Such a lovely, lovely ending. I know a lot of people will be happy to see lsellersfics little bit of dialogue at the end of her fic turned into such a wonderful, tender, and Hot! scene :)

It was great to see Lester fumbling about for enough coins to use the vending machine, LOL. Some poignant moments around Werth there, really good. And Cutter's apology to the Queen, ahahaha! Poor Lester, you did a fabulous job of giving us the extra stuff :D Nice work! *claps*

Yay for Lyle saving Lester's day *g*.

There were some great lines in this -- I think my favourite was “Your Highness, I'm very sorry for calling you a trumped up celebrity and I hope you have a nice Christmas,”

Two hours later, he sat across from Cutter in the main meeting room, feet on the desk, eating reheated Chinese food badly with chopsticks. It didn't matter how much the Professor sniggered at him, neither of them were leaving here until the apology to the Queen was adequately written. He'd already vetoed two attempts.

“Your Highness, I'm very sorry for calling you a trumped up celebrity and I hope you have a nice Christmas,” did not cut it and was lying screwed up in the corner of the room, a metre away from the bin, since Cutter had such terrible aim.

At this point I gave up all hope of decorum and howled with mad laughter :-) Absolutely wonderful :-)

Sounds fine to me. Don't see the problem!

And omfg that ending was sooooo sweet, it got me all teary! I have had to wipe my sniffy little doggy nose with my floppy ears :)

Hee! And also, wibble... This is lovely. We don't have enough fic about James Lester the Snarky Civil Servant, so it's a treat to have this one over again!

Brilliant! Loved so much of this.. like Nick's insult. But mostly just cos it's a Lester fic. Ahh.. Lyle's a good boy isn't he, knows just how to make it a better day for Lester.

Or maybe it was simply the two - Cutter and anomalies - went together so well and so often because each was unstable and caused a strange attraction.

Oh My God, I loved the original and this is just as awesome!
Poor Lester and his ugly interminable day and the last few lines just killed me and made me go all gooey on you :)

Sorry to be slow replying. I read this late yesterday on a train with a dodgy internet connection which had vanished altogether by the time I finished reading.

This is great! So many wonderful passages filling out my minimal dialogue and just adding to the jokes, while maintaining that bitter-sweet edge to the whole thing.

Thank you so much. I think I just won this challenge!!

No worries, sorry to be slow posting it! I'm really glad you're okay with it, I get a little nervous with remixes, though they've so far turned out great fun each time.

LOL - this is great! A complete companion-piece to the original!
