I swear, if something develops between Kael and Ilia while Link is MIA, I'm going to be very angry. Maybe a little betrayed, as well. It would make sense for a hurt person to seek comfort, but that doesn't make it feel any more right when we all know that Link is coming back.

I finally found time to read and review. I'm really glad to see it updated again and I'm happy that my previous review made you happy. Damn, so much happiness here, haha.
I really loved the way Ilia developed with her job. Being a nurse can already be really hard for your mental health but in a time of war it is pure battle. To see death and the process of dying is something every single person in the world fears. It shocks you but if you see it over and over again it becomes tiring. A part of daily life which it shouldn't be and how Iila's reaction changed from the previous chapters concerning her patients showed that. Sorry for the rant, I just really, really liked that.
And let's not forget Link. His pain had been portrayed really well already and in this chapter his inner conflict surfaced because he was struggling with the good and bad. His hopes, fears and reality. I liked that, even more because Johnny was there to support him - without really knowing it. Their friendship is wonderful, subtle, a bit goofy but just right in the end. I'm all for their bromance.
The suspence was killing me as they got attacked on their return. I always struggle myself with action szenes so a big compliment for you, it was written well, I couldn't wait to reach the next sentence to know what happens next.
Even though of all that, I've got to tell you - you're horrible. Link disappearing, missing in action. Jonny believing he could be dead while he is happy to see his loved one again. And Ilia sitting there all alone while at the same time she wasn't special because there were probably so many other girls and women suffering the same loss she did.
You're crushing my feelings here. And you're doing a great job with that. Haha, no really it's just as good as the last chapter. I'm excited to see what really happened to Link in all that chaos, if he made it [he better did] and how Iila copes with the fact that she believes he is dead. I do hope there won't be some desperate seek for comfort with Kael, let Iila be strong. Or let her cling to Telma, I love her to pieces.
...Or maybe I just don't really like Kael as much, haha. He is a well-made OC but of course for me he's nothing but a threat for the pairing I like. I just like the absence of predictal drama, I think. It can be written well - you can pull it off for sure anyway.
Whatever- great chapter. Evil cliffhanger. Keep at it, I'm looking forward to the next chapter. Sorry for the novel here, haha.

I haven't been in the Zelda fandom for a long long time, but I still remember this story vividly. You write Link and Ilia so beautifully... I hope this will be finished one day, because I can honestly say it's the best Zelda fanfic I've ever read.

I honestly don't know what to say. Really, you're an evil author for leaving it here for us to chomp at the bit to find out what next.

I hope your computer gets fixed :x I really love this story.
| CupcakePride101 chapter 2 . 1/21
I love this chapter, especially the ending (even tho it was sad). It would be cute if Link was able to save someone there. But this chapter is really good :)

I found your story and must really say, I love it. The way you write is entertaining, the flow is great while the inner thoughts are easy to understand. I really like it if the reader can follow the decisions and actions of the characters without getting the whole 'wait, what' moment, haha.
And I love Ilia anyway, she is a character who gets so much hate for no reasons because she just invades the popular ship. At least the reasons I personally heard where questionable because they pretty much identify Zelda in nearly every other game as well. Anyway.
Love the pairing and idea. The way Link still suffers after all he went through on his adventure. The loss of Midna who we all had come to love as a very fun and strong companion. And how you point out that Ilia didn't have it easy either, I mean she got kidnapped and shot at and who knew what she went through as well. Kudos for that.
I could go on and on about the details. The war. The realism. And Johnny, haha, he's fun. The pace is awesome not too fast or slow. The way you portray the war which are never just a few battles, but more waiting and waiting for a good chance. Not to mention the weather which alone can already decide quite a few fights.
I really love this story and hope you take your time to finish it. I read about your laptop disaster and man, that really sounds annoying. Good luck, I'm definitely waiting patiently for the next chapter.

Welp. That sucks. :( I really like your story. It takes me a while to find a Twilight Princess story that I really enjoy, so consider yourself awesome! :D I hope everything works out great soon, and good luck at school! :)

As time goes on in war, there are only two ways to go from a mental standpoint; go higher and become very religious, or down, deep into the darkness of despair and self-hatred.

I don't know whether to smile or cry. The last bit was really just too sweet. I feel so badly for all involved- Link, and Ilia, and especially Kael- I hope there's a happy ending for them. Keep it up!

This chapter was anticipated for a long time by me, and I was definitely not disappointed. Although this story is maybe not the most active, I love how sweet and emotional it is. I'm excited to see where you next take this, and for the next update!

I think this sets the tone of what I'm thinking right now...
"... Give sentence with me, O God, and defend my cause against an unholy people: Deliver me from the deceitful and wicked man, for Thou, O God, art my strength; why hast Thou forsaken me? And why do I go about in sadness while the enemy harasses me? ..." I think that sums up the feeling of this chapter.

I just gotta say, that even though i've only read the first chapter of this so far, its beautiful! So few people write Link/Ilia stories and that's a shame because they make such a lovely couple. In fact, I've been planning to write a romance story between the two of them in the near future and this will definitely help inspire me! :D

This is so fantastic :D

Man I love this story. You are a truly great writer.
You're stories seem so real, I like how you make Link seem heroic but still realistic. I've noticed in other stories about Link, they make him like this super hero that prevails in everything and never fails, never gets tired, never feels bad, kind of inhuman... And know I'm rambling, anyway, I love this story.
