional and physical trauma. I know it hasn't been easy but I am so glad you're back. This was a wonderful chapter, I am glad they are gaining back the intamacy they had lost.

i bet you write rape stories cos you got raped and liked it.
| Charly.S chapter 22 . 3/8
Another great chapter. It feels like the love and support that your characters feel for each other are almost palpable through the dialogue and the detailed description of their behaviour. It's like all these feelings pour right out of your story... and my mind doesn't even know what to do with them, so my insides just feel all warm and fuzzy.
(Yes - that's how I feel when I read this story, despite the delicate subject matter. Because I think you're so sensitive and empathic about it, that I trust your characters to find their way through everything, no matter what I personally think about it or what I think that you might personally think.)
Thanks for sharing.

Glad you're keeping this going, even if you find yourself loosing interest in the show/books (?) I haven't been able to bring myself to watch it in a while, but I still have a great love for the Rizzles fandom and your writing.
Yellow is for friendship is truly a favourite of mine, you write beautifully. I do believe you would make a great original writer, if you aren't already. If you venture that way do be sure to share.
| Guest chapter 22 . 3/8
Anyone with a brain and discriminating taste would find his interest in Rizzoli and Isles waning as the writing on that show is so very poor, but that is most certainly NOT the case with your storytelling! Thank you for bringing this story to life and creating characters with depth. Unlike another reviewer, I find this story to be both realistic and idealistic. Please keep up the great storytelling.
| Tin Wordsman chapter 22 . 3/8
Great to see another chapter! As usual, you handled it with superb sensitivity and subtlety, especially Maura's quiet revelation of her decision, and her and Jane's tentative steps back toward intimacy. Your use of all the telling little details makes it so real.
I know how frustrating it is when a favorite show goes into a creative slump, but please don't let it hurt your wonderful alt-universe; think of it as keeping the flame burning!
Oh, and if you'll pardon me soapboxing for a minute, I would suggest to Guest(s) that they not bail just because this story doesn't seem to be taking the path they wanted it to; some of the best stories I've read have challenged my opinions, even when they didn't change them. This is a tale about two people and their choices, not everyone's.
Hang in there, Meg, and don't worry about the delays between updates; inspiration can be a faithless creature sometimes.
