wonderful. i quite enjoyed the ending. it was a breath of fresh air.
I've read this story so many times and I have never gotten sick of it. It is so beautifully written. It is in my opinion one of the best written stories about the Silver Millenium ever. Marshangel you are amazing, and I sincerely mean that.

amazing. love to see a sequal
I can honestly say that this is one of the best fan fiction I've ever read. The entire story is simply marvelous and simply well-done. I'd give it a five-star rating.

You definitely outdid yourself with this one. Ive been waiting to see how you would end it and I am happy to say that i am very satisfied. I was worried that it would just end with the kingdome being destroyed and Serenity and Endymion dying, but you really but a heartfelt touch on it. Its a different spin and well worth the wait.
Wow, after such a long journey this story has reached its end, and I must say, it ended on a good note. Great way to end the story, it provided hope for us readers and though Endymion and serenity ...well you know (I dont want to ruin it for others) -the audience is left content. Aside from a few speeling and grammatical errors I love this story, especially the last chapter. It left me in tears and I stayed at my computer re-reading this story completely moved.
Kayla chavi said it best, "The ending doesn't always have to be happy, it just has to have hope," and you did exactly that. As sad as it is to see you leave the world of SM fandom you left us a great story many will and have already enjoyed. Good luck in your future endeavours, ja ne.

I had originally thought Falling Away was going to be a prequel to Touch, but once I realized this story was to stand on its own, I have to admit, I loved it. As usual, you've managed to portray emotions beautifully. I've enjoyed all of your stories since you began writing and I think this is a wonderful story to end your fanfic career with. Good luck to you! Hope to find your published books at the store one day!

Wow...interesting chapter, the tension is just off the charts now, but I noticed something interesting.
During Serenity and Ami's conversation on Pluto, we learn that Endymion's father has already died. At the end of the chapter however, it was stated through Endymion's thoughts that "now that his father was confined to the bed" that he was taking over every responsibility. The way the chapter concludes with the 'personal feeling' that Enydmion had that was ominous, ~implies~ that he felt Serenity give birth to their child or soemthing of the sort(to me at leasy), but as we know from earlier, Serenity is still pregnant *after* the king dies.
So anywho, am I just overanalyzing again or did you purposely do that to throw us off? That's very clever if you did!! That vagueness at the end of the chapter was perfect. If I'm right about the time sequences though, I think that Endymion's ominous feeling was about his father's death--not Serenity giving birth. (That *would* be something momentous because then there would be an even greater amount of conflict and would pressure Endymion to marry and produce an heir with Beryl.) That pain he felt in his dreams was likely Serenity's, but just means that his strong connection to her allowed him to feel her current state. I also thought it was good that Sailor Pluto was briefly discussed rather than introduced. Whether or not you meant to do that or didn't want to write about her, works well for the story because Pluto would be privy to many things given her powers and abilities.
On that note, there are so many possibilities because I think Endymion has already made a connection with his child even if he doesn't know it. I'm curious too, about whether or not the senshi or Serenity have thought about the child's magical abilities. If they mean to hide her, she needs to be raised by people familiar with magic in case she does something beserk with powers she might have inherited from either parents. The senshi afterall, were very surprised at Endymion's abilities, especially in teleportation and they don't know that in Endymion's family, they can immediately recognize their own children. The dreams Serenity has been having about the desolate moon makes me think that the child is provoking those images somehow...*shrug*
As for Serenity, I don't know if she can survive letting go of her child. On one of my guesses as to what would happen, I imagined that children from Endymion's family were different and formed an immediate bond with the parents. I think that came from watching Charmed and how when Piper was pregnant, her child shielded her from anything harmful and afterwards, was able to form a protective dome barrier around him away from people he didn't like. Isn't that funny? Anyways, whatever happens, I'm really looking forward to it.
