For this installment, I'd say you deserve the same grade as Toby. Well done! You have come back with all pistons firing!

Ahhh, it's so nice to be back to this again! I've missed the regular dose of word definitions. And as someone who probably tends towards the grandiloquent myself from time to time, this was a particularly good place to jump back in XD Oh for those moments when I can only think of "domicile" and "comestibles," and I can't think of the words "house" and "food"! :P

Anyway, this was cute and fun. I really enjoyed it! I especially got a laugh out of that lovely word joke (I tried it out on my sisters afterwards, and they got a kick out of it too!), and Tobey's various names for his teacher. "Professor No-Regard" was my favorite, I think :D

In the interest of due diligence, here's a couple Z words I can't resist. "Zeugma" and "Zowerswopped." Look 'em up, they're so fun to say! XD

Welcome back, we missed you! That was amazing.

So nice to see these back! I love the way you write these two. Tobey’s come so far, gah. May I suggest as some word options: Imperious, Lackadaisical, Serendipity, Superfluous, or Flummoxed?

This is one of the cutest chapters when they go on a ballon ride. I think it’s kind of silly that they are going flying considering she has the ability to fly herself, but I think it’s extra cute that since she has taken him flying, it’s his turn to take her flying.

This is my favorite chapter and I have read a few times. Everything fits together so perfectly that Becky and WordGirl, in her heart are two different people. I still don’t fully understand this because I’m not really good about the emotions, but I do like you read about emotional conflict.

I love this chapter of how they brainstorm. I love Scoops’ ideas they are ridiculous but simple, but doesn’t understand what might be behind each cover story. I love the letter Tobey wrote for Becky, it’s really cute. I like how Tobey isn’t a villain anymore but still is kind of rude in a good way. I like how Scoops still has the inner desire to be the one to expose WordGirl’s secret identity. It’s really fun and I would totally see him doing that. I have read Saving Tobey and Time To Go Home, so all of this I totally understand. And yes, I recently watched “Two Brains Forgets” so I know about the ray that makes you forget about everything or specific things. It’s weird that the Botsfords forget only about Becky being WordGirl and Dr. Two Brains forgets his identity and about his mouse brain. Anyways, I could keep talking about how I enjoyed this chapter.

whens the next chapter! I need a distraction from college apps my dude.

I’ll give you a free (art) commission for each new chapter (trying to motivate you)

Ohhhh, Tobey is TOO CUTE in this chapter! XD I loved the banter in the scene where they're preparing the time capsule. I wish we could've gotten more of that kind of thing in the show...and I really like it when there's time and space for that in your fics, when there's not some huge dramatic or emotional issue to be worked out. I'm enjoying just basking in them getting along in their own idiosyncratic ways :D

One thought I had about the comment that it's surprising for Tobey to be taking a Brit Lit class - I guess I don't know how it is if he's going to a technical college or whatever, but if it was a liberal arts college (which I suppose isn't that likely) or even like a state school, there are core requirements that everybody has to take, regardless of major. So for me, even though I was an English major, I still had to take one lab science class (and thankfully was able to take Human Heredity, the only kind of science that has ever even marginally interested me at all). I could see something like that being the case with Tobey, and he just chose Brit Lit to satisfy his English or Fine Arts requirement because he already knew he liked it. Anyway, just a thought that occurred to me.

And will we get to see what DOES become of them in five years? At least in an epilogue? *bats eyelashes*

Galanty - shadow play
Gaminesque - impish, boyish, playful
Gammon - to feign an action, perputrate a hoax on ( maybe a reveal to Becky's parents that she's WordGirl? )
Giganticide - killing of a giant ( in the figurative sense, where WordGirl is a giant and some villain actually tries to kill her? )

Awwww, that was a sweet first date! c: I was predicting the sunrise almost as soon as Tobey showed up outside her room, but I didn't expect the balloon ride in order to see the sunrise! And in all the discussion of flying and everything...I realized I've never seriously imagined Becky as a little girl, first beginning to use her powers and create the WordGirl persona. That would be a really interesting thing to explore...

Oh, and I have to say that their little back-and-forth of using increasingly elaborate words to describe the sunrise made it crystal clear, if anyone needed any further explanation, why Tobey and Becky are perfect for each other :D

Some issues I noticed:

"so it was probably better she let the subject drop on a lighthearted note" - Shouldn't that be 'he'? Since Tobey's the one who brought it up, and the one who's pursuing it...

"I'm thinking if calling it" - 'of', not 'if'

"a puff of warm air into between her palms" - take out 'into'

And do I detect a certain Austenian influence in the use of the word "raillery"? ;)

Aww, this was really sweet! X3 I really like drama like this - neither of them is just being stupid for the sake of drama and conflict; they have real reasons for not being exactly on the same wavelength this entire time. And then once they're able to actually put their feelings into words so they can understand what the truth is and communicate it to each other...they realize that they didn't actually have anything to worry about after all.

I find myself constantly amazed at the maturity of these two teenagers. I wish that more teenagers - and some adults too! - would take a leaf out of their books.

A couple typos I noticed:

"The day you challenged me to a duel, remember?" - There's an unnecessary quote mark after this sentence.

"he was struggling with his identity now that so many of the things that once defined him were now off limits" - Best not to use two 'now's in the same sentence. I'd take out the second one, or just reword the sentence.

This was a really fun chapter :D I could totally see something like this happening in the show, if Tobey had stopped his villainous ways for good. And for a show with such a staggering number of villains, I imagine it must have been pretty hard to figure out a way to bring so many of them in - but it worked surprisingly well with this scenario! I don't think I even met all of them in the episodes I've seen XD Was that all of the villains from the show? I suppose for most stories, a situation like this wouldn't be endearing, but with how wacky and...well, un-villainous most of the villains in this show are, it was kind of sweet to see how much they cared and what it meant to Tobey.

I also liked that you acknowledged within the chapter how long it was, by having the Narrator complain about it :P

(I noticed a few typos scattered throughout, but lost my notes on the specifics since I took so long to finish reading, so I guess you'll have to hunt for them yourself if you care. They were all minor typos, like missing quote marks and such.)
