|Reviews for Rend|
| Isodrink chapter 53 . 2/10
I wish to give you a small review.
This story was one hell of a good story. I am full of praise, but I don't know where to start or where to end.
It was a great story, many good ideas, many good characters.
I want you the best of feelings and to be proud of your creations, since this was nothing short of a full fledged fantasy novel in the TLoZ universe.
I only wish to share some points with you since I think you might find them interesting, even though the story has been finished for more than a year.
I actually loved Opal the Render as a character. In fact, I think she was one of the most fascinating characters by far that you created in this story, en par with Vaati and Thistle (I found Links character good, but not as appealing as those two). And the whole struggle Light faction vs Dark faction.
So I was pretty saddened by the fact that you killed her in the end, since she was something I always find appealing: Neutral in a world full of "good" and "evil". Someone who has been part of that but failed to see the sense in continuing. There were so many things I liked about her. The fact that she was kind of a resigned warrior, that she played with everyone, that she partly remained mysterious etc. I think it's a shame you couldn't use her further for anything and simply used her as a small plot element.
I'd love to see her again, having somehow survived the whole ordeal (after all she can manipulate space and time) in another story, if that was possible.
Another credit I wanted to give you was for Vaatis characters. I love how all of your storys are somehow intertwined and how you manage to fill Vaatis nonexistant character in the game with so, so much life. Thank you for that, this story and everything you have written (I might write another review when I'm finised with other storys, I've read "Tainted hearts" already and am greatly interested in your Vaati).
Anyway, good luck with further writing ;)

Great, amazing, awesome story! Do you think you could make a Vaati story were he is fully evil? And overcome the goddesses, while becoming a God? Something to think about.

Wow, I really meant to leave a review a long time ago, but I never got around to it. Sorry 'bout that. In any case this story was fantastic. I loved the time shifts and how you personified the monsters, especially Argorok and the Helmaroc King.
Thistle was a fun character. A thoroughly and uncommonly stable and actually enjoyable OC, not causing anyone to step out of their character. Here's to silly Wizzrobes!
Also, despite what people seem to keep telling you, is nothing like Kefka: Thistle's motivated by his inferiority complex, Kefka's motivated by his all-consuming passion for destroying anything he sees in the most horrific and painful way possible. Yes, you should play the game. Play the one on GBA, Final Fantasy VI on a GBA emulator, you just won't find it in stores. It tells the story better than the SNES version.
And finally: Vaati. Was. Perfect. Just like you, I always felt that Vaati went bad because of Ezlo's strict and overprotective actions. If Ezlo had provided better guidance, Vaati would never have gone mad with stolen power. In fact, I can see Vaati as a hero quite easily, which is what caught my attention in this fic.
Thank you for writing such an incredible Vaati story. It was worth every minute of time you put into it and more.

I've been refusing to close the tab for days now. Because closing the tab means accepting it's over...and I don't want that.
I'll...just...sit here and wait for OA instead then, eh...?
Oh and I really loved the imaginary conversation between Ezlo and Vaati here and the way you pictured their relationship.

"In a remote place, somewhere, a breeze began to blow."
At the computer, all over the world, fangirls began to cry.
My eyes are watery because my dinner burnt my tongue that's all! This chapter was a nice end, even though it's so sad. You had me all teary and then you go and post a sneak peek and get me all happy again. Did this really start in 2010? Has that much time passed already... I feel old. Thank you so much for writing all of this and continuing to make more! I love this story [and all of your other ones as well] so much. I am sad that this story has ended but... I can't wait to see Thistle again. He's such a cutie [ew what did I just say, I'm being ooc .]. My cat would also like to thank you because it was your story chapters that would would keep me in place so that she could sleep on my lap. I wanted to jump up and down while reading this chapter and even more so with that sneak peek. Thank you so much and I hope you have fun with the next story! I'll be waiting!

