Oh wow...I am completely unable to say how I feel after reading this story. This is one of the best I have read by far and compares to any author that has been published. I am completely in awe by your amazing talent and can only hope for you to grace us with more stories. Again, wow....Thank you! I sincerely hope you continue to write.

Wow. I so didn't see the story ending that way. I loved everything about the plot and characters. The only thing that I thought seemed not believable was when Serenity came back, she and Endymion were all cozy. You know? I was more expecting a fight between the two of them... Not that they didn't fight enough. lol. It just seemed a little weird how they could be so comforting to one another after a year of her not being around plus the baby thing. Anywho, I loved this story, you are a very talented writer! It was an amazing story!

Why did you had to maka the ending soo sad? I like your story, but I don't know if I like the ending. Anyway, this story is nice.
This story is probably one of the best that I have EVER read. Not just as a fanfiction, but ALL the stories I've ever read, heard, etc. It made me laugh, had me on the edge of my seat, had me frustrated, and - most important of all - made me cry (and that says a lot, since things, including REAL things, do not make me cry).
Although many believe that the ending was sad, I think it was perfect. It touched me. Thank you for such a great story madamhawke.

Very nice!! Although I was hoping your ending would go the other way, but I still love it. :-) Keep up the good work.

Hello, I wanted to ask you if you have the ending or sequel for the story "tourniquet".Thanks!
|mona - Tuesday February 07, 2006 at 23:21|
Admittingly, I had doubts for this story but you have proved me wrong.
The emotions are so raw and so realistically displayed, it is captivating. You've managed to create a series of events that so fittingly piece together. This is very intelligent writing and truly one of my favorite stories of all time.

|josie - Thursday December 29, 2005 at 03:52|
hey, i just finished reading your story...it is incredible. Amazingly well written and the story line,WOW, i really wasnt expecting that. Alot of people say that the ending should be changed but i disagree, the way you ended it was perfect, sad yes but suited the story very nicely.
Congrats on a job well done. You should think of getting it published...it would be a best seller. Looking forward to reading more of your stories.

Wow, is just one word I could said when finishing reading the fanfic. This is one of the most saddest fanfic I have ever read, though I have to admit that the story is very well-plotted and captured well to view of other readers. Anyway, high rating reviews for this fanfic despite its sad, um, ending, I think. Hope to read future fanfics very well plotted but not that sad...--"
|Unek530 - Thursday October 20, 2005 at 20:04|
I'm speechless.. It was so beautifully written.. and I have to say, while I'm writing this review, my eyes are misty with tears. Absolutely beautiful... I would have preferred it to end differently, but with this ending, the story has a much stronger impact. I hope to see more of your wonderful stories soon. Take care~
Wow... That was sad. I actually read this story a long time ago though you hadn't finished it yet I left ariasink and just came back recently, saw you updated, forgot what the entire story was about, and re read plus finished what you wrote. And... wow... That was a really awesome story and I commend you for it! Very depressing at the end, and even though I hate sad endings, as a writer I love them! lol. You always seem to get more emotion in the reviews hehe. Anyway I was wondering why you titled your story "Tourniquet" I was curious what it meant so I looked it up in the dictionary... and it didn't make sense to me @_@ Anyway! Great job on your story ^^
This was an amazing story...i cried, and laughed. One of the best stories i have read in a looong time. I swear u should get this published. I especially loved it because it was totally ORIGINAL. I loved Serenity's personality and that she was strong and not the crybaby that she usually is in stories. I loved Endymion's personality too. I also loved the idea of the Knights and the twists u added to the story. This story was 100% original and amazing. it took my breath away. Thank u for writing such a terrific story and taking the time to finish it too.

that was a great story very emotional but i really did not like the ending that much*sniff sniff* why did she have to go
|MMHYUM - Thursday March 03, 2005 at 07:16|
Man oh man. I am addict, I admit. I couldn't stop til I finished your story. Although in the first few chapters I wished the previous reviewers didn't reveal the ending of the story, I read the fic regardless and it was wonderful. You are a GREAT writer, and your story has such a twist and although sad, BEAUTFUL ending.
Please update Mystery of Red Silk soon! I will wait (semi)patiently because I know you don't just scribble words together and then hit "publish"- I'll wait for another nail biting chapter!
Anyway, LOVE IT! LOVE IT!

