This is fabulous, Abi! I think I'm going to have to reread Macbeth to work out all the cleverness of it, but I'm really looking forward to seeing how it all works out.

Thanks!

This is awesome! but a bit scary. There's not really going to be a bloodbath is there?

Verity's terrifying!

I think this is a really great line:

"and if they aren’t I’ll jolly well put them to sleep"

such a great mix of school-girl slang and horrible menace! Thanks, Abi!

thanks Abi!

Thanks for reposting all this - now, how about the next bit of the story? :)

Can Nancy save Kathie from the James Bond villain's lair? Indeed, will the pair of them ever escape from the caves? And what will happen to the school if they don't? etc. etc.

I am hoping that she's going to find treasure. Or food, because I imagine they're both getting quite hungry. Or, failing that, a way out?

haha! oh, the poor loves...but at least they've managed to escape! Now, please let them have a good first day of work -be mean to someone else for a bit!

and by the way, is Nell Wilson still around? I can't remember.

Author's Response: I dont mean to be mean to them, it just happens. Anyway, I've given them A flat of their own, somewhere they can be themselves, a great leaving do, what sounds like it was one truely excellent jigsaw session in the cave, what more do you want?

Poor Joey, but hopefully things'll improve for her now! Their flat sounds very homely. And since Hilary's here, how about a wee cameo for her best friend Nancy? ;-)

these are interesting times for Joey!

Date: 25 Nov 2011 Title: Chapter 20: Chapter 20 25/11/11

I am trusting that you're not really going to do anything bad to Joey...and if you continue to refuse to tell us who's with Hilary, well, I'm going to allow my imagination to fill in the bits you won't tell us! :-)

Reviewer: jayj Signed
Date: 11 Dec 2011 Title: Chapter 22: Chapter 22 11/12/11

yeay for Nancy and Hilary! And I'm fairly sure that's twice now you've had Nancy climbing through a window...the poor love! Good for Joey to be finding her feet, too. Thank you!



Author's Response: Technically it is 3 times, though only the second time of writing it :-D She must uave gone through the window onto the flat roof to sulk in School of Adventure :-) She just lends herself to putting through windows ! And you see why I was "Noooooooo!" when you suggested Nancy comes to visit, without me mentioning it to you beforehand! But if Hilary can't have Joey or Phil, she requested Nancy

eek, what do you mean, you don't know if you're going to kill people or not?

anyway, this is great as usual - and I love Joey jumping to conclusions about what was going on in Hilary's room ;-)



Author's Response: Well I don't know! I've never been quite sure with this one, after all a few people are in different situations, there is no guarantee that they will survive things that they did survive in the original story ...

uh oh - I'm less worried about this cliff than I am about the likelihood of Joey not 'being careful' with Phil...



Author's Response: Lol. Yes I would be too, this wholesale throwing of selves off the cliff is a lot more dramatic than I expected !

Entertaining and educational ;-) I'm glad the dog got a good home, and given how Bruno turned out, it seems better it's with Phil than with Joey!



Author's Response: Lol. That's me, true educator. On useless facts and gerky trivia! But still! Thanks for reviewing. :-)

Author's Response: Well I've thought before that people might not all just get along the way it us implied in the books, and Javk doesn't have the family connection to the Russells to protect him.

Author's Response:

*pictures a puppy with jayj's face* *is hampered by not actually knowing what jayj looks like* *invents what jayj looks like* *re-pictures the jayjpuppy* *giggles*

um, I'm not sure that the jayjpuppy ought to be the source of that much hilarity, really, but if it means we get more updates, I spose I can tolerate it...

I'm very much enjoying rereading all this - and it's interesting to see patterns start to emerge - mainly that of Kathie sleeping lots while Nancy is forced to suffer various ordeals ;)



Author's Response:

Does it help if I tell you the jayjpuppy has curls? Well, ringlets really, on either side of its head, so it looks a bit like a spaniel. It's cute, but highly amusing ;)

Considering how much coffee they all drink, I'm always surprised that anyone at the CS ever sleeps at all ;)
