Excellent work, a real pleasure to read. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us!

This is, possibly one of the most well written, engaging stories I have ever read. The characters are easy to empathize with and the situations are intriguing. Many authors use romance as the hook and meat of a story and I was thrilled to realize that while it was a part of the tale, the story was bigger than that.
I actually cried at one point, because the characters are so real and lovable. This is an excellent fic. Thank you for this.

Really, I actually never write a review (bad on me!) But I really had to write something for you.
This is my favourite fanfiction story ever, and I've even read it twice! I read it mostly in the bus commuting to my university and the second time it took me two months of happy busrides.
I really want to say that I adore your writing style and your characters, the way the develop and react. I love Caius. I love Alora and Calla, and everyone else too. You've done a great job writing this, and I want to let you know that even though you've finished it, it's still very much appreciated!
It would be nice if you were to finish the sequel too. At least you've made me curious to read your other stories!
Much love, e-sidera

Okay, so I had to comment on chapter 2 because it seems like I already commented on every other chapter out there.
I just reread this. And just like the first time, I loved every second of it.
And I have to say - though I'm fairly sure it happened the first time around - I wept like a baby when Calla died. I was crying for the last several chapters. My face is snotty and my sleeves are soaked. Thanks for that.
That being said, HOLY CRAP, UPDATE THE SEQUEL.
That is all.

I like how the Nereverine is reffered to as Nerevar.

A fascinating, well done first chapter.

Last week, I got a craving for an Oblivion fanfic, and since I already read and enjoy your Dragon Age fanfics, I figured I would try this one. At first, the sheer amount of chapters seemed a little daunting, but before too long, I was hooked.
Of course, having never played Morrowind (I tried a few times, but just couldn't get into it; I'm going to give a second chance now that I've heavily modded it, and upgraded the meshes and textures), having never played Morrowind, I was slightly confused at first, but you wove a tale so compelling that I kept reading, chapter after chapter. I soon fell in love with Alora and Darius, and just had to know the rest.
I loved how you carefully started building up their relationship, with the feelings they had buried for so long starting to surface; the friendship between Calla and Alora was also masterfully done. There was a very strong emotional engagement on my part: I squealed with gushing girlishness when Darius and Alora stayed at the cabin in the mountains, I cried when Verity died, I held my breath when Alora was held captive in the Cheydinhal sanctuary, I bawled when Delyn was born...
It was also very smart of you to take all the different storylines (Main quest, Knights of the Nine, etc) and not have them all done by the same person, because let's face it, it's fun in the game, but it's completely unrealistic. I particularly loved that you gave Brennan the role of the Divine Crusader (of course, I wasn't too scared for him, since I'd already been spoiled by the plug-in, but that's not your fault! ) ).
The story was very cleverly named as well, "Between Times". It just has so many meanings: the times between day and night, of course, that was obvious, but also between eras, for Alora, that odd time between womanhood and motherhood...
It's very difficult for me to sum up in a single review everything that I adored so much in your story, but I really wanted to congratulate you on writing such a beautiful, captivating story. Without a doubt, this is one story that will not only be a favorite, but that I will carry with me for a long time. Thank you.
And I'll never see Applewatch quite the same way, that's for sure.

I'm really, really liking this story.
Normally, I stay away from game fandoms because rpg canon is by definition self insertion, and any character who makes it to endgame will be pretty damn sue-ish. I love your Alora and Amell* because of the depth you give them. It would be tempting (though wholly uninteresting) to have your level 40 maxed attribute hero bulldozer every problem that comes up. But this is wonderful - plottiness and characterisation and touches of realisim because yes, you will get sick if you live in a sewer.
Anyway, onwards with the story!
(here via AO3, where I haven't been able to comment for some reason)

I love your writing style, you had me in tears at points...
Beautifully written, I'll check out some of your other fics -
| MyHeartIsObsidian chapter 8 . 11/13/2009
I am aware of that I don't review every chapter... still as I read this far... my general impression is a wonderfully written story :D in fact, you could be a professional writer if you wanted :P
Once again, have a nice day (or evening)
| MyHeartIsObsidian chapter 1 . 11/11/2009
I must say... you have a sharp talent here ;D
The writing is most delicate well done. My vocabulary doesn't find anything more that can praise this piece of art any more...

First off, let me say THANK YOU for this amazing story. I discovered it maybe a week ago and read the whole thing through in a sitting. It was that good.
I have no real critiques at the moment; maybe if I think about it for a while I can come up with some areas to improve, but I think you did an exceptional job. What I like the most about this story is your superb characterization. Every character has his or her own unique voice, and they are all clearly articulated. I generally don't like stories with female main characters, as they tend to be Mary Sues (i.e. author chooses male character, author inserts self as main female character, kicks $$ and takes names, gets the guy, and generally is awesome), but Alora is a real person with real strengths and weaknesses. I really like the fact that you made it realistic. And by far, my favorite part of the story is your take on the Hero of Kvatch, Calla - probably the best-written character of any story I've read on this site, and one of the best I've read ANYWHERE. And I read a lot. I've probably read literally over five thousand fanfics, most epic length, in their entirety, and probably as many published fiction, and this is one of the best of either that I've read. Eagerly anticipating the next.
I may come back and give some tips for improvement after I've digested the story a little more, but for now, all I have is praise.

You can't end a story with a cliffhanger!
Oh you evil evil thing.
| Jessica Marsh chapter 111 . 11/3/2009
God, you made me cry when you said all that about Calla. But I'm so happy you're going to continue with Delyn. If any of us are lucky, he'll be a lot like mama.
