| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 21
Hey, back for one more review for this amazing story. I wasn't satisfied enough with my last review, so I thought it would be best to just write another one. :)
Anyway, just to make sure that I have said this more than once, this story is amazing! You and Howlingwolf have out-done yourselves with this project! You guys truly make an awesome team together! This was a true masterpiece! :)
I am now officially naming this story to be my most favorite "Count of Monte Cristo" story! Everything about it is just plain perfect! Nothing can convince me otherwise! :) Don't worry, "The Rose of Remembrance will still be in my top three favorite "Count of Monte Cristo" stories. ;)
The characters were just amazing! I love how you and Howlingwolf remain true some them, while changing a few others at the same time. Like Eugenie for example, she was way better in this story than she was in the novel. And like when you kept things the same between Maximilien and Valentine, which I still believe they are the most beautiful couple ever! You did a fantastic job with all of these characters! I don't think I would have been able to do that. :)
You had great twists and turns around every chapter! Like when Franz took Albert's place to fight the Count of Monte Cristo, which was actually a brave move by him by the way. That was truly shocking and exciting at the same time. I was actually thinking it was Crystal. You did a great job with that whole misdirection! :)
Crystal was a great "major" character to this story! She made everything worth reading! I consider her to be the biggest badass in the history of stories! I love how you guys described her and the life she was forced to live. You did an even amazing job with the whole adventure she traveled on in order to find Edmond! Crystal is by far the greatest living created character I have ever read about! You and Howlingwolf have done a great job! :)
I love how you brought back Mercedes in this story. I've always loved her from the movie and from the novel. I love how you guys bring her a new love interest and that she is able to get a happy ending for herself. :) To tell you the truth, I was disappointed by how things turned out for Mercedes in the original novel. Don't get me wrong, the adventure and the storyline itself was truly amazing, but the way how things went for Mercedes had me in tears and I just wished she could have gotten the happy ending she deserved, with or without Edmond. A part of me wishes that Mercedes and Edmond had ended up back together in the novel, because I just always loved them as a couple from the very beginning. That is why I loved the movie more than the novel itself. But now that I have read this amazing story, I think I like how things have turned out for Edmond and Mercedes in this one. I'm happy that they both are at peace and are living their lives to the fullest now. You did an awesome job with them two! :)
I love how you had Haydee in this story. I have always loved her from the novel. I was disappointed that she wasn't in the movie, because I wanted to see who would play her. I love how you have her fall in love with someones else, like Albert in "The Rose of Remembrance" and now Franz in this story. I've always liked her as a new love interest for Edmond in the novel, but I always thought that she could have fallen in love with some of the other characters as well for a change. That was why I was so happy that you found a way to have her in your stories, while providing a new love interest for her. I still think that Albert would be a great choice for her, but Franz would be a great candidate as well. :) I also love how you have the special father-daughter bond between her and Edmond. I have found that to be a very strong point in this story. :)
In speaking of Albert, you have done an amazing job at having him play a much larger role than he did in "The Rose of Remembrance". I even love how you brought back Eugenie and have them "sort of" fall in love with each other. I always thought they would make a great couple in the novel, but that changed once she ran off into a lesbian relationship. I'm happy that you had them both showing romantic interest into each other. I think they will "somehow" end up together and get married. ;)
Fernand was a true monster! I love how you were able to make him so evil in this story and yet, by the end, have him gain some retribution by the end. I could sense that you were switching things up on how Danglars repented of his sins in the novel. I love how you had Fernand get his retribution and also have Edmond forgive him. I could feel the emotion in that! You did an amazing job! :)
I love the nice twist of having the evil spirit, Gankutsuou, part of this story. It really offered up a beautiful refreshment of something new, although, I think Crystal took all of refreshment before Gankutsuou was ever introduced. ;) But still, it was a nice twist for this amazing. I love your imagination. :)
