Reviews for Honor Among Thieves: The Unwilling Nightingale
Advent of Shadows chapter 17 . 3/14
Any time the protagonist is capture by the thalmor, I immediately lose interest.

I was going to wait to ask this until I finished the story, but I just can't wait that long to ask x)
I love writing, fiction and fanfiction alike. I dabble with some stories here and there, but I can never seem to finish any of them. Then I go and get an idea for a Skyrim fanfic. I think it's got great potential. I even wrote out this HUGE character sheet (literally like 10 pages long per character) for the main characters, so now I practically know the characters better than I know myself, but I'm still struggling on actually writing the story.
So, I'm wondering, how did you start writing this story? It's so long, with so many different plots that it's more like a series than a book. According to writers digest, a fantasy novel should typically run about 100,000-115,000 words. Yet, here you are, with a story nearly 300,000 words long, and you wrote it in 7 months! Well, I guess you could have written a good portion of it prior to your initial posting of the story, but according to fanfiction it took you a total of just under 7 months to finish it. I am amazed. Utterly amazed. Especially with such a well thought out story.
How? How did you do it? How did you start it? Did you start writing with a small idea and just build from there as you wrote? I find that can create some plot holes, at least in my case :P Or did you have the whole thing sorted out before you started writing?
My problem with having the whole thing sorted out before I start writing is I get disinterested. I'll think of something else I want to write or I'll procrastinate by reading other things. If I do become interested, and create this awesome scene in my head, I'm usually not able to write it all down. I jot down the bulk of it, then act out the entire scene in my head. But, problem is, by the time I am able to write, I'm disinterested, because I acted the whole thing out in my head -.- It's a vicious cycle that, frankly, I'm getting tired of.
I guess I'd just like some advice :)

Yeaaaaaahhh... so this isn't going to be good.
I think I'll just take a few steps back before continuing.

I did not expect the second head comment xD
Everything Under the Sun chapter 82 . 2/28
I rather enjoyed this chapter. I'm quite fond of Khajiit (a khajiit I called J'ajma was my first playthrough of Skyrim .) and bosmer alike. I liked seeing Ja'Rak and Little Faldil.

OHMAGOSH. Favorite part of this ENTIRE story!:
"I saw Sheogorath lean over to Vilkas and ask, 'What are they talking about?' And vilkas reply, 'I haven't the faintest idea.'"
I just
It's so
I can't even explain how much I loved that.

:D I am so excited to see Sheogorath. Hands down, favorite Daedric Prince.

Haha I cannot tell you how many times I've used "we're all mad here" xD

"Mila's friend Babette."
"Mila's friend Babette."
"Mila's friend Babette."
YUP. I read that right. *panics*
Everything Under the Sun chapter 76 . 2/27
Hmm... so maybe the memories brought on by the talons aren't triggered by Mercer's blood? Interesting little plot twist there :) I'm kind of glad Mercer hasn't quite left the story yet. You made his sad story very intriguing and... well, human x)

Poor Rune :(
I'm soooo happy Hadvar was even mentioned! :D He's always been one of my favorite npcs.
Everything Under the Sun chapter 72 . 2/26
Yup. I trust Ondolemar. I sincerely hope that trust is not broken *tries to hide panic*
Everything Under the Sun chapter 70 . 2/26
I've been itching for some daedra lore :D This chapter helped me understand it a lot better.
Everything Under the Sun chapter 69 . 2/26
I liked this chapter :)
And I'm still betting that Ondolemar is going to prove himself trustworthy. Though I must admit, I forgot he was in the guild until you brought him up again xD
Everything Under the Sun chapter 68 . 2/26
YUP. More conflicts with Ulfric -.-
Strange how some fanfics can portray him in such a way that you start to like him, while others make you want to travel to Skyrim and lop off the man's head yourself.
