This was absolutely, totally, and completely a work of brilliance. Does that sentence even make sense? Ah well, it was just SO DAMN GOOD! I loved it.
I loved the way you described how they felt about water - some people don't write kids well, y'know? (I'm one of them) but the way you wrote it was excellent. Enjoyed it so so much.
Haha. I used to be part of a swim team - and yes, I really didn't like meets. (not quite as bad as text and exams, but almost). It was great, the way you describe got Bruce acted around the kids, and the way they talk and thought - 3 -hearts.
As for the plot, I have no complaints. So cute, the way they overcame their fears and similar, became friends - I would love to read this again (which I amdoing right now).
Thankyou so much for the AWESOME read. Reminds me of my swimming days (in which I hated floors, because they were dirty; and you had to walk with bare feet). Loved it.

Aw! So cute! Damn that spoilt little Raven for getting in between them! How horrible is she! Oh, and I just wanted to know something about your sequel to this story; are there gay couples in it? No offence if there is or isn't, though.

I am in love with this story. This is seriously one of the best stories in the TT category that I have ever read.
Do you have any idea what you've done?
You've managed to creat an entertaining world where, not only are the characters made younger and believable, but hilariously funny, where most of the characters had at least one bonding moment with each of the others, and THERE WAS NO ROMANCE.
None. Zilch. Nada. Zero. Goose-egg. Nothing. Not even a smidgen of a hint.
I now worship at your feet! -does so-
You incorporated almost all characters, they were all in character for their ages, and you made their friendships so sweet. Vic was awesome being the sort of big brother like he is in the show, and I just fell in love with Wally, him helping all of them in some way or another.
The only thing that slightly- very slightly- jarred me about this was that Raven and Robin weren't closer, and they never really seemed to have made up. Because the two were really close in the show.
But I understand; little kid's symdrome I suppose. XD
I am now off to read the sequel, and I'm DEFINITELY putting this in my faves. You've totally made my day with this. Wow... just... wow. :D

This... was... AMAZING! I personally, would just love to know how the conversation with coach Slade went. That'd be great! LOL! Great job!

Aww... I didn't realize how much I missed swimming until I read this. Your story was so good...very well written with good descriptions and just enough angst. I think that it is hilarious that all little kid's swim meets are exactly the same. From trying to get the attendants to give you left over candy, to sneaking onto the slides at the big pools where they'd hold championships, all of your cute scenarios hit a familiar note with me! i really, really enjoyed this story. Thank you! You have inspired me to write my first ever review on and I've been coming here a long time. Now I'm off to your author's page to see what else you've got...

This story was nothing like I expected. Now that isn't a bad thing, I really enjoyed the story alot. I had just never really seen a swim team before (we don't have one where I am in Mass), so I was learning how it worked while I was reading the story. You are also the first author to actually use a character I had never heard of before (Jade, I had to google/wikipedia her to find out who she was), and that is something to be proud of _.
I loved what you did with the characters in this story. They were younger and less sure of themselves (except starfire...) but the characters were still themselves. Robin, Terra, Vic, and Raven really stood out to me in this story. Terra was just so innocent it was perfectly what I imagined her being. Vic was so perfectly Cyborg, as the oldest he seemed the closest to his mature self. Striving to be as good as he was, and surpassing his limits, I think those two traits are what truly make Cyborg what he is in any universe. Raven's abuse by her father was something I kinda expected, even in an AU universe, but you definatly brought her personality together in a believable way. Finally Robin, his relationship with Bruce is definatly the defining part of his life. He strived for Bruce's love and approval throughout the fiction, not realizing that now he performed in the pool was never going to affect how Bruce loved him. It was done very well and I loved the scene when Bruce spoke to him about Coach Slade.
Finally Bruce and the coaches definatly stole the show at times. Slade was just as creepy as always, Harley was still her goofy (at times) self, Clark was still the biggest boy scout ever, and Bruce was among my favorite characters in this story. You could see his heart with how he dealt with both Raven and Robin, which you don't often see in fanfiction with Bruce.
I do have one question though, why did you choose to keep Robin's codename instead of using his real name? I can understand with Raven and Starfire (since Raven was her real name, even though she took other names at times; and Starfire was mentioned to be a nickname/what her real name means).
It was a great story, very different but thats what AU is all about. I am looking forward to reading the sequal and more of your work. Keep up the amazing work. Have a good day!

Wow. I really loved this story. All of the loose ends were tied up and I just loved the ending. It was really nice to see all of these little seven year olds excited about getting together. It was really cute. The whole story was incredible. I liked how you really wrote it only giving what a little kid would see events. It's something that you don't normally think about. A lot of people think that kids can't think for themselves, when in reality they understand a lot more then we give them credit for. They don't understand everything, but they understand a lot. Great job with this story! I'm putting it on my favorites!
Later and I hope to read more of your stories!
