Wow, so cool. I wish u wrote more, it was so good!
Azure Teriques chapter 1 . 2/12/2009
It's really good. Soren is kept wonderfully in character and it's just really good overall. His past and how he met Ike, very nice.

Wow! I am impressed by this. It fits Soren's story perfectly. You forgot to capitaize a few things, but everything was good.

Drakon out -
Rose chapter 1 . 7/9/2007
It's very refreshing, finding a Soren story that doesn't have any slash in it. You did a great job :)
LittleLinor chapter 1 . 6/30/2007
Hehehe, I like this fic, it's awesome.

General fics are rare, good one even more so. And this one deals with the theme of Soren's brand in an actually rather delicate way. It's too easy to just make an angsty short oneshot about oh how horrible it's to be branded, but much harder to write Soren before he knew the real meaning of it. You also did realy well with him as a child.

Honestly I love this, you get a fave
Bharune chapter 1 . 6/7/2007
Very, very nice . I've been debating about what type of laguz runs through Soren's veins and, despite that he was raised in Gallia, I decided it simply must be raven.

Now I really want to start a Fire Emblem fic...
Runespoor chapter 1 . 6/6/2007
The timeline feels slightly iffy to me as well, but the writing is superb.
nothign to see here chapter 1 . 3/11/2007
Oh. My. GAWD. That must have been the most harshest thing I ever read. It was so harsh, that it was well-done. AND I LOVE SOREN!
R Amythest chapter 1 . 2/21/2007
I'm extremely fond of the style this is written in. It's as if it takes full advantage of punctuation to flesh out its flow.

Cliche topic? Yes. But I believe this is one of the better retellings - not laden down with needless description, not so bare as to be boring.

Also, very fortunately, you picked up on the bit of canon that Soren didn't know he was a Branded 'til mid-game. Well, sort of. He didn't know 'what' he was until then in this fic, anyway, so that works well enough. (I'm so sick of giving the same Soren-did-not-know-his-parentage-until-mid-PoR-gah lecture over and over...)

So, um.

... After writing massive 1100-word reviews for other fics, I think I've finally concrit'd myself dry.

There's nothing I find particularly flawed in this anyway. :P

gurl.from.damnation chapter 1 . 1/31/2007
...Wow, just wow. Probably the best story using this plot I have ever read.
thesocialretard chapter 1 . 1/31/2007
That was well written, your way to portray characters is beautiful. Something like that I've always tought of Soren's childhood. It was pleasant to read, thank you for that.
FlamingDoritos chapter 1 . 1/29/2007
Nice. VERY nice. I love your writing style...reminds me of Stephen King. And it's perfect. I...I'd like to request another chapter...but that might just be me. It'd be fantastic if you did, though. Amazing job with this. *favs*
Gaurdianangelzelos chapter 1 . 1/28/2007
Very good! Though very long, I am fully happy with this fic, though I must admit that I kind of wish that it would have ended on a happier note, like with Soren and Ike being all chummy and all, saying that they were best friends or something corney like that (no yoai though). You did a good job of finding out what Soren was like as a child. You can also catch small glimpses of Soren in the woman and the sage in their dialoge. I guess that's how Soren became so cold. But hey, he's still the most awesome sage in the game and we love angsty people. Again, great job. Hope to see more from you.
Aithne chapter 1 . 1/27/2007
You did fine job. There were a few grammar/spelling errors, but other than that the story itself was perfect. I like reading stories about Soren's background; it gives me new perspective on how his early life may have been lived. Also, just seeing how life's cruelty treated him makes me love him even more.
