Ok, ok, okay! I remember SOMETHING happened b/tween Mack and Lou, or was it Nick and Lou, AHHH! It was vaguely, but I think she did the lawsuit with him and that part of my mind was kept buried somewhere cause I forgot about it, but now that you mentioned this, I think I'm starting to remember bits and pieces f this traumatic event.

But OMG! These lines here:  

“Wanna join us?” she asked, motioning to where she and the guy were still connected. “Uh—no thanks!” I squeaked. “I-I don’t think my boyfriend would like that!” “He can join in too. The more the merrier,” the guy said, his voice a heavy rasp. “No, no, that’s okay! You…have fun by yourself.” I couldn’t get out of the room fast enough. The way that girl talked, the way that guy smiled, they had to have been on something. Whatever it was that other girl was sniffing, probably. The door had barely swung shut all the way when the noises started up again. I made a face and rushed away from the bathroom. There has to be another one around here someone. An empty one.

How NASTY! Oh yes, they must've been high on something, get a room people, have some manners! But no, *SIGH*

And where does this nasty b*tch Bobbi comes from, OMG I remmeber that b*tch?! I miss saying that word to her, B*TCH! GOD IT FEELS SO GOOD TO SAY THAT TO HER! HAHAHA She was trying to be "nice" really?? Pssh.

Anyways, kinda shocking that Nick told, I think he needed to, or else it was gonna come back and bite everyone else in the ass..

Great updates! Thank you so much for posting! :D

I love Chris, he's all sorts of adorbs! And his randomness is just on point: These lines here: "

Hey, d’you wanna know what sucks?” Chris asked with so much enthusiasm that I paused my stretching to look up at him. As I suspected, he had a large grin on his face.


Now, can't believe you Liam, telling Mack to tone down her accent, there is no way she can do that, and since I'm from the East Coast, there is no way I can tone down my Jersey accent if I'm trying to do an interview somewhere out of state, that is how I am, and that is how Mack is, being a Southern girl at heart, I love how Mack's mom was being defensive about it, and Liam being afraid of her..HAHAHAH!

Go for it Mack, you can do it! Dancing is so you, and always has been...

"This is why we're all in therapy..." "Lance and I have to sit on the opposite ends of the couch cause we'll cat fight..." LOL I had to add that in there...

Now, the therapy session between both parents and Mack were very deep, touching, you can tell the overall pain that Mack has been keeping bottled up, it's true though, despite Mack's stubborness, if I remember correctly, her mother wasn't really "there" for her, she says that she was, but she wasn't, similar storyline like my own father, who was never "there" for me, only my mom, my mom and I have a wonderful relationship, we tell eachother practically everything, and I swear we sound like old ladies that gossip in church.. "OMG did you hear what happened to Lisa??" LOL

Anyways: These lines here:   

“See, Dr. Pepper, this is why I don’t want to discuss this,” Momma said. “She’s too young to understand.” “I understand plenty, thank you!” I bristled, whipping around to face her.

Yes, Mack DOES understand plenty, she is very bold, and always tries to make the very best out of the situation, and "one can only hold their emotions for so long"

*reads next chapter* Good job on this one... :)

OMG YAY! I'M SO HAPPY! AHHHHHHH There is SO many things in this chapter! Reading this from my 📱 for the first time, OK OK from the top: 

I may see a different side of Liam now, he found a lady friend yes?? He sounds cute, I had a thing back then for Liam Aiken when he was in Lemony Snicket's, good times 😂

And BSB turning down Disney because reasons...yeah 🙄 Now, I love that Mack is trying to get her parents to speak up about themselves, and always her mom, trying to avoid the subject. 

 But JC on the freakin porch, at night, with Mackie, and he FINALLY told her how he felt and he admitted that he was wrong?! BWAHAHAHAH  That was just so great, and I quote: "This is why we're all in therapy..." I MISSED THEM SO MUCH! Great stuff, I needed this

A lot is going on here. First off, I'm happy for Mack and her development in being an all sound entertainer. I feel like she is the type to give it all up when it becomes too much, and as selfish as it sounds, I'd rather she work on herself and her relationships with her parents and the guys.

It really bothered me the way Liam kept insisting on inviting Lou. I get it, but if she said no, there should have been no pushback about it

It's sad hearing about Nick's situation, but I feel some sort of comfort that he at least has Mack who is willing to listen, and of course believe him. She doesn't deserve Lou's torment, and neither does anyone else. I hope she is going to tell her family what is happening

Anyway, I hope to see the next chapters or next installment soon!

What's most interesting here is her knowledge about Lou's "financial moves". I can't recall if I realized it before, but this is pretty huge. Not only would it affect her job working with them, it affects her dynamic with them as a group and with them as individuals.

Yikes. That kind of information she's holding is the absolute last thing she needs. I honestly don't even wanna see the unfolding of it all and the possible fallout. 

