ShadowGal chapter 10 . 3/10/2006
Eep! You wicked, wicked, admittedly wonderful and lovely, wicked creature, doing this to me. *sighs* Such an exciting chapter! With races! Whee!

But... but... THE ANGST! In the name of all that's holy, the angst! *sighs* It makes for terrific reading, don't get me wrong, but I want my boys to be -happy-, especially David!

Absolutely lovely chapter, though. It was very nice of Philip to let him win at the end. More important than being nice, however, is the fact that it was the SMART thing to do, at least for now and in the way I see things.

So! Great job, and I'm eagerly awaiting the next chapter. *smiles*

All this talk of society... I could almost imagine that you were actually writing this as an English assignment I once had to do. I don't even remember what my story was about...

Also I love the word fop. Foppish, foppery... Almost as good is dandy. They're such fun words.

I must confess I've never read Georgette Heyer.

Anyway, the story is great so keep it up.

Yeah, you're probably right about the cutting, it's definitely more of a modern phenomenon but David doing it is possible. Speaking of which, what the hell is going on with him? Update! I want to know! )
ShadowGal chapter 9 . 2/28/2006
Congrats on the morphing of characters! I'm glad to hear that there will be more from you, even once this story is done.

Pimpage, you say? Well. I'll do my best, but my friends are generally the (evil) type who read but don't review. Silly things.

As far as the cutting goes... I don't think that you'd find much on the issue dating to back then, but I'm of the opinion that your reasoning is perfectly sound. His sister's method of death would have given him the idea, in all likelihood-and if it didn't/hadn't, well... There -have- to be people who spontaneously began cutting. I mean, nowadays people often -hear- of it, or see it on television, but even back then? Well, I sincerely doubt that there was ever a group of people that sat down and said, "Let's cut ourselves to feel better about life." That means that it started amongst individuals before it became a sort of media sensation. If that's the case now, it'd be the case back then, too.

Moving on to the actual chapter...

Silly, stupid, disgustingly loveable Philip. Rather than seeing the will as confirmation and unknowing encouragement for him to -slowly- pursue David, he just rushes in head-long and impatient. Oi. I'd scold, but it is just like him, and so it's not unexpected. With any luck Philip will wise up soon enough, and David will get over this annoying (but understandable) society thing, and then I can get a (probably temporary, with my luck) break from all this admittedly delicious angst.

*sighs* So. Yes. Short chapter, as you said, but lovely all the same, and I'm eagerly awaiting the next update. Keep up the fabulous work, darling.
Marlyse chapter 9 . 2/28/2006
Well you're right I LIKED the fact that they were friends. But still a little something make me think that they won't stay like this very long. They could even become more closely tight one to another than they were befor. (Does this message mean anything ? I'm starting to wonder…) And I am happy that we will know hat happened to Kate with this storx of flirting.

And there is somethings that bother me. At the end of last chapter you write "no matter what I said, I always wished I could" But I can't find the moment he sais anything like "I can't" each time it's more "I don't want" or "I don't love you". Did I stop searching to early ? Wich part of this story were you refering to by writing exactly those words (if there only is) ?
Marlyse chapter 8 . 2/26/2006
Already the end ? but… but…

I will try to give you something you will understand because I am not too good at english. So I liked this story and I am waiting for the next chapter with … (impatience ? doesn't know how to say it anymore). Those two really are incredible but still it's good that they are friends. And I like story with old society in England (have you ever read Count Cain ? It's a manga from Kaory Yuki, if not you should give it a try I think it could please you). And… ho yes, finally was the heart of poor Katherine broken by the so "vollage" Philip (ok it's terrible but next time I promise you I will look in a dictionary)

The end of this chapter really is funny. Now I think Philip won't let David go like this. I can't stand not knowing what will happens next.

