Glad to see the new chapter, I ended up reading the whole story again :)
Looking forward to more!

It continues to be slow going between chapters (grad school and wedding plans don't help), but Chapter 13 is up! No promises on upcoming chapters, but as I have the summer "off" (no school, wedding done), it will hopefully not be so long before the next chapter. As the folder is not moderated quite yet, here are the individual deeplinks:

I read most of the chapters some time ago as a CC "lurker" but now that I have finally joined CC I can say "Bravo!" These are fun to read and I like how you keep the picture-setting relevant but not overdone. The side comments and questions from the kids are cute, and I am rooting for Marcel (of course!).

Thanks, athronieth! (And Medieval Guy and soccerkid6, if I look back a bit further--I really haven't kept up with this thread that well, I see). It's nice to know that I have had readers--and that the readers have liked what they've seen.

For what it's worth, a lot of "relevant but not overdone" aspect of the pictures has a *lot* to do with it being far easier not to build a lavish MOC beyond my talents and collection size for each picture--but I'm glad that it's not "underdone."

Once again, it's a long gap between chapters and the new chapter is quite short-- but Chapter 14 is up all the same! I think the folder is moderated, but here are the individual deeplinks anyway:

Very well done! I went back to Chapter 12 and restarted from there to be sure I was up to date and fresh before chapter 14 - TRIALRUN begins!

I love the twist with Vladek... and I must confess to being very curious about what the other failed knights have been up to all this time!!!

I guess this is the prequel to Vladek's revenge in the future??? :D

I reread the story to be sure I understood the significance of the new chapter. Definitely an interesting twist, I like how you foreshadowed it in the previous chapter :)

I get the feeling that somehow, someway, all those dudes in Trailrun will make a comeback to the realm. :)

Once again, it's a long gap between chapters and I can hardly tell you how much busier my life is now than it was when I last posted--but Chapter 15 is up all the same! The folder shouldn't be moderated yet, but here are the individual deeplinks anyway:

Well done laddie. Read or should say viewed chapter 1. I enjoyed the story, which is really more like a LCC comic strip but most entertaining. :) Keep up the good work. :D I'll read some more later.
