What an amazing ride this story was. I loved Charlie and all the snarky banter back and forth throughout the story. I started reading it yesterday and couldn't stop till I finished reading it today. Off to brew some coffee and start on your next story.

This was quite a ride, Elanurel. There is such a power to your storytelling, it grabs the reader and never lets go. The part where they were reacting under the curse was difficult to read, it was so believable and real.
The relationship between Charlie and the Winchesters is wonderfully constructed and very moving. They all complete each other.
You wrote somewhere that you tone your writing down. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think I saw it here, in your description of the first time Dean and Charlie -conciously- made love. You are an artist. I think nobody and nothing should ever restrain you. Your work is too enjoyable.

All right. I started reading this yesterday and I just can't make myself stop. It's a mesmerizing story, Dean and Sam are perfectly rendered, Charlotte is a wonderful character and everything about the Circle is totally solid and believable in a SPN world.
In a word : WOW!
Merci beaucoup et bonne santé!

oh never mind... lol *blush* I saw it wrong... Just ignore my last review...

I'm confused by your A/N st the end... Are you done with this or close to be done with this story and your already planning on the next one or are you already writing the next part?

"locked tight with nails of failure and banded by disappointment." I loved that line the most of all, although I continue to be impressed by your amazing prose

I loved this story so much, I skipped out early from a BBQ to finish reading it. Thanks, I can't wait until the sequel. I hope John doesn't do anything too drastic!

Although this AU is really out there, I am thoroughly enjoying it. I don't normally like AUs that vary too far from canon. I called my mom a couple of chapters ago and told her to start reading it. Now we are kind of going over the story together. There is a lot of intriguing details that have me hitting the web for references and I love the glowing sigils. I even like your OFC and I don't usually like females riding along with the boys, even for a short time. Thanks... I have to go read some more now *grinning happily*.

just finished reading your story, it was awesome! the idea is really clever, and each chapter is pretty indepth, explaining a bit at a time, i liked it. that fight with Agnes, i'm pretty sure that was the name, was tense, kept me on the edge of my seat, and the gift-use to keep sam alive gave me shivers.
so yeah, strange angels was really good!
| carocali 4/1/07 . chapter 14
Well, I guess that answers my question about a sequel. Yeah!
I love that you've brought John into the fold and that there was this underlying current through the whole demon-hunting. Such an intricate plot and so diverse.
I wonder if John really knows about the Circle - something that Charlotte is hiding - or if he just has pre-conceived notions. i want to trust Charlie, and I think I'll be devastated if she turns out to be a bad guy. I guess I'll have to wait and see.
Fabulous mythology and research. Truly amazing!

"Mr. Happy and the Big Dogs is wrong on so many levels.”
“What’s so wrong about it,” Dean retorted. Sounded pretty damn good to him, actually – almost wished he had thought it up himself. Big Dogs. He grinned. Dean could feel her heart marking time against him as he let go of her wrists, his hands entangled in her hair. “You jealous or something, Charlie?”
“Of the college cover band you’re stashing in your pants?” Charlie asked"
I'm SO glad I had already swallowed my tea when that line came out. That was absolutely hysterical! You have some really nice banter in this chapter and great one-liners! I'm a sucker for those!
So Aaron makes his appearance, although I'm still surprised that Dean hasn't ripped Sam a new one about it! Maybe I missed that along the way, but I didn't realize that Aaron was Charlie's father. Very nice. And I love how Missouri IS a part of all of this. VERY cool indeed.
Seeing that there's only one chapter left, not only am I obligated to finish it (after I do some grading) but now I'm worrying because you certainly cant wrap up Armaggedon in one chapter. Have you started the next installment? I guess I'll have to check your home page.
| carocali 4/1/07 . chapter 12
What a cool chapter! First, I love the nod to Harry Potter with the curses - and how if ANYONE could break one, it would be Dean. The whole healing scene was really amazing and the addition of Ellie is just a little nugget of sweetness. 'Uncle Aaron' did well by her... can't wait to see where else that goes. Will Sammy finally spill about him?
Gotta feel sorry for Smiley though, and I was SO willing to hate him. :D I guess he'll live up to his name after all!
And absolute kudos to the scene on the Impala between the four of them looking at the stars. All is forgiven, and trying to be forgotten.
These are Winchesters after all.
| carocali 3/31/07 . chapter 11
Oh evil woman, you made me stop grading, again! And you weren't kidding! That was just an awful chapter. They were all so mean. I know the demon in the belly was orchestrating this, but my God it's awful to hear it coming first from Sam, then the rest of them. Oh, they are so broken...
And you popped out Sam's eye! Eew! And now what? He's glowing orange, and that's not a good thing. And what about Dean and Charlie? they're off in the corner writhing in pain from the emotional demon whore? Man! Evil!
Crap... now what do I do... I have to grade. EVIL!
| carocali 3/30/07 . chapter 10
Back again! I LOVED the reference to Duran Duran, and it was made even sweeter by the priest knowing it as well. Very fun!
What are these gargoyle things and what does the orphanage have to do with them? I automatically didn't like Mr. Smiley because of his name - just tried to seem too happy. That's always a bad sign!
I'm not sure how I feel about Dean right now. I think he THINKS he's doing the right thing by pushing Charlie away, but it's so painful - to everyone! I'm curious why Sam hasn't shared more of his visits/visions with Dean at least. Dean IS the one person he truly can trust... I'm sure you have your reasons.
Thanks for the distraction. I promise I will finish someday... but for now, I must go grade!

Seeing this chapter unfold via John's POV really helped me like the man a little bit more again. He was never part of the great plan, a mere mortal man suffering the effects of war being made semi-whole again by the love of woman, a woman who bore him two special children and died because of it. No, he was never meant to do battle, to face off against the twelve or Shem, but yet here he is, nestling on a foundation of hope that he may have done enough to let his sons face the battle a little bit more prepared than the council would ever know or expect. Along the way he has built up a tower of support which only now his boys are coming to understand and perhaps to acknowledge. But still he is just a man, deeply flawed in too many ways.
Still to find out that the boys are not coming to the safe place they expected, instead that John is setting a trap for 'the girls' has me more than a little worried now. Sam still has Mr-Uber-Demon crawling around his guts, lets just hope that he can keep it inside when he faced by his father's deceit once again. Honestly this short chapter has me so chilled with worry now. John Winchester may be making the mistake that sets the balance back in Shem's favour. Please let me know you have more winging its way soon. Rozzy
