I need to read the author's notes more carefully, I guess. As I was reading through your story, I kept thinking, "This just doesn't sound right. Honeybee's never written dialogue this over the top before. What's going on?" Now that I know that you've dipped your toe into classic literature, I can only say very well done!
As to the author, I must admit that I had to look up the first sentence. I've never read anything by the author, although I've seen several movies which are based on her works.
Ah yes, I would imagine it would be confusing for someone who didn't know what I was up to! Still, I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

I won't say who you were impersonating but I got it before the first sentence was done. That happens to be one of my all time favorite books. So, well done on the assignment, and what a great little story!
Thanks! Considering it's modeled after one of the most famous opening lines of literary history, I almost didn't use it. But I wanted people to be able to guess easily, so I'm glad you got it.
