Reviews for The Sunny Wall

This was so beautiful. I was absolutely speechless after reading this. There were many things I loved about this story. I think there's so much I can't even cram it into this review!

I must say that I have never read such a decent, excellent, humanizing portrayal of Cassander. He is usually portrayed as someone who is purely evil who hates Hephaestion with every fibre of his being. I really loved the way you portrayed him. He now seems such a likeable character. I think there needs to be more Cassander love in the world!

I also liked your portrayal of Hephaestion. I have no idea why but it just seems really different.

I enjoyed the friendship between Hephaestion and Cassander. It's just so original and interesting. I also liked the way that Cassander perceived the relationship between Alexander and Hephaestion.

Lastly, I have to say that I really did enjoy the funeral. Poor Alexander...I really do feel for him.

I really did enjoy reading this story so much. I can't wait to read more from you soon. I really enjoy your style of writing.

Oh this was just exquisitely perfect! Such a humanizing tale for Cassander. I was, of course, very amused by The Perfect One - Hephaestion, the Athenian playboy. And Alexander? Swooning and allowing himself to be ravaged. Simply delicious. But more than that I loved the moments between Hephaestion and Cassander, the humbling of Alexander into an unprecedented apology, and the reasoning behind the waning of H/C's friendship. It makes perfect sense, and is a refreshingly novel aproach.

Lastly, the funeral itself - just very well done, right down to the last line, 'Goodbye, Perfect One.'

I bow to your genius,

Hey Moon,

What a delicious story! I like your Cassander and the perspective he brought to the Alexander and Hephaestion relationship.

I keep forgetting to ask you... you mentioned a fanzine sometime a while back, can I get a link?

Waiting eagerly for the next moon71 Alexander installment!

Although I personally don't have any sympathy for Cassander and don't share your opinion regarding him, I liked this history very much. I liked your Hephaestion - strong, confident, charming and loyal to his friends and liked to see that Alexander's love for him stayed strong and true along the years.

A wonderful story which I enjoyed very much. Although it speaks of Heph's death, a most sad affair, it still had a lightness and hope to it.

I love how you protrayed Heph..beautiful, confident, determined and cocky, a born siren, yet also friendly and generous with his love and caring, and loyal to his friends. And, Alexander's reaction to him was amazing as they formed their eternal bond.

It was sad that Cassander and Heph allowed their friendship to drift apart. Thanks for sharing such a lovely fic which was poignant, amusing and sweet. Eager to read more from you soon.
