| Honey Nut Loop chapter 31 . 11/17/2007
This is a wonderful pieace of character exploration. Nature vs. Nurture. The distinction you manage between Reinyn and Gohan despite them being one- I have no words.
I read this once along time ago. And now i read it again it's still wonderful.

havnt read just a whole lot DBZ stories before but i have to say that this one is most definitely interesting and excellently written. I really like the interaction between the characters and the differences between Gohan and Reinyn, and the conflict that Reinyn's going through with chichi. Also cant wait to see what happens between him and vegeta that should be interesting when it eventually happens cause im sure vegeta cant leave it alone forever his ego will require a fight eventually
keep up the great work hope to see more soon

Whoa this story still rocks and I don't mind that it was a short chapter. I'm just really glad to see an update _. Hope you update soon!
| Regress35 chapter 30 . 10/25/2007
Interesting remark from Vegeta to Gohan, I'm still trying to figure out exactly what he meant by that :P. And yes, a few of us are still reading, the magical things called update lists come to the rescue! Good work, although I agree it's a bit short compared to some of you past work. Still, this story has more soul and depth to it than most of the fanfiction on this site :).
Great work, I can't wait for more.

Today is my birthday and getting this in my box this morning was like the very first present of the day.
I liked the confrontation with Vegeta. I knew they couldn't get along but I was a little surprised at the semi-truce/alliance and fond it an interesting plot twist.
I think you'd be surprised how many people have been waiting for this chapter.

| Countess Alecto chapter 27 . 8/11/2007
Hello? are you alive?
I do wish you would finish the story...please...or at least write the chapter with Vegeta investigating.
Vegeta grew up not as the prince in this universe...well sort of but he was a forced lackey.
I do so want to see his reaction
| Delusional Fishies chapter 29 . 7/29/2007
He needs to go back to his alternate universe and kill vegeta...
He can make the alternate universe with a wish with the dragonballs anyway.
| Countess Alecto chapter 29 . 7/11/2007
Tell me are you going to finish or at least update this story?
Its au who cares if you stray from canon?
| Ooshii Kurai chapter 29 . 4/10/2007
Ah. Lady El got me addicted to this story. I must say it's eloquently done and wonderfully executed. I had a hard time not coming back and reading on. It often had me thinking and pondering about several things. It's really a scary thing to think of what Gohan could have become on Planet Vegeta. He would have been very very dangerous. Hah. And if time had been willing to permit as it had- I'm pretty certain that Gohan would have come to earth and eliminated everyone. It's a good thing it didn't come to that though.
Amazing story. I enjoy it throughly. I hope you get to the end of the story too. Everyone is wonderfully in character- I find it absolutely refreshing. It's been too long since I've seen anything close to the magic that dragon ball z was once for me.
Thank you once more for the wonderful read.

This has been on my favorites list for ages, and it occurred to me as I was sorting through old links that I might not have reviewed it. It would be a crime to let a gem like this go uncomplimented.
This is one of those rare works that one can genuinely enjoy, time and again. You have such remarkable characterization, and the storyline is so intriguing and engaging that each time I read it I feel like I'm rediscovering it. You take it places that I never thought you would dare, and I'm delighted to read every word of it!
The prose is eloquent and captivating-stimulating the senses and pleasant to the eyes. There are so many authors in DBZ fandom that abuse the english language, and I truly appreciate that you can write with a mature style and employ language, rather than obnoxious formatting, to convey meaning to the reader. I respect and admire your integrity as a writer; this story has so much strength in that respect. I thank you for giving me the opportunity to enjoy it!
| daisy.insane-angel chapter 29 . 2/27/2007
I like where the story is headed, and though there isn't too much action for the moment, there is still the undrelying tension and suspence...
I'm excited about the fact that Reinyn might have to face his past and Vegeta in the near future, the fact that he has to come to terms on his own time and dealing with the closure he thinks is possible only in death.
I'm still wondering about the alien's prophicy that he would be the light. I'm looking foreward to where you take it in that aspect and hope to read more soon.
I'm glad that you're writing for the story again... This is still one of my all time favorite stories.

First of all, if you ever have a question about cannon you can always visit the following site. (remove the spaces)
Ask a question and the rabid fanfic writers will give you a lively debate about the topic. You would also get a very enthusiastic welcome.
Or you could just ask me. If I know the answer I'll let you know. or I'll look it up in the handy dandy manga.
No, Ox King never lived with Roshi during DBZ.
I'm glad you put in that scene with ChiChi and Ox King. It reassured me. I think I may be the only reviewer who didn't think that Vegeta would make it all better. I think it will be an interesting meeting but there is a similarity between Vegeta and Reinyn that will cause them to butt heads. I don't think Reinyn had much respect for his dimension's Prince and that will carry over somewhat. However, the current Vegeta grew up under similar conditions to Reinyn. Freiza had no use for weeklings and I am certain that Vegeta had to earn his place in the pecking order there.
The difference being that Vegeta was not on the top of that pecking order the way Reinyn was. Vegeta also took unabashed glee in his work. I also don't imagine that Vegeta would want to follow the rules that Gohan and Reinyn set down for themselves. He'd just power up to max and beat the other down.
All in all, I really enjoyed this chapter and am really looking forward to reading the next one.
