Forgive me for being one of those late reviewers... I just got back into the fandom.
I *love* 1sentence, because they are, by definition, clever as hell. Honestly, I'm amazed at how seamless the flow of ideas is from one topic to another...
A few errors here and there with spelling, grammar, etc. but I was far from bothered. I'm particularly fond of Birthday, Quarrel, Sorrow, Sordid, and Valiant. Also Balcony, although it took me for a spin before I finally got it (this is my genius at work)... and Blessing is great, and Burning, and Quitting is so cute... okay, you know what, all of them are good.
Long live Lizzy, Karin/Nicolai, and all other things magnificent!

Gah... Wonderful, just wonderful. Amazing how much emotion one sentence can envoke!
#30 is my favourite. I know, "logically", it can't work since I doubt it crossed anyone's mind to collect Nicolai's body while escaping Mt. Fuji... and that Yuri was unconscious several days after that... but still. This one is heart-breaking. Love it to death.
#2 is great because I like to think Nicolai's mother is the real-life mistress of the Tsar (Mathilde... something. Seriously, she exists!). This was before he married Alexandra, but the mistress was a ballerina, and doesn't that just explain Nicolai's graceful moves
And the cruel juxtaposition of #49 and #50? Genius. Oh man, I just wanna collect Nicolai in m'arms and hug him to death. 'Course, he's a complete bastard and will likely try to use me against myself or something like that but... argh. Nicolai needs a cuddle. T_T

Wow. I was skeptical at the fomat at first, but after the first one I couldn't stop reading. ;) It's amazing how just one sentence can make the imagination go wild and fill in the blanks to create a wordless but full story. You did a great job with making such stories; I thought that #30, " “Why am I doing this?” Yuri demands but Karin says nothing, just waits for him to get back to digging Nicolai’s grave", was the best, probably since it wasn't canon.
... And of course I must say I was entertained by the sexual innuendo of #12 and #8, as well as the not-so-subtle #6; it's much more interesting to read of these perspectives from Nicolai considering yeah, he's a Cardinal. ;P All in all, this was great, makes me want to try out this format myself. And thanks for brightening my day with NxK, too! :D

XD Dude, I'd hit that too. Mwahahaha! Behold the hotness that is Nicolai. _ Ooh, I really loved this installment. The way you described the situations were so tantalizing. It makes me wish this was a whole story instead of just short sentences. :)

So sweet. I am glad Anya and Kuro were able to find their if not happily ever after, and ever after after all.

Seriously man, this fic had my blood racing all the way to my cheeks, pwahaha.
Prease tu continue :D

Hehe, I really liked this segment, especially the sentence where it talks about Karin giving up her virtue to Nicolai instead of Ben. XD I can't wait for the KurAna sentences! But I hope they don't have a sad ending like Karin and Nicolai did here.

Your Nicholai and Karin always remind of a shot of whiskey. Burns your throat, blinds your eyes, and all the might-have-beens whisper in your wake.

You make me want to play the game again. I swear some of these are so beautiful that they are almost worthy of being haikus.

Read about the first half dozen and stopped. Why? Layout may be fine for LJ (which I doubt) but here is it presented disjointed. What's with the silly numbering system?
Challenges are all well and good, but this doesn't seem to be producing anything coherent. No complete sentences, no complete thoughts. It felt, to me, like I sat watching you sweat a fever in hospital and the sentences were your muttered dreams.

Aww, these were sweet. You're good at these one-sentence stories. I can't wait for your KurAna installment.
