by the way Marie A's hair was blonde...
i'm not just saying that because i saw the movie... i'm acually learning about the French Revolution in my school right now...
-a new fan-
Author's Response: Thanks for the info, but I have to tell you: I don't care what colour Marie-Antoinette's hair/eyes/skin were. Marie-Antoinette de Syrnac is an original character with her own characteristics, even though her life is oddly similar to the Queen's. I didn't see the movie, and I learnt about the French revolution quite a long time ago :)
omg this is a GREAT story.. i no i've probably said this before but i'm serious!!
i love the lil french tid pits you put in there..
i love the characters and i LOVE all the history and your hp story conect...
like Marie-Antoinette is betrolled quite suddenly and put into a new house and the "lesser" people are starving and her husband is just not interested... but i love your twist on it...
VERY good... honestly...
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. The comparision with Marie-Antoinette d'Autriche doesn't go this far, actually... Their lives are rather similar in some ways but not completely alike.
Aww, i found the answer to my own question... One can hope though...
Author's Response: Don't abandon hope, I may be able to write during the Christmas break!
Please update soon!!! I love your stories and I enjoyed this one in particular!
Author's Response: I'll try to... see profile...
But I'm glad you like my stories :)

Author's Response: Thanks :) -a not-so-new author-
Congratulations (again - see Symphony)on the Quicksilver Awards! This is an absolutely wonderful fic, top notch. Well done!
Author's Response: Thanks a lot!
Hey, I suddenly dicovered that Marie-A is unfinished ! No, no, no, no ! Please update .
Author's Response: I certainly won't abandon it, but I'm lacking time right now to update...
I can't even resent Marie-A for taking Lily's place. Great fic!
Author's Response: That's a good sign, otherwise it would've meant I wasn't doing my job properly. Thank you!
Hats off to Marie-Antoinette - and her creator!
Author's Response: Thanks :D
This is one of the best fanfics I've read. I'm reading up all the QQ award-winners one by one. I agree, Marie Antoinette is a real winner!
Author's Response: Thank you, I was very pleasantly surprised to see it in the runners-up! :D
James and Sirius??!! This fanfic is totally engrossing!
Author's Response: Thanks, I hope you enjoy the rest of it!
I am tickled pink, not least by "Sorbet Citron" ! (Sorry, colour mismatch). This is an absolutely, delightfully daring story! But one little quibble - wasn't Marie-Antoinette's hair red?
P.S. Which James is this? Not Lily's James? Non, non, non!!!
Author's Response: Thank you for the nice little review. I don't know whether Marie-Antoinette's hair was red or not, but it doesn't matter, since it's not the same Marie-Antoinette we're talking about in this story...
As for your PS... well, you can do the math... in 1983, Harry's three years old...
Hmmm... Wow. I must say, this looks to be excellent. Very, very intriguing. Good work here! I loved the beginning where you described Marie in her last hour of respect and her first as a true Queen. Brava!
Author's Response: Thank you! And I liked drawing this parallel between my OC and Queen Marie-Antoinette. She's so often thought to be frivolous and cruel, and most people forget what she went through.
Please write again, soon! The story is intriguing, even if I cannot quite condone the breakup of Lilly and James, and what is the point of deleriously happy Surius?
Author's Response: I won't be able to write again soon, unfortunately--see profile for more information. I don't understand your review--Lily and James didn't divorce of their own free will, so why would you "condone" their breakup? And "deleriously happy" isn't exactly how I would describe Sirius--he was his charming self with Marie-Antoinette, but if you read correctly the passage in his PoV at the beginning of the chapter, he's far from being happy at all.
Thanks for the review.
Oh, and one more thing, (sorry to review twice, but it has to be said) you are going on my favorites list! Plus, I like how you are focusing more on your own character, instead of the marauders or the main characters from HP. Good job, I'm telling my friends about this!
Author's Response: Thanks! :D
Haha, thats funny, sherbert lemon, now, for some real reviews.
Just the first paragraph of this story proves that you have a dramatic romantic way of writing. I'm seriously enjoying this story so far. I was a little confused for a while, thinking that maybe this was set after Dumbledore's death. I figured that Marie would have to marry Ron or Draco. Once again, you are a fantastic writer, keep it up. Oh, and one more thing, I think it's beautiful that you're using Marie-Antoinette as the inspiration plot of this story. I've read a lot about her, and I"m very impressed with how you're moving the story along.
James, wow, won't he be upset?! 10/10
Author's Response: Thanks for the review; I hope I'm not overdramatic in my way of writing, I know I need to be careful with that. You're not the first one who seems to be confused about the time frame of the story--yet I did specify the exact date. The summary gives the era in which the story takes place, too, but maybe you didn't find the story by browsing through the summaries...
Again, thank you for the nice comments :). I'm glad you don't mind that the story is OC-centered. As for Queen Marie-Antoinette, I use her for a constant comparison between her and my OC's life. Otherwise, their personalities were really different, I believe.And yes, James will be... really upset!!
Author's Response: See answer below... Please be patient with me, I swear I'm trying.
PLEASE, when are you going to update? I'm just dying here...
Author's Response: I'm sorry, I don't have much time right now--I don't have time at all, to be honest. I won't update any of my fics before quite a long time. Thanks for being patient with me!
You write so beautifully. This is by far the best "Voldemort wins" fic I've read. Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Thank you! :)
