|Reviews for Four Months Before the Golden Rooster|
| kaze chapter 1 . 4/5
Good story but..
Hong Kong barely existed before the 1700's under the Qing Dynasty.

Alright...where to even begin. I've spent the better part of a month getting through this fic, because my God friend, you've written enough to nearly rival Order of the Phoenix in word length alone, let alone comprehension level. In terms of quality and consistency of writing, detail to plot, depth of character and reader engagement, this is, without a doubt, the best fanfiction I've ever read. You've managed to weave a richly detailed narrative reminiscent of The Scarlet Letter in tone, I think, without becoming over the top of overly-floral in your language. It simply doesn't read like a fic, it reads like a polished novel. Your OC's are fleshed out, and your setting, while familiar in other Clow era fic, is more deeply thought out than any I've seen.
I am in LOVE with what you're doing with bringing the cards to life. It's deeply influencing my headcanon and ideas for what I ant to do in my own universe. I especially loved that you not only continued the trend of dividing Sword to Kero and Shield to Yue, but deriving it from his own heart. That was brilliant.
On a matter of personal taste with characterization, we differ significantly. Your Yue is not what I usually prefer exactly, nor is your Kero or Clow. Nor that I find them out of character in the least, simply an interpretation I'm not personally the biggest fan of. However, I kept coming back, and reading more. The depth of your characters had me wanting to know what happened next, even if not everything was what I would always seek out on my own.
Really, I'm not sure what else I can say but...DAMN.

So sorry to hear about the personal life hardships you had been going thru (although I am sure I'm reading this way later than you posted it) I hope all is well.
Oh my goodness. I'm on chapter 14 now. I am thrilled. Just thrilled. I must say it took me a while to complete the beginning of this section. I am pretty sure that is because I keep losing my place as I am reading on my smartphone. I love the angst-y direction this is going. Clow really seems to be losing it. And the scene between CxY.. I could feel the way Yue was feeling. My heart was beating, I felt blush, and that sudden bout of anger and disappointment at Clow wishing him a happy birthday! Bravo!
I cannot wait to sneak my phone out at work tomorrow to continue. Until then, goodnight.

I spent several hours awake last night in the deepest bouts of insomnia and read the first chapter, the second and part of the third before I finally got too sleepy to read any more. I am absolutely blown away with this view of Clow and am extremely excited to continue reading this story to see how the beginnings of the sun and moon came to be. I've been thinking about it all day. At work.
Brilliant. Simply brilliant. I'm a Yue/Clow, Yue/Sakura lover and most especially a Yue lover so having to wait till I can read the creation of Yue in this story of yours is killing me. I'm certainly looking at Clow in a very different way. A good way.

Ah, I adored that one! I hope you know that this story is my all time fave ccs fic (:
| End Noesis chapter 1 . 3/7/2013
I have to admit I came across your story after finding out you're the person behind the Midnight Sky community, which I adore because it collects all the cute Y&S stories my little heart desires. This so beautifully written, that I know I will have to take my time to finish it, to savor each line. I'm totally serious. I'm the type of person that scans through fiction and non-fiction (textbooks) rather quickly only to take in the general idea, but there are a few pieces of writing that make me slow down and take it all in. This is one of 'em :)

College is kicking my ass. Even now as I type this review i show be working on the last fifteen hundred words of an eighteen hundred word essay. I've been trying to get to this to read and review since I saw the update. I was out of town for a few days this weekend so even though I saw that I was getting the reviews and knew who they were from through email, I didn't have internet. Not only that, I had the chicken pox. Needless to say I am behind on a lot with two essays due tomorrow and a slew of other assignments to turn in before spring break.
Today though, even with all that work to do, I decided I am going to treat myself and read this. I'm glad I did. I tell you though. It seems I would know from the jump that the beginning was a dream going by your patterns, but I fell into confusion for a minute before it clicked. It was interesting... The English major in me though was like come on Clow, this is a dream. Lol. And then the end. That was not what I was expecting, but the writer and English major in me is slapping myself because I know that when I person screams, it doesn't just have to be a sound of horror. Now my brain is going into overdrive trying to figure out what's going to happen! Why?!
I have to say, I was shocked when I saw the update. I thought it was a review honestly and then when I checked I squealed with delight. Glad to know you're not dead! Keep up the good work.

I am so in love with this story! I only reviewed a few times but I'm looking forward to the next chapter, a fic so well written is very rare nowadays!

Are you going to introduce Xxxholic elements or consider that an alternate universe?
