Oh dear...I certainly didn't see that coming. I think I'm still stunned...just for a moment I thought they would have a happy ending, and we'd get to see them going on dates - or double dates, considering Junpei and Izumi - and get all cute and nice and sweet and whatever that'd make us onlookers fall off the chairs because of the fluffiness, and...and...and...I'm just rambling now aren't I. I guess thats what makes a tragedy - as an author once said, "Ripping something perfect in front of your eyes".
*Stifles a sob*Either way, I think you done a perfect job with this fic! It was captivating, had an interesting (but cruel) setting, and the Koukuya parts were done greatly! The epilogue trully broke my heart...it always hurts most to remember the sweet moments knowing that the other has passed away.

As soon as i saw the title of this chapter i knew that there was no way that i wouldnt finish this fic without crying and my heart breaking
You truly are a great writer
When i read the words "He Had" I couldnt take it anymore... the tears came tumbling out and i couldn't stop sobbing.
I should have realized what the ending would be when i originally read the words in chapter 5 "The Thunder Demon then realized his mistake, knowing that in a way the brunette and Kouji were like the two female demons. Whether or not their fate would foreshadow the future was impossible to tell this early on, and the entire team each silently prayed none of them would meet an end like that."
Thank You for writing this truly captivating fic. Thank you for reminding me that the real world doesnt have many happy endings. You made me cry. But I'm happy... for some strange reason...
Oh Kouji, why did you die? *stares forlonly into the distance*

I guess this just shows that not every fanfic author writes with a happy ending for fanfics with chapters.
It's pretty good, but it's kinda confusing sometimes

this story was so sad...but i still love it! 3
| pirara96 chapter 19 . 8/7/2009
the epilogue held so much emotion, it touched my heart, especially the last two sentences. I actually started to cry.
Kouji and Takuya suffered so much and then when it was almost all over Kouji goes and dies. It broke my heart i can't even begin to imagine what i would have felt like if i was in Takuya's positioned, but i think you discribed it well.

Well! It took me two whole days to read this story. Let me just say everything on my mind, if I can remember everything that is...
First off, this story had a very good pace. The development of the characters were excellent. I especially liked how Tomoki's character developed from the child he is to a maturing adult at the end. Your story's pace was just right. Izumi's and Junpei's relationship is there but it is subtle just like in the real world. Love is something that grows. You just proved that fact in your story.
The Digimon and other anime characters were nicely done. Not OOC but well-rounded in fact. Your OCs were enchantingly unique. They were not simple side-characters. I grew to love the fox-spirit Cursed and to empathize with Kisei's group.
Then, there's the way you describe Takuya and Kouji's relationship. They were friends as they were lovers. It was sweet and we all saw how fragile a person Kouji actually is. The care shown for each other was significant. And beautiful. It gives their love depth. Not just a hollow relationship.
Last was the ending. One word to describe it. Lovely. It had touches of reality in it, showing people it's not just a 'lovey-dovey' scene all the time in the real world. There are many harsh realities in our world and this is one of them. I loved your ending, even if it did tear my heart out. The flashback of memories was a nice personal touch too. The last two words 'he had' that was all it took for me to smile.
All in all, it was a wonderful story. I could go on forever but there could be countless descriptions for me to write. I thank you for making me enjoy this fanfiction. Kudos to you, Lady Lemonade!

| Sailor Epyon chapter 19 . 10/23/2006
Don't let some of those reviews get you down. Anyway, after a long fic-reading hiatus, I shall give you my honest two cents.
I think I cried for ten minutes over the ending (for some weird reason, I think the song I was listening to "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid made me even more sobbish, but I was going to cry anyway). Please don't be apologetic, because when a fic can move me to tears, it's obviously written very well, in my opinion. I've read enough angst and tragedy over the years to appreciate the beauty of it, when it's written correctly. I have to say, it's been a long time since a fanfiction has moved me in such a way...then again, I've only started reading again. Still, though...this fic in its entirety was tremendously wonderful, and I enjoyed reading every single word, whether it was angsty, joyous, tragic, frustrating, etc. The fact that I actually experienced these emotions means that you described things beautifully.
The memories and Takuya's input on those memories toward the end? Priceless. It was a very nice touch, and to be honest, it was a nice way to end things, angstily (That a word? It is now.). The tragedy of a person probably never seeing the one he loves again is just so real, and is rarely incorporated into fanfiction (it reminds me of this SasuNaru masterpiece in my favorites list). This fic does not suck, and the ending definitely wasn't shitty. There's nothing wrong with adding a dose of realism into your stories, especially if that's how you wanted it to end. Let's just face it, death is final, at least, on this side of the plane, depending on your beliefs and things...but I'm suck at being philosophical so I'll just leave it at that. It's your fic, darling, and I was just ever so happy to read it. And I'll read it again and again and again. It's in my favorites for a reason.
Kouji was just so wonderful and heroic and everything I expected him to be. I honestly felt this feeling of forbodement earlier on about the possibility of one or more of the main charas dying, but you still caught me a bit off guard. That's a good thing. The Device was pretty freaking awesome, and Kouichi is such a great friend for sticking with Taku in the aftermath.
All in all, don't be discouraged. I loved this fic immensely, and I had a lot of fun reading it on the roller coaster it rode on. Anyway, I'm sorry for any typos I missed in this review, and I'm sorry for rambling on and on, but I've always done that, so meh...
As for the wish, if I can't wish for reincarnation, then I'll just wish for flying, loyal GIRs who will do my bidding during my takeover, yaoi endings (or whatever ending I want in whatever series/manga/game I want), and all the chocolate chip cheesecake that I can eat. How can I incorporate all of that into one wish, I wonder...
| Guest chapter 2 . 8/21/2006
That was the worst fic ever; I can't believe you killed taichi, then you killed KOUJI! WTF is up with that huh? and you didn't even let takuya die and be with his lover in the end how cruel! i never seen such a worst fanfic ever where the people and or yaoi couple i adore die and can't be togeather! M

| Kichi Hisaki chapter 19 . 8/5/2006
You're... You're horrible! Don't they get a wish? Anything they want if they win the tournament? If so, why can't he just ask for Koujiu back? Why? This... This is the best worst fic I've EVER READ! -Cries a never ending rain of tears at Kouji's death-
