Reviews for The Folly of a Monster Love
Illumined chapter 24 . 5/12/2009
When is Ilias’s history going to be unveiled?

His sadness is getting to me...Especially since I’d thought he’d wouldn’t be as sad in Alma’s presence after the events that took place in the past two chapters. However, the second half of the chapter does show how natural they are in each other’s presence.

I do like the fact that you didn’t show an immediate and miraculous change in Ilias’s disposition.

Anyway, I saw the character pictures. I thought your version of Ilias was perfect, fits your description beautifully. And although Alma was not exactly how I imagined her to be, I’m slowly starting to prefer your Alma over mine. Btw, who are the actors/models/muses who represent Alma and Ilias eh? They look sort of familiar, but I can’t seem to recall where exactly I’ve seen them.

LOL...I know exactly how you feel. It takes me forEVER to update, and in the beginning I vowed that I wouldn't be one of those people who would take a year to update a story.

I just have one thing to say:

"Not reading into it, however, was another matter – such a thing could never be done by a woman."

Abso-freaking-lutely 100% agree. You win.

I was wondering where you had gone too, was going to question it but its not my place to do such a thing, anyways another great chapter, eventful enough with out anything crazy happening which is nice. Down time in a story is always good, though of course craziness will happen sooner or later as always. Illias was sweet in this chapter, well in my opinion, the whole convenience store bit was a nice touch. I like when hes flirty. Anyways its nice to have you back and writing again, good luck with the next chapter...hopefully it wont take too long p.

So I stayed up until 5:00 in the morning reading this story. I was quite taken with it at first. You have a wonderful writing style, an interesting plot, and had relateable characters.

Then you banked a sharp turn into what I like to call Inexplicably-"Justified"-Abuseville, which is visited by a surprising number of authors on this site.

Illias, in the beginning, seemed like a genuinely caring, if creepily possessive guy. Then he started being a jerk the more time Alma spent around him. I could kind of see this. Any two people that don't know each other well will likely have a rocky start to their relationship when forced into close confines. I was still looking forward to seeing their relationship progress then, both on emotional and physical levels. Then, at some point, I started to think that anything other than a sexual relationship was going to be difficult to pull off because they had become so incompatible.

Then came the rape and the threats of violence. There is no justification for either of these, and it just doesn't make sense. It seemed like they were well on their way to mutually consenting sex, so why was it suddenly necessary for him to rape her in order to accomplish this protection? And why would she accept his explanation, or any explanation for such brutality, with an "Oh, okay. Come to bed with me?"

I don't want these two to get together anymore now. I want poor Alma to find a way out of this on her own and never have to see Illias again.

This story would still be good if the intention was to realistically follow the deterioration of what was a potentially promising relationship. Maybe that is your intention. But to be honest, I feel cheated that I spent all this time reading this after finding it in the romance category, because this isn't romance. You could call it drama or horror instead and have it be more appropriate.

Really, I'm not trying to be down on you. You really are a great writer; I just don't understand some of your choices. Please don't take this as a flame. If I hadn't become so invested in this story, I wouldn't have spent this time writing this review. Unfortunately, I'm afraid this chapter will have to be the end of the line for me, but I wish you the best of luck in finishing off this story.

Good God I love you...In a non-stocker way i promise. I just love your imagery, the way you mold the words to fit your world is just divine. Also, happy late birthday!

But, even though that it is 23 chapters long and, I sense that we still have a lot of reading on Alma and Illias, it feels right. It isnt like other stories, that goes in circles and in the end you dont know which way is up or down. So keep going, I will keep reading, trust me, at the moment you are giving me my moment of peace, because my brain is just to fried to think straight. The moment this story ends I think I'm going to cry so I'm going to enjoy it while it last...

Loved Almas perspective and how she shapes her most recent epiphany. She is the damsel in distress but she is willing to rise above it and fight...

Okay longes review

Briana Banana chapter 22 . 4/19/2009
I'm back finally... Man i still dont know why I chose Medicine but i love it...Anyways even though its just a filler i love this chapter the most. It shows the vulnerable side to Illas. He isnt just a demon/human thing, but, a person with feelings that can get hurt. You stubtly changed our view of him to that of any other person, you humanized him for us... Okay going to read the next chapter cuz I'm dieing to know what is going to happen...See u in a bit
