Just found your story - and had to read all the chapters at once... I enjoy your style of writing. /pen

Beautiful, beautiful story! I'm so glad I stumbled across it! I'd say please update soon, but I'm sure that everyone has been begging you to do that! :P

Such a delightful story. Can't wait for update!
Ultrahotpink chapter 12 . 6/13/2012
Sorry it's taken me so long to review! I'm so glad that it's back! Edith is so in character! I love that Mary was the one to slip up and reveal that it was Matthew. And the passion between Matthew and Mary! I think one of the main consequences thus far is that they can't keep their hands off of one another! They're so foolish to resist! Lovely chapter as always ladies! Can't wait for the next one!

Loved the story. You want to strangle edith. She is always so nasty. It now leads to the question...what is she going to do with this information... who will she tell... dare i say a mr. Richard carlise?

Love the fact that mary & matthew just can't keep away from each other. They try...but are just not able to. Everyone seems to know what is going on but them. Can't wait for the next chapters.

As individual writers you are both very good. But... putting both of you into one storyline you become Amazing storytellers! You have created the WOW factor! You have become both individually and together one of my favourite fanfic authors ... keep those stories coming.
TheSingingGirl chapter 12 . 6/8/2012
Blimey. You're right - the amount of stupidity in this story is amazing. In fact, there was only one bit of cleverness and that was one I was surprised didn't come out in the show - Mary telling Edith that her scandal would ruin her sisters as well. I know that by the time it all came out in the show it was rather too late to tell Edith that, but it would have been a brilliant retort for Mary to make at some point or another.


Favourite bit of the chapter: the very beginning. Religion is such an interesting factor which is just completely not addressed in the show. And Mary's guilt about going into the church... For ages once I realised I was bisexual, I felt really awkward going into a church. I went to a Roman Catholic wedding, and I felt like I was just waiting for someone to point me out as someone who didn't belong. Obviously, that's not the same as what Mary feels, but it was similar enough to strike a chord.

I'm hopeful that now we're into part two, we'll have more of a plot going on? Sorry, that sounds mean, but I know a little bit about how you've been writing CotC, and I don't think it's too unfair to say that you didn't start out with a plotline! Sorry, I'm still not sounding particularly nice, but... oh, you know what I mean. As Mary notes early on in the chapter, she's had no repercussions yet. Given that the story is entitled Consequences...

Right. This has been a bad review, and I shall end it there. Sorry about that.

I love this story. I specially like how some of Mary and Matthew misunderstandings could be cleared up with a bit of communication, but every time they try it never goes acoording to plan! I always laugh so hard! Just love it! Hope to read more soon!
Katie500 chapter 12 . 6/7/2012
Loved this chapter, especially the ending! I can't wait for the next update
virtualclutter chapter 12 . 6/7/2012
So glad you've started updating this again! Have nothing more coherent to say apart from this I'm afraid, but I'm already looking forward to the next update, whenever it might appear.
7gifts chapter 12 . 6/7/2012
Definitely enjoyed reading this. Gosh those two and denial and sometimes unnecessary propriety! Why can't they just tell each other how they feel and forgo all this awkwardness and angst?

Edith is so mean, taking so much glee from Mary's inappropriate situation.

Another thing I liked was the characterisations in this chapter. I felt that Mary, Matthew and Edith were in character. Edith would relish lording Mary's inappropriate situation over her in canon, Mary would be her typical cold self that Matthew wouldn't be able to read whether he's in or out. However, with the way you've written the final part of this chapter, I can't see them keeping their hands to each other for much longer. The separation or barrier afforded them by their return to their respective houses has been broken.

Looking forward to the next chapter and kudos!
Pemonynen chapter 12 . 6/7/2012
I always forget how malicious Edith was in s1, and again, she seems far more knowing here, and not just because she knows but referring to it as "whoring" definitely implies a deeper knowledge and understanding than she'd be willing to let on. I'm also sensing some jealousy from Edith. Perhaps she has deeper feelings for Matthew, perhaps she's jealous because Mary has had these experiences... Hmmm...

Onto the idiots. I love them, I do, but they are. For some reason when I was reading the conversation outside the post office, all I had in my head was the bit in Friends where Rachel is telling Phoebe that Monica and Chandler are together and she says "doing it, doing it, phone doing it". (Yes, I am aware that I am silly.) ANYWAY. I ADORE the awkwardness between them. Mary explaining why she was at the post office...yes dear, why else would you be there? :P

It's interesting that she's adamant that she's not pregnant, when it's only been, what, a week? Matthew's right: how would she know so soon? Also, he really should know something! [Insert gif know which one.] Well I don't think she would know, so I'm keeping that on my list of speculations (:P). Also LOVE the awkward accidental grope. Ooops. :D Aaahh they're such awkward teenagers. I love it. Curious to see how the dinner will go... :D
GhostIsland chapter 12 . 6/7/2012
YES. :D I LOVE the idea of them in basically a "secret relationship." To be able to resist one another knowing any whiff of their closeness will *force* them to formalize it...AHH! :D Mary's convo with Edith was wonderful - I adored the idea that Edith *knew*, but didn't know (and Mary told her! Sloppy - but understandable - Mary!) And M/M's wonderfully awkward interaction walking home and in Crawley House was fantastic (aww, what Matthew had been fearing - and his adorably flustered reaction, hee!) And the makeout scene was HOT - again, it's like they just can't resist. And the thrill of almost being caught (Matthew heard the door, but made no move to stop) perhaps only heightens the excitement? Can't wait to find out! :D You two sure can tell a great story. :) PLEASE update soon! :D
eridani chapter 12 . 6/7/2012
I suppose I've never really thought of Mary as being particularly pious or God-fearing, but maybe that's just my own biases showing through... Nevertheless it was an interesting choice, interpretting Mary that way. And I can totally see Edith making use of whatever moral high ground she thinks she can claim. Great to see this update ladies!
darkblueyank chapter 12 . 6/7/2012
Thank you for updating. I was beginning to worry that you had gotten bored with this whole plot and story.

Love Isobel and her timing.
