A very well written story and the characters are well portrayed. I hope to see what happens next sometime.

I really enjoy this and I do wish you would continue.

I laughed so hard at that last part. I could so imagine Myste falling out of bed and managing to hit Alberich in the process.
Those two are such complete opposites in many ways, yet they seem, dare I say it, perfect for each other. Now, if only they would stop dancing around it and admit it already.

Ahhh! Why did you stop writing?!
| Herald fan chapter 12 . 4/12/2012

If the Heralds are still recovering from the Tedrel Wars, how is it that Talia is Queen's Own? She doesn't get her Whites (and complete control of her Gift) until well over a decade after the Tedrel Wars. And by then they are concerned with Ancar. I think your chronology could use some work.

This is wonderful. Excellent pacing, good characterizations and very neat double plot.
I cannot wait for more.
| MCH chapter 1 . 1/6/2012
OK I stayed up way pass my bed time got to chapter 12 and clicked the button and it stayed on Chapter 12. Not good I want to know more.
You got both of them just right and I been wishing Misty would have had the time to outline their story. But you've started doing it and a good job your making of it.
So please please get writing and get this story finished.

I am so glad to see another chapter and do hope you have more to come..I've been so patient! The plot is really thickening now something is going on and I SO WANT TO KNOW WHAT..I really admire the way you've caught the characters involved so sure of their place in work so unsure of each other and their own feelings. I want to know why the usually interferring Companions are being so quiet..not like them at all lol. Also
Alberich, if his gut tells him somethings not right should definitely listen to it and using Myste as back up would be better for both of them...can't wait for more it's so long since Mercedes wrote a Valdemar book this was such a gift, hope you find the time and the muse to finish it.
Thanks for sharing

This has been a long time coming and was worth the wait. But don't use that as an excuse to take another couple of months to post the next chapter - please?
I did like the temporary lightening of tone that this paragraph introduced:
"But perhaps you could widen your range of brushing.: came the wryly pained mindvoice of her Companion. : It would be unsightly for a Companion to be seen having a bare spot. People may start to think I've developed mange."

Wow! I have only just come across this lovely piece of work, and already I cannot get enough. I really hope you write some more, and soon. I particularly like the way that you have held true to the characters and their personalities. Both of them so secure in their own abilities and skills, and yet so insecure in their emotions and self-image. I cannot wait to see this to whatever end you bring it to, and I cannot wait to see what finally happens when their misunderstandings finally come to light..HUGS!

Oh no! How terrible! I was writing one like this one (a little different but the gist was the same) and I just stumbled across this... and I love it! I think I like it better than mine. I can't wait to read what happens next!
| sackvillebaggins chapter 11 . 8/17/2011
This is a WONDERFUL story! it has the same feel as if it were written by Lackey herself. You even have Alberich's grammar right! I did notice, however that it hasn't been updated in a while... *hint hint*
| TheDarkEmpress chapter 11 . 5/13/2011
I really am enjoying this fic. :) Please update!
| berniej chapter 11 . 3/21/2011
Oh I am glad for another update I was getting worried! I do hope that they manage to communicate better, who says talking mind to mind is easy! Myste poor girl is going to have to find some inner strength before Alberich convinces himself he has nothing to offer her at all... even though she was the one who was rejected in the past he's the one who needs the reassurance look how stuborn he can be, just ask Kantor! I do hope that working together again gives them the, I was going to say nudge but in their case I'm thinking almighty shove in the right direction! It may take direct interference from The Sunlord himself to get them together lol Thanks for the update I look forward to more soon
