Thanks again, Abbybofu.  I always forget about this till I get the notification and then it's a lovely surprise.  Love the explanation about Queechy but am a bit afraid about Joey.  Still you can't really kill her off before December, can you? (And not even then please.)



Author's Response: She's getting really old, you know ....

This is always a lovely surprise at the beginning of each month.  Thank you very much, Abbeybufu.  Might it be impertinent to ask if Joey is going to get another calender next year?  Or how about an Advent calender again this year.

Although I feel desperately sorry for Joey and her situation I am beginning to lose patience with her for being such a spineless jellyfish.  Sorry!

PS Please, please follow canon for a while and bring Jack back from his watery grave.

Have you fathomed it out, Vick? I haven't despite the hints.  This time I think I have ruled out the father as any of the von Eschenau or Mensch families as surely Marie and Frieda would recognise the resemblance to one of their brothers?  So my bet continues to be on Eitel!  After all he did help Jo to rescue Rufus.

I'm loving this.  Thank your very much.
