Bio:

36. Writer. Nerd. Music Addict.

So, when I hit 30 (ugh) I realized it was time to get to "adulting" and I somehow went from working in live music to working in finance. Anyone who knows me in real life usually has a hard time processing that.


I honestly don't think I'll be writing anything new in the JB fandom; however, I've been informed my stories were well liked - sooo, I'm editing them and will re-post once I find them acceptable for public consumption once again.

One night.

 

One secret.

 

Just when he felt lost, suffocated by the world...a chance run in with a one night stand and everything changes.

I adore this. It doesn't feel like a "JB Fic" - it just feels like a story about a girl and a guy who had a nice bit of drama dumped into their lives. 

I actually laughed out loud at the "Riley won't fit in the baby bjorn anymore" line. I don't have kids - but most of my friend's do - and I've heard similar comments after a few glasses of wine over the years. Usually followed by, "Tell my baby to stop growing up!"

I feel (marginally) bad for Nick - just for the shock of the discovery. But, not that badly 'cause, to be fair, all Bo told him was "I'll take care of it"...she didn't lie. It's not her fault if he assumed that ONLY meant one thing. And she DID take care of it - quite well it seems too. Riley's a perfectly pleasent, fairly well adjusted toddler. Looks perfectly taken care of.
And I'll be honest - if a dude's first comment to me after seeing a positive pregnancy test was, "Do you need money?" (in reference to "taking care of it") I probably wouldn't be running back and informing him I had gone a different route either.



Author's Response:

You know I'm fan furling that you're ready thing, right? 🤗 Thank you! I wanted Bo to be independent and secure with herself as a mother when Nick entered the picture because it was fair and also just because a child is an accident, that doesn't mean it can't lead your life on a great journey. I'm rewriting the chapters as I go, more so toward the end because at the end I feel rushed, but I'm excited for you to read more. And thanks for reviewing. 💗

I don't think you went to easy on her at all - it's a difficult situation. I can see things from both their sides.

And hopefully Nick can eventually see if from hers - 'cause maybe the whole "persona" was just that - but, how the heck was Bo supposed to know that. To her he was just a dude who was apparently married when she slept with her. Whatever else may have been going on with him - that does not leave the best of first impressions. I wasn't thrilled with him for his, "I thought you saw more then that" shot at her. Dude - you are a grown ass man and you were both kinda drunk. Yes you connected - but really? Your first thought was "abort" (literally). 

Now if I was Bo I'd be annoyed with Stella for not giving me a head's up years earlier that running into Nick (at some point) was a distinct possiblity. Even if Bo didn't want to hear anything about him or talk about him - that's something you sort of just make someone listen to. Especially when your significant other is attorney for the father of your friend's child. Especially in a situation that could very well turn into a legal battle. 

Lovely as usual.



Author's Response:

I love live love your rant and I agree so much. I'm laughing at you giving Bo some credit and I love it because she's one of my favorite characters to write because she's so gentle and caring. I will have the next chapter up for you tomorrow! Just for YOUUUUU!

Just caught up - loving where it's going. 

I would have gutted Nick where he stood for taking my kid out of the house. And I don't even have kids. Hell, my friend almost gutted her own husband for doing the same damn thing. And that was a married couple living together situation (as in 'where the hell else could the kid be if not with dad?')

"I'd like to discuss changing her last name..." - slow your roll there munchkin. I like that Bo was just like, "wha?"


Joe as a Dad? Honestly? He's probably going to be the best of them...and I have no idea why he comes across that way. Maybe it's the fact that he's laid back and funny...but at the same time something about his whole aura sort of screams, "do not mess with me...it won't go well for you or your toys." Parents with that aura inspire respect in their kids I've found. 



Author's Response:

I love daddy Joe. And I love the track I'm heading with Nick's fathering. He's making mistakes here and there but nothing that can't be fix. As always thanks for reviewing and reading! 💕

Oh dear. 
I read the first knock on the apartment door and when her mind didn't automatically fly to "hey boyfriend is showing up today" - or at any point in the narrative basically - I almost felt bad for the guy. BUT if your three year old doesn't like someone after 3 months - why are you still dating them? 'Cause, kids just tend to like people - thus stranger-danger lectures - soooo...red flag if the kid automatically is like, "Nope."

 

Hopefully she just puts him out of his misery asasp.



Author's Response:

That's so a problem. Like hello. Your kid hates him, get rid of him. But he is technically just her rebound guy after not dating since being pregnant so does he even count? I'm excited to reread the next chapter and see how it goes before post because I forgot! LOL

EH better Cooper get out while the going's good. If he can't read a room then oh well. 
This was fun. I'm kind of eagerly anticipating setting the Jonas' (Jonai? What ever is the plural of that lol) on Bo - everytime you mention his parents coming down I'm like, "oh boy..."



Author's Response:

Expect disaster. But hope for better! LOL. I have to review the chapter and see how I'm going to edit it or if I'm going to let it rock. Prepare yourself.

"Why are Mommy and Daddy kissing?" - uh-oh. Is she jealous? Attachment issuesssss...but to which one? On the other hand - hey kid...you want a little sister right?

"Wear a condom this time" / "At least we're sober" - hashtag goals. 'Cause Bo doesn't want Riley to have a little sister yet. 

 

Bo facing off with the Jonas' clan...be still my beating heart. Praying no one is too much Judgey McJudgerson. Somehow I'm thinking Joseph being super chill was dropped in our laps to promote a false sense of security.

I definitely had to tread softly with the next chapter before that happens.

"Did your parents decide to kidnap my daughter?" I asked, sarcasm lacing my voice. 

