Absolutely brilliant story. I realise it's been quite a number of years since this was written but I think think it's worth leaving a review for such decent work. I loved the story, I liked that everything with others continued to develop even with the focus being Elisabeth's and Emma's relationship, I feel like I didn't miss out on anything.
I love the way you wrote Emma Frost, she is honestly one of my favourite characters from the X-Men series. I've always liked the way she just doesn't compromise on her beliefs, she doesn't shift in attitude because she becomes a 'good guy', the only thing that changes is her agenda. I'm happy that aspect of her was kept in this story while still showing she is in fact human.
Very well written, excellent story. I don't really know what else to say. *Throws loads of praise onto the work* is the easiest way to sum it up.

Wow! Simply wow! You managed to take a large chunk of canon, turn it on its head, yet still came out with an AU that bore a decent resemblance to the mainstream universe. At the same time, you had two characters with very little shared history, and gave them a strong (if fast) romance born out of strong similarities in history and heart, all while keeping them true to their basic, canon personalities. The only really surprising relationship you establish was Kitty's sudden tryst with Mystique at the end; I suppose that I can understand why, at least on Mystique's end... on the other hand, Ororo's fury when she hears about it... probably a good thing she'll be far away from the mansion.
Fantastic epic! Please keep up the great work!

I like your take on Magik (Illyana Rasputin). The common mistake to make on that character is to assume she's an anti-hero but that's not true. She's a girl who has a desire to do good despite going through "demonic possessed" in the past.

This was a hell of a story. I sawy Goodddaaamm! Perfect.

Damn and here I thought X-Men were mostly do-gooders who went to great lengths to avoid casualties if at all possible. Guess not! Betsy gutted all those mercs in fashion! It was pretty bad ass and very ruthless. I'm not really up on X-men but .. dat was sweet.

Well damn.. that was some diary entry. I'm glad Emma will be ok! I was always sad Mystique lost her lover and like her whole family. Out of all the X-Men for some reason her story always stands out to me as a particularly tragedy filled and shitty one. Maybe because it doesnt have to do with body snatching and alien mind wipes and god possession or whatever. Anyway lovin the story, so happy i found it! -)

I really liked wolverine in this chapter. Totally had Betsy's number and calling her out on her attraction to Emma. I think the whole scene with him going into the danger room and everything that happened until the end was clever, well written and halarious. I'm very much enjoying your story. It seems that the only ones who can ever get close to Emma are telepaths.. that's like the only way to ever get through her walls, for some reason have someone be able to get through all that. 'Lovin it. :) :D

Intense. Super Intense.

This is perhaps the first fic that led me to ship Emma/Betsy.
I loved how in-depth you went when it came to detail. You had me on the edge of my seat for more than a few chapters, so when it finally reached the end, it was like I could breathe freely again. The tension you're able to evoke from a reader is just absolutely amazing, and I was glad that I was there for the ride!
I'm still a bit saddened that my favorite character Tessa/Sage didn't get the ending that I felt she deserved. Even if she were on the opposing side, I almost wanted her to see her victorious and free. Then again, she also went up against Mystique, who is also one of my favorites. Choosing a winner from that type of fight was difficult all the way through. Still, no matter who would've won, I probably wouldn't have been too happy to begin with. I'm still hoping that you'll continue one day with the sequel of this.
I'm not sure if you still write fics anymore, but you're still one of my favorite authors from the X-Men fandom. It was an absolute honor to read your work.

This was incredible! I've just read it in pretty much one go and I was amazed by the detailed plot and characterisation. Whilst I'm unfamiliar with some of the characters, your portrayal of them made me love them as much as I did the ones I knew.
This is easily one of my favourite fanfics of all time!
