|Reviews for The Porcelain Murderer|
| EternallyNostalgic 8/11/12 . chapter 1
I've been reading this for several months, thought I should leave a review after all of this time. x_x; The first chapter is really suspensefull, and it really pulled me in to read more. I've since read every chapter. The idea of a murderer that replaces the victims with dolls fascinates me. XD And I really like all the developments. I'm not sure what to think of Apollo, he's creepy. I was a little dissapointed that the story changed from a town with a psycho to a teen romantic drama between Tommy and Rio, but the last couple chapters have certainly made up for what I was waiting for - and I must say, you write horror scenes very well. It was a mistake to read those chapters at two am, never doing that again! XD; And I don't mean to say that I didn't like all the Tommy/Rio stuff, I was just expecting more about the murderer. It is very interesting to watch the two teens develop while the kidnapping is going on. I just wish they'd stop fighting, it's silly, they keep getting angry over the same thing. I think that makes them feel very real as characters, they are very well-developed characters. Kudos, and I look forward to reading more..

Ohmigosh you're aliiiiivvveeee :D *hugs*
Tommy please stop screwing things up. You're making me very sad. All I want is for you and Rio to be happy together and go be adorable and meet Katelyn and Ryan and have lots of mind scarring adventures that eventually end in something better for you guys.
IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK
you guys are breaking my heart omg
THANK YOU FOR BEING ALIVE. :'D
And thanks for updating, chica! Please do so again soon! Or work on Maniac. Or both! :D

Sometimes I think Thomas and Rio both have the same weird kind of mental disorder. Like, one minutes they're best friends forever, and then Thomas is like '8D you're crazy god doesn't exist' and then Rio's just like 'omg i hope you die' and so they fight and it's sad. But it gives them character so I assume it's okay.
I really like this chapter but whenever you talk about Thomas almost dying I get really upset because he is a great person and I love him. Also, I think some day you should write a scene of Thomas and what happened to him because I'd be really interested in reading it also I think you could make it super sad and you have super awesome sad writing. :3
This was a good chapter, as I've mentioned numerous times. O.o But I hate the tense feeling my tummy gets when Rio and Tommy fight because it makes me sad. I can't wait to meet Theta I am a happy and jolly human being.
THIS WAS LOVELY UPDATE TOMORROW OR KNOW I AM JUDGING YOU.

No little girl, don't go with him...(keeps reading)

It occurs to me that I'm signed in on the wrong account but I'm sending this from my phone so it is something you're going to have to get past. :')
This chapter was awesome! I really loved it an how you changed everything. I think it's great that Rio found out before everything goes down, and whilst this is awkward for Thomas either way I think this might be a little less hard for him than having to say he's gay and that he loves Rio at the same time. I think it gets one thing over with for Tom before he has to be all "Also I love you.". I wishe sometimes that that'd been how it worked out for me, but you and I both know that I killed two birds with one stone the night we started dating! XD
Anyway, I love Thomas's backstory. How he was suicidal and how he handles his dad's death really give depth to him as a character and it absolutely amazes me how real your characters are. I'm so proud of you for having that talent and knowing how to use it well!
The thing about Rio having only seen Thomas cry twice actually made me tear up last night, not gonna lie. I can't even think about it without my heart hurting. It was a really good touch. Also, WHEN RIO ASKED IF HE WAS GAY
AND TOMMY TOLD HIM
THAT MADE MY LIFE.
Because they're really cute together and I lie them and I can't believe how amazing and accepting Rio was about it. It was a beautiful display of friendship between them and it made the chapter that much more amazing. Also, when Tom was saying "I don't want to be gay" it broke my heart because no one should have to feel that way.
You know how to hit me where it hurts, you know that?
Regardless of everything I've been bumbling on about, this chapter was amazing and I can't wait fr you to update!
Also get online because I miss you :c

Ffff why are they so cute? :'D Awww, little Tommy thought he was a thief for ripping a page out of a book *heart*
They're so adorbs. I'm very glad they made up.
Also, I may have grinned, threw my arms up, and whisper-shouted "FORESHADOWING" at the appropriate moment. (I'd've properly shouted it, but my family already thinks I'm a bit loony.)
DUDE. I love this new (is it? I think it's new.) bit about Rio figuring out that Thomas is gay on his own, before all the shit goes down. Plus it lets them be so frickin' CUTE. Omg.
Also, I'm quite glad that you put Allaphon above the Arctic Circle before asserting that there were times with no sunlight. Because below it, we do have some sunlight, but it's generally only a few hours. (Of course, the inverse is also true. During the summer, we all joke that the sun never actually goes down, it just sort of derps around on the horizon. Rio would probably like the summer.)
I'm so used to the "weird" weather that "normal" weather kind of freaks me out. Like, I don't understand how it can be dark and hot at the same time. It really confuses me. Or not having snow in October. XD *shot*
ANYWAY. Talking about myself in a review, shame shame. But RIOMAS IS SO CUTE AND I LOVE IT FOREVER.
Thanks for updating, chica! It made my day. :D Please update again soon!
| graphiteXVII 6/13/12 . chapter 11
These reviewers of yours are mouthing what I know not.
Please update again. Chills too! xD
| Shade the Viridescent 6/13/12 . chapter 11
Ffff, I got so ridiculously excited when the Devil showed up. Like, I'm pretty sure if I weren't so excited, I'd be really freaking out (again) and worrying about Rio. And I am, because the poor boy.
The bit with Thomas and Cecilia was so adorable Seriously, I was d'awwing for the whole ending bit. (Also, I know why she went silent about Kozonush :D I feel so special)
Anyway. HELLS YES I AM SO EXCITED FOR THE SHENANIGANS TO COME. CAN YOU TELL I AM EXCITED? BECAUSE I REMEMBER THIS BIT, or the version of this bit that existed, and I LOVED IT SO MUCH.
Also, can I just say that I really like the revised version of Rio ending up in Hell? It's so much lonelier and heartbreaking, because he's all alone and in the cold and he thinks he's alienated Thomas and I'm telling you things you prolly already know, but KUDOS on this change, I like this much better than the well (Not that I didn't love the well, but this just feels so much...more. I HAVE LOTS OF FEELS, OK?)
Thanks for updating, chica! You'd best do so again soon, or I will...be very upset. You'll just be going along, living your non-updating life, and suddenly you'll just feel a judging and upset and disappointed teary-eyed gaze on you, and you'll turn around and there will be NO ONE THERE because it will be me. Even though I haven't a clue where you actually are, and it's probably really far from where I am.
So you'd best update soon! :D

