  1. That was simply beautiful.I loved every word of it.The way you captured Barry's thoughts and feelings and inner turmoil.I'm so glad he found the strength to own up to what he'd done and that it all turned out all right.

    Few names to cross off the list of people who might be dead.I suspect it's

    Will

    but I'm looking forward to finding out.

    Thanks. :D Glad it came across okay as I found it very tough to write about Barry. I could understand why he killed his wife (to protect his son) but I couldn't understand him leaving her body buried in an unmarked grave for nearly twenty years. Never mind, it's only fiction! :rolleyes: You might be right about the person who died, you might not... :wink:

  2. Summer Bay High

    I have ALMOST finished part two of the epilogue "Jigsaw" (it will run to three parts :rolleyes: ) but there's no way I'll get it done before Xmas. Weather permitting, :unsure: (it's only a short car journey tho :) ) I'm going away today for Xmas. For anyone who wants a sneak peak:

    “It will be fine tomorrow,” she promised.

    He believed her. He believed everything about the woman he loved with every fibre of his being. She knew he had killed his wife out of love for his son. She knew that, in terror and confusion, he had buried the body on a remote hill, the only witnesses to the burial his sister, now dead herself, and his baby son. But nor did she pressure him into confessing to the authorities. It will be in your own time, at your own pace, Irene said. And her brown eyes were full of love for him.

    The day Barry Hyde cleansed his soul was bathed in sunlight and kissed with gentle breezes.

    Yes, I thought it was way past time Barry confessed... :wink:

  3. I'm about halfway/threequarters through the next chapter and then after that, believe it or not, will follow the final chapter!!!! :o

    It's mostly been enjoyable to write but got really tough during the last half-dozen chapters or so (and I think lost a lot of readers along the way :( ) as by then it had got way too compliacted and there were times when I didn't know how the hell I was going to sort everything out. I've just checked and Kat (Skykat) began this in Sept 2006! :blink: She asked me to collaborate a couple of months later and I took over he reins completely a few months after that so four years :blink: is a long, long, long run for Hayley's party...

    Anyway, should be posting the penultimate chapter next weekend and then will work on the final chaper - at last!!!!! :lol:

    ps Could Hayley's party guests please finish your drinks now and start heading towards the door....

  4. Well, I'm damned if I know HOW I've done it as I've been busy working on other writing projects and this story is a bit complicated VERY complicated :rolleyes: but I HAVE managed almost 2000 words of the next chapter so could update any time in the next week when I've edited. Thank goodness Gypsy is such a great character! :P

  5. I don't watch the show but have done in the past, or tried to over the internet anyway.. but I have to say those titles are really well produced, I'd like to see them in HD. After seeing those I started watching some of the older titles and these new ones have definitely got a nice sense of 'tradition' to them, espeically the end shot with the sun setting over the old chimney pots and that ginger cat who seems to be in every set of titles going back to the 70's..or maybe before?

    I also like the new theme tune, its obviously been re-recorded especially for the new titles as its very crisp. What I like about Coronation Street is that they seem to be very aware of the shows history and 50 years old!! Wow, is that the oldest soap around?

    Not sure where I read this but a few years ago someone lent me a book called "50 years of Coronation Street" so it might have been there. :unsure: Anyway, I remember reading that when they were doing the very first opening theme for Corrie a cat happened to be sitting on the wall so they panned in on it with the camera. Don't know if it's the same cat from then that they still show nowadays or if it's a different one.

  6. Okay, wasn't expecting that.The backstory for Eleanor was interesting although the cynical part of me is still thinking that the plot doesn't seem to have progressed much.I'm assuming that the conversation between Megan and Eleanor will turn out to be significant and that maybe she'll find out who's going to die as a result.Looking forward to reading the long-awaited conclusion of this!

