This is both one of the most heartbreaking and one of the most uplifting Mash fics I've read so far. Incredibly well done xx

This made me cry so hard! It was beautiful. I really hope if reign goes as far as her beheading, she somehow escapes in the end.

Oh. Oh. I just can't...Wow. There are absoluetely no words. Just...None. Mmm..Okay. I can manage a review. I'm thunderstruck by how beautifully written this is. And after just finding out about the Bastian theory (OMG!) I can't help but be floored with how wonderfully put together this is. Of course, after hearing the Bastian theory, I'd hoped that since she was Queen and married Scots, she'd at least be able to have a lover without question and that they'd be able to be happy together while in Scotland. Of course, that was when I wasn't considering that historically she'd have to die. And then LOLA! I've got chillbumps all over just thinking about it. Because it's perfect (devestating, but perfect) and then Mary and Bash can be together always and forever and have goats and play on the beach and be happy. Except for the DEVESTATING HEARTBREAK OF IT ALL! Ahem. Anyway, thanks so much for sharing you work with us and giving hope to all the Mashers. My God.

Nicely written! This was well written. Depressing, but a good story!

This is seriously the most beautiful, heart wrenching Mash story that I have ever read.

Damn, that was depressing as hell. Very vivid and emotional fic. Geez, when Bash said he wouldn't even be able to hold her hand and they wouldn't be able to look at each other? That was painful. Y'know. 'Cause that's what they *do*. Oh, the way they look at each other, and hold hands/touch. So, thanks. Thanks for twisting the knife! :P But my sincere thanks for not ending your story at the point where Bash tells Mary to wait for him on the other side. They get a happy(ish) ending. And, sure, I think a happy(ish) ending is more satisfying after some hardships first but...that's just brutal. I have too many warm squishy fuzzy feelings of love and protectiveness towards Mary & Bash. Why do they have to be so damn loveable, and why do they have to keep getting hurt, huh?!
I really hope this Bastian theory is wrong... although I can totally see Bash protecting Mary through the years, and 1x11 could be foreshadowing it when he promises to cut down anyone who threatens, terrorizes or harms her. If Reign is planning to go in this direction I only hope Bash gets rid of her abusive husbands ASAP, 'cause I can't take much (any) of that. I do like the idea of Lola taking Mary's place and saving her life. Lola owes her anyway (still haven't forgiven her for the Colin thing), and whoa, what if the writers were foreshadowing Lola dying in Mary's place? Remember when she told Bash (She told Bash! Bash knows this so he *could* come up with the idea to kill Lola to save Mary!) ...anyway...remember when Lola told Bash she wasn't afraid of dying anymore, only of being alone? :-o And remember how she wore that Norse goddess costume with the angel-like wings? Well, to be specific, she was dressed as a Valkyrie, aka, an Angel of DEATH. Um. Whoa.
I should probably be posting this somewhere else, not in your review, I'm sorry. :P Brain's working overtime. This Bastian theory...and Lola theory... and your fanfic, seem eerily plausible. I'm starting to believe it. Don't like it though. I want Mary & Bash to get married and she can teach him how to be a king and scold him when he's flippant (cute!), and people can keep trying to kill them (exciting!), and they can keep saving eachother (romantic!) ...Or I want them to run away together and forget about royal duty entirely, and find a cottage somewhere with goats to milk and trees to climb and mud to frolic in. Kinda like the end of this fanfic, but without all the unbelievably horrific PAIN. But I know I'm just dreaming. Dammit. That Lola thing is cool though. :P

Can't type. Crying. :( I do so love your happy Mash fics, but you can obviously write angst very very very well too. I just learned about this real-life historical figure, Bastian, and the fan theory that Bash might be based on him, and I was feeling so happy thinking, hey, this means Bash will outlive Francis! This means he'll be with Mary in Scotland! Mash endgame! But now you've reminded me of the sad facts of Mary's life in Scotland and OH GOD IS THIS HOW THE SHOW IS GOING TO GO?! Of course. The writers love to torture Mary & Bash. I don't think I can stand to watch Mary suffer through this kind of abuse - or watch Bash watching her suffer. Arrgh! And we might not even get as happy an ending as you provided. Although I'd like to see Lola be more loyal to Mary than she has been, so yes, her being beheaded instead of Mary would be a happy ending to me. But so much suffering before then! Maybe we'll be lucky and Reign might get canceled on some other cliffhanger? Yeah, that's a cheery thought. Sorry for talking more about the show than your fic! I'm just too emotional right now to be coherent. Good fic, really! Thanks for breaking my heart!
