Hey Luton!! First of all, congratulations on having The User archived!! It is a very well deserved honor and I'm quite happy for you! Secondly, let me tell you how much I loved this chapter. Your description of the planet Tadgh and Taban are on was PERFECT! I could practically feel the humidity as I was reading - and let me tell you, humidity does NOT make for a good hair day. I speak from experience and can honestly say that ponytails are my friend during the summer! Anyway, what in the world have our boys stumbled into?? The Maitland commune?? Oh, I am dying to know what that's all about. You left us w/ quite an evil cliffie!!! I'm also intrigued by what Keys has going on. I really like her and hope she manages to stay safe. She apparently doesn't have the element of surprise on her side.... Yikes! I'm a bit nervous about her predicament as well. Bravo! What a treat it is to read your stories!
