Oh boy, I really hope he's okay! I don't think she shoved it at him THAT hard, but ya never know...

That IS kind of strange. It is not like Roarke to nap so long, nor for Leslie to lose track of time. She might have to wake him, or go look in the t.t. room for Kalora...

Good, Roarke feels better. I hope everything is fine with the Wundermann fantasy, as well as Kalora's-and Roarke himself.

So, that's what was up with Feemstra.

Holy cow, he proposed?

WHOA! They married, and had kids? Definitely an AU!

Cool! She had dinner with Darius! And he's going to take some vacation time to see where that goes... COOL! I just don't want him to leave the island, permanently (though you may wish to have him leave...)

Wow. what plans for the next tale! I can't wait! Reminiscing...a huge birthday...lots of family coming...many MANY others... wonder who else might show up? Cupid, or Eros? Helen? Tattoo's kids? Janine? LOL no, j/k ... This was a great story, and MORE than worth the wait, believe me!

Yay, Darius! Oh, shoot, too bad his relationship with Paloma fizzled. But at least he's got sports to talk with Brian and Nick.

Say...that's a good idea, Christian! Maybe Darius and Kalora would hit it off together...hmm...

Rats...I hope Grady's okay...is this foreshadowing something?

Hehheh, yes, I bet Darius and Christian could swap some good service stories.

So Grady served in the Navy, eh? Cool. More good story swaps there...

That's a good idea. Grady could use a vacation, he works awfully hard. And Roarke could use one too (hint hint, lol).

Cool! Maybe, just maybe, Darius and Kalora could connect now... What a cool idea!

Hehehehe! Love the way they got up for seconds to give Darius and Kalora some space... good dialogue, and then segue into great sports discussion... go Pats, Niners, and Seahawks! Woohoo! ROFL! I sure would love to chat with these guys...they are really cool.

Hahahah...yes, Sox forever! Great dialog... Oh, wait, FIFTIETH birthday party? Wow, that is going to be a humdinger of an event...and one awesome story! Can't wait to see it! (double hint, hint!)

Hmmm. Kalora and the prom? Should be interesting...

Heheheh... Feebster! lol... Good setup and description here...

Hahahahha! Good comeback, indeed! Hope he turns out to be okay and not a jerk... I am guessing that anything that is getting changed in the fantasy interludes are probably taking place in a parallel universe, of course. (You know how much I love those...lol)

Oh, rats! Stood up...poor girl... stupid Feebster! Now, I wonder how that fantasy at 25...

OMG! Is Roarke okay?

Can't wait for the next chapter! This one was great!

That's a great deal for Haruko, and for the marine biologist herself. Sad for the cuties, though, since they'll miss her a great deal.

Yeah, David's a slacker, all right... Oh, I see. Well, in that case, perhaps he did find his future, after all. Good mechanics are hard to find.

Hmm. This could be a very interesting intern interview! Hope she improves...

That was a really well-done scene with adult Kalora, teen Kalora, and DJ Blaster. Liked it VERY much. Good dialogue through the whole chapter.

Can't wait to see what her next choice will be.

What? He's thinking about retiring? But but nobody could do the job as well as him. Leslie couldn't, even with help from Rogan and Delphine...

Great chapter!
PDXWiz chapter 2 . 10/19/2012
Hmmm...interesting. Yes, I can see why Kalora wants to do this fantasy. Poor girl!

Wow! Kalora is bound and determined to do this. And yes, it COULD change history, but open up some paradoxes. Most likely, she could alter the future events of a parallel time track... Starting with her ten-year-old self should be illuminating.

Heheh, duckpin/candlepin-sized balls...love it!

Hey, those are combinations of Remembralls and the pensieve from the Harry Potterverse...

Cool encounter with young Kalora...how will it turn out?

Starting out nice...oh, no, that Wanda!

Great chapter!

Thank you for the belated birthday treat-what a story! Poor Mr. Roarke, that was alarming that he had a stomach ache-thankfully it was just a hard crystal ball! But the reactions of Haruko and the triplets-just right for children who have spent much of their lives with such a caring girl! I can't get over Darius and Kalora connecting-too bad he and Paloma didn't work out but maybe this paring will! Thanks again for a great and unexpected "trip to the island" and I look forward to your next story!

Yay! Finally! Woohoo!

Wow...the triplets are almost four. FOUR. Whoa.

Cool, I like Katsumi.

Ahh, yes, I understand her concern. Her little baby, all grown up...

That's right, Dania probably will need an assistant in four years. Bingo!

I can't believe Chikako is TEN!

Yay! A cute twiplets scene... ooopsy, a fight over dolls? :(

Poor Tobias...yes, the guy does need his own room. Probably the girls, too.

That's a good plan to split it between Noelle and Brianna. Also easier on the two of them, too. Wow...old enough to babysit...

Wow, again. The 25th reunion... I daresay you'll find a way to write that one up! lol

Hmm, those two fantasies sound very interesting. I am more interested in the siblings who want to experience their ancestor's immigration experiences, but Kalora's fantasy sounds fun. Both are definitely in the style of classic series episodes, I think. I look forward to the unveiling of these fantasies!

Great story.

I think the girl would be better off realizing the past is already set in stone, and no way, Mr. Roarke should NOT retire.

twenty-five years since graduation...ugh, I'm way too close to that myself LOL.
Harry2 chapter 5 . 10/17/2012
Well, the fantasy may not have gone th way theat Kalora had hioped for, but things worked out for her in the end. And a 50th birthday bash? This I HAVE GOT TO READ! (Hurries to liquor store and picks up bottle of Spumante Blush and puts it in the refirigerator* That bottle will NOT be opened till the birthday bash! I want to have something special for Christains 50th!
Harry2 chapter 4 . 10/17/2012
UH OH! If Roarke is clutching his stiomach, I smell either a ulcer or appendiciteis! Either way, this means TROUBLE! It might mean that Leslie is going to have to fill in for him a lot sooner than planned!
Harry2 chapter 3 . 10/17/2012
I don't think its time for Roarke to retire, Not yet at least. Leslie still has much to learn, and I suspect that she will be a temporary hoist. I suspect one of the triplets will eventually take over as host of Fantasy Island.
Harry2 chapter 2 . 10/17/2012
Roarke is right. You CANNOT alter history! And that is something that we all have to learn, no matter how much we want to change it. I just hope that sooner or later, Miss Calhoun learns that.
Harry2 chapter 1 . 10/17/2012
The Triplets, approaching Kindergarden age? MY how time flys! I remember very well when the first appeared on the scene. Now, as for this new fantasy, I smell something interesting here. And it may not work out the way this guest wants it to.
