Sorry, whatever-your-name-is!  Even women don't  understand Mary!  She was not the right person to pair with The Man by any means!  When she wasn't b**ching, she was crying!  Is that what Gerry Anderson thinks of women?  And why didn't Sylvia just haul off and hit him?  Wink

I think she did! (Sylvia that is) Grin Yeah that gal wasn't exactly workin' on all thrusters! Grin

The stupidest thing she ever did was let John run out into the road then turn around and blame poor Ed. You don't know how close I came to breaking cannon in Mission of Mercy and have Ginny go up to Mary and slap her at the hospital. In the end I felt Ginny had much more class than that!  Smiley

Well, it's taken about 10 years to reach 32,500 words - albeit with about 7 years' of writer's block.

I tend to write whilst my son's skating, so it tends to be blocks of an hour or so

That was one of the reasons I wanted to keep the Mary scene in Soul Mates. The way she treated Ed was unspeakable!

I may rewrite Mission of Mercy with the alternate ending just for the group!

And I loved your nickname for her "Screecher Creature" I love it! Grin

It must be remembered that Gerry did not have a 'Normal' upbringing - his parents were almost constantly arguing - his mother was particularly dominant and I really don't think he had a lot of love during his formative years. because of the tense atmosphere, he became very introverted and found it very difficult to relate to other people, particularly women. This may go some way to explain why he's been married three times now.
I could believe that Sylvia could hit him - she seems to have been a very dominant personality

Didn't know that about him.  And yeah, Sylvia seemed very much an independent woman.  I always wondered how well a quiet man like him handled such a firecracker?  Not a good pairing, methinks.   Undecided  But what she did for UFO will never be forgotten!  Her costuming was the Bomb!  Cool

Matt,
I didn't coin "screecher creature."  I think Pam did.  Or Anny.  Somebody in the old group years ago.  But the name suited so well that it kinda stuck.  Cheesy

as someone else said, mary was a cardboard cut out to further the isolation of the commander. So, unfortunately, was John. All they did was show how much Straker would sacrifice to keep the world safe, to do his job until his world became his job. Had mary had a dominant personality, she would have made more sense, but she's a wash.

something never said in a fan fic: Oh, yeah. There was this totally vapid blond on your arm. <raised eyebrows> You're divorced, right?

d .. ducking and running.
