|Reviews for A Magnificent Depravity|
| Guest chapter 40 . 12/14/2022
I've probably reviewed this beautiful story at least half a dozen times.. but when you re-read it almost ten years after initially finishing it, it seems appropriate to review once more.
Thank you, Eglentyne, for setting out to truly encase sebaciel and create the fic to end them all, because you truly did just that. I hope for a love so grand to grace my life, but as Sebastian would say, I don't think I would know what I was asking for. I wish there was a way to publish this as an actual book so you could recieve all the praise and fame it deserves. I hope you continue to always use your writing in such a way that you share with all of us This fic pops up in my mind at least several times a year and there are lines so iconic that they will be whispered to me in regular life (i.e.: 'My methods are most deplorable.').

This is the second time I reread it. You writing style is beautiful. I go through an emotional roller coaster. Just wow , beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
I'm still reading Kuroshitsuji and it feels like it will conclude soon and idk why this story came to mind.

I think mayrin and ciel were both a little out of character in this fic.
Why didn't lizzy turn in to a shinigami after her suicide? Shinigami were people who committed suicide. And what will sebastian do without ciel he clearly fall in love with ciel!? It won't be a happy existence for sebastian after ciel death maybe his soul fed his hunger but how about after his death won't he be heart broken and how could he kill ciel in such a brutal way if he loved him?!
Why ? I cried a lot...alot

I reviewed this when I was probably 18-19, and now at the age of 23, after finishing reading it again, I have to write a new review. Eglentyne.. I don't know what I can say that hasn't been said. I honestly think you could get this published. I wouldn't want you to have to make it into a twilight/fifty shades deal where you changed the names, but god, I feel like this deserves so much more recognition than it will ever recieve. I want the world to know of this work. This is my most favorite fanfiction of all time, and if i'm being honest, I consider it my favorite book of all time. You are so insanely talented and gifted. I consider this to be the true ending of the Kuroshitsuji saga in my humble opinion. I wouldn't want it any other way. It's so true to form, and character, and I love the depravity and sinful nature of it. My heart weeps for all the characters in this, but for Ciel and Sebastian to come to such a perfect yet inevitable ending.. It fills me with such a strong feeling of bittersweetness. Please never, ever, ever, (not that you have intentions too), take this down, because i'm sure I will come back to it and read it over the years. I plan on eventually printing it out and binding it myself. Is that silly? I love it so much. I hope you know just how wonderful and brilliant of a writer you are, and that this fic is truly the most outstanding, shining, magnificent (ha-ha), spectacle. I don't know what it is in me that craves such a depraved love such as this, where it's honestly comparable to Romeo and Juliet in tragedy-esque form, but I hope I never cease craving it because then i'd never read this most beauteous masterpiece again. :)

I think this is the most I've disliked hetero smut. I applaud you, well done

I cried so hard

Good job!(critical)There was too much sex along with an undefined relationship with Joanne pertaining to Sebastian and Ciel which surely struck out to me as being the major flaw in this work as it progressed so fast and this interest they took in each other was an anamoly as the construction was built upon suddenly letters and shallow thoughts. Mey-rin was ascribed to being a wanton whore, although I’m not completely against this as is a possibility which was exaggerated as a replica of beast from book of circus but without the storyline of rejection to back it up.
Aside from the main cast as thots it was a hilarious read

I AM CRYING SO HARD RIGHT NOW OF MY GOD OH MY GOD I LOVE YOU SO MUCH GAHHH I CAN BARELY WRITE CUS MY EYES ARE SO FREAKING BLURRY.

I am writing this with tears streaming down my face as I engrave Sebastian’s final confession into my mind. I am beyond heartbroken yet I feel a profound sense of happiness for their last moments together. I cannot begin to tell you how thankful I am for this magnificent piece of work; this is no fanfiction, this is a magnum opus filled with such eclectic discussion of the human condition. You had me laughing and if I’m being honesty with myself, you had me crying with the most undignified wails. It remains a marvel to me that each character has retained all their features in the manga, and for that I thank you again. Your references of the Victorian era and small integrations of Greek mythology had me floored with it’s realism. As I am sitting in my chair typing this, I get the feeling of “what-should-I-do-now” after finishing a good television series. I do not know how any other fanfiction on this site will trump Magnificent Depravity. You have evoked so many emotions within me in your 39 chapters ending with the most marvelous of denouements. I cherished my time with Magnificent Depravity and I greatly look forward to you next masterpiece.
With all my heart,

I've just read this whole story over the last 2 days. I don't normally leave reviews but I decided I would for this. It's one of the best fanfictions I've ever read and is beautifully written. The story manages to sweep you up in it and take you on a journey. Although part of me wanted Ciel and Sebastian to have a happy ending I feel what you did was most realistic to the characters. The thing I noticed overall was how true and realistic the characters were which can be very rare for fanfiction. Thank you for putting in the time to write this eloquent literature and best of luck with all your future projects. Ros

Very much enjoying this story! Bonus points for mentioning Guerlain's Jicky! I myself have never had the sniffing pleasure but have a list of classics I would love to have a sample of one of these days and Jicky is on that list. I'm a bit of a perfume freak. ;0)
| Mary Borsellino chapter 40 . 6/15/2017
Thank you more than I can ever say for writing this story. It's incredible, and its use of language is above and beyond anything I've read in a long, long time. You should be so proud of it.
| Meulincat chapter 40 . 6/12/2017
Ok...I just want to say that I LOVED this story. It was written so beautifully. I got sucked in and had to read it all the way through. I hope to be able to find the other accompaniments you said might be coming in the authors note and hope to read more stories made by you in the future.

HOLY FUCKIN OH MY GOD
I cannot begin to express my LOVE for this.
This was EXACTLY what I was looking for omfg.
Sure, there are a few minor spelling mistakes, but does that even matter? There are spelling mistakes in the Percy Jackson books, but Rick Riordan's still famous.
I was not expecting this fic to be so good. I was a little weirded out at first (was not expecting the whole Sebby and Mey-Rin debacle) but this fic is just so different from the others. I love the way time was taken to slowly show the growing love and tension between the two, and it took Sebastian AGES to figure out his feelings. Everything here is just done so perfectly.
I have never seen a fic written so well in Sebastian's pov. It was cool to be inside his mind, to know what he was thinking the whole time. I love the change and honestly the transition from "I can't love" to "ah, well, actually" was done so well.
The ending hurt like a bitch but in the best way. I absolutely adore it. What a perfect ending I legit cannot-
Of course, who could deny loving all the dark and intimate moments, we're all sinners here. The characters were so perfect and honestly I did not see Lizzie killing herself at ALL. The whole arc just took me by surprise and I love that.
Gosh I just love this so much thank you for writing this like this was soooo much better to read than my math questions (though I should probably get those done)
Please keep up the good work, you have a natural talent!
(btw thanks for adding in another trans character, it's just so cool to see this type of stuff and I love it so much okay I'm done now sorry-)

I could barely read this chapter and actually skipped some bits. I really don't like the whole Ciel/Joanne thing and I doubt Ciel would ever be so wanton, shameless and provocative. I might continue reading, though.
