Your prose is fantastic and could pass for Sherwood's writing...it's so detailed and the dialogue is witty and clever. I loved how you explore the more mature themes of what it means for Mel to marry Vidanric. Not only for love, but the sacrifice and responsibility she has as queen. I enjoyed every moment of this fic. Thanks for writing!

I would just like to point out that this sentence is just all too perfect 'To all appearances, two failed coups and one exhausting courtship with a certain headstrong Countess had finally caught up with him.'
I sometimes suspect that the reason for the rather abrupt ending has to do with the fact that Danric likely collapsed from exhaustion shortly after, if only for my own amusement. Because honestly, how is the man still awake, let alone functional? But, I digress.
Very amusing and insightful. Wonderful writing that was an enjoyable read.

You're a wonderful writer. I've never read anything in this fandom before, but I've read Crown/Court Duel and this fits in perfectly

Great story! I love this idea, and your execution was perfect. Not out of character at all, IMO. You are an amazing writer.

That's so cool! Great way to end it, in a circle. I loved the story! It was so romantic and very well-written!
| Nerds United chapter 1 . 8/9/2008
Oh! Exquisite! Dare I hope that the title is an allusion to Debussy's scrumptious "Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune"?
Perhaps that is too much to hope.
No matter. This is a wonderful piece. It is elegant, characteristic, and enormously gratifying!
Vidanric's dry humor is perfect! Everyone is in character! This brought several smiles to my face. The dialogue is perfect. Wonderful writing!
This is a beautiful and well-written piece. I did not see any errors! Your grammar is impeccable. I'm quite jealous!
