Just wanted to say that I found this story sometime this morning and couldn't stop reading until I hit the very end! Some people may be annoyed with the main couple, but I thought everything was well thought out and well executed. I've never read such a good RedXStar story before. Superb, I always enjoy reading your works :D

This story is simply amazing. Im so happy I got the chance to read it. It really touched me and I almost cried (wait! I did cry...) when redx left Starifire, This just so amazing, Im amazed. This story is just wonderful (I know I repeat myself alot). Aslo I really love the ending, where we can imagine what will happen. In my case, its redx coming back to Star :D
Anyhow, I really can't wait to read your other fanfic because you're simply an amazing writer. Keep on the good work.

I have read all of your fanfiction on this account and I'm addicted. Its simply amazing and I love how you bring the stories and characters to life.
But... The Texan accent is a bit stereotypical, eh? I was born and raised there and I don't know anybody that says, "howdy" unless we're making fun of the stereotype. Ah well, it made me laugh.
Thanks for all of your stories!

AM I the only one who laughed my butt off at the end?

I really loved this story, now could you tell me who was at the door? I really want to know.

You're right, I can certainly understand how writing a Robin/Blackfire pairing would be difficult. However, I still really hope that you will one day write a "Robin vs Slade" story. Slade (or Deathstroke the Terminator for comic book fanatics such as myself) is easily the best villain on the show. Not only that, but he is actually my second favorite villain in the DC universe, right behind the Joker. This is why I'm very disappointed that he never appeared in any of your stories (except for that very brief cameo in "Clueless"). I'm extremely interested in how you would portray his character and his rivalry with the Titans, namely Robin. I really grew to love their rivalry after the episode "Haunted". That was by far one of the darkest episodes of the series, not to mention one of the best, just behind the Trigon story arc in my opinion.
"Starfire vs Blackfire" is also a rivalry I would very much like to see your take on. To me and plenty of other people I've talked to, Blackfire was very underused on the show. She had a lot of potential as a villain, and it was quite irritating that she only appeared in two episodes (especially since I didn't care for "Sisters" all that much, but really enjoyed "Betrothed"). In my opinion, both Blackfire and Kitten were the two enjoyable villains that didn't get enough episodes centered on them.
Well, here a I am rambling again. I'd probably better stop typing before I get too wrapped up in chatting about the show. Have a pleasant week, Kryalla.

Joshua: I'm not offended. I understand that Secrets of the Heart isn't everyone's cup of tea. Yes, Starfire is different than I normally write her, she's harder and less forgiving of Robin's mistakes and wasn't prepared to wait for him, but I still stand by her characterisation in this case. You have a problem with her in this, which stems from personal feelings about the given situation I guess, and that's fine. I can't expect everyone will like what I write all the time. I write fanfiction for me, I share them with others. I like the way the story headed, so I'm happy _. There's enough other things to read it shouldn't matter too much if I branch out and try something different.
I think the Blackfire/Robin pairing would only work if Robin was a lot older and lost contact with Starfire, and/or Blackfire put the same time in showing she was reformed that Red X put in to the Titans (as shown in the flashbacks). I think Robin would still have a hard time trusting her because of all the stuff she's done (where as RedX has canonly saved Robin on several occasions). Maybe one day I'll be inspired for that one. I'd probably have to do it a lot slower than I did the whole Starfire/RedX relationship, because I think one of the major problems you had was in the time skips and flashbacks, where only certain moments were shown, not the whole evolution of the relationship. I concede that I find that a problem myself (looking back), and if I did this again, I'd show a lot more development for RedXStarfire.
K-T: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it, it was different than anything I tried before and I liked the style of flashbacks, although I think I will have to refine that and make it a little clearer. I certainly liked Red X Starfire, but I wish I'd spent a little more time developing their relationship. It was fun to dabble in that for a while, but I'll probably head back to RobStar from now on.
I never really liked the whole RedX is Jason Todd slant, because I think if he was in this case, he'd be dating Starfire to get back at Dick and Star would be stuck in the middle. That would be a terrible mess. I also feel the timelines don't match for him to be Jason, but each to their own.
Also, please don't anon argue. It's up to me to police my anons, if an anon is still visible in my reviews, it means I don't have a problem with what they have to say. Anything rude/disgusting/disrespectful will be deleted before people get a chance to see it. Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

