You are the mistress of awesome epics, more please?
OMG!! AMAZING!! It took me about a month to read this in between finding thing for my apartment for college and working, but when I find a chance to read this story I would sit at my computer for hours at one point i started at 10 at night and read til 5 in the morning. I didnt want to stop reading this!! Love your work!! EXCELENT WORK!!!!!
|bin82501 - Saturday October 27, 2007 at 03:49|
This was brilliant. This was beautiful. This was epic. Thank you for this fantastic piece. I enjoyed every bit of it but your finale was just perfect. Bravo and I hope you continue to write fan fiction on this level.
|Miakoday - Sunday October 21, 2007 at 06:07|
wow! As said from earlier reviewers, this was an INCREDIBLE story! You had me hooked straight from the beginning. It took all that I had to not read it straight in one night (It seems that I apparently DO have to go to work!..) You are an amazing writer and give us aspiring writers a glimpse of something that we can only hope to come close to! Kudos to you! and I look forward to reading all your future stories!
I did enjoy this story from start to finish! Thank you for sharing a wonderful story!
|Anonymous - Tuesday October 16, 2007 at 17:09|
JP you're the best, the story has everything from the girl who makes magic in her stories! ^^
What a beautiful ending! The little Usa monologue at the end was a wonderful way to end such a wonderful story. I've loved reading this, and I'm so glad everything came together happily at the end ^^
Thank you for brightening my day Jess-chan!
|Anonymous - Thursday September 27, 2007 at 15:10|
Great story, great characters...great everything, loved how you worked the end of this chapter, kudos!
|bin82501 - Saturday September 22, 2007 at 11:24|
You and these cliffhangers lol. Thanks for this story and this chapter. I was wondering what happened to Pluto.
Pretty clever with Rei that was really good.
To Quote "As Metallia evaporated in the storm of Usagi's power, Beryl's hair began to melt away, leaving a shining black mass of curls. For a few seconds, Beryl existed as she once had long ago, a simple woman with dark eyes and shattered dreams. She looked at Usagi, a single tear falling down her flushed cheeks."
I was wondering if that was Pluto/Setsuna because nothing was really ever implied that she was interested in Mamoru but hey can't help guessing lol.
Can't wait to see more!
Amazing... this is so enchanting Jess-san, I love it.
A few typos, "needed answered" was one I noticed, but nonetheless, a beautiful story.
I will be sad to see it end =[
*Sniff Sniff* What can I say, (I know i already posted a review on FF.net but I couldn't help myself >,
|Loki - Sunday September 16, 2007 at 19:09|
This was absolutely stunning SM fanfiction at its very best
WISE: not only have we a grand epic that will reach its conclusion, but it is a story so skilfully told with a plethora of diverse and exciting sub-plots, fabulous characterisation, images, and a flowing vocabulary and the affect... superb
You set out to create something that blended seamlessly with the SM chronicles of Silver, present and future and in that goal, the Ice Arc has more than succeeded, it has revolutionized the genre and shown how a story can live forever, and move in so many different directions and hold the interest and respect of the reader. You did this with ease and in a natural way as with all of the story.
All your hard work has paid off JP and you have proven beyond doubt you're a class writer and this story stands as testament to that fact.
Each Senshi you gave us a unique and in-depth insight, into their minds, hearts and how they were oh-so human and yet, their imortal magic shone and contrasted with the trials and tribulations they experienced along the way. Even your villains had potency and substance of character.the Youma and Dark Moon Family and more besides, a rich tapestry of memorable worlds and beings.
Your characters evolved naturally and the tempest they faced tempered and strengthened them. The progress each makes is realistic and fabulously carried off and you did it to perfection, struggles of the heart, love, hate, fear, victory, defeat and sanctuary, it was all here.
Your original characters, Shing, Irenushka, Katerina, and others, were real and full-blooded in substance in terms of their potency, presence and warmth and unique nature.
You remember them as a reader, the magnetism of these amazing personas lingers long after reading. I also loved the Moon Cats and Pluto...she was amazing! XD
The range of ideas so well thought out, the storehouse of imagination you invested into your world-building I have not seen the like, you're up there with writers like Dejana and Moon Sparkle and others who command the Sailor Moon Fanfiction waves, there are others, Adins and Lord Chaos and more, but girl, you can proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with these guys and be proud of this as it stands as an example of what a dream, and love of story craft and any writer with the right heart, the right attitude and the far-seeing imagination to pull it off successfully can achieve, and you most definitely did that JP-chan.
