Comment on A Woman is Entitled...

    This was sweetly tuned, note-perfect, and nowhere near the earworm that the show was. It is also a perfect explanation of events as we saw them.

    I now insist upon a sequel in which Gwynne and Isabella rescue the original Madalena from the mirror! (Hopefully while leaving Megara in play!)

      Thank you!

      I knew almost at once after the assignment hit that I wanted to deal with the "two Madalena" problem, and I had a lot of fun working out the details. Writing dialogue for Gwynne and the Jester was especially entertaining.

      We'll have to see about a sequel (you, of course, know what my next fic deadline is), but it's certainly true that somebody ought to try and spring original!Madalena from her mirror-prison. The logistics are going to be a challenge, mind -- Isabella being currently in pink-walled exile, Gwynne being convinced that Everyone's Going To Die, and the mirror being securely fixed to the wall of Megara's secret lair. Then again, this is a musical. And a fantasy....

        I believe in Gwynne! And sometimes fatalists make the best heroes. ("Might as well get killed doing this as anything else, I suppose.") *firm nod*

        It's a musical and a fantasy and a fairy tale! It's totally possible to mount that rescue mission. I ask only that you finish that rescue mission, instead of winding it up into the biggest, most-convoluted, no-resolution cliffhanger you can manage. And of course, that you tackle it because it pleases you, and not because your peanut gallery is pushy. :-)
