"Wow." That one word pretty sums it all up.
It was almost painful reading through the ending scenes, but then again, that was the whole point. You really put the "dark" in Dark Souls with this one, and I applaud you for it.
P.S. Give Ana a hug for me, will you? And maybe this wedding ring, too.

I'd very much like to write a fitting review for this, surmising the feelings it created, the way the story and characters completely immersed me, and the way it will resonate with me for as long as I can remember it, but I'm at a loss for words. You've really created something incredibly unique, something that you completed and left for anyone to read. It's absolutely fantastic. The lighthearted character created a lighthearted tale, with underlying mystery and pity drawn to quelana's story in the meantime. All throughout the story, I was completely gripped the entire time.
Any worries you have about continuity should by now have been laid to rest, but I wish to compliment on you anyway.
The story you told is one I'll remember forever, and 'd like to think there is one such alternate world of Lordran that experienced this grim, yet heartwarming tale.

I have to say, this was BEAST! Never before have I seen a FANFIC written so well and having such a good atmosphere... And such a sad ending. Amazing writing, awesome character development(mostly) and badass dialogue made me read this through. Now, I also have some complaints. If you write a sequel, maybe don't have such an annoying main character, or maybe even write about someone else, like; Ornstein, Artorias or maybe even a Demon or the Ceaseless Discharge. And on the topic, how could such an ignorant character get past experienced fighters like Ornstein, CD, Smough or Seath? And where did Ornstein, Smough and CD go anyway? If you write a sequel, include them. Or better, make it ABOUT them. Awesome story though, I hope for a second one!

Oh my God. That ending was inevitable and I still was not prepared for that. This is seriously the best Dark Souls story I've seen, I think- the mood and all the characters were perfect.
Like other people have mentioned, I can't help but wish for a sequel... what a depressing (but perfect) end.

This story was amazing. You kept the darkness of the game and created an amazing plot. I really liked the fact that you let US imagine how Nemeta looked, rather than a pre-determined appearance. It's sad that this fandom doesn't have many members, otherwise this story would have WAY more reviews. Is there the possibility of a sequel? From the way it ended, you *could* do it, having Nemeta going back in time and changing everything, and following the adventures of her past self and Quelana. *Or*, you could incorporate Dark Souls 2, and your idea of how it'll be. Either way, I loved this story.

This was a lovely story.

My god that was the best, yet most depressing Dark Souls fanfiction I have ever read.
| Guest 1/1/13 . chapter 11
Not bad, not bad at all.

this was the most powerful, moving piece of art i have ever had the pleasure of viewing. You, my friend, are a master. I have shed many tears this night, on the eve of the supposed Armageddon. A fitting way to go out, reading such a wondrous tale as this. And soon, only dark shall remain.

This fic is really nice!
| IamAdam 10/2/12 . chapter 11
This was so DAMN GOOD!
Now, I normally avoid ANY fanstory about a game protaganist that is a "blank slate" in the original. The fact that you made the chosen undead so silly and childish is probably my only problem with this story. And Seath beeing able to possess people felt a bit out of place.
But everything else! Wow! The dialouge and personality of every character is so damn believeble and accurate! I was totally reading the whole thing in the voices of the characters. The story was good, even if qute a few parts of the game world was ignored (im especially wondering about Kaathe and the darkwraiths) but then again, the stuff that you included was all very, very good.
Well done! Favourited!

You know, the flames could come again. I understand that this is a tragedy and isn't even supposed to have a sequel, but many of us want to see Nemeta's story continue. The First Flame came out of nowhere, at random. So perhaps it can come again? Come again and remind her of her hardships, her guilt? Just a suggestion.

You sir, get a cookie for making the end of the world seem like the right choice.
The way that you write the interplay between the characters and the emotions that result from each of their actions is beautiful in a profound way.
As I read towards the end of the story, my heart broke as you revealed what th effects were of Nemeta's actions.
All in all, great job.

Oh, Patches, you silly fool. Did you really think your trick would work all the time?
| Zeromaru Chaos Mode 8/15/12 . chapter 11
this was epic. very well done. the multiple viewpoints made it easy to understand the movements and motivations of various characters. the way it all came together to the end...
you practically turned Dark Souls into Demon's Souls. hell i almost expected someone to say "Bolitaria" at some point. the ending for this was amazing. Painful. but amazing...
