I loved Eleanor's reaction to the deadly results of the lark, "I want to go home." Oh, yes -- that rings true. Please continue, the stage has been set (very well, I might add) and now we want to know what happens when you combine one villain weary of Neverland with one young woman who is quickly learning that childish adventure is much less fun in reality than it seems in the abstract. So many possibilities.....
Want adventure, get adventure and all the consequences. The book had its moments and themes of cruelty that the Disney and Broadway and television stories swept away. You have not swept the maway. Bravo! Looking forward to chapter 4....
I do not agree with you on what you said about the film begin better than the book - but still your writing is lovely ;-) you are a real Pan-fan right?? i recognised that ice-breaking and bravery-scene at onc from the movie, but it was not difficult to see that you have read the book, too, because you are very true to the characters. I love it, please go on writing!!! PS: jason isaacs is the best Hook I have ever seen.
This is very promising! I hope you continue. I've always found the book very melancholy, and the thought of a Wendy resigned to her everyday life makes sense. Please write more.
Author's Response: Thanks very much! Hope you continue to enjoy the story. I'll try for regular updates. :-)
I think you've done a lovely job of setting up Eleanor's character and showing us the Wendy-who-did-grow-up. Peter's character also seems quite true to form, in that flighty way of his. I do pine for a more substantial Hook however - perhaps in the next segments when he and Eleanor/Peter/anyone else meet, we'll see some of the dashing fiend that Mr. Isaacs portrays so well. :)
Author's Response: I really wasn't sure if anyone would read here, and haven't posted at the other archives, but I've enjoyed reading at sycophant hex so much in the past, that I wanted to be sure that I would write something that would be worthy of this site.
I will try to make Hook more substantial. I could have made this chapter longer to include more information, but I hoped mainly to introduce Eleanor, and to set up the current situation and how Hook came back to life. Thanks for reviewing!
