GOAT PHOBIA. I FORGOT ABOUT THE GOAT PHOBIA. *DEAD*
Oh yeah. Gotta keep up the theme. ;D
BTW, I just realized that the review in which I discovered that you were the one I had to thank for recommending this as the new Featured Story was actually for AAWK, so my readers over here may not have seen it. And I was so brain dead from watching the most recent Glee that I forgot to thank you in my End Notes. So I've gone back and rectified that. 'Cause THANK YOU!

I didn't notice ANY of that until you just pointed it out!!! but now it's obvious-Ryan OBVIOUSLY reads this. Which mean he will be writing a Starkid episode, and talking to D and C about reading this for an audion book. S'gonna happen :)
And Figgins in a dress...sorry for the imagery but I nearly died laughing!
So you've joined the dark side?! You have a tumble now?! If you do, I feel like I should apologise...and at the same time ask why you haven't added me if you are clearly stalking my blog.... :D
No, no, no - I haven't joined the dark side. I'm not personally on Tumblr (or Facebook, or any other social media sites). I've simply bookmarked your blog, and am now obsessively checking it every few minutes to see if you've posted anything new that I just have to stare at or read or giggle about or drool over. Which, as I had feared, takes an inordinate amount of time away from my writing (as well as all of my other, offline, activities). Not that I'm complaining, mind you... ;D

One day. One day I will send you a link to a video you haven't seen yet.... :D I feel between us we may have seen every clip in existance. BUT if I get one from you I have never seen, I will tell you-and I will continue in my search to find one for you... :D How about THIS one? Makes me go all tingly and the hair on my arms stands up ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTszm-LHoEU
And the clues...There is a poem by Ed Zap called Dream # 10141894. When I googled the title of this chapter, this chapter came up. NOT helpful, Google...:D There is a poem by E.E Cummings called This is a rubbish of human rind. BUT I can't figure out the fecking connection. Or even if I'm just randomly googling and picking the first thing I see. This is highly possible... Dammit...:D
Well, of course I've seen that one, but it's SO worth watching again. And again. And again. Oh, wait, I have to stop watching that if I'm going to finish responding to you. ;D
And yes, it's the E. E. Cummings poem. (The # is his birth date.) You obviously didn't actually READ it, or you would have noticed the line about "where the young bell tolled and the old vine twined." ;) It's actually not one of my favorites, but it popped into my head when I was thinking about the vines in the Thornbush Pit, and how people used it as a rubbish dump, so I decided to be pretentious and use an obscure line of poetry for my title. ;P
So, just for fun, this one IS one of my favorites by E. E. Cummings:
somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near
your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose
or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully ,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;
nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing
(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands
P.S. You were close enough to get Ginny that pedicure.
And it's a good thing, too, 'cause her claws were starting to scratch up my floors. ;D

Ok, cheating and "reviewing" so I can reply...I was hoping the cat lady was a nod in my direction, but I would never flatter myself that much :) You have no idea how smiley I am knowing that it was aimed at little old me :):)
And gaaaaaaaaaaaaah :( I'm having issues with the updates. It's started, which is progress. I just can't get in the right head space and don't want to put out something crappy! BUT it's started and will be ready soon. I hope....!! :(
Well, first off - whoohoo! - more reviews! Like I'm gonna complain... ;)
And of course the cat lady was a nod in your direction. :D
As for your updates, I hope you know that I'm just teasing you with all of my grumbling about waiting. Yes, I am eagerly anticipating the next chapter, but that's only because of the quality of your writing. Which I would hate to have suffer because you felt rushed into putting something out before you're ready. So let the creative process flow at whatever pace works for you. I'll still be here. <3

Hoorah for new stuff! I saw on my lunch break at work that this had been updated but was too scared to read it after last time...:D
So worth the wait though! I love Santana as the huntsmans daughter, but was a teeny bit dissapointed cos that's who I was guessing for snow white! The whole
"slightly more tanned" thing...I have a second guess up my sleeve so will have to wait and see!
I downloaded the audio book FINALLY, and I can officially say I am a 28 year old who listens to a fairy tale on the walk to and from work. And I just can't seem to care. I've just reached this exact part in the book, and all I can say is if the Huntsmans daughter busts in while they are looking for the basket, I'm gonna have to get you to start posting spoiler alerts...:D
I'm so glad you finally got Chris's book. And I apologize for the spoilers. I actually just went back and added a warning to my story notes, in case anyone else out there hasn't had the pleasure of reading the original yet. Because, really, this whole story is nothing but slightly twisted spoiler after slightly more twisted spoiler.
And I can one-up you in the "I don't care that I'm not acting my age" department. I let Chris read me a fairy tale bedtime story every night before I go to sleep. :D
LOL that you're now afraid to read anything I've written while you're at work. I promise that this one is not going to get anywhere nearly as explicit as my others. But I guess it's better to err on the side of caution... ;)

