Awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, AWESOME! I bow to the awesomeness! This chapter was great, ya hear me? GREAT! (I'm writing in caps, it was so great, and I never do that). Where do I start? The scene with the two of them fending off those bandits was just the best, I loved it. the "If you'd like to keep that hand" line made the scene. I gotta say, it was worth the wait. Interesting thing going on with Knives, is it just me or does he swear an awful lot? It seems to suit him for some reason. as always, wonderful portrayals of wolfwood and Milly too, gotta love the guy's smarmy grin and needling ways. Oh, and if it says on your stats that this story's been accessed like, ten different times in the next day or so, that's me, rereading the chapter.

Haha, you know what makes kissing scenes so freaking great? The fact that I've gone back to reread it plenty of times, that's why. Haha, I'm sucker punched for good kisses (who isn't?) and this one (and the prelude to this hallway scene) was just the whole crapload of sundae. with sprinkled and roasted walnuts and that shell chocolate syrup. Which, at the moment, is making me crave ice cream, so that metaphor is gone.
Anyway, yay! Your story just makes me laugh and smile and squee and just...makes me glad that someone is writing something well. Haha, that scene with Vash, Meryl, and those thugs made me see how they're like Bonnie and Clyde...in the aspects of fighting together, and totally not because they're criminals. Well, however, they ARE in hiding and have scientists and government riding their cute little behinds. Haha, and I couldn't help laughing at the image of Meryl leeching on Vash's side as if he was holding a toddler. Ugh, and you suck for making them stop before his door and for him dropping his keys. Karma just has a way at tugging his sleeves, doesn't it?
WEL! Great job with this one, and I'm mos def looking forward for the next one!

I signed up for alerts 2 days ago and I get this surprise waiting for me in my inbox when I got home from work today. Sawet
Thats so funny that the steamer was hijacked again! At first i was convinced you woulf, but then I had my doubts. I seriously didnt think you would do it. And when I least suspected it. It happened lol
But I love your writing and I hope you update soon again. I love the way you've developed Meryl and Vash's relationship. I couldn't have thought of it better myself. Perfect!
Awesome as usual

As you know, I love love LOVE the part with Meryl and Vash in the elevator. It was just so hilarious. I could just imagine an elevator operator chuckling at them while they're all impatient to get up to his room. That is the funniest thing to visualize, -ever-.
The part when they're so rudely interrupted is positively hilarious! Meryl's reaction is priceless. In fact, everything about the way you portrayed her and everything else in this chapter was pure awesome.
I'm looking forward to how things work out with Lina and Elizabeth and everyone else over there, too. )
One of the best scenes in this chapter (even though they were all indescribably awesome) was the following one with Vash, Meryl and the bandits. Pissed off and impatient... lol. I liked how Vash dealt with everything. Cold, dark Vash. Me likey.
/ “No! I'm not complaining, or anything...” Vash hurried to amend. “It's just that, I think my leg is bleeding...” /
I don't know why I like it so much. It's just sort of jarring and funny in a strange sort of way.
The little scene with Knives and the Plant was cute. Knives seemed so childish, arguing impatiently with that Plant. )
The end, and the ending line itself, were great! I love all this sandsteamer misfortune, and can't wait to see how Vash and Wolfwood get outta THIS one...
P.S. You are made of awesome.
Looking forward to more!

YAY! You updated! Anyways loved the chapter. I just knew some type of gunman would interupt them. Always a given. Anyways hope you update soon!
| tonraq 7/9/07 . chapter 14
Curses, foiled again! Rather, that's probably what Vash was thinking when the bandits showed up.
And yay for Knives' cameo! I really like how you write him. Looking forward to the next chapter!
| Rak 7/7/07 . chapter 13
GUAH! DARN YOU WOMAN!
You need to update this fic.. now.. like now.. yeah?
Your writing is amazing. There are only a few writers in the Trigun fanfic universe that captivate me with their writing and you my friend are one of them. Astonishing. I was glued to my computer this entire day/night. My butt is sore now!
But of course It was all worth it. Please please please update this fic. I will love you forever. Heck I already do haha
| Crabbit 7/5/07 . chapter 13
This is really good.
| TheEndofTag 6/26/07 . chapter 13
Oh my gosh! I just love the story. You did a wonderful job of protraying the charcters. THank you for writing this story in the place. I really enjoyed it reading it. Keep up the fantastic job. Please please update as soon as possible. Because I'm dying to read more.
| shaid 6/25/07 . chapter 13
Great story, here! It's been a while since I've found a good Trigun continuation. I'm really looking forward to more of this. I like the way you brought Wolfwood back, his death was a crying shame in the anime. I'm working on reading the manga now, but I'm only two books in.
All in all, the plot is great and the characterizations are wonderful. I love to see the different ways Knives is interpreted (I'm not even going to pretend I spelled that right.) and seeing him drawn as a damaged sociopath is pretty interesting.
Good luck on getting more written soon!
| Boo 6/22/07 . chapter 13
Oh, that's a cliffhanger if I've ever seen one. You're sense of writing is amazing and your whole story seems very well thought out! I can't wait to read more of what you have to give us. And I can't wait to see what 'insect' catches Knives's attention enough to have him trip and fumble.
Keep up the awesome work!
| Jax 6/19/07 . chapter 13
Excellent story. You really capture each of the characters very well and your writing skills are brilliant. I don't review often but I really enjoyed your story. I hope that you update the next chapter very soon.

