Well, I'll try...
I really liked the beginning part of this chapter when Dom was talking to her sister and mum, because it's really nice to show that they're still there for her no matter what has happened. Oh, I feel so sorry for her though! It must be a horrible thing to have to go through, but it was the decision I thought she would probably make. She just strikes me as that sort of person who wouldn't hold out hope for a miracle cure, which would probably have been unrealistic anyway.
"It's better if I go through the procedure and get my ability to conceive... removed" this was simply heart-breaking!
I'm actually really pleased that Teddy finally lost his temper with her, because he is human after all, and it might not have been believable if he had managed to stay calm all the way through. I love the fact that his hair colour changes to mirror his mood as well - it's a little detail, but one of those things that really helps to bring the characters to life.
Even though I'm glad he lost his temper with her, I'm even happier that Teddy and Dom made up. It really showed how strong their relationship is. The detective work they did was great as well, because there was enough build up to it and we found out different things gradually rather than everything all at once.
The letter! Oh my goodness, really, that was so good! I'm probably quite dense that I didn't expect it to be Delilah Jones, but I loved the way that he couldn't remember the name and then added it as a postscript at the end. (I'm also very glad that you didn't leave this on another cliff hanger! :P) My mouth is still hanging open from the revelation (not an attractive look, believe me!)
I'm really intrigued now about why her boss felt the need to do that. Of course, it could just be that she's an incredibly ruthless person and would do anything to get a story, including infecting one of her senior journalists with lycanthropy, but at the same time I get the impression that there's more to it than that... So curious!
This was definitely my favourite chapter so far and I'm adding this story to my favourites - I simply can't wait for another review tag just to find out when you've updated!
Author's Response: Hey there! Thanks once again for another one of your super duper awesome reviews! I do love them so! Apologies for delay in responding!
*hugs* I am glad you got your coherent thoughts back xD
I am glad you liked the beginning part - I wanted to show some mother/daughters bonding and I am glad I succeeded! Indeed, it is horrible eh. Yes, Dominique is definitely not one for hoping for a miracle cure.
Aw, it was quite heart-breaking for me while writing it too. *shares cookies*
Haha indeed, Teddy is only human, he couldn't possibly have remained calm all the way through with Dom being so silly. He doesn't get angry often but when he does it's bad - though the temper goes as fast as it comes! I love little details like that so I am glad you enjoy them too.
Teddy and Dom have a strong relationship yeah. They cannot bear to think of being apart =) I am glad you liked the detective work and that you enjoyed the build up as well.
Haha I loved writing the letter, am quite proud of it xD No you're not dense at all, a couple of people didn't guess it! I intended to leave it as a cliffhanger but then I thought it'd be all the more exciting if I ended the chapter with her name (thus the post script). Haha I am flattered to get such a strong reaction from you, thanks!
There might be more to it, then there might not be ;) You'll find out soon enough!
I am glad this was your favourite chapter, thank you, and that you're adding it to your favourites! Yay! I'll update by June end!
P.S. I have replied to all your MTA questions. Thanks a ton for them!
