Because a jackal tore apart my story and only left the chewy filling.
Also because it’s a response to the one hundred word challenge.

It may not really relate to the prompt, but it's some good Shawn/Lassiter banter.
Shawn brought his face close to Lassiter's. “No, you wouldn’t know it – you’d see it.”
*snigger* Good job! :)
Author's Response: Rofl. Thanks. I\'m going to work on staying true to the prompt next week. ;P But really, thanks for the review - I was getting worried it was a piece of crap and no one felt like reviewing it because it was that bad. *hugs* You make me feel good. :D

“No, Dad! Not Heather!” Shawn blurted.
LOL So funny Stray! All of these 100 word things are. Literally dead as a doornail. :)
Author's Response: Rofl. Thanks Pat. I was rather surprised at how literal my mind took this one and I loved my brain for it. :)
Date: November 27, 2008 Title: Chapter 13: Are You Nervous?
I really liked this one. This line especially:
Although with his proclamation he sentenced himself to a lifetime of lies and consequences with laughter and regret in between.
It's just so true and I've thought it so many times, though not as elegantly as you wrote it. Great entry Stray! :)
Author's Response: Thank you very, very much Pat.
You know that\'s my favorite line. As I was writing the entry that was the one constant line in the too many versions this story forced me to write before coming to the version I posted here. :)

XDDDD Of course Shawn named the dog Henry! That's such a clever approach to the challenge. LOL, very funny. Great chapter Stray! :)
Author's Response: Hehe. Thanks, Pat! And what else would Shawn name his dog? lol
Date: December 11, 2008 Title: Chapter 15: Psychmobile
Implied character death is still a character death good Stray. I can practically hear Shawn crying those words; it breaks my heart. You did a great job of describing the crash, and I really like this one. Thanks for this Stray! :)
I'm the one who should be thanking you! I love it when a review makes me smile.
You know with 100 words there was only so much description I could afford and I do love hearing that I did a good job describing a scene. :D
Date: December 18, 2008 Title: Chapter 16: Henry Gets Caught
Stray posts 100 words.
Stray posts awesome 100 words.
*cackles like a maniac and reads the words once more with glee*
This is really a different take on the challenge, I loved it, the way Henry "end up at a wall that kept on building itself higher and higher until there was no way to make it past,", that's my favorite line. It gives me this great visual image to go along with poor Henry's feelings of being trapped. I LOVE it, and as with all your 100 words, you make every word count. =)
Author's Response: You know this idea was the only one I could come up with quickly, what with only have twenty minutes to get it written and posted and I don\'t, usually can\'t, work that fast with a good fic coming out. So when I wrote this and got your reassurance in this review that it read well and you actually had a favorite line I only wish you could feel the glee I felt. Thank you so much!
Date: December 26, 2008 Title: Chapter 4: Buzz [Was] Right
I can see why you like this one Stray. I love your 100 words, including very much so this one, because you manage to convey a whole story in just a few words. It's like a fic on its own A Buzz (implied) death fic is so sad, and you rarely see it, which makes it even more sad. This is also a rarely seen position of Lassiter to be in, for him to have to give the bad news, when he's barely holding on himself. Excellent job Stray, loved it. :)
Author's Response: Patty! Thanks for the review! I was telling you how this is possibly one of my favorite things I\'ve ever written - mind you I haven\'t written a lot yet - and then you came and read and reviewed it! That\'s awesome!
As for Buzz (implied) death fics, well, not many people want to hurt the man. He\'s to adorable and cool.
For some reason I like putting Lassiter out of his element, give him new surroundings and circumstances to deal with. You know Lassie\'s really a softy under all that bravado. :D
Date: December 27, 2008 Title: Chapter 11: Jules Feels Guilty
For the record, I am in fact looking at you in awe right now. You manage to make the most lovely angst and heartbreaking *insert overemphasized air quotes* "implied" (still just as real to me) death fics ever- and with only 100 words! I am giddy in the fact that you are making an epic, because if you can do so much with 100 words, I can only imagine what you'll do with more then that. Loved it Stray! :)
Author's Response: Dude, Pat, you made my day. I read this on my phone during a long car ride home and it made me the giddy one. I do love angst and I like thinking I can write it well and then you come along and make me know I can in someone else\'s eyes! That\'s such a wonderful feeling!
I am planning out a longer fic - total angst - so we\'ll see if I live up to your expectations.
Thank you soooo much for the review Pat!
Date: December 29, 2008 Title: Chapter 17: One Step At A Time
AWWWWWWWW!!! This was so sweet Stray, very fluffy. The image of Toddler!Shawn is to DIE for! I also love that it is Henry who teaches Shawn to walk, I think that's sweet, and I think he would have been the one to teach Shawn. Again, you rock at 100 words. Thanks for posting, I loved! :)
Heee. I'm so giddy right now over this one. I wrote FLUFF. It's so exciting!
Henry's a really great guy when it comes down to it. He is. He's just rough on the outside. Like a pineapple. *references that one "What's the Pineapple?" video* I love the image of him teaching Shawn to walk too. I wanted to get Maddie in there but I figure she's at work, de-shrinking someone.
Thanks a billion for the awesome reveiw Pat! Makes me giddyer... giddier... you know what I mean. And... END. :D

ROFL Stray! Gus as Robin Hood would be hilarious, and I'm still laughing. XD I love this, and it would be great as a longer fic. *prods* ;D Great 100 words, and I love how you told such a funny story with only 100 words.
Author's Response: Haha. I don\'t think I could write a feature length fic including Robin Hood Guster. It\'s a slightly terrifying thought. rofl.
Thanks for the great review, Pat!
