I like it :D

If anyone talked to me about a mathematical compass I'd have said 'No, that's a pair of compasses' but that doesn't matter.

What does matter is that you had Kathie PMing Nancy and then saying 'Thanks Peggy'! Is this an EBDism or is it intentional?

Minim :pedantic smiley:



Author's Response: LOL ! Thank you. I get so fed up with the formatting that I cut and paste - will edit !!

Tristan isn't very computer-literate, is he? I'm googling 'motet'.

Wiki says: 'In classical music, a motet is a word that is applied to a highly varied choral musical compositions.'

Helena Handbasket... *snorkle*

Thanks!



Author's Response: Thank you ! Snorkle is a brilliant word ! I didn't have to google it, I "Finned" it, but I hadn't heard of it before then, so I thought a pair of Maths teachers might not know either!

You've correlated this post with my Parent's Evening earlier, giggle. They just say what they think, and they put targets on our reports, and concerns/workingl levels/ so on...

'I already have hopes that at least one person might be tempted. I would love to read any that people post.'    

Please don't tempt me! ...Oh wait, you already have.

Couple of questions... Is Filespace real (and if not can I borrow it?) and is there a set bar about how old a member can be (which is usually 13 in RL)?

Thanks for the brilliant drabble, Kathryn!



Author's Response: No FileSpace isn't real, the name is a mixture of a few Social Networks. But I'm happy for you to use it if you want to. Somewhere deep in the depths of the drabble I did mention the Bebo equivilent for younger ones but I can't rememember what it was!!! I'd be happy for you to use any of it. Only thing I might suggest is that I'd imagoine the teachers couldnt be friends with the students, unpess they are related perhaps. Not least because they wouldn't want to be admitting such drunkem goings on!! Go for it, will look forward to it!

Dear EBDu,

Could you be responsible for sending me some plot bunnies? As long as they don't come into exams, I think you could get into quite a bit of trouble in an exam if a bunny or two entered and started to talk to you.

Thanks,

Minim.

Lovely. *giggles*

Summary:

After the ice carnival, Susie needs to re-establish the bounds of her relationship with Nell, and matters come to a head when Matron Wilson steps in. An eventful trip to Spartz and the ensuing row force Rafaela to take a long look at her behaviour, and Evelyn seemingly cannot escape her world of fear. On top of this, there is the small matter of the junior school thief to be considered. As the end of term approaches, will any of them be able to find a solution to their troubles?

I've caught up now!

Matron Wilson's views are, unfortunately, very common, especially in those days! But isn't it getting to the point where her own family circumstances change, and she has to go to look after some young kids? Hopefully it'll happen before she gets the chance to broach the subject with Madge.

Thank you, Finn!

Don't hold us in suspence too long, Finn, or I'll send my SASnails after you!

My laptop turned off randomly when I was in the middle of reading this! *sulk*

I've caught up with the remaining bits at my dad's place.

I'm also glad there's not going to be a total stop of T&M though, when I saw the 'Completed' sign I was literally like 'NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo....'

As a member of the audience, thank you for writing this drabble in the first place! 



Author's Response:

Haha! Sorry to cause you distress! I'm glad you enjoy it so much. There'll be more soon, I promise.

Thanks for the comment!

If Cecily and Claire are too young to go, then so are Phil and Geoff.

Sorry for that, I'm just like that.

I would have been bored looking at cathedrals! :)



Author's Response:

Thats ok Minim, I had realised my error after I'd posted it!But I am sure you'd know that they would probably still be at Penny Rest :) Consider it an ebdism!

I guess it would have seemed unfair to the smaller kids that they couldn't go with their siblings to places that were further away. A young person wouldn't think that it might be for their sake that they have to stay behind.

Author's Response: He he - yes they do! I keep trying to direct them to you when they threaten to over randomise my drabbles !

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.

I read that through and have already found one difference between the Armada paperback and the Hardback, and that is the change from 'Fire-brand'(or similar) to 'Fire-raiser'! 

I'm enjoying this, thanks, Kathryn!

But seeing this reminds me I need to write more Margot, where my main character for next update is being most un-co-operative!

Thanks, Kathryn!
