A young Raenef IV starts building his power base...starting witha a certain demon of the Third Order.
(#) miskatonic 2006-05-26 01:32:37 PMI left feedback after you'd first posted this one for yuletide; I hadn't read the comic at the time, I just really enjoyed the fanfic. Since then, I've finally gotten my paws on this series, and I like your fanfic even more than I did before. This is such a neat, inventive extrapolation on what's given in the series.
(And I'm so glad you've reposted here; I had a hard time trying to locate it in the yuletide archive when I wanted to read it again.)
Author's response^__^ I'm glad that it reads even better once you know who everyone is. It grew rather larger than the original idea I had, and I was kind of proud of how well it turned out. I'm glad that other folks enjoy it.
(#) Nobodys_Somebody 2006-09-03 11:10:11 PMYour story was great! A little weird; seeing Raenef so serious through most of it, but I liked it. Do you plan on making more of them?
Author's responseYeah, Raenef IV had a bit of a different personality from his successor. :) And I don't have anymore Demon Diary stuff in the works right now, no, though it's one of those fandoms that I'd like to do more in. :)
- I'd just finished reading the last volume of Demon Diary when I found this fic, so I have to say that it was absolutely perfect. Young Raenef IV as you have portrayed him is just... utterly as I would have imagined him being. That ruthless greed for power, and his cunning, his coldness and cool political calm. Beautifully done. The fight scenes were very well done as well and your portrayal of Eclipse as a younger demon... His ambition, his drive, what had held him to Raenef IV. Wonderful. And Krayon as well, his "gift" to Raenef and their banter. This was truly excellent.
