    That's a good question, Johnadiw26. It's bound to have some kind of effect, isn't it?

    I really liked that chapter, Alwyn. I thought your revelation of when exactly Jean-Paul cried worked very well right at the end of the chapter, and you made it a very convincing moment. I am relieved to hear that Jean-Paul and his mum (and Lamarck) have escaped de Vimeur's men so far. I don't imagine their life is going to be very easy from now on, though.

    That chapter is really nice! I read the last paragraph twice because it's so stunning, but I can't really point out why ! I can't wait to learn about what happens next. Their life isn't going to be easy, I guess ( was it in the first place?) .

    Sadly, I felt that despite making contributions, I did not get recognition of Citizenship. Hence I left. You might call me crybaby, but I was shocked to see that most people whom I had considered to be well wishers, voted against me. Yes, I needed that Citizenship.
    Nowadays, I don't know if it was the site or if I have improved, but I do find it easier to do better on other sites.

    I had already been reading through this, what seems ages ago.
    I must say I'm impressed. The amount of historical detail is just...so incredibly satisfying. I like the fact you're prepared to show the racist views of XVIIIth Century people, when most writers would suppress these. Or, at least, would present them through the actions of villains. I also appreciated the introduction of Lamarck as a POV character (a particularly prestigious one, I must say!) and, well, De Bellecombe's death. It just feels real when heroes aren't allowed to triumph; life isn't fair at all.

    It seems this has stopped quite some time ago. I'd be extremely pleased to read more of it, though!

    I am very pleased that a pic from this was used for inspiration on the Tale of the Week 290. With the links, I came here for a great read. Sad this ended, but whether complete or not it is well worth a read.

    I also remember some cardboard counter board games used to allow the naval guns to be used on land in the Caribbean as Alwyn did here. Brings back some memories. I think one of the games was by Francis Tresham and called Spanish Main, though sadly even wiki does not have a link to the game. The research is impressive. That alone makes this worth a read.

    I simply cannot say enough about the quality of this AAR from 4 years ago.

    Damn I thought that because of the date you would have finished it. Regardless, It is very interesting to read the entirely different tone and voice than New Town, due to its different setting and time. I adore that you chose to write about a relatively little known nation. Of course most of us learnt a very brief history of Haiti's revolt and toussaint l’ouverture but thats it. I really like that you were inspired by Dune, as well. I love when things inspire things not necessarily related. I hope you return to this and render this tale not so bleak an ending.