Suprise, huh? ;)
I needed to write another just to answer that, cuz Honestly? I did actually scream!
And I was gonna comment, but I just totally forget because of the Klaine drama! D:
Most of the time, I go down in the middle of the chapter just to put that in the review already, but I was too busy imagining it all ;))
Research purposes? Really? ;)))
LOL! No, I'm not surprised at all that you did actually scream. In fact, I think I may have heard you...
And yes, my repeated watchings of Not the Boy Next Door were strictly for research. I mean, otherwise, how was I supposed to describe the shimmying of his shoulders or the swiveling of his hips or the unbelievably high kicks that boy can do? And if I've continued to replay that scene over and over even after I finished the chapter, it's only because I may need to go back later and write some revisions. Sometimes, an author has to suffer for her craft... ;)

I don't know what the dove means...but I have a feeling I really need to read the series!! Love Rachel as Red, I could really picture her getting angry at Blaine being all distracted. Are you going to be posting weekly from now? Or is it as and when? Loving the regular updates :)
Yes, you really do need to read this series. And get the audio book while you're at it - Chris reads it himself, and he does a great job with all of the voices.
I don't have a set schedule for updates. Basically, I post as often as I finish a chapter, which seems to be about twice a week at this point. I'm so addicted to reviews that once I write something, I want feedback immediately. I don't really follow the agreed-upon writing process. I spend weeks prewriting a story in my head, and then once I start to actually write it, you're basically getting a first draft. I don't have a beta reader, and I just do minor revisions and editing as I go along. I like to think I have a reasonably good grasp of the English language, but if you find any errors they're probably there because as I was proofreading I read what I meant to say rather than what I actually wrote. Anyway, the short (and self-serving) answer to your question is that the more reviews I get, the faster I update. ;)

I think I may be onto the evil queen...snow white is still just a guess...is she maybe slightly more tanned than snow white?! lol, I'm probably way wrong :D and I also love Matt Bomer-I think most people who read the stories on this site would get the reference! :D
Well, I don't want to be too spoilery, but you should know that great minds do think alike. ;D

Woooaaah, I'm sorry it took me this long!
Since you send me the link on Ask, (I seriously still don't know why I didn't get an email in the first place) I wanted to read it, and everytime I fucking started something happened that I couldn't read anymore, and then I always kinda forgot...
Stupid, stupid, stupid!
Anyways, I read the first chapter now, and I love it already (suprise, huh? ;))
Heheheh, Kurt Hummelocks, I can't wait!
Better gonna read the rest now, I missed ya though!!
Yea!!! You found me!!! I'm bouncing around with glee! :D
Please stop banging your pretty little head against the wall. It can't be good for you, and it's making me motion sick. ;)

I love this story, and can't wait to see more! :)
(Is it Cory by any chance? I mean Froggy)
Thanks!!! I'm so glad to see familiar reviewers from my last story are enjoying this one as well.
(You're close, but not quite...)

I loveddddd it. You have no idea how tired I am of the unoriginal stuff I normally find. I really hope you continue it.
Thanks so much! I've been working on Chapter 2, and I hope to get it posted soon. :)
Date: January 11, 2014 03:07 pm Title: Chapter 1 - Into the Laptop
Yes please! :)
I was curious as to who would be kind enough to leave two reviews on my first chapter, so I clicked on your name. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised to discover that you're an author, as well.
I'm off to read your story, now. I'll be sure to leave a review. :)
Date: January 10, 2014 11:31 pm Title: Chapter 1 - Into the Laptop
Ooh...I'm intrigued! Looking forward to reading the next installment :)
Yea! My first review for this story - thanks so much!
I guess I'd better get to work on Chapter 2...