O. People cut back then? And.. and.. the ending though... D Hurry up with that "a lot that needs to happen first".. I want to see some adorableness! P
ShadowGal chapter 8 . 2/24/2006

Okay. I'm sorry. I tried several times to say something more productive than that several times, but the end of this chapter... Well, that's all I could manage, really. It's just... *melts* Seriously, you just keep on surprising me.

This was a lovely chapter, though. Incredibly well written, as I have come to expect... And every time I think that I can't possibly love the boys more? Boom. My love soars up to a new level. *bows down*

Can't wait for the next update! This is certainly one of my absolute favorite stories on all of FP. I can't believe you don't have more people reading it.
Pivoine chapter 8 . 2/24/2006
wow! I almost cry! and the end of this chapter was so beautiful and in a way, really romantic. I love your story because it's sad, full of emotions, sometimes desperate...and David has such a deep personnality! I wonder if Philip has also a dark past...I hope we will have more informations about Philip...hehe I'm really curious! anyway I'm impatiently waiting for the next chapter now! you evil evil author! I feel frustrated!
Pivoine chapter 7 . 2/19/2006
Don't worry, you don't sound clingy! and I want to review each of your chapter (right now when I can do it or later) because I absolutely love your story! oh oh! a duel! I'm happy with the development of your story! The pace is good, nor slow, nor fast. This is great! Hurrah! gr. and you know how it'll go between Philip and David! I'm frustrated!
Pivoine chapter 6 . 2/19/2006
No, I haven't forgotten you, but I was in Florence last week (I absolutely adore this beautiful town!) and I didn't have Internet access...Anyway, I hope you'll forgive me, don't you?

Concerning this chapter, I simply love it! The angst part is not overrated and I think you do it perfectly well! I'm hooked! I've always loved stories with a tragic background! congratulations!
ShadowGal chapter 7 . 2/17/2006
Squee! I got comment replies! *joygasms* I'm glad that my reviews made you happy, dear.

As far as giving you credit in Chapter 1 goes... No such thing! So what if you revised? Think of all the authors on FP who don't. Their constant mistakes annoy me. You didn't have any, and thus I loved you that much more. I appreciate it when people take the time to edit mistakes before they post-or after they have, for that matter. Go you!

On the matter of editing mistakes after posting: I went back to chapter 3 to see the change you made, and it looks much better this way. Good rephrasing on your part.

As for the commas in dialogue, it's sort of like this.

"Thanks," he said, shaking his head as he walked away muttering.


"Thanks a lot, George." He shook his head and walked away muttering to himself.

See the difference? Uhhm... Sorry, I can't think of a good way to explain it right here. I'm not in English Teacher Mode today. *shrugs apologetically* Sorry...

The sister-father thing was "the first" angsty thing? I don't like the sound of that. *glares* Ohh... Who am I kidding. I love well written angst with an undying passion.

I can assure you that, at least to my knowledge, I am not a clone of your friend. It's totally the story's influence. Like... This review? I'm typing it up hours after reading the chapter, since I was running late this morning and had time to read but not to reply. I don't sound anything like my other replies here, now do I.

Okay. Moving on to actual comments about -this- chapter...

I still adore Philip. I adore him overwhelmingly. I do not like Calverleigh at all, which is understandable, but I must admit that I am quite fond of his -name-. Heh heh. So pretty to read and to say!

I wonder if it's strange or bad that I giggled when Calverleigh referred to David as being an "upstart"? It just amused me for some reason, I don't know why.

So. Duel coming up! Whee! Excitement and such! I look forward to it.

Oh, and? Philip at the end of this chapter? OhmigoshIlovehimsomuch! *melts* Seriously. So sweet.

Can't wait for the next update, deary!

Awesome story! A duel.. they better win. And that was pretty crazy about the sister. David & Philip must hook up! And yeah.. I noticed the comma thing too, but w/e. Update soon! )
mandrake-o chapter 7 . 2/17/2006
I stumbled upon this story yesterday and I must say it's brilliant. I love Regency... actually, the entire nineteenth century, regardless of the fact that I spent an entire year in English studying the century.
