Yes indeed, dear Alice, if only you had ripped off Jame's head when you had the chance! This was such a different telling of Alice's life, and I really liked it. Yaroslav was a dark angel, for sure as he saved Alice from the horrors of the asylum. How appropriate, too that her first meal as a newborn was that witch of a matron! Karma's a bitch, huh? One big reason I liked your story so much is the fact that Alice had someone before she found Jasper, someone who loved and cared for her. It's always hurt my heart that she was so alone all those years, until he walked into the diner. So, good job!

This is a beautiful story of love. I loved how you had the Dr. avaenge the wrongs committed on MAry Alice and she helped him. I loved that she had a sire and mentor in this version and that James had just been lucky to have taken Yaro by surprise. I think it is interesting that she wants to hide the past, her past from her mate but will share it with her brother, the mind reader.

Um, I might have a bit of a crush on Dr. Yaroslav. There, I said it. Whew! Feels good to get that out. :-)
Such a bittersweet story! I love your take on how Alice was changed and I'm so pleased you decided to make it with someone who truly cared for her. And of course, loved the Russian, I'm a sucker for foreign languages... ;-)

LJ! This was wonderful. I had never imagined anything like this for Alice's past, but after reading it... I can see it. I can see it all so clearly. You paint such a vivid picture with your words and it's always fun to be pulled into your stories.

This was another one that I absolutely loved. It wasn't a cheesy "You've kept me waiting" Alice story. It was dark and gritty, like you'd imagine her past in an Institute would be. You developed the relationship with her sire so well that I actually wanted them to stay together. Yeah, I may or may not have completely forgotten about Jasper, haha. You developed Alice very nicely though. From the girl in the Institute to the young vampire, striving to make Carlisle proud, even though she's never even met him. You did a great job using her visions as a way to guide her, as well as explaining the rift between herself and Yaroslav. Loved it. :)

My favorite part of this story is still the way Yaro cares for and protects her in the beginning. And I also still hold firm that Edward would totally keep her secrets!
It was so sad to see Yaro go, even though I knew it would be that way. As always LJ, this is a fantastic story! I think I've mentioned how I kept a list and notes while reading the entries? :)
Next to yours I had put - "The doctor- Awesome! Very well written. LJ?" lol
Thanks for another fantastic story!

Amazing as always!

I absolutely loved this glimpse into Alice's life pre-Jasper. It has to be one of the most interesting stories that SM never told in canon, and you more than did it justice. I actually felt my heart sinking as Yaro realized that they were growing apart. Very well done, babe!
| EMHW.Bear chapter 1 . 9/17/2011
This is so so good. Just as I would imagine it. I was sorry about Yaro but I know it had to be. I loved the way he saved that evil woman for Alice, her revenge was sweet! I felt sad at the end though I know there is much happiness coming for her. Fits in with the saga awesomly. D
| KayMarieXW chapter 1 . 9/17/2011
Such a harrowing end to her human life and also early vampire life for Alice. She has been through so much and it's sad that she has to carry so much guilt with her.
I hated James for the callous way he killed Yaroslav, although I know it's completely in character for him. I'm so glad Alice will get her revenge eventually.
Excellent story, thanks for writing.

Ahh LJ this is so you. Bittersweet, and yet you make a non canon pairing sympathetic and you make me feel for Yaroslav. Good job. And yes she should've dispatched James but then where would we be at the end of the first book?
