I was laughing my ass off when you mentioned the Potage le Magnifique being a killer... I regretted killing him so badly... I felt bad about it for at least two days...

Oh...my...god. It's 7 in the morning and I've just sat for five hours, reading this straight through, because once I started I literally could not stop. This isn't a fandom I delve into often because I find most of the stories repetitive and kind of boring, but this...this grabbed my attention, and kept it. Brilliant characterisation-I absolutely adore Kajsa, and your Ulfric is stunningly perfect. The story is so amazing and you don't fall into the clichés that many other Skyrim fic writers do, and that's wonderfully refreshing. I don't often leaves reviews, but I just had to tell you that this isn't something I'm going to forget, and I will most assuredly be passing this along to my friends. Thank you for this, it's truly beautiful.

Just finished, and I must say, I quite enjoyed your story. I was a little leery at first, because the intro chapter read like a novelization of the plot and I was concerned that the rest of this story would follow that of the game, word for word. I was quite pleasantly surprised to find that this was not the case.
As for characters, you did a marvellous job of making them real people with real emotions and motivations. Dialogue always felt natural and unforced, which, as a writer, is something I greatly applaud and envy. Kajsa was a very entertaining character to read, and much more complex than I initially thought she'd be.
Overall I'm of the opinion that this was an excellent read, and I will happily number it among my favourites. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel, which I will start promptly!

Amazing. Just. Nothing else describes it!

Hi there! I'm loving this so far, but i will review majorly once I make my way to the final chapter up. I just wanted to review now to tell you before I forget that I just wondered whether the word 'stunning' seemed to fit properly. It just seemed a little bit out of place compared the excellent in character language that has incorporated in the story thus far. I felt like something more along the lines of 'Blue becomes you.' Or something like that would fit with the terminology you and the Skyrim world have already used :) thanks for reading this picky little thing and if you want to discuss this sort of thing with me then please just search for me under the name above. I have an account by the same name, but I'm just too lazy to log in :) okay, now I'm going back to the story and will review again at a later stage :) please don't take offense to anything I say, for I say it with the best of intentions.

Love your story! Your writing is excellent, your characters totally believable and your descriptions are fab :) I'm loving your Ulfric, I don't think he gets nearly enough attention in fanfic! I'm reading on my phone so it's taking me longer than it should but I'm rather addicted and I'm sure I'll have finished soon haha :D

... how old is she, how old is ulfric and what on earth is your timescale. yarl ulfric came to power after the great war, and after the white gold concordant, he was in the imperial legion when he took the reach, and he was imprisoned, only then did his father die and he took power, then he started the rebellion soon after due to grief and anger. so unless your character is 10 in this story, and her father died just before the war began than ulfric isn't the yarl at the time so there is some kind of disconnect here.

Loving this! I feel like now I'll never look at Ulfric the same :)

This ties everything up so very nicely. And happily, with the wedding. The use of Draconic is a nice personal touch between Kajsa and Ulfric. Not many people would be capable of that other than Dragon Priests, Draugr and Greybeards, and I can't imagine any of them using it quite like the new husband and wife did here.
I'm glad Kajsa managed to free herself of her responsibilities to Companions, thieves and assassins. She has quite enough on her plate as High Queen without leading three factions too. That the Night Mother released her surprised me, as I'd thought only death would release a Listener from service, and only then to serve in the Void. But then Kajsa's far from your average Listener, and if anyone could leave that role without dying, it'd be her. She's managed to wriggle out of the grasp of Daedric Princes, so why not the Night Mother's too.
I'm glad Elisif was caught. I hope she won't pay the ultimate price for treason, though. I wonder what else the Thalmor are plotting - I guess finding that out might well be part of Corruption of Blood. On the subject of that, I'm glad it's there, otherwise reaching the end of The Bear and the Wolf would be more bittersweet than it is. Because I can't get enough of your writing.
That the original ending wasn't as happy makes me glad that the actual ending is what it is. Although I am very curious about what the original end was.
| Child of Sithis chapter 59 . 9/28/2013
From what Galmar said about Elisif a couple of chapters ago, I was expecting her to be an obstacle. But I wasn't expecting her to pull a stunt like that. And to be so close to stealing the crown from Ulfric. If not for Dengeir...
That was tense. Elisif proved Ulfric wrong, she was a bigger threat than he thought. And she's proving him wrong again as her letter writing at the end shows that it's far from over. Argh. Damn it, Elisif. I still feel sorry for her, but not as sorry after this chapter and the plotting with the Thalmor revelation.

For a chapter that was just Kajsa and Ulfric talking, this was a rollercoaster ride. The high of a proper proposal accepted, and the low of hearing about Solstheim and what Miraak did. Or rather tried to do. He was so much worse than Alduin...
| Child of Sithis chapter 57 . 9/27/2013
Ouch, poor Kajsa. She definitely needed to hear that she's not alone any more. Hopefully that got through to her. I also hope that she'll feel less trapped and caged after talking to Ulfric.
That was a perfect and evil place to end the chapter. I'm lucky that this awesome fic is completed or I'd be suffering thanks to your evil cliffies. There's still Corruption of Blood for that, though...
| Child of Sithis chapter 56 . 9/26/2013
Ouch! That's a painful wait for Ulfric where he doesn't even know if Kajsa's alive.
The friendship between Karliah and Kajsa is something I like in this even more than the romance between Kajsa and Ulfric. And it's a friendship that Kajsa really needs, with this pregnancy petrifying her.
