|Reviews for Shall Never See So Much|
| merlinity chapter 32 . 2/26
Thank you for everything- We That Are Young Shall Never See So Much was brilliant, even if not complete. You're an amazing writer, and I'm pretty sure anything I'd have to say has already been said. Good luck on your current projects!

In the event that you do return to this fic, however unlikely, you will have a dedicated readership waiting patiently. Thank you for releasing both this and its prequel to the public domain. I wish you the very best.

Thank you for the story. It was wonderful

Thanks for the lovely story. I know it's highly unlikely you'll ever continue, but I can hold out hope.
I just want to say that this has become my head-canon for Roy's and Riza's backstory.

Was such a lovely lovely story while it lasted, thank you for the 31 chapters x) know that it is highly unlikely, but still hoping you might continue this again in the future (:

I am so very sad that you have chosen to put this piece on permanent hiatus. After finishing the prequel I was very happy that there was going to be a sequel and after a couple hours of voraciously reading this story I find that it will not be continued. I understand that real life takes precedent over entertaining us lol, but I am still quite devasted haha (I know, I'm being very dramatic) well, I just wanted to let you know that your stories have gotten me through my real life problems (such as trying to study my LSATs in vain), it has helped me de-stress a bit and for that, I thank you :-). I know you said that it was highly unlikely that this piece would be continued but I will still hold out some hope that you might continue this one day. As you already know, this story has brought so much joy to a lot of people, so here's to hoping!

I think chapter 32 broke my heart more than anything else.
But I'm glad you wrote this. Thank you.

... . Once again, I'm a little speechless, because it's still awesome. But not enough to not say this: I read the AN before I started the story, and I thought, 'Well, okay, no Ishbal. I'm just going to pray to see Roy earn his moniker then. Pass the test. etc.' And I counted down the chapters, and when the Kimblee arc happened, I figured it wouldn't even get close. Then, it got closer - and to have it end ONE. CHAPTER. AWAY? Agony. Pure, god-forsaken agony.

E...to... don't want to be irritating, but I thought that the exam cost fifteen THOUSAND sens, not hundred. Just thought I'd mention.
I love this story. It's such a perfect accompaniment to the series as a whole and it provides us fans with more knowledge about the lesser-talked-about characters' backstories.

I'm very sad to hear that there won't be more of this fic, but I wanted to thank you for being my introduction to FMA fanfiction. It was an awesome one.
I hope RL is treating you well!

Lol. Y'know, it's highly ironic that Maes seems to have a near phobia-level dislike of hearing about other people's romantic escapades when in the series he's aaaaaaaallllll about talking about his beloved wife and child. :)

Wow. I actually thought that there was some other reason that you quoted "Voca me cum benedictis" differently. I've performed the Requiem and figured maybe it's different outside of a musical score. Little did I know you made it part of the plot! ;)
I'm really hoping that the matter of the undelivered letters that Roy sent comes up before I reach the end of what you've written so far...

I just completed this story and the prequel. I love your style and ability to really pull me into the story. The little remarks in your descriptions in people and places, the back story to Roy and Riza all make your story so compelling and easy to read.
Thank you so much for sharing it here and I hope one day you will be able to complete it :)

At first, I did not want to read this fic because I saw that it was dead (and I really don't like being left hanging), but when I saw the glowing reccomendations on tvtropes I decided I had to check it out. So, I voraciously consumed this story and We That Are Young within the span of four days, reading in every spare minute I had because it was just that captivating. Seriously, I love these two stories so much.
Seeing the plight of young Roy and Riza, struggling through so many problems and so much pain, and then striving for a better future simply makes my heart ache (in a good way). I especially loved reading about the mother's downward spiraling towards insanity, and the father's subsequent descent into madness himself. It was such an intricate and realistic portrayal of how death can not only irrevocably shatter someone's life, and everyone else around them. Simply sublime.
I also loved your integration of characters and events from canon, both subtle and obvious. Mentionings of the Rockbells, Gracia, Grumman, Kimblee, and others was intriguing, and I especially loved the Hughes family. They were amazing characters, and seeing Hughes being his friendly, energetic self makes me miss him even more.
I so dearly wish you would continue this. This was one of the best fanfiction- one of the best stories, even- I have ever had the delight to read, and you have fans who I know love this as much as I do. And with Brotherhood avaiIable on Hulu, as well as the FMA wiki, I don't see how brushing up on canon would be that difficult.
But I understand that sometimes authors want to move on from a work, so I'll leave it at that. Thank you for his marvolous story, and goodbye. :)
(but I'll follow his story just in case. You never know...)
