Does anybody have any questions, comments, etc? *AMA*

While I feel that a lot of loose ends got tied up in the final few episodes, I daresay readers may still have a few questions about how certain things turned out? Or indeed about things that happened in existing text.

With a proviso that in some cases there may be [spoilers] involved with respect to snippets in process or projected.

Honestly, I am most curious about what adult Flora and Hannah are up to, but that takes us into a whole other generation and any number of possible trajectories ...

I sincerely hope that the lady who is no longer Mrs D- K- has a happy marriage out in Nova Scotia, and no one ever finds out about

Who does Sebastian K wed? Does he wed? Do his father and Mrs P find true comfort together in a surprisingly respectable fashion?

Seconding these questions! and adding a third about Bess and Tom O - was their romance just a youthful fling, or something more?

(And I thought I saw some hints of Sebastian/Meg but that might just be wishful thinking.)

Oh, and how Josh ends up as an adult. I have always wondered about his future. (And Bess and Meg, as above).

Apparently, what I actually want is The Comfortable Courtesan: The Next Generation, which is really an excessive request ...

O was going to ask after the F-'s, but I see you've already covered that. ❤

Does Docket ever retire? How well do they manage her health issues? And do she and Biddy Smith ever have a romantic entanglement, or are they just good friends?

What happens to Julius and Hannah? It sounds like Hannah at least stays attached to Clorinda and the F-'s for some time.

Is Milord ever forced to marry, or are he and Sandy able to be devoted "bachelors" forever?

(I imagine the question of whether C and Sandy ever do knock boots might be better left to fanfiction...)

I'm going to be so sad to have less excuse to use these icons, haha.

Oh and a question about existing plotline:

Julia P-, the one who grew up in India, got married to....Lord H- or something? Whose son was also a suitor?

Wasn't one of them also the Lord Handsy that Clorinda kept having to warn all the women about? Which one did Julia marry, and was she happy?

Does the erstwhile Lady N- grow to enjoy her conjugal duties? I hope she does, yet I'm concerned what a pregnancy would do to her in her invalid state. (Does Clorinda teach her about sponges? It seems very improper, and yet...)

I also wonder how Frau P- avoids increase with Mr K-.
