Hey! :D I really, REALLY enjoyed this!
A Whisper of The Heart is still my favourite Ghibili movie, and contrary to some other people's thoughts, I loved the slower kind of pacing you have going for it. I genuinely can believe your own interpretation being what would happen if the movie continued on after the credits, and it was clear that any research you may have done helped achieve this. All of the characters still felt true to themselves, the dialogue was great! And I particularly loved the inclusion of the making up of Shizuku and Sugimura (I thought you expressed it perfectly, the element of him just wanting to protect her and set her on a clear path was a great explanation for it all, in my opinion).
I tried not to comment on this piece, but I couldn't resist in the end.
You have a very evident writing talent, and the work you have done has fed the very hunger I've been left with for a long time - ever since the credits rolled upon first watching the movie.
Thank you so much for sharing your gems with the world! I know that I for one, love it, and that it has made my day stumbling upon this randomly. Keep up with the great work! You've got yourself another fan. :P

In my opinion the story is so beautiful and romantic as well..but I think it turned to be a bit boring and uninteresting..why don't you add this little part of my idea...Seiji's father came to city..to visit his only son..by any chance.. he is also an author of the best-book-seller in america(or anywhere he live)then.. Shizuku and Seiji's father had a little chit-chat.. and it gave Shizuku an idea...'why don't I visit Seiji at France in Summer break!'...i hope you can accept this little part with an open-minded...if you don't accept this.. you can always add another story by yourself :)

I loved it!

This is my favorite Studio Ghibli movie. Your story is going exactly how I pictured the rest of the movie to continue, if it did. I want to write a fan fiction too someday soon, but it must take an awfully long time, so I really admire your story. You should continue!

Good story so far.
1) The official spelling of Baron's last name is Von Gikkingen. It's spelled with a "G" in The Cat Returns anime and manga.
2) You might want to read AND watch The Cat Returns. It's a spin off from Whisper. Miss Aoi Hiiragi says it's a story written by Shizuku about one of Baron's adventures. He saves a human girl named Haru from a crazy Cat King and an unwanted marrage. In the end Haru gets a chrush on him. PS He dosen't seem to mind one bit! :) He dosen't even reject her.
Trust me, you really should check out The Cat Returns because it'll keep your story in sync with Hiiragi's work.

that was really adorable - whisper of the heart is my ultimate favorite ghibli movie. I would love to hear more of your stuff in the future n_n

It's a vague beginning. It doesn't give me any indication as to where you're going with this story, which makes me disinterested in reading further. And by the way, Whisper of the Heart is not a Miyazaki movie. The movie was made by Ghibli and Miyazaki did produce the movie, but he didn't direct it.
