...almost. 93 reviews! That's baffling but brilliant considering I only wrote these things for my friends and never even considered the idea that anybody else would ever read them. I think I underestimated the size of the internet ;)

I feel like I should mark it somehow when this thing hits 100 reviews, but not sure what to do. Maaaybe post a chapter from one of the prequels or something, I don't know, or the front covers. I've been picking at prequels for both Pip and Lindsay for ages but they're going so slowly it's a bit ridiculous. I've kind of abandoned Lindsay's for now so I can concentrate on just the one, so hopefully that'll help move things along (plus I find it so much easier to write Pip's voice and pov anyway).

Typing "ridiculous" up there reminded me: I use OpenOffice Writer and there's a sort of predictive text thing that fills in long/unusual words as you type, but quite often it gets it wrong... like when I try to type Richard Rider and the program helpfully suggests Richard Ridiculous. THANKS, OPENOFFICE. THANKS A LOT.

Dani Alexander haha might want to change to LibreOffice, since OpenOffice is no longer supported by updates. It's a better platform and written by teh same guy who wrote OpenOffice.

In other news, I'm surprised it's only 100 reviews. I just love this story and rec it every chance I get. <3

(Though I will still admit to not reading the second book and skipping onto the third!)

Jenn Dani, whaaaaaaa????? Omfg, the second one is beautiful!!! You see them go through so much separately but yet both mature. They are ok, but realize better as a unit. Read it!

And congrats on the reviews!! I still haven't reviewed either bc I'm not quite sure what to say lol.

Richard Rider Dani: Thanks for the tip! I'm a major dunce about computers, I just use whatever came pre-installed because faffing about downloading things just makes me nervous.

And thanks for the cheerleading, I'm honestly thrilled that people are having as much fun with it as I am! I feel like slightly less of an obsessed creep churning out so much of this stuff if other people are interested too... The second book was GLORIOUS to write, just because I'm a sucker for big dramatic cheesy Hollywood reunions of ~parted lovers~ and I've never had such a good opportunity to indulge it before. ;) Glad the third still made sense without it!

Haha I know, Jenn, but I'm a wuss. I can't stand them apart for so long. I read this so long ago and all I remember doing was this face >8( when they split up. I do like the new Pip though =) and the new Lindsay. Richard has a way with character development that I just adore, but I literally had so much heartbreak when I started reading book 2 that I skipped it after a bit and went directly to 3.

One day I'll read the 2nd book heh esp because they NEEDED that separation. Just not ready (even after all this time).

Richard Rider Jenn: thank you! I'm just chuffed you like the characters. :) I feel weird and slightly stalky hovering over reviews so I've not read a lot of them, I just noticed the total was close to 100 and my brain went all WHAT???!!

Stalk me any day *brow waggle*. TBH I give a lot of leeway to writers who publish for free online. I expect they get their compensation through reviews, not monetarily. Thus I'm much happier when they read my reviews.

Hope you do =D Otherwise I'll just continue with blinders and pretend I don't see that unfinished awesomeness on my TBR pile!

John Fuller Haha you know what I'm calling you from now on? ;)

Looking forward to the prequels!
