Dear Lord, woman! This was absolutely amazing! I knew that you would turn out something wonderful for this challenge, but this is beyond words. That's how good it is, truly. Your command of the language, your word usage, everything! It was all so lovely and it has me staring at this piece in awe.

I'm usually one that prefers a long read (in addition to writing them), but this was as long as it needed to be, I feel.

I adore that you didn't use their names, but I still knew whom exactly you were talking about. Especially in the end when I saw her name, my suspicions were confirmed correctly.

I loved the poetic-ism of this piece. The images you conjured were beautiful and lifelike. I absolutely adored this!

I think that you characterized them perfectly. Helena was always quite 'unreachable' in my opinion, and the Baron didn't understand her.

I also believe that the way you took the quote and turned it into something of your own was wonderful! It was amazing.

I especially liked the dagger and hilt comparison. It seemed to fit them quite well.

I love how Helena might actually like the Baron in this piece, but she plays coy. That's how many of girls in her time acted (as do I), and I do think that she would be hard to get.

The description in this is really great for a piece of such short length.

This was great!


Author's Response: Linders!

Haha, I actually wrote this at four in the morning in some semi-asleep state. I wasn't actually conscious of what I was writing, but I was desperate to get it in before the queue closed. (Had to claim a banner!)

I pretty much owe Miranda (FannyPrice) for the idea of using the Grey Lady; it was her suggestion - I just realized that it went along with the quote well. ^^

Helena...was definitely a weird character to write. Very strong and very stubborn (foolishly so), but to show that all in a more subtle way was a bit more than I'd bargained for. Either way, I'm just relieved to be done with it and that you liked it! :D

Thanks so much for reviewing, Linders! I really appreciate it! ^___^
