|Reviews for The Evolution of Fear|
| strixx chapter 21 . 6/6
This story has been in my list of Top Fics since I finished reading it circa 2013, and I’ve re-read it quite a few times since then. The fact that you updated it just made my entire day brighter, when I was expecting it to be the exact opposite.
Your writing is spectacular! The image of dead grandma Keeney laughing cruelly above him, and his memories that call back to Billy shoving the pages of a book into his mouth, were my favorite parts of this chapter. I think you captured the effects of the fear toxin really well :)
If this is the end, then it’s a beautiful place to leave off. Jonathan Crane, back in action. If not, I wouldn’t complain! Thank you so much for sharing this fic with the world, and for writing a Jonathan Crane fic that sticks close to his story. Those are hard to find. I really, really appreciate you as a writer.

Oh my gosh, it's back. I'm so happy I was able to inspire you to continue with this story (I'm the one who sent you the ask on your tumblr about it.) Not only that, but this scene? I was so excited when I figured out where this was going, and it was fascinating to see Jonathan's internal thoughts leading up to the infamous line.

Aaah brilliant! As we finally venture into film territory, all the character development so far makes it a perfect prologue to Crane's actions, as well as a keen insight into his mind.
After such a long time away, this chapter has renewed my interest. Please continue!

You'd definitely get more reviews if you updated faster. Since you take so long, they probably forget about this story. Anyways that's my theory but your writing is good and the story is interesting. I'm looking forward to what happens next.

I really like this chapter!

This story continues to be really well-written and engaging, and the way you write Crane feels both in-character and terrifying. It's an interesting touch that Crane respects Ra's and knows that Ra's could ruin him if he so chose, but carries on because he wants to, not because he feels forced to. That really suits the character. He feels like he's still in control even though he's dealing with someone more powerful than him.
I also liked the scene where Crane tests the enhanced toxin on himself. The detail used there was really well-done, especially the detail on Crane's feelings under the toxin's effect - it shows that Granny Keeny still scares him to some degree, even though he killed her. The scene at the end where he reminisces over Sharp and what happened to him was great foreshadowing. I wonder what Crane intends to do to Sharp - he's already been driven insane by Crane's toxin.
Excellent work - I'm really interested to see where this leads to, and I really liked the last sentence.

Aghhhhh! Your fanfiction is so beautifully written! I'm stoked for the next chapter if you're currently writing it! ( ͈ ॢꇴ ͈ॢ)･* you go girl!

The message below was a nice threat stating that the story is great and if it does not continue then Scarecrow would be very upset.

It's simply not safe to not continue to write this story.

This continues to be a really interesting piece. As always, I love the interaction between the characters - the personalities of Falcone and Crane came across very well, and Crane's disdain for Falcone was very clear. I imagine this may be setup for what Crane eventually does to him. I love all the little personality moments for Crane, such as his dislike of alcohol and how he is unafraid of Falcone. Crane's revenge at the end of the chapter was another great (and frightening) moment. I'm still searching for the Poe reference, so no internet points for me.
I'm interested to see where this story goes - your take on Crane is terrifying and, as usual, very well-written. Excellent job!

I LOVED Carmine Falcone in this chapter. I can't wait for the next update... I'm already looking forward to his confrontation with Batman.

I was both looking forward to send dreading what would happen in this chapter... and you didn't disappoint! Keep up the great writing.

I know he'll turn out to be an evil bastard and all, but.. Poor Jonathan! I can't wait to keep reading!

Again a gap in BB is filled. Nice work. You aren't afraid to have more than just a few paragraphs on emotions, thoughts and descriptions - a good thing. Update please!
