Gah! I love it. I was always fascinated by their games, both the little fun ones and the large unspoken one. The way she bordered the mindset of both spoilt child and full woman. Just lovely.

Excellent collection of stories!
I recently finished watching the TV series, and I'm quite fond of it. I was disappointed to see that the selection of GORMENGHAST fanfiction was rather slim. However, your characterization of Fuchsia and Steerpike was pleasing in its believability. I enjoyed the different emotions you evoked so skillfully in each of the chapters.
I wish more people were involved in the GORMENGHAST fandom! I suppose I can go read the series, since I've only seen the BBC adaptation...
Thank you for writing.

I saw the BBC series with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and I loved it, but I really wished that there were more Fuschia/Steerpike moments. You've written Steerpike's emotions so beautifully and I can't wait to read more. Well done!

omg this is great! You should continue it. I have only recently seen the bbc version of gormenghast, and I've fallen in love with it. I still have yet to read the books, but I'll do that as soon as possible. Again, this is amazing. There are not enough gormenghast fics on but your writing makes up for that, I think. _

Oh, this is lovely. Some days I feel the only person who loves gormenghast is me.. Good that i'm not. Ah, but I do so love Steerpike.. It's a great story.

Interesting to read a fic from a relatively obscure fandom, I liked some approaches more than others, chapters 2 and 3 were my favourites! I haven't sat down and read any Gormenghast in ages, I've a mind to now!
| Siaynoqsbride chapter 4 . 12/17/2005
That was... incredible. Your writing is beautiful, and the end, just... wow. You have talent!
| Yokel chapter 4 . 12/14/2005
sweet 'n' sour. I like it.
| Fuchsia chapter 4 . 12/13/2005
My god, that is BEAUTIFUL.
Oh, pitch-perfect, read, hardly daring the breathe, lest we shatted the fragile little construct-within-a-construct you build with your lovely writing. It isn't easy building, is it? Peake was too weird to appreciate love...m, oh, blessyou, you magician, and thank God this fic wasn't written when I had my wee 'Gormenghast' obession after finding the Tv adaptation on video, else I'd have gone a little mad and unfocussed. Gorgeous! And so spiky, so many one-lines like stakes on the page to hammer the point home 'she knew he had a heart'. That voice is so very Lady Fuchsia...
