thing I have ever done.
This story is perfection. It takes amazing characterizations that
are so true and yet so different and mixes in an always interesting
plot. The story makes the reader always aware of the horrors of what
is happening but the reasons how these things came to be. You are
understanding but horrified and always forced to see both sides.
It is the best X-men fanfic I have ever read and possibly even the
best fanfic I have ever read. I would highly recommend it to anyone
mature enough to read it.
