| Chitana chapter 40 . 5/22/2012
I honestly forgot about this fic until I saw the update in my inbox. I was all "holy fuck I love that fic! Where has s/he been!"
Tl:dr? Great chapter, great fic
| Akatsuki Celeste chapter 40 . 5/22/2012
Hurrah, a new chapter! :D Some entertaining dialogue between Leliana and Zevran, and some nice smoldering Warden/Zevran at the end. Looking decidedly forward to the next chapter and seeing just how that 'talk' is going to go.
And no worries about being busy! Sometimes life just grabs you by the back of your neck and shakes you around, and you have to prioritize in order to get anything done. That's why author alert exists - so that we can open up our emails, see the update alert, and clap our hands in glee. Or...maybe that's just me...
Also, just as a note - your story is infinitely more interesting than moss. .

I was so happy to see a new chapter. :) Please continue updating. I would really like to see more Zevran and the Warden.
| MsBarrows chapter 40 . 5/22/2012
So glad to see another update for this! And yup, any time you manage to get an update done, I'll still be happily diving in to read it as soon as I get the alert :)
Loved the development in this, with Zevran slowly beginning to face his real feelings about the Warden. I've always thought that his romance was one of the best-written of all the Dragon Age romances, and you're definitely doing it justice in your writing. And of course now you have me looking forward to the next update and hopefully seeing him finding out if he did understand the Warden's offer correctly ;)

...Okay, look. I realize it's been a WHILE since you've updated this story, which means you might have abandoned it. HOWEVER. Ever since I discovered it yesterday, I've been glued to my laptop's monitor, ignoring all external forms of life while I devoured what happens to be the first decent piece of fanfiction on this fucking website. So... *puts puppy face mask on* ...moar, please?
Seriously. This image explains my predicament:
SEE THAT MIDDLE CATEGORY? It's usually why I don't start reading fanfics if they're not complete - because then I'm left with the spoon halfway to my mouth, saliva pooling on my keyboard while I fight the fact that I have no way to reach and devour the tasty treat. It's my dream to become a copy editor one day, so it's really hard for me to read badly written fanfiction.
Your story is VERY well done. The plot is intere- no, that's wrong. It's BEWITCHINGLY CAPTIVATING and I absolutely love the way you have threaded the love story through events that actually happen in the game. You use their lines from the game, meaning you keep them IN CHARACTER. (I praised the gods, truly, and I can't really call myself religious.) And let's not mention the spar between Zev and the Warden, which had GarrusFuckingVakarian painted all over it. (Sexiest alien ever.) But I digress.
If I knew where you lived, I'd camp myself outside your house with banners and posters, begging for more. Luckily, I'm too lazy to be that creepy, so I'll just leave this review. PLEASE. MOAR.
I mean, you're almost done! :D Technically all you're missing are like 1 or 2 chapters! The earring is re-offered, they make happy happy lemons together, and you can feel free to skip to the ending afterwards and then um, and then... Crap, maybe 3 chapters. Or 4.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. I guess it's time for me to get ready for work, lest I be late because I was busy writing you this novel. My dear Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness, you have awoken the hungry fangirl beast in my soul and it is now, technically, your responsibility to sate it with more chapters. (When did my plea turn into a demand? I missed that part.)
But even if you don't write more, it has been an amazing experience, and I'm very happy to have stumbled across your work. Thank you :)

you are an amazing author and I trully want to know what hapens next :)