Sometimes I don't feel like I tell you often enough that you're an amazing writer. But seriously. You're at Markus Zusak level, love.
This chapter was so good! Like, you blew me away. For someone who said they were puking up words and had no muse, this was a phenomenal chapter! It was sad, but I liked the interaction between Cecelia and Thomas because I love them super much. Also, it kills be every time Cecelia says "I knew you'd bat for the other team" x3.
The scene with the Devil was FLAWLESS. Sometimes I wish I'd finished the script so I could have put this in because the whole scene played like a movie scene in my head.
And the best part of the whole thing? Spanish Hail Mary and the 'Amen' at the end.
I GOT CHILLS, MAN. CHILLS.
now update again. :C
| Just Another Lonely Girl 6/13/12 . chapter 10
For your information, I was not laughing on Skype last night. I was crying tears of sadness and grimacing sadly.
WHY DO THEY DO THESE THINGS TO MY EMOTIONS, KAITLIN LOVELACE? WHY DO THEY HURT MY HEART SO?
It started out so lovely, too. They were all happy and frolicking and smiling and Thomas loves him so much and I just love them so much and asdfghkl why do we have to wait for Sweet Dreams to end to see them kisssssss
WHEN RIO WAS LIKE "IF YOU HAD OFFED YOURSELF"
MY FUCKING HEART
DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE EMOTIONAL DISTRESS I AM UNDER?
I WANT TO DIE OF SADNESS.
this is has been a review of my feelings.
UPDATE NOW OR I'LL CRY.
also, it's almost tomorrow. :C
| Shade the Viridescent 6/12/12 . chapter 10
...oohhh my heart...
Seriously, it felt like I'd been punched as soon as Thomas said the bit about Rio's mom, and then it just got worse. I might have actually whimpered when Rio called Tommy a murderer. And I may have been holding my breath the whole scene because NO WHY ARE YOU TWO DOING THIS WHAT ARE YOU DOING.
Stoppiiittttttt you're gonna make my crryyyyy... TT_TT Tears forever, man. Tears forever. Also, I think FP is getting rid of multiple letters again, so about half the intent behind this message is gonna get lost in proper spelling. DX
You should post the rest tomorrow because then I'll be able to relax again. /selfish
Thanks for updating, chica, even if it was to TOTALLY BREAK MY HEART. Please do so again soon, so Tommy and Rio can fix it!
| Just Another Lonely Girl 6/1/12 . chapter 9
This chapter hurt my soul and stung the disturbing part of my brain because it was really scary and now I'm scared to go to sleep hold me?
the eyeball part scared me most. :c
Also, I feel really really bad for Kozonush and I don't know why people didn't like him because he and I are bros. You know that? Bros.
Seriously though this chapter absolutely terrified me. Dx
Also, your author's note is truth. You are so cool B[
Update more or else okay? :C
| Shade the Viridescent 5/29/12 . chapter 9
Wow, Itli! You actually updated within a month! You're so cool!
Anyway. Holy cheezits, shit just got real. Seriously. That was so wonderfully, delightfully creepy, man. Like, honestly, shivers down my spine, and I actually started breathing faster and my heart rate picked up because that shit was terrifying, yo. For cereal.
And seriously. Poor Kozonush, man. This edited version of the story makes him so much more tragic than the other one did (where I seriously hated him right up until the end, where I felt really bad about it). I love it.
And with everything, you're doing a fantastic job of including the reader in the guilt. (Perhaps I have seen/analyzed too much Hitchcock, because now I'm super sensitive to audience implication.) But really, with the whole having the point of view being the mutilator, and then being identified/sympathizing with Kozonush... Damn, girl, you're really good at horror. *applauds*
Oh god this is a long review. Haven't written one this long in ages. But you have a chapter of the other story up, so I'm gonna wrap this up and go read/review that :D
You're moving? :O How exciting Have fun! :D
Thanks for updating, chica Please do so again soon, and keep bringing the creepy (Or go back to Riomas fluff. Really, I'm good either way. XD *shot*)
| Shade the Viridescent 5/16/12 . chapter 8
Omg, they're so cute :3 I love watching this relationship develop all over again, because everything is so sweet and adorable and I just kind of love it all. C':
Gah. I'm still feeling the vestiges of my previous hatred of Kozonush. Like, I don't actually hate him right now, but he's just so creepy! D: (Good job on that, btw.)
And the throw-away line about having an argument with his cat? GENIUS. I actually grinned at my computer when I saw that, and was like, "Ahaha I see what you did there." C:
Anyway, thanks for updating, chica Please do so again soon!
| graphiteXVII 5/16/12 . chapter 6
Another real good chapter!
Sorry for taking too long, it's been summer in here.
I'll be reading - as always! :)
