Author's Response: Thanks!
*sniffles* Wow... I'm .... not sure what to say. I think I'll think about it and come give you a real review later. That was simply an amazing story. Just amazing.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm very fond of this story myssef, and praise for it pleases me a lot!
Delighted to find that you posted this here! I've been utterly bereft since you left the "Patriot" fandom, and rereading old favourites like this is all the consolation I have.
And that's no small consolation, really--this story remains just as fresh and interesting as the first time I read it. It's a superb piece of Tavfic, and of time-travel fic in particular. Using an 18th-century observer--particularly a young servant--as the protagonist was a brilliant decision, completely immersing the reader in the 18th century along with your time-travelling modern character and avoiding the all-too-common "past as freak show" (and poorly-researched freak show, at that) aspect of time-travel fiction (like, we modern folks are, you know, *so* superior to those stupid old-time ppl, and, like, who even *cares* about history anyway?)
Thank you again for a marvellous read!
Author's Response: Hi! Thank you. I am pleased with how the story turned out. Maybe I'll try more first person narrative. Come to think of it, there aren't too many first person Tavington fics (as in narrated by Tavington. That might be fun.)
I've got to say, it's the sign of an incredible story that, even having read this several times and beta-reading it, I'm drawn back to it again to read it over. Hannah is such a sweet and charming young lady, and her frank and innocent story, starting from her view of the life she led, makes me misty-eyed every time I read it. I just wanted to say so again. This is lovely work. I feel like it makes me realise something new each time I read it.
Author's Response: I really appreciate your support. I've just completed the complete rewrite of my Arcadia story, and now am thinking about a new project (and not a fanfiction one). Your kind words give the kind of boost I need!
