I love this fic so much!
| Katie chapter 35 . 8/9
So, I loved the first eighteen chapters a lot- the way they fell in love, the touching, the slow-burn of it. Elphaba was a bit dim about it, possibly because she'd never truly had a friend, less a boy, and was confused about it. Your Elphaba felt genuine, though too easily cranky/riled up/annoying & not as insecure as she should be, in my opinion, because she rarely reflected on her green skin. Fiyero was perfectly charming, and nice, and I felt him.
But then... the kiss. I had been waiting for it, but I had expected them to kiss before the mariage, to break of the engagement, and poor Nessa's heart. From that moment on I liked the fic less, though still wonderfully written, it was filled with cheating and deceit and Elphaba would, I feel, never do that to her sister. I haven't read the book, so my apraisal of their characters is only musical-based, but in the musical Fiyero and Elphaba never do anything as long as G(a)linda is still in the picture, and though he does breaks her heart when he runs away with Elphaba, they never cheat physically, are only in love emotionally.
Still, I wanted to review because even though I liked the second part less, I stuck with it, I still enjoyed it, and that doesn't happen often for me with Multi-chapter fics. You still managed to put down an intruiging plot, a well-written story, and a happy (if less satisfactory) ending. Thank you for writing, thank you for sharing, I am now going to your profile to enjoy your other works.
I hope I do not offend you with this review. I sincerely liked it!

Words cannot describe how much I love this. (I also think a companion piece from the fantastic Fiyero would be awesome, but that's just my wishful thinking.) Thanks for writing!

I HAVE REREAD THIS THING SO MUCH AND IT STILL MAKES ME SO HAPPY EVERY TIME I DO.
Seriously, I rarely reread fanfiction. Much less something this big in its entirety. But here I am, having just finished my THIRD read through in about 2 weeks. I am trash, absolute garbage, and I thank you for doing such wonderful things with the English language, and these characters.
A to you!

The fact that the reader is able to see Fiyero fall in love with Elphaba while she falls for him when you ONLY tell it from her POV speaks volumes to your ability and skill. A for you!

I love d way each word is laced with humour. Everything was movin at a nice funny steady pace except the last three chapters. I blv u rushed it and finished it in an average way cause I was expecting more. Anyway kudos again

Um, continued (embarrassed cough):
...in keeping with their previous actions. At any rate, a very satisfying story to read, certainly. You have a straightforward yet extremely charming way of writing that draws readers into the tale :)

How can I express my adoration for this story? You expressed every bit of Elphaba and Fiyero's barely-restrained desire so perfectly; you somehow kept Nessa a sympathetic character despite her religious sentiments and disapproval of Elphaba's actions; and Aruc - well, I absolutely love him to bits.
The ending was adorably perfect, although I was holding out for Nessa and Aruc to fall in love, but I suppose that wouldn't be in keep

Okay, I really did enjoy this story though the sudden switch at the end did have me confused. The play on words was wonderful...but the King 's sudden lack of wrath came a little quickly for me. I wish there had been a little more context-I mean he thought his son's feelings were a delusion and had been poised against Fae by her father-who is also suddenly fond of her. From treason to the future queen seems a slight stretch without someone, say Yero's mother, interceding. That being said, this was a treat. Honestly. Now where are those Elpharic updates?

This story was brilliant and I'm crying
| SunRise19 chapter 1 . 1/26/2013
Man, I really want to read this it's so different but my problem is I know nothing much about the book. Oh wy could you not have written this in musicalvirse?
Now now, please, do not take that the wrong way at all! I'm a big fan really, truly I am! I just, well, know not much about the book..and musical Nessa is different from the book nessa. Not just physically ither..Awesome plot idea!
P.S. I haven't finished reading substitution..but, averic's character is seriously rubbing me the wrong way..(again, it's NOT you! I put NOT in all caps so you know it..) but substitution has given me an idea for a Bessa one-or possibly 2 chaptered fic..in which i will give credit where it is due. :)
A big fan truly!
