The feel of the period is, I think, rather cleverly captured. Also the difficult-to-believe transition of Marianne as lover of Willoughby to Marianne as lover of Brandon is done as well as could be expected . I don't know if JA herself even really believed in it.

I think the attempt at the language of the period is less well done (pounding hearts and breasts, low gutteral voices and so forth) and the way in which Marianne is portrayed as wordily flirtatious over the name issue . Marianne is changed certainly, but not , I think, into this rather insipid type.

Well done with Brandon to my mind, not so good with Marianne .

I loved it! Being such a fan of the book and of the 1995 version with Alan Rickman and Kate Winslet, I often wondered what happened between the poetry reading and the wedding and even Miss Austen herself said that Marianne " voluntarily gave her hand to another" which of course is Colonel Brandon. You captured the very essence of Miss Austen- you are truly gifted. Please continue and I will continue being an avid reader .

Thanks so much for the pleasure of your writing.

This was beautiful..and was made all the more so in that you kept to Jane Austin's style and wonderful use of words. One of the best Marianne and Brandon one shots I have read.

This is a really good story. Will you write more stories about Colonel Brandon and Marianne? I love C.B. Do you like Alan Rickman by any chance? Did you know he has played Colonel Brandon and Snape?
