Reviews for Rise and Fall
CryosR chapter 3 . 4/7/2015
I can't believe I never left a review for this story back when I first read it... must have been over a decade ago. I'll touch briefly on a small problem I have with thie story, a bit of an editing error. All the words turn italic and then bold and italic after a certain point. Don't know if that's a slight error with the way this site processes things or something but, but enough nit picking.

This story is just as good as when I first read it years ago and it reminds me why I decided to start writing my own stories. I admit it's a bit hard to grasp Defender's character at first but I think I have an idea now. I love this story and I think it's aged quite wellm still one of the pinnacles of Care Bear Fanfiction, and fanfiction in general, along with "Time of Perils" and "Lucky Seven".

Thank you for writing this story, Phoenix, and for leaving it up for others to enjoy. Now I'm off to bed and then I'll read the rest of these stories.

I used to think that Care Bears was a show for soft-hearted folk. The way you do it, though, makes it intense! I loved it!

I loved this story so much. It really made me cry when I read the last chapter. Ijust get emotional a lot, especially since my grandfather died a few years ago. So I hope to talk to you soon.

This was superb. Hats off to you. I hope you continue with the Defender Bear sagas. I already read the other three and I think they're really great.

Phoenix, I thought your bear looked familiar, which he should, I saw him on the Caring Board. Anyway, I must say this is a GREAT story and I'm glad I found it. Keep writing my friend, Care Bears Forever!
