D accompanies Jack to a party with Jack's hospital colleagues, plays with Legos, and makes a new friend.

Shorty #1 to "Zero at the Bone" - the day after - 4 Stars

Only eight pages. A mingle party, thoughts from a six year old girl, dancing and sweet, sweet D (now Anson) and lovely Jack.

Sigh - I just love them!
“Are you married?”
D flushed. “Uh...kinda, I guess. Might as well be.”
“My mom says boys can marry boys and girls can marry girls but some people don’t think they can.”
“What do you think?”
She shrugged, absorbed in her Lego metropolis. “Boys are icky, I wouldn’t wanna marry one. But that’s just m

"You go with Uncle Jack, right?" she said.
"What you mean, go with?"
Ellen rolled her eyes theatrically. "You know. Like Mommy goes with Daddy. And uh...like cereal goes with milk. You know."
D smirked. "Oh. Yeah, I s'pose I do."

Nice story, but if I was Jack, I would want my boyfriend to try more. D doesn't even try. He decides he doesn't like people and that's it.

I loved this short story. The little girl Ellen is adorable...

"You go with Uncle Jack, right? She said.
"What you mean, go with?"
Ellen rolled her eyes theatrically. "You know. Like Mommy goes with Daddy. And, uh... like cereal goes with milk. You know."
D smirked. "Oh. Yeah, I s'pose I do."

So cute!

I loved them dancing in the club.

Adorable.

I want to give D a cherry cordial, he's trying so much.

Favorite line:

Ellen giggled. “Yeah! But Uncle Jack is nice. He’s not as icky. He smells good and he doesn’t pick his nose.”

“Two of his better qualities, yeah.”

Yes, of course I had to go read MORE of Jack and D!!! This story did not disappoint. It was short but it did start where the other ended so in that respect it just seemed a continuation and not really a snippet. I'm glad she added this for the readers to indulge their need for more :)

A short story about Jack and D, who picks up right after the first book and i was surprised and IMPRESSED how well was written and how much the author put into 11 pages. WOW. This is AMAZING.

What a great, but sadly only 8 pages long short story which follows Zero at the Bone.

Jack and D feel like such real people to me. It’s like all I can think of right now is Jack and D and I want more. I absolutely want more. I love to see how good their relationship is, how real and honest. It is a healthy relationship, even with all the problems they still have. They talk about things, they discuss things, and they support each other although this could mean that they can’t be together all the

Piccola delizia di fic. Cosa non si fa per amore?! D che affronta un party coi colleghi di Jack e dimostra di non essere una finzione.

"Beh... immagino che tu avresti detto che prendo i cattivi."
"Come un poliziotto?"
"Sì, circa. Sai chi è l'FBI?"
Gli occhi di Ellen si ingrandirono. "Come Mulder e Scully!"
D aggrottò la fronte.

Dio, adoro questo siparietto di D con una bambina. Sarebbe stato un padre eccezionale, se solo il destino non fosse stato così crudele con lui.

A cute, short freebie from the author, following up briefly where Zero at the Bone left off!

Very sweet. Seville is so good. I felt all the awkwardness that D felt, and how much he was doing this for Jack and how much they love each other. This was a nice little story.

What a great, even though a very short story which follows Zero at the Bone, which I loved.

Jack & D (Anson) have slowly crept into my heart. They are such real people to me now....and how good it is to see how good their relationship is. D....never thought I would engage with him in such a way....i love getting to know what makes him tick!!!! And Jack....what a likeable and fabulous character. He has such a way with people...such a optimistic and upbeat person...how can anyone not adore him!

2012 Review:

As grateful as I am to Jane Seville for giving me further material to decompress with, it kind of failed.

These shorts seem to mostly be a little depressing, actually. Yeah, Jack and D are hanging in there and trying to make the relationship work, but it seriously crumbles. And we don’t really get resolution for these issues either. In one of the stories it gets to the point of Jack (view spoiler) just because the situation with D’s absences frus

Damn that Jack; he really does ruin everything. (90% of the way through a very short 8 page story) and I was thinking: cute, sweet, 4 stars, look at D. coming even further out of his shell, Jack isn't so much of an ass when he's just having fun and not being a moralizing, holier than thou prick...and then BOOM! D's ever so sweet awkward proposal, which Jack by the way brings up and introduces into the conversation because D was talking to his little 6 year old friend, NOT Jack. Then a

“I know. I get that yer givin me an out, Jack, but come on. I can face down armed hitmen but a party’s too much? My manly honor’s at stake, here.”

Aw! I like when there are free shorts that follow up on a really great pairing from a novel. The novel of course was full of action and all but the short here is just adorable!

I enjoy the happy times of a happy couple, so why not have more!? :)
just for the fun of it … <3

And D and Jack are super adorable together, now that they've settled into a p
