I truly enjoyed reading this story. The author seem to grasp the characters of both Fanny and Henry Crawford. I always have such high hopes for Mr. Crawford and am always disappointed when he runs off with Maria.
This story has a wonderful moment of illumination for Henry, similar to Gabriel's in Joyce's "The Dead."

This was so sweet! Is she pregnant?

I love Fanny/Henry. This just made me happy because it showed how Henry changed and changed because of Fanny. It's nice that you let Edmund and Mary be happy too, though they will never know the love of Henry and Fanny. Good on you for still letting Maria be the slut she is. Good story, wish the original ended as happily.

It's good that Henry realises his past mistakes. It's really sweet that he is so in love with her

aww I love this. Always was disappointed in Edmund getting together with Fanny, after Mr Darcy, I did think Austen would continue her trail in bad boys reformed.:D At least your fic sates some of the disappointment heh.:)

Loved this! I always found Henry more interesting than Edmund, so this sort of ending was great to read and you wrote the characters well :-)

Love it! Well-written and fantastic characterisation:) I think this is how Henry would be if he can truly reformed his rakish ways. I am hang up on this shipping now and I think your one-shot is the best that I had encountered.

Excellent story! I actually really like Henry/Fanny together and I like the way you wrote this, it seems in character.

Lovely, beautiful, utterly exquisite. The genuine love you show between these two is fantastic. Great work.

I have just finished reading Mansfield Park and I feel you have captured the tone and the characters well. I truly enjoyed this alternate ending. It matches up to my own thoughts on what-could-have-been exactly.

Ahh! Just found this, this was so wonderful, great, totally awesome. I wish these two would have really ended up together, the cousin thing is just weird. Nice job, Ciao :)

I think you take Henry on an interesting journey in this - from triumph and possession (but it's so wonderful that someone appreciates that Fanny is a prize!) to tenderness (you describe his coddling of Fanny beautifully, her blooming, his wanting to be with her) to doubt to Fanny's steadfastness and love for Henry. Probably more precious to him because Henry now knows it wasn't always a (anachronism alert) slam dunk. Which is one of canon-Henry's less appealing qualities - his total assurance that he'll get what he wants - and so that hour of doubt makes him a more lovable and worthy man.
You know ... it's perfect as is, but I'd surely love another chapter some day :)

I sincerely appreciate the fact that this sticks to their personalites and habits so well - their characters and manners, the signifigcant objects (such as Lady Betram's pug that she endears more than her own children)... etc
The ending is sweet, she loves him and he is aware (not throughly, but at least has a concept) of what she felt for Edmund or perhaps still feels. so far the best Henry/Fanny I've read :)

Just lovely...the language, the emotional complexity of Henry Crawford after being confronted with Mansfield Park again...it was all so perfect. It was so tender and sweet. I only wish that there was more.

One of my favourite pairings. This was lovely.
