Oh please say you're going to pick this up again. This is so fantastic. The way you write Rei really just blows me away. I love how you manage to capture her introspection, and deal with the issues that PGSM *coughnososubtly* alluded to surrounding herself and her relationship with Minako. Beautiful writing as always, and even if you don't continue (I really hope you do though), these two chapters were enough of a gift to the fandom. You have a true talent for writing-I hope to see something from you soon!

I still really like this story. I read it back before I started writing my own and was greatly saddened that there wasn't more of it to read!
It's well-written, detailed, and you obviously know your way around Japanese culture and martial arts-the sparring scene was most excellent. I also love the not-quite but almost flirting you have going on between Rei and Minako. It's good fun.
I hope you are planning to continue this sometime, because it's shaping up to be very very good.

There is one glaring issue I have with this story.
...There isn't MORE of it!
Enjoyed the first two chapters immensely! Please keep it up!

Great story, please update again soon. I really miss reading PGSM Rei/Minako stories.

Another great chapter! The vision/dream in the opening scene had wonderful imagery. I like that you've taken something common to the fandom and put your own twist to it. Likewise, with the sparring scene between Rei and Minako being the catalyst to seemingly start to awaken Mars' memories within Rei. You keep the concept fresh, and your word choice and placement makes your text flow so nicely.
It seems you've offered a segway with the irate man in the dojo, and I can't help but wonder if the increase in human violence Ami had suggested at could be related to the past lives of the senshi.

I'm finally reviewing! Hurrah for me! (And for you you, I suppose.)
I love love loved Rei's first memory of the shrine and finding the sacred fire within it. I think one thing I really enjoy about your writing are these surprising little snippets that I had never stopped to consider before now. I had never questioned what was happening to Rei while the other senshi were busy battling in the Special Act, nor did I think about Rei's first arrival at the shrine or what happened to her grandfather. Your insights and ideas are spot on, and they flow right along with the PGSM storyline.
One scene I particularly enjoyed was the sparring match between Rei and Minako. Their movements complimented one another and I envy your ability to describe physical action so well. I like that you are taking Rei's understanding of her sexuality and her attraction to Minako at a slow pace, as I imagine that's exactly how she would react. I'm excited to see how her visions unfold as she comes to terms with herself.
Good work all around!

okay, so i printed out these two chapters and re-read your first one, and then i squealed and went on to the second! I think i'll be printing out all your chapters and creating my own little book :D i read it in class while we were watching a boring video as well haha
totally what i expected, you seriously rock and i love your details.
Rei's obvlisiousness to her emotions were awesome. When she questioned her sexuality, it was so cute!
i snorted out some of my tea at the part where she was tryting to figure it out and started eyeing the girls in her class, but then minako came all 'boo!' and she freaked :P
the fight scene was hot, and i adored the image of Rei fainting - so cute
i don't know if it was your intenion, but i got the feeling that Minako was taking the oppurtunity to feel Rei up as much as possibleduring the fight lol
I'm surprised no one at the dojo recognized the idol...
I give you an electronic hug via e-mail! Big hug, because i can't stop smiling now

What an amazing story. Seriously. You're such a great writer, I'm so envious.
Rei's attraction to Minako was not only extremely well-written but also very hot and cute at the same time. :3
And it's obvious that Minako likes her back too..
I can't wait to see where you're going with this.
Especially concerning that vision.
I hope you update soon!
