Reviews for The Excessive Use of Alibis
Beloved Dawn chapter 1 . 6/5/2011
I read this over at Archive of our Own, and loved it there. I'm so glad it's here too! This is going in the favourites!

Poor Doumeki, being jealous of your own grandfather like that. What a position to be in.

Me approves of jealous Shizuka. *thumbs up*
Spiegel chapter 1 . 3/1/2009
I think what I like most about this is that it's a really good "it was all a misunderstanding" story. Usually those feel forced and obvious, but here Watanuki's actions and Doumeki's reactions flow naturally and the reader feels sorry for the sucky situation Doumeki finds himself in, until the satisfying conclusion is reached.

at the end...why would doumeki thinking of them as brothers loosen the tightness? wouldn't it tighten it?
Circus Fish chapter 1 . 9/1/2008
That is one hell of a good day for me- reading one exeptional and wonderfull story after the other.

Yours had me...sitting on the edge of my seat and wondering if I had, accidentaly of course xD, swallowed stones...or stars..or something else that is heavy and frightening, but interesting.

Is there any chance that one can persuade you to continue with this?

It ends really well, has an haunting, melodious echo...but I am a glutton for magnificent stories with greath ideas.

vyravyra chapter 1 . 9/10/2007

fenxian chapter 1 . 8/10/2007
I-it...it sort of made me sad...? It was beautifully written, but somehow, I feel sad. I don't know why. All through it, I had this small feeling that Doumeki was being left out. Yes, although it was seemingly his conscious decision to act as he did.

It's in the way you wrote it, I guess. Really. I love this.
KageKitsune XXX chapter 1 . 5/4/2007
I am really mixed on this story. I think it is a wonderful idea, and it is exceptionally well-written, as you lay out the issues as they would definitely come up. It is just weird being jealous of your grandfather and your...umm...'friend'? Particularly your grandfather back from the dead, ne? But you can't help the feelings you get, I guess. Great job!

Gr, even Haruka isn't allowed to get in the way of Dou/Wata!