Nerdily Ingenious (Anonymous) on May 11, 2017 01:57 am (Something Like You)

What an interesting chapter. I was not expecting any of this for the therapy session. I honestly thought this would go in the direction of Mack solely trying to address what it is her parents didn't want to tell her or questioning their current feelings toward one another. I'm glad that I was suprised, however. Mack has a lot of pent up anger that she does not know how to work through, and it comes out in the form of violence, even in the way she snaps at people. That isn't healthy at all.

But it's good to know where this anger is stemming from and now she can work on solving it by better learning to communicate. It must have been hard for Charlotte to hear those things from her daughter, but those are Mack's feelings. No matter how much Charlotte thinks she's being, the perception of her actions aren't received the same way. I hope they work on it, because I know Mother-Daughter relationships at that age can be rocky, but drifiting even further apart would be such a sad sight.

I didn't expect so many updates from you, but I'm conent nonetheless. Can't wait for more!

Oh God, this chapter was hard to get through. Reading the scene with Nick was the toughest, considerind his actual history and the relationship that he has with his parents. It reminded me of the scene in BSB documentary where they were all at Lou's old house, and NIck refused to go in. Whatever allegedly did or didn't happen, my heart hurts for him. Now onto the story, I'mglad that Mack is finely getting the courage to tell her parents about Lou, and I'm glad to see that she'snot going through it alone. Can't wait to see how this will be resolved.

Ashley Loves JC (Signed) on May 10, 2017 06:20 pm (Something Like You)
I have no doubt that Mack will be successful. She's got that southern sassiness, that's so endearing, the same way that Britney does. That Q&A scene was so adorable. She just seems a little naive, so I hope the industry doesn't chew her up. I'm so glad that she in the boys are all in a good place again. I love their dynamic.

Ashley Loves JC (Signed) on May 10, 2017 05:35 pm (Something Like You)

Oh God, for Mack to say that she is unimportant is soul crushing. That poor child.

*Sidenote: the southern girl in me just fought the urge to type, "bless her little heart"!

 I was so flabbergasted when CHarlotte said that Mack never needed her. I mean,I know that in therapy, no one is at fault and every person is to blame for something,and blah, blah, blah... But the politically correct shit--- Charlotte is at fault, this is all her fault. Mackis the way she is because of her!!!


Okay, I'm done ranting. 


Ashley Loves JC (Signed) on May 10, 2017 05:00 pm (Something Like You)
Oh my gosh, that talk between JC and Mack was so relieving. She's been carrying so much on her shoulders to be so young, and she needs the boys back in her life, becuase it seems as if she'sessentially going through life alone, which at her age is difficult. I hope she follows through on therapy, and becomes comfortable enough to open up to her parents about what she'sbeengoing through. Especially regarding Lou.

Well color me a screaming MESS. I have waited SO long for this moment. And not just the reconciliation, but the expression of the truth. However, despite bringing up the topic, they both conveniently chickened out and glossed over it with the "well you have a bf/gf anyway" comments. They would still both have those things even if they were just a TAD bit more honest with each other. So why not just lay it all on the table?

Still. I'm just glad they at least attempted to be open with one another. I wonder how the therapy idea will work. Perhaps the experience will help Mack find ways to express her frustrations with the guys, too.

I got to this far too late, but I'm always rooting for you to finish and begin another installement of their relationships.

THERE YOU ARE WOMAN! LOL So I love the family togetherness in this chapter, if only my family was just united...pssh, long story on them, ANYWAY! Wedding bells, I really think that Mack's parents are maybe, just maybe miss being together?? According to their reminiscing?? Did I spell that right?? Its been a while since I read about those the saying goes: "Old flames may unite and burn even hotter than ever before..." HA!

Now, on to Nick! NICK! I FORGOT ABOUT FREAKIN NICK! I'm like, it's Nick freakin Carter, he's okay..:P These lines here:

“Y’low?” I answered.

“Blue. Wait. Are we answering in colors now? Is that going to be our thing? I’ll run out of colors pretty fast. They don’t teach much past the rainbow in school.”

I smiled into the phone. “You might have benefitted from staying in school longer.”

“Nah, I was making bad grades anyway,” Nick replied, “I probably did them a favor leaving. Unlike you, I bet you were a great student.”

I know, Nick Carter coming back into my life past professional reasons surprised me too.

Then Mack blushed, HA! While on the phone talking to Nicky, I like their small flirtatious banter..

Update more please! Don't wait a million years like you DID WITH FULL CIRCLE IN WHICH I WOULD NEVER STOP LOVING THAT STORY! LMAO!

Great job on this chapter! :D

I'm glad you're back!

Even if you think this is a filler chapter, I think it was good to get a better grasp on how Mack and her family work. Especially since I feel like there are still some underlying feelings between her parents, but they don't want to talk about it. Parents don't know how much of those behaviors they transfer to their kids. We see and take in more than they think.

Anyway, I can't wait for what's next.

Glad to see you updated. Huh, her family needs better communication skills. No wonder she has a hard time discussing her feelings if her parents don't share what they're feeling either. Can't wait for more!

One night spent together and I can't get you out of my mind.  It was supposed to be unattached, no commitments, and a clean break when it was all over.  I'm a fiend needing another fix.  You got me wasted on you.