Woman! Why is this story not updated. I just spent the last... four hours reading this wonderful, amazing story only for there to be no more clickable next buttons. Gah~ I'm of firm believe that this story must be continued. I need it to continue. It is a brillant story so far and I am truly in love with it.
Also... Might I propose a request; aside from the updates, I mean?
I think if you should have the time, you should definitely write a M!Hawke/Fenris story. I would love to see your rendition of Dragon Age 2 with that pairing.
| Accidental Zombi chapter 39 . 1/24/2012
I absolutely love this fic! You really have a good feel for writing the characters realistically in regards to the game but what you have added and extended on from the source material are definitely my favorite parts.
| cellardoor1000 chapter 39 . 1/24/2012
I think this is the third time I've read this!
It's a great story, and your writing flows really well :)
| Dream Trance chapter 18 . 1/5/2012
Hahahahah! I can't breathe! Hahahaha! Oh god, give me a second... *snickers*
I'm at the part where things are getting very heated between the Warden and Zevran when the dog and Oghren come barging in. Haha. I love that drunken dwarf so much, he's just so hilarious XD When I heard the whole "the dog stole my pants" story in the game, I literally laughed for two minutes.
And then to see that same story blindside me completely in this story, oh, hahahahahahah! I'm seconds away from falling off the couch from laughing so hard, and let me tell you, it is not easy to fall off /this/ couch. Hahaha! I just can't get over it! XD
...I hope I didn't wake anybody up...*snickers*
| EliseArainai chapter 39 . 1/3/2012
ACK! Cliffhanger! XD
This is a really good story, and I can't wait to see how Zevran rescues the Warden. Keep it up! :)
| Hiloxxx chapter 1 . 12/27/2011
~Amazing . Amazing amazing amazing, I've re-read the whole story like 20 times in the past 3 nights...
| Mytay chapter 39 . 12/14/2011
Oh, Zevran's pain is palpable here; given his background, of course he would assume the worst about the Warden's rejection, but gah, it doesn't lessen the urge to smack him 'round the head, make him see what's really going on :D
Another 'oh, Zevran' moment as he examines and appreciated the instruments of torture. :) *shakes head* Much like with the in-game dialogue, his attitude towards death and all the manners in which to achieve it and enjoy it, didn't lessen my love of him even slightly :)
And despite all inner turmoil, our elf goes and does spectacularly in battle, saving the Warden's life - how I love these two. You made Howe just as despicable, if not more so, as he was in the game. I applaud you. When I played as a Cousland, I kinda wanted a little more final dialogue to really dig in the defeat, because wow, did I ever hate that bastard.
" "Then there's the problem of getting married and begetting an heir... while I have no doubt that you'd look very pretty in a dress, I don't think any children will come from that." " *laughs* Hee, and Zevran has his epiphany (thought it wasn't instant :D). God, that was perfect.
"Zevran didn't know if he should clap his hands in wry admiration, or just strangle the Warden for manipulating him." Or screw him senseless and then ride off into the sunset ;D Every word preceding this was marvellous. His examination of how their relationship progressed, how his feelings had grown, despite his not acknowledging them . . . oh, so, so marvellous. I want such happy things for this elf.
And then, cliffhanger! Oooh, is Zevran going to come running in to save him? With Leliana, or Morrigan, or Oghren . . . whoever, really - because that would be oodles of fun :D Either way, these two chapters were awesome. Thank you again for writing such a fabulous story!
| Mytay chapter 38 . 12/14/2011
This updated just as I was in the midst of writing essays and studying for exams, and it was absolute torture not being able to read it. So I gave in ;D And with exams well behind me, I am coming back to leave you the review you so richly deserve!
One thing I truly love about this story is the richness of Zevran's backstory - whether it be expansions on in-game dialogue, or your own, it's all written and exposed so wonderfully, and it makes me love the painted elf all the more. The little glimpse into his and Taliesen's past relationship, for example, made me ache for *both* of them.
The moment when Zevran spots the vulnerable point in the Grey Warden's armour . . . wow, that was particularly awesome. "There was a quiet, expectant look in his eyes, as if he..." I don't know how to quite describe it, but it was amazing and lovely, considering Zevran's decision :)
But probably my favourite part of this chapter was Zevran's continued, obstinate refusal (or perhaps obliviousness?) to see the true depth of the Grey Warden's feelings for him. *sigh* Oh Zevran. But yes, it was both wonderful and frustrating to read that exchange between the Warden and the elf. It makes me eager for my next favourite conversation - the one that involves reconciliation (and, well, a sort-of-proposal ;D) because I know you will do it justice. You've been so incredible - this story is *so* incredible.
And this chapter was well worth the wait - and to get a second update not long after? *squeals* Like an early Christmas present! *moves on to next chapter*
