I simply adore your story :) You have great writing potential, so keep it up!

"the two of us looked nothing alike. I took after my mother, apparently."
One of my very many favorite things about this fic: Isra's wry voice, which is so utterly convincing I can actually hear it as I'm reading. Also, the plottiness, and the level of detail.
Adding my voice to the Please Update Soon chorus :)
| Aschenhimmel chapter 12 . 10/1/2009
Things are getting more and more interesting...to the point that I can't wait for the next chapter! XD
And will Isra punch Idris again? XD
| Queen.of.Tea chapter 12 . 9/30/2009
This is magnificent. I have such a girlboner for this time period, and I wish the game's writers had expanded on it the way you have. Never stop updating~!
| auctionedCanidae chapter 12 . 9/28/2009
I've been avoiding the Assassin's Creed fanfics with OCs, but I am VERY glad that I took a chance with this. I will definitely keep reading, and eagerly await further updates!
Also, I LOVE the research notes at the bottom. I've done a fair bit of research into the Third Crusade myself now, and I'm really appreciating the extra length you've gone to here. The whole time period is fascinating!
| portablesunshine chapter 12 . 9/28/2009
I really like this story. ].
and altair may not be able to swim
but ezio can haha.
but anyway. i really enjoy this. i like her character and how she is worried...she seems real... and i really would like a punch tamir in the face D
| Shadow Chaser chapter 12 . 9/27/2009
Good chapter. I really can't wait to see how this will eventually tie into Tamir's assassination by Altair. I like the dynamic between Idris and Isra. Great job! Looking forward to reading more!
| Merlin's Phox chapter 12 . 9/27/2009
*is now a devout reader* Please keep writing! I look forward to more -
| Beautifulnsanity chapter 12 . 9/27/2009
Oh my goodness! I thought you had given up all hope for this story!
But then I got an email that you updated, whoohoo!
Anyway, it's good to know that you don't plan to give up on this 3
Absolutely Cannot Wait for Chapter 13!
(I hope Altair shows up soon!)
| Sivan IXXX chapter 12 . 9/25/2009
Darn that Tamir! Why's he such a butthole? Anyway, I can't wait for number 13! It will come sooner than this one did, yes?
| Crisium chapter 12 . 9/25/2009
"Al Mualim is of the ‘sink or swim’ school of pedagogy. Which is funny, because Altair can’t swim."
I choked on my drink. Brilliant chapter, as always- I've no sort of intelligent critique other than to say I adore this story.
| undercoverchad chapter 11 . 9/21/2009
This is the last story of yours that I've read (yes, almost all in one day. Luckily it's the public holiday of Hari Raya here) and the first that I feel compelled to review.
I loved it. All of it. (Even the 'rambling notes' which make me feel like I'm at least doing something educational and which gives us some insight into *you*, dear Author.)
I loved the rich, evocative scenes, the intelligence of the writing, the details, and most of all, I loved all the characters, even the not so nice ones, because you made them real. The various (hilarious) situations - esp the one in which she gallops away from Altair in mid-speech - made me want to keep reading, want to see the characters as they develop.
Your original character is very well fleshed out (compared to most in the fanfiction scene), and she is strong-minded without being overbearing.
(By the way, have you ever had the chance to read Kage Baker's series on The Company? I thoroughly recommend it.)
Wish there was more to read - I would gobble everything up in one sitting if this were a book - but I understand the constraints of real life.
Just wanted to say (in as apparently as long-winded a way as I am capable), that you inspire me to want to write again.
P.S: Don't even get me started on your other fanfictions.
| Shadow Chaser chapter 11 . 9/19/2009
This, is a rare piece of gem in what seems to be a bunch of Mary-Sue plagued stories on under the Assassin's Creed heading. I really like the writing style, it's very similiar narrative to Robin Hobb's works (which is also about an assassin apprentice).
You clearly have done research about the Third Crusade and blended it in with the AC mythos and my inner historian cheers you for that. Great job and I hope to read more of your works!
| SilverMistKunoichi chapter 11 . 9/12/2009
Oh I hope Altair is the person that helps her with her reports. Update soon please! :)
| SilverMistKunoichi chapter 9 . 9/12/2009
This is SUCH a good story! So unique and like nothing I've ever read before! I love this and I hope she falls in love with Altair. :)
