I'm not sure where to begin, so I am just going to ramble through this review.
First, I have to say I was absolutely blown away by the twist near the end of the story. What a stroke of genius on your part! I felt so bad for Amanda, she had finally found true love and happiness in this new world, only to have it ripped apart as she was thrust back into her old self. I felt my heart sink into my gut as I realized Harry was back and Amanda was gone. You really got to me, Casey.
Harry seemed to take the whole return a lot better than I would have expected. I'd be a raving lunatic trying to get back to being Amanda. That part of the story reminded me of a movie called "Somewhere in Time" where a guy uses his mind to travel back in time around 90 years, meet a girl, and fall in love. He accidentally finds an object from his present life and is pulled back from the past. He is heartbroken to the point of death as he tries to go back in time again.
Your story also reminded me of a Star Trek Next Generation episode where an alien device causes Picard to live out a lifetime as part of another culture, only to be put back in his own world with only a few days elapsing.
I have a harder time resolving the evidence that Amanda was real. It seems like all the pieces of her life would be there, or none of them. Maybe Harry did open those offshore accounts and forgot about them. Seems like the people should still exist, though, if the other evidence exists. I think you did the best you could with trying to reconcile alternate realities. Again, great job.
I honestly thought at first that May was the one controlling the twofer swaps. Then Sid. Then I thought that May had been a twofer herself and that Amanda was meant to take her place as a guide for future twofers. Oh, well, I'm no good at picking lottery numbers either.
I am amazed at the completeness of this story. You had plots, sub-plots, side stories, other characters lives completely detailed. You had it all in here. This wasn't the typical TG transformation with a little background and future thrown in for balance. This could be a movie in its own right. Your writing skills are impeccable. I can't believe this was one of your earliest stories. One thing that matters to me is detail. Your story certainly made me feel like I was in the room with Amanda the whole time (and I wish I had been). Another is passion. Without it, a story seems flat, just words on paper. You made the characters come alive in complete 3-D.
I can't say enough good stuff about this story, Casey. You grabbed my attention and my emotions, and held reign on them both for the entire roller coaster ride. I can't wait to read the sequels and your other stories. You are one of my favorite authors, this is one of my most favorite stories, and I am a very devoted fan. Thank you, Elron.

First of all, congratulations on writing such an epic story. I only gave 4 starts because the parts I loved were really great, but there were parts I found boring and just skipped through on my reader. I love our main character Amanda/Harry and her progression/growth through out the story. I loved most of the characters, but got really bored with Ford and Fionna after the first couple sexual experiences. I was happy when Ford moved to Cal and I thought Fionna's ultimate destination was a brilliant turn of events by the author...didn't see that coming. I wasn't totally satisfied with the ending, still many unanswered questions, but I see you have sequels to this story. Overall a great story...could have been shorter...but I admire anyone who can write such an imaginative and creative story. Well done!
Author's Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed it. Coping was one of my earlier stories, and were I to do it over, there would be many minor changes, as well as being divided into 3 or 4 shorter stories probably. If you enjoyed this, I believe you will enjoy the sequels. I think I carried this one on too long because I really didn't know how to end it. lol
Date: 02/18/17 03:34 pm Title: Chapter 7 Revenge and Recovery
I only just started this but really enjoy the storyline and characters. Looking forward to delving into it more.
Author's Response: Thank you. This was one of my first stories. There are also a couple of sequels.
Date: 11/13/16 08:19 pm Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
Have to thank editors picks for pointing me in the direction of this story,If the first chapter is anything to go by then it all i can say is the editor knows their stuff .... Thanks too to Casey for writing and sharing it with us all..
Author's Response: Thank you so much. This was one of my early stories. It's so long because I had a difficult time saying goodbye to the characters. If you finally wade through this one, I do have a couple of sequels posted also.
Date: 01/08/15 05:13 am Title: Chapter 68 Harry Speaks
Now this is a twist!! Impressive...
Author's Response: Thanks. Almost the entire time I was writing Coping, I had no idea how I would end it. I finally decided I'd ridden that horse enough and came up with a last minute fix.
Date: 02/10/14 02:36 am Title: Chapter 69 Final Interlude
Thanks for a very nice story. You have left enough hints in the last few paragraphs to take Amanda/Harry & now Dakota in any of several directions. I might find that I miss Amanda's family, and I'll guess Amanda certainly misses Roger. It was the perfectly ordinary family bits that got me a bit misty eyed, thanks! Lastly, we have no clues (other than it has considerable power) about the Agency that did the twofer changes. Hmm, and a slowly growing network of twofers could be interesting. If Harry got his old (male) body back ... Could you let us in on what's up with Talia? Oh, and Harry seems well enough off, and interested, to perhaps do some work helping TG people with, well coping with bodies that aren't standard, in a world that will hurt them for being different.
Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, I left several possibilities for directions to take this in the future, and I may pursue them some time. I think Harry and Dakota definitely need to be followed some more, but I'm currently working on a sequel to The Resort. Maybe in the future. I included the family parts to make Amanda a more rounded character. Email me if you want to discuss anything about the story.
Date: 02/09/14 06:39 pm Title: Chapter 69 Final Interlude
Awesome story. I loved from beginning to end. I hope that this story doesn't mark the end of your writing. I must admit that after the wedding of Amanda and Roger, I did not expect the change back to Harry. However, it was a great way to end this story. Thank you for very enjoyable tale.
Author's Response: I'm so pleased that you enjoyed it. I have two others posted and have just begun a sequel to The Resort.
Date: 02/09/14 02:58 pm Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! IT ENDED!!!!!!
So.... Many..... Questions!!!!! Why become Amanda in the first place??? Is the whole moral live lufe to its fullest, cause you never know when youll go into a coma for 3 days/5 years and swap bodies... Why labor day? Is god in this story a really bored to lick the sam
Author's Response: I had to end it. I was afraid it was becoming somewhat repetitious, but maybe after a break I can explore it further. If you want to discuss anything about the story, just email me.
Date: 02/09/14 10:49 am Title: Chapter 69 Final Interlude
Such a pity to see my suspicions were actually correct about you wrapping up the story. Nonetheless it's been one hell of a wonderful ride and this was quite a nice way to finish it up.
There are still a bunch of questions in my head about the whole twofer thing. I hope someone decides to write a story based in this universe you've created. I'd try my own hand at it, but I don't really have the time to spare for that and even if I had, I am not confident in my capabilities.
If that changes in the future, I'll let you know for sure.
All in all, this was a really enjoyable story to read and kept me wanting for more all the time. Looking forward to what you might write in the future.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm currently working on a sequel to my story The Resort. I'd be glad to discuss anything about Coping with anyone. Just send me an email, and I'll try to answer any questions you have or explain why things happened as they did.
Date: 02/08/14 01:27 pm Title: Chapter 68 Harry Speaks
The past few chapters were wonderful, but I started to fear things were heading to a conclusion to this whole story. Thanks for this delicious twist!
Author's Response: Thank you, sweetie. One more chapter to go.
Date: 02/08/14 11:08 am Title: Chapter 68 Harry Speaks
OMFG!!! It's a f**kin' nightmare! Always knew it could happen one morning, but wow! It's "Bobby Ewing" nightmare! On the other hand, so nice to finally meet the infamous Casey! (Xoxo!). You sexy vixen you! (Giggles Talia!). Oh sweetie, I know we're close to the end, but this really throughs a "monkey wrench in the works! Please please tell me I'm more than a figment of imagination! Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: How can you be a figment when Harry found your journal? giggle
Date: 02/07/14 02:02 pm Title: Chapter 67 Interlude 5
Hi Casey! Guess we're getting close to the final chapter. The prospect of finding yet another "twofer" is an interesting development. I wonder if we'll ever find out who or what's been behind it all. Sweetie it's been fun and I've enjoyed participating in your story here. I see you've starting your next one already and I'm looking forward to reading it as well hon. Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: As long as it has been fun, then it's been worth it. *kiss*
Date: 02/06/14 11:23 am Title: Chapter 67 Interlude 5
A short chapter for you,love the wrap up,are you feeling ok,or are you excited for your next project.
Author's Response: I have 2 more chapters in this story, just need to revise, proofread, and post them, so I've already begun on my next story which is a sequel to The Resort. I'll probably have the last two chapters of Coping up by this weekend, but it will be a week or so, I guess before I have any chapters of the new one ready. I was having so much fun with this story, I did kind of feel reluctant to start on the next one, but since I've begun it, I'm raring to go.
Date: 02/03/14 11:44 am Title: Chapter 66 Mrs. Craig
Ahh give me a minute! While I catch my breath & compose myself! (Phew!). Yes, I wondered about May to, but when she came to Amanda in her dreams a while back and Amanda told her about being a twofer, May didn't seem to know 'til then, but of coarse that was a dream so who knows for sure. Casey dear, am I meeting you on Labor day? Loving Hugs Talia
Date: 01/31/14 11:33 pm Title: Chapter 65 Wedding
Wow. It seems that Amanda's dreams have come true. What a wonderful story. I had fallen behind and had to catch up for the past several chapters. I am really enjoying this one. It is your best story.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm so glad you enjoy it.
