I bet it was Sybil White

That was a brilliantly enjoyable story (I'm not sure those two adjectives go together, but whatever...)! Your writing is impeccable, and I was convinced throughout the story that Lady Mary did it...
Of course, I must confess that my most pressing concern was whether Sybil and Edwin would end up together (I must confess myself something of a romantic.) Then it occurred to me. Sybil White. Snow White. Of course she was going to get a prince.
Although, come to think of it, Cindy seemed to get her prince too, and look how that turned out. That was a rather chilling twist on the traditional fairytale. Fond as I am of this story, it was a might unsettling. In a good way, of course.

WOW! I had a knot twisting and writhing in my stomach while reading this. I couldn't stop! :) You write so well, so thank you for all of your amazingly brilliant stories!

Hey I really like this story and our writing style, as well as your characters, particularly Sibyl :) But i just had a thought not long ago about the arsenic : In Madame Bovary, when Emma poisons herself with arsenic, her death is anything but painless and she screams for hours before eventually dying, and her body is affected by the poison. But in your story Cindy's body has no marks and no one heard her die, even though she died from arsenic. I'm not sure if that's part of the intrigue or not but i thought i might point it out in case :) it's a really great story though :P

This was a fantastic little story, Elfine. I'm usually not inclined to read mysteries, but I have to say, this one was quite good. I particularly liked the character of Sybil, and I thought she was an interesting reinvention of Snow White. And, now I'm intrigued enough by your story to read some Agatha Christie. I don't know if that was ever your intention, to inspire your readers to read Christie, but well... it happened.
I also want to thank you for writing to the author of that article on fanfiction. It's true: a lot of people just write themselves into the stories or write their favorite characters doing explicit sexual acts (hmm, doesn't sound anything like Fifty Shades of Grey, does it?), but fanfiction as a whole tends to get a bad rap when, as you say, there are some very creative, talented writers who also devote their time to writing fanfiction. So thank you for setting the record straight.
I will definitely check out your next story, and thank you for your contribution to the Fairy Tale fandom.

You characters and scenery just leap off the screen. Your descriptions were so fantastic that it was like a movie was playing in my head as I was reading through the chapters. It really reminded me of a Miss Marple mystery; she happens to be one of my absolute favorites. Just like in Miss Marple, I was completely wrong on who it was. I honestly almost forgot that Isabel was there. I was hooked on your story from the summery, and I actually had a hard time getting off and starting my various assigned homeworks. I loved it. -Peace be with you- Akora

No! It can't be over! Aww man!
But loved that ending. Very unexpected and made it all sum up nicely!
Plus I loved it especially Sibyl being a novelist, and she's writing it. :)
