sophiesix chapter 2 . 4/4/2010
Ailsa's character continues to coming through well here, her indecisiveness, her airyness and so forth. I could picture her whole meeting with James - so close! lol! But on the whole I found this didnt have as much atmosphere as the first chapter. i didnt get a feel for teh forest, for example? Maybe it was the passive verbs, maybe there was a bit more 'tell', maybe its just the inevitable contrast coming down from such a dramatic first chapter - dunno :) But teh pace was lovely and fast and light, perfectly matching Ailsa. nothing dragged, it all flowed well; it was charming and Effie better watch out! XD

ooh, love how you conjure the atmosphere of the ballet: the music, the dance :D. Madge is awesome, love how she just waits for ivor to live up to his brash words. great ending too. and Ailsa's characterisation was spot on, I thought. I always wanted wings like hers! ;) nice!
