I have read more Fenris / Hawke fanfic than I should probably admit to, but I have got to say that I loved the twist in this, the reimagining of mages to vampires. It fit so well, and made so much sense. I honestly didn't want the story to end. I look forward to more of your work.

This is a fantastic AU very well written having Hawke as a vampire is genius and Fenris as a hunter who sees the woman Hawke is sees beyond her vampiric nature and finds love with her is very well told. I also like how you had made the Qunari into Russians I can honestly see them being such the interaction between Hawke's group and the Theirins was great and having Alistair have a love of fishing added more to his character. The action was fantastic the fight with Howe's assassins the vampire cult and the fight with Denarius were all exciting and well written all in all I enjoyed reading this story.

I love how everyone worked together to get Danarius. Isabela scouting the sea, Aveline rallying the guard to watch the gates, and Varric watching the inside with connections. So that even Fenris couldn't deny he was no longer alone. This was a surprizingly wonderful story. I always love Fenris' transition from hating Hawke to loving her. You write it out very well everytime, though I am still surprized at how much I have come to like a vampiric story. :)

I honestly HATE vampire stories, yet setting the mages as vampires and Fenris as a hunter helps me to SO much more understand his hate and fear for mages. Plus the whole blood magic/vampire thing, quite poetic in a way. Very well written, ingenius idea. I am finding myself truly enjoying a vampire story for once.

This was absolutely gorgeous. From the well-picked poetry to start the scenes to the startling way you managed to make this AU just *work*, it was fantastic and fascinating. I loved all of the ways you translated the characters, the originality of the differences, and of course, the amazing development of the romance. Thank you for sharing.

I was a tad reluctant to read this fic at first (no doubt the result of a certain popularized series featuring a useless female protagonist and sparkling vampires having made me all but swear off Vampires for life)
And yet -I thought- this is loquaciousquark: the writer that has yet to write a single story that disappoints. So onwards I read, and what a delight.
The story was marvelously transferred from the world of Thedas to 19th century London, and the characters so rife with life and personality that you expect them to step of the page (err... screen) at any moment. You can understand the characters that Bioware has presented us with loquaciousquark's masterful rendition of them (and not just in Ever Rise, let me assure you!).
Let's not forget the /romance/. I don't want to blow the story too much; Fenris as a dark brooding hunter of the dead that rise and Hawke a creature of the night -composed of wry wit and strength- both with fragility lurking beneath age old scars. The romance sparks from confrontation and transforms into immolating blaze and shifts once more into a cleansing fire, whilst still providing the reader with ample dosages of wit, humor, camaraderie, angst, emotional turmoil, cameos/references and Mass Effect to keep said reader well and sated throughout the entirety of 14 chapters.
I rate this story a full on 10/10, my only regret being that I ever approached it with trepidation.

"The Vael is torn." Ha ha. I didn't get it the first time I read this story which makes it all the punnier now. Oh you.