    Thanks for your review. It won't seem like it at the moment, but that chapter has actually taken the plot forward and will tie in with a scene I've had in my mind for a long time (tho as this fic started out as a birthday party and I decided to introduce ghosts and omens and complicate matters... :rolleyes::blink:. The main theme of the story is still friendship. :wink:

  7. Thanks, everyone, for still following Summer Bay High, it takes my breath away whenever I check in and see just how many more hits it's had! :blink::D I am working on the next chapter, but I've been busy working on some other writing for a while and I have absolutley no idea where this latest chapter is going tho, as it's almost 2,000 words at the moment, it must be going somewhere. :rolleyes: Like I said a while back, I have lost my way with this fic through getting over-ambitious so, despite the writers' block, :( I'll still keep writing and fingers crossed it will eventually turn out okay. :unsure:

  8. Oh thats a shame, I used to really like Ashley and Claire!

    The street will be weird without them thats for sure, I can't believe Ashley's been there 15 years. Their exit will mark the end of the line for the Peacock/Elliott family now seeing as Fred is dead and now Ashley/Claire are going to.

    I think there are PLENTY of others who should have been axed before the Peacocks, such as Fiz,Molly,Sean (God the most annoying person on television), John, Rosie, Michelle,Becky,Steve,Jason. Out of all the 3 big soaps Corrie definitely has the most deadwood!

    I agree on some, Molly, Rosie, Michelle and maybe John should all be axed. And as for the life of me I can't even remember who Sean is, he should be axed too as he's obviously made no impression on me! :lol:

    I think Corrie is going through a very mundane phase at the moment. I don't like the storyline of Sophie and Shan (not sure how to spell that) and the big drama of Molly's car crash isn't even interesting me, probably because I don't like the character and don't think it rings true that she and Kevin would be having an affair. Fortunately, Corrie usually picks up (eventually) as viewers are very hard to please... :rolleyes:

  9. I'm finding Leanne and Peter the most interesting storyline at the moment. :) Peter going to propose to Leanne and then Leanne proposing to Peter...awww... :wub: And the kid who plays Simon is really cute and a fantastic little actor. :wub: He and little Ollie (Phillips/Davis) could have their own show! :lol:

  10. I realise I've been a bit critical but I know you'd be just as brutal with my work.I have really enjoyed this story and I really hope that you finish it because I want to know how it all pans out for the characters.

    No, actually, it's lovely to get an honest opinion. :D I think the main problem is that there are way too many characters (each with their own set of problems! :P ) which is why I wrote Dani out a while back; I had every intention of writing Noah/Kit out but there was a regular reader (since disappeared about 6 monts/a year ago) who was a huge Noah/Kit fan so I kept them in for her sake; I wanted to write Barry out and maybe even Irene but there was quite a faithful Barry/Irene following at one stage and, anyway, I got very interested in writing Irene's childhood... :rolleyes: I was never particularly keen on writing about Kim either, he just had to be in because of Barry.

    Kat (Skykat) began the story and wanted it to be about matching up different couples; when she asked me to take over I wanted it to be about friendships being more important than who's going out with who. The flashbacks just happened because most of the time I didn't have a clue what was going to happen next so was buying time! It IS way too long and it's definitely not the best fanfic I've written (Sally Called! takes that title :D )

    Thanks for your review. It's really nice of you to take the time to review so many stories on here. I really wish had time to read/review and write more but maybe in the future... :)

  11. Who keeps reading this? :unsure: Every time I check the view count has gone up and up and up :D but very few people comment...

    Ah, well, going offline soon but for the mystery people :P still reading, you'll be pleased to know that I have done quite a bit of work on the next chapter. Not sure if it's any good as I broke off for quite a while to write a non-H&A story and I'm trying to draw all the storylines here to a close. It's been really difficult to write tho as I seem to have left almost everyone in dire circumstances (Will lost in the Ancient Path/Whitelady Woods; Barry almost drowned; Martha and Kane trapped on an island; Irene trapped by a wooden beam...) Serves me right for trying to be clever... :rolleyes:

    Anyway, thanks for reading, mystery people, and I'll get back to you soon! :)

  12. I don't see how Ciaran is of any addition to the show whatsoever!

    He is as pointless now than he was during his previouse stint. He just adds nothing much at all, the only thing he adds to is the list of deadwood covering Corrie at the moment :P

    Eye candy. :P

    ^ I think he just let go. I think he realised the pathetic-ness of his situation...and that he was better off dead. I blame Gail...the woman's a curse.

