Reviews for Videotape
Pessimisma chapter 1 . 3/23/2014

But seriously though, this is the first time I've read a depressing 8059 fic and this is WONDERFUL. Oh my god, the way you write makes me wanna lay down and just sob forever. It's very well-written.

"Yamamoto," he says quietly, looking into the lens before directing his gaze to something in the distance, "Did I ever tell you how much I love your smile?"

That line made me choke up and cry a little.
God, the gut wrenching feels I get from reading this...

Amazing job. I loved it.

I asked for some angsty 8059 fanfiction on tumblr and someone recommend me this fic.
I'm still crying.
It is so beautifully written. Yamamoto's feelings, I can still feel his raw pain and the videotape itself. I love how Gokudera recorded so many times, and how he was changing. How happy they were.
I don't know, I will remember this for a long time... Your Yamamoto, your Gokudera, I liked them both, su much.
Heartbreaking story, love it!

AppleSweetRose chapter 1 . 1/25/2012
A part of me died reading this. I cannot... I cannot handle this. I just can't. This was too raw. So much pain. So much grief and by the end I felt like curling up into a ball and just drown in the pain. This... this just felt too... real. Too much. Just ugh, it was too much.

Granted, I'm a crybaby so I can't say this was great because it made me bawl my eyes out. However, it is a fic I will remember for a long, long time. This made such a deep impression on me. This was raw.

I think what is so much more amazing is that I recognise this Yamamoto, or should I say, I love this type of Yamamoto. There are few that can write him into this beautiful, haunted, introspective, raw, full of angst, deep man. And I never loved him more when he is written that way: a character that isn't a caricature, where Yamamoto is a flawed human being and is so very relatable, where he is an ordinary man who has so much depth but where you never feel as if you can't understand him; he is a simple man with a lot of emotions and a lot of thoughts and you feel as if you -know- him.

I only know of only two authors who wrote him as all of those combined and only one of the two does it better and continues to excel at writing him like that. I always look for him when I search for fics centred around him, as the other half of the main pair in a story.

I have to admit I only have just begun reading fics with him as a part of the main pair, mainly 8018 and 8059 (actually just started a little over a month ago, reading my first fanfiction here on this site and LJ, in a fandom I'm currently obsessing over). Went through almost every 8018 fic on here and just started on a couple of 8059 ones. So I might find more gems like this one and I hope I do.

Anyways, I just want to say... this touched me so deeply, made me cry (definitely not hard to do) and left a deep impression on me. I will remember this for a long time. I will probably reread this a lot, especially when I'm in a masochistic mood haha

Thank you for this fic, and I'll be looking to see if you have any more of my Yamamoto.

I just cried my heart out. I usually choose some fics and I go to my bed so I can read before sleeping, but your fanfic I had to save in my favs, so I could write you this review. Please, do not stop writing. I saw you posted only this fic here, but if you do finish any others of 8059 I'll be pleased to read them. You write marvelously XDDD Keep up with the great work. I can feel you put your heart into this, and I am always waiting to read stories like these. (ps: I see 59 reviews now XDD And I'm really sorry that I'll be 60 haha)
Halloween567 chapter 1 . 9/9/2011
That was- amazing.

You simultaneously turned me into an avid shipper of the pairing and reduced me to a bawling baby.

Azakura chapter 1 . 7/11/2011
A-aMAZING. It's hard to imagine anyone NOT choking up on this story. Death is truly heartbreaking. TY for writing this.
boomzgleeks chapter 1 . 4/29/2011
Hi phantasmatical,

I logged in just to review this story. I don't really read charater death or angst and tragedy, but it was raining and I was emo and I thought... Well, I never expected how shockingly beautiful this fic would be. I think it's a disgrace how you have only written one, but this one fic is one of the best I have ever read.

You had me crying, and I've never cried due to a fic before. I think you had them totally in character. Thank you for the fic, and I hope you write some more.

This One-Shot made me cry...

It's so beautiful

You discribed the emotion of Takeshi very well

I really can image that when Gokudera ever made a videotape for yamamoto it would be like this

Really nice writting
Gloomy Gloo chapter 1 . 1/9/2011
I didn't think I was going to cry when I read this fic since I was already bracing for angst. But, I bawled. Once the videotape started playing I just couldn't hold back my tears. The way you wrote Yamamoto's responses were so heartfelt and real that I couldn't help but feel his pain.

You executed this story beautifully; this angst is just what I needed. Thank you.
