Read the 2001 version again in full last night. (First time I'd done so since downloading it originally about a year ago.)

One thing I'd missed the first time around (and therefore thought, incorrectly, that it was a new development when it showed up in the new Chapter One): Tuck's presumably facetious reference to the place where he was supposed to be going as "the J. Thompson Nazi Youth Academy", which eventually tallies with Part 21's reference to "that Thompson place up the road" where the real Eugene Wallace ends up.

Are we supposed to consider the similarity in names between the camp and Jane's establishment a coincidence or is/was there some explanation in the text for it? (I realize Bob, who runs the camp, is identified as one of Jane's former students, but given that his program takes an opposite approach from hers, it hardly seems that he would have named it in her honor.)

I believe it might have been mentioned that Jane loaned Bob the money for setting up his academy, so yes he might have named it for her? Anyone else remember it that way? Or want to go to the trouble of looking. Smile

I recently completed a re-read of the original version I'd archived to my PC and don't see it anywhere. The only mention of a relationship between Jane and Bob was reference to the fact that he was one of her early students and while living with Jane, he apparently fell in love with the area. So much so, that when it was time to open a camp of his own, he decided to do so in the same general area.

Erin, is it possible that you saw an early draft of this rewrite and that is from where you're remembering this loan?

I remember reading in some thread either here on TuckerSpawn or the reader notes page left by that Rachel Greenham last year which indicated she made a few changes to her fanfic "Tuck Squared" based on changes Ellen was planning for the rewrite. Aside from Ellen herself and her sequestered for life editors/proofers, she's probably about the only other person who knows for certain now. And I don't think she's going to say anything unless everyone out there is willing to pay for bodyguards to protect her from the squad of Ninja assassins Ellen has on standby to handle story leaks.

i thought the person who founded the millitary school was a former student of janes who wanted to help children like jane had helped him, but wanted to do it without traumatising the boys like that. He put it in the same city as jane's becouse he liked the area, and he DID have fond memories of his time with jane.

I have no idea where I got that idea. I have seen no advance versions of any of Ellen's stories. Darn! Smile

I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about -- a story where a wealthy widow sold some or all of her late husband's forest-type property to start a camp of some sort. (I think I read it on Nifty a couple of years ago.) But it doesn't seem to be here in the old version of Seasons, and as far as I know I haven't read any of Tigger's stories in the series, so I couldn't have seen it there.

Oh, well...

um, to ask soething horribly rude, but is there an archive of the original tuck season story?

i have looked on the wayback machene, and it has basicly told me to sod off, and it is getting mildly frustrating to have to go on inferance for some other bits and peices ...

that and if seasons follows the same pattern as the main arc seems to be, then Ellen's storys seem to get better as you go though them, after the inital bit of set up.

Seasons version 2 seems to be following this, and since it is apparently quite difrent to version one ....

nm, i guess i am another addict
