I was rereading this (as I tend to do every so often because this is one of my favorite ffs) and I realized that I never reviewed after chapter 18! this is one of my favorite stories. you took a fairly unlikeable devious character and a little known supporting one from the movie, meshed them together and wrote a beautiful amazing, lovely story. Each character was written so well especially Adhemar's backstory that explained why he was as his mother put an "ice demon" and him becoming a better man and Adhemar finally admitting and realizing that he loved her at the end. I also liked how you included will and Jocelyn and how their family life is. the last few chapters with the siege were tense and still get anxious when rereading this. even though this story is finished I still yearn to read more and wonder how adhemar would be as a father and how he would act during her pregnancy, like being over protective and coddlinglike will was.

Wow. I am dumbfounded (and pleasantly surprised) that he just quit and wanted to just go home. Another great chapter. This is quickly become a favorite!

Poor lydia. She gets the blame while merrick gets off easy . Hooefully he owns up to it and makes it right

So far I am greatly enjoying this story.
I was curious to see how it would all play out after the movie, the christianna bit being a nice bonus. I was always drawn to her character.
The ending bit about woman is stil true today.
Looking forword to reading the rest!

This is so well thought out and the character development is lovely. You should be proud. People are constantly changing, either for the best or the worst, your story proved that with the utmost grace and wonderful prose. I loved this pairing, completely unexpected but is now my absolute favorite. I got lost once or twice with the perspective change but otherwise was enraptured with every word. Well done:)

I just spent the last few hours reading this entire story. Wow! I really loved it. I also thought there was more to Adhemar after watching AKT and am really glad he got a happy ending in this story. This one is going into my favorites!

I very much liked this story. I've never read fic in the Knight's Tale category before, but I'll certainly continue on the chance that others will be as interesting. The characters are well humanized, believable. Thank you very much for envisioning and telling such an interesting future for them.

After reading the other fic, I simply *had* to see what else you had in store, and I was not disappointed!
This fic was on the same level as the other one, which is a high compliment in my eyes. My only issues with this were that there were some punctuation errors that, judging by your other work, have improved with time. My other issue is that it was often difficult to distinguish when there was a change in POVs, as there was no marker or anything to indicate such. But other than these, the fic was superb. Adding to my favorites and going to look for more!

Oh my gosh, I absolutely loved your story! It was very accurate and catching. You did very well on the grammar and the characters were portrayed to perfection. I found that i enjoyed the story despite the fact the story was first person, which I personally don't tend to like. Your a very talented writer with a very interesting style. Much luck with your writing in the future!

I love the way you use your words and paint a believeable picture of Adhemar and Christiana. Etienne, once given a first name and more of a personality, seems so much more real. I've also been thinking over his tonedeaf-ness, but the thought never entered my mind that it could be that severe.
I noticed someone mentioned the lack of the word "okay" in the story - while I do believe the particular word originated in the 19th century, I think the word could probably fit into the movie canon - after all, Jocelyn did say "wow" in a place, and I'm sure we'll never forget Wat's "It's called a lance, hello!". Point being here that in medieval times, they would have had an expression for those modern words, in one way or another.
Someone else mentioned this, and I agree with that particular reviewer; Will and Etienne would never be friends, but I love the truce they made. Also, curious as I am, I'm wondering what will happen ten, twenty and fifty years into the future with these current couplings, but in a way, I'm afraid to ask, because the ending is beautiful, and sequels rarely hold up to the same standard as the original stories, even if you made a wonderful work of making a sequel to the movie.
All in all, I'm afraid I'm rambling here, but please, do continiue to write fanfiction, and let us all see more of Adhemar.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this story. I almost wish it weren't over.

This story has been one of the best I have read. I have laughed and cried with each of teh characters. You revealed sides of each of them to us that the movie does not show. Thank you for giving everyone the gift of this story.

Bravo! Bravo! That was wonderful from beginning to finish, but the ending was the best of all.
First of all, thank you for realism. I couldn't imagine Will and Etienne actually being friends, but the truce was a perfect solution. You handled their exchange very well. I also like Jocelyn's idea on how to solve to the Beatrice problem.
How you tied up the very end matched how you began.
Well, I could go on for hours, but I won't. The point is, you have a gift, and I hope you continue to write fanfiction...especially for this particular part.

Wow! A great ending to a great story. I do hope you write more Adhemar stories soon! :)
