A terrific read. Well done.

Ah, loved this! (Sorry, would sign in and be 'Strange Brew' rather than 'Guest', but am having password issues at the moment. *goes in search of more of your stuff*
| Guest1 2/5/13 . chapter 14
I didn't expect to see this, it's a very nice addition to the story. Thanks!

What a lovely treat for them! I really like the references to the Peter Duck stories as well. Lovely all round!
| huidinigirl 12/9/12 . chapter 13
Really enjoyed reading
| Guest1 12/8/12 . chapter 13
What a sweet ending! Nancy trying to convince her mother she stopped growing was very poignant, and the scene suited* her.
*heh heh. Sorry. That was bad.
| Giraffes4Ever 12/8/12 . chapter 13
Aw! Love it! :) So sweet... But do they end up together? Living happily ever after? I shall pretend they do...
This was an amazing chapter! Really sweet... and... well... I loved it.
| Jenn Calaelen 12/8/12 . chapter 13
Lovely ending! Poor Titty. Nancy and John are very sweet in this.
| Giraffes4Ever 12/5/12 . chapter 12
AW! LOVE IT!
So sweet... They're perfect together.
My favourite line(s) ever has to be:
'Auld Lang Syne was sung.
"Why do people sing it, if they don't know the words?" Bridget asked.
"It's traditional not to know the words." Peggy had replied.'
Perfect. And so so true. Does anyone know the words?
I don't think they can...
The story is amazing, I love all the romantic tension and everything, it's perfect. I mean it.

Aw! Love the play, I'm sitting here laughing! It was amazing! In fact I love all this story so far. Sorry for not reviewing previously, I only found it today...
| Guest2 12/3/12 . chapter 12
This is a great story, and really well written. Thank you!
| Fergus Mason 12/2/12 . chapter 12
Hmm, let's hope nobody else in the room takes Susan's little moral lesson the wrong way...
| Jenn Calaelen 12/2/12 . chapter 12
Lovely all round! Nancy and John are so sweet here.
Poor Titty - she clearly needs to learn more about cats.

Guest 1. Thank you for both the encouragement and the consideration. I'm glad you liked my presentation of Peggy. The attention to visual detail, ability to "do" other people's manner of speaking and handiness with a needle are all there in the books. I think the only things I have given Peggy are being able to sing well enough to get in the school choir (I'm told by those who should know that ability to recall a tune and get accents right go together often.) and a reason for being afraid of thunder (which I did in Baltic Adventure, not this story). Peggy seen through Dick's eyes is a very competent person. I think he is a fairly objective observer.
I'm such a galoot I've only just realised I could reply this in this way and not in a note to the story!

I'm very glad to see someone giving Peggy a bit more of a personality as she's so often placed as a chattering side-kick who's afraid of thunder. I could never quite tell if she was on the Nancy or Susan end of the spectrum, and I've always had the impression she takes more after Mrs Blackett than Nancy (both in the 'takes more after Mrs B than Nancy did' and in the 'personality closer to Mrs B's than Nancy's' way). Thanks for a great story, I'm liking it a lot!
By the way, call me a galoot, but I've only just now figured out that I don't have to have an account to have something in the name box. Now you can keep track of how many people are really reading your stories (unless you can see IP addresses or something, which would be creepy). I'll be Guest #1 from now on (the same one who was upset about the lack of pantomimes in the States).
