I know that you've chosen to have modern references integrated into your story, but personally I feel that it can really disrupt the flow as you're reading. Which sucks because you're a talented writer and I think your characters are probably quite fully fledged. I admit, I did enjoy reading this, though at times the seconds chapter dragged a bit, with some overhauls of infodump about the character's background/history etc. and very little going on. Anyway, that's my personal opinion. I hope that came out as constructive and not insulting, as I truly abhor flames. And yes, you should continue!

Please continue! I think it's awesome, cute, funny, and intriguing! I like your writing style, characters, and the ambiguity of the time period. I didn't get chapter 1 much, but I still like! :)

This is pretty good. I mean seriously. It could be omnipresent if you would like (you know all the characters thoughts and feelings too) but it's good like this too. Please keep writing and I'll read it!

Well honestly everyone stole my words...bah...

But yes, continue. I'm interested in this. I couldn't stop laughing...^^ (Ah priceless me..)

So continue to make it bluntly...^^;

Hey! So I decided since you've been so wonderful about reviewing me that I should review you and that's exactly what I'm doing...it took me long enough, I know, but still.

first off, great opening line. There are plenty of anachronisms in here(Richard Simmons, THe Weakest Link) but it works. 2nd: You are really funny.(see above) 3rd: I liked how it's simple and easy to get though, no huge long paragraphs droning on about something or whatever. I'm going to keep reading...

I've spent the last couple days reading most of your stories, and then I noticed you had another name and I absolutely love them too. I like this idea, as well, David's so bumbling that it's endearing. I'm excited for the next update!

I really like the medieval but with modern references, but to keep it somewhat in character, just keep the language somewhat medieval (curse it/blast it) and don't talk about modern technology so much. If they use swords now, don't make them use printing presses as well. But otherwise, immensely amusing.

Sorry for not reviewing for a long time. Busy, busy, busy. Good chapter, and thanks for clearing that other thing up. Keep it up, it looks good!

I'm starting on 3rd person too, so don't worry. I think you're doing it wonderfully.

Everything's wonderful so far! Keep it up!

Great chapter. I'm really starting to enjoy the humor that comes with the modern day references... I found it a bit awkward in the last chapter, but now I think it's great. I loved the references to Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader and Harry Potter. The 3rd person omniscient is also really good; it helps set a satirical tone to your story. I can't wait for another update!

Hey, this is really really cute. i've enjoyed both the just ignorant snobbishness of the princess and the almost woe-be-goneness of david. the only thing that caught me was the word 'tossell.' i don't think that's a word, perhaps 'tousle' was the word you were looking for?

but either way, it's great. the only thing i'm hesitant on is the mixing of periods. it can be done and done great (dianna wynne jones comes to mind) but it can also been done very badly. yours has been done really well so far, but as long as its done consistantly i think we'll be good.

ooh, I get it! Haha Harry Potter Fanfiction writer! Guilty as charged! ^.^ I love where this is going, though I have no idea where excactly - it IS going, but I love it anyways! Good job, love the plot, characters and setting! Keep writing!

Um...the old woman part is confusing. I don't really get it...what she's trying to say or anything. Could you make it less...confusing?

Surely words would have fallen to the ground as if they’d never been spoken; even she, in her state of mind, recognized that.

I mean, that sentence doesn't even make sense. And the whole thing with time flashbacks and present time mixing is way too confusing. Other than that, a good start!

I think you have made a good start. However, I am curious to know whether this story takes place in some world that incorporates present day technology or whether it is more of a medieval fantasy... Your summary kind of gave me the impression that it was more of a medieval fantasy. If that's the case, some of the phrases (for example, "Richard Simmons exercise videos" or "heart the temperature of liquid nitrogen") sound a bit anachronistic. All in all, I think this is a good beginning... your grammar and spelling are very good, but I think the setting/time period is a little ambiguous right now. I look forward to reading more!
