Oh, what an original, novel point of view. Totally refreshing after so many cookie-cutter founder fics. I'm not sure they had tobacco in England circa 1000, wasn't that discovered in the New World around 1492?

I especially love the way you used the language of those times and worked it into a form we could understand today. The whole thing made me feel I was present during this story. The texture of the dialogue was outstanding. Oh, so wonderfully done. I am impressed...truly! How you implied so many 'back stories' without actually fleshing them out was masterful. It's almost like there were six stories we were almost told here in a one-shot! I, personally, would LOVE to read more of them! Wonderful, marvelous job, Prop! But, then, I've known from your first effort you were this good.

Author's Response: Wull, get a red crayon and color me embarrassed! I had no IDEA that tobacco originated in the New World. Sheesh, I guess that's another bit of nastiness we Americans have brought to the world, along with nukes and MTV. ;-) I was especially tickled that you liked the language/mood I tried to create, which was a bit of a challenge for a modern-day US farm country gal. I also liked your comment about the backstory issue; I think too many people get caught up on providing too many details when just a few hints are often enough (I think I learned that from timeturner). It's a useful skill too cuz you can get lazy and not write so much! I'm glad you liked it, Wic, your words mean a lot to me!!
