Misssing your updates. Hope to see one soon because I can't wait to see what happens with Eponine visiting Enjolras in prison.

Hi you :-). Sorry for the late reply! Have been busy the last couple of days. But my vacation’s almost over, so hopefully I can get back to the swing of things with my writing. Thanks so much for the message!

An open note to readers of fanfic

emmagrant01:

Sometimes I stare at the computer screen when the words don’t want to come and I think, “Fuck, who am I kidding? This is terrible writing, and this story is shit, and no one cares, anyway.”  And I close the window and go do something else.

But every now and then I get an amazing, heartfelt, beautiful comment from someone who loved something I wrote, and it reminds me that, at least for that one person, I did write something worthwhile. And so I open the window again and I write one sentence, and then another, and then I start to find my way again.

So on behalf of all fanfic writers everywhere, I want to say thank you, thank you so much, to all of the readers who take the time to leave a comment and tell us that something we wrote mattered to you, that it brightened your day or made you laugh or cry or get horny or whatever.

Please don’t think we’re ever bothered by your comment, or that we don’t want to hear it, or that what you have to say isn’t important enough. It means so, so much. And on some days, it’s what keeps us going.

True story.

And now I’ve finally found the English version of this book, at a secondhand shop in Brooklyn :-).

I love you and your story and I'm dying because I want an update because I'm addicted.

Awww, you… You are the sweetest! I love reading your reviews. As to an update, well, unfortunately I’m still on vacation and so haven’t had time to write, because I’ve been out all day. But, I am going to have some more time after tomorrow, so I will do my best!

I have to say I read One Inch in two days, all 37 chapters because I simply could not stop reading. Please continue to write more, you're writing is fantastic and I love the progression of all five main characters although I mostly enjoyed Eponine and Enjolras obviously! Also your original characters are brilliant and I loved to see Enjolras having to interact with both other women and children. Please keep writing, it is much appreciated! :)

Ahh, thank you, thank you, thank you! That is so awesome of you to say!

I'm so excited that I've found you! I've been reading your fic since saturday. Now I'm on chapter 35. It's so good. I think the best Enjonine fic ever! You made Enjolras progression so credible... And you look so documented in your fics, you're doing a good reserarch work too. I love your writing. Keep updating because I think I will read the three chapters I have left tonight. I can't wait for what is going to happen next! I think there's going to be some drama at some point...xD

Oh hi! You’re Christina from ffnet, is that right? Thank you so much for your reviews and message! It really makes me feel so appreciated! I am particularly thankful of what you said about Enjolras’ progression being credible. Yes, I certainly took extra care to make sure that it is so. Anyway, I am on a bit of a hiatus at the moment, since I’m on holidays, but shall continue writing soon!

To all my followers who read my fic “One Inch”, guess what I found in a book store in San Francisco (on Valencia St). I wish I’d gotten it, but I didn’t. It’s en français and I’m not good enough in my french to be able to read it.

Anyway, I’m having a blast in my vacation, so unfortunately have not been able to write. But hopefully you stick with me and continue reading when I do!

ONE INCH UPDATE!

choirgirlohs:

Still no Enjonine interaction. But I loved the whole chapter with Enjolras’ dad coming to visit him in prison. It wasn’t the normal relationship I see writers have for the two of them. I feel that in it, the two of them are much more mature with their relationship. It also shows that Monsieur Enjolras isn’t some tyrannical parent; he actually cares about the well-being of his son and genuinely wants to help him out of prison. It was a nice change. And then before any of that happened and the author was describing how Enjolras now craved Eponine’s presence, I was exploding with feels. I can’t wait for the next update that will hopefully have more Enjonine interaction.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, MY DEAREST! I love and appreciate all your reviews. Yes, I was hoping to present sort of a different and more mature relationship between Enjolras and his dad, so I am so glad you noticed that. And, I am definitely planning on an Enjolras and Eponine scene next time up!

Omfs. I'm currently on chapter 25 and I can't seem to stop. It's my new addiction And I start reading it last night. Really, I haven't slept too much because I was gawking at the wonderful story you've managed to create. Like, really. I'm totally impressed by what you've been writing. Specially by Enjolras thought and all those philosophical things he and Éponine discussed. It made me... want to read the books... OM! I feel like Justine. Haha, and how you made Enjonine credible? Amazing! xx

AHHH, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Messages like this are why I keep on writing! I really appreciate it, my dear. And I love that you feel like Justine! Yes, I totally want to read all these books that they’ve been discussing too. I pretty much only found out about them when I’d research each chapter (that is, I’d randomly google French enlightenment thinkers and picked ones whose views I could use in a chapter). I think Condorcet is my favorite, which is why I talk about him the most ;-). Anyway, thanks again!

Already another update?! I THINK YES! Loved that this chapter dealt with Enjolras and him missing Eponine just got my feels all over the place but it was brilliant! I actually do kind of like his dad unlike other fics in which i don't. But, can't wait for more Eponine and Enjolras!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Glad you kinda like his dad. And yes, more Enjolras and Eponine in the next chapter!
