This is too cool! Your Pervinca is quite different from mine, and I got the heebee geebies while reading it. It's as if you were describing me and my older sister when we were kids, which is where I get a lot of my material for my Pimpernel. It will be interesting to see how you characterize *her*...

Glad your muse is "rearing it's ugly head"! I'm happy to see you extending your story. :-)

Author Reply: My muse has gotten quite ugly of late. I may have to put her down if she gets any more ideas. LOL She is keeping me too busy. This was supposed to be a ONE chapter story!

Hehehehe - my own little brother was lucky. His voice broke quite quickly. If he had had the cracking problem, he would not have heard the end of it from his dear elder sister :P I used to tease some of my guy-friends so much, hehehehe. I was so mean :P

Merry doesn't really need to trade - he's almost a part of the family anyway! :) But I'm glad Pippin came to his senses - a pony instead of a wonderful sister like me? No challenge at all :P

I think it's great that such a little idea became such a wonderful story. Fantastic work GW!

- Pervinca

Author Reply: Thank for all of the wonderful reviews. Lets me know how this worked. I also enjoyed writing this one and for some reason, I see Merry as one of Pervinca's biggest fans. LOL I think the two of them are both very strong-willed. Hey, Pip had his chance, but I am very sure he would have regretted it. A pnoy would have no idea how to remove a bucket from a hobbit's head would it?

Wow, I don't know how you managed to do it, but you gave those three lasses three wonderful and different personalities! (I made Pearl and Pimpernel very similar, and then Estella and Diamond are a little like Pervinca...) Of the three, Pearl would be the thinking one and the peace-maker. Being the eldest, I suppose it makes sense. But the mice...oh, that was fantastic!

And now, on to review the final chapter :)

- Pervinca

Author Reply: Thank you so much for the reviews. Glad you enjoyed the lasses. Somehow the mice just made sense to me. Mice are so against order. LOL Also, on a farm there are bound to be few here and there. Now, I think your Pearl and Pim are not so much alike as they are in league with each other. I think of them as being very close. As to the other three, I think of them as the lasses with a sense of fun and adventure. I love all of your characters.

I like the way you described every sister's character so well. Their good points, their weaker points and the way they interact with the family. I really enjoyed reading this.

Author Reply: Thank you so much. I am glad that you enjoyed this. I have one more chapter which I plan to post later today and then it will be finished. Thanks for reading.

"She is the most likely to indulge me and she is the one that pleads my case with my parents when I have been up to no good. Nell wonít give me away to them, but if Iím caught then she lets me dig my own holes. Pervinca will dig the hole for me and shovel the dirt in on top of me. "

Oh, that one made me laugh...I could just hear Billy, er, I mean Pippin, saying those lines...

-Laura

Author Reply: LOL I almost always hear Billy when I write Pippin. I know I shouldn't, but after seeing the movies so many times, I just can't help it. Glad someone else so in the same boat. Thanks for the review and I am glad that it made you laugh.

Pearl is wonderful! Totally organized, poor lass, someone needs to be in that family! LOL!

Another great chapter to a really cute story.

"Pearl also never panics. I have come to her bleeding from both knees, my nose, my elbows, my head, with both eyes blacked, and once, though I donít wish to discuss it, with a bucket stuck on my head. Nothing panics her. I have tested her and she will remain calm and sort out whatever the trouble may be. She will stop bleeding, bandage wounds, hold cold cloths on swollen eyes, bring down fevers, find missing blankets and remove stubborn buckets from your head. The only thing that upsets her is mice."

I loved that paragraph- He had to test her to make sure she never panics!


Bravo!

Author Reply: You are a very fast reader, Hobbit_lass! Thanks for the review. I am glad you liked this one. The last chapter should be up tomorrow sometime. Needs a bit of work and then, for good and all, this one will be done! (I hope.)

I am loving this so much!

The bit about the cake had me laughing so much, and was topped only by the egg episode! I like how you contrast the sisters and tell special things about each one. Great stuff!


hobbit_lass

Author Reply: Why, thank you. We aim to please. Keep reading and let me know what you think of the next one. So many sisters.....

O what a lovely story! Your characters are distinctly drawn. Each has a unique personality, and the inter-relationships are believable and not cliched.

So much of it rings so true. You don't happen to know an only brother of many sisters IRL, do you?

This would have been great as a stand-alone one-chapter story, but I'm so glad to hear there's more!

Looking forward to reading more when I can get the chance.

Author Reply: Thank you. I don't know any younger brothers with many older sisters. I reversed this a bit. I have a friend who has five older brother and one older sister. She's the baby girl of the family. The way those brother look after her was used as a model for this with changes to fit older sisters. I have heard her complain many times and yet, she adores everyone of them. Hope you get a chance to read the rest, but not if it cuts into your writing time. LOL I need you to finish Starfire as I am now awaiting the big race.

Five chapters! Hoorah! That means I'm reading before you've finished, and so I can beg you to add another chapter in my review. I love doing that, for some reason.

Author Reply: Good, because I just love begging. It helps me write and makes me feel special. LOL Thanks for reading and for the begging.

PervincaReviewed Chapter: 3 on 5/12/2004
Aww, another sweet account of one of Pippin's sisters! You know, this is probably the first time I've seen Pimpernel as Pippin's closest sister. Usually it's Pearl (the big babying elder sister, I suppose), or in some cases Pervinca (since she's the closest in age anyway), but I liked how you've been original! I especially liked the scene about Pim (sorry - Nell :P) and Pippin tossing eggs at each other! Ah, the fun of living on a farm :)

Well, Pervinca and Pimpernel were wonderful, let's see what Pip thinks of biggest sister, Pearl :)

- Pervinca

Author Reply: Thank you. I have tried to show each sister in a differnet way. I think he is close to each of them for different reasons. For some reason, when I wrote this, I thought it might just be that one of the sisters was a sort of tom-boy type and I decided it would be Nell. Glad it seemed a bit original as all of this has been done in so many different ways. It gets hard to have a new slant on these things. LOL Hope you enjoy Pearl as I am posting her in a minute. Then there will be one more chapter to wrap it up after that. My one chapter story just became a five chapter story.
