Wow, this story was very angsty...but in a great way of course. I really liked how you captured Gray's feelings towards Lucy, and the bitterness of not getting feelings returned. Usually, I'm not a fan of reading Gray/ Lucy stuff but this was very good. You had great details, and I really liked how you wrote everything in almost broken sentences. The whole thing kind of broke my heart, but it was very realistic in that way. Overall, good story :) You should write more!

I just love this. With Love there also comes pain, and theres no way but to deal with it even if it hurts.
I'm just in love with this. I can't wait for more stories!:) And congratulations! I wish you the best!

Oh my goodness. I was wandering around in the graylu archive, not expecting much because well, the entire reason i stopped hanging around was because of the fic quality going down too much for me to take. So when i came across this... oh i swear my heart could have stopped. I love your graylu writing so much and i have no idea why you aren't on my alerts list yet. One sided Gray is my weakness and you write it so perfectly. Thank you for writing this beautiful piece.

OHMYGOD THESE FICS ALWAYSALWAYS KILL ME.
These three are like, my OT3. Seriously.
And I always get broken by fics that make Gray the odd one out, the one who loves but is never loved, and I can't help but like that Natsu and Lucy are meant for each other ('coz I ship them harder than I should, really), even though Gray is in such pain.
Wow, just wow. I'm gonna go die now. BRB.
(Fantastic job, by the way—don't mind me)

Okay, so when I got the email notification that you posted another story, I was really excited! But I couldn't get the time to read the new story until now, so here it is.
WOW Sech. Maybe it's just me, but it really feels like...I don't know, but like you're writing has evolved somehow. And I'm not just saying that. There's something subtly different about this piece. Don't get me wrong, you were great to begin with, but this...there's just this tone to it that sounds very, very adult. It's hard to describe, really, but it adds so much bitterness and hollowness to the sad bits, and the shy kind of acceptance at the end is infinitely sweeter because of it.
I really liked this. :) Keep em comin', ya hear?
Also, congratulations for getting engaged!

This is beautiful.
I don't know how active you are around here, but I recently took a look at a few of your stories and I'm HOOKED. You have such unique and enticing ideas and they turn out so lovely in print. I've gotten into GrayLu because of your writing (I've always been more partial to LoLu). So thank you so much for sharing your talent!

O. M. G. This is INCREDIBLE. I wanted to write a story like this for forever, but I'm not nearly good enough to DX But no rush on Chaos Theory, because quality matters a lot more than quantity. Just try to get it in soon, yeah?

Hey there! Honestly, I didn't know what to expect when my friend recommended your story to me. I've always liked GrayLu but I also knew that majority of the GrayLu stories here aren't worth much (it became a topic at Tumblr one time) so I never bothered to read anything... until now. I really owe my friend this time because this story is just WOW.
You make me cry, seriously.
I love the way you write; it's so poetic and it just flows so well despite the comma abuse that most people trip on, but somehow, it works for you. The way you wrote this tragedy that is Gray/Lucy is breathtaking. I've never thought about it this way, and his resignation in the end, really, just makes me cry. I'm a sucker for tragedies and okay I might be a big softie, but I really like this. (:
I especially loved the last part. You're really good with metaphors, I noticed.
"So he holds Lucy again, closer and tighter.
So at least, he can forget Natsu too."
I choked up at those lines right there. Poor Gray. ):
The last two lines of the poem you inserted also broke my heart. I can't get it out of my head for some reason.
Also checked out all your other stories - they are great and you are great. (: I love your portrayal of Gray overall, because he's so sexy when your write him. You're just an overall amazing writer. Thank you for not sucking. Thank you, thank you. (:

My god. You had me throwed! D:
I loooove a dramatic, angsty and heartbreaking piece.. And this is it. this is the one. It wasn't rushed it was perfect. It was bold and what you wrote was beyond my expectations - meaning it wasn't cliched. Very unique and creative, you are!
My english teacher always said 'when you write..you never EVER write "and then I woke up and it was all a dream. The end!"
But you my dear friend, you have got it in the bag! Even though it had that type of ending..you actually had a logical sequence of events and a proper explanation. I loved it.
It made me sad and made me happy..then sympathetic (poor poor Gray), hopeful..then shocked..then MORE hopeful, then BAM! I had tears in my eyes by the time I finished reading it. Your story conveyed many emotions out of me.. It's safe to say it is outstanding!
Let me just say.. I've read all your stories (yes, including the dropped ones). They are fantastic. Never ever stop writing. I wanna hear more from you in the future.
All the best!
P.S. It's so hard to type with my phone. It's even more painful backtracking to correct mistyped words. Sorry about this, hun. :'(

That was incredibly heart-wrenching, but I absolutely loved it. :) I wasn't quite prepared for the heavy amount of angst but your writing just captured me. Beautiful, and so poetic.
Great work, as always!

*tears well up*... This was s-so beautiful. The best one I've read so far... It made me cry... So much!
| WinterMelon.Pearl 2/15/13 . chapter 1
This was painfully beautiful. Each sentence falling with grace on the page. Every word seemed to flow naturally. I am in awe. Truly.
That really sucked for Gray, but this was utterly fantastic. I loved every moment of this. You wouldnt believe the impact your writing has on a person. I love GrayLu to death and this was just perfect.
Anyways, I just love that you wrote something like this. It's always a pleasure reading your lighthearted GrayLu fics, but this is also so lovely (and bittersweet). I had been searching for something like this for a while now. :-)
You are an incredible writer.

Thank you for the story. If you happen to be following the manga, this is a very hard time to be a GrayLu fan. It's stories like this that bleed the pain out a bit, so it doesn't smother you up inside. There is a truth between what is canon and what you wish there was. Sometimes it's just harder to digest it when it makes itself known.
Good story, great read, good night.
Till next time... adios.
