Wondering about her laptop and if Bill will bill Tuck for any help and if so, will wonder about it as he sent Tuck to a boot camp, and not to some place of high society. Will Bill see that Tuck s misplaced?

I don't think that Bill will dun Tuck unless Tuck asks for his expert advice.

I don't know how Tuck sending the Key Logger and other info to his dad will reveal that he's not at boot camp except that Bill would expect that Tuck would not leave the campus where the camp is located since it is supposed to be a quasi military experience.

So I do expect some possibility that Bill Tucker will show up to see what is going on IDK whether he will have a positive reaction to it or a negative reaction to it. It would certainly out Val!

Nah. Think about it:
- Bill knows Tuck took a notebook.
- Bill knows how competent Tuck is.
- Bill sorta *raised* Tuck to look for moneymaking opportunities.

He may wonder how come Tuck found a computer to fix in boot camp, and one belonging to someone who can pay top dollar yet, but not too much -- even back in 1997, the camp admin would be expected to have computers on hand, and an organization like that would likely have some pretty well-to-do people on its board of trustees.

He may assume that Tuck fixed something minor for the camp admin and from there, talked his way into doing freelance consulting for the trustees. It's not too far from the truth.

That is pretty much my take on the issue. The only way Bill will show up is if he feels that Tuck is violating a contract. A way this could happen is if for some reason Val is revealed to him by a third party such as Reggie who may ask Bill to consult as an expert without realizing that Val is Tuck, who has already sent the problem to him.

If Bill does suspect, would he go, or send a party?

Oh, if he suspected something off-kilter, he would go himself, no doubt. He wouldn't send Sarah to investigate, because of her temper; he wouldn't send Mike or Susan, because he wouldn't foist this on the younger generations, and it's ultimately his responsibility; he *might* send Lanier if he was available, but the thing is, Lanier lives down south -- in Louisiana, I believe.

Might he send Debbie and Mike, if he goes and sees that Tuck is not at the boot camp, but another boy? Would be most interesting to see Bill meet Aunt Jane

I'm fairly certain of this: Bill Tucker handles the problems he considers his. He would consider any action that Tuck took to be Tuck's problem unless he felt that Tuck was breaking a contract with him.

No he will not send Mike. Mike is Tuck's brother and would be an ally against Bill. The same is even more true of Debbie. Indeed it is possible that if Val is outed some serious questions will be asked of Debbie.

Not well if he feels that her method is abuse.

Bill would go himself. The problem is that he'd go to the boot camp first and find out that the Eugene there wasn't the right Eugene. A certain amount of hilarity would ensue figuring out where Tuck really went.

Bill showing up on Jane's doorstep demanding to see his son would be interesting, especially if Tuck shows him the contract. Tuck would try to keep the contents of his breakout kit hidden because the dress, makeup, wig and ID would cause Questions To Be Asked.

The Question Tuck doesn't want to answer is, of course, "How long have you been playing at being Valerie?"

No doubt about that. He went along with Debbie 'cause he tended to be the follower in the relationship. But after they broke up... Well I guess he went along with it for the job at the Parkers. What mystifies in a way is him rebounding to Travis. Except that Travis is only minimally connected to anyone else he knows.

Just think about what may happen when/if Bill confronts Jane

If Bill confronts Jane,it will only be after he has evaluated what is happening. IOW he will (if as I posited)come because he's been called (not a long shot as Reggie may have Bill in his Rolodex... after all computer experts of his level are a small community)to consult on the problem.

I can just about see (hear the conversation now...) Reggie calls Bill and says, 'Bill, I've got this thorny problem that I received from an old friend.'

'send it along,' says Bill

Bill receives the problem along with Tuck's notes which identifies that this is the same problem. Except that Reggie identifies the person he received the problem from as Valery Wallace.

From that point much hilarity might ensue Shocked

As well as seeing Jane out of the control that she so enjoys. THAT would truly be a nightmare to replace the one shown in the other story based on Tucky Seasons.

I was looking at the fanfiction on the site and noticed that the Bikini beach crossover is described as being right after Seasons #24. Does anyone know if that still applies or was that in reference to the mythical original version of Tuck season?

In short yes the BB episode that Ellen wrote came after the last episode of the now defunct (you can find it if you look hard enough) version of Tuck Seasons. It seems that there should be several more episodes of the new version of Tuck Seasons before The BB episode could happen.

*If* it will even be possible to fit it under the new continuity...

I mean, there are already some hints that the Big Ending of the original "Tuck Season", even if Ellen does not go in an entirely different direction, might have a different set of actors -- for instance, Evelyn's souped-up Plymouth Roadrunner seems a good fit for replacing [REDACTED]'s car at the Big Ending, and therefore Evelyn herself might be replacing [REDACTED] at the climactic scene.

So, it might be that [REDACTED], [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] don't show up at all, making *impossible* to follow up from that to "Bikini Beach: All Tucked Up."

That's pretty much what I was wondering, I take it no one (other than possibly Ellen) knows the answer to that?

Indeed only Ellen knows the answer to that. At the current time, given the story arc as it is developing, I don't see it headed toward BB All Tucked Up...

I wonder if Val has sufficient grounding in the standard bidding conventions to compete in a bridge tournament. It's my (extremely meager) understanding that communication between partners is limited to numbers and suits during the bidding process and nothing thereafter. I'd find it entirely plausible that the Tucker family would evolve its own bidding conventions but nothing of that sort would be appropriate for play with a random outsider as partner.

Since I know absolutely nothing about bridge I'm not qualified to speculate on this one. A question though... I see that Ellen completed her move but is there some other reason that she is having trouble getting a new chapter up?
