I'm also delighted that Shanra got her gift and likes it!
But most of all, I'm thrilled to have finished my reread of Beth's Awakening today. Ever since I realized that it's just one month shy of three years since I started reading that story, I've wanted to visit it again--after all, I'd mentioned rereading it, and now that I don't have energy for much besides reading and web-surfing, well why not?
Don't feel obligated to answer all those little comments I just strewed across the chapters, me dear. That tale is a treasure.
Now, if only Alyssa, Brandi, Frankie, Pantha, and Shanra would hurry up on their rewrites so I can do the same for them! ;D
