Aawww! Now that I think about, the shoes did have some kind of symbolism. Either that, or I'm crazy. I absolutely love seeing friendship fanfictions, because they really warm my heart. Thank you for writing, you never fail to please!

Oh, very nice. I like the union of the storyline via Jonouchi's shoes, and I enjoyed that story to begin with, because it was so outrageous. And had a scorpion. Nice characterization, especially Jonouchi, and Yuugi losing track of something like a birthday when no one else did seems appropriate, too.
I really liked "one who needs more than a tale of attempted-murder-by-scorpion to surprise him". I laughed.
I hope he did get him a new pair of expensive shoes. Those are an awesome present with which one can have great fun, Yuugi's just never been cash-strapped enough to appreciate new clothes.

I first read this fic years ago, when it first came out. I still come back and look it over. This is quite possibly my favorite friendship fanfic for YGO ever written. You captured the spirit of the show perfectly; you remind us why these characters are so wonderful.

He's right. Those shoes HAVE been through hell and back. And they're proud of it. I can just imagine in years to come, they're on display, with every little thing on them explained. XD Great story, really.

xD Aw! What an awesome metaphor

i love this! i can't really explain it. i feel kind of bad for not offering any constructive criticism, but i can't really think of anything to say. the first thing i usually notice is typos, and i didn't see any. i love how jo gives yugi the shoes. i mean, obviously he wouldn't just throw them away, but it just seems really cute to me.
i'm glad to see that this is post-atem, because a lot of people avoid writing yugi without yami.

Well hello. I read your story, because of the title that caught my eye. And as you said in your profile you would rather prefer critiques than meaningless praise. So here goes...
Well to tell you the truth, I didn't find anything that catching or interesting about the story at all. To me, it's almost close to useless drabble and maybe it truly is, but something rescued the story from being just that. And that was Jou's idea of everything they had been through being recorded in his sneakers. Somehow the thought of thinking that way fits Jou perfectly. After all, who else look's at thier shoes in such a profound way? So, to me the story may have not been the best,(if not below it) but it's not without it's own charm.
Well that's my perspective, and from hearing that I'm pretty sure you'll want to make your other stories better, because there's still room for improvement. Bye!

Hi aww that was such a nice story. To tell you the truth when i saw the title was "shoes" I thought Jonouichi was gonna start singing "shoes by kelly" XD. Btw nice fic hope to read more.
Thanks for posting at my forum. Hope to you see your around

Wow! I'm speechless. It's an original, well written story. And to look at shoes that way is just amasing.

Aww...that was kinda sweet. It's weird how something like shoes can carry so much meaning, right? I can't think of any constructive critcism to give you; honestly I think your story's fine the way it is. - Keep it up!

That was a really fun story. Thanks! It's rare to see a food "friendship" tale on Good work and A. Your strongest point as a writer is good use of dialogue to move the plot along. Just make sure that each character speaks in his/her unique voice. (I have to watch myself on that point, too.)
Thanks for writing this piece-

Aw... it's kind of sappy xD But it actually makes me feel a little nostalgic too; it's been so long since I've watched or read any Yu-gi-oh... *happy sigh* Childhood memories. Overall, I found the story to be a little heavy-handed in places ("Right! I get it. I understand now, Jonouchi." "I figured you would. You always understood these kinds of things." ...;), and I think it 'might' have been more IC (but certainly more fun to read) if Jonouchi had been more awkward/less obvious about his request... but then again, I can see exactly this kind of scenario playing out in Yu-gi-oh in one of its sappier moments-the feel of it is very true to the show-so I guess it's well written in that respect ; It's a very cute concept! Meh... I'm sorry if this is too harsh; I think I'm too cynical anymore to fully appreciate the moral lessons Yu-gi-oh ;

What a wonderful idea!
I really agree about the shoes, when I came to the part where Jou explained about the shoes I was just sitting and nodding and thinking "Hey, that's true!".
Also, this is a very well-written story.
