Quinn Taxon chapter 11 . 8/23
The story is great. The characters are so complex and the author draw such a complex psychogram of each. They are not only Gargoyle-ish angry and triggered when it comes to Demona but truly hurt on so many levels (I personally saw this especially in the 9th chapter with Lex and Broadway.) I think what I liked the most was Angela - and already in the first chapter. That she is not the nice, sweet thing (a model of femininity that I also don't like as you can see in my oneshot), but has grown through the betrayal by her mother. Not in a beautiful ideal-world way but much closer to reality. She does not act like a naive, forgiving princess. She is suspicious, reserved and although she doesn't doubt that Demona feels a certain degree of love for her, they both know that they are basically strangers to each other and don't expect a happy ending. This is how I think children react much more often to having their illusions about their parents shattered.
I was scared by the manipulation of Demona's body (or even worse, her brain) in the end. But it was necessary and a good solution because no one around her is naive. Everyone is beyond that.
And Demona in her world and life weariness was just heartbreaking.
I almost cried over her new name. I didn't see that coming, that she would be " gifted" with a new one. And I never realized that the name Demona was not only meant respectfully by Mac Beth but (perhaps without him ever realizing it) was something he stigmatized her with. Something people did to her, the author called it. Like a self-fulfilling prophecy. Gives u a lot to think about.
So thank you!

dondena chapter 4 . 4/18
There were never any stories of Brooklyn's generation growing up in the clan of the flashbacks in the shows. Reading them in stories is the best we can get. I'm sure Brooklyn would remember more times of Demona being a much kinder type.
If the princess hadn't been threatened by gargoyles growing up and showed more of their positive qualities growing up, maybe she wouldn't have hated them.
Fortuna chapter 11 . 12/7/2022
That was an excellent story. I do hope you might consider doing a follow-up story to it.
James Birdsong chapter 11 . 8/25/2022
Good story of course.
emyy250 chapter 11 . 8/15/2022
Good story. Kinda surprised that she renamed herself. I probably should have guessed that the last enemy was her.
emyy250 chapter 8 . 8/3/2022
Good chapter. I hope Angela gets Demona to trust her.
