Summary: I've changed the title of this volume, as I've decided to keep it short and only include the events of the weekend and early Monday morning, which you already know and in which there are precious few blessings. I'll then start a fresh volume when I get to Hilda's dream, after which the rough seas calm down a little, hopefully, and I'll be posting new, unread chapters. Thank you for your patience with this re-post.

Summary: Set in 2014, a young visitor to the Platz stumbles upon the Chapels and the graveyard set up later.

By the nature of this drabble there's LOTS of main character death. Apologies for any errors on dates, I've tried to make up reasonable birthdays and ages wherever I could. Although set in present day, apart from a few references setting the scene and character, it actually covers events happening from just after the series ends, up until the present day.

Summary: It's 1948 and the Chalet School has been invited to visit a new school which has opened in Briesau on the Tiern See. Having managed to rebuild the school's reputation over the previous two years and avoid closure, Miss Annersley is understandably keen to have an uneventful trip. But of course nothing is simple when Lucy Thomas and her Aunt Jane are around. Not to mention Madge having ideas for changes at the school which could have far-reaching consequences, particularly for Miss Annersley. What starts out as a pleasant winter break from the school routine, rapidly turns into a nightmare....

Readers of "4.50 from Haddington", "Murr-durr Most Chalet" and "The Body in the Chalet School Library" will meet some old friends.

Summary:

This is also on LGM. A crossover with Charlotte Sometimes, another of my favourite books, with some alternate history. Not only on the Chalet School side. I know the modern part of Charlotte Sometimes was meant to be set in the 1950s, but this updates that to the mid-1970s, by when Charlotte should obviously have left school. It is quite dark.
