"She was cheering with the rest of them. You idiot, I thought. You ignorant, lovable idiot." - Haha, this made me laugh and tore out my heart all at once! I liked this very much. Sethos could never really love anyone but Amelia. Well done.

Wow, incredibly good stuff!

I'm a big fan of the Amelia Peabody series and only just discovered that there was a fandom here.
Nice oneshot. It's good to read something from Sethos's point of view, he's such a mysterious character in the books. Don't blame him for still being in love with Amelia...she's awesome!

This is really good! Amelia, Emerson, Ramses - they're spot on. Sethos seems a little too ... wistful, almost, but then I suppose it's his wedding day and he's entitled. Personally, I always wondered if there was a real reason for the mysterious and oft-mentioned resemblance between MM and APE.
Minor nitpick: it's concessions to allow the MARITAL state to flourish, although I'm sure the army would agree with the 'martial' bit...

I like this! I really liked your interpretation of the Sethos-Margaret dynamic and relationship. I wasn't really convinced of it in the books. This is maybe a little bleaker than I would see it - I think he does have more tenderness for her than that, but that she is essentially a replacement. He may have moved on from the urgency of his passion with Amelia, but it is not forgotten.
I also liked seeing in Sethos' mind, since we never get such a chance in the books. Have you written any other Amelia Peabody fics?

AT LAST! An Amelia Peabody fic on this site. AT last.
You have got Ramses very in character there. Although I don't exactly agree with your interpretation of Sethos's relationship with Margaret. I like to think he loves Margaret for herself (he would rather be single than be satisfied with a 'simulacrum' of Amelia, perhaps) but then MPM said it was open to interpretation, after all.
At least I found this. It's good.

Pretty funny, keep up the good work... ( by the way, you sound a hole lot like my friend Amelia just to lets ya knows)
| me chapter 1 . 8/2/2004
hey! I love those books... that was a pretty good story. The dialogue between Ramses and Sethos about David's wedding was absolutely perfect! I was cracking up...way to go

Great! Loved it actually! I'm thinking you ought to write some more Amelia Peabody stuff, cos I've only ever found a few things and that series is great!
