| Viridian chapter 1 . 12/7/2002
What a delightful story! This sort of ending never quite occurred to me, but it is a fascinating resolution.
| KitsuneDreams chapter 1 . 8/30/2002
This is my fave so far!
| Valkarie chapter 2 . 8/14/2002
That was absolutely great!...omg..i'm off to read the next sequel!
| Ah-choo chapter 2 . 8/8/2002
OMG! You write so well! I'm adding you to my favorites.
| MysticMew chapter 2 . 7/31/2002
I didn't read much Conan-fics so far. The series is still in its first run over here in Germany. But that, THAT was GOOD! Really, well written, both prequel and this so far (am going to definately read the sequel). I cannot tell you about Ai since we aren't there yet, but with Conan/Shinichi and Ran you caught their characters amazingly well. That was deep and had a quality to it, you don't see often and that I respect very much. You managed this well and I'm sure I'm going to love second wind!
Ja ne, yours
| dadaiiro chapter 2 . 5/23/2002

| Arcynic chapter 2 . 5/11/2002
Oh...loved the story! Its so shweet! ::Sniff:: I actually read half of second wind before I realized that there were two prequels to it, so I read them, and I loved them!
And on an ending note, I must say that u are such a talented authoress and that you are extremely smart! I mean.. the Rin/Irene thing was so awesome and you have so many twists and stuff! To put it simply, I LOVE your stories!
| Hakaisha chapter 2 . 4/7/2002
O_O Wow...I-I don't believe this. *stares blankly* Ran did WHAT? Oh God, I'm dreaming...somebody pinch me so I can wake up and say to myself that I've been dreaming...
You really emphasized on the helplessness of the whole situation here, Ysabet. The prices one sometimes have to pay for love is great, after all...I just can't believe Ran would make that big of a sacrifice. True, I don't argue against it...but somehow, I doubt she had been thinking clearly about all of the OTHER consequences.
Everyone was perfectly in-character - especially Ai. I LOVE Haibara Ai! That sarcastic attitude that covers the caring deep inside is just SO kewl! (Sorry, I tend to chatter) An exceptionally caring gesture on her part, as well as the first time she's given in to 'love', I guess. Guess people do change after all...
The way you named Ran into Himitsu Rin was great...especially that Sherlock Holmes bit! If it were any other situation, I'd be rolling on the ground at the mere THOUGHT of what the look on Conan/Shinichi's face would be...alas, this fic doesn't exactly bring out the humor bit in me. It was romantic, it was angsty...
"Wow" is all I can say. O_O I wish *I* can write that well...well, since I can't, I'll be happy to read your stuff instead. Now excuse me while I go gawk at this some more...
| Hakaisha chapter 1 . 4/7/2002
Well, since cut my review off for 'The Window', I guess I'll write it here and write your other review for this fic in the next chapter. -_-
It's true what you've written in your A/N's; the series is almost CHILDISH if you think about it, yet the situation with Conan/Shinichi is just so desperately SAD...if this was a safe thing, old people around the world would be rejoicing, and they'd have a lot of people being a kid again; but when you're the ONLY ONE, alone...and fearing for your life, the situation is just so sad it brings tears to your eyes if you think about it long enough...
Also, 'The Window' was very, VERY, _*VERY*_ touching...I especially liked the way you portrayed 'Conan', looking up at Ran in the window with those eyes that seems to know so much, and hide it even more...the eyes that shouldn't belong to a child of '8'...and the way that the Shinichi phantom was, like, hovering over 'Conan' throughout the whole thing was really good. _ It was just written so well with so much vivid description that I could just IMAGINE the whole thing...maybe I should lay off the ghost stuff, ne? It seems to be getting to my head...
Brilliant, BRILLIANT writing, Ysabet-san. I better wrap this up so I can actually write a review for THIS fic...plus I want to read all the sequels! _
| Apparition chapter 2 . 2/25/2002
*Appaluses* This is even better than 'The Window'. It is really a worthy sequel, though a little expectable, only the general I mean It can't be helped. [Sigh] I wish I could write as good as half of that.
| Icka M. Chif chapter 2 . 1/30/2002
The shortest hour in the world is reading a good story, that makes the time go by faster.
-ICKA! the IMP
| yume chapter 2 . 12/11/2001
::sinff:: wow... that was so good. i never thought about the possibility of Ran turning into a kid like Shinichi. i even cried when i was reading the fic, it was soo heartwarming. please write more, you're wonderful! _
| Sai chapter 2 . 11/15/2001
Oh, I love this story! Please write a sequl to this! I want to find out How Ran's parents react to her transformation, and how Ayumi will react when she finds out Conan has a girlfriend! Ran's first day in elementary will be so interesting! Please write more! Keep up the good work!
| anime fan chapter 1 . 11/10/2001
kawaii! just one question...how is ran's dad gonna take that conan was shinichi the entire time? probably rip shinichi's head off...
| Rb chapter 2 . 11/6/2001
"Look - our hands are the same size." For some reason, that line really sticks in my mind. A very worthy sequel. Write moooore! _ I really loved this, I'm just incoherent. _
