Aaaaa, that was beautiful. It's very rare to come across fanfiction that portrays marriage and infidelity in such a mature way, and I loved that. The characterisation was fantastic too, along with the characters' interactions. My favourite thing, though, was the beautiful writing style; the descriptions were, for lack of a better word, so incredibly pretty. I love how you depict Roderich's inner turmoil in such a beautiful way, especially that metaphor about how he is a drowning man and Gilbert is the last breath that will pull him down. The descriptions of Erzsébet and of Gilbert gave me goosebumpsthe blood knight and the barbarian princess'), and every word was just so pretty. Overall, this was a beautifully written, mature and realistic portrayal of one of my favourite pairings, and definitely one of the best PruAus fics I've ever read. Great job, and thanks for writing this!

Good God I love this one. The ending is so realistic and well written. Whole fic was like that. Words perfectly chosen. Gilbert's caracterization was soo good...
Bravo, one of the best PruAus fics there are

I LOVED THIS! This fic was awesome! Just... The interactions that Roderich had with Erzsébet and Gilbert were so intense and AAAAH. It was awesome. And George deValier is awesome. I love him as much as I love this fanfiction.

I don't think I could ever find words to describe a story like this. I would love to write a long long worded review over every single aspect of the writing and plot, but I am unable to. I apologize. Stories like this are very, very rare. Stories that leave you with an ace at the ending. Stories that rise like a crescendo and move so quickly at one point, then fall back at the next. Stories that flow and ebb and drag you under with them. This is such a story. I can't even begin to write how much emotion this story has and the way it makes me, as the reader, feel.
All I can can is thank you and I hope you can know what that means.

I cannot stop rereading this. This is probably my favourite oneshot ever and I'm not even that much of a PruAus shipper! I love the writing style; the sophisticated air to it I think reflects Roderich's character brilliantly, and the conclusion at the end is just perfect. I've read most of your Hetalia stories, thank you for writing all of them:') it can be so difficult to find really good writers on this site so finding you made my day _

Ahhh omgsh this was absolutely gorgeous!
Beautiful! I love this story so much you have no idea. PruAus is so my OTP and ahh the angst in this one was phenomenal! And I loved how you portrayed Hungary cause she is actually such an amazing character.

I loved the story so much, its definitely one of my favorites. One i thing i always ask though is why Francis went back to Paris

This is really hot and brings alive the agony and the beauty of Gilbert's and Roderich's feelings. Please keep writing for this fandom; your writing style is awesome and I really, really liked how you kept them within character. I wish that you can write a sequel to this, though - reading such a passionate Gilbert and conflicted Roderich finding happiness together would be such a treat!

Between you and DeValier, I think I've finally given into PruAus! I can't fight it anymore with writing like this in the fandom. Lovely piece. You have a very distinct style of writing that's really interesting to read. I hope to see more like this from you!

Wow. This was so great. I loved reading this and watching the build up, the peak, the crash... and the hopeful ending. I think you did a beautiful job :) I cannot get enough of your descriptions of how much Roderich desired Gilbert, and The Blood Knight title fitted him perfectly. Seeing Gilbert being so vulnerable also breaks my little heart.
Thank you so much for that 1 hours of goodness. Very, very well done!
Keep writing xx

I rarely see such mature treatment of the Austria/Hungary/Prussia debate. It's fascinating, really, to see it in action: Gilbert and Erzsébet as the passionate young lovers whose anger destroys their match, Erzsébet and Roderich as the sickeningly domestic pairing drawn together by the promise of a peaceful life of music and beauty, and Roderich and Gilbert as the opposites that secretly yearn for each other and see each others' strengths. I maintain that Gilbert and Erzsébet can be themselves and properly give and take in a relationship, but I do see that they may feed off of each other instead of giving each other a way to vent; furthermore, Erzsébet does have to be a woman sometimes, which may not happen with Gilbert.
I appreciate the maturity you gave Roderich and Erzsébet during their divorce. It seems characteristic of them and is overall an ideal end to their marriage. And though I've never much liked Austria, I find myself perfectly fine with Roderich's point of view and characterization. But - as with most fanfiction I read that features Prussia - my heart goes to Gilbert for his slow, captivating journey to self-awareness and love.
