I didn't actually intend to post a chapter of Community on Christmas day, but it worked out that way.
To the dozens of you who've taken the time to send me Christmas greetings, thanks! Those were a pleasant surprise. I guess they shouldn't be a surprise, though, after reading your comments on my stories for the last couple of years.
Yes, I posted the first installation of Nina in July of 2011. since then I've entertained hundreds of positive comments (and a dozen or so really negative ones). Those comments are the connections between me and you that keep me wanting to tell stories even when work and life and a blonde-haired, plump muse are not cooperating.
