Thanks for this story. I like the concept of the 'mancers. Are you going to continue this story? I really hope so.
I like the madness that the others don't understand, that is in reality just a different concept of reality.

I have to say that other than the air ship and the clockwork arm there is not much "Steampunk" in the story yet. However, the story is building and making twists and turns. Very good.

Love the chapter. The characters are well defined and believable. The plot is interesting enough to want more of the story.

How the heck do you only have 14 (now 15) reviews (I think)? This is absolutely amazing. I can't even begin to explain how much I love this; not only are you wonderful at handling the steampunk aspects of this, you also manage to twist in some fantasy with all of the 'mancers. Keep up the wonderful work.

I thought this is an absolutly great story and that your characters are to lovable for their own good. I'm so sorry that I have only now found this story but oh well. I have been trying to review more but I don't always know what to say other than I really enjoy reading your story. So never give up kay, cause I love it and kinda never want it to end. Another chapter soon would be lovely. Thanks

I honestly have no idea why this isn't getting lots and lots and lots of love D: Because I loved this. I thought the aeromancing/geomancing theme was brilliant and original. Not to mention that I've always liked steampunk elements in my fics 3 It's almost like you're hitting all my fic kinks here hahaha. You should seriously continue this. Seriously.
And that massage scene? Let's just say: Cold Shower for me!

Thank you for continuing this story! And thanks for the recs at the end of other Steampunk stories. This is the first one I've read and I love it so far, so I will definitely check out the others.

I am enthralled... have I mentioned that I love your writing style, both here and on fanfiction dot net? Keep on!

Ch. 7: Tobias has it BAD! He's in such a state over Hadrian. I love it! And he's assuming that Hadrian and Devlin are lovers. I hope that gets cleared up soon ;) And plus he hasn't drank any alcohol in a while. Poor guy..lol.
.God...Black is massaging Tobias' shoulders! :):):) And Tobias thinks "I'm in Love"...well, nothing better than a good shoulder rub to start off the courting...:) And Hadrian is perplexed that Tobias isn't scared of him.
I sincerely hope you continue this story. I know no one but me has reviewed it so far but its TOO FUCKING GOOD TO DROP! It truly is.

Ch. 6: This is my favorite chapter yet. I am so intrigued by Hadrian and the way you described what he is and why was enthralling. And I now understand Hadrian and Devlin's relationship. They are not lovers nor have they even been. Devlin is even married! Which is sweet. But that leads me to wonder if maybe that is what's lacking in Hadrian's life...romance/intimacy/love? He wanted to kiss Devlin (a show of affection for getting him the clothes) but was scared of how he would react so he didn't. So I'm seeing his need for it but he's suppressing it out of fear. And I totally SQUEEED at the end when Tobias and Hadrian's eyes lock and Hadrian feels butterflies and warmth in his heart. And so it begins. :)

Ch. 5: Now we are starting to get a glimpse of the crew members. I love Natasha Kristof and Alanna Doherty.
Uh?: "Five: the (insane) aeromancer is—judging from that Watchdog's words and nitpicky bit of phrasing during their conversation—not an aeromancer at all." Hadrian is not a true Aeromancer? Interesting! I totally didn't even get that during the last chapter when Sharpe said this: He's not like other aeromancers, but they have no other label with which to stick him. So is he like a Seer? Can see visions and the future?
"Four: the aeromancer is absolutely goddamned beautiful. Maybe that's not relevant, but Tobias files it away as an observation anyway." GASP! Tobias has a crush on Hadrian! SQUEEE!
You are created and oustanding mystery here that I am dying to know the answer to: what is "eating" the ships/personnel and how does Hadrian fit into it!
Also love how all the crew members are Tobia's past captures.

Ch. 4: What Hadrian said about Captain Treadwell was beautiful!:
"The air knows him. He doesn't fight it, he rides it, he loves it, and it loves him in return. Excelsior…she will accept no one else. This fate will accept no one else. The skies wept when he turned his back on them, and the clouds hung lower. They couldn't bear the blue anymore."
I'm so sad for Hadrian. He suffers so much with his madness. But now I understand why he's mad..."too powerful, too wild. That's what makes him mad-the power can't be controlled the way he was taught, but that's the only way anyone knows, so that's what he tries, even when he knows they don't work."
So far, this story is AMAZING!