Date: 01/27/14 11:24 am Title: Chapter 64 Two Months of Weekends
Awesome,can't wait for the wedding,what surprises do you have to spring out,a plane crash and car accident? Well looking forward to the next chapter anyways!
Author's Response: I was considering a plague of locusts.
Date: 01/26/14 09:12 pm Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
Don't listen to that person,I and others are enjoying your story and if it makes you feel good to write it,then do it!!!
Author's Response: I re-read my response to that review and realized I inadvertently came across a little harsh. I just meant to say that I prefer longer stories that are more developed. If I see a completed story that is less than 5 chapters, I usually don't bother checking it out. Usually these contain little character or plot development, and I always seem to go away wanting more. I've always preferred novels to short stories.
Date: 01/26/14 03:19 pm Title: Chapter 64 Two Months of Weekends
OMG! OMG! I'm going to be a bridesmaid! (Squee!). So happy for you Mandy dear! OMG! There's so much to do! Casey dear, you must simply come help with it all! Loving Hugs & Wet Kisses Talia
Author's Response: Calm down, sweetie. lol
Date: 01/26/14 11:18 am Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
I guess you have a lot to say. Just so you know a great stories but a bit to long unless your trying to make a actual book. If you want to be a author then continue but if this is just free time continue but if this is something for good reviews or something like that. Stop.
Author's Response: Although I appreciate them, I don't write for reviews. I write to explore my own fantasies, and if they resonate with others, then great. I'd originally planned on this being no longer than 10 chapters, but it took on life of its own. There are only a few chapters left to go. Like any other story here, if it doesn't appeal to you, then move to something that does. That's the beauty of this place....something for everyone.
Date: 01/23/14 02:00 pm Title: Chapter 63 Day to Day
Oh honey, I so hope your right! I truly am happy for you Amanda dear. Casey dear, don't forget to update us on how Kate, Roz, Julie, & Margie are doing! Thank you sweetie, Loving Hugs & Wet Kisses Talia
Author's Response: Kiss.
Date: 01/18/14 10:58 pm Title: Chapter 60 An Old Friend
Omg. This is certainly an interesting development. I can hardly wait to read the next installment. It sounds as if Amanda will be quite busy in the coming days. I love this story and can't wait to explore your other stories as well.
Author's Response: I'm really glad you like it, and I hope you like the others.
Date: 01/15/14 01:30 pm Title: Chapter 60 An Old Friend
Hmmm..... Now there's something I hadn't thought of, Harry's ol' friend Roger. Well I hope it turns out to be what Amanda's been waiting for, but I suspect...... well let's just see what happens. Talia's not sure if Rory's the "one" either, but you have me thinking about Tim's past........ Casey Dear, as always.... Thank you sweetie! Loving Hugs & Wet Kisses Talia
Date: 01/15/14 02:56 am Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
This story is awesome. I wait eagerly for each installment. I would have loved to see Amanda end up with Julie. Perhaps her own cute t girl is on her way, although Talia would not appear to be a bad match for Amanda either. Keep this story going. It is the one I look forward to seeing updated the most.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, hon. I'm glad you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it. But eventually, it will have to end.
Date: 01/14/14 08:10 am Title: Chapter 59 Talia Takes the Plunge
Just finished reading this whole story and I'm loving it. Great work!
The only thing that I wonder about is why Amanda didn't ask a little more about Tim then she has. Specificaly where Tim was before waking up as Talia and what he was doing at the time.
Mostly, because that has the prospect of a clue on their little situation.
Other then that, I've the fact that I kept reading this long after I decided to stop for the day should be an indication of how much I liked it. Looking forward to whatever comes next!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Nathriel. This story has turned into such a behemoth that I have to admire anyone who is able to slog all the way through it. There are a few more chapters to come, so I think part of your questions will be answered. I write 3 chapters ahead of what I post, and I'm constantly amused by reviewers anticipating what, in some cases, has already happened, just not been posted.
