Reviews for The Fruit of Ambition

Holy woah
Where to start

I really enjoyed these 4 chapters... this is one of the if not the best alexanderxHephaestuion fic out there and trust me, I'm a picky person AND reader (sorry if I start like this but hey this is what I truly think).

I'm pretty new in the fandom but I love both Alexander as well as Hephaestion with all my heart, after research and research... I think you've captured Alexander's character really well (and the relationship between our lovers is absolutely adorable by the way; with that hint of melancholy I absolutely love)
I adored the AU choice and how you used it, loved the many little things that make this a well-written fiction.

The only thing I didn't enjoy was reading that you updated it in 2011 or 13, I can't remember, and I told myself WHY. WHYYYYYYYYYY.
(Then I saw you started it in 2006 so I have calmed down) (a little bit)

My hope is that you really continue adding chapters (or even one), just to conclude everything... So many feelings.

I'd also really like to draw something for this story, if you'd be so kind to respond to show that you haven't abandoned And to see if you have any preferences ;)

Grazie mille di tutto, davvero.
Ho davvero apprezzato il tuo lavoro, voglio poter
contraccambiare ...
Baci dall'Italia

ohhhwhy don't you update this marvelous novel? you know i lately was fascinated by the plots you set in your story. i've read too many Alex and Phai's fanfiction, but it's really hard to find a modern version about them, so i very much appreciate that you wrote this! wish you could tell me what happened next?

Oh...very very interesting story. I just read all at once. This is very nice and very original. Alexander's character is very interesting...and now they met! please do continue soon. I wanna know how Alex is going to make this evening worthwhile :) also, why Phillip need Phai to be in the class with Alex? is there something hidden behind Phillip's intention?

I loved this chapter; I really think you're doing a very good job with your charachters, and the way Hephaistion and Alexander finally met, after so many years in which Alexander only dreamt about the other, it's absolutely exciting. I laughed at Hephaistion's gaffe, and Alexander's initial shyness made me fear he could ruin it all; but I can see he eventually managed to master the situation.

In short, a great update. I couldn't exclude that mentioning Metallica made it greater to me...

Looking forward to read the next chapter,

Hello dear CameoCorbin,

...Oh my! I'm so honor with this dedication (blush) Thank you so much! I'm very happy to find a new chapter of your story, you made my day.

Funny, your Alexander is truly something, I have never imagined him as such a seducer, but you have a great point, he had a lot of charm. Ohhh, this was great "Resisting him was like using a nutcracker to break a diamond. Absolutely impossible"

You made me laugh with this: "Alexander would flirt the whiskers off a dead kitten if it meant building up his ego"

I like a lot how you fit Alexander's story into the future, I specially like that you included his half brother because is really rare to read about him.

Maybe someone could think that Alexander was nuts for trying to kill his brother after destroying his copy of the Illiad, but I completely understand him, I would have done that too.

"Hephaestion would be attending school with me! My head was immediately filled with ideas of elaborate schemes on how I would conquer his heart and make him mine" I can see Alexander thinking this

Oww! I like how they met And Hephaistion didn't to whom he was talking, that was priceless.

"Do you know Alexander Argead?" he scoffed, and continued. "I don't either; but he sounds like he'd be a very sad person" I smiled reading this :D

You did a great job!

You are sooo cruel! You have a master piece here and you don't write :( But I understand completely about the writers block, its horrible...but i truly hope you can finish this, it's such a good start for a great story.

Oww! how cute first encounter between Alexander and Hephaistion...maiden, poor Phai

You have such an original way of start telling the story So, this reporter is writting Alexander's bio? How interesting.

I laughed like an idiot with this: "He appeared to me like one of those handsome, well built men who were usually on the cover of one of my wife's hidden erotica novels" Because my best friend once bought a novel like this and the cover was hilarious _

I forgot to tell you in my previous review, I don't know why, but when I read about the epidemic I remembered this movie: Repo the Genetic Opera XD

Here I am, as I said

Wow! You truly know how to capture the readers attention since the beginning, once I started to read I couldn't stop.

How cool! Alexander is as powerful as the president, great!

Owww! This chapter is sooo emotional

Of course I review, this is a very, very intriguing story to me, and I like the way you portrayed those well known historical characters in modern times. Please, don't let us wait for your next update, for I can't wait to read about the meeting of the two of them. I've a feeling it could be a very peculiar description.
