Every now and again I wonder to myself why I read and write fanfiction. The simple answer is generally 'Why'. Why did it happen this way? What could have happened if that had been different? So when I write and seek out stories, I'm generally looking to satisfy this want to know how things could've been different.
I'll never have to wonder again. Thank you, so much, for such a beautiful piece of writing. I drank in every single word.

Oh my god, I'm in tears right now. This may have all been disproved by FM, Days, and BBS by now, but goddamn if it couldn't have easily been canon. Roxas is so raw and real here, and your take on what he is as a Nobody is probably going to stay forever as my personal headcanon because even the games never managed to get into it as deep as you have. I'm really glad you decided to keep this the way it was, because it is beautiful and I can't imagine it being half as amazing if things were changed.
(Also, your fic "Absence" which I dearly love as well is all the more poignant now.)
This hurt me in the best way possible. Thank you.

This was an extremely beautiful story. Watching Roxas progress through his short time as a separate person was such a fascinating thing that I couldn't tear myself away. This may as well be canon, in my humble opinion. Very lovely work. 3

OMG. I don't normally cry when I read fanfic but this line: "I think you're the part of me that never wanted to be the hero."
...it undid me. I'm crying as I write this. This was an excellent look into Roxas' motivations and feelings during the game, and honestly I don't see where it doesn't line up with canon (there's all that time they don't show, I can see this fitting in perfectly).
In short, this was amazing, I love you for writing this and making Roxas that much more tragic (I always go for the characters with sad endings) and I'm going to bookmark this so I can come back to it. Again and again.

i hate this about the game. axel and roxas are a freaking tragic pairing. no future unless there in an au in fics. lol a/n's funny btw, so me. 6 weeks and 2 days, not corny at all and i crack up at stuff like that. the whole chp was beautiful.

k finally some fluff. darkish but whatever. sorry about not reviewing your previous chapters. i've gotten good with reviewing stuff i like. but the beginning was long, good, but it took awhile for the story to set up. i kept wanting to read about organization 13 and axel. the riku bit i didn't expect. if that was CoM i don't rmr much from that one. shoot and this is almost done too.

That was such a sad story it made me cry :( but it was nice and I absolutely loved loved loved it.
| Lenneko-chan 10/8/10 . chapter 6
That was... that was brilliant, and even that doesn't really cover it all. I really wanted to cry at the end, it was just so beautiful...
That was really an exceptionally good job. I don't know what else to say, just... I loved it. I really, really loved it.

Wow... this was simply amazing. I'm actually kind of offended that you've only gotten 74 reviews for this. I know it's a couple years old, but I also know how nice it can be to hear back about older works, so I thought I'd drop you a line. .
It was beautiful and heartbreaking and uplifting all at once, and THAT is a feat. The story was nice, but it was the prose and the emotion you seemed to so easily convey that made it such a joy to read. Thanks so much for sharing - I truly enjoyed it and will definitely be sharing it with my friends!

I'm really confused as to why this does not have more reviews. I've already reviewed once, but I had to do it again. It was so goddamn beautiful. Brilliant work.

..so sad. :( but really good.
| orgymoogle 5/13/10 . chapter 1
Wow, this first chapter was incredible! I absolutely loved it! You're a fantastic writer. :D
-gigglesnort- I love Demyx. x3
Great, great job!
| squigglything 5/7/10 . chapter 6
Wow, I wonder why I didn't read this earlier... 0_0 It was really really good...I mean, it seriously didn't even matter if it didn't follow the actual KH thing that you were talking about! It was just THAT good, it could stand perfectly fine on its own anyway! Gah..the final parts made my guts wrench. It was so sad :( and you feel so sorry for Roxas when you read it.. But that's how it is for Roxas, huh? But you know, I actually find myself wishing KH actually played out like it did in your story. With the Sora and Roxas conversation. It would have made everything so much less..unfair.
Anyway, thanks for the awesome story. I really love all your works and I hope you write more soon!

Gah I loved this especially the ending! This story gets 5 stars!
| xTheTwilightPrincessx 2/3/10 . chapter 6
Wow. Just...wow. Far too much Riku/Roxas in my opinion, but it was still excellent. I love Roxas, and I love how deeply you delved into his life and story. The ending was beautiful and heartbreaking, and I absolutely loved his conversation with Sora. And this line:
"His last thought was: I never told him, not even with a look or some silly phrase like 'six weeks and two days'. I never told him.
He supposed, now, that he never would."
Heartbreaking. Amazing job.
