| Shellea Holck chapter 7 . 2/7
Anagrams are fun, but this story was funner. (Lalalala this is me drowning out your inevitable "funner isn't a word" thought). I loved it, and would love a SEQUAL. I'm an avid fairy tale retellings fan, and a avid afterstory fan. (Lalalala don't even dare think "afterstory isn't a word either"). :D. Thank you for helping procrastinate so masterfully.

A delightful retelling! Thank you for sharing this!
| Hillmorrr chapter 7 . 1/31/2013
Nice spin/twist! (Could not resist the pun...) Thanks for sharing!

Well, I suppose he could have been Russell Kimptint...
Cute twisting of the old tale. I always thought Good old R should have been the hero.
| P.E.E.V.S.Y chapter 7 . 6/27/2009
I like this. I really, really like this. :) It's funny and the characters are great and I especially loved how you put the Rumplestiltskin story within this story. Also the end, where they lived happily ever after was just fantastic. Great job. :-D

Bravo! I don't think I've ever read a modernization of Rumpelstiltskin and I'm a sucker for modern fairy tales, so I think I can say I'm going to have a nice read. :)
Very nice opening chapter; it provides a very brisk, to-the-point setup. Your description of Mr. King was brief but very effective, I think, whereas Mr. Miller is rather classing. Waffle iron... heh heh... and I certainly like the modern twist regarding stock trade.
And I'm interested to meet Rachel. She sounds like a delight, despite her misfortune of having such a father.
The chapter definitely gets the ball rolling. It's quite brief but I think it's a nice opener. Onward!

Hmm..highly amusing. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Makes me want to go right a Rumpelstiltskin spin.
| Ryan Brooklyn chapter 7 . 12/5/2007
This was funny, delightful, and wonderful. I really enjoyed it. I've always admired people who can take a fairy tale and modernize it. Absolutly fantastic (as is all your work). :-D

This was a surprisingly refreshing breath of fresh air; thank you for sharing it with the community. It was lighthearted and absurd (but not to the point of eye rolling) incorporating stubborn love, creepy/cute little people, and modern day into a fantastic fairy tale that had previously been very overrated. You cast it into a new light; Brava!
Lovely! This one is definitely hitting the favorites list!

Yeah! cliches going down!
FINALLY a version of this where the heroine has some spunk!
the anagrams were kinda cute, and I really didn't get the character Herman, but this was good!
| TigerSJP chapter 7 . 1/13/2007
This was a nice, quick read. I found it highly enjoyable, especially the twists and updates to the fairytale. Who knew Rumplestiltskin owned a Palm? I got a little confused about the fox statue/rug that she lays down on. Also, how is it that P.K. can magically appear? Anyhoo, loved the ending. Keep writing!

original, smart, witty, and cute

You know me from Batman Begins, but I didn't realize that I knew you from this first! I read it a while ago, and thought it was absolutely brilliant, but I can't think for the life of me why I didn't review! Perhaps it was because I read it during the summer, when I'm less able to review (I'll have to print out a story and take it home with me, because my dad doesn't have internet access at his house, and then I'll forget to review the next day.) Anyways, I thought it was wonderful through and through, and (re)discovering that you wrote this has made my day! I love these modern fairy tale adaptations. They're gorgeous. Okay, I'm done gushing and rambling and overall berating you with psychobabble.

I really, really liked this! You brought it into the modern era well, and the anagrams were brilliant. As soon as you mentioned Prestin Kimstull the 8th, I figured that he would be the hero/romantic interest/whatever, but the ending was really good, and so was the banter. Prestin's snarkiness was a refreshing change from Max's suave horribility (I don't think that's a word. Oh well.) Tell me, though- do they really live happily ever after?

aww I REALLY liked this fairy tale! The little summary of the original to introduce the chapters worked beautifully ) more! more!
