New chapter is out, at the usual place (URL in sig). Now with Added Valerie. Smile (Told you I'd get back to her story...)

Also, the plaintext versions of all chapters are now collected under the main title page node for The Taken. Had to hack the fscking CMS software to show 'em in the right order too... Mad

Proofers-willing, the next chapter should be along pretty quickly; hopefully one or two weeks.

Interesting. I wonder if I'm reading too much in thinking that Valerie, having lived through the Seasons story, has more confidence that she can deflect Jane during the "education" process than is merited, because THIS Jane wasn't part of that series of events, and in fact ended up with her plans in ruins when analogous things happened.

I liked the lead-in on Natasha. I'd been wondering, during Part One, how common that was as a given name in the UK. (My brother did some work on the US version of British vocalist Natasha Bedingfield's CD last year; I don't believe I'd ever seen the name in a UK context before that. In Russian, I believe, it's a nickname, the diminutive for Natalya.)

This chapter enormously altered my perspective on the scope of what is happening in The Taken. I just realized there are at least three plots going, and I am hoping for a fourth. There's Nathan, Jane/Marie, and Valerie, all with something that needs resolution. Can Nathan be helped with Jane's methods and Valerie's interferences? Will Jane and Marie succeed in this new endeavour after the disaster in the States? Will Valerie be able to go home to her universe? - she still carries hope. The fourth I'm thinking of is what finally becomes of Tuck in this universe...

Happy endings...I'm a sucker for happy endings. Will I see four?

Way to go Rachel!!!
