Reviews for A Beautiful Oblivion
nimuelsa chapter 1 . 8/25/2015
Actually, for some reason, I keep coming back and rereading this fic. This must be the eighth time I've reread this really. Finally, I'm reviewing and somehow, it feels less. And yet far more.

Before I read this, I was not invested in Axel and Roxas. I considered them a nice pairing, but not particularly emotional. Now you've made me genuinely invested you horrible, horrible person.

(No, I love you because you're amazing and Jesus Christ, you're a favourite among my Kingdom Heart authors now)

The ending was ambiguous. Which I both love and dislike because, because, dammit! My feelings cannot be toyed with like this. The Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer was already enough pain. ;_; But I liked it. A lot.

(You horrible, horrible being, making me love you so much yet dislike you for the ambiguity and yet adore you for it.)

Roxas in this, he reflects Sora very, very well. Sora has depths that most people wouldn't see, and you see it, and then you see the reflection, the possibility that Roxas is. And then you create your own subtly different but no less emotional evoking than the original.

Axel. . .I think for him, it was like gambling. Low stakes, nothing to lose, plenty to know. Except it turned more dangerous. It's all too dangerous, the way you just; you just make me feel about them.

It's beautiful in the ambiguity and Roxas. . .I didn't say why he is so powerfully emotive did I? There's the "simple-minded" and then there are those who feign it with practiced skill. I think on some level, Sora knows that. He knows that he is not always so positive and isn't as much as practiced skill as it is. . .well. His situation hasn't brought out the cynical hidden by positive. Roxas however, you capture the cynicism and positiveness through the fact he doesn't seem to be moved and instead kisses Axel.

If I don't have him through this. . .well I gave it a shot. Roxas knows he's supposedly a Nobody, but if I can feel. . .it must mean something. Basically, you managed to captivate me and transcend whatever levels of expectation I had for this fic. :D

Thank you. I don't usually review, mostly due to the fact I go on and on and on. But. . . This was special. It was beautiful and wonderful and made me think a lot. You're amazing by the way, even if you didn't have this kind of talent with writing.

THAT WAS PRETTY SEXY FOR A T RATING, MADAM. ;D (Obviously, that wasn't a complaint.) 8D

Short but terribly poignant. Loverly. :D :D

I actually looked up my own name, cause I was bored, but forgot to change the search criteria to author. I saw your story, and saw the AkuRoku, and thought, hey, might as well read it, right? Well, that was the best choice I've made all day!

Enough of my ramblings. Great job!

Dazzling.

You did a splendid job emphasizing the complexity of Axel and Roxas's relationship and managed to be beautiful and descriptive without making it look like you're trying too hard.

Um, well, I can't really say much more.

I don't want to use up all of my decent adjectives just yet, because I expect that I'll be dropping quite a few more reviews on your stories.

So, for now, I'll say well done, jolly good, and do keep it up.

Pip pip, cheerio.

:)

Nice. (wow. look at my eloquence. now i know why i write)

Sorry :D to be slightly more helpful ( or even just slightly):

Very nice piece. It didn't induce any amazing highs or lows but it was still a very enjoyable read. Also i liked your portrayal of Axel, different to the norm, intriging and well expressed. I Wouldn't mind seeing more of it. :)

That was so sad, but I like the happy ending!
jacefacexx chapter 1 . 9/19/2007
that was... bittersweet i must say. it was a very good story, and i loved the akuroku of course, but it definitely made me feel.. something in my chest. i dunno quite what it was, but it felt interesting :)

great job!

I find this one particularly interesting. You can see that Axel really thought he had planned this, that everything was going to go his way. And yet, he still can't quite predict -what- Roxas is going to do next. I think I was as surprised as Axel though!

When Roxas asks if it means anything, and Axel says no, you just have to feel a little sad for them. Because it should, but it truly doesn't. Having no feelings must be hard, and you do an awesome job of showing they have none. They know they should, but they still can't. It's like... no one taught them how to love.

These two make me so sad. But also, this ending was a perfect fit. )

Gah... I think I died several times while reading this.

... that's a good thing, just to let you know. (er... kind of..
kuriqa chapter 1 . 8/17/2007
wow... short simple and to the point... it's nice to see into the musings of axel's mind tho... he's so complex... roxy is just emo... course he has reason to be... but not he point... this was really good!

omg...I think this one was the most touching. I have no idea why. I'm literally crying. Again, for an unknown reason. The way you write is like...amazing.

/sighs happily/ Oh, I love short, introspective pieces like this. And this one is just absolutely perfect! Axel's thoughts, the way they spin from Roxas to memories to pondering about the situation he's all but trapped himself in, almost-willing prisoner though he is. Just everything about this...it's worded /perfectly/. The writing's impeccable, and there's such an odd feeling of soft desperation and confusion here...Ah, I love it!
