AHA! TOKENS OF AFFECTION!

Sorry, that just screamed at me... Anyway. Unconventional Helena again, hmm. The contrast between her and Rowena was striking in this chapter, Rowena so cold and respectful of social codes; Helena so impulsive. I'm starting to really see why it would click between her and Venn!


I loved your portrayal of Helga. She tends to be left aside, or presented as someone fairly simple-minded and innocent, and I adored the fact that you did a U-turn and made her the most progressist of all. It would almost make more sense if Helena was Helga's daughter, no?

I hope we see Helga again afterwards, for instance when Helena steals the diadem!

Author's Response: Hi Val :)

Yeah, Helena identifies a lot more with Helga than her mother at times, as you'll see. Unfortunately, this impulsive nature that she shares with Venn is likely to get them both in trouble, like you pointed out.

Helga is one of my favorite parts of this story, just because she's a nice bit of comic relief in the face of the tragic overreaching themes. I'm glad she seemed different from the norm and that you liked her very feminist-y style. You'll definitely see her crop up more later on.

Thanks for your lovely review :)
