Darren is scared of goats. I'm done. That is by far the cutest fucking phobia I have ever heard of. PLEASE tell me this comes from a past experience?! Cos that's a story I'd pay to hear...
And Chris being all gorgeous when Darren danced with him-too many feelings for a monday afternoon!!
And yay for Tina, Mike and Artie showing up! There's not that many to go now, and I still have bets on the evil queen.... ;)
I haven't had a chance to start re-reading White Knight yet-I haven't even had a chance to start penning the next chapter of NJAMM, but when I do...I will review like my life depends on it. I WANTS THAT GUINEA PIG. Even just for the image of it sitting in the first class lounge before sipping champagne on board it's flight to little old me :D Luxury piggie transportation...I imagine it to look more like this http://www.eclectech.co.uk/ when it arrives... :D (Far right, obviously...!)
PLEASE don't wait to finish this before the reprise! MULTI TASK DAMMIT! :D But keep writing this, cos it's my happy place :) I've just realised there are way too many smilies in this and I'm burning my dinner, so I'm gonna go......:) (just one more for luck)...
I'm so glad you enjoyed Darren's goat phobia. I cracked myself up writing that scene. Not really sure where it came from (somewhere deep within the twisted recesses of my mind, no doubt) since I, personally, have only ever had positive experiences with petting zoo goats. But somehow I could just picture a tiny (well, even tinier) little Darren, with that mop of curls and those big eyes, and that Darrenesque tendency to view the world in shades of pink, suddenly having his feeling of utter rightness in the universe shattered by this inconceivable horror. And how indignant he must have been when all of the other animals just stood there watching, instead of rushing to his rescue...
Next chapter should confirm your predictions about the Evil Queen, and maybe Snow White, as well, if you've figured out my sense of humor by now. ;)
I'm so excited that you're going to re-read and review AAWK! :D I've got your guinea pig on standby. I bought it a little top hat, as you suggested, but I'm not allowing it to smoke any cigars, since I want it to live long enough to make it to New Zealand. ;D
Oh, and I wish I could indulge you by starting my reprise before I finish this, but unfortunately I'm not a good multi-tasker when it comes to writing. Especially since the reprise will be written from Darren's POV, and he's a different person, with different life experiences, than the Darren in this story. So I don't think I could get the voice right if I was switching back and forth; I'm just not that talented. But it should only take me another month or so to wrap this up, and then I'll have to re-read AAWK myself, and then, finally, I'll start writing.
Meanwhile, I'm eagerly awaiting the next chapter of your story! :D 'Cause on this side of the world, it IS just another Monday morning...

I got 2 mails, thinking you uploaded twice...... :c
But I loved this! I hoped Darren would cuddle up to Chris in the cart, but I'm sure that'll come in further chapters ;3
LOVED the 'Wake Me Up-' scene, like, how do you come up with this stuff?
"Wake me up.... WAKE. ME. UP" the title literally fits the damn situation!
(Also the part where Darren sings to Chris..... *swoons*)
And about that reprise, please, please, PLEASE write it! You know how that story is my absolute favorite, and like, reading the same, but different at the same time would just be the best! *________*
I'm sure many people think the same!
Sorry about the double notification. I actually did upload this same chapter twice, 'cause the formatting was off. It put the first couple of lines in bold, so I deleted it and tried again, but the same thing happened. Oh well - the words are the same, whatever the font.
Glad you enjoyed "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go." I've had that song stuck in my head ever since I started writing this chapter. Did you read where Darren said recently that it was his favorite performance on Glee? And also, he really did say the line about not believing in "guilty pleasures" 'cause if you enjoy something you shouldn't feel guilty about it. So most of my best lines, I steal from either Darren or Chris. ;)
Actually, before I even started writing this story I sat down and made a list of all who all of the characters would be, and all of the songs I wanted to use. We've still got a few good ones coming up. :D
As for the reprise, I have to finish this story first, but I really do feel drawn to write it. 'Cause As a White Knight on His Steed is my favorite story, too. I just fell in love with who Chris and Darren are in it. And the original is written in the third person, but it's really all Chris's POV. So I'm kind of curious to explore how Darren would tell that same story. Once this fairy tale is finished, you'll have to remind me to work on that next. :D
