| Akelarre chapter 3 . 1/10/2010
Victoria is perfect as the bitter, heartless and vindictive villain. Bella’s memories are as moving and insightful as Edwards. Love it.

I just found this story, and I am already hooked. It is thrilling and different from a lot of other ff stories.
Can't wait for more!

hey girl - i'm loving this! you apologized early on about rough and raw and unedited and lacking layers of detail, but i must tell you the depth, pace and flow suit the subject matter really well. i think there is plenty of detail present to give an attentive, and reasonably smart reader, lots to work with, without gobbing up the works with too much self-analysis of each speaker.
Love the pace - the early scenes on the train, the intimate flashbacks, edward waking up in bella's absence, the key snippets and observations thereafter, brief conversations loaded with little details, all matching the urgency of finding bella. the scene with the change of clothes, the sex scene with V and James, charlie's observations of edward's house - all show us soo much, with few words.
elegant, spare, and well done. sometimes the stuff that grabs us and demands to be told quickly ends up the best-told stories. anxious for more.

Holy shit! I ran across this on twilighted and I always feel like I'm cheating when I run to FF! You are killing me with this story, it's way past bedtime but I'm in for the long haul. I truly hope you aren't too sadistic with this story, I guess I'll find out. Love it so far!

UGH! I've gone through all of my finger nails and am about to start on my fingers. ;) I am on the edge of my seat. Edward needs to continue with his thoughts of Norris and Matthews. Enjoyed it.

I like how you have the canon feelings of Alec and Felix. Alec is cold, enjoying causing others pain. Felix goes along, does what is required of him, but would be willing to be kind.
Oh, and Alice? Simply superb. The way she is reaching for her visions, but is hindered by Bella's blindfold. It's almost as if they have blindfolded both of them. Victoria has a wonderful sense of self-preservation as well. She would be the one to keep Bella blindfolded.
Very scary story, in terms of how people think. Poor Edward doesn't even realize people can hate him for merely being successful and ethical.

Sorry to be so slow in reviewing hon, it's been super busy. I know you, of all people, can understand.
I love the amount of emotion you put in your writing. When I grow up into a good writer, I want to be like you! Your descriptions of James' and Victoria's bizarre thinking, as well as the depth of Edward's misery, really make me feel what they are feeling. It's quite intense.
Off to the next chapter!
