Well, after finishing this one, I have to say that I don't like it as well as "Kissed by a Rose". I think that it's because the Beast doesn't really seem all that bad. I mean, there's a few moments of stubbornness and some scenes of unpleasant attitude towards the slaves, but as a whole, even from the beginning, he was a charming and teasing personality that I liked right away...which made the curse feel undeserved. Granted, it wasn't nearly as bad a curse as being 'transformed into a hideous Beast', but even so. I also found it a little unrealistic that no one in the house had ever stumbled across the hidden cellar with the body in it, yet Lizzie found it in a single afternoon.
But other than that, the story was pretty good. Lizzie was a delightful character who kept making me think of Lizzie from Pride and Prejudice (partly from the similarity in the name, but she had the same spunky spirit as well). The setting of the Civil War also seemed believable and well-portrayed. The slave accent didn't mesh quite well with me (not sure why), but they made up for it with all their spunk.
All in all, it was a nice read, and an interesting take on the classic story!

Haha, I'm glad that you answered my question in the next chapter! It's funny that even Colman admits that he hasn't figured out how certain details of the curse work yet.

I am very much enjoying this story so far, but I have to ask, how is the Master able to sit down? Shouldn't he pass through the bed? Or is that part of the fine print of the curse?

Aw. It's so obvious that the daddy is Colman, and the little girl is his daughter.

Just so you know... five years later, this is [still] an amazing story. Definitely love how you interwove B&tB and the Civil War (of all things!) together. Skillfully done.
Thanks for writing and posting this :)

My mom got me a book about the women solders of the civil war and there were lot's of interesting tales of Daughters of the Regiment and disguised women solders. There was a story of how a Daughter of the Regiment and a solder got married and one where a a women solder wasn't discovered until she decided to retire, when she put on a Daughters of the Regiment uniform. Also, there was a 10 year old Daughter of the Regiment that everyone loved very much and she could even say this one speech or pledge from memory. it was cool.

I am really, really, REALLY liking this version so far. It's a fairytale, yes, but it is also REAL, in a way.

I wish I could offer a witty or clever comment that would accurately sum up my enjoyment of this story, but sadly I cannot.
Thank you for sharing this.

I loved the eirines of the gate just standing there and again with captain redgrave I think I've found the villain but now quite sure yet
It's getting very interesting :D
| RosesnWater chapter 2 . 10/19/2011
Second chapter even better
I think I got chills from Capain Redgrave though...
but my favorite was when he talked to her and Lizzie just went 'damboiunasty' and left XD
