I really like the dynamic you set up between Noah and Set. The memories fading in and out was really fantastically cool; it was strange but only in the best of possible ways

Why didn't you tell me you were so brilliant? Good god, this story is amazing. It's been a while since anything actually made me feel emotions, but this...oh my god.
Seriously though. I love your interpretation of the afterlife, and Kisara's connection to Seto in his different incarnations. I wish I had your talent for story (being that I have mainly talent for porn). That Noah chose to wait for his brothers is the sweetest thing ever.
Your portrayal of the people and their feelings, in this story, made me feel really attached to them. It's almost like hearing a story about something that actually happened. I feel like I'm looking forward to Noah reuniting with Seto and Mokuba, and the Priest finally passing on...
Very well done. This is a fantastic tale, and I'm only sorry that I didn't read it sooner.

Wow. That was awesome! The idea that the limbo of sorts was a room like that was epic! Also the pacing and how we saw Noah put things together was nicely timed and over all this was awesome! The best part had to be when... you know after typing that the whole story comes to mind. Okay repharse. My favourite part had to be when Noah explained that one would not leave without the other and how they would take Seth with them. Anyways, awesome job!

Quite interesting, I must say. Your take on Kisara was especially insightful, and made sense...to me, at least. Kinda makes me really sad for Set(h) though.

Aaaah I love how these started as a piece that just seemed all introspective and developed into something so much more! There are a few especially noteworthy parts, including when Seto draws the comparison between the relationships with their fathers, and when Noa decides he'll wait for the Kaibas.
And of course, I have to say that this 'purgatory' - it's quite well-thought out! An undefined place, where time, space and even the mind seems to never be quite in your grasp - really cool! Seriously, I can't believe the quality of the Bayshippings we got this round - no wonder Azh loves the pairing so much. :3

Ooh, I liked this! The writing was really good, and I love how you have them meeting in the afterlife-its a very interesting and compelling premise. At first, I thought that there was an imbalance of dialogue in the story-it is quite dialogue-heavy, and sometimes there can be a better way of explaining something to the reader or having the character percieve something than dialogue, but there was quite a lot to tell when Noa first meets Set.
But then, towards the middle, I realized that they are both quite alike in light of their relationships with their fathers, and the nature of their fathers. Noa and Set have a thread that connects them, and through the story you built a bond between them that really shone through (I loved the idea of waiting)... the ending really is this quite lovely moment.
Great job! Thank you for writing this!

Awww, this was wonderful. Definitely your best yet! I loved your characterization of Set, it was brilliant. His devotion to Kisara was just so beautiful, and I really liked how you wrote about all the things they had in common ("Many sons have been betrayed by their fathers" and lines like "It was hard to look at for very long" were great, I loved Noa and Set's dialogue). The idea in general is fantastic, and you wrote it so well. Great job on this, and keep up the great work! D

This was... really good! *fails at concrit* Nicely timeless.
| yllimilly 9/8/11 . chapter 1
At first this felt like a reflective piece, a sort of 'essay' on the Kaibas, or a sort of filling the blanks Takahashi never did.
But the ending turns this nice piece in something even more satisfying, which I did not see coming and welcomed.
Thanks for the great read.

I really like this. The way Noah's mind kept wandering and forgetting (I have a similar headcanon about spirits and their memories, so it made me delighted to see it in your work), the way you described the afterlife (your first four paragraphs about describing nothing that still "was" and calling it confusing, I loved those lines). Your dialogue is fantastic, the mood of the story really having an effect on me: I could almost try and put myself in their position and feel sorry for them. The open-ended ending, where you let readers decide how the meeting later on would occur, or what would happen exactly, that was really fitting and perfect. Thanks for the read!

this was gorgeous. OMG. i cannot even put into words how completely lovely this fic was. i definitely felt like crying by the end. poor seto! i want a happy ending for him so badly, but i like how you leave the ending open. absolutely brill job, your writing is fantastic!

Awesome, truly awesome. So sad, and yet so strangely hopeful as well. Hopefully, Kaiba's greediness will work in someone else's advantage and he'll have the cards buried with him. Freeing Kisara's soul at last. I don't think he'd mind her with the other Seto, she's his strength but more in a guardian kind of way. Almost as though he's the descendant the two ancient versions should have had. It's stories like these that keep reeling me back in to this site...

l'ooooomg this is beautiful. Seriously: beautiful.
I think you really weaved this together well. The way you've written Noah is gorgeous-he's the hurt, confused, lonely child we got to see toward the end of his storyarc who finally was able to come to peace with himself and see what was important to him. I think it's really sweet how you showed the respect he gained for Kaiba. At this point, it seems like he could even look to Kaiba as a personal hero, which I fully endorse because SHIT THAT IS SO ****ING CUTE.
I'm not hugely familiar with Seto's character, but the person you've written here is sensitive, observant, and strong. I love the moment of bitterness he feels after Noah tells him that Kisara ain't comin' back, ever. EVER OH MY GOSH WHY DID YOU HAVE TO AAAHHHHHH ;A; I WASN'T EXPECTING THAT EVEN THOUGH IT MAKES SENSE. IT ALSO MAKES MY HEART BLEED IN A WAY THAT IS DISTINCTLY NOT THE NORMAL FUNCTION OF THE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM.
..but you made up for that by ending it with a light of hope that really touched me. I feel like these two are gonna be bros so hard while waiting, and then we got two more bros gonna join up and there will be brodome EVERYWHERE. Hell, Seto and Noah are the new Seto and Mokuba (who are coincidentally the new Seto and Mokuba after the cabbage-haired Seto and Mokuba). THERE ARE SO MANY SETOS AND MOKUBAS AND NOTHING COULD MAKE ME MORE HAPPY TO THINK ABOUT THAN A WHOLE BUNCH OF SETOS AND MOKUBAS, SERIOUSLY. AAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIII LOVE THIS SO MUCH.
I love this.
