Well... honestly, I didn't really like it. Anne was surely angry and frustrated at this time, but I don't think she was that... brutal. Jane is my absolute favorite queen and I can't keep myself from getting a little angry over Anne's thoughts of her. But still, you did a good job!

I really liked how you portrayed Anne here. Her emotions got across really well, as did her thoughts. Although there are a few errors, I still really enjoyed this. Well done.

I think you give a really good sense of how Anne was feeling here, and her confidence in herself and her position - although you gave a sense too that she was trying to reassure herself that she would win in the end.

There are some tense and grammar issues, but on the whole, this is a really good fic.

Usually exclamation points annoy me in stories, but your use of punctuation really helped get across Anne's thoughts; I could vividly imagine her anger. Wonderful job at getting Anne's confidence across without explicitly stating it. Although there were a few grammar mistakes, the essence of this story is fabulous. Nice job :-D

Ok! I think you captured Anne really well here. I can tell that she's very confident and thinks very highly of herself. The fact that she repeatedly declares thinks like "Anne, Queen of England," really shows the reader that sense of herself. You never directly state, "Anne is confident," or "I think highly of myself;" instead, you show this through your characters dialouge about her husband and his mistress.

You do have some grammar errors; there are places where commas should be, and your tense keeps switching between past and present. Additionally, I don't think I'd have so many paragraphs; some of them can be combined.

Grammar mistakes aside, you do a great job of showing her anger. I can really sense her frustration, and I even started feeling frustrated myself. I also like what you've shown but not said; Anne is acting all confident, but it feels like she's trying to reassure herself that it won't last. (And as we know, it DOES last, or at least long enough for Anne to lose her head.)

Nice work, mon amie. I enjoyed this insightful character study.
