YES! I did jump the gun and should have waited for the next chapter to review! It made me SO MUCH happier! I am still unhappy that he even considered it but YES! THANK YOU!

It has been almost ten years since you've finished this but I felt a compelling desire to review regardless. While I have been enjoying your work very much, I am actually writing this because I have a bit of a problem with some of what is written (sorry).
I'm guessing it's a plot point that they don't actually have sex until after they get married in the last chapter? However, it drives me a little nutty that Joren decides to 'claim' her in order to achieve this. I am a firm believer that a woman's body is her own and that she should make such decisions herself as she wishes (with full disclosure to those involved). I don't know yet if Joren is about to go through with it but I find it quite... misogynistic? chauvinist? and extremely aggravating that he thinks he can own her. In my mind, I think it would be far better for him to decide to respect her enough and trust her enough to make her own decisions and CHOOSE not to be with anyone else (in line with the implicit understanding that they are exclusive - because there also is nothing wrong with other arrangements).
Anyway, with that off my chest, I can happily return to reading your wonderful, evil tormenting of the two of them. I never imagined while reading PotS that I would enjoy reading a Kel/Joren fic so much! Again, sorry for the complaint.

This is really good! Super long.. But really good! I love your idea for using the quotes as plot movers! Good job!

I'm super glad that you addressed the thing where J was aware that V wanted to do terrible things to L and didn't seem to give a crap. It made me want to falcon punch him in the throat.

i have this fantasy that somewhere down the line, one of kel's sons kisses a daughter of neal and turns this into a three generation thing when they realize they are like siblings also.

This story was absolutely amazing. I've always wondered how things would have been different if Joren really had been the only volunteer or if he had been the one chosen. The development of their relationship was realistic while stil gripping and the tension between them had me reading as fast as I could to see what happened next.
I'll be sharing this fanfic with my friends who also are fans of Tamora Pierce and her work for sure as well as adding this to my favourites:)
Again, amazing story and I'll be checking out your other work so see if you write for any other series I'm a fan of. _

I truly loved this story! I especially liked the view we got of the gods' interferences and guiding hands.

I haven't finished this yet, i'm only on chapter 7 or so, I just wanted to say I LOVE THIS. And by the way, it equal a little over 2, 400 page books. Amazing, right?
| LovingFanFiction chapter 71 . 2/4/2015

I've heard so many good things about this, and have finally found the time to start reading it! :)

Honestly, I kind of hope he still dies in the end. Like, this is a rewrite of the series, but he'll end the same way anyway. Or at least, if it follows the whole series, maybe he'll fall in sancra. But so far, he's just kind of sad- I've seen cases like him in real life, and... I don't know. it's sad. and infuriating. :/
But perhaps you'll turn his character around... it'd be OOC of him a bit, but it'd be nice to have some sort of decency to him if he's going to be around for a while. yknow?
I like it so far tho. I hope I will like the ending too-!

(Ah, I was joking about the all teens being morons thing, SOME are decent.)
...but only some. most have it on the brain. xD Ha!
Heehee, their pact is... *laugh* so nice of them, so nice *snicker* No, no, really, I shouldn't laugh. they're all trying hard. sister... xD heh.
Aah, they're all just under-exposed... they'll grow out of it. xD (unless they're OVER exposed, like Joren probably will be D:)

*snort* hormones. :P
Ahh, teens really get hit hard, huh... xD morons. the lot of them.
Frankly, Joren is getting just creepy! It's good that he's still acting pre-pubescent a little and not full-on raging hormones, but geez, his father- if Joren was in modern day society, he'd probably end up a player himself, or at least in deep shit... xO kinda sad. :/
