Gah! You have no idea how long i spent looking for this story! Seriously, i even went on yahoo answers to try and find it because i forgot the characters names and title.. And then tonight it dawned on me that the protagonist's name was alexander! And then of course alex and xander, seperately. Thank goodness for that because i was so scared I was never gonna be able to read this again. :D i just adore Xander, my main reason for re reading through the 50 chapters I already read. Being older somehow makes the writing feel different, and I can appreciate the work you put into making this story feel more real, more than I did when i was younger.. This just reqds professional and it may not be done yet at 61 chapters but it feels more put together than most fp fics. Now, i will favorite and follow this so i never again lose track!

So, mind reading not nearly as fun as one might think it is. I can't even imagine going from being alone my head for years and years to everyone in a mile radius being in it.

I'm not sure why, maybe it's the psychotics, but when I try to think of Xander, I see Gamzee's face in my head. For reference, he's a clown person who goes homicidally crazy when he sobers up from being basically stoned on strange pies. (Homestuck)

I read this last week when it came out, but I was on vacation and the hotel computer allowed me to read, but not to sign in! It was a long chapter-I had to keep going back to finish reading so I didn't hog the lobby computer! So I'm home, and wanted to leave a quick review. As usual, loved the Xander/Alex interaction the best-and the ending just left me wanting more, when Osono finally confronts Xander-and then we have to wait for the next chapter to hear the response! I'm not sure why Stephanie is being sent away to do the body transfer with Gwen-it makes me wonder if Xander is going to be successful or not. In one sense, I'm looking for closure-in the other sense, I'm sort of glad because it means it might not be 'over' as quickly as I'd guessed! In any sense, I like it!

I loved how Eric and Jason had the same exact reaction to seeing Madeline! That was priceless, considering how very different they are. I'm still not sure who Madeline is, exactly, but eventually it will come out. I liked that you mentioned Xander's real identity again. Can't wait to hear that back story. Not sure how I feel about Stephanie (crazy woman) but even her back story is beginning to come out. I really am enjoying this story.

Loved it-so glad you're back. I was worried we wouldn't see anything until September. Your chapters are always so long it's a pleasure to read-and re-read. Definitely worth the wait.

So I have read the whole thing and I love it. It does get a bit confusing from time to time when Alex and Xander are taking… Trying to figure out which one is in the head.
So now I want to know what happens…
SOOOO UPDATE SOON!

This Chapter was so full of attitude...in my opinion anyway. Madelaine is one interesting character...she doesn't seem to stop screaming at everyone and now it is imaginable as to how terrified her people must be of her.
When will there be a comic update of this? :)
| Ramar chapter 53 . 5/1/2011
Wow...I'm starting to like the Stephanie and Jason pairing...They are just so...I can't put it in words...unique to themselves? And this was one awesome chapter :)
Now, to answer your question about my question :D My question originated from that part where Alex says that he's not complaining about Xander obtaining money through rather shady ways, because he liked luxury...I believe that's what was said but I might be wrong...So that's how my Q came into being :) And I do hope that you'll get to Alex's background soon :)
| Ramar chapter 1 . 5/1/2011
Okay, I've finished reading everything but I just couldn't help rereading some of my favourite parts...and then a Q popped into my head...Before Xander, "Marshall", came into his life, was Alex from a rich family?
| Ramar chapter 52 . 5/1/2011
I just stumbled on this accidentally and all I can say is this was definitely a good read, grabbing my attention from the start, with the...hm shall we say, situation between Alex and Xander. There're so many twist and turns in this rather complex plot that, at one point, you got my head reeling :) And that's a complement. I love the diversity of character you threw into the story, giving us, the reader, a chance to actually see things from all the major character's point of view, except Eric, Benoit, and Xander, which, of course, is quite understandable, considering the fact that the revelation of their thoughts and perspectives would ruin everything, until you believe it is the right time to bomb us with some kind of shock-filled ending and/or whatnot. All in all, I can't wait for the next update.
Probably one of the things that caught my attention was the improbability of them ever escaping the Agents, unless the whole Agency went into some kind of self-destruct mode, and the whole idea of them ever reaching peace and living their own 'normal' lives again. It's just so hard for me to see how all this will end and that's one of the factors, I believe, that a good story should have; unpredictable.
More soon, I hope, for I fear that you've dropped TOKoR, regarding the fact that it seems that there hasn't been any updates in a month... :(

Lots of stuff happening. I'm glad Xander finally got to have his coffee. Everything seemed to end on a cliffie-Alex's explanation to Osono, Eric and Benoit's face-off with the German woman, Stephanie's tears, and Rudy's dilemma with the policeman. Next posting should be interesting!

I hope Xander gets to have his coffee this time . . . .

Thank you, thank you for another episode. I look forward to them. Going back to the last chapter, I want to remark on the difference between the 6 years vs. 8 years-is it sort of like what Stephanie had been doing with Gwen-Xander (Marshall?)studied Alex for 2 years before actually 'going in?' I know you've mentioned it several times, so it must be significant. I like the little hints of things, to make your readers try to figure out what it all means. . . it means you have a high opinion of us! I like that! Looking forward to finding out what happens-I'm glad Charlton won't be the end! (Will it?)

This is an incredible story, I was hooked from the first few chapters and was enthralled by the fact that it is deceptively psychologically complex. I also love how you use the bold text for Xander, which i imagine, represents the power and influence he has over Alex. Good job man.
