Gosh, is it? Thank you! I have honestly been worrying about how miserable it's been and it's made everything seem so stale in my mind, but since posting the last update I feel revitalised and ready to tackle the last furlong or so :)

On that note:

A new drabble from me - just a short thing, two or three chapters at most.

The Cricket Match
Joey Bettany is bored, and Jack Maynard comes up with a plan to cheer her up.
Set during the second summer holiday at Tiernsee.

Chapter 1:
LGM
SDL

Madge Bettany: Headmistress is finally back and being posted in LGM and SDL concurrently. 25000 words and almost all completely written so should have the whole thing posted by the end of March depending on how big I make the posts

Uh…well, I wrote a whole segment of it last week! (You'll like it, ivohenry). But not much more than that. Once I've moved house (some time in the next month or so) and have got into a new routine, I suspect I shall have more writing time, and then we can finally put this baby to bed!

Thanks for asking, though :)

A very silly one-off drabble inspired by the CS characters presenting TV shows thread:

The Joey Maynard Show, or Jo to the Rescue, An Alternative

More T&M, hopefully with fewer continuity errors this time! (Finn-isms?)

LGM
SDL

(Sorry about the double spacing in the SDL version - I think it might be something to do with the fact that I'm using Safari, but however hard I try, I am unable to tidy it up. Next week I'll post via Firefox and see if that makes a difference.)

A couple of new things up on the SDL:

Helena Wilson's War: Not every war has an external enemy. Sometimes the greatest battle comes from within, and the mistakes we make in our youth may haunt us for the rest of our lives. (Aka, Nell struggles with the long-term impact of her troubled past.)

And in case the above is a little angsty for your tastes, I also have a short Swiss-era parody, Irregular Correspondence, wherein Joey expresses dissatisfaction with the letters she is receiving, and Hilda suggests they swap for a week.


Further to this, I'm currently working on the next chapter of The Chalet School and Hilda, which I hope to have posted by the end of the week. Apologies for the long delay!

New Drabble ! Been a long time since I've had any plot bunnies, let alone ones as prolific as these ones have been.

Published on SDL under the Tom ID, as the Beecharmer one just has too many universes and unfinished stories. Planning on updating approx weekly if I can.

No specific need to read the other Tom stories, but is a later point in the same world, for any fans of Hilda & Nell - Beginnings or my Tom & Bride story.

This new one isn't specifically slash though, it's to be mainly Madge, Hilda and Nell dealing with retirement with a mixture of cameos of other characters all 30 years on from Coming of Age. So Kathy Ferrars is approx 52, Nancy Wilmot about 63 ish. Madge 75, Joey 62/63, the triplets are 42/43, to give some reference points as to ages.

http://www.sallydennylibrary.co.uk/brow ... ype=recent

Will put a link to LGM once I've managed to get it copied and posted there.
