Damn you why couldnt X and Lyn have ended up together
| Cormag Ravenstaff chapter 26 . 11/26/2012
That was really good!
All I can say is WOW!
| Hyralc chapter 26 . 2/18/2011
DARN IT! This sucks! I was looking forward to seeing this finished. Sigh.

Well, this was...unexpected. I was overjoyed when I saw this fic come up in the subject line of my alert, but upon seeing this abrupt end, I was disappointed. I'm at least glad that you cleared up the mystery surrounding X, but this really is kind of anticlimactic.

Man, this is an old-school story! It's been a while since I saw you last...I think I remember you! Maybe...in any case, it's nice to see an author of your presence return, even for a lil' while. Although I've been remiss about reviewin this, I'd just like you to know that you've really accomplished a lot with this fic, and you should be proud of it! Believe me, I understand...m'self, I'm not as big on Fire Emblem as I used to be, and by the time I'm done with my own big Renault fanfic I'll prolly be done with fanfiction as a whole, too. Now, that won't be for a while, but still XD So I just wanted to let you know I understand, and I'm grateful for all the work you gave to us in the FE fandom. Good luck on your future ventures, my friend! :D

Just been re-reading this, and caught something interesting that I'd missed first time around in Chapter 7. References to Bramimond...Unfortunately, this was the only chapter I hadn't reviewed yet...

...that was cruel... not even funny amounts of it either... dude, you got owned by your own muses... ouch...
Good stuff. More please.

Geez, it's been so long...luckily I remembered as soon as I saw that title go up on my alert screen, "THIS IS HIGH PRIORITY!" *laughs* Didn't even know which topic I was going to be returning to. I just remembered that I'd been waiting for the next chapter of Person's Unknown, and now it's here. And it's good.

I will be blunt and get straight to the point.
This character killing has really, really got to stop. You just keep doing in character, after character, after character and even though this is labelled as a Romance fic, you might as well lable it Angst instead, since you're not even giving the Romance any time to fully take effect - you keep killing everyone with your so called "X" before they can do jack shit and have everyone mourning afterwards. Then X murders somebody else and you're not even letting them finish mourning the last person before they have to repeat the process on another.
Killing off your own original tactician, fine, she's your character. But let's be serious - Guy, Wil, Dorcas AND Kent? That isn't counting the near deaths you had a while ago (Sain, Matthew, Serra, ect.). If you were trying to drive the point that anyone can die, killing off Dorcas and Wil at almost the same time so quickly and casually should have been enough (I'm still not stomaching the Wil murder too well and it isn't because I'm a Wil fan, of which I'm not).
It actually seems alot like you harbour some kind of grudge against the Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword cast and want to Bash them as much as possible. Particularly Lyn. You've killed her best friend, her lover, tormented her memories with X, brought back her best friend from the dead, proceeded to torture her by making her watch Florina lose her sanity with the premonitions, let her come so close to killing X before letting him escape multiple times, made cracks about her physical health and even let her kill her own tactician. Next thing you know, she's going to watch Kent come back to life and die again in front of her eyes. It's a wonder she hasn't lost it yet. Or maybe you're keeping her sane so she can feel the hurt more 0_o.
In any case, killing off this many characters is simply unacceptable, even if you do bring them back (the act of which defeats the purpose of getting them killed in the first place).
And then we have the issue of X. What is with this guy? He must be level 50 or something with all stats maxed. No offense, but I'm tending agree with Admiral Obvious. He is the Gary Stu incarnate. Or maybe Mary Sue. He's got no freaking weakspots - not even any genitals, for lord's sake! Any hit he takes, he automatically recovers from, unless it's Matthew and his poison (who he practically killed anyway). Any hit which he doesn't/can't recover from, he uses his amazing 40 Spd and 10 Move to escape from the danger. And if that fails because he's cornered or something else, he also has a first degree in politics, able to sweet-talk his way out of anything. And if/when charisma fails, his 100 maxed-out Luck and Skill assures that he gets an oppotunity to Critical Hit his attacker to kingdom come, usually somehow ending up with them only unconcious or wounded instead of dead. The reason? Because he has a mysterious agenda, background and voodoo curse/hex of his own which prevents him from killing certain people, but apparently doesn't stop him from drugging Matthew and Lyn and hanging/dropping Serra from a very tall height. Either way, the point is that X always gets off scot free from everything, even though not everything he does is entirely ethical. In fact, screw ethics - most of what he's done is like what smoking does to you lungs - nothing good, for certain. And even worse is that Lyndis' Legions just keep coming back, begging for more. The problem here is pretty easy to see - X never learns anything. No matter what happens to him, he never changes his mindset. Need to get rid of something? Kill it. Need to get rid of something he can't kill? Knock 'em out and tie 'em to a tree. Injured and can't recover? Take a hostage and make someone heal him. Handcuffed and held captive? Break the cuffs, break the door. Trapped in a corner? Demolish the wall. Outnumbered? Run away. If one doesn't work, another will. Surrender is not an option for the guy, he simply has too much raw power. He seems to follow that old motto "Those who lose and run away, live to fight another day". This simply cannot continue. X cannot keep being an unstoppable juggernaut. He just can't keep mowing down anyone in his path, no matter how many mental or physical strikes he takes. It's unrealistic. A car does not keep moving in a straight line after it takes a rocket launcher explosion to the fuel tank, not unless it's been modified to do so, in which case it wouldn't do to keep calling it a normal "car". And in this case, I would probably refer to X as some sort of demi-god, if not Idoun's heir himself, as long as this keeps up.
If only Karel were here... Everyone else is too gullible to kill X (who always seems to earn their trust somehow, then backstabs them when he's close enough). Karel would certainly be a whole different story, though, he's just about powerful enough to put X in his place (if the Sword Demon thing is to be believed). That is, if X is not some sort of god who can slaughter everyone and anyone.

