I actually enjoyed this. Possibly one of the best redemptive stories so far. Ha, gonna take more than a gunshot to kill Erik

I have read this entire piece, beginning with "Part 16", almost without pause, unable to put it down hardly even to sleep. I wish it could continue with their adventures! Splendid writing, although it does need a bit of editing for grammar and spelling, etc.
A wonderful read. Thank you so much!

What a lovely ending to a wonderful story. It was beautiful and thrilling, so it's hard to see it end. I hope you continue to write more stories on this site.

So glad you brought this back and I could read it again even if it was slightly altered from the original. I found nothing distasteful in the original but a writer must pen what they feel comfortable sharing with others. Hope you dip into the pool again with another story for our dear Erik. I have a passion for different tales about him. There are infinite possibilities and Erik deserves to explore each and every one of them.

Nicely done Rosalie. Leaving him a bit of pride. One mistake i found was this (Philippe grabbed his friend’s elbow). Philippe is dead. I know you meant Eustache. With so littel to complain about I must find something to make this an honest to goodness critique.

Ooh, GREAT confrontation! I'm amazed Erik was able to restrain himself, considering what he had just witnessed.
I am a bit confused by Erik's actions over the time Rosalie thought he was dead. I understand that he thought, perhaps, that life for her would be better if she thought him gone, but what changed his mind? Was it the idea of her pregnancy? Perhaps he just couldn't stay away? (Maybe you've dealt with this and I just don't remember?)
I'm quite curious to see just what Erik plans now. As you described in this chapter, he's always lived at his own whim. How in the world is he going to change that to have a life with Rosalie? I DO see them moving away from France (he's safer that way), but will he truly change for her?
I can't wait to see. :D

Good on you Erik. You conquered your baser instincts. Glad to see Erik has managed to grasp reality and leave the insanity behind.

You're back. And so is Erik! (In a way. ;D)
Thank god Eustache snapped out of his madness. I COULD see Rosalie doing this as a last resort, but I'm glad she didn't have to.
So, Erik loves Rosalie and she loves him. What will happen next? Surely she - as Comtesse - won't be able to marry such a villain and raise him up to her station, yet what sort of life can he provide for her and their child if she gives it all up? Certainly nothing in France. Perhaps a new start in another country, where Erik's past won't matter.
I'm surprised (and pleased) that Erik is excited to become a father. He's generally not portrayed as eager to be a parent. This is a nice change.
I can hardly wait to see what happens next. :D

So glad Eustache came to his senses. If not for the letter he may not have until too late. I do hope he comes through this. In your first version I sort of thought Rosalie's maid might be a mathch for him although they are of different social standing. I don't think that would matter to Eustache in the least. He lost his way for a while but found the right path to tread once more.
Maybe at last Erik and Rosalie can be together and live the life they both deserve with the one they love.

Oops. Rosalie should have screamed the moment she could. I suspect now she'll never have the chance to read Erik's letter. Hopefully it does not give her a time and location to meet.
Actually, I expected Erik to be watching this scene in the bedroom play out, and of course take it the wrong way.
And Eustache. What kind of friend makes those sorts of demands? I don't care HOW frustrated he has become. And his reasoning for his behavior is flawed as well. She should just think of this as something she might do for ANY friend?
But I suppose Rosalie is desperate enough for his "permission" to return to Erik that she would do anything to earn it.
My goodness, what a tangled web you weave. :D
| Hot4Gerry 8/7/09 . chapter 40
Oh please don't make Eustache any more of a cad than you have. He was such an honorable man before. Now you've taken him completely in the opposite direction.
Maybe being such an infallable character as he was before might have made him seem boring but at least he held honor and loyalty above his own carnal needs and wants.
I can't imagine Erik not coming to at least see Rosalie. A mn who had gone without a woman for so long then to have one, one who loved him, that would necessitate seeing her once more if only to prove to himself he had not imagined her in one of his spells of madness.
If you are going for high drama well you are certainly taking this story in that direction. I'll bet there isn't a person reading this who isn't dying to know what is in the letter and what will happen when Eustache reads it.
| Hot4Gerry 7/29/09 . chapter 39
Uh oh. Eustache is about to become evil. I liked him before and hoped he'd find someone to love, just not Rosalie. Surely he won't hurt her what with her being pregnant.
Please don't let him lose all sense of the good man he was before and do think of finding him a woman who can give him the love he wants from Rosalie.
He's becoming obsessed with Rosalie like Erik was with Christine and look how badly that turned out.

Oh dang! You're going to make us wait to see what it is Erik wrote? AUGH!
Nicely awkward dinner. I look forward to Eustache's reaction upon Rosalie's return.
