Masks and moonlit conversation.
(#) Evey 2007-07-16 03:01:06 AMMan, dealing with Scipio and Prosper's post-story physical age gap is always a difficult matter, but I think you dealt with it quite believeably. There is awkwardness between them alright, but I like how Prosper has obviously given it a lot of thought instead of fumbling his way in (as evident by the masks and his knowledge about Scipio's habits), which shows his maturity.
he's grown up too, more than I have, but even that was how it had always been.
I also particularly like this line, as it nicely bridges the gap between Prosper and Scip. g
Author's responseAw, thanks, Evey. g After re-reading the book, it hit me just how much Scipio strains to counterfeit maturity--and how much he depends on Prosper for reassurance--so I'm glad you liked that line.
- I've been trying to write a decent review for this for about half an hour, but really, I can't come up with much other than that I love it. The story flows so beautifully, and the setting is just... wonderful.
I can't stop gushing praise in my mind, so I'll stop trying to write this review before I hurt myself.
...But, gah! It's just so lovely.
Author's responseHa, wow. XD I kind of coast on the assumption that I'm writing into a vacuum, so a review like this is a welcome surprise. Thanks.
- I've read a lot of Thief Lord fics on other sites, but this is deffinately one of the better ones that I've read. You more or less nailed the relationship between the two boys after the end of the book/movie. I like how the conversation went from lightheartedly joking around to serious and tense. You really captured a lot about the effect of Scipio's change in few words. As far as concrit, all I can really say is that not much happened towards the beginning. It might just be my minuscule attention span at 1:30 in the morning, but it didn't hold my attention and I was ready to turn back. I'm glad I stuck with it, though, because it deffinately picked up. Great job!
- This is amazing, and I hope you continue it. If it was meant as a one-shot, then it sure caught my attention. Please write more.
The Theif Lord has been a favorite of mine since fourth grade, and this is the best fanfic I've ever read on it. Keep it up!
(#) ArtemisBlack13 2011-01-10 01:58:49 PMI really enjoyed this. It was sweet, sentimental, and really seemed to capture the essence of the two boys' personalities and relationship. I especially liked the line he's grown up too, more than I have, but even that was how it had always been because it was something I'd always thought about Scipio and Prosper. Overall, a great story which I loved and is very well written. Please write more.
