I loved this!
I've always wondered what could have happened with Helena and the diadem. I love this take on it! Well done!
Wow...that was intense at the end!
There was a lot of backstory, though, it might have been better to start when she steals the diadem or shortly before. It was still really good, don't get me wrong! You're a great writer.
This is almost exactly how I imagined it. Excellent!
