It is a different approach in the relationship between Kurama and Botan and honestly is not so bad is... chapter made me confuse ...so all this time they were in love with each other but neither of them knew about the feelings of the other,basically they thought that they hated each other?That is the conclusion?And the part with making love O_O that really astonished me ,I mean they do not even know each other well and they jump in to the bed!Sorry but I am really honest here,besides that I love that you show a different side of meeting and starting a relationship,I like also that you do not have grammatical mistakes but I thing I prefer a fanfiction like Finding by neon-elixir who by the way I thing is the most believable from the many stories that I read about this couple ,is the only author who described their relationship like in canon.
I congratulate you for the plot is really unique !

Is Port there?
Hey what have gone you for so long?
This is sad, you didn't finished a brilliant story you had started.. .give us a peace of mind. .please!
Geez! Anyhow, you should continue this no matter how long it will take or no matter how bad will it end up. .at least you did. Ne?
Haha! I felt broken-hearted by this.
This is remarkable,really.
Every chapter is great,i love every of it..if i had a good writting skills on english,the former chapters(esp during dark tournament) would've been on my ideas too. .though i preferred not keiko to have noticed of such suspicious behavior might be occurring between k/b, it's shizuru that i had in mind. .heehee. .she seems the silent type like doesnt give a damn about anything and everything and has on her own,but,she seems fitted to that chartacter where watching each people's behavior she'll found enjoyable esp those with puzzling one...ah! Nuff about these. .i felt like im talking to myself..
. . .
So, Port. .wherever and whatever, keep it up!
(And don't mind my mumblings. Probably,im like this for the lack of no one to talk to. Hehe. -'')

OMG you better update ! the story was great
| Eun-Jung chapter 8 . 5/3/2008
Wow... you haven't updated in a year... and I haven't reviewed in forever-so my sins outweigh your lack of activity. But I am here now to remedy that!
First things first: No grammar problems and no spelling problems (none that I could actually catch). Structure is good, and no technical problems to point out.
Rereading this story from beginning to now was nothing short of sheer pleasure. I really loved the slow and almost painful (but necessary) development between Botan and Kurama. At first I was convinced that they would get together like most other silly, happy couples through misunderstandings and humorous mishaps... but of course, you throw me for a loop and have them get together the hard way: through drama, pain, and mass miscommunication. So heartrending...
Your character development (not just the relational development) is superb as well. Granted, I am biased, but I really think you have the characters all down pat. Yusuke is ever the "main" character, brash, proud, and strong-but still kind and sincere. Even better, you've incorporated the unique bond between him and Botan that borders on romance but straddles nicely on close friendship. This relationship always wins me over, especially when it's well written. And, naturally, your interpretation of Kurama and Botan's relationship is really well rendered. While reading the story, I can easily push the story into the series' time line and have no need to squint my eyes and tilt my head sideways to see it working. You explain nicely the subtext of their relationship, why they are distant and almost cold to each other during the series but still have this odd connection that leads us all to believe there is something more.
So the sudden adult situation between Kurama and Botan wasn't quite unexpected-but it was. I was surprised by the quick turn of feelings that had for each other... or really, how quickly they were willing to express and share when they felt uneasy about each other. But their decision wasn't wrong or out of character... because you wrote their complex relationship that way. It flowed with the mood and took life of its own and bothered no one or nothing and added nicely to the business. Good thing this is rated for the older kiddies.
Overall, I love the atmosphere of this story. It's light and cheery when it is but has the capacity to become dark and mature whenever necessary: very much so the feeling I get when I read the original manga. The very abrupt dark turn at the end of this chapter leaves me with a sense of satisfaction knowing that this story won't turn out cliché and that it will really leave a mark on me, as the previous chapters have.
Thank you so much for this piece and I hope you continue writing. I wish you luck and happiness in your endeavors.
