Poor Len.  She feels pulled in both directions.  She wants to be there for her sister, but she also wants to be friends with the girl who is her sister's enemy.  not a nice situation.

Thanks Minim :-)

Yay!  An update!  Only found it by accident, though.  Haven't worked out how to check for new updates, yet...

 

Love the fact that everyone fell into heaps of giggles at finding K & N behind the trapdoor... (whistles innocently at the the thought of children's TV cartoon...)

 

Thanks Kathryn :-)



Author's Response: That's really useful to know Vick, is anyone getting updates? I seem to get emails when completely new stories are put on, but not as yet with updates.

Yay!  Good for Jem thinking to shove them together.  looking forward to finding out just what exactly Jo is up to though...

Thanks Kathryn :-)



Author's Response: Well I can finally give you credit for suggesting Rosalie, she is really good for Jack and she him. So thanks for the inspiration again!!

Glad Cornelia enjoyed the show & is feeling proud to know Jo.  Hope Stanley doesn't take advantage of Jo though.

Thanks Kathryn :-)



Author's Response: Don't know how I missed all these reviews ! Thanks for commenting. I think Jo is more than a match for Stanley :-)

oooh!  What is Jem going to say to all this?  I'm glad she's confessed to her sister at last & hope Mr Flower is supportive of Jo as well.

Thanks Kathryn... hope the plot bunnies keep on biting with more of this :-D



Author's Response: Yes, I want to get going on this again, thanks for prodding me about it the other day, I had totally not realised it had been over a month !

Glad Jem has the sense to leave Jo in America for now.  Yay for Rosalie & Jack's engagement & like how you've managed to switch her to school secretary.

Builds Wibble Shelter ready for what I think is about to happen....

Thanks Kathryn :-D



Author's Response: Wibble? Why would a simple trip to Spartz cause you to wibble ;-).

Oh, poor Jo.  How awful for her to be so far away and alone, even if she is safe, and what a horrific letter to have to read.  Glad she managed to perform still.

Thanks Kathryn :-D



Author's Response: Glad you enjoying it, thanks for reminding me to get going on it again :-)

I hope the theatre owner doesn't find a way to get rid of Jo, otherwise she might find herself having to return to her family.

Thanks Kathryn.  :-D



Author's Response: Not holding too much hope for that, but Joey is strong, she will be ok :-)

Reviewer: Vick Signed
Date: 21 Sep 2011 Title: Chapter 14: Chapter 14

Awww.  That's a good place to leave it for a (hopefully, very short) while.  It's nice to see Jo coming home to her family, even if it is under sad circumstances.  Hilary's letter was good, especially the bit about Jo teaching them to swear in Romany.

Thanks, Kathryn :-D



Author's Response: You are welcome, thanks for keeping my bunnies fed while I wasn't feeding them past few days!

Reviewer: Vick Signed
Date: 30 Oct 2011 Title: Chapter 15: Chapter 15

Yay!  It's back! And a lovely interlude, there.  Glad she's enjoying the time back with her family, and that letter is a positive note to her hopefully being able to resume her stage career.

Thanks Kathryn :-D



Author's Response: Lol - not for lack of you feeding the bunnies !!! :-) Thanks for reviewing.

That's such a touching scene showing Rosalie's feelings.  I'm not surprised she should feel a little jealous, since Jo & Jack were such good friends, but glad her logic has overridden any thoughts to confront them about it.    Lovely to see that Jack is so obviously in love with Rosalie, too, and tht he wanted to get back to where she was so quickly.

Thanks Kathryn :-D



Author's Response: Glad it came across ok. I don't blame Rosalie, but Jack in this universe is hers no doubt about it. Thanks to you suggesting getting them together many moons ago! Didn't realise then how good a fit it would be. :-)

Glad that Madge persuaded her to go to London, even though she wanted Jo to stay longer.  At least she'll be living with a friend, though air raids could be interesting...

Thanks Kathryn :-D

*feeds bunnies*



Author's Response: Yes, I think she should have an interrsting time during the war, if I can just work out whether war has been declared yet or not :oops:

Glad she's finally using the letter of recommendation. Hope she's just stunned the people she's auditioned for into giving her a larger role. 

Thanks Kathryn :-D



Author's Response: Yes, I hope so too ! At present have no idea. They may well be snotty because of the letter of recommendation, not sure...

Oops!  Poor Jo. She got a bit of a shock there,  didn't she?  Glad she's beginning to take notice things around her other than just her own little world. Hope she passes the audition as well. 

Thanks Kathryn :-D

Gah! What have you done to Jo???  Come back and tell me!  You're not allowed to leave it on a cliff like that.  An also intrigued by Hilary's companion. 

Thanks Kathryn (I think!) :-D



Author's Response: No reason I ever have to say who Hilary's companion was, now I think about it. As yet undecided as to who has grabbed Joey :-)

Reviewer: Vick Signed
Date: 07 Dec 2011 Title: Chapter 21: Chapter 21

Yay! An update!!!  Thank goodness you've taken us off that cliff edge & it was Jack who grabbed her.  Intrigued by Phil being taken by Jo & thinking that if he hadn't been told they were just friends, they were a couple.  Like that Jack knows that he & Jo wouldn't have worked out as well & that he's missing Rosalie.

Thanks Kathryn :-D



Author's Response: lol, well I was having great difficulty stopping Jack and Jo deciding that they needed to have an affair. I just don't think either of them would do that to Rosalie.
