    Chapter 11

    Hello FanLit, Actually Ethan did not leave a clue. He str8 out told us where it will go. And for the record, I am not attacking Ethan for how the story ended and I believe Ethan wanted this sort of reaction from us because it make us think about the story and how WE have made the same mistakes Jamie made in this story. Well written stories always elicit an emotional and rational reaction from the readers; very good stories will lead us to some realizations about ourselves or life in general. This story teaches us to NOT form conclusions until we know the entire facts. I believe, we are all guilty of the mistakes Jamie (and to some degree Ali) made. Yes, this is a very well written story. What I am bitching about is that I want one more chapter, maybe several years in the future, that ties it all up with a nice bow on top. To me, this story is like a great road trip. The destination is NOT the point. The events that happen between departure and arrival is the import parts. I am suggesting, ok bitching, about the fact that we have not arrived at the destination. Yes, we know where the story is going; however, with this ending we have not arrived. We just know where the story is going. We need an arrival. Thanks for reading my thoughts (again) RossN PS- for those of you take exception to my use of the word Bastardized; here is the definition from the Oxford Dictionary: (of a version of something) lower in quality or value than the original form, typically as a result of the addition of new elements. "by the 1760s, English cookery books were offering a bastardized version of French dishes" What I am saying is that by not finishing the story, Ethan is forcing me to finish it and my version is and will be of less quality that what he would have written.

    Chapter 11

    Many years ago, when I was in an American Lit class in college, I had to read a short story, The Lady or the Tiger. If you end this story line here, you will be just as frustrating a writer as Frank R Stockton. The Professor for the class, Dr. Davis, made us write an essay about The Lady or the Tiger. She later told me that in her 33 years of teaching, I was the only student she ever had that did not write their essay about what the guy got (the lady or the tiger). My essay addressed how I thought it was wrong for the writer to expect us, the reader, to finish HIS story. Ethan, if you stop this story here, you will be guilty of the same crime. That crime is ending a story with out a CONCLUSION. The conclusion can be a Tragedy; or a Happy Ever After; however, it needs to be in the writers on words because a good story tells us as much about the writer, and their thoughts and moods, as it does about ourselves. By ending this story here, you will force us, the readers, to create a bastardized version of YOUR STORY in our mind. Yes, I used the word bastardized correctly, because you will be forcing the reader to create an unholy blend of your thoughts and perspectives with our thoughts and perspectives. The end result will leave a 'bitter taste in our mouths' and minds. Now; you need to decide if this story will be a Tragedy or a Happy Ever After and get back to the key board and finish the damn story. Thanks for leading us on this journey, RossN PS- I seldom leave a thought or comment about a story, but this story is so well written, I felt compelled to post the above. I would say "good job Ethan"; however, the job is not finished. Please finish it.

    Chapter 17

    Well I guess my own theory might be true true. I figured that Sawyer's mother was or was descended from a pack and was either shifter or the child of a shifter that could not shift. I also figured her to be an Alpha in nature. It seems she is an Alpha in nature, now lets see if she is a non-shifting child of a shifter. That would explain why she has the pack of dogs. She can't be part of a pack of wolves (because she can't shift) so she has created her own pack with the dogs where she is the Alpha. Hmmmm she is gonna be a very upset lady when she realizes Jimmie is a shifter. I bet the three of them become a pack with him as the Alpha; if he does not become the Alpha of the pack of shifters. Or maybe she can shift and she uses her perfume to hide her inner sent from other shifters to protect her non-shifting son. Self imposed exile from the pack to protect her son. That theory actually fits with her character development better than the theory above. Many ways Mann Ramblings can go with this story line. All of them interesting!!!
