My best buds and I make an annual trip to our favorite winter cabin, except we have a unique twist on our epic week. Of course, the twist never happened to me until I drew the short straw this year...

If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, then I've already given this story five stars. For the sake of formality, I will say that I love this story. I love the themes involved and the way that you tell it. I love that things aren't coming easy to Ashley, but I hope that she finds happiness. The events of chapter 25 reflect a situation that I'm in right now where I'm out of touch with a former partner, so thank you for that.

Author's Response: Thank you ImaginaryGuest!!! I am a very big fan of your latest work, so the admiration is mutual. The events of Ashley's life are adapted, I have came to realize, from situations I too have experienced. It is very hard to watch that those you love 'move on' with their lives, or think that thought, especially when you realize you haven't. I didn't want to gloss over Ashley's journey and make a story where she becomes a girl, loves it, and that is that. I don't feel our own lives play out that way, and it wouldn't do her justice to give her a idealistic story. So, I very much appreciate you "love that things aren't coming easy to Ashley", that makes me very, very happy :)

Drunk Ashley is adorable. I'm glad that she's starting to find herself.

Author's Response: Drunk Ashley let her subconscious speak, just a bit too much :) I agree, totally adorable.

Two chapters of a Winter Trip's Twist in the space of a week? What have we done do deserve this blessing?

I can't help but feel that, in spite of their shared experiences, Ashley and Brad aren't really right for each other, but that may just be because a few things about Brad set off warning sirens in my own head.

Author's Response: To deserve this blessing? Have just been very motivated to tell her story, with such great fans like you! I don't want to give much away at this point in time, but I will say that Brad is a crucial part of what ends a Winter Trip's Twist. Wait and see, the conclusions are developing right now, as slowly as they come with my style of story telling!

I've cracked the ending! Jack still needs to give Ashley her carabiners, as promised! So they're going to end up back together again! ... please... :(

Dang what a chapter! This one definitely hit home some feelings for me that Brad and Ashley aren't exactly right for each other, but he does seem to be what she needs right now.

I'm guessing that the mystery visitor is Ben, but I suppose we'll see. Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: You totally guessed it ;) I had already written the chapter when I saw your comment. I was like... Was it that obviously haha? I hoped I could be a little more sneaky, but maybe I was wrong :) Good job on figuring out who!

Nailed it!

I still don't like Brad, though, but I think Ashley is starting to find the people who are a good influence on her.

Author's Response: Ashley is definitely developing the healthier support network she needs to get by!

Following up on your comment about an alternate ending, I had actually thought about something similar in the very early brainstorming stages of "A Simple Favor." Namely, after a romantic getaway in a lovely vacation destination, the main character has to change back into a guy and cut off the relationship that he had developed with his best friend. However, then the best friend turns around and changes his sex, becoming the main character's new girlfriend, so they can continue their romance in that way.

I'm all for Jack changing into a girl just to restore their friendship, but I'm also a huge Jack x Ashley shipper haha.

Author's Response: Haha, that was what was exactly as a possible plot point. Would have worked out very nicely in "A Simple Favor", as well as a "Winter Trip's Twist" (obviously that is not going to be the real reason. I guess the cat is out of the bag as to the complete plot of the alternative timeline I will write after the epilogue of the main story; maybe with some twists on it ;) As a side note, I too am a Jack and Ashley fan! Way more healthier of a relationship

Wow! Really great chapter! The character of Brad was handled really well and he has clearly played an important role in Ashley's life. Although I'm glad that it's over.

Hmmm. Leaving that note on the bookshelf, though... right where Lisa might stumble across it.

Author's Response: Thank you ImaginaryGuest! Brad is truly a combination of people in my own life. He is clearly very dedicated and persistent regarding what he wants and he tries to put up a strong face. Beneath that is a much more complicated picture. He truly believes that acting one way will make it so, even when that one path may not be best for him or the others around him. On another level, he has a tendency to use people for his goals, even when there is the possibility they may be harmed in the process. It is a chance he is willing to take! I am sure we all know a "Brad" in our lives! As for your second topic, just wait and see what happens ;)

Wonderful writing and fun characters. I love the way the narrative is going.

Jeremy Sanders had certain expectations for his college life, but none of them involved becoming a loving girlfriend to his douche of a roommate. Can he resist the role he is being forced into or will he be trapped as a sexy college coed for the rest of his days?

Really great character arc. I thought it was incredibly hot how well both consensual and non-consensual sex were used in the story. I can't wait for your next story.

