|Reviews for The Minoan Game|
| Sakura Takanouchi 6/16/08 . chapter 8
Wow. Great, great! I know, this definitely doesn't win for most in-character piece, but it sure was entertaining! A fantastic read, almost like a thriller.
And I find this plot to be fascinating. I'm a classics student, so I know quite a bit about the Minoan civilization. ) You didn't go as in-depth as I'd have liked, you could definitely have drawn more parallels with math, music, and language, but for the most part, this did read like you had done some research. Had you?
I mean, they didn't have any games like that, and the Minoans weren't warlike at all, but the game chips and the concept of sound as a weapon is very intriguing. Joey would be right in his assumption that anything deliberate the Minoans did would be considered celebratory or ritual in nature. But it just adds so much to the storyline.
I especially loved how Serenity and Seto's relationship grows, especially around the music. You can just tell, from some of the little things you write, like the way that he looks at her, like a window into his soul...and Mokuba makes this story. I love how you've turned him into a Medieval history/chivalry buff. It juxtaposes nicely with the 'Minoan Game.'
And the proposal- that was fabulous! This last chapter was great, crossing and double-crossing and about as romantic as Seto could be, until that last time- that was a little too sweet for him but a great way to wrap up this nice little piece. I only wish it were longer.
All in all, this was better than you give it credit for. For being an early piece, this just shows the potential you've got as a writer for captivating our attentions. Actually, I'd recommend Katherine Neville's 'The Eight' for you to read- it's a thriller about math and music and chess, something that seems almost inspired from your own story. I hope you keep on writing for us to read, and thank you so much for writing this!

I must say. I devoted about 3 hours of my day, just to read this whole fic. It really was addicting. You did a fantastic job and nailed each character dead on.
And since you warned that this was an AU fic, I knew I would be expecting plot twists and more. I loved this story's plot and I hope to see more of your work.
Great job. This is going on my favorite stories list.
Now, if you excuse me, I must go check out your other fics. ;)

That was beautiful...! I loved it! It was really good! Maybe you could make a sequal? It's not that I dind't like this fan fic...! I LOVED IT! I just want you to make a sequal so that I can keep enjoying your writing and becasue you didn't get to fit in much romance between Seto and Serenty! But I still like it! So maybe you could think of writing sequla! Anyway... SEE YA!

Very well done! I don't usually read pairings, but this one was different. There was much action in balance with the romance, and that was what made this story different than the despised "mush" stories I am so used to seeing. Seto was only a tad out-of-character, otherwise good job.
And the last lines were excellent. :)
| Sakurelle 8/19/05 . chapter 8
Yay! Mokuba is saved! That was such a sweet ending. yeah, Kaiba is a little OOC, but I still like the ending line. What a wonderful story. I loved it!
| sueb262 8/19/05 . chapter 2
Such tension, action, terror-what a wonderful ride! I can hardly wait for the next chapter...
| IrethAncalime3791 8/16/05 . chapter 8
Oh, but it really was a marvelous story! You weren't really that transparent, I had my doubts. And I never had a thought about Yoshi Takahashi...poor Mokuba. Gets taken advantage of all the time...
It was excellent for a first fanfiction too! :) I love well-written AUs. Good job.
| xXRoseGoddessXx 8/16/05 . chapter 8
Great! Yeah they got married! I luv it!
| B.E.W.DWarriorPrincess 8/16/05 . chapter 8
OMG, the last line was so cute!
I hope you write more Yu-gi-oh fics tho. This is really really good.
I usually don't read to many SetoXSerenity fics, but since this was AU, it helped. You're writing was totally awesome. Hope to see more!

Great ending and who cares about Seto being OOC; it's an AU fic, anyway. Love the lines about why Yugi won.
This made my otherwise horrible morning a little better.

| anonymous 8/16/05 . chapter 8
very good...although the ending was a bit abrupt compared to your other chapters...it's ok i forgive you, since this is your first fanfic...and yes, as you said it was a bit ooc for both of them to reveal their feelings and suddenly marry...but hey it's your story...all in all this was a very good piece of work, for your first time...continue to write! i look forward to reading your next story!
| Blu.lotus 8/16/05 . chapter 8
The ending was sort of abrupt but... I think I'll forgive you :P I really loved this story. I hope lots more people decide to read it. Why they haven't already is beyond me! I hope you'll be inspired to do another YGO story! Until next time, Omasuoniwabanshi.
