This is wonderful. I love the way you wrote so that it wasn't first person, and yet Rennac's sarcastic voice clearly comes through, especially in the opening paragraphs. You nailed both of their characters perfectly.

I immensely enjoyed this story. Your characterization of the two was spot-on and wonderful.

Fantastic! Loved the cute narrative at the end . He does have a heart :3
| Queen Lua chapter 1 . 6/7/2012
This is precious. Laugh-out-loud funny in many parts, and really well-constructed throughout: the dynamic between L'Arachel and Rennac was pitch-perfect.
I can't say much more, other than I'm really glad I stumbled on this piece.

I'd forgotten how fond of this piece I was.
Sorry I have nothing more of value to add.

I really enjoyed this. I love how, just as in the game, you've created that balance between L'Arachel and Rennac of entertaining ridiculousness and endearing earnestness. As your other reviewers have said, I too loved your attention to their dialogue, their mannerisms, and their little quirks, as well as your portrayal of their love/hate relationship that always seems to endure. The brief mentions of Dolza were quite a welcome addition too, and rounded out this thoroughly charming exploration of these two characters and their unique relationship. Overall, excellent work. :D

Great job! Very funny, and very believable XD
| Measured chapter 1 . 5/14/2011
This is a really nice prolog to the game, explaining away the little details such as why they were separated and so on. The characterization really shines here, and the banter is top notch.

Well done. Read this on a recommendation and find it well worth the read.
| Imoo chapter 1 . 5/10/2011
This is fun. I'm not sure it could ever happen in canon, but you keep L'Arachel and Rennac in character. I love L'Arachel and her craziness. And I like the reference to Rennac's ending.
| R Amythest chapter 1 . 5/9/2011
I liked this, very much, immediately and thoroughly. The dialogue itself was witting and entertaining and kept my interest the whole time. L'Arachel's gradually increasing flashes of earnestness were both very believable (even considering that it is L'Arachel) and touching. Same to the subtle hints throughout that Rennac isn't *entirely* unwilling, and the conclusion that wraps that all up.
At the same time, it has L'Arachel and her gang at their best, climbing cliffs with their teeth (in Rennac's imagination, anyway), being obstinate about reality, and battles of pride. L'Arachel's dynamic with Rennac is pitch perfect.
This thing is incredibly composed, and I liked it a lot.

I really, really enjoyed this! I was especially impressed with how you wrote L'Arachel. Often, people make her way too...shrill, I guess. But you didn't! And the result was charming.
The one line that I absolutely adored was the part where Rennac imagined Dozla "chortling inanely" as he climbed the cliff face. Absolutely hysterical!