This story was done with so much imagination and dedication! I cannot help but wonder how you guys didn't even go crazy from writing this story. You guys have the most awesome imaginations I have ever seen! Nothing will ever top this amazing story! Nothing! ;) You guys did an amazing job at writing this story and I hope that you two work together again for later story projects. ;)
You know what? I believe this story deserves the "best fanfiction story of the year" (I sure hope there is one)! Because this needs to be the history books or something! I cannot stand the thought of people missing out on this amazing story! You guys have done a terrific job! :)
Thank you! Thank you to both of you! You guys have done me and the others the honor of presenting this story to us and I really love it! Thank you for making this amazing story! :)
Anyway, you are perhaps one of the greatest writers I know! I believe you will make an awesome author one day! I can just see you become a number one best seller! ;)
Thank you for the wonderful story! I cannot wait to read your "Peter Pan" story! :)
Keep up the amazing work! And don't ever give up on writing! ;)
| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 21
Nothing like a great happy ending! I'm literally in tears right now. I just love happy endings like this. I love how Crystal and Edmond have a child and that they also adopted one too. I love that they are growing more stronger together as a family. I really love this new couple together. Great work! :)
I'm happy to see Haydee and Franz engaged and living together. Who knew that they began so differently and now they are living their lives to the fullest now. I pray for a great life for them. Haydee deserves the happy ending. :)
From the sounds of it, Ignis is doing okay too. I love that character, in fact, I consider him my most favorite. I'm glad that he is right where he wants to be. :)
I feel bad for Mercedes, but at least she has Baptistin. She is such a good woman and such a lovable person. It is hard to not like her. I think she deserves the happy ending out of everyone. :)
I love how Maximilien and Valentine are engaged, although, I would have thought they would have married within the first year. But then again, people do take their time. I love them together. I can see a bright and awesome future ahead of them. After everything they went through, I think they deserve to live their lives the way they want to. :)
I was hoping on a little more information on Albert and Eugenie, but that's okay. I think they will end up together, no matter what. I think they were meant for each other. I really do love they as a couple. I want to see they married and living happily together. I think they will be fine. :)
Anyway, you and Howlingwolf have done a fantastic job with this amazing story! I really, really, really love this! In fact, I'm naming this my most favorite "Count of Monte Cristo" story! The storyline is way bigger and better too! The characters are amazingly done and the villains are great too! You do a great job at controlling these characters and the roles they play. A well-done job! :)
This is truly an amazing story. I have never read anything like this before. You and Howlingwolf deserve the "best story of the year" for this. I mean it! :)
Anyway, thank you for creating and sharing this story with us! You two have done amazing and I cannot wait to see your other stories as well! Keep up the amazing work and don't ever stop doing this! You guys have a gift and you will shine bright in this world with that gift! :)
| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 20
Awww! So romantic! I love this chapter soon much! This is truly a masterpiece that will remain at the top forever! I love how you express Edmond's and Crystal's love for each other. They are such a beautiful couple together! I hope life is going to be great for both of them! :)
The wedding was beautiful and well-written. I got a glimpse that things are going to turn out alright for a few characters as well. Like Albert and Eugenie. I saw how Eugenie was "eye-balling" Albert, I can see a bright future ahead of those two. Maximilien and Valentine will be married within a few months or within the following year, I can tell that they want to get married soon. ;) Haydee and Franz will be great together, I also love them as a couple as well. Ignis will be fine as well. I think he will be happy back at his home planet. :) And finally, Mercedes and Baptistin, who will be a nice couple as well. I think I can see a happy, satisfying life for those two. :)
Anyway, I thought you and Howlingwolf did an extrodinagry job at creating all of this! Nice work! ;)
Anyway, I will now read the final chapter. I cannot wait! :)
| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 19
Wow! Wow! Wow! That was just amazing! Words cannot describe the emotion and the feeling of the story as I read this! I mean, I was in tears and my heart was breaking at just hearing Crystal and Albert fighting to save Edmond! That was just amazing how you guys wrote this! I really love this story!