I look forward to the epilogue and I feel the research you did and love of your craft in itself is noteworthy as well. Take a bow. a monumental effort and a story that will be long remembered in the hallowed halls of fanfiction legend! *hands you a rose and s**tennou salute and a circlet of magical power and hugs* L. *winks* =^_^=
This is just an amazing story - so much detail in the world and the characters. I especially am amazed by the way you deal with the s**tennou. Their inner turmoil and confusion comes across so clearly - and while you never forget exactly who they are and what they have done you still feel a connection. It's incredible.
WISE - not much to say - I noticed a small problem with easily confused words, effect/affect and their various conjugations, aisle/isle were two I noticed. But mistakes were rare and only distracted me for a moment - your story is absolutely captivating. I'm excited for what you have planned in the next section.
|Lialyn - Wednesday August 15, 2007 at 22:17|
Amazing!!!! The most well-thought out and written story I've ever read!!!
PLEASE UPDATE!!!! I know that it just can't end like that!
In the place of a young woman, stood a queen dressed in regal garments of white and silver, a golden crown, earned and not stolen, rested upon her now alabaster locks.
I am sorry I got teary eyed because the story of beautiful creativity finally manifested and everyone is waking up from a really horrible nightmare. Oh wow with Minako or not Minako who was she? Everything is becomming more healed and restored the generals are finally comming up to snuff. That was wicked cool about Rei omg! I can't wait to see the last two chapters!
|babydee - Monday August 13, 2007 at 20:09|
oh please put the ending chapters up soon . you have done a wonderful job on this story. i have enjoyed reading this story .
Your latest chapter was absolutely great! I just read the whole story again and it follows so well. Congratulations on that, not many writers are able to hold their characters throughout so many chapters the way you've done. And that twist on chapter 29 was absolutely wonderful. I hope you update soon :) And Thank You for such a wonderful story!
That was a lot of fun to read!!!! Seriously! Ok now you need to write more, which I am sure you are doing. BRAVO!
|Anonymous - Sunday August 12, 2007 at 16:36|
Hey JP - this is shaping up to be one of the best SM epics ever, congrats and hope you win that award on Moon.net ^^
|bin82501 - Sunday August 12, 2007 at 12:36|
BRAVO.The way in which the pieces fall together was perfect. What a great twist to have "Minako" be an actress. You had me fooled completely. You know the chains concept for the senshi reminds of a description of Tatarus. The Ancient Greeks believe that those sent to Tartarus were chained together where they're linger between life and death but forced to endure watching the world they left behind for eternity. Anyway, WOW. This is the best fanfic epic,I've ever read. I've never been so absorbed in a fic of this magnitude. You captivated me with every chapter and made me hunger for more.
One question, What happened to Pluto?
She also proved to be a good catalyst throughout the story too. And don't even email me saying Minako would NEVER do that after what just occurred. Yes, it's called
make up sex. =P
Bravo! Woot! This is just what the story needed to exhale! Keep it up.
|Anonymous - Wednesday July 04, 2007 at 13:36|
This just keeps getting better and better girl! Love Shing and the scene with Kunz and Minako, magic!
|Anonymous - Monday July 02, 2007 at 15:36|
Deliciously exciting, action packed and beautiful to read. And I may say, one of the best stories around. I just wanted to point out one small thing though, '"There's *no where* [no where is one word = nowhere] to go." And with that, she left him once more, and Kunzite did not fight it.
But apart from that one lil ting, the story is "Fan-Tas-Tic!"
|bin82501 - Monday July 02, 2007 at 02:07|
I'm in shock. Reading this has been the most exhilarating five minutes of my day. I've been waiting patiently for this. I can't wait for the next chapters. You really do have an epic here, please update soon!
