atree chapter 42 . 9/10
Loved it, what a beautiful ending. Incredibly ambitious, incredibly well-wrought. Reminds me a lot of Better Then by IsraelBlargh. This is the best iteration of the "Max gets taken by government for her powers" I've ever read. Only thing I'm still confused about is what exactly caused the problems in New York when Max first time-traveled there, how she teleported, why her power stopped working, etc. Minor plot grievance aside, it was wonderful.

Okay so I like to visualize OC’s in fanfics as famous movie and tv actors

So far my cast is...
Director martinet isWalter from breaking bad
Reese isWill Smith
Nikki isMaze from Lucifer
And the British Women (I forget her name) is -Felicity Smoak from Arrow (I know she isn’t British but it fits so well in my head)

Man, time travel is complicated.

Anyway, found your story three days ago or so after I finally finished LiS, and I totally love it. Well, not all about it, to be entirely honest. Not a fan of the ending, I think it would have been better if the story ended pretty much with chapter 38, shortly after they ended up with the Zaibatsu. Would have made it much less complicated, in my opinion.

But then again, that is just what it is. My opinion. This story is still amazing. Take care and stay safe, wherever you are. I'm gonna take a look at the other stories you wrote on this site now.

Finished this a second time. It’s amazing. The only downside is the author relies a little too much on you already being familiar with the game. I get it. It’s a fan fic. But this could be a legit independent book and it would be amazing.

Wow I just finished reading your story... God you really hit some high and low notes in this. Your original characters ended up being very compelling by the end and it was just awful reading about their ultimate bad endings.

You totally made me cry at certain parts of this fic you did a great job evoking my reactions and emotions through out your work. And I think this ending is probably better then just having a basic they ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after ending. I'm glad you ended it the way you did and I still have to reiterate that I think the world building chapters are fine. Chapters 6-12 while not amazing or perfect were still engaging. I didn't feel the urge to just stop reading at any point while reading those chapters. Sure you could go back and re-write them and work that context/content into the story in a different way but I still enjoyed the way you write this piece.

Anyways thank you for sharing your work with us and I'll probably end up checking out your other stories after enjoying this one this much.

Wow... This story is good. I don't know why people wouldn't have liked the worldbuolding you did but thanks for sharing the feels.

(kind of left some stuff out of my earlier rant) What I mean is, the story crescendos to its highest points, and despite the protagonist's best efforts, they don't "win" in the normal sense of the word at the end. It was hard seeing future Max have to go through everything, only to have to cease to exist, but the beautiful, poetic tragedy of it was outstanding. I thought I didn't think I liked it at first, but once I realized how similar it was to Shepard's story, I immediately did a 180. The greater good, so that others may live and be happy. Bravo.

Good lord am I late to the party with this one. I can't believe it took me this many years to search for Life is Strange content, let alone find your story! Though, I must say, it was worth the "wait." This story was absolutely incredible, and I cannot say enough good things about it.

I feel like you kept the character style in line with the game perfectly, and they stayed there the whole way through. The way you wove the game events into your narrative was great, and the new content was exceptional.

The concepts involving time manipulation and terminology, damn I couldn't have said it better myself. The objective vs. subjective age thing, for example, I really loved.

I could go on about the first 38 chapters, because they're just awesome. What I really want to talk about is the last four. You got me real good with the note at the end of 38maybe you posted it on April 1st, I won't know. Now, I won't say the last four are poorly written or thought out, that would be terribly untrue. When I was finished, I had a bevy of emotions, predominantly being impressed at it all, and sad it was over. But I also felt, and I can't find a better word for it, some kind of disappointment (bear with me I'm not here to complain). it was a feeling I hadn't felt in a while, and I eventually realized it was the same feeling some people felt at the end of Mass Effect 3. I know you've written ME content before, and I get the feeling that, whether subconsciously or not, you drew inspiration from the trilogy's ending. Once that occurred to me, I felt much differently about it. I'm "at peace," and I appreciate it so much more.

Long story short, I loved this to pieces. Thank you so much for gifting us with your art.
