Review:Cassius Alcinder says:
Thanks for the swap!

Right off the bat I have to say that this is one of the most original ideas I've seen in a while. I haven't seen to many stories about Percy, and when I do, it's usually a Percy/Audrey romantic comedy, so this is somehting totally different.

I really enjoyed the whole concept of the magical shipping industry. You kind of took what we knew about magic trains and ran with it to come up with something new. And hallways on ships are called passageways if you were really curious.

You seem to have Percy's personality down. Although he's matured, I could still sense a bit of self-importance. And carrying a briefcase around fits his character perfectly.

Great start so far!

Author's Response: Likewise! I've never participated in a swap before. :P

This story is actually due a significant re-vamp. I've written a chapter that will be inserted before this one, and I still haven't decided if I need a second one in between.

I'm pleased you think this is original. I don't see a lot of stories about older characters (Percy is meant to be 62 in this story), and yes, there's plenty of romance around! I don't have a big interest in writing it, though.

Passageways! Thank you! I know nothing about ships, my experience with them consisting of two half-hour touristy trips on a dolphin-watching boat when we visited the beach. I keep avoiding questions of safety procedures, terminology, and basic protocol when I should really try to read up on it.

Hehe, Percy is great fun to write. I don't like when people make him out to be a total jerk, because there's more to him than that, but it doesn't take huge effort to slip in some of that self-importance . . . and it's something readers recognize easily.
