Coppercurls, you are amazing! This story is hauntingly beautiful. The concept, the atmosphere, the details, and the characters are truly magnificent. I usually offer an author some cc, but I can't find anything to critique in this story. I hope I don't sound like I'm gushing, but the quality of your writing surpasses that of most fan fiction authors, and I think you deserve a place on the 'featured' list for this story.
I have read most of the authors you mentioned in this story by the way... I'm pleased to see that my theory that 'those who read great works write great works' is born out in your case.
Thank you for one of my new favorites.
P.S. -- Loved the switch from Thistledown to Thistle. Cute and creative. One of my favorite parts in the story.
Author's Response: Thanks for your appreciation. I have been on a French history kick lately, and it is nice to know that its fruits have been well recieved. I'm glad you have read the classics; one thing western history has taught me is that they come in handy again and again. And as for Thistledown, he may look like he would blow away in a stiff breeze, but he is really all over in prickles (except for where his mistress is concerned of course). Thanks again!
C'est tres magnifique!
Author's Response: Merci beaucoup pour tes bien motes! I am glad you liked it and appreciate the review!
