Tirithedain chapter 11 . 7/13/2009
As a fan of Norse mythology, especially the story of Fenris, I enjoyed this story immensly. I'm slightly dissapointed that you didn't go with the betrayal aspect that I saw in the original legends, or with the legends where Tyr raised Fenris, but it was still a very good read. Thank you for this excellent story.
Cheyenne Kai chapter 2 . 1/26/2005
"I had come close to singing my nose in his hearth fore. I had by then burst into tears, and a stood there" not sure if 'singing' was the right word. Also 'a' should be 'I' Can't stop reading this...
Cheyenne Kai chapter 1 . 1/26/2005
*looks around for something to criticise* Nothing! not even a typo. Well written, and keeps the readers interest to the end. *goes to read the next chapter*
Ravenspear chapter 11 . 8/17/2004
It's over...? *cries* Why do good things have to end? *sniffle*
Anyways. It's an awesome piece of work. I loved it, and it'll probably remain a favorite of mine for a long time. :)
LordK chapter 11 . 4/25/2004
Wow... that was ever sadder... powerful, powerful writing. Incredible. That was... it's hard to put into words, which you did. Amazing! Poor, poor Fenrir! You wrote Loki incredible too. He was great. I loved this story, and I'm sad to see it go, but I know there's another one! Oh, and that ending... pure brilliance. Classic. Poingnant, kind of like the end of LotR movies 1 and 2. Wow. Incredible, wonderful. This is one of the best stories I've ever read. Amazing ending. Great story.
LordK chapter 10 . 4/25/2004
Wow... that was pretty moving, you know. Sad... I feel so sorry for Fenris. Once again, Balder and Tyr are AMAZINGLY written. You do an incredible job with them. I liked the description of Fenrir biting Tyr's hand. Wonderful. I can't wait until the next chapter!
Amy Keeley chapter 11 . 4/25/2004
Darn. I was hoping you'd have a cool twist since Loki was the one who commissioned Gleipner (under threat from the Aesir). Still good, though. Glad you wrote it. I love the final sentence. Very nice. (P.S. do not insert twist now that I've mentioned it. The plot is good, very good. I like it.) Looking forward to your tale of Loki's downfall.
Amy Keeley chapter 9 . 4/25/2004
Chap 7 - nice dialogue between Loki and Odin. I like the way you've portrayed their relationship.
Chap 8 - interesting. Didn't like Balder's dialogue at the beginning, but it worked out well by the time he was talking to Fenris.
Chap 9 - good.
Chap 10 - Nice characterization. Dialogue's still very good. I love your description of the moment Fenris bites off Tyr's hand.
On the other side: some of the sentences sound a little awkward. Example: "...as much as I felt for my sister, my love for her was, like that for the Aesir, an irrational one without being able to stand her attached...". "[S]tand her attached" is what specifically felt weird.
Overall though, fantastic.
Amy Keeley chapter 6 . 4/25/2004
I really like this chapter. Felt I should give it its own review. The dialogue is good; sucks me right in. Description's very nice. I like the way you portray the characters, especially the increasing bitterness of Fenris.
Amy Keeley chapter 5 . 4/25/2004
Read Chap 3. It flows better now with the rest of the chapters. I like it very much. Hope you like it as well...you are the author.
So far, I like the way this is going.
Hacker Of Reality chapter 11 . 4/24/2004
I liked... the end was kinda nice... its interesting to see a story that actually ended too b/c most writers just keep going and going on and on... its so tragic, and as ive said before, the emotion, and the empathetic link btwn. the reader and Fenris is just so great... anyway, my thoughts are in too many directions... so I'm gonna close by saying I really liked it... keep writing
Deluminated chapter 9 . 4/7/2004
Let me just say that I love this story so far. The condition at the end, the seven impossible materials, everything. You have a few errors, capitalization of "Fenris" once, and some trouble with "I," and "me," and also with "he," and "him." Nothing that can't be fixed. This is awesome.
Deluminated chapter 7 . 4/7/2004
A few typos, like "ggrowling" and "a;ways", but still an awesome story. I'm enjoying it. And I love the cynicism with Loki, as well as the friendship kind of relationship he has with Fenris, then goes and stands up for him. Nice.
Deluminated chapter 4 . 4/7/2004
I love the betrayal. Hate to say it, but it's a weakness of mine. I'm resisting the urge to write it into my story until just the right time...Thanks for your review on the first chapter, by the way.
Deluminated chapter 1 . 4/6/2004
Wow...I really like the beginning of this. Love the mythology. ::semi-choke:: Nice job. I heard about you from LordK, and decided I'd come check it out. I'm glad I did. I wrote a myth of my own, completely fabricated, though, whereas yours uses old concepts in an awesome way. Some places you need to think about word differentiation, though, like here: "...growing guard hairs where there had once been down, and growing"
The word "growing" can be substituted for some other word or phrase, methinks. Anyway, that happens a few times, but it's nothing horribly detrimental. I love this story so far, and when I have time I'll come back to finish it.
