Really enjoying this story, it's so well written and I love the characters. Hope you finish this when your feeling better, I understand that sometimes that might take a while.

I just read the whole stray up to this point. Very awesome!
I've been playing Vesperia recently, and it is incredibly easy to read your dialogue in the character's voices. This is an absolutely amazing fanfic, and I feel sad that this the first Vesperia fanfiction I've read and that all others after this are just going to pale in comparison. Keep up the good work! :)

Hey! Long time no review (or reread...). I actually started playing Tales of Vesperia fairly recently and now I'm at Tarqaron, so ... hey, I know the places and the background events now! Yay! XD
Rereading, I still like the flow of your writing. It's good construction. The only thing I might comment on otherwise might be the romance, which is slow (which is good), but is also deliberate at times. I'm nitpicking, though. I'm used to reading/writing completely gen fics, so of course they'd be completely devoid of anything romantic whatsoever.
After playing the game, though, I can see that Flynn x Yuri (or whatever order it's in) is ... not really a product of the imagination. In fact, just a little push and ... it'd probably be canon XD

I've never left a review on this site before, but I feel I need to for this story. I absolutely adore your writing. I've read and reread every chapter at least three times, which seems excessive, I know, but I just can't help but come back to this story over and over again.
I admit that I was initially drawn to it for the pairing (which, I may add, is portrayed wonderfully), but it was the storyline that got me hooked and kept me there all the way through. I think you've managed to strike the perfect tone, too, in that there's a balance between the drama/suspense and lighthearted, humourous scenes that just feels right for the canon.
Also, I love to see well crafted original characters in fic, partly because it's so rare to see them actually done well (I think "mary sue" backlash makes a lot of writers apprehensive about including OCs, so they just avoid them entirely, which can make the canon cast feel rather isolated within the setting, or reduce their roles and development to the bare minimum), but the characters you've introduced here fit so naturally into the story and at the same time are developed enough that they always feel like people, rather than plot devices. I'm particularly fascinated by Tor in the more recent chapters. I'm not sure even he knows where his allegiances lie at the moment and his moral conflict and the feeling that he's in over his head are an interesting thematic addition to this 'verse (if that even makes sense. Sorry, I'm rambling a bit here). He seems like a great supporting character to post-canon Yuri and Flynn in that regard, and I'm really interested to see how his character arc plays out.
I could probably go on and on with my thoughts on how brilliant this story is (I think I might try to draw something from it at some point, unless that's weird coming from a stranger?) but I'll leave it there. I just wanted to come in and show my appreciation, as this is a genuinely fine piece of work and probably one of if not the best fics I've read in a long time.
I eagerly await future chapters, whenever they may come. (I mean that sincerely. Obviously real life takes hage priority over fic writing, and I wish you all the best.)

Loving this story but I have to ask, was there anything that inspired the story of the two brothers? It sounds really familiar to my sister and I.

You are an angel who has been sent from heaven to bestow upon on this Flurri goodness. Listen to your calling and be blessed.
Peace be with you.
| Guest chapter 34 . 7/2/2012
I’m going to have to review this as a guest because I haven’t touched my fanfic account in like 8 years lol. Long story short – you are my idol. Some things I want to praise you for:
Your uncanny ability to gauge the character’s personalities from the game, and parlay them so accurately into the situations you have written for this story. Your intuition as to how these characters behave is so solid – right down to the body language!
The analytical approach you took when depicting the climate and environment of Terca Lumireis. I love how you took the environment shown in the game, and fleshed it out for your readers. The imagery you produced does a really effective job in positioning the setting.
The dramatic build-up you use as a writer. I love your use of vocabulary…the way you string words together to describe facial expressions and vocal tone. The words you use for embellishment are impactful. You play the English language so well.
The characters you introduced to the story. I love them. Mira is such an evil cow, and yet fascinating to read. And of course the relationship you depicted with Flynn and Yuri is the best I’ve ever read. It’s just such a good balance between desire and reality. Very believable…and adorable!
Thank you so much for investing your time and energy into writing this fic. I want you to know how much I appreciate it. I have been obsessed with it (actually I sneak in a few chapters at the office if I have time…don’t tell my boss).
I look forward to the conclusion. I’ve never read anything like this on and I never expected to. Xo

As someone who has recently beaten the game, I'm so happy to see an update! This was a wonderful chapter and I happily await the next. ;w; Your writing is so awesome
| Rydia Asuka chapter 34 . 5/18/2012
Well, it's good to see you're still at it! Or, rather...I always knew you were still at it, it's just good to, uh, see an update! Yeah, that! C:
At any rate, I'm glad to see this story continued, because I'm sure we're all waiting to see how it wraps up. Not to mention that it's good to see some Yuri and Flynn in this installment. :D
Anyway, I shall be patiently awaiting the next update! Until that time, I hope things go well for you, and good luck with you current move!
| DaUglyChibi chapter 34 . 5/18/2012
I was so surprised and happy to see this updated! I love your writing and I was happy to see it was not abandoned! I know how hard to can be sometimes to find the motivation (not to mention the time) to write and I want to thank you again for updating! You're writing is amazing and very engaging, I was on the edge on my seat and felt my chest tighten along with Flynn's when it seemed Yuri had gone over the cliff's edge. I also love how you write Repede, because he's a badass, and I feel a lot of people either don't write him in and take him for granted, or don't do it well. And you do it awesomely. Let me just say it one last time, I love your writing and thank you for writing.

I love you so much for updating! Your writing, ideas, characterizations are incredibly engaging! I sincerely hope for an update somewhere in the near future (for either story really). 3
| Snowflake Kisses chapter 34 . 5/17/2012
O.O I love this story. It very well written and I think it's totally amazing. You portray the characters perfectly and everything in it is just so amazing. I can't wait to read the next chapter. :)
| ZephyraExcalibur chapter 34 . 5/17/2012
I kind of made a really happy/excited exclamation when I saw you had updated :D (Good thing no one was around...) Argh I'll have to be in suspense because I have to go, this gives me something to look forward to though!
Thank you for updating. And I wanted to add that all of the thousands of people who have read your story truly care about you, support you, and appreciate you and (I hope this doesn't sound creepy?) love you (emphasizing that it's in a non-creepy way). As Monty Python likes to say, "Always look on the bright side of life. *whistle*"

I can't believe I read the whole thing through in one sitting. But it was so awesome!
| Soultide chapter 33 . 1/15/2012
I just found this story yesterday, so I'm a little late, but your work is absolutely amazing. I hope you find the time to finish this story in the future. Stay strong! )
