|Reviews for The Violet Room|
| Guest chapter 16 . 7/29
Omg. I'm literally sobbing. It is 2023 and I finally finish this. It was so good. I read this when it first came out and had it in my bookmarks for YEARS. I decided this year it was time to finish it. It feels like a whole chapter of my life has ended. The characters, relationships, and growth were beautifully written. I sobbed with the last conversation with Yuffie and Mydes mom, even when he realized everyone would be okay. Ugh it was just so good and I'm glad to say I finally finished it. Can't believe it took this long .

I know it's been forever. I'd started this fic in 2008 and the last email notif I had was about chapter 12 in 2013. But today, in a new place in my life, as an adult who's been far removed and blossomed quite far from the 2007 me that was forever attached to this franchise, something compelled me to return to see what I'd missed. And the memories crept back as I flipped through, and as I find myself reaching the end, there's a deep nostalgia that comes with concluding the Violet Room. Thank you for such an impeccable journey and for bringing me a bit of youthful joy I haven't thought to reach for in a long while. I haven't been on FFnet in years, but to return to finish your fic and to read its wonderful conclusion honestly just made my entire week. I hope life is treating you better now. Thank you for being so wonderful and for sharing such a fun tale with us all. Take care. Stay safe.

Hmm... I'm not usually one to review (due to my lack of experience), but this is an interesting take on Kingdom Hearts as a story, and... well, Ienzo really feels like Ienzo here, at least. A lot of these stories go OOC.
And might I ask where to get beta-readers? I'm active on ao3, and the majority of my non-oneshots just sink, a second opinion might help that.

I don't know if you'll read this because I'm pretty sure you no longer post here but I wanted to tell you that I discovered this fic in 2019 and once I was done reading it, it made me want to write some of my old projects again. I now have 100 pages first draft (plus a few side projects) and you have no idea how glad I am to have found your fic.
So. Thank you for that. )

At least once
I can't exist forever
But I'll try to exist
For as long as I can
Before the past catches up
And swallows up the present
I'll make myself a line
Not just a point

Before you read this, know that this story is my favorite KH fanfiction ever.
I blame you for me going on a rampage that started with me wanting to synthesize a Midnight Anklet in kh2 and ended with me going on an epic time wasting journey to get the Ultima keyblade (which, in the end, I did get). But it's fine, because now I understand the importance of synthesizing, and have save the queen and a level 8 moogle, and because of all the running around and battling that was involved in the quest, I fully completed Disney Castle, and I'm now level 62, so maybe I can defeat Sephiroth soon.
All in all, thank you so so so much for writing this. It was the first KH fanfiction I read, and I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to kh fanfics in general. This is either my third or fourth favorite fanfiction ever, including crossovers, which means a lot, because I've read more than a few. This is awesome, and the only reason this isn't my favorite overall is because the few that I liked more were about series I liked more. The first time I read this, I read all 16 chapters in one day, which made me stay up way too late. Anyway, thank you and continue writing!

ok but i really really love how there are ff7 characters in this? it's like one of the main reasons im reading this
| Guest chapter 9 . 3/28/2018
I really hope this wasn't the biggest ff7 spoiler I've ever seen, because while I skipped half of it, I also read half of it. I haven't played enough of the game to know. I did cry a little bit when cloud said Sephiroth sleeps here too. I hope this doesn't get too depressing, because it's already depressing
| Guest chapter 1 . 3/28/2018
I love this already

Whew. It's like a giant entourage of KH, FF, and Disney characters came out for one last hurrah. That you could fit so many characters in must've required really intensive work.
That, along with the whole execution of the Plan was really nostalgic and chaotically entertaining ("sounds like fun" ahahaha). It was like that Plan for Stealing the Akashic Record all over again, except the stakes became so much higher. And with everyone joining the fight, then Zack, Cloud, Reno, and Rude giving chase..."does no one in this hospital have even an ounce of self preservation" lmao. Just. Everyone is so precious. Totes adorbs.
Aerith's goodbye. Ienzo's powers returning to him over the course of the battle. Myde's mom teasing and giving her blessing. That entire epilogue; beginning and ending like book ends, coming full circle, but things truly are different now, especially where it matters most-in their hearts.
Smiled and chuckled lots, replete with giddy mental cheering. That ending was perfect, hit all the right notes and stopped at the most fitting place. Definitely lives up to the fic entire and leaves readers feeling a deep-seated sort of contentment (along with, of course, the reluctance born from finishing a particularly good book one is sad to see end).
Nine years. The Violet Room was a wonderful experience, both entertaining and profound. You have a seemingly intuitive grasp of the language, refined to a diamond-polish after supreme dedication, hard work, and practice. A vivid imagination in order to craft such a creative plot, keen intelligence to maintain logical consistency and portray intelligent characters...TVR's success lies in all this and more, but most importantly, it resonates with readers because you breathe true life into your characters, give them emotions, motivations, /heart/ to propel them into action, and that sense of authenticity would not be there, I think, if you did not have the empathy needed to understand the human psyche so well.
Truly impressive. You deserve all the praise found in these reviews and more. Thank you for persevering and seeing TVR to its conclusion. It's been over a year since you finished writing TVR, but I hope things are looking up. Life ain't really reasonable or fair, but you've got incredible talent and amazing work ethic covered in spades. Wish you the best!
