So I don't really understand the point in breaking up the story with the lines... I like the story though it wasn't excatly what I was expecting. Keep writing!

I can't believe Mark threaten Caspian, how evil of him.
| Jevanminx 7/20/10 . chapter 21
Ah, now it appears, damn FP being picky, hehehehe. The piece in regards to this in my last review can therefore be disregarded. But I am loving the tension behind this Mark thing, adding a little drama off the racecourse.

Oh, see I knew there had to be something. Now I'm going crazy because I can't find Chapter 21. Damn me for liking this story so much that I can't cope with it saying Chapter 21 is an outdated url and moving onto Chapter 22.

In review of all chapters so far.
A horse in flight and he thought it a good idea to hit it not catch it, the idiot hehehe.
Loving the growing relationship more so between Ginny and Julien than Mark who I still can't quite peg.

Is mark doin something illeagal? Cause that's what it seems like. What with his interesting phonecalls. And what's with his nephew? He is just mean. It's like he doesn't want Kenya to win. The poor horse was bleeding! I can't wait to see what happensnext!
| Jenny.Humphrey 7/14/10 . chapter 12
Yay! I love it...I hope she keeps winning the races and I love the banter between her and Julian! update soon
| EmmaWoodhouse88 7/12/10 . chapter 12
That was a horrible thing it laroache to say. Mad or nit. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is mark going to turn out to be a big problem later on? I can't wait to see what happens next!
| Jenny.Humphrey 7/8/10 . chapter 7
This is really good! Mark seems a little too perfect though...I wonder what's going to happen there. Update soon!
| EmmaWoodhouse88 7/8/10 . chapter 7
Uh oh. This could cause problems. This story seems really interesting and seems like it has a lot of potential. I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
| Inked Words 7/6/10 . chapter 1
I was so closed to being finished! SO CLOSE. I was on Chapter 35 and then I looked today and there were only 3 chapters up!
It was so good! D:
| bookwrm 7/4/10 . chapter 44
So good! I really enjoyed this story, it made me all warm and tingly :)
Keep on writing, and i hope this story gets read by many others!
| Daddy's Little Peach 7/4/10 . chapter 1
Loved the story, it was refreshing to read something original on here! Just wish it hadn't finished so quickly, though I suppose part of that was e staying up til 1am reading it...
My one gripe is that it finished so soon after the climax of the Dewhurst race. Personally I would have liked it it there was another chapter in there to give Ginny a bit more time to stew over the Julien thing, because I think that it would have given his reconciliation much more impact. But that said, that's what I prefer, and I'm no expert of literature :)
| bookwrm 7/2/10 . chapter 24
I love, love, LOVE this story! I know its complete, so I can't wait to finish it :)

Let me start by giving you my hugest thanks for all your reviews.
A couple of you have questioned Julien's "intentions" at the end and though I've replied to you both in private messages, I thought, for the benefit of anyone else who is also a little puzzled, I'd quickly set the record straight.
Although Julien and Ginny will probably get married in the future (I don't even know that yet!), he was simply implying that they "seal the deal" with a physical, more intimate expression of their love in the privacy (and comfort as it gets darn cold here in autumn!) of the office. I'll let you draw your own conclusions from that!
In answer to Mischa's question, At Long Odds republished is so called because I was having trouble with Fiction Press (I still am for that matter and the support email address doesn't appear to have anyone on the other end reading my cries for help). I originally posted At Long Odds with just that title but my personal page (where you go to update the chapters) wasn't giving me the option to edit my stories. So I created a second version but of course it wouldn't let me call it by the same name so I just added "republished" to the end so it would be accepted. I've since figured out if I just keep refreshing my personal page, it eventually gives me the option to update. Now that I know that, I guess there is nothing stopping me from removing the "republished" bit of the title now.
A good point was brought up (and one which I'd completely forgotten about!) in that Designer Genes might act as a bit of a spoiler for those who haven't read ALO. It's true to a certain extent but most references about Caspian are made about his three-year-old racing campaign but it naturally mentions Julien and Ginny are a couple and a couple of important race results are revealed in dialogue. There should actually be another book in between ALO and Designer Genes but I'm still trying to think of a plot for it!
Many thanks, all your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated. :)
