Review:MissMoneypenny says:
Hello!

First of all I'd just like to congratulate you, because this must be an extremely hard plot to pull of sometimes, what with all the historical accuracy, and the writing style, and everything. So hats off to you for that.

I'm really enjoying the story so far. I have to say, being a bit of wimp when it comes to this sort of thing, I wasn't ver the moon when I heard how Rose's family was now sort of... Is discredited the right word? But then I suppose it makes your fic stand out from others, and also emphasises the whole plot of Rose's search for a husband.

Rose is brilliantly written. She's a bit unpredictable, isn't she, and that's what makes her great. I am impatiently (not to say that the plot is moving slowly) awaiting more interaction between her and Scorpius/Darcy. And, if it's OK, would you mind putting in some good stuff that happens to Rose? Like, I don't know, everyone noticing how beautiful she is? Or she suddenly inherits a large amount of money? Or, at the very least, she learns how to conduct herself in public and becomes the toast of high society?

... Sorry. It's my own form of escapism.

Anyway, thanks for a great story, and please update soon!

Miss Monepennny :-)

Author's Response: Thank you very much! It can be a challenging story to write, especially in trying to find the right balance between historical content and plot development (I keep veering toward the former to my dismay :P), but it's also just a fun story to write. The Regency period has a lot to offer, and I'm enjoying my first foray into it.

It's fantastic to hear that you've enjoyed the story so far. It was a risk to make Ron and Hermione unpopular in the wizarding world, but it made for an easy equivalent to the social position of the Bennett family in Austen's novel. Lady Catherine and Darcy himself have issues with Lizzie's family, and it ends up being a significant aspect of the novel's plot. I also wanted to take advantage of the fact that Hermione was tortured in Malfoy Manor - it's not something that comes up often enough in fanfiction even though it's a major traumatic moment for Hermione.

I'm so glad that you like my Rose! She's an odd character - at least in my mind - and I haven't quite figured out how I want to develop her. Good things will definitely happen to her! Thank you for mentioning that - she does need some happy moments to improve her self-esteem and ready her for the next encounter with Mr. Malfoy. :D