Date: 01/13/14 07:20 pm Title: Chapter 59 Talia Takes the Plunge
Ok, my appetite's sated for the moment! (Giggling profusely!). As I lie curled up on the couch, I flip the tv on and a movie is just starting. It's called "Unstoppable"! Casey dear, I'm not sated anymore! (Hint hint). Yes Amanda, you've helped unleash the beast in me, here me Roar! Ok this shouldn't be all about me so, Casey dear, what's happening between Roz & Augie? Oh by the way speaking of pictures, when's Amanda going to ask about Tim's image? (Just a thought). Thank you sweetie! Loving Hugs & Wet Kisses, Talia
Author's Response: As much as Talia loves her new female body, I don't think she's too worried about how Tim looked. lol I think Amanda would only ask if Talia brought up the subject, and since she's read Amanda's journal, she knows about Harry's picture.
Date: 01/12/14 11:27 am Title: Chapter 58 Helping Another Twofer
OMG,unbelievably you chapters are getting better,when does she make a porn vid,does our girl come out of retirement?
Author's Response: I hope they are getting better. I began this on a whim, so I did not take so much care with the earlier chapters. Now I spend about twice as much time on each chapter trying to make it better.
Date: 01/12/14 10:09 am Title: Chapter 58 Helping Another Twofer
(Sniffle sniffle). Tears, lots an' lots of tears, tears of joy! (Snifflie giggles). Yes yes yes, YESSSSS! Oh f**k YES! Oh Amanda! Thank you so much for inviting me to L.A.! Casey dear, I think Talia might want to watch a vid shoot (actually Tim does to see if he can rap his thoughts around the "doing a guy" thing!). Thank you sweetie! ;) Loving Hugs and Wet Kisses, Talia
Author's Response: *laughing* As usual, you have anticipated some of what I've already written but not posted yet.
Date: 01/11/14 02:06 pm Title: Chapter 57 Suspicion Confirmed
You know Casey dear, when I discovered you posted this chapter I was sitting on the edge of the bed cross legged reading "Amanda's" journal! (Giggling Profusely!). Oh Amanda's been so wonderful, I can't imagine what I'd have done without her, but I'm a quick study soaking it all in! (LOL). Girls night with Julie and Roz was fun. I think Roz's in love, every thing was Augie this and Augie that! Wonder if I'll ever feel that way about someone. Loving Hugs and Wet kisses! Talia
Author's Response: Love your reviews, as always.
Date: 01/10/14 01:44 am Title: Chapter 56 Possibly Another Twofer
Oh oh oh em gee! (Panting so hard, barely catching my breath!). Can't seem to stop giggling! (Fanning myself with my hand, red hair disheveled and hanging in my face!). Oh oh that was wonderful Amanda! I never knew it could be like this! Casey dear! Thank you sweetie! Loving Hugs & Big Wet Kisses! Talia
Author's Response: kiss back
Date: 01/08/14 10:33 am Title: Chapter 55 Interlude 4
Nice chapter of reflection Casey dear! Yes, Amanda's life has sort of settled into a routine, but I'll bet that's going to change soon! (Insert snicker giggles here!). I think someone's gonna rock her world! (Wink!) Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: Hang on to your socks...uh....stockings.
Date: 01/07/14 07:53 am Title: Chapter 54 Some Issues Resolved
Oh sweetie! I'm sitting here all teary eyed after reading this installment hon! The whole "Harry" photo thing, I think you know! It just sorta hit me as I was reading it!
I love Amanda's relationship with Augie, I have one exactly like it! I think I like the idea of Augie & Roz, I say go for it too! Casey dear, thank you dear one! Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: Always happy when you're pleased, dear.
Date: 01/03/14 02:50 am Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
Hello, Casey! I think that we have had a meeting of minds a couple of times when you were responding to my discussion topics. They involved the need for reviews and a two-way dialogue between author and reader. I am a different kind of writer than you. My stories are shorter -- I believe the longest is around four thousand words. They can be bizarre, for example, INSIDE HER BRA, but they are sometimes romantic and moralistic, or both. You have a much longer breathing span as a writer. COPING is the first story of yours that I've read, and I take off my hat with admiration. They are beautifully written and detailed. And I must say that you are really living out your fantasies as a "secret girl." Best wishes. MB
Author's Response: I just looked at a couple of yours, sweetie, and I'll read the rest over the next few weeks. I am a voracious reader of nearly everything, so I've always preferred longer, more developed stories. When I first began reading TG fiction, I'd feel let down by shorter ones and would re-write them in my mind, expanding and making them fit my fantasies, which is why I rarely read shorter ones now. I'd hate to plagiarize. Coping is my first foray away from more crossdress stories, and it has been quite a ride. I'd originally planned no more than 5 or so chapters, but Amanda just kept driving me on, although the end is now in sight, believe it or not. We all read these stories for the plot, fantasizing about how we'd react to that situation, but the stories here that grab me are the ones with real character development. Even stylized characters must develop at least somewhat realistically, or I quickly get bored. When I finally finish Coping, I'd like to go back and do a sequel to The Resort, my first story.
