| Myshu chapter 6 . 6/29/2008
See, it's really vexing to try to express my thoughts and feelings over this chapter when a crowd of people has already flooded this box with "x and y and even z was excellent, I cried and laughed and cried while laughing, you rock." Now I can't even say this was awesome without sounding as generic as a hallmark card, because it's been said and will continue to be said for a long time-maybe that speaks enough.
Meta-logic aside, I still can't decide who my favorite character is. Just when I'm about to consider one for the axe, s/he/it does something heartfelt or hilarious or just plain badass to win me back over. Though, for the top three: Reeve "Pass the Bong" Tuesti, Yuffie "Jailbait" Kisaragi and Cloud "Asshole" Strife (count on me to have my favorite line being Barret saying so. That golden wire shite was ASTOUNDINGLY stupid in the game; I'm surprised so many don't remember it. Maybe they blocked it out-and ironically Cloud didn't.)
Basically any conversation involving Yuffie and sex was hilariwin.
Glad to see this good thing hasn't come to an end yet.

This story being updated after such a depressingly long hiatus is maybe the most exciting thing that has ever happened at this site.
Loved the line about thanking Reeve for his contribution of the chocobo lure.
Great to see you back in action.
| Iseki chapter 6 . 6/29/2008
we missed you.
I want to cry a million times over for their hardships! every time I read you it becomes the goddamned truth, and next time I fire up kigdom hearts I will smack Cloud extra hard.
Reeve, bloody Reeve, I love him. Loco-weed-high-as-a-kite-reeve is my new secret man crush.
If I manage to connect a pencil to paper without sobbing over my first sketch I will draw you multitudes of fanart.

Before I say anything, I must first calm my raging fangirl impulse to squee until I passout. Primarily I'd like to point out that 'OMG U UPDATED! SQUEE!' and say that you've officialy made my month, my next month, and the one following that. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Okay, time for reviewing. Woo!
The first day unrolled perfectly. I fell bck into the story like there hadn't been a huge gap since the last update. Like I'd just read it yesterday and you're plunged into the absurd horror of their situation. The world is dead, they are not, the darkness is taking over. It's fabulous. (Also, 'His Royal Batshit' ROFL)
One of my favorite things about your story is that, despite all teh detail and the great description, the plot is pretty damn straight forward: world is ending, nothing they can do about it, boo-hoo, let's watch the Planet go to hell, shall we? It's hard to get confused...well, it is if you red this fic word for word like I do anyway.
And you should be told every hour of every day that you write Yuffie brilliantly. No, actually, you just write brilliantly. I love reading every line just because of how cleverly its all written and that's not something I find very often even among published authors. So yay! You rock, just in case no one told you.
A great strength of this story is quite simply the amazing voice that is so quinessentially and totally Yuffie, who is the weirdest and most awesome narrator to a horrific catastrophe that you can have. She makes the end of the world, mass death, terror, and people dying in freezers hilarious and awful and amazing.
( Seriously, so many people do 'FF7 char before Kingdom Hearts' fics, but they suck. Hard. This one is pure awesome. )
Major highlight: Reeve on loco weed. I agree with Yuffie, so glad to be present for the bit on Elena. Also, how he occassionally talks like Cait Sith and says this little gem right her: "Reno, he carried off 'boy hooker' with style. You just kind of suck." Ahh...so happy.
(Oh! And the whole golden shiny wire bit - you MUST explain the inside joke or I shall scream becuse I laughed so hard my sister kept staring at me funny.)
Ending was amazing. The battle between the Emerald WEAPON and the massive water Heartless (and Tifa punching Cloud in the face). You get to feeling that - yeah - the Planet's going to end, crack open like an egg, surrender its heart and send everything and everyone left spinning into the dark. Can't wait for the next chapter.
Not a fangirl, but I'm fangirling nontheless. Lovely to hear from you. Hope to hear again soon.

Wow, was this a pleasant surprise. It's been awhile.
Yuffie's POV is hilarious as always, and Bugfuck-Insane!Cloud is surprisingly enjoyable.
| Shoegazer chapter 6 . 6/28/2008
Oh, hey, there you are.
I haven't followed this fic very closely, and to be honest I'd forgotten about it after all this time, but since you're updating it again, I will mention that I like your creepy Cloud at the end of this chapter.
And you have probably managed the only Yuffie-centric fanfic I have ever or will be ever interested in reading and following.
I'll try to catch up/refresh myself on this before you get the next bit up.
| Novocain chapter 6 . 6/28/2008
*hands over chocolate chip cookie absent-mindedly* You know, if I didn't already have a wife and a fiancee, I would totally ask you to marry me. In fact, let's not let that get in the way. Polygamy is awesome. Will you marry me? I just - you write Yuffie's voice so incredibly well. This story is painful with a side of amusement, and I love it and I love you. You have no idea how ecstatic I was to see this in my inbox, and now you're promising July. July? Really? This is fantastically brilliant, truly.
By the way, I love what you've done with Reeve. The stoned things he says are in perfect keeping with the style of this story: painful and amusing.

FDSKFjdKLJFDJSHFSDJK AMAZING. That story... wuh. Seriously amazing. It's incredibly depressing, but at the same time so full of wit and hilarity, that I can't stop laughing. Your Yuffie makes my life. And I kinda want to marry Barrett now. brb going to elope
| thielih chapter 6 . 6/28/2008
Reading this makes me love Reeve (and everyone else) so badly.
Hope life isn't being too harsh. I wait with bated breath for the next chapter!

A NEW CHAPTER!
| Negative Creep chapter 6 . 6/27/2008
And here I was thinking this was going to never get finished. Excellent as always. I can't tell you how much I love this story.
| Ceriene chapter 6 . 6/27/2008
"I pray to a multitude of heathen gods that there will be toilet paper," I said, and that was that, there was no more compelling reason to go.
Favorite line, right there. *amused* I'm always glad I follow this fic. You manage to twist tragedy and humor into one, so it's always a good read. Hope to see more soon. :3

Oh God. You had to update at the time where FFNET's alerts are down. Luckily I check ffnet everyday...
AND OMG. You updated. You updated and the world is right again!
There were so many lines full of win. The sexy Cloud posing. The Knight of the Round materia in Mr. Tootles.
My heart bleeds for Reeve...
And then I spent the entirety laughing at high-on-loco-weed-Reeve... Lol. You write good crack. xD
Tifa naked, awe-inspiring. Bouncing... Lololol...
"We'll travel to die with Her" ? IS Cloud talking about Aerith or the PLanet? /
Update soon! You make people happy with updates!
| brjosk chapter 6 . 6/27/2008
Ah. Cloud is such a crazy jerk. _ Also, I love your title too much for words. I looked it up even, but I like it better here.
| Sunshine chapter 6 . 6/27/2008
I am so glad you are back!
