Long time no see! I've been busy working on my latest story - "Duncan's Short Journey." It will be connected in some form to the other two stories I have planned.
Anyways, just under two days to go and S22 starts! I would like to let everyone on here know that AUS will also start airing S22 on Monday as well. A new episode will air everyday in AUS. An example is that on the fifth, we'll get "Confusion Without Delay," airing in the UK, and "Thomas and the Dragon," which airs in AUS.
I was on the TTTE Wikia's S22 page yesterday, and if you go to the "Characters Introduced" section, you'll see that many characters have been confirmed. In fact, some of the characters even have promo photos too.
It's something Ill have to get used to. However, one thing I'd say that I don't like is how Rebecca's part of song still uses part of James' original line. Here's a comparison.
James' original line: James, is vain but lots of fun
Rebecca's line: Rebecca, she's new and lots of fun
Other than that, I'd just have to get used to it since it's new.
