|Reviews for The Telling Tale|
| Tsuris chapter 29 . 2/20
So here I am, 29th Chapter in and writing my first review for this story.
Where do I begin? Do I begin with extolling your grasp of language? How you manage to spin a couple of words into a masterpiece?
Or I do praise your ways of binding the reader's attention? How you ever so slightly can steer a reader's thoughts and retain their interest?
Or perhaps, it was the way you made us think in one direction, and with a jerk like a master puppeteer, twisted every notion we had of the plot and its character?
Maybe it was them to others.
But I would like to believe that every story could have been real, in a sense. Much like a parallel universe as it were, and your story is so "Human". People can relate! All your characters have flaws, and those flaws are what made them so very real.
So at the apex of my review, lest I lose your attention, I would like thank you for having written this story.
So Cheers, friend, and I hope to see your future works soon.

Just a quick note before I continue. This is an extraordinary story, and this chapter in particular was quite delicious. There is the occasional spelling mistake, but in all honesty, the story is so engaging that I barely notice them. Considering that I am a bit of a grammar/spelling nazi, that's saying something.
You should probably increase the story's rating to 'M' though. There is a fair amount of violence in the story to start with, but the real clincher is chapter 26. It is way beyond the 'T' rating. You avoid being graphic, but you are also plenty clear about what is happening. It did not offend me, as I have no problem reading an 'M' rated story in any case. However, the escalation in content maturity was actually enough to make me double-check the story rating.
Thank you for writing, and now on with the story. )

I really love this story...
And I wish I was better at writing so I could give it the awesome review it deserves, but I can't, cause I suck... So, bye.

looks like i spoke too soon with my previous statement.

interesting beginning. though i'm kind of disappointed you didn't take the opportunity to involve Cousland, even if he wasn't a grey warden. definite potential to have him become a major power within Fereldan as a Teryn. though that might conflict with you letting Loghain live.

Awesome story. Pretty much perfect, there isn't anything I would dislike. I always found it silly when they proclaimed at the end of the game that circle now has autonomy and everything is just peachy. Your story is exactly what I think could happen.
And it made me laugh so hard when I realized that your heroine is pretty much the same as my character. Except I named her Catelyn... but Kathryn makes more sense as an elf, I'll give you that.

I love your heroine.

I love this story. Pissed off Elf Mage Warden, stuff getting exploded, making Jowan an ally (which should have been doable), handing the Vanished Wankers/Templars to Avernus for his own evil doing, turning Thunder into a Warden, and making the Chantry look like a pack of arseholes. I adore this story. it is funny, it is gripping, and the part where Kathryn was abducted made me sad and cringe. Happy Conchoban got his little Templar melted, didn't think of that. Love the Archdemon shapeshift-ey thing, and overall love the story. Anyways,
tl;dr, Pimp story, love reading it, good to see Templars asploded and Chantry annoyed, can't wait for another chapter.

This is absolutely outstanding!

I'm glad to see that this story didn't die. Its quality was just as good as I remembered.
I really liked the funny parts, and also the nods to events from outside DA:O - I certainly hope to see more of them. Darrian remained an inpressive and scary antagonist, very intense, focused.
Thanks for writing, hope to see more in the future.
