Helena Clara Bouchet chapter 1 . 5/3
I'm sitting here at my desk at work, bored by my labor, and FINALLY came across this drabble (don't tell anyone *tee hee*). I can't recall if you mentioned this to me (you most likely did, but I forgot), and now I read it. This was sweet! Eliot, please drink something for your love-struck nerves, but don't spill it on your students' papers :D
Osheen Nevoy chapter 1 . 3/4
I enjoy the conclusion that the fact that she does not direct her decisive sarcasm at him means she loves him. That does seem to make sense for her character. I also very much respect his thought that she will not be "Mrs. Eliot Stokes" even if (as he hopes) she becomes his wife. Ha, and I also love the subject you have chosen for the paper he is grading, his unaccustomed leniency due to his mellowness caused by thinking of her, and his outrage that anybody would be luke-warm in their reactions to the destruction of the Library of Alexandria! Now, I cannot say that I personally am completely convinced that all of these characters are reincarnations of each other, though since it works for you, that is what is important here. I am much more convinced by the likelihood that Julia and Eliot are right for each other in this life, than by the conclusion that they were also Magda and Sandor and ... Countess duPres and Ben? I guess it is easier for me to see Natalie, Magda and Julia as being reincarnations of the same person, than for me to see Ben and Sandor as being the same person as Eliot. Perhaps this is too close-minded of me; perhaps I should work harder on it, and the essential characteristics of the three of them are the same ... but at the moment I don't yet fully see it. Perhaps you will tell me more of your contemplations that have led you to that conclusion!
