Somebody acknowledged that they have different voices!
For that, this story is followed automatically.
And the girls DO have a point- it's just like Kyoya to be able to tell the little shits apart.
I have a bad feeling that this is just a Pair the Spares story- where you put Hikaru and Haruhi together and then put Karou and Kyoya together since otherwise he'd be alone... but I hope you defy my expectations.

Aw I love the twins mom in this, and Hikarus little jealousy
| EternalFalsity chapter 4 . 11/15/2013
Im such a huge fan of Kaoru and Hikaru, but I really like this story and how its written

At first I didn't like Kyouya because he seemed too mean/bossy in the beginning. the "shadowking" was overkill. now Im starting to really like their personalities and the direction lf this story, very cool setup

I must say this is rather interesting. I liked Kaoru with practically anyone, my personal favorite being Hikaru/Kaoru, but I love Kyouya/Kaoru too! This is the best Kyouya/Kaoru ever!

This was the second time I read this story-and I realized I never reviewed (which I'm sorry for).
So here it is:
I've always been intrigued with the twin's shaky yet strong relationship. I enjoy reading stories and people's interpretation of it. I feel you twisted it- but in the most beautiful, yet stressing (angst-filled) way (which was shown already in the anime and manga, but you highlighted it well in your literature).
The way you wrote this, it could have happened in the manga/anime. You captured the personalities of everyone (ignoring the fact that Tamaki and Hikaru were /a little/ too meddlesome). I can clearly see the both of them being jealous of Kaoru's and Kyoya's relationship.
I love how you seem to understand everyone's prospective-everyone's issues- everyone's emotions. I could guess that you spent /some/ time studying every character (or you just have amazing concept-grasping skills).
The story was very sweet. Even though it's in the Angst Genre, it's still in the classic OHSHC theme of being funny at times to loosen tension. And even though this story has it's tough moments, I consider it to be a "fluff". This story is a wonderful example of the phrase, "bitter-sweet".
The plot line was smooth and realistic (in a sense of the anime). The build up was great, the climax easing nicely into the resolution. The rises in the plot was easy to recognize, and were well placed. The story was simply plot-wise, but complex in emotion and bonds.
There were minor typos- however nothing that a quick scan/edit couldn't fix. It was easily looked over in the magic of your words. Nothing seemed repetitive and your paragraphs sure and full.
I enjoyed this story a lot. Like- /a lot lot/. I was always curious about those "crack pairings", however you made it seem natural. I now look for this pairing among others. I'd like to thank you for converting me. I have no doubt in my mind- I will most likely come back to this piece again and reread it. And then maybe once more.
Thank you so much for sharing. I know why this was the first yaoi fanfic to pop up with the most favorites.
A satisfied reader,

...Congratulations, this fanfic had single-handedly converted me into shipping Kyouya/Kaoru. I didn't think that it would be possible to like a pairing do quickly, but you've proven me wrong!
And the funny thing is that I've never even considered this pairing before. It's a tad unusual, and I clicked on it more out of curiosity than anything, but found myself captivated halfway through the first chapter. And you handled everything so well throughout the entire story! It was touching, emotional, and still somehow kept the Ouran-styled humor that we all love. This is a really amazing story, and I've just fallen in love with your writing. As well as the pairing of Kyouya/Kaoru.
I shall go see your other OTNK-verse stories now!

New otp! I love this
| SisterOfScarletDevil chapter 8 . 7/5/2013
Oh my god you had me squealing throughout this entire story! :D I love this pairing sooo much, and this story was absolutely fabulous!

So sweet! *cries*
The confession was my favorite part, with Kaoru crying and saying "I really like you!" WAY too cute! I also loved when Hikaru told Kaoru he knew he wasn't gay. I lol'd.
Two things this fic did perfectly that so many others don't:
1. The humor. First, it existed, and second, it was so Ouran-style and not weird and distracting.
2. The rest of the characters had a role! I can't tell you how much this impressed me. I especially like how you wrote Honey and Renge.
My only tiff is when Kyouya carried Kaoru to bed, which struck me as a bit ooc.
The pacing was also really nice. It wasn't too fast at all but also not some long will they/won't they story.
In short, really cute and really well-written! Fantastic!

many things to say . . . where to start? . . . lets start with i loved the secrete love life of Mori-sempai & Haruhi :) i also love the simple little hints soooo cute! Then, the last part of this story i had to read twice! sooo well written! . . . um, well, i don't know if there should be a sequel, my honest opinion, I'm afraid the story will get ruined. Oh ya, the convincing Kyouya's dad was very realistic (specifically the part where he tries to set Kyouya up with Tamaki). Although some would say that his dad would think family appearance would be more important then the money earned though the union, i would prefer to see it end the way you ended it :)
