You probably get this a lot and with good reason, but here goes... I can honestly say that few NOVELS have touched my heart in the way that this story has. I don't remember the last time I laughed, cried or got as angry at the events or characters in a story as I have while reading this (particularly during the beginning of Anara and Fenris's 'courtship'; seriously, were they both blind AND stupid?). Thank you, so so much, for creating this magnificent piece of literature for us to enjoy. I hope that the issues you were working through have resolved themselves - I know what it's like to be so stressed out that nothing gets done, vicious cycle etc... Thank you again, and best of luck! :)

Been reading this story for the past few days and I'm enjoying it. Your Hawke is toeing the line between believable and OP, but you've kept her on the good side of the fence and interesting - I have to say though, Bethany talking about Hawke swooning over Fenris I shrugged off as Bethany being Bethany, but when I read 'of all the times she daydreamed of being in the elf's arms...' I was totally blindsided. I mean, obviously this is working up to a romance between the two and the atmosphere is getting thick, but I don't remember reading anything like that at all up until this point? I feel like this suddenly jumped ahead a lot on Hawke's side behind the scenes.
THAT BEING SAID, still really like this story and am going to continue reading~

So I just binge read this story, and boy that was an amazing ride. Even though it was slightly AU at times, it felt right and didn't bother me at all. I think what I liked the most is how you dealt with the dialogues. They felt "in-game", every line was perfect for each character and I had a blast reading them. Also may I confess my love and passion for Derrick? That man is so hilarious, just imagining how he would have gone through the Blight is delightful! I loved the first chapters when Anara was disguising as a man - sort of- I liked how she still managed to befriend Fenris, considering the weird circumstances. I liked it when she was the Hawk, I admit, the aura and the effect she had on other people was so funny to read. She had this Assassin Creed feel to her that fit the story perfectly (I'm talking about the moment she saves Fenris in front of the Chantry, and she stood in the moonlight on the edge of the roof...I mean what a LEGIT BADASS, immaright?) I was positively fangirling about her. U_U
Anyway that was fun, I hope you're on for other stories like this, even though that was GOOD LORD 50 CHAPTERS I have no idea how you managed to do that, I've been working on my LotR fanfiction for years, and I'm still struggling writing the 16th chapter...
Thank you for this story and have a good day

This has been an amazing ride. You have a way of writing that draws a reader in and ensnares them. I only meant to read up to like... chapter 40 today and yet here I am finishing the last few lines of 50. Mind you I should have known that as soon as I saw them falling in love. Never before have I enjoyed a romance quite as much as I did this one. It truly felt like a "slow burn" in my chest. I also found myself, even knowing what was coming, actually feeling every emotion like it was new. Watching her mother die, seeing those two dance around each other, and even just the interactions with all her friends. You managed to make it all feel fresh and exciting, and for that I congratulate you.
Anyways to summarize. I enjoyed your story exceptionally. And I look forward to seeing what you might create in the future.
keep up the amazing work.

Um... it's been a while since I've played DA2, but this seems exactly like the game with only Hawke pretending to a guy? It was really interesting in the beginning but I kinda lost interest here since I haven't really seen much divergence from canon (I was expecting a whole brand new story and barely any resemblance to the original plot). The minor details may be different but the plot is still sadly just about the same.

I only read your ANs and I'm already super happy about this. I despise plagiarized stories that some writers claim to be 'fanfiction' when in reality it's just the same exact story with maybe a gender change here and there or a reworded sentence structure but still the same plot. Thank you for attempting to create your own story (despite the borrowed universe) and I can't wait to see what you have done here.

This was absolutely wonderful. I have spent the last several days glued to this, much to the dismay of everything else I was supposed to be doing. Absolutely delightful.

Oh Fenris... You adorable little fool...

This story has had me completely hooked all day :D it was SOOOOOOOOOOOO good!
| Nicole chapter 50 . 3/5/2016
That was fantastic! I also finished read Sense and Flexibility before this one, truly wonderful.

I'm just going to pause my reading of this to write a quick review, since it's maybe the tenth time tonight I've laughed out loud. Sense and Flexibility led me here, one of many, many fics I've read after falling into a DA and ME hole in the past several months. And yep, enjoyed that one a super lot too. More than once I thought I should stop and write, "Hello, you are great, keep writing forever," but it's always a little hard to actually stop reading and DO it. Anyway. The relationships you build are delightful and humorous in believable and lovingly indulgent ways, and I'm glad you've taken the hours and hours and hours to share them. I've spent hours and hours reading about them. So maybe I should say please stop so I can do something else with my life? But don't, actually. SHIP MORE.

| Artistic Ane chapter 50 . 2/5/2016
I LOVED IT I LOVED IT I MOTHER-LOVIN' LOVED IT!
The whole thing was executed perfectly, the characters were in sync with the canon but still had your own nice twist, Hawke was not Mary-Sue, you had so many adventures of your own design, little Beth at the end is adorable, everyone was frickin' adorable, I nearly cried on several occasions, laughed at more, and Fenris's realization to love was beautiful, I was so frickin' happy at the raging rant that everyone gave Hawke last chapter because quite frankly her reasoning was effing STUPID I was expecting more than Varric to hit her, and at the beginning gender-bending Hawke was flipping awesome but I'm kinda attracted to those things especially since she was so family-oriented, you totally had me back-tracking a bit cuz I thought that the epilogue started with older Bethany's memories but then Fenris laughed, and holy crap, I can't even say everything that I want to! Well done on you for such a wonderful story, thank you so much for sharing it with us!
