Beyond epic. Love Brat's character. ;) Your writing style is so unique, there's so much to love here I haven't room to list it all! Must read more!

Oh! This is lovely. I am so sad that it is over...
I really like the cache. Like, I could live in there if I had survival skills.
I just love Drum... so so much. And Ella. Her too.
| QueenCobraWing chapter 8 . 10/22/2011
Oh, Ella. How foolishly lovelyly brave of you.
For Brat. That is sweet.
| QueenCobraWing chapter 7 . 10/22/2011
Oh, this is sweet. He is very sweet.
And go Ella! Yes! Be a human! Have feelings and friends!
Drum is better than Brat. (I admit I am very bias)
| QueenCobraWing chapter 6 . 10/22/2011
Aha! She was wrong. Bad Ella. But it's OK.
Drum, my love! I love him.
I see Drum has a knack for getting into dangerous situations, seeming dead, and then making it. Nice. That's pretty sexy.
| QueenCobraWing chapter 5 . 10/22/2011
I almost guarantee that Ella's decision will be wrong and she will start to, like, respect (that isn't the right word. Appreciate? Depend upon? I don't know) Drum more.
I feel bad... I wish I had been around to read this as you wrote it, but I don't believe I'd heard of this book then.
| QueenCobraWing chapter 4 . 10/22/2011
Oh, Ella. I was sort of scared picturing Ella all vulnerable, at around age twelve or so, right, because she escaped when she was eleven. She's the toughest there is... it was unsettling :)
I believe we should trust Drum entirely because I love him...
I was so confused by Ella's talent until the very end of that book...
Oh no. They are trapped... this is rather bad.
| QueenCobraWing chapter 3 . 10/22/2011
Oh, my darling! Poor poor baby! She'd get mad at me for saying that, but poor dear Ella.
| QueenCobraWing chapter 2 . 10/22/2011
Oh, I do love them both. Ella is so... matter-of-fact, very stoic.
And I like their teamwork.
Brat! Poor Ella...
| QueenCobraWing chapter 1 . 10/22/2011
Oh, goodness. This is already bringing tears to my eyes. I finished reading this book last night, and I cried so hard for Ella and Drum, my absolute favorites.
And Brat! Oh, poor Ella. She let him become a friend, too, and more even, and now he's a dead Winger. Oh... I liked your Brat. I liked that this jokey person seems to be one of the few to open Ella up.

Really loving this so far, they are kept beautifully in character, and I know you wrote this ages ago, but i recently re-read S.C and needed to read fanfic for Ella/Drum :D
| DirigiblePlum chapter 9 . 8/24/2010
I love this fic, I think you've captured Nix's style very well, as well as his characters.
| Its2dark2read chapter 2 . 8/21/2010
Thats so sad, I really hate it when things like this happen, anyway, I thought Ella only knew Brat at the Dorms, it doesn't really matter anyway, this chapter was awesome, really liked the bit about Drum knowing the way through the tunnels.
| Its2dark2read chapter 1 . 8/21/2010
Cool, that is awesome, I really like reading about Ella and Drum, you herdly get to hear there sides, in the book its all gold eye, gold eye, gold eye and more gold eye, and then Ella and Drum die, I was so pissed off at garth nix when he killed them, anyway, thanx 4 writing this wonderful Fic :)

Great story. Thank you, Disreputable Writer. I am a huge Shade's Children fan so I thought it would be the least I could do to give your story a review. I think you did a really good job setting the stage for the beginning of Shade's Children. You covered some of important things we know happened before Shade's Children began such as Brat being capture and Ella and Drum obtaining a witchlight. You also did a good job creating the initial bond between Ella and Drum that seems pretty strong (although not obvious) by the time Shade's Children starts. I like how you used the name Corbie for the third team member on Brat and Ella's old team instead of just making up a name because I noticed Corbie on that list of KIA Shade's Children. I'm guessing that Ella was probably enlisted as one of Shade's Children for a little longer than 5 months before Drum showed up but that doesn't really matter. You actually did quite well with accurately timing everything. So again, good job and thanks!