I love how Edmond forgives Fernand and the emotional moment when Edmond is freed from the evil spirit! You have done an excellent job at doing this story! You have done a fantastic job at writing this! :)
I love how Mercedes has found a new love interest. She deserves to be happy with someone. I hope life turns out way better for her than it did before. :)
It is nice to know that Haydee and Franz are remaining together and growing more in love by every chapter. I love them together. :)
As for Albert, I sure hope he gets back with Eugenie. I also love them as a couple as well. I sure hope they rekindle their relationship or something. :)
I love how Abbe Faria makes an appearance in this chapter. I always loved his character. :)
A beautiful ending by the way. I love how Edmond proposes to Crystal. Such a romantic way to end the chapter. You did an amazing job at this story. I cannot think of anyone better for this type of job than you. :)
I cannot wait to read the next two chapters to this amazing story. This is going to be amazing! :)
| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 18
All of these cliff-hangers are killing me! At least I don't have to wait days or weeks for the next update. I love reading stories that are already finished. So much more fun to just go to the next chapter without having to wait. ;)
Okay, this was an awesome chapter! I mean, the story does start a little slow and all of that, but once you get to the part when Crystal meets Albert and Franz that is when things start picking up. I love this story so much!
I love how you have Fernand beg over his son's life. As much as I hate him, I respect his willingness to give up his life to save his son's. Don't get me wrong, I still wish he would just die (LOL!). I'm very angry that he would just shoot Mercedes, the woman who gave birth to his only child! That is just sick for him to do! But you and Howlingwolf have done an amazing job at writing this! I really love it! :)
I love how there is so much emotional and conflict in this story. Like when Haydee shows up to stop Edmond from taking his vengeance and when she expresses her love for Franz. Or even when Edmond's servants struggle over his orders and the choice to do what is right. The part when Crystal shows up really gets things going for the next chapter. I love how you guys are doing this story! It is truly amazing and EPIC! :)
Getting so close to the end now. :)
| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 17
Oh boy! This is getting exciting! The final four chapters are up and there is still so much to go over! I cannot wait to see what happens next! This is truly an amazing story! I want to see what happens next and most importantly, I want to see how this story ends! This is truly going to be one awesome ending! :)
I love how you had Bertuccio explain to the Count how much Crystal loves him and that she doesn't care about what he has done. I love scenes like this! They really make all of this emotional and fun to read. :)
Oh yeah, by the way, and no offense or anything, but I thought the whole Peppo being a "guy" was a little too much for me. Not your fault or anything, I just thought that part was a little too much.
Anyway, I love how you had Albert show up and save the day for Eugenie. I hope that things turn out great for her and Albert. I really think they would make a great couple in this story. :)
I really, really, really love the whole romance between Franz and Haydee. They are so great together. I sure hope things turn out great for them as well. :)
It is about time that Baron Danglars got what he deserved! I never liked him in the first place! I hope he rots in space! ;)
I love how you have Luigi Vampa in this story. He does serves as a great character for the story. Even when Jacopo (who is one amazing pirate by the way) was awesome too. :)
Now, off to read the next chapter. ;)
| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 16
Wow! Another emotional chapter that really hits the spot! This was great! I was yelling out "NOOOO!" all the way through! I cannot believe that just happened! I was literally in tears, again! ;)
Anyway, this was a really emotional chapter. I really thought that Crystal was going to die there (until I read what the little message at the end of the chapter had to say). And true, you don't just kill off the "main main" character. You only do that to the secondary characters. :) I see your point about Romeo and Juliet, they both shared the main character role, so it doesn't really count. :)
I cannot wait to see how things out for Eugenie and Albert. I sure hope they end up together. I don't like that evil Cavalcanti! ;)
I really hope things get well between Edmond and Crystal. I really love them as a couple. I cannot wait to see how things turn out. :)
Off to read the next installment! :)
| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 15
Whoa! That was perhaps the greatest emotional scene I have ever read! That was terrific work! I mean, just fantastic writing right there! I think this story has my vote for favorite "Count of Monte Cristo" story. But, I think I will wait till I'm done reading the story to make the final decision. Anyway, this is truly a masterpiece that will live forever! :)
I love how you had the emotional parts between Mercedes and Crystal, along with Edmond and Crystal too. I could feel the pain and sadness coming from both of those scenes. I was, literally, in tears from just reading it. I really, really love this story. Like a lot! :)
I love how you remain true to the original story of this and how you keep certain parts true to how it was in the novel. You and Howlingwolf have done an amazing job! I mean, the storyline is just so huge and well-put together! This is the work of a mastermind! :)
I love how Franz and Haydee (or Haidee, however it is spelt) are falling more in love than ever. Franz maybe an idiot when it came to Valentine and all of that, but at least he is treating Haydee with love and respect, I'll give him that. And I just love Haydee! I've always loved her character from the novel! You such an amazing job at finding her a new love interest for each of your stories! I actually liked how you had her fall in love with Albert in "The Rose of Remembrance" just a little bit better. That idea was pure creativity and it was awesome thinking also! :)
If I didn't know any better, I think Crystal is getting to Gankutsuou. I mean, maybe she can make demons feel pity for others. If she can really do that, then I guess the afterlife should be watching out for her. ;)
But, anyway, I really love this Crystal character. I even love her more than "Suzette". Don't get me wrong, Suzette was amazing, but Crystal is a badass! By far, Crystal has hit the number one best character on my list! :)
Anyway, I love this story and I cannot wait to see what happens next! This story is getting really exciting! :)
| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 14
Whoa! What just happened? First Noirtier is all sick and weak and now he was just healed from all that. Something tells me that something is going on and I want to know so bad! I really want to know! :)
Great story! In fact, this is starting to hit number one. I might even start thinking of it better than "The Rose of Remembrance". This is getting exciting!
I don't know what to say. I'm in a little conflict over which "Count of Monte Cristo" story is better. "The Rose of Remembrance" had an emotional theme to it that just made the story so beautiful and awesome. I love how it tied in with the movie and yet, had characters from the novel also. But, with this story, the storyline is so huge and so amazing, it just seems to beat the other story with the adventure and revenge plot. I wish I could say which story is my most favorite. I guess I will have to read the rest of this story to find out which is my favorite. :)
I love how Albert is playing a much larger role in this story. As well as Maximilien, Valentine, and Franz. You create such a beautiful storyline and you do an amazing job at controlling all of your characters inside this awesome story. Great work! :)
I love these different love interest couples. Like Maximilien/Valentine, Albert/Eugene, Cystal/Count, Edmond/Mercedes, and Franz/Haydee. You have one awesome imagination! :)
I cannot wait to read more of this amazing story! It is so awesome! :)
| TJ Jordan 6/16/13 . chapter 13
Wow! Great cliff-hanger! And Mr. Villefort is for sure going to get it now! I sure hope he does! I don't care what is right and what is wrong, I hope The Count delivers the greatest beat-down of all time! :)
I love how the story is progressing! You and Howlingwolf are doing a fantastic job with this story! I love how it is remaining true to the original novel (well, in a way, of course :)). The story is just plain amazing and awesome! The characters are well-designed and well-written! Great work to both of you! :)
No offense or anything, but Eugenie seems different from how is done in the novel. I remember her not wanting to get married at all in the novel, to where in this story, she does. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of her wanting to marry Albert (I feel bad for the guy). In fact, I love how you guys are switching up a few things, while remaining true to the original story itself. :)
The villains was greatly-done in this story! I love how you make us hate them but yet love the way they are portrayed in story itself. You guys are doing an amazing job at this! :)
That was awesome thinking for the Count! I love how he made a fool out of Villefort and all of that! Even though I don't like Villefort's wife, I do feel bad for her.
