Im pretty sure that the best part of this story is the sibling dynamic youve got going on here - definitely fun, and the fact that everyone acknowledges the *ahem* limitations of the eldest son, but in a loving way, makes this absurdly cute )

I just love this story!

I'm sure I usually review under another pename here but I can't be bothered to remember it.
I'd be a bastard if I didn't review. Those who haven't already are, in my books.
In other words this story had me grinning like a fool the entire way through, sitting in the dark with my feet propped up on my desk, way past my bedtime. Oh, and let it be known that I should've used the valuable time to study. Fie on that. I must mention that this isn't the first slashed version of the Princess and the Frog I've read but I must say it was tons more refreshing and funny than the other one. I think I enjoyed yours more by spades.
For some reason, after the first scene with Alicia, Kay was this adorable guy (I actually thought he was 6yrsold to begin with XD), slightly childish and really, he's a sweetheart so who the hell cares what he looks like (since we all know he's gonna be drop-dead gorgeous), which basically reads: I barely recall what the poor guy looks like and in my head is some black-haired, green-eyed beauty. Please don't take offense if this is nothing like the description as I can't be bothered to comb through the fic and find the proper description, and ruin this wonderfully quirky review. I hope you won't- take offense, that is.
In my head Lionel is tall and lean and blond. And has funny braided hair/dreads. Although I did make a real effort to picture his clothes, which to me is: a midnight-blue set of troubadour gear. So basically, he is a sexy, hippie minstrel of sorts. Again, my apologies.
I really did love Kay. Brilliant- I'm running out of words for adorable- little guy with a petulance that makes me smile. I also love how, despite the relative shortness of this fic, you still managed to flesh out all the characters. Save, perhaps, the King- but then he's a boring old git so I don't really mind ;p. Allie was a masterpiece and Darren was cute too. I also loved how you tried each of their duties in the kingdom with their personalities perfectly. Small detail, but it did not go missed. Tristan seemed very jock. But a sweet guy nonetheless.
Ok, now, favourite scenes:(and these are only the ones that stick in my mind for now)
1) The opening scene with the zombies and falling off the bed and distracting Alicia by complimenting her and all that. And since I thought both Allie and Kay were kids, the thought of say, a 9-year-old Allie marrying someone or going off on a quest was hilarious. Although by the end of the paragraph I kinda figured they had to be a little older. Still, the image of kids hasn't left me. (Ooh! I also loved the siblings' relationship which was wonderfully realxed and not horridly stiff and formal as regency childhoods usually are.)
2) Although somewhere in my sleep-deprived mind I knew this was coming, the scene where they find Lionel with the arrow in his mouth. I think I LOL'd.
3) Alicia's screeching in the hall. (Grief, I might end up summarising the entire story at this rate). I could hear the screeches in my room, reverberating off the walls. It was probly due to this that the fact Lionel could speak wasn't as big a shocker as it should've bin (I was too busy snorting).
4)All of Kay's little outbursts at being ignored by his father etc.
5) Kay teasing Darren bout Ella! Sho cyute~ That had to be my most FAVOURITE scene by far, heck i'm smiling just remembering :D
6)Kay swatting human Lionel and that general scene. Oh, and him getting into a snit for Lionel ditching him.
7) Kay yelling at the entire court to STHU and then roughing up poor Lionel (who I'm sure already bruised his knees by kneeling for so long) before saying yes.
This isn't exactly a scene, so it doesn't belong on the list but I also liked how you made it semi-realistic (as realistic as it can be in a slash fic) in that at least there was a degree of shock and surprise at Kay swinging the other way. You find some fics where you half expect all the men in the kingdom to be gay, and then how in hell would there a new generation? Yeah, so points for semi-realism too.
It is safe to say I have never, in the history of forever written a review this damned long (halfway through I considered saving it to word and continuing tomorrow, but seeing as it is tomorrow I'll continue). And I acknowledge I probably make no sense what so ever. It's the wee hours of the morn where I'm sitting so I deserve some allowances. Pure rambling here, but if, on the off chance you no longer like this piece of work (I know I already find some of mine stale), then let it be clear that I am addressing this review to the writer you were when you wrote this. Haven't checked the date of this fic, nor the rest of your gallery so I don't know how this fares in comparison with what you may be penning now. I think I need sleep.
IN CONCLUSION (coz this really is too damned long) I LIEKED EET. And I hope this review at least made you smile by its sheer stupidity if nothing else. Note: I can'e remember half the things I've written.
Badly in need of verbal constipation,

OH MY GROODNESS YOU'RE A PRATCHETT FAN!
Sorry, had to get that bit out of the way. I love your writing style and am glad I stumbled across your stories.

This is the cutest! I love twists to fairy tales, especially when they are rewritten with slash couples *_*

aw, this was a cute fairytale, lionel was a gentleman even if in frog size, and the kind is too damn rude, ignoring him and Kayton when he mentioned about the weddings, just because he's not human.
It was good they had their enthusiastic kiss when Lionel was a human, I don't want to think what exactly would kay say if he had to kiss a frog. No matter how much he liked Lionel, I don't think he would appreciate the idea... lol the shooting arrows in different directions is an old fairytale thing, but it worked nicely here. Although it was his brother's fault, he has to admit at least that...
allie seemed a tad bit spoiled but I guess it's normal since she's a princess. Kay was the modest brother, the simple yet beautiful one. It was fantastic to see Lionel giving him the cloth, the bread and all those objects even though he didn't knew how the frog did it... ku ku ku... I also liked how you added small fairytale subjects, like the trolls believing the time flew backwards, and such .

I loved the concept for this, and the ending was great!
Lovely story. :)
| Julie chapter 1 . 9/4/2009
I absolutely loved your take on a well knowned fairytale!
I've read this story several times and I can just picture Lionel and Kay together.
Thank you for sharing this very well written fairytale :o)

I totally loved this story. The siblings had such personality and character, with their little quirks and habits. Loved Darren's confession to get the woman he wanted -that just made solidified his position in the palace for me.
Love Alicia for the temper and quick sarcasm. Loved, most of all, Kayton for his gentle nature and unassuming ways, his artistic inclinations were a nice bonus.
Reading this from his perspective made it a little frustrating in places because I'm not of the same temperament -but that just makes me applaud you because you made him so believable that I felt passionately about his character and his contrasts to me. His protectiveness of Lionel was just sweet -I could relate to that. And how he dealt with the proposal when it finally came was just so dramatic but so him, that I was grinning at my screen the entire time he waited for his siblings' approval.
Loved the ending and the way you tied it all together from your own earlier humour about Happy Endings and fairytales. Love your sense of humour, by the way. Loved this whole story that I'm adding it to my favourites.
Thank you for sharing, and happy writing!

That's so sweet! I love it!

If you don't mind me beta-ing I read: "Kay had called her hair ‘red’ once and had never quite slept easy again after what she had put in his bed." None of these hads are necessary since you said once. 'Kay called her hair ‘red’ once and never quite slept easy again after what she put in his bed' makes just as much sense.
"feature of he crowd." the?
"his eyes too were fixed" I think the 'too' should have commas before and after.
“I’m CURSED now?” An extra line between the paragraphs.
That is a ingenious way to give an info dump without halting the story in its tracks.
"made his younger siblings sigh" older?
Very good. I'm glad Kay yelled at Lionel, he deserved it after embarrassing Kay like that, but of course he also will make Kay very happy.
