Reviews For A Brave New World
Reviewer: 1918EC (Signed) · Date: October 06, 2010 03:17 AM · On: Patient Zero

*Heavy sigh*  I'm not sure what to say right now...Who the hell was it in Edward's dream (and in the forest that day) that said 'Hello, Edward. I'm so glad we found you. I've heard a lot about you and your bloodsucking family." (?) You gave us some clues for your story, but I must be dense because they didn't help me figure out anything...Why is Edward 'patient zero', or more importantly, why is he 'patient zero' and how did he become infected?  I think that will be a key point...What ever happened to him had to be a trade off or something to keep Bella safe; maybe even his whole family...He thinks it's still 1918, that's so weird...Well I'm just glad his 'family' found him...I love the great escape they are planning, I hope it works...But I wonder, if Edward is a carrier of this 'virus', how are they going to keep him away from other people, he will just infect them, right? What about Bella, this is going to be so hard for her...I can't wait to see what happens when Edward sees Bella...And bless Jake's little dog heart for helping with the rescue (sorry, not a big Jacob fan even if he is a nice guy)  Can't wait to read more...Dying to know if Edward will get his 'life' back and his memories...

I think they should tell him. It's probaly going to be a lot worse if he finds out last minute under the worst circumstances. That way, if Paul and Oscar do come back, he will be prepared and informed.

Author's Response:

Thanks for the review. Yes, it probably would make him more prepared...

I'm back, finally the laundry is done! :)  Great chapter, but my mind is a swirling mess of confusion! In fact, my mind is completely blown away by this chapter! What in the world happened, or is happening to Edward? He seems to have some sort of amnesia...If he thinks he's Edward Masen, then everything about his (life) as Edward Cullen is non-existent?...Which means he doesn't remember his 'family' and more importantly, Bella...I noticed he dreamt of her in the hospital, but doesn't know who she is...I'll bet the melody in his head was the lullaby he composed for Bella...Holy crap, he has to remember! I also noticed that he has flashes or dreams of memories (besides Bella) that are Edward Cullen based (I hope that made sense) And how is he not a vampire anymore? I need answers! Ok, I'm freaking out, I need to calm down...You really know how to pull us in...I have to say that you are a talented story teller, I'm completely invested in your story and your characters...Off I go to the next chapter :)

I don't think that they should keep things from him.   I think that in the future that he may need to know about his life as a vampire and about the supernatural world.  He knows they are keeping things from him and if they keeping it up he may not trust them for much longer.  Oh and Prudeward could use a few lemons in his life.  Maybe he would loose that prudish pucker he has.

Author's Response:

LOL Prudeward... that's great...XD

Don't worry there are lemons in the near future...

Oh my! That was hot. This story is so good.  Tell Edward?  I don't know. I trust you. this is such a DIFFERENT and entertaining story.  Thanks for writing it.

Author's Response:

Thank you!!! I'm really enjoying writing it!!! There's more hotness to come... lol

So she agrees to marry him while she and the others are lying to him?  Hmmm...

Author's Response:

I agree with you. It doesn't seem right that she accepted his proposal without being honest with him.

Reviewer: 1918EC (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 11:56 PM · On: Wait...WHAT?!

Hey there! I don't even know if you'll see this review, but if you do, sorry it's so long...I usually leave reviews after every chapter of a story I'm reading, but I just stumbled across your story today, and I can not stop reading! I love it, it's freaking me out, but in a good way! I'm going to keep reading it, I hope you update often... Just a few quick thoughts before I continue to devour more chapters, (I'm not getting my laundry and house cleaning done very fast today!)  :) I think it just clicked for Alice about the visions of Edward with a pounding heart (obviously his memories of Chicago in 1918) I wonder when she'll pick up on that...Where the Hell is Edward? What happened to him? Maybe I missed something because I'm reading too fast between loads of laundry! :O  I know Bella had to get on with her life thinking Edward was dead, but I cringe just reading about her being with Aidin...I pray that Edward is okay, that he still wants Bella (I'm sure he still loves her, maybe he got the wrong impression of what happened that caused him to leave, I'm still fuzzy on the leaving part, like I said I may be reading too fast and missed something), and that she still wants him...I'm pretty sure she still loves Edward, but I'm thinking it would be hard to just tell Aidin, 'Well my old boyfriend isn't dead, I still love him, thanks for being there for me when I was down, but now I'm going to go back to my life with him, see ya'  Nope, life isn't that easy, is it? As much as we might want it to be...All I want from your story (besides enjoying reading it) is for Edward and Bella to each find out the truth/reasons/explanations/etc. about everything...What a mess, huh? Those two have both been living (?) under a delusion and a skewed vision of the truth for so long...Oh geez, I'm rambling...I just want Edward and Bella to find their way back to each other, work things out, and have their HEA...I don't want much do I? I really love your story so far, but I'm begging you, please give E/B their HEA, they should be together! Aidin will get over it, hey I just thought maybe Sarah could be there for him; that sounded pretty cruel didn't it? Sorry, I'm biased obviously. ;) Well, off I go to read more, your story has pulled me in and I can't wait to see what happens next! :) One last word (s) I want you to know that I will cry if all Bella wants to do is know that Edward is alive and safe, but ends up staying with Aidin; I won't hold it against you because you are the author, this is your vision after all, and I will have read a good story. Please don't hate me because I'm so silly :)  This is part of the reason I don't always leave reviews, I just can't say a few words...I'm really too wordy...  :) 

