To win back the life he once knew, Squall Leonhart must face an enemy impossibly alien... and as familiar as the back of his hand.

The raw, no-holds-barred way you handled the idea was really awesome, and the ending I'd been kind of expecting, but then I read that last word and the "omgholycrap O_O" came back and kicked me in the gut. :) Really powerful stuff.

I so buy the thing about Ellone, too. Because she kinda became Squall's mother figure, being the only one he ever developed trust with during the all important attachment years: Thus, Freud gets his panties all in a twist.
But aren't they not biologically brother and sister? Cause Raine adopted Ellone. That was the impression I got. Not that that changes much, it's still essentially as upsetting, being as it's a trusting familial relationship.
Anyways, A+ for originality, and your stories always manage to upset me more than anything else I've ever read, watched, or listened to. Which I hope you'll recognize as the compliment it is.
Mery S.U.E.? No wait, I was wrong, I do hate you :)
- There's not an "awesome" rating. There should be.
I damn near fell in love with Seifer (he got the best lines), and Squall, and actually empathized with Xu--but then your trademark kicked in and I could've hated you again.
I could tell from the start that Eden was going to run through everything, yet I still like how you made it the cause, solution to and then once again the cause of everything. The imagery surrounding junctioning is ever-intense and teeth-grinding. Also, props on a unique and really creepy villain, something I hadn't found in ages. I see you're still prodding at the "dark" side of humanity in your writing--good thing you always manage to keep it fresh and crazy.
I should know better by now than to get emotionally invested in a DKfic, but I ended up whooping obscenities at every wrong turn. You write the best bloody tragedies FF8 will ever know.
(#) RaceUlfson 2007-02-25 08:24:25 PMThat was brilliant. I have read your work before and it always leaves me speechless. The way the story evolved, Talon and Seifer and Xu... awesome. You balanced the horror and the storytelling and the pathos perfectly.
and you snuck in a shaggy dog! You rock.
