|Reviews for Last Fighter, Last Heart|
| Danielle Pokorny chapter 8 . 12/1/2015
I'm so glad that I decided to sit down and read this because I just absolutely love the historical setting and the diverse group of characters. I think my favorite so far is Andreas. It's fascinating how he's the most deceptive yet, at the same time, the most honest character. Okay, maybe not as much "honest" as much as "politely blunt". Is that a better description? His attraction is also pretty interesting, and while I would like to say what I think their relationship is developing into, I don't know enough about the magical aspect of the world they live in.
Marcos is my other favorite. For some odd reason or another, there was just something about him from the start that just drew me to him. I would say it's because he a lot more likable than Sabas, who seems to hilariously annoy the other characters, but I'm not sure if that would really explain it. Who knows.
I get kind of frustrated with Julian at times, though I do sympathize with him because he only knows what he's been taught and is afraid of hurting/corrupting Stefan, especially when he's the only one really bothered by it, except for maybe Sera. Hopefully now that Stefan's taken the lead in the relationship Julian will be able to move past the shame he feels towards the whole situation, and without the help of alcohol. Hopefully.

Arethusa Cyberia told me that you were good and that I should read your stories. She wasn't kidding. You ARE good, and I am looking forward to reading more of this story. It's wonderful!

I really enjoyed reading this story. It was both sexy and romantic. When I read the description for the story I thought it was going to be about magical shapeshifting dragons giving their hearts to humans and then being bound to these humans. As well these humans being bound to the dragons who's hearts they had been given. However this was just as good. Is there more? What about Andreas and Sera? What about the two Romans and that negress slave girl the one Roman had helped out?

Fascinating story. Really cool concept. Sera is awesome and things are developing nicely between her and her Greek. I would so like to see this continued. Pretty prease! *pouty lip*

Hmm, shall I add my voice to hers then? I can do some guilt trips too- finishing what you started, etc. etc. :)

This story's awesome! I am loving it to bits! I am sad that it's not been updated in forever, but I know how it goes. I AM very happy though that we at least got to see some Julian/Stefan action this chapter though! :) Great job.

You're pretty well suited for the out of the ordinary fantasy stories :) or the out of the ordinary realistic stories for that matter. Or just any out of the ordinary stories, haha. Can you tell I like you're stuff yet? Cause I do :P
| WitheredWings chapter 6 . 5/22/2010
I think this seriously is a good mix of plot and Slash. i love the world you created, with romans, greeks, etcetera. Also, the way Julian is around Stefan... you described how they both felt so well! chapeau!

All the Fighters, and all the Hearts, and even all the Seekers, so that even if a new Heart were (was) to be born somewhere, he or she could never be found.
They'd all come to to celebrate the coming Joining, when the newest trainees were due to finally join with their Hearts, thus becoming full-fleged (fledged) dragon-Fighters for the first time.
But Sera – now a Constable of the town of Nicopole (suggestion: Nikopol) - was used to that, and (concentrated on looking for) the Heart.
It would have been absolute doom for a normal person, or even for a Fighter who was trained but still unJoined (suggestion: not Joined).
The average dragon stood on it's (its) two legs about seven feet tall, and a third of that was nothing but neck.
There was just no way she cold (could) protect her Heart from a pod on the ground and a pod in the air at the same time.
Like (suggestion: As) any Fighter in that situation, she'd desperately wanted to kill herself, but couldn't – because even if he was dead, her Heart wouldn't want her too (to) (suggestion: to die). The bond was that strong.
As she wandered through the crowded inn, (letting) her feelings guide her, she realized something else – this Heart had already given it away.
(Way too young) to have already (suggestion: eliminate "already". not needed in this sentence) offered his Heart to a Fighter.
The Priests would never Join a Fighter to a 14 year old (kid)!
“Don't (wanna) talk about it,” she answered curtly, putting an end to his questioning about that, “So, Stefan – where's your Fighter? I don't (see her around). And anyway – (aren't you a little young) to be Joined?”
“I... we didn't... (I mean)...” he stammered, obviously fighting for time to pick his words,.“My Fighter's dead.”
“(Yeah). There were... (a lot of them. We got away) – but a couple of pods saw us...” Stefan let the words trickle down to silence. He'd (almost messed up already), and didn't feel safe talking (suggestion: to her).
“So she had to either accept your heart, (Accept your Heart?) or die, is that it? (suggestion: , yes?) How old is –“(”) Sera corrected herself, still playing along with the boy's lie, “(I mean), how old was she? Had she finished the training?”
“I... my Fighter was...” he struggled for the right words, bu (but) then just blurted out, “I'm NOT ashamed...”
“Stefan... listen – you can stop lying to me about her...” (her.”) She noticed how Stefan winced subtly as she spoke, which was curious, but (she went on anyway), “I already know that she's-”
Still working on this. :) I’m enjoying the story thus far, but wondering if perhaps you might “rethink” some of your characters' thoughts and dialogue. You don’t want your fantasy world to sound too much like modern day Earth, so you would avoid common “Earth sayings” or slang. Just a thought.

Julian and Stefan are very sexy together, yes. That's my first thought. But yeah. They're super sexy but I'm not really feeling the depth of their emotion in this chapter. I love it! Don't get me wrong. I love it and I think you're an amazing writer, but just the end of this chapter seemed like the sex was just for sex. Maybe I missed the big point, but it seemed like... yeah... sex for sex.
I have no idea if I ever reviewed for your other chapters, and if I didn't, I'm sorry. I really like your characters are the whole setup, you know? It's not unique in that whole 'omg i never heard of this sorta stuff' way, but it's unique in how you portray it. The emphasis is different than how I usually see it being done.
I love the 'thing' going on between Andreas and Sera. It's hearbreaking, truthfully. They're not young and fated like the other two, so it's like a contrast. I'm juxtaposing them in my mind right now and it's like they have less passion but not any less emotion present. Get it or am I just rambling? Haha. I think I'm rambling. I'll stop.

And I remember bugging you so much to complete the next chapter, and look who's late to the review table? It was definitely worth it to wit so long - they'll getting underway, and Julian and Stefan just...went at it. It was a short chapter, but I figure, once you're back in the groove, it'll only keep getting bigger.
| Zyril chapter 8 . 9/5/2009
First off, YAY update! Second, this chapter was absolutely stellar! I love all the characters! _ And that last scene...hurray for Stefan and Julian getting what they've been wanting! That was hot! :D Keep up that awesome writing! _ I look forward to the next chapter!
| Orio K chapter 7 . 6/14/2009
I was about half way through this when I realized you were the author. I actually said "figures." I'm supposed to be studying for finals...but I got addicted to another one of your fics. *sigh*
Stefan is the cutest thing ever! And I loved the Romans. They're those friends everyone has that you just can't manage to dislike, no matter how much they annoy you.
| Isamara chapter 7 . 5/16/2009
Hehe! Go Stefan!
LOve the sotry so far, please keep writing!
