This is Beeezie, here with your 5/5 reviews! :) I decided that I really did need to start reviewing this already, because it's a brilliant story.
I probably come off as a horribly lame reviewer to you, because I can never seem to write very much, but it's really just that I adore your writing. Some of the weaknesses I've noticed in your other stories - especially with integrating dialogue and description - aren't here in this one. You couldn't stop writing? Guess what. It shows.
Lysander is awesome in this. I'm glad that I have some idea of who my Lysander is as a person and have played with his character a little, because if I hadn't, I don't know that I'd ever be able to write him, because yours has taken a pretty firm grip on my mind. (Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but it really is just a little. His personality is so strong in this and his character is so well-developed and well-written.)
And, lest I forget Hugo - this is a different Hugo than the one I've usually read, and I really, really like him, too. He's a little bit snarky, which I always love to see in a main character, because then they're usually saying what I'm thinking. :P
The only issue I saw with this was that there were a few typos. I didn't write most of them down and now I can't find them again (which shows how minor they were), but I did jot down in the paragraph starting, "Erm, thanks," toward the end, "were" should be "where."
Terrific story. I will continue reviewing it... soon. Ish. When my life stops making me crazy.
Author's Response: Hey, Beeezie.
No, you don't come off as a lame reviewer and that you adore my writing is like the best compliment ever! Description is usually my weakest point, which I think is why i love this story so much. Besides the fact that it's about my boys (yes, I call them my boys :P). I really couldn't stop writing, I had the first four chapters in a week. LOL.
I love Lysander. He's just so easy to make your own because you literally know nothing about him. I wish I could say I worked hard to make him so well-developed, but I just wrote and he just came to me as this character and I loved him already, so he had to stay. Him and Lorcan.
I've heard that a lot, him being a different Hugo than usual. He is made so purposely. I love him, though.
Yes, typos. I said on the forums that this story was going through edits today. Hopefully my baby will be rid of those soon.
Thank you so much! :D
