hahah the only thing i can say about this is good job.
only flaw ive seen is that you dont have seen breaks, try to use things such as: (* or ) to break the scenes. Cos not having scene breaks totally confuses the reader.
heheh it is highly advisable to have a playlist of all four discs of ff8 soundtrack ready, if your going to read this story. i was trying to find the seifer almasy song but i came up with this site.

I was planning on submitting a review when I finished this, but... I suppose I figure I have to say something. For one, I'll tell you what I hope countless others told you - this story is fantastic and I love it. I'm actually pretty glad that I found it just a week ago (ish), so that I didn't have to wait for the updates. A few times, though, I wanted to stop reading it. But I can't. This is why I think Fire and Ice is amazing, even if I haven't finished it yet: it scares me, but I can't stop. You've made the characters realistic enough to be believed, to be loved and hated, to be cheered and jeered, and you wrote it so that it's impossible not to see it through 'till the end. Given the chance to critique this, I have to say that I would never dream of touching a single letter of this.
In short, if you did own Square Enix, they'd be raking in some serious cash with your ideas. I can't wait to finish this story... even if I'm not sure I'm going to like the ending. Either way, I'll still love it. It's simply that good. Thanks forever for writing this.

I don't know what else to say. It's a story that's got the magnitude of a true Final Fantasy game, without all that "you're dead, restart?" crap. _
I love your writing, the balance of descriptions with the actions and speech. Hell, I love every part.

This stort was absolutly amazing. I spent three hours reading the entire thing. I hope to be reading more from you. :) Check out my SeiferxQuistis story when I get it finished, eh?

i told myself i'll post my review after i've read the whole story. i'm the type who reads completed fanfics; i would search and read works that are already completed, and would review them when i've finished reading them. needless to say, i've decided to deviate from my normal practice...and here i am.
first off, the pairing. i didn't doubt for a moment that seif-tis would work. they are just polar opposites (hence your appropriately titled fanfic). i'm glad someone like you did justice to this very plausible pairing. you stayed true to the characters especially seifer's, and i really appreciate that. other people would have written him as a mushy buffoon when he falls in love. you didn't, however (hurray).
second, the story. wow. although some were cliched (but you made them work nevertheless, without being corny), you defied convention in others.i hate prdeictability, and your story certainly kept me guessing as to what will happen next.
third, the technicalities. i have one burning question to ask: are you a doctor? heh. i am impressed especially at how well you integrated the medine part of the ffvi world with real medicine. rather amused at how well it worked out, particularly when you mentioned hemopneumothorax. didn't mention however that cid and quistis, whose prognoses were rather poor, are intubated and hooked to a mechanical ventilator, but i assumed that one of the wires/cords mentioned there refers to them. then again, you were equally as adept in describing the cyberworld and the seed militia, so i guess you're just wonderfully and unusually smart.
okay, those are my words of tribute. i'm saving the gripes for last. heh. constructive criticism, you know. and all of it has to do with grammar...
first, i don't blame you, it's a common mistake. apostrophe-s or s-apostrophe is used to denote possession (e.g. quistis' boyfriend is coming over for dinner). it can also be used as a contraction to "is" or "was" (e.g. quistis' boyfriend's coming over for dinner). it is NEVER used for plural forms (e.g. zell ate a dozen hotdog's). so when you say "iris" in plural form (which you tended to mention a lot), it should be irises, NOT iris'.
second, people (i also noticed that it includes you) always write "unphased" when they mean "unfazed". i urge you to go look it up in the dictionary and see if you can find such a word, i.e., "unphase". or better yet, look up the rootwords (phase vs faze), and see the difference.
as i haven't finished reading the story, that's my review for now (as if i haven't said a lot already). i hope that when i finish reading fire and ice, you'd have finished the sequel already (yeah, right. wishful thinking on my part, heh). God Bless you and more power. i'll be reading more of your works-when they're completed though. it isn't fun waiting for an author to update...then they never do, even three to five years after (sob).

well, honestly i preferred the love-in-the-snow scenario from before...even though it does seem ridiculous. This new revised scene is fine, but i know you can revise it better-some minor errors need to be corrected...and generally, it seemed rushed in the beginning when Seifer first encounters Quistis...tighten that scene. And there seems to be a lack of passion in this scene than the one you had before...but of course the editing is all up to you. to sum it all up, i prefer the old scene to this new one.

Altol...I LOVE YOU! THERE IS TOO MUCH JOY AND GRATITUDE IN MY HEART RIGHT NOW TO PROPERLY EXPRESS HOW MUCH I LOVE FIRE AND ICE AND GRATEFUL I AM FOR YOU TO HAVE WRITTEN IT! I've loved FFVI since it came out, but you have deepened that love a thousand plus fold! if i didn't have the worlds biggest migrane right now i would be rolling on the floor squeeking about love and such (i was to a tiny extent about seven minutes ago but that only hurt my head more so i had to rant at my brother...). any way...THANK YOU SO MUCH! this is going to sound really cheesy but it must be said...thank you for enriching my life. I LOVE YOU!

This is one of the best fics I've ever read in One of the best in FFvi category. The best Seifer x Quistis pairing fic. That makes you one hella of an author.
The lines made me laugh. Especially when Xu is present. I almost never noticed her when I was playing the game but after reading your fic, she becomes one of my favorite character.
Even your own characters, I almost wished they are actually in the game especially Arya, the spy. I didnt see that one coming, at all.
Im not particularly a Seifer x Quistis fan, but when I saw the number of reviews of your fic, I thought I should read this. Im glad I did.
I am really astounded how you write this. It's to the level that can be published. The humor, technicalities, virus systems, medical terms [even the ones you made up], even the trial dialogues are all magnificent.
Wow this must be the longest review I've ever written and I want to praise you more and describe how you wrote the fic in my observation but I dont know how.
So I'll just wish and hope that you will write more fics like this and I'll be able to read them all.
Thanks for sharing.

I loved the end of this chapter. Another perfect close.
…Poor leadership qualities..Instructor 14 lacks a basic lack of control and distance with her pupils…..
Maybe you wrote it this way cause she's tired and her thoughts are hazy but the line doesn't make sense.
