| fanficfan84 chapter 8 . 4/5/2010
OMG! You seriously made my day with this chapter! Once again you wrote an excellent chapter with all the right elements that help the story develop smoothly!
I have to say I agree with your husband. I honestly think that the creators of the movie should refer to you in Sabas' character development should he ever be in a sequel. Either that or they need to sign him over to you and let you work your magic.
This is the first, and only, Sabas fic I've read and because I love him so much when I saw your story I knew that I had to read it. I was thrilled to find that it was excellent b/c now I read not just because of him, but because the quality of writing is good. ;-)
I think you do a really great job with Sabas and I do see and love the elements you pulled from Rahl. Even as Haldir, Craig Parker has this special something found in all the roles he plays (well the ones I've seen) and I think you captured all of it perfectly.
Not only that, but you created an awesome OC- Aleeria. I just love her personality and her behavior and everything. It suits the environment that she is in and the time period. She is also relatable and that is meant as a compliment because I usually never like the main heroines whether in tv shows, stories, movies, etc... In this case, I do and love her!
Btw, I watched Moonlight too! even though I sort of liked Erika in the film, I rooted for her more when I saw the actress on the tv show. She and Josef were my faves lol.
I am very much looking forward to your next update! I can't wait for the chains to come off!

Oh my goodness! *squeals* This chapter was so sweet and descriptive, it gave me butterflies! I really just want to break Sabas out of those chains so he can be with Aleeria! *sighs* But I shall be a good little reader and sit back to enjoy the show. 3

Seriously think about writing an romance novel and publishing it. You have mad talent for writing and your attention to detail is really good. Gosh, my heart broke when I reached the end of the chapter! It is so so good and I want the chains to come off him soon or else I'll go crazy lol.
Lol, Darken Rahl, Craig Parker, "predatory movements", "penetrating gaze," all describe Sabas *sque*. I'm in love with him and Darken Rahl and Craig Parker all over again lol.
I love what u did with Erika and your portrayal of her is right on the mark. Exactly like her in the show. I was always felt it was a pity she wasn't in the movie more. I kind (this is embarrassing to admit lol) of wanted her and Raze meet or something, but the show just had to make her a clingy, helpless female vamp who stayed home a lot lol.
Ah well, your story makes things better. You added a bit more character and info to Erika and I liked that you did that.
I cannot wait to read more! I want to read another so bad!

Oh dear, looks like Lucian knows all too well what the consequences could be for Sabas and Aleeria. I wonder if Erika will start to figure things out in her mind. And I love how Aleeria handeled herselef! She was brilliant infront of Erika and Lucian! Keep this up!3

This chapter was short, but no less important to the story it seems. I must admit that I didn't register the name Erika until you mentioned her desire to become a vampire, and her interest in Kraven. That was really cool how you included her in your story and gave us a glimpse into how she became what she was. And you really captured the essence of her character as the ambitious and manipulative gossip, not to mention her disdain for Lycans. And I like the interaction between Aleeria and Erika; they identify with Lycans and Vampires differently yet they share a comaraderie in trying to survive the precarious position of a mortal in this world. I think you're weaving your own character into this world seamlessly, which is pretty hard to do. I also like how you are subtley revealing the inner-politics and workings of the castle: everyone is manipulative in one way or another, but most of them are just trying to secure their survival, and in Lucian and Aleeria's case, the survival of those they love. A lot of information for such a short chapter. Very clever of you ;) As always, looking forward to the next chapter. Hope the muses pay you a visit!

I must say the long awaited chapter did not disappoint. You really did a great job in keeping up the anticipation to this crucial moment in the story. And I would definitely say that you are honing your storytelling skills excellently. The way that you describe the surroundings, the inner-thoughts of the characters and their movements gives the story a depth that would be lacking had you only written dialogue. I can easily picture every detail in your story (which in this chapter made me blush quite a bit, hehe) so well done there. I'm so excited that you're continuing the story, I'm anxious to see what happens once Sabas is out of his chains. Oh, and thanks for taking the extra time to address your reviewers personally, I thought that was really nice. Can't wait for the next chapter!

*SQUE* Goodness, I was so excited when I saw that you posted another chapter! It was very nicely written lol. I do love the way you capture their feelings towards each other. It's believable imo and it just makes me want to see more of their interactions! Oh, I can't wait for the chains to come off lol. I can't wait for more!
Lol, Craig Parker is one of my fave actors and I have been trying to watch every show he's been in just so I can see his good-looking face. If you haven't yet, you should try to watch him on Legend of the Seeker. *SIGH* he's so dreamy even if he is the villain of the show lol.

This chapter made my day! It seems as though with each chapter that Aleeria and Sabas grow a new height of feelings and passion for each other. Each part was so detailed and so brilliantly written! I love how you are going about with each chapter! Keep it up my friend! 3
| fanficfan84 chapter 5 . 3/2/2010
Goodness! This is a lovely and very smokin' hot story! U have no idea how thrilled I am to find that Sabas has a story here. Gosh I am so in love w/ Craig Parker and when I saw him in this film, I fell in love all over again :D Thank you for writing his story! I hope to read more soon!
| luthien587 chapter 5 . 2/20/2010
I'm really enjoying your story, and I think that it's very well written. You have a real talent for keeping the reader hooked and wanting more. I never thought giving someone a bath could be the basis for a story, especially one so well written. Also, I commend you for writing a story on Sabas, I've been hoping someone would write one for a while now and was pleasantly surprised to find your story. I'm anxiously awaiting your next chapter, though the suspense is killing me! ;) All the best, and keep up the good work!
| taylorxtorniquet chapter 5 . 2/20/2010
It definately shows that Sabas has growing feelings for her, I can't wait to see how much stronger those feelings become. Aleeria also has a strong mind for her age. I love how you are doing everything!
