|Dreamflower's Mathoms III by Dreamflower||3 Review(s)|
|Larner||Reviewed Chapter: 3 on 3/15/2013|
|How well you've caught the three points of view--the besotted groom, the bride who is already savoring her acquisition (I fear that getting Fortinbras in the deal is already a minor inconvenience she is already figuring her way around), and the grandfather who knows that speaking his mind about what he foresees will only alienate his beloved grandson. Poor Fortinbras, who thinks he's getting such a desirable wife when in fact she's a cupboard-love type! And related to the Sackville-Bagginses at that, and Otho's cousin. Most interesting!|
Author Reply: That's just what I hoped to convey!
(I fear that getting Fortinbras in the deal is already a minor inconvenience she is already figuring her way around) Yes, poor Fortinbras will be sadly disillusioned over the next few years.
My headcanon is that the Clayhangers, the Sackvilles, and the Bracegirdles were all connections.

|This is very clever, the triple perspective. What a heartbreak for the poor father. |
Author Reply: Yes; "My" Gerontius has seen a lass break one of his son's hearts before (in "Trotter") so he can see the signs. But he also knows Fortinbras is determined, there's not much he can do about it.

|Isn't it amazing how wrong we can be about other people? He really did think he had made the perfect choice and her mind was strictly on power and position and food. An excellent look at what was to be an unfortunate mistake. |
Author Reply: He did, led astray by her outward appearance and her surface qualities, just as many young men are these days. It was a very unfortunate mistake indeed.
