Corvid Angel chapter 1 . 12/23/2009
Excellent- extremely enjoyable - and you are great with dialogue! It didn't even have to be the boys- it would stand alone as a believable, enjoyable piece no matter who they were, thanks to your skill. Very visual- looking forward to exploring more of your work!

Augh! His conscience! *cracks up* I seriously laughed out loud right there and I am eternally glad that I am the only one in the house. I love your Javert! He's just...just...gah! He's wonderfully snarky and sarcastic and just fantastic! *spazzes in a fangirlish attack*

it makes perfect sense to me that javert would be valjean's conscience. and i love that he "barks"... it's an almost hugo-esque description, but it's so not at the same time.

sorry for going around like a creeper and reviewing all of your stories. it's a compliment, but i can see how it could be annoying. i really like them though.

That sounds so much like "A beautiful Mind". *lol*

Well done and quite unexpected, and brought back memories of seemingly long forgotten mazhs lessons. ;) Though the pink lace briefly unsettled me.

You and your unexpected twists... :)

The bookshelf is fascinating. :) And hehe, I got further than Valjean as far as Hamlet is concerned. :)

Oh, and see there, I know the dialogue lines you did not write out but were cited... "Die eine hält, mit derber Liebeslust, / sich an die Welt mit klammernden Organen. / Die andre hebt gewaltsam sich vom Dust / zu den Gefilden hoher Ahnen..." I know my Faust. Parts of it by heart, even. :-) *is unreasonably happy*

"Why didn't you come not six months ago?" Am I daft, or is that "not" too much?

And I thought I'd never see you quote the musical in the middle of dialogue. :)

On we go...

Do joints actually crunch? Like you can crunch cereals? Funny, didn't know that use of the word. :)

Nice descriptions of surroundings once again, and you still hold the atmosphere.

And Undead!Javert... creepy. :)

And the ending - lol! I'll need to go and put on my Humboldt T-shirt. ;)
Darth Gilthoron chapter 2 . 5/18/2006
Spooky. :)

The nightmare in particular is very good, and the snow and the storm picking up.

Though I'm beginning to doubt that the title fits with this, it sounds more like something humorous (like when Valjean was attacked by an animated broomstick in the janitor's cupboard and knocked it down with a flower pot or the other way round *lol*), while the atmosphere you create is very far from humorous indeed.
Darth Gilthoron chapter 1 . 5/18/2006
Found myself yet something else to read. :) (and something else to review to abbreviate the wait for my next e-mail for you - I'm almost done, I swear! *lol*)

Very well written, very dark and chilly. No, dark is the wrong word, make it... gloomy. Gloomy and empty and cold. A good atmosphere, and fits well into the scene in the book.

On to the next chapter before I have to go up for taxation...
Judin chapter 5 . 1/22/2006
An exellent story! Your language is wonderful and the details keep things constantly interesting. Both characters seem very in character.

I'll definitely take a further look at your works.
Ms. Pen chapter 5 . 11/13/2005
Okay, I've been slacking. I must say:

Chapters 1-3 were very much like if Hugo had written "The Raven" instead of Poe.

Chapter 4? I never thought I'd see the day you used lyrics from the musical in a fic. Unless you've done it before and I didn't catch on.

Chapter 5, I'm really sorry he's not wearing pink lace stockings.
Oldwickedsongs chapter 1 . 11/12/2005
This story reminds me of the Christmas Carol for some reason, in the haunting script and careful prose. The imaginary is amazing, breath-taking and frightening. Valjean is made real, through pain, while Javert is protrayed lovingly and with the smallest bit of humor. (I loved the musical nod.) Before submitting Gadjo, I read lots of works to help understand how people were tackling the subjects and was thrilled when such a talented writer thought my try was good. Thank you for the review and now, at the risk of sounding ungrateful, I ask that your quickly update this story!
DevilsChild7 chapter 5 . 11/9/2005
Oh, very nice! This is splendid!

Although, I admit I was a bit perturbed by the math work- I believe Algebra 1 is enough math for one day.

Anyway, I love how you've interworked Valjean's conscience into the fic. Very interesting concept...I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.

I hope this doesn't qualify as either a "Good job" or a "Ur fic sux," as you said on LJ. :)
