| S.M.Shoka chapter 10 . 3/10/2016
I love how you've wrapped this new world with Coraline's world. The idea of adding the fae works well because of the already dark undertones of the Other World. These new characters have such strong voices and are developed well-the way Sereno interacts with Coraline comes off very naturally. I'm always hesitant to add OC's to my own fics because I never know if they're too jarring or not but you've done it well!

Oh! Hello again. I was actually just thinking about this story last week. It's nice to see you back!
Well it looks like the war itself is moving up and now that the group has been split up by the experimental magic-thingies it'll be interesting to see how they'll get back together. Coraline with Ealhdun, my my. I wonder what you have planned.

Lol just throw that Dragon's Blood in there casually - no one will notice!
Very intense chapter. I really like the Cat's voice and think you've got it's characterization down very well, which is pretty cool since we don't really even know that much about the Cat in the movie. Every time I read his lines, I hear Keith David voicing him with that deep, melodious tone haha!

Yeesh, I've been meaning to review this for a while now!
Anyway, I like how you're building this adventure - there's a much stronger sense of magical realism in it than the movie portrayed. The movie only gave us a couple of hints and clues that the Cat had some history with the Bedlam and there was more to the Other World. Have you ever read Half-World by Hiromi Goto? Your story reminds me of it! You might enjoy it cause I saw that you like a bunch of Miyazaki films -which it's also similar to as well.

This story is amazing :3 please update soon!
| Beta chapter 10 . 8/6/2015
I lost the login info to my account years ago, but I've been following this story since 2010 and I get so excited whenever it updates! I really liked this chapter and cant wait for the next one :)
| Corao chapter 1 . 8/1/2015
Wow! I'm glad I stumbled upon this! I really like where this is going so far and I look forward to reading it! I hope you keep up the updates on it :)
| Lord of Tuft chapter 10 . 8/1/2015
Oh, this was a long one. And seeing as how long it's been since the last one that's good; a long chapter to make up for it. And what a chapter it was. This is possibly my favorite one so far. That encounter with the Nymph gave me such an amazing Tolkienesque feeling. It was just wonderful.
Also, now I'm even more suspicious of Ealdhun... no surprise there. See ya next time, mate!
| Dance of the Masquerade chapter 9 . 7/18/2015
I really love your faniction, Kiss of the Breeze! It really feels like a real story to me sometimes, and I really am enjoying the character development, the situations happening (not that I like them getting hurt or anything, hehe), and the close relationship between Coraline and Sereno!
(Honestly I thought I was the only who had though/shipped this ship, I am so glad that I came across your story and even some fanart in Deviantart! Please do keep continuing with this great story of your's!)
| Lord of Tuft chapter 9 . 6/20/2015
Welcome back! A bit of a slow chapter this. Not all that much happened, but it was nice to have a few things explained. I understand now why you made Sereno a dryad; I had never really thought about that myself, so good on you for thinking of that! Same goes for Coraline's ability to spot magic.
Also, now we'll have to put another coin into the Monty Python Reference Jar...

Hello and welcome back! Good to hear that schoolwork went well and that you're back in action. Speaking of which, it is great to see some action in this story and that you don't skimp out on the blood and otherwise horrible parts of war. It was an interesting situation to see Sereno and especially Coraline in. I really hope to see more of that in future chapters. great job on this chapter; well sized and interesting. See ya next time :)
(commenting on Ch.1 because I've alredy commented on Ch.8 on the previous story.)

Ah, I've got to say that it was a little refreshing to get a small look into the situation of a few other characters. As for the situation with Sereno, it's something I've thought quite a bit about especially when reading Tolkien lore. It can't be very fun for an immortal (or near immortal) being to fall in love with someone mortal. I'll be looking forward to seeing how this will all turn out.
Although it was rather on the short side, it was nice to have a little update seeing as you are quite busy. good luck!
| Lord of Tuft chapter 6 . 2/14/2015
I rather like that idea you have about Sereno showing affection. It's cute without really the intention of being cute (from his point of view). It's simple and doesn't really have anything behind it other than what it is. In general I'm liking what I've seen of characterization so far and am looking forward for more.
Now, make sure that you focus on what's important and come back for this when you have the time. Good luck and I'll see you next time :-)
| Lord of Tuft chapter 5 . 1/22/2015
At first I was expecting this to be another chapter like the previous one. Comfortably slow and primarily to build up the characters and the world. Boy was I surprised. I did not expect that sudden siege, so good on you for that one.
I'm not entirely sure what to think about Ealhdun. The way you've described him so far makes me question his integrity a bit, but I wouldn't be surprised if you do quite the opposite with him. Anyway, now I'm excited to see how things are going to turn out. It's an interesting strategy to willingly surrender a castle (the capital?) and instead use that as an opportunity to reconquer previously lost land and use that land for an additional war front.
Good luck with anything and everything that may be going on in life, and I'll see you next time :-D

I'm loving the rewrite, not to say the original work was bad. This just has more strength going forward. Character interactions feel more deep and real. It's shaping up really nicely. 3
