Hi, I really enjoyed this, and was so happy to find it.

I also wanted to share a quotation with you from the late great Frank Zappa:

"The mind is like a Parachute, it only works when it's open".

Many thanks, i'm off to find your other works, now! T

Poor Edward, he just doesn't want to think his friend could be the bad guy. He better learn to listen to Bella's intuition, she spotted that evil bastard right off the bat! Glad that Charlie kind of likes Edward, too. That will be a help.

Well Edward, what can I say? Bella has a lot of family and friends who care about her. As a result, they keep showing up on your doorstep! I keep forgetting to mention how many tears have been shed in this story. I sure hope there will an equal amount of happy to balance the sad!

Evidently the whole family was in on this, except Bella, Edward and Jack! It looks suspiciously like matchmaking to me, which will be okay as soon as Ms. Swan and Mr. Cullen get the picture.

If Demetri thinks he's going to move on Bella, I think Edward will have some strong objections! The three of them have had a good day together, and now that Alice is here I'm sure Bella feels better. She may as well acknowledge how attracted to Edward she is, too.

The more Bella finds out about this family, the more she knows she did the right thing bringing Jackson to meet them. They are all getting to know each other, and as long as Victoria doesn't stick her nose in all should be fine! Even Edward is loosening up a bit.

Poor Edward! To go through what he has and still be sane is amazing! That was just heartwrenching. Since he looks like an older Jack, no wonder she's holding him while he sleeps! Boy, I hope they get together!

Just had a feeling you would write Edward this way. His reaction to Bella and seeing his son again  are all over the place. Carlisle and Esme's home sounds wonderful. I would stay there instead of a hotel if I had a choice. I'm very pleased Bella has stood up for herself and her son. The girl is made  of good stuff, her dad would be proud.

I'm sure things will turn nasty soon, but wouldn't you know, Edward and Bella take one look at each other and it's magic? Esme is my favorite, followed by Rosalie, then Carlisle and Emmett. Edward is an unknown factor so far. It would be wonderful if everything fell into place, but we know that won't happen, not for a long time anyway!

I really think Bella is very brave, to risk losing her son. She will do the right thing if it kills her! Of course, Jack will no doubt have some say-so in all this, at least I hope so!

Tanya is a really fierce friend, we should all have one like her! She sure has dug up some interesting stuff on Victoria, I hope someone nails her on it, the lying bitch! Of course, Bella is going to the right thing by her son, I would expect nothing less!

Bella and Jack's house sounds just right and the two stores are going gang-busters. Alice and Jasper are finally married, and the only fly in the ointment was Jack's broken arm.  All's well, and then the bombshell! Jack's parents may have been found! What does this mean for Bella?????

Date: 25 Jun 2012 10:13 PM Title: Chapter 6

That was a neat chapter, with the book deal and finding out about Jack's musical talent! Life is getting good for Bella and Jack, and then they bump into Renee. What an upsetting encounter that was! Bella sailed through with flying colors as did Jack. Kind of felt sorry for Phil, though.

Reviewer: k1942 Signed [Report This]
Date: 25 Jun 2012 9:58 PM Title: Chapter 5

I kind of wondered when Bella began to copy out her nightly stories to Jack, if that couldn't work into something more. I guess I should buy that crystal ball I saw! Now that she's calling him son and he's calling her mommy, it's a natural step to making it official. Helps that Jasper will help her. Bella is surrounded by friends and family who all love and care for her. Lucky girl!

Date: 25 Jun 2012 9:43 PM Title: Chapter 4

I guess every cloud really does have a silver lining. By saving Bella from Jake's assault, she and Leah developed a lot better relationship than what they had. It also confirmed Bella's keeping her heart mostly for Jack and her family.

Reviewer: k1942 Signed [Report This]
Date: 25 Jun 2012 9:27 PM Title: Chapter 3

You did a nice job of lining all this out and filling in the growing bond between Bella and Jack. He's doing so well fitting in to his adoptive home. Maybe because he's getting therapy and lots of love, the boy is adjusting real well. It sure was his lucky day when Bella found him!

Reviewer: k1942 Signed [Report This]
Date: 25 Jun 2012 9:12 PM Title: Chapter 2

It really is who you know, I guess, but it sure worked out for the best this time! From what Jack can remember, it doesn't sound good, what happened in the park. It looks like his mother dropped him like a hot potatoe to get what the blonde guy had for her.  I'm hoping they can't find his family too soon, so Bella can care for him.

Quite a shopping trip! Bella sure found more than she was looking for. How can it be  that a little boy could just turn up in a dirty alley in downtown Seattle? Boy, you just never know what the hell is going to happen, do you?

Absolutely loved this story. Its been in my too read list for a while now and I finally got around to reading it. I found it on a rec site and it had nothing but great reviews for it. 

