Malena, thanks for the lovely new chapter! Loved that hot billiard room scene! poor Darcy--loved his confusion about Bingley.
Thank you Kim and Lucy.Comments like yours have been very inspiring all along...
thanks for those lovely new chapters. I long to read more, but then, I know the end is near. Leaves me with mixed feelings.
We are on the same boat, my dear. I have mixed feelings. ANS was really fun to write and share.
Sorry this story is ending. I enjoyed it from the very beginning and will miss it very much.
Thank you for all your wonderful stories.
Thank you, Maria, for reading my material. I will miss ANS too, particularly the landslide of comments it has always brought up. The good side of it? Perhaps a new idea comes up and a new story is born!
By the way, the epilogue is coming real soon.
My dears, the epilogue has just been posted. Enjoy!
Thanks a million, dear Malena, I and so many others adore your work. So it is with a little sadness that we have to say goodbye to "A Naughty Star". But... what about Parson's Pleasure?
Uh oh! That's a heck of a cliffhanger to leave us with there, Malena!!! From what you've said, Elizabeth is not really the Colonel's "heart's desire", it is only lust, so I don't think Anne and Elizabeth will switch places...but if you want to do a sequel and tell us that I'm wrong, I'm sure none of us will mind! Who knows what the Colonel and Anne will wake up to, though! I'm glad at least Anne got her heart's desire!
Thank you so much for such a great story, Malena. I enjoyed every minute of it!!!
Thanks Wendi...so did I! And now back to Parson's Pleasures.
Oh how could you what did Darcy feel? :D
Well, we would only know for sure if I sat and wrote yet another epilogue. But that is not going to happen, so you can choose your own finale. Perhaps nothing happens since Elizabeth has made no wish. Or perhaps Anne never changes because Fitzwiliam's desire is money above all. Or perhaps Lizzie finds herself trapped in Anne's body and Anne stays as Elizabeth for a while until the charm comes to its natural end, to the entertainment of both the colonel and Anne , of course... Or...Goodness me! The possibilities!
How impertinant of you Malena, writing a chapter like that! lol
I would actually like to believe rather that Anne tricked Fitzwilliam into marrying her and did not actually make a wish.
This was a fun story!!!!!!!
Thanks so much for the great entertainment.
LOL Teb...A little bit of thinking will do no harm to anyone, But if you are a careful reader , you will find out what really happened. It is there!
Thanks for reading the story.
Many, many, many thanks, dear Malena, for this great story!
I just finished reading "A Naughty Star," and it is one of the most well-written stories I have read! There was fabulous humour at every turn, and it was almost slapstick in its most absurd moments. How did you come up with such captivating banter? You used excellent Regency tone in your language and sentence structure, with a lilting flow of words that perfectly matched the twinkle in the eye that comes from the theme.
You tackled an almost impossible task, to clearly show two characters being swapped, and knowing who was whom without confusion. You gave us a clear delineation of characters with your writing techniques, including italics, ensuring that the reader knew who was thinking and who he/she looked like to others.
You even gave us a bit of angst at the end! Bravo, and thank you!
Of all that you have stated I only own the absurdity and captivating banter.
As to the Regency style , that is very much Austen's.
My dear betas were the ones who solved the problem of character delination. Debra came up with this quotation thing so that one could differentiate Lizzinley from Binglizzie.
By the way, I will take this opportunity to thank those beautiful ladies who helped with observations and checked both grammar and spelling: TJ, Debra, Ellen, Belen, Denver among others.
Thanks again for taking time to comment.
Hope to find you again amidst my readers at another opportunity
I fell for P&P movie (the one with Keira and Matthew) last summer. Since then I've been avoiding FFs for my own sake, but after watcing the movie about 30 times, read the novel 20 and managed to order the BBC 1995 version a couple of days ago I gave up. "It will not do." This to say I adore this ff, I started reading at 1 a.m. yesterday and ended at 4 a.m. This is ridicolous, cos I'm a mother of 2 and had to wake up at 6.
anyway, thank you, it really had been a wonderful night
You are not alone. I am the mother of four which necessarily means that my house is upsidedown most of the time and still I could not stop until I have written the story through.I am currently writing another (a pair of stories in fact)so you can imagine the general state of my household.
Thanks for your devotion LOL and for telling me you have enjoyed.
have a nice sleep
This is likewise a chance to pay tribute to the intellectual titans like Newton, Pythagoras as well as Leibniz, who thought of great deals of ideas in coolmath that we take for approved today - by using them to offer humanity. As there are so many video games below, to make it easy to locate ones that will certainly match your class, I've sorted them right into junior primary, center primary as well as upper main video games.
