Review of chapter "Take Me Out to the Black" from bluekatt
That was a fabulous story!! I loved the idea of it all and can't believe someone didn't think of this sooner. Absolutely brilliant. And I love the idea of River getting her abilites from Sylar and Claire. Awesomeness all around!!!

Review of chapter "Take Me Out to the Black" from MusesInspire
This is just so amazing! I love it!
I'm a longtime fan of Heroes and I just could never wrap my head around the Peter/Claire (Uh, YUCK?) pairing and Syler/Elle just didn't really work for me.
This? - this was freakin' AWESOME!
I love the little details, like Sylar 'punching' the guy that was messing with Claire and how Sylar just 'got' Claire, knew what she wanted... but then, after centuries together, who WOULDN'T understand their partner, you know? But also how they just accepted each other. And the twist at the end?? - TAM!!! OMG! LOVE IT!
I'm totally reccing this! :-D

Review of chapter "Take Me Out to the Black" from Weaver
Interesting idea. The pairing's rather odd but I suppose that it can be at least partly explained by the amount of time that's passed. I figure that after a few centuries it's possible for old hate to fade, particuarly if the object of said hate has changed his ways, and for the loneliness to get pretty unbearable, so that when you finally find a familar face you're not too fussed about who it is, and things go from there. After all, in their case theres plenty of time for a relationship to develop.

I hope you get inspired to write a sequel or perhaps even turning this into a series.

Interesting- once a reader manages to get over the fact that you've paired Claire and Sylar together, after he tried to kill her and everyone she loves, many times over. I didn't see the end coming- and like the idea of this being the root of River's powers.

Review of chapter "Take Me Out to the Black" from mrpage
Loooooved it! You have just got to do more of this verse. If Syler and Claire are immortal (which it kinda looked like), why wouldn't they still be around somewhere when Simon and River are alive? Grandma and Grandma see the wanted posters and get pissed, yeah I can see that. Maybe Gabriel goes back into to Syler mode, but with a better purpose than gaining powers. More please!!!!!!!!!

Sylar and Claire are supposed to be immortal, yes, and they are still around during Simon and River's time. I've thought about writing something else, a follow-up that deals with the War and the reavers and everything else, but I don't know when I'm going to get the time to do it. I'll think about it - I may open it up as a challenge if I don't get the time to write it within the next few weeks, m'kay?

Review of chapter "Take Me Out to the Black" from lindiel
Wow. Claire and Sylar? How did that happen? At first I was thinking maybe the guy was Kensai, you know because of the regeneration thing, or possibly Peter because of how he absorbs powers and he's been in contact with both Claire and Kensai, but Sylar? I totally did not see that coming.
You've got me curious now, how come he's still alive? And married to Claire instead of trying to kill her? Now that would be a story to tell. Did he get regenerative powers along with being cured from that virus at the end of S2, because of it being made from Claire's blood? Or did he do the head-sliced-open, brain-scooped-out thing with Kensai, or maybe Peter and take their powers? And that still doesn't explain why he's now a kinda-sorta good guy.
Anyway, loved it, hope you write a prequel. If you do and you can't post it here, please let us know where you do post it.

So, the Sylar/Claire pairing – of all the guys on Heroes, I see the most of his character in River, and since I’m trying to set it up that they’re her family… There’s this edge of crazy and a bit of ruthlessness that just seems to be common to both Sylar and River. I also wanted to have a guy that has some of the powers that River does, like the precognition, which would rule out Kensai. I can’t stand the Kensai/Adam character, so I’d like to think that Sylar obtained his longevity via Kensai. Also, Sylaire is just my personal preference. Re: prequel – I hadn’t really intended to write one, I meant this to be more of a one-shot. If you’re interested in Sylar being semi-good, check out the sylar_claire community on Livejournal – there’s a bunch of fics there that show the transition from complete baddie to being more of a good guy in love with Claire. Thanks for reading and commenting! :)
