| Kohala chapter 38 . 2/9
I have just re-read all 38 chapters. It seems to have been a lifetime. I did not read fic about DGM from 2010... that is when I got married. (Work, marriage life and a child leave little room for the rest.) However it is hard to let go completely what we like, so I recently saw the latest release of DGM (oddio, I do not call it chapter ...) and suddenly I reminded of this fic.
You know, of all the stories I've read from back in 2007 on DGM yours is the only one that came back to my mind and I was happy and surprised to have found the chapters that I had not yet read and sad because your latest update in 2010.
I thought you were gone from the web, so I started looking for you. You know... like a little stalker XD and I'm happy to know that you are still active on AO3.
At first I did not believe you were the same person but I read on your profile that the first question that you get frequently is: "Will You Continue Bookman?"
I smiled! We love your fic. You should be very proud of it! I will wait quietly that you have the right inspiration to continue this fic (I hope Hoshino will be able to inspire you, and if not enough, know that you have many readers who wait patiently for a new chapter of this wonderful story).
A hug from Italy

It appears that you've decided to go on a permanent hiatus? But, with the wishes of it not being so and that you'll come back...eventually hahaa I would like to show my support on your work. All is well written with a realistic-canon feel that incorporates all of Lavis given history and explainable characteristics. I am intrigued and curious as to what his full past pertains for you have hinted quite a lot. And I patiently await for the chances of an update and many more afterwards. The additional screen time of sir william as you have shared is indeed favored highly haha. Until next time, with all the best wishes for you

" Next chapter, he peaces out to go to Rome, which will be a lot of blah, blah, blah once he meets the Illuminati and whatnot, but Lavi will show up (and there will be much angst?) so don't write him off completely! Also, Sagira/Akila was waaaaay too much fun. She'll be back, as will a certain Royal Marine twit by the name of Sir William, because he's too lulzy NOT to get some more screen time (page time? chapter time? whatever!) All kinds of good stuff coming up soon! I'll do my best to update again by the end of this week (we'll see) because you guys had to wait so long. Sound good? Let me know what you think about anything. Thoughts, crit, undiluted praise/worship are always appreciated."
Did author Chan die or just give up with fanfiction? Get married or something? I know a lot can happen in five years but it would be amazing if some how you could update this so that you know THERE IS
CONCLUSION (not angry) and plus hoshino is working on dgm

I LOVE WRITTING IN BOOKMAN size 14 with DGM fanfiction because WHY NOT GEEK OUT when it comes to D GRAY MAN.

Okay so yeah I'm commenting yet again.
What would be really cool is if you could provide a list of information on each character that has appeared in this story chronologically with basic thing. I mean it would be really awesome if that happened.
Like manas and gansea twins, Brits, red haired hates elric bros and call them horrible cheaters who in rightfully and unfairly claimed the philosopher stone. Signature is chickens. Nicknamed tweedledee and tweedledum by bookman. They are scientists dappling with alchemy and creating timelord science.
And shorter entry's for non main ish characters.
And maybe descriptions of appearance.
I've been really wanting to make fanart of this but a I don't have skills with color and can't make use of digital art only traditional and lack a lot of supplies. And two being half the people I want to hardly have descriptions and I can't really figure out age and stuff.
And also I think I'm going to definetly use this back story as my office lavi back story with minor adjustments to accommodate other information like him not being lavi until joining the order... Lavi being his 49th alias. And having bookman being 100 ish since that's what I believe was meant amd the clan being around since the flood.

I'm pondering if the innocence that is in the temple will be lavis (awesome for the blessed (by cross) demon (as so called by mother) child to get the innocence akin to a god of some sort though me and my friend believe that each innocence is a 'angel' like being. Plus if called a god if should be a sentient being like appocryphos which would call for a more highly evolved crystal type or parasitic type innocence and I do not believe that it would willingly revert back to a deevloved state. Though the gem could be for timothy... Because tsukikami is sentient ish.
Also when this takes place is it before alma and Yu are successes and Allen meets mana?
And do you believe that Allen was raped as a Chile cause he does have some things working towards that... Like cojimo/kojimo/cojimov/Cosmo/cosmov (clown in reverse:LFoS that beats red/Allen) and/or debt collectors.
And YEEGAR! And Marie then went to almost die on the battle field after being picked up by yeegar and transfered to tiedoll...?

