| Fenris Jin chapter 1 . 2/14
It was sad for the depressing undertones. But the full circle was indeed beautiful. :)

your story reminded me of the above song (sorry, it's in japanese- if you google the following: 生きとし生ける物へ lyrics and click the blue 'translate this' on the first link, you can read the lyrics in english) basically it speaks of the fact that he's so different and comes to the conclusion he's no longer human.
this was touching and heartbreaking. i don't know what's worse: abuse or neglect. at least with abuse, you have bruises and scars to prove it. reminds me of my mum's story when she was a child, abused by an alcoholic father and after his suicide she spent seven years in the 1920's foster system until she escaped by marrying at sixteen. how horrible people can be to the most vulnerable among us.
this was captivating as well as profound and wrenching.

Wow. This was touching. I actually read this story a while back, before I had an account.
This fic is what also made me excited to finally watch The Pianist!
| Encuentrame chapter 8 . 4/20/2007
It was a good story. Kind of too sad for me but overall I liked it. Nice job.

This fanfic is anything but cliched. It's so original, and I've never read a writing style like it. I loved it all
| piwqefjk chapter 8 . 1/21/2007
Great story. I love the ending, and the gradual progression that happens throughout it xD
| guardian forever chapter 8 . 1/19/2007
hey, just finished reading this piece of yours and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. It's a little unsual in the writing style but it was pretty refreshing considering some of the stories being written in the ruroken universe. It was good to see K&K being written as average, normal(well... whats normal... maybe i should say not stereotyped) people. And I have to admit Im a bit of a sucker for two broken people healing each other :)
thanks for the good read!

I have homework I need to be doing as I ponder the reason for my watering eyes. I suspect either tiredness or empathy for the story. Possibly both. In any matter, thank you for taking the time to write this. _
P.S. As per the last chapter, it hadn't occured to me that there would be a callus from the way I happen to hold my pencil. Admittedly, I should have realized it after writing so many times to the point of making my knuckle sore. I imagine this would prove me very dense, indeed. Alors... _~

My opinion: Yes. Don't fret. Yes. Yes. Of course. Well, it's not 'simple'... fanfiction. We know it's a fanfic, but I believe I know know what you meant while writing it that way. Update soon!_~\/
