Now that was cool! I love Zak/Jarlaxle backstory. Gotta wonder what happened there. The fight was really well done too. I especially loved the image of Jarlaxle disappearing and Zak falling to the floor. Very fun!

Indeed. Jarlaxle has an intersting way of keeping friends.

You somehow pick the little moments that epitomize a character. Wonderful job on the conversation and choreography and the interesting juxtaposition and duality both in Jarlaxle's situation and disposition! Rather interesting too, considering rumours of a Zak-centric series on the release!

This one was nice! I have the impression everybody got interested in the relationship between Jarlaxle and Zaknafein, and most of the time, it's compared with the one with Artemis.

Anyway, you make Zaknafein a new character, I mean, keeping on track with Salvatore's, but with feelings and behaviors that actually match his "old" identity. I don't know if what I'm saying makes any sense...

Loved it, all the same!

Thank you oh-so-very much. I have been burning with curiosity ever since the books mentioned some past friendship (and betrayal) between Jarlaxle and Zaknafein, my two favorite drow. Besides this fic and A Friendship Betrayed (my own fic), I haven't read any stories regarding said friendship between the two. This was a breath of fresh air. So, thank you again for writing on a topic I've been starved for.

Salaam alaikum,

Drow Elf
