July 2010 and a young married couple are out for a relaxing and romantic day. An afternoon at the theatre, followed by a meal to bring back memories. It should be a fairytale day. Unfortunately, it is.
This is a sequel to Moon and is another story featuring Mark Moon (Best Original Character - Quicksilver Quills 2010). A lady named Lavender appears too.
... and your stories always encourage me to research British "culture" (I just watched several Bombardier videos on YouTube).
Author's Response: The Bombadier ads are Rik Mayall (aka Peeves, apparently, though his scenes were deleted) doing a version of his Blackadder character "Lord Flashheart". British humour. -N-
Another new chapter. Good.
I've read a few post-war Lavender stories; your characterization of her is one of the best. Sometimes I love her and sometimes she's an annoying bitch. That makes her real and interesting.
There isn't much backstory here on motherhood for Lavender - is there more coming later? I think it would help fill in the gap between "Moon" and this story, as well as showing her soft side that contrasts with the beast of her transformation.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I have a timeline for Lavender from the battle to this story. I have similar feelings towards her too.Lavender the mother will be pretty annoying (I have several ideas) and I feel sorry for little Violet who will be dressed in frills and flounces. I have several Lavender stories part-written. I knew when she gets bitten and when (and where) she first meets Mark.
