Hi hi!

So often people leave questions in reviews to my original stories, and I wanted to address them. I apologize that I don't do it in each story, but I like to keep the chapter formats clean (that's why I always leave my author notes for the very very end). And I'm sorry that I didn't think of doing this sooner, so probably nobody who wrote a review will see this. Oops...

While I do appriciate each and every review I recieve, I feel like it's tedious for me to write and you guys to read "thank you" after "thank you" after "thank you." So first of all, here's one big THANK YOU! to all reviewers.

And then, the questions.

Between The Two

"Is Randy a girl's name in America? What is the correct gender to refer to Randy?

'Randy' is technically a boy's name, but it's not too uncommon to find girls with boyish names. Usually when that happens, it will have a different spelling (for example, a girl with the boyish name 'Billy' would likely spell it 'Billie', or a girl named 'Danny' might spell it 'Dani'). So while I've personally never actually met any girls named 'Randy' (or 'Randi'), I don't think anyone who did would think twice about it.

And, since Randy is not transgendered, he is a 'he'. But thank you so so much for asking that! I think actual transgendered people would be very happy for your consideration. ^_^

Burn what? Burn the picture? Is it the scrap book he was making at the beginning that he wants to burn?

Yes, it's the scrapbook. ^^ Burning it is Randy's way of saying he's done fretting over the past, and ready to move on towards the future. Sorry that wasn't more clear!

Divided By Zero

I'm confused. Clay mentioned Adam was a freshman, but at a different high school than Kevin. I thought Adam was in eighth grade? Or was that the year before?

When Clay was with Adam, Adam was in eighth grade (Clay was in sixth grade). When Clay meets Kevin, it's the following year, and Clay is in seventh grade, so Adam's moved on to high school.

Shark-dude is Rin from Free! is it not?

Yes, he is. ;P

And wasn't the ending of Free! just spectacular?

NO, I HATED IT.

.... Okay, 'hate' is a strong word. But I was really, really, really, really, really upset at the end. But only because I'm a die-hard Rei fan.

but here he goes again.

That really sums up this entire story.........

What I want to know is exactly how OLD is Jonathan.

He's 32.

And how could they even be questioning him in school w/o another adult present to look out for Clay's rights? Isn't it law that to question a minor, you have to wait for a parent to be there?

.... Probably. ^^; I admit, I know nothing about the law in such a case. Actually, I don't know anything about anything, and a good most of what I write is bullshit that I just make up as I go along. I'm so sorry!

Don't the inmates, etc. really look down on someone who's in for being a pedo?

Yes. Yes, they do. And Jonathan is not having a good time in there....

And the boy/girl on the bus - he didn't seem so happy with the boarding school, but when he first recognized Clay's blazer he seemed excited.

He was shocked at the coincidence of running into someone going to the school he just came from.

Is the girly guy from the epilogue Randy?

Yes! I'm so glad somebody caught that! XD

It kind of gives a hint at the timeline. In 'Zero', Randy had just graduated high school, whereas in 'Two' he's in his third year of college.

One Last Chance

Nico doesnt seem like much of a charmer.

That is the most accurate description of Nicholai ever, and I laugh every time I read this comment. XD XD

Wow, Clay & Nic are cute together but not too much. hope you just understood what i said.

I totally understood. ^^

What happened in Clay's past that he's so afraid he'll be 'thrown away' like poor Milo.

The Clay in this is the same Clay from 'Divided By Zero', so his scary past is basically everything in that story. ^^

It's too bad he couldn't sneak the cat into school.

And now I'm picturing Clay trying to stuff a cat into his pants......

And that's all for now. ^^

I'll keep all question and review replies in this same thread, so if you wanted to drop a note about any of my stories, please do! I'd love to hear from people.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIMECAP!!!!! :):) I hope you're having a great day!

I tried to put this in different colors and keep the larger text, but for some stupid reason I'm only allowed to change the size or the color, not both. :(

I didn't even know you had this forum page. I just saw it in your A/N for your new chapter.

So Clay is the Clay from Divided by Zero. I never even put two and two together. Wow, now I REALLY don't want him to get hurt again. He's been through way too much for someone so young.

Ok, now I'm going to read the chapter. :)

I just finished reviewing the final chapter of One Last Chance and boy that was a heartbreaker. :(

I was reading one of your reviews and the reviewer asked if the Clay and the bell tower from this story was one and the same from the beginning of Between the Two. I went back and reread the beginning of that story. It's funny b/c I remember reading the beginning of the story when you were first posting it and thinking, what the heck does this have to do with anything? lol Of course now it makes total sense. :)

I loved the story but I hated to see Clay so hurt, and well, dead. So you knew all along that Clay was going to jump off the tower. Which story came first Between the Two or Divided by Zero? Just curious. If it was BtT, then that would mean you knew for THREE stories just what would happen with Clay. That's pretty cool. :)

I'm sorry to see this story end, but like I mentioned in my review - this leaves you wide open for a sequel!! lol :)

Thank you so much! ^_____^ As always.

Between the Two was written first, of those two. There were actually several hints or forshadowing in Divided by Zero that alluded to what was going to happen, a really blatant one being in chapter 7, where it mentions Clay dreaming of falling from a bell tower. So... heh... Yeah, all of quite a few of my stories secretly revolve around Clay and what happened to him.