You DO realize X is the epitome of a Gary Stu, right?
| keaira19 chapter 25 . 6/9/2008
…I luv your writing, did I mention that? This chapter was great!
I think my favorite part was between Lyn and X. There’s just so much going on with those two even with all the mystery and lapses. I knew she wasn’t going to kill X – even though he killed everyone (how sad) – but it was still pretty suspenseful. Lyn’s kind of cold though with her mindset of using X as a tool then disposing of him later. We’ll see though if she has the guts to actually do it.
Holy cow! Quicksand? Aw, Rebecca had to kill the horse. :( I luv horses. And what’s with Lucius’ pity party, huh? Raven’s right, he has no arm not no brain! Hee, I also see some SainxRebecca here! :P
Oh geez! What has Fiora gotten herself into now? That description of her leg was not a pretty one and now I have ugly, bloody images in my head. Eep. :( But it was well-written too! And yay, Florina’s stepping up in a tense situation and not stuttering!
Lovely chapter, Taylor! Can’t wait for more!
| keaira19 chapter 24 . 6/9/2008
WOW. Almost (almost!) forgot how much I luv this chapter.
Raven was always one of my favorite characters and quiet frankly his relationship with Rebecca is adorable! And he kissed her! Finally, progress! And go her for making such a killer shot (and getting a kiss in return!). Can’t wait to see what’s up with them later! :P
And OH. MY. GOODNESS. Juicy stuff going on with Lyn and X. Alone together in a snowed in cabin… *eyebrows raised* Very nice premise, here, Taylor. :) Luv the intrigue. Though now I’m racking my brain trying to figure out what she could possibly want to ask!
Boy, does love make one crazy. Fiora is insane in this chapter! I mean, yeah, I understand her heartsickness here but still… I feel bad for Sain too. Even though he’s traipsed after every girl at the camp it must stink to be in his position. Poor Sain. :(
Okay, next chapter! :)
| keaira19 chapter 23 . 6/9/2008
Holy-moly! You know what I just realized? I just realized that I never reviewed this chapter. What a slow epiphnay this was! Jeez! I'm sorry! So here's a review now albeit a very, very, very late one!
Okay, first things first, you know I LUV those great interactions between Lyn and X. They're perfectly written and that verbal game of back-and-forth between them is SO much fun to read! Second, Erk and Priscilla are so cute even though her memory is MIA and she's eating deadly mushrooms. :P Great chapter, and now I'm off to read chapter 24 whose review didn't seem to go through...oh well! Now I just get to read it over!

[wanting someone to say ‘no’ and give him an excuse to wait.]
HAHAHA awesome. Yes. That's Hector for you! SOMEONE PLEASE SAY NO PLEASE SAY NO PLEASE...
Pent...the hound dog. I think I just died.
Aww, good work with Lucius. People think that just because a character is positive it means they can't become negative. After going through so much, after traveling and hating it? Yeah... Even the best, happiest characters will get a little down about life.
Not much else to say. I'll be looking forward to more... I thought this story had died! Haha.
Anyway, keep it up!
