| loxotic chapter 19 . 2/8
I realize it's been nearly eight years since this was last updated and you've probably abandoned it entirely. But in the slim chance that you check these reviews, author, I just want to let you know that this is legitimately one of my favorite pieces of fiction I've ever read, fanfic or no. I've read it in its entirety three times at this point and I'm just as infatuated with the narrative and characterizations and especially your prose as I was on the first go. You write Grievous the best out of any fanfiction author I've seen and nothing I've read since has done as much justice to my favorite SW character as you did. It makes me incredibly sad that I'll probably never get to see this finished, but thank you so so much for what you -have- done. 10/10 will binge read again.

Absolutely incredible story, best fanfiction I have ever read in my life. Please continue! This story is just beautiful, and so is the way you write!

You made me pity a ruthless, uncompromising, terrifying warlord. You made me pity the Star Wars version of Ghengis Khan, complete with his endless horde and many wives. I'm actual impressed!

this is probably my favourite fanfic atm, you do realise that when you go on filters and put general grievous in and set it to most favourited. yours is the top one. thus I think a lot of us would be greatly thrilled if you were to continue with your amazing work.

| SpawnofAnarion chapter 19 . 8/22/2016
I must say, this is an absolutely amazing fic-any chance you could be persuaded to finish it? I'd be perfectly willing to provide a bribe of some kind ;)
Seriously though, amazing work! Thank you so much for writing this and sharing it with us.

If you ever find the time I think you should continue this. this is well written and its believable, which that is almost always at the top of my list when I look for stories to read.

man this story is phenomenal I just wish it was still active
| Reducto chapter 19 . 2/6/2016
Hi, I started reading this when you published the first chapter- I know it has been many years but I still hold hope that one day it will be updated. :) That would be amazing! Excellent story, excellent writing.

I adore your writing style- I simply adore it! It's so far outside the common styles I find when browsing fanfiction, and I love it 100%. Your way of dispensing information to the readers is great - you switch naturally between any and all POV's without any weird or ungainly lead-ins, and you keep secrets too while you use someone's POV.
I like the gradual change in Grievous as well, it's one of the best slow-character changes I can remember seeing. Time passes, you do not waste time on things that do not deserve their time, and you do not belittle Grievous as a character by having him change his mind immediately and directly.
If I were to have minor critiques, they would be small technicalities- such as how all of Lissa's improvements work immediately without mistake, error or any unforseen effect. It is not at all a big problem. The only other thing that coems to mind right now is that Lissa is very accepting of her situation and the General's behaviour towards her. I can see that familiarity with a situation takes the edge off atrocities, but she is not really seen or noted to mourn or actively dislike Grievous where she has all the reasons to. Or I suppose- she might dislike Grievous, but she treats him very kindly for someone that treated her atrociously for long periods of time on end.
Those minor complaints do nothing to curb my utter enjoyment of your story! I know it is unlikely to be finished, so I will instead treasure what you have posted thus far, and check for your other stories! I loved this!

Brilliant story! Heimchen, I wish to urgently PM you but it seems I can not. It's regarding this story and my right to use your material for something specific. I do hope you see this comment.
Plus, I'd like to see more Star Wars stories like this, since it's golden. :)

Why are the best stories always the unfinished ones?! If you are out there, please finish this. It's amazing! And the plot is really starting to take off!
| Paragrin chapter 19 . 6/4/2014
More, please? I love this.
| Celgress chapter 19 . 4/4/2014
One of the absolute best, bar none, fanfiction stories ever. Without hyperbole I enjoyed reading this story more than nearly all others I've found here. I hope someday you'll continue updating it. So, any plans on finishing it anytime soon?
| Cooljoe64 chapter 19 . 9/24/2013
So no more updating? Shame, really liked this story
