You my good lady, have proved to be a literary Mozart
Any chance that this story will be continued?
This is 2012 and this story is still the bomb what I crave gimme more, and the soundtrack is awesome!!!
I wish your writers block was over, but I understand you can't force creativity you gotta let it flow naturally
The more I read, the more I find myself sitting on the edge of my seat. I always love revisions of classic storiees from childhood, with an adult twist. Can't wait to see what happens.
I love Lykke Li! I wanted to suggest some songs that feel like they go with this story (or more like the songs I listened to while reading this):
Placebo- Running up that hill
Future of Forestry- Did you lose yourself?
Washed Out- You and I
The Horrors- Still Life
Uh Huh Her- I see red/ The slow drug/ mystery lights/ covered/ dance with me/ common reaction/ Dreamer
The XX: Night Time/ Stars/ Infinity/
The Temper Trap- Soldier On
Stars- Dead Hearts
The Irrepressibles- In this Shirt
Blonde Redhead- The Dress/ Dr. Strangeluv
Cat Power- Wild is the wind
Civil Twilight- Letters From the Sky/ Teardrop (Massive Attack Cover)
Florence and the Machine- what the water gave me/ Leave my Body/ Seven Devils
Coldplay- Every tear is a water fall
Very interesting, so is Alice's maid in love or in lust with Lord Mather? I can't wait to see what happens. By the way, that's a beautiful picture! Do you know who the artist is?
Loved it! This story is so completely new and refreshing...please update soon!
I know you're probably busy but I do hope you're updating soon! Loving your work so much!
Author's Response: I've been on a somewhat procrastinator break. I'm been picking at this one (trying to get it right I guess, lol) as well as the plethora of jumble in my head. But after a mini vacay, I will surely begin a revamp somewhat. Thanks for reading and I admire your work!
Wow, wow and wow! This is amazing! Such gorgeous writing, not only through language and prose but the descriptive writing presents such beautiful imagery.
I love Alice, and I feel so bad for her predicament. She is a wonderful heroine, headstrong with integrity.
I kinda hate Arthur but I like him too. He is sexy and very dark yet how he Chessa I find appalling...but even that scene was sexy.
Im interested in who is going to win the battle of wits, Im rooting for Alice of course and I can't wait to see where this goes.
I am desperately awaiting more!
When I first saw the update I was like this:
I love it, It was alot of her thoughts and his thoughts at first I was confused by it but now I understand it. Also, the Interesting dynamic that he want's her because nobody want's her and she dosent want him, so he sees her as a challenge and the added bonus that she's wealthy and exotic is that right?
Well, anywhoo girl I luv this Ms. phenom, please update this asap
Author's Response: It feels a little love hate to me...
There was to much exposition in this chapter, so much so that I felt slightly confused. I honestly can't really tell you what happened, or how the characters processed their thoughts. It also lacked the fluidity of the first chapter.
I really hope Chessa tell Alice about Arthur. She seemed so sure of herself at the end on one, and now she's acts like a scared rabit.
I'm a little confused by Arthur. So he only wants to marry Alice in order to have sex with her? I mean he doesn't seem to need to money, but he wants to tie himself to a woman of a life time, becuase no one else wants hers?
I am still intrigued by this story. Thanks for updating.
Author's Response: There is still quite a bit of editing I want to do with this chapter. It needs a bit more detangling to erase the stuffiness here (I wasnt quite into this one so I'm going in back to clean house), but I can assure you that some things will come to light in the next chapter or so that will bring clarity to a few of the characters motives. Thanks so much for the comment and I hope you continue on!
Author's Response: I am so glad that you do and I hope you continue on with me!
This is not your mother's Alice in Wonderland. hee
It is such a departure and a wonderfully done departure. Your words just draw me into the story.
On a shallow note, Arthur is a freak. But I don't think he's prepared for Alice. I think Alice will teach him a thing or two.
Alice's father's motives may not be what she thinks. Although, that step-mother seems like a horror.
Not sure about Chessa. What will she do to prevent Arthur from getting his clutches on Alice.
I hope you update ofte. A very engrossing read.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. And I must say it will be somewhat of a departure, very much so. Right now it more of a slower space, I'm wading through the personalities and egos but it'll get a bit of a jump start in the next two or so chapters. Thanks for continuing on with me!
yayyy so glad you updated and it was worth the wait but i dont know if me poor heart can handle waiting for another long update hahaha .
And ahhhhh! love love love the music choice! as soon as i saw 40 day dream, it popped in my head and now i cant get it out haha
Author's Response: Yes, I'm definitely setting up a schedule for at least an hour or so a day and at least a post every week. My mind is so jumbled sometimes I'm currently writing like 6 stories (including a western and a cyberpunk) and reading at least 3 novels right now. I tend to float from one to the next in a hitch. Yeah Mr. Sharpe is mah man! Black Water is another treasure of the band.
Author's Response: I know! I did not mean to wait this long, I tend to have extremely terrible time management. It was sitting in on my laptop quarter way through and I was like wtf?
Author's Response: Thanks for the prodding, I actually needed that. I've been sitting on this second chapter for a while now and I'm as we speak tweaking before an update. Thanks for reading!
Author's Response: I appreciate the enthusiasm, it made my day lol. But I am definitely working on getting the second chapter up this week- I've been sick (boo-hoo) and recovering from being drugged up on cough medicine and ibuprofen so yay for feeling better! Second chapter, yes'm at it!
amazing...! this is going to be a very very VERY interesting read!
Author's Response: Oh yesh, yesh. Thank you for reading.
