Well, I loved the story, and I'm a die-hard Fenris fan. His character was rich and great, and honestly more "human" for his faults and fears. I also adore Carver. I really feel that people who bash his character never tried to understand him. Your Carver was perfect to me.

It has been interesting and edifying to read a version of events as they might have happened if Hawke had not been there. As it happens I agree with your assessment of Fenris' character if he does not have Hawke as a friend and guide to temper him. In my opinion, your explanations for what might happen to the in-game history without the main character seem true to the story. I don't necessarily like seeing Hawke so vulnerable, but I understand the choices.
I normally withhold comments until I'm finished reading a completed story so I can be more comprehensive, but I wanted to let you know that I have thoroughly enjoyed your work.

You have such an eloquence with words that I often find myself at the end of your chartered stories and your one shots always greedy for more.

Never in my life had I shipped Carver/Fenris (Carvis? Fenver? Farver? Cenris? I think I'll go with Fenver.). But I most certainly do now. But I digress from my original intent.
This is awesome, to be blunt. Seriously. I just. Man. Characterization is spot on, given circumstances, Varric is awesome, I nearly cried when I found out about Anders even though I could understand, and I'm just generally in awe over this story. This is everything I'd ever sought in a Sebastian/Hawke fic. You've really done well and expect more notifications from me favoriting and following other stories.

I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoy "all" of your writings of Sebastian and Hawke. This is one of the stories I reread often.
I really hope Bioware has looked at the stories on this site and realizes that the fans would love to have some Sebastian and Hawke in Dragon Age lll.
Thank you for your time and effort.
Have a great day :)

This piece had me bouncing off the walls. Everything including weapon-smiting, foot-stomping, hair-pulling, sighs, tears, jeers, fears, cheers, righteous indignation and a whole bunch more that I can't even think of right now. I spent so much time immersed in my reactions that when the final oh-so-fitting confrontational conclusion happened, I realized I was emotionally exhausted and that you write one mighty fine tale.

If Celeste is gone, she needs a major timeout and a significant transfusion of brain matter.

Apparently, you got a lot of grief for this story. I'm late to the party as usual, but I appreciated the characterizations and the lack of...easy outcomes for characters who were introduced to us as broken and imperfect. Thanks so much for sharing this story!
| DarkJewelRomani chapter 20 . 10/4/2012
For an AU this was an extremely engaging fiction that you presented to us. I will first acknowledge that you gave history and depth to each character as well as an engaging purpose. I respect your opinion as an author and so i want you to know that for good or ill I enjoyed your story. I was angry, at first about your display of Fenris but ultimately you did carry his cold personality throughout the story. I was absolutely heartbroken with what happened to Anders though i am first and foremost a Fenris fan. But then I tend to like my men with a dab of darkness. This was a great read thank you for giving us this work.

It's good to see that you won't compromise yourself or your writing; in my opinion, the piece was perfect. Emotional, heart breaking, and amazing all at once. I admit to having to remove the 'Fenris glasses' myself, but I agree with your characterization of him. The 'Fenris glasses' make us blind to the hatred in him, and how he holds onto that, almost desperately. There's a reason a lot of us often compare him to a wounded wolf; more liable to bite the hand that is offered than take it.
I loved everything about this piece. Down to the little chit Colette who irritated the hell out of me. I say job well done! Amazing, as your writing always is. There's a reason I'm a fan. :)

This Prince was amazing. Quite cute. Different from what I am used to. But good all the same. Oh Fenris..It's terrible, but I'm such girl that I want to heal him. The bad boy with the horrid past. I like that everything was...good in the end. Fenris ran off with his love...which I didn't see that pairing coming.

I finally got time to finish this. I must say, it was brilliant.
It does not matter what we wanted, as some sort of wish fulfillment, or favorite character we see, as we wish to see them; it is however, about good story telling. A well laid out plot, and excellent continuity. This story held all of this and more.
I very much like the growth you wrote in Sebastian. I could honestly see him much more than man and ruler, than a chantry boy.
Your very own creation, Celeste was well crafted. She was easy to endear to and understand the workings of her mind as the tale unfolded.
Carver.. I must admit, I like Carver. There is just something about that guy.. And you wrote him perfectly.
Anders! omgosh.. That was amazingly creative.
Thank you very much for an amazing tale.

So far, I'm really liking this AU. I also like the edge to Sebastian's personality. I'd say you wrote in just cause. Four years of him brooding over Hawke missing, and now this? it makes perfect sense.
| Viccagirl chapter 20 . 4/27/2012
You are an inspiration, honestly. Everything I've read of yours has been amazing. Personally, I didn't really like what happened with Fenris, but you are absolutely right that it was YOUR writing. I did however like that you stuck to your guns and didn't back peddle with him. I am a fan of yours and look forward to reading more from you!

As soon as I started reading chapter 7 "Till The World Ends" by Britney Spears came on! I thought it was funny. :-)
