Lord, it’s gone quiet.

Lord Mettlebright’s Man. There have been a handful of private asides, but It’s been unusually quiet in comments lately, and I’m curious why.

Tongue in Cheek. You don’t actually have to comment for me to keep going. I know lots of you love Jacques and care about his outcomes. This is mostly me popping up to ask my own aside. “Hey, are you okay, over there?” If life’s been crazy where you are, please know that I care & hope my stories can somehow keep you company. :: hug ::

  1. Impending demise of my job has me ahh alternating between this is fine, everything is fine and welp who needed a career anyhow, I’ll just go become a cashier at a store because the traditional publishing industry is a bucket of fire right now. Also I’m re-reading the main books (and Songs) in prep for Book 6 so I’m trying to chart out the timeline without getting myself confused. XD

  2. Life is definitely in overhaul mode. TTvTT I’m working on a novel, a novella, a fanfiction (formatted in your honor <3) and an…editing project? While also trying to sew myself an entirely new wardrobe from scratch. And find a job. TTvTT

    …actually, this is clearly the right time to catch up on Lord Mettlebright's Man. I'm sure I need Jacques' sass in my life.

  3. The story is very interesting now, therefore I can wait a few weeks more for our friends in America.
    I am glad he is good with cats, because I think he is a bit like a cat himself.
    And Jacques with babies make my heart melt.

    • We’ll get there, for sure. But I don’t want to skimp on what’s happening at Stately House in my eagerness to move things along. ::waves hands vaguely:: It’s all important!

  4. I love the story now and am always waiting not so patiently for the next installment. I rarely comment because life is a lot right now, trying to work and deal with a very serious health diagnosis. Your stories provide me with a much need dose of sass, joy and hope.

    • Life is good at being unpredictable. I try to be unpredictable, too … but in nicer ways.

      Take care of yourself, yeah? ::hug::

      I’ll keep the doses coming.

  5. The story is great, you’re great, and I am trying to be a good guest and am waiting patiently for the next installment, just like my mama taught me.

  6. you forgot a category I’m sure lots of us socially awkwards introverts (who are often bookworms) would fit right in:
    “I’m actually addicted to your stories, but so unskilled with words I don’t have a clue what to say”

    • You know, this is a huge oversight on my part. We totally need that as a category! (And hey, having been a socially-awkward introvert for much of my life, I can sympathize.)

      New Policy: I shall consider it a compliment whenever Jacques’ latest escapade renders readers speechless (and therefore commentless).

    • When life is crazy, a good story can be a respite. I am inspired to pour more of myself into my work … for all your sakes!

      Hang in there, m’dear. ::hug::

  7. So for my birthday I got covid! Not just me but husband and daughter too. Its basically sleep eat a little and sleep again. I am over the moon(lol) about Jacques and Sonnet but have little energy. Love all your work.

  8. I’m not bored!!! But also don’t hush!! But also life is crazy right now!!! But you’re not needy!!!

    But also I sometimes feel like creators might get bored or annoyed with my incessant “ahhh!!! I love them so much!!!” On every single post 😅😂 So just assume I’m reading and squeeing every time I get to see everyone.

    (Also my mother just had a hip replacement and I’m going to start her on LMM. She’s been rereading the Sagas for the first time since her first read and she enjoying and picking up on so much more. Was gonna wait until LMM was complete before having her read (cause she’s like that) but now with Pimiko coming out, she’s gonna NEED to! Soooo setting it up on my tablet and letting her run wild 😂)

  9. Thank you for the hug. Busy summer, first grandchild born. (She lives 2 hours away so need pictures every day!!) I love the installments & especially Sonnet. ( I could really relate to her taking Vanya to meet family). I re-read from the beginning every few months when I have withdrawal symptoms at the weekends. Really looking forward to Pimiko in October xx

  10. I am a quiet daily reader and I’m just waiting in anticipating and delight, but idk if it’s just me or not but I did notice a change in font recently? it’s a bit hard on the eyes with a white background. Liked the old one (if it did change) but it could just be my browser maybe?

  11. Keep going.
    Life has somehow decided to be everything everywhere all at once, so stepping over to the calm collected Jacques’ point of view is a relief

      • There is comfort in his confidence. I really like that concept, Forthy. How do you articulate those subtle and quintessential relationship dynamics? How did you discover them?

        • Discovering things about a person is as simple as getting to know them. I’m getting lessons in Jacques right alongside all of you. And I love it when he surprises me.
