I am definitely looking forward to a scene with all 5 wives in the same room! Sounds delightful!

I liked this story very much. In your version, Henry VIII is better than the real one. He seems to be kinder and less affected by anger that often blinded him in real life. I guess the fact that many people had died in 1527 softened him.
I am glad that in your story Anne won't be beheaded because she had a son with Henry and because he loves her. I like your version of Anne.
I hope that Anne and Jane could be friends. Now when Jane loves George Boleyn and has two children with him, Anne should no longer be jealous. If they become friends, both Anne and Jane can benefit from it.

What a lovely chapter, and what a sweet ending. I always wish that Anne and Jane could be friends (had things gone differently), and you're bridging the gap of their problems so beautifully here. Well done!

This was great. I've been waiting for the next update for a while, and you didn't disappoint. My favorite possible future plot points: 1)Will Henry and Anne have another child? & 2)What will Mary's wedding and marriage to Duke Philip be like-is in children and other such things? Looking forward to the next chapter.

Awesome work! Loved it all, but my favourite was probably when Anna of Cleves was teaching the ladies German. Cool scene! :) The Jane x George scene was also really well written. I liked all the scenes a lot, but I'm afraid I'm too lazy to write a long comment! But I justwanted to let you know that I love your story! Keep up the good work!

Can't wait for the next chapter, curious to know how Anne & Henry's children are doing.

How could I possibly forget about this story? It's easily one of the best Tudor fanfics, let alone any fanfic, around!
I like this chapter's theme around the daughters, because the women here really help make this story. Poor Nell, both her father and I have little advice for her situation. Mary/Philip is super amazing as always (she should definitely learn some German, if only to connect them and Anna more), Anne is really growing into middle age, and Catherine Knollys! I forget how many children Baroness Mary has, I should research more.
The intridue and romance here is super thrilling, now that Kitty's getting involved with Culpepper and Princess Mary is considering her alliance with Hal Howard...so much drama, so little time to properly squeal over them. I wonder what's going to happen next! :D

Great chapter. It's nice to see some births and the interaction between all the characters. I'm glad Anne and Jane's relationship seems to have improved and that Mary is excited about her upcoming wedding to Philip. Jane's plotting regarding Kitty and Thomas Culpepper probably won't end well though. Looking forward to more.

A brilliant story, and I love how it focuses on so many people. It's interesting to see how things might have played out if Catherine had died naturally, especially in regards to Mary's relationship with Anne - she was younger and less entrenched in Catholicism, as well as meeting Anne first as the King's friends, rather than the woman who supplanted her mother. The whole story is well written and shows how things could change in both large and small ways if Henry had received a wake-up call. Additionally, while just a small thing, I have to mention the ongoing mentions by Frances of her link to God, it's very amusing.
I'm not sure if Hal Howard should regain the duchy - it would be a great plot point, but it would also make him quite dangerous. I'm loving the Mary/Philip storyline and hope it works out for them in the end. It's interesting to see Anna of Cleves - the start of a friendship with Suffolk is nice.
Definitely looking forward to more.

I enjoyed this fic. What I love most is how unpredictable things are and how it's not just Anne/Henry love story, it's also about Henry's court and England and how even if Anne gave birth to a son, it does mean things would go in a fairytale way. This is one of the biggest problems I usually have regarding a Tudors AU fic, once Anne has a son it robs their stories momentum and, if I dare say it, suffer from dull storytelling.
Your fic in the other hand reminds me and the readers that even if the dynasty is saved it is by no means truly safe. Children could die and I was heartbroken by how you reminded us of the realities back then: Anne and Henry's reactions to the death of their babies struck me as it had never before. Also, I love how you weaved all these characters together and how each of their roles (and their divergent personalities) felt so refreshingly real and grounded. I liked how Anne and Henry still quarelled, like most couples, how Princess Mary is kinder than her real life counterpart and how all the courtiers and aristocrats wove in the Tudors universe.
And I love, love, LOVE how you did not demonise characters that are usually demonised in these settings. I liked how Jane Seymour was treated fairly (which sadly many tend to treat her like 'the other woman' without irony) and how Jane Parker had depths I never realised before. It made me care for them in ways most Tudors fics did not. My only crit is that some times you would use, what I think, felt like modernist sentences, like, "Man, I love you" or "Hello", which tend to drag me out of the story. Aside from that this fic is beyond flawless and deserve all the love.
I can't wait for the next chapter.

Good I love how your story is progressing do write more, I want to see more Mary/phillipe
| Guest 4/25/13 . chapter 48
Very good story. Intriguing. I like the way you present the politics of it actually. Really good.
| Me 4/11/13 . chapter 48
No don't kill Jane Boleyn with childbed fever! II love George/Jane! Jane Parker & George don't even like each other either not for them.

Hal cracks me up. I thought Nell & Frances(she's pregant with Katherine, Jane should already be born she's not much older than Edward) & Mary had a plan to convey Hal's little misdemeanors to Henry through Charles. How did Hal stay a step ahead of them and charm Mary? Does he have spies? He's too good, he should never be Duke ever in his life!
