wild_child_uk _ He knows that she is alive, she just doesn't think that he knows because of their lack of interaction.
frenchkiss70 As we all know it doesn't take much for our beloved Michael to cause a mess . . . it just so happens that I do address this in the next part, so I'm going to have to be coy and say read on to find out . . . LOL . . . Thanks for the bumpage.
brianna Thanks for the vote of confidence. I hope I don't let you down. I am a little rusty. Also thanks for the promotional bumps.

Saymi007 Although I don't directly say this . . . Liz is Claudia's personal assistant and caretaker that is why she was with her in the first place and yes, I love to write Max a bad boy who is oh so good . . . if you know what I mean. Thanks for the promotional bumpage.

Thanks for the awesome feedback . . . I know this part was a bit confusing with all the in time and out of time sequences . . . but thanks for hanging in there and for all the questions, comments and bumpage.
starlady - The will holds many surprises for our lovely little Liz. Sexual tension is a must . . . maybe even sexual fulfillment . . . I'm not telling.
TeanHoney - The wait shouldn't be very long . . . but like I said in the dedication . . . when it comes it comes . . . I'm not trying to be mean or arrogant . . . pressure really kills my creativity. I love writing Max and Liz and I plan to do as long as it remains fun. Thanks.
Angelic - So glad that you approve. Thanks for the feedback and the encouragement.
BehrObsession - Max is a man and men notice women. I'm glad he finally took a nice long look. Liz won't be the only one transforming.
wild_child_uk - Liz was orphaned and has lived with Claudia since she was about 10.
frenchkiss70 - Claudia has many irons on the fire, but yes she is planning for Max and Liz to get together. The sparks will fly sooooon.
begonia9508 - Thanks for loving this story. The changes in the will have Liz in an uproar because she is about to come to a point in her life where she doesn't want to be dictated to . . . by anyone . . . and that includes Max.
FireflyDreamer - I tried to make Michael, Kyle, Alex and Max act more like brothers.
NATEVANS - I think that sexual tension is not only good, but a MUST!
JaneLane - Max doesn't know Liz really . . . but I'm sure he will like her eventually.
rar1942 - I wonder what makes you so sure Liz would say Lunk-Head and not Lug-Head . . . LOL
roswellluver - Claudia's plan will never be discussed . . . there will be parts where she will say that it is working perfectly and you will have to infer what she is actually talking about . . . sorry.
sweetygurl - I love bumpage. Thanks.
Alien614 - Every Max that I write tends to be a bit cocky . . . don't you just love it . . . I do. LOL
brianna - Liz is feelin' Max . . . you're feelin' Max . . . I'm feelin' Max . . . JB just made Max so damn sexy that we can't seem to help ourselves . . .
abbs007 - So glad you could join us . . . hope that you keep enjoying it.
the better twin - Next time I hope you'll be saying "It's getting hot in here." or "Damn that was hot!" . . . LOL

Author's Note: Responding to Feedback . . .
FireflyDreamer - Yep . . . I wanted them to have a friendship that was true and funny . . . like in real life . . . know one knows you like the your friends . . . sometimes they even know things your family doesn't know, which will be the case with Max and the boys.
Inimitable - I had totally forgot about the Shiri lisp thing . . . LOL . . . so I guess I might go back and change it to Lunkhead . . . LOL because we hear Shiri's voice in our heads as we read . . . and I want to remain true to our beloved show and its wonderful characters.
Elc - So glad to hear that you are loving this fic . . . it really warms my heart and inspires me. Thank you for posting and letting me know your thoughts.
aZNroSweLl anglgrl - It's coming . . . it's coming . . . hold your horses . . . LOL
Araxie HRH - Liz is Claudia's personal assistant . . . there is not much that she doesn't know . . . and no she doesn't like the changes that her grandmother is trying to make. As far as marriage being a part of the change . . . I'm not telling nanny nanny nanny ~ . . . LOL . . . You'll just have to keep reading to find out . . . LOL . . . I know . . . I'm such a witch sometimes.
Emotions23 - She really is hard to miss . . . scurrying about after Claudia, but this is the first time he noticed her as a woman . . . Liz just doesn't want Claudia meddling in her life.
FehrBehr - I'm sorry my friend, but you are going to have to wait . . . too much work this weekend, plus I'm sick and I'm on a borrowed computer. But hopefully the wait won't be too long . . . I'm pacing myself so that I won't get stressed out and end up with a dreaded case of Writer's block. Mum is the word in regard to the changes . . . I'm not telling . . . LOL . . . and you best believe the sexual tension is on the way.
Saymi007 - Never apologize for leaving feedback . . . I love it . . . and feedback can never be late . . . I'm glad that I answered some of you back story questions. I don't mind questions, comments or concerns . . . I answer if the mood suits me or I just leaving them hanging . . . with anticipation . . . LOL and BTW, the only stupid question is the one that never gets asked . . . so ask away. Thanks for posting and I am glad that you like the story.
begonia9508 - Yes there is fire in Liz . . . she is Claudia's granddaughter after all. I do plan to continue and eventually finish Splendor . . . I was using this fic as a spring board . . . so that I could get motivated . . . cross your fingers and wish me luck, thanks for asking.
sweetygurl - Thanks for the bumpage . . . it increases my readership . . . LOL . . .

Hello my friends . . . First I'd like to apologize for the extended time it has taken me to post . . . Life rearing its head again . . . strep . . . allegeric reaction to meds . . . hives and steriods . . . all this and plenty of bed rest . . . more like half dead and bed ridden . . . I'm finally feeling better and after I finish wading through feedback . . . (btw, thanks for so much of it . . . whew) . . . I will be posting either Sunday or Monday . . . after that I'm flying off to Florida for a week . . . so no updates . . . so the Second thing I wanted to do was apologize in advance for the lack of posting . . . Maybe after some sun and some fun I'll be energized . . .
Peace, Love and Happiness.

For anyone looking for Daddy Makes Three, this is just to let you know that it has been removed. I was informed today 2/3/03 that I did not vary the storyline enough and that it could be considered plagiarism, even though I credited the author. Plagiarism was not my intention and I would never want to do anything to jeopardize the Board or my integrity so I will be kicking my very own personal muse in the butt and getting back to those stories that are mine, mine, all mine. Thanks for understanding and if you are interested in seeing how this story would have played out . . . My suggestion is get the book, it is a great read.
