  1. As I often heard growing up: no good deed goes unpunished. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the punishment is not too onerous. Great chapter, @astone2292 — & I hope we get to see more of Stacy’s development as a human who now knows about the supernatural world. Hold onto her, Dave!

    Chapter 37

    We’ll, I think we can rule out Timor since Essell would have recognized his scent. As for the emotional rollercoaster, I think it’s not surprising considering all that has happened—even if he brought most of it upon himself—& the way his hormones must be going crazy with all the physical changes. Thanks @Cia for bringing Bouncer back into the picture!
  3. Everyone deals with the death of loved ones differently, but at Ethan’s age the challenge of multiple losses is indeed a reason for concern. Knowing his grandmother is a witch, I hope she might provide some special solace along with her love and his father’s deep, abiding love. Maybe his struggles will give him strength and opportunities to come out to them. This story keeps getting better, @StoryMyke!
  4. I second @Valkyrie’s sentiments: I have never read a one of Graeme’s stories that I didn’t like!

    Paperwork

    I'm glad that Cassiel is taking Kassil's advice about The Bleaching seriously, because Theofrid is certainly not going to volunteer anything in the near future. I think they could make a good couple if Theofrid can get over his insecurities with regards to Cassiel.
  6. I very much enjoyed Evan’s growing sense of family and learning new aspects of the characters. The transition from the previous chapter was quite abrupt, however, almost jarring and definitely disconcerting for me — as if there was a chapter missing. Perhaps in the finished story the arc of these chapters will feel less jarring, but you might want to consider something to connect the two chapters more. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing where they are going and why. Cheers, @StoryMyke!

    What an apt metaphor: the impromptu race from Eagle Lake to Chicago in an old van without air conditioning was a wonderful parallel to Rick's growth in moving past his insecurities towards his future -- an unknown future perhaps, but nonetheless his, not Heinrich's nor Rita's nor anyone else's, except possibly one to be shared ultimately with Gus. Then to close with, "“Somebody call a plumber?” He grinned." Sheer genius, in all its many layers! It was the perfect comic relief after the tension that had been ratcheting up since the end of the last chapter -- and will certainly help ge

    Chapter 35

    And now a warning??!! (Thanks to Meryl Streep in "Death Becomes Her.") I hope it was just the natural caution of a scientist-doctor in a new situation, but knowing @Cia, there will be more to it. At least my two-day delay in reading means I have two days less before the next chapter...

    Chapter 35

    I agree with @drpaladin's initial comments/observation and also with "Maybe." I was reasonably certain that he had blushed before, so I lean toward something else being the change in color.

    Chapter 5

    For me, Ryan’s avoidance of answering his sister’s question was because he is still sorting things out in his own head. If he were clearer about his feelings or closer to sister or more open about his emotions in general, then it might’ve been odd —but not at the moment and to his family. Just my thoughts...

    Chapter 25

    What about tying him down with silver chains and letting all the prey species take bites out of him. Not sure where that thought came from. I’m rarely a violent person, but sociopaths/psychopaths do tend to bring it out.

    Only if Rita is included in the locked room. Zoltan might even be enough of a classist prig to shutdown Rita verbally, although I would probably bet on Rita when the interactions get physical. Meanwhile, I predict Heinrich Sr. would be trampled by the other two. They are all bullies, but he is ONLY a bully--and arrogant--without the educated smarts of the other two. By the way, can you throw away the key after locking them in the room?

    It’s amazing how being with the right person makes the big problems more manageable and the good times more magnificent. Now to deal with ICE.

    That “angry” emoji was for the situation, one that happens WAY too often.
  15. Welcome, @headtransplant. Grab some muchies and one or more favorite beverages because you have a wild and wonderful ride ahead of you! I've been reading here for more than a decade, and I still am behind in all that I want to read and even further behind on all the comments and reviews I want to make. Enjoy!
