"I am starting to feel as if this story is a lost cause. Please tell me what you think, and honestly."
I like this story. Honestly. Looking forward to this story helps keep me sane. Honestly. :-)
Seriously, though. I really do like the character of Samantha, and I admit, I've gotten attached to her and I wanna know what happens. And I like your portrayal of Jacob and especially Leah. (The world of fanfiction needs more Leah, in my humble opinion. That character has so much untapped potential...) And I /love/ the way you've stuck together three characters who are supposed to be mortal enemies but end up working together and (I imagine) getting to know and respect each other. What can I say? I'm a sucker for stories about enemies who become friends. So I really, really like that aspect of the story. And the fact that all three of them are kind of disillusioned with the whole idea of love... I think that has potential, and I'm waiting to see if anything much happens there. Although I guess that has already come into play a little, with Leah helping out Jacob. And I really like this idea that BD was a made-up happy ending to a story that never really had a happy ending- it's creative, it makes more sense to me than canon, and now I'm curious to find out more about this alternative world. And I like how the whole set-up of the story allows you to poke fun at Twilight fans :-) And, most importantly... I'm still waiting for a camel to pop up somewhere. Kidding! Just kidding! If you can't work in the camel, that's totally okay; it's still an awesome story.
Have I given you enough reasons to keep writing it? Because if not, I have more :-) So, please, please, PLEASE keep writing!
So, about this chapter...
Samantha has a power, huh? Now I'm even more curious :-) Maybe... her ability to be self-sacrificing? That seems to stand out. *shrug* Just a guess.
I forgive you for the lateness of the chapter (which really wasn't that late, honestly, I'm amazed by how quickly you turn out chapters in general) if you forgive the lateness of the reply. :-) I read it a couple days ago, but had yet another midterm today that'd I'd been getting ready for the last couple days.
Aw, poor Samantha. I would be terrified too. And I like the way that Leah, sarcastic, rough-around-the-edges Leah, sticks up for her and tells Jacob he should apologize. Especially considering how Leah hasn't exactly been her friend in past chapters. Maybe underneath her rough exterior, Leah's starting to warm up to her... Same goes for Samantha- "there was a part of me that felt sad, disappointed almost to see them go." Even if Jacob did try to kill her for a few seconds. And the way their shoulders crumple when she says she's excited about leaving them behind. *smile* I love when people who are supposed to be enemies end up being friends. Have I mentioned this? After all that, I was a little surprised that Samantha honestly thinks they're going to be willing to kill her at the end of the chapter. I really can't see that happening.
And the whole "it's been /days/ since I had a shower" rant made me laugh. So did Samantha thinking about how she used to have nightmares about spiders in her room. :-) Hmm, now who does that remind me of?
"I knew that I was overreacting, but the knowledge never stopped me from freaking out." Good line, and very true most of the time.
Please survive the school battle long enough to keep writing! If you don't survive, I'm gonna miss this fic. And you too of course :-) Good luck with midterms!

| nekuranekomegami chapter 14 . 10/15/2008
This was so awesome!
I can't wait for you to update!
| CassiexLynn chapter 14 . 10/15/2008
Ugh, so sorry it took me so long to read this. I've been slacking off on all of my stories, and this is the one that I'm making sure I read first:)
Firstly, keep writing. This story isn't a "lost cause", I'm already awestruck. I figured you'd go with your own version of Breaking Dawn, but I love how you put in the concept of the story being a lie, a happy ending for Jake.
Just wow. You're such an amazing author, who else could have pulled off such a great story? Or even come up with this amazing of a concept.
I'd love to detail the things I liked, but I'm about half-asleep after a long day of school and I can't think straight. Sorry.
But I will say that I anxiously await the next chapter, no matter how long it takes me to read it:) This is one story that I will definitely make sure I read.

Again, I LOVE THIS STORY! I wish there were more likeit.
| The Duchess of Telmar chapter 14 . 10/15/2008
I really don't think Jacob is going to kill Samantha. He's not cruel and inhumane. He knows that she's trying her best to be good. It's taking an innocent life. She didn't even believe in this stuff, she didn't want it to happen.
I wonder why the Denali Clan left. Is it because the Volturi were afraid risking exposure because of the Twilight fans flocking?
I hope they're all okay.
I wonder what Samantha will do now...Will she become a nomad? I think Samantha would have made a great addition to the Denali Clan - if they can be found.
Great Chapter, Nikki!

you AREN"T aloud to stop writing this! it's really good and original. i love it update soon!
| LunaPuff chapter 14 . 10/15/2008
You're starting to feel as if the story is a lost cause? Are you insane? Do I need to put you in a cage with Samantha? This story is amazing, one of the bet I have ever read. I especially like the twist where the Denali coven vanished. Excellent touch. I can't think of a power for Samantha, but then again I'm exhausted as well. Ooh, I have an idea. When you reach 200 reviews, I will continue writing the story I had started over the summer and never posted. Then I will put up the prologue, which is already finished. Then, for every 15 reviews you get and every chapter you post, I will post another chapter. Hopefully that will be incentive enough for you to continue writing.

Hmm. I'm fascinated to see where this goes. Though I don't think they'll kill her now. I think Samantha is starting to get a little of the vampire mindset-cockiness, warewolves-are-ever-evil, things like that. Which is kind of sad, but hard to avoid I imagine. I can't figure out her power... Unless it's self-doubt, an extremely cynical personality, or inspiring jerks to find her. Haha. Er, I don't know what it might be.
Girl, you need to take care of yourself! Sickness isn't good. Really, your health comes before your writing, because without you, there IS no writing. Gosh, Nikki.
What do you MEAN you think this might be a lost cause? Snap out of it! It's an amazing story. It reminds me of the Turkey Bacon Club Toasted Sub from Arby's I just ate for lunch. (After picking out the onions.) You see it in the commercials: OH MY GOSH. You finally get it: So excited! First bite: YUMALICIOUS. Second bite: A very interesting layer of taste. Complex, delicious. Nearing the end: Does the goodness never stop? It's gone: Aww man, I ate it too fast even though it was rather large and extremely filling! An hour later: Still good. :D
(You should try it.) Anyway, what I was saying was, I love this story, and if you don't, Get Over It. Deal with it! Do a little snap, snap, Whachu Talkin' Bout Willis? And then tacklehug it, snuggle, and you're best of friends again. Good? Good. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a night of rehearsals to get ready for, and you have some sleep to get. Good night.

I'm hoping you hold true to your words, because with a cliffhanger THIS size, I may just attack my computer until it sprouts another chapter!
Are you going to kill her? PLEASE say no! I've a feeling Jacob and Leah will both say no. They've both grown attached, in some way.
The trust issues Samantha has are rather upsetting. I wish that she wasn't plagued by the Twilight universe, that she could be left alone to be a human. What you said about the spiders is exactly how I feel about them. I know it's not on me...but it feels like it's there!
Fantastic chapter, as always! And you don't need a beta - it was fantastic!
| Squalrus chapter 14 . 10/15/2008
