  1. Oh, gosh, your two Captain’s stories sound sooo good! I wish I had the time to CP with [? I’ve never before used ‘Critique Parner’ as a verb, so obviously, I don’t know if the phrase would take a preposition] them

      • Yeah! I mean, they say little about era, but it can be assumed present day, so the pieces fit. (I certainyl can’t pick you up on this one, for having an alternate universe has played havok with my query. Calling’ Aidelle’s fiance’ ‘upper-class’ is the best I can get.)
        Indeed, it shall!

      • Mm, I don’t even know the era myself. There are telephones, but the commonest form of long-distance correspondence is letter. A time when school student sex was still shocking, and when less emphasis was placed upon young romantic relationships in general. Or else a cast full of letter-writing propriety-demanding prigs like me 😛
        (Mm, a hard thing to subtly slip into a query.)

      • Hehe, 70s or 80s, then? Maybe even as far back as early 60s. Okay…maybe not 60s…

      • Hehe, I don’t know. And so long as I don’t go into politics I’m hoping it doesn’t matter too much. If a beta reader tells me a definite setting is necessary, I’m willing to go into research-mode; currently I care not. Plenty other concerns to be getting on with 😛
