norah_hunt: thanks for the review. It's always nice to be called godsent,
especially when one of your nicknames at school is 'fallen angel'. ^^;; As
for Will's 'I live in Asia now'...well, he does live in Asia. And he's
still a juvenile, so he can't legally be living alone, now can he? You have
to wait until next chapter to see what's up.
Elusive Kat: Yay! Someone actually sent in suggestions! Hurrah! Island
countries and their troubles...yup, I think that's where we're headed.
Ashura: I'm always slightly worried whenever I write magic-fics, if I don't
explain it, people will say I'm doing stuff that's impossible. Well, magic
is, strictly speaking, impossible, but you know...And gang's reactions,
coming up next. Um..there will be some slash/yaoi - my first fic with it, I
have a friend who's going to kill me - but not purely slash. ^_^
Winds of Flame: 'Course Merry didn't change. He's been the same for
thousands of years, he's too petrified to bend! And as for your two
options: yup yup, love them too. Although I, in my infinite boredom-during-
class, have come up with several other options...
Will: I'm afraid to ask.
I made you cool here, didn't I?
Will: I've become a cynical jerk!
With mad skilz.
Here are the ages, by the way.
-Merriman: thousands of years old. We're talking seriously
-Simon: eldest of the teens; he's 18, and about to start university
at Oxford. Who's a little genius, then?
-Jane: seventeen years old
-Bran: seventeen years old
-Will: seventeen years old; seeing a pattern here?
-Barney: youngest, at fifteen
Will's gonna live in a big city, by the way. Same reasons as you put;
besides, Will still has the power to cloud peoples' mind. That comes in
mighty handy, lemme tell ya.
Northstar: I'm glad you like Will. I know that the direction I'm taking his
changes could be controversial.
Rachel and Sophie W: I do like Japan, but some stuff about it wouldn't be
conducive for my plotline. On the other hand, maybe if I can carry this
story through to conclusion, we can have them visit Japan and have a whole
bunch of anime x-overs! ^_^
Alana Lee: OoB Will thanks you for not being judgemental. DiR Will says
that his counterpart is commiting overkill. OoB Will gives DiR Will a
raspberry. DiR Will jumps OoB Will. The Wills are now engaged in a
dustcloud-fight. You know, in anime, where heads and stuff pop out...
Sorry, random silliness there. ^_^
And Will, as I've mentioned, is going to be a good ol' city-boy.
Mathais-88: Why is everyone so amazed that I've made Will move? They seem
less surprised when I make him throw fireballs. ;) Well, it's cool when a
plot twists. And thanks!
Cherrylad: Thanks for the comments on the dialogue, I'm rather anxious
about that since I want to make them sound, well, properly British. Not
slangy like Americans, not loose-ish like Asians...you know, something like
what Brits would really say. I hope I carried it off. The fact that you
don't quite agree with where I've put Will (actually, I think it very
unlikely too - I just force that over so I can write ^^;;) but still like
my story enough to read and review (the review part is particularly rare
among ff.net browsers ^_^) is a huge compliment. Thanks. The language of
the spells, by the way, was based on German, though I modified (aka
mangled) a lot of the words so that it isn't any discernible tongue at all.
Gramarye: I'll take the hug, if you please. ;) Sorry if the next chapter
isn't coming out yet...since it's a laying-the-basis type of chapter, I've
been sweating over the details. (sigh) Hope to get it up sooner, though.
Caitie: Aww! I'm on a fave list! (blushes) Thanks!
