this is really good. why did you stop?
kristy23 chapter 1 . 8/8/2006
This was really good. Having read "Katherine" by Ana Seyton I'm famimliar with the characters - however I do think it may be hard to understand and a little bit confusing if one hadn't read the book.

Your dialouge and word choice are really appropriate for the time period and I love the way you describe John's adoration of his father. Your characterizations of John and his brother are really very well done - deep enough that I feel like it's very realistic.

I look forward to reading more!

I really like this story. I don't know if you are planning on updating but if you are it would be good. :)

Have you ever seen the painting called "Accolade"? It's what this chapter reminds me of. The whole scene was set up very nicely; especially how Johnny's feelings of responsibility are described using the dark chapel. You described the entire presentation with a ton of detail! I didn't even know knights were given spurs. :)

The sentence starting with "Johnny wondered..." is so precious! You really do a great job with emotion. And once again, you're amazing at dialog, and much of the your stories are carried by using dialog.

Oh also-I just read the genealogy chart in the back of "Katherine." He marries Margeret Holland. If you're going to allow the readers to be introduced to her, I wonder what she'll be like.

I can already see Johnny becoming a complex character. On the one hand, he's officially a knight now and acts like one around others, but on the other hand, he's still just a little boy (if four years have passed, I take it that he's twelve or thirteen now?) and we can see that especially in his way of thinking.

I love it when Tom wakes little Johnny up! I never had a little brother, but I can imagine the modern-day equivalent. His homesickness is so heartbreaking, and written well because you truly get inside Johnny's head. (I mean, isn't that what an author's supposed to do with her characters?)
-
I think going through a day-by-day account of his training to knighthood would be a little tedious, so I'm glad you chose to outline important parts. I can't wait to read about Johnny's adventures as a teenager!

I'm so sorry that I haven't been around to review this! It's great writing; I've just been lazy.

Already, I like how Johnny is idolizing Harry. It's like when kiddies today idolize a baseball player. What I've noticed is the way you never mention Katherine's name (only referred to as "Mother") makes her seem really distant. Adding that to I got earlier of her weak and weeping, she seems like a ghost. It seems fitting when we're looking at this from Johnny's life.

Yes, I finally have time to catch up!

What a cliffhanger to leave us with. I wonder if a war has erupted and Johnny'll have to fight in it...
Liriel87 chapter 5 . 6/17/2004
Interesting turn of events. I hope he gets over his umm bastardness soon. . . its not a good thing to dwell on. I wonder what happens when he sees his mum and siblings again. Is Harry at Oxford. . . that would be fantastic. Oh well update soon!
