Hi, Favourite chapters have been this one, and the first one, that are just so well written I have very little to say! you noted in your author's note that now we knew Astoria's secret, but in reality we knew it in the last chapter. We already knew she had been the leak, we already knew it would be something about Epping forest, this chapter just filled in the details.
And I loved the way it did, a really really well written chapter!

Awesome! Nothing constructive about the writing itself at all, i jsut loved it and want to read more!

I'm going to raise a formatting point though, and this are nothing to do with your writing.
You just use a double dash a lot, even in your responses to your reviews. How-- I mean what-- is it supposed to indicate? Is it the same as just a single dash?

I don't even know if it is wrong, it just struck me and I thought I should ask whether it had any special significance.

Overall loved the chapter! Thank-you, and hurry and keep updating!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! Your reviews are so sweet and thorough--I really appreciate your taking the time out to write them!!!

As far as formatting...wait, look, I just did the double-dash thing up above, and I didn't even realize it! I'd never really thought of it being distracting. Is it that I use dashes too much, or just that you haven't seen two of them together before? It's really the same thing as this - they aren't different at all. I just never liked the dash with a space on both sides so much, and using a single one-,like that, looks like a hyphenated word. The double dash is just a way of doing the long dash, like in books. Except to do that, you would have to Insert Symbol every time, which takes *forever*. It's something some people do, while others prefer a single dash with spaces. Totally based on your preference, but it has no special meaning :)

However, if I'm abusing the dash, I can make an effort to stop. I can't guarantee success; it's my writerly addiction. However, in my quest to be a better writer, I can make an effort :D

So glad you enjoyed this chapter! I was quite fond of it. Hopefully I can update soon. I have a very long plane ride in a few days, so hopefully if I haven't finished chapter four by then, I'll have a good many hours of no internet staring me in the face as an incentive to finish it up! Till then, packing may be occupying a bit of time, but I have the plane as a good potential writing time to lean back on.

Thanks again!
