| QueenoftheSnows chapter 15 . 4/15
Well kudos to North for being so understanding and getting Jack to open up.
| QueenoftheSnows chapter 11 . 4/14
I have felt so much like Jack in the past with people coming and going. You really have written a story with strong emotions about relationships and loneliness. I look forward to reading the rest. That and I like Jack and Pitch getting closer together and having a consensual relationship.

I've read this several times, and its never not good. Though sometimes I can't help but wonder what would have happened if Jack was consumed by shadows.
but yeah still loving this story 3
| E chapter 21 . 1/6/2016
I've recently read a story by another author that had exactly the same plot and details. The Waterhorse Uisge, the schools under attack, Jack with Pitch, the Sanskrit scarf with silver paint that hides fears, etc. Like, it was a mirror. The only difference is that this one is not only more detailed and interesting, but it actually pulls you into the story. The other one seemed like a fan quickly wrote it with terrible grammar and pacing. Too lazy to see who wrote it first, but I like this one MUCH better. It doesn't hurt my brain.
| Kentario chapter 21 . 8/8/2015
…I'm trying to think of what to say but I'm just…stunned! WHAT AN AMAZING STORY! I've spent the last few days and nights rereading it because I got stuck and WOW, what an ending! It left me wide eyed and breathless! Much kudos(during the times I looked in the dictionary, I learned it's "much kudos") to you, amazing author! Now to run off and read the sequel!
| Karano chapter 21 . 2/27/2015
OH MY GOD.
What should I say? Or do? I have no words to describe this perfection.
Maybe after I read the sequel...maybe I'll regain my words then?

Youre making this really difficult for me. This story is one of the best RotG fanfics Ive read so far. And I would really, really have loved to read it until the end and then label it as perfect. But unfortunately, thats no longer possible after this chapter. Im fine with Jack and Pitch developing a mutual understanding and forming a father-son-like relationship. And perhaps itd also been ok if that relationship wouldve become more... passionate later. But the way youve described it? No. Thats just not realistic, and since youve attempted and managed to write realistically throughout the rest of the story, it kinda ruins it. I cant get over how well-written all of this is, and how quickly youve made it impossible for me to continue liking it. Because love doesnt work the way youve described it. Yes, theres passion. And yes, it makes you irresponsible. But at some point, soon after, when the adrenaline is gone, you start thinking more down-to-earth. And that point is simply missing in your story. Its like: "Oh, well, Im gay now. Pfft, who cares. No need to waste a thought about that!" And even in a world where homosexuality is accepted in every developed society, its just not that simple. The discovery of ones homosexuality still causes angst and self-doubt. It still causes a feeling of doing something wrong. Im not saying thats how it should be. Its just how it is. Of course, this might be different for Jack Frost, but then that would still need an explanation. So, to conclude, this is still a very good story, but at this point I choose to not continue it because Id rather remember it as a good one with wasted potential than as another unlikeable boyslove story.
| TARDISbluu chapter 20 . 10/17/2014
Which, yes, I did just belatedly see your ending AN about there actually being a happy ending, but seriously! You'd better not be fibbin'. *sniff*
| TARDISbluu chapter 21 . 10/17/2014
Nooooooooooooooooo! This is so saaaaaaaad! D,; Whyyyy? Why couldn't you have issued a tissue warning?! *cries* You've literally made me cry - I'm crying right now. This is awful. And I'm not joking, or exaggerating, or anything, like a lot of people do - I'm literally crying right now.
This is what I get for being so emotionally invested in fictional characters. *sniff*
Your sequel better have a good ending, 'cuz I don't think my heart can take much more. I mean, this is an amazing story. Really. It really is. If it weren't, I wouldn't be crying right now. But... god... It's so SAAAAAAAAD!
| Uniasus chapter 21 . 9/27/2014
Oh my, this was an amazing ride! I love what you've done for Jack here, realistically showing the problems of isolation and how that's affected his mentality. And when Pitch re-took the shadows...ah, my heart.
| sakurahimecool blue chapter 21 . 2/11/2014

| Nikokami chapter 15 . 1/12/2014
It says something about these characters when I read their dialogue and the voice that reads it out in my head does itin their accents. Automatically. :D
| AbsoluteReader1995 chapter 17 . 11/16/2013
I don't quite understand the whole thing that happened with jack, pitch, and man in moon. what exactly was the reason behind the "It's time." with pitch and jack?
