Welcome back and thank you for your general awesomeness. My geekery will show if I say that the last chapter was one of my favorite Elisa moments. So a million thanks to those of you who supported her in that landmark moment. 🙂
For this new chapter, a lot of you have been waiting for a while (wow, that sounded like Yoda!). There is a section here you have seen before – hopefully, now that you will see it in context, the puzzle pieces will fit. Also, please listen to the song because in this case, the song is part of the chapter. 🙂 Oh, and check out Aiden’s letters in his own handwriting (or at least the only nongirly font I had available) on the side bar menu.
And a special thanks to those who are always there to help from British culture (Ariadne) to reviews to typos – it’s hard to list all the names or I will go on forever or worse, forget someone and torture myself while watching Game of Thrones (as if the show doesn’t tear your guts out enough). 🙂 Love you all! Link, song, Pinterest below. Also, we have some wonderful writers among our readers here: check out Wattle on Fanfiction, Sasha Cameron, BG Holmes, Nanette Virden, Candiefloss on Fanfiction, and Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps on Fanfiction and her Tmblr page! I’m still discovering others in my three minutes of reading per day. 🙂 Love – Ani
Thank you so much everyone for your comments and questions. I will answer them all in the next couple of days. We are getting close to the end, with the final chapters to be posted tomorrow and Monday. I will keep them up for a few days to give you time to read, comment, ask questions. Then we start Aiden, skipped holidays, etc. Even senior TMM/30N readers will find something new in Chapter 35 – a bit of trivia that may become relevant in the sequel. Thank you so much for following this journey with me!! Song and link below.
For those of you who wondered what song Aiden plays for Elisa in the library (“bad, bad girl”), it’s Criminal, by Fiona Apple.
Hey everyone, last day of vacation here (Boo!). To delay the Monday, post-vacation abyss, I am posting the “soundtrack” (does that word work outside of the movie world?) for 30 Nights. So many of you have asked for and recommended songs over the last few months, and I have adopted some of those recommendations. Thank you so much for thinking about 30N in so much detail!! My goal with the list of songs was to have music from various parts of the world that represent all the diverse readership of 30N, but also the immigration theme. And of course, I tried to pick songs that have resisted time because time is such a big issue in 30N/TMM. Hope you all like it!! Lots of love (while trying my best to banish Sunday blues). Feel free to guess which songs go with each moment from 30N/TMM. xo, Ani
