1) The Sweeney Todd fandom most definitely has the room to grow. There is so much potential!
2) More! The what-if epics is what makes the world go round
3) Great story, I really really enjoyed it. I can't wait to read more stories by you in the future

I love this story! I really do _
As always, Sweeney needs to go a long way until he understands that the only woman for him is Nellie Lovett :) But as always, he get it, and thanks to you, I enjoyed it :)
Your writing is full of life, it kept me on the edge of the chair for the whole time I read this story :D
To be a good reviewer, I'll answer the two questions you asked:
1. Yes, I think that it has potential...I know a lot of people who hadn't watched ST yet, and I myself discovered it about two weeks ago (and I spent all the time reading fanfictions ;)), so I think that it still can bring people together, as every fandom should :)
2. It would be awesome from you to write more Sweenett, even that you already wrote a lot of it ;) Well, there is never enough of it, right?
Keep writing, whatever you are working on :)
P.S. For an unknown reason, I grin every time Sweeney use his friends on someone...am I weird? :D

I watched Sweeney Todd two days ago and love it. Since then, I've been looking for good fanfics, and yours is definately the best so far.
I loved how everything was so in character, and I could imagine this happening.
I'm glad that Sweeney Todd didn't fall in love over night and it took a while to get to that stage.
Thanks for writing such a great fic, especially for one of my first Sweeney Todd ones. 3

My God, I could write a full-length essay on this, I'm sure. Instead I'll just drop a short review.
I only recently watched Sweeney Todd for the first time, and by the third time (less than 48 hours later) I was completely bewitched. Of course, I immediately scoured FFN for good Sweeney Todd fics-but NONE, I tell you, NONE, could even come close to paying the proper tribute such a beautiful, heartbreaking tragedy deserved. Obviously I was looking specifically for Sweenett fics, but ALL of them were utterly unconvincing. They had dear Mr. Todd suddenly "realize" he had loved Mrs. Lovett all along, even though EVERYTHING HE'D DONE was for LUCY. They had him passionately kissing-or making love-with Mrs. Lovett, the woman he doesn't even acknowledge for most of the movie!
Oh, I noticed the tiny, maddening HINTS of Sweenett in the movie all right, but I need the freedom of fanfiction to give me the happy ending I wanted. With some credibility. And finally, finally closure comes in the form of your fic!
This story is stunning. A part of me wishes I had read it while it was still in progress; how fun it would have been to rejoice at every update, to respond to your polls, to be among that half-crazed mass of reviewers clamoring for more? Nevertheless, I'm glad I came across it when it was finished-the suspense would have been too much for me, and surely after a week of no updates I'd poison myself with arsenic.
That's not to say this story is perfect, I'm sure you realize. I had some issues with it. Your characterizations are perfect (thank you thank you THANK YOU for taking the Sweenett relationship SLOWLY), but there's something about your narrative style that made some of the would-be climactic/dramatic scenes too...light-hearted. Don't get me wrong, I'm awed that you made comedy and tragedy coexist so well in your story-I read this all in one sitting, and I literally either laughed or cried insanely for each chapter. But sometimes, I felt that the levity was inappropriate or out of place, like the way Mrs. Lovett killed Mrs. Sedgewick. Granted, you may have intended to treat that scene casually to show how similar Mrs. Lovett and Mr. Todd are, and how darkly flawed their characters are. You definitely succeeded. It just confused me sometimes, is all; I wasn't always sure how I was supposed to feel about a certain plot-twist or something.
Did I say short review? My bad. By the way, this story reminds me of Crime and Punishment, which hopefully makes sense to you if you've read it. It's certainly long, and it really delves into the tortured, desperate psychology of criminals/murderers (I'm thinking Raskolnikov). And, like Dostoevsky, you end with the theme of (total?) redemption through love. Cheesy, but ridiculously satisfying.

I absolutely love this story! I watched Sweeny Todd a couple of days ago and loved ms. lovett and decided to find fanfics of her and mr. t. They seem like such an odd couple but I think they go great together, just the right amount of crazy.
