| The Witch chapter 1 . 2/8
I'm not good I'm not nice I'm just RIGHT. I love your title! (And the story attached to it)
| Calciferol chapter 4 . 2/8
I'm wary of hmc fics in general, but I'm quite fond of yours! Thank you!
| Kixxar chapter 4 . 7/20/2013
I effing loved this chapter... I couldn't stop laughing! xD
It's too bad this hasn't been updated, this is charming and hilarious!
| The Mouse Maestro chapter 4 . 5/29/2013
Beautiful story xD
The characters are acting as they should, and makes me feel very nostalgic about both the book and movie. Speaking of the two, I like how you were able to mend the two together fluently :)
I feel like reading this over and over again; it's just that wonderful xD Great job :)
| Aki no Ryu chapter 3 . 4/11/2013
Another lovely chapter. I love your version of Howl and Sophie! Howl's so sweet and solicitous of his wife's feelings. Sophie's always willing to step out of her comfort zone for a worthy cause. What a lovely couple.
| Aki no Ryu chapter 2 . 4/11/2013
Double like! You showed the conflicting cultures, for lack of a better word, very well. I look forward to the day when Sophie can break out of her shell and give as good as she gets when it comes to her romantic relationship with her husband. I love the scene where Sophie starts crying from sheer happiness.
| Aki no Ryu chapter 1 . 4/11/2013
This is so good! I love how they're both desperate to please the other. I also love what Calcifer did. I really liked Howl being a bit more mature than usual and Sophie not being argumentative.

hi, i'm not sure if you still read reviews for this story or not, and i don't see how i can possibly praise you for this fanfic any more than you already have been...but i do want to say this is one of the best i've read..and i've read a few. but you sincerely did a fantastic job with the story line and the characters...especially how you've kept them in character..between the book and the movie...so great job..hope you still planning on updating..but even if you don't i can say i'm glad i found this :) thx
| Kingyo chapter 4 . 10/17/2010
Very nice. I like your writing style.
| Aran'sApprentice-Meahow chapter 1 . 8/27/2010
I was just about to start work on my own HMC fic, having just re-read the book & watched the movie, and then i read this one, and i might just want to back away because you've said it better, and more succinctly, than i think i could.
(Don't worry, this won't stop me. i'll just be cowed for a while and come up with a few better ideas and proceed.)
Anyway, this is a great fic, and i might just have to lollygag down to LJ to read part two. I was worried at the beginning because it was SO TERRIFYINGLY DEPRESSING and yet so much in character for Howl that i couldn't make it un-depressing, but you've gone and made it alright. The trembling hands and then the laughter are perfect details, and perfectly in character. I'm not exactly sure whether Sophie would be that obsessed with propriety, but it's an excellent plot point and in-character-ness is always subjective.
The ending is gorgeous, by the way, as far as writing style goes. Clever and quirky. It made me laugh.
Fave quotes: "her distinctively Sophie-brand combination of ruthless efficiency and startling innocence."
-and of course-
" "I love you," Howl said fervently, which had very little to do with the topic at hand but was resoundingly true nevertheless."
Guess i'll have to read the rest of the chapters.

Awwwww, Howl and Sophie are so cute. Everyone (Well, mainly Sophie and Howl, haha) is in character and your writing is phenomenal. I love the themes-actually, scratch that. I love everything. And I love your long chapters.
I do feel terribly bad for Howl though. War...the cost always outweighs the benefits (are there any?) so, really. DX Anyways, I love how your wrote Howl and Sophie's relationship. It's fitting for their personalities and is fairly realistic.
Anyways, love your fic, and do hope that you continue it and update soon. :D

This is really good - I do hope you continue it. :3
| Bird of Hope chapter 1 . 3/3/2009
Oh! I thought to title sounded very familiar, by a bizard coincidence i'm playing the witch from 'Into the Woods' in my school play, i love that musical- shame Miss Borsdan decided to cut all the songs really- sorry that's not relevant but i'm very angry about it.
That was a weird mix, it was ahrd to be fully prepared for it, i knwo the book so very well... you started off saying that thing about the 'happily ever after' so i had that ncie clear picture of book-Howl in my and then suddenly you talked about re-building the castle and i think 'Wow! What happened to the castle?' and then not long after, 'ah, movie refference.' it was kind of dizzying.
Other than that though it was pretty well written, you had me completely involved with it throughout pretty much lathough some of the dialoulgue was a bit weak, try to avoid ever having to say 'huh' because to be honest i've never actually heard anywone make that noice although i've heard plenty of peeople say 'hmm?'
But the plot seemed even stronger than it was somehow- in a good way.
Generally i liked it is what i should have said but that's my summary anyway.
