|Reviews for Downton Abbey & Zombies|
| mh21 chapter 36 . 3/15
Wow, just wow. This is one of the best fanfictions I've ever read. I've been completely immersed reading this the past few days, I even had dreams of Downton Abbey overrun with zombies.
You're an amazing writer - the plot, pacing, action, suspense, romance, dialogue, and characterization are all spot-on. The characterization is especially well done, everyone seems true to character, three-dimensional, and realistic. I wouldn't be surprised if you're one of the actual writers of the tv show, just getting your kicks by posting these stories here.
I especially adore Sybil and Tom here, their romance is adorable. I really like that you've hinted at a possible Lavinia/Evelyn romance as well, they both deserve happiness and the pairing weirdly works perfectly. You're the first writer who has made me sympathize and understand Robert's character as well, since he usually annoys me on screen. He still annoys me, but I can empathize with him much better thanks to your perspective of him. All of your characters are wonderful though and I'm anxious to know what will happen next, especially after that cliffhanger with Matthew, Anna, and Richard.
I was on Facebook earlier and I saw the Downton Abbey fb page was doing a spotlight on Isis the dog - I was shocked she survived the apocalypse! You know a fanfiction is great when you mix it up with its canon source. :) The show would be so much more entertaining if they had really gone this route.
Okay I'll stop singing my praises before this review gets too long. I'm adding this to favorites and I recommended it to my friends as well. I can't wait for more, please update soon!

Just started reading this and it was quite a bit to get through but this is an awesome and amazing fic and I have ended up loving it far more than anticipated and I super eagerly look forward to your next update!

Ok, be prepared for a long review because I haven't reviewed for any of the other chapters, I just read it straight through. This is literally one of THE best fan fiction stories (and I seriously read a lot of fanfics) I have ever read, and believe me: I read a lot, there's crap writers and stories out there, I do not say that a lot. And Thomas Barrow (yes, he is a jerk in this, but I think you portrayed him pretty true to his character in this) is my all-time favorite character (what girl doesn't like the bad boys?) and in general I read more stuff for the servants than the Family, but this brought in every possible character from season two down, from Kieran, to Gwen, to Cora, to John Drake, to... Well you get the idea; and thank you, for giving me a chance to experience all of them in such a wonderful, heartbreaking, gutwrenching story. William, poor sweet selfless ( for him) William. At my religion class my teacher was talking about the two words "selfish" and "selfless" and she described both of them but especially the latter: I got chills right then and there in my classroom because she inadvertently described William Mason perfectly. And ever since the beginning of the story, when he first rescued Matthew when they were on that scouting mission, I had my guard up for his death. Then, and when Tom and him get separated, and when he and Thomas tie Kieran up, and when he says he'll go down first into the hospital...oddly, stupidly, when he actually did die was the only time I wasn't expecting it. And him and Daisy...short story: it made me cry. And Thomas' nervous breakdown when he and Matthew had to be zombies...half sad, half funny, because, as I said before, Thomas is just such a jerk. So now I have to get ready to go to my cousin's baby shower. But this is one of the best fan fics I have ever read, I think, and I've recommended it to at least one of my friends. And needless to say: UPDATE SOON. Thank you :)

Please just get Matthew to Mary already!
| Girl Genius chapter 6 . 2/19
Please dont let Tom leave... Or at the least make him and Sybil kiss first!
| Girl Genius chapter 5 . 2/19
I like this interdution between Sybil and Tom a lot more than the normal one! 3 3 3

In the third to the last paragraph you wrote,"···even that means into unknown danger?" I think you meant,"...even IF that means into unknown danger?"

Such a good chapter! So worth the wait! I can't wait, but at the same time I'm dreading what will happen when Sybil (and everyone else) finds out about Cora. I know that Tom is protecting her and promised Robert not to say anything, but obviously it's weighing on him. I hope Sybil understand why he kept it from her. Argh, angst!
Also that last scene! Aaaaaah! Obviously Richard was up to something, but I didn't think he'd threaten Matthew like that. So glad Anna was there, but that cliffhanger! You know what this means, of course. WE NEED MORE! ;p

HOLY CRAP! ANNA SHOT SIR RICHARD?! (Or did it hit Matthew?) I can't believe Sir Richard did that! And then Sybil and Tom flirting (YAY!) but then Tom saying that her mother was probably dead (BLOODY TELL HER WHERE HER MOM REALLY IS!) Such a good chapter can't wait til the next one!

Great cliffhanger and so glad you're back! Can't wait to read more about Cora, too! xx

AAAAAHHHH! I've waited all day to get to read this and it didn't disappoint! Oh my word! What a cliffhanger! AAAHHH! And I love Tom and Sybil in this story because oddly enough it is the closest to the show I've ever read. The way they are crossing the class divide, the way Sybil is standing up for herself, refusing to back down, insisting to learn how to shoot and fend for herself. And Tom, his anger and frustration at the whole situation, and the way he till dreams of a bright future. It's amazing how you have managed to so fully transplant them into this zombie apocalypse! GENIUS! And I swear you had me on the edge of my seat in this chapter because my mind was flashing to Rick and Shane in the field...EEEEEEE! This is so freaking good! THANK YOU FOR THE UPDATE! You are a queen! I can't wait for more! I NEED IT!

GOD DAMMIT, YOU CAN'T LEAVE ME HANGING LIKE THIS! ARGH!
Great chapter, as always, great to hear from you and finally get an update on this AMAZING story, and keep up the good work! :)

I've been looking forward to this update for so long! I hope you won't neglect this story so much again. I was looking forward to some Carson/ Hughes, but oh well, this was exciting anyway. The plot thickens.
I'm looking forward to the next update, which I hope won't take as long ;-)

Argh ROBERT! the only redeeming quality he has was that he backed up Tom with Mary.

Love the action with Tom!
