| Guest chapter 35 . 4/15
Just wanted to let you know how much I'm loving this. I only came across it recently, and I ended up binge-reading the story within a few days. As much as I love the plot, I'm most captivated by how you've handled the characters. Usually in multiple POV fics, there'll be one or two characters I care about more, and I'll focus on their stories and skim the rest. Here, they're all interesting.
Very well-done. Thanks for the brilliant fic.
| E-Dantes chapter 35 . 3/16
I can't believe it's been years since the last time I read a DP fic, and more incredible is the fact that, when I started reading this from the begining since your resurection, I find myself still smiling and getting excited like an idiot. Now I remember why this was my favorite story and why it was so frustrating when the hiatus was a fact. Sadly, the responsible adult that I'm now can't run to read and review the instant a chapter comes to my mail, ergo my delayed comment.
A lot to say! The meeting with Tucker was one of the things I was dying to see. So far he's been the more distant from the Dan that Sam and Jazz -even Danny, to some extent- know. I am surprised of the way Tucker decided to resolve the situation, and I think he must be really angry because what he did wasn't intelligent at all. He tried to take one of the most powerfuls ghosts in the world by himself, totally alone! What was he thinking? What make him think that he could trap Dan in the thermos? To be honest, I would had liked to see Tucker doing something more clever, maybe even getting to catch Dan, but in othe hand the fact that he took his cell with him with the conversation with Dan opens the posibility of him hearing it, alone, with cold head, and then having his conceptions shattered -hell, yes! And there is a thing I really love it in that chapter: the fact that Tucker was the one confronting Dan, directly; so far it had been the opposite, Dan trying to contact his loved ones. But not with Tucker. And another thing that made me open my eyes like plates was when he calls Dan a rapist and a murderer! It's true and of course he has very good reasons for not trusting Dan but still, it was intense! Way to go, Tuck! I was a little dissapointed that he didn't appeared in this chapter, btw, I hope we can see him soon. He seemed very shaken but I'm not sure about what -his reckless decision? What Dan told him about him and Vlad? I need to know!
I'm surprised to see that Sam's mom wants to see her married with Danny so soon! I mean, she's traditionalist and all but they're really young. And Sam didn't take therapy, not that her mom can know that but still, the idea of being naked in front of somebody, specially Danny, must be terrible.
Is nice to see that at least Dan is not alone in his not life. It was sweet to see Vlad worried about Danny's sad mood. But that conversation remind me that we really don't know how it was for Vlad to deal with his powers. As Sam said Danny had his friends but Vlad was totally alone, trying to understand something that wasn't his field of knowledge in the first place. That little peak in his past leave me wanting more ;)
Now, the question I've had since eons ago: are you planning on having Clockwork and Vlad in a conversation? A chat between those two written by you would be like making a dream come true! Seriously, you totally have to think about it! :D
Well, that's it, work calls. I hope you update soon? And by soon I mean in this life? Not that I'm trying to make you feel guilty or anything! :3

I enjoyed the last two chapters a lot! X3

I- I did it! I finished it! And you've updated it too! I thought I was going crazy when chapters went up from 34 to 35.
Welp, this was an excellent time I've had. I've gotten absolutely no shit done at my house, as a result, but it was still time well spent. I had forgotten a great deal apparently, about the story, and am glad I sat down to reread it. Somehow I had even considered this story and the scene where Jazz meets Clockwork, to be from completely different fics. Now I don't have to futilely dig through the archives to find it. lol
Ha, Danny now has a deadline for proposing to Sam. This is great. :D A good writing device too since that means Danny's going to really have to step up his game. Things are getting very interesting right now.

