Mmhmm, the thighs do it for me too. Definitely the thighs Brilliant collection so far, I can't even pick a favourite they're all so good (though I think the mention of the imfamous thighs might have cinched it for me...maybe)

Please hurry with the next, I really am loving this.
KamquatBanana chapter 10 . 2/4/2007
Oh my. I love the last three lines - describes it all so perfectly and gorgeously and makes me melt into a little fangirl puddle.
bandwitch chapter 10 . 10/28/2006
Wow, this is awesome. X3 I love everything about it. Your writing is great, the plots are amazing and unique, and the characterization is perfect. Great work.
Carina Frost chapter 10 . 5/30/2006
Wow, this is great! I can't believe I didn't find this earlier. You're style of writing is awesome. Keep it up.
p chapter 10 . 5/14/2006
i let out an unintentional squeal again, this is too bloody brilliant, it is. Someone Of Great Authority ought to chain you to a computer in a basement until you keep writing, methinks. *sits on the edge of a chair waiting for the next installment*
Maedhros chapter 10 . 5/8/2006
Yup, it's THE thighs! It's alrigt Matt, they simply can't be ignored, we all feel the same XD

I thoroughly enjoyed the theme of mixing two polar extremes and blurring between the borders (ie. black and white; love and indifference). It's in harmony with the series which is based heavily on the grey (the ideal of "justice" for example) and as Matt narrates, "sometimes it was hard to tell whether they were all heading towards the same ultimate goal or being shoved into opposite corners of a bloody room"; but we are all glad for one thing that remains constant through it all: Mello's very distracting legs.
Fancy chapter 9 . 5/2/2006
I don't have any really coherent criticisms... These are all just really, solidly good. The little insights into moments like this are really needed in DN fanfiction, since they're so absent in the manga itself. And yours fit. I can't remember now and I'm too lazy to check-I might have reviewed this before, and if so, sorry for the redundancy. But I really like number 5. And I also really like this last one. I REALLY like this last one, because the implications of telling Near are so interesting. And the idea of Near having a childhood crush is just great (if a little sad!).
Maedhros chapter 9 . 5/2/2006
This is a very sweet piece you wrote, it feels like a school day, I could imagined it with its wooden tables and chairs all lined in straight rows, students chatting aout. Mello's popular with the ladies? lol, I think so too but how would Matt react? I found it hilarious how Near described Marella as "fourteen years old and already ruined", it's very very Near like, but this conclusion of his is just something out of this world, lol.

Thank you for another inspiration piece!
Krista chapter 6 . 4/5/2006
Your work is amazing! Yay! There's never enough MattxMello floating around...
Acey Dearest chapter 6 . 4/4/2006
These are really all very good! In-character, detailed... just really awesome all around. ) I especially love the dialogue- it just seems so them.



(ruriruri from death_eyes finally reviewing, took me long enough, huh?)
Maedhros chapter 6 . 3/20/2006
Haha, I seem to have developed a love for quoting for this wonderful story of yours, it simply can't be helped! Two image struck me the hardest and deepest were these two:

"With the sleeve of his shirt he bitterly wiped the hot wetness (and the salty crumbs) off his cheeks, bit down on his lip and fell against the mattress, eyes shut tight."

"...until the figure stood posed with a soccer ball, staring down at him silently..."

They really gives the atmosphere of their orphanage days, the scent of their childhood all over the place D

They also act like their age too: Mello threatening never to speak to Matt again, Matt's reference to Fury I (does this game exist? if not, awesome name, it's straightforward and fun), Paulie weaseling Mello's secret from Matt -that makes me curious about this secret, but at the same time I still felt the focus was on the second change Mello had given Matt rather than the secret that started the whole issue.

Finally, I especially love the ending with "sun and sweat and small, breathless smiles", that really was a cherry on top. Light and carefree, a perfect mood complimenting the innocience of childhood.
kuregu chapter 6 . 3/20/2006
this chapter was so cute!
Moontyger chapter 6 . 3/20/2006
I love these! They are very atmospheric and in character. There really needs to be more Mello/Matt fics out there.

I am looking forward to the rest!
Lucca chapter 6 . 3/20/2006
I'm sad that the manga has so little scenes of Matt now...XD

I really like the way you approach each chapter as well, it kind of gives a deeper meaning to the feelings passing between the two.

I shall be waiting for more~
Maedhros chapter 5 . 3/17/2006
D With your bull's eyes characterization of Matt and Mello I'm not surprise you got sources to fuel your fandom XD Spread the M/M! *high 5*

Great job on another great chapter! My favourite line was "The stare he received in return was not icy - but sharp, nonetheless. Though Mello hissed his reply through gritted jaws, every word was decisive." I felt this is very descriptive and provides a sense of finality to what Mello is saying. As for Matt's mention of "convenience", it leaves room for interpretations, but me being a fan reader jumped to thinking in terms of M/M relationship and then there's the title 'In Denial'...
