Okay, read it. A very solid and intriguing concept. I liked the patrons sitting around discussing time travel. I would say the story needs a good polish, as far as grammar and tightening it up. Also I thought the ending could have been expanded. For your very first story, an impressive effort.

I was thinking about this, because I love all of the references, but you never see this happen in big time published books. Is it OK to make all these references, or do publishers not allow this for copyright reasons?

I think Koontz makes plenty of references such as Harry Potter. If anything, it's free advertising.

Very entertaining haha... Has some spoilers for LIGHTNING though.

And Emma Roberts is cute! She has a movie this year I think it's called "Wild Child". Loved her prissiness in Nancy Drew.

Awesome! I enjoyed the whole story. When is the next chapter? I didn't even know this part of the forum existed.
I'm inclined to believe in parallel worlds filled with dark bound Snow and Odd adventures.