I still wonder about Pluto and those Elders though....
|Anonymous - Tuesday June 26, 2007 at 09:02|
I have read stories on the web about Sailor Moon and a lot of fantastic writers as far back as 1995, but yours, is the absolute best for originality, action, character development, drama and even romance, intrigue, well damnit, if its not the best thing in over 12 years, JP you are a treasure and AI is lucky to have you, please send in your next piece of genius as soon as time allows, fantiger
I can't believe I haven't left you a review. :( But anyway, I don't think there is much I can say because the story is brilliant! Your characterizations, your descriptions, this whole world you invented for us to imagine is just fantastic. I like how you jump around, leave us hanging in one scene to introduce another, it keeps me interested and wanting more. Everything you are writing is for a reason and I love that. Each one of your little decisions changes everything.
You obviously have a great editor, because I don't see any mistakes. But it could also be because I'm so into your story! ;) *wink*
I wish you the best of luck. Keep up this great talent you have for writing. -Starz
|Anonymous - Friday June 15, 2007 at 10:52|
Awesome....just how I imagined it to be, this is a great fic and its a great link between the present and Crystal Tokyo and more, well done!
aha! so it begins... awsome!!!!! please please please update soon! I love this story
|Anonymous - Saturday June 09, 2007 at 11:57|
Wow girl, you are the best! I read fan fictions all the time and you are the mistress of the SM epic! So good, so original, and as well, its all so seamless with the canon as its original in so many ways. Shing and Rin and all the Generals and Oh, sooooo gooood! its like Naoko writes through ya! hehe! More please thank you please!!! ~Doves are whispering~
|Anonymous - Monday May 28, 2007 at 03:04|
Best epic Sailor Moon story I've read in years! You're uber-good!!
This chapter is very interesting I hope to see more chapters! Betrayals layered within one over the other amongst the court. The characters of the story are so wound up that only Serenity can lead them to find peace at last. I wish Endy would wake up again. Metallica was an incarnation of Chaos so would Wiseman be a different form of Chaos and more stronger now that Beryl is losing? At first I thought that Neph was with Lita but the more the description you give which is little by little is almost resembling Rei kind of babyfeeding us that tidbit huh? Great job overall!
I'm speechless. Excitement and anticipation consumes me right now. I'm still curious about Nephrites "lover" ( I can't spell her name). She seem a lot like Rei. Anyway, I can't wait for the next chapter!
|mewmew36 - Thursday May 10, 2007 at 16:17|
omg...so totally loved this story
can't wait for more
All I can say is "Beautiful, Gorgious, Meditation!"
|Anonymous - Tuesday April 17, 2007 at 13:54|
In a single word, incredible! I think you write the most thrilling and fascinating telling of the s**tennou, original and love everything! The re-awakening, was amazing and Usagi, and her reactions to her surroundings were really well written... ^^
What a change Usagi made over since when she was last seen. She didn't cry.... she was determined to make sure the world was back to how the way things should be. I think Luna and Helios didn't want to tell Usagi about Minako because Usagi is still carrying Rini and would most certainly get upset and try to get her.
Oh I like this chapter so that is what happened that Minako had enough hope to rally up the other Sailor's to put her in crystal. coolness.
|bin82501 - Sunday April 15, 2007 at 14:50|
GaH! I don't know what to say. I always wondered what happened to Luna and Artemis. I'm still waiting for Pluto to make an official appearance. These last chapters were so exhilarating and I just can't wait for the next chapter! Please update ASAP!
its getting really interesting now. about how long do you think this entire story will be?
|bin82501 - Thursday March 22, 2007 at 19:55|
OMG. I'm so excited. I can't wait. Usually, I would have more words but...Vive le revolution!
I can't wait for the next chapter!
|Loki - Thursday March 22, 2007 at 13:46|
Superbly written Jess
WISE: another awesome offering JP, you are proving to be one of the most exciting writers on AI, and elswhere, this chapter was brilliantly constructed, the intensity, the characterisation and the beautiful flowing style, in a word -- fantastic
This story is getting more exciting and emotionally charged with every offering.
World building, structure and grammar etc, character savvy and an incredible example of the writers joining our community.
This is a class act, no doubt about that and fabulous job Lady Jessica! *hands you a silvery-gold f*ku and basket of roses* L. =^_^=
|Anonymous - Tuesday February 27, 2007 at 13:18|
Oh, you are good, you are so darn good girl, I have read stacks of fics on the Senshi and s**tennou, but this, the best of them all, and I know there is plenty more on the way.....kudos and I am a devotee! ^^
Oh no Minako! Please don't let her be tortured no more. Serenity come and claim you soldier! Kunzite go get Demando! You are gooood Jessica. Keep on writing...I'm hooked!
|bin82501 - Sunday February 25, 2007 at 23:43|
WOW. The words won't come. To say this chapter was excellent, seems like understatement but I will say I await the coup etat.
