1. Chapter 1 - Two Can Play at that Game by MaryR [Reviews - 8] (801 words)
I was chatting to Jenny the other day when she emailed to say she'd been reading Unholy Trinity. That set me thinking. Since you’re ALL still waiting for me to return to ND - and might have to wait a wee while longer! - how about re-posting Hilda’s Revenge in the interim?
I began posting it in 2006 and ended in 2008, so some of you won’t have read it, and those who were around at the time might relish the chance to re-visit it. It’s easier to re-post something, at the moment, than to try and type up several thousand words, which is how long some of the ND chapters are. My shoulder just can’t face it yet, but if you keep your fingers crossed, that might change.
Before Revenge, though, you need to read Turning the Tables, as this small drabble sets up the plot for the much longer Revenge. Meanwhile, Hilda is still slumbering peacefully under Matey's watchful eye.
2. Chapter 2 - Champagne and Tears by MaryR [Reviews - 7] (2413 words)
Thanks for the unexpected and lovely comments.
I have to say that when I first re-read this, I cringed, realising how much I've learned as a writer over the past nine years and how poor this is. So I'm changing it somewhat as I go along. Not that my writing even now is up to much! *rolls eyes*
3. Chapter 3 - A Standing Ovation by MaryR [Reviews - 6] (2185 words)
Many thanks to those of you who seem to be enjoying a re-run of this small drabble, much to my surprise. I’m sorry to have kept you waiting so long for this update.
”How many people has she been conspiring with?” Oh, lots, Elennare. You know Nell! *winks*
Anne, I’m sorry this is having such a tearful effect on you, *grins wickedly* but I’m glad it once led you to read Le Petit Prince. If you all recall, that’s the book that helped Mother Abbess break through Hilda’s grief at Xmas in ND. Oh, and I can thoroughly recommend Rilke, Anne, especially his Letters to a Young Poet, though I seem to have mislaid my own copy.
4. Chapter 4 - Write it on Your Heart by MaryR [Reviews - 6] (887 words)
Thank you so much for the kind reviews. Just a reminder that this story takes place only three years before the start of New Dreams.
This is only a very short chapter, to whet your appetite for the dénoument. *rolls eyes* Sorry....
6. Chapter 6 - Soft Moments of Peace by MaryR [Reviews - 9] (653 words)
Thank you so much for all the kind reviews on this little drabble of mine.
This is the last little bit, a sort of winding down.
I'll start posting Hilda's Revenge shortly, though perhaps you should favourite me so you get an alert when it appears.