Danglars is just a freaking hypocrite! How dare he try to separate two lovers apart?! Hey, did you know, that some cultures take love very seriously? I hear that those who stand in the way of are killed in other cultures who believe in the power of love. I wouldn't mind Danglars and maybe Villefort meeting up with one of these cultures I read about online. ;)
This Gankutsuou is perhaps the greatest villain in this story. He is completely going to be one heck of a problem for Crystal and her friends. I cannot wait to see what happens next. :)
I love how these other characters are just playing big roles for the story itself. You are doing an excellent job at this! Keep up the amazing work! :)
| LilithArtist 6/12/13 . chapter 21
I LOVED...and LOVE...your story.
It's so goshdarn awesome!
I love the OC - Crystal Morrel - and I love she interacts with the other characters in the setting. Nice move making a love interest for Edmond/the Count.
Honestly, the makers of the anime itself would lose their minds if they read this story. I almost did, but I lived.
But seriously, they'd love it.
| TJ Jordan 6/7/13 . chapter 12
Ouch! That had to hurt! Albert is no longer engaged to Eugenie? I wonder what happened. Although, I don't think Eugenie liked Albert that much. I remember a while back, she wouldn't even sit next to him at some play they were going to. So, perhaps it was for the best, but still, poor Albert. I feel bad for the guy. I hope he finds a girl he deserves or he at least ends back up with Eugenie, who just might have feelings for him.
Anyway, I LOVE THIS STORY! The beginning was action-packed and I was excited with the daring escape by Maximilien and his pals! This is an amazing story! Great job! :)
I will get back to your story tomorrow. I cannot wait to read more! You are one amazing author! I just know you will make a awesome number one best seller! Keep up the amazing work on your stories! In fact, I am naming you my top three favorite fanfiction authors! :)
| TJ Jordan 6/7/13 . chapter 11
A great cliff-hanger! I cannot wait to read the next chapter to find out what exactly happened! :)
I love how you were able to clear things up between Maximilien and Valentine. I really hope that they get married or something. The part to where Valentine was poisoned had me at the edge of my seat, wanting to hear more of what is really happening.
So, Villefort and Madame Danglars had an affair. Why am I not so surprised at these two? I wonder who the lost child is. I bet it is either Valentine or Benedetto, the original orphan.
Now, off to read the next chapter! This is truly getting exciting! :)
| TJ Jordan 6/7/13 . chapter 10
Oh boy! I'm so excited to see that is "inside the box"! It has to be something that Villefort doesn't want to be known. I cannot wait to find out.
I love how the Count is getting more closer to Albert and Crystal. You can tell that he is letting them in some more. I love this story so much! :)
I love how more involved Albert is with this story. Despite that he may not be Edmond's son, he and the Count do make really good friends (almost like father and son, ironically). I hope things turn out great for him. :)
I feel bad for Max. Having feelings for someone else and not knowing if that other person has the same feelings for you. But, I feel even more bad for Valentine. I mean, she must be in so much confusion about her feelings. I don't blame her for avoiding Max, but still, I feel bad for them both. I really hope things turn out great for them. :)
Crystal is my favorite character in this story. She awesome! :)
I cannot wait to read more this wonderful story! This is truly epic! :)
| TJ Jordan 6/7/13 . chapter 9
Whoa! The Count was kissing another woman? Didn't see that coming. What was that about anyway? I hope there is an explanation for that.
Anyway, I love the great job you guys did with Maximilien expressing his feelings for Valentine. That was pretty funny how it happened. Like, literally, I was laughing so hard, I was in tears from the pain in my stomach. I couldn't stand how Albert slapped his face and how much of an idiot Max can be. But, at least he is honest, I'll give him that. :)
I feel bad for Valentine. She is such a beautiful girl and all she gets is just plain old commands from people who should be listening to her. I really feel bad for her. I hope things turn out great for her in the end. :)
I feel even worse for Crystal. Having to watch all of that. I bet Gankutsuou was behind that or something. I really hope that things turn out great for her and Edmond. This Gankutsuou needs to be taken out of the picture, he has caused enough problems already.
Anyway, I cannot wait to read more chapters. This story is so amazing. :)
