Elennare chapter 8 . 4/22/2012
I love this story, and I can’t wait for the next update! I always wanted the Swallows and Amazons to meet the Coots.

You’ve done a great job at aging everyone up but still keeping them nicely in character – Nancy still refusing to wear best frocks or be called Ruth, she and John both denying there’s anything between them, Titty and Dot as close as ever, Susan and Peggy getting everyone packed on time… All the little things that make them who they are.

The part in the second chapter with Susan, Peggy, Titty and Dot pretty much “shipping” John/Nancy (and Susan, Peggy and Dot shipping Dick/Titty) was really amusing. Nice to see we have the same ships ;)

I’m curious about where Bridget is, is she with her parents? She always seems to wind up a bit left out… though if they’ve taken her abroad, I bet she’s having an adventure of her own!

I like how you mention the war every now and then; it’s subtle enough that it doesn’t throw the reader out of the story, but frequent enough to keep the fact that this may be the last such carefree holiday they have fresh in our minds. (By the way, what year is the story set in? My attempt at a timeline had Nancy being 17 in 1934/35, but this seems later – of course, Ransome himself wasn’t entirely consistent with dates and ages!)

"I haven't seen you in a skirt before. I didn't even realise you possessed a skirt.” That line really made me laugh! And overprotective John is brilliant.

“Susan and Peggy were getting organised for changing trains. A little early perhaps, but there were quite a few of them, and they anticipated that the others would be useful.” Was that maybe meant to be ‘would be useless’, or ‘wouldn’t be useful’?

I like Mrs Maybrook :) Though having been in situations where people thought a friend and I were dating, I can sympathise with Nancy and John!

I spotted a few typos and grammar mistakes while I was reading, but nothing major. I can PM them to you if you like, though I know it’s a pain correcting anything here on ! I’m available to beta if you want one – anything for Swallows and Amazons fanfic :)

Once again, great story! I’m looking forward to the next chapter.
