You NEED to finish this.
Wow. I am blown away. This took all that I knew about Phantom of the Opera, (and I'm a huge geek about it,) and turned it on it's head.
This is an amazing plot, with interesting elements and more to it than I thought it'd have. The addition of the time in between movie events is brilliant.
Kayla is not the sort of OC that people would generally put into the book, as it's established her skill is not in music, but rather in art and set design. It works fantastically an gives the entirety of the story a very unique, and epic touch. Plus, we then get to meet the wonderful stage crew that way. (Seriously. Those are such amazing characters. Same with Enrico. Awesome characters.)
I dearly hope that you are able to find some time to finish his story. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and think it would be an awful pity to leave it off right there at the climax.
The only suggestion i have is a few little misspells, but nothing at all serious. This story is highly, highly recommended, even without the ending. Fantastic work, and keep it up.
A very enjoyable read!
This was one of the best Ace Attorney fics I've read. The story was extremely compelling, and the AU well thought out. I especially loved seeing characters I could easily recognize popping up here and there throughout the story.
The only suggestion I'd have is a simple spell and grammar check. There were a few areas that need attention, but it never got to the point that it was difficult to understand the story.
Overall, a fantastic read with a well thought out and very enjoyable plot, well-written characters that shine true to the original story, and a very interesting AU to boot.
(I'd do 4.5 if I could! Grammar was the only problem!)
I literally have no words....
Maybe it's just my obsession with the Batman Villains, but I loved this story to an amazing degree. It was heartwarming, hilarious, and all around amazing.
Pretty much all of my favorite characters were included as major parts, and were well written to boot. The feel of the setting was perfectly placed. I swear, this just made me so freakin' happy. Everything.
Heck, I don't even really ship Joker and Harley. I still LOVED this iteration of it. (I actually ship Harley and Crane, so that crush aspect of it made my day!) Sure, I didn't agree with every portrayal of every character (i.e. Pam and Selina), but this WORKED so well, I don't care.
Overall, this was extremely well thought out, with a compelling plot and a really well made love story. This is one of the best fanfics I have ever read, and that is quite the title.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Especially for Batman fans like me. I promise you will not regret reading this absolute delight of a story.
I'd suggest reading at midnight with the lights off
This was a very fun read, and I highly suggest it to anyone who likes a good tale of the bizarre to think about at night. I've always been intrigued by horror, and this one certainly has all the elements that make a great horror story.
The introduction using the mundane, normal object (the fan) was a great contrast to the supernatural feel that followed later. I also really like how the character kept referring back to the fan. (If anything, I'd do that even more. Make it something as a tie to the character's sanity. Perhaps pull it in again at the end to really tie the story together.)
The monster in this story is a little lacking, in my opinion. I would write a little more on what it looks like, how it moves. Does it make any strange noises or say anything? Th unknown can be very scary, but the vague can also pull people out of the plot, thus ruining the suspense. This is what really makes writing horror a challenge. Descriptions are what can pull a person right into the world, and make the whole thing personal to them, which is all the more scary.
All that said, I really enjoyed this piece. It was a quick read that got my heart pumping and my nerves up late at night. Just what a good horror story should be.
Well done, you certainly have my vote!
