I started this earlier today, and I just couldn't stop reading! It's just so good, I don't know what to say. It's a true gem, and I enjoyed it very much :) Usually I don't see characters kept in character so well. Outstanding!

This is very possibly one of the best fanfictions I have ever read.
When I first saw this movie, it struck a chord in me that in retrospect probably should have been negative or frightening or... I don't know. But it wasn't. I was happy. I felt weirdly safe, even in the face of murderous, bloody, uncaring angels. I felt more warm and protected thinking about the Prophecy's Gabriel watching over me, corrupted and confused and all, than any other version of him, because that sort of cold, alien distantness seemed so much more real. (Not really sure what that says about me...) But basically, I loved the movie, I loved the rest of the series, and I couldn't get enough of it.
This is amazing.
This is the perfect mix of... of stuff. It's completely atypical - it's not a romance, it has an alien element to it that is PERFECT for the characters... who are brilliantly characterized, by the way.
I've fallen in respect/awe/admiration (not love - but something else) with your characterization of Gabriel. I adore The Kindness of Strangers as well, by the way. I know it's been literally eight years since you wrote this, but... well. Thank you, from the absolute bottom of my heart, for doing so.

You are awesome with the writing. I've just watched the movie and have been wondering where to look for the bible references and archangel Gabriel. I appreciate your cites of references and hope to read more of your work :) 3 Christopher Walken

I'm confused about both the dream of the nephilim and the breakdown warning when it ended like this.

My favorite story ever. I've been rereading it I don't know how many times over the years and it always makes me feel better when I'm down.

You are an absolutely awesome writer! Well, when it comes to Prophecy and, specifically, Gabriel stories. I really enjoyed reading this story._
It was nice of Gabriel and Simon and God to let Katherine know that everything was over and that not all angels are as bad as she thought. And it was sweet of Gabriel not to let Katherine suffer._
I really hope that you are going to write more stories about Gabriel! He is such a fascinating character. I am really looking forward to those stories!_
P.S.: There is a "The Prophecy" category in the "Movies" section._

I know it has been a long time sicne you wrote this story. Recently, I watched the Prophecy again, and began searching for fanction throughout the Net. Couldn't find much of it, and when I stumbled upon your story, I immediately began to read... and imagine. I adore the character of Gabriel created by Walken, and I love your story - it is so true and reminds me of the movie so much. Some of your lines are so funny that I just burst out laughing! Like this one:
"If Gabriel and I were the last two people left on Earth, the human race would die out." Which is literally true, she reflected" - this is just brilliant! Your fiction is great, I am just at a loss for words, so I'd better go back to reading. Wish there are more stories like this on the Net.
Or maybe you wrote more about Prophecy? Maybe you know the www sites where more fanfiction about this film can be found?
Thank you for your talent!

Hey..I THOUGHT the description of that outfit sounded familiar! That'll teach me to read stories out of order.
Absolutely terrific job. As I said before, I'll read ANYTHING else you write about The Prophecy! I have yet to see the third film, but these glimpses into Gabriel's life have done a great deal to tide me over until I get the chance. I'll most likely re-read them from time to time.
Thanks for sharing your talent, time and effort. I really appreciate it!

I know you wrote this a while ago, but I sure hope you get inspired soon to write another Prophecy fic. I'm favoriting all three of yours and adding you to my fav authors, too. I just recently discovered Dr. Who, so I may read some of those in the meantime.

Well, you did it again. You actually made me have sympathy for Greg. You really know how to hold a reader's interest. Can't wait to finish this, but I know I'm gonna be sad to see it end 'cause I have thorougly enjoyed it!
| snacgirl chapter 9 . 8/20/2009
Wow! Great chapter! I loved the confrontation scene - I've been waiting for something like that & you certainly didn't disappoint here. As for the ending, I really didn't see that coming. Gonna take me a moment to let it sink in before I can continue reading.

Ah, character development - love it!
Glad she admitted it, to herself as well as to him!
| snacgirl chapter 7 . 8/19/2009
OH, BOY! This chapter took me for a ride. I started out still liking Greg, but that's gone straight out the window now that he's gotten Altman off. Glad to see more of the rivalry between G & G, too.
You've got my curiousity up with Gabriel's wall-writing and I'll be Googling "blood feather" in the very near future.
And what an ending!
(I'm also trying to figure out why Greg's not sneezing - is the filter working or is it simply that Gabriel just washed the dust off?)
