OK, a question.

Does anyone know, in the book or the movie, what time of year Huck Finn takes place? I'm assuming spring or fall, prolly spring, given that there are references to him playing hooky from school and I assume they didn't go to school in the summer either. . .and it sure as heck doesn't look like winter. . .but I want to know some clearer idea.

Anyone?

Thanks,
Febobe :)

Just to see what you guys think. . .

I know it's been a "powerful long time," as Huck would say, since anyone posted here (the HuckHealers community), but I'm going to jump in. . . . :D

A plot bunny dropped into the water by Elevenses on my birthday about 4.5 years back is nibbling at my toes (August 5, 2004: "1. The classic HuckHealers story: Huck gets sick somewhere along the river and Jim has to care for him. While ill, Huck's normally tough exterior gives way to show his very vulnerable side - he is just a 12-year-old boy, after all."). I'm thinking of trying to work on this one - my first ever HuckHealers fic - and would like some input.

The illnesses I'm considering are measles, typhoid fever, and influenza. I reserve the right to repeat the fic with whatever I don't use first time, because it will totally change things around. But still, the first time is always "special," and I'd like it to be really perfect. I'm leaning toward either measles or typhoid, probably measles, and I wondered whether anyone here had any thoughts they wanted to offer. I have already started my notes and am hoping to have a first chapter up fairly soon. I'd like to get going well enough to post at a reasonably steady pace, but we'll have to see.

Thoughts? Bueller? Bueller? :) Anybody home out there?
