|Reviews for Prey Of The Queen Spider|
| Neanda chapter 12 . 2/28/2011
You know, it's been a while since I've read a fic written so well. 0.0 Not that any of the stories I've read were badly written, but the way you worded everything was a true pleasure to see. I noticed but one - yes, ONE - error in the entire fic, and that was 'morose' instead of 'moreso' in chapter...3 I believe. It was a typo, too, so I don't mind. XD
I believe you captured the different senshi perfectly as well as Kakusui and the several OC's. The clashing of opinions between Sailor Moon and the Outers seemed really believable and very much reminded me of the beginnings of Sailor Moon S. Also it's nice to see Setsuna fighting as hard as the rest, since most of the time she seems to be delegated a Time Mage role. Not unfitting, but it doesn't do her justice.
Of course, I love everything Mako, so it should come as no surprise that I loved her bit in this story. Her helplessness, fear and desperation were tangible. At one point I was mentally begging for the Silver Crystal to come to the rescue, because I didn't want her to die such a horrible death. T_T
The only point I feel could've been worked on more was Artemis' tale. he said he'd do some research on the Kumo-onna, but he was never mentioned again after that. And the poor cat risked his life at the top of Tokyo Tower, no less! (the only thing protecting him from becoming deep-fried being some rubber gloves - the mental image that gives me is hilarious) He deserves a little more credit.
Of course I love anything MakotoAmi, so naturally that means I love anything Ami. My inner fangirl laments the fact she didn't appear in this story. XP But that's okay, because she isn't really supposed to.
I had a lot of fun reading this story. The premise was exciting and you wrote it well. I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy your other work as well. All in all I'm just glad you finished this, because this was one story I didn't want to see unfinished. :)

BAM! Bomnshell. In good Sailormoon fashion. Or rather, in good Sailor Venus fashion. That, and misquoting quotes.

I love spiders! I won't deny it that I was cheering for the spider queen, though I was freaking out when Sailor Uranus almost died T_T You really captured the fear of being completely helpless like Makoto was, you almost feel like you are being wrapped up in that spider silk. I'm totally in love in the fact that Minako eloped...o Minako you crazy crazy girl...this is a great story, especially since its about the original senshi as adults:)

A wonderful conclusion to a terrific story
| trp0522 chapter 11 . 4/3/2006
A nicely done climax to an excellent story.
On of the thing l like best about your work is that all the characters act and feel like their Japanese Dub counterparts and no one is OC, not even Neo-Queen Serenity. I like the fact that your Usagi is fundamentally a good caring person who even weeps for her enemies, unlike some fanfics where they transform her into a cold heartless killing machine or worse a Mary-Sue who has no flaws, can do everything and contains all of the strengths and sometimes powers of the various senshi. .

Next to Mamoru, Rei clearly has the second strongest psychic link to Usagi though I wonder who has the third strongest link to Usagi/Neo-Queen Serenity… Ikuko, Chibi-Usa, Luna or perhaps Minako?

Good thing that Mamoru was able to work something out with Tomohama or otherwise Ami might have graduated Medical School before Mamoru.
| trp0522 chapter 8 . 4/3/2006
A fantastic chapter with a good mix of drama and action.
| trp0522 chapter 7 . 4/3/2006
A nice fast paced action pact chapter, good job presenting Kumo-onna as a deadly and ruthless villain but not an overpowering one.
| trp0522 chapter 6 . 4/3/2006
A nice plot build up chapter that explains the myth within the story, and Kakusui’s reaction on meeting the Outer Senshi.
| trp0522 chapter 5 . 4/3/2006
A great chapter with a nice farewell scene between Usagi and Grandpa about the cycle of life and that his story was coming to an end. And the fact that Luna called the Outer Senshi to back Usagi up was a nice unexpected surprise
| trp0522 chapter 4 . 4/3/2006
Nice action paced chapter with a good cliffhanger of an ending
| trp0522 chapter 3 . 4/3/2006
Sorry for the long period between reviews, I just haven’t time to read and review lately.
Good chapter I particularly like the scene Usagi had with Naru and they were trying to maintain their friendship.

*glances around with embarassment*. Sorry, dear Author. I'm able to catch up with your story only now.
Well, what can I say? The chapters from 5 to 10 had your trademark, steady pace and suspence building fully working. You nearly reawakened my childhood aracnofobia too...
I must say I really enjoyed this tale because it featured the Outers. And you have an excellent grasp on this Senshi trio (and on a certain couple of senshi of said trio). Plus, you showed the contrast between their attitude and Usagi's very well. I haven't found many GOOD fics featuring the Outers beside yours *claps*.
All the parts featuring Luna and Artemis together were real fun too (and the quotation from Shakespeare... the cherry on top).
And, of course, I cherished every paragraphs with Mamoru in it. About this -about him- I'd say more, but first I need some spare time to wrap up all my considerations in a proper e-mail to you.
The little, touching glimpses for minor characters (like Doctor Tomohama)were just... right *claps again*
Finally, I really liked this ending chappie (especially the very end of it - and the very last line _).
Thank you for writing quality stories, Bill.

I feel kind of sad for Minako. Of course it's Ace. And I know how it'll end up.
Well, hopefully Makoto will get better.
What am I saying? Of course she will! Must be at least two dozen fics set after this! _
And I'm glad I'm not the only one who giggled a bit at the idea of an in-character Usagi trying to seduce Mamoru.
