This is exactly how I would expect to be the continuation of the story after the Matthew's first proposal! Excellent story telling

Oh, SO good! I could see this all playing out, and I liked Sybil's excitement at the end: it rang true for her character, as did Mary's response. Lovely writing! :)
| WhiteCamellia chapter 1 . 7/25/2013
Wonderful story! I hope you continue!

Oh, i just love this, the atmosphere, the feelings, the emotions sound just right. My interest is definitely picked up, and if you actually plan on writing more, I would definitely love to read it :)
Carry on darling, you're a great writer :)

Just lovely...exactly what should have happened.
| darkblueyank chapter 1 . 7/7/2013
What a perfect blend of fluff and smoochies and angst and sadness. Your story makes it sense of why Mary had such a hard time telling Matthew about Pamuk; she loved him too much to lose him or to lie to him. Poor Mary! What an emotional quandary.
I liked how you brought Sybil into the scene and showed her emotion as she learned of the proposal. That was one of those "missing moments" in the Downton canon.
I'm looking forward to your continuation of this fic.
| Lala Kate chapter 1 . 7/7/2013
It is a lovely opener...yes-opener! ;) I think this could become a most delightful story in your capable hands. Please do continue!

This is just wonderful! Seems exactly right for our M&M! I would adore it if you'd consider expanding your story to include their interactions going forward, up until that awful day when Mary returned from the London season and they argued about her wish to further delay a response. That's when it all went wrong... *deep, deep sigh*

Oh I just love this! Bashful, flirty Matthew and guilty but excited Mary are just darling. And the addition of Sybil at the end was fantastic! This fits right into the episode break and I adore it!
| OrangeShipper chapter 1 . 7/7/2013
Thank you SO much for writing this for me, and I love it I love it! I am having sudden renewed affection for S1 Matthew and Mary, and you've captured them perfectly here. Matthew's flirting and happiness, his hope is absolutely darling - oh bless him. And poor Mary... What a horrible, horrible situation she was in.
The wooing/court play, her noticing his hands, the feathery kisses and the absolute beat-down truth of the end... Gorgeous, gorgeous. Thank you! :)

Oh I do like that Orangeshipper and her idea that you have wonderfully brought to life! Not too much angst and I'm am the least angst-tolerant in the world. It is a brilliant start for a longer story! #toolazytologinproperly

Oh, this is lovely. We never got to see any of this time and it's fun to written- thank you!
| Ultrahotpink chapter 1 . 7/6/2013
This was lovely! I love S01 fics! Not sure if this is a one off or not, but I would totally love a Sybil's Ball chapter! :)

What a joy to find a new M/M fanfic! Plus it's so delicious. Thanks so much for posting this. Please make it only the start to a much longer story.
