|Reviews for Tamers Requiem, Book 1: Hazard's Sorrow|
| mangagirl18 chapter 36 . 11/9/2013
This story story and it's sequels are possibly the most well written Digimon fics I've ever read, and that's saying something. I adore the character development, and Noriko is a wonderful character.
I'm currently on book three (I thought I'd already reviewed, but I guess I was so into the story that I forgot eh heh) and I love how you're hinting at the other worlds, and how Ryo's past is close to catching up with him.
I'm normally NOT a Rukato fan being firmly in the Ryuki and Tajuri camp myself, but this is so well done, that I find myself falling for the couple anyway, but only here.
Thank you so much for posting, and have a great day!

Amazing story seriously you can't begin to imagine nor can words describe the awe I am in of your writing style or story. It is fantastic and I can't wait to read more. My heart was broke when Guilmon died and shattered when BlackGuilmon was created. I felt the pain of the characters, I felt there hope, and I felt their love for their digimon and Takato.

Okay, first off: I am so sorry that I haven't reviewed in so long! I reviewed last year in February and never got back to it. I had gotten a new job, and I I couldn't seem to find any time to come on this site and update or review other's work.
I had to actually go back and read the first chapter to remember which story this was and why I liked it so much! Anyways, there are run-ons here and there in the first two chapters, the first one having the majority. While there were times were run-ons fit with the situation, there were also times where it just simply made the sentence structure strange and hard to understand. There were a few times that I had to re-read the lines over and over again to understand what you were saying.
However, you are emotionally perfect! While you may not be J.K Rowling or Lisa Scottoline, you are definitely emotionally there. That is not a bad thing. It's like Usher in comparison to Luther Vandross-both are very talented singers while the latter has a much better voice, Usher can emote like no one's business while using the nice range he does have to give him such a successful career.
That is not saying that I view you as sub-par, by any means. Your writing style is beautiful in it's own right. Emotions, personally, are some of the most important parts of writing. It is the difference between feeling what you write and merely describing situations yet emotionally distant from the reader. Your style is more similar to J.K Rowland and Lisa Scottoline whom are both emotional writers especially the latter whom rather than just tell a story, they make you feel the story.
I do like the contrasting tones of the two chapters. One feels more euphoric and the other like a chimeric nightmare that is actually reality. The contrasting tones work well for the ending line of the first chapter which claimed that the day had started off so nice, too...
Everyone also seemed in character.
I do have one question which has nothing to do with this story, in itself, but does Tamers ever explain why the digimon left on the finale but in the specials (movies), it seems like they had never left at all.
Also, lol... I forgot that TK had written about Digimon and thus why it had become so popular in the story of Tamers... which reminds me, I did liike the irony that you mentioned of how the kids sent to the digital world often killed the digimon in that world. Very ironic.
By the way, I updated my Pokemon/Digimon story if you want to check it out...
Anyways, I'll review again later... I have college work to do today and tomorrow along with watching my nephews so it'll probably be tomorrow when I'll review again.

I'm sorry, but I can't get into this. The premise is preposterous. Guilmon digivolved into Megidramon *once* (and had a damn good reason for that) and by the time line of the story, that was a year prior, or nearly so. Then, for no apparent reason, Lucemon decides all by himself to take out Guilmon *after* he saved both worlds, *despite* not digivolving into Megidramon since. What about the Holy Beasts? Does it seem likely that they would tolerate this? The destruction of an ally so valued that they sent Dobermon to bring to the Tamers the ability to bio-merge in the real world? Really?
And just where the hell did Lucemon come from? By the time _Tamers_ takes place, he'd been destroyed already. If they had that much trouble with Lucemon, the Tamers should have contracted the job out to Takuya and Koji, as they're the experts in Lucemon elimination.
145,059 words to tell a tale that can be summed up: Lucemon kills Guilmon. Takato feels real bad about that. The End. Incredible.

