Wow. That is one doozy of a message in a bottle. Loved it, makes me tear up just a little.
I want the test of it all done so I can read it all together. Please :-)

Yep, Nope, Huh? I'm with Ally on the copper blood deal. How does that work again? I read your section through a couple of times, looked up hemocyanin, read it a couple of times. I can clearly and unequivocally state I have no idea what you mean. Oh, I get that Hemocyanin is an oxygen transport system used mainly by Mollusca and Arthropoda animal phyla. That the hemocyanins are quite different in both, and that Hemocyanin is quite a bit more effective than hemoglobin in low oxygen, cold water environments. Not too big a stretch to see it being viable as part of the Sia Mara physiology.
Still don't get why Fen's mom died of copper poisoning or why Fen has survived at all. I get that Luke had a surfeit of copper after his swim and thus his green blood. So how did Fen survive without copper and her mother die of copper poisoning? It makes me dizzy just trying to write it out. lol Yep, Nope, Huh! Completely confused!
Thanks for writing, and don't think I missed Javier at the end. Is he Fen's brother?

Hmmmmmmm I had to read over the copper explanation a couple times but I think I get it. They need to swim in cold water to excrete the copper? Or else it builds up in their blood? And Luke was...not swimming for long enough in cold enough water? Only it sounded like Luke was doing the opposite so I'm a little confused.

smiles here... automatically my mind flips to a scene from Blazing Saddles, and I think it was Cleavon Little who said, "I must! I must!" (write, that is...) LOL good job... I like that Gaelith fashioned a necklace of copper for Fen's crystal. Nice touch. Thank you for writing... I do so look forward to each chapter, and I know I'm going to be more than a bit disappointed when the story comes to an end, but then all good stories must end some time, mustn't they?

Why did it list me as Guest? I know I put my name on it. The previous review is me.
| Guest chapter 40 . 3/5
Yesterday, Mardi Gras, icy cold, wet, long day, so tired, warm shower, sleep.
Today I get to read two chapters! lol What is a nursery when it's not a nursery? Nice transition and set up for today. I liked the shout out to Rowling, Bujold and two of my favorite series. I also thought the Dig at "A Tale of Two Cities" right on the mark. What was Dickens thinking?
In thinking Gaelith really slipped in not limiting Fens existing art, although she did set limits on Elfie (good name btw).
So glad we get to hear Fen's message from her mom, I'm looking forward to it.
Thank you, as always, for writing. Those of us who can't depend on those of us who can. Original storytelling is a great gift.

Well I feel guilty now. So ummm, thanks to all of the people picking up the slack and reviewing at the end of each chapter, this story always ends up leaving me much happier then I was before reading the days chapter. I greatly appreciate the constant updates, and the surprizes that the plot seems to be constantly throwing at us. Fen and her story have become a part of my daily life, and I have to admit that I was really happy when you desided that this was not going to be the end of the story.
In terms of this chapter, as always I loved the interactions. I think I was just as relieved as Fen when she realized that Luke was Ok. I didn't think that you'd kill him off, but with someone as we'll read as yourself you never know who your going to take your insperarion from. The translated pattern and it's dificulties never fail to amuse me, and I loved learning more about this under water civilization. The only thing left to say is that I loved that Fen was so upset over Hedwigs death, even if it could be coincidered a bit of a spoiler.
I've loved watching Fen develope, getting to know the underwater civilization, and learning how telekinesis might work, and I hope it doesn't end anytime soon.
Thank you again

Why did she want to cry? I can't wait for more!

It is nice to see the human side of Cynta, sometimes, aside from Luke they all seem so cold and goal oriented.
| AllyrienDM chapter 40 . 3/5
D I love the mistranslations
| tehachap chapter 39 . 3/4
I didn't realize that it was a Phoenix that attacked Baldric; I'm presuming it came out of Fen's artwork, yet what caused the fire? I realize Phoenix are reborn from fire/ashes, but I was under the impression that when Fen commanded "Defend," the chainmail (or whatever artwork was acting as a protectant to her skin, and thus being extended to the Queen's body), would make the scene go in a completely different direction. i.e., Baldic wouldn't have been able to penetrate the protection and thus his attempt to harm the Queen would be ineffective, he would be disarmed by the Queen's guards (or Kaio) and placed under arrest. What happened to Fen's neighbor? Where did he get off to while all of this was taking place on stage (and WHO did he disappear with?) What's his part in all of this? Did he know Fen was who she truly is? Was he another of the Watchers (like Luke)? Is Fen ever going to be allowed to go home? Will she want to?

Yessssssss more worddsssssss. Can there be a sequel? Can there? Can there? Pretty please? Sequel or I start writing bad Gaelith romance fic. Crossovers. With ELROND. *nod*
| kage Elric chapter 39 . 3/4
Ho that was quick well done
I should totally be studying right now but...
lol I love Gaelith, she's just so great and i think their mom is either gonna be distantly cold to Fen or cold but obviously angry on the inside. As for the phoenix killing the dude, well done but also ouch, not gonna go over well with the council i imagine, even if he was threatening the queen. Also one thing that i'd like clarified is there ONE queen for all Sia Mara? and then the Voices or does each city ae a Queen cuz its a little confusing.
| Eventual Horizon chapter 38 . 3/4
I am really enjoying this story. It is very well done and I check at least every day to see if something new has been posted. Thanks to the author for all of their hard work!
