  1. The cast of characters are amazing in their scope and feel very real as I read.

    By the sound of things the real Head Porter was โ€œa bit of a characterโ€. Iโ€™ve experienced this myself in the past more than once and usually they canโ€™t deal with people who stand up to them…..good for you! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. ‘Bit of a character’ suggests there was at least something about him, which is generous to say the least. You know what they say – the truth always comes out eventually ๐Ÿ˜‰

    2. I didnโ€™t want to sound too harsh but I know exactly where youโ€™re coming from!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. I am glad to have substituted a much better Head Porter!!
    Soon the โ€œfictionalโ€ one will become real anyway because you are magical!!

    1. *you have substituted…

    2. I am pleased too! In the first book, Head Porter started out being a bit of a baddie like the original, but now he has evolved into the more lovable buffoon we know and adore! And yes – my magical history-writing pen is at work, so the other probably doesn’t even exist anymore anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

    3. exactly! He is probably finding himself doing all sorts of things he never expected, and buying double denim outfits as we speak!
      I like your magical history/future pen ๐Ÿ˜€

    4. I really, really hope he is living an online double life as a fake rock star ๐Ÿ™‚ That would please me enormously!
      My magic pen is going to write a detailed story about a magical land of cake and gin where we are queens of everything! ๐Ÿ˜€

    5. That would please me too ๐Ÿ™‚ maybe, when we get some Cambridge students here over the summer, I’ll ask them. I might not tell them why, I’ll just ask them ๐Ÿ˜€

      This sounds like an excellent use for the magic pen!! I can’t wait for the world around me to transform into this perfect land!!

    6. Oh yes just randomly ask them!! If they are Cambridge students, it probably won’t even sound that strange. They will be used to oddities ๐Ÿ™‚
      Prepare the superhero leggings and the finest fedoras! For this is the national costume of the land of SamLu! ๐Ÿ˜€

    7. I will just drop it into conversation ๐Ÿ™‚
      “so how’s the head porter’s double life going?”

      The land of SamLu sounds amazing!! and exceptionally colourful ๐Ÿ˜€

    8. If they reply with something startling, make notes – it can go in the next book!
      SamLu is the greatest nation on Earth. All the best people will live there ๐Ÿ™‚

    9. I will definitely make notes…
      I might follow them around asking odd questions making notes on their answers, just for fun!

      SamLu will be marvelous!! Undoubtedly the number one nation on earth! I imagine we will have people queuing up to get in!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    10. That’s a good idea! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Everyone is welcome to SamLu, as long as they are kind and help out around the place a bit. Obviously they have to have cool hair ๐Ÿ™‚

    11. I will write down everything they say ๐Ÿ˜

      Well yes, cool hair and help washing the gin glasses… sounds perfect ๐Ÿ˜Š