Author's Response:

Wow. What a great review. I'm a big Edward and Bella fan, so don't be afraid about that. As you probably have already noticed, my story deviates a lot from the series. However, I try to stay true to the characters and Edward and Bella's relationship. Thanks for the great review.

Reviewer: sagajunkie (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 09:56 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

Yes, they should tell him about Werewolves and Vampires and Shapeshifters.  Honesty is a good thing.  If they tell him what he was/is and what they think happened to him, maybe he'll understand the fever/chills better.  He is what he is.  He can't get away from that.  My hope is that Edward's body overrides the werewolf crap and that he returns to being a full vamp with all his original powers but a better understanding of the world around him and of Bella and his desires for her.

But, the trust and honesty goes both ways.  Edward seems to be remembering things and needs to let Jasper, Alice, or someone know so everyone can be on the same page.  

Love the story by the way.   

Author's Response:

Thanks so much for the review. I agree with you that trust goes both ways.

Reviewer: JavaMasta (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 09:38 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

YES, tell him about vampires and werewolves!  He obviously knows that the Cullens are different already.

Author's Response:

Thanks for the review and I agree with you. However, telling him is easier said than done. How can they tell him about supernatural creatures without jeopardizing his sanity?

Reviewer: evelynvm29 (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 08:39 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

It was a great chapter, I liked Sam's Pov.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much. I like looking at the story from different characters points of view.

Reviewer: stephsmith (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 08:13 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

I totally think they should tell Edward everything.  They're trying to protect him, but that's what Bella always got mad at him about-him keeping things secret from because he thought he was protecting her. 

Author's Response:

I think that they are worried that Edward's mind won't be able to handle it. Before coming to the lake, he was catatonic. They might be afraid that telling hiim will cause him to revert back. Telling him is a huge risk.

Thanks for the review :)

Reviewer: twihardacctant (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 07:34 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

What a great story!!!! I have only been reading fan fiction for a few weeks and can say this is a really good AU story.... Can't wait to read more!!! As for your question I think they have to tell him the truth at some point because he is getting close to remembering it himself. It should be Bella that tells him a in a slow sensitive manner I think....before he turns into a crazed werewolf- vampire science experiment....

Author's Response:

Thanks so much.

I think telling him is easier said than done though. How can you tell someone that they were a vampire and potentially could be a werewolf in the future?

Reviewer: amberdee1219 (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 07:15 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

You know...I think that maybe they should tell him before he gets too shocked from this oscarmares, because at some point he will put two and two together.  And I couldn't imagine he wouldn't be pissed and lose trust in them if he realized they kept it from him like that. That is just a thought.

Author's Response:

Thanks so much for the review.

I agree with you. Edward is big on control and trust. If he finds out on his own, he will definitely be beyond angry.

Reviewer: IssaBissa (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 04:57 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

interesting chapter.

Author's Response:

Thank you!

Reviewer: dazzled eyes (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 04:51 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

I am glad the Pack has seen the urgency to find Paul and Oscar now that the illness has made its way past the borders of La Push. Sam's POV really did a good job at conveying his regrets in dealing with Oscar and helping Paul get past his grief. 

