I hate Femto and I love Griffith but then I hate Griffith and I love Femto and it's all so very difficult. I hope to reach the end of it soon, just to get some rest, you know? All those conflicting feelings and those hardcoldpainful emotion running through the manga, it's just insane.
Berserk makes me insane, honestly.
I'm sorry to just... dump this on you. I just got some new volumes and I was so excitedhurtconflicted and there was no one I could share it with. And then I needed some Guts/Griffith loving and it seemed appropriate.
This being said, I really liked this fic. Especially the ending, well, near the end, when Griffith decides that there's no real need to seperate Guts from his ambitions, and well, I guess he's just naive that way. I remember when, before he changes into Femto, he's conflicted, remembering them all, and to me it just sort of seems like he felt forced, for all the lives he took not to go to vain.
I'm hoping on a semi-happy ending for the manga, but I'll see that when I get there. Either way, I dislike Casca and go all for the boylove. But that might just be me.
Really, this was very enjoyable. I also like the style it was written in, and even though it is said to be set little after they first met, I can imagine this being a memory of Femto, because of the way it's written. I suppose the style just... touched me, you know?
And yeah, he might be a little OOC, but Griffith can be so... childish, that I don't really think he is. He's ambicious and he fights and kicks and hurts, but in reality, he is still just a child, really. I guess I love that about him.
This was... long. But I hope you got that I liked it -

I'm kinda curious... in one of the last lines, the "He will mold a tool..." and the one following, are you saying that Griffiths and Gatsu aren't/won't be equals? (I guess that and the later line with "Griffith will teach him obedience" have got me somewhat confused. Not b/c it's confusing, but b/c I lack the brain capacity. X_X)
Either way, I really like this story. I like how you portray the conflict within Griffith, dream vs. Gatsu. How he's trying to hold onto the former but that the latter is inadvertantly pulling him elsewhere. And that even small things, like Gatsu's cute!cuddleness is distracting yet endearing to Griffith. I really like seeing this, since one of my favorite lines from Berserk is when Griffith admits that Gatsu was the one who ever made him forget about his dream... which was monumental to me, considering he'd been working on it for a long while and had met many people...
Anyway, sorry for the rant, and GREAt job! -_

I love it. I love how you portray Griffith's emotions and thoughts as he weighs it. Beautiful. XD

Ohh, very nice. I love the idea of Griffith having started off with genuinely affectionate feelings for Guts, and consciously choosing to exploit him - not because he sees what a great tool Guts could be (though that is a convenient additional bonus), but because he wants to shield his resolve from being compromised, to guard against love becoming the inevitable chink in his armor. It's just - so very Griffith, to do not purely what's in his best interests, but what can protect him from scary, scary emotions. (Since it's so heavily implied that the primary reason he agrees to the Eclipse is not actually to achieve his dream - once again, that's a convenient bonus - but to no longer have to be burnt by Guts's brightness - to no longer have to be overwhelmed by emotions he can't control. HAHAHA I LOVE IT.) This is the world's most unnecessarily long review, but yeah, I think you've really tapped into something really Griffithy here, and captured their dynamic just splendidly to boot. I really enjoyed this. :)
