Ooh! Thanks for the reminder about the reviews in advance! I was going to do that anyway, and just forgot. I do all my reviews in WordPerfect and just copy and paste anyway -- and I don't read others' reviews until I've posted mine.
Hannah - no worries on the chapter! I have no idea when I'd be able to incorporate your ideas anyway. And, on a side note, I've had the chapter *I'm* supposed to be beta reading since a few days after I sent you my *first* draft. Ugh. And I have a critique from another forum (original fiction) that I've been sitting on since June. Both of them are technically done, but I just haven't typed them up yet (I work on paper first).
Jess - I'm not usually on AIM unless something is scheduled, so I'll PM you. I'm not good at multitasking, so if I'm IM-ing, that's the main thing I'm doing. If I'm trying to do something else, it doesn't work, which is why I don't usually have any IM programs on.
Ariana - Congratulations on the story! I'll have to check it out! What's the title?
I like Alec, too. And Magnus. Magnus is wonderful. I liked how the third book had a solid ending of its own. I saw on the website that there are still 3 more books in the series, but I don't feel like I'm going to die if they don't come out soon. That's such a relief when you have a long series like that. I don't know if I'd have felt that way after Book 2. I'm really interested in The Clockwork Angel, too. But I should read The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler first, since it's for a paper on noir fiction for my seminar in writing class.
