After reading your one shot, I promised myself I would read more and I am very glad I did. I was going to start from the oldest to the newest but I couldn't resist this story. I have an addiction to Historically based fictions.

This was sublime. The characterisations, the writing, the parallels with the canon series and of course the imagery. It all fits so well together and it comes across as extremely eloquent. Which when it comes to writing about past events, I really love.

Even though I am happy that this is a prologue because I do yearn to read more but this is such a perfect chapter on its own. If this was a one shot I would have been fulfilled but like I said, glad it isn't.

That last sentence, pretty sure something that amazing should be illegal. I want to steal it away and have it written somewhere I can always see it.

I also like how you have given hints of a happier time and that it went sour. Sort of foreshadowing for the rest of the story. Sometimes it can be strange and can ruin a story but I feel that this gives just enough away that I want to read the rest. Which I think I will go do now.


Author's Response: Hi Emma! Thanks for stopping by again! (Oh, thank goodness you started from the top! My older pieces are not, in my view, my best work.)

'Sublime' seems like a very generous superlative, but I'll take it! Thanks :) I'm glad the piece feels eloquent and that you felt like this prologue possessed a beauty of its own. I'm always a little concerned with this one that all of the detail will weigh it down too much, but if not, that's great to hear!

It's definitely a foreshadowing. We all know how the story ends, assuming an adherence to canon, but I'm having a blast trying to untangle the rest and find where it went wrong. I'm happy that you want to read on!

Thanks so much for this lovely review, and I look forward to getting more of your feedback as you get further into the main plot :)
