Professor Takenouchi is Haruhiko. His wife is Sumiko.
By the way, since Takenouchi is the male family name, there's no way the necklace in chapter one could be a *Takenouchi* family heirloom and be passed down on through the *female* side of the family.
THe story would also be more interesting if there was a *decent* rival. Someone who isn't Taichi, but who is just as nice as Yamato, but with an entirely different personality, that Sora finds herself attracted to. Who also likes Sora the way she is. If no one else who she *wants* to like is what she's looking for, then there is *no* mystery in the story at all for their emotions. It's predictable. And seriously entertain the idea of Sora falling for this other person. It'll make the writing more believable. THAT is what I was referring to in my last review. Taichi isn't eligible so his liking he doesn't count. But if someone who *is* also likes her, and is a good person...it lends some REAL conflict, instead of "good guy" versus "bad guy" for the prize of Sora's heart.
THe guys could even be *human* and make mistakes where she's concerned, accidently treating her like a prize of some kind, or something creative like trying to impress her too much. They don't really know her, after all, so they will make mistakes. It lends depth and realism that way. Without something like this, the story's just...blah.
And just why would Yamato be assigned to her room? And what would that have to do with how much time they spend around each other? Do they intend to let Sora "help" with the redecorating? If she's just sitting there twiddling her thumbs, that's going to interfere in the work. If she's helping, she's not doing the duties that she has as a princess. Which are far more than finding a husband and looking pretty.
Did you know that real medieval princesses were taught the use of weaponry, in order to defend their homes in case they were attacked while the men were off fighting wars? And that ruling queens often took the field with their armies, and many of them *won* their battles? You're resorting to stereotypes (the Brave and Unique Warrior Princess) instead of Sora's personality. Is there something wrong with her being her warm, caring, brave, *normal* self? With normal parents who love her and let her do what she can to be herself, within the bounds and dictates of society? Such as wearing informal clothes at informal times, but wearing formal attire when it's something ceremonial. That's called compromise and a sign of maturity.

Great chappie! Well, sorta bland, but it helps clear up what you're making the characters act like. _ But don't listen to me. I'm only a writer who is constantly ignored...!

I agree with your anonymous reviewer. This is way too predictable. And the fact that we have a damn good idea that this will probably be a Sorato, what's the point? Where's the interesting part? We all basically have an indication on where this is going to go, so there's no real surprise. Kind of boring, if you ask me. And I doubt any tragedies will occur considering you have it half humor. So, there's no real plot twists of any kind. But maybe I'm wrong, maybe this will somehow be different than every other medieval fic in this section. Maybe you'll surprise us. I hope you do.

Mwahahahaha. Malcolm is a stupid name fans made up and is not his real name. It's Hiroaki. There is no dub name for him. And Nancy's real name is Natsuko. In case you wanted to know. Update soon, tis very good!

anonymous reviewer, again u r being an ass. of course Sora n Yamato will fall in love because after all, this is a Sorato. …at least i'm guessing it is. n for god's sake, how the fuck do u know she's met every fucking guy in the world? i seriously doubt she has. recall Taichi? doesn't Taichi understand Sora n accepts her for who she is? so, hun, Yamato isn't just the only one who sees Sora differently. the fact that there's a chance that this is 97% a Sorato, n that Taichi n Sora r such close friends that they can pass for brother n sister, Yamato will b the one to capture Sora’s heart. get w/ the program, dear.
theladyknight, again a splendid job. i love the idea. out of all the medieval AU fictions, this is my favorite that i’ve read. i hope to read more soon. n if any flamer is acting like there’s a pole up their ass n don’t even explain how to improve or wutever, don’t give a fuck wut they wrote. 95% it’s crap. c ya later, hun.

Hey, I'ma liking! Hehheh, Matt/Sora fic, eh? I can't wait! *is waiting for the next chappie* XD

They're going to fall in love. And get married. And there will be a minor kerfluffle about Sora marrying 'beneath her', but Yamato will either prove himself somehow and become ennobled, or will prove to actually be nobility/royalty in disguise, or they'll just get married anyway, because ONLY Yamato of AL the people in the world she could marry likes Sora the way she is. Every other eligible prospect is an ass who wants her to be a mindless brood mare and who can't comprehend she's different. Because every other human being on the planet except her One True Soulmate is just like that. How else could she know who to pick?

This fic is absolutely positively AMAZING! The description is so vivid, the plot is original, the characters are so...themselves! yet they fit so well into the story.
Don't let Marcus get away with framing Matt like that! Must condemn Marcus to Hell! Somebody's gotta protect Sora from that evil rat, please bring back Matt asap!
I love Sorato. I love this fic. Thanks lots lots lots lots to you theladyknight! Please update asap!
