Reviews for The Games of Moriarty
Vanguard of Kings chapter 26 . 1/11/2014
Cliffhanger! I hate those. But I love this story. How conflicting.
Emil C chapter 26 . 12/26/2013
Great story!
I really like your story as the first time I took upon it to start reading it! Thank you so much for almost two years of enjoying this excellent fanfic.
Very dark, though. Not complaining since its superb, but for a Lyoko fanfic I can only say: "Wow!"
May you keep feeding our minds and imagination!
I am grateful, really, thanks!
Have a great day! And Merry Christmas to you too!

Hey, let's have a deal. I give you 100th review and you give me a nice long chapter. Deal? C'mon how long are you going to keep us waiting? Some of us are dying here to know what happens next

I've been following this story for a couple months now, ever since I sort of re-discovered Code Lyoko. But your writing hits me outside of the wild universe set up in France; it seems that every chapter has its own moral message expressed through monologue and conversation. Last chapter, it was the sermon about unity of human spirit overcoming chaotic amorality. This is the line that stood out the most from this update:

"Yumi: In the movies, whenever a character only has a limited time to live, it always shows them living life to the fullest, doing the things they always wanted to do... And at the very end that person is always happier than they were before, because they finally appreciated life... But here I am, only days away from what could be our final fight, and I can't do anything. Nothing. I can only sit here and wait."

I constantly feel the same way about my own life in my inertia against getting things done before it's too late (I don't have to save the world, but you get the point). I feel as if my life is entering a new stage like a geological era or something. But then, I realize that the clock never stops when I sleep, if you understand that image. Life has gapless continuity, and the only way to set a new starting point is through action. In short: life goes on. Maybe something to include in a dialogue later on? :)

Anyway, your style is really developing. I'm happy to be the 100th review. Merry Christmas and the like.

It's getting better and better! And your Moriarty is just plain awesome. I can't help but imagine him as Moriarty from the new Sherlock series. I just can't wait for the next part! Seriously, update soon!
Etsu chapter 25 . 11/27/2013
First thing I must say is that your story is really great. You keep characters believable and you can really play with readers' emotions. Finding a story like yours is just amazing. I'd love to have if only a fraction of your talent. Your story gave me a lot of fun, so please, keep up the good work.
And the second thing I want is to encourage you to continue. Because, come on, the suspense is killing me! :)

First off, I would like to apologize for the lateness of this review. School's been giving me so much work that I haven't had the time to do much for myself, lately. Anyway...

First off, I like how in the midst of all this, you still manage to put in some small, heartwarming moments into the mix, from that small kiss Jeremie and Aelita share, to that Ulumi moment after church, to even when Bastien decided to stand up for Azra. ((: That with the action, suspense, and torment also present overall makes up another beautiful chapter that you've put out for us. This story is absolutely..flawless. It always leaves me wondering how you put this all together.

And the EMOTIONS. Oh my gosh, you manage to convey them really well. ((: You give all the characters depth to their own personalities; the characterization in this chapter is just great! I wanted to cry during a few parts, and I really could feel all the convoluted feelings every single character portrayed. Also, nice to see that Jim and Delmas are finally putting things back to order, haha. Made me smile, it really did. ((:

I can't wait to see the final confrontation. The way you're building things up to this "finale" is perfect. ((: The pieces are finally going to fall back into place. Of course, take your time. The delay of this update really didn't bother me, because this lengthy, well-written chapter absolutely makes up for it. And you're almost to 100 reviews! :D

I definitely don't want to wait long! I can't wait to see Moriarty's demise!
Guest chapter 25 . 10/12/2013
Please update soon. Please. Pleeeeeeeaaaaaaasssssseeeeeee!
Lywick chapter 25 . 10/14/2013
This story is amazing. I can't believe what a completely woven storyline you have created, with so many subplots, twists and turns that I can't believe it was all written by one person, and for no profit at that! I hope you make an original work one day, and if you do please tell us. I'm sure all your readers would love to know. Keep being awesome and I can't wait to see the next chapter. And don't worry about the breaks. Getting such a wonderful chapter after such a long wait is the same as having that special dinner you only have on christmas. It's beautiful and delicious and special, and most of all, worth it.

I wanna say in speechless but I have to type my mash up of extreme words first. I FELT ALL THE EMOTIONS YOU WROTE IT WAS SO TERRIFYINGLY BEAUTIFUL CAN I JUST CRY?! You've given them all demons to face, and I'm just like YISSSS. I like the bond steadily growing between Christophe and Jeremie. As well as the strong familyness that has become of their group. But then your just like BANG government BANG near death BANG Jeremie has emotions that I could feel, and did I almost cry at the end of this chappie? Yes i did. Thank you for that. I needed a good story. You've done a good job including every character and, based off of what little the show provides, you've given them personality. YOUR OCS ARE AWESOME. I can't even suppress how impressed I am with your OCS. They seem like they belong, they have flaws, and heroism, and personal demons, and they aren't perfect main characters... You must direct a movie/ write a book. I'd read/watch anything you published. Also... Don't you worry ab
Guest chapter 25 . 10/9/2013
Great job with the cafeteria fight scene
Emil C chapter 25 . 10/10/2013
Yes. It was the much anticipating ending I've been hoping for!
You've done pretty well, you have my thanks!
Sorry I haven't been posting any reviews lately. But I have been dutifully following your progress!
I really wished I had your time to write...

