Long and beautiful. The perfect fiction childhood recollection of Integra. I'm one for fluffy moments... and when they are rare, it makes things all the merrier. More... realistic. )

Please continue this story! I love how you portray the characters of this anime!

Tut tut, love, you start off with a lie! You and I both know that you would rather have given it to Beck. LOL Thank you though. It's very nice.

I love the setup of it, with an incident occurring each year as Integra grows older. You've packed a ton of details into every scene too which is impressive. (Love the bits with her Norwegian admirer. That's a heck of a reason to take up smoking!) The dialect is great and it's lovely to see Integra with a sense of humor. I loved the line “If I submit it tomorrow, it should reach her within four years.” in particular. It made me snicker. You also throw in a few novel ideas for the fandom. I like the idea of Alucard changing his appearance because Integra changed hers. In all of the other fics I've read the white hair was associated with his starvation diet. This is a nice change though, and manga canon Alucard is a human shape shifter so it's very appropriate IMO. I squee-ed when he called her by name for the first time. I have a... thing... for first time name calling. It tends to reduce me to more of a spastic fangirl than I generally am. Integra's reaction to the alien nature of the kiss was very nice too. Alucard may be dangerously attractive at times, but he's still dead... which renders him a bit different than your average hot-blooded young male admirer. And, man, I have GOTTA get me an orgasm-inducing necklace! XD

And now on to some crit type things. (You did want crit type things too, right?)

Vlad Dracula's family was Catholic. The name Dracul comes from the Order of the Dragon, a knightly order founded by the Holy Roman Emperor. Vlad himself was a Catholic later in life. Or rather, he became a Catholic for political reasons. So he has been a Catholic, although likely not REALLY a Catholic.

Also, if I understood it correctly, the rosary belonged to Mina? But he had had it since he was a mortal? That's a wee bit impossible since he was a vampire when he met Mina...

That was a damn good story.

I liked it alot. I liked watching how once grows into friendship and then how one grows apart. But like all good friends, you never really say goodbye.

excellent story.

will u be writing more? oh please do so it was incredibly touching
Emma chapter 1 . 1/23/2006
Wow. This is incredible! Most fanfictions make Alucard too slushy for his own good, but you've got his character pretty well! Only one thing - you need to spell-check a couple of times, but it's not a major thing. Wow.
6StringSamurai13 chapter 1 . 1/22/2006
Wow...that was really good. I haven't read many Van Helsing fanfics, but this was really really good. Great job on writing Integra with each passing year with Alucard. Loved the dialogue between those two. Great characterizations and a really interesting idea for the story. I loved how it ended. Very cute...as cute as a vampire and his master can be anyway :-p. Keep up the good work!
