Here at last :D

I'm going to start off with this line: "but when the average level of intelligence in the room was painfully low, even the greatest society ladies will have difficulty inspiring rational speech." That was hilarious. The humor in this story is so subtle and dry, but you really do have some gems. This line, and the story of Dominique's husband being eaten by a kraken are prime examples of that. They make me laugh as much as I would in a purely humor story, but you integrate them so perfectly that they still fit the era and the mood. Going back to this line, I love that Rose may not be above the other ladies in status, but because she doesn't care as much about her appearance, she actually has an intelligent bone in her body xD

The end scene was beautifully tragic as well. It tied in perfectly with "Pride and Prejudice", and as it was one of my favorite scenes in that novel, I'm really glad you included it. I'm interested to see how they're going to fall for each other in the end, if this only has traces of Austen's novel from here on out.

Another lovely chapter. I can't get over how perfect the style of this is. You write in so many different styles, and you do them all perfectly. Can't wait to read on! :D

Author's Response: And I'm here at last to respond. I'm very sorry to have taken so long - I've read your reviews a few times already and really appreciate that you took the time to read and review this story. It means a lot to hear from you! ^_^

Those bits of humour are so random, inspired from various things (BBC's Sherlock for the first and the Quirk Classics version of "Sense & Sensibility"), and I'm really glad that you like them. *blushes* I never think they'll be suitable, possibly taking the parody too far, so it's great to hear otherwise.

With Rose and her lack of focus on appearance, I'm entering that sticky area of brains vs. beauty. Rose does have both, but she doesn't care about being fashionable or improving her beauty. Perhaps what makes her more intelligent is that she is that she knows there are more important things to care about - she sees their attempts at fashion useless and the waste bothers her. I think I'll have to work that in more, actually. Thanks for mentioning it! :D

I don't know how to thank you enough for your compliments and enthusiasm, Naida! It's wonderful that you're enjoying the story so much and I hope that I can keep up the style, characters, and plot. ^_^
