To get the right word in the right place is a rare achievement. To condense the diffused light of a page of thought into the luminous flash of a single sentence, is worthy to rank as a prize composition just by itself. Anybody can have ideas--the difficulty is to express them without squandering a quire of paper on an idea that ought to be reduced to one glittering paragraph. ---Mark Twain.

OMG I adore this so much.

" she could change her mind so suddenly and he had to fall in line huh?"

I love his thought process throughout this piece.

he basically goes from " you know what? NO. I am not going to let her get to me like this & I have a perfectly awesome girl waiting for me..."

to " just great...OF COURSE none of that really matters because the only perfectly awesome girl I want to be with is her."

well that's my take anyway, haha...great job. & yay for the title...henry's advice during the first episode w/ abby.

aaaaaaaaww<3 I adore this.=) seems so true to their characters that after everything jules would still be scared, while shawn is continuing to push her to take a chance on them - cause even if he's scared as well, he knows they're worth it. =) <3333

MO! so regardless of the fact that I've just come to expect brilliance from you whenever you post something...I'm still left in awe each time.

I love love love how you portrayed Juliet in this, she's in " this-is-strictly-business" mode while trying to fight her " why-do-I-like-him-holding-me-so-much?" thoughts. haha, classic jules & you wrote it perfectly.

Author's Response:

Aw, Sam, I'm honored - thanks! This one was hard to write but fun too!

AAH, holy mother of pearl.<3333 this is absolutely fantabulous! Mo, I told you last night that I was going to leave our convo so you can go be brilliant & as usual you guys delivered.=) 
shawn is never one for getting mad, or voicing when he actually is for that matter & especially when it comes to jules as we saw in the finale he doesn't like to.--you guys wrote that out amazingly. 
&its so IC of jules to be so inthralled with the work and actual case that she didn't take into consideration that shawn was really only trying to help.O_o 
but GAHH when she does?! the kiss?! I LOVE spontaneous during/after fight kisses & this one was done SO well.<3333=)

you hit the nail on the head with shawn's thoughts here. 
you conveyed brilliantly the fact that he does really care about abigail but he can't bring himself to feel more for her than what's actually there--friendship. 
and shawn/gus<3 gah, you're incredibly on point about how as much as he wants to say the words to gus, being shawn, it just doesn't work that way. gus however, just gets it & doesn't need to hear him actually say what he already knows. 
and last but not least SHULES REVELATION.<3 haha, as confident as shawn has tried to be I am 100% percent sure that you are without a doubt right about him being scared & you wrote it amazingly. 

Author's Response: Aw this amazing review kicked me in the ass and made me get back to writing a new chapter again. Thanks!

aaaww glad my review inspired you! haha =) with all the work I have to get done for school, I may need some incentive myself!

but YAY, I like how out of his element shawn is in this - it definitely shows how much he was affeceted by what happened. I know first hand that it's quite difficult writing him post -finale haha, serious shawn is tough! nice job though.=D

Author's Response: Thanks for the word encouragement! Good luck on your story, I\'ll make sure to take a peep.

"He was slightly taken aback by that revelation, but he was quickly snapped back to reality when Juliet just smiled at him." 
WOW this line is just genius and it fits Shawn SO well.=) The fact that he's so comfortable with her is what makes it scary to him & yet whenever they're together or she just smiles at him, it makes it all okay.<3 
"She kept telling herself to look away, but she couldn’t tear her eyes from his." 
And NOW you've done it w/ Jules! so perfect, this describes her feelings about him in general amazingly, as well as fitting into this fic.=D She keeps trying to tell herself that there's nothing there with them, but her head & heart aren't listening to each other.<3 
"Jules you want a sleepover? Complete with matching PJs and fuzzy slippers?" 
HAHA, this is SO Shawn, I LOVE it. =) & when she responds to him at the end about the right side of the bed thing my mouth dropped as big as Shawn's must have! That was so adorable & very Jules like --always keeping him on his feet. 
Basically their interaction here was UH-MAZING! The format was a little hard to read since the dialogue isn't indented, but other than that I adored it! =) awesomeness.<3 

Author's Response: Thanks for the wonderful comments! I had fun writing this one. I giggled at the last comment, because you nailed it when you said she likes to keep him on his toes!\r\n\r\nAlso, I tried to clean up the format a little bit to make it easier to read. Thanks for reading!

Allison Emily Spencer, the daughter of Shawn and Juliet, didn't know what she signed up for when she chose the parents she did. Though at the end of the day she probably could have done worse. A lot worse

MIAAA, this is so wonderful.<3

I already told ya how much I loved the concept from when you sent me a part of it --but it really is great.:] 

I love how even though it was never fully stipulated like it was w/ Shawn, that just being around it since she was born has caused her to feel the pressure.

And the way Shawn handles it is perfect, and the last line is hysterical. Because he *would* say that.<3

I adore your fluff, sis, & youuuu.<3
