Bio:
Well, that clears things up a bit, doesn't it? For those of you who don't know, I made the decision nearly a month ago now to delete no fewer than fifty-eight of my ninety-nine drabbles, leaving me with forty-one stories of reasonable quality.

This is a temporary bio.

Tea and Militancy Part I by Finn Rated: General starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 52]
Summary:

Miss Durrant's replacement, Susie Smith, arrives at the Chalet School fresh from jazzy London, and tries to settle into the quiet life of the Austrian Tyrol. She expects peace, quiet, and even boredom, but she gets rather more than she bargained for, with blizzards, ice carnivals, problem pupils, eccentric neighbours, and a dangerous flirtation to keep her well and truly occupied.

Originally published on the CBB, but subsequently tidied up and a couple of major mistakes edited out!

Um...OK. But what about poor old Carty? And Jack going silly for Susie...don't think he'll get away with that! There will be slappage!

Err...OK. I'm rapidly coming to alarming conclusions...and we are in a right royal mess.

Author's Response:

Oh dear. Am I responsible for more destruction of innocence?

Er...I now begin a lot of my reviews with 'er'. So, let me get this straight: they have...er...been a couple for an hour or two and then they were in bed together...um...OK?

Author's Response:

It happens...

Not that this is in any way based on episodes from my life, or anything...

*looks innocent*

Oooh, no, sorry, er, ooh, ah, eeh, oh. The famous Evelyn. There have been leaks, you know! Susie's in for a howler!

Author's Response:

Is Evelyn famous?

Um, no, er...OK.

Er. I think 'Fáfnir' would be quite an apt name.

Date: 09 Feb 2014 Title: Chapter 41: Tensions

Er. I feel some real sympathy for Susie. Imagine what it would be like if Mum never spoke to me again. Anyway, Evelyn came as a suprise. The leaks were small ones, and I thought Evelyn was naughty ! Fancy that from Evelyn!

Author's Response:

Where on earth did you pick Evelyn up from??

Er. Snort! I can well picture poor old Plato going red at Susie lifting her skirt! I still don't understand the reference to Fáfnir, though. Who is he?

Author's Response:

The dragon in Des Ring Der Nibenlungen - Tristan would know him from the Wagner opera cycle.

Er. Yay! Matty coming to live in Vienna! It means nothing to meeeeeeee, oooooooh, Vienaaaaaaa! Believe it or not, there are still some people in my old class who think that Vienna is a type of ice cream.

Author's Response:

Yeah, don't get your hopes up about that. 100,000 words later, it might have been one of those plotlines that...drifted...
