Other than that, very nice...you're one of the few people who's managed to give Selphie proper credit. Even I have trouble with that...I can't get into her head that well. I have a question. Is this an expansion on Selphie's admission that she once had a GF before she became a SeeD? If so, it appends that comment very well, and poignantly.
I like the fact you keep the GF's identity a mystery-particularly since that information is irrelevant to the story and explaining it would detract from the point of this fic. It also leaves one's imagination free to come up with its own conclusions.

Aw... what an incredibly bittersweet and beautiful story. Selphie's sense of the loss of time is parallelled with the endless years the GF must exist, and wait. Selphie's (almost uncharacteristic, but certainly not out of character and very believable) maturity contrasted well with the GF's childlike nature.

Oh well. Either way, it's still a lovely story, and as beautifully written as all your others. :)

Aw...that's the sweetest thing I've read in a long time. It's also the teensiest bit sad, but in a good way. I normally don't like Selphie fics because they either make her too perky or they make her strangely depressing, but this one was nice, short, and sweet. I like _
