I guess my basic reaction is that it's out of character (show reference:
after Uncle Chuck's temporarily deroboticized, she tells Sally maybe she
should "take another look at that man...") _and_ it wasn't really necessary
to the story line (IMVNSHO).

I don't want to know...

Maybe I deserve that, although Babs Bunny will still be #1 :^)

Actually, I wasn't all that offended, probably because I've seen worse on (speaking as a survivor of the great TTBS flamewar...),
plus I didn't get as attached to Bunnie as I did Babs, plus it had been a
long day between Good Friday services and pretty much deciding I was fed up
with my job enough to see if there are any better ones out there (anybody
need a digital/analog circuit designer? :^)), so I was more or less too
tired to get upset when I finally got around to reading it last night :^)

> Hope nobody got too bummed by my allowing Queen Alicia to die.

Well, it was pretty much expected, but it was still quite sad - especially
Sally's reaction... I'll confess I got a bit teary-eyed at it, which
bothered me because it was yet another reminder that I am moved more by the
suffering of imaginary characters than I am my fellow man.

>Thanks for putting up with my ramblings.

And mine :^) I meant none of the above criticism personally, nor the
following: I guess I'm a bit disappointed that with the exception of
"The Power of Love", all of the fan-fic so far has more or less been on the
grim side (especially the latest stuff with Packbell). While I admit I do
like the dark theme of the Sat. AM show itself, at least most of the
episodes have enough hope in them that this tempers things a bit. I don't
seem to see this in the fan-fic. But far be it from me to tell people what
to write - if I decide that it's not worth discussing the comics (that and
the fan-fic are about all that's left to talk about), I can always

PS to my non-list CCers: if you want a copy of the story, e-mail me -
I still have it for now. I haven't decided how long or if I'll keep it

BTW, Happy Easter everybody! I pray that those of you who don't know
Christ as your personal Savior will take a moment to consider His claims
and what He has to offer; also, if you were to die tonight and stand before
God and He asks you "Why should I let you into My heaven?", what answer
would you give Him?
