| IWasAFairyPrincessOnceToo chapter 19 . 9/25
This story was wonderful and thank you so very very much for including the way you intended it to end. You have no idea how much that means to the readers. I'm a little disappointed that Vincent didn't seem like he was going to make an appearance but I doubt it would've done much to move the story along. I'm also pretty glad you considered Elfe as Cloud's love interest of Tifa wasn't going to be in. Never really thought the relationship was very well developed. Beyond that, you gave Aerith a purpose other than to be stuffed in a fridge, you made Zack's affection for her a bit more genuine and endearing, you better developed Sephiroth, Angeal, and Genesis, and you made Cloud both likeable and kickass. This, in my opinion, was way better than the game was storywise as you still made it point to have realistic characteristics and their affect on the people in that world like Aerith's arrogance holding her back. You gave Aerith a story similar to, but still unique from Sephiroth's and Cloud's in game. I love the fact that the ending you wanted was still somewhat canon to the original story with her ultimately becoming one with the Lifestream to save the planet. This was great, thank you.

What an interesting and well written story. I hope you keep it going. :)

Seriously, nice AU on Final Fantasy VII. How Aerith become a soldier, her interection with other, and how you change her character a bit, its really refreshing. I like how you portrayed Cloud in this Fanfic, wise and all, hope he get a bigger role with story. Will wait for the update, what ever happen I appreciate your time and energy to write this fanfic. Goodluck.

Now that's a beginning! Tension and suspense throughout, and a promising diversion from canon. Consider me hooked.
| Guest chapter 3 . 5/17/2014
Isn't this a bit violent and bloody for such a low age rating? Perhaps you should consider rating it T? It would be a shame if such an interesting tale were pulled.

I like it a lot. This is an AU that might indeed have happened if Aerith had not been able to escape Shinra. As I read the whole fic in one session, there are some things that I happened upon that intrigue me. I hope you don't mind if I muse a little bit on them here.
One example is that Angeal mentioned that Sephiroth and Aerith have a certain similarity to each other which led to him thinking they may be siblings when he first saw her. Yes, this might be worded as a casual observation which might not have a deeper meaning, but still, I wonder. As you seemingly try to keep as close to canon as can be in your AU (you're doing a great job with this, by the way), I doubt they really are siblings. But perhaps cousins or something similar? Wouldn't that be a riot...
And another thing is Genesis. That guy seems to be quite relaxed (and dare I say happy) for a prisoner. I somehow have the feeling that Genesis already accepted his role as the prisoner in his reenacting of LOVELESS. Does that mean he is already cured of his degradation or that he will not degrade at all? And that he recited the first act of the poem to Sephiroth when the latter visited him... Does this mean that Sephiroth will be the wanderer this time around?
Questions, questions and more questions. Well, I will just have to wait and see what the answers to my questions are.
However, I also want to leave a teeeeeeny bit of critic behind. Don't take this the wrong way, please. It's just that you sometimes seem to forget a word or use one that is not quite fitting in my opinion. At the end of chapter 21 for example, you wrote "Smiling, Aerith headed over into the group of refugees to speak to some of them about AVALANCHE." In my opinion you should have used "to", not "into". If I use "into", I use it e. g. when I go into a room or put my bag into a car. "Into" for me implies that I'm moving something or someone from outside of a closed space to the inside of it. For me " moving to the inner part of" "into". Therefore, your use of "into" in this context gives me the picture that Aerith somehow phases through one or more bodies belonging to the afore mentioned group just to stand directly in the middle of it. And I doubt that this is the picture you wanted to convey.
I don't want to flame you, I really don't. But I would suggest that you read your chapters over once or twice before you post them here. Overall, your grammar is completely fine. There are just some things one might overlook while writing. Reading it over again after your writing is finished might help you catch them.

I think its a great subtle move with Deneh/Diné switch! I've loved this fic since I laid eyes on and its one of the few I can re-read and not get tired of it.
| HazzaTL3 chapter 21 . 1/31/2014
This was a cool chapter, I was concerned over Deneh as she was put in an Alter.
And Nanaki is captured by Hojo..
| HazzaTL3 chapter 20 . 1/29/2014
Finally got chance to read this long chapter. Please reduce the length..
Good chapter, wonder if Cloud shall dual weild in thus?
| catxangel chapter 21 . 1/29/2014
Well, Aerith finally found out her mother's name...
| Riku Uzumaki chapter 21 . 1/29/2014
I can only imagine what Aerith will think and do once she finds out/remembers that Ifalna is her mother.
| Wraith's Heart chapter 21 . 1/29/2014
Another chapter, another review. So far, so very much good. Aerith gets to ask about the Cetra and learns(sorta)of Ifalna. Cloud seems oddly wise in this fic. Hmm, satisfying.
Ever patient, WraithHeart

I always figured the orb was some sort of chair with rounded sides and bottom so it looked like an orb when he was sitting in it. Maybe it's powered by a float materia and Bugenhagen had the chair designed to look like materia as a joke.
And your supposition about Dine is certainly as good as any I've heard. Better, even, when it comes to what her and Nanaki's people were called.
| Wraith's Heart chapter 20 . 12/17/2013
So it has begun.
| Irish-Brigid chapter 20 . 12/17/2013
Cloud's special. _ He's going to be very strong, no doubt.
I'm looking forward to Aerith's visit to Cosmo Canyon. It's going to be quite the trip, in several senses of the word.
