More intriguing AU than I thought would be
So now that I've finally finished reading the whole thing (and admittedly, I probably skimmed some stuff because I was too anxious to see SoMa's interactions and the inevitable reveal of identity) I have to say, this is definitely a very successful AU. It's like a cross between heroes, X-Men, and Soul Eater, and I like it. In the time I spent away from the computer before I'd completed it, it left my imagination rolling, too. A little more language than I'd have liked to see, but that aspect did help portray some of the panic, so it's not something that I'd necessarily count against it. You did a very good job in staying in character and yet putting them in different scenarios and relationships. The introduction on how they got to this life style of ex-villain was very simple, but entertaining enough, so it seemed a very good transition. I especially loved how you portrayed Black Star as well. This is something I have trouble doing in regards to that specific character. However, most of all, I loved the entire conclusion and how you really animated the emotions, thoughts, and actions in the last chapter. It gave a good closure to the story as a whole.
Overall... I approve!
Haven't finished reading it yet, but I need to peel my eyes away from the screen and I didn't want to ignore this story. And I'm glad I didn't pass it up. Just wanted to say that you have such fabulous writing skills. Your range of vocabulary is awesome and inspiring. Your style is so poetic, quite an admirable characteristic. You've painted their personalities very well so far. As one that has never seen or heard of Bastion, I'd clarify what the Ura are, but maybe this is just because I haven't reached that part yet. Despite that, it caught my undivided attention very well, making me wonder several things about this world they're based in (and this sort of curiosity is very much a good thing). It has a very original feel so far, a story all in its own. Amazing job! I'll definitely be continuing this story till the end!Read the story now
