I have absolutely adored this story and now am distraught to find it is unfinished! I particularly loved how you did in Mr Collins in such a wonderfully stupid and pointless way - very fitting! I'm sure I must be going to the Big Bad Fire to have enjoyed someone's death so much ;-) I shall just have to assume Charlotte and Fitzwilliam eventually got their Happily Ever After.

wow great writing and story line and I hope there will be more chapters to come. Its interesting that your using proper places in the time line and doing all that research just make the story all that better :)

This is one of the best stories i have read. I literally devoured the seven chapters so far, and have been repeatedly ( and i guess rather religiously) been coming back every few weeks to see if you had updated. 'what was to be done' indeed!
Please please dont give up this story. You have wrapped your words in old english so beautifully, it almost wants to make one wax lyrical oneself.
Great work, and Keep it up and here's to romance prevailing over Victorian propriety!

awesome story i would love to see you pick it up again and finish it

This story is so great! Too bad you have not finished it. Very disappointing. :(

The Colonel, oh that man, is so very genuinely delightful. He is thoughtful, kind, caring, and interested in the comfort of the children. There isn't another word, I really feel. He's delightful.

Charlotte is wonderful. I really am enjoying how the Colonel is learning this through every action he witnesses and moment he spends in her presence. I also need to say that I love this story as it is very much completely awesome.

I feel a little bit guilty; there haven't been many times when a character's death has made me anything other than utterly bereft. I am very much in favour of this development between the Colonel and Charlotte. I love that she is a whole character and a mother. Little bit of guilt but not much to be completely honest.

A lovely story, very well-told. I know it isn't finished, but thank you for writing and posting what you have. It was obviously a joy to you to write, as it is for us to read. Thank you!

Oh dear! I must be frank with you...I love this story and am so sad you did not continue it. It's interesting, I love the pair, and stays true to the age. Could you possibly reconsider and continue writing it? Please?

"No, Mummy, just the Captains!" - Too cute! And a three year old would try such a ploy to suit his purpose!
Arggghhhh! You've stopped writing this? For shame! I did so want to see the "unromantic" Charlotte to have it sneak upon her unaware. And for both Charlotte and Fitzwilliam to find some happiness.
You write quite well, and it would be a shame if you don't pursue it.
...the very devil was snapping at his heals. - "heels"
...that old dragon in the kitchen will just have to exceed to my demands! - "accede" rather than "exceed"
...He deserved to be striped of his rank - "stripped"
| Deandra chapter 7 . 3/7/2011
Not ghastly at all. Of course he would be rather appalled by his behavior, and thinking himself quite ungentlemanly to be so presumptuous. But I'm not sure that distance is going to help very much!
...he would be breakfasting with the children in William's room and remove the 'that' she was not to bestir herself before nine at the earliest. ? - not sure what you mean here. You put 'that' in the quotes but I'm not sure why...
...Charlotte edged closer and was all to aware - should be "too"
several other words have typos in them, but I didn't keep track
