Wow. That was absolutely beautiful. It was probably the best thing I have ever read on this website. It was perfectly paced and the writing quality was fantastic. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future!

Even when they're together they still the same with each other. Kinda wanted to see a bit more of the romance, nothing naughty or anything, but the entire story lead up to one this moment and it was about ten sentences of cuteness then back to normal basically.
Probably took me so look to review this because I didn't want it to be over. If you're saving that other epilogue for a spin off I'm in!

I don't really like writing critism because I don't want to hurt people. Now, I will because you ask for it and I already have let review that expressed how I like your story...
For me a good story have three things: Good plot, interessing characters, and nice writing style.
Your plot is interressing. In a way, it is original. You wrote, imagined your own world. But, in a other way, it's cliche. People who dislike each other and have to wed, it's a story we see often. It's not that I dislike cliche but sometime I feel like it's a easy way... Because cliche exist for a reason they make good story :) In this story, the end it's for me too much a cliche... Divorce paper? I find it easy. I think you could write something more original there. In fact, it didn't seem logical for me... Why Rysem or Orlenth didn't think of that earlier? In fact, I found your end a bite rush...
I like your characters,there belivable. I think there that your weak point it's description. I know what Rysem or Orlenth think but I don't know their physical appearance. Did, Rysem or Orlenth have tics. Also, sometimes when we are in a chapter where it's Rysem point of view, it's not that clear that we are in his head.I read sentence that I think are in Orlenth point of view. Like this: Orlenth let go of Rysem completely and scrubbed at his face with his hands. "It's just…I…I don't know why." For a moment, Orlenth's lost expression made him look younger than his twenty-four years, but he gathered himself quickly.
Maybe, it's more easier for you to be in Orlenth head.
For your writing style, I don't many things to said. I found some typos but you write really fast and that is kind of understandable. I think your story need more description, "physical" description.

I approve of the plan of stopping being idiots. :)
Communication! It will solve all your problems, boys.

I'm gonna have to say it feels like it was rushed. Perhaps it's because we never really see Rysem going into detail about his feelings. But other than that I loved it! Orlenth was so cute! Can't wait for the next chapter and see everything get wrapped up.

I'm afraid that I'm going to have to go with "awww" for my opening comment :)
Now to the helpful (hopefully) side. I felt that the transition was a bit fast-paced, like one moment it was "we're getting divorced because I think you want to find a lover" to "oh, wait, I'm a moron! I love you!"
But maybe that's just me? Anyway, I still liked it, and you're off probation :)

Aww, that's just too cute! I knew it would get better, somehow.
And now I'm off to take the Cambridge Advanced Exam, yay...
| Fryvi chapter 33 . 5/2/2012
"Aaaw" was what I was thinkingXD is "Woohoo!" a good alternative?XD
But that was way faster than I expected:O
It was good how Rysem understood it himself, instead of being way too dense like some stories go in these cases:D

Ooh dun dun dun! Can't wait to see what happens next chapter!

! Rysem just ripped Orlenth's damn heart out and step on it! I really hope things work for them soon! *cries*
