Jackass. He deserved to die for that, crazy bastard.
| MagicalInsanity 9/16/12 . chapter 34
Wait, no, you cannot do this! You're just going to end it? Please tell me there's a sequel!
I'm glad we get to see just how overprotective is Xol, I'm glad Arraigo is going to exile, but that still leaves Ricardo to deal with... Vicenzo has to make a comeback, I mean, he has two great-grandchildren, and now that he is being paternal, he might actually do good for his great-grandson. If Arraigo Jr. is sent to exile, is like blaming the son for his father's sin, and if left with Ricardo, he wold simply become a weapon. Doing right by the child would be to leave him with someone close to the royal family, but someone who can groom him well...
In regards to the daijinn culture and humans learning it: humans fight among themselves and it goes beyond cultural and religious differences, so when you add appearances, humans won't necessarily go with good graces, which goes along in hand when it comes to slavery and such. I get it that not humans are like that, but there will also be a need, in order for humans to fully grasp e royal couple's union, in regards to being mates, having a child and such, and even why they see Xol as divine, they will need to learn about daijinn culture and beliefs. Even, if there are humans willing to look past the differences, there will be others quite interested in learning about their culture. It can even bring good changes regarding midwives and doctors as well as any such minor detail that could truly make a difference. Humans are not perfect, neither are daijinns, but together, like Ileana and Xol, they might make great difference, and for that Ileana need to know about daijinns just as Xol knows about humans.
I can imagine a thirteen year old grimacing at others her age, then going to Diego's lab so that they could satisfy their curiosity regarding her birth and heritage, and having a cot for herself, repeating what Diego says and considering going into alchemy... XD
Sorry, thought about sharing.
Any way, great chapter, now people will think twice before trying to mess with Ileana and Xi with Xol present. Another fun fact: Xol cannot carry a child, else Chuachin neighbors decide to attack and they are leaderless... Ah, Xi will have siblings, I'm certain xD

I love when everything works out in the end. Their family unit is so incredibly adorable, and I love that Xol purrs for her daughter just because it amuses Xi. I was a little worried that perhaps Arrigo would get to the alchemist and force him to say that Xi wasn't actually Xol's child. Although Arrigo was desperate, I'm still surprised he could be stupid enough to go after Ileana and Xi, especially with Xol being so close, but in the end he got what he deserved. Too bad Xol was injured in the process though.
Thanks for writing.

I can't tell you how satisfying that was to read. Arrigo burned and broken, couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
| psychotic-cat17 9/13/12 . chapter 33
I kind of like that Ileana gets all forceful and a little bit mean during a month and a half of her pregnancy; someone had to finally tell all those people off that she'd been too polite to do before. I love how Xol is so into Ileana's pregnancy, how she does everything she can to make Ileana more comfortable and stays around her mate as much as possible. The little heir sounds adorable and I can't wait for everyone to see her, and I like the touch of her having the mark of the moon on her already.
Thanks for writing.
| Greek Chorus 9/13/12 . chapter 33
I kinda like Ileana the Terror! (She should channel that persona like a super-hero power.) The baby sounds so cute. Thought I wonder what the deal is with the shamans' bracelet. Can't wait to see what the various reactions are going to be when they introduce their daughter. Thanks!
| onezero 9/10/12 . chapter 33
This is so exciting. It must be evident that the child takes after Xol somewhat, especially if she grows up to be short like Xol. Now I wonder what the council's reactions will be. Will she be called a monster just because she have a daijinn tail? After all, no one will be stupid enough to expect a full human baby from Ileana right?
I love how you always end the chapter. Just enough that I am satisfied and not too much suspense for me to be frustrated that the next chapter is not here yet. Yours is the only story so far that I have been keeping along for so long. Plus the fact that you update on a set day every week helps a lot. Thank you.
| MagicalInsanity 9/10/12 . chapter 33
I'm loving Yan!
Ileana, swearing?! What the hell is happening here ;;
Wait, what if it is twins? One for each race? O.o
Oh my gods!
Awww, and I so wanted the ears, but the tail is cool, xD Awesome that she has a moon on her forehead; I would love for her to be named Jin X3
I am incredibly curious though: is she born blind?
| MagicalInsanity 9/10/12 . chapter 32
Oh wow, you had this all planned if you even went as far as to explain th daijinn pregnancy...
