Thank you to all my readers! All you quiet folks who read but don't review- I appreciate you too! I know how many of you there are; I check my traffic stats. And… wow, you're an international bunch, aren't ya? :-D

Thank you especially to my reviewers, for the advice and encouragement. Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; they always make my day! :-) Still amazed by how much attention this story's gotten!

My tumblr reviewer: Thank you for the depth of insight that comes from knowing and loving ships in general, not just Titanic. Thanks for the great conversations on the psychology of the characters. And of course, thanks for the virtual sharing of chocolate and tea!

Ograndebatata: Thank you for the thorough comments, the attention to historical detail, and in many cases a fresh perspective on things I've written in both this story and "Yours, Tommie."

Spirit of the Scottish Kelpie: Thank you SO MUCH for the support from the very beginning! Thanks for the mutual R&R's and the PM conversations this entire summer, both serious and 'fangirling.' And for affirming when I somehow manage to write dialogue that actually sounds authentically Northern Irish. *shrugs*

Robinhood-Fiction: I'm very excited about possibly seeing the story translated! Merci!

Susan Viktorija, FlashFiction, twinkledee, JulieFan1, Elna11, Horses of Shadow and Night, Guest, The Inimitable Enigma Cypher: You all make me smile a lot. :-) :-) :-) For one of you in particular, I know that reviewing this was stepping a little out of your comfort zone. Extra thanks to you! :-)
