|Reviews for Predator|
| Sarah Spafford chapter 24 . 4/20/2013
I started reading this when you started to write it. I stopped awhile after the long breaks between updates, figuring you'd finish it eventually, and I was right. I started reading it all over again a couple days ago, staying up for hours on end, reading during down times at work, and I finally finished what you finally finished. I was confused a lot in the beginning, scrambling to figure out what was going to happen before it happened, set on edge by the dynamic among all of the characters. At first, I was very pro Scythe and Angela, but after a while, that dynamic changed too. Cancer was a hard pill for me to swallow. It became obvious quickly that he was in control, manipulating everyone. The ending wasn't a happy one for me, it was actually more of a resigned acceptance after everything had happened. The deaths of the twins was something I actually hated, because as horrible as they were, I was attached. Angela was selfish, it was her fatal flaw. She was so far from perfect it hurt at times watching her struggle to maintain the relationships she had. Despite knowing that, I wanted her to be able to succeed, I wanted her to be able to figure out what was going on around her. When she did, it was too late. The Cancer had spread. It had consumed them all, including her. Atonement. The end was a sad atonement for what had happened so many years before with Eleanor, a forced, unnecessary, yet completely necessary atonement. This story will always be one of my favorites.

I still don't get much of the story... But I'm what I do get is that this story got me hooked right from the start.
I like the how your story made me THINK. Not a lot of stories are as complicatedly fine as yours. It a work of art. During the last three chapters the tension was just so high. The pressure to WANT to know what happened and how each one of the characters are related in a way just ate me up.
This story deserves an award for being so outstanding.
My review on the characters(not all of them though):
Angela: At first I thought she was just an obsessed girl who will fall in love with her swearing childhood best friend. But as the plot thickens, she's proved herself to be as complex as she can be. Then she meets Cancer eight years later and I really thought there was going to be some kind of love triangle but, again, you proved me wrong. All in all I felt annoyed that Angela wanted nothing to do with Scythe and she just wants to run away from her problems or just ignore them.
Scythe: He is a misunderstood boy who feels lonely and rejected. He questions why God, Angela's God, punished him for something he did not do. That's why he felt the NEED to EARN his punisment. Maybe he wants God to feel that He punished HIM. Maybe... That's what I think anyways. In the end, he finally shows what he is really feeling -deep inside inside- what has been gnawing at his guts for YEARS. I also think that Bones is just too horrid of a game.
Rayth: He's the twisted brother who loves his brother so much and tries to protect him no matter what. He is the wise one, the one who knows the strings attached and the person who pulls them.
Lynn: I don't know why but I just hate her. I know, I can be pretty mean. She just had to be nosy and screw up another person's business. She didn't know what she had gotten herself into and she just died in the end. Bye bye person who went neck deep into another person's problem.
Pippa: She was annoying too; although, not as annoying as Lynn was.
Cancer: The stringmaster, the mastermind, the host... The Predator. Yeah, he is not my favorite character but he sure did make an impact on me. He's just, well, complicated and evil as hell itself. What did he really want though? It was revenge, right? Well, he got it and the opera he orchestrated was a big hit! He's a genius! Playing like a playboy but a well goddamned hunter when needed.
Do I even need to tell that your story rocked? I do? Okay then. You know... Your story freaking rocked my world and I spent the whole day reading it. Sure, it made me REALLY confused, but those confused emotions that tortured me were worth it. I am going to recommend this to my friends.
Stay smart and wise ;)

Okay, I have put myself together now. Maybe the fact that I read this story at the dead of the night made me more speechless then I already was. You have such an amazing talent! I mean you really pulled me into this story. My neck ached from looking down and reading the story, eyes were itching at the bright screen. I really loved it. Like I said in my past review; I have tons of questions, but I'm not going to bombard you with then. Just a few though, why did Mr. Butcher only take Scythe away from his birthday party?
Also, what exactly is Cancer going to do with Angela? Is his feelings for her pure and true?
Why did Cancer take a sudden interest in Scythe and his brother? It clearly says that Cancer only wants to repay for what the Butcher family has given his family, but it's more than that isn't it? Or am I just thinking beyond this story?
Thank you for letting me reading this adventure. It was a beautiful, evil, twisted story.

wow, just how. I mean the darkness of it all. It's just so..ah! I am a loss for words right now! Really, usually I'm great at giving reviews to great stories, but I'm just speechless. Don't worry it's a good speechless. I have a few questions though, but I'll only settle for one right now. What inspired you to write this story?

i like it, but i think there are a few issues with angels character, for one she want rayth to sin in her place. thats very selfish. i under the impression she is religious and if thats so that would mean she trying to damn their souls. further more in the bible it says more or less that think a sin is like committing the sin. but instead of acting out the sin you have sinned in your heart. I 'm not sure about all the dynamics of your story i just thought you might want to take this into consideration.