The dynamic of this story was perfect. I loved the plot and how the characters interacted. Also it was fun to see how you incorporated all the characters into the story. I have to admit I'm not a huge Jacob fan so "douche" Jacob didn't bother me. The only way I like Jacob being on the HEA side is if he's gay or an innocent brother-type. 

I loved Jack. His personality was perfect. I laughed too many times to count with some of the things he did or said. All around, great story. I'm sad to see it end but I loved the HEA that it ended on.

Author's Response:

Once again, I want to say thank you so much for all of the love and adoration that you guys have given to me and Parachute! People are going to get tired of hearing me say how much in awe I am of my readers and their giant hearts, but it's so very true! This story wouldn't have been nowhere near as good as it was nor had the kind of response that it had without my loyal and fuckawesome Verucas! (Heh, haven't heard that in awhile, have we?) I am prostrate at your feet. (Not to be confused with prostate, lol) I owe you all so very much!

The blogs have undergone some work over the past two weeks. KitsuShel.blogspot.com will now be used as a hub for everything that I write, with links to actual story blogs. Parachute's will remain up, just under a different name. Parachuteff.blogspot.com My next fic, Rabbit Heart's blog is up as well. There are a few pictures and teasers up there as well. =) RabbitHeartff.blogspot.com

Rabbit Heart will start posting this Friday, February 18th and will follow the same update/posting schedule as Parachute. I hope that you guys decide to continue on that journey with me as well. =)

Teaser from Rabbit Heart Chapter 1:

The streets were eerily empty as the girl stealthily slipped out of the Beverly Hills house, although one could quite easily exchange the term mansion in its stead. Her shoulders were hunched as she made sure her hood was firmly covering her blond hair, her back laden with only an over-stuffed backpack and a guitar case. She needed to escape quickly, unseen, and today was the best time to make that happen. It was just after eleven pm, on Christmas Eve and there was practically no movement on Santa Monica Boulevard. She traveled on foot for almost three miles before coming across a cab running on the desolate streets.

She quickly stowed her meager possessions in the backseat before climbing inside.

"The nearest Greyhound station, please," she requested as softly as she could, but still within the driver's hearing range.

The older man glanced at her in the rear view mirror. If he thought anything was off about the way she kept her face hidden, he made no mention of it.

"Heading home for the holiday, sweetie?"

"Something like that," she murmured, staring out of the window and watching the lights pass by. They reached their destination in just under fifteen minutes and she handed him a $50 bill.

ok im like on chapter 27 and im lovein it but i have a question why does Emmett call Edward baby brother i thought ED was older than EM?



Author's Response:

*scratches head* Yeah, I guess that wasn't too clear, sorry. Even though Edward's older, Emmett has always been bigger. So, in this instance, little brother is a size reference, not age.

Once again, I want to say thank you so much for all of the love and adoration that you guys have given to me and Parachute! People are going to get tired of hearing me say how much in awe I am of my readers and their giant hearts, but it's so very true! This story wouldn't have been nowhere near as good as it was nor had the kind of response that it had without my loyal and fuckawesome Verucas! (Heh, haven't heard that in awhile, have we?) I am prostrate at your feet. (Not to be confused with prostate, lol) I owe you all so very much!

The blogs have undergone some work over the past two weeks. KitsuShel.blogspot.com will now be used as a hub for everything that I write, with links to actual story blogs. Parachute's will remain up, just under a different name. Parachuteff.blogspot.com My next fic, Rabbit Heart's blog is up as well. There are a few pictures and teasers up there as well. =) RabbitHeartff.blogspot.com

Rabbit Heart will start posting this Friday, February 18th and will follow the same update/posting schedule as Parachute. I hope that you guys decide to continue on that journey with me as well. =)

Teaser from Rabbit Heart Chapter 1:

The streets were eerily empty as the girl stealthily slipped out of the Beverly Hills house, although one could quite easily exchange the term mansion in its stead. Her shoulders were hunched as she made sure her hood was firmly covering her blond hair, her back laden with only an over-stuffed backpack and a guitar case. She needed to escape quickly, unseen, and today was the best time to make that happen. It was just after eleven pm, on Christmas Eve and there was practically no movement on Santa Monica Boulevard. She traveled on foot for almost three miles before coming across a cab running on the desolate streets.

She quickly stowed her meager possessions in the backseat before climbing inside.

"The nearest Greyhound station, please," she requested as softly as she could, but still within the driver's hearing range.

The older man glanced at her in the rear view mirror. If he thought anything was off about the way she kept her face hidden, he made no mention of it.

"Heading home for the holiday, sweetie?"

"Something like that," she murmured, staring out of the window and watching the lights pass by. They reached their destination in just under fifteen minutes and she handed him a $50 bill.
