| Winter Blake chapter 4 . 9/28/2010
Great job. Really well written.
| JUNG chapter 1 . 6/25/2008
Loved that film too. I have always wondered about the ending though. I have the double disk edition must check out deleted scenes. Loved your piece.

are you still writing MOPI fics? I'd love to read more... well, I guess, you
got a beta by now, right? (sad sniff) Anyhow, I could use some more stories
about any KR-character... maybe, if you don't want to write MOPI anymore
(though you're really, really doing excellent there), you could write some
dark, angsty Constantine fics?
Well, whatever you do, I wish you the best! D.

One word. AWESOME!
| Poppit chapter 1 . 3/30/2007
Zomg, I so need a new account since I forgot my old details, but anyhoo, I love this. And this movie! It's like so incredibly awesome. River and Keanu work so well together! *Sque* River's awesomely awesome. Anyways, the fic. I adore this. It's so well done and everything and in character. :D

Wow, wow, wow... That was incredible. You nailed the characters so well, in so many beautiful ways. You have a real flare for this! I'm one of the most massive Idaho fans, and was a little apprehensive about reading any fan-fic about it, but you did a really good job of it. Just wondered if you knew, that originally, Gus was planning on extending the film? Like instead of leaving Mike on the highway, he was gonna show him waking up in a hostel, and then returning to the streets where he found his friends had gotten 'real' jobs in his absence. I liked the way you took it though, but I would have loved to see how you would write Scott and Mike embarking on their new lives, what they'd do, what scrapes they'd get themselves into...? If you ever continue this brilliant story, please let me know. I was really inspired by it, so thank you for taking the time to write it. Much love xx

Yes, please do write more MOPI stories. There is not enough out there and I would be an avid reader if you did!
| dreamer chapter 4 . 1/18/2007
wow great story! you should write a sequal!
| Yixie chapter 4 . 7/28/2006
This is great!
I loved MOPI, and you kept it's spirit true in this fic.
It felt like a natural extension of the movie.
Keanu Reeves was the most beautiful thing alive as well..

| scarstar chapter 4 . 1/10/2006
I'm sad this fanfic has come to an end, this is such an amazing piece and I love your writing. This story is beautiful and has been a really good read. I love the style of your writing without any dialogue here, it's something I have never seen before and I think it works well.
I also love the change in the face at the end, a smile for him :) Well done, be proud of this because it's great.
| DesertFlower303 chapter 4 . 1/8/2006
Hey! That was pretty damn good! Great characterisation for both of them , great surreal style of writing. I loved it! Very well done! I loved the film. Is's totally screwed up, but the plot is just hillarious and unique and it's just so weird and I think you captured that really well. Keep it up!

I had to wait until after you saw Brokeback until I reviewed because I knew I'd have to rant on and on about how you were going to love it and the little things to look out for and all my theories about the characters, yada, yada, yada. Now, of course, you've seen it yourself and I can focus on what I'm supposed to be doing: reviewing this lovely little piece of fanfiction.
Gorgeous, gorgeous stuff. This chapter made me actually tear up the first time I read it because they deserved this ending so much.
"For the first time, he felt like he was stronger than Scott."
That line just- gah. It made me realize just how much Mike followed Scott (and again I feel the need to draw connections to Jack and Ennis but I will resist!) even when they're going on what really is Mike's journey. It inspires in me a need to rent Idaho again and analyze it until the cows come home.
This chapter itself was beautifully crafted. There was something about your choice of words that made me want to lick my monitor.
It has been absolutely delightful reading and reviewing this story and I would love to read any other MOPI fics you write.
