    Very well done, Kim. Very well done. I love it.

    As long as Wild could still make music, they wouldn't win.

    <nods> Very well done.

    Quietly applauding again.

    Kudos Kim, truly a vonderful ending to the Faffner Hall section of the story.

    Got this part I could throw in, not sure if it's needed though.
    Kind of a capper on the day's events, sending a message out across the airwaves type of deal. LMK if it'd help. If not, then no worries.
    Thanks for the story Bo and Kim.

    Sure, Count. Let's have it! Also, that invite is still open to anyone who would like to take on perhaps Fraggle Rock, after all, Uncle Matt may have been there...

    Hate to say it... But it looks like you might have to add another chapter to this Bo. Two weeks after these events, there were "incidents" that took place in London today. The police reported them as "incidents", forcing them to evacuate three subway stations and quell another uproar on another bus.
    Not sure if there've been any updates to this, but it seems as if it was another coordinated attack at all cardinal points around London during their lunch hour.
    Hope everything's OK with you Bo and have a good day.

    From what I heard this morning, it wasn't quite as coordinated as the attacks two weeks ago. The detonaters went off, but I guess the explosions weren't as bad. They've got one suspect in the hospital; I heard he might be the same guy who left or tossed a bag in one of the train cars then took off up the escalator - bystanders saw him and started shouting, and I guess some people gave chase.

    As far as I have heard these weren't devistating like the last. But...I am still worried for Luke...not heard from him since before the first attacks...

    <Gulp> I remember this... I remember it was how I found out about... <sigh>. It is still a wonderful story.

    Beau, this is lovely. Thank you so much for writing it -- and Skeeter for pitching in, and Ed for turning the Count's natural proclivities to a worthy, if grim, usage.

    I can't help but think that if more people, EVERYWHERE, took the spirit of the Muppets to heart, no matter their religious preference or upbringing, that we'd have far fewer wars...maybe none at all.

    Maybe just pie fights. Yeah, dream on...

    Great story.

    Oh, and one more thing. A shock I had.

    When it said they cut Piggy's hair, (That was shock enough, I'm telling ethical treatment of divas!) I thought it was cut short...buzzed. Then when she talked to count...
    "It's gone..."


    *dials ethical treatment of divas* Hello? I'd like to file a complaint...What do you mean it's only a fanfic? Don't you dare put me on hold! I'm on hold...

    Consider yourself lucky Bo!:scary:

    Ten years later. I remember this day like it was yesterday, and reading this story brought a lot of those feelings back.

    I'm glad that then, like now, my reaction was Forgiveness. The world has become an even darker place since then, but filled with ever brighter moments too.

    If I could rewrite this now, I'd make a few changes. I'd not refer to one of the only human character as "The fat woman" as if that was her identifier...she was beautiful, trained as a florist and wore a flowered shirt. She was judgemental towards Rowlf at first, but that's only because so many times she'd been let down by others who seemed polite at first.

    Another change, I wouldn't have written Rowlf as praying, because I don't know if that would have been his reaction. His faith would probably be in humanity, not God. (But that was my reaction at the time, so I wrote it over his character I guess.)

    I'm so thankful for the life that I have. Living in freedom in a country where freedom is available. There's still so much to be done to bring the whole world into hope. But every little act of kindness, every moment of forgiveness or message of peace will bring us closer to that time.