Guilmon... Takato... Wow, I gotta keep reading! XD
| Soulfire72 chapter 3 . 2/18/2013
That's pretty sad, Guilmon disappearing like that. This is after the end of Tamers, right? How come Yamaki and Hypnos are up and running again? From what I remember, they were shut down.
Though, I have to admit, I agree with Lucemon a little. Gallantmon is no dragon, and a Royal Knight is almost the complete opposite of one. Still don't know why the creators went with this whole theme of dragon - royal knight. Makes no sense to me.
| MitzvahRose chapter 7 . 1/24/2013
Makes me wonder about Lucemon and almost feel bad for the little guy. Almost.
So he's not the Demon Lord, huh? Speaking of which, I wonder if they'll have a role... heck, if Impmon will have a role. Plus, a good chunk of the partners hadn't been mentioned, and Suzie only once. But, that's really to be expected, considering.

...Just... beautiful and cruel... w-well done... I actually cried a little in real life after reading this chapter.
| MitzvahRose chapter 5 . 1/24/2013
*Sobs, joining Jeri and Takato, not able to do much more aside from read*
| MitzvahRose chapter 4 . 1/24/2013
Wow, again, wow. The ending, from how stressful the chapter was, actually made me laugh. I dunno what to think of this one, other than to keep reading... AND DANG JUSTIMON! *Glares at said boy and dragon*
| MitzvahRose chapter 3 . 1/24/2013
W-wow... L-Lucemon is...he... Oh...
| MitzvahRose chapter 2 . 1/23/2013
Haha, adorable, hilarious, sweet, well written... any of these could describe this chapter! It's to bad what's about to occur... :'(

A cliffhanger! A god damned cliffhanger! Anyway while I suspected that one way or another Lucemon wouldn't be destroyed, I had assumed BlackGuilmon would be snapped into his senses but oh well, it seems like Shibumi may have succeeded where Takato failed. Then again it would probably be best, if Takato does get another partner, that it not be Guilmon especially given Lucemon chaos mode that would see to it our favourite reptile remains an extinct species.
Maybe I should get a hold of Takuya and the gang and tell them they've got another Lucemon they need to kill. But just as you said, revenge never solves anything, it just makes it worse. For a prime example look at Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto. Well I can't see Lucemon never getting involved again but where does he plan on going now that he has the form of a demon lord?
A bit disappointed with the ending but otherwise great story. Big thumbs up and can't wait to read the next one.

Oh man! Something tells me this is going to go horribly wrong, though I hope it works, I doubt it will. Even if it does bring Guilmon back, wouldn't Lucemon try to kill him again. Speaking of Lucemon I wonder if he will end up the partner of one of those kids who saved him or if he will be destroyed before that can happen.
This is going to be interesting for sure. We have Takato trying to bring Guilmon back, Lucemon who will do anything to prevent Megidramon from ever rising again and the other Tamers who would attack Lucemon on sight. A lot of unreasonable individuals involved here and poor Takato is caught in the crossfire.
Really hope this story ends on a lighter note than it started. Reading on.

Great fight, Lucemon got his ass severely kicked. I was rooting for Rika to stab Lucemon when Justimon grabbed her staff. Needless to say I called Ryo a certain word I don't care to repeat in a review. Thanks to him Lucemon has most likely survived and seeing as he wants to destroy viruses he'll go after Impmon next, damn you Ryo, you should have let Rika kill Lucemon.
All this because of a single incident that in all likelihood was never going to happen again. Damned Megidramon incident. Anyway, you are great at making me feel bad for the characters. I hope they can find a way to bring Guilmon back to life. By the way even if Gallantmon did mode change, Lucemon would have given him hell though I see your point. Chaos Mode would beat him though, in true demon lord fashion. I'd love to see Lucemon Chaos Mode vs Beelzemon Blast mode if I didn't think Beelzemon would get slaughtered. Then again this Lucemon seems to be considerably than his Frontier counterpart so who knows?
Can't wait to read more.
