Yay! I read the whole story once more! I love it so much! I can re-read it every once in a while and still can't get bored of it! The plot is nothing short of amazing! I love Kurt's and the others' characterization. Great job! I'm your fan! :D

Sifting through the trash leads to gems!
You've got wonderful characterization, fantastic plots, and I'm hooked :D

I so love your writing... Wow, first satan himself and now aliens? Interesting. Now it's close to 2 am and I have school tomorrow (er today), but I don't care, I read on... too exciting to stop :)

Wow! This story is just so amazing! You've portrayed all of the characters better than any writer on this site that I have ever read. I love how you show whats going on inside of Kotoko's mind! That was very cool. I also really like the scene where Bobby and Kurt are talking about the movies. That definitely has to be my favorite Nightcrawler scene of al time! Great job! You have a real talent here!

Bravo! That was an excellent story, and it always flowed so nicely. I can't wait for other stories from you they are exceptional. I am an avid X-Men fan and your characterizations and descriptions are all done very nicely. Good work.
| Hi 5/24/04 . chapter 15
Good story, well told.
You've skillfully tweaked one of the more outlandish elements of comicverse X-Men cannon to fit the more naturalistic realm of the films, in a way that successfully pays homage to the former without doing voilence to the latter. I also like the attention to detail, both in plotting and in characterization. Your cliffhanger isn't too shabby either ;). I look forward to the concluding chapters.
| Capitalist Vixen 5/4/04 . chapter 9
yay! new chapter! Just keep 'em coming. That's kinda different from my experience of a lost equilibrium. but then again my loss wasn't so violent. I just kinda fell and started dry retching among the other symptoms.
| Matteic 5/4/04 . chapter 8
Roll him ? Aha aha aha.
Is Kurt very badly hurt ? Some "females" will kill you if he's.
| Capitalist Vixen 5/3/04 . chapter 8
YAY! New chapter! Love the K/O interaction. How you explain about Kurt's ears in the next chapter cause i'm a bit confused. There's not to much description on Piotr so can't say much on that. The characaterization on Kotoko is good though. I'll be waiting for the next chapter!

You are good. You are v good! I love your stories especially since Kurt is my fav character :) Can't wait to read more! Thank you for not over running this story with too much action which so often happens in similar scenarios. Like the description of the alien. nice and original
| Matteic 4/29/04 . chapter 6
Oh my god, it's very good... continue !
| Mistoffelees 4/26/04 . chapter 5
Ah! I came to find two chapters up. Very neat. So much to comment on!
Taking the pilots out of their second skin was just...ugh. Kinda freaky.
I LOVED your descriptions of Kotoko and his descriptions of Kurt and Ororo. Nubs and "twin symmetrical projections"...heh.
I'm glad you didn't end four with an anticlimactic "now we wait" ending, because they're so...anticlimactic. I like Logan's mysterious "Leave that to me." I also get a kind of...proud? satisfied? twinge when Glen dies. He deserved it...dishonorable discharge my ass. On the other hand, I hope Isidro survives.
All these mentions of the "King's Own" and Kotoko are interesting, given what little we know of them. I should draw a picture of Kotoko...he sounds creepy.
"Suspects are considered armed and deciduous." *hysterical* I didn't notice the deciduous the first time I read it. Armed and deciduous...that's clever. :D
For some reason (I have no idea why) I really like Jamie slamming into a tree and making copies of himself. I don't know why...good imagery, though.
Ah! Nightcrawler's been electrocuted! I definately did NOT see that coming. When you say, "The white dome cracked under the stone, unleashing enough amperage to kill the mutant twice over, had he been touching the ground." do you mean "had he not been touching the ground."? I don't know a lot about electricity, but touching the ground makes more sense if you're being electrocuted. Feel free to prove me wrong, I know little about anything electric.
Ah! The alien-type-things speak now, on their little radio things? Interesting. Ah...everytime I read "small nubby appendage" I giggle. Nubby. ...I'm sorry.
Yes Kotoko for saving Nightcrawler! No Kotoko for disappearing in a white flash of light!
I can't wait to see what happens in chapter six. Kotoko is an interesting, if not very foreign character. And I need to know where Kurt went! Need!
Great writing, per usual.
| KusanIvy 4/22/04 . chapter 4
Let me start by saying that I was so happy when I found out you'd started posting on . You write the best X-movie fan-fiction I have ever read and "Talons" is by far your best piece. You manage to do what so many other fan-fic writers fail at - mainly adding original characters. At no time do your OCs overwhelm the story - the story always revolves around the X-Men.
| Mistoffelees 4/19/04 . chapter 3
I love this - the aftermath of the "battle". Piotr falling to his knees was depressing - it's like he was trying to block out what happened by focusing his already depleted energy on something else. :( *sniff*
Kurt looking pitiful was cute. "I suppose I must settle for looking pitiful." He looks that way a lot...
The pilots inside the robots were creepy. When Xavier said they were comatose, I thought he meant they'd been knocked out...but obviously it is something much more sinister than that. Is that what the crazy man in the first chapter had on the back of his neck, or something like it? That blue gel threw me for a loop. ...Threw me...that makes no sense, but you know what I mean.
Gasp! Your story is actually making me like Piotr more than Kurt! Is that possible? *tries to like Kurt*
I can't wait until the next chapter!
