On a re-reading streak of my POT faves, lovelovelove this story so much! So realistic and innocent ugh thank you for writing this

Aaand that's the reason I think Ryuzaki-sensei is the coolest adult character in the series!
I was sure I reviewed it before (on AO3?LJ? I don't know), but those stories just deserve a repetitive praise; a) you don't push the characters into the dynamics of a girly uke and manly seme (this doesn't work with GP now, does it?) b) you write so many throw-ins from their lives and thoughts that it feels so amazingly natural, c) your sense of humor is just plain amazing, I've never before found an author to mix the feelings of uneasiness, worry or fluff with a random comment about floss (yes, it sent me to the floor the first time I read the fic, and now, as I was rereading it, it still caused me to laugh out loudly) and managed to made it sound like a very logical whole.
I loved it! If only you did manage to return to a Perfect Whole...

...I want to marry this story... That doesn't even make sense at all but aigghkhsgjgjjlhsfh! I loved this so much! The songs at the beginning of each chapter was a nice touch (I LOVE Somewhere Only We Know!) and everything was rather well written. It was completely realistic and I don't know how many times I had to stop and fan girl because the feels were just too much! I just got into the Prince of Tennis fandom recently and The Golden Pair is my new OTP so I've spent the past like 3 days nonstop reading fan fics about them and this one is defiantly one of my favorites! For real great story I loved it!

This was really beautiful. I love how you wrote about Eiji's family dealing with it. I also really love the interactions between Eiji and Oishi...it was so sweet and real.
| Kimihearts chapter 15 . 2/21/2012
This can't be it! So what happened with Eiji's family? But gosh it was a great GP fic. Love it!
Go to hell Tetsu! You suck.
| RejectedByMostButLovedByAll chapter 15 . 10/1/2010
it kinda ended abruptly
no problems were solved but at least they were happy with each other
other than that, i really enjoyed this
it was well written but oishi's name is spelt shuichiro, not syuichiro
i looked it up on wikipedia a while ago

So cute! This was really amazing. True, maybe it didn't have too much of a plot line. Who cares? You write them really well, and I liked the epilogue with Sumire a lot. It really summed things up. It's amazing how you could make a good story just chapter by chapter. I can't... ; Trying, considering I have a story already started and I want to actually get somewhere in it, but unfortunately I have no idea what to do with it so it doesn't get boring. How do you make a story interesting without a definite plot? *sigh* I just don't understand the mechanics of that.
I don't like Tetsu. Then again, that was probably the point. The rest of his siblings seemed nice enough, though. Hope there's enough of that sequel out so I can get started in that. I really don't know why non-plot-driven things are so interesting, but I guess it's just word choice and liking the pairing that keep it going...
Do you have any idea?
| Kloudy Reignfall chapter 15 . 10/4/2009
Ah, what a lovely story. Lighthearted and really just fun to read. _ A great Golden Pair fic! And the ending was very fitting, I think. (Although, I almost wanted to read Eiji's talk with his dad, as uncomfortable as it was bound to be.) So there's a sequel, eh? I guess I'll have to add you to my watch list, so I don't miss out on it!
Good luck with it! And thank you very much. I enjoyed your story immensely! )
Until next time,

I wasn't particularly planning to review until I'd finished reading, but after the end of this first chapter, I felt I just had to express my thoughts, which more or less go like this:
Oh, you beautifully tricky so-and-so! I was not expecting that! But it's just so perfect! That last part absolutely cemented my desire to continue reading. B You just had to go and change it up from Eiji being the crushing one to Oishi being the crushing one (undeniably, because you can't deny dreams!), which just seems so opposite of what I typically see. I love it. _
Er. Alright. On I go!
| xXviolenceisgolden chapter 4 . 9/26/2009
This is Chapter Four I'm Reviewing.
I like your story so far! Very Cute!
Eiji and Oishi are acting within character. YOu have some interesting ideas, too. If someone who knew you read this, they'd probably be able to guess you wrote it. Some of your personality and catchphrases are coming into the story. THAT IS NOT A BAD THING.
BTW, In this particular chapter, you have got sadistic and masochistic mixed up. Just thought I'd Mention.

You know, I can understand why this is one of your favorite works. It is very difficult to write well and consistently in first person (especially in multiple first persons) and yet you do it so well! And really, there is nothing boring about romance. Romance is one of the truest things there is to write about, and though it's easy to fall into cliches and whatever, you managed to avoid them all. This story was sweet and emotional, with the perfect mix of angst and warm fluffiness that made it all seem so real.
Honestly, this is one of the best stories I've read in a long while. I know this is an older story, so I'm really excited to read your more recent stuff and see how much you've improved. After writing something like "The Other Half", I know your writing can only get better. :)
| Slashyme chapter 15 . 4/25/2009
This is exactly how I imagine the Golden Pair to be like :) I love the way they interact with each other. Can't wait to read the sequel!
| Kaleena1247 chapter 15 . 1/3/2009
good job.. nice story..
| Kitty-Loves-Dave chapter 15 . 12/26/2008
Whie hullo thar. Just dropping by to tell you that I thought your story was fantastic. I really like your writing style. It's really good, even though I don't know how to describe it. I guess it's kind of subtle. If that makes any sense at all. It probably doesn't. Oh well.
Anyways, I'd like to know if those are the real names of Eiji's siblings, or did you just pick some names and give them those? I've always wanted to know what their names were.
Really really great. I especially loved the dinner scenes with Eiji's family. They were done really well.
| Khelek-sul Renai chapter 15 . 12/14/2008
OH MY GOSH! I LOVE THIS STORY!
...And that enough all caps to express my feelings. It's very good, deserves all the reviews it got and more, makes sense, and does too have a plot in a way: the plot is the manga's storyline and how the families found out afterward.
Well written and highly enjoyed.
