|Reviews for A Shade Of Gray|
| SpacemanSpiff chapter 6 . 2/24
So I've been away from the site for some time, but I was recently flipping through some old stories that I had reviewed long ago and I saw that your story had been updated. What a pleasant surprise it was! I remember reading this story back then and enjoying it greatly, and I must say that reading it again was just as much a pleasure. Getting to read the two chapters you have uploaded since then was really nice, and I hope that, like me, you're finding time to come back to writing here.
You have a really excellent and novel premise here that I think could make for a wonderful story. The last chapter, in particular, was quite beautiful, and I think you have a real knack for storytelling. Rydia's character seemed soft and vulnerable, with a hint of lurking darkness there at the end, which I thought was really well done.
I do hope that you continue this story. It's nice to know that some of my contemporaries from the good ol' days might still be around here. I look forward to any possible updates you might be able to offer.

I became your instant fan! XD

This is a good story, but so sad.
| Grand Old Man chapter 1 . 5/3/2005
Top marks for this one which is a fresh take on one of my very favorite characters. Youve got a great writing style that really adds a lot to the story. Hope this one sees it through to completion!

I have no clue what FFIV is about, but the story's definitely cool. Is the extreme suspense really necessary? Meh, w/e, really neat though, pal, the letters are an incredible touch.

hooray, i remember this one. i'm so intrigued because this story is nothing like anything out there. nobody's done a story on this point of view... i'm excited.
| Ice on Fire chapter 3 . 2/10/2005
Good to see the most underrated character in FFIV get her chance to shine. Even better to see it done so well.
I hope this is one that's going to be around for the long haul.
| Snow Duchess chapter 1 . 1/29/2005
I like it. Good portrayal of Rosa. I'm looking forward to further chapters.
| Laziness Incarnate chapter 3 . 1/26/2005
A very intriguing story! I especially liked the prologue and the correspondences at the beginning of each chapter. Looking forward to seeing more!
| DTitania chapter 3 . 1/25/2005
Nice that you are still working on this. I have always liked Rosa and she never seemed the damsel in distress to me. It's good to see that she finally gets her own story (and one which hasn't solely to do with her love interests.) From what I've read until now, the story has a very interesting concept, although it breaks my heart that Cecil is dead...
I'm waiting for the next chapter. :)

Well, isn't my face red. That's what I get, I suppose, for reading fanfiction ridiculously late at night, with several windows open. The review below was intended for the FFIV story "Themes of Love", but I somehow managed to put it on my own story, rather than theirs.
My apologies. And go read their story. It's very good.

Oh my goodness. This is an absolutely beautiful story. I'm usually reluctant to read most fics with Kain as a major focus because they usually have the same tired, cliched plot, but you've done a wonderful job with this. I love the feel and pace of your writing. I don't know many that are successful with present tense, and it's perfect here.
| Steve chapter 1 . 11/8/2004
This is very well written and the concept is entertaining.. Keep up the good work.

I am deeply intrigued by this work, as you really don't see many stories such as these. It's quite unique, not only in its selection of characters and storyline, but simply with the way you are writing it. As of now you haven't truly given much to go on with Rosa's character, but since you are planning on making this a lengthy fic I'm sure that will come around. But I think that's also what draws me to the story, just waiting to find out what she will do next and how she is going to react to things around her. The first two chappies were a very interesting introduction to the fic. Also I like the first person narrative pursuit in which your writing this story, which gives a bit more to her character, seeing as she truly is the main focus here. I'm guessing from the first chappie that she'll eventually attempt to bring Cecil back from the dead, although I also take from the second chappie that this boy she has found may become Baron's new prince. Perhaps I read too much into things, but I think your story warrants it. As for titles, I've never been entirely too clever for them, but for a fic like this, where everything is rather shrouded in a mysterious fashion, I'd say go with something simple and ambiguous. Like "Her Story" or something like that. I dunno, it's up to you, but I hope you find a title for it soon. Anyways, great work.

This was highly interesting and well-written. An arresting though very dark & strange look at Rosa's life after the game. I must say it confuses me a little. Maybe all pieces will fall into place if you're planning on continuing this.