Calvin is a chimera — a shapeshifter — whose college major involves a year spent as the opposite sex. Becoming a woman isn’t easy, but being one may be even harder. And when Calvin, now Cate, stumbles upon some secrets she should never have learned, she’ll have to rely on her powers, and her friends, to save the day.

I could be reading too much into a few small hints that I've seen here and there, but I'm starting to think that Calvin was trans.

Author's Response: It probably depends on your definition, and there are as many of those as there are people who use the word. More than anything, I wanted to portray that whatever Calvin is, itís okay to be. Not just okay, but good and valid.

No new chapter in a little while, relative to the usual publication schedule of TCoCC. Hope we'll see more soon. I know I'm not the only one who's excited to read more of Cate's story.

Author's Response: Power outage issues, which are *hopefully* dealt with now. Glad everyone is still interested in the story!

Wonderful, as always. Dang now I'm anxious about Claire! What's she up to?!

I will say that we haven't seen Rob in a while. He might be a good person to talk to about Cate's current anxieties.

Author's Response: Itís true, we havenít seen Rob for a while! Wonder what heís up to? Thanks so much for the feedback!

Date: 10/04/18 Title: Chapter 49: Chapter 49

Wow. These two chapters are, sadly, very topical right now, even though I'm sure they were written months ago. Unfortunately, they'll probably continue to be topical for many years to come. You handled Cate's close call with rape and the recovery that followed very well.

Author's Response: Written months ago, and set up as early as Chapter Two. When I was plotting out the story, I knew I needed to touch on that particular aspect of the female experience, but it was easier to outline than to write. I canít tell you how many times I revised and rewrote those chapters, and even now Iím not sure I got it right. At the very least, I did not want to approach the subject lightly, or to try to handle it in one little episode, and never mention it again. Anyway, thank you for your support.

Wow! I'm guessing that Claire is, in fact, "Claire's mother" as she was described to us many chapters ago. Perhaps coming back to relive a childhood that she never had. Amazing writing, as always, and I have to say that chapters in this story are interconnected in ways that chapters rarely are in amateur works. I believe that it's been brought up before how Claire seems to be a sort of motherly figure to Cate at times, and now I suppose we know why.

Can't wait for a good heart-to-heart between Claire and Cate. Oh, and a romantic walk on the beach with Sam!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much! The planning phase of this one took over my life, and thatís part of what made me take a break in Belmont House. (Which I will be coming back to after all of this.) Thanks again for the compliment; truly appreciated!

Excellent chapter. The fact the Cate wants to ask Jen's permission before moving forward with Sam really shows how much she has matured.

Dan watched Kristie Rose every day, she was his world, his goddess. So when he wakes up as her he needs to figure out where she went and how much he actually knows about her.

This is certainly a departure from your average story on this site. I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes from here and how you handle the unsympathetic protagonist.

Author's Response: I never really thought of Dan as unsympathetic. Now that I'm rereading this story I can definitely see that. Mostly I just tried to stay true to the character which I think definitely impacted this story. I'm glad you're enjoying this, hope you enjoy it to the end.

Two best friends witness an unexplainable transformation in childhood. Now, with adulthood rapidly approaching, they reunite by chance. But are they the same people they once were? And what does this bizarre change mean going forward?

It's really interesting to read a story that's not told from the perspective of or with intimate knowledge of the thoughts and feelings of the transformee. I'm really excited to see where this goes. Keep writing!

Author's Response: That's one of the parts of this that I enjoy so much, it opens a lot of possibilities up I feel in the manner in which this story is told. Or, at the very least, it makes it fun to write.

Wow. I love it. Ally is extremely believable as someone who had their sex changed suddenly in the middle of their childhood. My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next chapter. I implore you to continue writing soon!

Author's Response: I'm writing quickly as I can! The next chapter is actually complete, but it won't be posted until I finish the subsequent chapter (and do some edits.) Hopefully no more than a few days.

You handled the reunion very well. One can't help but feel that Tim, in spite of his good intentions, really has no idea what Allison has been and is currently going through. Hopefully he becomes more understanding before he makes her problems worse.

Author's Response: They need to figure out how much they trust each other. That's something I wanted to capture in this story, reconnecting with friends is usually great, but there's always this intermediary period where you need to gauge if they're...still worth being friends with.

Very nicely written. It's exciting to see a story that explores the darker side of transformation, especially when it happens to someone who has been hurt by their dysphoria throughout their life. I'm looking forward to seeing Kalia adapt to her new reality. Hopefully, though, she'll eventually come to wonder whether or not that life is really a good path for her to be on.

I predict that the woman with the wings will be making a return, possibly as a heroic counterpoint to Kalia, but I'm excited to read on as you continue to write.
