this story was very good.
its like the energizer bunny, lol.
but i wouldnt have it any other way, cause i love these characters an this tale.
ps honestly dont know why i said issun was 'boring' because i rather enjoyed what he said, i guess it was just weird having him speak. an will we see more of his wife?(if you do infact continue)
True, Issun doesn't talk much. But I wanted to tell his backstory somehow and the playful banter of husband and wife seemed to work. Not sure yet if Haru will have a part in the next story. It's still in the planning stages.

You're right, this isn't the usual GTS fare, but that's exactly why I love it. You really do a wonderful job with the characters and details, so much that it sometimes feels like a part of the actual mythology it was based on. Thanks for writing this, and I'd love to read the next League story (if you're not tired by now of writing them, LOL)
I'm definitely not tired of it. These stories have sort of become an obsession for me. So much fun to put my own spin on the characters and legends and engage in a bit of world-building connecting them. Thanks for reading, Malaka.

pretty cool chapter, do we yet know to what means merlin is enlisting the services of the hommunculi?(if you said already im sorry)
i feel that you did a good job with this chapter considering that issun-boshi is kinda boreing to listen to lol.(guess thats why hes a man of few words)
hope to read more.
Sorry if you found him boring. I wanted to contrast his seriousness with Haru's more playful approach.
As for why they've been recruited, it's addressed in the other League stories and in the intro to this one. But I will go into it more fully in the next chapter.

Love this chapter. cann't wait for the next! Did you watch the anime "The erotic adventures of tom thumb" with issun -boshi as the main charicter?
No, I haven't seen that. From what I understand, it's a modern day update of the story, right?

really liked this chapter. cant wait to see where the little samurai lives, an i had forgotten what a card thumbling was. an the ending kinda reminded me of 'indiana jones in raiders of the lost ark' where all the saxons were chasing merlin like the head hunter guys were chasing indiana. hilarious.

No sweat. An his womanizing is fun to read too. Lol. At any rate can't wait to read what you have in store for us. On a side note have you seen the Camelot series on starz(I think)
I've seen the first few episodes. Seemed pretty good. A few variations but it was fairly true to the story.

Oh. Well the samurai guy is bad ass an I can't wait to see his back story.
You'll definitely see some of Issun's backstory. Hope you enjoy it. Sorry about not using Hop. If I had these stories to do over, I probably would have included him from the beginning. He's fun to write.

cool chapter i was wonder how thumblina would leave her husband. well done. im loving this story immensely. cant wait to see 'hop's'(at least i think thats the guys name with the quick boots) story :p
We already saw Hop getting recruited in Book 2 (during the new member tryouts). This story takes places before that so Hop won't be in it. Sorry. This focuses on the original four members (Tom, 'Lina, Thumbling, and Issun).

great story as usual. an very informative. im very intrigued by this time period. love how playful the women seem to get when ever tom is around. cant wait to see what happens in chapter 2.
glad to see that you are doing a prequel to your awesome series.
Thanks. Not sure how accurate to the time period I am. I try to include some historical elements but at the end of the day, this is very much an idealized, fantasy-version of the 6th century. But hey, that's how I like it. ;)

I'd been hoping you'd write something like this again, and now I'm hooked. My favourite kind of story, can't wait to read more.
PS Will you be writing a chapter about each of the homunculi's backstory?
Depends on what you mean by backstory. If you mean the original stories they're from, I'll briefly recap the important bits in the dialogue, but won't be retelling them in full. If you mean how each of them was recruited to the team, then yes.

Hey-hey! Welcome home, Sir P. I was beginning to think those slave-drivers at AC Comics had shang-haied you back for good ("...he joked, half-seriously").
It might be an over-used cliche' to say that the opening chapter of this prequel more than makes up for lost time. But, I regard it as indisputably true, none-the-less. :-)
