|Reviews for Rodger and Eleanor|
| LadyKate1 chapter 37 . 3/4
Finally getting around to reviewing this chapter! Wow, lots of development here. You did a great job writing action with the scenes of the fire and the firefighting - I could see it happen! Really like the way you wrapped up the storyline with Peter and Rowan, especially Guy's gruff response to Rowan's thanks. It's very much in character. Also loved Allan's lines about Guy's heroics; I could really hear the characters' voices here!
And yay, the kiss and the marriage proposal! Looking forward to the next chapter but kind of sorry this story is over! Can we induce you to write more? ;-)

I'm so grateful to have found your story! I have read the previous stories leading up to this one and couldn't put it down.
I never did like Gisbourne - but your writing has allowed me to. Thank you! Sad this is coming to and end but thankful I have been able to enjoy the ride.

Such a wonderful chapter! Seriously, loved Guy's bravery - am so proud of him ;P
And the end was great as well. Can't wait for the next chapter, though it's a shame it'll be the last one :\
Loved it and thank you for writing this!

OMG! ManxMom, you really, really NAILED it with this chapter! It's a wonderful piece of work, with a very believable hazard to be faced and characters facing that hazard exactly the way one would expect (and want) them to. It was a wonderful way to take care of the Rowan/Peter story element, perhaps the only way to do it without killing someone or just having that whole family move away, and this was much more satisfactory. I really enjoyed reading it, as I have the whole story; this chapter made me feel good, and I definitely needed that. I don't want the story to end, because I'll miss it - but I can't wait to read the conclusion! Talk about being torn in half ...

This is a brilliant piece of writing- not only is it well written, it has a plot that draws you in, and characters that remain true to the source and yet are further crafted and improved upon and ultimately one as the reader cannot but help become completely emotionally invested in this fanfiction :) thank you for sharing this story.
And I like Guy's better side too :D
| MargaretThornton chapter 37 . 1/23
Yeah, let me be your 200th rewiever ! And yeah, I am so glad about your update and also about being able to encourage you. By the end of chapter 36, when the the fire-alarm rang
( I mean Alan ), I had sneaking suspicion of what was going to happen ( Guy rescuing Rowan or Peter ), but I also had a little fear something drastic would happen either ( Guy being seriously harmed by rescuing Rowan or Peter ). Then by reading chapter 37 there was a little moment, when Meg went for her fathers house, that made me scared (would something awful happen to her ), but nothing of my fears came true, Guy and Rodger proved themselves as, yes fireman by heart and Rodger finally got Eleanor !
They will be a real strong and beautiful couple and as a Guy/ Marian shipper I am happy to imagine Guy and Marian will share grandchildren. For one little moment I thought Rodger and Eleanor could name their first on Guy ( I know they are not yet properly engaged ), but then the idea strucked me this name may be a too heavy burden for anyone, because there will be people remenbering the old Guy, Vaiseys henchmann, for at least one more generation.
As I mentioned earlier, this is a very important aspect of "Closer Than A Brother" and this story, even if Guy turns into a better man, there will always be the damage he has done and the suffering he caused in his former life. You worked this out very clearly and be-
lievable. All of your three stories in this fandom are stories to be proud of. You did such a great work with them and I am absolutely sure, there are many people out here having real fun and pleasure by reading them, including me.
Let me add one last thing, as another rewiever already mentioned, you did a very great job by includding the fire from Guys and Robins childhood - this was very well done.
Now I will sit down patiently and do some embroidery while waiting for your last chapter.

As someone who is currently writing 'Guy's better side', I'm very happy to read of Guy's heroism here. And I love the way you wrote in the flashback to his childhood and the fire that consumed his parents. Great ending too!
| Witty Sayings chapter 37 . 1/22
That was adorable! I loved Guy's better side as well... :)
| Ghanaperu chapter 37 . 1/22
Sorry, it won't let me log in. *rolls eyes
This is a great chapter! I really think that this is exactly how it would have played out, with both father and son rushing into danger to save even their enemy. I really liked the way you had Guy flashback to when his own parents were killed and Robin's cries then - so sad.
And finally! Eleanor and Rodger! They're just so sweet together. :)
Overall, great chapter. Thanks for the update!

After reading "A friend closer than a brother" I started with this one. And I must tell you, this story is simply amazing and wonderful ! Ive got a few chapters ahead but I couldnt wait to tell you this. I am not just reading about the characters, your writing style makes me feel what they feel. Guy and Meg are so cute and adorable with each other, you did a great job with them. You also did a great job with the whole story and I am absolutely grateful to you for sharing this with us !

Sorry it took me so long to post this - having a bad few weeks over here. But this was one of the really bright lights! You've done such a great job with this project, and this chapter definitely kept up to pace. With a cliffhanger ending, no less. All the views of Eleanor and Rodger growing up were wonderful, and I could see and hear the parents as if I was watching them on screen, their development has stayed so believable and true to their original portrayal. I'm really looking forward to the next chapter.

Grrrrr... I kept thinking "and now they will kiss" but each time you took it from me! You are indeed cruel, darling, but I cannot wait to read the next chappie! Get it up quickly for me!
| jadey36 chapter 36 . 12/14/2013
Sweet and lovely chapter, Manx. My excitement was mounting as I was reading towards the marriage proposal and then, bam!, Allan's cry of fire, arrghh! Poor Rodger. Life just isn't fair sometimes.
