I actually really like this. Your snarkiness for Riku is wonderful, and you've done a great job putting everything together. I hope you'll continue working on this, at the very least to allow us to see where you want to go with it. All the best, Windstar

Aw I really like this story. It's funny, it's sad, it's Kaiku. What's NOT to like? I love funny. I love sad. I ADORE Kaiku. XD I love this story! Keep it up! I really love this!

The way you write is amazing.
| AGCourtney chapter 2 . 2/27/2009
This is AMAZING.

I usually don't review until after I've finished the story, but HOLY CRAP, that was great. xD

Ok, this chapter had so MANY good lines in it. I love Riku here so much! XD ITs hilarious. And poor Mickey. Dealing with that. XD
"My newfound acquaintance eventually managed to pull himself up against the opposite wall, grimacing in the light of the ownerless eyeballs. I jiggled them around just for emphasis. I have no soul."
Yeah. That was evil, yet hilarious. Again, poor Mickey. XDD
And that spat about killing vs KOing their opponents was classic. XD I mean... I still can't wrap my mind around Mickey being a fighter. Like, at all. lol And, apparently, neither can Riku at this point.
*Ouch* at the end, though. lol Riku was right. The mouse has an attitude. XD
This entire chapter made me burst out laughing a bunch of times. (Which can get embarrassing since I am reading this in a public place. _ ) Riku is just SO sardonic. XD This is very entertaining.
Also have to say I love the Riku/Kairi spin you have in here, too. I haven't actually reached the end of KH1 yet, so I don't know what happens in the game, but I like how you are telling events so far.

ah ha! I knew there was a reason for the happy little feeling I got when I clicked on that link!
you, my friend, are without doubt the best writer I have ever read. No joke. Really, honestly.
But yeah. Although angst usually makes me gag, the snark/sarcasm helping just totally pulled it off, and I didn't even mind the angst-probably 'cause it's Riku, and, let's face it, he's just a bucket of angst.
so yeah. thanks a lot-for writing this and whatnot.

Yet another one of your fics I should have reviewed forever ago. I never read the original version of this, I should add.
Have you ever read the book 'You Don't Know Me' by...David Klass (I think that was his name)? Your writing style (especially when you write Riku) reminds me so much of that book.
You do such a wonderful job of capturing Riku in all of his angsty-cynicism. The angst would be enough to kill somebody if there wasn't your usual infusion of sarcasm. It makes the whole thing more entertaining and much more readable than it would be if it was just straight angst and drama.

I... I never reviewed on this chapter. O_O I have no idea why.
Because it is so much love.
The blinking segment always makes me laugh. It also makes me blink wildly, just to make sure I'm not ADD.
All the tiny nuances of Mickey and Riku's relationship... the "your planet", the "because you need it", the endearments (though I doubt they'll ever really go any way but Mickey to Riku, because if you start doing it BOTH ways, we really will have "Flaming" Shadows. Bow-chika-wow-wow-NYU. *cry*); they all work together so well and balance out Riku's insane amounts of angst.
I love how tripping over your own shoes/rock can catapault into a marathon of angst/nostalgia and not, as most other people would suffer from, total embarrassment.
Michael: How'd you hurt yourself pal?
Riku: I TRIPPED OVER MY SHOES, SHUT UP AND LEAVE ME ALONE! *mentally* /Kairi~/

Hm, where do I start? I've been reading your stuff for quite awhile now, actually this story is what got me started reading fanfiction altogether, I forget where I saw it, but I got a link to your story from another website and I was immediately in love. I love your writing style, it makes me laugh out loud, and very few things do that to me, I'm usually quite quiet. I've been keeping track of this story for a long time, and you don't know how happy I am to see you return to Flaming Shadows! I think I almost cried, lol. This is one of my all time favorite stories, even after I've read many more, I even printed out all the chapters so I could take them to school with me and reread them. XD I think I've reread it at least seven times now. I even got my friend hooked on it too, we share inside jokes about this story and people look at us funny. :) The most common ones we use are the waterfall part and reciting the part where riku watches the flushing toilet, lol. We know those lines by heart, my printout I made of the chapters are now curling at the edges with use and have coffee stains on them. X3 I can't wait to see how you'll change the chapters, but it saddens me slightly that I'll have to wait for you to elaborate on the parts that you haven't gotten to yet. Right now I'm rereading Repercussions of Femininity and I will write a review for that too. :) You'll be seeing me around and I promise I will leave a more specific review next time, but it's 2 right now and I'm going to go to bed soon, so if you see any typos, ignore them. XP Cya!

Ah Flaming Shadows.
My first love xD.
I'm sad that it's getting redone yet knowing you, you'll just blow my mind all over again.
Looking forward to it. I've always love the way you characterize 2D characters until they're actually likable.
| dark wink chapter 1 . 2/23/2008
This is wonderfully irreverent. I love it! The eyeball scene very nearly made me laugh out loud; I had to will myself to a closed-mouth chortle(I've always wanted to chortle) to keep water from spraying everywhere. Hope the revamping goes well.
| Childhood Aspirations chapter 2 . 1/16/2008
I forgot to review this too. Oops. Allow me to rectify that.
I still love this story, and it's even better now that you're reworking it and fixing little things that you don't like. Your portrayal of Riku is exactly how he would be if Kingdom Hearts hadn't been made in collaborating with Disney characters... It's just hilarious, 'cause you're totally poking fun at the game's innocence the entire time, like how Mickey is always so darn perky and happy and optimistic- I sympathize with Riku. I wouldn't want to be stuck in Kingdom Hearts with that mouse either.
I remember liking this chapter when I read it the first time. The flashback was nice; it kind of provides a little insight into the relationship that the threesome had, even as kids. Sora's hilarious; he's such a dork.
You're amazing, naturally. Update soon!
| Tifa-Carbuncle chapter 2 . 1/13/2008
YAY. RIKU. ANGST.
..ok, enough caps.
I felt more sad for Riku than lulz in this chapter. Just wanted to pick him up and squeeze him until his head popped off. Poor thing. *pats his head*
And I see what you did thar. With Larsa. :p Maybe we can fit in Balthier! The story needs at least one drawled out 'Bloody hell.'
| Tifa-Carbuncle chapter 1 . 1/12/2008
:o I thought this story sounded familiar! I read the old version! Or at least a good bit of it. Read it to my kid brother, too, who got a massive kick out of it. Reworked and even funnier. Moar. Nao. Please?
"For all I know, had I intentionally suffocated myself, I may have very well ended up in the Underworld with Hades looming over me going, ‘Well kiddo, guess what? You fucked it up again.’"
Had me in hysterics. I love Hades first off. Second off I could see him saying that and going all red-fire hair for dramatic emphasis. Great mental imagery.
