I'm so exhausted and emotional, and I now I don't know what to do with myself. Maybe I should just go back to the start and re-read it all over again.

Congratulations on an absolute masterpiece, my friend. Your 'Roman Alexander' is a work of art, and yes, I wept like a child for probably the last six or seven chapters. Your explanation of the Diadochi Wars was wonderfully detailed without being an overload of information (much like all your other cheeky 'H' chapters!) and I'm glad you left it as you did, with just the promise of Alexander and Hephaistion having found each other again. You've pieced everything together so cleverly, to say you were working around extra additions such as Aki - whose ending was perfect and terrible in equal measure - and I feel very honoured to have read it all.

I cannot wait to read your story of Caesar, I'm sure I am going to enjoy it immensely.

With heartfelt admiration and congratulations all around, you clever, clever thing,

E.

Hello friend!

It has been several years since I last read any of this story and spoke to you, so I wouldn't be surprised if you have forgotten me entirely! But as it is, I have not yet forgotten you, and I have finally found chance to return to it. Would you believe it? I have read it right from the beginning up to this point in a few long bursts of reading over the past few days. Yes, my eyes are very tired, but do you know what? I'd forgotten just how much I loved this story and your interpretation of Alexander and Hephaistion's adventures, and it has been BEYOND a pleasure to reacquaint myself with it. I'm currently around 40 or so chapters ahead of where I managed to get to last time, and am having a wonderful time catching up with all your clever ideas.

I would have left a review before now, but you probably won't be surprised to hear (well, read) that I just kept powering through because I was too excited to wait. A few short things:

Your development of Aki as he grows up is beautiful to read, and to tell you the truth a small part of my brain is now convinced you have some key into the past and that this is all factual to the letter. His differing relationships with his two fathers is lovely, and as I read on I really hope Hephaistion never stops being a 'mother goose'!

I am quite ashamed of how pleased I was by the change in Hephaistion's relationship with Nikandros. When it was first hinted I was thinking to myself "No! Don't do it!" but seeing Nik's struggle was actually very heartbreaking. Well done you, you successfully converted me to your way of thinking.

I am very pleased with your sneaky Bagoas. Well, I absolutely loathe him of course, but I'm very pleased with how you've written him. Also I think I love Yarsa even more this time around than last time. Also Chrys. Also Kyros.

Oh my goodness, I'm going to have to stop now. Just know, that I am terribly sorry I had to abandon you and this story during the heart of it, but I am seeing it through to the end now. I hope this review finds you well and enjoying life.

Your friend,

E.

Sabes?... Puse tu historia en favoritos desde hace tiempo cuando leí el primer capitulo y para serte sincera, me daba pereza continuar por la cantidad de capítulos de son. Un día, hace como dos semanas vi un documental de Alexander y recordé que tenía ésta historia pendiente y cuando empecé a leerla... no pude parar! Incluso leí varias veces algunos capítulos y déjame decirte que seguramente los voy a seguir leyendo cada vez que quiera suspirar o reír, algunos no los quiero volver a leer de nuevo (NickxHeph?). Lloré con varios, como en el que Phai le dice a Alexander que su padre asesinó al suyo y se arrodilla ante el viéndolo como a un Rey... Los de la muerte de Hephaistion me hicieron ir a trabajar con los ojos hinchados.

Que más te digo que no te hayan dicho ya tus admiradores? Ah por Zeus, que buena escritora eres! No sabes cuanto te agradezco que hayas publicado ésta historia.

Hay libro con la misma temática, pero no es tan intenso y romántico como A Macedonian Tale . El Alexander y el Hephaistion que tú créaste son perfectos y se complementan muy bien. Escribiste un amor perfecto.

Gracias!

Lo dejaré así o alabaré tu trabajo por horas hasta aburrirte.

P.D. Hay alguna manera de conseguir tu trabajo en formato digital (ebook etc)?

Hola Paola,

Mil gracias por tu mensaje y por darle una oportunidad a esta historia, es muy emocionante leer que a pesar de que ya han pasado 2 años desde que la terminé aún hay alguien interesado en ella. ¡Claro! Siempre reviso mis PM, Reviews y demás, aunque no siempre tengo tiempo de responderlos tan pronto como quisiera.

Acerca de los “Sueños Futuristas” voy a tratar de responder tu duda lo mejor que pueda: la idea de que Hephaistion tuviera “Sueños Futuristas” surgió porque me pareció interesante explorar cómo sería la vida de Hephaistion, y su mundo, en nuestra época, así que decidí darle la habilidad de poder ver el futuro a través de sueños pero en un escenario del siglo XXI. Ahora, el siglo XXI es un periodo importante para Hephaistion porque es el siglo en el que volvería a ver a Alexander, así que desde sus días mortales nuestra época lo ha estado llamando, por eso es que cada vez que “ve el futuro” el escenario pertenece al siglo XXI.

Desde el principio deseché la idea de que pudieran reencarnar en nuestra época porque quería apegarme a la historia de Hephaistion como vampiro y reencarnarlos hubiera arruinado ese plot.

Acerca de la pérdida de memoria de Hephaistion, estoy de acuerdo, no es realista; la idea que tuve al escribir esta historia fue la de armarla estilo ánime, de hecho yo imaginé a todos los personajes estilo ánime, y quise que fuera una historia donde pudiera pasar de todo, incluso algunas situaciones un poco inverosímiles, algo así como la serie de TV de Supernatural, o la de Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Al final de la historia el mundo no se termina, Caín sigue durmiendo en el Umbra esperando el día de la Gehena (el Fin del Mundo) pero eso no será pronto. No quise que Alexander fuera un vampiro, así que me decidí a volverlo inmortal después de que su cuerpo absorbiera todos los hechizos de preservación que Hephaistion le dio por 2 mil años. Me gusta más esta idea porque así realmente se pueden cuidar entre los dos, uno durante el día y el otro durante la noche.

Una vez más te agradezco mucho el que te hayas tomado el tiempo de escribirme, espero haber resuelto tus dudas, si no fue así, siéntete en la libertad de escribirme.

Un abrazo muy grande,
¡Feliz Navidad y Año Nuevo!
Zophiel
