So it's turning out to be one of those insomniac nights. It's past 2am now and I'm too wired to sleep. Between what happened to C yesterday and my new Agatha Christie collection, it's easy to see why.

It was hard for me to squee about anything yesterday but there was plenty squee-worthy that came in the mail - 4 Agatha Christie collections, including 3 favourite omnibuses and a collection of shorties I've never read. The last time I read The Man in the Brown Suit, I must have been 13. That's half a lifetime ago! And I finally get to read the full Harlequin collection, not just bits and pieces from random anthologies. Oh and KA, one of the omnibuses has 'The Secret of Chimneys' so we'll have fun going over it together. :p

Well, if you're still up, I just sent you something to read as well. :p

Wow! I just finished reading it. What a ride, eh? And nice resolution to that little problem that bugged me about the twins.

As to your question about splits, I think a nice break will be either just before or just after the scene about vultures waiting for meat.

I'll give more detailed feedback in the morning but as a preview, I think that chapter was superb!

Wow! You were up late! I hope you got some rest finally.

You wish. I'm still ticking at 3pm. That's exactly 13 hours after I woke up this morning. And between my classes after work today, and my determination to get the 1st draft of TF up before nightfall, I'll probably be clocking in quite late.

I just hope I don't wake up as early.

P.S. I never did get round to giving you that review, did I? I thought I'd have time in the office but I've been kept busy both with and without work. ::sad face:: Do you want something really detailed or just a general 'feel/like' commentary?

Dang!

No rush! You said you wanted to see it - so now you've seen it. :p If there's something glaring and awful, e-mail me. Of course if you want to review it, I won't stop you - but get some sleep first!

BTW - what this 'Anabasis' thing?

LOL! You're such a dear.

BTW - what this 'Anabasis' thing?

Fialleril's squee-worthy AU fanfic that involves Anakin-who-was-Vader and Dooku. It's really good. I read it in one sitting here but I think you can also find it on her lj.

Plugging here but since you asked :p - all Fialleril's works are very squee-worthy and you know I don't say that lightly. Our Lady of the Fallen is probably a one-of-its kind.

Oooh! Thanks for the tip!

Cheers for good books. :D Happy reading dear!

Thanks! I saw your review replies. Can I just say once again that I'm so glad you're you. Your statement of Obi-Wan not being strong enough to question what he's been taught rings so true with my perception of him that it's uncanny.


Which is why I'm looking forward to the next chapter of Anabasis. ;)

Are you sure we're not twins separated at birth? LOL.

Oh, Anabasis!Obi-Wan has even more issues than canon!Obi-Wan. *grins evilly*

As to the actual next chapter: it's coming. Eventually. Actually, I'm working on it now. :)

Perhaps I'm your American clone. :D Only not quite as dark. Er, most of the time.

Do you get dry & scratchy eyes from lack of sleep?

Not always. ::Thinks hard:: Mostly, I feel the effect during the day when I get tired and make stupid mistakes...
