Don't forget to post the new story name here if you're going ot start a new one
When you think about it, the end of Romeo & Juliet is acutally pretty funny. (Note that some of the females in my class called me quite a few things when I said this, none of them nice)

Ponyboy ... I haven't had a chance until now to really compliment you and say how I have appreciated your stories; this one and your others. I've enjoyed how at the end you find that they've connected to another piece of the Ponyboy zombie-verse.

Thanks again!

Nicely written. I particularly like the fact that as the characters evolve they don't change, but become deeper and more complex. Daphne, in particular, I envision as an inked-up, rough-ridin', cookie-baking grandma that wouldn't shy away from a bar fight, no matter how "settled" she might become.

Just had a chance to finish reading your story. Best one yet. Best one yet.


EDIT to add: And I really like how your universe is shaping up. The events in each story tie in nicely, and point to a far greater "grand story". I like.

I'm seriously sad that there is no MOAR of PB's stories. :(

I keep checking ever so often and get sad. :(

He did! It's called "But with a Whimper."

It's a bit different; a progressive story.

Excellent story, read the entire thing in less than 24 hours. Looking forward to reading your next story.

This is the story that got me hooked on PB. His writing really sucks you in. Of all the books/stories I've read TFTR is easily one of my top 50.

Same here, this story really made me do a double take and his newest work is a real eye-catcher as well...here's hoping he keeps right on posting

It's me again, late to the party, as usual, but I have to say 'Thanks', again, for a great yarn.
I've enjoyed it immensely, and I am looking forward to catching up on your other stories.
Cheers, Ponyboy!

Being late to the party just means catching up...well...it used to. :lol:

It's great to hear from others who enjoy PB's stories. He does tell a good tale. Not much MOAR goin' on recently, eh? Pity.
