A shame that this is abandoned. It was one of the few quality Catherine fanfics out there.

Awesome story, I really love how you describe the characters and their reactions (Vincent is a little OoC, but Iike it). I look forward to the next chapter :)

So I finally got around to playing Catherine; beat it and was like, I wonder if there's any fanfic - and then I found this! Your fic is beautiful! (I know this is suppose to be a ch.1 review but I went through all the chapters, so it's all of them). It kills me a bit that Vincent still doesn't stand up to Catherine at all (I understand that attraction to K/Catherine but I might have only wanted to yell at Katherine, but I wanted to slap Catherine). But anyways, this is really great, I love the fic, and its been a year since you updated, so no real hope for continuation, but I wanted to comment about how good it was (though did Vincent take Katherine's clothes? still don't know what happened to them...)
But anyways, though not complete, this was a really good fanfiction!

interesting, keep it up

I reviewed this once, but I'm doing it again because I love this so. much. And because I really appreciated your feedback on "Waltz with the Devil" when it was up (and I might post it back up again, because I believe it was the only review on it, and an encouraging one.) Now, a token of gratitude.
The characterization not only of the humans, but of the Babylonian divinities in the game, is just perfect. Nergal, Astaroth (and his harsh tongue), Ishtar, demon!Vincent, and everyone's favorite lilitu, Catherine. And you included a lot of characters without putting more emphasis on one over any other, which is splendid.
For a game which, in itself, is a supremely occult work, you absolutely nailed the atmosphere. The essence of Catherine is very present here.
Lastly, there's a sensuality in this fic that is very palpable without getting into terribly explicit detail, and that takes quite a lot to master.
Well, again, I really love this and think it's a fine work. I'm looking forward to what comes next.

Can I just say I love you for writing this story. I'm a avid VincentXKatherine shipper as well but when I read this I have come to appreciate VincentXCatherine a little more...I don't know but I really enjoyed this story. All the characters are spot on and I could visually picture everything that happend. Loved the ending btw, please write more!

Your fanfic is the reason I found my old pw from when I was in middle school. I just finished the true cheater ending & your predictions of how it goes after is so yes. just yes lol
It's got me on the edge of my seat, your story is just chock full of potential.

Great job giving Katherine a freaking heart attack, Vince. xD
I very much liked this chapter. The characters really seemed to pop to life here. I sure wasn't expecting to see Trisha or the twins show up! I wonder who her "guest" is...
It was a small section, but I also adored the scene with Erica and Toby. It (and the rest of this chapter, for that matter) felt very natural. But DUN-DUN-DUUUUUUN, the "plague" is starting again, even though Vincent said to cut it out! Who's making trouble this time?
There were a few little spelling errors I noticed in this chapter. "Her breathe" should be "Her breath," and "wrapping her knuckles" should be "rapping her knuckles," just to name a couple. But, hey, I'm picky like that. I also noticed that you used "next" in quite a few of your dialog tags.
Other than that, great chapter, as usual. I'm very curious to see what sheer insanity unfolds next!

An interesting quote by Dumuzid this chapter...at least pilfering is better then misappropriating - if nothing else, it does feel like their is some truth to his (or rather, Henry Ellis') words...to know what you really need, and hold onto it, and let go of everything else...it's an important distinction and realization we all have to make at some point.
At any rate, I explained everything to you in our PMs already; reply from this review so we can start all over again :).

I read some of your updates in your profile and it really got me thinking. The part that Vincent( or Hell, the /game/) is kinda like the Lovers Arcana. Granted, I read about the Catherine wiki...
At first, I thought that this game was just about growing up and mature but there's more than that. This game is about meeting a crossroad of a relationship and the decision to either continue that relationship or do something entirely different. About at least, that's how i see it.
And I feel a little silly, 'cause I usually compare characters to all Arcanae to see what Arcana they fit the most.
Katherine- Empress Arcana ('nuff said)
Toby- Star Arcana (He's practically Teddie from "Persona 4", hopeful and positive ;-))
What was I suppose to do again...? Oh! Right, a review!
Katherine's reaction is realistic and in character. I'd freak out to if my ex is currently a lord of the Netherworld... And aah! Near Tentecal rape!But don't worry! Vincent saves the day!
Heh, the rolls are reversed it seems. Before, Vincent was hiding Catherine from Katherine and now, it's the other way around.
The Twins are here and something /huge/ is even bigger than I love their I'm really curious about their mysterious origins, was a little disappointed when the game kept us in the game about that.
Erica and Toby have such an awkward relationship right now. We never saw what happened to the side characters in the Chaos ending. We saw some in the Law ending but not the conclusion of Erica and Toby.
Which reminds me: Did Orlando ever got back together with his ex? Meh, probably not...
Y'know, I always that you'd make Vincent Lawful, but I'd never once thought that you'd maybe make Katherine go over to the Chaotic side. Wouldn't /that/ be interesting?
Well, you're probably tired of me rambling so I end it here.
As always, looking forward to the next update!
PS. I'm "Fanfic Reader" but with an "Anon" in front. ;-)

Oh, I love the way you write. I can't help it, I get excited each chapter.
For this one, I really like how well you flesh out your original character, Paul. He's realistic, as if he was in the game, and he's actually likable. I wonder where you will take him?
You keep Vincent well in character, even in sides that we haven't seen him in game. His demonic self comes out, but he stutters and is uncertain sometimes, like his old self. Which is realistic, consider how Katherine reacts to him, he probably goes back to his old self when confronted by her anger.
I started a piece of work for this, the bathroom scene. I have to redo it though, cause I reread today and it's very off from your descriptions.

This story is really really amazing. You were able to make everyone act in character and this is very well written. I am obsessed with this fanfic and i really cant wait until the next chapter. :D i am not very good at making reviews but just know that this story is amazing and awesome!
