Sybill didn't care how the device operated, she just wanted it to work.
That's my favorite line. It's very Sybill. :D
Gosh, it's been forever since I've been on MNFF. I kept getting "this site may harm your computer messages" that made me leery of signing on. I guess they had to update security certificates or something, but whatever, I'm glad I'm no longer getting dire messages, and I'm able to review.
Heh heh on submitting without changes. I think it was their turn apostrophes to question marks glitch that did it before.
Take care. :)
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I've had problems getting in and out of this website so I've been slow to post and slow to respond. I've also been slow in general so maybe it's just me:D All I know is that something did harm my computer and now it's been about 10 days and I haven't been able to take it in to have it fixed yet. That's one of the disadvantages of living in the middle of nowhere. That line that you like may describe Sybill very well but it also describes me. A lot of times I don't want a song and dance about how something works--I just want it to work. I guess I'd better get going on another chapter in this story. See you next time.
I admire you for writing Sybill (I think one 'l' is US and two 'll' is UK...or one by land, two by sea, heh). You make her sympathetic, which can be hard to do. I hope you work in one of her "computer generated fortunes" into the story. That would be a lot of fun.
If anyone who reads wonders if I put the question marks into the text, no, I did not. :D
Author's Response: I'm sorry it took me so long to respond to your review. You're the only one to review this chapter so I'm not used to looking for them in this story. You can imagine my surprise. Not many people write about Sybill and that gives me a bit of leeway. It seems in the books and fan fiction, that Sybill is always made fun of and mocked. I think seeing her in the final movie where she pitched in and fought and cleaned up with everyone else made me want to write about her. It was a small peek at her role but it stuck with me. So thanks so much for the review. I didn't see question marks in the text but little boxes. Thank goodness you reviewed and mentioned that. I had no idea. I've got to go in and fix that. I'm going to resubmit the second chapter thinking that it was rejected because of punctuation problems.
