Reviews for How Does Your Garden Grow?

wow, this is a truly excellent introspective about what it takes to become a SeeD, both serious with just enough sprinkling of humor. It starts well, it continues strong and it ends perfectly. Well done _

I like this, very much. It's a refreshing "not a hero" perspective, which avoids the entire realm of "Mary Sue." Nicely written, excellent word choice, and the scene of the cadet on the ground cursing at Irvine is pretty much totally awesome.

XD Hooray for making out with the SeeD commander!

I love your writing - and this is such a good post game fic (with Squall/Zell my FF8 OTP *squee*!)

Just one small nitpic - I think that you were thinking about SODIUM not magnesium as exploding when hitting water. (Sodium explodes in water, magnesium burns brightly/hotly at relativly low temperatures)

Very, very nice. I love exploring Garden's moral ambiguities both in my own work and in other people's. You've encapsulated it nicely. Bravo.

Tiny typo in the third-to-last paragraph. "Sixth" should be "six."

Very nice piece. The slash seems a little random, but not out of place, somehow. Nice work.

'Rambling first person' is the most fun to write, and it's usually quite fun to read as well. I like how the main character is not one of the FFVI cast, but is a new character viewing the cast from a fresh perspective.

It also happens to be very well written, brings across character well (Zell especially) and the ending paragraphs of her as a SeeD really puts the whole 'SeeD' idea into perspective. SeeDs are mercenaries, but few stories take advantage of or use that fact. I'd say you're a good writer, but judging by the skill level, you probably already know that. _

Rambly and first-person it is, and I like it. It's a very candid presentation of what it might be like to be a SeeD. (And ha, magnesium in the toilets. I wish someone had done that when I was at college.)
