I feel so silly.
Just when I was thinking that I found the possibly second best person at writing Yuffie (and just writing in general), I scroll back up and find that all along it has been you! (Care to take a guess at who's the person that takes first place? That's right. Vous-Tu-You [: )
Now I just feel like whatever I was going to say will be repetitive. Because my natural spiel for all your stories, this one being no exception, is that it's amazing, and ohmyGod- are you sure you didn't secretly write Yuffie's character in the games. And I wasn't reading - I was freakin' dancing through a poem... with overly long verses.
And for some reason, I really like the part about Sora & their time as heroes; it's just... I've never really taken the FF characters' perspective into mind when playing KH (I guess it's only natural that we think about the main protagonist) but it really hits deep and just, wow.
That was my whole reaction through: just. Wow.

It's been a while since I read this one - or maybe I never read it at all. But you do Yuffie so well, and you made it sweet and bitter, and hurtful and beautiful and wonderful and grieving and hot.
From someone who has RP'd as both Leon and Yuffie, you make it work so wonderfully well. 3

I'm not usually a fan of het, but I saw this fic recced on the LJ community FF7, and it intrigued me.
I have to say that I don't regret taking the time to read it: it's sad but not too angsty and really loved it.

I believe this story has been on my favorites list for some time and I'm viciously kicking myself for never reviewing it... I think it has something to do with that fact that it was posted YEARS ago, but that really shouldn't matter.
What DOES matter is that this is one of my favorite stories. Ever. Not just on fanfiction, but out of everything I've evereverever read. I laughed through this, I cried through this. It made me hurt and it made me hope and it made me -feel-
This site needs more authors like you and stories like this.
So, while my review is -extremely- delayed, I hope it still manages to somehow give you a glimpse of how much I adore this fic

This is so jumpy and random, and so not, at the same time, which just makes it Yuffie. I used to have better grammar skills, but then I read this and my brain just fell out of my head. But I'm sure you get that a lot.
I especially love Yuffie here; there's something so grown up about her, but also something that reminds me of a child, and it's the perfect mix.
Vaguely crossing KH and FF cannon is a favorite undertaking of mine-I'm rather glad that the game didn't actually tie it all together, because then fics like this would have never been born.
And because I could just rant all day about the lines (all...all of them) that I liked the best, or other constructive, intelligent things like that, I will just sum this review up with one last sentiment. I've decided that I want to have this fic's babies.
It's amazing! Finally, something good to be found in the KH section...

Absolutely amazing. I enjoyed reading this so much. It's written so beautifully and it's so descriptive. And extremely satisfying. I almost always feel like something's wrong with what I read, usually something's missing, or it's too rushed, or it just doesn't fit right somehow, but not with this fic. This fic is amazing. Very, very nice job!

I want you to write books, SO BAD, because I would buy them and read them every six months or so and never lend them out or anything. Over the years, your writing has kind of burrowed into my brain and left a hollowed out space all its own, and every once in a while, I gotta come back and tell you how much your stories mean to me. They're amazing, especially this one, and I'm going to keep reading them 'till I'm dead.

This was amazing, and the descriptions were beautiful. This was funny and yet heartbreaking to read at the same time. I loved all the mentions of the others, and how Leon and Yuffie compare each other to them. The last part killed me in the best way possible.
| llivla chapter 1 . 5/5/2008
My heart and my first born.
I really have nothing to say that can possibly be expressed in words; just tell you that this has EVERYTHING I always thought wound around the Yuffie/Leon you randomly put in there and should be so wrong but was so amazing andandand
Okay I guess I found something to say after all. :'D

This is a Leon/Yuffie classic...hell, it's a KH/Final Fantasy classic. You need prizes.
| k123 chapter 1 . 9/5/2007
This was so beautiful. Like, I normally don't like Leon/Yuffie as a pairing but the way you write it makes it so believable and just real. It's not perfect and it's not all they ever wanted but it's there and true and enough, everything they need and nothing like they thought it would be. I really really liked this.
| sihaya chapter 1 . 7/27/2007
I love the way you write Yuffie. Miles-per-minute, all chatter and heartache - she is so real. They're all so real, and plaintive, and sweet in their sadness and exhaustion.
| afriendtosell chapter 1 . 6/10/2007
Perfect in every way. The imagery, the way everything seems to interwoven; I love it.
| El Burrito chapter 1 . 1/8/2007
wow that was lovely and very in-character and awesome-o to the max. Really, really well done.
| kashii chapter 1 . 10/27/2006
I love this story. It's written very well, with the characters dancing around the truths that make them hurt and trying not to touch when that's all they really want. One thing though:
Cloud, who was more than half-deranged and fought at the Coliseum before he would eat and drink and wore the (...) and and and, and now they're back Here, more Leon's home than her home and less his home than it is their prison.
"Wore the" what?
