| Queen Buruma Hawk chapter 10 . 9/19/2013
At first, for a Roy/Riza fic, I was having too much Havoc and not enough Roy and Riza. Then still, with every chapter, it became more and more interesting and I was hooked into the whole thing, even if there hadn't been many scenes with them together as I had been expecting. Roy's plan, I saw it coming from the beginning, but the way it all turned out was so both heart-breaking and beautiful that I could only keep reading in awe. I cried, I felt deeply for this two and sincerely, this could fit perfectly as the end of the first FMA series. It keeps that sad and longing sensation that the anime had. And the statue in their honour, I know that image, they even sell it as a PVC figure too. I'll never look at it the same way again. Congratulations on your amazing work.

Despite the fact that this was extremely difficult to read (I'm sure you've gotten many comments about people sobbing over this story), this was truly an exquisite piece of work. I think you did all of the characters great justice (especially Havoc) and the tone of the story fits perfectly with the original FMA anime.
Chapter eight in particular was especially well done. I am endlessly impressed with how you conveyed both the tragedy in the fact that Roy and Riza were about to die to save the world, and the utter joy they felt while doing it. I'm honestly blown away.
You're a very impressive writer and I hope you continue writing, whether it's fanfiction or original work.

Job well done.
I cried, and no story has ever made me cry. Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

This was an amazing story... It killed me in a number of was, but there's no doubt the piece is beautiful. Thank you for writing!

I came expecting sweet little story to heal myself from all wonderful angst I've read and boy, you blew my remnants to bits.
Red alert went all over my head as early as chapter 3, and I had guessed he was going to do self-sacrifice, but I kept hoping there would be some semblance of hope...
But I'm glad he had his peace along with her.
Never watch the 2003 anime, so it's interesting to know how that one wrap the story up.
I love the tone of this story. I love your characterization.
It's a bit unfair, though, that Roy gave even his new acquaintances (Laura & Lance) gifts but gave no promotions to Breda, Fuery, and Falman.
That memorial statue. I'm speechless. This was done in 2007, yet that very description was the picture at the end of FMA's last volume, done in 2010. And I could never see it the same way again.
I'm unsure what else to say, my mind still stunned so...
I'm heading to your other fics.

So... omg my heart is still so broken ó.Ò. But I still wanna analyze this. Cause I need to tell you and to tell myself why this is sooooo intense... :P
This story is about... so so special, unique, heart wrenching, lovely, amazing, cool characters. In the first place. And that's why you're getting so close to everyone, cause you just love them sooo much.
And what's more - you can put yourself totally into their position. This is because of your writing style, Ms/Mr author :)! You make the readers love everyone and understand everyone and feel whatever they are feeling. Or at least for me it was like that. I was sharing everything with them, with my whole heart, cause you made me do so, cause I could understand it and relate to it soooo perfectly! I was feeling for them with every single molecule of my soul. (I mean... probably the soul doesn't consist of molecules though... but you know what I mean, right ;)...?)
And so I really really got involved in this. No distance left between my heart and this fic :P. And that's why this knocked me off my feet so bad.
Sounds a little too dramatic, but this story did not only break my heart, it broke my heart so many times that after all it felt like there was no heart left, but only a pile of shards, and each shard killing me in a different way.
There's one shard for Winry and Roy and everything that's in between them. Cause it was like... the fact that she had really forgiven him after all was more than he could take. The whole situation was way more painful for him than for her.
The next shard is for Roy and Riza at the end of this party.
There's another shard for Havoc, when he discovered Roy's plan. OMG and when all these memories came back to his mind, of everything he and Roy had gone through together. And when he realized that there was just no other way.
There's one more shard for this moment when Havoc looked back, seeing Roy down there in the middle of that circle, waving him goodbye. This picture will stay in my mind forever.
And then there are 761284319 further shards for chapter 8. "... my Riza." OMG.
There's a song called "Lost and Found"... I still got no words, but at least I've found that song: w w w. youtube. de/ watch?v LINKTcBOFgY (copypaste, remove blanks, press enter)
So I gotta go now, find a new heart And afterwards, I will go into the old ruined sanctuary and find an empty place on the ground between the flowers lying before the stairwell. That's where I will leave the shards of what had once been my FMA heart.

