|Reviews for We Have Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself|

Girlie, I have missed your writing. This was definitely a sweet slice - I may not be overly familiar with the characters but I got a very good sense of them just from this here. I was thinking all the way through it how they bicker like a couple and then at the end, whoomp, there it is! I love Jane's vulnerability in this too.
Since when can we not cut and paste? How I am supposed to post my favorite lines, by typing them out? Ugh, there is no rest for the lazy...
Favorite Line: When Jane opens her eyes, she can do nothing but smile.
(and the mega terrible, etc line)

This is very sweet! However I do have one bit of constructive feedback to offer you: I found it very distracting when you kept referring to the two women as 'the detective' and 'the doctor'. Once or maybe twice in a story this length is okay, but it just doesn't look good to do it more than that. For example, let me rewrite one of your last paragraphs:
"Maura rises up to her knees, the blanket falling from her lap and onto the floor. Her hands tremble as they cup Jane's jaw and she brushes her thumbs gently below deep brown eyes. Jane's eyes widen a second before they fall shut, her long black lases rest against the skin where Maura just touched. Maura leans forward and softly presses her lips against Jane's, then tips her head so they rest with their foreheads touching."
You see what I mean? It doesn't look or sound silly to use their names multiple times, and I often find that reading my stories aloud gives me an idea of how I can improve them so that they flow more easily off the tongue, and sound like a story you might tell verbally. I guess what is important to remember is that readers of this fandom are familiar with the characters. They know that Maura Isles is a doctor and Jane Rizzoli is a detective, they don't need to be reminded of that fact. However, I found that your characterisation was spot on; the way Maura manipulated Jane into going, Jane's feelings about not being able to protect Maura, all brilliant. If you just work on that one little thing, I think you'll be a great writer!
(Please don't take offence at any of this, I did truly enjoy the story)

LOVE it. So sweet. But I feel bad Maura won't get to go to the haunted village. Very nice. Thanks!
