This is a great continuation to Shock, bat. Although I'm still not fond of your portrayal of Marko, I think your storyline is very intriguing and it kept me reading straight through. I have to say I never expected the interaction between Ruby and David and found it a little sad that she would toss up between Marko and David like that. She seemed to upset to be leaving Marko but at the same time to willing to fall back on David. I'd like to know how much of that is the blood bond and how much of that is actual feeling, for Ruby at least. Must read the next part! Good job, bat!

This story ended up being very different to the draft you sent to Carla and myself. I’m a little surprised at the ending (am I right in thinking there will be another in the series?). For me, Ruby really loved Marko, but what she had for David had been created by the bond they shared. She loved Marko as a human, she actually fell in love with him, whereas with David, she simply used their bond to tap into his feelings... it feels to me like Ruby’s feelings for David came into existence because of their bond, rather being something that has been bubbling away for awhile. Of course, David’s feelings for Ruby have been bubbling away… I just don’t feel that Ruby will love him, not like she does with Marko anyway.
This is not a flame or a criticism, just my viewpoint on their relationship. I really hurt for Marko who loves Ruby. Not saying that David doesn’t either, but... let’s boil it down to l33t: Marko/Ruby OMG! OTP!!11!!! They’re meant to be together. So write another fic and fix it, damnit! *grins*
Enjoyed immensely. Anything that makes me review must really be eye-catching, because I’m shockingly lazy with reviews now. Don’t take my Ruby/Marko obsession too personally, remember, your fic brought me to the LB list, where I met my best friend. It’s got a lot to answer to, and I do feel like I’ve invested a lot in M/R’s relationship.
Thank you for posting. You know I love this story. Even if I’m lax at telling you so.

Yeah it took a detour; you're right here will be a third part... I just had to break it somewhere to start that third part. A lot of things I've sent you in the past will be worked in to the next part. I just have to get there. But it's nice because a lot of it is already written.
You're right: Marko and Ruby were true love. And they may still be! I'm all highly amused I created my first OTP! And I'm not gonna say whether Ruby really will fall for David or not yet... you'll have to see what happens. ;)
I'm just so amused at the OTP thing... like I've never created one before.
Thank you! It means much to me that you enjoy and appreciate it! And Louise did good! I'm glad to know that as well, it means a lot to me!

I want to be bitten by Paul. He's cute. *giggles* It really amused me to see mine and Carla's names in this chapter. Especially since we've talked about going to Santa Cruz together quite a few times... though I think Hawaii will be our next vacation. Thanks for the reference. It's been so long since I've read this series I started with Miss Louise and moved on. Big review coming at the end of the story, but I had to leave a comment on this chapter!
Author's Response: Paul will be over to your flat shortly. ;)

i really like this story! I'm not keen on the fact that Marko and Ruby split, but i'm a HUGE Marko fan, so anything with Marko getting the shitty end of the stick i dont like. But this is a brilliant story.
Author's Response: Well, you won't like the end of this part, but thanks very much for your comment!