Not gonna lie - even though I doubted you'd go that route - when she went to leave the apartment THAT was my first thought. I was like, "nope...I woulda sat there and let them glare at me all they liked." I wouldn't have trusted that group farther then I can throw them at that moment - Nick included.

 

Also - is it bad that after seeing the Doc there's a part of me that's kinda like, "yea...I could see this reaction from the parentals."??

...well someone's losing their medical license. Like for real for real. 

Also - good on Bo for not just losing her damn minds on the photographers. I kind of hope she treats Papa J like a pariah. She already tried capitulating to the in-laws and that worked out so well...

Date: 06/21/2020 Title: Chapter 15: Chapter Fourteen: I Shall Believe

I like that Nick stood up to his Dad...until he kind of rolled over for him when it comes to the press. If anything - imho - Nick should have to face the sharks first. But on the other hand - I kind of get the "give them the information now so that they aren't curious about it and will finally go away" angle too. 
Either way - I really hope Nick gets grilllllled. 

Mostly, 'cause it was obvious to anyone with half a brain that Bo had zero clue who Nick was when she met him (ie: therefore, did not know he was married...oh excuse me Nick...seperated) - so if the whole 'sleeping around on your wife' thing is anyone's fault it's his. And if the world is gonna 'blame' Bo then Nick should be doing his damnedest to set the record straight. 
(Then again I'm also an evil evil human and just wanna see Nick Jonas have to straight up admit that he offered money to a girl he slept with to 'make it go away')

Lovely update dearest.

Summary:

memory

For Kevin, life on the road has become stifling. A late night adventure leads him on a path he never expected. 

Savannah isn't sure what she's looking for in life, but it certainly wasn't him. 

 

A young couple reminisce about the things that brought them together and all of the things that could have easily kept them apart.

Awweeeeee....I forgot how cute this was. I also forgot that Joe's nickname was (according to them back then at least) Danger. So, yay for info! lol

And because I remember cracking up at this section the first time I read this story I must point it out - 

::and while it wasn’t Starbucks, he felt compelled to follow his nose and go for it anyway. He was living on the edge as it was, and a little hole-in-the-wall coffeehouse seemed to fit his particular mood.:: - Kevin the ultimate rebel. Drinking "not Starbucks". I remember finding this observation hysterical the first time I read this too (probably because I cringe whenever I have to give Starbucks money for a caffeine fix).

::When he entered he was greeted by the sounds of blaring guitars and drums that could cause hearing loss if listened to much louder than they were being played. It wasn’t quite the haven he’d been searching for, and it certainly hadn’t been what he expected when he smelled the coffee.:: - Proof that Kevin doesn't visit "Not Starbucks" often. No mandolins and questionable quality folk music to be found in a real coffee shop.

::he would always send her a text message that read: “Goodnight m’lady. May sweet dreams greet you and accompany you until you wake”. After reading that message the first time, she was no longer surprised that he’d been a Shakespeare fan when he was in high school.:: - Not going to lie - if I ever got that text I'd probably die laughing. It's also probably why I'm still single. 

...I didn't know this about Kevin? I think? (Is it real or fanfic info?) 'Cause now I wanna know if he finds Romeo & Juliet romantic...or not. 'Cause that's a deal breaker for me. 


::“But how does he make money?” Margaret asked.

“That is how he makes money.” Van replied. “He and his brothers are in a band, they’ve had some pretty good success lately. I just happened to bump into him while they were in New York for a short time.”::

...lol. That's it. Just lol. I forgot about this scene.


Also Kevin dear - Van isn't hard headed. She's just an HBIC who doesn't need a man to do things for her. Until she asks him to. Silly Boy Brain.

It's been so many years, I honestly don't remember if that was real of a make 'em up. 

 

HBIC is right. This applies to all of my OC's. lol.

“My little brother was protecting me from the possibility of getting hurt the way I have been in the past. He just wanted to gauge things before he spent too much time with you.”

- I read this and because I'm a cynical cynical person I had this thought, "Well gee Nick. Maybe you should have thought about how it would hurt your brother when you just decided to break up the band like no one else had any say in it..." and then I remembered this is a fanfic. 


“Oh, the girl from New York?” Frankie exclaimed. “The one that you told us you were going to…”

- Anyone other then Kevin and I'd think this was going to be dirty. And yes, I don't mean anyone other then a Jonas Brother. I mean, Kevin.

 

....I told you I was gonna go review nutty once I got a chance to start reading again. 



Author's Response:

Hahaha. It is indeed fic. And pre-breakup at that. It'll be okay. 

Because Kevin is an innocent. A dumb innocent.

“That reminds me of something you said not long after we met.”

“What did I say?”

“That we were destined for each other. That God must have made us like two pieces of the same puzzle, meant only for one another.”

Life for Kevin and Olivia has never been boring, but as the holidays loom over them, things are about to get interesting.

“Is there any particular reason you’re being such a tool lately?” Joe demanded as they waited to file out onto the stage that had been set-up in the large warehouse.

“I’m not being a tool,” Kevin replied tersely as he straightened the lapel of his jacket.

“You’re being a tool,” Nick added, shifting in his seat.

- I don't remember if you changed any part of this - but one thing I absolutely remembered was this story legitimately had one of the best openings in any fanfic ever. 
I mean - that first sentence just says everything now doesn't it? 

Sooooo freaking stoked that you're getting this up.

Also - I am so proud of Joe for resisting making a joke when Olivia mentioned Kevin hitting his head on the headboard. I'm proud of him especially because making a joke was my first instinct when I read that in an earlier chapter.
