Reviews For Marie-Antoinette

Chapter: Chapter One: Adieux and exile

I've been meaning to read and review this since I got the email saying it was updated, but unfortunately I am just now finding the time. I also figured I could do you the favor of giving at least one semi-coherent review, so here I am.

I already loved this fic because of it's lovely prologue, but after reading this first chapter, I can assure you that my love of it has only increased. I just think it's such a wonderful and refreshing idea. It's AU, but not AU in that cliche kind of way, where everybody's OOC and random things happen. No, you've managed to dive into the AU world and create something that is unique and makes sense.

One thing that really stood out to me was the way you've made Beauxbatons so real. I hadn't really given much thought to this other magical school before, but it's obvious that you have. You did a very nice job; you kept it original, but at the same time didn't make it too different. I felt really sad for Olivier; it was obvious he liked Marie-Antoinette as more than just a one-time girlfriend, and for him to have all the sudden break up with her because she's getting married...poor guy. But it was a good bit in the story.

The end! The end was so good. When she walked into that room and noticed the two men, I immediately wondered if they were James and Sirius. My only question is, why is Sirius there? Because he's also a pureblood? I just wondered why Remus and Peter weren't also there. Surely he'd want them there too? But it's just a minor thing. I can't wait to see more of Marie-Antoinette and James's first encounter!

Lovely job, really. I love it. Good luck with the next chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks for a more-than-semi-coherent review!! =D

For once, I'm so happy you loved the fic despite the fact it's AU. I always try to keep the charcaters IC, so no worries there. Just bear in mind that they're all seen through Marie-Antoinette's eyes, and also that some of them have suffered quite a lot in the war, which may have impaired their personality; and then you should be okay with the way I write JKR's characters.

Thanks for your comment about Beauxbâtons! I had wondered if someone would point that out to me. Yes, I did think a great deal about it, and I couldn't help seeing it as a big classical castle such as le château de Versailles... With high windows and great classical paintings. I was afraid the bit with Olivier was too much sentimental, but it was necessary to point out the differences between her life before and after she's married. We'll see Olivier again in the future; I don't like producing characters out of the blue and making them disappear almost at once.

The reason for Sirius' presence is just because he wants to be with James; and the reason why Remus and Peter aren't there is precisely because they aren't pure-bloods. Lots of things have changed since Voldemort is in power!

Next chapter is finished and I'm about to send it to my wonderful Beta... See you very soon then! And again, thanks for the nice review!

The whole character development thing is what I meant in the first place... I'm sort of scary when it comes to spotting grammar/spelling mistakes... in fact, I average .5 typos per finished chappie. This is random, but which two keys are missing?

Oops. I accidentaly sent that in for the first chapter. My bad..

Author's Response: If that's just character development, then I might be of some use!... And the missing keys are $ and ù. Thank God, nothing too useful.

Chapter: Chapter One: Adieux and exile

I thought I reviewed for the prologue... Oh well... THIS STORY ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are now AUTOMATICALLY one of my favorite authors, as I also love symphony for quartet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (excuse me, I'm on a caffine high...) Can't wait to see James' reaction when he finds out who Marie is, he-he-MWAHHAHAHA... I think that you have really made the characters seem believable; Marie is awesome. She seems to be a really believable character, and I also can't wait to see how SHE will react to JAMES... this is gonna be GREAT... my apologies for any incoherency, caffine high and all that..

P.S.: Your Marauder-era fic was so great that I feel compared to beg you to beta mine...PLEASE??????????????? send me an email if your interested... siriusly, it was/is a work of genius... I swear, are you JK Rowling?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Author's Response: Scary, the effects of caffeine!... James' reaction to Marie-Antoinette and vice versa is visible in chapter2 -- which is currently being written -- as you would have guessed without my help since they are in the same room at the end of ch1 (*bangs her head against the wall for babbling uselessly*).

I'm happy you think the characters believable -- I'm working very hard on that.

As for the Beta thing... well I'd love to, but I'd be incapable of spotting subtle grammar mistakes and such. English not first language, see. All I can help with would be the characterization and the plot development. Would that be enough for you?

And no, I'm not JKR :) If I were, I would not be typing on a laptop where at least two keys are missing...

You are forgiven. I think.

*still bugging*

Will you add more to Marie-Antoinette if I become your personal valet for life?

*cherry added on top*

And mention your story in my fanfic (still working on it)?

*LOTS of sprinkels are added. Blue, for Marie-Antoinette*

PLEASE?

Author's Response: I'm working on chapter 2 right now. Satisfied? :) the idea of having a personal valet for life is really appealing... Can you massages?

Another review from me!

PLEASE WRITE MORE BECAUSE I'M GOING TO BUG YOU UNTIL YOU DO.

Pretty please?

With sugar on top?

*wonders if authors can take out restraining orders on eager fans*

Anyway, I really love this story. Marie-Antoinette is great. She isn't perfect, but she does try.

I can see you getting the restraining orders out. *sigh*

*is restrained*

Author's Response: I'M TRYING HONESTLY I AM BUT I'M CURRENTLY WRITING FOUR STORIES AT THE SAME TIME!

With sugar on top?... OK. Just add a cherry.

Great line: "Marie-Antoinette isn't perfect, but she does try." Wonderful line!

About the restraining thing... You know, I'm crazy too. :)

Firstly like to say that I absolutely lvoe The Three Musketeers, and now I want to read the other two...lol...though I might try and find the english versions. I don't speak enough french anymore to understand it...which is sad...considering I'm in French Immersion...right now...haha.

Very loverly chapter though. Once again I truely love the originality of this fic!

Keep On Writing;)

Author's Response: I absolutely love the Three Musketeers as well, actually I couldn't get my nose out of those books (but that was before I discovered Harry Potter). The other two are titled 'Twenty Years Later' and 'Vicomte de Bragelonne'. They are older, and D'Artagnan is sooo funny in them...

Anyway, I'm going off-topic ;) Thanks for the review!

I like this story, it's different. The whole James marrying someone else and Voldy winning the war makes me cringe though. I like this story though! Can't wait to find out what happens!

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked the story, but I'm a little worried those things you mentioned make you cringe, as they're absolutely central to the story...
