Awesome, loved your voices! Especially Odysseus
I especially liked:
"Now, what one does in his own palace is his business, but to ogle so blatantly in another man's home is simply tacky, especially when one's purpose for being in said home is to win a wife."
And the dialogue was very funny, subtle and witty! Excellent!

I was quite surprised to come across this little gem. It's an easy length, with clear characterization, and appropriately witty and amusing dialogue. I also commend you on the conciseness of the story - it's direct, but enough to cause some wonder and carry the reader through to the very end.

Light-hearted bantering, made me smile like crazy. The fanfic world needs more of these! :) Great work!

I don't know what to say. I LOVED IT!

I loved this. It's one of the funniest pieces I've read on , and really, I'd love to see it expanded into a short story about the early days of Odysseus and Penelope's marriage. I've always wondered what that was like. In terms of criticism, I must say that I always think of Penelope as at *least* as bright as Odysseus, especially when it comes to personal relationships. That thing with stalling her own suiters, post-Trojan War - no mere man could ever have thought of that. Odysseus's slyness is for military stratagems and deceiving people, like inventing all those backstories for himself in the Nausicaa episode and with his sheperd on Ithaka. I think that Penelope would have been more likely to figure out the only way to get Helen married safely - really, I like the idea of the two of them building the idea together. Their first creation. Their baby. Which is why Odysseus doesn't want to leave and go out for the War; he doesn't want to watch their baby fail! We! (Sorry, I'm really overtired.) Anyway, this was great, and I loved the character voices. Doesn't Gaiman *rock*?

Absolutely one of the best fics I have ever read. It positively sticks to original lore, and adds a special flair. I enjoyed every bit of it. I hope the author writes more. Magnifique. :)

That was an intelligent portrayal of Odysseus, very much in character. And of course one would think that a man with as much humour as him would get a wife no less cunning. After all, who unwound the threads by night? :)

I don't think the voices are anachronistic as much as they just aren't suitable for ancient, mythological Greeks. I realize that the two might seem to be the same thing, but I'm not sure how else to convey the difference I feel there is. And then to make matters even more confusing, I'm going to say that I *prefer* this to what you would have written, had you tried to write their voices as classical Greek. At least you managed to capture an old-fashioned feel. And it's a sweet story, if you just stop thinking about the time thing.

great, i loved it. Odysseus is my favorite mythological character and i love penelope.
| Cygna-hime chapter 1 . 3/4/2004
...I officially love your Odysseus. Also, the snark factor is most excellent. Must read more.
| Melissa chapter 1 . 2/2/2004
Aww, that was so cute. I adore stories that are true to the mythology and add in just a touch of humor here and there to keep it interesting. I thought your portrayal of Odysseus was wonderfully endearing and really quite clever. My favorite line was undobutedly: "...effectively the same as those of Menelaus."
So, just to let you know it was very good. Keep up the great work!
