This was simply brilliant, watches her slow and steady change, the way she was perceived, looking fro the Wendy at the start to the broken wreck she was in the middle to the powerful and self possessed, reborn pirate she is at the end, just brilliant all round. The descriptions were vivid and immersive, the thought processes and personalities perfect and it all flowed together magnificently.
The fact you managed to pull off writing this in the unique manner and perspective you did only makes it more impressive, everything just feels so natural and, just, brilliant story, nothing more I can say, simply brilliant.

Oh damn. I'm not even in the Peter Pan fandom but I still absolutely enjoyed this fic. In fact I had to reread it a couple times because I was just stunned by it. i love when females grow and mature wihtout the male and gain power of their own so this fufilled that desire. My favorite part was where she begins to get trained to fight and how that leads to her "rebirth". Just so damn amazing.

Hook is a gentleman. He has half an Eton college tattoo on his hook arm right where it was cut off.
I love Your story and hope you'll create a sequel for it.

Absolutely love this! I feel like Peter was a bit of a jerk, and that Wendy is fabulous, and basically this is brilliant.

This is phenomenal, the charcterization, the realistic reactions, the metaphors. I just gobbled it up. You are an amazing writer!

Woah. This can really be analyzed to bits and pieces! I dunno about everyone else, but for me, this was a portrayal of Wendy growing up (even if you did not intend it so). Peter Pan representing the peak of her childhood, the fact that he's not coming for her represents slowly growing up, then accepting it. The way Crook reminds her slightly of her father is, to me, further elaboration of the growth - she begins to understand him, listen to him, fight him. He shapes her and helps her grow, as a dad does. And then, in the end, when they finally leave Neverland... Well, that would represent truly growing up and leaving childhood behind - perhaps moving out, starting a life on your own, something like that.
Welp, seems like I've analyzed your story. Woops. It was awesome though!

There's so much to say and compliment! But, I'm sure you've already heard it, so I'll keep it short.
Wendy and Hook and Smee and the pirates were wonderful.
The writing and idea and characters were absolutely great.

Just one word: Impressive. One of the best fics of Peter Pan I ever read. I just love how dark and realistic this is (really, when you look at it, Peter Pan is a rather dark book) and how Wendy changes, especially with the "mermaid" topic, how she thinks about the mermaid that didn't want to kill her loved one and her sisters and later, laughs at her and Juliet. Her rebirth is just fascinating and the writing is seductive and powerful, touching and making us feel and fear for Wendy (when she is breaking in her insanity). This is just great! I loved that fic and you're a gifted person!

...This...This is absolute, utter genius. Amazing. Spectacular. Wonderful. Brilliant. You are an amazing writer, and this is an amazing, emotional story. It breaks your heart and then glues it back together with some pieces missing. Thank you for writing this.

This is fantastic. The 'life, death, rebirth' theme was perfect, and I loved the repetitive 'Wendy Darling knows three things' - sad that she knows he won't come (while trying to convince herself that he will and that it's just a dream) but very intriguing.
You wrote her madness very well, too - the decent into tangents in the brackets before pulling back to the end of the original sentence was disorientating (I had to go back and re-read the first half several times) but highlighted her state of mind without going 'Wendy Darling was going mad'. After all, isn't it normally said that a mad person thinks they're sane? Or something along those lines :)
It was also nice to see your analysis in the notes at the end. Normally there's just the same-old-same-old plea for reviews, but this brought an interesting writer's perspective to the story. This is probably the first time I've seen that!
Just so you know, I think I was about half way through by the time I decided this would end up on my favourites list :) Thank you very much for writing this.
