thanks for the good read. Nice complex plot with everyone having different goals...exactly as I like it.
You know, this is probably R at most...you could post on ff.net without problem. (I like to be able to send friends to my favorites list there for recs...much easier than sending them to a hundred different websites. I usually don't bother suggesting fics anywhere else (I read lots of fandoms).)
Author's Response: I'm sorry for not replying sooner. I didn't see I had more reviews. I'm glad you liked it. It was fun making things complicated so that they'd come together in the end. I'll see about posting it on FF.net. I may post it over on AO3 so it can be more accessbile.

I loved this story. It seemed like I held my breath when Nile first appeared.
Author's Response: Sorry for the late reply - I didn't know I had more comments until I received a notice this morning. I'm so happy you liked this story. I enjoyed using Nile - he and Yassen seemed to be natural competition for each other.

What a mean ending, well but at the same time it woudn´t suit the story if it ended with a complete Happy End. I enjoyed reading this ff and especially liked the ending with all questions answered, but still a hint about the future for the reader to speculate about.
Author's Response: I'm so sorry about replying late - I didn't know I had more reviews until I got a notice today. I'm glad you liked the story. Sorry about the somewhat cliff-hanger ending. It seemed like a natural place to stop. I do hope to one day write a sequel, but it's taking me a while.

Very good fic. I couldn't stop reading from beginning to end.
Author's Response: I'm so sorry in being late to reply. I got a notice of a review today and saw another five I hadn't known were here. Anyway, thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment. I'm glad you liked it. I hope to write a sequel someday, but RL has been distracting me.

Oh la la!! are you going to have a sequel? please say yes!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to comment; I do plan on a sequel. I don't know much about Russia and have started doing research this summer. I can't say exactly when I'll have the sequel going though, but there will be one.

OMG! I was simultaneously excited and sad when I saw there had been an update: excited coz we would finally know what happened, but sad because the story was over. But the ending!! WOW!!! You have to say you are doing a sequel - please!
btw, are you on fanfiction? and also in the warnings for this part 11 it says 'this part has explicit m/m sex' I'm dissapointed coz there was no hot Alex/Yassen sex (pouts)
Loved the chapter! Loved the story! And I pray to all that is good out there that you are doing a sequel!
Author's Response: I'm so sorry about the m/m warning! That was a mistake - I copied the header from another chapter and forgot to take it off. I feel so bad for getting everyone's hopes up like that ;-( I have an account on fanfiction but I don't post there - my fics are too explicit I think. I promise there'll be a sequel. I purposely wrote the epilogue to lead into it. I expect I won't get to it until summer though. Thanks so much for being such a faithful reader and leaving me such nice comments too.

OMG WOMAN THAT IS NOT AN ENDING, that is a beginning! I loved how this played out -- Yassen losing control of the situation like he did really set up each character to come into their own. I love that Nile can beat Alex so easily; it's like canon shoved that down out throats and it stays with us, through every fanon encounter
Author's Response: I'm taking lessons from you...I need a name for my arc now ;-) I expect I won't start on the sequel til summertime. Too many other story obligations right now (Flash Rider should be up soon tho). Plus, I know nothing about Russia - I have lots of research to do!
Date: 30/01/2010 12:27 Title: Chapter 11
Ack! Now that is just EVIL to end it there after all the build-up. I hate to ask this but surely there's a sequel????
Author's Response: I've had a sequel in mind from the beginning, but it's not plotted out much. I really don't know when I'd get to it...probably not until the summer.

!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that's what I call a cliffhanger! I love how you've twisted canon into your own timeline. It really works! And everything is so conflicted and emotional but it all makes sense and now I want more right now :p. Alex hair grabbing FTW!
And thanks for posting here as I can't use livejournal in the office so this makes me Very happy!
Author's Response: I think I only have one fic w/o any hairpulling ;-) one of my favorite kinks. In canon we never know who plants the bomb on John Rider's plane so I thought this worked well in my story. And unlike some writers, I'd never kill off my main characters...so not really too much of a cliffhanger other than to find out what happens to save everyone.

Ooooh I thought he'd have to rough up Alex a little, you know, to make it look more genuine :D -- brilliant chapter. Very exciting and omg that's a pretty mean cliffhanger at the end there. Alex was wonderful all the way through ... When is the next chapter?
Author's Response: I probably should have had Yassen give him a slap or two, at least a split lip, but he just couldn't bring himself to do it...more of Yassen's thoughts on it in part 10... Heck, you think this is a bad cliffhanger, wait until 10! I don't have the final chapter fully written yet, although I know what's going to happen, and I don't want to post 10 until I have 11 completed because it's such a horrible cliffie. The plan is for the week after Christmas, hopefully, so everything will be wrapped up by New Year's.
Date: 19/12/2009 12:27 Title: Chapter 9
oooh...tension is rising, I can tell the main event is going to happen soon! Will it all go to plan? Does Yassen really have another ulterior motive? Cant wait for the next chapter to find out!
Author's Response: I hope to get chapter 10 up between Christmas and New Year, and chapter 11 soon after that. I want it all posted by New Year, but like Yassen finds out, not everything goes to plan ;-)
Date: 11/12/2009 09:57 Title: Chapter 8
ooh! The tension is building, only 3 parts left of the story to go! Loved this chapter and I can't wait for the next!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to comment - I'm very glad you like it. I'm having fun writing it too. Part 9 should be up next Friday. It's a bit longer than this one too.
