Me again! Just wanted to say again how very much I love this retelling of a favorite of mine. I like to reread it every few years. Beautiful work, beautiful spin. Publish it and I'll buy it!

I read this all today. I loved it. I loved it, and I was enjoying it - and then Safi gave up her voice, and I knew where this was going to go, and I hated you. Then in the last (or next to last) chapter Iphi and Safi finally get together and I thought "oh thank god, it isn't going to be like that" and then you went there again. And I do hate you, a little bit. But I still love it and I will read it again.

A few suggestions. In the chapters when Iphi is treating Safi to write, there are some errors; a few instances of write being written as right, and of read being written as reed. Also, in the last paragraph, the "stuff of legends" could probably be better worded because 'stuff' feels out of place in this speech.

This. This right there.

This is why I read the ending first.

To avoid getting attached and then have the author ruin it by ending it unhappily.

Whew, I practically devoured this story from start to finish. My god, it's amazing. Someone recommended this and I'm so glad I tried it. This is absolutely stunning, it was like reading an actual book/novel (that's not something I expected, I usually read fanfiction and that's a gigantic level below this). Wish the ending could've been happier, but I shouldn't be surprised considering all the soundtracks. I had hoped you had more stories, but that's not the case... At least I can up your review count, because this definitely deserves it. I'm highly, highly impressed.

... ... ... ... Iphi and Safi... ... ... ... I just... I just wanted happiness for them... I guess that's why this is an evil fairy tale... Well... fuck...

In all honesty, though, thank you for this amazing story. I'd still own it if I could buy it. I loved your writing. I hope you release more stories. This was beautiful. Truly beautiful. Thank you. :'-(

Iphi realizing Selena and Safi are the real person brought tears to my eyes and a lot sniffling. Thanks for that!

The ending... oh my goodness, the ending. That was beautiful. It was erotic, yeah, but it so beautifully written as well. I cannot give you enough praise! Your working is stunning. I love this story! If this story ever gets published I will buy it the day it's released. There needs to be more mermaid stories like this. You. You are an excellent writer! :-)

... FUCK!... to the beginning!

I appreciated The Little Mermaid reference in this chapter. "How I longed to be at her side, a part of her dance, a part of her world." That was beautifully written. :)

Oh my God! The passion. The raw passion! Iphi and Selena... just kiss already. You practically were! I need this relationship to happen!

On a side note, if Euphedor has returned... oh my God, I hope he hasn't... I just want there to be happiness at the end of this story. I want Iphi and Selena (Safi) to be happy!

Melanda letting Selena go literally brought tears to my eyes. I hope Selena visits them again. Maybe she can even bring Iphi to them and they can converse together?

So much freaking angst! I have a terrifying feeling this may end for the worst...

They love each other. I know Iphi doesn't want to betray Safi, but she loves Selena.
JimbabweK88 chapter 21 . 7/20/2014

IPHI! Open your eyes! Selena IS Safi! Don't let Safi (aka Selena) turn to sea foam! I know you don't know of this curse but you MUST save her regardless! You must see that Safi and Selena are the same before it's too late! Please! I don't want Safi to die! :'-(
JimbabweK88 chapter 20 . 7/20/2014
Iphi teaching Safi to write was so freaking adorable! I laughed and felt as much joy as Iphi. I love their relationship so much. You do a wonderful job at painting them together. :)

The ending was wonderful. I want Safi to tell Iphi who she is. I know she thinks Iphi hates her mermaid form, but if only Iphi would tell Selena about Safi she would see that Iphi does in fact love her. Then again, what reason does Iphi have to tell Selena of Safi?

Also, I noticed in this chapter that you used the word "right" when you were meaning to use the word "write." :D
JimbabweK88 chapter 18 . 7/20/2014
Beautiful. I'm so happy Safi -Selena- and Iphi reunited even if Safi can't tell Iphi who she really is. I just everything works out in the end...
