Vellacora chapter 31 . 12/31/2014
Oh my gosh...

THIS IS AMAZING! I stumbled across this while going through another author's profile and I am so glad I found this fic! All I can really say is holy shit my friend, this is one of the best fanfictions I've ever read. The characters are wonderfully written and how you portray the pain, the agony, and the insanity just gives me goosebumps. The plot and how you created the action and the emotions of everyone is so fantastic I can't stop reading. This is like crack right now and I love everything about it.

But I see you haven't written in a while and this cliffhanger is sort of driving me insane. Please update as soon as you can because I have seen too many beautiful fanfictions abandoned and this fic is seriously too awesome to not complete.

I am still currently blown away about this fic and I think I might go back and re-read. Words cannot describe what I feel right now except that again, I love what you do and please continue!

Wonderfully written and worth the wait. I did recall you making a promise to have Richie and Original Static reunite this chapter which I am mildly disappointed about. Overall though I'm just so happy there was an update at all. I've know about this chapter for awhile, but I held off on reading it due to the fact that if it ended on a cliffhanger it would be months or years before it was resolved. I caved today and read it anyway. It was awesome. Love the characters! Hope to see more someday. Thanks!

Woo, I hope you come back and finish this someday. It's really good. And I want Richie and Virgil to be reunited so badly…and express their undying love for each other ;)
Can't wait for the finale!

I like how you characterized the person they fought as appearing less humanoid as other Bang Babies Static and Gear ever fought before. It places things into perspective of individuals not just gaining new powers but new appearances.

Wow. It look like the battle to save Richie is going to happen soon. I can't wait to see how it goes down. Excellent work on the writing and the plot.

I've kind of given up on giving critical feedback for this story, since I use it as a measurment of how good something is- fanfic or no. So sorry, Valkyrie-Alex, but you're just too good for improvement. At least, as far as I can tell. 'Course, I'm no professional editor, so, ya know.
SO ANYWAY I just wanted to say that Virgil and Static could be allegories for capital 'g' Good and capital 'e' Evil, similar to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde from... you know, the book with those characters.
That is all.
*starts gushing* I mean the way you characterize Richie is so much more interesting than they do on the show! If it had been me writing this story, I would've used Richie's, well, genius, to get him out of the situations. And you could probably do that- but that goes against the rules for Richie's powers. He's a genius, but it has its limits. He has probably read a lot of stuff about psychology, but his powers don't seem to extend to analyzing people and their emotions. If that were the case, you could just write him like Sherlock Holmes and be done with it.
Instead, you manage to walk that fine line between Richie being a genius and Richie being... well, Richie. I've always thought that Richie has a lot of potential as a way to explore situations that nobody will ever find themselves (i.e. I've suddenly gained 2,000 IQ points, what do). How would that change his worldview? You 'explore' this idea in the same way the show does- by showing that it DOESN'T change who he is, really. Richie is still a wise-cracking geek, who's view of the world is pretty optimistic. The most you get to addressing this is in Chapter whatever, where Tech is all "I'm the one with all the statistics running through my head- you guys can be as optimistic as you want, I'm just concentrating on getting you all back here alive."
Theoretically, Richie should have a similar worldview, since he sees the same odds (if not more stark and numerous) as Tech. And yet, his behavior throughout this story is hardly cold and calculating. He could probably find some way to play off of Static's obvious mental instability, if he decided it was important. He could, instead of thinking of a way to get out of there, figure out how to manipulate Static so that he could be safer. But, both because he's a hero and because he's scared as FUCK, Richie doesn't even consider that a possibility. Which is what makes it so powerful that neither versions of him EVER stops fighting against Static- even when they know it could kill them, they keep on fighting.
*deep breath in*
Phew! Well. That. Uh, sorry about that. Just had to say it somewhere, you know how it is.
