|Reviews for Determinant: One choice will change everything
| Guest chapter 50 . 2/11
Thank you for healing the fandom with your version of what Allegiant can look like! It truly embodied the spirit of how people can be mended and it gave a much more optimistic manifestation of what Tobias and Tris love can achieve. It also fleshed out the antagonised characters m, Peter and Caleb, proving that they are not just weak, vile or cowardly but there were reasons for their betrayal. I particularly liked how Tobias was given a chance to truly work on himself, and that it gave him and Tris to have a chance to breathe in their relationship, since it was getting a little toxic towards the end of Insurgent. There was much more character development - Tobias trusting Tris’ opinions properly when he started learning from his past mistakes. Adding the control computer which dictates what people see and hear is a stroke of genius. It really showed how Tris has deeply impacted Tobias, and how such goodness can heal everyone. I’ll be starting on Prior Rings and Becoming Determinant and I’m beyond excited!

To anyone who is reading these reviews, I wanted to note that I have reported the 6/24/2023 review that's currently showing just below this one. That review is a racist rant that is in every way wrong and abhorrent. I strongly, strongly disagree with every part of it. Unfortunately, since it was submitted by someone with an FF account, I can't remove it directly, but I have asked FF to remove it as quickly as possible. Hopefully, by the time you see this, it will have been removed, but if it's still there, please report it, too. Thank you.

I had gotten so angry at the Divergent trilogy after how Allegiant ended that I never reread it or watch the movies. Thank you for changing that for me and giving us the 3rd book we needed. In my opinion you kept the characters and the tone extremely consistent and I love everything about this story, even the parts that were the hardest to read. Kudos

Honestly while reading this and realizing how good the story line is, the consistency with the characters, the character development and finally the closure. I deeply regretted reading Alligiant. In my opinion this is a better alternative out there. Thank You for giving me this closure.

Oh my gosh, this is way much better than I expected it to be, I would definitely prefer this than Allegiant. Every way you wrote this story is amazing it's like if Veronica Roth wrote this story herself but better, you wrote each of their point of views perfectly and I will definitely read this again. I admit I did cry when Tobias left her and I was nervous that they wouldn't get back together but they did and I love a story that makes me cry. I love love this story SO much and I liked how it kept in line with Insurgent and Divergent. I liked how you didn't kill of the characters Uriah, and Tris, like Veronica Roth did. I found out about this story on an amazon review saying if you lost hope in Veronica after Allegiant then read this story it's way much better, after reading your story I agree. Thank you for bringing back my joy in the Divergent series. You really did such a great job with this!

Wow, what a wonderful story! I read it many years after you finished it (I only discovered the Divergent Series last year) and it makes me infinitely happy that it's still published here, because I feel so lucky to have been able to read the incredible, emotional ending you gave it!
I rarely finish a 100k words fic in 3 days, but the plot held me and refused to let me go, robbing me of hours of sleep in exchange for tons of emotion, lol! The different characters' characterization was spectacular (I loved how you wrote Tris, Tobias, Peter, Amar, Uriah, Zeke, Caleb, Cara, Christina, Anna... Well, all of them!) and I thank you for giving them the happy endings they deserved. :')
The action scenes were both awesome and exciting, and there were dozens of moments that had me on the edge of my seat! Speaking of tension, you did great with the handling of the conflicts between Tobias and Tris, because their differences felt real and necessary. There was so much character development between the two of them and I can't stop being happy about that!
In short, I love this fic and will always see it as the canon ending of the series in my heart, hehe. Eternal thanks for your hard work and dedication! Tobias and Tris never shined as bright as they did in this story! ;)

I love how they both ended thinking of the choices they've made, big and small, but mostly involving picking the other every time. Perfect!

I love having a look into their future, this story is truly amazing. I gotta say the part where Abigail says Tris is scarier got me laughing, as did George and Tobias' playful conversation about George taking care of the kids.

I love reading about their dates! They never had time to do what people would do under regular circumstances, so them getting a sense of normality in their relationship is really cool

I know we're not really meant to choose a favourite chapter or anything, but I'm positive this one is it for me...

Chris, they bring out emotion out of each other and out of every person who reads this! I'm happy he's had Chris and Zeke have his back and care about him, even with tough love and following the rules they're required. Can't wait for that talk between them, though. A year is a long tine

It seems like we keep getting more and more pieces to complete a puzzle we thought was already finished, but more keeps coming up! Love this and the fact that they had an honest conversation. I never did like Evelyn, but given the circumstances you've written it all happened under, it makes more sense, her actions make more sense, I guess.

Well I would've been surprised if Uri hadn’t shot his shot at some point, I guess. The timing might have been a bit awkward, but then again he'd never have done that while her actively being with Tobias lol. I just feel like Uri has always liked her and given the case, it's sad that he basically told her he'd be okay if she settled for him, knowing fully well Tobias is the one she's in love with. That being said, Tobias and Tris, you're both worth having each other, for god's sake. It's a good thing she's listening to what people around her tell her, though. He needs time to work through this, and might even need help?

Noooo! I mean, I get it, I do, it just doesn't make it any less heart-breaking
