What a shame that this story appears to have been discontinued! It has been an excellent read; the plot is gripping, the characters are wonderfully written. I have enjoyed it immensely, and I'm sorry to see I've hit the end of the finished chapters. Awww :(.

Wow. I haven't played Phantasy Star for a few years besides for IV but I feel like I have to go back and play them all over again. I love how you tied in the previous games into this story. It's very believeable.
I sorta remember fighting Siren in Phantasy Star III so wouldn't his appearance in this story not make sense? I maybe wrong since I haven't played it since it came out for Sega Genesis.
Anyways I plan on continuing on and enjoying your story.

Your interpretation of the Phantasy Star IV characters is quite intriguing. The premise of "Siren's Way" is also highly original, offering some backstory to both PSI and IV. I'm enjoying it enough to forgive you for allowing poor Rune to be maimed in that fashion. Hope you update soon.

I haven't left a review in quite a while. I'm always overjoyed when you update and ripping my hair out when you end in a cliff hanger~
It's always a rare treat when someone can write a good action fanfiction and you are by far one of my favourite writers for that reason. Waiting patiently to see what happens to Rune and the others. :3

Too lazy to log in. _ And I'm back up to speed. And still unable to think of useful things to say, other than good, good, more, more! _

Hee hee, Wren's got some falling to do... No monstrous squids to save him, though. _ *Happy brain death*
| Skylark Starflower chapter 23 . 4/16/2008
Since my brain has been on strike pretty much all day, there's not much I can think of to say about this that's coherent. But I still like it. _ I go read next chappy. Whee!
| Skylark Starflower chapter 22 . 4/16/2008
I'll log in some other time. _ Anyway, aw, no killy Demi, I like Demi. Siren's a jerk. *Kicks Siren in the butt, and then kicks Wren for good measure* Hee hee. _ Good stuff, whee! Me go read more now.

(Given the trouble I had getting here in the first place, I think it safer if I don't try to log in to do this. _)
Ya know, I just found Warren rather creepy in this chapter. I dunno if that's what you were going for or not, but that's the way I saw it. I mean, I still like him, but I dunno. Hee hee. Oh well. _ Still, good stuff! Me likey! More, more!

Now that I've more time, perhaps it merits a greater explaination of what I enjoyed in this chapter (as such seems all I can knowingly relate).
Foremost, we finally see some elements of both android model seperation (and not just given personal history effects) and interplay of paradoxical general prioritization and undercurrents of of duty/individual limitations. Also, flaw for flaw or trait for trait, we can now see with some active clarity the outcomes of character interaction and choice.
The punishment exacted upon Chaz is cruel, but naturally suiting given both his reactions and the embodied knowledge of Warren. The odd or counterintuitive nature of Warren is a characteristic I appriciate seeing; clearly he is a character of strong potential. I would say so also of Chaz, in the sense that he still has much to learn, but at this point I reserve judgement on the issue of his survival... Alternatively, Mieus is seeminly a sort of opposition to such measured (though different) skillsets as Warren and Chaz'. I wonder at how (or whether) she will change due to impacts on her character - clearly, ones which would have to take other forms than what could have an effect on others. Being of such a singular, tenuous sort of focus, along with possessing a furious reactivity, there remain elements of chaos to be explored.
Lastly, the involvement of such abilites as the human(oid) characters possessed in Phantasy Star can be difficult to work around depending on the sort of writing style, mechanation, and realism/relativity one wishes to implement. (This latter comment is merely a statement, not a criticism per se.) The nature by which one subconsciously judges the finer laws of a story's universe can be damningly important to the flow of acceptance of story events. Doubtless, a tricky matter to implement.
I look forward to more of your great work.

Is it wrong for me to giggle so as I read about Chaz being mutilated in such a fashion? ...probably, but oh well. Mwee hee hee! _ Still looking forward to the next installment.

Yet again, another chapter, and one also written well. Enjoyable. I question what extent of implied parallel and event machination you have put to use... All will be revealed in time, I am sure, whether through subsequent chapters or your own indirect revelation.
Time is short for me, but I see you still keep the chapter sections within limits of the primary individual's characterizations - ever a welcome expression. For the moment, I'll not speak of machinations of writing - therein I am no expert, and to reiterate so utterly what one already knows is useless.
Still, there are a few implications within the story which I am curious of, but for now I've too little time. There are edges of chaos and chance, personality and intuition (or that which is so indifinable and ephemeral as to bridge vistas); such simple matters of regard.
Again, my thanks. Reading is always welcome.

I see, hasn't quite gone to hell yet, but I'm sure next chapter will. Looking forward to that. Mwee hee hee hee! _ Good good, more more! _
| Skylark Starflower chapter 18 . 11/30/2007
Well, that was amusing. _ Everything gonna go to hell in the next chapter? Hee hee. There was something I wanted to say, but I can't remember what it was now. Oh well. I remember now! Whister is cute, and I dunno why, but the way you discribed him kinda reminds me of a Dalek, only a lot less deadly. Hee hee! Still, good stuff. More! _ Whee!

I would just like to say that I've enjoyed reading this story up to this point and I'll be really sad when it's ended. Seriously, this story is very well-written and very interesting.
Keep up the good work and please update!
