Review:Ilasia says:
Liza, I really enjoyed this! I think it was a great departure from love-centric stories, and as Helena's relationship with her mother seems to be rather uncharted territory, I'm glad you gave it a chance.

This is the first piece I've ever read with Helena, and you've successfully opened up my mind to all the possibilities of her characterization. I think you did a lovely job with her; the ambition, passion, and desire she has to simply be the best at something is very realistic and something I would definitely expect from a character like her (and by that, I mean with powerful parents who always seem to outshine them.)

As I was reading this, I almost detected a hint of hysteria within Helena, as though her drive for being better than her mother meant she would do anything to reach superiority - even if it took her to the grave. I thought there was a very ominous feeling to reading it, which was fantastic and mysterious and so chilling! You did a fine job of setting the tone in this piece.

Really enjoyed this one! Keep up the fantastic work, lovely.

Author's Response: Yay! I'm happy you enjoyed the story. ^_^ It was my first time writing Founders, and I was very nervous about how it would turn out. The reason romance wasn't included was because I really had no idea how to include it and stay true to the era. I was too lazy to study about courting and whatnot, so I decided to leave romance out. xD That, and Helena never struck me as the type for love and romance.

Really? This was the first story you read with Helena? I feel so special, hehe. Helena's relationship with her mother is uncharted territory. For some reason, people seem to focus more on the Founders than Helena. It's a shame, really, since Helena's character and her relationship with Rowena is quite fascinating.

Ah, so glad you picked up on that! Yes, Helena was a bit mad - she was constantly trying to outdo her mother with failed results. And in the end, I think that's what caused her to steal the diadem. She would've eventually gone loony, I think, with her deep desire to be better than her mother.

Thank you so very much! I'm definitely pleased you liked this story so much. ^_^ I'll see you around, darling.
