Ohmygodthiswasadorable. And so witty, like all of your work. And so /sweet/. Seriously. I am dying from the cuteness here. I love it.

Wow, i have to say, this story is a pleasure to read. Your writing is astonishingly good and just over all very funny.
(sorry for my less-than-stellar-english)

That was absolutely hilarious and sweet at the same time, teehehe. You're seriously getting me addicted to this pairing. *sighs happily* I luv your writing style!

Haha oh did you read Carol Ann Duffy's poem Valentine? Because some of the lines sound really similar to the poem! Kudos for the awesome story:)

First time I read this, I've just read a big angst wip which shot my nerves raw. And this fic managed to kick the emo and bring me smile in just a couple of paragraphs. So yeah, thanks a lot! This goes straight to my "cheer up fic" list.

I was completely neutral about the who Shisui/Itachi thing... And then I read this...
I HAVE BEEN WON OVER. 3

i love, love it!
Gosh, I love the story, the characteres, the way like the story walked!
| Bleu 6/6/11 . chapter 1
You simply can not imagine how much this made me laugh and smile, my cheeks hurt now and are begging to be benat back to their usual shape. It's so nice to get something light-hearted and humorous from you, it was an absolute roller coaster ride, I revelled every minute of it. It was just so perfect and beautifully, innocently and effortlessly so.
While I love your deeper and more serious stories as they make my heart ache, my eyes moist and my brain ponder I also happen to adore these small bursts of happiness which bring a smile and more to my face.
Well Done! This was truly remarkable in every sense of the word!
| Celestial Secrets 5/31/11 . chapter 1
Oh my goodness, this had me internally laughing quite a bit. The character interactions and Shisui's outspoken demands and bumbling confession were the best. Shisui may be dense as a rock, but at least he realized he's smitten, too.
| Sweetest Possible Revenge 5/17/11 . chapter 1
You totally made me feel better. Thanks.
Also I didn't expect the big fat gay crush thing, that totally blew my mind. You know how when you read really good fics like this you start mourning the fact that Shisui was killed because he's so totally supermegawesomefoxyhot?
| MyMindWasChaos 5/3/11 . chapter 1
This story reminds me of something I've read before in a very good, nostalgic way! Thank you for that.
The Traveling Onion by Naomi Shihab Nye
“It is believed that the onion originally came from India. In Egypt it was an object of worship — why I haven’t been able to find out. From Egypt the onion entered Greece and on to Italy, thence into all of Europe.” — Better Living Cookbook
When I think how far the onion has traveled
just to enter my stew today, I could kneel and praise
all small forgotten miracles,
crackly paper peeling on the drainboard,
pearly layers in smooth agreement,
the way the knife enters onion
and onion falls apart on the chopping block,
a history revealed.
And I would never scold the onion
for causing tears.
It is right that tears fall
for something small and forgotten.
How at meal, we sit to eat,
commenting on texture of meat or herbal aroma
but never on the translucence of onion,
now limp, now divided,
or it’s traditionally honorable career:
For the sake of others,
Hahaha. Makes me kind of sad when I think of Itachi as the onion. Weird, huh?
