Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr - just did a rather long and indepth reply, got called away to the phone and when i got back i was timed out before i got chance to post it!!! And now i don't have the inclination to write it all again!
Maybe i'll try again tomorrow.
So for now i just want to say how relieved i am that you enjoyed the story, and that you all seem to "get" what i was trying to achieve.
I did have a long and boring list of the things that tickled me when i was writing this, and the parallels between J & R now and then, and how much this just sings to the hopeless romantic that inhabits my soul, but it was probably a load of self indulgence and that's why the gods deemed that it should disappear without being posted.
Suffice to say, there ARE lots of little things that do make me smile about this story and maybe i'll discuss them tomorrow. I was surprised at how this turned out though, and for most of the time it felt like someone else was writing it, because i swear that the ideas in it are not all mine.
But anyhow, now they've just got back from their honeymoon, can i skip the whole wedding thing??? I was thinking that i could just continue the story from here!!
