It's 'xenothium'. And Raven says 'metrion', not 'metreon'.
| Ultimoto The Great chapter 21 . 4/1/2013
That is one of the best and worst endings I have ever seen! Worst because he did not kill Slade, but best because of the sheer awesomeness of this story! Have i told you this story just earned second place in my HALL OF FAV? Because it is!

Wow...wow...that is the only thing I can say. Wow. This is a wonderful story. I liked how you made Red X have his own little tweaks fears and mistakes. I am not a Red X/Starfire fan though. I am a total X/Rae all the way type gal, yes I say gal. I like Slade in the shows cause he was really smart and he wasn't all loopy like control freak or dr light. And then Red X was introduced to me! Woohoo! Yes I am now a fangirl of two people, Jack Sparrow, and Red X...I feel so disappointed in myself. Ypu did great, off to the sequel!

Your story is amazing, really! But... I dont think an Eagle could carry any of the Titans, exspecially Cyborg, back to the Tower... lol but so far thats the only problem i've seen... :D

A beautifully written little Teen Titans tale, with one of the most amazing anti-heroes as the main character!
Depicting instead of those flawless, selfless hero types that could never really exist in real life. Instead you've created someone who just strolls along the path in between good and bad, light and dark.
A person who is just as selfish as the rest of us, someone who has needs as well!
The character development of Sanza, is good. It's just so nice how you don't just make a story about the Titans and the villains and etc.
You make Sanza your character! And this is his story!
(Interestingly last name is Salazar, relation to Salazar Slytherin?)
Keeping everyone in character!
Also witty dialogue and clever ideas, Red X deciding to be selifish, to be human at the end was really good.
Who would not Red X's legacy to end so quickly?
Seriously, this should be made into a movie or something...

| Cross the Damned Soul chapter 21 . 8/9/2008
two words: YOU ROCK!...Another thing? Do you have any sequels? Beacuse I am so reading it.
| Teen-Titans-Raven chapter 11 . 3/27/2008
Actually, for Catholics, you did a really good job. It is not exact, but many people just say it from their heart. I loved it.

You know, it's funny how he's able to be so agile, even though it was only the suit he stole. Or maybe the suit gives him all those abilities.
It's also funny how good you are at fight scenes. Well, you're better then I'll ever be. I envy in that department.
So, Red X has kidnapped Star? Kinda cliched, but maybe you're different... maybe.
I'm liking this more and more. Haven't come across many good Red X stories.

Considering that you're finished with this and two sequels, and I'm sure other stories... I'm still going to critique this. Chapter... by chapter... by chapter. Because I'm love Red X and, naturally, his "Life and Times."
So be prepared.
Now, before I start, I must say that I sign my reviews. If you don't see a "-maeror" at the end of any certain one, I must have been cut off and would be more than happy to PM you the thing in its proper entirety. Usually, I'm good about checking the reviews page to make sure it got through; but sometimes things happen.
To begin: One of the few things that stood out as I read through it were the phrases parted by a series of "..."s when they could've been seperated by semicolons, periods or paragraphs. (Paragraphs because, on some of the BOOM!surprise phrases, if you single out the big, shocking sentence and make it into its own little paragraph, it can be just as effective as "...", without the awkward placement of that dreaded dot-dot-dot. If you're afraid of fractioned sentences, remember that butchering writing CAN enhance it. Give it a try sometime.
Another main point is the narration. It's consistent and both decriptive but not too-descriptive... and yet, it lacks a certain quality. It's not dull, persay, but wading through it may become an annoyance. For example, telling instead of knowing that something is assumed. When Red X blinds Robin, it's redundant to say "blinding the Boy Wonder." If something pastes itself on the dude's eyes, it's obvious his vision is impaired. If he stumbles away and is knocked back in the next sentence, it's obvious that he's severely handicapped by it.
Annoyance Number Three: Every weapon of his is an "X (Weapon)". Seeing as you've established that YES, he DOES use X-weapons, you can leave off the X part of it. Instead of "Red X X-tied his X-shoes, but it X-hurt because he X-had an X-papercut on his X-finger," you can write like a normal human being and never touch the X key (unless you're writing about foxes, boxes, exercise, xylophones, excellently-explosive-and-exuberant sex or Xanadu).
If you think I'm being ridiculous, think about this part: "Red X was easily able to elude them, using explosive Xs and barrier Xs to stop the guards he couldn’t slip away from." Would its meaning differ in any way if you merely said "using explosives and barriers"? I think not.
Those are my main grievances; aside from the rare misspellings/whathaveyou ("Now, nothing stood 'began' Red X and the reactor.") and strange uses of words ("...still in ram form and 'stroking' his hoof across the floor..."), it was a very good read.
On a better note...
One of the most clever things I've read in a long time: "As you like to say... azarath, metreon, xynothium!" Also, you're one of the few people who can manage to insert "coalescing" into narration, as well as create a promising identity for the skull-masked criminal. Sanza Salazar? Creative, ethnic, distinctive... Surely this will be a worthy version of X, destined to go down in the history of semi-OCs.
Next chapter's review coming to you soon.
