Reviews for Pastoral Symphony in Blue Minor
holographic chapter 1 . 2/7/2019
i don't know how i never saved this fic before, but i read it for the very first time years ago. probably around 2008. it's basically been 11 years, and i still think about this fic every so often because it was genuinely so gorgeous to me then, that i've basically gotten to the point where i forget this *isn't* demyx's backstory. your writing left a serious impression on me, and this story has remained one i adore to this day.

rereading it, it's just as beautiful as i remember. the descriptions of fantasia are effortless, and yen sid's matter of fact description of it makes it feel *real*, like it's a place we all know - but not in a way that leaves me frustrated for more details. it feels familiar. myde being a part of fantasia, and music, feels natural, as does his progression into being yen sid's - friend? son? it doesn't really even matter what word you put on it, because their relationship is truly so wonderful.

thank you so much for writing this. this story's impact on me will always be there, and i'm never going to forget about it. thank you.

... This story has stunned me.

This story is amazing. And now we know why his nobodies are called the dancers...
Just brilliant.

This is a wonderful origin story for Demyx. I held my breath when Myde returned. Yen Sid made a mistake rejecting him. That line, "Are you... going to kill me, then?" was you jabbing a finger directly into my feels. Oh, Myde you perfect water sprite, you need a hug.

I kept applying this Yed Sid to the one in KH2. And how this could've happened with him never mentioning it to Sora.

The lines, "Anything that can dance can feel. Anything that likes music can love." really got me too. It was that philosophy that caused Myde to lose his heart. But it's also a beautiful sentiment. It suggests, rightly, that Demyx still has a soul. I know the broomsticks are a symbol for something, but I'm not sure what.

Anyway, I loved the ending.
LeonaWriter chapter 1 . 8/10/2014
That... that was BEAUTIFUL. It hurt when I saw Yen Sid calling the brooms things that don't feel, knowing what Myde would later become and how people would treat Nobodies. I loved the way the story wove everything together slowly, because at the end when he comes back it really HURTS. I don't really know what to say, but that I think this fits with Demyx's canon, whether this turned out to be AU or not.

Loving this, so very much. The first Demyx Somebody story I've ever read... heck! The first DEMYX story I read, and you put the standard so high I doubt I'd find better piece than this.
I must be honest, tho, there are some parts (mainly Fantasia related) that I don't understand. But it's good! There is certain joy in knowing what you can comprehend, after all. And questions make you think, and possibly re-read the story.
Wonderfully well done! I am glad to have found this.

This fic is a treasure.
Really, that's all I can say. Everyone was so beautifully in character and it was written so nicely. The Fantasia world was so creative and I can just see it all in my head..!
This is, without a doubt, one of the best origin stories I've read. It fits so well into canon that is be surprised if Demyx's backstory /wasn't/ something like this. I mean, it makes so much sense that he's be from a Fantasia world!
I am now officially accepting this story as my headcanon and I will continue to read it again and again.

This is now my head canon. Amazing. The most heart breaking part was when Myde returned a Nobody and acted (?) as if he still had a heart.
mi chapter 1 . 7/29/2011
This is incredible. I love the way you did the Fantasia world as well as Demyx's backstory. Spelling and grammar was also very good.
AsianTwinkiesFTW chapter 1 . 4/25/2011
This is the best "Demyx's past" fanfic I have ever read hands down. I won't even bother comparing it with anything because it outranks them all.

Bravo. BRA. VO. ;_;

You incorporated music, water, dance, AND the Heartless, not to mention FANTASIA which is one of my favorite Disney worlds.

I can't even describe the feelings of awe that I felt as I read this. A, 500%, simply sonderful. ;_;

Oh my lord. This is one of the best things I've ever read. I wish I could come up with a super long review saying exactly what I appreciated... The composers, Myde's freckles, the song of the universe... So good. Rock on, man.
Sora Tayuya chapter 1 . 1/31/2011
Wow. This was powerful stuff. Poor Myde...no wonder Yen Sid would not have liked Nobodies. I rather like this take on Demyx's past. It is really sad, what occured to Fantasia, Myde, and then, most of all, what occured to Yen Sid when he decided to not even try to help the poor boy.

Oh...Dem...
Poke-the-Jello chapter 1 . 1/7/2011
This has to be the best back story to any Organization 13 Character I've ever had the pleasure of reading. You seamlessly melded the many symphonic aspects and lore of Fantasia with the operations of the KH universe in such a way I'd swear it was canon, and Myde was a great character to read as Demyx's somebody. I always throw my head back in thanks (not necessarily untrue) whenever I read Someody!Demyx that isn't obnoxious, hyperactive, or a total pansy. I mean seriously, just cuz a guy prefers to avoid confrontation in lieu of diplomacy, he's suddenly a weakling! I'm glad you were able to see the may strong character trait in his few minutes of airtime, as short as they were ): . His origin was brilliantly done (you'd think music loving water nymph would be a more common backstory) and you kept the great Yen Sid in character throughout this whole thing! It was great exploring this master/ reluctant pupil relationship blossom in its own subtle way, though the ending, as we all expected, still left terrible pang in my chest when Myde was so cruely made aware of his new non existence...if that makes sense. That last line left me feeling the weight of Yen Sid's loss and loneliness...

And was that flamingo making some sort of sexual proposition? Gah maybe I'm just a sleazy pervert, but aside from it being a slave inference, I can't see it any other way. Long review short-loved it, can't wait to read more of your works and keep it up!
Aisha Kaltinera chapter 1 . 9/6/2010
Oh! This is just, just, heartbreaking! And amazingly beautiful. *sniffles* I'm nearly crying over it, I didn't even cry over Harry Potter 7, yet I'm holding back tears for this wonderful piece!

So, so beautiful. It's amazing how one person can take a character and create this haunting, fleshed out back story for them. You, my dear, have talent.