Date: 01/02/14 11:08 am Title: Chapter 52 Always the Bridesmaid
Oh sweetie! So happy that "bastard" is dead, but if not Amanda then who? Harley maybe? Anywho, so happy for Dana & Shelby! Nice wedding scene by the way! Are you sure Flora's not a "two-for? Nice chapter Casey dear! Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: Flora was already ruled out. She didn't recognize the test phrases. Love you, sweetie.
Date: 12/28/13 02:22 pm Title: Chapter 51 Picking up the Pieces
Hmmm.... Seems Amanda's just living day to day now. Sure there's the two new business ventures, but other than that, just living day to day, cold and calculating. So Casey dear, will Amanda find love? Will she find who or what started all this? Will May be making another appearance? I know we'll all find out in do time! This far into the story its easy to forget somethings. I have a couple thoughts I'll PM you about sweetie. Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: To answer your questions....some yesses and some nos. You decide which is which.
Date: 12/24/13 02:25 pm Title: Chapter 50 Interlude 3
Oh Amanda, it will happen, when you least expect it to! (At least that's what I keep telling myself, LOL!). It shouldn't be hard for Amanda to find sex when she needs it, love though is a whole other story. I still can't believe Harley turned out to be such a MOMMA'S boy! Maybe Kate can hook Amanda up at one of the charity functions or something, just a thought. Casey dear I promise I'll get to the e-mail later today or tomorrow hon. Loving Hugs Talia
Date: 12/20/13 12:59 pm Title: Chapter 49 The World Keeps Turning
OMG! I just want to wrap my arms around her, and hold her as she cries, hold her til the fear and hurt subsidies! Oh Amanda dear, so sorry it didn't work out. Who'd of thought he was such a mama's boy!
If he really loved you, he would've been right behind you when you left, not just calling over the phone for two days! Casey dear, I'm thinking the snooty bitch needs to be humbled and her social status taken down a notch or two! If Amanda ever does decide to take him back, there better be lots of groveling involved!!!! Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: Don't hold back, Taarpa, say what you really feel. lolol
Date: 12/15/13 07:15 pm Title: Chapter 48 Domesticated
Oh Casey, sounds like Amanda's finally living the dream! I just hope it lasts. Happy that a little more info about his rents has come forth. I guess maybe he is all that! And yes there is just a little twinge of jealousy! (Snicker giggle). Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: I knew it. lol Don't forget the email.
Date: 12/13/13 04:37 am Title: Chapter 47 Steady Girlfriend
Whoa there cowboy, not so fast! Aunt Talia here wants to know what other skeletons may lie within the back of your closet first! Amanda dear you may think you love him, but you darn well better be sure before you commit to this big step sweetie! And what
do we really know about his parents? I just think this is how May would react as well if she were still here! Casey dear, I really do want Amanda to be happy, just think it's a touch to soon for this. Sorry for being an over protective Auntie! Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: Amanda appreciates your concern.
Date: 12/12/13 11:26 pm Title: Chapter 46 Harley
Oh oh my ! "Take me home and take me!". Bird watching my @ss, I think that cat eat the canary! (Giggling profusely). Well Casey dear this catches me up to date for now. Nice chapter sweetie! I'm sure we'll find out more about Harley soon enough! Loving Hugs Talia
Author's Response: Little bit of jealousy there, sweetie? Like to have Harley yourself? lol
Date: 12/12/13 07:04 pm Title: Chapter 45 The Class
Now who would've thought a photography class would be so exciting! (LOL!). I think Amanda just might be in love! (Happy giggling). Just one question Casey dear; when is she going to give him the "TEST"? Loving Hugs Talia
Date: 12/12/13 04:02 pm Title: Chapter 43 Another Round of the Holidays
Hi Casey! Happy Amanda & Margie got together for new years. Being alone for the holidays really does suck! Fiona & Sid tying the knot makes her family complete again. Seems everyone's moving on except Amanda. I hope her desire for vengeance doesn't consume her. Still plodding along sweetie, I hope to catch up soon! Loving Hugs Talia
Date: 12/09/13 02:04 pm Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
I think she better be careful
I have so many questions
Like is he the son of her lawyer
If so he is probably with her for the money
And if she has him us she still going to kill May's killer
Don't keep us waiting
Author's Response: lol. You're trying to think ahead as far as I do.
