LOOOOOVE it! Especially how you beat them with the 'logic' created by Smeyer herself. Very cathartic. Thank you for writing this.

That was just bloody briliant, srsly. God how fucking cool that would be if that really happened. XD Your genius.

Very interesting story. I had never thought of the Volturi's reaction after BD, but I must say it's a really compelling and persuasive following that you give us here. I loved it! Great job!

Muahahaha - I would dearly love to see a sequel to this, perhaps a final battle sequence where Aro has arrayed his pawns. It would be so lovely. :3

After being furious due to the Volturi's humiliation (I'm total Team Volturi), this story made them have the power and slyness that they should have and still have! I never thought about Edward showing Aro everything, so that makes the Volturi even more amazing! Outstandingly written, really gives the Volturi a cocky tone.

Not much I can say that everyone else hasn't. This is a truly wonderful and compelling oneshot, and makes a lot of sense...
I have maybe to objections to the story here.
The first is Aro's casual defeat of Edward's abilities. Not terrible, but not something I enjoyed. I think the worst was his defeating Edward's mind reading. Edward does read surface thoughts, including glimpses into deeper meaning and flashes of intent. Edward should have realized that SOMETHING was up.
Really I think it would have been better handled if Aro WAS stumped "at the time." He didn't have all the information, and adapted quickly and had them retreat. That keeps Edward just as component as in the original. It would have also have given Aro a bit more human error while keeping the wonderful elements of Aro's plan.
Second, Aro's plot has a hole in it that either can feed into an actual story about this or you simply didn't think of. If he leaves Alice's sight it is conspicuous to her. He would drop directly out of view, letting them know he is up to something. It would still give him some much needed protection, but it is NOT an "I Win" button.
The first criticism is a suggestion for improvement, but the second is more of a comment. Aro could easily have thought this out well, and the line was simply the end of the story (and a magnificent one), not the end of the meeting.
All in all you did a brilliant job here. Thank you.

Wow, usually I don't like Twilight, but I stumbled upon this absolutely LOVELY jewel of a story and I just have to comment! I love all the Volturi, and the way you captured all of their personalities is just perfect and spot on. If you wrote any more of this I would gladly read it.

U have to do some more why can't you kill them of I would love that very well done.(:
| grim grace chapter 1 . 8/9/2010
Bril-I-Ant. Honestly, this is pure talent. You've captured the characters perfectly and given me a plausible idea of the Volturi's plan beyond Breaking Dawn. A definite favourite, and I will be on the lookout for any more fics you have-perhaps you will continue this one?
| V333 chapter 1 . 7/4/2010
This was an amazing story. The characters were all really intriguing. I love how this shows that the Volturi aren't incompetent as they are shown in the book. I enjoyed your writing far more than the actual book, probably because my favourite characters BY FAR are the Volturi. Great job, I'd love it if you wrote more, I already favouried this story, my first for the Twilight series.

I stumbled across this fic by chance and it's truly incredible!
Intelligent and cunning, a marvellous take on some of the most glaring holes in Meyers' books.
Stellar work, simply brillant. C:
| mustang2gmx.ch chapter 1 . 6/9/2010
This is incredible... YOU are absolutely incredible..
A wonderful one-shot. One thing that has always bothered me in the Twilight series is how easily the Volturi get dismissed as a threat in the end. Meyers makes them look like stupid, incompetent, petulant children and it leaves the reader wondering how they managed to govern their world if this is the way they act. Aro is little more then a power-hungry clown in BD.
Now your story, this is what I call a true ruler! It shows a coven that is successful that made heavy mistakes for a reason, but that does not have its reputation for nothing and can counteract the Cullens actions.
And Aro is just unbelievable. I would pay horrendous sums of money just to see Michael Sheen, with his disquieting looks and voice, act out this story.
Thank you so much for this gem!

You can't just end this! Once again,you have to continue it! It's genius! You understand them all so perfectly!
Continue the story!
