|I don't mind Len ending up with Reg, but I don't like the engaged or nothing idea. I would have liked to have seen Len meet Reg in England while she was at Oxford, perhaps at a conference, go on a couple of dates, ie dinner or the theatre, so that they can connect away from school/san/Maynards.|
|There was a very good drabble, which seems to have vanished off the face of the earth, called 'A Pharmacist on the Gornetz Platz' which dealt with the last term of the triplets at the CS and made Reg very sympathetic, plus dealing with the REg/Len relationship much better than EBD did (though actually I think she did most of it quite well *don't kill me*). I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't like Reg as it is a nice tak on him, and anyone who does, as he is very nice in it!|
|Joey getting married young was less worrying partly because she's naturally more selfish, and would push more for what she wants or needs.|
|Reg for me connotes the dark, handsome type -- someone out of a movie with heroic British pilots.|
|I can't see this with Reg, but Reggie, on the other hand sounds far more dashing. I think this is a little like Bert as opposed to Bertie (which was how George VI was known in the "family" before coming to the throne).|
| Isn't it funny what preconceptions we bring to names. Reg for me connotes the dark, handsome type -- someone out of a movie with heroic British pilots. No idea why.

|I always think of Entwistle as a Lancashire name for the same reason, Caroline! (I have a pretty picture of Bromley Cross as a link in my LJ somewhere because when I said I'd been to The Last Drop I confused everyone!). And it's quite a common name in Lancashire. Considering that EBD was from the NE herself, it always surprises me how few Notherners there are at the CS.
I'm afraid I don't like the name Reg, though. But then, although I like the name Helena, I don't like Len (as a girl's name) either!
|And 'Len Entwistle' is really awkward to say. 'Helena Entwistle' isn't much better.|
Perhaps she'd use her first name and become Mrs Mary Entwhistle. After all, she wouldn't need to differentiate herself from her triplet sisters once she was married.
