WOW. This fic is, without a doubt, absolutely stunning. I am beyond impressed. I loved it. I'm not sure if I have the words within me to aptly describe just what made this fic shine, but I'll certainly try.
I love how you portrayed the character dynamics in this story. You probably didn't mean to do a character study but I just found your character portrayals so insightful. Personally, I've always found Tezuka very lifeless. It's not exactly that he lacks depth but it's so hard to pull out what makes him exactly HIM, you know? But I think you're onto something here.
Not going to lie, I was not expecting the twist at the end. Woah. So is Ryoma a ghost or a figment of Tezuka's imagination?
My favorite part is the scene at the end; it just ties this story altogether, you know? Because Tezuka tries to form relationships with others but the only thing he's able to do in the end is play tennis. And he's left alone once more.

That was great and awesome and awe-inspiring and beautiful. It was different from "Looking-Glass", and I think you are really original. :D I love your weaving of dead characters and live ones so that the reader can't tell the difference until the end. All the pieces work together really well.
Please write more :D 3

That...was fantastic. *is rendered speechless* When I found out Ryoma was dead, the kiss blew my mind (because of course THAT is the first thing I think of) and the apology after it made sense, and the "I would have wanted to play you for real, I think." and the lack of warmth in the hug and the...and the and the XD
In conclusion...See these pants I'm wearing? Me neither, 'cuz they were just blown across the room.

Oh my gosh.. This was amazing. I would say more, but I'm afraid I would just keysmash all over.

| Tuli-Susi chapter 1 . 4/5/2007
oh...god...wow...i SO was not expecting that...oh wow...speechledd with shock...wow...

| lotus head chapter 1 . 4/5/2007
Oho. Spooky. Nice. ...after I read 'Shiraishi' I swear I started freaking. Because whenever I find that in a fic, I know it has to be bad. AND I WAS RIGHT.
It was well written, of course! :D
| merissala chapter 1 . 4/5/2007
But I think I get it.
Nevertheless, I'm going to read it again.
Because...it's hard to grasp the concept of the ... hallucination... thing...
Aie, Cool story.
