WHAT DOES HE MEAN NO 😭
Oh I AM distraught
What a delight to read, Mark is so funny, and it's even funnier knowing he isn't meaning to be. Beloved Eliot, what did he do?! Treason?! And no lover?????? So many questions!! I missed reading your work. I think it's time for another In Other Lands reread ❤️
obsessed with twenty-four year old elliot. he is so so real
MY FEELINGS!!! I am desperate to know what happens next (and SO curious to know what kind of treason Elliot did that apparently was bad enough to get him EXILED and forced to become a teacher).
Such an intriguing start! But I will be most upset if this short story doesn’t have a happy ending. 😭 But while I wait to see, I’m laughing out loud and loving seeing grownup Elliot.
I’m actually losing my mind!!!! I’m so excited for this!!! 😭😭💗💗💗💗
Indeed there is: https://www.sundaymorningtransport.com/p/tears-waiting-to-be-diamonds-part-7e9
OMG!? Exiled? Treason? "No"!? I need the second part right now and I need a happy ending PLEASE!
Loved this first part! Mark is really fun to read and I love the glimpses to this other culture that was only mentioned in passing during In Other Lands. It was great seeing Elliot again being both the same and grown-up.
Algo, I finished re-reading In Other Lands (my favorite book ever) a couple of days ago just to read these short stories with it fresh i my mind and I loved to see the little refrences to the book like when Elliot says to prefer try to reason with the troll and to learn their language if you can't speak it.
Thank you so much for this!!! I loved it and I’m excited to see what might come next! Mark is such a fun character.
Absolute magic. AH 💕
I'm wondering what horrible crimes the other kids did to be stuck with Elliot
where the hell is luke and why is Elliot so pessimistic (though he normally is). wheres my mans????
I kid you not i spent the last 5 minutes screaming WHERE T F**K IS LUKE!? WHAT HAPPENED
Is there a part 2?
