Man I was giving up believing that Duo was still alive as I progress to the end of the story but decided to go to the reviews and see any hint of him being alive. I was pretty desperate wanting him alive still and he is thank goodness. Awesome story. :)

After three days of staying up until one in the morning (seriously!), and around 15 hours later I finished this story.
OMG, I love this story so much, like along with Boot Camp and The Wedding Planner, these are my top three...and you're officially my fav Gundam Wing Author!
I'm so glad I finally finished this story. Through the whole story I've been ranting to my friend on and on how LONG it has taken me to read TEN CHAPTERS. LIKE O MY GOSH. there's freaking 69 chapters I need to read and I've only gotten through TEN!? haha, it all cool though.
I had this inkling in the beginning of the story of why there's 69 chapters. Like, this story IS rated M and such and so I'm like 69! reference to sex...sex, sex, sex and more sex :D I thought it was TOTALLY appropriated to end it there. (PS: you're lemon scenes are HOT)
With that beginning said, I really think you've done a wonderful job, especially with the updating. Even though I read this when it was completed, you finished over three hundred grand words in a little over a year! ENVY!
And I know this is too many years too late, however can you somehow have a sequel/spin-off of this story? Like Wufei's wedding or the FBI finding where they live? I know it probably wont be that huge of a story, maybe a one-shot special for this story? please please?

Wow. So reading this was an undertaking! I honestly think I like The Wedding Planner better so I waited a few days before reviewing this as I wasn't quite sure what to say. But this story has some serious staying power as I find parts of it floating in my mind unbidden throughout the day. The whole idea of everything they've gone through, of thinking someone you care so passionately about is dead... Ugh. Even knowing he wasn't, it's still really haunting. That emptiness. :-( I've thankfully never lost a lover that way but your description was so poignant I felt that I could relate. Especially when he took the ashes to the sea. That finality... *sob!*
I really expected him to be at that restaurant so when Heero left the town... I was so angry and disheartened at the end of that chapter haha. I was so relieved when he went back. And I can definitely see why they would never want to be apart again.
This is certainly one helluva fic. You've inspired me to go for the 100k mark on my next multipart. I can only hope I can pull it off 1/10th as well as you...

I was so mad it was a death fic. I almost forgive you for the stress u put me and Heero through. Even though i kinda had a feeling it was too rushed to be real...
| cheZaswulf 2/4/13 . chapter 47
This fic makes me laugh more than any fic ive ever read and thats saying a lot! Thank you!
| cheZaswulf 2/3/13 . chapter 16

God I love your stories. I am absolutely addicted all the way to the end. This time was no different hanging on to every twist of the plot: When's he going to realize he loves Duo, when is going to prove his love to Duo, when is Duo going to say I love you... and of course the amazing ride I went on at the end: whaaaaaat? Une did whaaaaaat?... he's not dead it's a cover-up...it has to be a cover-up...is it a cover-up?...is this real?...Duo's dead? (tears at this point)...Duo's dead!...He can't be dead, she promised!...Oh my fucking god he's really dead...AUGHHHHH! Goddamm, euphoria to nirvana, Duo, alive, fuck, yay, dammit.
This review probably makes no sense, but it is an accurate representation of what an emotional rollercoaster I've been on for the last few chapters and I just wanted to inform you that this is the only fanfiction that I have ever cried over that I wasn't reading at 3 in the morning (I tend to be more emotional when late nights screw with my brain chemistry). Anyway I just wanted to thank you, and to let you know if you don't already that you have a gift.

So, I wanna start by saying that I LOATH will all my heart and soul 1st person point of view. I never read them. Ever. I've clicked on this story so many times over the years, read the first couple lines and went 'Hell no' and clicked back every time. Finally, last night I said screw it and Im so glad I did!
This story is wonderful! I havent found a GW story Ive liked this much in years! It was the first kind of fanfiction I read, and I was dying for some good old Heero/Duo love. I literally read this story till 3 in the morning, then work up and read the rest all day. It was at least 12 hours of reading but it was so worth it.
Thank you so much.
AND, how did I not notice you wrote The Wedding Planner too?! That stories been on my nook and computer hard drive for YEARS.

