The two of them ARE similar, in all the wrong things I think...but it makes it that much more satisfying that they can care about each other despite it...
I love the detail and depth you give to their characters, each little piece feels like its for actual people, actual personalities, not just little one-shots to fill up space.

Oh, I loved these! Each one was so well-written and showed all these different facets of their relationship, which is complicated to say the least. A particular favorite of mine would be "Would Have" - just because the letter, to me, described the love-hate aspects of their relationship oh so perfectly. :)
(And also this last one, "Heartache" - I do love the idea that the first tattoo England gets is one that's meant to conceal a scar France had given him.)

A really lighthearted chapter is always welcome, whether the content is strange or not. And this was very welcome.

This is one of my favourite ones, really.

I liked this chapter a lot, especially the last few lines...
I always thought Elizabeth should have more of a role with England...her and Victoria too, perhaps. Like Jeanne d' arc for France...I don't know...

Hot and cold, yes...the song does suit! XD

The parallel situations idea is a really good one, and I think you'd do it really well.
I love that the final/actual scene is a mix of the two and its own standalone...

All the saying used against each other was fun. And I really think I'm getting better at understanding French thank to you. I'm serious, I don't even have to stop and find translations for the things France says any more...except, okay, this particular saying...but still.

The way the characters turn from country to person and then co-exist at the same time...I've never read anything quite like it, except in your works. It's so skilfully done.

I love how history ties in so magnificently with personal emotions and feelings here!
| Readers-Section chapter 29 . 1/14/2011
Yes, it makes a lot more sense now. This idea of Night and Day is intriguing...

English is a funny language...this was cute, and I can imagine very easily that France would be irritated if he wasn't taller than England. (Oh, if for some time he was SHORTER...)

The sequels are so good! Great idea.
| Readers-Section chapter 14 . 1/14/2011
You put all these different emotions, and it's just two characters, but it feels like facets of their personalities, not unnatural...gaaaah, what I'm trying to say is that you are an amazing, amazing writer.

This was beautiful.
