| UnLike Us chapter 19 . 10/8/2016
This was a super enjoyable read. Throughout the story there was a sense of realism and suspense.
The terror of the remnants psychotic and unpredictable as well as horrifying predictable behaviour. The tension between them made for a very interesting and frustrating dynamic. The fallout with Jenova and Sephiroth’s uncertain standing in the whole matter seemed really realistic and was pulled off wonderfully. Finally the planets and Aerates subtle and illusory involvement in the whole matter added another level of mystery and mysticism.
I really love the way you wrote Yuffie. Though she comes of as clumsy and childish, her strength of character and battle experience really comes through when it counts. Her diedr situation would be enough to send anyone over the edge with anxiety and panic, but she manages to keep her wits about her. At the same time she is very much of her dangerous predicament and is perfectly capable of feeling fear and horror.
All the potentially sexualised situations that tend to be overly emphasised and a bit forced in this genre, like the confiscation of clothing and the kiss in the bathroom is gone about in a very smooth and mature fashion in your writing. This reflects very well on the characters. A maturity combined with the fickle nature of emotion impulse and logical reasoning.
Some like to overpower one side and render the other helpless in these sorts of situation, which is easily done. However I feel that you managed to find this delicate balance. Yuffie, though skilful in stealth, escape and precision fighting is still very much on a human level as well as perfectly acceptable levels of clumsiness. And Kadaj, inhumanly strong, fast and graceful is still prone to underestimation, inattentiveness and moments of weakness.
I rather like the other Avalanche members as well. Though their presence aren’t as prevalent in this story the relationships unexplained complicated and dedicated to each other as they are came through really well. Clouds unconscious dismissal of her at the same time as he shows warmth that he wouldn’t to a stranger. Cid’s distrustful concern when she called him and he was convinced that it was some sort of prank but he called her back to check anyway. Tiffs misguided looking out for her and the strange thing going on with Vincent.
Finally the ending. It was very sad as it was at the same time reconciliatory. Though the implication of mark it will leave on Yuffie still ways heavily in me even as I write this review. The threats and pain. The unwitting betrayal of his attempt murder. The passion, the unsaid, the forbidden but sacred feelings stirs within. The redemption at the end. But as you say, it may really be for the best. Peoples natures are not changed so readily. If he had lived, no doubt there would be many more tears and bruises. Blood and relationship strains on the people around them. Even though in stories new purpose may be found in the love for another, in reality it is not so simple and the shadow of the lost legacy may not have ever faded away completely.
This is really a superb pice of work and I thank you for sharing it with all of us as well as seeing it through to the end.

Ohmygosh! I loved this fanfic. Thank you so much for this! Everything was just perfect and just right. The ending fits like a puzzle piece. You kinda did what square couldn't and gave the remnants true characters and real emotions, from beginning to end.

I am having so many conflicting emotions right now ffffffffuck. This is my third time reading this and the feelings are still the same and it just gets to me everytime. One of the very few fanfics that could move me so. I can honestly say that this is one of my favorites. God, let me go cry myself to sleep now. Shit.
The tears streaming down my face should be a crime.
Lovely writing, lovely story, you are lovely.

| loveaustralia chapter 19 . 8/7/2011
As much as I wanted a happy endning to this, just like Aerith and Zack, sometimes it takes a tragic safrice to make the biggest difference. Brilliant story.

Great job making Reno endearing as well as still a Turk. Go Yuffie for growing more into her own. Kadaj is also finally free of his original purpose. His new purpose should be Yuffie, but that sort of doesn't work if she's dead. Gotta hope not.
