Sorry it's so...short. And fucked up. Are you kidding? This is WONDERFUL fucked-up-ness! 8^D Omg yes... *goes to reread*
I'm glad you enjoyed it for what it was. ^____^
Thanks for reviewing!
Even though you say it's finished ;_;, I can't say no to fics with everybody x Al in it, especially the way you write it. Al's always getting the shaft--Then again, Al's my favorite muse to
torture write. XD;
*still stalking 'After the Fall'*
Definitely finished this time. *grin* Yeah, Al does get somewhat of an unfair position in fic (especially Roy/Ed - which I try to remedy, but I'm only one very slow mediocre writer). XDDDD
He is fun to torture, isn't he? XDDD
*still stalking 'After the Fall'*
Oh wow, people still remember that fic? I feel honoured. ^^
A fic? For me? O_O *feels loved, it's not even her birthday* *HUGS YOU*
Argh, but this fic...it totally tore at me. TT^TT Not in a bad way (well, sorta), but it's so good. It's got that hollow, empty feel of hope there with the way Alphonse is trying to think of resisting, and you kinda get the feel that Ed really is exploiting Al's lack of free will--more than Roy ever has or ever will, even if he found out that Al has that handicap.
You are wonderful.
Awww. See, I suck at birthdays. Am much better at sudden bursts of desire to attempt doing something nice. ^___^
It's arguable that this fic is 'something nice', but I'm glad you...hmm...'liked' isn't the word, is it? *grin* I'm glad it had impact. And I'm glad you 'got' what I was trying to say.
You are wonderful.
You are. And don't forget that. XDD
Thank you X3 and it's such a nice surprise.
XD I liked it a lot, even though it tore at me, so it was like a sadistic gift from you to a masochistic me? XD
Thank you. TT^TT
I'm so happy to see this post! And it's beautiful and so sad.
I'm glad you enjoyed! Thanks very much for reviewing!
This was sad and creepy and hurting but all in a wonderful way. It all just makes you feel awful for Alphonse, who has come to the point of not even being able to protest his situation while those in control battle through who "owns" him. It's terrible, but fantastic, and the sad thing is, I can see it. It makes me want to cry for Al.
Wonderful, excellent job. I love your writing style for this.
I do love insightful reviews, thank you for that. And plausibility - that's great to hear as well. It's always hard to tell when writing.
This is not my usual style, but it's good to hear that it worked. Thank you very much for your kind words. ^___^
I don't know how I missed this series, but it's love. The fight over Al, both Ed and Roy being selfish, but at the same time thinking they are doing what is best, and poor Al without enough will to know what he wants (except the books that got burned).
My continuation of it has been rather...random. *grin* Said I'd do another one after saying that the third one was going to be the last because people asked, and then didn't deliver for months. Oops.
But I'm glad you liked it! And I really appreciate the fact that you still take the time to review fics, despite being busy and fandom-famous. XDDDD
Fandom Famous? *snort*
Yeah I suck at writing reviews, that's all. God I hope people don't think I'm a snob.
I don't think people perceive you as a snob at all - you're one of the most personable (and least scary) writers around. ^_____^
And by the way, I'm really glad to see you writing again.
Thanks - life has just not been that conductive to writing lately. Ah well, you win some, you lose some. XD
YAY YOU UPDATED. ♥ *grabs song along*
The broken feeling is brought out really nicely by the division [ -- ], and how sometimes it's just a few statements. x3 Though, for some, I had to reread it, because I got confused as to who was talking to who. XDD;; But cleared up now, whee.
Aww, Al, he's too obedient and...erm, no other word at the moment, but yeah. T^T
Awesome arc, yo. ^w^
*sheepish* I did wonder about how confusing it was going to be...Oops. But yay for it becoming clearer on re-read.
Al's often seen in the fandom as a doormat, so I thought - why not make him one for real? And have a terribly ironic reason for it? XDDDD
Thank you for reading! ^___^
... ouch. That hurt in a really hurtful way, but it did it while making me love every single second of it.
... now that takes talent.
I loved the very last line, futility would be better, perhaps, in a way that is probably unhealthy.
The sheer amount of fuckedupness in this is horrifying and wonderful, and Roy's bitterness at himself and at Ed is just - and Al's narration of life with Ed is just - it's all...
You've gone and made me incoherent! *whimpers for everyone*
I should probably apologize for going 'yay!' at your first comment. *grin* But seriously, I did want it to have impact, and for people to not hate it - so that's great to hear.
The last line tried to be a throwback to the main ideas (and name) of the entire arc, and in that way give some sort of closure. To hear that it did mean something is great. XD
Your review gave me a moment of pure squee, by the way. Thanks for that. XDDD
Strange that Ed, knowing what he knows, will still give Al direct commands -- but I suppose he feels he knows best.
As Ed does. *g* Thanks for reviewing!
Wow. First FMA fic I've read in AGES, but it was you, so, I couldn't resist. ^^;;
I'm starting to remember now why I loved this fandom. This was truly stomach-wrenching, and I recall now just HOW MUCH I love your style. I usually don't go for minimalism in fics, but yours just WINS.
I really don't know what else to say, since I haven't reviewed anything in A REALLY. LONG. TIME. @.@;; But I do like this, yes, and love you. ♥
Wow, that's very flattering, thank you. XDDD
I suck with my lack of ability to describe stuff and twisted take on the characters. But I'm glad you like it. *g* It's true that everytime I run off to another fandom, a fic ends up bringing me back, at least to read stuff.
Much love right back at you. ^___^
its been 24 hours and im still....without words...???...aching,breathless,i had to walk away from the computer. You are a wonderful writer..i...am..haunted..thank you!
Wow, I think that I will always regret not finding this series sooner, but oh well, better late than never. Still, I can't access the third story in this series: Infection. It says that I'm not authorized to view it. Is it open for public to view? Thanks
