I love love LOVE this story. I just got done playing through Grabby's ending and was desperate for more... I didn't think that anyone would have written a fanfic for the pairing, let alone a MAGNIFICENT one that had me staying up until 3AM just to finish it! I am so eager for a sequel you have no idea...

That was absolutely fabulous! I find myself torn between praying for a sequel and just reveling in a fanfiction ending that is, for once, completely coherent and utterly satisfying. You tied everything together so well! And I loved that you didn't try to rehash everything that happened during the game portion of the story. Just great; you did a really amazing job with this. Thanks so much for sharing it.

Th-That was so amazing!
It was seriously written so well and so in-character-it was just, GAHH!
Could not stop reading to save my life and then I reached the end, all of the feels...
(Of course played the game and went down his route, that man, man)

Ooooh, what an amazing story! I've just finished playing this game (and of course I went Grabiner's route (tricky bastard, this one)) and I decided to check if there were any good stories with this pairing and I came up with yours. It's amazing! I couldn't stop reading it, it's so smooth, so interesting and their relationship is so believable, it's more interesting than many books I've read. I can't believe it's your first one! Is it? Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful story!
But now I'm officially hate his father.))

I LOVE YOU! You have true talent. Your story has accomplished something most pieces of literature have previously failed at. I recently played the game and ended it with the good professor and I was browsing a forum about the game and I saw where ALL the people were saying this fanfiction was AMAZING. I didn't expect much because fanfiction isn't usually this good. Your story had me laughing when she succeeded and near tears during those heart wrenching scenes. The part about the granddaughter was a lovely touch and the last parts between the lovely couple were so touching. I only wish there was a follow up to see how she does in school, if she makes it to Oxford, and if they do get back together. I must say THIS should be made into a follow up game for those players who finished the game with Grabiner or for anyone who wants an amazing story. People who haven't even played the game would even love this.

Okay, that was ridiculously good. This was absolutely, amazingly, unbelievably one of a couple of genuinely GREAT fics that I've read on here. There are many stories that I enjoy, or that suck me in, but there are really only a couple that I can honestly say are just all around very well written and FANTASTIC in that they are EVERYTHING a fanfiction should be. And this story is one of them.
I really can't do anything right now but shower you with mindless praise for all of the following:
-creating a highly original and captivating plot
-maintaining an in-character cast and giving them all a depth that can't even be found in the game
-continuing and COMPLETING the story! More than I've ever done and too rare of an occurrence
-NOT making the story some winded narration about the protagonist's vulnerable emotions and her deep and painful love for Grabiner etc etc
-for having me look up new words! I mean good lord, I improved my vocabulary while reading *fanfiction*, I could kiss you!
-for creating a likable, realistic OC who is NOT a mary sue. Seriously, a million brownie points for you on this one. It is extremely rare to find an OC-female-main-character with such realistic flaws and such a consistent, easy to grasp personality
...and a hundred other things I don't want to overwhelm you with. But just know, this is truly one of the very best stories on here. You are a fabulous writer, and, if you'll excuse me saying this, deserve to have your talents appreciated in the bigger, substantial fandoms on here. I only say that because here you are, with 50 reviews, sitting on a story eons better than all of the most reviewed stories in Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc etc. There are stories that have 15k reviews and are absolute garbage, with half of the reviews saying just that. And then there are cases like 50 shades of Grey, which make me want to weep. I mean it just isn't fair, that you've written such an amazing story for an *otome game* of all things! You deserve 100 x the recognition and reviews you've received and had it been a bigger fandom you might have gotten them!
I'm sorry though, I sound a bit like Eliza, don't I? And I've probably made much more of a fool of myself in this long review than I intended. Well whatever this review comes off as to you, and despite how I would really like it to be is the equivalent of 1000 reviews (I know it doesn't even come close), I really hope you know what a fantastic writer you are, and what a great job you've done here. I really hope you continue to write in the future. (-understatement of the century)

OH MY GOD THIS STORY WAS SO UTTERLY AMAZING! ;-; And now I finished it. TTATT
I really REALLY loved this! 3
| manjuxbun 7/17/12 . chapter 27
Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. Just the right amount of mystery, adventure, and romance. I loved every word. Would it be to much to ask for a sequel?

I had played Magical Diary for a few days and had completed Grabby's path. I couldn't help but adore the character and the relationship between him and PC and had to look around to read some fanfictions about them.
I just have to mention, once and for all, that you had really capture the essence of Grabiner and the PC character, and how they would interact and communicate with each other. I just simply love on how you keep them into character even.
I even love the really interesting plot you put, even the twist in the story that made me went ".. DAAAYYYUUMMM!". In short, I just love everything about this story; from start to finish. You kept me hooked and I kept reading without stopping. That was how good and how much I enjoyed it. I just couldn't help but sort of fangirling in how the ending seems so fitting despite how much I want more of PC/Grabiner.
I would really love to see you do a sequel to this story. I truly do! Do keep writing and just many thanks for writing such a wonderful, lovely story like this!

I feel this story ended exactly the way it should have ended- with Grabiner understanding she needs time to grow up, and with the pair of them waiting to see how things play out over the years. Fantastic, the way the plot played out with Isolde.
| moonship 6/19/12 . chapter 17
Jesus CHR- I feel like I need to lock my doors against Montague or something.
| moonship 6/19/12 . chapter 15
Montague's got so many layers, I don't know what to make of him! As for Eliza and Grabiner, their argument near the end felt very natural. Fantastic job!
| Devouring Rush 6/17/12 . chapter 1
Forsook sleep in favor of reading this fanfiction. And, it was beautiful. My emotions were all jumbled and torn apart, because I really do love the possibilities of this pairing and you just pulled everything together so well. The characterizations were astounding. Not to mention the plot! It kept me guessing until the big reveal (Where I then skimmed back through the story to look for clues and smacked myself in the face for not making notice of certain things). Honestly, it was so amazing how you transformed little quirks and barely mentioned facts in the game into full blown irreplaceable plot points. Not to mention your addicting writing style.
However, my favorite part of the story was watching the relationships unfold as well as watching the characters unfold, and of Grabiner's past in general.
Just. All the awards to you. All of them.
| moonship 6/15/12 . chapter 1
I have to admit- as much as I wanted to like the Grabiner romance, it creeped me out a bit in game. However, based on this first chapter, I'm honestly wanting to know what's going to happen to the pair of them! Looking forward to the chance to read through your other chapters!
