How could you consider this a fail? Honestly, I think you are too hard on yourself. This is gorgeous, and I don't care if you think otherwise, it is. :P

I absolutely adore this.

I feel that both Helena and the Baron were in character. If I had anything to nitpick, it would be his name. I don't know, when reading it, it seemed oddly out of place. Like it was too modern or something.

However, that's the only thing I can really criticize.

I absolute adore the description and characterizations (like I mentioned before). The pacing and flow were also very nice.

I must admit my favorite part is where Helena shouts at him that she'll never be his for that seems very in character with her haughty and proud character.

Not to mention, I swooned when I saw the mention of T.S. Eliot. I absolutely love his work. Although, I'll have to revisit that poem. I haven't read it in quite some time, and forgot much of the threading of it.

From what I can tell, though, you are doing it justice. Don't be so hard on yourself!

Very lovely work!

Author's Response: Linders, thanks for the lovely review! I'm glad you enjoyed this. Founders is just such a daunting thing to write, at least for me personally. I see your point about the Baron's name. I actually spent quite some time agonizing over his name, searching the internet for names that might have been common in the 10th century - that's how I found this name, though really, how can you ever know the accuracy of everything you find on the internet? XD

As for Eliot and his poem - I have always loved the Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, and something about it made me think of the one-shots I was about to write for this piece, so I'm hoping it will help give the whole fic a sense of cohesiveness. I was worried the whole thing would just come off seeming disjointed, with four one-shots set in different eras and seasons and with the different concept pairs that were assigned with the challenge.

Thanks again for the great review!

Melanie
