Thanks for your Werewolf enthusiasm.
Thanks so much for your enthusiastic comment on Psychotherapy, God and Me.
Thanks Daniel for that wonderful foodie comment on Birds of Prayer.
Thanks for the read and comment of Maalox.
Hi, Daniel. Thanks for reading 'Sagacious Abridgment.' I appreciate your insightful comment.
Appreciate the compliment on "The Second Sun," Daniel. As for the science: original research. ;)
Thanks so much Daniel for your thoughtful and profound comment on Fairy Tale in Dacahu.
dear Daniel, thank you very much for commenting on “arachnophobia”. I appreciate it very much.
Thank you for your funny comment on Spaghetti Woman. Any food hanging from beards is funny.
Thank you for your long comment on Reading at the Table and I left you a long one back there. I enjoyed your story Similarities as well.
Dan, thanks for your comment on "Twedes." Insular struck me. My family (not meaning my grandmother's original family) is like a bicycle wheel and we are its spokes, non-intersecting neighbors across coasts, threaded to EMC2 hub.
I'm here again, to thank you for your fine comment on Birds of Prayer. I left a lengthy response there.
I responded with a lengthy note on my wall to your lengthy note on my wall. There are myriad places to post and it's often confusing what's the best place. That was a great comment.
Thank you for your message about Pig Girl and for the fave. I am noticing that you, like me, are new to Fictionaut. It's been an amazing experience and I've only been here two days. Welcome!
Welcome to Fictionaut, Dan. I look forward to reading more of your stories.
