This is so well written, I really admire the way that you are able to combine an action fic with meaningful slash. This fic was the first Y/A i ever read and really made me move my ass and start writing my own stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Author's Response: Thanks so very much! I'm especially happy that you found it well-written, as I haven't managed to find a beta for it (this is a one-off from my home fandom...). And yes! Inspiring people to write is the greatest compliment imaginable! Best of luck, and I'm looking forward to reading the result! *hugs*

Oh, wow!

This is just what I've been looking for. I really like the writing in this, it is casual but eloquent, describing the situation perfectly.

Can't wait to see where it goes!

Author's Response: So glad you liked the first chapter & hope you enjoyed the rest too!!

As I said before- How can I have missed this? :) I really like this version, so much Yassen angst. You should be really proud of how this turned out. :)

Author's Response: Thanks! There's not enough Yassen Angst in this fandom ... but Yassen is human too! Actually .... I've just torn to shreds in the final chapter of this arc, mwahahaha, like he didn't already have enough guilt to live with!

Rated: Adults only

Ok I just want to say a few things:

1. That was FANTASTIC! I cannot express how in character that was and how perfect the 'Yassen' voice was.

2. How is it that I have not reviewed this before? You deserve roses and chocolates galore for this one.

3. Thank you so much for posting this. You just got it so so right.

:)

Author's Response: Thanks so much for such a great review. This story is one of my favorites. I'm glad you liked it. Hope things are going well with you these days.

hhmmm...I think the word I am look for is.....yum.

Needless to say, I really liked this. The preoccupation with pain suits both Yassen and Alex down to the ground and as usual you have done a fantastic job of writing it up.

Kudos, hun :)

(My professional opinion):
Another wonderful installment in this series. One of the things I particularly like about these fics is the well illustrated link between the physical reality and the emotional response it brings out in Alex. Very well written.

(My fan-girl, angst-loving opinion):
Sqeee!I luvs it.

Author's Response: Thanks! I know this series isn't everyone's cup to tea but it seems to be hitting the spot for a few people -- glad you like it! <3

Yay! I am so glad that this chapter is up! Excellent as per usual, can't wait for the next one.

Wow ok. Lots of interesting stuff in this chapter. I really like how you have taken the canon and manipulated it to serve your story. It is a rare to find someone who can recognise the gaps in the original material and use them to their advantage but you've certainly managed it.

One of the things that I really like about you're writing is the way that it flows. You convey Alex's thought process without it being boring or repetative. Well Done :)

Also I personally have never seen Alex as a drinker, probably because AHoz writes him as such a straight arrow in the books (e.g when the bad guys are drinking wine, Alex is having Pepsi [TANGENT: Don't you think that perhaps there is a subliminal message there that only bad people drink alcohol? The only other person who is even briefly mentioned as being a drinker is Ian]) That said I found that how you worked that into you're story it seemed natural for Alex's character development. It gives the reader that evidence that he's growing up a bit and is starting to make these little decisions for himself, which reflect the larger over-all change in his personality of taking responsibility and claiming his independance. By letting him make the little choices it's a subtle way of showing that shift. In short, very clever on your part. I like it. :) (Hope that it what you were aiming for and I haven't just read into it way too much in an attempt to sound intelligent XD.

Really looking forward to where this is heading and thanks so much for up-dating quickly. You're a star.

Author's Response: (Hope that it what you were aiming for and I haven't just read into it way too much in an attempt to sound intelligent XD. That made me laugh ;)! but yes, in principle I was trying to capture Alex's teenagerishness and all the issues and complexities that come with it. I'm really glad you enjoyed the chapter. It was one of the hardest to write, and despite the action, it actually represents the calm before the storm! New chapter now posted <3.

I really liked this as darker take on Alex's personality. The way that you portray his need to feel threatened and how play acting doesn't do it for him is a really great way of putting a mature spin on the 'death wish' sort of thing that Horowitz has going with him, so it's sort of like canon Alex but for adults.

Kudos, this was beautifully written :)

Another triumph :) Very nice, an easy read that suits both the characters. I have a really hard time writing Tom but he comes across so convincing when you do it. You make difficult subject matter and character voices look so easy and that is a real talent :)

Also your writing style is getting classier with each story. In short. I love it.

Author's Response: Hehehe thanks This made me a smile a bit Also your writing style is getting classier with each story. In short. I love it. as I chose the style as a nod to my old Harry Potter fic rather than as an experimental dip (and in the hope that some of my old readers/fans would take to my new fandom - but not much luck with this still! It's nice to know it reads comfortably and smoothly.

I really like this, not only because I think your writing is getting better and better with each story but also because this plot is very reality-based in that it highlights all of the trappings of the Y/A illicit relationship . The irony and hypocrisy of MI6 accusing Yassen of what is essentially the exploitation of a minor when they do exactly the same thing themselves on a daily basis is delicious:)

Thanks for sharing

Rated: Adults only
Summary: Yassen did have some morals, and sexually assaulting a fourteen-year-old boy was something he could not bring himself to do, no matter how much that boy reminded him of his former lover, John Rider. So for ten long years, he’d waited, and watched, and planned for this day, a day when Alex was no longer a child.

It has been a while for me but it was great to see your new stuff and WOW! Short and sweet but very well done, with just that tiny edge of a threat in it. That was gorgeous, thanks for sharing :)

Author's Response: Hey there - long time no see. I'm glad you're still around. I'm trying to get all my stories archived over here; this was one that was on the Flash-Rider comm on LJ. I still have a few more to upload but I just don't have time. Thanks for the review! *hugs*
