SilX chapter 1 . 10/2/2013
The storytelling is pretty good & I like the idea a lot. There are a couple of grammatical errors that should be fixed. I did however have an issue with some of the inconsistencies with the 'Faries Landing' universe. I don't think they have newspapers, reporters & photos in Avalon. Also it's not clear if its 16 human or farie years ago that these 'photos' happened. I just think that fan fic should stick to the style ( unless its made very clear that it was sine in purpose). Explaining these things may take extra time & make for a longer story, but it would take it from good to great.

Man oh man, you are realy good. I like how you're so descriptive, though you have a few run-on sentences that you might want help with. I'm gonna put this on alert and favorite, keep this up! There's not that many FL stories, and I love the manga...(sigh) well, keep writing! Kay kay bye now!

Wow it's been a bit over a year. XD; Any plans on updating? Yours is pretty much one of the best Faeries' Landing fic, het or yaoi, that I've found. Of course, the fact that it's PainxCharon is an extra plus ;)

Please update!

I love the Faerie's Landing series. You portrayed them very well! Pain and Charon flinging? Wow.

I have a lot of trouble finding any other numbers besides number 1,2,3,4,5, and 11 anywhere! Have the bookstores here don't have them in any chronological order. (sob)

i loved it!
Misura chapter 3 . 11/24/2005
I loved this chapter, in part because it just made me grin so very wide, picturing Charon listening to that conversation, and picturing Pain not-so-privately amused. (I also loved Charon's thoughts on formality and his opinions on the people who didn't maintain it properly when addressing him.) _

That was so cute! Is there going to be another one?

I'll give you a yaoi cookie.

o.o Meow!
Misura chapter 2 . 10/27/2005
(I totally stick with my opinion that Charon's being a wooly-head with this whole 'Pain romance fling is of the past' thing, but, of course, there's a great deal of wishful thinking in me doing so, too.)

Poor Charon. I loved the idea of him having wanted to become a pilot once, before settling for becoming him 'the ruler of faeriekind in all but name' instead. I also loved his first impressions of Pain -even if it made me very curious to catching a glimpse of what is or was going on in *Pain's* mind. (I wouldn't want to sound too greedy though, and I enjoyed this blast-from-the-past (in a way) quite a lot.) Hm. This story starts looking like it'll get to be a lo-o-ong one. *grins, purrs and blatantly disbelieves Charon's estimation of his and Pain's relationship* -

*shakes head* MAN, how I LOVE your writing style. I laughed at the ego/threesome joke.

Aw! Very sweet! I'm loving these characters already! I couldn't find _any_ sites that had stuff on them though... *cries*

But anyway, I'll definitely be picking this series up next time I go to the bookstore.

I seriously love how your portray relationships... the odd humor, and seriousness, and the twist in the relationship that you always seem to bring out. You always write pairings with a new viewpoint, in a very fangirl-satisfying way witouth it being OOC (though in this case, I guess I wouldn't know, but I'm basing that on all your other fics) and making it sound... angsty while beautiful at the same time. I don't know, I'm rambling, but you have such an excellent writing style and way of portraying the same-old-same-old in a new way.

Update soon!

*smiles* Interesting. I'm sorry to say I've never read Faerie's landing, but I love your work so much I usually read it cause I know I won't be disappointed. But I'm interested in the characters and will look up info on them now... so I at least know what they look like, lol. Acutally, this is how I became obsessed with Kingdom hearts and Final Fantasy- I read an incredily good fic on it, and fell in love with the characters/game without even playing it. Lol.

Anyway... very interesting situation, I like Pain's character a lot already, and I'm curious how this is going to go on... good luck!
Misura chapter 1 . 10/11/2005
Charon, I *am* disappointed in you. Judging from what I've read so far, you did things with Pain as a 'cute kid' (major kawaii mental image there, by the way) that you don't care to repeat in the present. (Sorry, but 'porn' and 'cute kids' don't mix that well in my mind, so I've kind of separated the two. ;)

... Okay, so you were sixteen and having a fling, and now you're going to ask the person you had said fling with, who habitually hits on you, to help you get those pictures back. (That's either real smart, or very dumb, depending on your ulterior motives.)

I loved the set-up for this (though my inner cynic says Charon could just whip up a spell to deal with the problem) and am definitely looking forward to the next chapter. _
