| Nic chapter 1 . 5/29/2014
just hilarious, love it, I've been replaying awakenings getting peed off with all the daft things you are spot on with
| The Winged Warden chapter 1 . 6/22/2012
Oh my God these letters were both sweet and funny. I love the personality of your rogue (quite similar to mine in fact). My favorite letter had to be when Alistair forgot about your Mabari. The nerve of him! Keep up the great work. This is going in my favorites.

Except for the end this was freakin hilarious. The end was understandable thought since the game can be pretty grim. I seriously enjoyed this. The humor and affection shown through. Especially Poetry with Cheesy lady parts. Rofl
| SnowHelm chapter 1 . 1/21/2012
I really loved this. It mirrored how I felt playing Awakenings :-)
You captured it beautifully and really made me laugh. A serious ending, but then it was a pretty serious ending to the game. Loved the style of the letters but would have loved to have seen Alistair's responses as well just for comedy effect.

Lol that was amazing. Really clever idea, and I think you really captured the depth of the emotion that Elissa has for Alistair. After all, they are the best couple ever. It flowed really well, which surprised me, because its basically a series of snap shots. Makes me wish Alistair had been in Awakening...ah well...

I like that you used a series of letters to tell the story. Makes it different, keeps it succinct, and gives real expression to your PC's voice. The thing with the dog and the portrait, and Alistair spilling his tea, made me laugh. Good work! I haven't played Awakening and there was enough information to keep me going, but enough left out that I didn't feel like I was getting a synopsis of the game.
An entertaining read, good job!

Mine worked once but not on my second playthrough. I heard you have to have 55 cunning but im not sure. I wonder if everyone survived..
| AlexxMorgenstern chapter 1 . 12/14/2010
I want to see Alistair's side of these conversations. Really badly.
| Aelfwen chapter 1 . 8/29/2010
I've just read my own first playthrough. It was brilliant! :D
| black mage wannabe chapter 1 . 7/20/2010
Very nice! I loved all the letters especially the ones about Snuggles and her complaints about people not recognizing her. That really annoyed me too! I also enjoyed your description of Velanna as a "blonde, bitchier, and more hateful elf version of Morrigan". Great job!
| gaj620 chapter 1 . 6/3/2010
best part has to be Alistair being yelled at for losing Snuggles.
| MouseMage chapter 1 . 4/29/2010
Hehehe! Comparing her woman parts to cheese now thats just funny! I nearly spat out my morning tea reading that! That was awesome!
| Lady Pixel chapter 1 . 4/22/2010
Hah! I loved it. I was so annoyed at all the little things in Awakenings...this was pretty great, actually :)
| mille libri chapter 1 . 4/18/2010
I thought of this story as I finished my first playthrough of Awakening and started my second, and it's even funnier now that I've been frustrated by the exact same things. Thank you, Jakia!

I really enjoyed this epistolary fic. The early letters were lighthearted and funny and then they kept getting darker. I started the expansion with my PC being queen and felt quite gypped by the fact I only got a peck on the cheek from Alistair when he came to visit. The king couldn't spend the night? It's kind of what you do when you're traipsing around the country on a royal progress.
I was very bugged by the lack of interaction between these NPCs and my character. I loved your observations and felt pretty much the same way. I teamed up with the Architect in my play through. Also, hello people? She's your queen - not some Orlesian.
I wanted so much more than we got out of Awakenings and the epilogue has me piqued what with the disappearance in a few years. I hope it's not because of the Calling.
