|Reviews for A Secret Between Them And All Who Would Behold It|
| young dawn chapter 1 . 6/4
I absolutely adore this. Not only is it a great take on a range of characters' feelings towards Ichigo and Rukia, but you also convey these characters in their own light. I'm glad to see Chad in here. He's one of my favourites, though he rarely gets much attention. It makes sense for Karin to be suspicious about Rukia, what with her own spiritual awareness. Kon, insufferable though he may be at times, truly does care for Rukia (and Ichigo!), and the way you relayed it was very sweet. Renji's was also particularly touching, especially considering his pretty obvious feelings for Rukia. And you gotta love the serious and playful sides of Isshin's personality meshing so well. I love how they all just individually decide to keep this secret because of how they care for these two. Well done.

I absolutely adore this. The hopping from one focus to another, but still all on the same subject, I love it. Your writing it very easy to read, nice and fluid. I sorta wish there were other characters taking an outside perspective, but for its length I can't complain at all. I really enjoyed reading.

The scenes are all great, but Kon in particular is positively adorable. I really like that you referred to everyone else in the perspective of the character at the time, because I've seen many people not do that in the most recent stories I've read and it's just good storytelling manners.
There's a quality that writing it (almost) without any dialogue lends to this story, though I'm not sure what it is... Intimacy, I guess? Because it's all inside the characters' heads, except for a couple brief glimpses of the outside world as Karin or Renji says something. It's much more personal.

That one hella secret to keep. It's a relief these are the only people that is aware, though I doubt Ishida wouldn't notice.
Chad- a very good friend.
Karin- I expected she doesnt like Rukia, but she cant do anything about it. She's gonna come around eventually.
Kon- given his circumstance during the 3rd movie, he really treasures Rukia more than her just being a girl.
Renji- uhmm.. this one is complicated. Like Inoue but Renji's situation is worse. Just look at those years they've been together..
Isshin- Im sure he likes Rukia enough for his son. He already claimed her to be his third daughter after all.
It's good you chose these people to write about. :D

Aw... so sweet
| toni chapter 1 . 10/14/2009
wow, this is very good. i really like it. i think all of them were pretty much in character :)
| Mariagoner chapter 1 . 8/19/2009
This is really wonderfully done and I adore the way you really delve into the minds of everyone as they watch Ichigo and Rukia utterly fail to keep their activities a secret. I especially love Karin's bit- it's sounds exactly like her!

Well, I liked it. Odd way to present the story, but I think it works really well. The scene while they're doing maths homework was my favourite, in case you wanted to know, :P
You're a really wonderful author. I'll be watching! *Grins*.

I liked this history! Very lovely.
| Elessae chapter 1 . 2/12/2009
This is lovely, as are all your works. I love how the other characters, even when you are using them to communicate Ichigo and Rukia's relationship, retain their own voices regardless, and have their own stories to tell, and their own angst to combat. Sometimes, I feel them more than I do the IchiRuki subtext, although I know the story is geared towards that narrative. I find that marvelous, and well-accomplished, and I love the sensation of Ichigo and Rukia lurking everywhere, and hiding things, and thinking they are good at it. In a way, readers (or shippers of IchiRuki) are just like your characters in what we can see, no?
Thank you for sharing this - it has been a pleasure to read.

This was really well done. I felt like you captured the characters really well, especially Isshin and Renji. Good job and keep up the good work. Great writing and description too!
| VanishingSoul chapter 1 . 10/4/2008
Wow. You captured the charcter's perfectly. This was great!
| Leigh chapter 1 . 9/3/2008
I liked Kon's and Isshin's the best. Kon is such an under-appreciated character; it's a shame how he's almost always used just for comic relief... not many people remember that he was once unwilling to harm an ant because he believed all life was important.
This line made me lol: "Besides, it's not like he can get her pregnant, unless the 12th division has gotten very creative with its gigai since Isshin left."

What is the term for a secret known by many people? In Spanish it's 'secreto a voces'. It happens to be one of my favorite idioms of the language. Funny how Ichigo and Rukia must think that they're being perfectly secretive. Unfortunately, I don't believe that they have arrived to that stage of their relationship. Yet.
I love your characterizations of everybody. My favorite is Isshin. I feel kind of sad for him. And Renji, too. How he would do anything for her... amazing. But you deserve a prize for Kon's, you portrayed his little child-like mind perfectly. I imagine that must be hard...
| Oleander-Tea chapter 1 . 7/6/2008
Very cute and very well written. The reactions from "the friends" are insanely accurate, but I feel like the Ichigo and Rukia that your portrayed were a lot more mature than they would be. Or at least Ichigo...he's still a kid.
But that's why fanfiction exists period. :) This was a wonderful read.