Gasp! It is here! Wow! Come on Scouts! I've been waiting to exhale. Omg this is sooo great!
|Anonymous - Monday February 19, 2007 at 16:48|
Love it, the characters, the plot, the whole darn story....its like I picked up the lost manuscripts of Naoko Takeuchi and gone to heaven! That last chapter was amazing! Keep up the great wrok, you are a wonderful writer! ^^
|bin82501 - Sunday February 18, 2007 at 02:49|
Ah what's that saying, "the enemy of your enemy is your friend". How ironic? Beryl and the s**tennou were stupid trust the Black Moon clan. Anyway, I AM LOVING this chapter. YOu really are making me love Minako in this story, she's acting more like the leader she should be portrayed as.
I'm so excited now. I was wondering what happened to Luna and Artemis. I have so many questions like who is Irinushka and what is her relation to this upcoming coup-etat? I have an idea but it's not concrete. Also, I've always wondered since the image of the senshi being chained, what happened to their sailor crystals or is it because they might be dormant, the senshi are kinda in limbo between life and death? Still, I'm lovin this and I can't wait for the revolution! Thank you for giving us another chapter!
Phew.. what a relief! Oh my word I know Shing is too scared now of trying. Daburite might use Minako against Kunzite if he doesn't get what he wants. Oh boy! Good chapter.
another great chapter!! I can hardly wait for more!!
|bin82501 - Thursday February 15, 2007 at 17:41|
Yeah what happened to Pluto? You would think it would be in her favor to protect the future but then again, Pluto was more indifferent than usual when she talked with Mamoru several chapters back... Anyway, I'm glad the s**tteneou(sp?)are starting to remember a lil bit. I hope they began to remember more about Endymion and their ex-lovers. Please update, I can't wait for the senshi to get their revenge!
Poor Minako...oh the torture. I wonder what will become of her now that she see this?
This story is getting better and better. No hope is never lost and can be found again through the children of this world like Shing. I wonder if the other girls will appear in the story. Wow, Kunzite being affected to the point that he doesn't want beryl anymore. Maybe the generals are starting to realize they need to come full circle from they did.
|Anonymous - Friday January 26, 2007 at 15:01|
Oh I love it, I really do. And I want you to know how much I admire you Jessica. You have a way of making Sailor Moon fresh and new. Putting it all together so brilliantly. I am in awe of your story style, wish I could do it. Love the characters, and how you have created a fabulous world that fits hand in glove with the original SM, as if you were asked to continue the Manga by Takeuchi Naoko. Gold stars for you! I am in love with this story soooo much. I love your work, anything you touch turns golden girl!! Keep it up! Your devoted fan.
|bin82501 - Monday January 22, 2007 at 23:15|
It's always a pleasure when you grant us another chapter. What I really love about this story is how you forshadow certain things. You keep us attached to the story. Still, I really want to know what happened to Usagi/Serenity because it was never clear whether she died or not but I guess I have to wait (grumbles)lol . Seriously, this is really becoming a great epic so PLEEASE update as soon as you can.
|Anonymous - Tuesday January 09, 2007 at 02:43|
Wow, I love how this is building up. I can feel it! Shing, I was worried for him for a moment, especially when Jadeite destroyed his token, and he might have been next, but thankfully he was not. *sighs with relief* Minako, poor thing, she has been through a lot, and I hope she will be okay, she is a fascinating character how you present her here in this fab story. Keep up the good wok and I look forward to your next chapter with great enthusiasm! ^^
|bin82501 - Sunday December 31, 2006 at 01:51|
I love this story. The image that always stick in my mind is Venus' death as this strong proud warrior. I honestly love your writing and I can't wait to find more about what happened to Usagi and what is this Serenitias. PLEEEAAASE UPDATE, you got me hungry for some more chapters.
|Anonymous - Friday December 15, 2006 at 06:24|
This is so original, I love your style, and to go where only the bold dare, you do it so well. The characters are fabulous, the ones we know and love and your new characters hold me spellbound. I like it, I love it! Plot is amazing, and did I say, I loved it! ahaha! looking forward to 16 ^^
GREAT...now the mystery is getting deeper!
