Well, to be honest... I was pleasantly surprised. I had my doubts about the threesome working but it was actually really well laid out. Also the fact that Duo still has mixed feelings for Trowa and that Heero knows he'll forgive Trowa in the future because he's his soulmate... That was really good, it shows that, unlike in all other fics, sex doesn't necessarily mean you made up and are good again.
I can definitely see the threesome continuing, in a good light. As for that empheral who is in Hilde's coven and is a servant of Zechs... Very mysterious. :)
well hope you update soon.

Dayum, that was hot! I hope there's more where that came from. Personally, I'm not worried about this going in the direction of a particular urban fantasy series that has been mentioned in the comments. Mainly because Duo is magnanimous, and that other character... is not. Please keep writing this as you see fit.

I've been reading every story you update (far too few!) and, to be honest, it doesn't matter what pairing you write I will read it. I used to be a dyed in the wool 1x2 fan and really didn't care for 3x4, mainly due to the extreme feminization (word? who cares) of Quatre. But if it was 1x5,4x2 whatever I really enjoy your writing style and how you make the characters recognisable but new all at the same time.
People are going to complain that they don't get the story their way but for every one of those you get twenty reading and loving it ;) We're just generally awful at commenting a compliment. It's been proven easier to complain than compliment apparently - bit depressing but what the hey I hope I re-address the balance somehow :)
LOVE this story and don't get bogged down in the flames. Try gundam wing groups on LJ, there's quite a few die hard fans still who enjoy a new take on characters there xxx

I think this is currently one of my favorite stories. It's well written and creative. Don't worry about readers' liking the parings or not. Everyone has an opinion, but they aren't writing the story, so you can pair up whoever you want. As for me, as long as Heero and Duo are together I don't care who else joins in the fun. _ Keep up the good work and good luck with the move.

Yes! 1x2x3! I love you! They are just so...*pants heavily* HOT together! There's hardly any threesomes with this mix, I have searched the web before. I love 1x2 but it's easy to overdose on it, and sadly there just isn't enough 2x3 in the world even though I think they are amazing together.
By the way I'm just as fascinated by your storyline line as I am with the pairings. The intriguing plot, the attention to detail, the perfect characterisations, I'm enthralled by it all. Your writing style has sucked me in and it's not letting me go, and I am a willing captive. I'm honestly in awe of you.

Hey, I'm just grateful you were able to update THIS week. I thought you'd said something about "not before Saturday," and I was pining for more, but resigned. So...YAY!
And you go right ahead with your threesome plan. You're making it very realistic. Duo does NOT wish to share, or be shared, and he's fighting every step of the way. But even Heero can tell that there's a pull towards Trowa...one that Duo can't fully resist. And the fact that Heero's being a good sport about it is both sweet and cool. He really is smart enough to know Duo's feelings for him are long-term and well-established, and that even the addition of a come-lately Soul Mate won't undermine or destroy it. He's so wonderfully SECURE. I like that. He knows Duo well enough to know Duo won't CHANGE and switch lovers. He may have to adapt to having two of them. But the relationships are different enough that they won't detract from the other. Of course, the bit of Alpha posturing is bound to happen. But that's one of those things they'll have to work around eventually.
Hope your move goes smoothly and you find time/energy to write. I'm struggling with the next chapter of "Smoky" in the meantime, and hope to post something soon myself. Sending positive energy your way and mine!

This chapter was really well made, thank you for the hard work you put into this. Also congrats on the new house and I hope everything goes well!

I am so sorry for the late review...school needed my full attention. I really love chapter nine. So Trowa did do some explaining...it was interesting to hear his backstory. Of course Heero already has a plan for body disposal. Suggestions and illusions...interesting powers...I really like that idea. Oh no...poor Trowa...will he be okay? I can't wait for the next chapter.
Happy Writings, Hellfire13

You have no idea how happy I am at how fast you update! There was a lot in this chapter and I'm still trying to retain it :) and that's not a bad thing! I had suspicions that Trowa was trying to use Duo somehow and that he was falling in love with him... but what to do! Heero or Trowa? and what with the whole soul mate thing, I thought Trowa made that part up to hide his secret, but how do you explain Duo feeling Trowa's pain when he whipped him, right? Anyhow, I don't want to rant on and on and bore you. I hope you update soon and fast! I can't wait for the next chapter.

Enjoying this story every bit as much as i did your last one! Oh, and I see absolutely NOTHING wrong with a threesome (bum chika wa wa...that was my attempt at prOn music) if that is where you are heading...don't want to see either Heero or Trowa have to give up the Duo lovin' Thanks so much for the quick updates and am looking forward to the next chapter!
| ToonyTwilight chapter 9 . 9/27/2011
Very well written, I can't wait to see what Heero will do next chapter.
| fan-to-fiction chapter 9 . 9/27/2011
Good story, but please tell me it isn't a threesome between Trowa, Duo and Heero?
And if Trowa's Duos soul mate how will he end up with Quatre (if that's the plan). And how will Heero and Duo be completely together. I mean, it must suck for Duo to know that Heero is not his soulmate but something he hates a lot.

Lol, I'm looking forward to Heero's solution. XD
You really do an excellent job of reeling readers in and getting them absorbed in what you wave in front of our noses. I'd call it bait, laid out as a lure for us to read the next chapter. ;D
Not that I'm in any way objecting, lol. I love it.
I'm just really friggin' impatient to read more. XD
You had one extra space when Trowa told them his true name, and I think one extra apostrophe somewhere, but now I don't remember where it was... *growl* Annoying...
Anyhow, I loved this chapter as well, obviously, lol, and I can't wait to find out how the guys deal with all of this. XD
Wonder if Heero could lend out his null-ness somehow? Like to Duo or Trowa when Deathscythe has to be used, or if Quatre gets overwhelmed by emotions. That'd be interesting, and since he was an experiment it's something to think about, ne?
I'm waiting (im)patiently for the next chapter! ;D
May the words just flow,

Uh, ok. I'm not sure what I think about this story anymore. I was sooo excited (extremely excited!) about this wonderful fic and now I'm weary. I'm not saying you should change your ideas but this makes me think of all the reasons why I stopped reading Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita series. A threesome to come? Really? Especially with all the tension of "alpha" personalities and williness to kill/use in the beginning? Why even stop with only heero and trowa now? Maybe Duo will end of with his own herem at the end of this too, but not by choice of course. He can't choose but that doesn't matter because he can have both! I hope you realize I'm being dramatic but I'm sure you get the point...
Haha, maybe I'm being a little harsh and extreme and I know this is a completely different world, but I expected more than this and am disappointed. I've really enjoyed this fic and have been on the edge for the next update since the posting of the first chapter! Now I'm not feeling excited and can wait... Definitely not the same. Anyway, best of luck to you and thanks for the quick updates.

I love how you're staying true to urban fantasy conventions even while staying true to GW characterizations in this. Urban fantasy leads always have a raft-load of love interests, even when it's obvious that there's a OTP. Delicious indeed!
