    Poor Mom. We fans torment her almost as much as she torments her characters

    Chapter 26

    Watching Declan puzzle through what happened the last time he was in Bailey's room and figuring it all out was heartbreaking. It's clear he cares deeply about Bailey, and he wants to do what is best for him. I was surprised at how mature Declan's response was. I know that he's been established as a smart guy and not a stereotypical jock, but its difficult to imagine that he would be able to recover that quickly and avoid having an overtly emotional response when Bailey returned to his room. My heart breaks for Bailey who has to continually face up to his own demons about living up to his father's expectations. Without realizing it, Bailey's mother is making the situation worse every time she talks about how his father would want things a certain way for Bailey. Very good chapter, looking forward to the next one. Hope it comes soon!

    I just keep going...

    Form is not so bad. Wish my trailing foot was pointed straight back instead of off to the side (for balance and to prevent drifting), but its not awful. Consistent, so that's the important thing. At the time I was not saying a single thing. I was focused on fixing part of my delivery. Can't see it here, but I was trying to fix something going on with my wrist and fingers when I let the rock go. Thank you!

    My first speech as a board member for the You Can Play Project!

    For the record, I have no idea what is going on with my eyebrow. It's just off doings its own thing.

    Chapter 25

    Always good to have another chapter of one of my favourite stories. That was an interesting and important insight Declan had about his and Daniel's role within the McIntyre family right now. Hopefully Declan keeps that in mind as he develops his feelings for Bailey and they see where their relationship goes from here. You really fleshed out Bailey's mother in this chapter, even though she only appeared briefly in a couple of scenes. Her character feels more real now, as opposed to the small glimpses of her that we'd seen previously. She feels more authentic and real now that we can see that she does see what her son is going through, and that she is genuinely conflicted with all of the feelings going on in her own mind.
  9. I can tell which of my students are native speakers and which students are English Second Language based entirely on what mistakes they make while they're butchering the language.

  10. WINNER! Completely in shock to have been awarded a graduate scholarship.

      Thank you all! This is astonishing, seeing as though I did not believe I would be eligible for the scholarship based on my being a UNBC Senator.

      To clarify my response, the university Senate committee on scholarships and bursaries makes the final decision on scholarship winners, and while I don't sit on that committee and would have recused myself if I had been, it does present the appearance of a conflict of interest. In the interest of transparency, I would like to note that I did not vote on the final decision to come forward to the full Senate, and that I didn't actually read the list of scholarship winners, both because I felt the optics would be bad, and because I don't know how to find that information in the Senate archives ^_^

    I shall think about it! That might be a project for the new season, and that's all I'll say.
  13. Just submitted Extra Innings to a publisher. Fingers crossed that it goes better than my thesis submissions do! :P

  14. I see that this wonderful story hasn't received a thread yet. Let the discussion begin. We keep talking about the fact that Declan is eventually going to figure out what Bailey's been doing, but its interesting to note that he's had a few opportunities to ask about it now, and he's chosen not to. I think that Declan already knows what's going on, and he doesn't want to make it more real by talking about it. It's not in his normal character, but I think we've seen that when Bailey's involved that Declan doesn't act in ways he normally acts.

    I agree, the role reversal was a nice touch. It obviously doesn't always happen in the real world, but its important to have balance in a relationship. The fact that Bailey seems more comfortable with himself in an area that we might not expect is a nice piece of literary irony as well.
