poor karin, but i have to admit that sena and yamato make a better pair

Guh, why so heartbreaking? :(
Man, I really like your narrative and the way you span out what seems to be a long time into a small paragraph. It also helps that while this was Sena/Yamato, not one of my preferred pairings, I really really liked Karin's point of view.

Surprisingly enjoyable for a wall of text with no dialogue. I guess that's testament to the good writing. Nice work.
Definitely one of the more interesting stories featuring both Karin (We absolutely do not get enough of her) and fem!Sena.

Hey, it's been nearly a whole year since I've last read this. I've just finally realized the importance of a review to a storywriter, so here I go:
This is as good as a Karin centric can get, and so far it's beating all the others - by a long range. Even if it's a little angsty. :)
I liked the length of it, short and seet and didn't drag on for too long...ord choice was pretty good, except for one questioning one. "Oh-fuck-you-caught-me-red-handed" struck me as a weird "word" for me, since the POV is from Karin's thoughts and feelings, and I didn't think that she'd be the type to cuss or anything. It just bothered me.
A bit choppy in some places, but your powerful ending made up for it. I seriously loved ending.
Sorry being so critical - I hoped you found it helpful rather than me saying "Hey, I liked it!" or something...

I was hesitant at first to read this because it seemed like Karin would be one of those vengeful girls, but the way you wrote this and the characters themselves (I love Sena in here for some reason, because you make her sound /real/) are well above what I was expecting It makes me wonder what a story from you about Karin and Yamato together would sound like, but I think I like this version of things better. And I liked the way you formatted this too - sort of like each paragraph is a drabble (to me, that is) and they all connect.
And I'll stop my rambling now because I doubt I'm making any sense. But yeah, in short, very nice oneshot with an interesting plot

Actually, I’ve found this story by pure accident.
I was searching for some YamatoOC stories to spork them. Adjusted filters for Yamato and whatever. What, no stupid Sue fics? Oh, let’s see,
Yamato/Karin one, and with gender switched Sena no less. It MUST be lame.
I started to read, preparing to smirk nastily. Have read the first paragraph.
And reread it.
And once again.
What the hell? The style is surprisingly good and the plot and narration are not silly at all.
I’ve read it. You’ve conquered me.
Well written, with carefully chosen plotline and delicately described emotions. You make them look so natural I started to believe in it, even if originally everything was meant as pure crack.
You accurately deliver the whole spectrum of feelings and create smooth, believable, well-paced dynamics.
I like how you don’t make it overdramatic, life isn’t all drama, even for teenage blond girls.
Absolutely in character Yamato, without annoying Gary Stu gleam.
Everything is perfect.
Definitely a favorite.
Keep going, dear. Please.

Sheesh, so depressing...makes me sad for Karin -sniff- she's so pretty...
Good job on creating the atmosphere though! It really dragged me down...!

Poor Karin, what angst.
And you can't find someone else to chase after either...
