I truly appreciate your effort in creating this wonderful lelouch x kallen story. I rarely find the fanfiction of this ship. I really want to thank you for for giving us this story_

This is a master piece! Awesome job with what you and everyone assisting you created! I am looking forward to follow your work and read Game of Shadows!
Masquer Q chapter 1 . 5/23/2020
I read through the entire book in a day, and whew! Gotta say, that was an awesome ride! I hope that you are doing well in the recent rough times. Seeing as there aren't many updates as of 2020, I do get worried that many authors are having troubles from the pandemics. I truly hope for the best of you and all the other fantastic writers.
As for my review on the book itself, I love the character depth you gave to Caedron and the main cast. The parental roles you gave to Marianne and Charles was a bit bizarre for me to swallow at first, but it worked out. The twisted ways in which parents 'care' for their children can be seen both in fiction and reality, though definitely not a representation of the norm. I personally felt that it was a bit rushed towards the end of the book, but it's understandable considering there were lots going on in the small time frame.
TL;DR, I loved it! Have a great weekend!
Goten Askil chapter 26 . 5/15/2020
I so wanted someone in the Black Knights to respond to the briefing like "Let's summarize. They have a super strategist, a 7-th generation Knightmare piloted by a Rounds-level Ace, and a well-trained army of mixed origins working as a cohesive efficient unit. So basically we're fighting ourselves."
ResistingFate chapter 50 . 3/26/2020
Let's start with my favourite scenes. The war against China and the air warfare portrayed a grand scale to the front. Zero-Kallen finally gets a chance to shine while working with Lelouch here, surprising the enemy and winning the day.

Overall, in the story, there is good detail with multiple different characters. I ended up liking your original characters the most, but the Code Geass characters all added to the story in creative ways.

Euphie having her own agency for her plans is a nice change of pace. Suzuki is a good counterweight for her.

I find Charles very cute in this story. A warm-hearted father-figure when it comes to Lelouch and Cornelia.

Caedron and his shadows are written with a certain intellect and that's come with a satisfying level of intimidation that suits their roles perfectly. I enjoyed reading his thoughts through his campaign and am sad that he is gone.

Ariadne, the nephew of Caedron is a joy to read. Her dedication to her work and the conflict it causes her with Caedron is good drama.

What I take away from Ice and Fire.

For Kallen, she fails to adapt her worldview fast enough and her plans end up falling apart when the inevitability of Caedron's death hits her.

Lelouch's naivety in love and failure to be honest with Kallen results in his own plans failing, and the people he loves, paying for it.

As a society Rebellion story it takes the actions on a diverse range of people to stand up against oppression, and success can be undermined quickly. The Japanese do achieve a better standing but are not free of Britannia. The silver lining is that this is still enough to inspire changes in other Areas.

Thank you for this story. Ice and Fire is a joy to read.
ThatIndieReviewer chapter 10 . 2/9/2020
Wow. Caedron is an asshole. I know you probably have some grand tragic plan for him and he has those soft moments with Kallen, but man what an asshole. Shocking out one of our main characters and physically abusing the other. I get that your indicating he's strict and desires to protect Kallen. But I fear your writing is leaning more towards abusive and manipulative. Much like how some authors try to write romance but instead come off as stalkerish and misogynistic.
Where does this OC get off coming into this awesome anime, hurting our favourite girls and I'm going to guess being placed on the same pedestal as Lelouch in terms of intellect. So far, he's not winning me over.
ThatIndieReviewer chapter 5 . 2/7/2020
Not gonna lie, that intro kinda sucks the agency out of Kallen. In the original, Zero was a symbol built piece by piece by Lelouch and representing his ideals. Here it just a disguise. If all credit is ascribed to some character we never heard of before, then where's the merit of this what if story of saying Kallen is Zero. Heck it actually doesn't make sense why Caedron isn't Zero. He's more physically imposing, actually a man and has no apparent qualms about fighting Britannia if he willingly fights and provides devastating strategy.

It would've made more sense if Kallen had different but good plans that just needed to be ironed out by a very reluctant Caedron. As it stands, Kallen just puts on a mask and has an idea. You don't really get the epic scale of Zero the man who makes miracles in this sense.
Guest chapter 14 . 10/23/2019
Mary sue OCs and Lelouch is a background character. This isn't a code geass fic. Don't bother wasting your time reading it
w0if chapter 49 . 9/13/2019
okay, while i'm still a bit miffed about cause and effect and plausibility giving way to foreshadowing and drama, the characters, the emotions and the vibes of most scenes were fantastic. while I felt somewhat let down through some parts, now that i'm at the end I have no regrets. Thanks for a great read!
w0if chapter 47 . 9/12/2019
Uhm yeah, i love it when a story cheats its ass off to help the bad guys to create drama... Makes you really understand the stakes

HispanicSamuri chapter 24 . 4/30/2019
I really do feel like you were listening to TFK while writing this. “The Part that hurts the most” i feel like was playing while writing the interactions between Kallen and Lelouch

“Every day I get a little closer
And everything I'm made of starts to melt away
I see the signs but I can't quite make the words out
All I want is to be near you but I push you away

I just wanna get away
But I hurt you every day

The part that hurts the most
The part that hurts the most is me
The most is you
It's everything I do without you

The part that hurts the most is me
The most is you
It's everything I do without you”
HispanicSamuri chapter 23 . 4/30/2019
Yep “Scream” by TFK is definitely the theme of this chapter.
“I can't erase it anymore
It follows me everywhere I go
It's like a mask that I don't want to wear anymore

I think I've found a way to let it go
But it's still too soon to know for sure
I'd give everything I am
To just feel somethin'

Can you feel that?

Scream! When the pressure breaks me
When it's too hard to see
When I feel like I'm at the end of my rope
One more time
Scream! When the fire burns me
When it's hard to break free
When I feel like I'm standin' on the edge
Of it all this time

I can't suppress it anymore
Here it comes like a flood
Just like before, when it rains, it pours
And I don't want to swim anymore

I think I've found a way to let it go
I don't know, I've never felt this way before
But with everything I am, I just let go...

Can you feel that?

Scream! When the pressure breaks me
When it's too hard to see
When I feel like I'm at the end of my rope
One more time
Scream! When the fire burns me
When it's hard to break free
When I feel like I'm standin' on the edge
Of it all this time

You make me wanna scream...

It's not a joke
I've felt as messed up as you do
I've felt the feelings you've been feeling
Been through the same things
You've been through
And I know how hard it is
To feel like you're all alone
We've all been given a second chance
But the choice is all our own

Scream! When the pressure breaks me
When it's too hard to see
When I feel like I'm at the end of my rope
One more time
Scream! When the fire burns me
When it's hard to break free
When I feel like I'm standin' on the edge
Of it all this time

Standin' on the edge of it all this time”
HispanicSamuri chapter 22 . 4/30/2019
As I was reading this story up to this point I was listening to some Thousand Foot Krutch and 2 songs from them I feel like fit very well for how both Kallen and Lelouch feel about each other. The first song “Take it out on me” I feel like fits Lelouch with how he’s trying to get Kallen to open up but she has so much trauma in her life she just doesn’t feel like she can.

The second song “Scream” I feel like can be heard from both of their perspectives or as if they’re talking with each other I won’t put the whole lyrics to the song but I feel like if you think of this song that way Lelouch would definitely say this part to Kallen.

“It's not a joke
I've felt as messed up as you do
I've felt the feelings you've been feeling
Been through the same things
You've been through
And I know how hard it is
To feel like you're all alone
We've all been given a second chance
But the choice is all our own”

Give these songs a listen while reading this I think they definitely fit this story.
