for What a Peace Is Mine

I always love coming back to read this. Even though you haven't continued this for so many years, the prologue and first chapyer are just so well written. Also, all of this is 25k long so I cant complain.

Have we any hope of this being continued? It is very good and I should like to see how it proceeds.

Well? We're waiting.

Are you still alive? I certainly hope that you are.

I hardly ever bring myself to review anything, since 99% of fanfiction is not worth reviewing. But the 1% that is worth it leaves me dredging hopelessly.

You are one of two authors on here that has any conception of what True Grit was about, and an understanding of the time period in which it was set. This 'continuation' story has a sounder premise than any of the others (which are so full of holes, they could act as sieves). I understand how life catches up to you, and writer's block sets in, but I think you would have a considerable number of grateful readers if you continued this one (You are also the only author who has remembered that Mattie would have to mount her horse from the right side).

I love True Grit for its honesty and it's 'realness'. The only other book I can think of that measures up to it is 'Savage Sam'.

Would be very glad if you continued. :)

I am heart broken that chapter 3 hasn't made it up :.(

Are you going to continue!? It's so good!

This is fantastic so far! I love the historical threads you've woven throughout and the letters between Mattie and LaBoeuf were amusing. I hope you still have plans to continue this- it's been excellent! :)

I cry because this fic hasn't been updated since last year and I just love how you've set it up. Truly it is magnificent. Well, I will continue to live in hope of updates!

Dear xcgirl:



I see an anachronism. "Ms." is a coinage of the women's liberation movement; it wasn't used in the 19th Century. (And, while I'm being a stickler, I might also mention that the phrase is "a central *tenet* of Our Lord's teachings". "Tenements" are dwellings.)



Sincerely,

Qoheleth

This is the second True Grit fanfiction I've read, and really I'm happy I did fall into it. This story you've crafted is amazing, truly. The correspondence had me roaring at times, I must say I am very excited to read the next bit !

This is a wonderful piece. Witty and interesting. It stays true to the original theming of the film which was so well-crafted, but your historical details and sure handedness with suspense give it a definitive voice from the author.

I very much enjoy this and hope you see it through to it's finale.

Is this to be continued? Please say yes :)

I must admit that by the time I had finished the first cahpter, I'd completely forgotten that it was just the prologue :P

It was completely absorbing in that Mattie and LaBeouf were written very well. You managed to cappture thier voices, and I could hear them talking as I read.

I especially loved their little nicknames for each other.

Great fic! Can't wait to read more!

So, this? Is AWESOME.

I love the details, the rapport between Mattie and LeBoeuf, the little glimpses we get to see Mattie with her family. Mattie is so very IC: in charge but still rather rough in her social delivery.

I thought the first chapter was going to be a setup to this grand swept romance (and cracked up the whole time at their letter exchange), but you have a plot! An awesomely set up plot, and I ate this whole thing on my lunch break.

I know you must be terribly busy, but I do hope you continue this. You have a great style, and selfishly, I want to know how it all works.