Great chapter. I can't say that I'd be comfortable doing what Duo is going to do myself. If he can pull it off that'd make it just even more funny. If K is shocked he got there alive it'll make things even more enjoyable too.
| nightwalker-shadow16 5/11/12 . chapter 50
Gets better and better. Nto that things were 'good' at the end of the chapter though. I just love how you write this. It's pretty realistic and makes it easy to see what's happening.
| nightwalker-shadow16 5/11/12 . chapter 47
I have been wanting to review for a while but there was an issue with me logging-in. Guess I can say a lot about the story then ...
This is great. I like this one just as much as the 'boot camp' story. You seem to have the greatest ideas for the main pairing and the genre. Can't wait to keep reading,

I don't understand why authors spoil the story with deathfic warnings. I can understand the little tease you gave in the earlier chapters about not doing deathfics then confuse the audience by having a 'death' then surprising the audience with the happy ending however the A/N at the start of this chapter seemed a bit of a spoilsport.
Not that I can say it ruined the story, I read Diary of a PW first, but had I not read it first, I'd be a little disappointed at the lack of surprise.
Is there a mandate to announcing if a story is a deathfic? I notice many other author do the same thing: Post-deathfic or non-deathfic alerts. But why? Why is this necessary?
If something was beautifully written for 62 chapters, why on earth would I stop reading afterwards if it was unannounced that a major character would die?
| SailorChibi 11/12/11 . chapter 69
Seriously amazing story. There's just no other possible words.
| Clara Barton 10/1/11 . chapter 69
Ending on 69! Love it!
Also: I knew he wasn't dead! But you really had me going. When it was iffy about Heero and you kept saying that you didn't do deathfics... but then I got to the end and I was like... um, maybe she changed her mind?
So, final verdict: So in love with this Heero. I remember commenting on his characterization after the first chapter - and you warning me that I might not still love him when he starts to pursue Duo. Nope, you were wrong, I totally still did.
His struggles with himself, with Duo, with his job and their relationship - it was all such a great and gradual build. And I loved how real it was in that it didn't always steadily progress, but had to backtrack sometimes and it was messy and sloppy and just... really nice.
I also just want to say that your Trowa was HOT. I love his personality, his quiet strength, and of course his uber-hotness.
I also appreciated Quatre - you didn't make him a girl or, at the other end, a completely OOC bad-ass either. He was this charming mix of confident and shy and it was...endearing, as Quatre should be.
Wufei was interesting. A struggle for me to appreciate - but mostly because HE was struggling. I'm not saying this right, but what I'm trying to say is... you wrote him well. His journey was interesting and very difficult, but believable and a great one for him to make.
And now to Duo: *sigh* loved him so much. He was certainly NO saint, he was real and flawed and absolutely perfect.
Now it's my turn to use the die hard fan of a pairing line:
I love 2x3 and I will always have a secret wish that every fic I read will end with them together. BUT, that said, this 1x2 was completely believable and made me really respect and appreciate their relationship. I loved the dynamics you played with - the anger and violence against the foil of tenderness and humor. It was wonderful and rich and vivid - and presented a great romance against an action packed background.
I loved every chapter - and it is your own fault that they were too good and suspenseful for me to wait and review at the end of each one instead of rushing through to the end.
So, I spent today waiting on movers who showed up - no kidding here, 7 HOURS late - and I put the time to good use by reading this. So... also your fault that I didn't crank out another chapter of Umbra.
And one last thing: you've disabled your PMs so I can't respond to your last review of Umbra... which makes me sad. I hope you didn't get more insulting and completely not worth your time flame mail.
Smoky Hills is next on my list, by the way - so get cracking! Kidding, take your time and make it as awesome as this fic was.
