This is honestly probably one of the best stories I have ever read, It was full of humor and the angst parts were really well wrote! You're a great author!

When I started reading this I wanted to punch something. Then I got sad. Then I got happy. Then I got sad again. Then I got a mix of the 2. This has to be the best story I have ever read and to tell you the truth my heart actually hurts. This story is amazing. Thank you so much for writing it.

This is the best Gravitation fic I've ever read, hands down. You made me cry! :)

OK, I read this over a week ago and this is the first chance I've had to review it. Sorry! -.-;;;
Anyway, I have to say that at first I was a little hesitant when I sensed this going in the Ryuichi x Shuuichi direction. Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of that pairing. But, the way you write them both and the way you developed the story and the relationship between them was so damned beautiful, you won me over in spite of my healthy dose of skepticism. :) I LOVE your Ryuichi. I love how he's trying so hard, I love your explanation for his bizarre personality quirks and the way he fights so hard to overcome them. I love the relationship he has with Touma and how Touma, in spite of Ryuichi's faults and problems, still worships him and it breaks him more than a little when Ryuichi pushes him away. I especially loved the ending of this with Ryuichi maintaining his resolved until Shuuichi - with a little prompting ;) - calls him out on it. I also loved the scene in the hospital and the library and entertainment rooms. AW. *beams*
This was just a beautifully intricate and well-written story and I also loved the personal mythology of the crow and the butterfly that you built up for this universe. Thank you SO much for this gorgeous story!

This is in-character, hilarious, beautiful, tragic, and asfhfklhq. I love you and every character in this story, but maybe not the creepy Red guy.

Dang...I don't know what to say. I feel like that anything that comes out will end up sounding extra-extra cliched, but I'll try anyway. This was...a journey, like of self-discovery except not because I've never been in love before so you know... I suppose I can understand that part about love being a disease that eats away at you until there's nothing left, although my side of love is more familial. This is something my English teacher would say that's full of universal truths; everybody can relate on some level. And well, thank you for writing this. Pianissimo Butterfly really touched me, so I hope you'll continue to write stories that give the reader something to think about even if it has ended. Beautiful.

I don't really know if you're gonna read this review, because the last update is from a long time now but... well, actually i'm speechless, so I don't really know why i'm sending a review...
This story is just... so... depressing haha... I'm on my way to crying, and I just feel sick, because of the incredible amount of feelings you've put in this fiction...
Haha, i'm sorry i'm saying weird thing... I feel as numb as ryuichi right now lol... *stop the review here* you are just amazing, thank you for such a wonderful work!

As with the last reviewer, I'm not sure if you'll even see this since the fic was written so long ago, but I can't NOT say anything.
This is beautiful writing. I see on your bio that you are published, and you deserve to be.
I'm an English major so I'm a sucker for this piece's lyrical writing and lovely imagery (even when its macabre lovely). Your characterization of Ryuichi is of course what ties it all together, and it's absolutely heartbreaking. And fascinating. Seeing this story through a fractured mind, through the point of view of someone who so desperately wants to be better but continues to break promises to himself... So human.
Good luck in whatever writing you are doing now, and I hope I get the joy of reading it!

So, I don't know if you still see reviews for this story since it was written so long ago. But I have to say how absolutely amazing this was. I just started watching anime a few months ago (and I'm 25, lol), and Gravitation was the first one I saw... I was instantly hooked. I haven't read much Gravitation fanfic yet, but I've read in lots of other fandoms, so I have an idea of what good or bad fic looks like, lol. This was beautiful... and totally made me cry at the end, too, heh. It also made me laugh a lot, though... that was something that the anime did very well, combining dark and sad with silly and funny... and it was done very well here, too. This story captures the characters so well, every one of them, including (or especially) Ryuichi, who would be a very challenging one to get right, especially in first person POV. Ryuichi's mental instability and sad backstory came through so beautifully. And the way Yuki and Tohma dealt with the whole situation was SO very in-character... I can very easily see Yuki pushing Shuichi away to keep from hurting him even more. And I think Tohma, who is so protective of Yuki, and always behind the scenes taking care of everything, would have reacted exactly like that, even if it meant having Ryuichi and Shuichi hate him. The flashbacks/dreams were handled very well, I wasn't ever confused about where I was in the timeline. And I love the butterfly story... and Ryuichi reading to the sick kids. This might be the longest review I've ever posted on a fic... Anyway, if you read this, great job! _

I really, really like this story. I seriously do. It's full of emotions, lies, love, pain, heartbreak, recovery, insanity, friendship. There's so much drama that it's really hard to guess what will happen next. There's no way of telling. All I could do is read on to find out.
The way you portrayed Ryuichi, and the rest, is so realistic in its own way. You've made the characters of Gravitation your own. You've changed them. You've improvized them. You brought them to life.
Keep up the good work! ;)

that had me in tears...really there's so much to comment on but I don't know how to-wow!

Oh my, I don't even know where to start. All I can say is that this is one of the most memorable fanfics I ever read. It was so beautifully written, so well structured from beginning to end, each part was important to the plot, and nothing ever seemed unnecessary. I've found that in most fanfics I read they can be pretty predictable or at least very simple and not have a well articulated plot, but this fic kept dumbfounding me at every turn. I was so intrigued by all the hidden stuff, and the whole plot twist completely got me off guard. I also love the comedy in it, it was always well placed and made me giggle, and the tragedy was perfect. There was so much going on in this fic, and it made me feel so many things. Forgive me if I'm ranting. I also have to note that I've only read a few Ryuichi Sakuma POVs before but this one was the most accurate and the best described. You really got into his head, and made Gravitation your own. Seriously, this story would have worked completely without Gravitation. You need to write books if you haven't already. UGH okay I'm done, sorry for the rant. It was just so great.
