I am in awe. This story is so beyond amazing, I feel completely inept in describing the depth of how fantastic it is. Your characterizations are impeccable (you even gave the side characters a distinct voice, which as you already admitted earlier is not an easy thing to do) and your writing style is so thoughtful and smart - I found myself forcibly reading slower to fully appreciate the craft you have with words instead of frantically reading to get to the next chapter as I was so enthralled with the story. This sounds like an exaggeration, but I literally was on the verge of tears when I reached the end -even with the promise of a sequel- in fear that the sequel never happened, perhaps in part due to how few reviews this story received (for which I am positively outraged!). I am so thrilled to see that the sequel does indeed exist! I will definitely go on to read it as well and (hopefully) give consistent reviews as the story progresses (for I see it is not finished) that it undoubtedly deserves. I'll stop this rambling review now with a simple thank you for sharing such a wonderful piece of work. I look forward to reading the next one!

This story is brilliantly done, and I love the intro quotes to each chapter. Jenn.

OH WOW! just discovered this story and i am just blown away by the awesomeness of your writing and the ability to write the characters so well...tho it seems like Raven became so much more insightful an mature within one chapter which was a bit weird...anyways cannot wait to read the sequel-the moment i press send review im going on to the sequel!

This. Was. Amazing. Enough said.
Besides that, the plot was very engaging, the characters were amazingly written, and the dynamic between them was wonderful to read about.
I'll be sure to read the next part.

Great fanfiction! I loved!
I just didn't understand this epilogue... I guess I'll have to read it again.

Oh wow oh wow, I have to say, this is the best xmen story I've ever read, one of the best written too. Such a good plot, and with all of the characters, and emotions so beautifully twisted in places. I can't think of many ways to describe it justly, but I truly loved reading this, and it isn't usually a type of story I go for, but your plot was so well done that I was hooked the whole way through - brilliant brilliant story and writing, and I really hope I do get to read the sequal, because this was superb. And your characterisation was flawless by the way! I maaay have to go re-watch the film now! Oh and that was some of the best bits of this, that you dealt with the in-film footage in a new way and weren't just repeating it, but it was detailed enough and different enough to be really engaging, and I really loved your take on the characters toughts :)

great chapter. [the one i've been waiting for] you did a fantastic job with it! thx for putting it up for download to.

Great chapter as usual! ) I'm very impressed by the way you don't forget, as I've seen in some other fics, the fact that even if Charles and Erik have a beautiful friendship, they still have different points of view on the all mutant thing. Sometimes authors try to resolve the whole thing a little easily and from what I've read you don't plan on doing so... Thank you! Can't wait for your next chapter )
| Haylia Jones chapter 1 . 11/2/2011
holy crap this is one of the best written, most enticing opening chapters ever. Omg, its just so good. your words are so well chosen and emotionally reverberating in the reader. i am in awe.

I've devoured all of this in one day! I I can't wait for more!
| Adrian Nox chapter 9 . 11/1/2011
great last couple of chapters, as always. i await the next couple with great interest. As to the surprise...the only thing that comes to mind is him wiping her memories, but i'd hardly consider that a "pleasant" one so that's prolly not it. lol. not the slightest clue at the moment.

God, I love this! :-) I like the way you take your time characterizing Charles and the others - it's the quiet before the storm and I'm looking forward to see where you will take this. Your writing is exceptional. I whish I was as talented as you are. Thanks for posting this story! :-)
