This chapter is just about the best fight scene i've read in the history of fanfiction.
I cried when Eric "died"! You have no idea the happiness that surged through me when Elizabeth saw him alive, although I thought she, too, had died and was seeing the only Heaven she wanted. That was crazy!
I love the lockets, also. They were just such a cute thing to add in. For Slytherins, they're pretty compassionate people.
Please, please, please update soon!
Btw, you did an excellent job combining the history with you story again, it made it all just so much more believable. Report Review
Very clever, naming her Elizabeth. I guessed that the daughter would be named Elizabeth in honor of her, but I couldn't guess under what condiions.
Uh-oh, Elizabeth seems a little indecisive. But Eric is finally getting a little of what he wants, as is Elizabeth.
On to the next chapter. Report Review
Such a lavish proposal.
I don't know, maybe it's just me, but your kissing scenes are perfectly fine. Sorry about the whole 'never been kissed' thing, that must make it feel so odd to write about, being that you'd never experienced it. I can't be sure, though. I haven't attempted much out of my experience range besides magic. =P
And we're so close. The outcome dangles before us. Report Review
Sweet. And so we finally get to see Gaelen Castle. Not to mention the war is fast approaching.
I totally want to know the outcome already. I'm so impatient. Report Review
And so she is free!
I don't think I would have been bored had the chapter been 3000 words along, it would hold my attention to the last sentence. I sound so stupid for not being able to come up with another word, but it's just so intersting! Report Review
And so she is presented with an ultimatum...die or rule?
This is so interesting. I've got to give it to you, Tudor England and Harry Potter combine to form such a fascinating tale. Great job. Report Review
Oh. My. Lord.
I just think this is a fantastic plot!
I was searching through an author's favorite stories (as I do, in order to find good stories), and I came across this. I'm one of the poeple who refuse to read anything Trio related (because I only like stories that aren't described in the books), or with major time travel in the plot (because I hate AU).
This is why I enjoy Marauders era so much. I've given Founders era a shot, and it was good, I haven't attempted the New generation era, and the Other era is one I've only taken a look at once or twice.
But this story! It seems so interesting! It had me scream a bit with excitement. (No, I'm not insane. Only in the sense that I get hyped up with excitement. Make sense?)
Well, I bet I'm boring you with why I like certain eras and all that tosh, so I'll just move on to the next chapter. Report Review

i do love how this story is going. i especially love the setting. i love medevial times. and your character is awesome too. i think this is going magnificantly. please don't abandon this story. i'm enjoying it way too much. and my apologies for not reviewing the past few chapters. but i did this one. and i think it would be really nice for eric and eliz to fall in love, don't you...and i can see that with eliz spitting into the potion, i think henry's going to fall in love with her instead, and forget anne altogether. am i anywhere near?? 10/10 Report Review
I'm loving what I have read so far, C. I'm not usually one for historical fics, but this is excellent.
Slight confusion in the first paragraph. I don't think the expression 'deer in headlights' existed in the 16th century. There weren't very many headlights around back then. Report Review
Cornie, this was great! This is truly one of the very few original stories. Great job! I love how you write, and I'm truly glad you're one of the authors that really do their research. Loved it!

Did I mention already that I love the chapter graphics??? They're so great!! Anyway, I liked the talk between Eric and Elizabeth, we really got to know more about their relationship and feeling towards each other, it was sweet. Elizabeth, your history is only starting. Think not of this as the end, but as the beginning I love that line! It was perfect :] Keep up the good work!

So after hours of cleaning my room and watching The Hills and Greek I'm here to review the REST of the chapters.
Okay, I just get a teensy bit confused with what's going on but it isn't your fault -- and now reading it over again, I understand it more. I love your style of writing -- it's captivating and I feel like I have a clear picture of everything that's going on (when I'm not confused, that is. lol). It was short, but perfectly fine, it was still enjoyable to read. I like Elizabeth's character. :) You've done a good job so far.

Please don't hate me.
I don't blame you if you do.
But I am lazy and have gotten distracted and SOMEHOW I have never come round to finish R&Ring this story.
So here I am, finally, finally reviewing.
Wow... end of the chapter... it was exciting to read. You write really well, the story's captivating. :) This is a very original fic, very unlike anything I've ever read, and a pleasure to read. Going on the next chapter now. :D

You've clearly done your research. At first, I was a little startled to see Henry VIII referred to as "His Majesty." But you're absolutely right! It was Henry VIII who was first called that! My only complaint is that his court wasn't described in detail. This was the King who brought the Renaissance to England. I would have liked to read about it. But otherwise, an excellent "hook" (as one of my professors calls them) to bring me into the story further. Report Review
Whoa. That is some serious narration! Many, many, many people have depicted Anne Boleyn as a witch. But I can't think of any story or account that gives her anything less than otherworldly power over Henry VIII. Congrats on that one! I'm one of few people to hold a Bachelors of Arts in History to not like Anne Boleyn at all! Report Review
Your writing fascinates me, I love the setting and the era...it's really unique! Did you make that banner? Report Review
oh that was a lovely chapter cornie! i'm so sorry its taken me ages to get back to this fic hun. your imagery is splendid! you have a real flair for description and you have done your research - the scenery, the architecture - all beautifully illustrated. well done!
i really enjoyed elizabeth in this chapter - her character really shone, and i loved the way you wove some familiar names into the lords of her court...gaunt, lestrange, crouch, black. very clever hun and it helps to reiterate the idea that those families are very old and their beliefs are older still. nice work!

Hey! I loved this chapter 'specially how Elizabeth made Anne name her daughter after her! :D. that was hillarous. I also liked how you covered up the fact that Anne's daughter was actually named after her paternal grandmother, Elizabeth of York, by Henry VIII saying that his mother's name was Margaret.

wow, that was a very eventful chapter! You did great on describing what happened and the fighting! Report Review
It was very clever of you!! I give you props, many, many props! Report Review
I really like your idea. Magic combined with royalty and history is bound to give a compelling story! Report Review
Oooh, I like the whole idea of this. have you read 'The Other Boylen Girl'? It's really good, and I just finished it. So, when I came across this story, it was very exciting to read. Author's Response: The Other Boleyn Girl was actually the inspiration for this fanfic! I fell in love with the world and began wondering what life would have been like for witches and wizards of the age.
Glad you liked it!
