|Reviews for Smoke and Flowers|
| Nagasasu chapter 8 . 2/20
Hi, I actually read this story many many years ago, and since I was in the mood for Nanao/Shunsui again after all those years I re-read both this and Breathing Lessons. I just wanted to let you know how very much I still like these stories, and that reading them has brought me just as much joy this time around. :) While it's been such awhile, I certainly wouldn't mind if you ever chose to resume posting fics here. I've always liked Smoke and Flowers, both for its elements of h/c and it's slow burn.

Oh my wow. Just WOW. I guess this is completed, but I would not mind more of this artwork you call fanfiction. Half my enjoyment of this story was from the content and half from your way with words. I read straight through and couldn't stop to review after each chapter, so I forget the specific examples I had in mind, but there were a few times when I had to stop just to admire the literary quality of the prose in front of me. You are far above the standard for my fanfiction reading and I relish it; I will be sad when I finish going through your work that I'll read (i.e., the Bleach stuff). By the way, I came here from the Authors section of the Bleach fanfic Recommendations page at TV Tropes (and I agree with the recommendation).

I just wanted to say, though I know you will probably never see this... You are amazing. Completely amazing. I just finished reading Breathing Lessons as well, and I've never laughed so hard in my life. And in this story, when Nanao yells "Pistol!" through the wall, I think I cracked a rib. The darker intrigue of this story is nothing short of utterly captivating; thank you for sharing at least this much with us. :)

"Mmmm….have her dipped in chocolate and sent to my quarters…" Shunsui said dreamily, his eyes lidding over completely.
This is only ONE of my favorite moments in this story...holy crap i was dying laughing when he said this and i died laughing at all the other hilarious moments of this fic, lol I have to say I was skeptical to read this bc you haven't updated in a loooooooooong time and sometimes I can't stand reading fics that are not done bc I have ZERO patience. I am SOOOOOOO happy that I changed my mind, I know this isn't how they became Captain and Vice but I love it none the less, their battle scene in the beginning was beautifuly written and the way it ended with him freaking out that he was gunna kill her (Nanao satisfied at his shock as she cut his hat off LOL), is surprisingly very them, for lack of a better word.
I love the character you have created with the Sixth seat. I think she brings great personality to the story as a another female who doesn't fall for Shunsui's puppy eyes lol.
I very very VERY much hope that you will finish this story. As far as this couple goes you have mastered their personalities and the banter between them with such grace and fines it leaves me in tears of joy and laughter! But I digress...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE update soon, I want to know what happens, and reading your stories always makes my day.
Thank you for bringing this wonderful story into my life I hope you update ASAP FOR YOUR LOYAL FANS! 3

I really enjoyed your story. You write very well.
Very interesting idea and I absolutely LOVE Shunsui and Nanao. Please update the story as I am VERY interested to see how it ends.
| Guest chapter 9 . 4/24/2013
Awesome story. Seriously I love the way you write. Please continue, the story is really good and I would love to read more.

(From an outsider who decided to return to old fandoms and periodically sample fanfics from them)
With regards to this whole piece- it's really really lovely. I don't even know what to focus on- I love your dialogue and just the little witty bits in it that shine through and just almost everything about the Nanao-Shunsui dynamic written here, so thank you very much for writing it _
I'm sorry to say that I don't really have that much constructive criticism to add- and since this seems to have been put up quite a WHILE ago, I guess I'll just sort of awkwardly leave my compliments here...? But I hope you continue to write fanfics for whichever fandom you've decided to grace. Your writing is fantastic

Huh. I liked the odd symmetry of Gin simply saying "Sir" to Aizen, in the end.
| HecatonchiresLM chapter 9 . 2/1/2013
Is that the end or is there supposed to be more?
| LazyNezumi chapter 9 . 1/14/2013
You have no idea, how much I wish you continued. Woah, WOMAN, this is amazing story and...
I would really love to read the rest.
Do we need a little persuasion? Or maybe a blackmail? XD I will gladly do anything for an update!
| MerryKitten chapter 9 . 1/12/2013
This was amazing! I love fics that could be canon. Particularly with these characters. Thank you!
| Yukiie chapter 9 . 1/12/2013
I truly enjoyed this. it is VERY good.
please don't just stop here. D:
| Zara Allegra Vespertine chapter 9 . 12/24/2012
What?! That's it?! You have such an affinity for number nine that you just have to stop there?! (Cries.) how can u be so cruel in leaving us panting for more...
I want more (howls)

This is definitely more AU than I'm used to reading (or, should I say, more AU while still in the Bleach world than I'm used to), but very intriguing all the same. I particularly like Nanao's thoughts on the Eighth's habits, and Shunsui is always a class act. Sixth is entertaining, as well. And this last bit here, with Aizen and Gin, certainly has me thinking...
Looking forward to reading more!
May the words just flow,
