Hans and Heidi Bernerholdt, and their maid, Marie LeChow, on their first day at Saint Lovejoys Private School. Scene from Swiss Mix. In this picture, Hans and Marie are ten, and Hans' little sister, Heidi, is seven.
Yes. This story got started originally as fan fiction on the Palcomix web forum for the School Days web comic, that bbmbbf and Krezz Karavan produce. The Pouncefield location and School Days characters are used in my story with the explicit permission of their creators. The first 75 chapters or so of my story are all my own unique characters and content, as I established the back story for Hans and Heidi before they started at Pouncefield. After that, about 1/3 of the characters that you encounter are either School Days characters, like Edna Foxx and her brother Edward, or fan characters whose creators asked me if I could include them in the story, like Bren and Luke and Elise.