    I never thought of it that way before, but considering her track record with men... :lol:

  13. I suffer from writers block every now and then, does anyone help some helpful tips to prevent or manage writers block?

    ok I've got some serious writers block on two sides....

    I'm still a couple of chapters ahead... im onto chapter 24 now.... and I know where I'm taking my fic and whats going to happen.... and there's going to be around 40 chapters but Im just having trouble getting the rest of ch 24 down in words... and without giving too much away because I have a few people reading it....

    Gahhhhhhhhh any ideas!

    Shouldn't this thread be at the top with the other "important topics" instead of being constantly buried in this forum...? :unsure:

    Try brainstorming. :)

    Write anything that comes into you head whether it's a whole scene, a snippet of conversation or just a brief sentence. Don't worry about writing in sequence at this stage, all you are doing is getting your creative juices flowing again. The exercise gives your imagination a kick start and generates more ideas.

    I often jump from scene to scene when I have writers' block. It seems very confused to begin with but it always comes together in the end. :)

  14. It didn't seem right posting in Summer Bay High as I still haven't finished the next chapter yet so I thought I'd post here instead. I'm stunned :o that it's had about 96 hits short of 2000 views since the last chapter was posted nearly four week ago!!! :blink::D

    I have another very, very busy weekend ahead so I think it might be another week or so before the next update. I'm around the 3000 word mark, I got carried away again... :rolleyes: For anyone following, Chapter 47 will be a Will/Hayley/Nick chapter. Thanks for reading. :D

  15. My favourite Ollie scene was when Kane was playing with him and Kirsty told him she was going to leave with him. I also loved the hospital scene and the one at the caravan park. Sam and Oliver Davis had great chemistry. Ollie is so lucky to have Kane for a Dad!

    That's very true. Ollie acts very well with everyone but with Sam Atwell in particular. They really do seem like father and son. :)

  16. WOW! that was so good, so intense and very different to the other fics that are out there

    I'll have to catch up with the rest of it at the weekend, if the rest of it is like that chapter then i cant wait

    Really looking forward to seeing what happens next!

    Thanks! :blush: That's very flattering and also very reasurring :D as I didn't consider this one of my best chapters.

    I don't know if anyone on here is still determinedly following :ph34r: who's been with this from the very beginning but I am beginning to get pictures in my head (after a bad case of writers' block) for the concluding chapters and an epilogue. I don't know how many more chapters that will mean, but I know it does mean I can eventually tie everything together. Which didn't seem very likely not too long ago! :P

  17. I really wish the writers could of tried harder to get Sam back for Kirsty and Ollie last episode. It would of been great too see them leave with Kane

    That's exactly what everyone else is thinking - everyone except the writers. It seemed so obviously the right thing to do, and I have real trouble believing that Sam would refuse to return for a couple of episodes if it meant finally wrapping up KK's story properly, but the writers appear to have lost interest in what the viewers genuinely want.

    Even if, for some reason, Sam Atwell couldn't have returned for a couple of episodes, they could at least have had Kirsty perhaps talking on the phone and her conversation making it clear that she was going to Kane.

    I agree, it would have been lovely to have an episode with Kirsty going home to her soulmate and Ollie going home to his real Daddy. I can even picture them getting off a bus on a long, dusty road and Kane waiting there, grinning. "Hey, babe!" He says, and they both run into his arms, Ollie winning the race, Kirsty arriving a split second later. Cue the credits... :)

  18. Guesses on how long the new woman at the cabin lasts she dosent say a word poor Norris how long will it take him to get rid of her

    They have to pay the actors more if they speak, that's why so many ppl go in the corner shop or wherever and do lots of nodding. :P
