Bio:
There seems to be only a limited amount of my drabbles showing, so best way to browse them is to look via the Series option below. That also groups the drabbles together better so if you like one of a type you can read others. There are some rather daft (and often painfully "Just getting into writing and bad at editing") drabbles from a few years ago that are quite different to my current writing, so apologies for those in advance - I do know they are bad but there's too many to go back and sort them all !

I like reviewing and I like reading reviews, or getting messages if you prefer that method. The fun bit about drabbling for me is the social contact and hearing what people liked / wibbled about / felt was realistic / unrealistic.

I still like the "sod the guests tell them to come back tomorrow bit here :-)

Well, Jo concluded, watching them as they stood chatting to Rosalie and Nell, their arms lightly round each other’s waists, they were devoted to each other. Good luck to them, she thought, with a wry smile. The chance of happiness doesn’t come along too often; you’ve got to grab it when you can. And Nancy and Kathie certainly seemed to have done that.

Thanks jayj, this always made me smile :-)

eeeek ! I was slightly wondering if you would do it as a "murder of reputation" or something, but we actually have death in the chalet school !

This entire update is just hilarious minim. I love the idea of the 26-tuplets, and you have totally set the "Funky Gibbon" off in my head, not to mention "Listen Very Carefully, I will say zis only once"

I am definitely beginning to see why thee and Myth Tree and I share a sense of humour with your entertainment choices :D

I don't normally like the idea of the rating system, but this whole update just had me on the floor laughing so it needs a 10/10 :D

Summary:

It's Scar's second term at the Chalet School, and her two greatest friends, Ellie and Mary, have joined her. But what weird things are bound to happen?
