Hoooo boy.. Here I casually try and slip out the back and you guys pull me back in.
I just want to point out that despite this post I AM leaving. So this will be my last here. I MIGHT come back one day or not... we'll see.
So if you want my anything from here on: Mail me.
And now for the Q and A:

I'm glad you posted the end to this story. I really enjoyed it. I can't wait until you start A Red Letter Day. I will defiantly want to read that one too.
If you want to read A Red Letter Day.. I can mail it to you.

I'd be very curious to hear why, Corvus. Talented people shouldn't leave.
Meanwhile, great ending to the story. You really do describe aliens well, and I love how you worked in that line about "the second least likely thing to have ever happened." Good job on finishing it.
If you REALLY want to know why I'm leaving, mail me.
Great that you liked the ending.
Unfortunately I can't take credit for that line... It was soylentOrange who suggested it.

I have one question and I'm sure it may have been something I missed: Belle was left unconsious on the other side of the portal when it collapsed. Leela was unable to save her.
So how did Belle show up in Fry's shower? Wouldn't Bender have noticed another, female meatbag in his apartment and mentioned it to Fry?
I'm sure there's a simple explanation but my sleep-deprived mind doesn't register it.
That said, Leela's sitting at the conference table, alone and holding the gift Fry got for her was a powerful image. That would have been a scene that would have been ruined if she spoke. Her action of hugging Fry tightly while she was still crying tells of the deep affection she has for him - the same affection she won't put into words and denies to herself.
Now Corvus, I'm not going to be preachy or anything but I do want you to send me an e-mail so we can talk about this leaving PEEL. If you have it in your mind it's the thing to do, I won't try to stop you, but I would like to get your reason. We've already lost Tongue Luck, The Voices and PCC Fred - I really don't want to lose more of the senior members who dedicate and contribute a lot to the board.
So please drop me an e-mail over the next couple of days. If I don't respond, it's because my comcast account seems to think some of my out-of-country contacts are evil and refuses to send me the mail. Then let me know on this thread and I'll give you my backup address.
Seeing as I'm currently typing an email to you Ralph, I intend to address your questions there. Hope that is okay with you.

An excellent conclusion to an excellent work of fiction, Corvus. Sorry to hear that you're leaving PEEL. Hopefully you'll still poke your head in every once in awhile?
Thanks! And I most likely won't poke my head in every once in while. Sorry.

I said mumblings to this effect privately but it's worth saying again. The scene between Fry and leela toward the end was quite masterful. The tension of the entire chase leading up to it made for a great read and the apparent failure to rescue Belle... yeah, it was good.
It was grueling to write but I'm glad to know that my effort paid of. Thanks!

Corvus, it'd be a damn shame if you left, but if that's your decision, well, good luck; here's hoping you find bluer skies elsewhere.
Myself, I'd urge you to stay; 'Somewhere I Belong' kicks ass, and I liked 'Red Letter Day', and look forward to reading more of it. You write a good fic, and it'd be a pity to lose a talent like that.
Anyway, good luck with whatever you decide.
Sorry but I won't stay. Glad you like SIB and if you want me to I can mail you A Red Letter Day when I have gotten the plot details worked out and started to write it.
With all that said I'm outta here! So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish!
