Thanks for the review! It helps a lot!
Jackie is THE reason my writer's block started, the next part of the story is from her perspective and I am struggling so much to write her, add to that my lack of writing skill and you end with a roadblock the size of the great wall of China.
As for why Hope and Sabrina, well the thing is that their appearances reference my previous fics. All of my fics take place in the same continuity btu at different moments in the timeline.
"Step Two" is right after "Monster Arm"
"Make Up" is after Mewberty but before "Freeze Day"
"The Safe and the Unlucky" is after "Freeze Day" but before "Interdimensional Field Trip"
"What I Really Want" takes place right after the season finale so its the farthest in the timeline, and such references the events of the previous fics, a bif point in the story is that Janna was not aware of how "Popular" Marco was getting in such a short amount of time, and the whole kidnapping thing just send his popularity even further.
Also the pacing issues... yeah my bad! That fic was mostly a "Part 0" to set up a big multy part story that would shift focus between characters each chapter, so it was mostly for setup and get stuff out of the way, on its own it seems its not that great.
