Hi I just wanted to say that I love all your stories, you are an amazing writer!

This was a great insight into the Matthew/Isobel relationship and how this conversation might have gone. Matthew's character was very believable and I think you captured his desire to do his part very well. I also liked how you emphasised that every decision he makes does not necessarily relate back to Mary and his feelings for her. :)

Very well done. I could see Matthew here: "He raised his eyes to her, sporting a fiercely determined expression."

And I could hear his mother here: "I do understand that, Matthew. And I think you've dealt with everything so admirably. But are you sure that this is the best course of action? Is there not another way?"

You've captured Matthew's character yet again.

I really liked this. Matthew and Isobel's relationship is a great one to explore and you portrayed this poignant moment very convincingly. I really liked how true Matthew was to his episode 7 portrayal. It's a good point that his frustration isn't just related to Mary.

Aww! What I love about this story is it really is a microcosm of Matthew's character: pride, stubborness and the desire to do good. :) As a result, I find it so believable, but so very sad. I don't know why...there's a very "last resort" feel to it (the passage about "husbands and fathers" was just...sigh) What I like most about it is it feels like an attempt for Matthew to regain some control over his life, and I find that very true to character. :D Once again, I hope the show follows your lead, and addresses these issues as well as you have! :) Thanks so much for posting - keep writing! :D

Wow! I wish I could write as superbly as this at 4 in the morning and in one sitting!

Your writing talent is immense and here you capture the characters, and what they would go through, so masterfully. You really have their voices and expressions down perfectly.

Wondefully written and I hope you write a lot more!

This was simply beautiful and I'm so glad you wrote it. I'm really in awe of your ability to write such a tender and honest scene, especially in just one sitting. Both their voices resonate so believably here. Just lovely.
