Mark, your stories have become a natural part of existence for your willingness to provide such well written chapters with amazing regularity. The quality and volume continue to stun! As treats, they offer a variety of fun events, insights into human behaviour, challenges to ideas and expectations of the 'everyday', and often, an emotional roller coaster dipping and twisting through our deepest fears and communal experiences. This last part, such as with 911, has allowed me to personally explore via your writing, many of my own thoughts and emotions in a way to help me better understand myself and even help to heal from traumatic events. Thank you. This time last year, you had given us Chapter 9 of 911, the family was again in Claremont, but this time they were blindly rushing towards the horror of 911. It was an unusual story for the central 'event' was something we understood could not be avoided, had such a specific time, and we could only wait through the summer to see how you might take us through this shared experience. It was traumatic, but was also a brilliant way to explore this historical tragedy. In your email announcing this current chapter of Flux, you indicated that you were, in effect, moving 'beyond 911'. Flux, to me has been a brilliant follow-up to 911 for it has allowed us to see the many ways people grieve, screw things up, and sometimes move-on. 911 will nevrer be completely over for any of them (or anyone alive at the time it occured) but thank you for allowing us to share in this healing/discovery process. It would have been easy to have such events as Wade become Will's new dad, but you do not every 'do easy'. The changes in relationship status and reforming of alliances/partnerships/friendships/love interests has been realistic and amazing. Where ever you choose to take us wth the remainder of Flux (which I hope has many more chapters!) and beyond, will, I am sure, continue to be equal parts entertaining and challenging. Again, thank you for these continued selfless gifts you continue to give your fans.
