| Eve chapter 20 . 5/11/2009
(can't be bothered trying to remember my ffnet password :))
Where do I start? The entire chapter was simply amazing! I love the way you write Elphaba and Fiyero and the family you have created for them. Your original characters are complex individuals, which is quite unusual in fanfiction, and not just carbon copies of their parents (a common mistake in ‘2nd generation’ fanfics).
I also like the way you’ve managed to fit several significant events into a single chapter, without it feeling crowded. Those significant events were very well written, a reader can really feel the emotion in them (don’t want to give spoilers in case new readers peek at the reviews first but I’m sure you know which events I mean)
The entire chapter was wonderful but I particularly like the very last scene and I can’t wait to read the sequel so get typing! ;)

Wonderful final chapter! I thoroughly enjoyed both this and the prequel; they were both marvelously written and SO incredibly heartwarming. The scene with Frex in this chapter was touching- really great idea! I'll be looking for anything you write in the future:D
| Eve chapter 19 . 10/29/2008
Definitely a sequel worthy of your first story, i love the family dynamics between Elphaba Fiyero and their children. Looking forward to the update! (and yay now we can actually talk about it and i'll know what's going on :))

This is your best chapter(s) yet! The writing is sublime and I love the characterizations! I also love that you had Glinda be the one to share the history. I loved the two scenes - one with Fiyero, Glinda, Elphie and Talissana and the other with Stavna and Gaiya sitting outside. Perfect, absolutely perfect.

I still read and love your stories. Hope you are well.

My appologies dear author for not reviewing sooner. I've enjoyed both of your stories so much! This latest chapter continues that enjoyment! I wait, with many others to see what happens next! Go Graiya go!

Very nice chapter. Poor Graiya. I feel so bad for her.
| Me again chapter 18 . 6/30/2008
Awesome chapter! I was so happy to come home from vacation to find an update!
I love the dynamics between the sisters, that's lots of fun to see. I like how Graiya's having this period where she's not perfect with them, I think it rings true and makes her even more believable as a person rather than just a character. Though the part with Simka broke my heart I liked that as well. And Elphaba is such a great mom! I love seeing her overcome her past in the way she raises her family. And the way she interacts with Graiya is just wonderful. I really liked the conversation she had with Fiyero as well. But shoot what a mean end to the chapter! Please update soon and don't leave me hanging off that cliff. And again I come bearing begging's and pleadings not to kill off either of them, I can't deal with that kind of heartbreak. Seriously.

| elphabathedelirious32 chapter 17 . 5/9/2008
Great characterization of the older girls!
Poor Elphaba...your Fiyero just needs a slap sometimes, but then he's amazifying. I love it. The time jump definitely worked well, too.
I'm glad you've brought this back! *glances guiltily at own neglected fanfics*

I love your stories. After finishing Curses and Emeralds, I began this one. Needless to say my eyes are a bit bleary, but the heart and mind are totally enthralled. Please update soon!
| Erikssecretlover chapter 17 . 4/27/2008
Well done! I love this chapter...it's so heartfelt. Can't wait for more.
