Wow. Rufus was literally just shoved onto the party. Makes sense game-wise, not so much in literature. Silly Avalanche, they went through without grinding the increase their Materia power.

That was a nice happy ending. Congrats for being able to stick with writing this story for a whole seven years!
This was a great story. I really enjoyed reading it.

Congratulation on finishing this story, I enjoyed every word of it, even if I joined only a few chapters before the ending. I love that you didn't let Advent Children influence you, and wrote using only the games plot. I must admit I didn't noticed as much plot holes as you said, but I'm still unfamiliar with the idea of killing poor Could so easily. But never mind, you wrote an excellent story, one of the best FF7 fanfictions EVER, and I'm thankful for that. May you write more stories good like this!

Wahh! It took you seven years to finish this? That takes determination and patience. I would've probably scrapped the story long ago but kudos to you for persevering and completing it congrats
:D:D:D:D Love rufti

Yay! Rufus is back in his rightful place and he and Tifa are starting out on a new leaf.
I didn't mention this earlier but I love your portrayal of Reno having a daughter that was killed when Sector 7 fell.
Can't wait for the Epilogue!
| ZizziHungarian 7/13/10 . chapter 37
That was a nice little chapter after such a long wait. I'm happy because Rufus and Tifa are still like each other even after the truth was revealed. I'm sad because only the epilouge is back now, but I'm waiting to read that too!
| Logan 7/9/10 . chapter 2
Body double is a interesting idea, hm.
| 0TerrorInABox0 1/15/10 . chapter 36
Wow, I think this is the longest fanfic I have ever read; it's like the size of a small novel!
Not that that's a bad thing though, this is an awesome fic! :D
This chapter, my favorite part was getting the rare opportunity to see Rufus acting human and 'worshiping the porcelain god', heheh.
Can't wait for your next update!
| Harteramo 1/12/10 . chapter 36
Looking foward to reading more keep the great work coming.
| ZizziHungarian 1/11/10 . chapter 36
I just couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the update mark near the title of this story! But it worth the waiting, zhis chapter was as good as all the previous... The drunken Rufus was adorable at the beginning, and now I'm really curious if Reeve will give his kingdom for a Shinra?
| Kelana-ti 12/18/09 . chapter 35
Wow. This story is great. I love how you write Rufus, and go into detail on the aftermath of Meteor. And that you have reporters involved, not many fanfic authors do that. Your version of the Turks is good, and pretty realistic. I like how you mentioned that Turks know the gray between white and black well. The fact that you killed Cloud and Vincent made me a little upset, but now I see how it was nessicary for the plot. I can't wait for the next chapter!
Oh, and congratulations on getting married and having a baby, even though that happened some time ago. :D

I read your whole story in nearly three weeks, but I say it was woth it. It just like a real novel, long, exciting and wriiten with a good style. At first I thought your idea about killing Cloud at the beginning was strange, but after I befriended with the situation, I leaned to love your story. I just adore the idea Rufus having a body-double, and I like how can you cross the lines around that.I like that everything is connection with everything and how the secrets slowly revealed. My favourite scenes were when Lucretia died, the chocobo race and when Rufus left Junon at the beginning. Your OC's are good too, they fit perfectly in the world of Finaly Fantasy 7, I couldn't find a single Mary Sue between them (Autumn Noval is the coolest, but I also like Jagger Grens, the best protagonist after Sephiroty and his clones, and Walter is close to my heart too, he just looks and acts like Walter from the manga Hellsing). And it's a good thing that everyone find his or her love, even Nanaki, and I really hope Tom will forgive to Autumn. Anyway, I see you update this story rarely, but I wish to see the end now, and how Rufus tells his secter to Tifa, and what will she say? (And forgive my mistakes, English is not my native language).
| Harteramo 8/18/09 . chapter 35
Another awesome chapter sad to see Vincent also leave us for the lifestream well i'm very much looking foward to the next chapter so keep up the good work and update when ya can!
| TheRecorder 6/22/09 . chapter 35
Whenever I finish reading all the chapters of a fanfic, I often pause to assess if I should review or not. Will I have time? Is it worth it? Do I care enough to want to read more?
How I wish it was as easy this time.
Allow me to start over.
Whenever I finish reading all the chapters of a really, really good fanfic, I often pause to allow the sheer magnitude wash over me and the sense of finality flow to the forefront of my mind so I can review. That's all the material for now, therefore I should show my appreciation. How shall I convey this point? Should I mention this part? Where shall I place my hopes of further chapters?
Then I finish this fic, and not under normal circumstances, I might add.
So, for a final time, I will try again.
After I read the last line of this chapter, I geniunely stared blankly at the lack of arrowed button next to the box labelled '35. Between Heaven and Hell', eyes glazed and thoughts drifting out of my forehead in a nearly tangible manner. That is, until what very much felt like a crack sprouting down along the inside of my left temple alerted me to the fact I haven't even anything but a single doughnut since eight o'clock last night and I will have a splitting headache until the point I get up and actually eat. So, in what was undoubtably the best course of action, I stared at the screen in awe for some time longer. Five minutes, and I actually rose to go replenish my starving body, only half-aware of my surroundings. (This is supposed to illustrate the respect and appreciation I hold for this story, but I'm afraid it might simply indicate how dorky I become upon faced with a good story and foolish I am to wake up at six in morning instead of sleeping in like any other self-respecting teenager should do on a summer day, thus resulting in fatigue that probably contributed to my reluctant stance on moving from my chair.)
I will leave out intricate details of what may or may not have escaped my mouth during certain points in this tale, especially considering some may or may not have been catergorized as 'squeals of fangirlism'. I liked this story very much and look forward to its final chapters. The reasoning behind Cloud and Vincent's death was logical to the point of frustrating at times as I very much clung to the hope that Vincent could be revived. Clung very, very tightly.
What surprised me the most was how much I liked the original characters. Usually I don't like any extra characters in Final Fantasy fanfics I read, but your characterzation of them was very enticing. I'll admit I was more concerned over the possibility of Captain Lynn's death than I was over Reeve's. And even though I repeatedly noticed times that I simply Was Not Pleased with developments (such as Ace. I'll own to slight Yuffentine bias, but I couldn't prevent myself from liking the guy a bit anyways. After all, he presented the 'rufus' dilemma, one of the parts I really liked.), I still kept reading on, not even pausing to ponder why I didn't stop when such things have prevented me from completing many fics before now. It's like books, I suppose. I never was good at putting one down even if I hated it.
Anyways, I think I've rambled on long enough. It must be genectic, my sister's the same. Our backspace buttons are sorely neglected.
Right, ending ramble.
I patiently await more.
