Noo! :'( I can't believe you haven't touched this story in so long! Well, considering I have just now finished chapter thirty three, I'm going to try my best to muster up enough words describe how much I absolutely. adore. this. story..
Your writing is so incredible and I do not think I'll be able to get over how 3-Dimensional these characters really are, because it is so difficult to find a story where every scene that takes place actually goes into account of how and why the characters have found them selves to be in at the places they are. As opposed to other stories where you just don't get any sense of how or why the characters act the way they do. Rowan seems so real at some points I actually think that I could reach out and touch him haha. I don't think that I could even begin to describe my love for all of the other characters that make up this incredibly charming story:) Since there aren't enough words to describe my pure obsession for this lovely story and the way it is written so lyrically, I am going to have to just hope that you won't forget about this story and hopefully one day continue it. I understand that your busy (I really do) but, I cannot refrain from being a bit selfish and wish that you would write chapter 34 riiight now. Uh oh I think might be rubbing off of Rowan ... Damn Rowan getting into people's heads.
don't forget about those people who have fallen victim to Rowan's disease, only wanting more of him hehe:D

I CANNOT EVEN BELIEVE THIS HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED IN ABOUT A TRILLION YEARS HOW CAN THIS BE THIS STORY IS SO PERFECT WHY WHY JUST WHY
on a more calm note.. I cannot even believe this has not been updated in about a trillion years. Plus you just had to end it when rowan finnnnally admits to himself he loves avalon (even though we all knew it). I am horrified and so very saddened.

-cries- I really really hope you continue this. Its been over a year and I was hesitant to read this because of that very reason but from the get-go I loved it so much and I just keep falling more and more in love with these characters (for the most part). Seriously, this story is amazing. You've managed to create such drastically different characters and yet they all fit so well together.
I'm in love with this story and your writing and it'll be incredibly sad if we don't get to read any more about these characters. I know how things get, but I hope that maybe you'll continue this? Please? I'm sure everyone else would agree with me! I eagerly look forward to more! You have no idea how much so!

I'm finding that I actually like Dane when he's not with or obsessing over Rowan. I think I like him with Chance actually. lmao XD Although IDK if THAT will happen any more than friendship, although I'm getting to the point where there's very few more chapters and that's making me incredibly sad. I'm absolutely in love with this story and the characters are amazing. I love Rowen and Avalon especially of course.
| xSadistxFujix chapter 9 . 7/21/2012
For some reason, I just REALLY REALLY dislike Dane. IDK why. There's just something about him that... irks me. Hm... and unlike Layla who thinks they suit each other, I don't think they suit each other AT ALL, lol

God I love them. I think Avalon/Rowen has got to be my favorite pairing for the moment and nothing has even happened (yet? Hopefully? XD)!
| xSadistxFujix chapter 2 . 7/20/2012
omfg. I'm in love with ALL of these characters! Normally girls like Layla I absolutely hate-cause they annoy me (then again, most female characters for some reason annoy me-probably why I like slash so much)-but somehow I really like her. I think its your writing.
I'm in love with Rowan most of all (and then Avalon-love the name btw. Avalon McKnight, right? -giggles-)
I SHOULD go to bed cause I'm supposed to be (hopefully) going to an anime convention tomorrow, but I want to continue reading... I guess I'll read a few more chapters before sleeping. XD

I've read this over the last few days, and it is absolutely amazing! I definitely agree that Rowan would be one of those kids we all hate in real life, but in this fic, he's absolutely precious. Seriously. I just want to have him and keep him on my mantel or something. But in all seriousness, I hope you update this again sometime! There just isn't anything better than soccer and cute boys.

While I was reading, I always catched that you're in need for reviews. Ok, that is what I will give you. Short and dirty ;)
I just finished the storie and must say I'm addicted. I like the pace of the story, how the characters build up and start to act around each other.
And...I really really hope you go back to write a chapter oder more and give us an end.
Oh and this will be my first and maybe last review, because I'm totally bad in writing english language

Oh gods, I can't believe I only found this now. I love this. Though as you can see, I've only made it until chapter fifteen. It's three AM and I need to stop otherwise I'd be practically Living Dead tomorrow.
Hnngghh, I love Avalon, though at the same time I like seeing him suffer because of his dysfunctional love interest. The first few chapters didn't really get me but it got better and better and better and fffffbetter as I went on. And though realistically, people would find Rowan annoying-I can't help but be won over by him as well. I would willingly enslave myself for that boy. He is simply too adorable. ): You've created a monster. The anti-christ.
I love your writing, your sense of humor most especially. Like, the way the narrator's consciousness shifts from one character to another is a wonderful effect. I look forward to finishing all your updates later! Cheers. :)

so when i began reading this i wasn't planning on becoming too invested into it because i saw that it had been a while since you have updated... but as i began to read i couldn't help but become involved and in love with your story! so please for all that is wonderful (such as your story) please please please update!
i don't know what i can offer you in order for you to continue and update soon but i hope you do.
I am really amazed with your character development, there are plenty of good stories out there that fall short of being great due to the some overlooked details, such as plot holes, lacking in proper character development, or not conveying some of the characters feelings/thoughts. I feel that you have sufficiently developed your character with an amazing plot line and amazing writing. I really feel as if i am progressing with Rowan as i read along. And the other character too, i have to say i really like your supporting characters. And i don't know where you are going with Rowan's mother. Part of me feels as if Rowan and Dom should completely move on and forget about her but i also feel that they both need closure. That Rowan, in order to progress with Avalon, has to deal with his mother now that Jack has reappeared.
hope to read more soon!

perfect story :)
| ReadTheMusic chapter 33 . 10/26/2011
Wow! That took me a huge amount of time haha. 300.000 words, and English not being my first language. But I finally got through all of the chapters.
It's very well written. You really can see the characters develop. Most of all the changes in Rowan's character. Rowan is a guy you love to hate. He's so full of himself, spoiled and always the center of attention. But behind that facade he's really vulnerable. He uses his attitude as his shield, to protect himself.
It's amazing how 1 person can change your life. Dominic, Layla, Henriette and Dane have tried their whole lives, or as long as they know Rowan, to open up more. Too be nicer, to act like a normal human being, but with no succes. Then there's Avelon, and BAM! Rowan starts to see that what he's doing isn't right.
I'm curious how this story will end, cause it has to end somewhere right? Therefore I hope you'll have some time in the future where you'll update this amazing story.

I have been reading this little by little since last week...it's so long, it's perfect for reading between classes. Except for near the end, I was sort of tearing up a little, and that was sort of awkward...
Anyway, this is one of the better stories I've read on fp in a long time and I'm really happy I found it. The characterization is just so...good. It's exactly what I try to do when I write, except you do it so marvelously that it's almost disheartening. I'm like, Oh god I can't be as good as that. Haha.
But I've been thinking about the characters in day-to-day life now because evidently I caught he disease haha.
I really hope that you update again soon. Because I'd be very disappointed if this is where it gets let off. There's so much more that needs to be said! But even if it doesn't continue, I seriously enjoyed it. And here's a review for you, because I know how much they mean. ;)
