|Reviews for Taken|

Hi I think its a shame to stop this story and remove bits of it as I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Ok its not a subject that most people are comfortable with but it is just a story and if people can't accept that then they shouldn't read it. Leave it for a while if u have to but don't change it. Please.

I loved this story just the way it was. If you say it is going to be better, well that sounds great too.
Standing behind you 100percent!
Anxious to see Taken when it returns.

Hi there, before i continue, i just wanted to find out if mom & baby have been doing okay. i've been praying for a safe pregnancy and hope that things are alright.
Just wanted to let you know that i truly appreciate your love and passion for writing. will wit for you to re-post Taken. I know that some of the readers didn't like how the story went...but i did, not just because of the lemons (ahem...) but because it was a different kind of love story. totally unexpected.
i pray that you'll continue and finish the story. do take your time and know that we will patiently wait for your update/reposting.

I am so sorry you feel the need to do this. I for one was thoroughly enjoying this story. I can't believe you got any negative reviews. My thinking is that if you have nothing nice to say... say nothing!
I am writing my first story and thankfully have only had amazing positive reviews.
I especially loved that you tried to spin this into your own culture. Respect to you for that. Maybe I'll try to turn Bella and Edward into Glaswegians (people from Glasgow) soon... That could be amusing!

Omg! Please don't do this! This story is amazing! Can you just leave this posted and just make another story saying " Taken Rewritten" I love going back to this story and reading it!

I love this story a lot, but if you wish to take it down, do so. I can't wait to see an updated version if you think this is bad.

Kudos to you. I love all of your stories except this one. I wanted to love it but I totally agree with your opinions in regards to this story. You are totally awesome and I am in awe of your talent. Love the viking one of my favorites.

May I just say how much I appreciate the respect you have shown your readers with this announcement and "grace" period. Too often, readers don't get this kind of respect and I, for one, am very, VERY pleased to see in what high regard you hold your readers. I've always respected you as a writer, but I must say this gesture really cemented my appreciation of your work and the person you seem to be. So well done, and thank you!

Thanks so much for this story. It was actually the first one that got me really involved in reading fan fiction, and which led me to your other works.
"Taken" intrigued me because of the original premise, and that still stands. Surreal though it is, as a fantasy, the idea of the Edward who kidnaps Bella was dramatic, exciting and fun.
It's a testament to your writing that I remained just as interested in the work once it morphed into a more traditional love story. Eventually it was no longer a "capture" fantasy but more involved in the characters, and that is something that you excel at.
There was a chapter back in the 50s that I thought would have been an appropriate ending. Edward and Bella were about to fly back to Texas, and both considered it "home." That was a huge transition for both of them, and particularly considering how their relationship started. Obviously we never stop wanting to know about characters we care about, but for me, that told me everything i needed to know. It felt satisfying.
However you choose to continue or edit the story is, obviously, up to you. I just wanted to take a minute and thank you, because your work had a huge influence on me getting involved in this hobby. You're going to grow as a writer, and older works won't appeal to you as much, but that doesn't make them any less appreciated. Thank you again for sharing your talent.

I totally understand what you're saying. I thought it was so good when I first read it, and it still is good, but when I read your other stories, especially Blizzard, I was shocked that it was by the same author. Your other stories have so much more depth and make me much more emotional. I do look forward to seeing this story revised.

i can completely understand taking something you did and not being happy with it. We are our own worst enemy sometimes, aren't we?
i do that to myself all the time.
i want to wish you good luck in re-working this story. I will be first in line to read it.
Another author did this and i so enjoyed the updated version.
