I honestly can't believe that you wrote this in three chapters. It was SO GOOD. Well fleshed out and everything. There was so much development, and the future is so uncertain-not many people can do something like that, let me tell you. I loved this. Thanks. For writing it. I'm going to go look desperately for a sequel now.

I love the intricacy of the plot and the way the characters evolve. The word 'cliche' didn't even cross my mind as I read this story. Favorited!

Hi! I'm here to share some news: This story has been added to the Supernatural category over on A Drop of Romeo!

Here's your review:

This SkoW runner-up for best original universe is a very well thought out sci-fi story. Lysa, the Emperor's daughter, is celebrating her seventeenth birthday when a group of rebels attack the palace. In her haste, she runs towards the room containing an instrument named the “Machine” and enters it. What happens next? The impossible happens: she travels back in time. What complicates this matter is that Alexei, a handsome rebel, ends up following her. Following that, one can read an extremely entertaining, albeit slightly confusing story, due to the continuous change in times.

The story is only three chapters long, but Written manages to allow everything to flow so well. The words seem to scrawl across the page effortlessly which allows the story to remain well imprinted in any reader's mind long after they have finished reading. Although the story ends where a story would normally start, this doesn't detract from the quality of the story. Rather, this increases its unique nature. This is definitely one sci-fi story that you’ll never tire of reading over and over (and over) again.

Honestly, I don't like sci-fi that much at all, so I was a bit hesitant to try this, but I'm glad you did! The world you created was so indepth, interesting and real to me that I can see why you got that SKoW award! You definitely deserved it. This was so well-written and you managed to compact quite a lot into a short story without it seeming rushed once. I loved the relationship between Lysa and Alexei, as well as all the bits of political intrigue. However one problem I have is with the ending. Will bere be a sequel? Because I feel like the ending is just cut off, with no conclusion to anything. There are still loose ends everywhere, with the trial, Anker, Alexei, the virus. I would just love to see all of it concluded.
Beautiful story regardless!

This story is so wonderful! I've followed it from its beginning. I'll admit I loved the original opening, where one of the first images the reader saw was the blood-stained birthday banner with little explanation; but I suppose the exposition is necessary, since you're writing a longer version. Your story is incredibly engaging. Usually, when I read adventure stories, especially ones on this site but even published books, I skip around from conflict to conflict, ignoring much of the 'filler'. Your pacing is such that nothing feels irrelevant or slow, however; ever conversation, every description, underscores the underlying tensions. At no point while reading your story did my interest in it begin to wane. Similarly, in fics on this site that have a central romance, the other character relationships almost always seem dull in comparison; not so in "Liberation Girl." You amaze me with your ability to keep every bit of dialogue, every successive scene, full of energy without resorting to gimmicky attacks and fights. You're able to make actions that'd be taken as a matter of course in other fics bursting with emotion; for instance, when Lysandra leaves the classroom after seeing Alexei. I love the way you've drawn your characters, too. It almost seems effortless-Lysandra's insecurities are demonstrated, without seeming overplayed. Her interactions with Anker are particularly interesting; the power dynamic between the two, which will probably shape much of the rest of the story. You are a deeply talented author, and you'd better keep writing.

Whatever gave you the idea your story is boring? This is one of the best stories I found on this site so far. However, the date of the last update is omnious. I hope you will update soon.

Interesting story. I like the characters. I hope you update soon. :)
Cecily Mitchell chapter 3 . 7/22/2010
It's not boring at all. I love sci-fi futuristic stories like this one. And most people tend to steer clear of time traveling. I find your story refreshing and adventurous and I cannot wait to see more of this brave girl Lysandra and her Alexei :)

Peas and carrots to continue?

this is awesome and certainly not boring, and the characters are really likable...

I think your story is absolutely amazing! I usually shy away from science fictions, but this story captured me instantly. At first, I got really confused with the whole time travelling thing (I think I still am lol), but I am very curious to what will happen next. Thank you.
toujoursmoi chapter 3 . 4/27/2010

This is the first time i read this story and i must say it is utterly Captivating.

Have you read 'The Time Travelers Wife' By Any Chance?

You have amazing writing talent and the plot is amazing. I couldnt take my eyes off the screen.

This story is quite short. I think if you tried to do a full legnth story with this plot it will be awsome.

Anyway you have done a great job so far.
