MONGOOSE: A SENSIBLE MAN
ACT ONE ACT TWO ACT THREE ACT FOUR ACT FIVE
Synopsis: This is a tag to the episode "Serpents"
This story is a work in progress that is plotted in its entirety, but each Act is being thoroughly fleshed out before being posted.
Eleanor has been battling RL, but is still working on each Act as and when energies allow.
Warning: REALLY strong stuff follows. I mean it: Angst, historical anecdote, and the whole shebang. Not recommended work reading, or anywhere else where you might have to explain your reaction.
Special thanks to Lee for all the detail work, great beta critiquing, the idea that really made the scene work, and holding my hand, to Sally P. for holding my hand, to Sally P.ís children for sharing their mother with me, to Dina for sending me the Emmylou Harris CD and the Big Sky tape and for holding my hand, to Oann for her enthusiasm and support and for holding my hand, to Pat for doing the same, and to Donna and Barb for their kindness, their support and their infinite understanding and patience, and for holding my hand, to Gail for her impatience and my horse Beau, to my darling sister Christy for her patient nagging, my terrifically indulgent feline parent Pookie, the Lady Tigerlily, and to everyone else who has written to let me know that they are still interested in finding out what happens next. Your continued support and patience is very much appreciated. If youíve written to me and not gotten an answer, please accept my apologies: Iíve been having catastrophic email problems left and right.
Itís been a very tough few years. Thanks for hanging in there with me Ė I hope itís been worth the wait.
