I hated this, not because of how you wrote it, but I could feel their pain, I could see how both would react differently. I don't cry over books, I sobbed my darned heart out here.

Feel for Len as she is in the middle a bit here. Not sure about a new boy at this stage but do agree with both groups that things need to be worked out.

 

I've read the whole story, and am glad you are adding updates.



Author's Response: Thank you ! :-) really glad you enjoyed it. Am hoping this time the bunnies stay for a little while at least! *adds a few more Len/Ted at uni drabble bunnies and food* ...

Thanks for the update,I never read most of the books you mention but that doesn't stop me enjoying this (was never a fan of Enid B lol)



Author's Response: Glad it still works ok without knowning the characters then. Enid Blyton wrote so many books that some are rubbish, and so if introduced to the wrong ones the other good ones could end up being missed which is a real pity. In a way a pity she didn't write some under another name, as people might well have tried and enjoyed them if didn't know it was her. As is probably obvious though, Enid Blyton books and characters in general were and are my first and longest lasting obsession! Particularly The Adventure series, Secret Series and Famous Five (though FF are really variable, with some good and others not so good.)

I confess to be struggling with this because I've always liked Kathie as a character and how you are portaying her is very difficult for me.

However you draw me back, hoping against hope that Katie will get the chance to reform and be her usual self, and that Nancy will stay with her.

And I think that actually shows the power of what you are writing, kudos to you.



Author's Response: Gosh, thank you, Terry, not just for reviewing and being so nice, but also for ploughing through this whole saga. I like Kathie, too, and have no idea where this came from, but am willing to see where it leads me, as I have no idea at the moment, how it will end,

I can't cope....but I'm still reading......



Author's Response: Terry, if you can't cope, how do you think I manage??? *grins wickedly* I feel like running away and hiding, since most people on here love Kathie and are wondering what on earth I'm doing to her. But I think we have to accept that jealousy can warp the nicest person and make them say and do things that are very out of character. It's a strong feeling that can get totally out of hand. Add pride into the mix, and see what you get. Kathie and Hilda really gave me no choice, as it seems to me my characters do exactly as they please. Thank you for commenting.

My heart is sore for Kathie, and for Hilda, and Nancy. You know I am struggling to read this yet I have to say this, to me, is a beautiful chapter. God will help us if we ask, if we believe, if we trust....I know this from my heart, my own experience. .

Thank you for the reminder.



Author's Response: Aw, thank you, Terry. We all need reminders, all the time, don't we? Writing this is a wonderful reminder for me.
