Review of chapter "Hail to the God-King" from Rune
Review:
You left Richard the Cowardly Wolf alive, Why?!

LKH took a good heroine and turned her into a slut, thanks for killing her.
Comments from author:
It's not the fact that she's sexually promiscuous that's annoying. Being sexually promiscuous is fine as long as it's safe, sane, and consensual. Anita's sexuality is none of these things. What annoys me is that she's being held up as this sexually liberated woman when describing her as sexually liberated is at best a cruel joke. If Anita were a woman who was actually in charge of her own sexuality, has sex as and when she wants, with whom she wants, that would be fine. But she's NOT in charge of her own sexuality. She's a victim. The ardeur strikes and she literally must have sex in order to save her own life and the lives of the people she cares about.

That's only the first in the laundry list of ways in which Anita is regularly forced into having sex, though. There's plenty of others: Anita gets raped because of Raina’s Munin (though it's not called rape because apparently when a ghost-werewolf spirit thing is riding your body forcing you to have sex, that's different?), Anita is forced to have sex to heal her Triumvirate. Even her relationship with Jean-Claude begins because of coercion. The first time they have sex? When she's completely emotionally broken and devastated after Richard killed and ate Marcus. If Jean-Claude had any sense of decency, he would have left to grieve in peace. She regularly refuses to have sex and then ends up having it anyways. Micah rapes her in the shower in one of his first appearances, but it's not treated as rape afterwards for some reason. I could go on.

That said, I also personally dislike the character of Anita Blake. I think she's a hypocritical asshole, a female misogynist, she gets a pass on allowing a serial killer to live because he's useful to her simply by virtue of being the "designated hero," and she's got shades of God-mode Sue. Then again, I'd imagine that the never ending stream of rape and otherwise unwanted sex she's subjected to, often at the hands of her own powers (which she was manipulated into receiving, of course) but not always, probably has something to do with her poor disposition.

Review of chapter "Hail to the God-King" from anouk
Review:
I am so glad to have found this. :) "Gaak" was my personal favorite here. And the "no.. we're good" bit. I would even bother picking up Anita Blake books again if Illyria or Illyria-like character was introduced to the story and cleaned St.Louis of the weakest and most annoying individuals there. *sighs* Would be nice.

Review of chapter "Return of the Queen" from SpinelessPunster
Review:
damn near the best Anita crossover I've ever read. we all need less emo and more "gaack!" in our necro-Furry-philia stories.

Tres ouch.

Review of chapter "Hail to the God-King" from (Current Donor)MaxGSandeman
Review:
Brilliant punch line. You should add to your warnings, about not eating and reading.
This reminded me about a fight between King Arthur and the Black Knight, from "Mont Python and the Holy Grail". Arthur has just cut off the knight's arms, when the knight says, "it's just a flesh wound". Just as funny.

Review of chapter "Hail to the God-King" from WhiteWolf
Review:
I like Evil Illyria, but the only problem with evil Illyria is that at the end somebody has to stop her.

Review:
I love this. The first chapter was good but this one.... Anita Blake characters trying to solve things the way they always do. Go Illyria!

Review of chapter "Hail to the God-King" from Sadfru
Review:
to make this truly horrifying add sound affects of his bits landing on the floor, maybe heavily descriptive account of the torn and heavily bruised removed organ as it splatters on the ground...I'm gonna go throw up now...(In a whineing voice) couldn't you have taken an arm...maybe a leg?! Leave mister happy out of this! :)
