I'm really impressed with your story, especially if this really was your first try at writing a fan fiction. Your story is the kind of intelligent writing that we should have been getting from the VL writers but didn't. You've filled in a lot of details that should have been covered in their story and I can really appreciate that. Thank you for writing this. I hope you write some more. You definitely have the talent.
Thank you for the kind words, JeriLA. Your appraisal means a lot. This was indeed my first attempt at writing a fan fiction. I hadn't even planned to post it, but a couple of friends encouraged me to do it. I might eventually consider writing a sequel to this story, but I'd have to come up with some kind of plot to carry it forward. I don't consider myself a particularly imaginative person. Anyway, I'm happy you like this one.
