- aW... this story makes me sad.
(Starts to bawltakes tissue from Neil as he comforts her) It makes me reallly sad.
Hey do you know if there will be another season to CotT?
(starts to bawl as she reads it again)
Author's responseThanks :) As for a second season, yep, the director confirmed it over at TV.com a few weeks ago. The episodes won't be aired until 2007, but at least one will apparently involve Neil meeting an Adonis of sorts.
- That was incredibly moving. I especially liked the one about Odie, since it started and ended differently, and they all fit so well...
The bit with Theresa at the end was a nice touch, too, but what happened to Atlanta?
Author's responseThanks :) Good to hear that it did have some emotional impact in the end and that you liked how Odie's part was a bit different in terms of structure. As for Atlanta, I really don't know actually. I believe I tried to think of some sort of ending for her, but decided to go with 'the women survive and the guys die' theme, so I suppose you could always assume she manages to move on and live normally? Good call though :)
- What happened to Neil, and Atlanta? So sad though.
Author's responseThanks! As for what happened to Neil and Atlanta -- well, it's meant to be open-ended, so it's really up to you to assume what you think happened to them ;) That, or maybe I'm just trying to think of a clever way to say 'I don't know'? It's your call :D
(#) Dana 2006-07-23 10:59:14 AMit's so sad.i don't understand why they all died.so confusing.
Author's responseThank you. As for why they all died -- well, the simplest explanation is that I felt like writing a 'Rocks fall, everyone dies!' story, and heroes always come to bad ends in Greek mythology, so why exempt these ones?
(#) 25 cents 2006-09-10 07:52:08 PMYOU KILLED EVERYONE!!!!! sobs loudly how could you have killed my archie-kins and my other favorite guys and NOT NEIL!!!! wahh!! i miss archie (and jay) but besides it was a moving story and good job
Author's responseThanks! And well, Neil was supposed to be offed as well, but I couldn't get his story to fit in with the rest, so I had to remove it. But, someone else on FicWad wrote a fanfic based on this one that was entirely about Neil and it's quite good, so if you can find it, go and read it :)
- YOU KILLED THEM! killed them all some their bodyies were killed some their souls were killed.Starts to cryWhat about Neil if Archie has to die then so dose Neil which reminds me YOU KILLED ARCHIE! what about pure Atlanta and her brocken hreat!This is not supposed to be a bad review but it just made me so sad!Crys harder
Author's responseWell, I'm glad the story had the emotional intent I was going for :) For the record, Neil does kind of die, but it's offscreen -- like I mentioned multiple times already, I couldn't get his section to fit with the other vignettes, and including his would have dragged the story on for too long. And, er, I don't know about Atlanta. I didn't really have much to say about her for this story, but if you would like to write a sequel or something, go ahead. Just let me know so I can read it.
- What about Neil?!? Everyone thinks Theresa is the best!!!!!!!!!
Author's responseLike I mentioned in, I think, both the story and responses to other people, I couldn't fit his section in without ruining the flow of the story. And Theresa is the central anchor point of the story because of her psychic ability, not because I think she's the best.
(#) Sparkles 2006-10-30 01:03:32 PMWow that was a really sad story.I didn't thinkyou were into stuff like that.It was really god though.Very very sad It almost made me cry.Keep up the good work xanthophliliac I look forward to reading more stories from you.
Author's responseThanks! And actually, I'm usually not into this kind of stuff -- I prefer to write lighting stuff, but I couldn't really pass-up a chance to combine two academic fields I'm in a bit :)
