Reviews for Luck Be a Lady Tonight
Just a stranger chapter 1 . 6/28/2013
This is beautiful. But all of your fics are beautiful in my opinion. Honestly, this story doesn't deserve eleven reviews, it deserves eleven thousand.

"Can we kill birds with it?" I have no idea why, but that question had me laughing for the next few minutes.

And this was an absolute gem: "you'll have the best damn beginner's luck that ever began to be lucky."

You never cease to amaze me, and I absolutely loved the interactions you portrayed in Artemis's and Jade's early childhood.

This is so amazing I just, I don't even. It's nice to see the softer side of Sportsmaster, and what makes it even better if that his soft side isn't even soft, it's just more human than the person he usually is. You portrayed the characters so well, Artemis, Jade, and especially Sportsmaster. And there are so many jewels of lines here:

"Yep. And knowing you," he had smiled, setting her down and leaving, "you'll have the best damn beginner's luck that ever began to be lucky."

Artemis, then, was foolish: "I love you, Dad."

He had froze, turning slowly toward her with intent imminent in his hard gaze. A finger was lifted, pointing toward her in cautionary emphaticness.

"That's your first mistake," he had chastised her. "But – you're a beginner. I'll let it slide.

/and/

"We're all beginners in the end, I think," Wally murmured, rolling over onto his back, spread-eagled and facing the stars.

You are amazing, you know that?

Yes! HTTYD reference!

And I could see Jade saying something like that, you know, except with Snoutlout I was like :'DDDD but with Jade I'm like unf Jade you fierce.

My favourite scene was the one with Wally on the rooftop - it was something out of a classy secret-agent show, only with superheroes. I really, really liked that little detail: "He called you Artemis." Says so much in so little.

Also: I'd actually been planning a similarly structured fic centered around Artemis growing up. Only less combat 'n' badassery and more struggles-of-growing-up-with-an-assasin-dad-and-no-mum-or-sister. I'm kinda sobbing in a corner because this fic is wonderful and mine is not but ok I'll just go fic now

With my face. Is that a How to Train Your Dragon reference I see? I'm 95% sure I've read this before, its on tumblr too right? Still one of my favorites.

"I want to be better!"..."Teach me how that was great

You can take all of 'em. All of 'em, if you're willing to take 'em all and never get tired, can't you? Fight 'em all and not break a sweat."

"I can." It was a promise. Her first,I'll take all of them on for you. Promise. If anything shows up, I'll gut it," Jade told her earnestly. Artemis smiled, snuggling down into the sheets. "With my bare hands. With my face."

"I'm not afraid," Artemis insisted softly, and she slept That was so awesome

No hurry I've got Dad awesome

This shows the love even if it is twisted, but Sportsmaster really believes you are the predator or the prey, the user or the used, the agressor or the victim and wants her strong to survive and thrive in the world and thus to some extent a decent human being

I really like your portrayal of Sportsmaster in this.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Artemis's and Sportsmaster's relationship. The way you presented it was very interesting and unique. I liked that you didn't show Sportsmaster as completely abusive. Their dynamic in this was very realistic, something I've always liked about your writing. I also liked the different flashbacks and memories, even Wally's little drabble. Both Artemis and Wally didn't start off as a perfect, and the way you showed their beginnings was great! I can't wait to read more of your writing :D

Did I just see a HTTYD reference? XD

It makes me kind of sad how she wanted to be like her dad so much at the beginning. Her interactions with Wally were perfect.
