Yep. The update is coming. I had class this morning and I was a bit behind schedule before class; so I couldn't do it then.

I love my evil cliffhangers. :evillaugh:

Sani is pretty awesome. :) I love how Tony just basically accepts what's happening and goes along with it... maybe a bit reluctantly, but I suppose he doesn't have much choice at the moment. Can't wait to see how he explains it all to Gibbs. ;)

Tony got flung into the whole mess without much option. He had a man tell him that something strange was going on and he had just seen something strange and then, Tim's life depends on whether or not he believes him. Hard to deal with all that, but he had to accept it.

Telling Gibbs is going to be an adventure. :)

Yeah, I imagine telling Gibbs would be an adventure :lol2:

I loved how Sani convinced Tony. Nothing says "there's something really weird going on" like walking through a wall ;D

Something tells me this plan is going to get a bit complicated...

Complicated? No! ;D

Sani has a mischievous streak in him. Why just tell a story if you can demonstrate it instead? :)

I suspect Sani knew Tony wouldn't believe otherwise...

To borrow from one of my reviewers, curse your sudden but inevitable cliffhanger!

The image I had in my head was creepy, but I wasn't sure if I communicated it to the written word very well. I'm glad you found it creepy. :yes:

I don't think Gibbs should be so skeptical. He talks to Mike Frank's ghost, after all :lol2:

I liked the conversations between Tony and Tim, Sani and Tim, and Lapahie and Tony and Tim. Tony's "correct me again and I will smack you" made me giggle, because that just sounded like something he'd say.

Aw, come on, I want to know what the skinwalker said... ;D

I hadn't thought of it that way, Lia. ;D But it's not just ghosts they're talking about. It's witches and skinwalkers and ghosts.

I liked the running gag of Tim correcting Tony's werewolf. It was a way of keeping the story from becoming too dour...and when there are implications of cannibalism, fratricide, as well as witchcraft...it could use some lightening.

It was a last attempt to get into Tim's mind, and Lapahie wasn't interested in helping the skinwalker do that in any way.

Finally caught up, and really loved this story. Creepy, but in a good way. (And I hate creepy, so for me to like it is really unusual.)

This line for me really stood out:

Quote:
if you focus on the possibility of failure, you miss the beauty of the possibility of success


Wonderful story, and I love how the epilogue demonstrates Tim's "new normal" after this experience.

Thanks! I'm not as much into creepy, either, but I know Lia is. ;D

I'm glad you liked it. Tim isn't going to be the same as he was, and Sani doesn't mind it at all. ;D

I loved the connection you kept between Tim and Sani. It was a cool way to end the story.

Great fic! Thanks so much for writing it. It was definitely right up my alley ;D

Thanks, Megan! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :yes:

I had to think about the right way to end it a bit, Lia. And I like the idea that Sani is going to keep teaching Tim more. I'm thrilled that you liked it...since it was written for you. ;D

I'm so behind in reading this story cuz I was out of town. So, trying to catch up. Just got done with chapter 8, and I'm curious - is the "right place" something you researched, or a place you created for the purpose of the story? I find it very interesting!

I created the right place for the story, although the things that happen there are from my research. :)

Finally finished! Loved the details of this, and the great characters. I wasn't sure about Sani when he wanted Tim to meet him at midnight, but I'm glad he was on hand, especially with the corpse poison!

Really well done. I'm sure it's right up Lia's alley!

Thanks, Colleen! Sani was supposed to be a mystery at first. I didn't want people to know what to think of him. I'm glad you liked it!

A bit late... :-/

I've read this story before you started posting, as you know, and wrote down reviews per chapter as I progressed.

So, my observations for chapter 4:
Okay, Tim shouldn't have let the secretive Lapahie get under his skin and instead act a little more professional.
Furthermore, I didn't know what to think about him going to talk to the old man without telling his partner.
Eventhough I question Tim's agreement to follow Sani.

And chapter 5:
What was in that flask? Peyotl?
Weird things going on, there, like the unseen yet felt resistance as if he was "walking through a wall"? Into another dimension, probably.
As for Sani: he still seems unreal to me. Like a spirit. A good one. :yes: Nope, doesn't strike me as evil.
I can only think of the potion Tim had as a means of getting him into the right mindset to be more open and accepting to the Diné story.
And Sani's story, I have to admit, drew me in just as it did Tim.

Oh, and I love the banner, BTW. ;D :aabump:

Anyhow, now that I've found the time... :D

I was a bit surprised, when reading about Tim inhaling the dust in chapter 6, that the Diné didn't know about this strategy applied by the naaldlooshii. :huh:

And now Tim's on borrowed time... :'( Who'll be able to save him? Tony (who now knows Tim isn't a nutcase after all - pfew!) ? Lapahie? Sani the spirit?

Chapter 7:
Oh dear... Tim's definitely in a real bad way once again.
Boy! I wished I was a fly on the wall when Tony saw Sani walk right through the wall! :lol2: :evillaugh:

I'll return. :yes:

Goodness! Amazing story once again. I've learned stuff I hadn't heard of before. Oh, the sweet folklore. :) How much longer can those narratives be preserved for future generations? The ones that never made it to paper/internet?
Anyway, food for thought. At least, for me. :D

Loved what you've done with this story. As soon as you picked the prompt set, I had an inkling you were going to do a story like this and am so glad you didn't disappoint. I love the story within the story format. It all was nicely paced and good that they all backed each other up in the end. You did a better job than I could ever have done with that prompt. Glad you took it.

LOL... Even though we were thinking along the same way. It would've been very different. But that's the good thing about these things.

Sorry I never replied to your comments, Linda! I missed them! I love reading the folklore and mythology of other cultures. You learn a lot about them by learning their myths. :yes:
