Hello, Laura! Thanks for the mention. I still can't get over how exiting it was to be your 100th reviewer. The pleasure's all mine.
Merlin, James and Val are just a fluffy bunch of adorableness. I'm guessing that when they finally get together, their children will be born all coated in rainbows and sparkles and glitters, because, even though that's not possible medically, that's just the level of their cuteness. :)
I appreciated Val and Hope's confrontation. I'd like to think that her family is actually trying to understand her, because, yes, both parties overreacted, but I think the family is more at fault.
Val's talk with George...Ah, the big one. The one we've been waiting for since we figured out that it would eventually happen. I had kinda been thinking that it would be longer, much more, you know...deep. Like in an ostentatious manner. But this was perfect. Though short and simple, so very sweet and sincere, and through all that joking around, it still managed to come out as heartfelt. Not many others would have been able to pull it off. Well done!
This is one of the best Christmases i've read in fanfics. Not only because of the vividity and fun that happened, but also because it has led to much development and growth of Val as a character. And of course, how can I forget, James and Val's almost-kiss. (I'm still bitter about that, btw.) :)
Just a query, would you be updating Choices next, or Finding Faith? I hope Choices, i'm misding Selene. And also, how pregnant is Selene at the moment?
Update soonish! :D
Your biggest fan,
Author's Response: Who said James and Val are getting married? I don't remember ever saying that ;) Not that I'm saying it won't happen either, though.
There will be more on Val's family later. They definately aren't done. Believe me, I have plans.
Thank you! I was both nervous and excited about the talk with George. It was something I had planned from, like, Chapter 3. I wanted it to be sentimental, but I didn't want to make George too out of character. In my mind, George remained the same loveable jokester we all adore, but with a hidden serious side. I just hope I did it justice.
Val definitely had an eventful Christmas. I'd like to say things are going to slow down for her, but they're not. The end is nigh for this story and some really BIG stuff is about to happen.
Unfortunately, I'm having a bit of writers block with both my stories, so it might be a bit of a wait. However Finding Faith is much closer to being finished, so I'll probably update that one first. And currently in Choices, it's about mid-December, so Selene is about four months along. Don't worry - she and James will make up soon, so then he (and consequently, the readers) will know more about what's going on.
Just a side note, the reason the next chapters are taking so long is because I just got ideas for three more stories. Now I just need time to write them all :/
P.S. I just want to say that you have one of the coolest names I've ever heard.
