That was perfect! I can't even say anything more than that. I loved every bit of your story-nothing left me wanting. You're too good a writer. Christine started off initially as very withdrawn, quiet, and extremely sheltered. But by the end, her strength and growth were very believable. Erik, too. You did an amazing job being able to write him with the mask he wears to the rest of the world, and the way he wears it with Christine. I could tell very easily how the mask was a tool to frighten and intimidate for everyone else, but, to Christine, he wore it as armor.
I enjoyed how you wrote Nadir-he didn't immediately put his trust in Christine, and that was so well-written. His actions and his reactions towards Christine and Erik, moved by concern for a friend, could have only been pulled off so well thanks to your writing.
Please don't stop writing. I've enjoyed practically all your stories in less than a week! You write Leroux in mind very, very well and I think Leroux!Erik (with hints of Kay) is where you excel at.

This is quite honestly one of the best AU fanfics I have ever read. The pacing is perfect and the character growth is apparent and so well written. I love how you write everyone. I almost wish the story wouldn't end so I wouldn't have to stop reading! You are, by far, my absolute favorite PotO fanfic author.

Thank you for sharing a beautiful story which I enjoyed reading very much. You are one of my favorite writers. I enjoyed reading your works, they are well written.
Wishing you a good time off from writing and hope to read more of your work again in the future.

*sobs* OH MY GODDDDDD SUCH A WONDERFUL STORY X'D THIS IS LIKE MY THIRD TIME READING IT. I love this story so much because its so realistic i knew someone who was a lot like erik so this story kinda hit close to home, but in a good way, because it helped me understand where they were coming from and see the relationship from an outside perspective. I would have liked to see a few more mushy scenes but I'm a hopeless romantic so i always want more mushy scenes but this story was wonderful nonetheless. You are a wonderful writer and i enjoyed this story immensely :) thank you

This was a beautiful story. Predictably, Christine did some destructive things (it goes with the role). As usual, I cringed and muttered, "oh, for Pete's sake" when she unmasked Erik, also when she kept running into Raoul at the worst possible times. No matter how many incarnations there are of her, that girl will never learn, heh, heh. She must have unspeakably bad karma.
Both characters underwent considerable metamorphosis over time, due to each other's influence. When Nadir "rescued" Christine from the impending forced marriage, Christine's subsequent panic and loneliness for Erik felt very real. Christine apparently did forgive Nadir for allowing her to think Erik had died; that was a good thing, or they wouldn't have had a witness for their wedding ceremony.
Their nuptials (which weren't included in Anathema) deserve a one-shot. Broken-Vow, would you consider writing a follow-on wedding story for your loyal readers? We bravely soldiered through the darker parts of the story; don't we deserve to enjoy the happiest day of Erik and Christine's life together? Maybe a few paragraphs about their return to musical performances could be included too. Erik and Christine ARE music.
Cutest line: "Would you please stay here with a monster?" Awwwww . . . when I read that, I wanted to give a huge hug to Erik, our adorable, awkward, skinny orphan.
My favorite scene: "The Kiss". Christine was right to wait for Erik to claim a kiss for himself.

Oh. My. Goodness. How date you play with my heat like that in those last few chapters?! As far as creating an amazing story that had me in tears, you did a wonderful job. This type of Christine was new for me, and I admit that she was a bit infuriating in the beginning, but I rather looked her in the end. As for Erik, I just about fell in love with him. You did a great job, and keep up the good work!

Awwn you could write an epilogue with a bit of their married life... :3
| phantom-jedi1 2/12/13 . chapter 46
Thank you for this story! It was a pleasure to read something a bit different than the usual for this fandom, and particularly something well-written.
| Guest 2/8/13 . chapter 46
An epilogue would be great. How will Erik handle the wedding night?
| feline88 2/6/13 . chapter 46
wonderful story ...As are all your works...Thank you for being so thoughtful about updates and finishing story so nicely ..your a class act!...look forward to anything else you decide to write
| hicdracones 2/4/13 . chapter 46
It is really good that Erik is singing again. I like your description of what was in the hidden room and also the various papers from his "job" on the desk. The ending wasn't too abrupt, but there is still enough that could be related in an additional post or two sometime in the future. :)
