Read from start to Chapter 17 and I love it. Please tell me you will be staying with this until the end...? Too many stories end up drifting away and it makes me sad at times that RL takes over and we lose what is a talent to it.
This story has had me laughing and crying in equal measure and to think that Alistair and Tabris survived the ArchDemon is great news. Will you be taking this any further, ie looking for the Demon Child etc etc.
In any case, I look forward to seeing where you go next, Antiva is a big place after all.

I am rereading this story again for the third? time. It is still wow. They each believe that they are unworthy of the gifts and attentions they receive from others. Zevran is so hungry, so protective, so yearning for each and every moment. I cannot imagine anything more him.
I try to reach for this when I write and I find that my Zev is softer, more questioning, less animalistic. I greatly appreciate your grasp of his character and how he can be very dark and yet drug back to the light by the Warden and his desire to be with her.

This story is great. I love how the characters switch narratives.

Perceptive handling of the state Zev is in at the time of the ambush. He truly has been broken by the Crows at that point. Looking forward to more.

I love the way you've modified the game dialogue to suit the scene you've set. Thinking back on the rest of the story so far, and plugging in this Withiel's concept of honor integrity, gives a new slant on previous chapters. In particular, it builds on Zev telling Anders about the difference between lust and desire for me.
And BTW since yesterday was my brithday, this was the best present ever. :D

oh wow seeing Zev like that is eerie
| millahnna chapter 16 . 2/27/2011
Strangely (or perhaps not), I find a parallel in Zevran's mercy (which is totally my next band name) in this chapter and Tabris with Alistair several chapters back. Granted Zev was absolutely brutal and cruel in a way that she was not but he set Anders free in the only way Anders could seem to accept.

Yeah when they said "show don't tell" in like every writing guide, ever, this is what they meant.

Your Zevran is a creature of excessive beauty; that he completely understood the myriad complexities in Tabris sleeping with Alistair was just gorgeous.
And I couldn't praise that battle scene with the Archdemon enough if I wrote a collegiate essay on why it was awesome.

Reading the last few chapters, my first reaction was, "Wow, Zevran is all sorts of psycho." but thinking about it, it makes a lot of sense. It's a good portrayal. I really have enjoyed this story!
| Raven Jadewolfe chapter 16 . 1/19/2011
oh wow, I am stunned...in a good way though :-)
| Fluidfyre chapter 16 . 1/18/2011
Ohh this made me so sad for Anders, who I have come to adore more and more. I love the way you shift between first person. Great emotions & dialogue of Ander's thoughts. He was really the star of this chapter to me.

woot! go Zev!
| Jannifer chapter 14 . 1/1/2011
Oh my, you've done it again. Just when I think you've perfectly captured the Zevran I see in my head, you show me yet another side to him. This chapter is both terrible and wonderful. It is terrible because it shows so clearly how much Withiel loves and needs both Anders and Zevran. It is wonderful because we can plainly see that although Anders has a piece of her heart, only Zevran shares her soul. Yes, that statement may be a little over the top, but there it is. This piece digs more deeply into what binds two people together, what so many of us dream love should be even as we know that it's seldom this romantic, this all-encompassing. Once again, my dear, you've outdone yourself. Bravissimo!

Wow, I really want Zev to kick Anders' ass, lol.