|Anonymous - Tuesday November 21, 2006 at 09:52|
This is good storytelling and your style is tops. I got the 1000 years arc without a problem, as the era from Silver to Crystal Kingdoms are all connected, it is a matter of remembering how the Ginzuishou actually works to make the connections, but I want to leave it there because the readers can figure it out for themselves. This is sooo cool-kudos ^^
|yuna - Sunday November 19, 2006 at 06:46|
I'm so confused! This is definitely original - confused as I am, I still can't wait to see where this goes... Great story telling as usual.
Aww, I feel so sorry for Mina!!!! :( I hope the others are alive too and will save her but I guess I'll just have to wait and see. Another great 3 chapters though!! :)
|Anonymous - Monday November 13, 2006 at 02:52|
Hey, this is so original, yet it has all te Takeuchi magic, and for me, this means you are a truly gifted writer, to get into the heads not only of thecharacters and portray them as well as you obviously do, but really take on the style of the creator and as if she was sitting beside you giving her advice, you faithfully carry out her instructions -- that takes talent, and talent you definitely got J.P. ^^ Iwill be looking out for your next instalment!
now you have killed me... but i like the fact that you post multiple chapters at once. thanks for that
|Tesh-chan - Wednesday November 08, 2006 at 22:22|
Hi again! ^^
I just wanted to review before chapter 4 as a bookmark, because things are getting really interesting. :D Also it's almost time for me to go home, hee. *is at school* XD
The introduction of Wiseman, BEFORE Crystal Tokyo? *gasp* Not good. I like how the story's moving, it's clearly focused on what is happening as a result of the orginal trip to the future. Reminds me of DBZ. when Trunks goes to the past to warn everyone, but that changes the timeline. I like thinkin' about time travel... *grins*
Aw, I feel for the Outers. It DOES seem like they're not needed anymore because the Inners are practically invincible now. Everyone hears only about the Inners in post-Galaxia stories...
Gotta go! *has to leave, aw...* Will read more soon!!
Tesh-chan : )
You have done an excellent job, again!!! You've got a great plotline here and plenty of action as well (though I have to say I hate being left dangling, aka end of Ch,. 11, lol). I'm looking very forward to reading your next chapters!!!
|Anonymous - Tuesday November 07, 2006 at 05:37|
This story is absolutely fascinating!! You've really captured the spirit of the Sailor Senshi. Please update soon!!!!!!
|Tesh-chan - Monday November 06, 2006 at 17:09|
Hi there, jessicapendragon! ^^
Wow... I'm totally hooked just by reading the prologue. I really like your writing style- it flows well and I can picture everything clearily. Your descriptions of Usagi make her seem even more beautiful!:D You've captured her spirt, and also her friends and Mamoru. I also like that Usagi is very mature, with her worries of becoming Queen.
One thing I was confused on however, was your diologue. Sometimes I didn't catch who was speaking in a conversation because there wasn't an indication of who was speaking. But it's not too big of a deal. Oh, and this fic takes place after Usagi's Sailor Moon days, correct?
I can't wait to read more, I'm enjoying it very much! :D
Tesh-chan : )
ok yea i decided to finish it. and yea that was just rude! totally uncalled for and rude! but damn! you got me hooked!
are you kidding me!? dont do that to my second favorite couple! please dont do that! so cruel! ok im only on chapter 8 cause i have school work to focus on. thanks for giving me something to have a good break with.
WOW! I'm completely blown away by the detail and the writing style. You spared no expense with the details, I'm on the edge of my seat awaiting the next chappie! Excellent! Hugs!
|Anonymous - Monday November 06, 2006 at 01:13|
Wow! I was so reminded of Shakespear, Homer, and the Tragedians as I continued to read, you are a Millennium bard of the first, no, new order. This is absolutely riveting. I could not stop my descent into the darkness, yet it was a journey filled with so many feelings. I could not help but crying, laughing, cheering, lamenting and somehow I felt at the end, the tragic pain, the sense of loss and still I hope as I felt the salty tears fall........I cannot wait until you present us with the next part of your grand epic JP. I am sold and aching for more and could say so much more but I will say this-the characters were incredible.