Date: 12/05/13 05:23 pm Title: Chapter 42 Adjusting to New Circumstances
Sorry Casey, RL's been cutting into my reading time, just read this chapter. Margie could be a lovely diversion for a while, but with everyone else pairing off, I'll bet Amanda's hunger will grow for a meaningful relationship. Dana & Shelby have seemed to really hit it off after the "Twins Weekend". Fiona & Sid are really happy, as are Kate & Ronald. Now as for this revelation about May, one has to wonder just what else she had her hands in? Hmmm.... maybe her and Amanda's chance meeting in the beginning wasn't really by chance at all? Hmmm. Still tagging along Casey, loving hugs, Talia
Author's Response: Just keep guessing, sweetie. lol
Date: 11/27/13 09:15 am Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
Ugh.... I hate you sometimes when I notice updates at 4 in the morning...
Your beautiful story keeps me awake most nights and I lose sleep because I am mesmerized by your words time and time again. I look forward to many moresleepless nights reading this!
Author's Response: You just gave me the biggest chuckle I've had all week. From 3-5 am is when I do almost all my writing and posting, so get used to it. lol Seriously, thank you for your kind words, and I hope you continue to enjoy Amanda's adventures.
Date: 11/26/13 02:51 pm Title: Chapter 41 Cupid Strikes. Twice.
Casey dear, Fiona? Really? Not that I hadn't thought of it, but oh wow! So happy for Fiona, I hope the reality lives up to her dreams! And yeah, I think May would be pleased as well. As for Sweet Julie, I just hope she doesn't lose herself in this all to new relationship with Jay. I think it can be a good pairing as long as she's not rushed (forced) into doing anything she's not comfortable with. Ok dear our girl's going to get awfully lonely with Fiona taking on a motherly role in her life. (I know, I know, I need to start writing). Nice chapter sweetie, loving Hugs, Talia
Author's Response: Lots of huge changes coming for Amanda. Stay tuned.
Date: 11/22/13 03:00 pm Title: Chapter 40 A Test and A Blossoming
Things are going along just swimmingly! (Giggle giggle). Loved the Julie scenes, so happy for the girl! Happy Daddy's making progress. A little disappointed Ford checked out "normal"(so to speak), we all know Ford's anything about normal! (LOL). All in all a lovely chapter sweetie, but I sense storm clouds on the horizon. Thank you Casey! Loving Hugs, Talia
Author's Response: I thought you'd like the Julie sequences. Don't forget to send me that email.
Date: 11/22/13 02:12 am Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
I really love the pacing in this story, real good rhythm
Author's Response: Thank you. I'd originally planned about 10 or so chapters, but to get a feel for the characters, it seemed I needed to add more details from day to day events.
Date: 11/21/13 03:14 am Title: Chapter 39 Interlude 2
I'm very much enjoying all the chapters, even the sad ones. I like that Amanda/Harry spend time on introspection, that rings true for her/their situation. One thing: as satisfying as it might be be for Amanda to kill The Bastard, the drunk that got Mae, I don't want Amanda to go there. Perhaps she changes her mind, or gets a 'near hit' and reconsiders, or settles on other revenge, social scandal, trying to ruin his reputation or finances or similar. Lastly, whatever Agency brought Amanda & Harry together just might get Very Annoyed if she killed. Thanks for a very good read!
Author's Response: I agree about the introspection. I think someone in Amanda's position would spend a great deal of time, more time than most people, thinking about her situation. About the revenge...I know how I have it planned out, but things rarely turn out as I plan. Amanda somehow takes control and changes things. So I'm not completely sure what will happen myself.
Date: 11/20/13 10:26 am Title: Chapter 39 Interlude 2
Well written,a nice outline for what's coming!
Author's Response: When I considered writing the first interlude I thought that someone in Amanda's situation would have to stop and take stock periodically. Just seemed more real to me.

A time for soul searching & self-accessment. Yes, Amanda's come a long way in two years, but where to go from here? Interesting thought on twofers, can't wait to see if Ford checks out! Amateur Free-lance photographer could work to Amanda's advantage on the project. Oh Casey dear, always left wanting more! Loving Hugs, Talia
Author's Response: She'll be searching for twofers for quite some time, I think.

I think this story was great, until she entered the porn buisness. Completely ruined a good story with too much sex
Author's Response: Sorry that wasn't your thing. I debated about ending the story before she did, but since it's my fantasy, I decided to go ahead rather than begin a new story. Thanks for checking it out, though.

