I'm actually doing this musical at my acting group (Stepmother just in case you were wondering) I read all six chapters so many times. One of the best fanfictions I ever read. Some things I don't like, but over all it's very good. I have a few suggestions though for a plot line later in the story.
I noticed how you use some excripts of the songs from the original musical (and some from Once on This Island, another good musical) I was thinking when you get deeper into the plot line concerning the beast, why not have a confrontation with his father (weather it is just a vision, ghost or an actual face to face conversation) why not put in the song "No More" It would be a good thing to use between the Beast and his father who abandoned him.
Another thing, I made some fanart for your fanfiction. Is it okay if I post it up saying it's based after your story? Thank you and please reply back.

This was very long, yes, and I wish I could have found more time slots to get around to reading it. Your writing is very descriptive- Yet, sometimes, I think you get a little TOO much, and the reader starts to get slightly bored. Maybe that's why your paragraphs are always so long.
...But, yes, I did enjoy this chapter. :) On to the fifth!

I like your story very much! I only feel it fair to ask, may I possibly use some of your story telling devises? Like, the narrator opening the story and things like that? It's just you inspired me so much! :)

I felt so bad for Brina this chapter D: she went through so much to be with her prince...and he has no idea who she is. it's heartbreaking :C which just proves how good a writer you are :) I can not wait for more.

Another awesome chapter! I loved it! And I like all of the backstory you put in there! I like Brina's fascination with everything, and I like how you immdediately established that Chandler WASN'T like his father or uncle. So, he's going to be a bit more like Eric, then. And I loved the discription of the Witch's cave, and the potion, and the transformation, and the taking of the voice, and EVERYTHING! And, I hope I'm not alone in the thought that Giovanna is a little crazy. I think seeing Rapunzel being stepped on by a giant made her crack. And how did she survive? I always assumed that she died after she threw away the beans in Your Fault/Last Midnight. I guess she was transported to a cave. Huh. Interesting story twist! Update soon!

I loved this chapter, as well. :) Wonderful job, although it would be useful if you used dividers.
| music4evah chapter 2 . 6/29/2010
This is a brilliant story. :) However, I find some of your paragraphs are... Well, VERY long. Some of them could definitely be separated a little bit. Also, I think it would be better to use italicizing instead of bolding when you write.
And as a final tip, please to write 'flashback' and 'end of flashback'. It's kind of pointless and annoying.
But, other than that, this was wonderful. :) (No, I will not be mad because the Baker's kid was really a guy.)

Oh, this is much better than my failed attempt at a fairytale story. I'm enjoying this. :) I think you had... Maybe 2 typos. Nothing major. And altogether, quite a wonderful first chapter.
I absolutely love your pen name, by the way. :)

This is a really well written story :) I look forward to reading more~

Awesome! Sorry I haven't reviewed sooner, but my computer is being uber wierd, so I haven't been able to go on a lot lately. But I absolutely LOVED this chapter! I feel really sorry for Chip and Cinderella. And Roule makes me want to puke! What a pig-head. Update soon please!

Wow. Great chapter. I wonder what's going to happen next? Can't wait!

I'm loving this... Into the Woods is one of my favorite musicals, and I think you're continuing it the way it ought to be continued.
PS: I can understand Ludwig without the translations. It's kinda fun! :-)

Okay, this is quite entertaining, and you can't believe how happy I am to read a continuation off of the play. My high school is performing Into the Woods (there was a performance tonight, actually) and I'm in the pit orchestra (I play flute) and really enjoying that. So I'm slightly obsessed with Into the Woods at the moment.
Doubtless things will become more deeply intertwined, but I can't wait for everyone to end up running about and making the story a lot more complicated than it has to be. I'm guessing that Brina will take a journey into the woods once she gets legs?
Also, I'm curious as to what version of the Puss in Boots story you are using. Isn't Puss in Boots supposed to be the sole inheritance of a third son, who ends up amazingly prosperous because his cat is a genius? Will Beauty end up fitting into that role?
I liked the sudden move to Once on this Island music. And if you are intentionally having Brina be the type to instantly fall in love (like she seems to have done), Once on this Island actually shows a very good example of that same tendency. So it fits.
Speaking of which, please make as much fun of the whole "love at first sight" cliche as possible. I will be extremely happy. 3
Um, one writing tip: don't announce a flashback or the ending of a flashback so obviously. Readers will figure it out quite easily if you just stick the word "had" somewhere in the first sentence of a flashback.
I hope to read more soon! Happy writing!
