Hmmm. The story is getting kind of angsty now. It fits their situation, but still, not a lot of fun to watch them go through. I am hoping that they figure it out before too long.
Another good chapter. I actually like the backstory, so don't be shy with it. At least you've established the history with their parents, and left it open for the future. Sometimes, the "died in a freak accident" trope is a little too convienent.
You hit some really decent point this time. I think my favorite is how you established that Anna's feeling started changing with the dress. Keep em coming!
My bad! I guess I will put on my glasses next time! Thanks for the clarification. I think it probably makes more sense in the early fifties as opposed to getting close to the relatively progressive sixties.
It's cool. But yeah, the big problem is that means that ww2 starts when Elsa is nineteen, so... Have fun with the next chapter <3
Wow. This chapter took a "cute" little short story and turned it into an excellent story that I want to see a lot more of. This chapter added a lot of depth overall, and didn't force us to sit through two years of angst following Anna's confession. I was actually kind of glad about that. I also loved how much each girl was willing to sacrifice to make the other happy.
On a side note, I did the math on Elsa and Anna. You established that Anna was ten years old in 1934. In Chapter 1, you mentioned that they were watching I Love Lucy, which started in 1957. So, at a minimum, Anna is 33 and Elsa is 36. Is that about right? It feels about right.
From what I've checked, I Love Lucy started in 1951. They're 30 and 28. Elsa was born in 1921 and Anna was born in 1924.
Well, this is a different premise. Kind of interesting, although I can't believe there is any world where Elsa could pass as a man. If I let that go, then the story becomes kind of fun. I loved all the grabby housewives. If only they knew!
I look forward to seeing where you take this.
