Le sigh. Nothing against Morden, but you could do better, Rik!
I wouldn't say it was certain, but this pairing was one I've seen as likely. It's been clear for a while now that Lionel would either be with Simon or Morden. Simon has had a lot of focus for a while now; there have also been a few little references here and there hinting toward him being with Lionel. Despite all that, Morden has always been a strong contender because he was the first one introduced. Taking all that into account, it made sense that Rik would probably be with whoever didn't go with Lionel. Since Rik and Morden got together first, though, it's a pretty safe bet who's ending Lionel will get. Of course, I suppose there is another option. Dare I say it, harem ending?
The part with Lionel and Rik was a little confusing to me. What exactly was Lionel angry about and why did Rik need to apologize? I get that Lionel is in many ways the center of the group, but how does that make it so that everyone needs to check up with him about all aspects of their lives? This wasn't some big conspiracy that was being covered up, it was a private circumstance between two autonomous people. It would be understandable if it was just a small pettiness of Lionel's; people tend to act weird about romantic issues, even when they aren't directly involved. That fact that Rik went along with it gave it it validation, as if to say, "Hey, this is a perfectly acceptable and correct way for a person to act."
Again, I don't have a problem with Lionel acting that way, exactly. A few small flaws here and there could actually do his character good, overall. It's that the universe treats him as being in the right that I find strange.
Definitely looking forward to the conversation with Judith. She always has such interesting things to say! There are such a wide range of topics it could be about, I don't know where to start. No matter how it goes, it will surely be good read. Can't wait for it!

pAIRINGS?! PaiRINGS! I am so exited whoop! Okay, I have to admit I suspected rik and dear little mordy around three chapters ago but, hey, bromance works in weird ways so I wasn't sure. Lionel and Simon (so CUTE!) I didn't consider at all until my friend (I got her into the story and now she loves it to death)(her URL is something about warriors and their brave hearts or something along those lines) said she thought they went well together and I'm just like "CRAP! THEY DO!" And so yeah this chapter was great Lionel deserves a break. He did super good I'm so proud.

Eh, I'm not sure how to explain, but they did seem to fit the "bickering couple" routine. I'm very curious as to how they're gonna act after they sort their things out.
I'm still wondering if LionelxSimon is platonic?
| Vallucast chapter 82 . 1/31/2014
I knew it since simon being all cosmogirl! And that lionel getting closer to simon.. I'm waiting the next hint tehehe
| SilverRed chapter 82 . 1/31/2014
I hoped for this back before Rik was even in the story :D. I hoped it would be SimonxLionel since I started reading back when this story was 13 chapters long and I've heard about the whole "Boy pulls Girl's pigtails to get Girl to pay attention to Boy," and Rik and Morden have been paying a lot of attention to each other, so I think i did call it earlier. JudithxLuke was/is kinda obvious since Judith was introduced.
Also, in writing this review I've come to the conclusion that you are Excellent with names. My first few stories had very ... similar names - most of the main characters names stared with the letter K (Kin, Kale, Killian, etc).
In anticipation for the next bit, I'm guessing that the Hunters that Judith works with will get involved and Lionel and Co. will have to prove that they, A) know what they're doing and B) Are not a threat to anyone, with a few big characters believing them and the obligatory racist asshole/ father-of-murdered-family who wants to kill Morden, Simon, and Rik simply because they are what they are. Possible twists include Lionel's mother being one of the Hunters (hence why she travels so much) and the Hunters being convinced to help get the evil Amulet off of Mama and Hespet somehow framing Morden for some deaths resulting in Rik saving he day and fair vampire's heart. :D
Also I am thinking of doing some Fan Art with the characters from the story, I'm asking if that would be ok and would you like to see them when they are done?
Next Friday cannot come sooner, SilverRed. :D

I loved this chapter! I'd been feeling a Rik/Morden pairing for some time, but Simon/Lionel I did not see coming at all!
| SmileyfaceGurl chapter 82 . 1/31/2014
I saw it a mile away. Like when Rick was first introduced. That long ago. It was confirmed when Simon and Morden were stuck in their house and Simon was all 'Morden's Ideal guy is Funny but serious when he has to be' (Something like that) and my first thought was Rick. It was just meant to be. To be honest, if they weren't together by the end of this story I would have just...died. You have saved my life. Thank you.
