I've been reading your Fruits Basket stories.. they're lovely. And this one particularly captures my heart. I adore that scene of phone call between hateful Shigure and regretful Kureno in the manga - so this story's plot already piqued my interest.
It's well written, well-portrayed, and somehow I do think that Kureno must have felt something for Akki - at least care and affection other than simply pity - after all those years being with her (that Kureno had to leave for good with or without Arisa).
Plus - the relationship between Shigure and Kureno. There are lots of hints in the manga that they used to be very close - but not many fanfics explored that... but you do and that makes my day :)
Sorry for the rant. Anyway I'm fave-ing this story. Thanks for writing!

So deep yet simple. Lovely story!

You write Shigure the way he should be written better than anyone. I can't stand the always fun-loving, simpering, laughing idiot that so many people take him to be. YOU give him the broken heart, the subtle wit, the sly intelligence that he has. Loved this! No one could have shredded Kureno any worse than Shigure did with his words.

Excellently done!

Wow! That was beautiful, I was totally blown away. Really well done! I have got ot ask you, please write some more Shonen Ai fics with these two, or just friends ones, because you do them so bloody well! I love every single one of your stories about them! :) keep up the fantastic work!

This is one of the most touching fanfics I have ever read. I was this close to crying throughout the whole thing. I could literally feel Kureno's pain...and Shigure's. Amazing job.

I have never seen Shigure written so well before. So often, only his ridiculous fun-loving side is seen, with none of the depth that you have given him. Congratulations on an excellent story, and don't feel the need to put yourself down!

i've been always curious;what would Shigure said to Kureno,after "the episode"?

I was pleased to read it!

I think the dialoges are realistic (and fantastic -!)

Shigure isn't jet the fake-happy-man,we know,

Kureno is torn between Shigure and Akito;his friend and his God

“Did you enjoy it?” ach,Shigure...

The unforgiven Shigure,the jelous,spiteful,real Shigure...thats why i love him so much! thank you!

so much emotions...i new favourite...but i didn't understand something (i must be really dumb:()the newspaper...

"Ah, I see. So that’s why."...? non capisco!

Anyway something i get angry...

"I am a very simple writer so please pardon the too simple story-telling..."

WHY? you write so beautiful and you make your readers happy,why feel you the need to apologize?

How do you do it? You say so much in so few words. I found this story to be touching, poignant...heartwrenching. The dynamics of the Sohma are so well expressed.

Other than that, I don't know what to say.

I. Am. Stunned.


This was a magnificent portrayal. Heartrending and deep in the silences.

Shigure was characterized in such an amazing way - reminding me once again why I adored that character. The character who often is forgotten, but who, in my opinion, holds the most facets. (reminds me of Snape from Harry Potter).

I give this fic two thumbs up and a fav.



p.s. as a hint for another plot bunny (altho I might fanfic the idea first... but hey, I can be generous and see what you do with it...): Have you ever looked at the order of the zodiac (the line that it goes in?) Considering that the past AND the present year dance together at the New Years banquet... The pairings are... interesting.. I suggest looking to wikipedia as a good source for info.

just a thought.

I made the discovery earlier this year... but haven't yet got around to ficcing it. Your talent might be well used on this one...
