I don't understand why this doesn't have more reviews, it's extremely well written. On another note, what the actual fuck?! Is Vergil going to kill him? I totally didn't see that coming.

Hello!
I hope you are feeling better, best wishes for a quick recovery.
Please tell me you didn't kill him. Dante will be heartbroken if you did and so will I.

I really like those time-windows to Eva and Modeus' friendship.

I'll be looking forward to reading the next chapter.

Greetings!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this, but I was intrigued to finally find a fic about Modeus. While I wasn't a huge fan of the anime, he was practically the only interesting character introduced. That episode had a great set-up, and then... it was a huge let-down. I mean, why couldn't they have kept this awesome character around longer? Especially with all the weird tension his presence created for Dante; they could have at least had Dante ask about his father. But anyway, that's a rant for another day. I really enjoyed reading your story, and I hope to read more of it! Your writing is clear and thoughtful, and I love how you've developed Modeus into a fully-fledged character. You've kept him interesting and consistent, and he fits into the story-verse. If I had to complain about anything, it would be Vergil drinking soda. That was jarring, lol. But other than that (and that's so minor, just ignore me, haha), I really like this. Keep up that great work!

What the hell...? Why did Vergil hurt Modeus? (god, please, I hope he didn't kill him!)
Dante is gonna flip... damn...
Anyway, thanks for updating! Take care and good luck!

Oh, wow... I can understand why Modeus got so overprotective with the babies... also, he is so sweet and caring; I'm loving him more with each episode XD
Will he be the one to execute the midwife? mh... I hope people will understand and never try to hurt the babies...
Take care and good luck!

Another lovely and tear-inducing episode... I'm glad Vergil and Dante didn't start figthing; also, what was that, about something coming to get Modeus...? problems arise, I see...
Thanks for updating! Take care and good luck!
SirenaLoreley chapter 11 . 2/5/2015
This was such a sweet episode... but in the end I was crying just like Modeus...
I loved it.
Take care and good luck!
SirenaLoreley chapter 10 . 1/27/2015
This was such a sweet chapter... but with a bitter end, somewhat. I guess it was heartbreaking for both of them (Sparda and Eva), to know he had to go to war, and that their offspring could be in mortal danger every day...
I wonder, though... where was Modeus when the tragedy happened...?
Take care and good luck!
SirenaLoreley chapter 9 . 1/27/2015
This was a lovely and somewhat sad episode (minus the action part, in the grocery store). I hope Trish doesn't make Modeus want to leave...
take care and good luck!
SirenaLoreley chapter 8 . 1/15/2015
Wow; seems like not everything is 'nice' on their relationship... I wonder if Modeus must be fighting the urge to kill Dante most of the time, and now that he has his real demon form the need is unbearable... then again, it's also probably the demonic need of mate and dominate...
Also, a lot of things were said tonight... Modeus even talked about Eva for a second and that second was enough for Dante to get startled... mh...
Thanks for updating! I'm loving this more and more with each passing episode...
Take care and good luck!
SirenaLoreley chapter 7 . 1/14/2015
Damn, this was an awesome battle scene! also, it's surprising to know Modeus have known Dante even before he was born...
take care and good luck!

I really admire you writing a story about such a wasted character. It's a risky move, but your story pulls it off. You characterizations are spot on, and your chapters are just perfect - not too long, no padding, not too short.

PS: If your talking about Lady's rocket launcher, it's actually named Kalina-Ann after her dead mother.
SirenaLoreley chapter 6 . 1/9/2015
I was scared for a second, but strangely Lady's intromission was a lucky strike... Dante left everything slide (or maybe he really wants Modeus, eh...?) and now... they are more than content together! Lovely!
Anyway, I hope things will go smoothly... but, who knows!
Thanks for updating! Take care and good luck!

This is pretty good so far. For such a minor character, you seem to have given Modeus an interesting personality, with him trying to accept his brother's death, while hiding his grief simultaneously. I was actually looking for a Modeus fic recently, though this is probably one of very few. Now it's a minor, pedantic thing to point out, but Patty's last name is actually spelled Lowell (although it doesn't sound like it). I really enjoy that you are involving Patty. I find her extremely endearing somehow.

Modeus's behavior, while I'm guessing completely intentional, at the beginning of chapter 5 was slightly off putting. It did show his outrage, but I would think Modeus would be colder, more scorning than belligerent and hostile. I could see him using swear words, but I think he would rather silently damn the driver than tell him off in the manner he did, even while drunk. Apologies if I misunderstood that scene.

The writing is mostly strong grammar-wise, however I do notice some mistakes, mainly involving 'to' in place of 'too', missing comma (after dependent clauses in complex sentences), and a few mix ups with 'your' and 'you're'. I also see you use many fragments, I assume for emphasis, such as with

"Bending over Dante's head and whispering into his ear." (Chapter 5) and

"Smiling softly when she ran up to him." (Chapter 4).

While not really incorrect, it makes the writing sound stilted. You can use em dashes (— or -) to fix it or try combining sentences for more complex writing. In other cases, just using a comma instead of making a fragment is appropriate, along with other ways to join the thoughts more fluidly.

So for the first example you could write:

"Modeus actually froze for a second when he heard it, but he let it pass. He bent over Dante's head and whispered into his ear—whispering the words so the hunter could hear him, but so softly he had to be quiet in order to catch them:

'Esta sinome, Alstader.'"

The colon is simply a stylistic choice, but you get the idea.

Anyhow, I hope to see where this goes. I'd actually like if this keeps in mind that Modeus's skull (and therefore death), is required for the summoning of Abigail, which would make for a compelling conflict. Whatever you end up doing, I'm sure it'll work.
SirenaLoreley chapter 5 . 1/8/2015
...wow... just WOW...
It's been a long time since I've read such an amazing sex scene. So full of passion, so fantastically described! Also, I liked that it was Modeus the one on top (he is older AND a demon lord, after all).
Thanks for updating so fast! Take care and good luck!
Ps: ...those words... do they mean something, really?