Walking through my office, Dana spied the picture of Harry, stopped and picked it up.
"Wow!" she said. "Who'd this? Your latest boyfriend? He's hot!". "Um, no," I replied. "That's Uncle Harry, my favorite uncle."
"Goody!" she said, replacing the picture. "Then you can set me up with him."She apologized with a sigh when I told her he was no longer among the living (big internal Harumph from Harry here), and we continued to our play time.
I was actually giggling while reading this!!!! (With happy tears) Thank you sweetie! Love the plan for operation-"new step mom". With Dana's help, I think Sid's enjoying it too! Now as for operation-"kill bastard", I hope Amanda's real careful! Umm oh, by the way, how's Kate and Ronald doing? Just wondering's all. Always do a happy dance when a new chapter appears!
Thank you Casey! Loving Hugs, Talia
Author's Response: I thought you'd like that, sweetie, and thanks again for the idea that Amanda didn't know what Harry looked like. Amanda will be careful. There are no plans for Amanda in prison chapters in the works.
Date: 11/13/13 02:47 pm Title: Chapter 37 Fiona, Sissy Ford, and a Visit from May
Casey dear, I'm smiling and I'm sure you know why! (Giggles Taarpa). Wonderfully imaginative way to introduce May to Harry! Hmm... if Harry can manifest himself like that..... just hmmmm. Sorry, now you have my imagination in high gear! (Giggles again!). I see they've managed to put Ford (or should I say Flora) in touch with his feminine side with great success. Sweetie, you've really out done yourself on this one! Loving Hugs, Talia
Ps. Uncle Harry picture, brilliant!
Author's Response: Thank you sweetie, and thank you so much for the idea about Amanda wanting to know what Harry looked like. *kisses*
Date: 11/10/13 02:06 pm Title: Chapter 36 Double Your Pleasure
Wow u out did yourself again,awesome,just awesome,can't say anymore,I don't know how you could write anything better!
Author's Response: Thank you so much again. Encouragement like this from fans really keeps me going.
Date: 11/10/13 01:18 pm Title: Chapter 36 Double Your Pleasure
I could eat Thai all day! Yeah, me too! Fiona's Therapy, how wonderful. So the girls are going to make Ford over into a girl. This should be interesting.
If there is in fact a girl personality within him as I've speculated in previous chapters, will this be a telling moment? Still morning my Crazy Aunt (sniffling).
Thank you Casey, will PM you soon! (Hugs) Taarpa
Author's Response: I thought what better test of Julie's makeover skills than Ford. lol
Date: 11/08/13 04:29 pm Title: Chapter 35 Trying to Survive
I think I'll be in morning for a while. I'm gonna miss my crazy aunt! (Sniffle). You did manage to make me smile a little near the end of this chapter though, thank you Casey. I see Fiona sent Amanda some therapy (in the form of twins). With Loving Hugs for Amanda & Sid, Talia
Author's Response: Too many stories ignore painful things that happen in real life. I hope this one is a little more realistic.
Date: 11/06/13 11:59 am Title: Chapter 34 World Turned Upside Down
OMG! Oh no you didn"t! Tell me you didn't? (Sniffle sniffle!). Stifled shock slowly replaced with open sobs...... sure! Go head! Take us on an emotional rollercoaster! Grrrrr.... SSS She's gone? Sniffle.......
Author's Response: Honestly, I struggled against that, but Amanda said it must be.
Date: 11/06/13 06:28 am Title: Chapter 34 World Turned Upside Down
You can't why may no sshe to important please tell me it only an accident that she is hurt but alive
Author's Response: Amanda controls this story, I just write it down. Unlike a Fairy Tale, life has obstacles in store that we have to deal with.
Date: 11/03/13 04:15 am Title: Chapter 33 Fiona and May Point the Way
Mmmm.... The smell of cinnamon..... Well this was a nice distraction for Amanda (and Harry for that matter). Casey dear, I'm going to PM you with my thoughts sweetie! Hugs, Taarpa
Author's Response: I've always loved the scent of cinnamon. If you recall in the earlier scenes at the beach, there was the scent of coconut, another of my favorites. And of course in nearly every chapter is the scent of sex and p****.
Date: 10/30/13 12:00 pm Title: Chapter 32 Educational Trip with Fiona
Excellent chapter,love where u r going with the characters,looks like a lot of fireworks and fun coming,great job!!
Author's Response: I think after all the time Harry and Amanda have now been together, it's logical that they feel comfortable with their shared body and mind, and will be willing to explore some new things.