I was actually joking when I made that whole "Robin dating Blackfire" remark, K-T. I just wanted to see how some people would react if I wrote that. Now that I think of it however, that comment really wasn't that funny and I probably shouldn't have written it. Of course I wouldn't want Robin to do something like that. It would be horribly out of character for him. Unless of course, the reason he did start dating her was because he truly did fall in love with Blackfire, but that seems highly unlikely. Then again, so did Starfire falling for Red X. However, I still don't buy Starfire's and Red X's romance for a second. Yes, I have read the entire story and I still don't buy it. If you're wondering why, look up my past reviews for this story.
Also, I'm not trying to hate on Kryalla Orchid at all. Truthfully, she is one of my favorite Teen Titans authors on this site, I just hated this one story is all. If you don't believe me when I say Kryalla is one of my favorite writers, read my recent reviews for "Touch" and "Clueless". I loved both of those stories and gave them very positive reviews. I also enjoyed "Communal" and "Orange Colored Cliffs" to a very high degree. Heck, I even enjoyed "Stolen" which was a Robin/Raven pairing, something that I normally don't support at all. However, the reason I enjoyed it was because everybody still felt in character, unlike "Secrets of the Heart", where I felt people (namely Starfrie) were horribly out of character. If you like this story, that is fine. You are entitled to your opinion as I am to mine.
Sorry to write another long and negative review of this story, Kryalla. I just wanted people to understand that I was only kidding about my previous "Robin dating Blackfire" remark. Anyhow, I am still eagerly anticipating your next story, even if I really didn't like this one at all. I am still hoping you will take me up on my "Robin vs Slade", "Starfire vs Blackfire" and/or "Robin/Blackfire" pairing stories (I mean an actual pairing of course, not the dating her to get back at Starfire joke I made earlier. I just think that it would be interesting to pair Robin up with someone else since you paired Starfire up with someone else, but that is just me). Once more, I apologize for bugging you again with my negative comments on the story. I know you have already heard them before. Oh, and I hope there are no hard feelings between us about that "Robin dating Blackfire to get back at Starfire" comment that seemed to offend you somewhat. Again, it was just a joke.
((By the way, sorry for not putting my name on my previous comments again)).

It's so great I love this story! I never thought if Red X and Starfire before bcuz I'm into robstar but actualy I really like it, this is so good! Wow, you're such a great writer and I wish this were a real movie or something, yeah I'd watch it. I thought of Red X as Jason but this is cool too. I wish there was more, I love this! Even though I'm a robstar girl I saw how starfire could love Red X and I wanted them to be together at the end so that's what I think happened. Lol!
That anon down there talked about being accurate but then says RObin should date Blackfire to get back? That's not in character either ((eew)) and if he did that ROBIN would be the tramp, and Starfire isn't because she's in lovvvvve with Red X! Dude that's the opposite of being a tramp! Quit with the double standards kthx take your hatin ass sumwhere else cuz you're just pissy over a fanfic and there's like a million robstar ones and if you can't keep your manners in check you need to chill and quit talking to grownups as if you were one. You throwin a fit dawg, its not a good look.

AAAAAAAAAAARGHHHH! I feel as if you deserve an explanation about the scream, when i read fanfiction i read it on my ipod. whenever there is wifi available i quickly copy any chapters and then paste them as my notes. (right now i have 446 notes, all of them fanfic stories, most of them yours) However it actually takes some time to copy and paste a lot of chapters and my mum doesnt turn on her wifi for long so i take what i can get. I finished reading this chapter and i did not get any wifi access for 5 hours, because of that i had many pent up emotions. My reading methods also explain why i do not review stories much.
Anyway, great chapter!

oh. my. GOD! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN! Why did my emails not notify me about a new story from my favourite author!
| Guest 1/21/13 . chapter 10
Wow, Starfire falling in love with Red X is terrible enough, but sleeping with him too?! Robin should totally start dating Blackfire in order to get back at this little tramp...no seriously, go to Hell, Starfire. I hope someone hurts you as badly as you have hurt Robin!
| Millipedes R Awesome 1/20/13 . chapter 21
This was an AMAZING story. I'm Star/Rob all the way, but I have to admit, I'm starting to like Star/Red X, too. At least, the way you do it. I love the way he grew as a character. Everything finally makes sense. Everything. I like the way you wrapped things up. You kept me on my toes the entire time; I never knew what to expect. You are a great writer. I wish I could be half as good as you are. I'm sorry about your brother and I'm glad things at home are settling down. ;) I wish you all the best.
Please write more like this! :)

You're right, that "Did you even see any of those episodes?" comment was uncalled for. I was just irritated with the way the chapter was written. If that comment truly did offend you, I would like to give a heartfelt apology. Sometimes I can be a jerk. While I still disagree with what was written in your story, I don't want to be overly rude and start any kind of trouble, so I once again apologize for making that comment.
