Oh, Alison, what a charming story! I'm so pleased this popped up on the random story generator thing on the front page, or I might not have found it. Loved it - thank you!

Bah! I'm totally hooked on this! Is there any more? I want more!

It's funny - when you were first posting this I couldn't keep up with the rate of posting - brain still fried from the big doses of medication. But now I have my head back together I can enjoy it at my own pace - and enjoying it I am! I'm glad I started again with it.

Thanks, K!



Author's Response: Thank you! There is more, but it needs abit or reorganising. It's still there, in the original version, this last bit was All Change 2 so I think its All Change 3. But if you can wait I'm going to probably add some bits in to make it make sense a bit better :-)

Ooh, helloello, I start reading this and you're writing *stage whisper* straight sex?! Shurely not? :D Was very amused by the last line and by Joey's reaction, and very pleased that she and Phil have got together at last - good for Joey! I like this creation more than EBD's :D

Thanks, K!



Author's Response: Lol. I like the stage whisper. And I doubt I could manage writing about straight sex, straight going in a room and shutting a door or closing a curtain is about my limit!!

Thanks, Myth Tree!

I am loving this story, Myth Tree, especially Reg - he's so lovely! And I like the way he described how he and Len grew close, it seems much more natural your way :)

Thank you!



Author's Response:

Not only have I always liked Reg but I used to think he was too good for Len. I've had to do a bit of rethinking for this. Thankyou Finn, your stories are so good I'm flattered that you like this.

I really do like this story very much. The characters all have their own distinct voices, especially Reg and Cecil, and that brings it to life in a lovely way :) and it's a nice and normal scenario, something that's happened to a lot of girls over time. I'm really enjoying it! Thanks.



Author's Response:

Thank-you Finn

Reviewer: Finn Signed

Poor old Cecil! What a horrible situation for her, entirely and thoroughly horrible! I'm glad the staff are on her side, but that doesn't always help in cases of bullying. I am hoping that things will start to resolve soon, but I seem to remember saying that in a comment a few updates ago! But the situation is very realistic and well-paced; there's no magic cure for bullying, and often it takes a long time to die down. But poor old Cecil!

On a side note, very pleased to see Tristan turning up and being a lamb :)

Thank you!



Author's Response:

Tristan is always a lamb, at least I think so. (Even before I read your version)
