Wow, great job again! It's worth the wait, definitely.
I'm glad to see that Nadira's a changed person, not trying to basically have sex with Matt all of the time lol
And I hope that Matt and Kate get back together soon and for some fluff to take place!

Thank you very much for your support! I'm sorry to disappoint you though, no Kate action this chapter. Next chapter however will be in her POV, and it's in the works. Thanks again for your encouragement and praise.

This is hands down my favorite story on this website...if not my favorite fanfiction, ever. Your writing is incredible and wonderful and you understand Kenneth Oppel's characters almost as well as he does. Your updates give me life.
As for the story itself, AHHHH! So much angst! The drama! The horror! The scratching! The biting! hahahhaah I love it. I think it's due time Kate got some action of her own. Lucky 13th chapter maybe? Please keep us updated.

Poor Matt. And bitchy Nadira. Like she seriously expects she can just waltz back into Matt's life like nothing's happened!? Jeez, that girl...
Anywhos, great chapter, I'm currently loving the transition stuff, from Matt failing his courses to him naturally crying his eyes out at any mention of Kate. Would be nice to see a Kate POV chapter, with all of her inner thoughts and such, since I have a feeling that it's going to be her that makes the first step to bringing them back together. Nadira, on the other hand, I can say that I certainly hate right now. And I'm glad that the sex scene at the end ended with Matt regaining his senses, instead of committing another thing for him to bemoan later. Maybe he should have taken that lustful attitude he had with Kate? ;)

Wow, it was impressive. Poor Matt... Nadira shouldnt have pressed on him, especially in this way... the saddest part is that I can understand her though :-( I wonder how are you planning to untangle such a mixture of sorrow, angst, self-hatred and other feelings of characters. It seems to be very hard to do...

Wow, your writing has just become more and more fluid as you continue with this story! And trust me, this isn't a boring filler chapter, don't get discouraged because there isn't as much emotional trauma in the coming few segments. I like it how you pace out this story, it isn't too fast and unrealistic, something that many amateur writers will jump on due to laziness.
The much anticipated dialogue between Matt and Nadira was beautifully written. That's all I can say. I had imagined that I would have sympathized more with Matt seeing that he had been taken advantage of, basically raped, but Nadira did present her poignant point of view as well, that I found very believable seeing that she's still an emotional teenager that has suffered greatly.
And no Kate in this chapter. I guess it was necessary seeing that we already got more than enough of her, shall we say, in the last chapter...
So I guess my final word is this, don't despair on connecting the two fragments of the plot you've written out together. There IS a large gap now, basically a seemingly hopeless cause for Matt, but that's where the brilliance of authors like you comes in and makes the resolution believable and not cliche or deus ex machina. (search up that term, it's a cool phrase :D)
Keep writing and I'll keep reviewing lol.

(Too lazy to log on at the moment)
First thing I've to say is that you are spot on with the characters. The way you portray Kate as often analyzing thigs in such a scientific way, like the heart asphyxiation bit, is so perfect. And Matt seems just as sweet and genuine as in the books.
I can't imagine how Matt and Kate are going to end up together! And I feel so bad for Nadira, I like her character quite a lot as well. Can't blame her for sleeping with Matt, he seems well perfect in the stories, I wouldd. haha jokes. Not really. lol oj, erm Pleaseeeee update quickly! x
| predatorform 1/11/13 . chapter 10
Cool, another update :D! It's nice how you don't immediately bring the two back together, though it is kind of depressing how this chapter went along. Kate's little scientific analysis of love was amusing and it sounds like something that she would actually do. Now it's just a test of how far you want to stretch their breakup. Will Matt crash Kate's wedding, meaning that they never talk again for years? Or will they get together again after Matt does something sickeningly (fluffily, I mean) sweet and swoops her back into her arms again. Hoping for more confrontations with Nadira in the next chapter, as well as maybe a Miss Simkins-Matt scene. Maybe Miss Simpkins can be the one to bring Matt back on track again, by giving him a full-blown tirade on how Kate was all depressed over him, and how it was all his fault yada yada yada... Then she can cleverly suggest him to do something for Kate while still maintaining her "disgusting cabin boy attitude" towards him and bring the couple back together.
I don't know, just my crazy mind at work again lol.
| ObeliskX 1/11/13 . chapter 10
Oh. So sad and emotional chapter, full of deep feelings. Have Matt and Kate really made up their minds with decisions about which they would regret a lot in the future? Hopefully not - but it would be really hard to deal with past. No to mention Nadira feelings... I wonder what goes through her mind right now. Keep writing, please! Your fic is probably the most realistic in this small but interesting fandom *_*

Thanks so much for your encouragement! I also noticed you made an account on FF. I hope it gives you the convenience of getting emails on updates and whatnot.
I was quite on edge too, mostly because I can't think how they'd react after all that. In the end, I wrote them talking together in a mature discussion of their relationship. I hope it does the characters justice.
This chapter isn't as dramatic as the big reveal and the fallout afterwards, but I hope I managed to stay in character! Especially on the case of Kate. Thanks for reading!

ABOUT TIME YOU UPDATED! My favorite story, ever, on fanfiction. The hammock simile was fantastic. I love the story and the angst seems very real. I feel so sorry for Matt and Kate and Nadira as well.. Poor Nadira, she doesn't have anyone! But Matt is such a nice guy. Ah. Please update very soon after Christmas and best of luck on all your exams.