Date: 10/30/13 03:10 am Title: Chapter 32 Educational Trip with Fiona
Casey dear, I love what Amanda's doing with Julie here. Kate & Ronald getting hitched, awesome! Roz & Julie may have a history (past or future? ). Oh and one more thing, can I go on the next shopping trip? Pretty pwease? Hugs, Taarpa
Author's Response: I'm sure Amanda would adore having you on the next trip. She'd just love to have another Barbie Doll to dress up.
Date: 10/27/13 01:39 pm Title: Chapter 31 Ready to Conquer the New Year
"So shut up and buy nice things!". Nice! So happy for Ronald & Kate! Now to see what makes Julie tick. This is going to be so much fun! Julie's going to be like a kid in a candy store. Ms. Thompson, lovely as always. Hugs, Taarpa
Author's Response: Thank you.
Date: 10/25/13 05:39 am Title: Chapter 30 Getting through the Holidays
Wow Casey! This one gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling too! I know how Amanda feels though, not having a significant other on the holidays sucks! I guess Ronald & Kate could be good to, but I's hoping to find someone for Fiona, ah well. Thanks sweetie, enjoyed this one. Love Taarpa
Author's Response: Will Fiona find someone? Will Amanda find someone? Will Dana find someone? Will Jay find someone? Keep reading, sweetie. lolol
Date: 10/25/13 02:47 am Title: Chapter 1 Rise and Shine
I still love this story! You are a great writer, but please don't take so long to post the next chapter! I was getting worried something happened!
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I try to write some every day, but you know how it is. Sometimes my other life gets busy. I've found that I do best while working on 3 chapters at once. When I finish a chapter, I let it sit undisturbed while I write the next one. When I've written the second one, I go back and re-read the first one for continuity problems. Then I write he 3rd one. Before I go back and post he first one, I give it a final proofreading. In addition, I have notes for 2 or 3 more chapters beyond number 3, just situations that I've thought of that I may or may not end up including. I'll keep them coming as long as Amanda and Harry keep telling me their story.
Date: 10/17/13 01:22 pm Title: Chapter 29 May's Vid
Oh oh my, our crazy Aunt May's still got it! (Giggles Taarpa!). I know Fiona says there was only one man she could ever love, but really how could she really know unless she tries? I still think they awed to set up Fiona and Ronald at see what happens. Anyway, thank you Casey! Still awesome! (Hugs) Taarpa
Author's Response: I have plans for Fiona. Keep reading.
Date: 10/17/13 10:14 am Title: Chapter 29 May's Vid
Wow,you wrote a great chapter,I loved it,I thought you were going to the ford in the bed with them,o well,it's a thought!
Author's Response: Gotcha, Roadbandit! This was a LESBIAN video. Having Ford in it would have made as much sense as....well....as having a man in a lesbian video. lolololol
Date: 10/14/13 01:15 pm Title: Chapter 28 And the Winner Is....
Hmmm, well Bella will never be the same, she may well be disappointed with any intercourse she has after all this though. Oh oh oh my, Judy (the other winner) wants May & Amanda to perform in her fantasy vid. This should be AWESOME! And how about that Kate! Just knew she'd be doing a vid, and this was the perfect excuse for doing it. The question is now that she's had a little taste, will she do more? (Giggles Taarpa). Nice chapter Casey, so what's next hon? (Hugs) Taarpa
Author's Response: Kate and Bella have more to come.
Date: 10/11/13 03:01 pm Title: Chapter 27 A mimi-May?
Casey, what can I say, Amanda's amazing! Here's a wild thought, maybe get Ronald & Fiona together?
Could work if a devious plot was put together by May and Amanda to see if there compatible. Thanks hon, still lovin' this. Hugs, Taarpa
Author's Response: Never can tel what will happen. I'm always writing 2 or 3 chapters ahead of what is posted. lol
Date: 10/08/13 03:19 am Title: Chapter 26 The Contest
Phenomenal. I can't tell whether I'm going to be sad when this story ends, or super happy. Loving it.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I feel the same way about when the story finally ends (if it ever does lol). I had planned on this being a story of about 5-10 chapters, but Amanda has shouldered me aside and completely taken over. I have outlined the plot in my mind about 5 chapters ahead, but they never end up going as I plan. I've completely given up and just let Amanda tell her story however she wants to. When I began, I'd originally paired up Amanda and Larry Douchebag who would fall in love and get married, but.....I don't think people believe me when I say I have no idea whatever where this is going.
