You know my dear Lady Margaret though Mad you may be, with the turn of a word and a flick of your wrist you create a world that is believable and filled with trials and tribulations that can bring out the deepest withheld emotions for us all. For that I thank you. This is one venue that you can tell an author how much you appreciate their work. For this is truly entertaining.

Wow! A chilling twist! Very emotionally brutal. I laughed at Willie using Barnabas' Inverness cape as a seat liner, but my laugh was soon stifled by the sudden turn. This is my favorite in the Willie Loomis series so far. I feel like his best development is here. Something you add into this that I really enjoy and savor are the few moments that Willie spends with David. The moments are few, but precious. There's a lot of heart in these moments. Another great chapter, and your affection for the character really shines through in the dialogue. I love it. :)

Wow Mad Margaret. This shows a whole different aspect of barnabas. Poor willie...no beefaroni? As Janet said to Brad in the beginning of rocky horror...I really like the skillful way...you wrote this tale...fantastic!

Nice ending. I like that Willie compared himself to James Dean, and the Collins Christmas party sounds amusing. Also thought it was funny that Barnabas is scandalized with the possible existence of female cops. Get with the times man! I bet you write an awesome Julia!

That's exactly what I was thinking! Willie was not a coward! Your take on these events from Willie's POV is incredible. These last 2 chapters show how, even though he is a broken man, he is fearless and keeps changing Barnabas' rules. If one good thing came from all those misadventures with Jason, it was that he learned how to stand up for himself and find a way to do what he wanted to do. Really enjoyed his dream sequence! The million dollars was so funny! Very well-written, and I loved the Barnabas dialogue even more. -applauding-

You once again provide some fun and interesting interactions for Willie to make with other characters. Like the scene with Dr. Woodard, and the hint that Maggie may not be dead after all. I like how you gather various characters at the church, and made the Blue Whale bartender have a beautiful baritone voice. Poor Willie having to spend another lousy Christmas/birthday. His relationship with Barnabas is becoming more complex. I like that I don't know what to expect from these two.

I like your take of Jason's demise, and interesting conference between Willie and Barnabas. The little snarky notes they wrote each other at the end is funny.

Feels better if circumstance is plural
