Chapter: Sage

It's sweet, with just the right mixture of mystery and anxiety, joy and worry. I love the ending.

Hi, Bine!

This is a lovely, tragic story. I like the way you intertwine the letters with Susan's story. The only part I don't understand is the bit about sage. I sense there is a reference I'm missing. >.<

I don't know a lot about London or European history, but the whole story seems very realistic, and its obvious that a lot of research went into writing this. Kudos for that!

You do a good job throughout the story of spinning the mystery of the Collins family out gradually, and keeping the reader's interest. Very nice!

Author's Response: Just google "sage" or look it up in wikipedia; that's what I did when I wrote this story. In flower language, it means "I'll remember you", but sage also stands for healing as it's used in medicine etc. I thought it ties wonderfully into the story and gives the end a special note.

Anyway, thank you for such a lovely review. I'm glad you like it and that it sounds believable. :)

This was a very fascinating read. Thank you for writing it! I loved how you pieced together the story; it really read as a mystery. I was curious from the start and just got sucked into the rest of the story. You were able to pack in a lot of material into a single one-shot, which was very impressive.

Makes me wonder though: I wonder what other kinds of secrets are contained in the Healer's diary?

Author's Response: Thank you. I loved writing it. The more I'm glad you liked it. And who knows? Maybe my muse will think of something, one day. ;)

I liked this. And yes, if you're curious, your ethmology is accurate. You tied in the history well, although I only know that through literature courses. Thought you drew inspiaration from a King Arthur tale, myself.

Author's Response: Haha, Stargate has quite some references to King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. I love the historical references the series offer while still being original and sci-fi about it. But good to know that they got the etymology right. :)

Anyway, thank you for reading and reviewing. I'm glad you liked it.
