|Reviews for Vignettes|
| Haprilona chapter 4 . 7/6/2015
Ahh, cuteness overload. You make such... human, or should I say, realistic stories with fantasy characters. It's so nice to read a story where Vincent is content and isn't tormenting himself with the past in a corner. It gives me a fuzzy feeling how Vincent still loves Tifa even when she looks old enough to be his mother.
I don't really know what to say, other than I adore all of your Vincent/Tifa stories, but I think this might be my favourite, if only because we get to see a side of Vincent that doesn't emerge very often.
I realise this review comes like, 11 years late, but good stories never get old, right?

I read this story a really long time ago but it stayed in my mind for the longest time.
I sincerely regretted for the longest time that I forgot to put in on my favorite's list.
But now, I am really thankful that I got to read it again.
The ending is just poignantly bittersweet and probably will forever remain etched in my mind.
Bravo to the writer!

You are a world of amazing. I want you to know that. these Vignettes were absolutely beautiful. and its so hard not to shy away from the kind of moments you seemed to unflinchingly describe, beautifully by the way. I even got a little choaked up, which is very very very unusual. seriously i am so happy you wrote this.

i definitely don't know how you do it, but you manage to write the most beautiful, sincere, clear, emotional and completed stories about vincent and tia relationship.
they are all so clearly pure, like if you can almost feel every single thing the are felling, i have to admit that you have make me cry like two times allready, both refering to tifa death, the letter, their quiet undertanding, the pain of solitude and losing, god i think i'm gonna start crying again jajajajaj i such a cry baby, but it's your fault you make them seem perfect to each other with their fights, their fears, their diferences that the idea of them been apart can simpli espread to much sorrow to be true.
i definitely congratualte you for our beautiful work, even tough i cry like a baby.
love your stories

*pulls out jumbo box of tissues* Oh! I'm gonna be crying off and on now for the rest of the week! This was a lovely series, and I remember back in the day reading the first chapters of the Vin/Tifa story. Yup, this is something that derserves to be read again _ You have a wonderful way of putting things, and I'll be there if you start another story!

Of course I'm happy! Somehow you've ended this arc without making me cry or sending me into depression. The story feels finished now. Before, I always felt there had to be more, but now it feels complete. I'm sad to see it end, but like all good things, etc... I stand in awe of your mad writing skillz.
I'm sure I'll revisit these fics many times. At least until Vincent presents you with more plot bunnies (and you know he will)...

I had such a wonderful time reading your fics. They are truly beautiful, all of them. I enjoy taking part as an observer in Vincent-Tifa universe throughout your words, and your fics were certainly moments that help made my spare time worth while.

*grins* You're welcome. You're very very welcome. _
One last review for one last story... makes me a little sad. They've been such good stories! _ I'll miss them for sure. Then again, there is that one VincentxOC story you wrote that I haven't read yet... hm. *Grins*
In any case, it's been a great run. This chapter made a perfect conclusion for it all. It left me feeling... content, I suppose with the situation. You could just feel the heartache that Vincent had carried alone for so long but you could also feel him stepping away from it. For that reason, I loved the sunrise. It was like a new beginning. Nice symbolism. I loved the narration at that point. There were quite a few notable lines. One of my favs had to be 'It had been like walking into her arms after years of being away from home'. It really set the tone of this piece for me... coming home, finally letting things rest. A touch of sadness mixed in with a little bit of hope. It was really, really well done.
I loved Trina in this too. I loved how you subtly drew little comparisons between her and Tifa all the while maintaining that this was *not* Tifa, that she was someone else. The comparison though gave us a little bit of hope that, yes, it really would work out for Vincent.
The way you tied all of this into that moment with Jordan after the funeral was very nice. It really emphasized the feeling of the story, a sort of weary happiness. Like coming home after a long, long trip. Which, in a way, it was. For that reason, I loved the last line of the piece especially.
Well, that is that. One last long review for you. Heh. Sorry, can't help myself. I always seem to have a lot of things to say. _~ It's been quite a ride but it's been a pleasure. I suppose I'll keep you on author alert... just in case. _~

I have to say that you’re an incredible writer. You put emotions and thoughts as a primary, just like we do in our own lives. We all reaches for happiness, afraid to die, people search for immortality and live in the opposite.
| Verdot chapter 9 . 12/14/2004
So you've noticed me around, eh? Good, I like to encourage. Well, since this is the last chapter, I'll make this one a little bit longer. I don't like to waste words, so I hope I don't babble too much.
I can see the tie-in with Legacy, which is a beautiful piece in itself. This was understated, in many ways, sort of a quiet exhalation into the end... fading away, I suppose. Perfect way to end it.
What a ride. Your writings always leave me feeling... at a loss of breath and words. You focus on the people, and less on the scenery, a habit that I use in my own writing, and seeing it from someone like you makes it feel like less of a cop out on my part.
I love your characterizations, and I'd have to say that you created the first OC I've ever liked on (Lily, of course). Every fanfic writer has their own version of the characters, and I adore your version of Vincent. Reminds me of someone I used to know, and someone I see around once and awhile. Pretty good, for an optional game character. Other characters would benefit from your writing, that's for certain.
I most appreciate the mature and wise nature of your writing. You teach little lessons, probably without knowing it. You make clear and lingering impressions. If only everyone could leave such an impact. I would never stop reading fanfiction!
You were the writer who inspired my first fanfiction. And made me the Vincent/Tifa addict I am now. Thank you. It has deepened my experience as a reviewer. For that is what am I, above all, a reader.
I sound like T. Pirate now (with less finesse, I might add)... hope this wasn't a total bore! And glad to see that my reviews are actually read. Often people as, epic almost, as you tend to gloss over the short little reviews. You've furthered my respect for you.

I'm so proud of you! I don't know you either, but hell I love you too. ::gives you Vincent shaped cookies:: Goodness, what a lovely story. Certainly not the ending I was expecting. Not as sad as I anticipated, and THANK GOD... You might add another chapter though, cuz you did that last time I thought it was the last chapter. Whatever. This is lovely as is. I just love all of your characterizations, the realistic style... You made the characters your own, though Square would eat me for saying such things. I adore your VincentXTifa stories... Thanks for taking the time to write them. Your writing's gotten better and better with every story. I'll be reading them over and over again. Vin, Vinny, Vincent. I came, I saw, I glomped Vincent. Don't ever stop writing. I better read more stuff from you one of these days, but for now you can take a break. ;)
