This is absolutely beautiful. I love the atmosphere you've created here: you evoke that 'English boarding school' feel so well - and your characterization is perfect.
I adore this. Thank you so very much for sharing.

Oh goodness I adore this.

I was looking for something else entirely, and stumbled over this, and read it again with extreme enjoyment.
O what a good writer you are.

I really like your two chapters. It was well written and I can't wait to see what else you write.

My heart is won. I've favourited this, and am soundl;y hoping for more preferably within the hour! I enjoyed far more than the summary suggested. You have captured so perfectly the mixture of an English boarding school- that intangible combination of Wodehouse, Tom Brown's Schooldays, ans The Loom of Youth (Alec Waugh.) It was so perfectly described, and I laughed my socks off at so much of it. Both Stephen and Jack are precsiely as they are in the novels, not only in the obvious things like the instruments, but in the unconscious mannerisms and thoiughts that they have. A sublime effort, and one which I am hoping to see much more of. As a sidethought Stephen reminds me quite a lot for some reason of Evelyn's Waugh's 'Charle's Ryder's Schooldays.' Damn you for getting such a good idea first, though to be fair, few would have ahd the skill tow ork the idea in this fandom.

Very cute. I do hope you're writing more! -
| Countess Verona Dracula chapter 2 . 4/27/2007
LOL! Just as wonderful as the first one. You've captured that awkward side of Stephen so well; it's one that has evaporated mostly in the books, but he must've been terribly awkward when he was a teenager and it's nice to see it resurface. I look forward to more!

Phenomenal. This is one of those stories that reminds me all over again why I love the M&C fandom - not only are the characters wonderful and adaptable, the authors are on the whole much better than the authors elsewhere, simply because it takes so much patience and intelligence to read the books. I love that you were able to take our beloved characters and plop them into a new situation while still remaining true to how O'Brian wrote them. Wonderfully done, and I look forward to the next chapter!

Oh so nice! A friendship produced by bees, just as sweet as honey
| Schnekk chapter 1 . 9/1/2006
Splendid fanfiction! I love how the character's mannerisms remain basically unchanged, but still fit so well in this new school setting. I had to look up some of the obscurely British words-I finally found out what a 'stone' was! (14 pounds? 0_0) I'd love to read more, and see other characters show up. Keep up the good work!

Brilliant. Giving a highly original and spurious but just as plausible background to Aubreys trust in Dundas and Pullings - si non è vero, è ben trovato. More, please!
| Gaeriel Palpatine chapter 1 . 5/2/2005
Very nice storie! (I was surprised at the beginning but...I like it!) -
| G.Eliot chapter 1 . 4/28/2005
I enjoyed that very much! Stephen and his bees...
Never heard of P.G Wodehouse, but I shall have to look that name up now!
Very well done.
| Belphegor chapter 1 . 4/20/2005
I've never read P. G. Wodehouse's stories, but having read half of the Aubrey/Maturin novels I enjoyed this immensely :o) The cameos from Dundas, Harte (even though we only hear about him - I wonder, if you ever intend to write a sequel, if you would place the affair between Jack and Molly Harte :P ), Pullings, Mowett, Babbington... This is a great story, and I was sad to see it was finished. Am I the first to ask you for a sequel? ;o)
Much of love,