Also, does Ileana wear the bracelet every day?
Xol seems like a child, while the Queen is so mature about things; mainly the love conversation they hold...
The council meeting went much better than I could have expected.
You just made my day x3
I am loving the hormonally challenged Ileana; biting a servant's head off for staring... what a crime...
And that speech made my day; now I fear it'll be harsh, for all the joy I'm taking. I cannot help the glee from the simple maternalistic fact that the Queen outed their child xD
I do admit the problem with the human idiot who spoke near the end enraged he; he would have been killed. But it doesn't ruin the mood x3
It's sad that despite the actions and last speech, everyone will just turn to one thing: pregnant.
| MagicalInsanity 9/10/12 . chapter 31
Hopefully, Xol won't forget her spouse and give them both what they need...
I think you're doing a great injustice for the daijinn; while they have learned about the humans, the humans haven't learned about them. You cannot demand or place them as the only ones learning about the different culture, else more discord is going to happen.
Also, since it's only happening in Basilinar, I think it's safe to assume that there is someone behind it all, but I would like to see where Xol's investigation take her...
Also, I would have guessed that the fact that nothing seem to happen would make them more earnest about their plea and try to work it out as best as possible.
The prayer was intriguing! Is the Chuachin God Zander? Is it another deity? If the God actually answers, wouldn't that mean it's Zander, as he created the humans? Then again, he sounds more like the Fleurizan god...
And the scene in the office? Well! I guess it forms part of their mischevious nature, haven't got into trouble recently, but it seems that their country on their own footsteps... Good thing that they didn't get caught, though it would have been a hilarious scene, xD
Ok, so, is this kid going to have ears and tail? If you do, it becomes completely daijinn mind you, unless you take her claws (two females, if they have a boy then they are to call him Xin, for it would truly be a miracle) and fangs away, which I think are cool to have, at least the claws. Take the tail and fangs, but leave her sense of smell.
I cannot believe I'm even considering it, but I'm loving the prospect of a child as much as all of them...
Woah! Just in case, the main reason why human women carry children for that long is because their body cannot carry the child further! If this rule doesn't apply, then there will be something clearly wrong. Even more so, I think that perhaps the pregnancy should last even less, considering the fact that the daijinn are more dense than humans... BTW: will the child be born with tatts?
Oh wow, now I cannot help but imagine a relation between Lucia and Miss Olga...
Um... I really wish to know this: does Illie's dream are some kind of premonition? After all, when she was a kid she dreamt about being with Rose in a flower field, and a few chapters later (if not the next chapter, can't remember that well) Rose climbed that tree and jumped down with the Princess into a flower field... And I'm awed by the dream, specially the 'blessed moon' part.
| MagicalInsanity 9/10/12 . chapter 30
Wow, that was intense, for lack of a better word...
The ritual is well thought, but there's a feeling of a glitch in it, somewhere, beyond the trick answer of Ha...
| MagicalInsanity 9/10/12 . chapter 29
Wow, that was deep! I like the conversation between the queen and her mother, I just love it.
Is Shei capable of selling poison? Will Viktor receive his own cub when he marries?
Is is just intriguing, my curiosity piqued! I can understand the title, but then again, the is a sensation that there'll be more an this.
I also wanted to know, does this have anything to do with the Dragon Cave? I mean, the future child, because despite all odds, I know they'll have their child.
| MagicalInsanity 9/10/12 . chapter 28
Aww... I find it adorable how the strongest of them all is also the most vulnerable...
I'm wondering: what happen if two male daijinn asked Xin for a child?
I'm not liking the way things are becoming insanely complicated...well, that how they seem to be though it also seems natural...
| MagicalInsanity 9/10/12 . chapter 27
Hmmm, Shei got me thinking, maybe Viktor could be given a guardian? I don't sense any training in defense from him, and obviously Kwen, Yu and Mei cannot be by his side at all time. I really like the way you give her such a special place among the royal pair, specially since she believes that being of assistance to them is the highest job she could have.
This is also something that makes me fond of your writings, they are always sprinkled with lovely details.
I do wonder though, what kind of job those Rai holds?
