Wow. An in-depth Jinx centeral fic...which is still on my to-write/to-do list.
So, my question is: are you planning to wrap up the rest of the T.V. series in three chapters?
Either way, update soon.

I like how you said that she had older brothers instead of a father because that's kind of how the Hive is to her in a way. I liked that a lot. ANyway, update soon please

Well, this was definitely another insightful chapter. I seem to be able to appreciate this Jinx a bit more than her comic book adaptation and even her cartoon version. She seems so three-dimensional, and I can actually appreciate the reward that she wants for all of her hard work, in spite of the fact that she knows that her goal might be a bit unattainable. Also, that was an interesting tidbit about the comparasion between angels and demons in combat. An assessment I think that I would have to agree with you on. Archangels and warhosts might be a different ballgame, but I think you are on the money there. Hmm, the part about alcohol and mages also seems pretty interesting, too, since I see that applying to various degrees to many SPBs.

I liked the comparison of fighting demons and angels very much. And, yeah, if Jinx was going to date any civilian a mafia kid is probably the most likely. Poor See-more wanting to be protective of Jinx, wanting to have her himself.
I guess we readers will have to see if the demons come back into the picture. The real advancement of the story here seemed to be in the paragraphs describing her lack of connection to her Jump City environment and the single line where she gets the impression that the HIVE boys would rather she weren't there at all.
I anxiously await subsequent chapters.

I'm one of those notorious non-reviewing readers, but, seeing as yours is probably one of the best teen titans fanfics on the site, I can make an exception.
I absolutely love how Shreya to Jinx is character driven, not pairing driven. Everyone remains in-character, which is also becoming harder and harder to find. But what probably is the most impressive part of your story is your integration of the comics.
You bring in comic-only characters, and use information that is only given out in the comics (such as Jinx being from India) while still making it perfectly understandable for those who only watch the show. J
inx is the coolest character in Teen Titans, and it's really nice to see someone giving her the attention she deserves.

More good stuff. I can definitely see Jinx having a photographic memory of her academy lessons. Good explanation of Kid Wykkyd. It seems to fit.
You might enjoy a book out now called "Soon I Will Be Invincible" by a guy named Austin Grossman.

Ahh, another great story and a wonderfully written chapter. It is insteresting to see that there is actually something that can even topple the mighty Jinx. It is also interesting to note that it seems that both Jinx and Robin seem to apply similar schools of thought when it comes to their leadership tactics to their respective teams. The Dune reference was both amusing and in Jinx's case probably highly accurate as well. So CoH/V is how she works out her plans before sending her team out on their missions. I wonder if Robin might also be doing the same thing from the Tower as well.

Aww... Kyd and Angel, how cute. Once again, I loved this chapter. It was nearly free of seriousness, and serious plots can always need these kind of chapters every once in a while. Also, the whole psi vamp thing was impressive, either you are indeed extremely creative, or you've done your homework. I guess it can go both ways though. The bid with the elevater and Billy was great, too, hee hee. So, I can't wait for the next chapter. :)

Always good to see a nice, in depth story about a seldom seen character I find highly interesting! _ Very well informed adn well written. I look forward to more chapters and do urge you to continue to write the sequel, if you have it planned.
I also wonder if there will be any scenes of interaction between Raven and Jinx in specific. I've not seen a story yet that goes into a such a large scale battle (beyond the Heaven/Hell/ or Angel/Demon thing common to Raven/Trigon-related stories). Your use of large amounts of deities is (while at sometimes hard to keep straight in my head) very well thought out.
I hope to see more-keep writing. This is my first review of this story, but I have followed it through since some of the very early chapters. I look forward to the continuation of this story as well as its completion-and a sequel, if you do. I'll be keeping an eye on it. _
Perhaps, when I have enough chapters (I prefer to prewrite a few chapters) to my Jinx story, I shall post it. But that's neither here nor there.
Good luck and good writing!

Wow, I am so glad to find out you'd updated because I was having a really awful day and it made me feel better. *sniff* I think you did a fantastic job on this, it is nice to see that there are other people like Jinx out there, making the situation a bit more real. You are really good at incorperating realism into your fanfics. I would like a soon update in any one of your fics (especially this one) as soon as you can.

Well, read all 20 chapters in one sitting. Took about 5 hours, but I don't feel it was that wasted, as it sure paints an interesting picture of the mentality of Jinx. Oddly, even though Cyborg is nominally my favorit Titan in the comics and cartoon (ravager being a close second), but you did bring up some very valid character flaws about both him and the Titans as a group.

Yes, I can see why you're pissed about the whole review issue. Its kinda sad, and rude if you ask me, when people don't take the time and review one's story, not giving any feedback whatsoever. What a pity.
Well, my fellow author, I'm here to give my opinion, and I hope it helps you considerably. First off, I'm digging the plot; the variety of mystical elements is mind-dizzying. Though I'm slightly confused as to what's going on with the angels and mages and all these other fictional beings. Forgive me, I try to keep up, I really do. XD Your spelling, grammar, and punctuation seem to be in good works (but really, who looks for small things like that? Nobody's perfect, right?)
Hm, any hardcore critique from me? Well, at the moment, I honestly can't think of much. Only that it would be nice to see a softer side to Jinx, but the battle chick ego works for her. :) But seriously, everything seems well balanced. But if I find anything that seems out of place, I'll be sure to let you know.
I also loved reading about Jinx's experiences as the TT seasons progressed, it's very interesting. I have to wonder, with only 5 more chapters left, will Lightspeed come into play? I'm definitely a "Flinx" fan, but hey, whatever works, I'll still adore this unique tale.
Well, I hope that you feel better, and that people will get off their lazy bums and review this addicting fanfic. Peace Out :P

Well, soo-e! This sure is a grandstand of a story ma'am!
| KF fan chapter 20 . 4/10/2007
Hmm. Well, you were up front from the start that yours is a different Jinx. I think I accepted that but with Jinx's killing of the potential rival in a previous chapter and this murderous fight against those effing angels you put an exclamation point on that. The more you stretch her in that direction the harder it is to accept some of the adorable/lovable stuff about her, like watching her favorite silly movie over and over. I don't think you've stretched her past the breaking point where fictional Jinx can't encompass both at once.
But I think a lot of readers extended great sympathy to Jinx because their was enough ambiguity in her background to allow them to project the unfairness of their own lives or their friends onto her as her hidden motivation. And there was enough ambiguity as to what she'd done as a villain to give her a pass if she wanted to leave the villain side of things after meeting Kid Flash. You've really taken away those options. Your Jinx can still be adorable but she flat out kills. And she serves Kali, not the nicest boss, I think. I wonder if a lot of readers need to be reacquainted with the lovable elements of Jinx to accept all the extreme side of her that you've been showing.