I have left my own stories unattended for such a while... As a matter in fact I was praising your story today to a friend of mine. Since it seems I cannot write things as dark and sober as you can. Even the darkest of parts in my story have to be diminished or followed by a sarcastic or comedic dialogue or a change in scene to an upbeat and cheerful environment. I am the worst...

Also is funny how many important subjects you added to your story. I mean, today I had ANOTHER argue with a friend of mine who insists that "god" wants people to kill people. He insists "He is the way" and he someday will be the "Emperor of the Americas". When I first met him I thought he was joking, he's not. He takes it quite seriously and he thinks that my idea of finding a "third option or self-sacrifice" to be plain stupid. He thinks guns are the option and tells me my pacifist ideals don't mesh with the real world and that "I WILL get my family killed..." because my logic is stupid. God forbids when I decided to contradict him with the basic of Judeo-Christian religion: "Thoust shall not murder"

He says murder and killing are different things, making the "murdering": Killing without a good reason.
I told him that then Cain had a "very valid reason" he did not commit murderer, he just wanted to get his parents attention. And following his logic killing is good. He winded up rubbing in my face how his whole family comes from military background or mercenaries. (BTW, he's proud of that background. Nothing against the army, just the mercenary part.) I decided to shut up, But he said that if he where to follow my point of view I had just damned all his family to Hell. I told him: "No, you have just damn your own family to Hell by accepting my point of view as true. Meaning, deep inside you know I'm right."
It didn't wind up well, but I won. Why? Because when one side of the battle loses its composure and starts attacking the person instead of the ideal or issue... Yeah... Low political blow. In my defense, he was mocking a real "War hero" for surviving. A man who built an association in South America to unify all religions in Ethiopia ran away from his country when the government attacked him and killed all his family and friends...
I won't disclose his name, but he was trying to finance his trip back to Ethiopia to restart his plans to bring the community in a pacifist way together as brothers and sisters.
He said his life was worthless, he was a coward who did not want to fight back and everyone that died that day deserved to die because they did not wanted to fight back against the aggression. I was deeply offended to say the least. He says people like me and him are the poison of this new generation, because we are gentle idealists whose deaths will be meaningless and much more...
I don't even know if I can keep being his friend. He is an ugly human being on the inside, he is not the nice guy I use to know. But, I guess he's always being like that: egotistical, rich, cheap, aggressive, offensive and manipulative.
I winded up also saying, that if the "god" who would condone blood with more blood is the "real god", I would rather be an atheist. ( I mean human killing another human. I DO remember Noa's Flood, okay?)
Anyways, while reading your story I understand Christopher's sacrifice. I do not condone it. But I understand it. My friend would not only condone it, he would celebrate it. Uhmmmm... Somehow Jeremie sounded at times like my friend... well, "friend"...
Didn't like it, but here's the difference: The Lyoko Warriors did NOT start the War. He wants to start one and slave or kill anyone who opposes him. I wonder if he's actually a psychopath...
Sorry, to ventilate through this whole situation, but is it a crime to say that I empathized so much with Aelita's hear and idealism...? I felt Moriarty/ Jeremie where my "friend" and I was... I don't know... Aelita with a little of Herb's insecurities...? you've made spectacular psychological characters my friend. They make me feel so many different things it's hard for me to even understand what I feel. I know what I read, but I just don't think anyone is right in this war... NOBODY IS RIGHT IN A WAR...
And the only possible person who is right, won't be listened... Just like Aelita...
We are few, very few the ones that want to fight for a better tomorrow with our naked souls and a strong heart... I don't think that man from Ethiopia is Earth's poison, I think he's the gentle breeze of a tomorrow that whispers wonders, hope and a brighter tomorrow...

I leave you my insightful friend with that little piece of information and hope to hear your opinion about the subject... I'll also leave you would this piece wrote by Martin Luther in his darkest moments:

"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree."

PS:
If you have time, please read my small piece on going piece of writing. It's called: "Moonlight Butler and Midnight Secretary." Might not be what you are expecting of a story, but trust me...
It is deep, sad, mysterious, and why not?! Even silly at moments...! Because with a gray and uncertain tomorrow isn't it better to try and paint it with different colors, at least in our heads?

Furantsu chapter 24 . 8/29/2013
Hello, I've been reading your fic since it started.
I rate it /10 stars. I love it, and looking forward to new chapters has gotten me through hard times.

I want to see some pictures of Moriarty; Christophe, Natalya, and Emmanuel's Lyoko forms, Odd's dark Lyoko form, Moriarty's monsters, and the eye of Moriarty. Oh, and the eye of Jeremie.

I want to be able to see them in my head better as I read.

Thanks very much!