Hm. Great place to cut off at. *wrinkles nose* Oh well. Comes with the territory, I guess.
Sorry I haven't left reviews for earlier chapters, but I honestly didn't want to stop long enough to type one. Have I redeemed myself with that compliment? Vash in a suit is indeed very funny. I miss his hair like everyone seems to, but I concur that it isn't safe to look like himself, especially now that they've got his photo on the posters...although dressing to be sneaky of his own accord would feel very wrong, so good use of Karen. I watch Knives' progress with vital interest. Good job bringing Wolfwood back to life. Even my kid brother misses him. ;D If we have to spend too much more time on Vash and Meryl and doubt and lust, I will be moderately disappointed...but we'll probably continue with sandworms and plants and humans in short order. Hmm...reminds me very forcibly of the Xenocide books. Enough so that I hope you haven't read them. Even if you have, though, very nice work.
Hm...that was all one paragraph. I'm very angry with Elisabeth, by the by, and worried...because wanting him as a dangerous criminal is nothing to wanting him as the secret to unlocking unlimited power, or whatever they think they're doing...when I think about the Evil Conspiracy Think Tank being after Vash, humans look almost as scary to me as we do to Knives. Gack. Oh well. We'll see how it falls out. And it's Knives' fault, as usual. Hopefully Elisabeth and company are keeping things on the lowdown, and not too many people know why his bounty has more than tripled. What will Lina discover, and what will she do? Very interesting use of character, there. You're quite ruthless when you have to be, aren't you? Millie and her brother saving fireflies from spiderwebs was a detail that I particularly liked. Not that I know how fireflies would have made it to Gunsmoke...we haven't even seen proof that the spiders made it. Heh. Not worth sweating, so I won't. Oh, yes, and in an author's note a while back, when referring to a movie setting benchmarks for brotherly affection, you had 'filial' in place of 'fraternal.' Not in the least an important error, but one that caught my attention, largely because I like the word 'fraternal.'
Good night, miss. I enjoyed your story. I'll look forward to seeing more. And, admittedly, hope that we're not following them to bed.

Well, let me start off by claiming my loserish attributes. Why, you may ask? Haha, simply because I've read this story completely out of order; I started reading the last chapter when it was updated, and then read this one, all the while wondering why on earth am I confusing myself for the sake of Meryl/Vash goodness? And, it's exactly that. I'm really sorry, but I tend to NOT start reading from the beginning, and usually skimming through the plot to see if I should read back to the beginning. I definitely should've started with this one. Because it is delightfully entertaining and though it's taken me probably a total of six hours to catch up, I'm still anxious for more! The length of these chapters may have been droll, but I was enthralled by every word! I love the way you write, and the way you describe things without making them seem too material or too incessant. I thought that I wouldn't enjoy the lack of Meryl/Vash interaction, but I found myself loving the relationship between Vash and Knives. Okay, I still deem Knives undeniably scary and ill-tempered, but his character is one that slowly grows on you the more he succumbs to the ways of living within the outside world he isn't used to. Ah well, I guess I'll just wait and see!
There's so much I want to praise you for, but the list is just too long! That in itself can attest to my appraisal. You're doing a wonderful wonderful job with this story and I'm just so...ahihfsosfles in anticipation of the upcoming chapter. He's taking her back to his cabin, is he? HE BETTER!

This fanfiction is made of awesome. The day this was first published I checked through the Trigun site (a fandom I haven't been around for quite some time) on a whim and found a jewel. Anyway, I figure it's about time I offered my humble praises and admitted that I religiously check for updates because your cliffhangers drive me mad.
What hooked me is your character interaction, the conversations are so true and interesting, and every one of them is kept IC. I also love to bits that you're bringing in old faces that are too often forgot about in new and refreshing ways. Anyway, you know what you're doing, so keep it up! Luffs.
