Special Thanks: To my wonderful betas [personal profile] cjharknessgirl and [personal profile] faithharkness for sticking with me and helping me push this out of my fingertips. Without their encouragement, this would have stayed in limbo for all time.

Not that I’m aware of. Why?

Re: Goings on

Ianto and I are in Sydney for a conference. He sends his regards. So does Donna. So does Andy. Yesterday we went to the opera. We went backstage afterward to congratulate the performers. While we were there, we noticed that in the catwalks were some monkeylike creatures. They might have been some sort of odd Australian natives, but I don’t think that there are any Australian monkeys with green fur and purple tails. The three-eyes thing doesn’t seem to be exactly normal either.

Re: Investigation warranted

That does seem rather odd. We’d better come and take a look.

Do you have any idea how awesome this is?

Absolutely fantastic! I can't tell you how glad I am that you did get this finished, because it was so worth the wait. Everything about this was just wonderful. I love what you did with the prompt and it's a fic I'm going to want to read over and over, so I'm definitely snagging the PDF.

I can't say how much I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

I really liked this. I didn't ever know the films, and now I'm going to get hold of them. I loved the way you used all the characters and kept them in character despite it being wildly AU. Adored Myfanwy, I'm now off to google dogs in boots, I never knew they could wear them, the image was so cute!!

Oh look - Australian vacation! Perhaps they can keep away from anything too alien - unless those green and purple three-eyed monkeys are genuine and not a figment of Jack's desire to spend time with old friends away from any chance of their work getting in the way!

Great story from beginning to end!
