It's about time I reviewed one of your stories. All of your stuff that I've read so far is amazing, you are a really talented writer. And I'm super excited that you included some Dutch in this one (since I'm Dutch and it's a small country, so I'm always stupidly excited when it is included in a story/series/film/etc.). Do you know the language? Though some of the Dutch words seemed google-translated. Like 'nonkel' is more Belgian than Dutch I think. Anyway, if you are still working on this and want to include some more Dutch, feel free to message me. I'd gladly translate for you if you want, and in any case, I am looking forward to reading the next chapter(s) of this addicting story of yours.

Okay so I've prob read this chapter a 100 times and wow... when you reread earlier chapters it helps put things into perspective and explain the gaps especially with Karel who is evolving into an unusually sympathetic/tragic character (I guess in a way Yami didnt fall far from the tree...though he fits your more typical tragic and relatable character).
Structurally I didnt see the flashbacks coming and interesting that we got two of the most traumatic experiences when the romantic view of your life flashing before your eyes is the happy memories. Though these were bittersweet with Yami meeting his mother and Bakura and deciding to live and fight. It was really symbolic of how the narrative is transforming! Ah I just loved it and ate it all up as usual lol! The kiss at the end made it just perfect!
I cant decide if the DVD evidence means Yami is finally safe or if Yevgeny is going to pull an Alphonse and escape/come after him again... time will tell. As always eagerly awaiting the next instalment :D

I liked how Yami as re-living two of his life changing events, meeting his mother and Bakura as he hovered between life and death in ICU. It was touch and go there for a while.
He is like a cat with nine lives!
It's a little too late for his father to start feeling guilt - the damage has been done. But I hope theey can reconcile.

oh god...well that took a wild turn... It was so good to see Kaiba and Yami finally getting somewhere, Yami fighting his fears and Seto being so patient and caring. And then worst happens...wow... he should have right out shot Arik when he came up...poor Yami, he has to suffer so much... please take good care of him, Seto.
Curious to see how they'll all get out of this mess... give them a little bit of bliss q_q
It was a very thrilling chapter again. Well done.

The K9 officer oath made me want to cry!
Seto is so sweet and stubborn and wonderfully patient and protective. He matches Yami so well.
Poor Bakura! I really hope Yami gets his satisfaction in some kind of sweet revenge! He's been through so much! Please let him put a bullet in Arik's head or throw him off a bridge or something!

Hannibal getting a bath, reminded me of when we used to bath our dog, Rex. It made me laugh, especially when Hannibal rubbed himself dry on Bakura's bed! It's a sad to think that Bakura did not get to see it! He would have been furious. It was a big shock when Bakura was murdered.
I'm pretty concerned for Yami. Poor guy is a beaten up wreck already, without further punishment. With that amount of tissue damage the lower part of the limb will die from lack of blood reaching it! Never mind the knackered femur. If he doesn't bleed to death, he will be lucky not to lose his leg.
How many more shocks do you have in store for us?

...HOLY SHIT... Its like 5 in the morning ...and just wow. Did not see ANY of this chapter coming. The way the tone shifts half way through to the brutality and Bakura... I like need the next chapter now to help me process this o_0 Where the heck do they all go from here?! Brilliantly executed but has totally shocked me to the core!
Please update soon I need to know what happens or I might not ever sleep again! #Hooked

First of all sorry for the late review...life has been somewhat hectic though I am glad yours has returned to some normalcy in time for xmas!
Secondly...'iLegend'... I sooo hope you meant me! I may have to steal that name cause its epic pahahahaha I was eager...so much so when I saw the email I immediately opened the fic and was then late for work! But who the hell cares this was FAR more important!
Loved Loved Loved the chapter ...the action begins! More questions were answered and more were raised. Was interesting to learn about the product and the Bratvas intentions. Though I second another review 'Karel was?' I took that initially to mean his previous actions were atrocious but could it mean hes now dead? I doubt it as Yevgeny is the type to want to make Karel squirm with his success as the man made him wait for so many years. My other '?' moment was the mention of Yami's surgery wound the year before? Dear lord he broke his leg at 12, 15 and 16? Ouch! What did he do that time?!
Also a moment of 'SQUEEEEEEEEEE' for the moment of comfort Seto and Yami took with each other after capturing the intruders! Im sure Seto needed that to calm down and get reassurance as much as Yami did. Plus how nice for Yami to have someone whos protective of him but believes in his abilities for a change!...well sides from Bakura :)
That reveal though at the end...horrifying but again goes a long ways to explaining why Yami is/was the way he is in the present tense. The sick part of me wants to know more...what happened that night at the party and how did Yami escape from his cell without notice?
*breathes deeply* Ive no idea if these ramblings even make sense to you Yami Neferbre... these are my rambled thoughts after reprocessing the chapter...Heres where I now shamelessly beg... Pwetty please with a Yami on top can we have another chapter soon? It is my birthday and christmas soon! ;)
But if we dont here from you before then have a very merry christmas and a happy new year! xxx

woah, this was so intense and thrilling... the gang raiding the vaults was so cool and once again we've got to see what a great character Yami is. YamiHanni are the perfect team. I'm really glad everything went fine and nothing happened to Yami or Kaiba. Then again, Kaiba, you could make yourself a bit more usefulD *shoves Kaiba over to hug Yami*
The ending part, ohhh man. Great way of looking back at these happenings by having the villains wife look at video footage. Videos. That bastards filmed everything... I hope she does the right (a good) thing.
Looking forward to the next chapter! Thanks again for writing this amazing fic *heart*

Definitely was worth the wait! From the first chapter to this newest one, my attention was held, lol. I've read some of your other works and fell in love with them but this? This tops as my favorite one. Awesome job with this chapter, and I look forward to reading the next one!

Intense action. Some nice take downs by Yami and Hannibal. Still worried that the gang have managed to get away with enough of the drug to be useful to them though.
I noticed Sasha said 'was' when referring to Karel! Does that mean they have killed him?
So now Annushka knows what a sick *uck she is married to. I wonder what her decision is?
Poor Yami, I just want to cuddle him.

I cannot describe how stupid excited i was to get the update notice!
This so exciting! Like an episode from a tv show or something.
Please keep up the good work. I can hardly wait to see what happens next!

Really enjoying the story so far.
Looking forward to reading more.

hnnngh, ending when it's most thrilling... *bites nails*
Your writing is really nice to read, the characters are interesting and especially the scenes between Seto and Yami were great. I'm glad they get along so well now and Yami finally has the chance to heal.
I'm looking forward to reading more of this story

Gosh! You have had an eventful time of it! The concussion sounds horrible. I hope you are feeling much better.
Yugi is really cool in this. I just loved how his daughter has him wrapped around her finger. I did get to thinking that him giving into her, might just have put her in danger of being kidnapped. Especially when Yami was concerned that his family might be in danger if they arrested Yevgeny.
Finding out about the band Yami was in was another interesting twist. It was amusing that Yugi liked their music and had no idea his cousin was the singer!
The plot seemed to move quite a lot in this chapter. Maybe they should push Arik into changing sides as he might be their key to nailing the Pakhan. I wonder what will happen to those poor kids inside the container?