SOB* She died at the end!
I like your story very much but was saddened tremendously when Serenity died.
It was a great story however and I can't wait to see what story you may have next. Hopefully, if you choose to write another, the ending will end a little more happy for the main characters.
Either way, great story!
|Wam - Friday February 25, 2005 at 01:16|
One of the most heartfelt and splendidly writen stories i have read in a long time. It's enough to make me cry. Thank you. It's a lovely story.
|lexie - Tuesday February 08, 2005 at 14:43|
I wasn't expecting that. I had a feeling that Endy was the guy who killed Sere's fathter, but I'm just blown away by the new developments. I started to think that it was Diamond after a while. Oh this is going to be really good. I can't wait to read the next chapters.
|jennie - Sunday January 16, 2005 at 22:40|
Wow. You know I really don't know what to think about that. Hmmmm.... I just don't know. It was a great story but, I don't know. I really ummm...I give up.
Wonderfully written story all the way to the end. However, I'm sure I'm not the first or the last to say those words to you. I enjoyed this story more than any other AU Serenity & Endymion story, and I'm glad you had the courage to travel into a side that is not often seen with these type of stories. You did a great job, and I hope to read more from you in the future.
|lacyloss - Saturday November 20, 2004 at 15:01|
Oh my god is that really the end why did she have to die.... this was a good story and i only hope that you could write a sequel to this story!! Thank you for updating!
|kildare - Thursday November 18, 2004 at 23:41|
loved it! i thought serenity dying at the end only made sense, cause thats life and life isnt always happy. wonderful but sad...but mostly wonderful!!!!!!
|v1786 - Wednesday November 17, 2004 at 08:39|
that's all I can say. omg wow.
no words to describe the story. i think the ending was brillant. usually stories end with everything all happy and a happy ending. but u gave real justice to the characters, you made them human.
|Jupiter - Wednesday November 17, 2004 at 06:48|
That was deep...real deep.
|Anonymous - Tuesday November 16, 2004 at 22:15|
I hated that Serenity died...i dont like this ending, i want serenity back! Why didn't they live happily, after all they've been through!!
|Leeza - Tuesday November 16, 2004 at 20:31|
DAMN!!!!! That was good, I am still hoping that you will bring Serenity back but that is okay.
This story rocks and I hope to read more from you.
|becxfok01 - Sunday November 14, 2004 at 14:01|
Oh my gosh. I can't believe it! How couls Serenity possibly think of marrying Seiya?! Ok, i do get the reasoining, but its almost like shes onlt doing it to revenge Endymion for never proposing properly. I love your story! Its my only 'Author Alert' story on fanfiction.net. The chapters are getting more exciting! Pls update soon! Cheers.
|Jupiter - Saturday November 06, 2004 at 05:57|
You've got to be kidding me. That is like the killer of all "to be concluded"'s!!! Please write the next chapter, I'm loving this story!
THANK YOU so much for updating, I have been keeping up with this story, and was sad to hear you had to take a break. I do understand though, I graduated not too long ago, myself. Anyways, continue on with the exellent story! I cant believe what you revealed in chapters 13-14! This is definitely getting intense. *waits for more updates.*

What can one say? Firstly, I love the sentiments expressed in your opening quotes from Serenity. Your story possesses a deep thought provoking message that moves beyond the horizons of your narrative, yet includes it -- Seldom have I read such a piece that reflects such a sense of power and wisdom -- It is a Rosetta of hope, inspiration and power: You're a mistress of the word with the ability to forge a land scape of vitality, and inspire empathy in the reader. Your characters have such agency; they engage, draw out the reader and you feel part of the action-adventure, plot. The subtle nuance you've woven into your story is truly remarkable. Your words and images, the excellent characterisation and visualisation unquestioningly superb. However, and please forgive me, I really hope you will do justice to your work that little bit more as it deserves all you can give it, I'm sure you would agree? So from the heart, soul and my writer-reader's POV, please take CR's advice and find yourself a BETA-editor. This is not an admonishment, or put down, on the contrary; its an affirmation of your talent that highlights the desire to see it really shine as it has obviously won the hearts of your readers including mine -- this beautiful and moving story deserves your best attention -- 'I've only finished the first 2 chapters' . & I'm in awe of this story! .. LOL so come on, take a bow and please go over your chapters & polish them up, & consider the BETA! -- all the best, looking forward to reading more "and re-reading!" *winks* ^__^ L.
