| AmberJF chapter 104 . 1/20
I think Ammaviel's review had the right of it: Thank you for this wonderful journey. You (both) have created something beautiful with this entire story. The lessons and growth of each character was fantastically written. The details, jokes, and beautiful touching moments. The drama, suprise, twists, suspence. I LOVED this. With a PASSION. You had me squealing and laughing over even their small jokes, giddy for even the romance between Hawke and Sebastian which at the beginning i could have cared less about, and now i adore Amelle/Bethany to no end. I also love how you weaved Cullen into the story. Your original chars, Tasia esspecially i adore. And Hawke being an archer? I have never considered it but dang. Arishok vs mage was a scary run and attack. But ARCHER? Oh God the horrors. SO many amazing things in this story i could be typing all day. Terrific job. 3

You are both cruel, evil, disgusting, hatefully wonderful, beautifully artistic writers. I am so joyously giddy i want to blow up something. I think you broke me. My emotional rollercoaster has crashed and is now stuck doing loops with this wonderful chapter. I think i have the worst and best of this chapter's images permanently etched into my mind. And i was reading WORDS. Oh, Maker you KNOW i'm completely sunk into this story. And BTW. One of my cotworkers mentioned something about "not having enough time" and i nearly doubled over in laughter. "If only we had more time." Maybe we have to make time...Yup, You have crawled into my mind and corrupted it with amazingness...

I knew she'd run into someone else! but...but i thought it would be another wounded or a child even.. in both cases I would have thought bleep you all and keep going. Amelle might be that kind hearted but i sure as the Void am NOT. but then...it wasn't just some peasant was it?...even i couldn't have just...I still like Fenris so much more but...TO THE VOID WITH IT ALL! Major combo healing blasts. COME ON! *totally pumped* You are stronger than before Amelle! Wheres Cullen? Holy Combo! Holy Combo!

And here is a review that perfectly described my deep innermost thoughts about this chapter:
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Save her! Save her! Save her! Save her! Save her! Save her!

I love how we progress through everyone's point of view here, even though flash backs drive me a little bit insane. How the heck have you managed juggling different perspectives, different storylines for each sister - to come together again, AND flash backs of the past? I am intrigued. -

By the Dread Wolf! These chapters get better and better! Or is it more horrible in this case? Yes, probably. I am in shock at how the story progresses so smoothly yet every minute i read it i still feel giddy excitement for each scene. Their is so much going on. I may defidently have to read this story again to see how the water ties back with previous chapters. It suddenly makes me feel bad for that sailor I didn't think i could feel bad for. I love how Amelle rises in her sister's absence to be just as another Hawke. I feel incredibly horrible for Leto's...trials? I wonder how this will affect things between them.
It is SO wierd switching from the broken rules, and death ridden underground clinic in the slums of a broken city right over to the fancy politically twisted, rich, high powered world of royalty trying to regain control of an unstable land. Similar problems from such different stand points they seem entirely opposite, yet they are the same. Its just SOOO strange for this to all be one story. Amazing writers would be jealous of this beyond-amazing story. :)

I LOVE her time in the fade. Compassion teaching her mini lessons and i ADORE Cullen's and Fenris' fade representations. The purple eyed fade represenative made me want to kill him. That would never be tempting cause its in no way him. :( i LOVE this story. One second you have me squealing over Fenris' and Amelle's story then cursing you the heck out for switching to Sebastian and Hawke's. A few minutes later you have me doing the complete opposite and nearly hating Fenris and Amelle. THAT is talent considering how much i adore Fenris. *applause*

This chapter adorably made me cry. X3 that was so sweet and probably the best, yet simple, story I heard of their ending job with Athenril. :)

Ser Pounce a Lot? Ah, i love cats. I suddenly have a new love for this one. Lol this entire fade thing is pure awesomeness. So many twists and turns and dream-like feel. The entire idea is pure genius. LOVE IT.

Love the line "at least its a start...and that, is better than an end anyday." Ahh chaos.

DANG! I never thought about if Sebastian might have gotten hurt on his way to leaving kirkwall, but i suppose it IS a battle ground. I like the idea of these Hawke sisters. People have many different kinds of Hawkes, but its nice to see a different kind of Bethany ALSO take the spotlight. And with Fenris-YAY! This will be the first story i read with Hawke liking Sebastian though. I look forward to that, especially since she DID let Anders live. But EXACTLY. If you kill him he just becomes a martyr, a hero in someone else's story and someone to rally the mages and make them fight for their cause stronger. I like how you presented Hawke's thoughts about Anders and his actions, how he is no longer even the same man.

That was amazing. Beautiful, just beautiful. Thank you for this wonderful journey.

Best Dragon Age 2 fan fiction Ive ever read, by far, combined my two favourite pairings, and kept me thoroughly entertained by the adventures they had. I havent found a fiction yet besides that portrays Fenris so magnificently. Absolute 10/10 from me.

A very packed full story with an interesting idea of how things might be after DA2. The dialogue is well done. Not sure I can remember laughing out loud so much while reading a story. I really like how main characters' perspectives were shown separately, without the story needing to be repeated to show a particular scene. I also liked the addition of Cullen to the story and the development of a close friendship with Amelle, and gradual inclusion of him into their group. And I think it was a good idea to have each of the Hawke siblings as main characters in their own right, it really adds to the story. So, overall, thank-you for a many hours of time well spent reading.
