Astra, sorry for the untimely response to your message! I don't visit the site as frequently anymore, but I am still keeping up with your story. I'm definitely still enjoying it. The writing style is clear and detailed, and the slow pace means that when we do finally find out something about the story, it feels like it's a better payoff, if that makes sense. I'm having a hard time explaining exactly why I like the story, but I think maybe it's because it feels familiar, but different enough to hold my interest and not be cliche. Keep it up! I'm not around here a lot, but I do check back every once in a while for the stories!
Sorry to see you go. You were one of the best new posters here. I can't really blame you, though, cause I've started feeling the same way.
Thanks for the kind words. There are plenty of cool people here still, yourself included, so I'll probably continue checking occasionally. I'm just going to be more selective about what threads I read, stop answering "what baby diapers will fit me" threads with "they won't" and a link to Cottontail's size chart, and try not to let the "You have X unread posts" bother me. That last one will probably take the most effort...
Woo hoo! Yep, always cool to see people that remember what I consider a PC classic. In fact, T7G is considered one of the main reasons the CD-Rom drive became popular. Because of such an amazingly rendered game people realized that by implementing cd's for video games you could really push the bar to another level with games. I must admit that the first copy I played was on the Philips CDI however and because televisions have a lower resolution and a larger screen than most monitors back in the day, I would say that the Philips CDI version is superior to the PC version. I also have Myst, Shivers, tons of old Sierra games, Kings quest, etc. Even Journeyman Project Turbo, Buried in time.. the list could go on forever! lol... such a nerd!
Yeah homie, still writing it. Life is busy, its not top priority, but I'm still writing it. Actually just finished a chapter this week. I'm thinking no updates will be posted until the early fall, by which time I intend to be finished. Appreciate your interest and encouragement.
No problem! I always enjoy stories that have realistic environments with focus on character development, and not just random unlikely stuff happening. I think the pace is great! Some people might think it's slow, but it's very effective. I look forward to reading more! (When you have time to write, of course).
