Argh, this is just way too addictive! I intended to stop reading at a reasonable time, and now here I am in the middle of the night and my laptop has a flat battery.
There's so much I love about this drabble: the friendship between Kathy and Nell; the teasing and camaraderie of the staffroom; the idea of Ruth Derwent being cheerfully and shamelessly promiscuous (she's one of my favourite minor characters so it was lovely to see her developed here) ...and of course every single thing about Nell Wilson. Some of her sarcastic replies were brilliant, and it's great to see how well she walks that fine line between friend and boss. I'm reeeeaaaaallllly hoping that the fact Hilda was at St. Mildred's at 2am was a good thing for Nell! And that Hilda rings her every night just to say goodnight is adorable.
My other favourite thing is how well Kathy's bubbly personality and occasional self-doubt comes across--even with the anachronism of the internet in 1952, everyone and especially Kathy feels very much in character. Great writing, and I can't wait to read the sequel tomorrow! =)
Author's Response: Thank you! I apologise in advance that the sequel isn't yet finished, I do need to get on and get some more done! Thanks for the lovely review, I'm glad you enjoyed, and it means a lot you saying they are in character as I already feel from your drabbles posted that you have Nell and Hilda's characters done perfectly in your stories, we obviously agree on their personality types! :-)

Do these photos show up on anything? Not my phone, not my tablet (Tesco Hudl), not my laptop, nor the school computers. The thing is, it's kind of hard to appreciate the humour if I can't see what the pictures show. :(
Author's Response: They did at the time, and should still but can't remember where they are to show you, sorry. There was a blurred picture of people on a night out in oxford, with glittery wigs on, a tree with no one in it, some chimps from monkey world and can't remember what else. The replies do give an idea of the tyoe of picture at least. :-)

Hi, back again! Third time through! This time, it's my thereapy for the end of T&M! I'll have to break the habit of reviewing every chapter now! (Although I have immediately broken the habit of starting every review with "Er."!)
Author's Response: Thank you for enjoying it enough to read it that often! I'm hoping to have some new updates soon.

12 days of POINTY THINGS?! WTF?! And I still don't understand the bird remark - is that on the same theme as Nell and Dickie bird watching?
Author's Response: In joke of the time. Abi and I were messing around.

Does Joey even know what the "certain items" are, because she doesn't seem to be a great user of them?! (Mind you, if she and Jack DO use them, the whole point is that no-one can tell... Perhaps they actually do it every other night!) :-D
Author's Response: She was catholic in a time when contraception of any kind was forbidden, so I'm sure she'd know but wouldn't use. She likes big families too, so even more reason not to.

What does being in the closet mean?
Author's Response: Hiding being gay, basically. Can be used for other things being hidden

First big epic I've ever read. Is 7:17 and I haven't had a wink of sleep. Ah, well, I'm not in the least bit tired! :) =D Smiley face time!
Author's Response: Oh dear! Hope you caught that sleep up another time! Thanks glad you enjoyed.

My relatives are really cool, actually, especially my crazy great aunt. My one cousin on my mum's side is a nightmare, though! He teams up with my brother and has disowned me because I'm a girl! Still, at least I'll have the SDL to keep me company this year - I took the Chalet School in Exile last year - seems weird to think that it's nearly one year since I read that book - I think I'll have a One Year of Jo Maynard Day - no, I'll just have a Jo Maynard Day, with lots of romance and Christmas to celebrate! 25 days to go!

Whenever I think of 'Joint Head' sounding a bit weird, I always think of Bill and the Abbess having joined heads! (My innocence is being more gradually ruined than that of some of my classmates!)
Author's Response: Lol I used to get that image too as a kid reading it. No rush to lose innocence, it never comes back, hold onto it!
