You've got me hooked. This site is missing great Thief stories like this one.

Grrrr...ended too soon!

I'm not even familiar with this particular game, but this was so incredibly well written and engaging I could not stop reading. One of the best fics I've read on this site, one of the better steampunk stories -period- and despite the evil cliffhanger, I enjoyed this immensely. If you ever decide to continue with this, I'd read the heck out of it.

Please update soon! The cliffhanger is killing me!

It's really too bad this is unfinished - you've captured Garrett's voice rather well.
| selene344 chapter 4 . 3/2/2013
Oh no! Garrett has been shot! DX
| selene344 chapter 3 . 3/2/2013
And so our plot thickens. :)
Yes, I have an over fondness for bad puns. :P
I really ams enjoying this, how your twisting the old stories/games into it, and I really do love how you are writting the characters.
And making Garrett see his soul, which we all know, he spends his entire games trying to deny having . :)
| selene344 chapter 2 . 3/2/2013
I am very into this story. :)
| selene344 chapter 1 . 3/2/2013
Yay, someones writing fanfiction for THEIF!
And might I say, you write it extr-awesomely well. :)
And you seem to have Garretts character down pat.

Man... There is not enough fics for this fandom. You're off to a great start with this fic. I hope someday you will come back to it... I would love to read more. Alas, I, too, am guilty of setting aside fanfics. Then I usually forget where I was going with the plot line and they sit rotting forever in a folder inside a folder inside a small partition on my storage drive, never to see the light of day ever again. *eyes my thief fic of about 10k words that sits unfinished for four years and has been transferred to three different computers in that time* I can't believe it's been that long since I have played those games. They are by far my all-time favourite.
The only thing of critique that I can give you is: instead of using hyphens to offset phrases, try parentheses instead. I kept thinking you were hyphenating words and stuff. Or an "em dash" which is essentially a longer hyphen. That would work too. _
It's mostly a stylistic thing. However you end up doing it is ultimately up to you. I tend to use dashes when the phrase I wish to emphasize is at the end of the sentence, and parentheses when the phrase interrupts a sentence.
Keep up the good work. *bookmarks this fic on the off chance it will be continued*

This is so well done! I love that you're tackling a story after Deadly Shadows. I love your writing style and the way you keep to Garrett's personality perfectly. Please don't stop writing! I want so badly to finish this!
| Desiree1717 chapter 4 . 11/6/2011
Wow! I really like this one! You've got a few minor spelling mistakes, but for the most part it really is excellent. I hope you finish it, because I'm itching to know what happens to Garrett.

I am so glad to have stumbled upon such a precious piece...
THANK YOU SO MUCH

I must say, it's great to hear Garrett's voice again! You write him very comfortably, and the familiar tone - as least for me - removes all the awkwardness that can often accompany first-person tales. I surely wasn't expecting to see Perry show up! You've already worked quite a cast of characters into your story in fresh roles (interesting what you did with the inspector!), and it's been a great fun to read. The boy is a curious new addition, as well.
Nice job! I'm really enjoying this.

What I like about this chapter is the amount of tension that builds to the final moment at the end. This is a wonderfully paced chapter and a good edition to the story.
A few suggestions:
1)While I lay in that strange dream, the night had grown old and ragged as a sick whore's smile. I emerge from my hole into air that smells of morning, and the sky to the east is growing pale over the sprawl of the City.
- There is a tense change between these sentences. 'Emerge' should be 'emerged' to keep with the past tense voice of the chapter.
2) Nobody knows who they corpse was.
- 'The corpse'
3) , I allow myself to be reminded that I'm directly responsible for most it.
- The sentence feels like a hanging thought. Instead:
", I allow myself to be reminded that I am directly responsible for most of the damage done."
Kudos on a fantastic chapter: Jazz