Wait a minute, you mean you are not just only alive but you still remember this fic? Seriously?! OMG! Well, the only reason I haven't come back to read this in years is because it was painful to remember it didn't get an end. And now I can't help but think this may be a trap or a hallucination! Please don't play with my feelings.
Well, I haven't read the chapter yet because now I need to re-read everything to remember why this was my favorite fic in the whole world so I'll have a review later, but for now I just want to say I'm happy to know you're still in this dimension. Have a great week! ;)

HOLY MOLY, ZOOZA.
I haven't read this chapter yet, just wanted to pop in and say WHOA because your story update was the last thing I expected to land in my inbox this Sunday afternoon. I remember falling in love with this story in...my sophomore year of high school, based on the date of my very first review. Ten years ago, WOW! And while it pains me to read 15-year-old Me's sophomoric gushing, I do remember exactly why I fell in love with your story all those years ago. A reread from the beginning is definitely in order before I get to this latest chapter. Good to have you back, Zooza.
P.S. - Funny story, but High School Me was also an avid archivist, and I had a habit of saving email conversations and meaningful messages from back then. When I first saw this in my inbox I was curious and checked my old external hard drive...I have 15 different HTML files of our conversations saved that I completely forgot about. Hah! I also still have the earlier version of that fanart I'd been working on for you (the one where the almost-finished version got accidentally erased)...and to be honest, I still get a bit annoyed at myself when I think about that SNAFU. I've neurotically saved and backed up all my computer work ever since. Lesson learned!

Holy SHIT I'm so happy this is here again. Okay, first of all, I haven't actually read the new chapter yet, I want to first reread a bunch on it so that I can appreciate it in its true, full glory. This is one of my longtime favorites, and I always did appreciate how you handled the characters so well, particularly Vlad. I never gave him too much thought until this story.
It's amazing, I was just talking to a friend last night, who also writes her own fanfiction, about how it's pretty natural for stories to be left alone and picked up again much later. She's insanely busy, and worries about posting fics that she has not fully completed, because she doesn't want to leave people hanging for an eternity and lose all her readership. Like I said, this is pretty common though with fics and many people are used to it, and you're bound to gain new readers anyway since updating bumps you to the top of lists.
I can't seem to find a way to check when your last update was, I just know it's been some years, how long has it really been? I want to share the time-span with my friend so that, hopefully, she won't be so worried.

Well I'm reading your story and I'm glad you updated it, you know? Your story was one of the first stories in English that I read and loved, but I had not dared to follow it because I thought you would never update again, thanks for showing me the contrary

I will not abuse the caps lock button, I will not abuse the caps lock button, I -will not- abuse the caps lock button . . . Suffice it to say I had to suppress a literal squeal of delight at the notification of this story being updated.
I am so happy that you're picking this up again! I'm still reading! Thank you!

I've read this story over and over again, and I still enjoy it in its entirety. I love your characterizations and the interactions thereof (and Nathaniel is adorable), you make them all understandable and true to the originals. I understand how you can't (and maybe at this time won't) update this work for a long time, if ever. And that is okay. While I'm sad to not be able to see this story continue, I appreciate it for what it is, and I'm happy that you've brought it as far as you have.
You've made me laugh, cry, bite my nails and shake my head and sit back and think.
I want to properly convey my enjoyment for this work and my self-serving hope for its continuation, but I'll settle for saying that I admire your talent for writing, and I hope you still enjoy writing, whatever may be occupying your brain at this time.
I hope life treats you well, and I wish you the best in it. Thank you for the wonderful story!

It's nathaniel. I hate this world. I hate it so much with all my heart. I hate the Jews with all my heart . I'm really honestly starting to believe the conspiracies about the holocaust being a lie. It's really weird that Hitler was a vegetation and banned hunting. This battle has gone beyond this earth you at beyond. I have supernatural instincts you know. An alien invasion is coming. And their coming to kill. It won't be long

I love the story, if you write stories like you live in real life you will never suck, even after getting very old and having back pains you will never suck! Because the story is epic, I love it.

Sam's grandma was already her dad's mom... I think... I love the story.
| Cindy M 19 chapter 15 . 9/20/2015
I love it, the kicks was a little funny, but Danny reaction to Dan saying about destroying buildings was too much XD

You know that? I read this story some time ago and wanted to read it again, but I forgot the title, only remembering the 'Cata' part so I tried to Search using Cataclysm and Catastrophe as title. I only found it because of the Clockwork part in the summary XD I love the story.
