Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

So, I have a soft/hard deadline query: I’ve been caught up most of the day, and it’s now hit past midnight in my timezone - by the time I wake up it’ll be about 8pm UK time... So long as it’s in a few hours after that (but not after midnight UK time), is that still acceptable (if not ideal)? Sorry ...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Can anyone tell me if Matthew & Lucy actually meet Alison in 1995? I have a chapter where they find her, but I'm not clear if it is just "finding" her or actually meeting her? They are already best friends in 1995, although only for about a year or two. Really? The character notes for...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

I'm assuming that between leaving school and becoming an architect in 2007, that Lucy was an architecture student rather than having a completely different career. Or am I fretting too much about detail? You can fill in whatever blanks you like! Don't worry too much about continuity. Some discrepan...

They are already best friends in 1995, although only for about a year or two.
