This is THE most awesome Spartacus fanfic I have ever read and I hope you are kind when writing the other ending of this story, if you still intend to. Anyway If you do have involve Crassus and Ceaser or something like that.

I cannot wait for the next bits you plan on writing! I had though about writing a happier ending to the finally but I cannot stop myself from crying on the last episodes. (btw don't let the name fool you, I'm a girl lol Phoenix )

I've read this story in one go! Quite an accomplishment! I really liked the premise of your story and you did well to mix your characters into the world created by the writers of this show!
On the negative side Neith is a little irritating. Sorry! But it’s true! I mean I liked her but she kept being the best at everything. I rolled my eyes a few times. I half expected Gannicus and Crixus to also be in love with her - because she was just so awesome, she knew everything because of her endless knowledge! Plus was there a language she didn’t speak? Haha. Very funny.
I liked your new character Baldovin! Cool warrior! Although he seems to have a bigger presence in your story once he marries Neith. Which is a pity! The scene where he and Neith speak to the crowd was funny. No disrespect, but as much as I like Baldovin him and his new wife "thanking" the crowds for their loyalty was in my opinion not their job! It was just a little more of Neith being the best again and taking charge.
The Neith/Gannicus sister/brother parallels were totally cooool. Gannicus with a sister would have been interesting to see! So it’s an idea I wish we saw on the show! Sometimes it felt like too much! All the face touching, hugging and making ‘coo eyes’ at each other... Hope I never treat my brother like that. Were you going for friendly or "more than friends"? Which is why I wouldn’t have been surprised if Gannicus ended up in love with her. On the eve of battle Neith doesn’t want to be with her new husband but wants to hang out with Gannicus and Sibyl?! Glad Gannicus had his priorities straight! He took his woman and hightailed for their tent. LOL
I’m kind of neutral on Sybil as a character. But you managed to make her bland and kind of… silly? Literally no personality. Sorry! You did better with Laeta and even Kore. Love those two.
One final thing... Sometimes your spelling is off. That’s fine. But you make the same grammatical errors throughout the story. For example, you never use a comma correctly, instead replacing it with a period. Or you don’t use the comma at all. I know fanfic is not perfect, but it is published work. I would suggest having a look at the way you construct those tricky dialogue scenes.
Overall, nice story. It definitely had highlights so well done for writing. This fandom needs authors who step outside of the box a little.

If neith and baldovin have a boy in one ir those final chapter, they should name him with spartacus real name

Oh my God, Spartacus is in love with Neith?! For me that came truly unexpected! But I like the idea; and that he's so selfless, he wanted her to find the happiness he couldn't give her...
Just one thing I've noticed: In English it seems to be common not to use a lot of commas. I don't know if it's true but one of my English teachers actually said that in English grammar there weren't any definite rules when to use a comma and when not.
But sometimes a comma can help clarify the meaning of a sentence: "Neith smiled slightly unsure of herself suddenly." In this case I was wondering did Neith "smile slightly" or was she "slightly unsure" of herself? I think with a comma it could be made clearer.
But perhaps it's just because English is not my native language and for native speakers it's easier to understand?
Anyway, thanks for the update and I'm interested to read your alternative endings ;-)
