| mom calling 8/11/11 . chapter 10
It's been awhile for this series, huh? But this is so crisp-and so redolent of fragrances from their clothing. I wonder why it hits me thus? How we preceive smells, the wiring of it, is so primal. I notice when authors describe the fragrance, or odor, of a character, but it often evokes only a word play for me. I don't actually 'do the smelling. This bit went right to the laundry-smell part of my brain. And how you wove it together into a memory of relationship is very, very powerful. Tip 'o the hat, SeungSeiRan. This is extra-ordinary, methinks. mc

Hah. It took me forever to read this for some reason xDD
I enjoyed this chapter - Really sweet. I even learnt that 'evanescence' is an actual word XD Fail.

Does this mean "a bird in hand"? She's with Reno now and she's going to enjoy 'now'. The spiked blond isn't there; maybe he will be another time and maybe not. ? Guess he didn't speak up loud enough soon enough. Well, all I can do is watch them work things out somehow...can't do it for 'em. Good to hear from you again, SeungSeiRan. Ciao. mc

Well, not alone in that Marlene and Denzel are there and I assume there'll be interaction between the three of them-But, yeah, in another sense it is alone 'cause Tifa's not there. But if she'd stayed in with all them, there might not be much interaction 'cause he'd pull himself into the background, letting her do it for both of them. So a nice box you've put up here around them all, SeungSeiRan. I won't ask where this might be going-if the balance is going to tip in any way-I'll wait to see where you're taking these people that I love. Oh Oh, I remember the Cinderella comparison that Marlene made. At midnight, things changed a lot for Cinderella. Perhaps the comment, seemingly so innocent and charming, has been made quite deliberately by you? Should I remember how the wire quakes sometimes? thx mc

“She looks like Cinderella, doesn’t she?” Marlene commented with awe as she peered outside at the giggling couple.
Rofl xDD Whut? xP
;_; this was a pretty depressing chapter. For Cloud, at least :F
Update fast! _

Aaw, poor Cloud.
Good job, Reno.

Reno got owned. Maybe he should have faked being sick? Another great chapter in this wonderful series. Keep up the fantastic work!

“You need an older girlfriend to take care of you.”
Ha. Remember that...Aerith ;)
Without Strife (appropriately named) -lol, nice find there! ;)
Really enjoyed this. You're a really excellent writer, from what I've read! Please update soon

So sweet! But I thought Reno had blue eyes? O.o
| QueenAlla 7/21/09 . chapter 4
“You guys watch out for the rainbow. There’s always one after every storm.”
False words of comfort he never meant.
But truth was an overrated fact anyway.
O.o Wow. Brilliant writing! Inspirational too.
| QueenAlla 7/21/09 . chapter 3
Oh, I feel stupid for asking this, but...Who do the green eyes belong to? :P
Loving it! Cloud is quiet...but awesome at the same time I think that a bit of Cloud and a bit of Reno would make a guy perfect :P Not too depressing, but not too annoying and stuck-up either ;)
| QueenAlla 7/21/09 . chapter 2
Excellent chapter once again! Love reading things from Reno's perspective He's so outright, y'know?
Loving the battle between Cloud and Reno, if you get what I mean :D
| QueenAlla 7/21/09 . chapter 1
Oh wow, I'm so glad I read this! Seeing the contrast between Reno and Cloud is really interesting, and I love the perspective of Tifa feeling she has to be a 'woman'. This is really brilliant, great job!

I had a brainstorm just now, and actually looked up the title to this set-I had assumed it was an Argentinian or Chilean word (-where in the name of confusion did I get that idea?-) but there it is, in my big dictionary. The distribution/use of light and dark. That, and this chapter, make what you are doing a bit more clear -to me-perhaps...and I'll be more patient in waiting to see how you sketch or paint this prose chiaroscuro. thx mc
