I can't stop reading! I've downloaded all the chapters so far, so I can read them at home (nope, I don't have Internet at home, not using it often enough), and I try not to read too much at a time to keep the pleasure lasting, but it's just too great!!! You are a wonderful writer, and I want to say a very big BRAVO and thank you to schiotka for patiently translating this delightful story, and to JacquelineMonaie too for her great editing work, so now we can all read it! :heart:

Still, this is a story, that's touching on so many levels...

but it's drawing back painful memories and feelings of mine.

thus i'm not able to finish reading. I'm sorry.

Nevertheless it's beautiful.

I have to admit that, for many personal reasons, I didn't stay updated with this awesome story.
I can say that this is my favorite original story in the whole internet <3 Including pages like fanfiction, etc.
I follow it since years now, but I stayed in chapter 24. 
Today I had the chance to look for it and I started to read with a smile on my face but I didn'y expect this!!! 
How the f*uck am I suppost to go home now? I look like some kind of lunatic right now and I'm at uni!!
This is the most awesome yet disturbing plot twist ever! Ooohh myyy poor Niv my baby </3 
You do such a perfect work, full of passion. I have real feelings for these characters... how did you do that? 
You are a wizard, my friend.

God, this is so exciting! I can't wait to see how Nivan reacts! I feel sorry for him but also I'm happy that Rav isn't actually dead :)
Keep up your great work, this is an amazing story <3
Pasadera Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I really like this chapter; it's possibly my favourite of all :) I like the growth that Marcin shows throughout (I love him, but honestly, he was kind of a dick in previous chapters), and I love his rare triumphs over Nivan (like when Niv finally snapped and admitted to being a hacker. omg. Best moment of my life. Marcin's response was so mature and composed- it was beautiful to read). 

Something I find interesting, though, is the different way I interpret Nivan's character in the Polish and English versions (I usually Google Translate the new Polish chapters because I'm impatient and have too much free time xD). I don't know why, but in the Polish version, Nivan seems far more threatening. More menacing. For example, in the conversations between him and Rott, I actually get scared. I don't feel that in the English version; he's more ... not timid, but he just seems like a nicer person. Like, in the Polish version he seems really comfortable with the dangerous life he leads, but in the English translation sometimes I feel like he's worried or even scared. Haha, I can't really explain it, it's probably just because I can't completely understand the Polish so I jump to conclusions xD

This chapter was awesome! Marcin was so beautiful in his actions and speeches. Alex, thank you for putting some constructive thoughts in Nivan 's head! ^^
I also wanted to say a few words about the translation. This is going better and better, mistakes are now very slight and the chapters are nice to read. Thanks to the translator for alowing us to be able to enjoy your amazing work and characters.

LyNuth Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014  Student General Artist
I felt waiting for this new chapter was long, just because of my curiosity... but NOW I will just go insane! Hahaha but I know it takes time to translate, and I am forever thankful that they take the time to do it! 

This was SUCH A GOOD TWIST! I was not expecting something like that, at all (even though some people say they did). I think it makes it very interesting and puts a lot into the actual threat behind this beautiful boys. 

This is getting very interesting. I am very excited to find out about everything that is still unclear. That says this is a good story.

Best wishes for you, and hope to see more of your wonderful art.

What?! WHAT?!?! Can you repeat yourself and tell me who was standing there again? :faint:
Oh my God, Nivan and Marcin! :nuu: They gotta watch out for this!  Time to haul ass out of here! 
BatInAHat Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014
Oh my goodness :iconcannotevenplz:

Poor Batman T^T

I actually thought Rav was probably alive.
Nivan you better protect Marcin :stare:

As always each chapter is so rich in depth and detail
I try to be patient but always want the next chapter as soon as possible OTL
Keep up the fantastic work and I look forward to seeing what happens next time.
xmilax Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
I never really understood why Winter was so interested in Marcin but I guess this is somewhat an explanation. Great story and plot twist! The only thing I don't like is how fast I read the chapters and how long I have to wait 'till the next one...
Well, the story is worth it, keep it up!

Oh my god, amazing as always XDDDDDDD Such an intense chapter; I was almost sweating by the end! And that cliffhanger.. why.. why do you do this to us? D: Thank you to everyone involved in writing, translating and editing this story, we appreciate all the work that goes into it. Marcin is the best character ever. I love him so much. Really :3
And Kyoux is the best author, hehe~ 
I'm looking forward to the next chapter :D *party* 
Adelphobates Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2014
Read it! Love the turn the story took with Rav being reintroduced as alive but not so well.  I swear that I will not read this until there are at least 3 chapters piled up. Reading one pice at a time is destroying my mind... I even went so far as checking the deviant art site more times a day than I check my facebook. It is an addiction. THIS IS BAD so I will wait (not too long, I hope for 3 more chapters).
P.S. You still are a devious human! Have you ever heard of gorge rr martin, the one that wrote game of thrones. You two are alike in thinking. I liked Batman why did you killed him( yeah i get he was a catalyst for Niv going home but... you killed a bunny!!! bunnies are the sign of peace… <- if you do not believe me, science says so! )?! Please do not kill Marcin's snake :< he is too cute.
Anyway hope to read soon and have a nice day

Thank you for writing this story~! And your editor is wonderful as well ^^.

Damn it, here I was waiting for that sooo long and now I think I have to wait even longer. That cliffhanger is really the worst ...
It always made me wonder why Winter was so after Marcin so sometimes I really thought about some connection to sonia, but this made me speechless xD Heart Heart 
You need to continue. I mean you really have to. Not sometime but really NOW ... Waaaah! 
I think I'm dying with that cliffhanger here.

Just so at the sideline, it's lovely how Marcin won Nivan over. How he manipulated him. I'm curius at how Nivan will tell Marcin about his past and what happened there with Rav.
AND I really can't wait for Niv and Rav to meet up I think I've fainted. 
Azazelleeblis Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2014
wow this is such a mindfuck!!! amazing story oh I hope it doesn\t end dramatic cause it would break my heart :s
CaptainSpaceFucker Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Even if the spaces and tense changes are part of the artist's original vision, the piece is still quite full of punctuation errors. There are a lot of missing possessive apostrophes, indentations (every line of new dialogue should be indented, and so should the start of every new paragraph), and there are various issues with the capitalization of different words after a dialogue tag. Also, such words as "straightaway" are actually two words, "straight away" is the correct version. This happens a few times in the piece with other phrases.

It's important to edit carefully and make sure the story is correct in its punctuation so as not to distract from the piece itself; there's a note in the forward that says "Ignore the errors and focus on the story," but more often than not the lack of errors is what enables the reader to focus on the story. I hope the editor takes that advice to heart; it's something I've really learned a lot about after working on a literary magazine for several years. :)

Anyway, best of luck with the rest of the translations! I hope this was at least a bit helpful.

I've waited so long for this chapter, and now that I see you've created such a cliffhanger I can't possibly be patient. Amazing! :D
Really, thank you for writing such an amazing story. This is one of very few pieces that keep me interested and on the edge, always hungry.
I love you character development, how they change throughout the story and how they react to each other. It's very easy to connect to them and be captivated by them.
With each chapter the plot thickens without losing its intensity, and I can't possibly see what will you come up with next! So just keep it coming! \(^_^)/ :D
