I agree the book ending was good... Until I saw the movie ending.

Great details-I love how you write. I want them to be together so much-why does it have to end the other way!

Sweet! I certainly think a lot was going through Mercedes's mind in the scene; you filled what was missing well.
I, however, am glad they didn't get back together in the end.

Yea i hated the ending too. Haydee annoys me. I dont exactly know why. But i loved this. Fluffy with a bit of an edge. ;)

I really enjoyed this! You captured the tension and characters beautifully. The Count would be a difficult character to write, due to the complexity of the story- and you did a very good job of it. Well done!

Beautifully written, and you really captured the emotion Mercedes must have been feeling, that Dumas never really focuses on.
I always found her ending very unsatisfying- she becomes an poor old woman living alone, while her former lover sails off into the sunset with the young and beautiful Haydee, who up until an hour or so before he had seen as a daughter.
(And because as I was reading I thought it would end Dantes/Mercedes and Haydee/Albert and then felt confused when it didn't...)

Lol I totally agree with you about the ending.
This was beautiful! Stark and rife with emotion. I love how you describe Edmond's changing facial expressions seen through Mercedes - what a delightful touch. I really enjoyed the little bit of E/M you put in. You had both their characters perfect.
(groans) it;s so heard for me to find fanfics this good in the Count of Monte Cristo category, by writers with talent who actually read the book. I hope you have more of this when I check your profile - and if not, please do not deprive me! :)

LOVE THIS FIC! You portrayed Mercedes's emotions so well, lovely.
| King Caspian the Seafarer 5/3/10 . chapter 1
Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
The line "He had Edmund's eyes" gave me a chill, and the bit that surrounded it. The plot of the Count of Monte Cristo is so complex already...and you've added a lovely thread with a bit of Mercedes emotion that wasn't quite there in the actual book. I always loved that scene...but now I'll love it even more. ;)
Lion be with you,

Ever since I watched Gankutsuou, an anime based on the Count of Monte Cristo, and consequently remembered the book I read in my childhood more than once, I've been searching – frantically, fruitlessly – for a fic like yours. Thank you so much for writing this one-shot! I enjoyed every word of it, not only because it was focused on my favorite couple and one of my favorite scenes in the book, but mainly because it was such a well written, insightful piece, unlike most Monte Cristo fanfiction I've seen to this day. I liked how you chose Mercedes' point of view for this scene, and I think you portrayed her inner turmoil very well – but also the count's feelings, which I was able to catch a glimpse of. All in all, you did a great job of this piece!
