Ah, I don't think I can adequately express how absolutely, utterly beautiful amd well-written this is. This is not a pairing I'd ever usually consider, but you make them and their interactions so natural, and yet really not. Their thoughts and feelings are depicted very realistically, and I loved every single one of their conversations. Gevanni and Rester were great here too. And, for some reason, that one bit about Near making sure Mello was buried next to L made me so, so sad and the grief from both of their deaths just sort of hit me anew, and. I almost cried. Yeah. The last bit was beautiful, and I think I'm going to be taking a screenshot and reading it over and over because dear god, it is gorgeousthis story-shaped part of their existence comes to a closecan i die that is so fucking pretty). Thanks so much for writing this!

This story was amazing. I have never read a NearxMatt fic before, but I have to say, this story certainly got me hooked on the pairing! It was beautifully written, and you did a fantastic job when writing the character interactions. Not once did I feel anyone was out of character.
Well done- there aren't many authors that write as well as you, let alone on such a rare pairing.

This was so fucking charming and clever and I'm not one for "what if blank happened instead" stories but you knocked it out of the park. Matt and Near were so in character it was Eerie and it just felt like a great wrap up to Death Note as a whole.

WOW. This was amazing. Everything about it is just perfect - the characterization was impeccable, the concept and plot were very unique and original, and the writing was awesome. I loved how you paced the story, and used various authors and their works, too. It gave me so many feels! D
Kudos, it was brilliant.

Fantastically written! That is all. Lol, not really. I actually like this pairing.. which is odd, because I don't usually like Near, but I do in your story. Thank you!

I loved it. It was amazingly sweet and well-written. As a friendship, as a relationship, and simply as characters, people - fantastic.

I liked this. Your Matt is probably one of the best I've read. The relationship here is built very well, also, and I thought it was interesting that Matt didn't like to be abandoned, giving what happened with Mello and L. Good job.
