Author Notes & More BTD

So, since I’m way ahead of schedule (for me anyway) I thought I’d offer a little explanation to the last three Bored To Death chapters.

Folks were throwing a lot of theories around and since I’m always dorkishly proud of myself for figuring shit out, I thought i’d confirm some things…

Chapters 35, 36 & 37 were not influenced by It’s A Wonderful Life… simply molded to fit the one story as opposed to any number of ‘what if’ type stories out there such as A Christmas Carol and  The Family Man or even Quantum Leap…

The titles of each chap were movie quotes…

35: I wanna live again… on the bridge George begged, “Please! I wanna live again. I wanna live again.”

36: An Awful Hole… Clerance told George, “Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?.”

37: I’ll Take It… George told Mary, “What do you want, Mary? Do you want the moon? If you want it, I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down for you. Hey! That’s a pretty good idea! I’ll give you the moon, Mary.” To which, Mary replied, “I’ll take it. Then What?”


So… ‘Then what?’ she says…


It’s time to motor on…

Weighing in at just under 9,000 words…

Chapter 38: Meanwhile… Back At Fangtasia

A very special thank you goes to my beta guest-star… MellyKen!

A special note: There isn’t just one ‘flashback’ in this chapter… There are two flashbacks… they are both in italics and long enough that they should stand out among my usually superfluous use of italics.

I hope you like it…

…because, yes, there are plans for it.



And I can’t stress enough… THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU for all of the awesome comments you all leave for me!

I look forward to them, even if i don’t have the time to reply to them all…

And my hubs reads them too… and then he gives me more time to write 😉

XOXOX, Angela
