Well, holy shit! I never expected the Xinzhe/Mingli pairing, though why do I imagine them as Dan and Phil? Btw, I absolutely love your story.

Yay! A new chapter! Hmm I did have a sneaking suspicion that the Fengs were really just victims to some bigger scheme - it'll be interesting to see how Lan Fan and Ling will act on this revelation. And awww Caterina sounds like a really nice girl who really doesnt deserve someone like Dong Mao. Your descriptions always grips me with its vivid imagery - I can practically see a movie playing out in my head reading your scenes. Also, your detail to describing your costumes is excellent as well - I'm curious, are you going to post up links to photos for the historical costumes you keep mentioning? Cause I'd though that would be something interesting to see.
Anyways, thank you for sharing your amazing talent and I look forward to the next chapter!

A stellar chapter, Shu. I adore this story for delving into the characters I already love and immersing me in their world, introducing intriguing and nuanced original characters, and shaking them all up in a complex, deadly plot.

Lan Fan's archery demonstration was delightful! And her interludes with Ling make me tingly. :)

You've set me up to accept Lien Hua's confession to Lan Fan as truth, and I am relieved along with Lan Fan to analyze the political machinations in a new light. I'm not ready to wholly throw myself in with the Fengs, but I am glad they aren't cardboard villains. And I can believe that Huian Yao is that much of a bitch (I'm sure there's more to the Dowager Empress as well, but I am content in my hatred.;) ).

Right now I'm super curious about the connection between Xiaoqing and Huli, and engaged in the development of Caterina. And loving the friendship deepening between Suyin and Lan Fan.

What I love about this story and your writing is that they drown me in LingFan feels... uhhh *drowns*.

A couple of things though. I think you forgot to insert scene breaks in between several of these scenes, particularly from the hunting scene to Xiaoqing and then back to Lan Fan again. Also, I'm sure it might just be me, and this is not really that big of a deal, but the way you use italics for thoughts and for flashbacks can be confusing at times. It took me some time to realize that the next 3 lines after Ling says "As well as can be, considering" are actually from a memory and not Lan Fan recovering her thoughts after having her breath knocked out. Ooor perhaps I'm just due for a re-read. Yeah, prob that too.

Anyway, I'm so happy you're back! I think it's safe to say that every LingFan shipper lives off of this story. It's like the major source of fuel for the LingFan ship.
HELLO IT'S ME chapter 22 . 12/14/2015
Ohmygosh, you don't know how happy I am that you have updated! I knew you weren't on hiatus. Lol.

Anyways, LAN FAN AND LING. OMIGOSH THEY ARE TO DIE FOR. I mean, can they just cut the chase and kiss already? ('course I'm kidding, I'm loving your story). And can I just say, that scene where Lan Fan just owns that bitchy court girl, whoever that was, giiiiirl, LAN FAN WAS SLAYING. I love that scene and that part where Lan Fan was just genuinely enjoying and laughing as she fired those arrows, she was just having a good time and LING DFNJDFHBGHGB GOSH I CAN IMAGINE THAT SMALL EXCHANGE OF GLANCES AND THOSE SMILES. IDK I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. I SERIOUSLY DO NOT CARE FOR HOW LONG YOU WOULD UPDATE AGAIN. THIS IS JUST BEAUTIFUL. THANK YOU.

That's all.
P.S. Sorry, my LingFan feels were just all over the place and I am just super happy you updated :)
