Great story! This was my first foray into Patriot-verse fanfiction and Tavington was always my favorite character. Fabulous job!

I just started this, I'm on chapter 9 so far. Really loving the story. As someone who lives in Charleston, SC, I can honestly say that the heat really is terrible during the summer. I can only imagine how it would have been in this era.

Another incredible story! You have a real gift for writing and creating stories that have enthralled my imagination from the first moment I started reading. Even the appendices were written absolutely brilliantly! If I didn't know any better, I would say that you were writing about real people! Thanks for writing and posting!

I believe I have just spent the last week reading all your patriot stories...
By Gosh woman! You can write!
I'm very selective with whom I offer reviews for, but I really must leave one with you. I have never read any stories on this site that have made me experience such a range of emotion, For Example, Tavington's Heiress...I loved, laughed, cried and hated the characters, and especially with our dear William, I felt a large range of those constantly throughout it. In Arcadia (forgive me for cutting down the title for this purpose) I found Tavington dashing, respectful and most of all, believable and human. I feel the last is the most important. You've explained his character aspects in the most peculiar fashion and the most realistic fashion. I highly doubt that anyone can truly be that up themselves (in the movie) without awkwardness in behaving in society. Each of your original characters had me clinging to their corner, most specifically Julie, who had me in hysterics at times. I sincerely hope that you find inspiration to have another crack at the Patriot fiction once more, you will certainly have an avid reader in me, no matter what you do.
And please, if you haven't already, publish a book, whether it is a historical novel, or otherwise. You most certainly have the talent for it.
I introduced my aunt to this story, as well as my grandmother, and they both feel that any praise for this story is most deserving. I admire your faithfulness to your reasearch and closeness to history.
Sincerely, and always your servant,

What a delightful story! Was not expecting to find such a gem when I started this. I love the sense of completion you build and I'm a total sucker for deep attention to historical accuracy. totally awesome.

*blink* I realize you're working from a silly Hollwood-history event here, but...my, Elizabeth seems completely willing to gloss over what was a hideous war crime...even when Tavington himself knew there were alternatives, things which would occur to her too after only a moment. It really took me out of the story.

This has to be one of the best fictions I've read... I read it in two days and I couldn't get enough of it.
Now I'm going to read your R rated material for this story.
Brilliant story, I'm definately going to read more of you.

I fail to understand how someone like you isn't making a fortune out of writing.
Incredible story this was.

I finally got to the end of this delicious story (I savored every bit of it) and wanted to tell you, again, how much I enjoyed it. It was beautifully written and the chracters were charming and unique and engaging. Now, I'm going to go look at the rest of your stories and see if I enjoy them just as much. :)

I have to admit, prior to reading this story I hadn't really given any thought to the fates and/or circumstances of the American loyalists during and after the Revolution. Maybe it was knowing I've had family here since the Mayflower, maybe it was simply the fact that the subject didn't get much attention in any of my American history classes-which is odd, now that I think of it, as my favorite history professor was born in Britain.
I really liked this story, how it succeeded at humanizing both sides, and reminding me that there are both heroes and villains on any side of a war, as we are all human. I also liked how you so thoroughly and successfully managed to redeem the character of Tavington. Yes, Jason Isaacs is very, very hot, and yes, he is excellent at playing the villain-but even villains need reasons for being villainous, and as a soldier in time of war, there was a certain level of justification for MOST of his actions, both on-screen, in the story, and within his historical counterpart. Also, as I've heard said before, Mel Gibson seems almost determined to be Jesus in all of the movies he's in.
In conclusion, awesome job, and go team you!

P.S.: As I was thinking of Jason Isaacs' past villain roles, I had a hard time visualizing such a composed/intense man saying "Zhao the MOON SLAYER!" with a straight face while recording for Avatar the Last Airbender. Just a thought.
