First of all, thank you for being so specific in your areas of concern- you have no idea how helpful that is. I just hope I'm able to help you!
The wording of this was just beautiful, it was so ethereal! It did seem some how wizened, but it definitely didn't come across as dull. It was more like... delicate. Very, very lovely.
I also thought it was great that you used Perenelle and Nicholas, it's so rare for them to even be mentioned in fanfic, so to write a whole story based around them was just lovely.
I found it slightly confusing, and had to read it over twice, but I'm quite tired, so I think it was more the fact that the plot was quite complex that the fact that it was confusing.
I think you did a wonderful job at portraying Perenelle and Nicholas' relationship, it was just how I think a couple their age's should be, not to wild, but so close. Perfect.
The ending was so perfect, as well, it was open ended, yet it seemed like a definitive finish. Just how endings should be, really.
You asked whether I thought you should continue this. Well- I would love it if you continued, because your writing is wonderful, and it would be fascinating to read more about Perenelle and Nicholas' lives, however I think this story also stands alone beautifully.
I actually had a lot of difficulty reviewing this without keyboard slamming, because your writing so perfect. It's completely magical, and you are probably a famous author in disguise. Possibly a resurrected Bronte. Your writing is so so so wonderful.
Thank you so much for the chance to discover such a brilliant, wonderful, amazing, story.
Author's Response: Ohmygosh ♥
Thank you one million for such a gorgeous, kindly and thoughtful review! This is honestly one of the nicest reviews I've ever got, really truly! Thanks so much for taken the time to review this - I'm sorry that its taken me so long to respond. I had a fanfiction hiatus of a few years and so coming back to be greeted by this is really, really special. Thank you!
In some places, I do also find that it's a little confusing. I think in areas I over-describe, so you're entitled to feel a little frazzled by some parts. I think I get swept up sometimes :P and as for the plot, the way I kept it quite vague does also add to the confusion, accidentally admittedly, so I think if I was going to edit this in the near future I would iron some of that out.
You are far too kind! Thank you loads and loads for this review - honestly. I can't really express how special it made me feel. Thanks again, lovely. ♥
