I'm late. I was so lazy and postponing my review that there is an entire new chapter.
And in response to you previous review, I must say that I completely trust you!
That little girl owns that entire city basically, and they couldn't even beat her without the help of Maxine. How lazy is that town? It almost looks like some kind of joke. They continuously don't take Maxine seriously because she's a girl and at the same time cannot even handle that little girl, let a lone an angry Maxine.
I wonder why she doesn't exploit this conservative medievel-like world more. She could easily get more free Ale if she just enters a drinking competition and beats everyone by drinking more than the rest combined. That would be something!
Also, I really think she could use that strength potion, then she can run a bit faster with her heavy armour.
Also, thanks for writing, and hopefully see you next wednesday!
Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Well she could be quite secretive and maybe these were just lower end thugs that she was using rather than genuine threats.
There probably aren't too many such competitions but if she found any she would enter them. Especially pie eating contests, a stronger Maxine is a very scary Maxine.

Angleland, what a ghetto. You can't even trust the little girls there. At least somebody proposed to simply move away from this hellhole. But at least they have Maxine to protect them now.
If only Maxine was a little bigger, she could keep up with the bandits and could gather some more respect because the horses would have trouble keeping up with her ;) yes, I'm at it again
On a more serious note, this plot about the bandits is getting interrinter. I wonder what the role of the little girl is.
Also, thank you for writing!
You can't really trust anyone, even me. Maxine does wish that she could grow much like her mother and sisters.
You'll find out her role soon.

Finally something thats above 8th grade reading level, isn't shrink or too short. I just wanted to say I quite enjoy this one, although I skimmed through the original which I do not enjoy as much (magic spontaneous willed growth is not my thing).
One question though, are the tags final? As in, will something new pop up later? Will there be growth of the heroine? Considering the canon of the story, and small (maybe unintentional) allude to it in one chapter it seems like there should be. In any case, cheers!
Thanks for reading.
No the tags aren't final. It's just what's seen in the story so far. Others will be added where need be

Maybe Chrissie should hug some sense into Laurence. Seems like he isn't really a nice person. Oh, talking about hugging monsters, have you seen "Princess slayer" by Jacksmith? That princess reminds me of Chrissie, but then really monster sized.
Well, at least the Inn lady was nice enough to bake her a free Pie, a bit of a pity that our friendly accountant didn't get to taste it. Well, at least I hope he can get some money together for some more beer ale.
Thank you for writing! Until next wednesday!
No I haven't seen it, I might check it out.
Most likely it would be a discounted price since Maxine provided the meat. Charles can get the money but there isn't all that much of it

I'm gonna give my most enthusiastic and heartfelt encouragement towards a continuation of this one-shot. I was a massive fan of the original BFG: Angleland, in no small part due to the fantastic bond between the towering Jessica and the courageous Tucker, and their various trials and tribulations. Not only is this pilot an intriguing development many years down the line, but it involves a protagonist who can very definitely shed some light on what happened between J&T ( by virtue of existing, most notably), and could easily stand on its own as a different kind of narrative set in a world that's already established, well-rounded and full of life.
If we're going down a completely selfish route btw; any story that showcases a 9-foot tall, intimidating red-haired girl who seems quite stern, but hints at being secretly quite fair and nice, has my whole-hearted seal of approval on multiple levels, especially when said girl is paired with a relatively small male companion who is both wary of, and beguiled by her. It's a recipe that I think is set up extremely well for your particular brand of adventure, companionship and fairytale drama, and I really hope you plan to write more - there's a decent chance it could become my favourite story of yours by some margin... no pressure though!
Hopefully it'll live up to your expectations when I get around to writing the rest of it.

Really like the start up chapter to this story. We seem to have some interesting characters to read about. Are we going to be seeing the return of old characters like the demigodess, nicole, the queen, etc?
Some old characters will pop up but obviously they will be older. I'm glad that you liked the pilot
