| Andrea chapter 1 . 1/7
I am a pretty emotional reader when it comes to fanifiction. I will laugh loudly at amusing sections, scream at the page when a character makes me angry, or fall silent and still with worry. But this is the first and only fiction that has ever legitimately made me cry.
The piece is flawlessly written, with every word in its proper place. It's hard to find fanfiction written like that. Rarer still is an author that can accurately convey a character's thought and voice, especially when they are given next to none in the original work and communication is made through choice and gesture.
These combine to make this a believable scene, worthy of creation by the original makers of Dishonored, and bring us a sense of closure for those questions that were never fulfilled.
Thank you for writing this.

Such a sad but well-written closure scene. Moved me more than any part of the game did, probably because the player doesn't exactly get in-depth descriptions of Corvo's emotions.
You're really good at creating a flow of words that blends in with the tone of the original work, so there's always the right atmosphere to get lost in reading your stories.
I'm glad I read this one a day after the Moving Castle oneshot though, cause now I'm all teary-eyed.

To me, one of the peculiar things that stuck in my mind was that, I thought, the voice of the Heart belonged to the Empress, and yet there was never any explicit comment on it. Maybe that had to deal with the nature of Corvo's character; or maybe it just made for better story-telling, because it added to the eerie and heart-breaking overtures of the story.
All throughout the game, the Heart expresses its desire to rest; yet I never really thought about how that would be achieved, post-game. Destroying the Heart seems to destroy Corvo's link to the Empress, but also, it gives her the opportunity to finally be at peace, which all Corvo would want for her in the end. I enjoyed your rendition of the Heart's destruction; by burning it, it seems that the Heart is almost given a funeral. Nice concept.
Additionally, the mechanics of this fic is superb; the writing is very elegant and sleek, and your style is very clear and enjoyable.

This is both beautiful and very sad... I always wondered if Corvo knew who the voice of the Heart belonged to, though I usually end up thinking that he must have. He probably knew her better than anyone. Anyway, it's nice to know that there are other people besides me who interpreted Corvo as a man with a heart. Just by looking at the way he interacts with Emily, I came to believe that he is the kind and caring sort. Your writing is lovely, by the way :) Thanks for the quality read!

I'm impressed. You hit the tone of the game quite well and you write a convincing Corvo and a good Heart. This could easily have been a cut-scene in the game, well done.
On thing though: "Then, when her quiet rang with finality," I think it would be better to use "silence" here. It might just be me.

Corvo still faces an enemy after all. Old friend's spirits.
I enjoyed this, please do write more.
