Date: 26 Jan 2012 Title: Chapter 95: He Was Her Heart's Desire (25/01/12)

Phew! Scary! I love the bit where he tells her he doesn't love her - that's a clever adaptation of the ballad's more traditional "scary" transformations - and the bit where Andra turns her to flame is pretty dramatic. Slightly alarmed by the prospect of being cursed for life, but I'm not sure there's a lot Andra can do now she's lost Tom! Thank you, Abi :D



Author's Response:

Thank you for the comment - I'm glad you think it works well :-)

Chattie, I've enjoyed this story very much, but what a sad ending for poor Mickey! And what an interesting song. Thanks for writing this for all of us :)



Author's Response:

A sad ending indeed, but as I said - blame it on the bunny!

Heehee! Poor old Nancy, forgetting what she'd done with it. It's like that where I work - you get interrupted, and then whatever it was you had in your hand has gone, only to reappear after you've ceased to search for it and have resigned yourself to its loss. Thanks, jayj!

Summary: Inspired by Commander Christie's comment in Shocks about Emerence.

"She's got the biceps of a young infant Hercules!"

Also following the thought - so often in comics, superheros have impossibly good and sensible parents. What would happen if "Cranks" like the Hopes were involved instead.

Cross over with various Comic Book / Science Fiction situations.

Poor old Emerence! It must be so confusing for her. I like how you're framing the story with extracts from the book, it enhances EBD's original in a crazy sort of way!



Author's Response: See that "in a crazy sort of way" seems to sum up lost things I do to be honest ... But it works so hey!!

Summary:

When part of the Chalet School fails to escape from Guernsey on time, members of the French Resistance help them to disguise the fact that it is a British School. But of course there is a price to be paid, by way of hiding British airmen, working in Cafe Rene and getting involved in ridiculous plots to hide Van Klomp's painting...
