Great story. Thanks you for sharing.
I like how you don't focus on the usual characters.

Awesome fanfic, it was as good or better than any fiction I have read, and I read a lot. I have read your other Fall Out fanfic with Charon and Zen, also a wonderful read. Would look forward to more Fall Out writings if you would have the will to write them. Good luck in what you do in the future you will go far.

Nice story. I like the ideas! I think you portrayed all characters from the game really well. At least those that appear in the game. Not much more to say, actually. Great story. Gonna check if you wrote something on Charon already.

i stopped reading this when i got past your lore section...seriously "I've been a Ghoul for something like five years now." not a great way to get people attention in a story -.-

Your fic is the first I've read to completion. Its amazing and just plain awesome. I loved this one and I just might go to your profile to check out your other stories (which i really hope youve made others). All in all, amazing!

Damn that was awesome
Would absolutely love a sequel, but I have a feeling that it was supposed to end there.
I had a blast reading it though, you don't find many fanfics with Fawkes in them. :)
Thank you for writing it!

Ohhh man, I finished reading this in the dead of night while on vacation but I even made a note on my phone to review this because I was so affected by it - the ending was so touching that it made me tear up!
This story is beautiful. It's a wonderful and masterful depiction of relationships formed in the wasteland; it shows love, not the romanticised type, but pure and simple love, with individuals finding their places within each other. That is the best, most honest kind of love to me, and to be able to convey that in writing is no small feat!
The narrative was brilliantly done, as well; I particularly liked that Thistle had a reason for starting her journal at all, and that this reason was part of the events that happened during. The ending was perfect, and it was cool to see that the three of them are as safe with each other as they are in their protected, secret vault.
You have an exceptional way with words, to the point where the style and techinicality of the writing was no issue - it delivered the content in the smoothest way, if I'm explaining this properly. I was never yanked out of the story by a weird turn of phrase or character action - that is wonderful, too, by the way! You write characters like you ARE them. And you took a character like a Gary clone and fleshed him out completely and naturally. I am in awe.
The only thing I'd have to criticise would be your author's notes - not that they exist, but that I believe most of them would work as footnotes to follow the chapter; this is just a personal preference, but I was a tiny bit bummed to know what to expect in the chapter. That said, you were very good about not inadvertently spoiling yourself, and I did enjoy reading about your decisions and path of logic.
I really, really loved this story, and was very sad to see it finished. I'd love to read more about Thistle and Fawkes and Gary! Thank you for making 9 hours in a cramped back seat go by like nothing.

"Most of my fics don't have a larger "plot" other than the characters trying to stay alive. I do better with my original fiction, since I plan those out ahead of time, but the fact is that with fanfics I tend to write the whole thing based around one scene I want to write (which in this case was in Ch. 2 and 3) and sort of improv from there. I'll try to do better with the next one. ;)"
That's it! That's exactly what made your stories feel weird! The writing styles makes it feel like a subplot of an overarching adventure so when the story end after the subplot is over, it just feels so sudden! It doesn't stop me from absolutely loving your stories but it does feel frustrating to reach the end while expecting more :(

The whole story was captivating and the way you wrote it made me really care about what happened to the characters. This is a pretty well done fanfiction. Well done.
| StaminaRose chapter 25 . 8/20/2010
So you took the characters of a ghoul, a super mutant and a mad clone. then you managed to make them insanely interesting and relatable. Then you did gave an excellent reason for her to be writing all this stuff down and gave us the beautiful story of this vaults original dwellers. Just incredible. you really do impress me more with every story of yours i read. I just wish i get to the point where im this good at writing one day, i mean i have a few fans but im nowhere near this good and my stories are mostly just syrupy mush XD
i especially loved the power down terminal bit at the end, well done to you.
speak to ya later :D
| Vault108 chapter 1 . 2/13/2010
Bravo, I give you a standing ovation for this entire story. I'm so new to Fallout but already the game owns me fully. What you did in bringing the chara's to life was a job well done and then some. I couldn't stop reading tbh and I'm glad for the missed sleep FOR doing so.
I now want to start writing some Vault 108 fic. I'm so surprised no one really tackles this vault and the Gary's. To me, that's one of my fave aspects OF the game, believe it or not. I Like how you started to humanize Three a little more and it gave me my own motivation to do some highly odd but incredible Garys of the 108 tales... :)
| Josiphia chapter 25 . 2/2/2010
I have to say you are an amazing writer. I read you're Oblivion fan-fictions and I love them but you have definitely improved a lot since. My favorite character in this story by far was Three. Imagining Three on caffeine is hilarious. It's also great how Fawkes correcting Thistle all the time. Poor Thistle, I can definitely relate XD

Just...beautiful. Perfect. What more can i say?