I am happy that Edward is starting to remember more about what happened with Paul and Oscar and the threats they made to get his cooperation. It was good that Edward demanded that Jacob tell him why he was avoiding him. I love how Edward is trying to hold on to what is good in his life by acknowledging his own feelings and asking Bella to marry him. I enjoyed Bella's reaction and passionate acceptance.

I think the family, preferably Carlisle, should tell Edward the truth about his previous existence as a vampire and about the shape shifters and werewolves before he remembers and feels betrayed by those close to him. I believe it will help him understand and trust the Cullens more and allow him to put the pieces of these flashbacks together easier.

This story just gets better with every chapter. Please update soon. 

Author's Response:

Thanks for being such a great reviewer. I think that being honest is important but telling him about what he used to be is easier said than done. They're afraid that he won't be able to handle the news and they would lose the ground that they'd gained with him.

Reviewer: AnnaWinters (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 04:33 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

Of caurse they have to tell edward, or maybe after bella is pregnant or something XD

Author's Response:

lol Thanks of the review :D

Reviewer: TwilightMelissa (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 04:21 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

yay! love it! i am glad that we are finally beginning to understand everything that has happened to Edward, im so excited for the next chapter! <3

Author's Response:

Thank you. Every chapter from here on out should add another piece to the puzzle.

Reviewer: milene (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 03:50 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

tell him!!! tell him!!!

I wan't to see Edwards reaction!

Another awesome chapter-)

Good job

Author's Response:

lol Thank you.

Reviewer: fnmom68 (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 03:36 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

Not sure where you're taking the story in the long run, but yes I think they should tell him.  Otherwise, if he doesn't change back into one (and I would prefer to be surprised on this point) then he is missing a major part of his life.  He needs to feel that the Cullens are truly his family, and he won't have as deep of a bond with them if he doesn't know about his former life with them.  Just a thought.

Great chapter.  Loved it. 

Author's Response:

Thank you for the review. I think that it's important for him to know who he truly is as well. But it is a huge risk for them to tell him because it might be more than he can handle.

Reviewer: delilah69 (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 03:19 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

i think that it could be dangerous if memories keep coming up out of no where he would be more upset that they didn't tell him about the mythical creatures around him!

Author's Response:

Thank you for the review. I think that it is dangerous not to tell him but also dangerous to tell him.

Reviewer: shookie (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 02:35 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

Yes I think they should be 100% honest with him...But I think Bella should be the one to do it. She used to get extremely upset whenever she thought Edward was hiding anything or not telling the whole truth. By her not doing so it make her a hypocrit

Author's Response:

I think it's hypocritical as well although I completely understand why they are afraid to tell him. He's been so unstable that they are afraid that he'll completely lose it if he finds out. It is a huge risk telling him.

Reviewer: Camilla (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 01:44 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

Yes, of course, as the situation is dangerous and not knowing could make things even more dangerous by mistake.

Author's Response:

Thanks for the review. I think that telling him is also dangerous. Before coming to the lake, Edward was catatonic. So, they're probably worried that he will revert to that state.

Reviewer: Dulcinea21bella (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2010 01:31 PM · On: The Calm Before the Storm

Gah!  I literally squeal when I get the alert for this story.  I think about it all of the time.  This was amazing.  I am so happy for them!

I think maybe they should tell Edward.  He has a right to know.  Maybe if he heard the truth it would trigger some more memories and help him to fill in the blanks. 

I am just so enamored with this story!!  I can't wait to read more.  I hope Bella and Edward don't wait to get married.  THey need to use their time wisely.  This was briliant!

Author's Response:

lol Thanks so much for the review. I think about this story all the time too. I'm constantly writing it in my head to the detriment of everything else. For example, I should be writing a paper for one of my graduate courses right now, but instead I'm responding to reviews lol

Again, thanks for the review. You're great!

Reviewer: amandam4434 (Signed) · Date: September 30, 2010 06:36 PM · On: Fear, Guilt, and Illness

im confused as hell

Author's Response:

It gets clearer as you read through the chapters. The first few chapters are the set up for everything else. Thanks for the review. I hope that things get clearer for you.

Reviewer: Zoey0223 (Signed) · Date: September 29, 2010 05:01 PM · On: A Change is Gonna Come

exciting!!!! want so much to keep reading please dont make us wait so long

Author's Response:

The chapter is waiting to be beta'd so it'll be up soon. Thanks for the review and I'm glad that you are enjoying it :D
