Now that I'm back from having disappeared for a few months (I do that), I'm trying to get caught up with some fics that I had been reading, and I'm starting with your "Best Laid Plans." In the event that I don't all the way caught up before the thread-bumping limit passes, I may dump some thoughts on your visitor message page (or I could PM if you prefer), just letting you know. :D
In case you've been out of the loop, we all review at the same time because of the big review challenge that's going on right now. We're coming into the home stretch, so updates and new stories get pounced upon right away. The fact that everyone pounces on yours so with such gusto and enjoyment goes to your credit, of course.
EDIT: Ah, I can't believe I forgot to mention that I thought the Italian was cool. If you ever need German in a story, I'm your guy. xD
