This was a really nice story! That last line was just beautiful, and I loved all those little twists and turns with the moments of seeming reality that turned out to be dreams...Also it was so sweet with Cora's genuine concern after Sarah had fainted.

Also, I shall just take this moment to say, i absolutly love your Tumblr!

Another chapter - yay! I liked the Thomas and Sarah interaction and of course they have mutual gayness in common ;) I love how Cora sets Sarah up to find the letter because she doesn't have the courage to say it herself. And yay, they kissed!

I loved this line "I don't want to turn back. I will make the most of loving you." and the final line "...she knew this couldn't be compared to her dreams and hopes. Because this was the reality."

Hehe I love how she has no idea in the beginning what the letter migt be about :) And how she couldn't believe it first! I simply love her reaction, it's very noble and also full of understanding for O'brien.

Lol. Dammit that exactly on this day the dowager and Lady Rosamund came for a visit :-D And how Rosamund spreads the gossip of London :D That was written very well! I had a lot of laughs!

And I really like the way you wove Rosamund's chatter into Cora's distracted thoughts... masterly :) Hahah and I can imagine that Rosamund's chatter get's boring and exhausting ;D

A beautiful part, how you wrote how Cora paid attention to the little details...:) You're such a precious writer:)4

And then - the ending... I was so scared! Lord Grantham's line - simply perfect! "Lady Cora felt like her heart stopped beating for a moment. She wanted to open her mouth to explain the unexplainable, when…

When she opened her eyes. There was nobody in the room, she was only surrounded by the darkness and silence. Cora breathed heavily and she looked at her hand. She was still holding the letter." Just perfect :) Well well done my dear:))

I like how Cora's thoughts have been taken up by Sarah now that she has read the letter. And how she keeps re-reading it, taking note of Sarah's handwriting. I'm enjoying this story and I can't wait to see where it's going.

I've always imagined that Sarah doesn't get sick very often too. I like how you've got her working right up until she faints, I can quite easily imagine her doing that. And Cora's willingness to help Sarah to bed and her concern for her seems natural and genuine, even before she makes her discovery.

I love Sarah's thoughts about her dream. I've often felt like that, desperately trying to relive it over and over in my mind before I forget it. I can see her wanting to write her thoughts and feelings down as she has no other way of being able to express them...but what makes me think the letter will be found?

A great new chapter! :)

I really loved the dialogue between her and Thomas :D that's totally what Thomas would say, I thought :D lol. You are great in watching and re-creating characters! "Good mornin'." "Why would it be good?" Lol :D That's them!

And the dialogue between Daisy and Anna was so nice :))

Poor Daisy :D To write a letter, what a very interesting idea... I am curious what will become of it :)

Very beautiful! you write so well:) xo

You are a wonderful writer! :) I love all the details you think about which make a great story even better. I like the dialogue, it seems very realistic.

I love the part when she isn't sure if it's the warmth or her feelings that made her almost faint :) How wonderfully written...

Love all the little romantic lines ;)

Ah, and what a wonderful twist that it came out to be a dream in the end! I didn't expect that - and it makes me somewhat like it even more, for all the angst :D Write another chapter, please, when you have ideas for it :))
Julie Ann Pope chapter 1 . 1/24/2012
Lovely piece, I like how it flowed and the tone of it. I also liked that it was a dream, but is that a hint of a second chapter at the end from Cora's point of view? :) DL xxx

Lovely! Very nice twist that it was only a dream... Please write another chapter :)
