This is fantastic! All the kids now have perfect prequel backstories that deepen the events of the series.

Interesting story about the Young Ones and their lives before they arrived in the Realm. Eric and his relationship with his Father were hinted at in the series. Eric's 'friend' making racist cracks about Diana! Yesh! At least her friends stuck up for her. Sheila protecting her brother after the death of their Mom is just so Sheila! I really enjoyed reading about their lives just before that fateful Dungeons & Dragons ride.

Wow! This story is amazing! I know you haven't touched it in a while, but if possible could you continue? If not that's fine. Just wanted to say what a great story I thought it was!

Hi Daniel,

I am really enjoying the story so far. There are loads of things to like about it, your description of American school life sounds about right to me (but then, I’m British!) and the interaction if the kids pre-realm was very natural and believable (with one tiny exception- see below). I found the ending in particular very affecting, you wrote is so well, that the reader ends up feeling so sorry for the poor boy.

In fact, I think I liked it too much. the way you write Eric makes him sound a lot more mature and well-adjusted than he is at the start of the series. I don't think that his concept of "friendship" is really that well developed. When he's dropped into the Realm, he still sees people as thinks for his own advancement in life rather that entities in their own right. Only by the last season is he beginning to get a grip on what it means to have true friends, and writing him so well at the start means there’s less opportunity for his character to develop as your story progresses.

There are a couple of minor niggles, but I still liked this story, and I'm very interested to know what's going to happen next. (Ponders for a short while - Perhaps they get transported to the Realm!) Update soon.
