I love this story.
| blessed-dragon chapter 23 . 6/9/2006
I really liked this chapter. Katie has redeemed herself, I think. The fact that she is letting David and Phillip be together despite the fact she doesn't like or understand their relationship says a lot about what type of person she is. I hope she can reconstruct a good relationship with David.
I'll be looking forward to the next chapter.

y'know, I simply can not bring myself to like Katie. I wasn't very fond of her at the begining, really, and since chapter 18 I've really... 'strongly disliked' her. oof, trying to cut back on using the word hate. and it's not really appropriate in this situation, since I don't really hate her. Is it bad that I understand where she's coming from? of course I completely do not agree with it, but at one point, if I had found out that my brother/friend was gay, I would have done probably the same thing. but still, I can't feel sorry for her, even if her brother just told her that he doesn't love her, and yeah. I was all 'oh snap!' when I read it, and then I was laughing. I'm such a sadist. Am I a bad person now?

Sorry that it took me such a long time before posting a review. I am becoming more and more lazy as time go.
I start to find Katie annoying. The "spoiled child" part was an already known fact but the "jealous" one was quite a surprise. But now that you mentionned it it makes sense. Now what could be interesting is to know if she will accept this side of her personality or if she will deny and keep torturing the poor David and Philip. Well with the current situation you could also make some secret meeting between our little lovers and it ould also be quite interesting. I wonder how all this will end.

Well, there's definitely a lot of plot in this chapter! Actually, I didn't expect them to see each other again this soon but it was once again really well written! I especially liked the beginning of the chapter; interesting to start off with that certain poor Katie! That must have been really hard on her! She certainly has all of my sympathies now. (Why is it that I always start seeing fictional characters almost as real people after a while? Maybe I should start looking at characters in stories with a bit more distance or I might really fall in love with a fictional character on day! *lol* On the other hand, I know that when readers almost see charaters as real people, it just shows that a story is well written. Okay, I should stop rambling now. Good luck with those last exams as well! I'm getting my results (at least for written exams) on Wednesday...

Woah. Just ... woah. Intense, very intense chapter. You pulled that off so beautifully... I even feel sorry for Katie! But I can see that's not it, yet, is it? There's more to it, there has to be! Please update soon, I have to know what happens.

I'm gone for a little while and I miss so much! I guess I'm just so used to authors taking forever to write a new chapter. But I'm back so I can once more boost your ego.
I am really enjoying the new Katie, even though I probably shouldn't be. She's a great, interesting character and while I dislike her, I definitely don't hate her. Primarily I pity her, especially now that David has said that he basically feels obligated to her because of the promise he made with Alice. That's definitely got to sting.
Oh, and I also wanted to thank you for not including a huge three chapter long sex scene between David and Phillip. While there are a ton of good slash authors on here, I think that the majority of them go a tad bit overboard with the sex scenes. Less is more, after all.
You can be sure that I'll be waiting for chapter 23!

Yeah, I wasn't expecting a confrontation.. and ouch! I didn't know it was like that with David for Katie. I thought they got along really well in earlier chapters. I feel bad for Katie now despite everything else. Write more soon please )
| Abstruse Blue chapter 22 . 6/2/2006
Another splendid chapter dispite it all! Well hope your exams are going well and look forward to the continuation and/or conclusion of this story. Lots of love! (by the way the whole entrance scene with Philip and David rushing over to him was absolutely great, I could reall imagine it in my head!)
| ShadowGal chapter 22 . 6/2/2006
*stares, wide-eyed* Oh my. Oh. Poor, poor Katie. I mean, yes, poor David as well... But POOR Katie. *sighs*
This may have been a happy(-ish) chapter for the boys, but I can't be that happy when I feel so bad for Katie.
That's a good thing, by the way. I really, really love this story; have I mentioned that lately?
Oh, and Philip, were he alive today, would totally make a good psychologist. He handled himself quite well, I think.
| Dreddeh chapter 22 . 6/2/2006
Ouch... I feel almost sorry for Katie. Well, I actually do feel sorry for Katie, but being as I like David and Philip more that feeling is eclipsed.
Oh, but that was so good. All your characters are incredibly realistic, and I really like Katie for that realism. But Philip and David are gay and meant to be together, so what more can I say?
You're right when you said many people don't like the history stories however more people really need to read and review this story, because it is just so good. Not that I really need to be telling you that.
The contractions (I knew that was what they were called, honest!) don't bother me, I was just wondering. I don't remember why I was wondering it now...
I only have one copy of Dorian Gray, and no gilded pages either. *deprived*
Anyway, can't wait to see what will happen next.

I just found your story today, you know to pass the time...but I just couldn't stop reading this. It's amazing! When I started reading, I loved Katie's bubbly attitude but then when she got all those notions of sodomy in her head, that made me despise her in an instant. I hope she feels guilty for what she's done and repents. Honestly, Phillip and David should stay together and love eachother without her or anyones soon, because I love this story.
| Marlyse chapter 21 . 5/28/2006
just a not to say I read the chapter and like the story. But you already knew it didn't you ? :)
| Abstruse Blue chapter 18 . 5/27/2006
Wow, absolutely wow! I love this story so far. I am quite fond of period stories and this is one of my favorite eras. So thank you! I'm really enjoying reading this and the characters are wonderful. Awesome language and vocabulary as well! .
| multiples of six chapter 21 . 5/27/2006
But how is he going to see Philip when Katie's around? Well, who cares, they're going to London! Woohoo! That sucks about your exams.. and my name changes aren't over yet, tee hee. I was tyna01 for a long, long time though. I hope you write more soon! )
