Thank you - I definately labored over Cecil's tone, trying to whip it into something non-Bobbish. 

Thanks so much!  Perhaps I will extend it a tad :)

I guess a radical solution would be to make it two separate stories (with a lot of editing and addition, of course): one about Lisa's decision to go to Italy on her scholarship, another about Cecil's plot. Sometimes you have to do these things...

This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.

Hmm, it might work in a sepparate-but-connected way - maybe one in sequel to the other?  *ponders*

You know that better than I. It's an interesting idea, for sure.

Thinking aloud makes it easier for people like me to steal your ideas to follow your train of thought... right? [size=60]Darn, so many stories I need to catch up on...[/small]

Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.

Heh, who cares about that? You're discussing your story, after all, not the weather in Somalia. And it's not like this section gets an overwhelming amount of traffic anyway...

@Graham - HEH!  At this point my ideas are fair game, I have too many to juggle efficently  :P


Thanks, Chris!