Alright then. I have to admit, I didn't get a lot of sleep last night either. I woke up this morning with suuuuuch a headache, seriously feeling like I'm having a hangover and for a second I was thinking about not going to work today.
But c'mon, sleep is totally overrated these days anyway :P, certain persons are saving the world without getting ANY sleep at all in the night before... and I'm definitely NOT staying at home because of a FIC. No way.
So... two painkillers and two coffees later, here I am, in my office. Extreme stories require extreme measures, and so... yupp, I've just read the 8th chapter right here, in the office. Cause now I HAVE TO look unremarkebale and as if I'm reading usual business e-mails or an invoice or stuff like that.
Pheeeew. That totally saved me. From "really reading" chapter 8 or whatever. Maybe eventually possibly I'm gonna read it once again at home, in my livingroom. If I got the heart to do so. :P
I swear such a thing has never ever happened to me before. Being that much affected by a fic I mean. Being AFRAID of reading the next paragraphs. Making up weird measures to be able to do so. Wow.
So... this wasn't actually a review, my real review is yet to come... one day... when I got over this. :P
| sub.C chapter 7 . 5/1/2013
I can't... I just can't... I got no words. Just take my heart right now and look at it and feel with it. Whatever I could write now, it can't even get somewhere close to what this feels like. :..Ø
| sub.C chapter 6 . 4/29/2013
OOOOOOMGOMGOMG! Oh dear that was just... everything one can feel combined in one chapter... omg you got me laughing and crying and everything in between!
I was sitting here on my couch with a glass of red wine, listening to music and really really feeling like I was a guest at that party as well, it was so perfect :).
And then, when Roy and Riza were dancing with each other, in that very moment the radio played this "Where do broken hearts go" song from the 80ies, you know that one? :...( OMG my heart, wow, ouch, damn...
| sub.C chapter 5 . 4/29/2013
Oh wow, mind-blowing chapter, soooo much going on, I don't even know where to begin, information overload, but soooo well written :)!
I love everyone so much for being the way they are, everyone's just so cool... omg and Laura's like Ed :)... and everything that's going on between Roy and Riza... and omg, you know what, Laura and Lance - damn they're a little like... um... me and my boyfriend I have to admit (yeah I knew that even before reading this fic, but it's good to be reminded of... whatever ;). He's not the one to "give me a good slap" for rolling over him either :P.)... GAAAH and UNCLE ROY *lol* - yeah that's the right name for him, I totally agree! :D
I just love this fic! :o))
| sub.C chapter 4 . 4/29/2013
Wow... the way you can chatacterize people and bring across their thoughts and emotions is amazing! :)
And Sciezka rulez! :)
| sub.C chapter 2 . 4/28/2013
OMG... just finished reading chapter two and I already know this is gonna be soooo... wow :)... and I already read too many reviews in advance and I know myself, so I already know... this fic will make my heart explode ó.Ô! Alright then. Whatever. I'll go for it. *takes a deep breath*
The way you're describing Roy in this chapter... the way he feels and acts... e.g. when he's reading the menu... omg he loves food like I do :) :D... GAH I just love him so much with every sentence, cause the way you describe him is just soooo cool! :)
So, you see, I already start getting emotional before all that "serious stuff" begins. Damn. This is gonna be real tough then. :-S

This is a beautiful story. I have to admit that I cried - and am still crying right now. You have an exquisite talent for writing. Thanks for writing and posting this story.
| Guest chapter 10 . 7/11/2012
Wow. This story was painful, uplifting, humorous, and all the good things that can be found with a well written fic. Well done!