Are you kidding me ? Rend isn't over, isn't it ?
... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !
| Reiko x 3 chapter 53 . 8/29/2012
T_T Weh... now its over...
Dark: Gonna read Avilux again?
Damn straight. Vaati kicks ass and I can actually see him being willing to tolerate OoT Link.
Dark: Cause there's a plausible argument that his motivation for saving Hyrule is to get back at Ganon for murdering the closest thing he had to a father, making him an outcast due to the fact that, although raised as a Kokiri, he isn't one and has no idea how to be a Hylian, and generally screwing him over?
Pretty much. And let's not forget the crazy mess that is Majora's Mask.
Dark: ...Oot Link's life kinda sucks doesn't it...
Thus why Vaati could tolerate him. He has a noticeable dark side. It's why he's my favorite Link followed closely by TP Link.
Dark: Because he also ends up getting stuck with the hero job?
Yep. I'm pretty sure he had no desire to be forced into the hero position, but who can fight the whims of those crazy Goddesses.
Dark: Makes me glad we aren't them.
...If we were Hyrule would be so friggin screwed...

fantastic ending well done W
| 11SnowLeopard11 chapter 53 . 8/28/2012
I've read every single one of your stories so far except for When I Return, and it feels like such a bittersweet ending now that this one is done.
Possible rewrite of The Unresolved, hmm? Absolutely love the way you've been connecting your stories so far, so seeing a rewrite of that to match this up a bit more would be awesome to read.
After about a year or so from first reading both OA stories that preview was great, and man, now I'm really thinking about that fortune Thistle's made. I can understand all of that fortune to where the story is at now, and now I'm seriously hoping that The Magician gets The World card, but really, that's going to be a looong way from where the story is currently at, hopefully... I've also been able to narrow it down to who the The Reversed Magician is to two people, and I'm leaning towards one of them right now.
... I think I'm starting to understand Thistle now very well...
Well, now to go back to re-reading Avilux and OA. Never going to re-read Recollections though, as it came extremely close to having me cry, and gave me a very empty feeling. Kinda like when someone close I know dies.
Btw, before I leave this story for a long time, with a possible re-read for the future for only fics I absolutely f*****g love, I may as well mention this: I've been getting back into drawing lately this year, and have just gotten a sudden inspiration from this last chapter and I now want to draw something with nearly every single character from your stories that have held some importance to the plots and whatnot. If I actually do get around to it, as school's coming up, I'll end up putting it on Deviantart. /end 1:00 in the mourning rant.
... BAI BAI for now...

I have to say, Rend has been a wonderful story to read, and a marked improvement from Beyond Centuries. Your characters developed nicely throughout the story, the plot was much more engaging, and the closure, though open ended, was very satisfying. Thistle turned out to be one of my favorite characters of yours, only just outmatched by Dugal (Who is great on so many levels), and I'm looking forward to seeing them both in the same story. The final deviation made me laugh pretty hard, too.
Now I have to go reread Avilux and what you have of OA. Both of them are loads of fun, and I can't wait for more!
Thanks for sharing your work with us!

;A; You honor me, my fleetage. But I certainly won't complain about the free advertisement! ... Now I just need to get off my butt and write...
Anyways, the end... Isn't it weird how time flies? It seems like just yesterday you wrote the original, and now here we are at the final chapter of the rewrite (which is twice as awesome as the original). Ah, but if we are dinosaurs, I wanna be a tyrannosaurus rex, rawr. :3
| Lady Fai chapter 53 . 8/28/2012
I'm kinda sad it ended. This was a wonderfully fantastic story. And Occult Ascendancy looks very interesting.
Why thank you! Knowing that you liked my reviews gives me warm fuzzies.
| Astral S. Kepeire chapter 52 . 8/28/2012
I actually can't remember most of the original battle, but this version was fantastic. I didn't review last time because of... lazy reasons, but this one was too good to not. I really liked the way Vaati pretty much lost all hope that they were going to make it out of there at the beginning of the battle. It's not really like him, but given the circumstances it was really appropriate.
Also, the opal weak point... is that new? I'm trying to remember if it was in the original and I don't think it was. Regardless it was a great idea, and the entire battle felt like it should have been something in a tLoZ game. In fact, Rend would make a /fantastic/ fangame.
So just a wrap-up chapter now? Since you've finished it and the cover it should be up soon, right? I can't wait.
