Break This Spell626 chapter 6 . 2/27/2015
Um, what? This is really picking up pace now. I've been enjoying it, but this chapter has really gotten me into it.

Yay for kinda-cutely-consensual sex? I kind of feel like Combeferre was the one who was coerced this time, which has completely messed up my intended structure for this review. I'm so pleased with this story though. Even though I'm still fairly clueless as to what's happening most of the time, I really am enjoying it. Also, Ireland got a shout-out in this piece. Go Ireland. I LOVE Bahorel in this. Oh my God, he's so cute, almost like a mother hen, which is such a contrast and I approve highly. Feuilly is making me upset though, he's just so noble. Obviously the focus has been on Les Amis since Philadelphia, but I find the mentions of their actual work so great as well. The bit about the children had me tearing up just a little there, not going to lie. R's injury though. Oh my God. I remember thinking that his voice had to be different during previous chapters, but I didn't actually cop the extent to which he didn't use it. (another gloriously incoherent sentence) In my defence, he's mainly been talking to Enjolras or Prouvaire, but it's just never come up, has it? It's a sign of good writing, I think. The clues were obviously there, but not so blatant that everyone just knew it instinctively. There was some incident a few chapters ago where Enjolras says "me" and someone was confused as to who said it. I remember thinking that was quite silly, but it's making sense now. I think this is the first time you've explicitly said R uses a notebook, so I shouldn't feel too silly, should I? Enough on that, the actual injury is horrific. Very well described. And finally the fact Courfeyrac is saying goodbye is enough to make me cry. I need him fixed! Kisses
PunchyTheSecond chapter 4 . 8/23/2014
Well, you’re certainly not spelling out anything for us! When I first read this, after reading the last line of the first chapter, I remember staring at the screen going “What the hell happened in Philadelphia!?”. Because you’ve been doing that thing where you don’t update, and I was away, I had to read through the previous chapters before I finished this review, and I was genuinely thinking the same thing - even though I know a bit more of what’s happened now!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am not liking Combeferre in this YET. He seems so vicious, like he’ll do anything for The Cause, which is a huge change from the gentle soul I normally imagine. I think the line about how he hadn’t meant to work in the dark is fabulous, because it’s METAPHORICAL. That’s beautiful. And you know how much I love Courfeyrac and I just don’t think Combeferre’s tears afterwards justify what he’s doing. Every time I read over it I think the same! Is there a reason R seems to be paying him a really huge amount of attention? Or am I just reading too much into the situation?
And Jean Prouvaire. Oh my goodness. He kind of reminds me of Mercutio from Romeo and Juliet - who. Despite being all jokey and everything has a really dark side he tries to keep hidden. It’s like Jean Prouvaire has just fully embraced that part of him. As you said earlier, we’re on JP-Level Extreme here, yes? The way he uses sex with Grantaire makes me want to slap him - he’s so wildly OOC. But it does work, to be fair. And having Prouvaire as an antagonist (hopefully) means Courfeyrac doesn’t need as much angst…right?! Also, I’m a bit confused about the “brain hacker” thing. Is that the correct way to describe it, or is it something else? The term “psychic” is rather vague!
I HATE the idea that there’s a mole in the group. I’m hoping there’s not, because in my head, Les Amis are the most unbreakable team. I think the name Montparnasse was mentioned, so I could live with him being the traitor. But in this crazy world, who knows? ONLY YOU!
I’m finally starting to see how in control Courfeyrac is in every OTHER aspect of his life. The contrast is ridiculously bittersweet. I just want him to be happy! What happened to him is horrific though. The very idea of having your mind smothered like that makes me feel a little (a lot) sick. The poor thing. It’s a wonder he’s so in command, considering. This is probably a really stupid question, but was Courfeyrac attacked by Montparnasse, and then Prouvaire? The fact it was relived through Enjolras’ POV just messed me up entirely. That was a very poetic description of rape, by the way. Weird comment, but there you have it.
WHAT IS FEUILLY DOING?! Enjolras and R are a thing, aren’t they? They’re an actual thing and Feuilly is not part of it! Make him stop! Why the angst, Renee, why?
Also, I need an explanation about Enjolras is doing with his mind. I know it’s supposed to be confusing and all, but my head is so so sore from trying to figure it out!
And is that the reason R is now R? Because that’s sweet and screwed up in equal measures!
So, to conclude, this is dark. Very dark. But I am enjoying it. It’s taken me a while, I wasn’t sure, but it is very well written, so I will just run with it. Kisses

Well this chapter explains a whole lot. But I'm still really confused about R. Can he not physically speak and is that linked to why he only goes by R now?

It's me, I'm just too lazy to sign in!
I've got a long review stored on my desktop, and I will send you it the minute you update one of your stories! It's a good one, you know you want to read it! ;)
However, I WILL tell you that I approve highly of this story, and am waiting eagerly to see what's going to happen. Kisses

Alright I am very, very confused, but equally intrigued. This seems like it has a lot of potential to be really god so you definitely should not abandon it.
PunchyTheSecond chapter 2 . 1/26/2014
Wow. This is...pretty dark. I'm not quite sure how to feel about any of the characters. Jehan and Combeferre struck me as downright nasty. I'm sure the politics of it all will be explained soon, but the suspense (despite working really well) has made two characters I normally adore reaaally unsavoury. R and Enjolras, I like what they've been doing so far, though I'm SUPER worried about them. Seriously, what happened in Philadelphia?! And Courfeyrac. I have no words for him. He seemed to be in control in the prologue, and then...THAT happened. I'm just so confused over this...
I'm liking the setting so far - fair play for creating this creepy world, but I don't understand what's happening yet! Hurry up and fill us in! Kisses