Oh yeah LAVIS BEAUTIFUL HAIIIRRRRRRRRRRRRR
and I broke 800! 0w0 (having to back track to post)

One day however, Amon, the God of Wind and deity of Trickery, wanted pull one ver on Thoth.
I believe that it should be pull one over on Thoth. (being that this was posted sometime before my dad died (so about five years ago since he died on fathers day 2010 which is when the last update is if my memory is correct) I would be appalled if no one has brought this error to your attention previously but in any case I am mentioning it in the case that some how no one has.)
Anyways I'm so happy that I have only four more chapters till I'm caught up and I'm pondering if this actually did end because even though you say you have 20-30 more chapter to write since it supposedly should end around chapter fifty and it ends with a chapter 38 instead I would be highly disappointed if this (fan)fiction were to have ended prematurely with nothing having been wrapped up.
I am sorry if anything is being rambled because it is late at night and this is the second night in a row that I have stayed up late for the sole purpose of reading this fanfiction.
I found that this death surprised me greatly only for the fact he was raped (and blood omg scarred for life) burned and murdered and bookman found him in a ditch wrapped in a mat and his eyes were blank and open. I felt my heart go out to when one and two were describing the past and am annoyed at rohan for no(?) reason.
I can't wait to see William appear again (and I died laughing at that it was William and Sebastian michellies) cross dressing lavi was great. I liked the name Dion but dido sounded greatly like dildo and therefore was not to my liking.
I love all of the spells that you have included and the Chinese curse words. I love manas and gansea and how they hate certain FMA characters. I love the harry potter references except that sheila scares the crap out of me. I cannot however recall what happened to the rabbit lavi saved back when all the apprentices were accounted for.
I facepalmed at cross fucking the stranger woman and was surprised by maria trying to choke cross and cross then shoving judgment down her throat. The way that bookman is sneaking around order reminds me of kh 358/2 days organization seeking around.
I hated that they thought that bookman/Sebastian would do anything untoward to dildo I mean dido... In the corset too tight scene..
I was flipping out at the part where that dude (name escaping me) the archive master who then tried to kill bookman and rape lavi had bookman see all the dead and dying children along with violated lavi... But technically lavi has been violated before... So if he had gotten violated yet again would two come out and lavi regain those memories?
Also is lavi like engaged to William?
Cross is so fucking amazing (I'm so sad he is 'dead') and HE COULD BE THE 'INCUBUS' THAT SLEPT WITH LAVIS WHORE MOTHER.
and there's other things I was going to say like BOOKMAM AND LAVI HAVE TIMELORD TECHNOLOGY!
And cross has a thing with chickens and alchemy so is he the one who manas and gansea (whom I love btw) were crossing paths with?
And um there's a lot more... But I can't think since its past midnight and I can't look at my notes.
Thank you so much for being awesome and creating this story. And maria and cross are so canon. So canon.

I guess this has been discontinued, but I really really like this story. :)
You are probably one of the very few people that have even attempted to give Lavi a good backstory...
Just wanted to say. I've really enjoyed reading this...
| Lavi-EndlessHope chapter 38 . 7/15/2014
I love this story! (I can't even think of what my favorite part was.. maybe all of it!) I really hope it might be continued someday! I love you writing, your style is amazing!
| Reader chapter 38 . 7/2/2014
Cliffhanger dun duh dun. I'm wondering where this will play out. Also that last bit with book man at the end was really interesting.
This is one of the best fics I've read and I hope that it will be continued, very well done and written too :D
| HolleyS chapter 38 . 3/13/2014
Is there any chance you'll continue this?
I really like reading about Lavi's training to become a bookman.
| Fortune Maiden chapter 36 . 1/31/2014
This is one of those stories that deserved a re-read. It's so good! I especially like the early chapters with a look into the clan. It was really great world building! (And the twins are awesome! Best character award!)
Just curious, are you ever going to continue this? I would love to read the return of Sir William!
