Haunting... the letter, especially, was a wonderful touch!

This is so beautifully written! You've captured the mood and feel of the whole Tudor atmosphere perfectly, and I just love how the whole thing is so poetically written. Great work, and I look forward to more of your stories!

Oh, I love the Tudor period. Speaking of love, I adored the way you described "the Three" as being not a trio, not a triumvirate, but simply a Three. Again, it's the little things that make your work stand out.

Anne Boleyn would have to be my favourite. For that alone, not only the innate beauty of the sentence, this line in particular appealed to me:

"A precipitate rise equaled only by the fall that would follow."

Oh, and:

"Anne was a slender thing, slender and quite unconsciously stately as well – rather like the striped tulips that Margaret of Austria, her former mistress, was so fond of."

Poor Margaret Wyatt. Beauty is in so many ways subjective, yet often follows a definitive guideline. I've realized that there are so many gorgeous people out there, yet what we define as being "beautiful" has become reasonably commonplace. White teeth, nice hair etc. In this day and age, anyone with enough money seems to be able to achieve this. It saddens me for some reason. Sorry, babbling again! Back to the review!

"Now? Now there are none." With that closing line I could almost hear the sound of an old book closing, flinch from the dust dancing away as the fragile pages snapped together and see the book being put away amongst countless other volumes. In other words? More simply put? Closure.

I came across this yesterday, but didn't get enough time so I came back to it today. I liked how you mixed historical elements with fictional ones - such as your own character.

I thought that the structure was extremely interesting, with the italicised bits and all (sorry, I'm not explaining myself properly here, but you get what I mean, right?)

I also loved the characterisation. Each of the girls felt fully developed and your last line was one that had impact. So, good work on that.

Um, I did think that the part where you were talking about how the girls interact with each other, was a little long and got a little tedious. Other than that, this was a wonderful piece.

Good job,

Review Game! This was very interesting, and managed to capture my attention from the beginning. I'll be thinking about this for a while after this review is posted.

I like how you totally develop your three people, so that I know them inside and out. I also like the beginning, of how you introduce Anne, Cecily, and Margaret and we immediately smile at Anne's name, because we know what's going to happen.

I think you devoted a little too much time on describing how they affected one another. After a while, it kind of felt like we'd heard it before. Maybe you could kind of spend some more time sweeping around how Queen Kate had Mary, Queen Anne had Elizabeth, and then her head was chopped off... ya know, that kind of thing.
